American pinball.

I've learned some great things about this business. Not sure what else has been said on other threads yet, but I'm extremely excited. Not yanking any chain either.

#626 5 years ago

Great stuff buddy. Cannot believe that vendor room. So cool

#627 5 years ago

Feel like I'm there!

#628 5 years ago

As above - huge thanks for all the pics.

Would love to get to expo one day, but I'm not sure if there will be a year as huge as this. I live in hope.

:neener:Real winner of expo 2016. The pizza suppliers of Chicago

#630 5 years ago

P.s thanks for all the updates, much appreciated everyone covering expo for those of us that could not be there in person.

#631 5 years ago

Great stuff. Wake up 'nip!

#632 5 years ago

One thread to rule them all!!!

Thanks Labnip. Just caught up on expo in one sitting.

#633 5 years ago

Expo has been so much fun! Sad that I have to leave this am!

What? Then you post a picture of a playfield with a direct steal from Addams Family. JPop has to be involved. He steals from himself mostly, but this is bad.

It could be me, but the mood at the show is insanely positive.
Those that like aliens, have a reason to be excited. I'm hoping it's playable today.
No issues on price.
Batman is a Stunning looking game, but I think of it as a filler. The new Spider-Man home looks sweet, the lines are busy, and there is always more coming.
Dialed in, other than critiques on price, name, and cellphone is a hit, and as pinheads, there seems to be no Care about the cellphone interface, except I'm the forum.
Keep up about pricing though...that is our side as the customer.
Houdini shows hope.
It is beautiful.
New screens, door mods, and most importantly, expo is US!!!!!

We, pinheads, are doing great!

As a former vendor, now back on the other side, everyone who has that badge and job, thank you! An exceptional show, with thanks to all.

The hobby is alive, and well, and kicking ass!

Manufacturers and vendors are listening...they hear us...
I was a bit shocked at the fact they do read and talk about us on pinside, more than I realized.

Other than price bitching, which I understand
from both sides, Pinball is alive and well, and bring celebrated at the show.

I would hope to share the positive vibes here
more, because it's more than the libations being consumed, I think.

Who what where am I....

Time to get up at the crack of 11:40am Saturday

#637 5 years ago

"Business & operations" side is looking great.
"This game" is a starting point, think it's going through changes still. Think they just wanted to have something to show.

#639 5 years ago

What were your impressions of the Batman SLE when you saw it flip? Must not be near complete though if they didn't let it flip with the general public? Thank you for all the pictures..how much for the nekid picture CD collection LOL

#640 5 years ago

We're going next year for sure. Any tips on where to stay.... places to eat? How far is this from downtown Chicago?
