If it was in my garden during 6 years, with all the rain, it shouldn’t look this good.

#2803 23 days ago
Quoted from LesManley:

The bell has tolled for this Metallica.
Here's the story on this one...
"We all know that our pins belong indoors.....except for this owner
Here’s what happens to a game left outdoors for 6 years, and in one of harshest countries in the world when it comes to extreme heat.
Six. Years. 688 total plays. Game still boots but sadly that’s where it ends for this machine."

Hey honey. Yes? I know the perfect accessory for our back patio. What's that dear? A pinball machine! A what? A pinball machine, and I'll even build a special deck area to put it on. It will be great! We can grill some burgers, have a little friendly competition, then relax in the hot tub afterwards.

Don't worry, it will fit next to the unprotected entertainment center by the sprinkler.

It just needs more voltage, higher voltage to play properly.
Higher voltage will improve the efficiency of electronic units, corroded switches, tired bulbs.

Quoted from ThatOneDude:

Where is the machine actually at?

Okay to be precise, it’s hiding the AC condenser. What an eyesore, but now they have this brutalized Metallic to cover it up!

And yes it’s actually in the UAE

#2807 23 days ago
Quoted from dudah:

Let's see the balls

Look at the captive ball! Completely rusted. Thats crazy.

#2808 23 days ago
Quoted from LesManley:

That Metallica is apparently in the United Arad Emirates. Notice the graveyard markers are tombstones instead of crosses.

That is interesting. How did you figure UAE and not some other Middle East country?

I recognized the Ziziphus Spina-Christi surrounding the pinball machine as being native to the United Arab Emirates.

Interesting. What was the deciding factor on what games got these? All exports or certain countries? I honestly never noticed this variance before and never looked that close and yet there is one of these down in my basement.

You could probably remove the plastic snake and have a real one stand in place.

The power junction box is stamped "DUBAI" in the pic. Sure; it could have ended up elsewhere, but that's the regional power setting it shipped with anyhow.

Nope there's nothing that could go wrong there. I could use that Mars God of War head, wonder what direction he's headed?

I saw this on Facebook. I really hope it's fake. I don't see any signs that it is.

Judging by the condition of the side rails on the Street Fighter, these may have been headed to the dump, not home.

Or they came from the dump.

Lol. You're probably right... I just noticed the "protection" between the strap and the head on Street Fighter. Wouldn't want to scratch it!

#2826 10 days ago

With today’s prices, the machines still out value the truck.

#2827 10 days ago

I mean if I’m driving and see these on the side of the road. I’m gonna pick them up one way or the other. May not be pretty but I ain’t leavin em lol.
So I can’t blame the person

#2828 10 days ago

The Street Fighter and the one next to it look like the coin doors are missing. And I don't see a back box for HH.

It would be nice to have the lockdown bars if they are going to the dump. And what kind of parts are still inside?

Always have ratchet straps and moving in vehichle just in case.

I assumed the backbox on HH was swapped out for a Mars unit at some point, same vintage.

Perhaps because the last time they moved the games HH was on the bottom of the stack instead of the top.

Looking at that stack I could not help but cringe, Haunted House is one HEAVY bitch. It took three of us to move mine from the workshop to the garage.

What page? I saw it all over “Pinball Enthusiasts” and “Pinball wizards” and “pinball random bullshit group #302630”

I think he still has room for 1-2 more pins on the top.
