Quoted from kovalski3:
Im looking for any Williams Reverse wedgeheads, especially Heat wave or Beat the Clock. I am also interested in any EM arcade games. If you have anything that you can bring to the show, PM me.
Like this? PM incoming.
Quoted from bluespin:
You’re transitioning from EMs to solid state games, and your first choice was a Gottlieb 80 series game? You’re very brave.
I'd not say transition, we have several EM's we love and are keeping.
More like widening the lineup. Have a few arcade games too.
Quoted from JodyG:
80B's are pretty simple machines at the end of the day. Do a few key preventative issues, and they stay pretty sound. I'd much rather troubleshoot an 80B boardset over another System 11B. I invented new swear words for the last 11B basket case I had. FWIW, Gold Wings was my first pin, and I've bought and sold a couple dozen games since then... But GW still has a solid place in my home.
Quoted from Drano:
Still debating what to bring.
I just ended up with a 2nd Seawitch through some trades. If I can get it 100% for free play in time, I could bring this beauty down.
I played one for the first time at the show in Massachusetts last year, it was great fun!
Quoted from arcademojo:
Used - shows wear, needs some work “Buck Rogers for sale: $975.
Lots of upgrades and bulletproofing done. Plays great. Fresh shop job.
Buck Rogers just looks like a cool looking game to me, the backglass is epic. Every time I check out a gameplay video though it leaves me cool. Perhaps there will be one to try at Allentown and I'll change my mind.
Quoted from Agent_Hero:
A bullet-proofed game sub 1k? With even a slight bit of interest it'd be worth grabbing. I think Buck Rodgers looks like a fun pin.
If I don't like the gameplay or the way it sounds the price is immaterial, it will just sit unused in the lineup of which I have little space for filler machines. I have odd taste in pins, hands on trial is best. Gold Wings I think is a riot, but I thought Abra Ca Dabra was "meh" when I tried one.
There are two pins now sitting in the workshop, one of which (Grand Tour) I'm going to try and stencil and bring to the Mass show in June. It is pretty much still parked in the same spot Colson saw it hanging out a year or two ago waiting. I think the paint is dry by now.
Quoted from movingpictures:
Considering bringing a nice Medusa if a deal is made in advance.

- Fully working and operational [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
That thing looks sweet!
Quoted from rvalkenburg:
Bringing this to Allentown and have no plans on bringing it home with me, so lets make a deal. Game plays great, has a few things that could still be done, like new flipper mechs, but price will reflect that. Looking for $1800, let's make a deal and I will slide it out of my truck into yours.
Watch the video for a full overview of the machine and work done.
Thanks for reminding me, just added "Data East speaker grill" to my shopping list.
Quoted from Whridlsoncestood:
Nope. No issues. Games secured just fine. My GTi is a workhorse. Was hauling 4 games with it the other day.
We hauled a Time Machine in a Subaru last week, had to grease it up practically to get it to fit! disconnected the hinges and slid the head forward a few inches to get enough clearance.
I wanted to give thanks to everyone who brought games- Fireball, Alien Star and Bad Cats were our clear favorites.
Alien Star was great fun; fast flowing playfield. I thought Fireball was also great, my wife didn't think so even though she beat my score on that one, had a few bad skips on the ball but thats how it goes.
Quoted from SilverUnicorn:
Glad you enjoyed the Bad Cats (I brought that). Unfortunately mine could only be there on Friday, but it got 204 plays in one day! With the exception of the seafood wheel not always spinning, it held up well (as far as I know).
Thanks to ALL who make this show happen. Ivan, the staff, the vendors, and the people who bring gamees!
I did notice the wheel not spinning once or twice but it did not detract much from the game. It was fast and fun, the call outs and sounds had my wife in stitches. The nod was given if I should happen to find one for our collection which is rapidly growing.. again.
It was a popular game, a few times we circled back around to wait till people were done playing it. There was lots of other games to try out!
