Ghostbusters - Maggnamos by T-RexJones Ghostbusters - Maggnamos by T-RexJones
Here we go again, reaching far back into Ghostbusters obscurity. I'm sure only the most hardcore GB fan is likely to recognize this one -- it's the final boss from The Real Ghostbusters arcade game, released by Data East WAY back in the day.

I'm not sure this thing actually had a name, so I took the liberty of giving him one. Hope it suits.

It's kinda funny -- this is by far the most straightforward and probably the quickest of these Tobin's images I've done (next to D'orka), but I think the colors make it my favorite so far... maybe... ;)

Ever noticed how one of the bosses from the arcade game looked like the Class 10 from Ghosts R Us, except it was colored orange?

I should hope so! In my mind, if it ain't ugly, it ain't a monster!

Meh. I wasn't even sure if the arcade game should count. Was it created then ported to Japan or was a Japanese game sent over here and turned into a terrible RGB game with no character likeness? I've heard both, but I'm not sure. I never played it. Would have loved to though. Was it any good? I've heard mixed reviews on game play.

It would've been sick back in the day, but it's pretty fuckin' terrible otherwise. This is more of a nod to the hardcores out there ;)

Sweet. Not sure why I said that comment before. Guess I was having a bad day. I can't comment on the arcade game's terribleness since I never played it, and there's always room for some awesome artwork. ;-)

That's cool. The great thing about it is that you can take shitty character designs and make them rad/workable ;)

The pose, the color contrast, the design, the lava bubbles around him. Everything about this pic is badass :thumbsup:

Thanks! I was a little worried about how the lava effect was going to work out, but I think it came out okay!

Magma Cyclops? The colors of this one pops really well! I remember you had to fight two of these, made me think they were Class 6 Servitors like how Zuul and Vince Clortho were to Gozer. But then the game ended after they exploded.

Thanks mate!

Yeah, it was a pretty lackluster game from start to finish, but there are some pretty cool designs in there worth mining/appropriating I think.

Man, me and my friends, we prefer to play old-school games. We go from N64, back.

Man, you're just a young'un then! If I talk about my old-school games, I start talking NES and Atari days! :D But the 64 is easily one of the most fun machines you can play!

17 right now, 18 in April. Man, what I wouldn't give to have seen those consoles in their prime... Friend of ours from Israel had never played the original Super Mario Bros. on NES, so we went and fixed that. He couldn't get enough of it... And I've only been able to TOUCH an Atari 2600, let alone play one.

Fuck! I've played that but I was rather yound at the time, I even remember where I played it. Wonder if they still have it? My visit one day and see if I can barter it off of them.
