I'm a big P-ROC guy, and I'm also a fan of EMs (I am a strong believer that if you have 10 or more machines in your collection at least one should be an EM). The only reason I can see for doing an EM to SS conversion is strictly for the intellectual challenge of it. It is hard to see where you could do enough to the rules to justify throwing a thousand dollars worth of hardware into it. But, hey, if it rocks your boat.
In reality, there have plenty of EM games that were made SS, since most of the early SS games in the late 70s were pretty much games that could have been EMs and any time I play one of those I think, this should have been an EM. I understand that was part of the evolution of pinball, but playing one of those games with the electronic sounds and rule set that is basically an EM, just seems off of me.
Loved seeing all the old soda bottles, when I got a coke machine for my game room, it had to be one designed for bottles. Soda/Pop tastes best in glass.
And as far as all of these toys that were posted, it was a great trip down memory lane. I recently told a buddy of mine that I was going to do some vacuum forming for some parts for my latest custom game, and the next day he brought me this . . .
I keep thinking I should try it out just for kicks.
