Was playing my WCS tonight ( which I've owned for years), and finally remembered to snap a pic of this signature on the translite and post here. Does anyone know who this is? Should I care ( bedsides the obvious paint missing in the middle of it)?

Just some history from this good old gals past.....I always play it before contemplating selling it , then talk myself out of it ( I'm a hoarder)......

That seems to be a common and enduring myth with many JPop games.

Find the Australian pinball magazine with Steve Ritchie's article. Lots of great info on how others always got to finish and clean up his work.

FYI -- that signature is on all wcs translites, it's not an original. Just like you will find Watson's on games he did.. I dont know if Kevin signed all his before production but wouldn't surprise me.. seems somewhat common with pin artists? Just recognized that as I used to own wcs.

I believe most artists were allowed to sign their work starting in the System 11 days.

Next time you are in an arcade start checking out the art work on redemption and other games...driving, shooting games etc...you will see many familiar names from the world of pinball art.
