You fill in the blank.

Having a sort of up and down pinball/ pinside experience as of late...negative threads, hype threads, no time to play, games kicking my ass nightly, minor repairs, etc.

THEN....Chris calls last week and says "come pickup your TZ"

Will spare you a million pics (just 3 with a mirrored backglass that cannot be captured w my poor photo skills). We all know how insane his work is.

Suffice to say - my pinball universe is right again now that my TZ has made it back home....

...When a machine catches on fire while playing?

Somebody FINALLY brings a new Gorgar playfield to market. Been waiting like 3 years (at least).

When I have that TZ and AF. Outstanding man.

#12 2 years ago

When the hobby goes back to it being more of an "engineer/tinkerer's" hobby/playground and away from the "How many zeroes do I need to put at the end of this check of mine?" mentality.

And that's not a dig at the OP.

#13 2 years ago

When people are sharing in genuine fun. That's about all there is to it for me.

Megadeth pinball machine gets made.

When the long awaited AC/DC code update finally drops

#23 2 years ago

When someone finally makes a new LCD era kick ass back to the future trilogy pin, complete with video and audio from the films including all the music!

To be fair that would complete my pinball universe

#24 2 years ago

..... When I finally can start paying off the debt incurred by trying to build up a pinball hobbiest business over the past decade.

#25 2 years ago

When I get to have a dedicated basement. Not an easy task here. Might take many years, if it happens at all...

#26 2 years ago

.....when you go to look at a game FS locally, get it dirt cheap
and not only is it an easy fix but a great game and wifee likes it.

Makes up for missing a pinball show.

No better pair sitting next to each than TZ and TAF. Gorgeous games!

Couldn't agree more....thanks.... these were my first 2 machines (TAF first, followed later by TZ) that really started my hobby/ obsession w owning these crazy things.

They have value to me that far exceeds any monetary $$$ that would be attached. Suffice that I rarely bring personal things outside of pinball into the forum, but these 2 are literally inseparable. Pics will never do them justice.

when i acquire all the infinity stones, snap my fingers and reduce all pinball machine asking prices in half.

Wait, what!! yes, the pinball universe is awesome for you (congrats, btw)....

Prices go back to what they were in 2010.

#48 2 years ago

The games being made have enough in them worth the price and creativity.

Yes JJP has brought a lot to pins and tons of stuff in them like a true piece of art but they don’t play fast and great shots like a Stern which hardly has anything in them if you know what I am trying to say.
