Quoted from SkyKing2301:
After falling in love with Spanish Eyes at Free Play Florida last November, I'm now an official member of the middle-pop club with my new Miss-O!
November 2016: I fell in love with Spanish Eyes, but couldn't find one.
May 2017: Traded a Jolly Roger for the closest thing to Spanish Eyes that I could find, a Miss-O.
November 2018: Sold Miss-O to put the funds toward an X-Files.
November 2018 - June 2023: Continued searching for a Spanish Eyes.
July 2023: I'm back in the middle pop club baby!!! FINALLY, after almost SEVEN YEARS, I finally got my hands on a Spanish Eyes, and it's MAGNIFICENT. I picked it up from some nice folks about ~2 hours away, who've had it the last five years. They've NEVER had the machine opened up (they were amazed to look inside when I opened it for inspection), and based on how obviously reliable it's been for them -- and everything else I see about its condition -- this was definitely in the hands of someone who knew how to refurbish & tune up machines. It has a pristine BGResto backglass, everything works as it should, flippers are strong, and all the pops are PERFECTLY tuned on a hair trigger for INSANE pop bumper action. The playfield colors are fresh with minimal wear -- a little around the pops that's been covered with mylar, a spot from saucer kickout, and just a smidge starting around some of the inserts. There are LEDs throughout, but they're early Comets that are dim and ghost, so I'm replacing them with newer Sunlight & Warm Whites. I could not be happier with this purchase!
You CAN'T play this game and NOT have fun, hearing those rapid firing pops, crazy ball action, and the wild bouncing-back-from-death around that middle pop. I can't think of any EM that makes me smile as much as this one does.
Fun upgrade for anyone else with Spanish Eyes -- I put Comet 'Fire' bulbs under the Special inserts. It's a GREAT effect, when the Special is lit, it's almost 'animated' as the inserts now flicker to bring your attention to that shot. I tried to capture it on video to share but it doesn't look remotely close to reality. So just trust me on it, and give it a try!20230704_192031 (resized).jpg
