    I will be there with a game or few. Is there going to be an auction?

    Added 15 months ago:

    Now that we are getting closer to the event I will be there but just for Friday. Not able to bring any games this year.

    You're probably going man the junk booth a little bit too. Although I guess its not something you 'have' to do.

    #9 1 year ago

    Oh yeah, junk booth! It has chairs. I like chairs.

    That floor is hard. I get sore feet after a while.

    Chairs are typically in short supply but if you show up with beer we'll let you sit in the booth and sell junk. BYOJ

    #15 1 year ago

    I'm planning on attending again this year with parts, some new playfield glass, taking orders for powder coating and much more....

    Also I'll be selling/listing in a few weeks; 3 Pinball machines and 7 arcade video games before this show and possibly be able (depending on room in the trailer) to deliver them for pickup at PATZ 2023...More details coming soon.

    Looking for nice examples of the following to pick up at the show:

    Surf ‘n Safari
    EBD (no hardtop playfield)

    I'm happy to announce that Leeann and I will be attending PATZ again this year.

    We'll have several of our new t-shirt designs, our latest MODs from Godzilla, RUSH, LZ, TS4, Godfather and possibly a few for Foo Fighters.

    We will also have a very limited supply of our older MODs and possibly a few games for sale (I will be posting pictures shortly).

    So if you are interested in any of our MODs, please be sure to PM us so we can have them created and set them aside for you, so you can pick them up from us at the show. We normally have plenty of show special pricing on our MODs, not to mention saving on shipping costs.

    Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone in about a month.

    #21 1 year ago

    I should be there on saturday friday and can bring any pre-ordered concert ticket magnet requests to save the $5 on shipping.

    pm me with any requests one week prior to PATZ.

    edit: friday is when I'll be at the zoo. I can leave any magnets for people on saturday with ULEK or Tilt Amusements if prior arrangements are made.

    I have standard size playfield glass, 40 per sheet. if you want any, let me know, at this time, i only plan to bring what would be pre-purchased. I had a bunch ask for it at louisville, and they never came and got it, and its not something that is fun to haul around if not needed

    #26 1 year ago

    I have a williams contact i could bring if a deal is in place. 1800 obo, nice condition, new troxel drop board

    1) Original Nintendo Super Brothers
    1) Original Konami Track and Field

    More details to come soon when I get back in from Texas.

    I will also have a few new sheets of standard playfield glass for $30, some new invisi-glass for $245 and 1 new sheets of wide body playfield glass for $40. The make me an offer treasure parts cabinet, some gameroom decor/translites, odds and ends parts, and whatever else I can dig up.

    We're getting close everyone! I know I'm excited. Looks like we will have a healthy showing from Stern again this year. Huge thanks to Tilt Amusements! Love that! But it also looks like we will have Godfather and some other goodies from KingPin Games! Shaping up to be a great year. We also have the Stern Pro Circuit event running all weekend long. It's going to be a great show!

    What's everyone bringing out to the show?!?!?! We will have our usual best in show awards as always.

    For anyone who purchased and/or plans on purchasing a Stern's Foo Fighters pinball machine... we will have several Reproduction Replacement Ramp Plastics made from PETG, which is much stronger and more flexible then the factory stock plastics that are continuously breaking. Because of the high demand of these replacement ramps - please send me a DM and/or an email to make sure that I have enough for anyone wanting to purchase them at the show (to save on shipping).

    P.S. We have a Foo Fighters on location and both the left and right ramps broke within less than 280 plays on it. Again, these are a MUST have for anyone who plans on owning this game (especially for operators who will have them on route).

    I have some wall-hanger pfs I could bring, if sold ahead of time. I'm going to be very limited on space in the car (brining one game for free play), so I won't have room to bring them all or put in the auction.

    Franklin:
    Paragon
    Centaur
    Flash Gordon
    Rolling Stones (Bally)

    Franklin+Jackson+Jackson+Hamilton:

    I also have a fully populated SBM, but not sure if I could get it to the show or not. Price is tbd.

    Looking forward to the show!
