Great video. Thanks for taking the time to share it. JP owner aside, that thing has to be worth 7-8k no? Nice and minty fresh. Screen printed, topper, built (ish)
Toys, theme, fun game

Your serial number appears to be in the middle of the run.

Is this related to the month long circle jerk in the other thread about s nib jp?

#67 2 years ago

Ive always really liked Data East games. I have 3 including JP. They are just built like tanks. My Stern KISS has had problems since the day I unboxed it. If DE were still around i would consider buying NIB again.

No, that was a different s nib jp.

They are?!?! Some of the crappiest built games I've ever owned were DEs.

I'll admit by the early 90s they had gotten it together a little bit but those original games are some of the worst built pinball machines ever. Especially the cabinets.

#69 2 years ago

The early-mid90s are what i am referring to. JP TFTC etc.

I didn't expect to see #455 flashers in the backbox. Neat stuff!

#71 2 years ago

Great Video!

But where is the "Link" to the story?

I want to know how the heck someone looses a pinball machine for 25 years...

#72 2 years ago

I cringed when they got to the batteries. NO PROBLEM!

Also, get some hole protectors on there stat! Biggest weakpoint on a JP.

Well, TAF had #455s and since this game is a wholesale ripoff of that machine I guess they figured they should throw some in?

I always felt it was more inspired by Whirlwind but the diverter ramp is pretty unmistakably TAF. What is the backstory and reactions of B/W when it was released?

It wasnt lost. It sat in a basement this whole time.

Oh, in the vid he would post about the back story... and that it was lost for sometime... this kind of blew me away... wish I had that problem... LOL

But would love to know the reason why it sat in the box for so long... I think its great, but damn it... I just want to know why!

Anyways, I thought the vid was awesome...

The whole back story is posted in the original thread. Its worth the read.

It was not in a basement. It sat in a heated garage for 24 years.

I'm a little late to the party...

Do you have a link to it?

Thanks for the video, I for one enjoyed seeing that guy get powered up for the first time

Great video.. I really enjoyed how thorough the description was as you progressed unpacking it.

I’m newer to the hobby, but curious why games would ship with batteries installed in the first place? Granted this game was the far end of extreme longevity, but any number of games back then could have sat NIB for 1-3+ years. Was it not commonly known batteries could leak? With the gun installation, legs, levelers, and other setup, I would think installing 3 double A batteries and a zip tie would still be reasonable for a new game too.

I agree and have no idea why they would pre-install them.

Games didn't sit for years - they were put out on route to make money. Games didn't sit in inventory at retailers, etc.. every few months the companies were shipping the next new game. If you sat on a game for 2 years, it was already a 'has been' and wouldn't earn as well as it could.. so there is no incentive for games to sit.

And yes, people knew alkaline batteries could leak - but you also find that the companies used good batteries that would not leak - like you saw here. Leaking batteries were often because after the initial batteries died, everyone replaced them with crappier batteries.

I can't think of any NIB opening of games from the 80s or 90s where the AA batteries had leaked.

You're trying to apply logic in hindsight.. like 'why would you make games unsafe to sit for many years?' - that was never their intent, so never any need to protect against that.

Nice video.
Could You share the dimensions for the topper's light deflector curved metal part on backbox? Mine is missing, and I'd like to reproduce it. Thanks!
