Quoted from SuperPinball:
I wish one of these upstart companies would hire Sir Brian Eddy. He can easily walk a new company through the process.
Going with anyone other than jpop would be a logical start. He's only the most hated man currently in pinball. That may change in the future after JT gets his day in court but as of now his showing up at a pinball convention to promote a new game would have potential disasterious consequences.
