Quoted from Dono:

Bally EM - Double Up Pin (No, not the bingo)
Not so close 2nd - EM Mata Hari

I had a Double-Up (only 55 made) years ago. Sold it to Herb Silvers. He restored it and sold it to an Asian collector for over 10 grand. Well over I believe.

It seems to me you already have one!

I got to play a Magic Girl. It died on the first ball so I never finished my game, but don't feel any loss.

Not surprised, considering it was a very loose interpretation of the word "play" anyway!

Ain't it nuts these are changing hands for $15-20K when you can't even play it?

If it was never playable, does it technically even qualify as a pinball machine?

Someday I'm going to own a Hercules. Perhaps.

maybe you should play it some more first before wanting one.

My little boy loves Hercules but I'm all honesty I struggled to make it through a game. It was neat because of the obvious but ehhhhhhh. lol

#363 2 years ago

I have played multiple Hercules, from on location in cedar pointe park Ohio in the 80s to now in several collections including banning.

I found everything just popping, and responsive, Makes a very big difference. It's hard to work on too. I don't even think I could personally remove the glass alone. DisAbled.

It's one of those games for me I think. I'll get one. I'll find the dang room.

is that a conversion, or did Bally get sued?

Some of you said Krull But that is a really, really, really terrible movie! Really terrible, one of the ones that is always brought up as a terrible movie.

Pins should never be made for bad movies, gives a bad vibe if I was playing it.

Some of the most enjoyable pins are based on bad or poor-performing movies. Congo, Shadow, Demo Man, BSD, The Flintstones, etc.

I liked Congo, all the diamonds! Michael Crichton is a great author and the book I am sure was better than the movie. But no way a bad one. May I say Plan 9 from Outer Space one of the worst and I have seen it by the way.

I didn't hate Congo and I loved Demolition Man, but neither are exactly cinematic master pieces.

Basically half of the 90s games were based on crap movies! Congo is an awful movie but man what an amazing game. I miss mine quite a bit

Krull is fawking awesome to play tho. Love it, and would buy one if I could afford it.

Oh yeah, I forgot....Cyclopes...I almost bought one but the guy wouldn't budge from his $2k asking price!

Should've paid the $2k.

I shot a 360 video of a Joust with marcdaddy at Chicago Pinball Expo 2017

It was a fun game to shoot in 360 video.

Played so many rare pins. Guess Critical Mass would be the rarest while it never went into production.

#388 9 months ago

All the pins at Clay's show in Ann Arbor, where rare pins are amazingly common. Somehow Daisy May really stuck out for its unique flipper arrangement.

Was that a Gottlieb prototype? Seems I remember some conversation about that pin.

#391 9 months ago

Does anyone know how the drop targets work on Loch Ness Monster? The 3 bank targets have 4 inserts and the 4 bank targets have 7.

Does it have 2 ball or 3 ball multiball? I see the upper left playfield has 2 solenoids in the spinner/ball lock area

I play TBL at another Pinsider's house where I picked up my Funhouse. The game was beautiful but had some mechanical issues.

Seems to me more and more of them have been showing up, not for sale but can't have it all. I hope to have the chance to play one someday, really a cool looking pin.
