MET is growing on me. never thought it would. absolutely hate the band. congrats.

No pins all summer and now two pins in three days. When it rains it pours. I am really curious to see how these slot type reels are integrated into the rule-set. Everyone likes slot machines, right? Some pinball purists won't agree with me but I won't mind waiting for the reels to stop spinning - or do you keep playing while the reels are spinning. Lots to explore with this one.

Love these 70's Williams pins!

Quoted from RonSS:

Yeah, it's funny, many of the coveted pins do little to move me. .

I gave Abracdabra a spin at Pintastic, I fail to see what all the fuss was about, same for Lucky Hand.

On the other hand Domino is a little regarded pin and I find mine to be a blast and it gets played at least 2-3 times when I step in the shop.

I had that one, they don't spin but advance just one position like scoring reels per ball strike on the targets/roll overs.

The game is ok. As the reels advance the collectable bonus changes up/down depending on the value displayed.

This one has a happy home now in Virginia, guy was really excited to buy it as he use to play it when he was a kid.

What more could you ask for?

My most recent pickup. Just babysitting it for a friend at the moment but I did technically bring it home. It's a lot more fun than I anticipated it to be.

Ended up with a fairly rare find last week--Gottlieb Star Race. Never thought I'd see one in the wild. I never cease to be amazed at what pops up.

The MPU had battery damage, so it wouldn't boot. A previous owner zip tied the game over relay so the coils would still flip, and they continued playing it in that state. There was a beer bottle cap taped down in the kicker hole so the ball wouldn't get trapped. I'm not sure what they did about getting the ball out of the trough and into the shooter lane since those coils are under the apron and can't be manipulated manually by just reaching in through coin door.

The backglass is flaking, has a small chunk missing, and the playfield has some wear and is flaking above the flippers. I never know what to do with flaking playfields since I don't do clear coating, and I'd rather not throw down mylar since it would only pull up the paint later and cause problems for future restoration. Maybe I'll hunt down someone in the area who can spray it without having to take apart everything on the underside of the playfield.

This weekend, I got a good deal on a TAF. It needs board work and a shop job at the very least, but it doesn't look like it's been heavily routed, so there's very little mansion wear and no magnet burn. A playfield swap is probably not even be necessary, which is a surprise.

Just a few days before I ended up with this, I commented in another thread that I had been looking for a project TAF for a few years in anticipation of the CPR TAF playfield, but didn't think I'd find one because of the scramble there would likely be for project TAFs. Once again, I never cease to be amazed to what pops up.

Congrats, cool game. Almost bought one of these myself. One popped up a few months ago just a couple of hours away. I could have had it, but I decided to keep the space and money for other ventures. Probably the right decision, but I still regret not getting it. I watched the ad for a few more days until it finally disappeared.

#6418 2 years ago

I probably paid a bit much for it in the state it was in, but I figured I'd probably be hard pressed to find another one. It's an unusual layout and has wildly colorful artwork, almost like the Atari games.

Welcome to the TAF club! Such a classic.

Was that the Craigslist ad? I saw that, went pretty quickly! I was thinking about looking at it but sounds as though it found a much better owner.

Ya should stopped over..... 5 minutes from my house. I went to look at that..... That's one wiiiide body!

Yeah--interestingly enough, I was the third person who reached out to the seller. The first guy (I guess it was yzfguy?) looked at it and decided to pass, and the second guy just wanted to lowball it before even looking at it.

Quoted from yzfguy:

I should start announcing when I go on a game run, lol. Some of them end up being 2-3+ hours each way and I probably do end up near some forum regulars like you without even knowing it.

It's ridiculous how wide this game is. That extra 3" of width from "regular" widebodies made so I almost couldn't fit both the body and the backbox in my vehicle. I had to do a little extra maneuvering. It was a very tight fit.

#6423 2 years ago
Quoted from OffshoreTrucker:

First pin. Lurking on pinside opened the flood gates to finally buy one.

Welcome to the hobby! Now go buy a bigger house-your collection will grow quickly! LOL

Quoted from Jakers:

Ro Go gets a ton of grief. I like the artwork and theme. I enjoyed playing it, but it was brand new at the time so that may have something to do with it. That middle horseshoe shot is risky, making that shot is so frustrating when half of the time it ends up going SDTM.

I would buy one in a heartbeat if I could find one under $400 - sentimental value for me!

Enjoy Ro Go it while you have it. Thanks for posting the pics and bringing back fond memories.

Did anyone from Pinside in the New England area score that free Star Wars that was on cl?

I kind of think that was a fake ad. It's not the first time I've seen a "free" star wars game listed in the Boston area.

I had a suspicion it was fake too. But what would the benefit be for someone to post a fake ad like that? Just curious.

To collect real phone numbers to add to a call list sold to telemarketers, I would guess.

Sweet Hearts came home not today but a few weeks ago.
Sweet Hearts was my first pin. I got SH out of the neighbors trash about 1976. Took me 2 years to get it working back then with no info and hardware store 44, 47 bulbs. Sold it about 1979 for 150.00. Started life long fun with coin op. This one crossed my path and could not resist. Took over a year to get this one looking like this. Big Thanks to Bgresto, Paintpins, Gmkalos, Pinball Resource for helping to make this better than new.

I'm not familiar with EM does that just have three digits counter and a illuminated 1?

What happens if you go past 1999?
