    A buddy of mine just had a number of his pinball machines stolen. He is in El Dorado Hills, near Folsom, CA. Stolen were an Addams Family, Flight 2000, Incredible Hulk and the head of a Fireball. I wanted to post here in case they pop up for sale to locals.

    They were being stored in his garage at his apartment. I don't have much more detail at this time. The F2K was one of my old pins that I had sold to him.

    Bump - keep an eye out for these pins stolen near Folsom, CA - Addams Family, Flight 2000, the Incredible Hulk and Fireball head.

    Quoted from davidpizon:

    I realize this isn't much to go on. It's a long shot but...
    All of the machines have thumb locks.
    “The Addams Family
    Has clear plastic ramps instead of factory "smoke grey” like the cloud topper. The three magnets under the playfield each have an inline fuse holder added. Shooter rod knob is clear red plastic.

    “The Incredible Hulk”
    Contains a “Ni-Wumpf” CPU board instead of the standard factory board. I added green grounding wire with screw hole terminals across all boards including “chime” board. The "Extra Ball" insert is very saucered.

    “Flight 2000”
    My friend, Eric Strangeway, from whom I bought this machine from told me he wrote his initials and the date when it was serviced on the filter capacitor on the driver board.
    “Fireball” (head stolen)
    This has been repainted in newer brighter colors. The overspray from the original factory paint can still be seen if the head is opened. I still have the matching lower cabinet with a matching repaint job.

    Added 7 months ago: I forgot to mention that the apron on the "Addams Family" had been spray painted black. The artwork on the apron is a decal instead of the factory screen printing.
