I have my Bride of Pinbot story to share.
In my 45 years of Pinball, I have a Gap in my time from Playing, and following the Industry.
Wouldnt you know it was from 1988-1993, it was a time where my life was focused on Career, Moving, and having my first
child, my daughter, Ashley.
I never played The Machine, Bride of Pinbot on location. In fact, I never knew it existed.
Pinball had taken a back seat.
So, unlike many others, I did not get any adolescent, Weird Science Time, playing the game and building the Machine.....the Wonderful artwork of a machine, The Bride of Pinbot!
I managed a couple games, at a crowded Christmas Party, but in not being able to hear, and the crazy layout, I had no interest.
Fast forward to a couple months ago, and I get an email from Jeff, Pinball Pimp, we all know, that he had one that was mechanically bullet proofed, but a players condition playfield with wear.
I try never to turn down a bargain, and drove down to pick this up.
If you know Jeff, he is a Master at restoring, and no visit lasts 15 minutes!
BOP came home, shortly into my retirement.
It took one evening, and only one, to become addicted! Holy Crap! I wanted to write up a new game review! BOP was stealing time from GB, and TWD!!! WTF!!! What a game, and soundtrack build!
My daughter, who is now 27, doesnt play Pinball much with me anymore. She has her New Marriage, Career, and is moving away next week to Nashville, but she did find time to play, and from all the games I have, it took only one game to declare I should keep this one for her.
Ill miss my little girl, and go to visit, but now we have a new game to bond us, and I hope for much more time to enjoy with her.
Thats my story....Awesome game, Great review to share, and I appreciate those who have allowed me to share and read.
But this is a contest, so Im ending with some pics!!
First, this was to be a gift to me...except, I dont have an I Phone! Love the case!
Heres what my Bride would look like with the years added to be in line with me!
