#15512 3 months ago

If anyone is looking for a Data East Hook cab with all the armor I have one 25 bucks

#15513 3 months ago

Anyone have a project/ blown out system 3 GTB game.

I am mainly wanting the cabinet and associated parts.

Thinking of actually trying to build a Hoops from scratch. I know.... kind of a dumb game to build from scratch. Lol.

Dang, yeah might be a fun project but I’m pretty sure you are going to end up spending quite a bit if you build one from scratch.

Quoted from trilogybeer:

Yeah, I am guessing it could get expensive.

I have kind of always wanted to put a game together from a variety of parts.

Lots of people have done the classic Bally’s. Guessing nobody would even consider a damn Hoops. Hahaha.

If I can find a donor cabinet then I will make a go of it.
I figure there must be lots of crappy GTB from that era that became parts games???

#15516 3 months ago

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all.

#15518 3 months ago

Hi all,
Merry Christmas!

We have a trip up to Wisco next week. This time I am not posting looking for a game (well who ever turns down a deal? ) I am planning on getting over to District 82 for Friday the 1st. If anyone is gonna go, its always cool to meet some folks and chat. I can wear a Chiefs hat to make it easy to identify. Probably a safe bet I would be the only one right?

Are the playfields the same size on those "street level" games? I though they were a bit shorter? Hoops is a steet level Premier/Gottlieb

Hoops is short. I assume most sys 3 cabs are similar though?

Go homebrew man! Pick a kickass theme and get a playfield layout designed. I think you could make a good flipping game.

Last I saw he has a few used left from the giveaway. Couple new ones might be left at $50.

#15535 3 months ago

I was lucky enough to watch the unboxing and get some time in on the Led Zeppelin pro at the Blue Moon Bar in Madison. The artwork is a way better in person and it plays fast and fun. I would have played more but 8" of snow forecasted?!?! Make it out if you can, they have a fantastic lineup and take every precaution possible.

A 2fer in Madison.

Also up an rocking at Pooleys on east side.
I agree. Fun to play. Great back hands. Cool combos.

Quoted from Brettv:

I have a burner, but I don't have any blank roms, so I would need the originals to erase and reburn.

good price on the party animal. Playfield is in fairly good shape compared to the ones people try to send me.

#15543 3 months ago

Anyone in the cities here have any spare stern hard black post sleeves they could sell me? Could also use titan tapered post sleeves. I’m trying to master Iron Maiden over my holiday break here but the superband posts launch the ball everywhere!!

I have hard black rubber ones though not Stern specific. They help ?

I'll dig around, I think I have the ones I took off of Maiden and I'll be in Minnetrista at the end of my workday tomorrow.

#15546 3 months ago

Thanks for the offer gentlemen. Looks like 9 would do the trick.

I found 8 so far but you can have them if you'd like, I'll bring them with me tomorrow.
