USE THA FLIPPAH!! Not a favorite title by most, but I've got a soft spot for most of the system 3 titles.

Got this from my buddy who was the second owner. He only had it for a week and a half then decided to get something different. The game only had 900ish plays on it.

congrats! Such a great an under rated game!

I bought one a few years ago thinking I would only have it to fit that special spot in the game room that does not fit a standard pin. One of my favorite DMDs to this day.

Just brought these two home, does that make me a degenerate gambler? My first double pick-up and it also brings my collection into double digits.

Picked up part of a Skylab today, freebie on the side of the road. Guess it's a consolation prize for missing out on a Pharaoh this weekend. No head, so not sure what to do with it. Suggestions are welcome, thanks. Started a thread here...

I picked up a Jacks Open last week. Like normal it doesn’t work and needs some love, but should be fun.

Not a pin ... but a beautiful part of one!

Thx to markpin2013 for helping me connect on this near perfect Playmatic Black Fever backglass.
Amazing ink job including silver glitter - so well done
I got the head box as well

Bought a jackbot completely blind (seller sent me one picture of the machine wrapped and on its back in his garage). Had a friend pick it up and when he dropped it off, he noticed all of the backbox boards were red. I haven’t looked underneath the playfield, but this might be a prototype?

It’s a nice machine. In fact ALL Playmatic’s are nice. I’m on the hunt for a Playmatic Magic.

I picked up the final boss of all projects. TZ is my one and only holiest of grail pins. This one is ugly, dirty, bent, broken, and incomplete, but its mine. I will likely spend over a year restoring this game but it will be worth it in the end.

It is VERY incomplete and so I will be looking for a lot of parts. If anyone has spare parts (especially boards) and would like to see this game get brought back to life please send me a PM, I'm still working on a complete list of what it needs.

Looks plug & play to me.

You definitely have your work cut out for you. But I agree…in the end it will all be worth it. Hopefully you got it for a decent price given what you’ll have to put into it. Congrats on the grail!

Jumping Jack yesterday... Jungle Queen, Sheriff, and Big Day today.

So many EM’s, so little room.

You’re out of control. Bring some to York. I’ll free up some space for you.

Was going with a pro right up till the end. So far so good. I think the music fits the pin. Upgraded the sound system right away.

I went up today to visit my Scottsdale Project Pin Guy to pick up the third of three Williams horsie games, a second Williams Hayburners II.

day_1_full_playfield_and friend (resized).jpg

I couldn't resist a Bally EM with multi-ball, zipper flippers and skill shot that he had. I always wanted a Fireball EM. I played one in 1975 and still consider it the best EM ever made. But no way was I going to add a Bally Fireball to Pecos' Palatial Pinball Parlour. The price is prohibitive.

Thanks to the Scottsdale Project Pin Guy I was able to bring this one home. It's not Fireball but I am just as happy to be getting it! And it is a real beauty! I'm not sure if this 'very special' game will be going on route. If it does, it will have to be in a secure location where it won't be walking off and with the least amount of abuse. No bars or pubs for Four Million B.C.!

This completes the Bally EMs that I want in my collection - Old Chicago, Wizard!, Double-Up and now Four Million B.C.. What a great line-up! I am so fortunate to have these and I have so many people to thank. Thank you all! I will do my best to bring these classic Bally EMs back to their former glory so today's young pinball players can get a chance to live the joy that some of us older farts have been fortunate enough to experience.

No coin door lock? Nice pick up. Love the color scheme on 6MDM.

No lock so it was swung open in the pic. Backglass, playfield and cab were all really nice - just the typical battery corrosion on the mpu.

Yeah, we’ve all been there. Haha. Sometimes I even pull over on the side of the road to wedge something in there because halfway into the drive I get sick of it flapping open and pushing it shut again.

I drove 300 miles with a coin door flapping open and shut inside my suv. I bought some 7/8” locks and placed them inside my toolbox. It’ll take less than a minute to install a new coin door lock and then I won’t have to listen to it flap open and shut all the way home after buying my next pin

Brought her home a few weeks ago. Added brass lockdown bar, brass side rails, replated the three wireforms in brass. Cleaned up 90%. Still have to remove upper mini playfield to clean under, add diode cliffy protector, and get my biplane back (sent out to be painted and modded to add working propeller). I love this machine.
