Just checking in, seeing what people are up to.
Has anybody bought a new or used pinball machine lately?
Any other good news?
I put a deposit down on an Elvira House of Horrors Premium.
It might arrive spring or summer.
It gives me time to come up with the balance of the money.
Due to various reasons I had reduced my collection down quite a lot.
Reasons: Money, space, health, and my three pinball friends / helpers leaving Antioch (my health leaves me unable to move pins or even work on them).
So I really needed another pin like a hole in the head, but as the last two "A list" project pins went away, I felt a void...
I managed to figure out a way I could fit all my remaining pins in my house, and still have one space
(and then have a cranky wife for moving a pin into the house from the garage, and spending the money - but that's from having sold my other pins, so that's "okay").
It looks like EHOH has a lot of moving stuff on the playfield, and might need some tinkering out of the box, but I figured one new pinball machine would be a lot less work/maintenance
than 2 fixer upper DMDs decades old.
That, and I'm addicted to buying the next shiny thing.
There sure are a lot of choices when it comes to machines to buy these days, and in the near future with the various boutique brands.
So if per chance this doesn't really float my boat, or there's something else that newer and and shinier, I'm pretty sure I could sell this one pretty quickly - it's rather a hot item at the moment.
Anybody acquire a machine lately too?
Any other good news, something interesting, or exciting plans?
