It really is. At least Last Action Hero's translite, which half of it is Arnold's face, has a lot of other details. DM's has the three actors huge heads, the police car, explosion behind Sly and lightning in the background. Not a lot of redeeming qualities except for Sandy's manly features.

You could rattle off just about every translite ever made. That's why they weren't silksreened on glass.

Because most of them look like ass.

That is so bad yet it draws you in. I saw one at Expo last year and wanted to play it after seeing that backglass from a distance.

There, I fixed your Hardbody post for you. She looks like Kiss' Paul Stanley, if he worked out.

It's bee said before, but the Shadow is such a great game and such a poor translite. Gotta go with the alternate.

what wrong with ro go? that viking is very proud of his "real doll" purchase and is just showing [her] off to the rest of his clan

So what is the consensus on Big House? I just picked this game up a few months ago. Love it or hate it? Not sure I completely understand it. Is that supposed to be a picture Bonnie and Clyde on the film reel? Why is that interposed with a bunch of dog-faced prisoners?

I know it's been said multiple times in this thread, but Ro Go FTW. I think I knew a half-dozen (now) adults who could lay claim as the original artist if they could only find their 4th grade notebooks.....

Scorpion. Cool game but poorly titled.

I know, I was always confused as a kid. Scorpion is the name of the boat! Not the most obvious thing.

I'm surprised this thread hasn't turned into the pros and cons of Marche's artistic style, yet.

One of the greatest games of all time (imo) saddled with the most boring artwork imaginable. If you didn't know the show you would think the game was about a boring brunch where everyone sits on top of each other.

It's fun, not bad. There's an attractive woman in the drawing as well. It's not fine art but it's stupid fun and I like it.

At least the Party Animal translite is well drawn and fun. Let's circle back to how terrible 80's Williams were.

They are right there with all those 70s Gottliebs for sure.

I think Hardbody and Raven are great translights. They look great right next to each other in my collection. And yes, I know they're not for everyone. But, that is alright. They're perfect for me. Now, I will say I hate both the no translight of modern lcd screen pinball, so even the worst is better than none. And I always hated just a big head on a translight, Like demoman. Give me something cool to look at.
So stuff like CSI I think are boring. If I wanted to look at peoples heads I'd talk to real people and not play pinball. I also think Wheel of Fortune while it is a serviceable backglass, it truly is boring. And I think they could have made it more exciting. It just puts me to sleep.

It actually looks really great next to my breakshot... Sadly that machine is going to be broken for a long, long time. I love hte breakshot translite... But, one of the ladies has straight up butterface. I know its actually a hard expression he wanted, but I think softer lines would have worked better for the face. Still a great translite.
And really my space is all but tapped out. Raven and Hardbody play well and are fun games, but they're not great games.
I want a great playing pin for my next beater. An Elivra and the Party Monsters playes great and would look great next to my ladies. Or a Swords of Fury, that always looks great.
But, back to ugly translites...
This isn't any specific game. But, I find when people make the nude mods of them. I find them to not just be tacky. But, also really ugly. I like nudity as much as the next man, but I think that the mods don't look attractive and look worse than the clothing.
I mean do we really need the lady on the Creature Translight nude. Do we need Elvira nude. They're showing enough skin to begin with. To me just the right amount.

Street Fighter 2, love the game, but the translite was an atrocity.

I have to agree. They look like Chernobyl victims
