Quoted from Scotty_K:

Brought this home for the Missus as a Christmas gift last night. It's not a pin, but it IS a machine...

I was looking at this, only because of the theme really. Dean was The Man!

Got a call for an unknown pin lingering in a house yesterday. Forced me to jump back in the game earlier today after some unexpected surgery and recovery last week.

No pics...but I took the ride. Then this thing magically appeared in my car. I can’t seem to escape this title (which I don’t mind).

Quoted from Scotty_K:

To be honest, I've never really been all that interested in slots myself; as I said, this is for the wife, who loves them. If it keeps her happy ("Happy wife, happy life."), then perhaps she'll leave me alone when I'm working on my pins. Besides, it was a bargain that I couldn't pass up.
The other benefit of this particular slot is that if you get tired of the theme, you can always get the software for other games and load it in.

All I've ever been able to find/come across are single line or 3 line slot bandits and they become stale very quickly. I'd love to find a newer game like the ones we play at the casinos that have multiple lines and multiple bonus games.

Winter project arrived today. Can't wait to tear into this old girl.

Unexpected surgery doesn't sound like a good thing but you jumping back into the fray seems like a sure sign that you've recovered. I think most of us were thinking we were going to have to do a wellness check on you to make sure you were ok. Glad to see you back at it and I'm hoping you make a full recovery and that you'll never need any type of surgery again, especially the "unexpected" type.

So you conjured up some courage to take the ride and presto, you scored!

Not fully recovered and still feel a little crappy, but I can only take laying around for so long. Was looking forward to Pincinnati but couldn’t make the trip, so that sucks. Thanks though...I do appreciate the concern.

Today has been great. Hit the road at 4:30am to head to Pincinnati, met a way cool pinsider, and grabbed a SLAMMING deal on this beauty. Just over 2,000 original plays. Never saw the inside of an arcade a day of it’s life. Might be the nicest Pinball Magic on planet Earth. A rare find for a game that’s already hard to find.

Bonus: A modern game does indeed fit in the 2017-current Mazda CX-5

Not quite, but good guess! Special Force has joined our ranks, and we're glad to have it on the squad - at least, once we fix the rusty rails and dead flipper.

Picked it up for dirt cheap, with the seller even suggesting a retheme. I'm not going to do anything quite that extreme - the good parts of the circuitry will remain, as will the playfield - but custom cab art (most likely in a custom cab) is likely in this game's future.

Real bulb sockets, Williams flippers, and Comet sunlight bulbs are also in this game's future.

IMG_20191122_170332500 (resized).jpg

At right: the Firepower that I picked up two weeks ago, for even cheaper, and forgot to post in this thread.

I feel for you, bro.

Had a procedure myself just over a month ago and missed Pinball Madness because of it. But no matter -- I'll make up for it at INDISC in January.

Hope you're doing well otherwise and heal up fast.

Snagged what I assumed were going to just be parts when I saw the post but this Black Jack is pretty damn nice, I might have to save it. Unfortunately the guy was converting games to Virtual Pins until his wife said enough! The head on Black Jack got run over by a sander and brushed on primer Will need to stencil the art back on and remount the boards. Harlem Globtrotters cab is now a VP but the playfield is totally populated and I got those boards with the lot too, which look pretty decent/repairable.

Anyways, anyone have a backglass for Black Jack laying around? Didn’t come with. I know bgresto is an option but dang those are pricey. I’ll have to get some stencils for the head too.

Congrats! Love my Pinball Magic. Although, it makes me cringe to see it on it's side like that .

You do what you gotta do though. Enjoy the machine!

Quoted from SilverUnicorn:

Yea.... same. But it wouldn’t fit in my vehicle any other way. It was either fit it in sideways, or bust. And I wasn’t driving 10 hours back home empty handed.

Fear not, though. The thing is well supported and wrapped up super tight on both pallet wrap and moving blankets.

Quoted from play_pinball:

Which version, EM or SS? They made both, but only 120 EM.

I have a real nice SS version.

There was one at the York show. I think it was a nice one. Good chance there was something posted about it in the York thread. I only remember because I brought a Black Jack for freeplay/sale.

Searched for ya...

NOS no less. Hopefully he still has it. Looks like there was a 2nd one too. Good luck!

#14179 2 years ago

Bought the game about 2 years ago in a package deal with my #Whirlwind but it has been in storage at family all this time. Today was the day it finally came home! #Lost World is not one of the prettiest (although it has a beautiful backglass) or most fun games, but most certainly a fun project!

Thanks! It’s the SS version (or it will be once the boards get back in there!)

This is my very first pinball machine! Purchased this about a week and a half ago. Just got delivered to me and set up today by Chris Fox who was very nice. This was a machine that was in SoCal while I lived in the Bay Area. Funny coincidence was he had to deliver another pinball machine to someone who lived 10-15 minutes away from where I live.I believe they also bought from the same seller, since the seller mentioned another pinball he was selling was also being picked up to be delivered to someone in the Bay Area. Definitely played a couple of games on it once it was turned on and ready to go!

Oh so you're the stop he made before mine! He told me he ended up being a bit late because he forgot to give you the legs for the machine. Said it was pretty lucky you were nearby to just drive back and give it.

Hypeball looked pretty good..

Picked up this 1975 Bally Hi-Deal yesterday. Was non-working but after a few tweaks it's playing pretty good. I'll probably tune it up after Thankgsiving.
