Nice! What are your first impressions?

Quoted from Micky:

Nice! What are your first impressions?

It's a blast. 6 of us played it for about 4 hours. Seems well built.

#6904 1 year ago

Brought this home tonight. It will have to sit in the garage for one night but will bring in tomorrow night along with a Stern NFL Bears pin.

Found myself a HUO Hook. Family owned it since '94. Got the second spot on the board my first game . Love Hook. Grew up with it. Couldn't be happier. Never going to sell it. Bangarang!

Got this bad boy home last week. The seller did a perfect job in palletizing the pin. The pin is restored and all NOS (except for sidedecals). Really happy with the purchase.

Where can one buy those pinball feets?

victory is number one on my wishlist,care to share how you came upon this one and the condition.

Those are Pin footies (TM) made by pinsider Bryan_Kelly. I have them on all my machines and love them.

#6909 1 year ago

That pin is a blast to play, definitely a "if I had one more ball" type of game. I just don't understand the high price for a single level, no ramp "old" style layout. It is SUPER fun though, so I guess that's why. I'd love to have one

Yes, they are those. I think I bought mine from Flipper Fidelity, but it was some years ago and I checked, but did not see them on their webpage anymore. I added this stuff under them (a bigger piece for sure): https://www.prisma.fi/fi/prisma/huopatassu-106-38mm-valkoinen

It has WAY more in it than any uncoded, ghosting insert, splitting cabinent, pealing decal game with ramps.

I dont understand high price on those incomplete games with stripped down parts, no fully controllable light show, with no custom music or speech; it cant be just because they have ramps?

In all seriousness >>>
Go count the coils on TNA, then count the number of fully programmable lights in the lights show, then realize it shipped code complete and is on the 3rd update since the first one shipped, then realize it has custom art, music, and callouts, then realize it has lazer etched trim, then realize it has number displays and a LCD, then realize it has a real and great quality backglass, then realize it has a new pf which appears super solid, then realize it has 2 real service rails, then realize it has a sub chamber box built into the game, then realize the brain running the game is P-roc which is a super solid and time tested boardset that is serviceable for decades to come, and I think you get the point They did not strip down this game. They built it fully featured and rockin solid!

Toss it all together that this is built by a small startup company that does not garner the scale of production savings that larger companies do.

I honestly am amazed they can sell it for 5995 when the large scale competition is pumping out 50 games per day on a stripped down pro model for 5100+ ! This comes not as a fan of the game, but someone that has been under the hood and is operating the game on route. I also have been under the hood on the competition and TNA is in another league.

I can tell you that I got my money's worth without a doubt. But i don't need a pinball machine that tells me a 45 minute story and gently feeds the ball back to the flippers with $125 worth of recycled soda bottles on each side. If Stern builds a game with the features and fun contained in this game then I will buy a NIB from them someday too.

Do I win the clean garage award? I have zero space to work in there I really need to clean up!

Sweet King Pin! It's on my top 5 and I played it when it came out also. There was always a line for that pin.

I like the one you are showing also along with the Volley and is that a Atlantis?

I can't say I disagree with either of you. I played this pin at the pinball life party and absolutely loved it. All new pins are expensive though and I ask myself the same question every time I buy one "why did I just buy this overpriced item". The difference with this pin for me is the operating stand point. Although super fun, to the novice or casual pinball player, this pin sitting next to another modern machine looks old in comparison. With that said, the newer machine is most likely to take the attention of the patron. Also, the ball time on this machine is not like the newer pins (I love the TNA rule set) so a casual player might play it and walk because they can't keep the ball in play. I could be wrong. I'd like to buy one for one of my locations, I was told today it would be March 2018 before I could take delivery.

Quoted from cosmokramer:

thats a great EM...my buddy has a pretty nice one...

I had another King Pin (nice condition) about 20 years ago, but got squeezed out of my line up and sold it to a friend who still has it. After having 150 games go through my collection in the last 30 years and lately not buying anymore because all 4 game rooms in the house are filled up...I couldn't pass this one up. For sure it will come out nice once I go through it.

If you are planning to get for route all I can say is DO IT!

Game does not look old at all (in a line up with Alien and TH and TWD and various others) and most people figure out very quickly it is the newest thing. The light show alone draws them in like flies.

Game times with lanes open were under 2 min in month 1. Game times with lanes slightly more closed are near 3 min and people are learning how to play in month 2.

You alos need to factor in the servicability and ease of maintainence on this game which is great. Pretty simple to wipe down and keep clean. That to me is a nice plus.

Got a rental house you could store more in if your interested? Little more than 1400 square feet. But that's a drive to store them.

At first, I thought that was a mistake. I never knew King Pin
came out 1 1/3 years before Pin Up.
That might be the record for time in between Replay to its
Add-a-Ball version..

Very happy with my Pinball Refinery Edition of MET Prem. Beautiful work, Steve is great to deal with, this machine looks better than an LE in MHO... ...and his lighting idea's are very tasteful,,,I dare say the lighting is better than my STLE that it is sitting right beside...

#6935 1 year ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

One player? I did grab it from Gary when he was swinging down by the area. It is intermittently jumping the second and fourth player, but otherwise plays perfect. Might be the stepper unit. It's definitely a players game by the playfield and BG condition, but cab is really nice and it's a fun EM.

About time you set that up! It is a very fun game to play, great seeing it setup again.

I'll give you a shout later, need to decide what to do about Bus Stop and Ship Ahoy.

#6938 1 year ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

On the right side of the Playfield is that a working flipper? It looks like a ball would get stuck there if that is just a ball guide.
Went to IPDB, there at least 3 different set ups on this game. Flipper plastics used as guides. No guide in that location. 2 posts with a rubber ring. Those oblong diamond shaped posts. One could use any version of this.

No, shipped it in from out east. Thanks, Seems to come in bunches. Need to figure out space next as usual!

No working flipper. Just needs to be tightened down. I did pic this up today.

Is that the one that was for sale on CL in PA? I can across it a few times in my search for a Williams wood rail but a little bit further than I wanted to drive.

Looks great!
