Quoted from LookItsOps:

The other Kabuki is located in Minnesota. The owner has it up for sale. $14k. o.o

A bargain!

Quoted from rmarket:

The Pinball museum in Pittsburg had a Thunderball there.

Yep, saw the Rat Race ad. I think that's the first time I'd ever seen one for sale!

IPDB claims 10 prototypes made of Thunderball and Rat Race. So there's 1 each...(I'm sure it's possible others have been mentioned on the forum previously)

That is the real one. The other one was made up and not as complete.

Talking about Prototypes:
One F14 Tomcat Proto, Jolly Park Proto no.4 and a Peyper Odin Proto are safe and to be played at For Amusement Only in Seligenstadt Germany

What about Rat Race by williams? Along with Joust, those funky sideways tilting playfield "novelty" games. Only 10 Rat Race prototypes were ever made and I believe 400 some Jousts. Anyone aware of a Rat Race that is publicly playable? I'm reading both are fun.

There are reportedly 4 examples of Rat Race in the U.S. (per Pinside member collection records) with no known public places to go play one, unfortunately.

Dunno if maybe one of the pin museums has one and it's just escaped being noted?

2- Joust's at the Museum of Pinball in Banning, both working great.

One of each at the Ohio show this weekend, both up and running.

I just picked up a working Spectra IV.I can't find anything on production numbers but it seems to be one of only a few in working condition.

#263 5 months ago

Does the Kabuki table have custom dots or just Tommy's dots? On Ipdb it looks like it has some short sound effects and some custom music, but wondering how complete of a game it is or just a piece of art.

The original real one has some custom dots. No idea on the other one.

A friend of mine owns a joust and he is up about 2 hrs north of Toronto.

I had a retailer hit me up on Klov a few years back inquiring about my Gottlieb Spirit - if I was looking to unload. He asked if I had a Krull or knew the whereabouts of one. He said it was for a 'famous musician client'.

This has to be that same 'client'.

So has anyone played a pin that has a huge cock ejaculating onto a bunch of chicks spread eagle? I have. Can’t remember the name but gene cunningham had it in his personal collection before shit hit the fan. I recall him saying it was a joke that one Pinball company made for the ceo of the other.

Big Dick...Didn't realize it was a joke for ceo. From my understanding i thought about 12 were produced. I held the back glass couple years ago. Bummed I didn't buy it.

Mine needs boardwork but is restored with a nice pf. They are rare for sure.

I was wondering what happend to the Gas Attack games....
Shameless text copy from the ipdb. https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=5111

"There were two of these made for "Grossology", a participatory exhibit that tours the United States, Canada, and Europe teaching children about bodily functions. It has custom dot matrix work and custom audio appropriate for its theme. One machine on tour in Denver, Colorado was set for 2-ball free play."

I tried to get the roms files for this game, but no luck.
People would or could not co-operate to get them.
I think they are lost forever....

That would be cool to have in your line up. Same could be said for pretty much every game in this thread.

#272 1 day ago

Grossology is an exhibit that tours, and in 2016 the machines were still part of it: https://www.sfsciencecenter.org/grossology (at least based on the web site photo, but that appears to be a presser stock photo)
It was def around in 2015 as per this image https://twitter.com/SeattleMonorail/status/620264612710121472

Right now the exhibit is at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History https://www.fwmuseum.org/exhibit/grossology/

I found a local news report on it and at least from their footage, the games are gone. They have seemingly been replaced with two upright arcade cabinets, which you can see at the end.

So.... did they destroy the games? Are they just out for service? I sent an email to the production company to check.

Bless you, doing the lords work!

I specifically remember playing Pinball Circus at my local mall arcade. As well as a couple of my friends remember it as well. So I don't think it's a false memory.That was limeridge mall in Hamilton Ontario. So unless it was the same one that is in Vegas. There was another prototype that made its rounds in Canadian arcades.

Supposedly only 2 were made. One is in a private collection. And always has been. The other is in the pinball hall of fame.

I heard back from the production company (Advanced Animations) and they said Grossology exhibit has a smaller and a larger touring configurations, and that only the larger setup contains the Gas Attack pinball machines, which are confirmed to still exist.

If we could just get a rom dump.....
Now that would be great!
Love to play it in PinMame.

Mine are not setup, but would love to know what happened to all the Dinosaur Eggs and Alvin G USA footballs. No one on here seems to own one. AG soccer is also pretty rare with 18 owners listed. There were 500 of those made and yet punchy the clown with 1/5 the production run has 16 owners on here.

Most were probably scrapped since they were so big.

I've seen at least one soccer for sale and one dinosaur eggs--I think they may have had an accompanying pinside marketplace ad. They weren't cheap.

The one in Vegas was on test in Chicago for longer than any other pin. Then went into storage until 2005 Expo. That one never made it into Canada.

One supposedly went to Germany and disappeared, and one is owned by Neil Nicastro.

I was offered a dinosaur eggs on let go about a year ago. It was non working and he wanted $800 for it. It was in Lexington, KY. I passed. It wasn’t actually for sale I had just seen it in the corner of another picture and mentioned it being rare.

Well I just gutted my dinosaur eggs for the transformer. Pretty sure I will have to scrap it because the cost of replacing the parts is going to be over 50 percent of the machine, if I can even find them.

Find someone else who wants a Dinosaur Eggs, scrapping such a rare game is honestly unthinkable.
