I would try to stay away from reposting information that was in the common arcade collecting groups, but I came across this post from Quarter Arcade about Mad Planet control panel overlay reproductions this morning just as it came across the wire. (more…)
A topic came up on KLOV last night via Brian Koening in WI. He got two NOS Pengo control panel overlays in a bulk buy from an operator. Now, there haven’t been an overwhelming amount of people, but it seems as though there are a lot of people who like Pengo, and their control panels have some sort of damage. There have been topics in the past about whether NOS even existed.
Brian is talking about having the CPO’s done on an inkjet and then laminated. Oy! You have got to be kidding me. He has a guy he has an allegience with and wants him to do the Pengo reproductions.
Brian doesn’t answer my emails, I must have done something wrong. But as luck would have it, I was revisiting some arcade collectors websites yesterday. I was on Appolo’s arcade website, and at one time they had a NOS Pengo CPO that they were talking about scanning and vectorizing.
So, I emailed Dawn asking if I could get a scan of the Pengo CPO.
We’ll have to see what she says. From reading their site, they have a ton of turnover in games and may not have it anymore. And she may not give me a scan, or even let me buy a scan or trade for it. Who knows, they don’t know me from anyone else.
I just hope we don’t have to have the first round of reproductions for any of the Pengo artwork be inkjet laminates.
Watch for updates here.
