    Just figured I'd create a nice (*cough* drama free) thread to post up pics / stories / info etc about Expo. This will also make for great pinball porn to all those pour souls who are chained to their desks and can't make the fun. Me and AceJedi are currently on our couple hour drive to the Bay Area to catch a red eye flight and bring us into expo at 7am tomorrow. It's party time folks. See you all there (and here).

    Wish I could make it!!!!

    #6 6 years ago

    I'm there now and will be to Saturday at least. Free play game area is looking great with some rare games to play. I'd say the hall is over 2/3rds full at this time. Look towards seeing more of you here in the next few days.

    #7 6 years ago

    Wow Justin...That machine has legs growing out of it.

    Give me a call/text or pictures about Predator when you get there, I want to see what we are getting ourselves into. Have fun Buddy!

    #8 6 years ago

    Awesome, can't wait to see pictures and hear stories. Enjoy!

    Too busy at work to make it this year.

    Keep us posted guys!

    #10 6 years ago

    Farming is running late this year, so I going to have to pass the expo up this year.
    For all of you that can make it ..... ENJOY!!!!

    Be sure to attend the LTG show! I really enjoyed it last year Llyod !

    #11 6 years ago

    Is there a particular day that is best to Attend for just free play? I'm visiting with family for most of the trip but would really like to go play for a day. I was a little confused by the schedule because it says that certain halls are closed sometimes and I was wondering if that affected the freeplay area. This is my first pinball show so I'm really excited to get over there!

    #12 6 years ago

    Already started off the weekend by forgetting backbox bolts for 3 out of 4 games.

    I think Friday will be the worst day to attend for the games area due to Brawl. I think Thursday night (kickoff) or Saturday would work best.

    #13 6 years ago

    Just got here but too late for the free play so I just walked around and watched some folks playing Star Trek. The PAPA setup looks like all new Sterns almost (which I mostly suck at) so I think I won't be doing too well in the tourney. Need to get some rest since tomorrow is an early ass start! I'll be wearing my SFPD (San Francisco Pinball Dept) hoodie to represent!

    #14 6 years ago

    Word is that there will in fact be no LE or Premium Star Trek Machine at the expo this year. (Of course, this may be false statement itself, as Stern is known to keep secrets, etc). What I heard was the one and only look/view of a real life Stern Star Trek LE will be at the actual Stern Factory Tour Thursday Morning. If you dont see it there: you aint gonna see it. Also, that particular unit is not for play, but will be powered on showing off the lights, etc. No-one will be allowed to touch it.

    We shall see what is true in about 8.5 hours. I will have my DLSR with me to document whatever it is that we see, even if it is nothing. From there it will be on pinside very quickly.

    #15 6 years ago

    I'm in Chicago right now for business, but hoping to make it to Expo for a few hours on Saturday. Looking forward to reports before that though!

    I would like to thank whoever turned off my Soccer machine. It turns out the blue goalie up solenoid was locked on. Pulled the board out and found a bad MOSFET. Its replaced, but I can't put it back together with out some other parts do the the board having 2 hacks on it that I was not aware of. Hopefully It will be back up in the afternoon some time.

    #18 6 years ago

    I made arrangements to go to Expo months ago but had to drop out a few weeks ago and head overseas for work. I am trying my best not to be jealous! Maybe next year...

    Keep the info coming. I'll eagerly read every post.

    No... REAL LE pics. In person one... With lights on...

    Was just told no photos allowed by lady who walked onto the bus.

    So... No photos. Apparently.

    #26 6 years ago

    Popped in last nite to see what was going on! Said hi to Borygard, Korn & She-Korn, met Derek (MusketD) and Chris from Cointaker! Played Star Trek, that ICE Flintstones, and a few games in the free play room! Was too tired to keep going...I'll be back in a few hours for seminars! Wooo!

    Nice fattrain! thanks for sharing. Love the shield indicators on the apron!

    #42 6 years ago

    Didn't figure the Enterprise in the side armor would light up too. Man they pulled out all the stops for the bling on this one.

    #43 6 years ago

    Very cool! I don't see anything in the apron for the laser light show. Is that small hole in the apron for a spot light?

    Game looks bad ass!

    #44 6 years ago

    Very nice indeed
