For sale - A2 Posters: Elite, Zarch, Ravenskull, Codename Droid, Crazee Rider, Palace of Magic, Repton

Post by Arcadian »

I've finally got round to producing another short run of the "Impact" series of posters, which I've been promising to do for several years now!

They are A2 in size and based on hi-res 1:1 scans I made of the original posters over ten years ago. They have been 'reframed' to remove the white text block that was originally at the bottom (so the artwork spans the whole poster, which I think looks a lot better).

All1.jpg

They are printed on 250gsm satin paper, making them thicker and glossier than the originals hence they look and feel far superior. And of course, as they were only printed three days ago they are all in perfect, immaculate condition as you would expect.

Full list of available posters:
  • Elite (portrait)
  • Repton: Around the World (portrait)
  • Zarch (landscape) Last Few Available!
  • Ravenskull (landscape)
  • Codename: Droid (landscape)
  • Crazee Rider (landscape)
  • Palace of Magic (landscape)
Price is £10 per poster or £50 for all 7 posters (that's still £1 cheaper than a single Palace of Magic poster sold for on eBay yesterday ... whilst the Ravenskull one went for £89! :shock: ).

Postage is £5.00 per order (UK), £10.00 (Europe) or £15.00 (US/Australia/Rest of World). Posters will be shipped rolled in a poster tube.

If you are ordering other posters from myself (e.g. the Ultimate posters or the BBC Micro poster) you can have them all shipped together to save any additional shipping costs.

Payment by Paypal (Friends and Family payments please, or cover Paypal's fees of 3.4% + 20p per transaction).

If you're attending January's ABug in Camberley I can bring them along with me (in which case you'd obviously deduct the shipping fee from your Paypal payment).

To order, please place a reservation in this thread and then PM me for payment info.

£2.50 from every poster sale (or £12.50 from an order for a full set) made via this forum will be put towards StarDot's Software Preservation fund, which is currently managed by CMcDougall.

(The fund is apparently down to just a tenner at the time of writing according to Col :( ). Update 2-December: The preservation pot has now been increased by £140 thanks to the poster 'commissions' - so thanks to everyone that's ordered! =D>

Code: Select all

Orders to fulfil

- Xavier Tardy (paid) 7 posters | To collect at ABug January
- danielj (paid) 1 poster | DM to hand-deliver
- MattyJ (paid) 2 posters | To collect at ABug January

An Elite one for me, please Dave! Off to make the payment right now. (We did briefly talk about an A3 version of in another thread, but that A2 one looks too amazing to pass up!)

Maybe you could pop the other A3 Elite posters in the same tube when they're ready, to save a bit of postage? Just a thought.

Thanks everyone for the orders so far, that should be around £90 in the coffers for the Preservation fund to-date.

Just waiting on some poster tubes to arrive, then I'll get the orders that are to be posted packed up over the weekend so they can be sent out early next week.

Note I'm a bit behind on replies to emails and pms at the moment but will have caught up by tomorrow!

Anyone more for any more? I'll probably advertise them on the Acorn Facebook group this evening then list the remainder on ebay over the weekend...

Hi James, yes there are still plenty left - however I'm just waiting on Zarch to be reprinted, as there was a printing error on the first batch which I, erm, didn't notice when taking the photos! :oops: (see the discoloured pink blocks at the bottom of the Zarch photo).

Anyway the reprints are due to be delivered today and though I'm away until tomorrow, I should be able to get the backlog of orders sent out by the end of the week together with the ones you want.

Apols to everybody else that's still waiting, I can't believe I missed the error!!

I can finally start packaging the ones to be posted now ... may be able to get them in the post tomorrow, failing that it'll be Friday for definite...

Hi, everything's packed and ready to go except I'm missing postal addresses for the above people (PayPal doesn't automatically provide the buyer's address when sending gift payments). Can you pm me your addresses asap? Ta!

Received today (I presume - didn't open the tube). All my wall space is filled with shelves with disks on them, so perhaps they won't get displayed yet :D

Collected mine from the delivery office today. I won't be seeing until Christmas day though as it's a gift to me from the kids so I'm practicing my 'surprised' facial expression for when I open it!

Hi - completely new to the stardot forum, hopefully I'll get this right! Could I please place an order for the full £50 set - I'll now see if I can work out how to PM you on this thing so as to arrange payment etc.

Update 8.52am: Drat - I don't appear to be able to use the PM facilities yet? ("We are sorry, but you are not authorised to use this feature. You may have just registered here and may need to participate more in discussions to be able to use this feature.") - Arcadian could you possibly let me know how best to contact you to arrange payment when you've got a moment please? Would be grateful! regards K
