Guy on ebay is selling these. Are they levity or just printing them off. Any thoughts and do you like it better?

Legit not levity

#3 7 years ago

I think that's the guy making a bunch of alternate translites on ebay. I don't know about legitimacy, but as long as it's printed on thin enough mylar for light to shine through (and has necessary masking to block out light where it's not supposed to), then it should be good.

It is legit guy over on RGP came out with them they are basically a revamped version of the original movie poster.

#5 7 years ago

Don't bother. I contacted the guy about a year ago about these. He was very honest and noted that the LAH one didn't come out well, and is very pixelated.

Thanks for the info, I almost pulled the trigger but figured I would bring it here first. Thanks!

Must have scanned directly from the original movie poster

#8 7 years ago

I'd buy one in a heartbeat but word is they are really pixelated...

Maybe that has changed, if you look at the ad on ebay now, it says this is a much sharper version of the previous translite.

ahh, I hadn't read that. Try messaging the guy. I don't know who he is, but I recall he was very forthright about that, so I'm sure he would tell you if it sucks, is ok, or all good now.

#11 7 years ago

Il message him and see what he says.

Yes, The art has been updated with a high quality scan of the poster. The image is now much sharper. I sold a few of them at the lower res and had one person complain so I pulled the item. then I had several people contact me looking for it so I offered it again with the disclaimer, but now the disclaimer is gone and the image quality is much sharper, Im certain you'd be very happy with it. Im expecting some more prints this week so if you pick one up I may still be able to get it shipped your way before the weeks end. Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions and thanks, John 720-381-8081.

I paid for it on 5/24. I just sent him a note asking for an update on the status.

#16 7 years ago

Oh ok, if you could let me know what happens with that?

#17 7 years ago

Mine came in the mail today and it looks incredible! The image is very sharp and high quality.

#18 7 years ago

Now I want one, but I don't think he ships to Canada

#19 7 years ago

Heres some pics of mine installed with normal bulbs in backbox.

Its not overly pixelated but does look like it came with the machine in 1993 - I like it!

Oh why can't someone make something like this for Back To The Future! That game needs a new translite badly, preferably something with Michael J. Fox on it!

#21 7 years ago

I like it...... I like it alot..

Looks great, I think this will be my next purchase. My wife can't stand the size of Arnold's face and wants me to get rid of the pin (it is in our living room), new translite should smooth things over (for now).

I feel it should of came with this one, its definatly going to be staying in there.

The idea was back then that once they realised how bad the movie stunk (LAH, DM), they decided to blow up the faces of the stars - to attract people based on them, instead of the movie.

#30 7 years ago

That looks awesome! I will definitely be ordering that ASAP

#31 7 years ago

Definatly worth the money, totally changes the look.. Like there coming Right at You. Glad I got it
