    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Anyone here getting in on the new Batman?

    Love the theme, but not buying anything without more information.
    I'm sure it's going to be great but we will wait to make sure everything is good.
    Our Ghostbusters Pro has zero ghosting but the crazy stories showing up with the LE's has me a bit worried about my premium. Hopefully the issues have been solved.

    Good point. Best to take a wait and see approach. I'm really looking forward to playing BM66 though!

    Quoted from Nevus:

    No way. This PF stuff has got to be addressed. Games are flooding the market and I have a lot of old games still on my list. I think my next new game will be an Alien Kit. Other than that, I'm passing on new Sterns for a while. I'm really enjoying my current line up.

    I'm going to be the annoying houseguest that plays your games, talks about my youth, drinks too much, overstays my welcome, and passes out underneath BBB.

    Not as much as I look forward to:

    1. Drinking beer
    2. Driving my own car
    3. Eating a cheeseburger
    4. And... other stuff

    Looking forward to hanging out with you guys!

    #556 3 years ago

    Mudflaps are you stationed in Korea? I did lots of drinking when I was there in 1988 no Driving ate at Mr Lee's make shift burger joint nothing like a hamburger at 2 am with an egg on it when you come out of the club's.

    I wish I was in Korea! I'd be swilling Soju like it was my job. I was there a few years ago and ate McDonald's the whole time. I'm not an adventurous fellow.

    The Pyongyang location is a joke. I'm not really in North Korea.

    Quoted from PoBoyPinball:

    Mudflaps are you stationed in Korea? I did lots of drinking when I was there in 1988

    I went to South Korea for a week in 2014. Beer was $4 a bottle. Hard alcohol was even more expensive. At $4 a beer, that's basically banning beer. The Koreans are just not big drinkers in general as a people...at least not compared to Americans.

    #559 3 years ago

    I drank enough Tiger beer on Diego Garcia to pickle my liver. That stuff is awful, but when it's all you got...

    #560 3 years ago

    Blame it on the Olympics in 1987 a beer was about .80 cents I went back in 2008 and I couldn't believe how much the country had changed 1988 no one had cars 2008 everyone has car's. There attitudes had changed also in 20 years. I asked about it and with the Olympics their country was basically discovered by all the other countries.

    #561 3 years ago

    Tiger law you should have asked for some Soju it will get you going I remember something about invisibility and invincibility when you drink it just depends on how much. I know the Rock Army (Korean Army) soldiers could drink but you're right in don't recall a lot of Koreans in the bars even when we went to a Korean bar and not a club for the Americans

    What I observed in a week in Korea was the Koreans are not that big into drinking or dining. They do not have long dinners where everyone hangs around the food chatting, the restaurants feed you and sweep you out.

    I drank some Soju, but if you order more than one fill of it while at a restaurant you get looked at like you have some kind of drinking problem. Did you see the glass they usually serve it in? The one that talks about you missing work if you finish one glass...I mean, it really is ridiculous. Here is a copy, the same glass is in every restaurant that serves it...it's like a comical government warning not to drink and miss work.

    Glasses, they didn't have those when I was there, here is what a small jungle juice looked like if you wanted a large it came in a kitty pool. both with straws they didn't let us have glass...

    Reminder for everyone interested. Red River Replay Tournament is Sept 24.

    I plan to cook plenty of BBQ and have a great time.

    Big Bang Bar
    GoT Pro
    LOTR LE
    STLE
    AMH
    Full Throttle
    Banzai Run
    Safecracker
    Centigrade 37
    Congo
    and Dr Dude if ready.

    #565 3 years ago

    When did you pick up a Dr. Dude?

    Any hotel suggestions near your house? Marriotts preferred but Embassy Suit would be cool too if one is nearby.

    We are super excited about your tourney. I'm going to go practice some Assault the Vault right now.

    #566 3 years ago

    Dr dude is the latest drop off from Charlie the local operator. Not mine, but a loaner to shop and enjoy for a few weeks as a favor for shopping it. It's not working properly now, but I plan to get it going in time.

    #567 3 years ago

    Ah I see you found a safecracker

    #568 3 years ago

    I'm really itching to get some purple armor for our pro now! Plus I've been dying to have sparky painted we just can't decide on what to paint him like. Lately we were leaning towards a Godfather theme since we have the mafia nickname now.

    #575 3 years ago

    Custom painted sparky is always a good idea!

    Quoted from KingNine:

    Not sure if enough room on Sparky's chest and head, but possibly something short written on his shirt that sorta taunts you guys like:

    Bring it Pinball Mafia! -or-
    Whatever Pinball Mafia! -or-
    No hat throwing here!

    #577 3 years ago

    Or:
    Bite Me GCPC!

    #578 3 years ago

    Maybe something more general/broader pinball related on Sparky:

    Pinside Troll
    Stern Microwave Survivor
    $10k by Christmas
    You Pinsluts

    Nice.
    Did you get that upper flipper angled a bit better to help out with the whirlpool shots?

    #582 3 years ago

    Have you installed him in vehicle? That'd be awesome!

    Jodester hid his prize. He and I will have side tournament bets with the karate kid photo moving forward.

    Are we getting a both at HAAG? With Marcus being the tourney director I plan to spend most of the show in the tourney area like we did last year.

    #586 3 years ago
    Quoted from KingNine:

    Paint him like Preston. Give him a full beard and everything! It may toss Preston off his game when y'all have tourneys.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I hadn't thought of it, but I wasn't planning to bring games. Do you want it just to support the show or for a specific reason like placing our games? I had a good time last year just hanging out in the tournament room.

    I'm happy to support the show, but find the DJ area not to my liking. I only go in there to look for my kids.

    I don't think we need a booth. I was just responding to Pinball-is-great. The tournament area will be my hang out spot this year for sure.

    #589 3 years ago

    I have no business in your thread but I wish I was an honorary member.
    My sister lived in Baton Rouge for years.
    Had to thumb up a few awesome recent purchases, along w/great charity work/tourneys you put on.
    That is all. I'm out. Carry on.

    Just to clarify a bit, I only meant to have a section of the floor space to group our machines together like we have done at TPF.
    I realize some club members may not be bringing machines to Hou Expo. I usually bring one machine to Hou Expo and to TPF.
    Last year I brought an e-m machine, so I actually ended up placing it in the e-m pinball machine area.
    No big deal if we don't have a club area for GCPC & ArkLaTex Pinball Club, but I do prefer it when we group our pins together.

    I definitely don't want to have a formal booth with tables, since we are not selling merchandise/parts.
    If we do get a club area, I definitely don't expect anyone to sit in our area behind a table doing nothing.

    #592 3 years ago

    I'm bringing Quicksilver but it will be a tournament game in the tourney area. I assume it will fit in my Cad SRX? I know it doesn't fit a modern Stern, I hope it fits the classic stern.
