A Credit Button. Someone didn't know how to put it on Freeplay.

#1555 13 days ago

They were playing it with sandpaper.. those rusty balls. Like little grinding stones being kicked around the machine every play.

I’m wondering if that‘s really a horror pic... Maybe it‘s just a Funhouse which provided a ton a joy to a lot of people and got the heck played out of it.

But you‘re probably right that some new shiny balls from time to time might have been a good thing.

There are pins at the PHOF that have gotten the hell played out of them, but Tim regularly waxes the playfields to keep them clean and keep a barrier between the ball and the paint so that doesn't happen.

I think it's a doorbell!

Hope that show flops, or already flopped. Thats just uncalled for. You can explain/show how interesting things work without destroying them, what a moron.

I guess in a disposable everything society that is considered cool or something.

Never... I wasn't so concerned about the EM but that NBA game, my god!

#1572 10 days ago

10 episodes in 2010. IMDB user reviews.. "dumbest show ever".

I like that they took out all the mechs in the backbox and cab for the EM, but then for some reason they cut a brand new NBA in half???
Someone in production was clearly an EM collector, gave them his old cab and trashed playfield but took the valuable parts needed for later repairs. Then saw the NBA gave it the stink eye :b

What a f**king wanker>What does that achieve? Should've donated the NBA to some needy kids or something.Then you could go and get yourself a life moron.

What sucks is he did it for veiws and we are giving him what he wants by watching his stupidity.

#1577 10 days ago

It was a TV program on the History Channel. The program only ran for one season, in 2010.
Since NBA is a 2009 game, it was likely purchased NIB by the program, specifically so that idiot could cut it in half for the show.
It appears that the whole show was this idiot cutting various things in half "to see how they work".
There's a reason it only ran for one season. It was a stupid idea.

That makes sense. It was overdubbed English.

Sounds like the show was trying to complete with old Jesse James when he trashed a nice Delorean and another time when he bought a restored 1967 SS 396 El Camino and completely trashed it.

What kind of budget does this show have?!

that delorean destruction was terrible, but those guys really dropped the ball on the project too. "i told you to make a delorean hover, not take a delorean chassis and stick it on an existing hovercraft. it needs to look stock, thats the point of the show"

#1582 10 days ago

Painful to watch as a collector.he might as well burn some fine art and see how that works too what a fkn idiot.ugg

One of the biggest YouTube channels is called What's Inside and they do the same thing as Sliced.

Father and son ripping stuff apart with no tact or skill whatsoever. Like they take apart an MacBook by slicing across the middle of the LCD to lob off the top half.

They also sliced in half a vintage Ms Pac Man.

So lame, but they're super successful.

Shame the CRT in the Ms Pac Man didn’t discharge on them while cutting it in half

60s rock band The Who did not start getting big until after they started destroying their eguipment live on stage.

Jimi Hendrix set a Stratocaster on fire with use of lighter fluid.

Rock bands liked the publicity they got when they would trash hotel rooms.

Destruction attracts voyeurs.

Goofy stage antics are part of the show. I remember seeing a video about the gear KISS uses on stage. The guitar tech was explaining how before each show, he rebuilds the cheap guitar that Paul will use to play half a song on and then smash on stage that night. He touches up the paint on the body, and glues back together or replaces the neck with a light weight one, etc. Yay superglue!

Just picked up a Gottlieb Flying Carpet - looks like the transformer was replaced (for some reason)
and they didn't have any electrical tape. Fiber tape to the rescue!

It is totally unheard of to just unsolder a dead transformer and correctly solder in a replacement. I hope that they did not cut the wires too short to re-connect them directly to the transformer.
