Quoted from Whysnow:

I offered to drive one down from Spooky and leave it with you (I have a full van on the way back but space on the way there). LMK

...another reason I think Hilton is awesome

Anyone need any INVISIGLASS ?

Once again I will be taking pre-orders - I will have it boxed and bring it to the show. Discounts for orders of 3 or more. Standard and Wide. Must be prepaid and ordered before show - I do not bring any extra.

Please email Sales@PinballSTAR.com what you need and I will price it up for you. Do not post here or PM on Pinside as I don't see those as quickly as I would an email.

What is the pinfest hotel rate for Comfort Inn?

Quoted from wolftownjeff:

What is the pinfest hotel rate for Comfort Inn?

I just talked with them this week. The rate they are offering is 119.00. We are trying to update our site but are having some issues with their link. It should be worked out early next week. Anyone who may have booked with them will probably get their rate adjusted.

I assume he meant Comfort Suites since thats what we have on our lodging page. Don't know anything about Comfort Inn.

My pal Kyle and I will be bringing this Solar City retheme called "Speed City" based on our local record store. Please give it a try at the show and let us know what you think. (For what it's worth, he did all the cosmetics. I just make it function properly.)

That is awesome I am so excited to see this and play it at the show. For all of us that hope to do a re-theme one day this is very inspiring. Thanks Again for giving the heads up! You Canadian guys that come down for the show are some of my favorites to run into. I always see you speaking french and drinking beer in the parking lot. You are the MOST courteous and welcoming when I come up to say hi and shake your hand! Does anyone else agree?!?!

Looks great!

Is there any art on the pop bumper caps? Hard to tell from lighting. If they don't, why not some 45rpm-inspired artwork atop them? Black outer body with a paper label bumper cap.

Great work guys! Is that you and Mike on the top left plastic? I see Julie there too. Any other local "celebrities"?

I don't know if devil horns are appropriate for a punk theme though

#516 1 year ago

Speed City looks very cool and well done. I'll be sure to play it.

Looking for a nice and working 1971 Gottlieb Astro at a resonable price. I have a Gottlieb snow derby (major project) and Bally Sea Ray (needs a little bit of typical fixing and cleaning but works and plays). We still have that 1949 Gottlieb Basketball wood rail too. PM me if ur interested in working out a trade deal for these game(s) and an Astro or nice wedgehead(s). I hope to bring at least 2/3 of them to the show depending of vehicle space. We'll be there on Friday. Booth 14 in the flea market.

The vendors coming to the show page has been updated as well as the Vendor floor plan. Please remember to refresh your page. We have a bunch of new vendors this year. Those with websites have been linked.

There are a few spots still available if anyone is looking for a vendor spot.

What happened to Starship Fantasy???

Quoted from wolftownjeff:

The problem is that there is nothing for them to goto before or after this show. They basically have to come all the way over here and then back home. Its an travel expense issue.

That's pretty much the same place you were last year, right? Seemed like a good spot if you ask me

#543 1 year ago

I wouldn’t mind taking back a decent shape 2-player (fighting game era) cab. Non-Working preferable

I will be at the show the whole time. I will be offering free use of my pub update cards for pinball 2000. I have newer versions than were produced for pc updates!
Revenge from mars!
Version 1.8 (requires ram update)
Version 1.6
Star Wars episode 1
Version 1.5
I have a couple old versions also.
Not sure why you would want to go backwards though.
I hope to have my spare fully populated rfm playfied and spare start button for sale. I plan to display it in my game. If you buy it, I can pop mine in for others to play!
