I started my love with pinballs about age 14, when my dad decided he wanted to run an amusement company. I remember the first talking pinball that came through the shop "Embryon". It was amazing, the voice, the noises, the action, loved it all. Then i remember the first NIB that we bought "Jurassic Park". Shaker motor, dmd, a dinosaur that ate the ball, a trigger launcher! Over the years thousands of pins have come through the shop, even some of the greats (MM, MB, AFM, TZ, AF, etc, etc.) and i fell in love with most of them.

When we get our WOZ machines, if LOTR looks like it can be let go then, I might be interested. Or are you the guy that bought mine??? lol
