Quoted from Mk1Mod0:

Meh, its been done before.

Maybe, but quality and effort says a lot more than "has it been done before." That's why HEP is expensive, and I wouldn't even charge someone 200 bucks to do a playfield swap.

Frankly, I think a clear bingo is going to be a lot more interesting than a clear regular pin. I've seen pictures of the insides of bingos, but my only thought was "I'm never buying one of those, way too complicated to figure out!" Seeing one working might change my mind?

Quoted from Lermods:

We will be going to the show next year and likely will be sharing a booth with another vendor. Booked flight, hotel and car over the weekend. It's our first time at TPF and the first time for any show that we will have our mods on display.

Cool - You're really going to like it! Make sure you find some time to leave the booth behind and play some pinball!

I'm looking for an Eight Ball framed backglass.

Given that bonnevil69 (Doom), nelly (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), mk1mod0 (Clearly Insane Bingo), and myself (Star_Trek: The Mirror Universe) are all bringing our custom one-off Pinball machines to TPF'2017... I'm wondering if we should do something special. I'm thinking at the very least we should go hangout and get some food... maybe we should sitdown and have a "fireside" chat in a conference room or something. I haven't talk with the show organizers... but I think we should sit aside some time to "chat" away from the noise of the show with maybe an informal Q&A on our various machines / techniques / advice used to build these works of art.

BTW: My intent is not to ignore anyone who has build a custom table which may be at the show... if you have and intend to bring it to TPF'17; please speak up. These are the ones I can remember right now.

Anyone else interested?

Say between 5 and 7 Friday night? Joking! Would love to if there is actual interest. Isn't Gerry hosting a bunch of P-Roc machines?

Would re-themes be eligible? If so I can ask if Paul would like to contribute his Polynesia tiki-retheme to the effort.

I don't see why not... I'm not trying to limit anyone/thing.
Right now I see it as something "informal" where we all kinda shoot the breeze.
But certainly; if someone wants to lead the effort or suggest a definitive plan/topic - I'm open to it.

I am pretty sure thenotrashcougar will be bringing Total Annihilation as well!

Sweet! Looking forward to seeing it again.

#176 2 years ago

TPF has so much to look forward to this year.

Quoted from Nelly:

No way... really? Add him to the list then.
That means all three machines I cared to see at Expo are actually better here in TX.

Gauging interest in remade EM machine backs. I am adding them to the lineup of Third Coast Pinball but the cost to ship them is insanely high. Delivering to TPF, however, would be free. $25 per includes lock hole. And I'll be making a form explaining the nesc measurements needed, etc.

Anyone else find it suspect that Elvira and Dennis will be in the same panel?

Dennis is suppose to be "revealing" something...

Would it be Elvira_3?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Suspect? More like expectations. Wizbang title produced by Stern.

gawd I hope not. If so; I'm out before it even starts. I don't want anything made by stern given their QA problems, pricing, etc.

Got my tickets, my tournament entry, and my flight booked. All set.

And Spooky announcing their new game too...

#194 2 years ago

At least I won't be disappointed if I don't win the raffle this year, no interest in owning a virtual pin...it would go up immediately for trade/sale. =P

#195 2 years ago

Vpin's don't do it for me (yet) because the unrealistic software is the weak point. But I think at some point I may want one. Pinball Arcade is pretty fun. I wish Arcooda was coming to TPF. Interested to see their cab + Pinball Arcade partnership.

BTW, fellow VECTORIAN Rodney is furiously building a VP of his own. It might make TPF this year. Expecting good things... his Mortal Kombat kab killed it!

#196 2 years ago
Quoted from NicoVolta:

Maybe if someone would buy all my console games I could join the 'cool kids club' too.

I hear ya. My entire high dollar purchase plan (1 NIB or 2015-2017 pin in 2017) hinges on what Spooky shows. I can wait for a HUO for anything else to save some cash and make sure issues are not a problem.

#198 2 years ago
Quoted from Ed_in_Texas:

Well that will save me $30-$40 this year, I have no interest in a VP Cabs Pinball. I was hoping they would be raffleing a Ghostbusters or Game of Thrones this year.

#199 2 years ago

Accomplished pinball designer Joe Balcer is coming to #TPF2017 with American Pinball and an all new, redesigned game! See full article here:
