Episode 445 - Service Calls, Coin-Op Carnival Shipping, Universal 5-Star, 1952 Gottlieb Coronation
Apr 11, 2019
I've been digging myself out of my backlog on local service calls since my return from Texas. I talk about one interesting EM call I had recently.
Coin-Op Carnival's reception has been fantastic! Come see Ryan at the second tour stop for the book at the MSU Abram's Planetarium, Sunday, April 14th at 6PM. This is a free event! Following Ryan's presentation (a 360 degree video of Wayne Neyens demonstrating his "Spirit of '76" and his office with pinball memorabilia), there will be a book signing and an array of great games designed by Wayne Neyens or featured in Coin-Op Carnival #1. More information available at www.coinopcarnival.com/appearances.
Sophie has been learning how to repair EMs by working on a Universal "5-Star", which is a very unique game. She's looking forward to playing it soon.
Today's featured game is Gottlieb's "Coronation" from 1952. https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=568&picno=23138
This is one of the iconic games of the woodrail era, notable for its fantastic art package as well as its gameplay.
The plastics on this game have been recreated by Ryan Claytor and are for sale at the Pinball Resource: http://www.pbresource.com/plastic/pl070.jpg
