A long long time ago, Imagic let you choose a free poster if you joined their "Numb Thumb" club. I remember joining as a kid and not getting my poster for months. Eventually my mom got involved (yeah Mom) and I got the poster. The poster is long gone. I don't even remember which one it was :( but I've acquired a couple of others over the years.

Do you have any? If so, which ones?

I'd also be interested in seeing a list of all the posters Imagic made.

Lastly, if anyone wants to sell or trade theirs, I'd be highly highly highly interested!!

Thomas, do you recall which one you have?

On the front it says "Diesem Angriff werden sie nicht widerstehen" and displays a big Demon Attack bird on black background. On the back there are 6 other games listed.

Probably one of the the largest and coolest videogames posters ever made indeed :)

Yes, (didn't know his first name). He wins just about everything I try to win on ebay (Atari related.) He must be at the very least a millionaire. Sometimes I get lucky when he misses stuff (not often) and when he doesn't want something due to damage or multiple copies. I can usually predict what he is going to bid on about 98% of the time.

:rolling: I've seen him outbid on occasions and it ain't pretty. I've actually outbid him a few times myself, once for the most expensive item i have ever bought.

He has an amazing collection and is one of the coolest guys around.

According to the Imagic catalog - http://www.atariage....4&currentPage=7 - there were 3 posters shown:

Demon Attack
Star Voyager
Trick Shot

The first 2 are easily the most popular, which should make Trick Shot the rarest, yet it tends to command the least money likely because of the game's lesser popularity compared with the first 2, particularly Demon Attack.

The most recent auction went for a silly value, more than the posters have historically gone for. I was bidding until it got into ludicrous speed. "Holy shit, the auction went plaid!" I don't have any of them, but I'd like them. Maybe one day.

And you could select more: http://www.atariage....4&currentPage=6

Atlantis
Cosmic Ark
Demon Attack
Fire Fighter
Riddle of the Sphinx
Star voyager
Trick Shot

The next releases of the catalog show three different posters - http://www.atariage....&currentPage=17 - for club members:

Cosmic Ark
Fire Fighter
Trick Shot

I can't say I've ever seen these black versions before, so I'd mark them as being considerably rarer than the silver releases.

And you could select more: http://www.atariage....&currentPage=18

Just to know with how much care I should handle my own poster: How high?
