Unfortunately, I'm not a fan - the original artwork has much more style and fits the theme.

Green astronaut with purple hair, giant robot, 50's retro rocket?

The card art looks much better so maybe I will be able to look past the amateurish cover. I'm sure this is already off to the printer - hard to believe this was the best Stronghold could do. Guess I'll just have to PS something with the original/new art and make a new box cover (keep the robot, add the old base, lose the Shuttle and new base...)

They said they were going for a retro 40's - 50's Sci-Fi theme. Unfortunately, I don't think they really pulled it off. Alien Frontiers IMO does the same thing, but 10 times better.

Are there any images of the new art available?
I've checked the game's gallery but found no new card art. Although the new edition's cover is already used as a representative image meeple
