    Is there a list somewhere on what EM's might be at this year's swap meet?

    #2 3 years ago

    No, there is not. I receive all the freeplay registrations and respond to those who register games. Although I have a running list, we have learned that there are no guarantees how many of those exact titles will actually show up. Many folks change up, due to sales or preference. What I can say is there will be a "pile" of ems in the freeplay area, and the list will continue to grow right up until show time.

    This is a somewhat loose list of some of the pinballs (all types included) that people may be bringing. It's being edited to add games as they are posted. This is likely just a tiny fraction of what's going to be brought. If you've never been to the Allentown show, it's THE place for flea market EMs and lots of great deals set up inside as well. I hope this show lives up to it's legacy.

    While I'm at it, I'm going to hijack this thread and start a roll call. Remember to wear your Pinside badge! I have mine printed already and marked "EM sub-forum". Any ideas for where/when we could have a meet and greet? I'll be there all three days.
    So who's going?

    #4 3 years ago

    I'll plan on being there Friday or Sat or both Days. Save me a name tag JR.

    #5 3 years ago

    Thank you for the update!

    #6 3 years ago

    Howard, Bob and I will get there Thursday and act like vendors

    #7 3 years ago

    Oh I'll be there with JR, his brother , and all the regular EM nuts around 1 pm Thursday and heading out Sunday first thing .

    I'm bringing my Ship Ahoy And yes it's a keeper game, but it'll be FS.

    Bring the neptune!

    Quoted from pinhead52:

    I actually bought that with the Free Fall as a package deal. Sorry it's staying home , it is a collector quality example in my honest opinion. 4 pins going into the trailer and I hope only one going home

    image_(resized).jpg

    #12 3 years ago

    Yes, Neptune is certainly a keeper. I feel kindda bad taking up all the room in your trailer

    Hey for a change of pace put it in Novelty mode. I love hearing the knocker fire five times. 1.8M is my best score.

    #13 3 years ago

    I'll be at Pinfest again this year. Thursday thru Saturday. Bringing my Spanish Eyes to (hopefully) sell. I repainted the cab to spec...love the game, but I'm outta room. I won't wear a name badge--just check the line at Billy's Pretzel Wraps in the Farmers Market. I'll be there.

    Nope. It wasn't him.

    #15 3 years ago

    So if a Texan living on the West Coast wanted to come to this amazing show sometime, could I hook up with you EM guys? Would love to meet some Pinsiders and have someone who knows Pinfest kinda show me the ropes there. Allentown is on my pinball bucket-list to do someday. Maybe in the next year or two!

    #16 3 years ago

    Yea come on out, JR knows everybody. Half the fun is just standing around talking with new and old friends.

    And the other half is picking thru the flea market stuff!

    They're really good but those pretzel wraps with the steak & cheese are addicting . I also ate a donut shaped like a pretzel , washed it down with a Yeungling .

    BTW - Thanks for the reminder to bring a badge. I discovered that there is a badge maker in the my-pinside portion of the website. Wasn't aware of this until recently:

    I'm posting this for my brother who isn't a Pinsider:
    "I will be bringing a Gottlieb's "North Star" to the show for free play and for sale. Plays 100%. Very nice playfield, clean inside, good cabinet and metal, ok backglass sealed with some minor touch-ups. Price will be posted at the show."

    #45 3 years ago

    Man...it's a good thing I'm not going! Just was looking thru the list: 1965 Midway Mystery Score pitch and bat and a 1963 Midway Raceway! NICE! My minivan is not big enough for all the toys I see!

    Well this is a different Pinfest 2016 held at Caves Beach on the Central Coast of eastern Australia & held right now 24-25 Sept 16. Event organised by the Newcastle Pinball Assn with proceeds going to needy charities.

    I attended yesterday a wonderfully organised event, at a terrific location & featuring over 50 machines with around 12 EMs (all operational). Great to talk with fellow pinheads. The Midway prototype Mystery Score was quite fascinating & said to be one of only three produced.

    Here are some pics.
