Nice Stingray.
Hard to find a decent one.

Thanks. Mine isn’t the best either. It’s presentable but it has a good amount of wear and touch ups.

Sealed my ali backglass before it could get any worse.

My Ali glass was sooooo bad. I sealed it until I could get a new one. Never seen triple thick bleed ink like this...

Should have done a mist coat first....

Did. Glass was ruined anyways. The bleeding on the back didn’t affect the horrendous front that much

Just thought it was interesting. All the glasses I’ve sealed I’d never seen that before.

Wow... It just did not like the OEM inks... what a severe reaction...

What is this relay for in my ali? I'm assuming its factory.

Factory. Galaxy uses one too. I'm sure that there are others.

Out by the cape.

#1723 4 months ago

Outrageous!

#1724 4 months ago

The lady who owned it brought it out here from Chicago. She bought it off a neighbor there years and years ago. Wish I knew who that neighbor was.

#1725 4 months ago

I got all kinds o questions. Ever play one prior? How’d you find out the game was available...

#1726 4 months ago
Quoted from Xtraball:

Never played one before. (Who has?). It’s a crazy piece of history as I look at it. Still driving back with it. I’ll have to dive deeper on gameolay but my initial take is sorta like gottlieb doing the three back street level games this is sterns throwback to the wacky flipperless/real early EMs. It’s pretty much just a nudging game.

I think it’ll be a nice addition to The Sanctum for fun dollar games. So it’ll be in the public for everyone to play.

#1727 4 months ago

That’s awesome, good for you! Talk about collecting ALL the Stern solid states!

#1728 4 months ago

I have listed for sale the two Parts Catalog published by Stern at the end of the 70's and at the beginning of the 80's:

Wonder how many of the 6 still exist?

Luckily this one is preserved beautifully.

Good Question. The pics on Pinside Gallery had to come from somewhere. Pinball Owners website has none.

I’ll get new pictures for ipdb and such and a rom dump once I get this together and cleaned a little but it’s not going to take much.

Yes. Magnet randomly whips the ball around when it rolls over it.

Congratulations on finding the Cue!!

Could you post a video on Facebook or you tube once you get it running?

That is utterly incredible! This is one of those “completely whacky” novelty game designs that I am extremely eager to play!! And thank you for preserving the ROMs!

Side note, since I’m here:
I am in need of more references for my Orbitor 1 build. Is there anyone would could possibly take high quality pictures of metal supports that the flippers mount to? Even better if you’re not in a hurry, I could borrow one of the metal supports and have my metal fabricator build extras, since apparently they are non-existent.

Quoted from Mitch:

Yeah. I’ll get a stream of it at some point. Next couple weeks are extremely busy with pintastic and rubbing the Stern Pro circuit event there.

Back on the road to get some more classic sterns!

Nicely done for a 100% repaint.

Thanks. Took quite a bit of time, but seemed worth it to me. It's a pretty complicated playfield for an early machine.

Is all of the wiring as clean looking as that J-1 connector wiring you are holding up?

Nice pickup. I played Cue many years ago. It really does have a lot in common with late 1940s early flipper games. I didn't find it to be much fun to play as there aren't any shots to hit. When the ball lands on the flipper you just send it back up to the top again, thats it. Only one pop bumper to create any action and that is all the way at the bottom of the playfield. I don't think it would be a good location game because the novelty wears off quick. Multi player dollar games might be the only way to go.

Yup. I played one when the game first showed up at a pinball show.
That was about 1991ish. At that time, it was believe to be one of three made.

Wow, that CUE is a real piece of history. Nice find!

Yup. Inside stuff squeaky clean.

Driving back with today’s haul now. Ive been on the road pretty much 23 hours straight at the moment. Had a 4 hour nap stop at home on between.

I see a Catacomb in your SUV. I know that green color from anywhere. What kind of shape is that in?

And .....how come these kinds of package deals never happen out here on the prairie? Where the buffalo used to roam.
