Yeah, that's what I get for browsing newly listed pins on eBay.
That one's kind of neat. Years ago there was another one that was done in a coffin and it was just extremely well done. Super professional looking. I think my pics of it are long gone though.
Love how he states his 40 year old son is afraid of it. I'm hoping that's a typo
Then again, it is pretty creepy.
I kind of compare it to the catacombs in Paris, it was cool for the first little bit, but after awhile I just wanted to be out of there. It's cool, but I wouldn't want it in my house.
No coffin going in my house even if it has a pinball machine inside it.
I like the creativity, but too creepy for me.
Not sure what the right business would be a good fit for this pin w/ custom cabinet.
I agree that it probably is a big hit during Halloween.
I am going to ask Hibler about this one.
If I brought this home...lol
The pin belongs to Denis Dodel here in St. Louis. The thing is awesome. I repaired the electronics and suggested a few tweeks to the playfield mounting. Dennis has done a great job completing it since I last saw it. The large "translite" is really, really cool. Playing the game inside the coffin has a much different feel from the normal cabinet; not bad, just different. It's spooky...

I'm going to buy it, put it in the basement and then threaten to unleash dracula from his coffin every time my children disobey me. They're already afraid of BSD as it is.
Haha! My kids have never been afraid of our BSD, but I do have one nephew that won't go near it!
Actually, the pin that scares my kids the most is Punchy the Clown. They loved it at first, but one night while playing another game, the light in the room started to flicker (damned compact fluorescent bulbs!) just as Punchy started talking during attract mode. It freaked them out a little and they haven't played it since.
I just saw this and like the idea. It is different. A pinhead-morticians wet dream for sure. Raddroxx is right though about the auction going south. Too bad. I would of liked to see what its market value is.
