I put a few games on it myself. Mike did a great job creating a beautiful pin. Congrats to the new owner you will love the game play/call outs. One Eyed Willie will be looking to play this one dark foggy night. Keep a few pieces of eight close by cause he dont carry quarters!

Quoted from copperpot:

From Orlando to Arizona! Mike, I'm MORE than excited!! Unfortunately, it's going arrive too late to bring to Zapcon this year, but I can promise it will be there next year! Also, I don't like to claim publicly about how much of a Goonie fan I am, but I think I have you beat by a hundred pounds or so .
Once it arrives, I'll throw up some pics to show its new home, I hope to be able to do it justice, and continue to share this with the community as MUCH as possible.

Please, please, PLEASE post more gameplay videos when you get it bro! What a great looking game. Wow, wow!!

If I didn't know any better, I'd have thought this game made it's way to Michigan.

There it goes. Gotta be a bittersweet moment for you, Mike. Congrats to you and the buyer (sorry, wasn't following the thread as closely as I should have in order to know his name).

#108 4 years ago

And this is where I CONSTANTLY nervously ponder its journey across the United States and anxiously await the phone call for delivery...

Quoted from SSrig:

Congrats Wes! Glad its coming to AZ

Thanks man! I'm clearing and cleaning out the arcade this week to make room for this bad boy when it does arrive.

Congratulations, Wes! Looks like you scored quite a machine. So glad to hear it's going to a collector and fan who plans on taking it to public showings.

Enjoy!

They will take great care of that machine, they dont want the Fratelli's coming after them. Great score! I watched the videos as Mike created that pin, he did a amazing job. I've owned lots of "rare" pins but that is truly rare

Sorry for digging up a old thread but I acquired the Goonies from Copperpot back in Jan and I may decide to let it go in the near future to free up some space. I hate to do it but just don't have room in the collection for a one off rare machine like this.

If anyone does have interest, feel free to send me a msg and I'll keep you posted.

Anyone interested? I'm about 99.99% sure I'm going to sell it.

Machine works 100%, beautiful artwork lots of good Goonies sounds and have the art files if anything ever needs to be replaced.

Send PM if interested

Did the game sell?

#117 2 years ago

It sold

Hi Leothelowe,

I have the Goonies pin now. However, I will probably sell it in a few months to help fund other new projects.

The Goonies pin did need some improvements: (and PSW757/Pat was forthright and honest about them)

1. Added 8 relay switches to the all the current leaf switches. (5 are shown below)
2. Fixed all the sound issues. (like the game sound not turning off after the last ball played)
3. Upgraded all the speakers. (The original sub/cone was ripped).
4. Added ventilation fan inside the cab.
5. Made a new high rez translight (the old image was blurry and a very bad print)
6. Plan to upgrade all the current mods, currently they are secured very poorly.
7. Adding new mods > pirate ship, sparky TV mod with Goonies playing, additional pop bumper, possible One Eyed Willy Troll mech, and a new new ramp.
8. Gold/brass plate all the armor with gold T-molding. (the current yellow is to loud)
9. Basically solid stating everything so its more reliable.

Piper strikes again! Looks great man!

#128 2 years ago

Each ball lock will now be interactive.

Lock the ball under the Key and both eyes turn red. Lock the 2nd ball next to it and the cannon will start firing at you. Make the ramp shot to complete the mulitball.....more to follow next week).

Goonies is about finished. Adding some finishing touches today. Like a new set of ruby red-chrome front buttons.
