My daughter is having her birthday party in a couple of weeks, and she wants to get her cake with a picture of the Adventurers on it.

I've been looking for a good action shot of Johhny, Pippin, and the Professor that would go on her cake, but really no luck so far.  Googling images didn't really reveal anything really good.

Does anyone recall seeing anything that woudl be good?  Orient expedition theme would be best, but not mandatory. It shoudl be reasonably high resolution as it will be made into a 5 x 7 photo, and then that is used to make the cake picture.

Feel free to post a link to a good pic.  

Thanks for any help.

Are you looking for something in a graphic arts style or a photograph? Either way I'm not sure that I could help, but would be interested in seeing what you find.

Jeez Steve if you don't know, who would??

Graphic art, I think, with a nice background.

A good example would be the box pic for the Aero Nomad

Except that Johnny should be much bigger and centred and Pippin and the prof beside him.

The Adventurers retail display flag

Is the best I can find so far.


BTW, I actually have this flag hanging on the wall of our Lego Room  X-D
It's awesome.

That's a nice flag. I'd love to have one of those on my wall.

your going to have a hard time finding an image over the internet...  because most images are going to be set to a screen resolution of 72 dpi, not really suitable for printing (recomended 225 or higher).

that flag is nice, and i would suggest scanning that !!!

oh, brickster uses a nice image in this H&A pinned thread:
http://eurobricks.ho...?showtopic=2937

it seems suitable for your cake...  i wonder where it came from, and if you could get the hi-rez version ???

check out my about me thread.

also, check out The LEGO Western Expansion MOC Page at MOCpages.com !!!
and Brick Miner's Extras BrickLink.com store !!!

Gylman:  I've searched my collection of images and didn't find anything that would really work for you.

The image BrickMiner mentioned is just a little thumbnail.  I don't have a larger image of it.

I did however; put this one together from different images of the characters:

And this one is from the comic but it's not very large:

If I were you, I'd probably use box art from one of the OE sets.  Most of the images are very nice.

I appreciate the effort Brickster.

I'm going with the Flag picture.  I just photographed it off my wall.  

The ones you made feature the characters nicely, but the flag is just more "action packed".  

Here it is, resized for screen viewing and upload (it looks much nicer in the actual photo)

Looks good.  I like that shot of J Thunder.
