Hey y'all, I'm a brand new member with a question. My hubby is a huge pinball fan and has a POTC that he'd like a skull and crossbones topper for and I'd like to surprise him with one as a gift. I have no idea where to even start looking. Sure would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. Thank you!!!!

No sure about that particular topper, but Back Alley Creations sells lots of great mods for POTC

Matt McKee made the awesome topper I have on POTC, but I believe they are hard to come by these days. Just letting you know, so maybe you can post a wanted ad for this specific one if it's what you are referring to.

Yes. In the market place.

No need to be sorry. We all started at some point.

You have a fortunate hubby.

Ip check ... sorry but this seems bogus

What seems bogus?? I'm confused.

When I go to do an ad looking for the topper, it tells me that my status does not allow that. What does that mean?

Probably means you haven't been a member long enough or made enough posts to do so.

PM one of the moderators to see if anything can be done.

That neon is cool too. Us pin husbands are so happy that you are contributing to our obsession that any Pinball gift is sure to make his day.

Thank you!! He sometimes drives me crazy with it all, but I know he loves it. I also just ordered him a really great tshirt I found with a picture of a wizard playing pinball. Made me giggle. Hopefully he finds it as amusing as I do. Lol.

He is saying that he thinks you are bogus. We have a lot of issues with trolls that start up threads very similar to this one in order to establish a new account here and continue their trolling here. Things like "I can't find pinball stuff, so I look to all you fine pinheads" is usually a good indication. If he is incorrect, well you will just need to cut him some slack, because I thought the exact same thing when I saw this post.

Wow. Ok. I am certainly not a "troll". My hubby is actually a member on here and he is always on here so I thought it would be a good resource for finding gifts/surprises for him. We really do own several machines and have had a number of different titles over the years. Hope you don't accuse all new members of being fake- not very welcoming for a forum. I run several fb groups for my own interest areas and we try to be welcoming and kind to all. Thank you to the folks above who were helpful, kind and welcoming. I appreciate you very much!! I had no other way of getting good helpful info from pinball people without him getting suspicious as he is the hardest person on the planet to surprise. So again, thank you to the kind folks above. If there is an admin who wants to pm me to verify who my hubby is or what titles we own, I would be happy to talk to them. If I post that info here, I'm afraid the surprise would be ruined.

A quick look says she checks out. Carry on.

Pinballwidow- We have some former/banned members who think that it is fun to cause daily havoc by making new accounts to troll, so please excuse the pessimism and caution from the ones who have been around awhile. I'm quite fast with the IP checks on new people myself these days. Welcome, I hope you find what you need, and if you want to chat with the small group of girls on here check out the club thread I started awhile back. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinside-girls-club I don't use the market at all, but if you need help with something just message me and I can help you figure it out.

Welcome!

Oh, I totally get the username. When there's a new Destiny or Deus Ex game out, I may as well be a widow. Husband completely disappears and/or only answers me in grunts while fixated on his game. Luckily his games cost way less than a pin and I'm the pin addict in the house, or we'd be in trouble.

Thank you for the welcomes!!!! It's nice to hear from some other ladies too!!!!

The username reminds me of my favorite thread ever:
