In the books, and a great time as usual.
Just some thoughts...
Most prices were on the moon and I didn't see any spacesuits. With the exception of the back right corner (Butch and Martian) I don't believe there were nearly as many sold pins as years past, at 3:30 Saturday, there was definitely no vibe of it in the free play area anyways.
There was a very cool Rock Makers EM I was crawling all over with a friend and talking to the seller about it, making an offer on it. Out of nowhere, there was a random guy that came and stuck his nose all up in it while we were looking it over, even started plugging it in and playing it. That was just rude.
Iron Maiden (first plays) Is a blast in a box, so fun.
Nightmare Before Christmas was a treat to play a ball on and see, it's really cool. He's got to get his flippers going better for that layout, but it's in a show environment, so he gets a pass.
I thought there was going to be a lot of good projects brought from a specific flea goer...that wasn't the case at all.
To the guy that gave me a large box filled with #44/555/89 new bulbs for $20, you're awesome.
To the outside guy in the flea market selling a 3k Taxi, telling me ''yeah but wait until you see the playfield'' as he's lifting the headbox up (the worst pop bumper wear I've personally seen and duct taped ramps) - Must have needed money for rocket fuel to get home...
The wings in the farmers market.
To the gas station I fueled up at just over the PA line that I randomly found and bought a cheap Getaway 2 from and brought for free play. (Yes this happened, and yes 5 full games will fit in a short bed Silverado-you make room)
The strong cat shit smell that lingered for hours Thursday night outside our block of rooms at the Ramada. (see pic? wtf)
The good friends and people I've associated with over the years, that stop and say kind things or shoot the breeze, including the OP of this thread, and Bob from Virginia, Kevin McHugh, Eric Bundy for the sweet deal on AC/DC Premium and his help, Brian (96stang) for all his endless help-pinball is family.
It was great to be back and always look forward to next year!
