    Man, I want to see this!
    We filmed the episode back in April and I'm unable to see it as Discovery Canada is not able to be viewed here in Texas.

    Filming lasted the better part of a day. It was long and tedious but fun no less.
    Scripted...of course. It's reality TV, aren't they all

    As for the price, $3500 is about in line what we sell restored/refurbished Gorgar Pinball Machines at the retail level,
    less expensive for sure on the secondary/collector level.

    Honestly for us to sell a Gorgar in the $2800 - $3500 range isn’t at all out of the question on the retail level. Buyers feel comfortable when they know they have someone to call on if they ever have a problem with during or after the warranty, whether it be 2 months or two years. We’re not going anywhere and that gives them a sense of comfort.
    As for Leds from a business stand point. Leds kits (good ones, non-ghosting) are running $150-$200 From our friends at Cointaker. If anyone has ever installed a full led kit into a game you know it’s nothing you can do within 30 minutes, it’s a several hour install. Our employees are installing them and being paid by the hour. At the end of the day it’s a business and we have to turn profit. Just as the commercial mechanic does works working on one’s car. The shop rate will be more than he is paid per hour.

    Please don’t take my reply as snarky. That totally isn’t my intention. Just explaining ourselves. It’s a pinball business that puts bread on the table for Our company of 10 employees.
