Thanks crank. I looked at his site and it says due to family trouble he's not taking any work right now. I'll keep watching his page and ping him when he's back, thanks!

Just got back from my first night of golf league. 36 degrees and wet as can be. Not much fun but the burgers, beer and whiskey were good. Fingers too numb to play pinball right now.

Thats fine, I'll gladly take any games you are unable to play! Too damn cold for outdoor activities Russ!!

#1058 9 years ago

We got about 15 inches down here, had to take my snowblower back out of the shed. Took hours to do all the snow, VERY heavy stuff.

My first NIB! Tron Pro is in da house! (well, ok... in the garage.)
Thanks to Centerflank for pointing me to Trent @ Tilt. Very easy to deal with.

(No thank you's to the trucking company though... 3+ hours late (7:00pm) and no liftgate. Even though the BOL clearly stated liftgate. Had to transfer from the semi to the bed of my pickup to get to the garage... all in the rain.)

Luring friends over with free beer, for a Saturday unboxing (and dragging downstairs).

Yeah... Thanks.
I'm generally not a fan of the newer machine. Too old... I get "sensory overload" with all them fangled lights & sounds. (Borg multiball on STTNG sends my sobbing in the corner.) LOL
But always been a Tron fan, liked the new movie and really liked the pin too.

So you are saying you are going to pimp it out?

#1068 9 years ago

For you Madison area folks... BBH & R&B are gone at Eastgate Cinema, and an Avengers pro & Fish Tales are in their place.

#1071 9 years ago

Just had a friend stop over @ DeLeo's in Woodbury, MN. They removed FT, but added POTC and SWE1. Full lineup: IJ4, Avatar, POTC, and SWE1.

Yep... already have the arcade mod 3.1 on order.
Watching Eli's ramp lighting thread closely. Need to order the Flynn sign.
Gotta see which Cliffy/protectors come on mine before ordering... seems from reading threads there was some inconsistancy as to what the factory was installing, etc.
I still got all the Hallmarks for my STTNG I gotta install too.

Mine came with the cliffy ramp protectors, I HIGHLY recommend getting the arcade scoop protector asap!

I also just put some thin mylar strips in the shooter lane where the ball pops out the trough and rests against the autolauncher plus the shooter lane metal protector that attaches to the two screws at the ball trough pop out edge. I just did that to all my sterns last night.

Thanks for the heads up Tully! Where did BBH and RandB go?

They're getting shopped out by yours truly right now, and I'm not sure where they're going.

I got to beat on Avengers for the past 2 weeks... Fun game!

#1076 9 years ago

any chance you guys are getting a MET to put out?

Hopefully you'll have that BBH around your place long enough for me to get down there. That's a game I really want to spend some quality time with. The few times I've played it on route I've really enjoyed it.

Tully pin party!!!!

Sorry, no Metallica unless I buy it for myself....Which I am considering....But I've gotta play it and clear some financial hurdles that are coming up. I'll know mid-June.

And I do want to throw a party at some point! But first, I've got to clear up some projects that are cluttering up the Garage so I can get it back to "normal"!!!

Hey All,

Finally got a few machines out of the basement. Figure I'll offer them here first.

First up is the Slugfest. Nice condition overall. Light cracking on the CP. DMD in nice shape. LED's on all the inserts and reg. bulbs on the GI.

No card dispenser. Took some picks of the dents and dings in the cab

Broken bleacher plastic but I purchases one of those overlays someone was making. I just haven't installed it.

$1200.00 firm.

What else is coming out of the basement...

#1083 9 years ago

I want Rusty's SOF!!!

#1084 9 years ago

It's giving me fits. Drop targets only work sometimes. Sometimes rattling the coin door helps.

Your playing BSD too much and need to sell because you are neglecting your other games.

They all need a little help right now but they are in better shape than I am.

Says the guy with 21 pins that I want 10 of.

I'll come and get it, bring it home and fix it for you. It might take me a year to totally fix it though...

There is a really nice SOF for sale in the Twin Cities, but it is not cheap.

#1090 9 years ago

Hello Minnesota/Wisconsin! I wanted to introduce myself to Pinside. My name is Tony and I currently live in Woodbury, MN. I have had a small collection of Pins for a few years and only recently discovered Pinside and my love for some of the DMD pins. I have added 3 new games to my collection in the recent past and have been having a blast! I have met some great people here on Pinside as well as Jonogo

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

Tony, I just saw your Tri-Zone on CL. Don't forget to mention pins for sale right here. No one will beat you up over asking $500 for a game.

So I have a few days off (starting tomorrow) and was wondering who wants to show off their AC/DC? Been wanting to try one out but can't find one on location.
