Quoted from chadderack:

The same heero-glypics over and over. But what do they mean?

Apparently they mean "You will spends years restoring this game!"

Quoted from ita47:

This has to be one of, if not the nicest Congo's in existence. True collector quality! Nice work bro, look out HEP

Don't get carried away!

Quoted from jgentry:

Awesome show again. Thanks to everyone that works so hard to put it on.
Game highlights for me were
Restored Congo
Restored Pharaoh (what an incredible game)
Zombie pitch and bat
Refinery TWD
Moded out TOM in the back corner
Restored Frontier
Do we have an official date for 2018 yet? I would like to go ahead and reserve my room to make sure I'm at the Embassy again next year.

Cool to see Congo on that short list And I agree that Pharoh was a sight to behold. The etched lockdown bar was a nice touch

Quoted from TxJay:

Ha! Congrats on the win GOV. Well deserved! That Congo is amazing. You did a great job. It was great to finally meeting you face to face and I really enjoyed talking to your dad during to show as well. He is a great guy.

Great meeting you as well!! You did an amazing job on your Lethal Weapon 3. I think had more people known what that game looked like when you started, you would have won best in show!! I am not even joking about that.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

Also, Anyone have a Pic or Video of the Winning Congo?
(sorry if it has been posted already and I missed)

I stupidly didn't take any pictures of the machine at the show There are some pictures at the end of my restoration thread I took before I packed it up for TPF.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

So Sorry I missed your thread, and the show, but Congrats!
Color me impressed with your work, as well!
Very clean lighting job!!

Thanks Art. I used the Comet Sunlight GI bulbs in the GI and they look great. Perfect color temp for Congo.

#1396 2 years ago
Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

I didnt know that, and its what I used too!
Was that the original Playfield?
Seriously guys, Im not in the biz anymore, and I hope you dont mind me plugging because I like the best too,
but if you liked his game, Give these a Try!
Thats another Winner for Comet Bulbs, the second as Stark Trek Mirror, won a few years back.

It was the original playfield. It had they typical wear in the kickouts and shooter lane. It had been played a lot and was super filthy. Cleaned up good though

I will happily plug Comet Bulbs as well. The sunlight GI bulbs are my favorite GI bulb hands down. Such a clean color temp that works well with so many games.

Quoted from unigroove:

What a fantastic show this was! Huge thanks to Kim, Ed, Paul and Ken, all volunteers, exhibitors and others that helped make it so great! Will write a report that will be available on http://www.pinball-magazine.com later this week (hopefully)

The decision to move the trivia contest to the hotel lounge during happy hour was a brilliant move IMO

Quoted from bflagg:

Best in show was Kevin Moores Bride of Pinbot. Congo won best 90's I believe.

Correct.

#1481 2 years ago
Quoted from dothedoo:

If you'd be happier with Best 90's I can modify your plaque and you can send me the extra money.
Seriously though, your BOP looked great, sounded great and played even better. You deserved winning Best of Show. Congratulations!

I can just swap the plaques if you want

That thing was a beauty. Well deserved. I do find it weird that the best in show doesn't come from one of the division winners especially the way the reveal the awards.
