Quoted from Colsond3:

Edited my post with the direct Laseriffic link...I've seen quite a few BSD toppers that were done well. Still haven't grabbed one myself. Sounds like an item for the ol' list for St. Nick!

Like you need more pins....

Glad to see you were able to grab one, usually they are priced pretty high; I'm sure yioiu will have it purring like a kitten

Hi Chuck... shop job in progress... it’s a nice game, not perfect... it’s coming to Allentown for sure!

Quoted from RWH:

Hell no you are not being unreasonable. I would contact them and get it corrected or ask them to discount what you paid!

Quoted from JethroP:

I totally agree with RWH. The place or person you purchased from is someone I would never want to do business with. I suggest you protect your fellow Pinsider's from getting screwed in the future and post the company/person's name who lied to you.

Thanks for the replys. I've sent the shop I bought it off an email asking them to address the problems, so I'll see what they say. Depending on the response I may put the name of the shop up here to warn other Pinsiders but for now I am giving them the benefit of the doubt that it may have been an over sight. I will say it was for one off the bigger sellers of pinball machines in Melbourne, Australia, so don't just assume everything should be ok because it is a big place with distribution deals for some major bands.

I guess the lesson to be learned here is check over the machine properly when you pick it up. We got there close to closing time so packed it up quickly as to not hold up the staff - big mistake on our behalf.

I meant the topper! BSD is in and never leaving my line up. Besides...one can never have enough games, right?

I like this one too...

Nice topper - but that fish tank is too big - it will never fit on the head of that game.

Magneto has arrived! #115 of 250. Unboxed today and placed in basement with help from another Pinsider. Thanks, Adam! A pop bumper was firing over and over randomly, but I discovered the leaf switch gap was way too close on that pop (basically touching) so it kept firing repeatedly. I improved the gap slightly and it works fine now.

I replaced some of the cold red, white and blue LEDs with some softer, color-matching LEDs and it looks great. I also replaced the lamp bulb that shines on Magneto with a regular Titan 6.3v wedge without realizing it's a 13v flasher. When I plugged it in, it was an incredibly bright white light. I was very happy with it. A few minutes later, I smelled that hot smell of electricity and melted plastic. I cooked the bulb, and when I pulled it out with needle nose pliers, it was totally melted and half of it came off. Fortunately, I unplugged it, let it cool, and the rest of the destroyed 6.3v came out. I replaced the original bulb and, although still too dim, it works fine. I didn't fry anything except that bulb I melted. Yikes. I won't forget to match the bulbs carefully next time.

Tomorrow a new DMD and Tilt Graphics blades...then to figure out the Wolverine captive ball mod! Thrilled to have an X-Men finally.

A little more distance between the Marvel and DC games would be helpful. Like the quality and flow of their respective movie franchises.

Congrats on the NIB...great purchase. And a metal stool would be more fitting

BMX. Found out about this pin several years ago, tried to find one... nope. Now a few days ago find out a friend has one and picked it up from him. Back glass is about perfect, no flaking. Works decent, but needs TLC.

I believe thats a late 70's rabbit pick up. Cool pin hauler! I used to be WAY into VWs.

#10421 12 days ago

That's definetly an Early Solid State in pinball terms as far as Cars go. I'd bet 99% of Rabbits were made into beer cans or other functional products when they died. I didn't even know the Rabbit came in a pick up configuration.

#10422 12 days ago

That is a VW mk1 "Caddy", a FWD truck. This one is a diesel... and with a working fuel gauge no less.

Nice score! If you ever decide to sell or want to trade please LMK. I missed one a few years back that left WI for one of the dakotas... still want to find one since i used to bmx as a kid and would go perfet next to radical.

Brought home my first pin today. Bought this LOTR Pro from wonderful pinball collector and restorer in the Seattle/Tacoma area.

This machine has a lot of mods installed by the previous owner. From the Craigslist ad:

Pingraffix pinblades, special pinball life flipper coils, ColorDMD, shaker motor installed, shire decal, PDI target decal set, palantir color changing LED, Mind Orbits color changing shooter rod, Path of the Dead figures added, NVram installed, no batteries needed, some LEDs installed. Playfield in good condition, some wear on cabinet. Never been on location, I am the 3rd owner. Has manual and a few extra parts included. Game plays and works great.

While not an LE, it does have a signed card from George Gomez.

So excited!!!!

It was. He said he got quite a few PM’s trying to start a bidding war, but luckily I know Bill and he doesn’t partake in such reindeer games.

Haha...I do have a spare bedroom. PDF the paperwork to me via email.

It’s a modest game room, I can’t even fit all of my pins in there. Looking to upgrade. I’ll throw up a pic later.

Wish I knew you were looking for one. I just acquired a pair of Electra's still in the trailer from the Delaware deal last month. Will unload her this month and post pictures.

I’m never actually looking for games

My wishlist is available for all to see. LOL. Elektra has been on it, but most of the ones I come across usually have blown out upper playfields, bad BG’s, and are non-working or have other major cosmetic issues. This one is very nice, but I’m a little over my limit with games. Just a little...

Did you get that Magic cabinet yet? I’ll swing up and grab the head.

Going to start up with the Staten Island runs early next year, still plenty there maybe I over looked the body. Have one more run to Delaware also. I believe there are some nos lower playfields for the Elektras there.

You couldn't choose a better first pin, in my opinion. Valuable, sought-after pin is well made, (just look at the team of all-stars who had a hand in making this one!) and has few, if any, flaws. Artwork, code, shot selection, sound, you name it. Fun to mod, and trying to destroy the ring or advance to TABA or the elusive Valinor never gets old. I traded this pin once, and months later found another perfect one. I won't part with this one anytime soon. If I could only own one pin, I would very likely choose LOTR. Congrats to you! Now watch your collection multiply like Gremlins...

Those sure look like Williams legs on that thing. Or maybe they just got painted red. Should be cream color. Same as the coin door.

I had one in similar condition. There seem to be a few low play Universes out there.

Congrats!
