Wow, who is doing the Iron Man LCD project and how can I buy one? Pre-alpha or not, I bet that was sweet to play.

#702 3 years ago

We got down to shots playing Hercules!

Pinheads will drink and celebrate anything!

Plenty of fun in the smoking section too

Quoted from labnip:

Ok, I never really watched Buffy the vampire slayer, but this pin is insane awesome. Playfield is unbelievable.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer is one of the best examples of theme integration that I've ever seen, and the fact that it was designed and built by two enthusiasts (Nelly and Mocean) instead of pinball industry professionals is amazing. It is also incredibly beautiful!

Oh, and this other fan agrees.

The SLE side art is like embossed and highly glossy. Totally different than the flat artwork on the LE and Prem.

That may be the biggest difference

Eric posts his videos in the IM Owners thread. Check some of his most recent posts...

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/iron-man-owners-club?tu=epthegeek

He also did the colorization for the Iron Man ColorDMD.

Unfortunately, it will never be produced commercially, because it would be a licensing nightmare.

It is an AWESOME project, though.

#716 3 years ago

Incredible pins. Incredible eats. Great pics. Thanks for sharing and being the unofficial Expo surrogate!

Nice, I knew Eric was working on it at one point but I thought he scrapped it for the ColorDMD project. If he is working on it again, that is awesome!

These reasons are two of the top reasons I go to shows.

Although I love the smoking way more than drinking, but I'll do both, lol.

#726 3 years ago

I'd love to share a few pics, but am technically challenged on an Android phone.
Any help for a hungover idiot?

No one mentioned Coolers Hawk across the street or Buca...2 great resturants, when
Pizza wings and burgers need a change.

Got you covered next month, John!!

Awesome.

We are driving down, so I am able to bring some goodies for everyone as well. Gonna be a great time.

My wife and I have already marked down Expo for next year too, so we will definitely be there. Just waiting on the dates to come out to cement it.

Some of us enjoy the other thread. These would be deemed unsafe for that thread so I guess I'll post them here:

Thanks to whomever brought Joust. Was at the show yesterday and my son and I played it a couple times. He beat me again both times, just like a year ago.

#730 3 years ago

Those homebrew pins are incredible

This was a hidden Gem. Glad it was there. IMG_00006004 (resized).jpgIMG_00006001 (resized).jpg

Well, about to walk a mile out to rental car and make the drive back to airport. Turns out parking is crazy at hotel on sat nights.

I could prob use the exercise

Have to tell ya, all the industry folks are just the kindest and most welcoming group you could ever meet. Even had a fun chat with Rick at PPS

Wish the show was a few days longer, but I'd probably collapse from all the fun.

Stern tour was such a blast as well. If you haven't done it... You just have to try and sneak it in at some point.

Think I need to sleep for the next week to recover

More pix coming.

...and see y'all at the Houston Arcade Expo in 3 weeks.

were you at that restaurant during the grand salami? I bet that place exploded

#746 3 years ago

Just got home from chicago expo....a few observations. Great show, great people, so glad to have the opportunity. But, it needs more machines! Too many machines were pulled by 5pm on sat. I get people have schedules, machines get sold, etc. but it just needs more machines. Families, the future of the hobby, come on saturday! To spend $120 on admission for a family of four and find theres effectively only a handful of good pins is disappointing. And The good ones were clogged up with wait lines, leaving only marginally maintained ones open for play. No pinbot, no black knight, but four copies of a so-so game? And if you bring a pin, and thank you for doing so, but make sure it runs and has been cared for. Too many machines with bad coils, warped playfields, and other issues. Have some pride! I know machines are pricey and maintanence is continuous, i do have one myself, but please do what you can. Ill get off the soap box, just a thought or two. Thank you to all those who help make these possible. It truly is appreciated.
