Merry Christmas from Miss Santa (really, Wonder Woman, but don’t tell anybody), Santa Gilius, Haggar Claus, Santa Bison, and Kram-Poison (idea by @Myruh_Ret2 on Twitter last year) and I, PrimeOp. May it, or any other holiday you celebrate this time of year, be a good one!

All of those sprites have been added to the main image generator (which I used to make that screenshot). Yes, even the older sprites you’ve seen before, because I kept forgetting to add them.

Shake a hand, shake a hand, because it’s that time of year again! I can’t afford to give out toys to all of my friends, so I make an update based on my favorite toys (mostly from the 80s), including toys based on preexisting licenses. This year, G.I.JOE and Masters of the Universe made some strong comebacks, even if some were ridiculously hard to find on store shelves. That’s enough from me, go open your presents!

G.I.JOE: Clutch (v.1 toy, v.1 comic, v.2 tan recolor)
Street Fighter: Chun-Li, Ken and M.Bison (all G.I.JOE figure v.1, made from parts of preexisting Joe and Cobra bodies with new heads)
Masters of the Universe: Zodac (last figure needed for original line-up of figures), Hordak (highly-requested)
Thundercats: Tygra (finishing the original crew of adult Thundercats who weren’t ghosts, sorry Jaga)

All new sprites added to the main image generator!


Whatever it is that you’re celebrating this time of year, I hope it’s a great time for you!

BTW: this WON’T be the last site update for the year… stay tuned…

Rob “Dire51” Strangman, video game book author, creator of the OPFCG and Splatterhouse: West Mansion, Ghoul Realm, all-around good guy, and one of my favorite people in the gaming community, needs our help.

GoFundMe: Rob Strangman – ongoing medical needs

All is not perfect, however, and things are not the same as before. The tests revealed that things are more dire for Dire51 than we expected. His liver is seriously damaged and is not functioning well. His bloodloss has been halted, but his hemoglobin counts are not recovering despite several iron infusions. There has been some mention of possible bone marrow problems. He has kidney damage, and the high ammonia levels in his blood have caused some mild trouble with short term memory.

Rob’s current medical bills are right around $8000 so far, and mounting. Rob has further appointments with the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville for additional testing and hopefully to be approved for placement on the transplant list. Funds donated will be used for medical expenses, prescriptions, and transportation to appointments. We are down to one, very well used vehicle that already needs about $1000 of work for shocks and new engine mounts. The right front wheel has also started a grinding noise and we’re worried it may be the bearings. If there is enough, we will repair the car as well.

If you don’t want to, or can’t afford to donate, please consider sharing this fundraiser. Or, buy a copy of his book “Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman”. The book is available on Amazon, but if you buy your copy on Lulu, Rob will get a larger portion of the proceeds.

Lulu link: Memoirs of a Virtual Caveman

Both Rob and I thank you for anything you can do, and we sincerely appreciate your kindness and friendship, regardless.

I know this year’s been really tough on a lot of us and the load we’re carrying feels heavier than usual. But if you can afford to help, please consider contributing to help Rob get through this. If you don’t have the money to spare, share a link to the GoFundMe campaign so it can reach someone who can give. The fact that we need to have each others’ backs is more glaring than ever this year, and this is one of those situations where we can help. Thanks for reading and please do what you can to help Rob and his family.

Custom Sprites:
Karnov: the RoboCop Karnov
RCR/Kunio-Kun NES: Karnov (classic)

These sprites were added to the image generators along with Clown (sprited him a while ago, somehow forgot to add him to the generators) and 4 Fighter’s History Dynamite/Karnov’s Revenge stages: Marstrius, Ray, Ryoko and Zazzie.

LordBBH has the Karnovember Fighter’s History Dynamite Tournament 11/21/2020 video up in case you missed it last weekend. I got there kinda late (and dropped a $5 into the prize pot), but there was a lot of wild stuff to be seen. Watching the tourney also reminded me to get more of the game’s stages into the generator. Congrats to everyone involved for putting together a solid tourney!


(edit: sale prices changed)
‘Tis the season to put on sales, so this is a reminder that the print sale in the site’s shop is still going on!
8×10 (and similar size prints) are $4 each, buy 2 and get one free!
17×11 (and similar size prints) $8!
Buy some as a gift for loved ones, total strangers, enemies, or even yourself. I’m not here to judge!

Even though I teased Comic Book Sprite Showcase earlier this year, the original name was the Superhero Sprite Showcase, and that’ll be the title in this short test video featuring Wolverine!

An improved version of the orange and brown Wolverine sprite in his Konami arcade game fighting stance pose has been added to his sprite gallery and the GFX Image Generators, along with the variations you saw in the video. Also, the stylish “Marvel 80 Years” Marvel Legends box was added to the “Marvel Legends” screenstyle in the generators.


It’ll be a while before the next episode, but I’ve got plans for more Superhero (and Comic Book) Showcases (and eventually Showcades) to be added to the ScrollBoss YouTube channel if people are interested, so let me know if you’d like to see more!

Finally putting out some pixel print things I’ve been scheming to make for a looong time. First up, the easy part. First up, as teased off and on for over a year, a print of the winner’s podium from Street Fighter II, completely sprited from scratch:

That sprite is now available in the shop! But maybe some of you would rather see someone else in those podium spots. That’s the other thing I’m announcing: Custom prints (a.k.a. SelectPlayer):


For a bit more money than a print, you can commission me to create a customized print! Choose a background and any sprites I’ve made from scratch that you see in the custom sprite galleries (and a few that aren’t in the galleries) for your print. Here’s a quick example:

The basics info is up on the new page for the SelectPlayer prints. Yeah, this is what the “Player Select” in the old X-Men print meant, and that’s how long I’ve been trying to get this together. More background options and sprites made for the prints will be added as time goes on, so stay tuned!

One more thing: since the price of shipping prints from my print supplier has gone up, I’ve temporarily adjusted prices and added deals to offset that a bit for you. 8×10 (and similar size) prints are now $5 each, buy 2 and get one free. Also, buy one 17×11 (and similar size prints) and get one regular 8×10 print free.


Another update will hit the site before September ends. Frequent site visitors who use the Image Generators and look at the SelectPlayer backgrounds may notice a background that they haven’t seen before. You’ll see that background again in the next update, along with some sprite related to it. You’ve got a few days to guess!
