The DE topic made me think about what other rare or prototype pinball stuff myself or what other's might have laying around. So lets see your rare stuff...

Cactus Jacks whitewood, proto type playfield. Picked this up a few years back from Brian Bannon who purchased it from TPR. JohnDSCF1229.JPGDSCF1229.JPG

I have a game plan cyclopes, pretty rare.

That Bigfoot backglass is awesome.What's the story on that one.According to local legend there was a Bigfoot sighting on my property back in 1971.Obviously I would love a repro of that.So cool.

#6 4 years ago

All the Bigfoot info is on the IPDB. Plus there is some pics of my glass on there too that Duncan Brown took. I've owned it for about the last 14 years I think.

I have one of the six artboards that were made for Whoa Nellie. Looks just like the playfields, but isnt drilled out. It makes a nice piece of art for the gameroom, and of course was a bit more rare before they decided to make more pins. It certainlh is a conversation starter when people actually look at it closer.

#10 4 years ago

Wow, great stuff so far....keep them pictures coming. Here's a poster that I had on the walls for a while and this ORIGINAL prototype backglass I still have but the game is long gone.

I don't have anything cool like this (unless a Tron Legacy un-used and still sealed with the Disney sticker 35mm trailer reel counts as "pinball related"), but my Jackbot does have some extremely early code that does not seem to be available anywhere at the moment. Gotta check the exact version when I get home....and if someone in Dallas wants to rip the code version and upload it to IPDB before I get rid of the game... it should be done. =P

Back when pinball actually had pins, a 1932 Gottlieb Play-Boy.

I have never seen another one with an original stand. I actually thought the stand was a one-off made by an owner but I saw one listed as an option in an old advertising flier and realized that it was original.

Very cool Play-boy topper. I found on of those at an auction in Indiana about eight years ago I'm guessing and put it on my Bally game, which was perfect since I collect toppers too.

I have a NM, what is proto about this PF, I can't tell the difference from mine?

#23 4 years ago

Too paranoid to unfold the thing for photos, but I have an original schematic set for Williams System 2, from the solid state version of Aztek. Not sure if it's 100% complete or not, but I do have sheets 1-8.

#24 4 years ago

Different colors for some of the screens. I think a few insert differences also. Pf is marked as smpl 007, so i assume there are at least a few others out there.

#25 4 years ago

I have only 2 items that "might" be considered rare. A complete and beautiful home version playfield of The Brown Dirt Cowboy, it's only problem is that the inserts are slightly cupped. No wear at all on pf and the colors just pop. #2 is a Wirco plastic backglass for Big Top, that's in beautiful shape also. Anyone know anything about these? Rare? Not so rare?

Saving this one for a rainy day. I had two in the crate and sold one and a NOS playfield to a very nice fella in France a few years back.

Cool thread very excited to see what pops up, and John how have you not posted pictures of your King Kong?

#37 4 years ago

Cool stuff

#38 4 years ago

I was trying to stay away from the entire games and focus more on the stuff that people may not know even exist. I've got pics of so much more that I've tried to post but I've always had difficulties posting pictures on Pinside, its hit or miss for some reason...?

I have one with an original stand too, but yours looks much nicer.

#40 4 years ago

Some neat stuff!

I'll add a couple photos...

Proto Indy 500 car - the one in the foreground that is pinkish red. This is 1 of 2. I thought it was 1 of 1, til I saw one in a prototype game..

i500_proto_car.jpg

Prototype WCS flipper bats I got from John Popadiuk. Apparently, too brittle to put in a game.. but a neat idea!

Hans,
Yes... there seem to be 8 schematic sheets (5 smaller and 2 larger) for the Aztec SS Proto.
There's also a full 8.5' x 2' overall wiring diagram, as well as a Solid State manual.
Oh yeah... and the game.

I got my paperwork separately from the machine... the Williams envelope they were in asks "Lou" to "return the old controller by UPS" to Al Gregg and to insure it for $500.00.
(I unfolded my originals, had professionally scanned, and then now have them rolled in a heavy-duty tube instead of re-folding.)

I also found out last year, that Williams also appears to have used this "System 2" in at least one prototyped Argosy. (so I'm told)

Games pictured, Rocky 3 movie backglass, Blue/red shield set Joust (like the flyer), Eclipse (in original purple cabinet, not a kit).

Games with less than 1000 production not pictured, Alice in Wonderland, Asteroid Annie and the Aliens, Dimension, Flying Trapeze, Goin' Nuts, Incredible Hulk (System 80 version), Lite-A-Card, Lucky Hand, Mars, God of War (black cabinet), Punk!, Q*berts Quest, Solar City (solid state test piece), Star Race, Striker, Time Line (blue cabinet).

I couldn't get my hands on the System 2 Black Hole in France with 7 digit displays so I made my own.

I'm sure that there are many more games in my collection that had larger runs but are not that plentiful now, especially the woodrails.

I wan't one of those Rocky glasses so BAD!! Been looking for one ever since I bought the game at Gene's auction. Hey Steve, have you ever thought about actually putting it in the game? I think the connectors for the displays would have to be re done but it would be worth it.

Here's my bird house. I didn't build it but I did buy it off Ebay probably a dozen or more years ago.

Moving the displays isn't a big deal for me and I considered it at one time but decided not to, the glass looked like it didn't belong there when I held it up to my game. If you look at the movie, Rocky 3, the cabinet isn't like the Rocky cabinet anyway. I'm not even sure they used the same playfield as the production run. It looks like the same artwork they used on a Pink Panther cabinet.

Yeah lets keep it going. Here's one thats not too exciting though.....but yet I've never seen another one. An old can of pinball Mills wax with some still in it even. Pretty cool graphics on the front. This was probably when you could still buy car oil in a can........LOL.
