Quoted from AlexF:

Hey, that looks familiar. Nice to meet you Spinout. The leds weren't my idea. It came to me that way. I thought all the young guys like them and the only way I can get rid of them is to leave them in a game when I sell it.

Ha! Ha! Hello again. It was a pleasure.. and thank you for getting that beast out of the basement. I used your technique to get her into mine without my wife having to help. You have quite the cool collection going on! #44 and #47 bulbs are cheap as the day is long - amazing how many bulbs there are in that thing. Love the glow of an incandescent bulb. I can't even use LED lighting on anything in my house - the blue light, frequency of light, overly white, something bothers my eyes. Even the ones trying to impersonate an incandescent bulb just look like yellow LEDs to me. I know I am crazy.. hell, I have to order regular lamp incandescent bulbs on the internet now as stores don't carry them anymore. Thank you again!

That's good you got in without summoning the wife. Makes it easier to sneak the next one in. As far as the bulbs go you're preaching to the choir. I am a bonified member of the incandescent fan club. Mostly just a bunch of cranky old timers in there, but they are a good group.

What is this solo moving technique?

With an EM a dolly is what I use. I have some outside stairs and I bring them in by myself all the time. Nothing complicated. I need help with later SS stuff where the head is attached though.

Quoted from AlexF:

Also, one leg at a time off on one end so you can set one end down on the floor and take the legs off the other side. Once fully on the floor, tip it up onto the dolly and out the door! Previously, I put the whole cabinet on top of something (2 storage bins, a desk) so I could get all 4 legs off and lift. This was easier. Then just tip in on its edge, onto the dolly and away she goes! Once at my house, I dolly it up to the front door, lay the dolly flat, pushed it over the door threshold on a blanket, slid it in and slid it right down the basement stairs. I previously had my wife help me carry... it was like carrying a casket with only 2 people! She was super angry afterwards! "The next time you buy something, you need to call your friends/brother etc.!!!"

HA! I am with you! I would love to see her face when one just appears in the basement! I like that photo someone posted... looked exactly like an icebox... the only LEDS in my house are on electronics/cable boxes and in the refrigerator. Grand Prix has quite a bit of yellow in the theme and the LEDs (being of a bluish frequency and odd color temp) gave it an odd cold yellow-green glow. She is now a nice warm shade of 1976-1977... you may notice I still have a few left to swap out in scores for players 3 and 4 and playing up #.

Thanks! For the money, the system 11 games are the most fun for me to play. Got to play Funhouse last weekend and it was also great.

Ready for the summer so that WW fan will cool me off!

#7664 1 year ago

Maybe he meant he liked system 11 games and also like funhouse since he got to play it this weekend lol. It would be easy for people to put bride and funhouse both in with the system 11 games since they are WPC but they don’t use DMD.

You are a young guy so I'm going to swap out all the incandescents for whatever leds I still have laying around on whatever machines I'm going send you, and you're gonna like it!

That's ok. The price is right. I have been too lazy to take them out of the last few games I've gotten.

I'd bet some cheddar that's the one. Not a game you see too often.

And if it is the one, that thing was in fantastic shape.

I don't know James...I think you're mistaken.

The one I played up there was in the free play area on the end....and it was nice. zacaj, forceflow and I spent a good amount of time staring at it.

I'm with you--there's no way that's the same one.

I'll have to check, I think I have a photo of my son playing it.

So I finally found a nice HUO Hulk locally and decided to pull the trigger. I’ve wanted once since they came out. This is such a great underrated game! I’ve been working on it and playing it since I brought it home last Saturday. Some of the things I’ve done so far:

1. Green undercab lighting
2. LED strips on the back of the back box tied to flashers
3. Trimmed the Thor plastic so I can see the drop targets
4. Fixed the Hulk arms so the ball doesn’t get stuck
5. Shimmed the Black Widow ramp for perfectly smooth shots
6. Trimmed the Loki lock plastic to make the right orbit visible
7. Added the clear sling shot plastic mod so the Loki inserts are visible
8. Corrected the lighting for the apron (looks much better in person)
9. Changed the coin door bulbs to green LEDs
10. Installed brighter LEDs in the apron spotlights
11. Changed all the flasher bulbs to LEDs

And the one thing this game desperately needed...a brighter playfield!

12. Added 4 spotlights on playfield

The Avenger speaker acrylics and LEDs will be here tomorrow, and I’m still trying to decide if the color DMD is worth the price tag. Can’t think of much else to do to this game.

How does it look with the added spotlights?

Wasn't there two of them at that show?

Here's one of them at pintastic 2017. Marked as not for sale.

[edit]: Yep, there were two there.

#7680 1 year ago

Hmm. When we were there the first morning, there was only one. The one we played was for sale, if I recall correctly. I also thought it was in a different spot in the room.

#7681 1 year ago

Yeah mine has significant flaking in the reds on the backglass. Those look much better.

#7682 1 year ago

Jazzed about this grab! Crazy how many people just have one pinball machine randomly in their house and it just sits there for years.

Usually they play it for about a year or two and then when the batteries go dead or start to leak, it just sits there until the children are all grown up and leave home.

No Play field wear no cabinet damage

edited > this is not the thread to be questioning a claim of HUO.

I am sorry. Enjoy your new game.

#7688 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

Huo? Looks like ghosted inserts and pf planking. Sad to see a home owner took such bad care of it. Must have left it in cold storage for years?

Wow! you can see all that you are amazing! people like you are one of the reasons people don't like to post on here!

I was not trying to be a jerk. That is a good example how HUO games that are not taken care of properly can get issues. Look at the inserts by the flippers. All the pill inserts have clear coat raised and ghosting. The KO insert area has planking it the pf. It takes a glance to see these imperfections. People often assume that 'huo' infers a condition but it just means that the game is expected to only have been in a non commercial spot for its life.

If someone does not take care of the game then things happen.

Still looks like a great game! Enjoy the new score!

You question it's HUO by 3 inserts that have slight clear ghosting???? Did you see that cab? Are you ever positive about anything in your posts? Go away you keyboard cowboy!

Self appointed guru,
How do you take care of a WPC-95 game on insert ghosting as the whole world would love to know? Only way is playfeild protector which they did not have in 1998. You think the HOU owner did not try to prevent planking? That really isn’t full planking as in clear coat not wood as I am sure you know. You can have a perfect game and put into a different temperature controlled environment and it can start immediately. Many of us use steamed controlled humidifiers on our main HVAC units to control exact humidity year round but still no fool proof way to prevent. As depends what the previous environments are. I won’t buy games from high humidity climates because Colorado is dry and they will plank. Safe cracker is the only WPC 95 game in your collection.

Inserts on WPC games can ghost. CV is infamous for it, for example.

A single crack line doesn't mean the playfield is planked. It could just be a manufacturing defect. I've seen it on a few games before, and the playfields were fine.

It is for congratulating on a new game people are excited about.

Congrats on your new game and I hope you enjoy it! Nice score!
