Forgot the truck pic, but setting it up when it got in. Local pickup from a great seller! Our first Spooky! Amazing game!

That is a good looking pinball. I was holding out for a new TNA run but I might have to buy this one....Let us know what you think after playing...

Quoted from Colsond3:

Damn! I knew someone would snag that quick. Congrats on that pick up. Did you beat his high score and get 50 bucks off?

Nah, but he is a great guy! We talked pinball for a very long time. Love this hobby!

Well, these guys made the rounds on the Pinside marketplace a couple months ago. One and a half project Pinbot machines, originally acquired in a dark alley deal and passed between multiple Pinsiders who elected against struggling through repair and resurrection, have finally fallen into my possession.

IMG_20190922_125006_01 (resized).jpg

They now sit in the back workshop space of the Collective, essentially bringing the total games in our shared space up to 17.

The parts machine has a sticker on the front, labeling it "NOT FOR SALE." Above that is written "SOLD." We're still trying to wrap our heads around that.

You’ll be waiting awhile for new, I’m pretty sure they’re out of production (unless they start the line again). You see TNAs on the secondary market often.

Not a pinball but, less $ and great head to head competition.

Picked up a nice Gridiron.Ray from wide area repair got it going and added hot flipper coils to make the vari target shots.Great play field and back glass on this one.

PF and BG on your Gridiron looks pretty nice. How's it play?

Playfield is super smoothe,and with the hot coils the game is a lot of fun,especially with 2 people.Its fast and real playable.

I was on pinside vacation when Robert sent me this one with an NOS Bally playfield installed, and I haven't taken many pics and never posted anything about it in this thread.

Better late than never, I guess.

Replaces ACDC Luci that I had since July 2014 (2300 games later).

Thanks!

Relatively rare Bally from that era. 1850 units made. Great layout. Needs rules to be set at max tough so replays aren't a gimme. Plays crickets.

All in all though, looks great in my living room. We like the sounds too, especially the crickets.

Yep... Fortunately the plan is they stop here! Looking to build the best stock machine we can out of both of them, and then see how much it would cost to build the second one out of repro parts.

Torpedo Alley is a phenomenal and criminally underrated game.
The posts are color coded on this game and they didn’t come like that from the factory, it almost looks like the one from TNT they did awhile ago.

Those caves look MINT and that NEVER happens, condition of this game is pretty stellar.

Ahhh, thank you for the kind words. I'll have to look into the posts. The caves aren't perfect but I think they are pretty good. A question I had, do you know if the center targets are supposed to be translucent blue or solid blue? These are solid blue but the rest of the targets are translucent. Thanks

Here’s the club, I own one, mine is beat to hell but the targets are translucent blue. I don’t think they’re available anymore

Great pick up, an awesome quirky game. The watermelon shooter rod on yours is an “upgrade” though. Damn I miss that game. I’d love to grab another one some day.

Oh yea, the watermelon shooter is funny! The only real thing wrong with the game was that it was missing the shooter rod. The Watermelon I had laying around from a large lot of arts I bought. Must have been used on a WNBJM

Watermelon shooter rod, you say? Here's the first one ever, which I designed for my home-grown EM Whoa Nellie (which will be up for sale shortly).

I’m seeing double....another HH.

Actually, this is my old one that I sold two years ago...coming back for a second ass whoopin.

Didn’t expect him to call or be selling it, so I’ll be listing the other one I just bought home a few weeks ago (on the right in pic). No need for two. It needs an MPU and the backglass was totally shot, other than that it’s pretty nice. I threw a BG in it that I had hanging on the wall. Better than nothing, but it does have some decent flaking at the bottom.

I got this well-traveled pin, all the way from Spain to Arizona, from a really nice Pinsider in Sierra Vista, Arizona. We went to lunch and I enjoyed talking pinball with him. He, like me is a Williams fan and I got to play Blackout for the first time - great pin! Thanks John for a wonderful pinball afternoon. And I got to bring a unique pin home with me to boot!

Rio was made by Playmatic in Spain, as I mentioned, and will make a nice addition to my collection. It has many unique features. As with most Playmatics, the playfield is nearly perfect as is the backglass.

DSCF4527 (resized).JPG

I would like to route it. I hope my customers will appreciate Rio for it's overseas roots and different play. My only concern is finding parts for it. I've never seen some of these parts before. I don't even know what to call some of them! Check out these unique stand-up targets and rubber do-dads:

1st_day_targets (resized).jpg

DSCF4525 (resized).JPG

The 'captive ball maze', too, is unique. You must hit the rubber do-dad with the pinball behind it to advance it to the next captive ball position. (The captive ball is hiding at the top of the maze in the above picture because the cabinet is on end. But when the game is set up on it's legs, it is behind one of the rubber do-dads.) The pop bumper caps are one-of-kind too. I've never been a fan of the square design. Maybe they will grow on me. But, for now, the fact that they are so different from the typical pop bumper caps make them a good addition to any collection.

Rio was made in 1977 when the industry was converting from Electro-Mechanical to Solid State. This pin is a hybrid, one of the rare machines with all EM parts except for the sound. An electronic sound card is used in place of the standard chimes, another feature that sets this game apart from the standard fare at the time. I have never heard the sounds produced by this sound card, but I have seen the schematics and the board is very simple with sounds (simple tones?) for 100, 1000 and 10,000 points.

Regarding my collection: Light Speed -> Ridiculous Speed -> Ludicrous Speed -> I've gone to plaid!!

I passed my Playmatic Last Lap Project on to my league friend, but it was only a year later in ‘78 and was one of those weird EM Hybrids. It had a HUGE row of 12 jones plugs and relays jumping into the circuit boards
The parts are unobtainium for these games (at least stateside) mine had a huge bag of broken parts with it probably for reference in case the next guy wants to make his own replacements.
