    Zak McKracken two parts box model (in French)

    It was quite a long time ago, sadly some of those boxes have been packed into storage. I'll have to dig them up sometime.

    Zak McKracken two parts box model (in French)

    Superb work Guybrush! I’ve done a few these years ago so I understand the hard work that goes into this.

    George Lucas signature

    This is a great post. I'd be curious about this too. Watching a few GDC docs, apparently George wasn't a big gamer, he would rarely show up to the Lucasfilm studio where the developers worked. But on the rare occassion when he did, he would watch the product demos and then if he liked it he...

    Disney’s Use of Monkey Island

    That's exactly what they are doing - they are slowly taking bits and parts of the MI series and monetizing it in various ways (Pirates movies, increasing revenue for their Disney resorts via playing the theme songs for various Pirates rides, etc). Sadly I think we have lost the series to Disney...

    The Dig Novel Edition

    Ah yes, saw that one immediately after it appeared. First reaction to the box, 'Yeugh!' Second reaction to the price, 'Yeouch!'

    Non-Adventure Lucasfilm Games (Ballblazer and Rescue on Fractalus)

    Any love for these two early Lucasfilm releases? I remember seeing both these games played and displayed at a local shop growing up. I'm seeing the Atari 5200 versions and the costlier C64 clam shell versions online. Any info between the two? Dont we all wish we had access to a time machine...

    How well do you keep track of the items in your collection?

    I've started tracking my collection via spreadsheet and similarly do the same as Ahenobarbus; where I try to learn the history of an item - where I purchased it and when (with photos of the sale item), if the seller was the original owner, what kind of environment it was kept in, etc. I'm a bit...

    Big Box Protection

    Not sure anyone has brought this up on here - the search forums didn't yield much... Due to the high costs of importing plastic cases as well as the varied sizes of game boxes, I've started storing my collection into archival bags. Huge thanks to the team at Big Box PC Game Collectors on...

    Missing Monkey Island Items

    Hey! I like this. As for the cloth map, I had no idea that existed either until I read mention of it on this site. I've since posted this in the Big Box Facebook group - feedback was great, a lot of amazed collectors!

    These are hard to find, but I have seen them pop-up now and then on eBay.

    New Forum Software

    That's unfortunate what other reference based sites is everyone currently using. I've found Computer Game Museum (mocagh.org) and TheFloppyDisk.com

    Your latest LucasArts purchases

    I recently started collecting some of the Lucasfilm\Lucasarts classics I remember playing way back when. Alot of the inspiration came from this site as well as a few Facebook groups. I'd say the ones I'm most proud of are Loom (with the audio cassette) and Maniac Mansion, both of which are CIB...
