    Rush or Motley Crue Post #182 in topic

    Posted 137 days ago by Chambo – in All Pinball ‐ Last reply 21 days ago

    Owning pinball is “chick repellent”. Hence, Rush + Pinball = perfect combo. Geddy Lee, Eric Lifeson, Neil Peart. You’ve heard these songs, even by accident. Not in Australia! Rush is as popular as a redheaded stepchild down here Of course, we’d have Stern making Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Easybeats and Hoodoo Guru pinball machines, which may sell as well outside Australia as Hankin’s Dennis Lillee’s Howzat machine did in the 1980s.

    Out of interest .. What game would you want to bring from Aussie to the States? 99.9% of pin traffic goes the other way. rd FJ Holden or maybe a Howzat to finish off a bizarro collection of obscure OS pinballs.

    I'm going to guess it will be a Howzat Vault Edition. You don't have to tell me I'm right. We'll keep it a secret for now. Howzat Shane Warne Edition. When you're not looking, it takes off its clothes and parties with your wife. And pops out the back for a couple of bungers. rd

    Rarest game you own? Post #401 in topic

    Posted over 5 years ago by Toads – in All Pinball ‐ Last reply 14 months ago

    How do they play? I've heard Empire is a pretty weak player. Do the standard bodies play different from the widebodies? The wide bodies do seem to play slower than the first two. Howzat and Shark are nice pins to play for their time. Emp is very much like space invaders layout and a lot of people don't like it. It's my partners favourite machine as she used to own a spacies. F j Holden and howzat play the c'mon Aussie c'mon tune at the end of game, pretty nostalgic for an Aussie pin.

    The correct spinner art is a flat white with a red star on it. (Check out the Hankin Howzat!) The paint was all gone on mine - I put the GTB mylar decals on them. Helps with the '80's cocaine disco vibe of the game. :-)

    Wide body machines Post #24 in topic

    Posted over 10 years ago by mykquillion – in All Pinball ‐ Last reply 54 days ago

    Yea, I've never seen that Empire in real life, but they may want to knock that number down to 349 in existence at maximum now. Good call. I'm sure it's way less than that sadly. Other random games by Hankin include Orbit 1 (which looks a lot like Stern Orbitor 1 only less cool) and Howzat! which is a wide body cricket themed game, so take it off the list of themes we wished existed. They also made a game called shark which is a wide body. [att=64573,161424]
