Just got home and figured I'd put my $0.02 in while it is fresh in my mind...

Rob Zombie... GI was out at least 1/2 Friday and today until at least 3:30pm when we left. I thought the sound was working, then not, then it was. Not sure if it was just the volume down but it was hard to hear. Gameplay was not what I was expecting. I tried to like it, I really did. Just not my cup of tea. Glad I passed on my spot so someone else can enjoy.

AMH... was going to give the raffle a try because I'd love to own one for $100. But the machine was down most of Friday and today until maybe 2-2:30pm. We owned one in the past and I wanted to play it again so I'd miss it enough to justify spending the $$$ but it wasn't meant to be.

Ghost Busters... my son and I absolutely loved this thing! So much so I helped talk the owner of the arcade(Robot City Games) I do work for into buying one. His wife was pretty sure she wanted one so I made sure to PUSH as hard as I could. Can not wait to get some quiet time in on this sucker! My son got ~340,000,000 points and we never noticed air balls or jumping rails or drop targets not dropping. All that seemed to work great for us both Friday and Saturday(we played the machine to the right at the Marco booth exclusively).

Hobbit... again, really wanted to like it but in the show environment I couldn't really get deep into it. I'd love to play this 50 times in a row to give it a good look. I can see why people love it I just hope I get time on one someday.

Spiderman VE... we loved it. But we also loved the original Spiderman so that's no surprise. I have to say that we really liked the new artwork. Fits the theme perfectly to us.

Game of Thrones... I didn't care for it while my son liked it. Seemed like most people playing it had a smile on their face(we could see while waiting in line for Spiderman and Ghost Busters).

The Beautiful BOP 2.0... damn beautiful. Looked like a newer game for sure. Didn't get time on it but there was a line for that one everytime I walked by.

Overall we thought this was the best Allentown show we've been to. It seemed like there were more vendors and the indoor flea market area was well stocked. The biggest surprise was how represented video arcade games were this year. It was nice to see a bunch of them towards the back.

Thank you Ivan and crew for putting on a great show!

Oh yeah, the food rocked again at Bada Bingg II!!! Thank yous guys!!!

#1902 4 years ago

had a great time at the show. even scored some new play field glass. before it was all sold out! Thanks Ivan for putting on another great event! looking forward to next year!

That was JPop there, right? The guy with the long hair with the girl with the gigantic fake jugs? I'm surprised he shows his face around pinball folks...

That was Stephen Keeler, the owner of Rock Fantasy. He is a member here and a great contributor to the pinball community.

#1905 4 years ago

This was my RW before it was Jim's. The picture definitely shows off the nice playfield and new translite. The "before" pictures on this one were pretty bad, but it cleaned up nicely.

#1906 4 years ago

Went on Friday and had a blast.
Big thanks to everyone who brought games.
There was so many great games to play
Picked up some glass and parts, got some good Greek food from the market
Was really digging the vendor with all the monster posters too... Picked a couple cool wall art prints from him
Best show I have been to!!

#1907 4 years ago

I was there all day Friday and had a good time. I picked up some sweet MODS from pingraffix and Steve at pinball refinery.....scored a DMD and sheet of glass from BigD.....and played some great new pins from all the competitors. I am on a Stern kick right now so GB was def the one that grabbed me the most. And the pimped out BOP from DP was one I'd like to have.....just like others have said it looked liked a NIB pin and played great. I also made a nice trade for that Gottlieb HULK I brought for the Robowars and both parties were happy.

A couple of shout outs.......Eric (eabundy on here) fixed up a board issue I was having with my GORGAR after I PMed him before the show. Even tho he was knee deep in fried Bad Cats power supply stuff he took time out to show me my issue, how test for it, and fixed me up quickly. I offered him cash but he refused with a smile and told me to enjoy my game.....which I did today! Very, very down to earth guy with a friendly persona. I think he was fixing others pins all show....thanks again Eric!!

Also wanted to thank BigD and his wife for giving me a jump on my jeep at the end of the show.....I drained the battery during my lunch break Him and his wife are the nicest "pin couple" I've met in the hobby. You guys rock so thanks much!!

