Quoted from Rondogg:

WMS Indiana Jones will secure his stardom forever. Wouldn't even sign the translight at Pintastic 2016 he loves the art so much.

This was a joke guys. Ronndog just forgot his stupid fuckin smiley face. That sfsf lets all the pleebs know.

Who the hell is that guy?^^^^^^^^^^^And why his pic in here with all these other sweet Steve Ritchie pics?

#62 2 years ago

And the guy is using gene Simmons trademark horns. The nerve of some people.

#63 2 years ago

Ok it's a loose analogy but still. If I only had a Hyperball.

Really though I can't wait to see some pics of Ritchie hamming it up on Star Wars. Good times to be a pinball player.

#64 2 years ago

I like that the wife of mrgone always says "Hi, Practicalsteve not Steve Ritchie!"

Lyman showed up a little later and he pointed out a few ideas he had for some new game play features.

I remember playing in a pickup basketball league in the mid 90's with Steve and Mark. They were pretty good.

When I saw the 1st pic I thought it was that douche that cusses out girls and plays 4 player games. Then I saw the 2nd pic. Did you atleast shake his hand Doc?

My fave designer of all time...The King!!

#83 2 years ago

The King's talent doesn't stop with pinball. Ran into him years ago down South. He didn't speak much but sure could play that banjo. Here he is in deep thought - probably thinking how cool a kickback in the outlane would be.

#84 2 years ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

Did you at least shake his hand Doc?

Yes I did. He was a great guy and I was thrilled to chat with him a few minutes about the game and his experience doing all the call outs. I also spent a good 20 minutes with Burt as he filmed me with his cell phone explaining the rules and how the shots worked. Burt has a Batman66 at home but didn't know understand the rules and modes. He said his wife payed it more than him so he wanted to film me explaining to him so he and his wife could re-watch it later at home. I was surprised Adam didn't have his own Batman66. He made a comment to his "handler" about contacting Stern and getting a game. Not sure if he ever got it or not.

Not only is Steve a great pinball designer he also has an eclectic taste in motor vehicles. I was very impressed to see him tooling around in this at a recent pinball show.

"Fast enough MothaF%&@$*????" Steve squeezes a little more speed by flame polishing the ramps.

I feel partially responsible for the troubled life he had after his boy adventurer days.

Excellent stuff! Speaking of Sabbath I just bought Never Say Die on record and it is an absolutely amazing price of art

#95 2 years ago
Quoted from Azmodeus:

He is without a doubt one of our living legends. I hope he knows it.

A few years ago he didn't know it.
I sent him an email about 3 or 4 years ago about a pin I designed and how I love his work. I said I was a big fan and his work was a big inspiration for me. He responded that he was very impressed for receiving a fan letter and that he wasn't used to have fans.
I replied back saying he has a huge fan base.

Some of our famous friends who have made us pinball our whole lives will be at California extreme this year.

I plan on making it a point to be say hello to Steve Ritchie. And everyone else.

I really want Steve Ritchie to wonder what the hell happened when he comes to California.

In a good way. This will require your help too.


#97 2 years ago

Had the pleasure of traveling with Steve on a few road trips. My dog Hopscotch wouldn't leave his lap.

After pondering California extreme next week and what exactly kind of stunt I would pull with Steve Ritchie. I settled on giving him a book.

I read a lot. Now which book...
