Quoted from movingpictures:
one of the three ugly guys from the comic book. storytellers i think. forget the name.
they are also on the playfield in front of the drops.
i have a SPECIAL EDITION tftc with tommy speaker grills.
for some reason it seems to fit ....
I think both of them are the Old Witch from the comic book. The other one is called Vault Keeper, but he wears a green cloak, and the speakers both have a red cloak. All 3 are in front of the drops as you say, and in the top left of the translite too.
