Makes sense. You need a huge center post on a game as deep and impossibly difficult as LW3.

I can't decide if the repair around the edges on this machine qualifies as a clever repair or a horror pick.

There is more!

This is from the same ad. Note that they spraypainted the chrome speaker panels white.

As to "where did her pants go"... I had a Torpdeo Alley for 6 months (great game!). It was perhaps the horniest game I've ever owned. What is interesting on the pants thing as that they airbrushed the pants onto the captain on the translite. Something about the darker pants being "too revealing". If you look closely the pants here are white... those are airbrushed onto the Captain. Also... the trim here.

Found a poorly advertised estate sale with pinball machines!

Got there an hour early to be the first one there!

They open the doors and tell me that someone came the night before and bought them.

D'oh!

I didn’t notice until I took the ramps off. I don’t see how a ball could even get in there. So luckily no one should ever see these holes.

Only had a pin with one or two, still shuddered at the thought.

Everything turned out all right and its my favorite SS Williams pin.

Fun machine

#4072 55 days ago

Oddly yes; went out and purchased a Firepower and Space Shuttle and for some unfathomable reason I love the Blackout better then the other two. I never get bored playing it and love the sounds it makes. Getting Blackout is maddening to pull off and I'll keep hitting the start button till I pull it off most of the time.

Don't transport a game with the head up in the back of a truck.

Reminds me when I bought my Royal Flush off facebook, the seller told me someone messaged him about buying it with the intent to convert it to a fish tank. The seller declined and was happy to sell it to me when I told him I was a collector looking for that game. It was in great condition, he bought it when he was 16 with the money he earned from his paper route and it obviously meant a lot to him but he didn't have the space for it anymore.

This abomonation got donated to us today. Rich old guy downsizing needed it gone. Even the leg levelers were painted LOL. The paint job cost him $1200. Really sucks because the playfield and plastics are pretty nice. Gonna have to find the right buyer!

#4095 16 days ago

I mean the paint job isn’t Terrible
For 1200 it is

What was the story or goal here.

Looks like they turned it into their own personal canvas. Next time just go to the art store.

If your gonna pay that much at least do it original !!!

At first I thought, “why would anyone change the original”, but it looked ok so who are we to say. But When I zoom in on the painted cabinet, it actually looks pretty poorly done! So it’s a very odd piece of art done in a pretty poor way.

Quoted from rollinover:

The art kinda matched some paintings and things he had in his garage. Also he seemed very well off so he probably wipes his ass with $1200

Yeah it's got visible brushstrokes all over it, feels uneven, etc. It's weird because whatever white they used for the back and head frame feels pretty smooth. If the rest of the game was nice and smooth it wouldnt be too bad.
