I brought home this.....
This is a Cirqus Voltaire #65 sample game 2009 HEP restore. This is the game that is featured on IPDB as the sample game. She is a beauty and will fit in well with my other 5 games. I plan to TUNE her up with a little ProSound and ColorDMD!

nice pickup. I'd love to have a hotline

Many moons ago, my dad picked up an old Hot Line and had it sitting around for years. This was prior to my pinball interest kicking into high gear, and I sadly didn't try to bring that old EM back to life. I think he gave it away to someone years ago. I have regrets....

We all have one of those regret pins out there, but that’s the Hobby of Pinball! Wish you were closer, I’d give you this pin for what I paid for it. But not before we played it for a case of Beer.

I'm psyched, but I'll have to behave myself and restore it before I can really play it...

Thanks so much blondetall for the very nice example of Twin Win! Super easy to deal with and smooth transaction. Top notch Pinsider! I promise I’ll take care of her!

Played it last night and had a ball. Can’t wait to learn more about EMs.

Hello everyone! I brought home my first machine the other day. It's one most of you are probably familiar with but it was brand new to me. I never really got into pinball when I was a kid, I was a little young for it in the 90's. A friend of a friend was giving it away!! Lucky me! It has 70,971 plays on it and has spent the last 2 decades or so in someones home.

The paint on the cabinet is a little rough but the playfield and backglass are beautiful, I think. And it plays great! I've noticed the swinging target takes a little time to "warm up" before it swings all the way back and forth, i'm not sure if they're all like that. But once it's been on for a few plays it has a much larger range of motion.

Mine doesn't seem to be wired for a conservative mode, unless that's selected by open circuit. And the liberal and medium appear wired together? Maybe I'm misunderstanding it. But we'll cross that bridge if I start breaking 200,000 points on the regular in 3 ball mode. And the number match function I don't fully understand, is it supposed to light up one set of numbers every game? or just every few games? Maybe I have some light bulbs burnt out, but it only occasionally lights up a score to match so I haven't been able to test if it's working.

I'm really looking forward to getting into this wonderful hobby. It's been great fun to play so far and even just the few hours I spent with it last night I've seen my scores and skills improve. Those drop catches to flip up to the "ramp" are tough!!

Awesome! I will do that. I would like to get a machine with more cool features like a multi level play field, multiple ramps, multi ball, etc. The swinging target on this one really spices it up and I bet some of the other features are great too.

Nice pickup, I remember playing this game when it first came out on location!! The 70's were fun times.
Your match does come up at the end of every game, so you probably have some bulbs burned out.
Enjoy...

I think you failed to mention the luckiest part... from looking at the pictures, it would seem that 70,371 of those plays were in the first 8 years and the remainder (I’ll leave the math to the reader) were in the last 12 years!!

Documented HUO POTC built in January of 2007 and purchased in February 2007. Played a whopping 63 times while in the original owners basement.

This is the second time in 11 years the legs have been put on!

I didn't have access to a truck today,so Colsond3 who sold me the machine,dropped the machine off at my house today.It works,and I'm going to use it so that I can practice working on pinball machines. He also helped me carry it up to my second floor,and then he set it up for me! He practically gave it to me for $180.00 delivered.
I think when I done fixing it up,I'll be able to sell it for $5000.00

Had a roadtrip yesterday with a friend and Picked up a once routed TWD. Have some cleaning to do but cabinet was near perfect and should clean up OK.

A pin of my favorite TVseries. Always nice

Only hope the false start doesn’t represent the future. On the second test play at home the hinge of the well walker broke off

Looks like your new Walking Dead has had quite a few plays.....or more likely your well walker has been bashed to death!
