I'm on board for Sears Night Stalker being the worst.  There is nothing visually sensible about that box art and looking at the Mattel version that has a Han Solo/Luke Skywalker looking character on it makes one wonder....who the hell approved the artwork in the first place.  A guy in an awkward standing position, wearing tight blue body suit... Wtf 

 

The rest of the Sears boxes, Although not as good as Mattel, still had some good early 80s style to them.  Armor Battle, Baseball, Star Strike and Sub Hunt being some of the better ones.

I always hated the kid on this cover.  I don't know if it's the semi-stoned look he has or that he apparently has the word 'Champ' written on his T-Shirt (YOU'RE a Checkers Champ?  Wow!).

What's amazing is that several of us have different ideas of who these characters look like yet none of us are wrong. You know that's good art when it sparks a sense of familiarity for so many people :thumbsup:

The more I look at that picture (thanks, guys), the more it looks to me like something invisible is trying to pull that woman's head off...

Looks like she's about to drop a raisin in Champ's lap.

Where do you get such large raisins?

 

Aren't they also called prunes?

My thought was either Bill Gates (Good Job Lathe26!)

 

Or Jeffrey Dahmer...

I want to play the game that the Mystic Castle box is depicting.  Those people behind those gates need to be rescued by a strong and brave warrior or a nerd with a disc controller.   I’m one of those.
