LucasArts/Logo Variations

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

This page represents the custom variants of the "golden man" or "golden guy" logo by LucasArts, used from 90's until 2005, and the new logo used since 2005.
These are the logo variations seen throughout the years by Lucasfilm Games, with more to be added overtime.

Full Throttle (1995): The logo is on a cloud background.

Star Wars: Shadows Of The Empire (1996), Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi (1996), Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) and Star Wars: Demolition (1999): The logo, recreated in 3D, turns past the screen and settles into place, with a lens flare shining behind the Golden Guy, dying down and remaining as a spinning orb of light.

Afterlife (1996): A multiple Star Wars: Rebel Assault II - The Hidden Empire variant logo plays each other on a black background, except the logo moves down after as a purple desert background appears behind it. A large, flaming fissure opens beneath the logo and the shield falls in. The Golden Guy attempts to escape by flailing his arms, but falls in. A beam of light comes out of the pit as the Golden Guy rises back out as a winged angel, and flies up.

Outlaws (1997): The logo appears out of a cloud of smoke.

The Curse Of Monkey Island (1997): The logo is seen drawn on a map.

Grim Fandango (1998): The Golden Guy fades to a skeleton version of himself, and the arc is also skeletonized. The word 'Presents' appears below.

Star Wars Rebellion (1998): The logo is lower and the arc is compressed above.

Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance (1999): Two space vessels pass close to the logo and make it flip.

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine (1999): A golden square with many moving gears moves onto the screen, each with a picture on them which shines a blue light and lines up to reveal an Indy version of Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. 'LUCAS' comes in one by one by one on the left, and 'Arts' appears on the bottom. On the Nintendo 64 version, the name disappears and the box turns over to reveal the Factor 5 logo.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D (1999): Two TIE Fighters chase the glider around the giant landscape which later pans over to the LEC logo. The TIE Fighter crashes the logo.

Star Wars: Force Commander (2000): The turret is chased by an armored tank through the rainy canyon. The action then pans over to the LEC logo which first appears with the light beaming through all letters.

Star Wars Episode 1: Jedi Power Battles (2000): The logo rises with a deep orchestral theme, then the man is shot with a laser and comes to life, drawing his sword and jumping into the screen.

Escape From Monkey Island (2000): The Golden Guy crossfades to a monkey holding a banana.

Star Wars Episode 1: Battle for Naboo (2001): Two droids chase the golden man flying on the personal gliders. They bump into the standing LEC logo, which later falls proceeding to the Factor5 logo. The animation is made using polygons rather than videostream.

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds (2001): The logo is viewed through the scope standing on a desert landscape. Then enemies pop up and destroy the scope. The logo reappears fullscreen.

Star Wars: Starfighter (2001): The glider passes by and makes the man lose contact with his arc. Then he appears on the pit of the flying glider.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron II (2001): A gathering of clones appear dancing on a pattern that resemble the figure of golden man viewed from the top.

Star Wars: Obi-Wan (2001): The golden man appears in solid yellow, and walks from the left of the screen. He stops and itches his head. He then uses his force power to bring toward him but has difficulty getting it through. When he uses his force powers again, the shield is pulled to the middle of the screen, knocking him over. The golden man then gets up and walks to the usual space of the shield, raises his arms, and a bright glow forms the logo.

Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter (2002): A paper sheet lands on the screen and the man takes it, makes the paper airplane and launches it. The real airplane returns and the man hides to save his life. Once off-screen, the airplane returns again as the paper sheet. The man takes it and turns it into the arc.

Star Wars: Racer Revenge (2002): Racing pods crash through the logo, then several repair droids appear carrying the parts.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2002): An army of golden men seen on the march, carrying their arcs on the shoulders. They zoom out to the normal logo.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (2002): The golden man is distracted by flying jet, and is kidnapped by a bounty hunter. His arc falls down. The bounty hunter takes the place and creates the arc above.

Gladius (2003): The arc turns into a sword. The golden man takes the sword and poses with it, until lightning hits him. Then he returns the sword, where it becomes an arc again.

RTX: Red Rock (2003): The logo starts with deserts of Mars, where the sand reveals the logo without the man. A robot appears inside and is shot. Then the golden man appears in its place.

Thrillville: Off the Rails (2007): There is a blue bumper cart with a guy in the seat, and a red bumper cart with a girl, and they move down the rails into each other. They do not crash, but make the LucasArts logo light up at the moment that they meet, and they continue moving.

The Golden Guy then uses Force Lighting (a move from the game) to draw out the Lucasarts name below, and then uses a force push to finalize the logo. Then he moves into his traditional stance.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (2009): The logo starts with golden man performing tricks disguised as Indiana Jones, escaping from the stone ball and chainsaws. Then he jumps into the screen with the hat and the bag, and is shot with several pickets, which form the arc.
