I wonder if those are the coolest mods there is and if he made them all himself.

All those mods....and no LED's in the game apart from the crappy ones in the mods WTF.

I hate to think of the absolute nightmare all those damn things would cause if you had something go wrong, goodluck.

This what happens when you leave your pin parked to long, in an unsecured location, "Some one will steal the legs off of it!"

Like it or not, it is an impressive amount of work. Sheesh.

That's serious mod-overkill, but i do like it! (but remove the glow-in-the-dark-stars)

#409 3 years ago

Space Jam anyone

The door under the VUK on the lower right is kind of neat. I couldn't figure out The Doors connection, it's him stretching the whole "door" concept, which is dumb. If anything, wouldn't you put golden earring on it?

If anyone wants some of those sweet mods, he actually lists his phone number at the 4 minute mark

Quoted from scottslash:

I would be more impressed if he used his time fixing the credit dot.

He said it took him 7 hours to install Robby the robot but he'll tell you how to do it for $50 because it is 6 wires. Now he has a Robby saying quote from Forbidden Planet in a Twilight zone. And how many other things that have nothing to do with TZ.

The stick on glowing stars are someone a little kid would do. I want to see a video of the day he tries to sell it.

Jim Morrison has been dead for 50 years, so let's put him all over a Twilight Zone pinball machine.

Makes sense.

Is there a playfield under all that crap?

#414 3 years ago
Quoted from Otaku:

Working rare/very desirable 1963 Bally Star Jet painted over original cabinet paint with black paint, "F*CK", "SH*T", and "P*SS" by GRC/Gameroom Collectibles and cabinet destroyed with a sledge to be parted out.
I ended up picking up the all of the pieces to make it whole again as it didn't deserve to die and finally getting to making some stencils. Only 1,000 made. Only around 26 (including mine, this one) of these accounted for as still alive on the internet so far.
All of the head parts were cut from the harness, only the bottom board remained intact.

I liked the cabinet mod here. Screams of teenage angst.

What's that I hear? It sounds like Pat Lawlor quietly sobbing.

Wow, I'd pay $50 to get that 7 minutes of my life back (which is a steal because anywhere else it's $200).

Ouch, my pf has wear. Guessing they put mylar down sometime later in its life because some of the insert art has cracks in it, but its mint compared to that.

#420 3 years ago
Quoted from oldskool1969:

A well seasoned RADICAL any one.

If anyone ever needed proof that factory mylar was a really good idea...

#421 3 years ago

Fire on this fireball

Wow...that sure is crispy

Quoted from dgoett:

I don't even know where to start on this one. I am curious how he hooked up Robbie the robot to the game and if its actually going throught the Williams speakers. Can someone else give him a call and find out? I just can't bring mysel to the 40 minute plus conversation i know this guy is going to spit out. 734-556-2588.

re-use of some pinball playfield glass:

I'm really surprised no one posted the holy grail of pinball depression! 1975's "Tommy." The scene where everyone just decides they're going to smash and burn hundreds of classic games...

Darn, hoped they used special effects miniature shots for that scene..but apparently not.

Quoted from Star_Gazer:

Keep in mind that back then, those games were considered trash that they had to pay to get rid of - there were no "pinball collectors" around to provide a secondary market for machines. Pinball collecting is a young hobby.

Probably be able to buff that out.

Probably just a fuse.

#431 3 years ago
Quoted from Star_Gazer:

People on craigslist be like "RARE Firepower in MINT Condition! Just has a few burnt out bulbs. Could use some wax. 3K FIRM. If your offer is less, don't even bother contacting me. I've seen other Firepowers go for almost 5K. This is a deal!"

#432 3 years ago
Quoted from Star_Gazer:

Use Novus 2. But be careful, don't use Magic Eraser, too abrasive and will ruin the finish.

#433 3 years ago
Quoted from Star_Gazer:

Crispy!

#434 3 years ago

Having to restore this pos , I did restore it but that's another story.

I need better pics of the shooter lane before I decide. ...

Wouldn't that be something if it had a Triple X scorecard?

This is what can happen when you overfuse a machine.....

Wow. That is impressive.

It looks like it was left to burn for a good amount of time since the backbox is actually charred.

Oh! Poor Bullsie! Seeing those melted ramps breaks my heart.

Okay, I literally LOL'd at this.

#445 3 years ago

This is the version with the real "Boris Bomb" mod. Adds $1k to the value.

#446 3 years ago

My mouth dropped when Lloyd posted that on facebook.

#447 3 years ago

Not really worth saving. Doable yes, but 500 for that seems like a rip.

Bought this roadshow, look at how warped everything is, picking it up tonight.
Figured it would be a nice project.
Good title cheapo.
