Started off with a half dozen arcade cabinets over the last year or so and have crossed over as of last night. After stating my case and receiving some solid feedback on this forum, decided Firepower was going to be the starter pin. Waited months for the right one to post and closed the deal last night. Can’t wait to get this one in the lineup and start playing......and learning how to fix

Next up......Space Shuttle!

Yeah, pulled the trigger on the one for sale in Jersey. Too nice to pass up and no shipping charges involved. Winner! Fortunately for me, I consulted the Pinside oracles before deciding on which pin to enter the hobby with. I had a bit of a soft spot for Gorgar initially.....and I still do; however, I got some solid guidance on here based on what I could afford.

I have never actually seen a Space Shuttle in the wild and would never have known about its attributes without this forum. Very helpful. I think I can make room for a second...

The pics are in the “For Sale” section of this forum and has been archived. I think there is only one Firepower listed for sale on the first page of that thread. Many pics there. I don’t think I will get to NJ to take possession for a few days yet. Now I gotta figure out how to get the sumbitch out of the minivan and into the house...

The only downside was the ten hours behind the wheel, otherwise a solid buying experience! Seller was very helpful and thorough. Also got a chance to play some Space Shuttle and Sorcerer on outstanding examples of both. Very cool. Hope to get the Firepower in the house and set up tomorrow. Will post a pic when I get it going.

The Firepower is out of the minivan, in the man cave, fully operational and in the lineup! Fired it right up and played a few games. Wife’s first reaction was “Wow....that’s loud....like, arcade loud!” Yes! Yes it is!

It’s official. I’m a pinhead. Firepower!