I tried to score that decent Fireball EM at the show but it wasn't in the cards. There will always be another one.

Until next year......

Yes nice chatting with you! I traded Jims HULK back to him ( for the robowars) that he restored a few years ago....his first baby. I plan on putting some more love into it.....these old gottliebs are really cool to me so I'm always gonna have one in my collection.

#1909 4 years ago

Just got home, the 'fest really seems to go by too fast and next year I need to come for two days instead of a sleepover and drive back the next morning. Where were all the Pinside badges?? The only one I saw was my own.

Does anyone else go to Ice Cream World next to Comfort Inn and Holiday Inn? Great ice cream, big portions and cheap too.

My thanks go to Gatecrasher and JoeinNJ, Marc Crouse for his D-Day sideart, and most of all to the Sands Casino for paying for most of my new Alltek MPU during an hour of 3-Card Poker on the way home.

No rain next year!!!!

BTW was it just me or were many of the games set up leaning to the right?

#1910 4 years ago

Nice. Wasn't sure if you were the buyer or just an admirer. Have fun with it!

#1912 4 years ago

Another great show! Great meeting a bunch of you. Hope you enjoy D&D Rich. Sorry I never ran into u Jamie the day got away from me. Enjoyed starting the day with a game of Ghostbusters with Andrew from tilt graphics. Had a blast running into Francesco from Modern pinball and playing Hobbit and Full throttle with him. Thanks for introducing me to so many people I forgot them all! Got to put some time on The Big Lebowski and Game of Thones! Loved the Black Knight and Pinbot restored by Lee! Thought I enjoyed Ghostbusters in the morning then stumbled across Steve from the pinball refinery and the GB he turned into a work of art!! Big thanks to Jibmums running into JoeinNJ to pick up my FH ramp and for the great price Joe gave me!! Thanks to Eric Bundy for the sound board. Thanks Joe at Laseriffic, nice finally meeting you and to Matt from Back Alley Creations for the POTC diplay board! Jose at tilt graphics for the potc side decals. Thanks most of all to Ivan for hosting and all of you awesome people who bring your pins!

#1913 4 years ago

Damn Steve sorry I missed you hope everyone is still enjoying the Paragon.

#1914 4 years ago

I actually didn't play a whole lot of games this year--mainly had fun catching up up with folks, meeting new faces, and putting some faces to names of other fellow pinsiders

There were a healthy number of pins out on friday, and it seemed like quite a number of attendees on both days.

I had the same feeling. Had mine on all day Friday. Forgot it Saturday.

Quoted from investingdad:

Are you serious?
Did you mean the gal in black leather with the fake tan and...assets...with the dope leading her around?
It took everything I had not to bust out laughing at the cliche...I even told my wife about it who snorted wine out her nose at my retelling.
I hope it's not anyone on here and I'm not offending anyone, but...seriously? Do people not know how ridiculous they look like that?

That girl is a friend of mine. She's incredibly sweet. She wasn't there with that guy, she was working his booth for him. She works a lot of vending and merch booths at concerts, tattoo and other conventions. Being a girl with her "qualities" draws a lot of guys like us in to advertise whatever it is they are selling.
Yeah she's a metal chick with huge cans but we're all a bunch of nerds that could probably loose a few pounds.
Not looking to start any drama but, yeah, she's a friend and she was there to work.

LOL at someone thinking keeler is jpop.

Great show as usual. I sold a Harlem Globetrotters and brought my pro pool back home. A friend got his first ever game a steal off the floor jungle queen and couldn't be happier. Next year I might bring a tournament game for some home field advantage and the free entries sounds like a great deal.

Oh and playfield glass didn't sell out till 4 pm today...Marco had some, nobody seemed to notice, and I snagged the last sheet!

