Vintage arcade artwork. In free, vector goodness. For collectors restoring a piece of arcade history and enthusiasts who want to create some great art to hang in the den. Who doesn't want a giant Q-Bert on their wall?

Cool stuff. There are also some great 3-D arcade cabinet models here for use in the 3Darcade MAME front end, which is a blast to play around with.

I almost submitted this an answer to the EPS question yesterday. What prompted your post? Are you restoring a cabinet?

Awesome, now I can have nightmares about ghost-on-pacman rape every night by wallpapering my room with this.

This rocks. I just got access to a huge 44" roll feed printer.

Gotta hang this over the commode.

Awesome. When I saw this, I almost instinctively looked around to ask my dad for some quarters.

This is massively cool. I feel an artfest coming on...

Absolutely kick-ass site.

I visualize of that time in my childhood in shades of brown, and orange with shag carpet, wood paneled basements, video arcades, and Roger Dean art (lots of early arcade art (and albumn covers from the era) by the brothers Dean).

That site brings back some good memories.

Schweet.

Oh, man, this is great. I don't even know what I'm going to use these for but they're all mine now.

Does anyone know the name of the character from this image? I thought I knew my Guilty Gear characters, but I can't seem to find anyone that looks like him on wiki.

I realize this may be too late to save you from rasterbation, but I don't think you rasterbate vector images. I mean, you can if you want, but it's kind of silly.

Mister Cheese, might that be Ky Kiske with black hair for some reason?
