Played an IO Moon today. 1 of six and 1 of two in the US.

#502 2 years ago

other than homebrew/reskins, Pinball Circus is likely it. i did get to see Predator at the NW Pinball and Arcade Show but it wasn't functioning well enough for anyone to play it (same with the original Magic Girl cab a few years later.)

i have been lucky enough to play some great low-production number games like Defender, Warlok, Joust, Cyclopes, original run TBL and Aliens, Time Fantasy, Andromeda, Captain Hook...

Just got a Captain Hook! One of the best Game
Plan’s made. Love the crap out of it

#505 2 years ago

I heard the Fun house 2.0 Kit is gonna be amazing

Quoted from Mopar:

I have to believe this one here.
While going through it, there were indications
that it very likely never hit production..

Great Game, used to own one.

Pinball Circus the vertical playing game, one of 2 or 3. Prob 20 years ago at Expo when new games were under 3k. I think it was Gene Cunninghams. Someone offered him 10k and he laughed.

I wonder how many of us have played the same Pinball Circus.

2005 Pinball Expo. Steve Kordek's. He turned down a $50K offer for it.

Quoted from jp1985:

I wonder how many of us have played the same Pinball Circus.

I'd say all of us. The one at Expo was at my Spring Pinball Circus 2006 and then in August was taken to the Pinball Hall of Fame.

As far as I know, the other known existing one ( missing the stainless steel helix ) has never been available to others to play. Owned by Nicastro of Williams.

Rumours also tell about a third machine in Germany.
It might be shipped to the German NOVA in Hamburg. NOVA was the general distributor. IPDB says, it was in Hamburg but send back, rumours say: Not send back , officially destroyed, still in a private collectors hand.
If it is in the collectors hand I guess, he has more than 700 machines in his collection and a "holy gameroom" were the Pinball Circus is expected.
Maybe one day we will now .....

I think you are correct . The guy who sells the playfield protectors in Germany his friend is a insane collector and I believe he has it. He also have other prototypes that had to be destroyed but still there…

I played a GNR with a perfect playfield the other day

etc...... (i'm sure there's many more) for being in the hobby for such a relatively short time i'm thankful for what i've seen and played. some of the private collectors who have been generous enough to share their treasures with me are beyond my ability to thank. those who've brought rare pins to shows also deserve a hearty pat on the back and a round on the house. in times where it's hard to find something to be positive about, these people have brightened at least one life

#515 2 years ago

Got back from INDISC last week and they have some rare machines that I played.

The rarest one that I have played had to have been at PHOF.

#527 10 months ago

Anyone looking to play a couple rare games in New England... Swing by the Western Mass Pinball Club when we are open...put some time on Asteroid Annie, Time Fantasy and a few others!

#531 10 months ago

Oh my mistake! Ever rarer then!

Even bigger thanks to Lloyd for having it available to play!

#532 10 months ago

IPB remake Big Bang Bar #16.
Theatre of Magic proto (with magic post).

Had a chance to buy a Captain Hook, but the seller didn't have the big key to the padlock on the side of the cab.
I passed because of too much risk in not being able to open the cabinet if something breaks or a ball gets stuck.

#533 10 months ago

a baywatch with no legs.

#534 10 months ago
Quoted from DanQverymuch:

When I get my Williams Roto working, that will be the one!

Wow, 5 years later and I still haven't gotten it going! Haven’t even gotten around to trying...

At least I can take solace in the fact that no one else has played it either! (Mine is the only one on Pinside, and there is only one other listed on ipsnd.)

What's the rarest? Funhouse? Is so, that's probably my answer to the original question. I guess my CC Exhibition is pretty rare. IPDB says 147 made, probably not many left.

Quoted from jaytrem:

I don't think I ever heard of Exhibition. I myself didn't see it listed on IPDB.
I wouldn't mind seeing a couple pics..
Yes. I'd have to say Fun House is my rarest that I have and/or played.
951 Hyde Parks are listed on IPDB, but I'm pretty much positive that's
mostly the Italian version.
Only know of one other U.S. version, and that's also a sample game..

Oops, sorry, that's supposed to be Exposition. Not sure if I got auto-corrected or typed it wrong.

Thanks, still needs some work one the rails and legs. Somebody put a think coat of something on them, they're a bit of a mess now. Current big project is painting the 50/50 cabinet, but I'll hopefully find some time to work this also.

#545 10 months ago

Joust probably.

#546 10 months ago

Bally Wizard.

What? So I don’t get out much

Been fortunate enough to go to the Ann Arbor VFW.

Get there one day, nothing lasts forever.

#547 10 months ago

Data East Tommy PROTOTYPE tonight at the Ann Arbor pinball museum. The production model is right next to it.

Probably the early version of JJP POTC with the 3 spinning discs.
