Looking for RGVAC member “Alphamonster”

I “Ping’d” Eric – “Alphamonster” on the Google Group today, and hope that he has the time to get back to me. At one time, he had a white Mr. Do! and he seems to know his stuff when it comes to arcade games rarely posting on the group. Hopefully he finds my message and is nice enough to shoot me a line.

In another post, a guy by the name of “Keith in NJ” had asked “Eric” (Alphamonster) if he would take some photos of the white character Mr. Do! sideart for him, because he was looking to do the exact same thing I am, reproduce the artwork. I emailed Keith today to see if he ever got a response, or if he was ever able to find photos big enough to reproduce the artwork. We’ll see what he says.

Found an artist on the BYOAC forum today that has been collecting / tracing pieces of Mr. Do art for a project of his since 2005 named Keith Corcoran. I emailed him to see if he knew anything or could lead me in a certain direction on getting the artwork for this game.

Later in the day, Dan emailed me back and gave me some more history on his Mr. Do. He said that he sold it back in 98-99 to PA Gameroom Warehouse. I checked the site, and they have this particular Mr. Do! I couldn’t believe it. I don’t know if it is the same one he had or not, but it also isn’t cheap. You can check it out here, going for the affordable price of a used car at $1195.

Update August 28th, 2008
I never did hear back from Alphamonster way back last year, but I just happened to be looking on the ‘For Sale’ forums on klov and saw a profile of the same name of a collector out in Long Island New York (where I think Eric was located). I ended up emailing him, so hopefully this time I do hear back. Although, I think I sent mail to the same email address (“heman2rit@hotmail.com”) so maybe my luck will be the same.
