Picked up a 1966 Williams Top Hand this afternoon. Needs a little inside attention to fix but it plays.

Joined the WOF owners club today! Unpacking a new pin is such a great feeling.

I love visiting this thread.

That is so cool and ironic hazmat7719. We call our daughter Miss O many times and saw one on Marketplace last night. Had never heard of it before but now we will be looking for one.

I have a love-hate relationship with this thread. I love seeing folks bring new machines into their homes. I hate knowing that if I did, I'd be in the dog house. Ugh!

Thank you sir - best of luck on your search. Not sure why most of the Jokerz show quite a bit of use and wear. For a game that gets some of the least love around here, it sure got played a lot on route! One more pic of John Youssi's art - a shot of the new plastics set I added to my Jokerz ...

I picked up this non working gladiators yesterday. About 5 minutes from my house. The previous owner said it was taken apart to move and they got a plug from the power supply and the driver board switched up. Said it blew a huge puff of smoke and then wouldn’t work when they switched them back. The ribbon cable between the driver and mpu is fried so this should be interesting. I don’t know much about gottlieb machines so hopefully some of you system 3 gurus can help me out when I start the repair thread. Other than that it looks like it will clean up ok.

Looks to be in very good condition. Repair, clean up, etc and will be a very nice game.

Well I took a nose dive and brought this home today. I’m sure I’m in the minority and will of course crumble to pinside criticism and ditch it 30 seconds from now but for the time being once I get it unloaded it’s mine

Not a pinball machine, but I have been looking for one of these quite a while. It adds a nice feeling to the whole game room. And its also a nice piggy bank to save for new pins and parts

Congratulations on your Houdini acquisition! I also took the plunge a few months ago. I'll even admit to trading a Dialed In LE toward a NIB Houdini plus cash. I believe that Houdini is one of, if not the best looking pinball machine ever made. The art package is just incredible. I often see criticism of the Photoshop/clip art that Stern is often guilty of, and American did such a great job with the cabinet and playfield. The art is original and beautiful. I often enjoyed just looking at that pin when I owned it. Yes, I found it to be very tight and unforgiving, but I also posted a top-10 score (at one time). Looks like I'm still #8 for those scores that are actually posted! Woohoo! You can get in "the zone," on this game, like you can on others. It just takes a bit of patience. This game features some incredible engineering and creative shot placement. Had this pin been a widebody, with just 1/4 inch more devoted to each shot, it may have been a masterpiece. I'm not being critical about your new pin, I think this game brings ALOT to the table. Every collection needs a really challenging pin, and this one happens to be stunning to look at! I love the mods for it too. The planchet, Ouija board and Houdini show poster are fantastic!

I still find myself looking for deals on these. I would own one again, and I miss having it in my collection! Congrats.

The pre-production backglasses had different positioning on the score windows. This one may have been a custom? Either way - I like the pre-production artwork much better. Nice find!

We just got a NIB Star Trek Vault Premium (built November 2018) to play alongside our Deadpool Pro and X-Men: LE (Magneto). We love it! Our home arcade is growing, though adding any more will require some *serious* furniture tetris or a remodel.

No this was not on eBay. Came from a private seller that I've dealt with in the past.

Looks like it might have been a vendor/op tag of some sort.

I found one of those on a Hurricane I had last year.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/socal-pinsiders-what-are-these-markings#post-3876140

According to a couple of SoCal locals, the tags were used by Family Amusement Center of Los Angeles. It was a company that operated games in the LA area.

Thanks for that info! Seller said the two games I had gotten from him both originally came from West coast. The other game I'd gotten (Diner Diamondplate game #63) did not have any tags or stickers on it.
