Agreed. I'd hate the part it out, but with no head it's looking more and more likely.

Quoted from jrpinball:

Damn, that's a tough one! Still looking for a Bally "Campus Queen" head myself.

Looking for a complete head for a Neptune. BG is not needed

The head of your "Neptune" rotted away in a shed in Fort Edward, NY
many years ago. I saw it! I hope there's another loose one around that finds it's way to you.

#104 24 days ago

Me too...

#105 24 days ago

neptune is a great game, we could build one from scratch... biggest thing we need is a AAB ball count unit

Yeah who had it? Even if rotten the parts are worthwhile. I’ve picked up toasted backboxes for the parts

Heck yes! I pick up every parts machine I can get, you never know when it will come in handy

This was a very long time ago. I once visited the legendary upstate NY operator Guido DelSignore. He had pinball tonnage. Literally a mountain of backbox inserts stacked in a corner of his basement! In a damp side room with a dirt floor was a "Neptune" backbox which was completely falling apart and rotting away.
Fast forward to the present day, the "Neptune" body that pintoys owns came from Mr. DelSignore when his "collection" was liquidated after his passing.
It went through a few people before ending up with pintoys, and I in fact had a chance at it, but passed. Although it's likely that Mr. DelSignore owned several copies of "Neptune" (or maybe not), the fact that this particular one which came from him headless, leads me to believe that it's likely the body which belonged to the head I saw rotting on that dirt floor. It's also possible that this very game is the very first "Neptune" machine I ever saw and played on location in an arcade at Lake George, NY back in the late '70s. Mr. DelSignore ran all the location games in Lake George, and probably all of northern NY state.
I believe I have a film photograph of that game somewhere. If I find it, I'll scan it and post it here.

Of course it may have been this Neptune game you played

Oh that’s really cool! I have talked to some old timers around here and people still talk about him. Did someone else pick up his torch? Some of the people I’ve talked to said to contact this mythical Lake George operator with pinball tonnage. Very funny. It’s only about 20 minutes from my house!

That could very well be!

Yeah, I was going to say that's right up in your neck of the woods.
Sadly, the arcades in Lake George once teeming with EM pins, soon became totally devoid of any pinball machines at all when the video game craze hit. I don't know what they're like today as I haven't been there in a long time.
Guido was one of a kind in a golden age.

They had a ton of 90’s pins. Someone posted back in the “What did you bring home” thread when they bought 12 games for only like 10k

They had Adams, Simpson’s, Elvis, TOM, basically every game you’d dream of but hadn’t been serviced since out of the box.

The owner just bought a Ghostbusters and WOZ and Deadpool, but he refuses to even wipe down the playfields cuz “his tech doesn’t like pinball” so it’s basically more of them same. There are 3 arcades in Lake George and all are disappointing. There is still the classic giant shooting gallery in Playland arcade which I think is from the 60’s.

PM sent, she (he) may live again

Quoted from DennisDodel:

I need a head from either a Rack-A-Ball, Bowling Queen or Mibs.

Bump

#118 20 days ago

This is kind of a long-shot, Dennis, but the head on my restored Atlantis is really from an old Rack-a-Ball (I drilled four new holes to fit the different bolt spacing, but obviously that's not visible from the outside. I was going to repair it (it needs to be structurally fixed a a bit -- I can show you pics if you want) and then repaint it this summer.

If I can get a wedgehead head that is the right size for Atlantis in good shape, I'd be willing to consider a trade since I'm going to be repainting it anyway. Just a thought. PM me if interested in discussing.

I would think he needs the guts too... But Mark, if all you need is head shell... I has one

I have set of just the score reels.
