Hi, Years ago Joe Kaminkow hosted a talk/raffle at Expo, this was probably 1998. During the raffle I won a number of items including a pencil sketch of art for X-Files. The drawing looks to be for the sides of the backbox. Now we all know there is no art on the sides of backbox because there are no sides on the showcase backbox. I had lost track of this and it turned up the other day and I decided I wanted to find out who drew it and why. I sent a note to Morgon Weistling who did the art for the game and he replied he didn't draw it. If anyone knows something about this please let me know.. thanks..

Kinda surprised nobody's chimed in yet... it seems someone's always got inside info on the games.

Especially for side art that never was... "oh yea, there's not side for art".

I wonder if anyone has converted a Showcase head to a standard design. If done right, that would be sweet - especially with that art.

Is that what it's called? I never liked that look; IMO those heads make the games look toy-like.

That includes one of my favorite Sega games... Starship Troopers.

I really thought about trying it, that ugly head was one of the reasons I sold my X-Files.

I have a Xfiles. It's a party favorite but will be listed soon for sale. I gave it plenty of love. It's a HUO pin with mods, all LED, toys, subway lights, cab LED, changed over to green plastics star post and lanes, LED star post, new Stern CPU?Sound board, and more and more.

So yeah, I am a fan but need to make room for some new pins so xfiles will be going to a new home very soon.

I remember seeing one at Expo a few years ago... but it was broken. Never got to play one.
Love the flukeman... one of my favorite episodes.

Interesting find, would really have been nice with a "real" classic backbox with sideart

X-files is a fantastic machine. Adding LEDs, bass shakers, and speaker upgrades transform the game into something really special. It's a player's pin with difficult and unforgiving shots and it possesses "blood", a legendary wizard mode. Yes, I'm a fan.
