Thanks to bigdaddy1, I brought home the game that first really got me into pinball.

And, wow, was it packed well!

picked up these four in the last few weeks.

Nice line up. Out of the four in the photo, how do you rank them? I have ACNC, MET and several others. On the fence b/w DP or IMDN

I have DP and IMDN and they are both grate games. It all comes down to personal preference no clear winner between the two.

Just "stole" an above average overall condition 1986 Grand Lizard for $100.00. Guy wanted it gone. Only glaring issue is that the solenoids are not firing. Planning to flip it.

Picked up two pinball tables from fellow pinsiders in Columbus. I got revenge from Mars, and my dad got no fear. It was kind of a challenge getting the two of them in there because of the head box on revenge from Mars, hence why my dad is sitting in the back (the head box for revenge from Mars called shotgun). But look how happy he still is to be going home with a great pin

Please excuse the messy garage. I Just picked this up yesterday evening. Was a price I couldn’t say no to, and I think my kids will really enjoy it. It plays great, minus the accelerator at the moment. I’ll have to take a better look at that this week.

If you need them, PBR has the rubbers for the accelerator, I have heard people using rebound bumpers with success as well. Making sure the ramp is lined up proper will ensure a good hit. Great game if you like drop targets! I traded mine for a DE Secret Service.

Sold my E/M machine, Night Rider, and replaced it with Addams Family. Just a slightly better machine (ha ha)! So far we love it and PO put several mods in it. I may add more for the fun of it.

This is why I customarily don’t take breaks from work. Next thing you know, I’m breaking out the ratchet set. Shout out to mbaumle for the assist.

Best thread on Pinside!

#14424 2 years ago
Quoted from Dallas_Pin:

Thanks. I think Iron Maiden is one of the best games Stern has ever made, and even better than the more lauded Jurassic Park of this year. With four flippers, multiple orbits, two captive balls, two ball locks (on the prem/le), and modes with clear objectives, there's a lot to do and different ways to go about it, no two games feel quite the same. Metallica and ACNC you know about. Deadpool is excellent as well. It has a very fast, full-table flow (esp. on the prem/le with the left orbit-to-right flipper return), combined with the rapid fire humor, it's fun, fast, and in your face.

I've been a critic of some of Stern's recent mediocre efforts, but in between those cookie cutters they've made some real gems, and IMDN and DP are two of them. I played them both extensively on location first before buying them for the home, so I'm not just under the honeymoon glow here. Feel free to PM me if you have more specific questions.

Quoted from nascarrey:

Best thread on Pinside!

It really is. People out there scooping up old and new classics, restoration jobs, local bargains, obscure oddballs, and everyone smiling ear to ear. This is what it's all about.

#14426 2 years ago
Quoted from VALIS666:

IMDN and DP are two of them

I appreciate it! I figured we have some similar machines so we have close to the same taste, lol. I’ve played both in the wild multiple times but only have room for “just one more” until TPF. Thank you!

Those are great looking pins and the rug is killer. I hope to be able to play one some day.

If I'm ever going to be your way I will take you up on that! I'd love to put a few on one.

#14431 2 years ago

So Jealous, that machine right there is why I came back to buying pins. Was very let down on how that turned out. (Followed by Alien)

I have to ask though, are people just sitting on these to flip? How are there still NiB sitting around?

Not 100% home yet. I watched this Bally 1964 2 in 1 when it was on eBay but could not reach a deal with the seller. The seller then placed it on an online auction site in Columbus and I was able to win the bid. The better half would shoot me for this so I stashed the cabinet at work til the coast is clear but the backbox was an easy early morning transfer to the basement where it has blended with the rest of the herd. BGresto has done this glass before so that will solve the fade issue.

You look very excited!!!

#14440 2 years ago

That's fair and somewhat true. I'm always somewhat excited to bring home a new machine, but this ones more for my friends and family. I'm not sure how exciting winning your own quarters back can be. Still it fits perfectly in the only space I have left and I think my kids will get a kick out of it for a little while anyway.

Never ever pass up a good deal!

Is that some kind of sample game? I've never seen that cabinet scheme before.

Looks like someone painted it white. Usually a orange colored head and blue cabinet on countdown

#14445 2 years ago

blue cab with white rocket, head is blue too, but glass frame is the orange (red?) would be almost total reversal of a paint job. weird, I definitely like the 'normal' better

I’m betting it’s a sample. Looks too good not to be factory painted.

Had a Count-Down but do like look of the white background.

And older paint with patina too. Just might be a sample or factory proto. Maybe look for serial numbers or identifiers on the head and cabinet ?

That looks like a factory paint job.
