Question: I want to see two games in the Denver area: Big Bang Bar and Big Lebowski (the BIGS).

Is there anywhere I can see these? I don't need to play them, but I would like to see an expert play them to learn how desirable they would be to me.


#2600 2 years ago

I tried reaching out once, but heard nothing back. Not too surprised I guess.

I suppose realistically that if/when either or both is available then the dealers would have them to play. Big IF - but Chicago Game did reproduce 2 famous machines so who knows.

If there were good Virtual Pinball X versions I could at least check out the features better. BBB has a virtual version but is far from complete.

#2602 2 years ago

Yeah I like the mild raunchiness of BBB, pretty bold, like 1947 Humpty Dumpty with scantily clad women!

TBL seems interesting, I imagine exposing the old car on the upper table and bashing it proves remarkably rewarding ( - :

#2604 2 years ago

As far as my next (modern) PB goes, I like JJPWOZ somewhat and can't wait to see JJPPotC. Like to see TNA, seems to be creating a buzz.

Quoted from pinmister:

I am looking for a small claw machine if anyone has any leads?

Something like the Chicago Crane Steam Shovel? I saw one in the Vegas PB Museum. Can't post a picture in this forum.

I have fond memories of this game at Elitch Gardens in Denver as a kid and have thought about building one but I think I would quickly tire of it.

Quoted from resipsa:

Anywhere local to get electronic components? I need a FQP13N10L transistor. Microcenter doesn't list it on their website and I don't know of anywhere else to look.

I usually use OCTOPART.COM https://octopart.com/search?q=FQP13N10L

Looks like lots of good vendors have it for cheap

Quoted from swampshroom:

I have the pleasure of being Grand Junction colorado and have looked all over the web trying to find a place to play pinball. Anyone know of a good place to play?

You can play my Blue Chip at Apex on Main St ( - : Guess someone wanted to buy it today, weird.

No pinballs except for one Stern Spider-Man at GJScores. I'm trying to change that.

4 in New Castle if you want to drive to the mountains.

RE: Remakes vs. Original pins. The new Williams reproductions are 10X the machines as the originals, IMHO. Better at everything. But then I know there are reasons to own the original just like there are reasons to own Bell Labs dial phones. Collectors items.

Quoted from Bendit:

Oh man. I cannot start doing this. It will be the end of me.

Really? Care to elaborate on this? 10 times eh?

10 just popped into my head, pick some number. 2, 5, 3.1415926. Or -1 if you own the original.

There are multiple LEDs per PCB alleviating most need to ever change the LEDS. That approaches 10 in my mind. Never mess with it EVER, try that with bulbs.

As far as "games I own" I think Chicago Gaming only did an OK job on MMr. I like the game because it makes me smile.

Ridiculous is as ridiculous does, LLJ is that you? Horned helmet & all

Quoted from InfiniteLives:

Words mean something damnit!

THEY DO NOT! ( - :

And on the subject of words mattering "You can't just say..." is wrong because I DID just say. Maybe you meant "shouldn't".

Always semantics with me

I'll be at Texas Pinball Festival with a "booth", more like a table to introduce my new product.

Just taking a car so won't be able to take anything back.

Do you have a table layout diagram yet? With power distribution? Thanks For the show that is

#3041 1 year ago

Not directly related to FS/FT but thought I'd let other Coloradoans know that my MMr is now on Main St downtown in Grand Junction. It is at The Lonely Toy Store aka Apex Piercing, 655 Main across from the Avalon.

Anyone have a Stern Star Wars Pro for sale? Curious what you can get a used one for.

#3075 1 year ago
Quoted from fosaisu:

There’s one up on Craigslist ATM for $4700:
denver.craigslist.org link

Curious what these sold for new, say from GEXCO. Thanks

#3077 1 year ago
Quoted from fosaisu:

Not positive but I want to say “street price” was $5400?

Probably about right. If you don't live in Denver it works out best to only pay the state tax and have it delivered (from GEXCO) which adds (non-negotiable, I might add) $300 which is still cheaper than picking it up and paying local Denver tax.

I read this is a good choice for a route. Gets played a lot even though it gets bashed on Pinside for having an empty center playfield.

#3081 1 year ago

DRAT! That Stern Star Wars just sold. Like to get another like it

Posted my AC/DC Luci if anyone has any interest. Come by and play it.

This is a beautiful machine. I don't care for the theme but you can't help but gawk at it. Mesmerizing...

Quoted from InfiniteLives:

There is a TNA at Pinball Jones Campus West in Fort Collins, The Flipside in Loveland, Lyons Classic Pinball in Lyons and 1up Colfax in Denver

I was at the Campus West location about a month ago and it appears to have closed up. FYI

Reading the last few posts seems to answer my question: Is PB Jones Campus West still open?

Sounds like the answer is YES. Please add more if this is wrong.
