Speaking of Crash and Spyro...



A student of mine gave this to me a few weeks ago. 
It's a gift card from GameStop from 2007 featuring both Crash and Spyro.


That's pretty cool to see. There's been other promotions with the characters from the past including one with Crash and McDonalds. When I find it I'll post it up.

If I remember correctly, the design of Spyro on this card is from Legends. However, the Crash is from Twinsanity or something else, but not from Titans. It's funny, GameStop had made more correct choice.

Thanks for clarifying. They look like later versions of both characters.

Hi Charles! I really don't know why Crash fans hate Radical's redesign. They were trying to attempt to revive and redesign characters to a modern era in which I respect and applaud to Radical.

Hi there Pat. Characters evolve over time and Crash is no exception. There's some interesting things going on with the new Crash but there's also some basic design principles that were compromised. Maybe that's what fans of the old Crash are reacting to. Anyway, life goes on. There's room for more than one. I'm drawing him again lately and I may try my hand at Radical's Crash for fun.

That'll be nice! Also here's another design of Crash:

This was the design for Crash for his upcoming game back in 2010, but Activision laid off the team. Even though Crash has had a game in 4 years, us Crash fans are making a petition to bring him back. Here's the link:
