I've owned a lot of supposedly rare games over the years, many mentioned in this thread, but right now I guess TRON:LE at 400 units is the rarest.

I'll echo that many of the rare games were rare for a reason!

#258 3 years ago

Sharp shooter ii or maybe aztec (not sure how many of these were made?)

#259 3 years ago
Quoted from wizard_mode:

600 and 10,150, respectively. The production numbers are on IPDB.

Oh dang, I knew the SS2 was 600 but I thought I remembered the Aztec was unknown. So, sharp shooter ii it is for my rarest game!

Rare games I still have:
- Bally Bumper (probably many produced but not many survived)
- Gottlieb Majorettes
- Safecracker
- CC

games I've owned in the past:
- 3x Orbitor 1
- QBerts Quest
- diamondplated Rollergames

I don't really care how rare a game is, what matters most is how much fun it is to play

#269 3 years ago

VIZA WAR

Quoted from ForceFlow:

No idea how many of these were made.

I know of a collector in SoCal that has two of them,
but unique thing about his games is that the innards are purely electro-mechanical,
with exception of the digital scoring.

#270 3 years ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

Looks like your model, is missing the kick out holes that i have seen on some Viza WAR playfields.

#271 3 years ago

There's lots of guys describing weird rare stuff I've never heard of before. To that, I say, pics or it didn't happen!

Wow, that's interesting. I'd be interested to see photos of that.

Quoted from pinwiztom:

I actually have two playfields--one with the kick-out holes, and one without. Also two sets of different caps that say "war" on them. One red set, and one white with a red sunburst.

#273 3 years ago
Quoted from Bribo13:

mine is a 1949 Chicago Coin " Champion " pinball
There are no real production numbers but form all my reading and research 350 seems to be the agreed upon number.
Actually a fairly entertaining game to play for a few minutes.
A couple pics from the day I brought it home about 5 years ago , I have since gotten a repo back glass and cleaned it up.

P1020451_(resized).JPGP1020465_(resized).JPG

So, I wonder which sport the fellow on the backglass chose; football, or basketball?

#274 3 years ago

I had three viza wars at one time, might have held on to one, but it didn't look fun

#275 3 years ago

Currently the rarest I own is a nice original Defender (369). Previously I owned a Voltan (365) which I sold, since the restauration would have been too expensive... unfortunately my fingers are all thumbs which is in german ... "Ich habe zwei linke Hände" ("I am lefthanded, even with my right hand"). I would love to own a Voltan, but not at any cost.

A BBB was also in my stable, but each air ball hurt so much (it hurt me far more than the machine)... I couldn't stand it... so much money in just one machine... sold it.

My Luci might also be a rare machine. I don't know the number and actually it is kinda "only" another AC/DC Premíum.

But there is another rare beauty in my basement... a Monster Bash with a direct print cabinet, so there are no messed up original decals This machine got a NOS playfield approx. 5 years ago, so it is as original as it could be.

I have a lot of rare pins, but I would consider Apple Time Thunderman, and Inder Moonlight to be my rarest games.

Thungder man...is that a bounty hunter retheme? Had the gottlieb apron...very cool.

The ramp exits on that moon light are crazy! What does that just drain your ball when you hit a ramp? LOL

#278 3 years ago

Thunderman essentially is an original design to my understanding. That's Kurt Russel from Escape from LA, the kids are from young Sherlock Holmes.

The Moonlight is ramps actually return it to that outer lane that sweeps it back into the inlane by going across the outlane. Pretty wild really. Its a really fast transition.

It looks like an Arnold/Kurt hybrid to me, pretty funny.

Thats really cool. I see it now.

i like the art I moon light. Reminds me of IO moon for some reason.

#283 3 years ago

I have an Eros1, Andromeda and a NOS complete Apocalypse playfield. If I can ever get a doner, it will probably be the only one in the US.

#284 3 years ago

Do you have a matching backglass for that?

It is a partial "copycat" design, but TM is not a retheme or "kit". It was unique.

#286 3 years ago

Played a Kingpin yesterday (#1 of 9). Was blown away by the speed, flow, artwork and dots. Didn't realize Mark Ritchie was the designer.

Quoted from Gundam_Pilot_:

No. Why, do you know of one for sale? If I ever get it running, I will try and make a translite from the playfield image.

#292 3 years ago

Just picked up a Williams 'Vagabond'. 600 units produced. First game with a single drop target of the modern design, with the entire target going under the playfield. Should be making an appearance at CLE*PIN show this year once its cleaned up!

#293 3 years ago

How 'bout the "Engineering Sample" playfield for Safecracker?

This was the display playfield used at the factory during the production run for "where the heck does THIS go?" questions.

Hand-built (presumably) during the prototype series of games (surely

#294 3 years ago

Well i just got home (20 minutes ago) with a Cybernaut, only 900 units made.

#295 3 years ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

I have a acdc luci which apparently only 171 were produced and also a b@w cab congo which is pretty rare also

Quoted from whitey:

Acdc ( luci) ?

Quoted from frg:

My Luci might also be a rare machine. I don't know the number and actually it is kinda "only" another AC/DC Premíum.

Luci for me...was Family Guy before that, which is in the picture too
