I have gotten 2 years of pent up pinball show fever out of my system. It's been awesome! I took down my want ad for wall hangers as I have gotten enough to deck out my entire arcade wall including what I was specifically looking for. Picked up wall hangers for:
DE The Simpsons!
Meteor (broke in my hands but paid for it).
Got cool playfields for:
12 arcade marquees
Picked up cool lit sideblades for Medieval Madness for my boss.
Very tempted by pinovators multi sub input and some other very nice products brought in by vendors, so many nice shooter rods!
Sold all of my extra parts and broken boards covering 100% of this.
Tilt sells the stickers for pingulps at the show for 5$ each so snagged a few.
Have not sold my Black Knight and El Dorado yet but have interest.
If they move may go home with a Paragon or Revenge from Mars.
There has been a line on my Rick And Morty the entire show and it's been rock solid. I only had to pull the glass once for a stuck ball and that was with an aftermarket toy.
I think there have been more parts and projects this show than there were 2 years ago
There may be fewer nice games this year than previously, but I blame us and low inventory at dealers for that. Bring an A game to the show if you can!
Have gotten to play some games for the first time I have been hanging to try:
Radical, T2, Quicksilver, Revenge from Mars, Hot Wheels, Nice Paragons, High Speed 2.
Just because it was once common does not mean there are pinheads that have not played it.
Lots of very friendly people.
10/10 will be back next year and will try to bring another A list game.
To the folks who put the show on... thank you!
