    So a couple months ago i had been asking around on this forum for a tron table.. and once i bought that machine i decided to buy an ac/dc table... then after that i decided to just go all out lol.. i ended up turning my garage into a pinball "man cave" i guess you'd say.. I bought shrek, elvis, and pirates of the caribbean (all from MP amusement), so now i have 5 machines in there. Painted the walls, added a jukebox, black and white tile laminate for the flooring, led lights around the wall, turned out pretty neat in my opinion. Anyways i had made a video showing the transformation, just thought id share it with you fellas on here. I got a wizard of oz ruby red table coming this week to add into my collection, and im currently looking for a batman dark knight table to finish it off (there is JUST enough room to fit those 2 machines on the end before i am completely out of room in the garage lol). What is funny about it is someone on here said "once you get 1 or 2 machines your going to want more".. i never thought id end up with this many but i really do love some pinball. Now just got to find time to play them lol..

    anyways here is the vid (i don't know how to embed the video on the post, if someone wants to tell me i can try to do it, otherwise here is the link on youtube)

    The ACDC is a Premium, not LE and you should put something under the legs so they dont dig into the flooring .

    It looks awesome though and nice selection of pins! POTC better then Tron??? Its ok ill fogive you!

    Nice video. Have you looked into something like Pinfooties to keep the flooring from getting damaged?

    Ah, ya your right on the acdc, i just wasn't thinking when i said that, i guess the LE is the back in black version, "premium" just didn't click in my head when i mentioned that, but if i ever get around to doing an actual gameplay / review video i will make sure i correct that.

    I did think about putting something down under the legs like what you mentioned, i probably should find something to put down before i rip up the vinyl laminate.

    As far as tron goes, my wife and kid LOVE the tron table, and i love the movie.. but so far i just haven't really been able to get into it. I've yet to even crack a leaderboard score on it, and when i do play it i have a really tough time keeping the ball in play, i drain out faster on there than any other table for sure.. its not even close. That is probably why i haven't enjoyed playing it as much, i think im pretty average so far when it comes to skill..

    I have pretty good reflexes but i haven't really done much bumping on the tables which is something you really need to do a lot of on the tron machine in my opinion.. seems like the ball always wants to drop straight down the middle or drain out the sides.

    I will probably enjoy playing the shrek machine a little more once the donkey pinball right flipper gets fixed, when i got the machine it wasn't working that well. It works just fine with the service menu opened up and pressing the button inside the door, but it won't work with the right flipper button. Oddly enough the main right flipper of the machine works just fine lol.. M&P amusement has it on warranty so they will be down to fix it soon. Gene over there is a really cool guy, the LED lighting they did on shrek, pirates, and elvis look awesome.

    Also, i did remove the mid video ads off of the youtube vid, i didn't even know they were on there until just now. Machinima has that channel networked and they kind of took it upon themself to add mid-video ads to the entire channel i guess.. bleh.. (i don't actively work on that channel anymore)

    I don't know "Black Rose" but from what I have seen posted about him he seems like a good guy. On the other hand I live about a hour from M&P Amusements and rarely have I ever talked to anyone who has bought from them and had a good experience.

    Even if you pull up old post you will likely see what I am talking about with M&P. I hate to be negative towards anyone in the hobby (or business) but I do have to agree with Black_Rose. Next time you are looking for a pin you might want to check in with him and at least compare.

    In any event glad you are enjoying this great hobby!

    Your gameroom garage looks great! You have a nice variety of games, all nice ones Be sure to teach your boy all about the games, and get him excited about pinball. I'm certain it's something he'll cherish for years to come.
