    Oh damn, that's my Holy Grail pin. Started saving for one a few months ago but spent my money on other pins.
    Marry Christmas to you buddy.

    #57 4 years ago

    Nope... I would say this guy wins!

    Best gift i have seen in here so far

    Quoted from egyptrus:

    My daughter got me $30 in quarters, identified 3 or 4 local places to play pinball and then wrote a little Christmas poem saying that her and I were going to spend some time during the Christmas holiday playing pinball together at the places she identified.
    Pretty creative gift and guarantees some pinball and time together. Pretty cool I'd say.

    I got to spend the day with my awesome wife and we shopped out a slugfest for about 6 hours. Does not get much better than listening to good music and spending the day working on pinball right alongside of my wife!

    #59 4 years ago

    I got me a 1982 to present edition of The Pinball Compendium.

    The wife, she got something better

    #60 4 years ago

    Here is what I got today.
    The color DMD.

    No one bought me any Pinball presents so I bought myself an AFM. Who needs Santa.

    #67 4 years ago

    Santa brought me this...

    I'm not sure if I was naughty, or nice.

    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    Big December shake up at my place. Said goodbye to IMVE and ACDC Premium. Santa replaced them with GOT LE, Whoa Nellie and Demo Man on Steroids.

    I have a friend that owns a Demo Man on Steroids. WOW, what an awesome game!

    #71 4 years ago

    Color DMD's. IM and Shadow. Sweet!

    #72 4 years ago

    I got zilch, zero, nada, nothing, bupkis. Not a sausage. (Not even a sausage bonus, Rudy's jaw gave out again!)

    But I did just recently decide that trying to run my eBay business out of my home was causing overcrowding, with resultant chaotic thought patterns, so I cleared all that out of the shop area, rearranged the cubicle walls, brought home the rest of my games from heated storage and got them up on legs, and now I officially have a split-level game room, 9 games up and 16 down.

    Meanwhile, I rented a retail space on a busy road (only a mile from the daycare I also own), where I moved all that inventory, and now I will finally be able to get serious and actually "go to work" instead of having all these shiny ball distractions. More of a New Year's resolution, really. I can already tell this will work much better, and I'm psyched!

    #73 4 years ago

    A cold beer, old bay steamed shrimp and watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with the wife and two daughters. What a way to finish Christmas day.

    Xmas vacation is a family tradition. My entire extended family watches it each year. We all know it backwards and forwards. Haha. Thanksgiving is Trains Planes, and Automobiles.

    Didn't get any pin related things for Christmas so I bought a Medusa for myself.

    "Santa bought myself" a nice 15" drill press, a set of Cobalt bits and a clamp and a vice to keep stuff still while I drill it. I'll find a way to make it pinball-related.

    Yesterday my husband gave me a new tool bag and miscellaneous tools for fixing pinball machines.

    But the really big gift that I got was a new house, with TWO places to keep pinball machines!!! Here's the room that will be my first floor game room/bar!

    We close in February! I am so excited!!!

    Thanks! I've spent almost 20 years wanting to have space for pins, so I'm almost shocked that it's finally coming to pass!

    #91 4 years ago

    Finally got a pinball decals chrome coin door to finish off the complete chrome package soup to nuts on my tron LE. Thanks Joey. Boy that pin is shiny! Merry Christmas all!

    #92 4 years ago

    I spent the morning and afternoon cleaning up the back of my office to make room for my space station which has been worked on out in the work shop for months. It has a nice spot inside the house and working great (except for the quirky ball popper in the back corner...).

    #93 4 years ago
    Quoted from visi0n:

    some finishing touches to our Dome gaming rig..

    That rig looks awesome. Can you please share some more pictures and information about it. Looks very interesting and reminds me of the new Star Wars Pod.

    #94 4 years ago

    Not one but TWO orders from Cointaker!
    A HUGE shout out to Melissa and friends
    who fought through black Friday and
    small business Saturday and cyber
    Monday to give flawless service.

    There is no substitute for quality. Period.

    For me its not what Santa brought, it is what he did not bring. I lost two brothers and one sister at xmas time 46-48 years ago. I have been an only child since. Then mom took her life at the holiday in 1998...dad same thing but in 2000. Each xmas I just pray I do not lose anyone. I am 52 and thank goodness I have my wife of 26 years and three healthy children...or I would have no family at the holiday season. I know some people do not even have what I have. I feel so bad for them. It has to be so so so lonely. My wife and I volunteer every day ( non holiday season once a month) at the homeless shelters here St. Petersburg. Most of these poor souls have family out there..but for a variety of reasons, the have been disowned. It is sad.

    I wish everyone a safe holiday season...cherish ever day what you have. If you have siblings and parents, try not to argue or be distant. It just is not worth it! Others would love to have what you have but never will

    I was going to post what I got, but wow. What a story.
    Glad you are doing well this year sir.
    No one should have to go through all of that.

    Similar situation on many accounts here, brother. I'm glad you're staying strong and pressing on. Thats really what has gotten me through the years and I'm glad to say that it gets better. Its the interim part that is tough.

    Cheers, and stay positive man. Its all about what money can't buy in life.