#1922 4 years ago

I was there friday, my 2 cents. First, I want to thank everybody that brought pins and to the vendors who had some interesting stuff. I was eyeballing the arcade sniper rifle, thought it would look good on my balcony, but also did not want to deal with police so did not buy. Saw a pair of rocky and bullwinkle plastics I needed on a peg board, scooped them up. Bought 2 roached playfields. Figure I'll try and repaint the artwork and maybe make a bar out of them and the 2 I allready own. For $20, its something to do when I retire one day. Bought some wall hangers, love the hobbit large one, and of course some leds and some pinballs.
Did the special force sell?
As for PINs, saw some I never saw before, got to play some for the first time. I HATE lines, so did not wait for the big lebowski and only played hobbit twice, really really enjoyed it. Tron is the fastest game I ever played, all of Pauls machines from uwannapinball are top notch.
Someone had the sound on transformers WAY up and it was pretty annoying since I was playing a pin next to it. Got to play NGG's a few times, fun fun game. Got to play medevil madness a few times, also a great game. Every flash I played seem to have issues, mainly flipper power and drop targets not really working correctly. I sold mine a few months ago and wanted to hear the flash again for old times sake. Dr Who was allready packed up when I go there around noon. The rocky and bullwinkle didn't last long, but I got some LED ideas from it. A LOT of games were not working, no credits. A few people were complaining some games were not on free play all day. All in all, a great great show. Loved the gorgeous blond girl walking around. Tried not to stare. Ate at market, had coffee there later. Picked up my usual shoo fly pie from the mennonites. As I said , loved the hobbit, but will never be abler to afford one. I wish they made a WM version (working mans), no LEDs and no video screen. Just the bare basics of the game for around $4000. I would jump on that, but $8000, just cant do it. Loved the pop up orks.
BSD is/was/and will always be one of my favorites, thank you whoever brought it. A couple supermans, which I thought were interesting because I thought they were more rare. I got to play someones TOM, enjoyed it. Got to play ghostbusters. Did not thrill me, especially for that price. Granted, did not play it much, but where hobbit immediately grabbed me, ghostbusters, like game of thrones just didn't do it for me. Also go to try star wars, which was interesting. Also the Fire! was beautiful but the bell gets to you after a while. Also got to try waterworld. very large multiball.
I don't know what it is, but every game seemed to have that glare from overhead lights right at the flippers. The game toppers were amazing.

#1923 4 years ago

I go on and off to Allentown over the years, but did both days this year.

This show is certainly growing as significant in the hobby. It used to just be the 'best' show in the NE for buying/selling.. but now it's become an event where you can see everything happening in the hobby.

The indoor version of the flea market was greatly appreciated as it avoided all the uncertainty of the parking lot in the rain. But the real stars of the show IMO were the huge vendor presence. Most of the emerging stuff in the hobby was on display for people to check out.

If it's Stern, JJP, Heighway, Dutch Pinball, Spooky, or VirtualCab... everyone's latest products were present, and in many cases in numbers! Multiple Hobbits, Multiple Ghostbusters, etc. Its huge that people can goto a single show and see all the manufacturers represented and well. In the past, that was only possible at Expo, but now we have regional shows like Allentown, TPF, CAX, etc that are getting that kind of presence as well.

On the mod scene.. it was great to see many of the big names present, and not just being sold, but the principles being around as well. It was great to meet Steve(Hemi) from PinballRefinary.. thanks for making the long trip!.. seeing Mirco from Germany.. Joe from PIngraphix, and many others. It was great to be able to chat with these folks in person and see their passion and enthusiasm in person instead of just through mails/etc.

The free play area was massive and pretty varied. And yes, I agree Friday was much better than Saturday.

This show is really setting the standard high for ReplayFX this year!!

#1924 4 years ago

Thanks to whoever brought Fire! I hadn't played it in over 25 years. It was the first pin that pulled more quarters out of my pocket than the surrounding video games. Definitely responsible for sparking the life-long interest in pins.

Also witnessed a great player beat AFM on his first ball.

Thanks to everyone that put the work into making it a really good show. If I'm still in the region, I'll be back next year, especially for the farmers' market.

#1925 4 years ago

297 game in the Freeplay Area Friday and max is 300 according to one of Ivan's Guys. Freeplay area is maxed out at 300 because of fairground electric according to him.

Overall a great show but rain Friday hurt sellers selling machine from what I understand. "Who wants to move machines in the rain".

As far as Saturday being kind of light in the freeplay area - it is sad but there is really nothing a show can really do about that. Games only stay if people don't buy them or people who bring them stay both days. Freeplay area only works as well as the people who are willing to bring machines make it.

