Woah, well that was quite a reaction. Sorry not to reply before, I posted it in Bangkok airport just before boarding my flight back to London.
I admit that we did know *exactly* what reaction this would get. And thanks for not disappointing us! The TNT roof video gave me the same reaction when I first saw it ...... then later I heard the back story and realised nobody wanted to come and take his rubbish away for free, and he wasn't prepared to pay to ship it miles to someone.
When I received this game imported on a pallet from Italy with others, I discovered that some operator had filled in two playfield saucers, and robbed whatever used to lie below them. After much searching I realised that those parts were unobtanium. The rest is history. As stated above, almost anything of value was removed. And then we had some fun with it. Initially we were gonna drive a fast car into it (relax, it was gonna be a MOT failure) but then the dumper truck came up. I was hoping it'd roll over the top, monster truck style, but meh, what are you gonna do?
Nobody meant any disrespect to our American friends by suggesting you all love guns and Trump. It's true, we are all dumb rednecks over here in little England. Us Brits are famous for wishing we had as good a sense of humour as you Americans!
Anyway peace out. My bags just arrived here in Heathrow so I'd better get myself off to my dentist pronto.
what, this one?
yeah, that is a tragedy i agree. i feel bad about that now.
you can see those two saucers i mentioned in this picture as well. maybe i can suggest you make one? using many of the plans on the internet, some lexan and a printer. i swapped all the plastics that weren't completely snapped up like the one you mention, to my working Space Jam. anything you see in the video was basically unrepairable junk. even the legs were all rusted up and bent, with mangled rusted feet. do you want a nice lock down bar perhaps?
one thing about this thread, is that at least the forum moderators didn't just step in themselves and join the baying mob. right? because they moderate instead of instigate, and so they set an example to others. sheesh.
i hope some of the angry ones up there remember to step back and enjoy life. everything has a natural beginning and a natural end. even that beloved thing so dear to all our hearts, pinball. you can nowadays make flat missing plastics fairly easily. the internet is awash with replacement parts for 90s games. knackered old parts are not worth saving when their value is less than postage, and when they're twisted, rusted bent and decayed, beyond what the time-to-try-to-fix is worth. for rare and popular items yes, for the others, sorry no.
that Queen Kate teeth picture was fantastic btw, i enjoyed that one. though i expect by now she's been sent to the royal toothologist. actually when i think of perfect American teeth, you know which image springs to mind? that dentist who shot a lion for his pleasure. i expect that what we did may seem to some of you to be very similar. yes. yes, like on a dog forum.
Quoted from ledge:
whats your next sacrificial pin ?
those wireforms didnt look too bad, no ?
maybe not. so what, you're saying i should have taken them out, photographed them up, listed them on ebay and here and lots of forums, then packaged them up and posted them to someone for $30 or something?
