The only game I would want 100% is the Gemini. Space Walk is cool so I won't knock it but 15-20k cool is just "meh" If I had 8k right now I would have turned that into 2-3 games like Kings and Queens, Buckaroo and another 60's title.

Wow wish I was closer on that one. Although, that "missing plunger, right flipper plunges ball" part is kinda scary! Whats up with that?!?!?

Quoted from funtimewithdave:

That's normal for that game and a few others from that era. Depress right flipper button and ball launches out of the outhole up into playfield to start a game.......... No ball shooter on this one.

"turret"

#2256 5 years ago

Yes, turret is the correct term - thanks

#2257 5 years ago

Technically not really a "turret" shooter as it does not oscillate like Derby Day, Hayburners 2 and other true turret games.

#2258 5 years ago
Quoted from DennisDodel:

OK, Ball Shooter.

Quoted from DennisDodel:

Dennis is correct - it is not a turret. A turret rotates.

The Pinball Compendium (yellow cover) is also wrong - they call it a turret shooter.

As Ken said - ball shooter is the best we got unless someone can give us a better name.

#2260 5 years ago

Gtb. calls it an "Electric Center Shooter" on the flyer for the game. Sounds good to me.

#2261 5 years ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

Yow! This is some lineup if you like the rare ones.
ebay.com link » Four 1978 79 Columbia Pictures Gottlieb Em Pinball Machines Mega Rare

$11,100.00 w/ 35 bids as of 5/31/14 w/ reserve not hit so far.

I'm sure there is still a ways to go with that reserve.

Steve Young corrected me the other day too. I called my Big Hit a turret shooter and he said 'center shooter'.

#2263 5 years ago

Big Daddy is Back!

$299.00 start bid w/ no reserve!

It still does need someone to repaint that Cabinet though.

One of Brando's later great roles. He almost didn't do it. Many issues with Coppola.

#2266 5 years ago

Yea, but too bad it is only overpriced by $5000.00 IMO.

Yep, because it is listed by FUN.

#2279 5 years ago

It was at TPF - Really cool., but it was turned off. It went to around 6k at the auction but FUN bought it back. I'd love to have it but not for that money. It's been up on ebay ever since.

#2280 5 years ago

"A gilt edged winner" And now that I own one, I would have to agree.

And it is the rarer electromagnetic version.

#2282 5 years ago
Quoted from PMcGee:

And it is the rarer electromagnetic version.

The electromagnetic version is where you place a powerful magnet on top of the playfield glass and guide the ball into certain scoring positions/specials to achieve numerous replays.

#2283 5 years ago
Quoted from hoov:

The electromagnetic version is where you place a powerful magnet on top of the playfield glass and guide the ball into certain scoring positions/specials to achieve numerous replays.

Like magic! Thought maybe it had a Pinball Magic type wand mod that wasn't in the pictures. Abra. Ca Dabra.

Or no matter where you put it in your house, it will always point true north.

#2284 5 years ago
Quoted from hoov:

That's why original bingo balls are made of non-magnetic nickel.

Did you see the one Vic Camp just snagged? It looks like it just came out of the box!

#2286 5 years ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

Did you see the one Vic Camp just snagged? It looks like it just came out of the box!

Yes I did! Very nice! The one I just snagged is not to shabby either. Not a machine that I was really looking for until I saw it and played it in person. But set up properly, it is a fun player. 3 ball play on this one because it is not overly difficult, but that can keep you coming back for more. The backglass looks better to me lit up and in person than it did in pics. Very colorful.

#2287 5 years ago

A nice Shuffle Bowler.

$10.00 start bid w/ no reserve!

I wanted to play that machine so bad. I dont know how they expected it to sell if noone could test drive it

That pic of the playfield is no joker poker pf.

A Joker Poker with a T-2 playfield. Hmmm, I have both those machines. I may have to experiment.

#2291 5 years ago

Apparently Gypsy Queen is the new Mermaid. Who knew?

(Personally, I'm scratching my head on this one.)

#2292 5 years ago
Quoted from DirtFlipper:

It always helps to add a little decor when selling a pinball machine.

#2293 5 years ago

I hope not, I'd like a Gypsy Queen.

#2294 5 years ago
Quoted from AlexF:

I hope not, I'd like a Gypsy Queen.

It's usually a $1000 game (give or take), maybe $1500 for a very nice one. Truly puzzling.

#2295 5 years ago

Looks nice. Maybe the white lithium grease or the pinball girl pic add some value?

Well, it is essentially a Pin Rescue game, so I could see a bit higher price than normal but that is pretty significant.

#2296 5 years ago

Agree with everything you guy's have said about the Gypsy Queen. The high-end restorers like Russ seem to have a following of loyal buyers with $$$$$ that will pay more for a game like this. And then there's the "Anna factor" ???? Add to that a few people on ebay bidding against each other that really want a nice restored woodrail that looks good.........

I sold a pretty nice project Gypsy Queen to David Silverman for $600 about 6 or 7 years ago.

#2297 5 years ago

I still should have bought yours Dave, way back when. Still kicking myself. I wonder if David ended up selling it.

#2298 5 years ago
Quoted from AlexF:

Don't know if he sold it or not Alex. I think that game needed a repro bg even though the bg wasn't terrible.

#2299 5 years ago

Don't know how to post a link from an iPad, but the Big Brave ( actually Big Indian ) currently on eBay isn't getting much love...$122.50. Five days to go, I know, but still...