#1926 4 years ago
Quoted from Playdium:

What are Gottlieb E/M machines running for? Previous posts say prices are high. Give us some examples.

I found the flea market pickings to be very slim this year, with mostly unattractive prices. If I were looking to buy I might have gone for the $300 Swinger but there was very little that interested me. I did notice very nice Gottlieb Batter Up and Buccannear were in the flea market today (looked like shopped games) for $600 - but games like that, you'd think they'd be much better served in the free play area than broken down in the flea market.

Gottlieb stuff on the floor - there were plenty advertised at $1,000 or higher, stuff like pop-a-card, Target Alpha...many were basically retail prices and I don't think many of those moved.

There were some deals to be had today. Card Whiz for 700 (with room to negotiate I think) was there all day. My friend bought a nice shopped and well-playing Jungle Queen for 400 (advertised price 650) today late afternoon - that might have been one of the better bargains, it was in pretty nice shape and that's a great game. Some Gottlieb one-players were hoovering around $600 advertised by the end today, wouldn't surprise me if some deals got made.

I had a decent shopped Pro Pool for 625 with no bites (I started at 850 yesterday morning). Wasn't too motivated to sell that one. And people played it all weekend so that was always nice to see.

But as always there were plenty of games there at different price ranges and conditions and it's hard to know what sold for how much. I don't really mind seeing EM folks stick to their guns on their games after years of seeing them get beat up all the time. I have a feeling the weather really killed the flea market - last year there was a big outdoor as well as indoor flea market and obviously that wasn't going to happen this time. There really wasn't much to choose from.

EM bargain/curio of the day - Captain Kidd, a real beat up but playing and shopped Gottlieb woodrail 2-player was up there for $200 or best offer. It got sold some someone got something interesting dirt cheap.

Prices for virtually all of the DMD and system 11 stuff was higher than I'd ever consider buying at a show. More and more I think the deals are just happening before, and that's not going to change. Shows like this will serve more as meeting places than market for the real sought after stuff.

#1927 4 years ago

Thanks to everyone that stopped by our little booth and grabbed some decals/magnets. This was our first Pinfest, and it will now become an annual event! Totally awesome show!

Quoted from PonchoPinDude:

Made my first trip to Allentown and i'm glad I did. I got to play many games that I have not tried before. My favorites of the show were the Pinbot and Black Knight sitting next to each other. Kudos to whomever restored those two. I have a soft spot for 80's William's machines and they looked and played very nice!

Glad you enjoyed them and thanks.

Here's that roached FH for $2200

Please remember this "Roached" Funhouse, because it will not look like that at Pintastic.. Yes I bought i..

#1930 4 years ago

Now, did you buy it for $2200? That's the question.

#1931 4 years ago

Our first Pinfest! Great stuff! Couldn't find Todd Tuckey (He must be the US version of Poke-a-roo).
Pics here: https://goo.gl/photos/or9vAdJF3g9JCuK19
Have fun getting Hobbit to light up some crazy modes. (Tweeted my score)
Got my JPH up on the GOTLE. (first game is always the best)
Bride 2.0 was just gorgeous! (chrome fingerprints up easy though)
Really wanted to buy the Speak Easy. (gotta find one local)
Pho was tasty in the farmers market. (Floor candy was equally tasty)
Can't wait for next year!

Quoted from Barakawins1:

Had a blast with my 9-yr-old daughter. Amazed how good she is for her age. She was particularly pleased with her score on Congo (yes, she crushed me). I was blown away by metallica. Hadn't played one before, and the blinged out game from pinball refinery was awesome

This is one reason I was not super upset I couldn't make it until late Friday. I brought a Pinball Magic for the free play area, and when I was coming in (around 7pm) to set up, people either looked at me like I was going the wrong way, or were really excited a machine was coming IN to the free play area.

