Dudes, I am almost a hundred percent sure those are artwork/hand drawn.

Same.  There is just something about them.  They look like concept art.  I wonder if Chukker knows.

Hmm, I know I've seen that HUD somewhere before though! I recall it many years ago, maybe it was on the actual CQ CD in one of the menus with a screenshot...I always wondered how I could get those zorcher ammo counts on my screen like that.

I'm fairly certain they're not, its more likely that they look strange from being printed on cardboard with machines designed more for speed and mass production than printing accuracy. Look at a page printed from an inkjet printer with a magnifying glass, the lines won't be perfectly straight, also keep in mind that these images are very small (somewhere around an inch to maybe an inch and a half).

Not to mention the colors in the picture are exactly the same as in the pallet. I really doubt they would be able to replicate it so accurately.

Yeah, weren't the flemoids going to be yellow in the drawings, but they had to make them green just to fit into the palette?

Yeah, I think Chukker said they were originally going to be yellow, but had to change to green. And unless someone is an extremely good drawer, those are not hand-drawn. Some info on those shots would be nice though.

Those where concept art. It would make no sense to change it during production, and then place them in advertising for final product.

Hey guys, I just realized I have a complete cutout of the back panel of the cereal box down in my basement, does anyone have a scan of these yet?
Edit: Added  ;D
Edit 2: Argh sneeky HP software, it autocorrected them anyway, fixed.
