    Plnball Hall of Fame

    #802 57 days ago

    Home of the worlds largest pinball sign
    Cant wait to take a selfie in front of it with the family like we went to Wally World.

    Tim is the "MASTER" of keeping things simple and to the point. Glad the sign on the front of his Ten Million Dollar building still matches his style. Why waste money on a fancy sign when you can just paint one word on the front of your building and get the same message out? I am just a little surprised Vegas didn't demand he to something a little more fancy but glad Tim could keep it simple!

    How about we all dig deep and toss a few more dollars at the Go-Fund-Me so he can buy the rest of that red paint and finish that sign!

    is the facade going to be just red on white now?
    the artist rendering was considerably more promising.

    regardless, either taggers have made their presence known or the contractors need a spell checker.

    Stopped by an hour ago, looks like sign will be done by end of day.
    Got to stop and chat + play a quick game. So the soft opening is now, grand opening July 1st.

    Plenty of space for social distancing until another several hundred games get set up. Glad to see they have bike fixtures near entrance. We are so lucky to live about a 10min bike ride away!

    Uh, he's planning a 60ft custom sign on the Strip.

    #807 57 days ago

    The only thing that would make that sign better is a big neon cowboy off to the side

    #808 56 days ago

    Choose a font, color and then paint it on the building. Not much imagination. So simple it might work.

    Inserting a coin into a coin slot.

    Or a neon version of this

    Quoted from Coindork:

    With the money they're saying it cost to build this place I'd expect that 40ft neon cowboy hanging off the side

    #812 56 days ago

    Neon would be incredible!

    #813 56 days ago

    That looks like the worlds largest stencil.

    #814 56 days ago

    the inspiration for the facade artwork is finally revealed as the museum begins to show 'signs of LIFE'.

    Too bad DR seems to have run out of advertising funding.

    Are you serious or just messing around?

    Just killing time as always. But since Tim still has an active "Go-Fund-Me" and lots of bills to pay before PHOF is debt free again and can go back to donating proceeds to charity I am sure he would still appreciate any money that heads in his direction. To me it is one of the most logical donations anyone in the hobby could make. How can you argue with Tim's success with giving to charity over the years?

    #820 54 days ago

    Any new pictures? Anyone here been out to help or out to see the new place in person yet? Can't wait to see some pictures of the progress and to hear more if anyone near that area has anything to share. Remember Tim can still use your money and unlike our government he will not waste it! Since he is a registered Non-Profit donations are tax deductible so if you need a write-off you might want to consider sending PHOF a little money.

    There is another thread since it opened with everything you are asking about.

    Thanks for letting me know! I have not been spending much time on Pinside these days so I don't typically do much as far as looking at new topics. Basically I just stop by once in a while to check my messages and to see if anyone has posted anything new in topics I was watching in the past. I'll have to check out that other post.

    That's because now the store front can't be confused for a nuclear bunker.