I only walked the show on Saturday. It was busy, and yes, there were some missing games in the free play area, but I still had a great time. Was nice to meet up with some Pinsiders although I am SO bad with names. Saw Forceflow, Chris Bucci, MattG, SPFXTed. and a few others I am forgetting. Oh NJGecko - Thanks for the bee

as I always say, if you are upset about the lack of games on Saturday, bring one! I know this is not feasible for many, but for some it could be if they wanted to. ALso, many of the ones that were there were either folded up or off. If you buy something, and are hanging around, why not leave it on to enjoy? Half the fun (for me anyway) is having others enjoy my machine that I brought.

See you all next year!
Chris

#1935 4 years ago

I understand the desire to turn off a game that is sold.

Buyers might suddenly feel a sense of ownership and not want people
Beating up on their new game.

Sellers might be worried that if the game breaks, they'll have hassles of the new owner shaking them down for repair or refund.

The game I sold was left on the rest of the day and everything was fine.

Chris thanks for bringing the pinball Magic. I really enjoyed playing one that had been dialed in so well. If you ever want to sell it give me a shout.
Please don't be shy to bring that awesome machine to Pintastic in July.

#1939 4 years ago

I went both days. Friday was king for the amount of machines to be played. Saturday, I brought my daughter back & the floor was half empty, as I expected. But we still had fun! Prices were a bit inflated as stated here, but if you really liked a machine, there would probably be a deal to be made. SilverUnicorn, I bought the Avenger Hulk LE Friday morning & decided to leave it for the rest of the show. Thought it was the right thing to do! I wanted everybody to enjoy it, knowing that Saturday would be short of machines. A shout out to Paul from wannapinball for great machines & a seamless transaction. See ya's next year! Or maybe at York in the fall?

Yeah he was willing to negotiate some I also got a game off him. Was a nice guy had no issues with him at all. I bought the Pinbot right next to the Fun House. I did a lot of looking before deciding to buy it thought it was a great deal.

Yeah Lorenzo is one of my favorite people to buy from. I'm kicking myself for not grabbing that Sopranos he had.

#1943 4 years ago

You guys had better luck than my friends did. I thought the asking prices were very high for what seemed to be - without exception on that back wall - fresh off location poop like I haven't seen since the import container from France days. A guy I know - who is probably the only guy at the entire show who actually went to pinfest looking for a world poker tour - couldn't get the seller to budge off $2500 for a filthy WPT with plenty of visible ( and lord knows how many invisible) issues. That seemed like an $1800 game to me.

Glad some of you guys were able to do better.

Not looking to start any drama but, yeah, she's a friend and she was there to work.

Ya know, THIS was all I heard from my non-pinhead friend on Friday, "that woman."
The same woman I SOMEHOW missed spotting Friday.

So okay, she's what you used to (insert sexist comment here) call a 'booth babe' in the old trade show days - working someone's booth. Good for her - I managed major corporate exhibits for 20 years and that is ONE tough job, so proper Kudos to her. No kidding.

But yet nobody has a pic of her posted here?
Based on my friend's comments, you would think I missed the best thing since sliced bread.
But no pic of any kind - Anyone? Anyone?

Despite the major trailer tire malfunction, had a great time at my first pinfest. Plenty of great games, met a lot of new people, made some new connections too. One last thanks to DJReddDog and EaBundy for maintaining the games list and spreadsheet. That took a lot of time. Next stop....Pintastic! See you there.

Had a great time meeting everyone at Pinfest. Glad to meet Steve from Pinball Refinery in person, did a great job on Ghostbusters. Loved the glow in the dark white powdercoat. This was our first time as a vendor, met a lot of nice people. My Dale Jr didn't want me to sell her I guess, kept having silly issues. Looking forward to a bigger Pinfest in 2017. If anyone needs any of my button or magnet protectors, shoot me a pm, happy to mail them out.

I got a nice Congo from Lorenzo prior to the show, I went to see the Soprano's but it was sold 10 min after he put it out.

Quoted from twoplays25c:

Ya know, THIS was all I heard from my non-pinhead friend on Friday, "that woman."
The same woman I SOMEHOW missed spotting Friday.
So okay, she's what you used to (insert sexist comment here) call a 'booth babe' in the old trade show days - working someone's booth. Good for her - I managed major corporate exhibits for 20 years and that is ONE tough job, so proper Kudos to her. No kidding.
But yet nobody has a pic of her posted here?
