Of all the art Jpop has stolen, I wouldn't say this stuff is the best.

Also not a fan. Find perplexing the widely expressed opinion that Magic Girl is one of the most beautiful games ever made (if not the most beautiful).

The cabinet and playfield were different artists I think.

Magic Girl's playfield is pretty solid (for a non-working game). You gotta remember what other games looked like at the time. Even now it mostly holds its own, but it's almost all Zombie Yeti v Zombie Yeti at the top of the list.

The translite is beautiful. Especially for the time it was revealed.

I just got me a piece of backboard to help me keep perspective of how much else of the game I got screwed out of. The board and tshirt should make descent wall art.

It does not.
I grabbed the Zidware LED design guide booklet just for the LOLZ.
It's about 20 pages of simplistic CAD drawings.

If anyone wants a scan of it, let me know.

I’d be interested in checking it out.

I’m not trying to be ignorant , but I’ve only been around 2 plus years .That being said ,what’s the real deal with JPOP ?IMO his earlier pins were different from the norm in a real good way .I really wanted to see him in the mix with current pins because of his unique style .It blows my mind what that Roger did .It’s a mix of gigantic testicles mixed with a overdosing of stupidity but still .I guess what I’m asking is why he wasn’t hired by an established company prior ? Whatever anyone thinks , he gathers more attention than any other designer by a country mile which is what’s so confusing about this story .

Python had some choice words about him.

The fact he wasn't hired says quite a bit to me. Even if you're a bit eccentric you could be a hired gun if you can actually design a game.

When John worked at Bally/Williams, he had a lot of help. He had some good ideas but others had to get his ideas to work. John need others to keep him on-track and within budget. I know this first hand with working with him on a project.

The late Barry Ousler said the exact same thing about John P.
