    We now have official confirmation that the Magic Girl pinball prototype machine was finished in assembly and testing this week and is on it's way to Tacoma for the show. This has been one of the most anticipated new pins in recent years and mired in delays and controversy, it will be exciting to see it's world debut in person at the NW Pinball & Arcade Show!

    The first 4 semis of games have been unloaded at the Tacoma Convention Center already and the trucks are out for their second run of game pick ups!

    Also, check this out, the LeMay Car Museum is loaning us the car from The Flinstones Movie for the 2015 NW Pinball & Arcade Show this weekend. Here they are unloading it and our own Patty Okert taking a spin in it! Turns out you don't need to power it with your feet. The car will be staged next to a Flinstones pinball machine in the main show hall this weekend! They also are loaning us a Corvette, which will be staged by a Stern Corvette pin.

    Pinball Bulbs has a great line up of pimped out games this year! I can't wait for them to boot up the Bride of Pinbot 2.0 so I can try it out. I'm still on the fence about ordering it for my own Bride.

    For those that can't make it to the show, the seminars, speakers and tournaments will be live streamed. You can check the live streams out here: http://nwpinballshow.com/live-stream

    Quoted from Jared:

    Can I paypal someone money to drop tickets in the BK2K bucket? Please?? Can I win off-site?

    Ha ha ha, nope! Kinda the whole point of doing the raffles is so someone at the show can win them. Everyone gathers around and gets all excited when the ticket is drawn and there is one really happy attendee when the number is read. Plus, that would be more competition for me! The Black Knight 2000 would look awesome next to my Black Knight.

    #32 4 years ago
    Quoted from KenLayton:

    Any attendance figures for today?

    Not yet, today isn't over And lots of people are just rolling in now after work and dinner. It feels to me like we have a fair amount more people than last year on Friday. I'm expecting tomorrow to be packed and non stop fun!

    Hercules really dwarfs the other games in size.

    #57 4 years ago

    Yeah, really it's only redeeming feature is it's freakish size. We play games on it for money to make it fun.

    #77 4 years ago
    Quoted from KenLayton:

    Final attendance figures for the show?

    I saw the rough guestimate at closing, it was around 2,900-3,000, it was a couple hundred more from last year. All the pinball tournaments had significantly more players except for the women's tourney.

    #78 4 years ago
    Quoted from pinwiztom:

    I feel that the machines (working/not working) ratio was pretty good for a show like this (about 90-95% working)
    and the Tech crew tried their best to get to games needing help as soon as the tech table was notified,
    and on occasion i saw show tech people walking the rows looking for games in trouble.

    My Dr. Who went down, a pinball medic was able to do a quick board repair and had it up and running before I had a chance to look at it. A great team of repair guys this year, they were really on it!

    #79 4 years ago
    Quoted from KenLayton:

    Welby was mentioning there were some machine breakdowns on Friday and early Saturday, but the machines did get fixed promptly from what I hear.
    Also Welby did bring some of his parts supplies along and made parts available to folks to get their machines operational again. He sold lots of playfield glass too.

    Welby, Okert, Shoemaker and the show all stock a lot of parts. Typically Friday is when the most machines go down, machines that arrived with problems or that hadn't been left one for more than a couple hours in years get noticed down or with errors and most get fixed. By Saturday afternoon usually most machines are up and there are few deemed un-savable within time constraints or parts supply of the show. I think there were only 5-7 of these.
