    Spoiler alert in the link below: the #1 fish tank is a pinball machine fish tank. . .a whole new take on flippers.

    This thread is dedicated to pinball oddities and repurposed pinball machines. I've seen pinball stereo racks, bookcases, coffins and, of course, cocktail tables. What else is out there?

    The guy who bought my Galaxy Rangers playfield recently said he was making a coffee table out of it. There was one already made with this title, with a pic below - better woodworking than I am capable of. There's an infamous Pinball Wizard car and Stingray aquarium from the television show "Tanked"

    The Stingray photo is the same in the video clip. I suppose that one pinball fish tank in the world is enough. One thing is certain, if I am reincarnated as a fish, I know where I want to live.

    I’d love to have that coffee table in my living room!

    That's what they did to a king and a queen. Can you imagine the fate of a lowly Jack's Open?

    Clearly, this pinball parlour's proprietor subscribes to the Marie Antoinette style set-up. Gasp.

    "One of my taxidermy mice," you say? Does that mean that you have more such mice playing shadow box pinball?

    Yes! Since you asked, here are some pictures. Taxi, Whirlwind, and working on another Taxi. I sold the Metallica one, but USPS tore it up in shipping so I can't do that again... Refunded the buyer 100%.
    All have sound and lights like the Metallica one. I own a Taxi and Whirlwind so the audio is me playing. I think it's unique. I wasn't sure if anyone else would feel the same.
