Sign me up a a charter member...
Mine was a wedding present from my bride.
I tried to buy it from Clay Harrel when it was being shopped at Flipper City.
There is a very nice one in the Ann Arbor Pinball Museum.

Sweet, this is the one in the Silverball Museum. I'm pretty sure the BG is a reproduction. 12347992_10208796352130267_6195274548552690118_n (resized).jpg

mine in action taken a few years ago, have since installed pinball rescue plastics and game is in the queue for a cab repaint

strange thing is you couldn't give me a vulcan and had to hunt for about 15 years finding one in australia.

#5 3 years ago

Can I join in your reindeer games?

I wish. Like many others, the one at Silverball Museum is the machine that stole my heart and hasn't returned in.

Quoted from SirScott:

Hey now, I don't think that counts if they're going for rarity. (3,575 made)

This guy wanted $500 for a Vulcan and I thought it was a steal based on Fire Queen but the ad stayed up forever. I wonder what the community value difference between these two is? I agree the two player version is cooler. Funny how it (Fire Queen) would have been the cheaper one back in the day, "made for operators with less money to spend".

#7 3 years ago

Hey sir Scott I have a Vulcan with the gladiator on the back glass. I thought the fire queen was the only one with the queen on it. Just curious.

Nope sorry this car is a 2 seater, you'll have to follow us in the minivan lol

Cool side by side comparisons of Fie Queen ad Vulcan.

I got a new back glass from Steve at BGRESTO. The original was nice but did have flaking around the score reel windows and a few other places.

out of interest how long did you have to wait? (been waiting since march for 1 and june for another).

Took me years to join the club, but glad I'm here. Nice flow with tge left alley. I had to pay up for mine and the deal had to take a Vulcan with her! Vulcan had a better coin door and playfield, so was worth it. Wish the glass was better, but I prefer screened glass. Not restored yet, but up and playing for the holidays.

I had my original FQ backglass framed and put the reproduction in my game.

I miss my Vulcan. But then, I miss all the games I've sold through the past few years.

I was shocked to see this come up for sale in Phoenix, just 2 hours from me. Couldn't send the Email fast enough.

I take it you bought it and gave it a good home.

#21 1 year ago

Joined the club a few months back. My first time fixing an EM! Got 'er back up and working. Really gives you a sense of pride you can't get from solid state, doesn't it?

Got my machine last year. Just finished restoring another machine so I've just started on it.

20181208_133534 (resized).jpg

Backglass is in great shape, same for the playfield. Needs a good cleaning though. Not sure if I'll clear coat it.

20190220_215901 (resized).jpg

It's going to need some work, that's for sure.

#23 5 months ago

That is really dirty! You might have noticed you have the wrong Pop bumper body / cap on one of the bumpers!

Welcome to the club. FQ is a great game.
And yes that passive bumper body/cap is wrong.
you should have two red ones, and they both fire when one is tripped.

#25 5 months ago

@stashyboy @bob_e Thanks guys! I'll definitely need to get that replaced. It's got some damaged plastics too, one piece is in two being held by glue. Getting new ones is a low priority though.
I was super excited finding this machine in a garage after receiving a tip. It looks really fun, can't wait to play it.

#26 5 months ago

I've had mine for a few years and have yet to play it. Gonna start. Putting the playfield back and it will be my next gottlieb 2 player to .

I don't know about jackets, but I think t-shirts would be pretty cool.
