Anyone remember Gpara' page on Blinx? They had some awesome high quality screenshots of B1Q64. Too bad they took it down.

Well, you've probably seen some of the exclusive content. But there was some images that never really circulated for some reason :P

What, really? I've never heard of a 90s punk Blinx picture. Could you find it, or just describe it a bit? :)

Never heard of it, unfortunately.  Now would've been the perfect time for me to get my hands on some images of that very nature, though, given something I'm working on.

I've gotten into the habit of saving any BLiNX-related images that seem valuable in any way, though.

Gpara is a Japanese gaming news site. They've seem to taken down pages for games in outdated consoles. They had an article on World B1Q64 with information on each round and some really pretty pictures. They seems to be exclusive as well as you can't find them anywhere else. Here's an example I saved on an old wiki site I used to work on: sites.google.com/site/blinxthe…
You'll be familiar with the only good picture of Catherine, it's also by Gpara: vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/b…

I have the first four rounds but unfortunately don't have the rest. I do happen to have the translation of the page so I guess it isn't all bad. But I can't help but be frustrated since I can't find all 10. I'll post the translation sometime somewhere.

It makes me a little annoyed that there aren't many pictures of both games. And the really cool ones are sparse and hard to find, probably in page 50 of Google search.

During my fruitless search, I came back to the Time Factory Proboards. There's probably some good stuff we've forgotten in there that I plan to find.

Also, I was reminded again of the 'Bromide' picture of Catherine when you exchange the tokens all at once... and I've never actually seen it. Could you provide a photo for me so I could see? Sorry for the trouble, I'm curious.

Oh, I recognize that watermark.  I always wondered what site it was that got all those nice images.  Thankfully, some of the images are still floating around, like a really nice picture of Catherine on a white background (yes, I typed that before reading the next sentence that said exactly that - kind of hard to remember every last thing I want to say if I don't type as it comes to mind while I'm reading).

If all you want is to see what it looks like, you can see it here at 19:40.  If you ever, for some unimaginable reason, wanted a nice photo of Carlos, you can also see that here at 24:50.  You get it the same way (exchange every emblem at once, but with Carlos).  If you want a decent quality screenshot of either photo, I ought to be able to get one later today (which would basically be tomorrow for you, timezones and the like).  Y'know, why is it that Jimmy gives you a photo of Catherine, again?  Especially if she actually is his sister.  Anyways, I'd think you would have gotten that, since I know you used to spend a bunch of time playing BLiNX 2 to try to get every team member.  I would have expected "every team member" to come after "everything in the theatre."

Damn, it's been a while since I've thought back to the TFF, though.  Kind of assumed it died, not that it was ever terribly active anyways.  All I remember seeing there, though, was the one picture of Catherine we already have.

Okay, fourteen hours later and I got to take good screenshots: Catherine and Carlos.  Definitely hanging onto those, so thanks for asking, as weird as that might sound.

Thanks for the photos. :)

If you receive a picture of Carlos, you'd think that in exchanging the tokens you'd receive a photo of Jimmy. But instead he gives a pretty nice photo Catherine posing in his shop. It probably implies some sort of relationship between them, though I can't imagine the discussion they would have had for Jimmy to be permitted to exchange tokens for a photo. You'd think Catherine was a model or something and time sweepers hoard her merchandise.

Imagine if NecoJi was the first time sweeper to exchange all the tokens and he gets handed this photo.

I've never really thought about Catherine's eyes, but it's weird how they're more feline and realistic than every other time sweeper. Her pupils are practically slits while every other time sweeper has slightly bigger pupils. She also has a blue iris. For some reason Blinx and everyone else lacks this feature and have much simpler eyes.

I should really draw her eyes properly but I'm not sure how to integrate that into my style.

The picture of Carlos is pretty underwhelming. I'm sure that's the same picture in the game manual. In contrast to Jimmy giving a photo of Catherine as a little creepy, Carlos giving a picture of himself is pretty egotistic. Tom Toms would probably throw the photo back at his face or tear it up.

...y'know, frankly, I could kind of see the model thing being the case.  It's kind of difficult to say much given how she's the only confirmed female cat (Pelon's too uncertain), so her figure may or may not be terribly "notable," but I always found her outfit a bit unique for someone that's just a shopkeeper.  Posing for a photo like that also makes me curious.  It's not something I plan to think too deeply about, though, since we don't have enough to go off of.  Might not even bother writing that idea down.  That would have some amusing implications for NecoJi being envied a bit by others, too, although the relationship between him and Catherine would just make me question the photo thing more.  The NecoJi thing aside, I'm thinking that Catherine might just be a pretty well-known individual among the sweepers, so a photo of her wouldn't necessarily be a photo of some random person.

I always thought her eyes looked a tad odd in that photo, though.  Not really in a bad way, but I think it's the combination of blue sclera and totally opaque spherical eyes (a feline's irises are pretty much flat - they're just behind a round transparent "shell").  She seems like such an anatomical anomaly among the cats, and with how we don't have any other females, we don't actually know how unique to her they are and how much is just differences between the sexes.

You're right about the photo of Carlos, though.  I like to think that Carlos gives out the photo as his "grand prize" just to screw with the Tom Toms, but I also imagine that the Tom Tom protagonist (TTP as opposed to the TSP, time sweeper protagonist?  I want a shorter way of saying that) was either too naïve or stubborn to refuse the thing, so he just walked off appearing content and really weirded Carlos out.
