Miner Willy - Ich bin ein Berliner?
« on: 03:33, 17 July 17 »
So after playing a good stint of Manic Miner with @Craigsbar earlier, we discovered Miner Willy's German ancestry.

As you can see, to the left, is Miner Willy in his vacation outfit, dressed in green. To the right, is the prototype of the Ampelmannchen, still seen around in parts of former West Berlin.

Outstanding, isn't it?  :laugh:

Hahaha, I wonder how many more video game characters are hiding in public places?

One of the security who works in one of the venues I photograph at regularly looks exactly like the bouncers in Target Renegade!!
Moustache and all!
