Quoted from o-din:

a friend is bringing in a Williams King Pin in a couple weeks so I get to check that one out.

Awesome game, you will want it for yourself and not let it leave your house once it is there.

It get's confusing sometimes. The DMD guys want Kingpin, and I get to play a Wms. King Pin, and another guy just wants a playfield for his 1973 Gtb. King Pin.

#5553 3 years ago
Quoted from Vic_Camp:

Check out the LL playfield and backglass.

That BG looks pretty good, as most WMS Lady Lucks that i have seen always seems to have flaking near the bottom.

Quoted from pauloz:

Skyrocket is my first EM.

Yours is in super nice shape.
One of my favorite BLY EM pins (that and Magic Circle).
Played it a lot at Arcade Expo 2.0 a few weeks ago.

The game was in a home "family room" for a long time before I bought it and I was lucky the backglass was nice.

Picked this up today:

That Big Brave looks real nice Mike.

I am shopping this North Star for a friends aunt I grew up with back in the 1960's. The game hasn't been played since the 1970's.

"North Star" is such a great game! It could be the best wedgehead, neck and neck with "King of Diamonds" for sure.

#5564 3 years ago

Wow, these last few EMs all look amazing! Would love to tinker, but limited space for the moment.

I got a Top Score last year and already posted that one, and here it is with the Volley I got a few later. It was HOU for the last 25 years, had all the paperwork and the schematic was still taped in the lightbox. A very clean unit.-

That's a real nice Volley.
How many plays on the game meter?

#5567 3 years ago

It had 29k when I got it.

#5568 3 years ago

volley is one of my favorite 3" flipper games hands down
yours has a very nice bg, most have issues

#5569 3 years ago

Thanks, Boiler. Coming from you that is a huge compliment The pic looks like the red is washed out, but it's not at all. It is in excellent shape. I was lucky to score this.

#5570 3 years ago

A few months ago a friend of mine called me and said he picked up a Buccaneer at an estate sale. He decided he didn't want to restore it because it was going to take to much time etc, etc... So he offered it to me for $300. I was like "ugh, a Buccaneer?" But I could not pass up a 70's wedgehead, because those are my favorite. As i inspected i noticed it has a few things going for it. Backglass has only a few spots but looks excellent. Playfield is pretty good and the plastics are like new. The coin door had some rust but was not dented. The cabinet is awful and will require a redo.
So, now Ive finished with getting this game up and running. I recycled the posts from other games that I've replaced them on. I painted them with glossy white to make them look new. They came out great. I also put a new rubber kit,new acorn nuts on the plastics and LED's throughout with color LED pop bumper (leaving 47 bulbs on the Special and all rollovers/inserts). I did add orange dot Gottlieb flipper coils.Other than that everything is what it came with.
Ive played Buccaneer many times in the past. I thought that the more I played this game the more it would become boring, but it just the opposite. The more I play, the more I like this game, even with no drop targets. The spinner is so fun to hit. This game is a keeper and Ill redo the cabinet come spring time.

Vic, how in the world do you ever work on those games if one of them has an issue? Just removing the glass looks like it would be an adventure

#5573 3 years ago

It's not as bad as the pictures make it look after using every inch of the basements 18 x 28 space to the extreme to fit in my 25 wedgeheads. In the corner near my Atlantis, if I have to get to Drop a Card or High Hand then all I have to do is move out my Sing Along and I can slide the glass off either game and pulling either game forward gets behind to service the heads. Check out the pictures from 2007 to get a better idea of my space condition in my basement gameroom.

I've been to Vic's and it is amazing how he has squeezed so many games into the basement he has. Dimensionally my basement is like 28 x 28 but when you include the stairs, furnace, half bath, closet, partition wall, etc. I have room to set up 10.

First machine I ever remember playing and the one that started me on this crazy path. Gottlieb Soccer doesn't get much love but it rocks! Love the back glass animation and the double spinners. Wish the Special could be switched to add-a-ball!

I must have missed you when you came to Vic's. I'm there quite often. Did you make a pingrimage, or were you in NJ for another reason?

*swoon*
If I could ever find room for one more machine it would be a Buccaneer (or a High Seas or a Ship Ahoy).

#5580 3 years ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

I must have missed you when you came to Vic's. I'm there quite often. Did you make a pingrimage, or were you in NJ for another reason?

I squeezed in a two hour visit in March of 2011. It was high school spring break for my boys. We were going to spend a few days in Brooklyn staying with my in-laws and then on down to DC for a few days. I was at a jobsite in WV and flew out of Pittsburgh while my wife and kids flew out of KC. We all flew into Newark except my flight got in over 4 hours earlier than theirs so I made a pingramage to Vic's until my family arrived.

It was the best use of wait time ever.

Sorry I missed you.

#5581 3 years ago

Wow....what a page!

Eye candy overdose

Someone show me a Spinout and a 4Square to round things out....

#5582 3 years ago

#5585 3 years ago

Sell Dodge City? That's on my keeper list. Played it as a kid before it was destroyed one evening at a laundry mat. I now have another and it's safe!

#5586 3 years ago

We play ours every day. Those loops around the kickout holes are great!

What I consider the best asymmetrical two inch flipper game.

Sky Jump being the best asymmetrical three inch flipper game.

What I consider the best asymmetrical two inch flipper game.
Sky Jump being the best asymmetrical three inch flipper game.

I agree with both, I had a great sky jump sold it due to space, FaC was the last game on my want list that I could not find in good shape.
I am really stoked to get it in the line up, the bad I am going to have to move a few out. I just have more than I can even store.

it has a pretty nice bg, most I have seen always have issues

totally agree..i love mine so much had her imported from the states to australia.

#5592 3 years ago

Beautiful 4Square....what a great piece of glass..the playfield looks great when on special...all those lit numbers in the midfield

Spinout looks best in the dark..... the way the backlighting picks out just a few of the designs

#5593 3 years ago

Agree on the two inch flipper game.

I'll go with Atlantis on the three inch games.

#5594 3 years ago
Quoted from EMsInKC:

on second thought I would give atlantis the edge over sky jump only by a little on game play a lot on the art package

#5595 3 years ago

I have a Sky Jump and a Atlantis. I can usually rack up a huge score on my Atlantis, Sky Jump.....not so much. I find Sky Jump to be very challenging. However, Atlantis wins because of artwork. In my opinion.

#5596 3 years ago
Quoted from bicyclenut:

I find Sky Jump to be very challenging.

Average scores for the Sky Jump I have are 29,000 to 50,000. Set to 5 ball. Getting the 1-7 lit, and winning the 'Replay' is roughly 2 or 3 times in 15 plays.

#5597 3 years ago
Quoted from Darcy:

Average scores for the Sky Jump I have are 29,000 to 50,000. Set to 5 ball. Getting the 1-7 lit, 2 or 3 times in 15 plays.

Im about the same as you. My Sky Jump plays soo good. Ive gone through it and did a full restore. Meaning, Ive replace most all the coil sleeve, if not they have been cleaned. We have a dry erase board in the game room to keep track of all the EM games. My 18 year old son currently has the highest score of 72,000ish. It kills me that I cant beat his score. Im usually like you 29,000 to 50,000ish. Set on 5 ball. Now Atlantis....watch out!

#5598 3 years ago

I have yet to roll my Atlantis. And to tell the truth I don't know if it has a 100k light. It will be a surprise!

#5599 3 years ago
Quoted from presqueisle:

Nope, no 100K light. And you'll have a hard time rolling yours (as long as there's no tissue in the tilt bob).
