Quoted from ralphwiggum:

The one and the same.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

#3152 8 years ago
Quoted from ralphwiggum:

The one and the same. I simply don't have room. Looking around my basement, that will be the easiest one to replace.

True - isn't that like your 2nd or 3rd one?

When I was at DisneyWorld they had a router one in rough shape. Playing yours was a completely different experience.

Nice setup Jim, still have ACDC?

#3159 8 years ago
Quoted from lordloss:

Thanks a lot guys. Somehow I have 5 pins in my collection and I thought i'd only ever have 1-2 at a time.

A classic case of "keeping up with the Joneses".

OF COURSE!!!

Looking to buy a pinball machine first week of January in Minne MN. Let me know what you have. Not looking on anything 3k or more.

Not quite that, its just that I keep being at the right place at the right time.

Well my "kids" would LOVE a Monster Bash. Lol, I got a pin that was at my childhood campground so I am stoked too. I don't want to jinx it so details will come.

Sad to see POTC go. Glad I got to play it a bunch, and lose horribly at it every time I played!

#3166 8 years ago

I gotta see that one....NICE!!

#3169 8 years ago

Anyone here getting a Predator? I'm on the list but would live to play one prior to all in. Btw, I'm # 51 I think.

#3170 8 years ago

I'm in on Predator but likely last in line at #250.

Quoted from bigduke6:

I am guessing there will be an opportunity to play a finished version before needing to go all in. I need to have a couple of hours on it before sending in more money as that is a very big purchase for my pocket book.

#3172 8 years ago

Got my newest pin in last night/this morning. It felt like the good idea/bad idea bit on animaniacs.

Good idea: moving in a new pinball machine.
Bad idea: moving in a new pinball machine at 1am in -5 degree weather.

All in all, my TSPP is now in my basement. Looks like Tim is only gonna have 2 of them in house now....again. Pictures to come once it's setup sometime later today.

Glad you didn't fall down your steps. To be fair, anytime you are moving a pin into the house, it can't ever be a bad idea regardless of the conditions.

The real pity here is that your van had room for two pins....

#3174 8 years ago

I can fit 4 in a caravan. I'll take the Jolly park and 3 zaccarias please.

#3175 8 years ago

Captneo you try the zaccarias app ? They have a few old machines to play, adding them slowly. I have it on ios....

#3176 8 years ago

I don't do apps. I use my phone for phone calls only. (with occasional text). I hate touch screen phones with a passion. When I had one, it was the worst year of using a phone i've ever experienced and refuse to get one ever again. (forced to have one for work but use it as little as possible.

Plus I have a virtual pin, so I can DL all the zaccarias I want. (most need to be redone).

#3177 8 years ago

ahhhh, nvm then

You're so old school, it's old school.

#3180 8 years ago

Ahh yes, one of Ken's finer ideas. I still would have loved to watch that one play out.

#3181 8 years ago

Hey, I said we can load that WoF up anytime! But once I get cash on hand (hopefully sometime mid next year) I'll be looking for another one or two, so we'll talk then.

Quoted from ralphwiggum:

"Watch that play out"....aka Ken dropping a pin down the stairs and getting some broken bones in the process. Still, I'd observe that from the sidelines.

Me too , I fear the day is coming soon when it will be our only option in cell phones though . Then I have a really big decision Learn to live without a cell phone or learn to live with a cell phone that I hate .

#3185 8 years ago

I'll just buy out the blackberry styles now when they go on clearance. Just use it for eternity.

#3186 8 years ago

Anyone here end up with the free Star Wars pin that was on Milwaukee craigslist? I called, but the guys mailbox was full. The ad has now been deleted.

#3187 8 years ago

WOW...free SW pin, must have been a real basket case. The DE SW?

#3188 8 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

Not sure, all he said was it was the "80s one"; and to come get it. I called about an hour and a half after it was posted, and yeah, full mailbox. I'm assuming he got slammed, if it was a real ad.

#3189 8 years ago

I emailed the guy who posted on CL wanting broken pins, quoting him free, and he hasn't written back.

#3190 8 years ago
Quoted from s1500:

I'd make a drive out for some free pins Got a nice "new" minivan that can fit a couple pins!

yea, that was me, I just picked it up about 6 hours ago. turned out to be an Empire Strikes Back. What a turd of a player it is. I'm currently converting it into another Virtual pin. Should kick ass.

I strangly love empire, I am guessing it's all nostalgia since I haven't played one in years.

#3193 8 years ago

well since there is only 400 made and most are not in the US. You probably won't see one unless it's at a show.

#3194 8 years ago

Crazy I had no idea it was so rare, have fun with the project.

#3195 8 years ago

btw, I was kidding about the pin. I didn't get shit. And if it was an ESB, I sure the hell wouldn't part it out. I would restore it and sell it for something fun.

It did seem weird that you of all
People would part a rare game into a virtual cab. Well played

#3197 8 years ago

Just like to give a shout out to fellow pinsider egyptrus. Picked up a MNF from him today as a Christmas gift for my dad. Super nice guy, great collection, and very hospitable. Definitely give him two thumbs up!

If you want to get back on the "Nice List" you can give me your LOTR for a Christmas present. You don't event need to wrap it! I think that would convince Santa to take you off the Naughty List.
