The last one of those I saw for sale went for SICK money.

Quoted from Ranhorton:

That's straight up pinball porn!
Played TX for the first time last weekend. Absolutely brilliant soundtrack.

Naked, its the way i like my chicks, and my pins...

I am looking for an operation thunder as well, i have the last Whitewood populated PF for that game too...

#210 5 years ago

I would like to own:

Gottlieb Slick Chick
Bally 4 Million BC

I DO own:

Charlie's Angels EM (one of three or four known to exist, and I have NOS playfield and backglass for it, needs yet to be restored).

#212 5 years ago

I guess unpopular would be my Special Force. Nordman's first game and it's a crappy 6803 so it's not exactly what I would call reliable. but it's cheap ($400) and a really fun pin for the money. Those rocket launching buttons are cool and the hut-shaped pop bumpers are too funny.

As far as rare... I'd like a Sega Godzilla. I think they made around 500 or so of them. Would be on my list for sure.
I had a friend's Gottlieb Neptune in the house for a week last month. That was pretty cool and super rare as well. Under 300 made I think?
I just missed out on a somewhat local Robocop. That's another one I'd love to own for a bit.
Interflip Dragon would be cool too.

Okay.. I'm done

#213 5 years ago

Would love a super Mario mushroom world in the collection. I own a Hardbody, a lot hate on that one but I love the balanced scoring and layout.

#214 5 years ago

i'm looking for a Zaccaria Spooky if anyone is selling.

Same with Zaccaria Black Belt.

#215 5 years ago
Quoted from BeaverBrewing:

Cool layout and fun game. What kills it for some is the translight.

#217 5 years ago

I own War head to head...harder than heck to find info and parts for it. This one I had never heard of till last year.
It would fall into the unpopular game / rare to find working games.

Owned and restored the hated Mario Andretti 1120 units (low by todays standards) - PF swap - trim- legs = it got the works.
Interestingly enough I sold it for $1600 and saw it less than a year later at auction sell for under $900.
Looked and played excellent...almost bought it back. Pictures are on IPDB.

#218 5 years ago

i've seen War a number of times at shows for sale. guess they are all over here in the midwest.

#219 5 years ago

vizi war.jpg

I see a bunch of Viza Wars, both versions, all the time, but usually broken.

Great Frazetta artwork!

#220 5 years ago
Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

A true grail pin. Congrats.
I bet there is not very many of the original 600 produced that are left in the world.

that would explain why the last 2 I saw for sale, went for nearly 20k.

#221 5 years ago

Block -A -Shot Basketball. Can't find one for the life of me.

#222 5 years ago
Quoted from BeaverBrewing:

i've got one. not working... lemme know...

#223 5 years ago

I want a working Viza War (and a Gottlieb Challenger), but I'm a head-to-head whore.

I'm thrilled just to have an awesome Joust, a (claimed HUO) A.G. Soccer-ball that plays like a dream, and a nice USA Football.

Other rare or semi-rare members of my collection:

Alvin Gs:
Pistol Poker
Al's Garage Band Goes on a World Tour
Dinosaur Eggs

Night Moves
Transporter: The Rescue
Rocky

It's fun having pins that people have never seen, and giving them an experience they will remember.

Shoot, I was googling head to head pinball machines to see what was out there and stumbled upon someone who had blogged about my A.G. Soccer-ball! http://pinballsoul.com/rare-head-to-head-pinball-game-a-g-soccer-ball/

As I looked at the pics and started the video, the realization set in that I was watching my own pin!

dang... never seen one before until now.
where did you get that?
how many are there?

#225 5 years ago

500 Alvin G Soccers
100 Alvin G USA Football
Similar but a little different

#226 5 years ago

The first head to head pins I saw were in a Philadelphia collector's storage unit. He didn't want to sell either one though, particularly his USA Football, which he said he'd waited years to find. I always remembered him saying he pounced when it went up for sale and had it shipped from across the country. I decided I would do the same one day. Oddly enough, both of my Alvin G head to head pins were in the South, one in AL, the other in GA (they're now in my dining room! )

#227 5 years ago

I own a Playmatic Big Town
The Video shows the first play after Powersupply repair.

#228 5 years ago

I've got a Midway Rotation VIII cocktail, just need to get the boards up to Canada for repair.
Here's a great site about the game and Tim Polzin's great work on bringing them back to life.

#229 5 years ago
Quoted from Ranhorton:

For some reason I like Big House.
Never played it but something about it intrigues me.

Just played today, great music, mel blanc like call outs
Doppy= we'll never get out of here
Tuff Guy= Shut up and keep diggin.

It has auger lift, blow the bridge with 2 or 3 multiball. All lites on PF go out and search lite swings back and forth at start of multiball.

Really fun. yeah you don't see it much.

I was trying to figure out the Movie/Jail reference in the BG. Closest I've come up with is old movie Big House USA.

#230 5 years ago

I would like a Mystery Castle. Anyone have one they would like to trade me?

#231 5 years ago

Gottlieb Astro, I know it's not a very fun game, but I love the artwork. I found one in a friend's warehouse, unfortunately it had been catching water from a leaky roof for 20+ years and was pretty destroyed. I saved the head, but the body was destroyed.

An Asteroid Annie would be pretty neat too. Still kicking myself for not buying the one that came up on Mr Pin last year right before Allentown.

I want a Mr. Black

OK that game is creepy.

#233 5 years ago
Quoted from charliex:

Block -A -Shot Basketball. Can't find one for the life of me.
» YouTube video

That game looks awesome! Out of all the games that could be remade, this one might be the easiest to do.

Designer- Satan

That thing is cool

#235 5 years ago

Verne's world built by spinball based on Jules Verne.
I owned it for about a week and someone wanted it more than me at the time so...
I wouldn't mind owning it again knowing more about pins now than I did then.

#236 5 years ago

Sorry I forgot a link to youtube

#237 5 years ago

Crappy video,I couldn't find a better one.

Quoted from charliex:

Block -A -Shot Basketball.

Thanks for putting that one up. Really cool. The trajectory angles are like perfect.

#239 5 years ago
Quoted from snyper2099:

Torpedo Alley. I've had 2.5 of them... .

I've had 3 of them, and I had to smash one up and rob it for parts (which I still go to from time to time) pretty rare, I would say I've seen about 8-10 over the years.

Pink Panther is a very rare pin, I had only ever seen that game for sale twice and the second time I bought it. 90% of the Pink Panthers went over seas. Wish I didn't sell it.

Solar Fire had, is a rare one. Transporter the Rescue is pretty rare and a fun pin.
