    McQuarrie concept art swipe on Entex Defender mini arcade box

    I bought a vintage toy lot earlier today, and in it was the Entex Defender mini arcade game. I noticed the artwork on the front of the box uses a swipe from the Ralph McQuarrie concept art of an AT-AT preparing to step on Luke Skywalker and his Snowspeeder. The image is horizontally flipped, but it's definitely the identical image of Luke looking over his shoulder:

    Here's the Entex Defender photo:

    Not the first time video game boxes have ripped off artwork or photos from other sources. Konami's NES Metal Gear box was an artistic depiction of a photo still of Michael Beihn from the first Terminator film, and Konami's NES Contra game box artistically depicted photos of Arnold Schwarzenegger from Predator and Sylvester Stallone from Rambo.
