Quoted from way2wyrd:

Heres another that i did. Playfield cleared and touchedup. Cabinet not so much
--Jeff

Jeff, that's awesome!!!! Jubilee is the first EM I ever opened up. It was also the game that started me and my best friend in the pinball hobby. Read my profile story for more.

#403 6 years ago

Uno! I have one waiting for a restore. Never played it. Is it fun to play or just fun to look at? I think it looks way cool, relatively rare 2 player AAB.

I saw a Nip It in person the other day. Neat machine! Sadly I did not get to play.

If you get in the groove, it can be flowing. If you shoot the gate on the left, it feeds the kicker for 1000 pts, kicker kicks the ball up and towards the gator grabber where you can grab it for another 1000 pts. If you get lucky, you can shoot the gate on the left again as the ball grabbed by the gator grabber feeds the right flipper... repeat for for another 2000 pts.

I think it is really fun to play. Ball plays fairly fast and keeping it up in the top area is a task in and of itself

ok i'll try a few of one I have been 'dialing in' and others here are the forum have been guiding me on and schooling me some!! thanks guys!!

such a fun game - I have it set on 5 ball, all con (hardest) post positions and spin n spot and it is a real blast!

hey, I see my '3' light on the ships wheel has a 'lazy' socket!!

#411 6 years ago

Today I switched my Solar City to Replay from Add A Ball. Waxed it up, then played the hell out of it. The Replay feature does change the way the game can be played. I had the AAB feature set that way since 1982. More balls per play, higher scores. I could usually score 2 extra balls per game, when hitting the pre-set scores.

#412 6 years ago

Darcy - sorry for the stupid question ... how do you switch Solar City from Replay to AAB?? was it an option on multiplayer gottliebs in the mid to late '70s??

regards, Ron

#413 6 years ago

Hello Ron,
The Solar City (a 2 player, with the playfield like El Dorado) has the option of replay or add a ball. There is a switch/plug like the 3/5 ball adjustment. Do other Gottliebs have this feature? I would say yes. Which pins, I would not have a clue. None of the single player Gottliebs that I have can be switched. Hopefully someone can chime in on this one. This feature is was most likely for the later 70's pins. IPDB list Target Alpha as the first convertible model. A search of other models may come up with more games with this option. - Darcy

Bumping this thread to see some more juicy pictures of EM Machines aka "Pinball Porn"

#415 6 years ago

I got my first EM a few days ago. Here it is 71 Williams Doodle Bug. Need work and cant wait to get it up and fully running!

Maybe this is thread hijacking, but I have these two em's for sale. Space Odyssey and Spanish Eyes, cabs and back glasses are rough, they light up, that's all. $200 each. Far northwest Chicago burbs

#417 6 years ago

Odyssey is the two player version. Yours is 'Space Mission'.

#418 6 years ago

i would have bought one except I just bought a EM plus I have to solid states that I cant get rid of.

#419 6 years ago

so I have 5 pins and no room.

That's the third time I got it wrong!

I'd take them both right now, today if you were close by ((

#422 6 years ago

I would have taken the Space Mission in a heart beat and bought a repro backglass. Too far away.

#423 6 years ago

You gotta love this about EM's...

#424 6 years ago

I'm assuming that counter is for......Doodle Bug?

#425 6 years ago

Nope my doodle bug reads 63,000+ if the counter still works or has never turned over

#426 6 years ago

Hey does anyone have a 1962 Gottlieb Tropic Isle? I had one about 40 years ago and liked it a lot. Get those monkeys up the tree!

#427 6 years ago

Counter is from my 64 Bally Sky Divers, still plays awesome too!

#428 6 years ago

I remember opening up my Donkey Kong cab when I first got it and the counter said 150,000+ plays. If even half to 3/4 of those were legit quarter in the slot games, I would say that it paid for itself a few times over back in the day

Does anyone else collect Playmatic EM pins? Here are a few of mine that you don't see very often.

Those are gorgeous games Mike.

#432 6 years ago

They look like gorgeous backboxes to me. Can we see the rest if the machines?

#434 6 years ago

I think you guys have convinced me. I WILL own an EM soon I have been going through all of the EM's that are available on Future Pinball and have been having a lot of fun. There are some truly beautiful games out there.

So......anybody have a Beat the Clock they want to sell?

#435 6 years ago

Beat the Clock is cool. Early multi-ball.

My first Pin (Father's day gift) $100 garage sale find. It is a little dirty but plays w/ just a few glitches.

Here is my brand new run Quick Draw playfield before it headed to Kruzman. This will be combined with a completely maniacally restored cabinet and Shay backglass by year's end.

FrankG, I'm guessing you were trying to upload some pics. Pinside likes it when you put some text in your post as well. (which I have now done, so might as well throw a few pics into the mix) I'm not quite finished, need a few more parts, but 90% there, I can see the finish line!

#446 6 years ago

OK, here's one you don't see too often. Short ball times, but keeps you wanting to play more. Woodrails were well before my time, but I really like them. Each one is an adventure, since I've usually never played the title before.

Dirt...I have a special request. Some nice pictures of the Kings and Queens in the background. I love Kings and Queens!
PT...Holy SNIKES! Brand new playfield! Lookin nice! Is that NOS or repro? Doesn't matter either way. Just looks so nice!

I like the way they put that service plug way up front away from the incoming power, but where it's more useful! Nice looking game!

#450 6 years ago

Dang, Kings and Queens next to a Big Hit I love the Gottlieb baseball games.
