TAMIYA – 1980s Buggy Box Art

First and foremost I set up Sci-Fi-O-Rama as a design and illustration inspiration blog, and though it’s bursting at the seams with Sci-Fi and geek related articles this really is just a flavouring.  What I’m getting at is; whilst this Tamiya post might be one of the less Sci-Fi tainted (there’s no glowing spacecraft here) it does, however, contain plenty of top-notch retro Japanese graphic art spun back fro my favourite decade, the 1980’s.

An obscure Aliens painting (I’m pretty sure non canon) used as packaging design for Aliens kids Toys! Yeap, this is part of the “Aliens Action Fleet” seems pretty bizarre that an 18 certificate film full of gore, violence and (ahem!) harsh language can become toys, but its all true – check out this link here: http://flickr.com/photos/kielbryant/849198329/
