Cool stuff. I haven't heard of some of those games. Sterns Jungler looks like a good candidate for It Came From Mame.

I use blacklights in all the rooms in the house that I had laid in with blacklight arcade carpet. I bought a bunch of frames and printed out a flyer with a color laser printer as a proof, I had planned to go to a photo shop and get the ones for hanging printed. When I hung up the proof I was amazed at the effect, the laser printer one not only looked great but it seemed as if it was backlit or even 3D. So laser printed was the way to go. These look great in your home arcade!

My dad's a big digital photography buff. He's got this huge cannon canvas printer. Think something like this:

I'd be awfully tempted to get some nice high rez scans and make some 3' x 4' prints of these.

Sadly, I just moved and lost the man cave. I had to fight to keep the mountain bikes and the boxes of "crap" (i.e. star wars figures and retro games machines). I'm not sure the wife is interested in filling our new place with old arcade flyers.

Also, @mmmbacon you are 100% right that Death Race art is amazing they used to have that machine at an old pizza hut in nevada. It used to scare the CRAP out of me as a kid. It's got that total carnival airbrush vibe that most of the Exidy stuff had.

Check out the Tempest flyer, that one really zings under blacklight.
