POWER XTREME... at the arcade! by ZEBES POWER XTREME... at the arcade! by ZEBES
I did this illustration as a massive homage to 80s cartoons here in Chile, and I chose to draw the Centurions. If you do not know the Centurions YOU SHOULD BURN IN HELL, but instead, just watch the intro here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIajdX… . You get cookies if you spot the references in the image.

This is a beautiful tribute to the Centurions. :iconclapplz: I loved this show as a kid and the toys for it were awesome.:love:

I love the details you packed into the Centurions toys and I especially love that you threw in some classic arcade games in the back. The guy playing Double Dragon reminds me of Bruno "Mad Dog" Sheppard from the old MASK cartoon.

Max had a moustache; would make more sense for them to be the Centurions in the picture than 3 random non associated characters, no?

watch the intro in the description to see what they looked like in the cartoons :)

So awesome to see some Centurion fan art.  I had all three of the action figure when I was little.  Seeing them in the toys made me miss Saturday morning cartoons and their cheesy dialog.
