Memba the box art for the original Megaman? (included after the jump) Memba how ridiculous it was? Totally mislead the buyer as to what the hell they were about to play. I can’t say the following art print would have implied game play any better but it certainly would have helped sell more games or would this be a case of “Megaman Sells But Who’s Buyin?” See that was actually a little bit of a Megadeath Qoute. The band had these custom made by artist Basilio Mendez for their Ft. Lauderdale show which took place this past weekend. Because of licenseing issues we probably won’t see this awesome illustration on any other merchandise. So you’ll be lucky to find just the poster on ebay, at some insane price, I’m sure. You can see more of Basilio Mendez’s concert posters and other work (some of which is not safe for work) on his MySpace page, which, of course, automatically plays heavy metal music as soon as the site loads.
