Quoted from o-din:

Sing Along sure is a very pretty machine. It is next on my list.

Isn't that artwork great? I've always wanted to snag one too......... I do have a Kings and Queens though so I'm happy.

Quoted from hoov:

Isn't that artwork great?

Yes, and a great player too. The best of both worlds.

#1353 5 years ago

here are 2 of mine just setup for the turkeyfest all EM tournament this weekend. 1969 Bally Cosmos and 1971 Bally Vampire.

Just means you have exquisite tastes.......

#1357 5 years ago

Well look what the cat drug in today!

My Gottlieb Sure Shot and Sonic Prospector, fresh off the NAVL truck.

I was too busy wrenching on Sure Shot so that is why I'm posting late.

They both need my usual work before I can play them but they will look and play great when I'm done.

You have an alibi.

Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Sonic Prospector

That ^^ should be an easy playfield cleanup being they CC`d from the factory,what will be played first the Prospector or the Sure Shot.
Either way congrats on the delivery.

#1361 5 years ago

Congrats Ken! Flip away!

Send your cat here to teach my 4 to do that.

Quoted from IntoPinball:

Thanks guys! I'm very excited.

Funny thing is I bought these 2 with plug & play in mind but of course I found plenty wrong with them and will post 2 separate threads on the Winter rehabilitation for the machines which I'm already working on.

Ken

#1364 5 years ago

That Sure Shot looks real nice.How many plays on the game meter?Can you post some more close up detailed pictures of the SS?

#1365 5 years ago

I second that motion.

#1366 5 years ago

Check out my youtube videos of my EM collection.


#1367 5 years ago

Thanks for the videos Vic. This year's videos in 1080p?

#1368 5 years ago

Ah, the sound of chimes. Nice videos, Vic!

#1369 5 years ago

Wonder what your 3 favorite pins are in your collection Vic?

#1370 5 years ago

So hard to pick 3 favorites......this month it's North Star,Sing Along and Top Card.Last month it was King of Diamonds,Flip a Card and Big Hit.

#1371 5 years ago

Here's a pic of my Sing Along rear end.She's a beauty.

#1373 5 years ago

Vic, I thought I had an EM addiction problem, thanks for making me feel better. Super collection and nice work keeping all them bulbs and switches working.

#1374 5 years ago

My new favorite EM. Sonic's Mars Trek. Picked it up today with only 10,000 original plays HUO. Fast, great artwork and that great Sonic play field.

Looks great Firepower! Congrats!

If I were to pick up a 2nd Sonic machine it would be Mars Trek.

Ken

#1376 5 years ago

Wow , this Mars Trek sounds modern with his third flipper and colored bumpers .
Cool

#1377 5 years ago

Quoted from Vic_Camp:

Fantastic machine.

#1379 5 years ago

volley gets passed by due to the art package.
it is a great wedgehead. not a special fest. once you get a free game you have to complete the drops again to light it again. Unlike games 2001 once you get the special lit you can bang away free games
mine is orginial and nice but not that nice

#1380 5 years ago

I've been looking to snag a Volley myself.........

#1381 5 years ago

I miss my volley. Replaced it with Mars Trek. No room, can't keep them all. Flip a Card is still apart in my garage since returning from the York show.

#1382 5 years ago

Don't have as much room as I would like so I have to cherry pick my EMs. Can't have 'em all, darnit.

Just moved out Central Park, replacing it with an Atlantis.

Rocket Ship plays great but backglass is a mess and cabinet has been re-painted, darnit.

K.C. Jones plays great. What a fun woodrail.

Honorable mention to my only two other EMs: Midway Gangbusters and Williams Upper Deck pitch 'n' bat.

#1383 5 years ago

Very nice. Love the Rocket Ship.

#1384 5 years ago
Quoted from OTTOgd:

Like the pin under the pin.

#1385 5 years ago

Yeah..Rocket Ship is one of the better playing woodrials.

Here below is an older slide show of my collection i made a while back.

That's weird i just played and view the slideshow link a minute ago.

Diggin' the woodrails. Rocket Ship is a diamond in the rough. Shay has the backglass in stock.

Yeah, thanks, I know Shay has the glass but it's $295 US and shipping will cost $75+. Tis the season but, unfortunately, my wife wouldn't be as thrilled as I would be to receive a backglass for Xmas. Have to wait until the new year, after those pesky bills are all paid before the selfish splurge.

I didn't know you had a time machine. We missed the unboxing.

#1393 5 years ago

That's a nice Big Daddy standing so proud and in a perfect spot for the serious EM player to perform the skills needed to beat the machine. Looks like a player can rest their favorite drink on the ledge of the short wall which is rare and there's plenty of space left and right of the game for people to view the silverball at play.

Williams made some reverse wedgeheads that can compete against some of Gottlieb Wedgeheads for sure. I am glad i have a Williams Skill Pool. Can you post any more pic's of the Big Daddy?

That is a nice machine!

#1395 5 years ago

Thank's guys! I posted some more pics elsewhere, but I forgot where. I just finished my yard work and the turkey's about ready to come out of the oven, so I have to run! But if I get a little time later, I will post some more.

#1396 5 years ago

That's Raphael Lankar's collection in Paris. The Paris Pinball Museum. It is insanely cool. He has a team on site including professional artists that do his restoration work.

I used to produce a calendar and had a few of his games featured.

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving! My 91 year old mother came by today for dinner and played a little Big Daddy. She said it was her first game, but does remember dropping some change in a machine a long time ago.

These metal flipper bats provide a lot of power and some snappy action. If you hit the kickout holes full force, the ball will jump and smack the glass. It is a difficult game with torturous outlanes, but very rewarding if you can keep the ball in play.
