Midway Mappy Kickplate Artwork

Mappy Kickplate Artwork - Mappy Character After I finished up with the final details of the Atari Football reproduction sideart, that freed me up to tackle a much smaller project, Goro and Mappy artwork for the Mappy kickplate (Here are some small images of both of them). Eventually, This Old Game will do reproductions of these characters and they are simple enough that over the course of last night and tonight I was able to vectorize both.

Hopefully I will finish the separations tomorrow night for the Mappy kickplate artwork and that is one more project I can scratch off. These characters will be easy to reproduce, and may be some simple reproductions that Rich tackles as time allows. They will be printed individually in a set and you can then apply them on your cabinet, positioning them separately. Mappy Kickplate Artwork - Goro Character

I wouldn’t think there would be a huge demand for Mappy kickplate artwork. I know I have read a couple of times about the lack of consistent demand for the oversize Mappy marquees that Phoenix Arcade printed. However, Darrin farms things out to a printing company in Chicago (Central Decal) so he has minimum quantity requirements for reproductions. At least with Rich, once the up front film cost is laid out, reprinting cost is minimal. Surely there are a handful of collectors out there with cabinets that have lockbar holes piercing the artwork.

Funny how things shake down. These scans of the kickplate artwork are from a Mappy machine that Joe Magiera had in Chicago for a brief bit that I was also mildly interested in buying. Quickly, Joe sold it to Chris Moore, and Chris sold it to Rich and Rich had it shipped all the way out to Oregon! It wasn’t until it got all the way out to Oregon that I got the scans back. Just kind of funny.

Kent,

I think that the Mappy Kickplate artwork is ‘in the que’ for This Old Game at some point. I don’t have an idea of when and they will probably be a pretty small run. Get with Rich for any estimated timeframes.

Thanks for your quick response Jeff. I have a few people who would be interested. If I find out anything from Rich, I will post it here.

@Kent Murphy:

As will I post anything that I hear from Rich. I know he looked at the Mappy vector files and had started to think through finalizing them, but that is it at this point.

Just received an email from Rich. Rich is hoping to have the Mappy kickplate art available for purchase end of next month. Can’t wait!

Not sure if you saw my post on the lot of printing materials Rich just got entitled ‘Oversize films at This Old Game‘ or not, but either way this new printer and film stock should make his film printing for the Mappy kickplate artwork that much easier.
