It's a happy day! WH2O is in finally in my shop.
I'm starting to think joining Pinside is going to be bad for my health because my wife is surely going to kill me
The pin purchasing frenzy certainly kicked into high gear after joining just a few weeks ago (yes, I partially blame all of you enablers for my impending doom... but at least I'll have some fun until that day comes).

WH2O is my 1st locally purchased pin. I probaby paid a small premium on this title, but it was so much easier than importing from the US. The other two games are an AFM (located in LA) and a deposit on BHZA. AFM is sitting in my comapany's LV warehouse awaiting "cheap transport". Mercifully, BHZA is several months away. I feel like a little kid on Christmas!

I don't have many sexy images to post yet... just a couple of wrapped up "in transit shots", but I'll be posting more as I start renovating. Here are a couple of teasers

Woooo + Hoooo!!!!

Thanks! Can't wait to set it up tomorrow and dive in. Looks like the previous owner did the Bumble mod on it. Luckily he saved the original. I think I prefer Bigfoot. If anyone wants a ready-made Bumble, let me know.

Congrats on the new pins and can't wait to see pics of WH20 setup and playing.

Yeah, I loved playing it back in high school. Just need an FT to go next to it now

That would be a fair bit longer than "several months."

No need Doc, I think you're doing just fine with that awesome line-up
It's just a matter of time before you get one I'm sure. There was a great example in LA not too long ago. As far as I know the seller is still working on the deal. It was $3K on Mr. Pinball. He sent me pics. Very nice condition except for an incorrect speaker panel.

WH2O is great first pin. I myself had to get one in the same frenzy that seemingly possessed us both...hmmmm...spreading via internet? Impossible! Let's get some pics of that bad boy set up. Grats

I had a beautiful one a few years back, that I traded for an equally nice CFTBL heads up. At the time it was a no brainer trade for me, as I was tired of WH20 and CFTBL was easily worth $500-700 more. CFTBL was quickly moved on, and that $$ went toward AFM. Can't say I regret selling it, because of the machine I parlayed it into. But I find myself missing it lately. Thinking about grabbing another one. Bet I have to pay more than the $1850 that the first one set me back, though.

One day I too will get my Wh20!

Let's get some pics of that bad boy set up.

OK. Here are a few more. Sad to say I have not played a single ball on it since picking it up. The game is in my "shop" (aka a make-sift clean room in my company's warehouse) so my time with it has been limited so far. Also, we're having an electrical issue in that part of the buiding today so I can't get power to it until this afternoon or tomorrow morning

Here are some shots set up. The cabinet is the only real knock on this game... and the faded topper.
Check out the bumble! I'll be putting bigfoot back in once I'm done.
