Yup. Here are the linear-drive flipper mechs in this sample Atlantis.

Also, notice the flasher bulb in the insert! Some clown put 455s under all of them.

Most samples for Gottlieb games aren’t different than their production run, but Atlantis sure had a bunch of notable distinctions.

Quoted from jrpinball:

Interesting. Unfortunately, I've never gotten that intimate with a sample "Atlantis"!

i also believe other than the different sling plastic the sample plastics had a slightly different color. at first i thought they were faded, but some colors are darker and some lighter. production on the right samples on the left

If I didn't have a nice Buccaneer, I'd be all over that Barnacle Bill.

Here's a Big Daddy in Ky. that looks to be in decent original condition.

There was a pretty nice "Harvest" for sale at the York show. It didn't sell. I was tempted, but would prefer a "Hay-Ride". This one is a little rough, but it might go cheap. I believe there was one at the Allentown show either this past one, or last year's. I didn't pull the trigger on it, because the playfield wasn't very good on it. I'd like to find a nice one. It's such a great looking machine.

Those two are listed on CL as well. Was eyeballing the Riverboat but out of my range at the moment.

I lost the auction at $ 306. No worries. The buyer/flipper has it relisted now at $ 1,100 OBO.

I was out around $200-$250, thought it was a little on the rough side. $1100 huh? Good luck with that.

#5612 17 days ago

Yeah, I screwed it up and put in the opening bid at $ 50 rather than take the $ 200 BIN. I did this after a quick check that showed it was gonna be a 22 hour round trip to pick it up. I figured that by the time the listing ended, I would have either moved on or warmed up to the idea of a crazy road trip.

Why does all the good stuff seems to be up in your neck of the woods ? Anything good always seems to be at least 4 hours away.

I would have taken the BIN in a heartbeat!

I'm not sure about "all good deals" being up here, second to last trip was from CT -> MD and most of my road trips seem to be 2-4 hours one way. The population density does seem to spawn more machines around here though, of course a large number hold no interest to me. And the same density also spawns a large number of competitors so it is all a wash.

Have to be quick and move at a moments notice if something pops up or it is gone... You would be surprised at the number of machines that pop up and are gone without a trace. Frankly I'm surprised that Hayride surfaced, been my experience that once purchased that is the last you see.

The thread title does say "nice looking"! Yeah, I've seen worse, but that's a parts game to most mortals.

You're gonna need a new playfield and an extreme devotion to bring this one back to life. That's just a start. Too far gone!

I was looking at that Gigi and this one caught my eye. I thought the description was pretty funny.

That has to be a repro backglass!

Possible it is original depending on how it was stored. The upper part of mine is just starting to delaminate which is why I sealed it right quick. The lower part is perfect. The controls on this one look well used to the point the anodizing on the shooter and loader is gone. PF looks nice though.

I think "Darts" has more lamps in it's head than any other game. I don't think I've ever seen one with a good glass. That one looks damn near perfect. Mine was really bad, but I used the Triple Thick and plastic wrap method to make it somewhat passable. Now I have a Shay repro for it. It's a very good copy.
