Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein inbound if anyone is looking. This one looks particularly nice.

Play them side by side in the dark. I get the chills when I play Dracula in the dark

Quoted from brobra:

Thought I’d share an outstanding original ‘65 game. Looks like it came off the show room floor….
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

6,000 plays in 60 years - practically new.

#3005 6 months ago

It’s truly remarkable. 58 years 106 plays per year, or played twice a week.

It’s such a bonus to a get a nice clean game.
IMG_0356 (resized).jpegIMG_0356 (resized).jpeg
This one was well maintained, and dialed in. Servos and Frankenstein throw mechanics work perfectly.

The playfield does show wear at heavy traffic scoops, but there’s nice Mylar installed that’s saved most of it.
The cabinet is in fine shape sans the moving dings under the coin door.

Gave her a light cleaning, a few rubbers, and nice light wax.
I’m starting to drift away from LEDs on all games and left this on incandescent.

Mate that game is awesome. That and cross town were the first pinball machines that I played as a 5 year old at my local swimming venue.

I had a beautiful SweetHearts that I regret selling a few years ago. If I believe the story from the guy I bought it off it was a HUO game and it looked it. And a great game to play. Last of the gobble hole games! I always wanted a game as old as me. This was it.

Great to see you around again Chad. Love your pinball shenanigans

Thanks Mate! That’s a great sweethearts. I actually had a gorgeous restored one last summer, and came into a rougher one last fall. I ended up trading it for a game or two to parlay things up.

I love the gobble hole games. I have a square head with is the sequel to egghead which has prominent gobble holes.

Nice original 61 egghead with only 84,000 plays. Gorgeous condition.

Super tight access down basement stairs, but did get down NIB.

Got the Virgin game to boot. Nothing like helping spread pinball bliss and happiness.

Thank you!!!!!

You wanted the best, you got the best!

Smashes has some great remixes on there - as well as the two new tracks. Rock Hard is so underrated.

I had the Hofner, but didn't know they made the Ric for it too.

Ah yeah, they made the gretsch too, a split strum bass, even a gutted out actual stratocaster made for rockband(the strum is garbage on that though, still working on replacing it), RB4 had a jaguar and the red and white strats(red pictured in my avatar), madcatz made a telecaster 3/4 size replica too!

#3023 5 months ago

Another tight move, 28” doorway, and only 28” at the 90 degree turn in the landing. Glad I knew this going in and extracted the head when I broke it down at the sellers place.

Ultimately, it was success, and there’s going to be new generation of fans to keep our hobby strong.

I helped you move around 5 games and unsuccessfully get GTF going….you and Jackson ultimately solved it.

There’s proof of life on you working

Bad cats turned out nice. Wiring harness was not secured so 6 switch errors were caused by pulled wire. Cleaned up nicely, and added some LEDs. Playfield is gorgeous. Main cab is silkscreened, but this was a Mix match game where it was given a decaled head.

Busy weekend…. Helped with some work dialing in Drop-a-Card….such a cool and fun Gottlieb Em. I believe it was the last small flipper game. It’s so nice to have a deep Gottlieb Em parts collection.

This nice Space Odyssey may be available if it’s your flavor.

Also help a fellow collector get is Kiss LE, and Bally Kiss prepped for shipping. KISS LE had 11 lifetime plays (guy never played it).

Now off the hitting the projects I’ve been neglecting for a while.

Picked up and incredible toy from a local pinball and radio collector. He gave me a 1941 zenith model long distance console tube radio. It works on low band and high band fm, am, and short wave. I can receive signals from very far away. I’ve set a low band fm transmitter connected to Bluetooth to play tunes. I’m over joyed with it.

I also had an opportunity to see his gorgeous Seeburg 1954 Select-o-matic 2000. It’s a stunning piece.

Other notables, finally started getting hot shots and have it playing after repinning the J6 connector for the switch matrix.

And just traded for a ghost busters pro.
It was a very busy week!

Highly recommend him.
