My son (age 1) scored his first pin today! The rules are really shallow, but the playfield is clean and it has very low plays on it. He’s gotta start somewhere!
We got a NIB Star Trek Pro (Happily Unexpected Final Voyage) delivered on Friday. Then finished (for now) our collection with our final wishlist pin and picked up a Terminator 2 on Monday after seeing it up for sale locally on Sunday morning. Now realizing 3 of our 5 pins are designed by Steve Ritchie… we might have a “type”.
Quoted from Colsond3:
Nice! I’ve never seen one of those in person before.
Feel free to stop by next time you're up this way.
Quoted from newovad:
I was going to ask if you bought Berk's off of eBay but I see that it is still listed. Definitely a rare bird.
This was Brad's (pinballnut) machine. Came all the way from CA. I looked into Berk's before he put it on ebay. Brad's had a nicer cab and better initial price, so I didn't make an offer on his.
Loving the game so far, lots going on. Not sure what some of the callouts are saying. "Hang on to the meatball"?
I picked up a nice Christmas present to myself with a good friend...he seems shocked!
Brought 4 projects home today. Might have bitten off more than I can chew on one or two of them. Should keep me busy for a while.
I was looking through FB Marketplace the other day and saw an ad for a foosball table. Not interested in it, but saw a T2 in the background of the pic. Sent a PM and asked if the T2 was for sale. He said he was going to give it to his daughter but I could make an offer. He said it wasn’t working (lit up but wouldn’t start).
He sent me a few pics, I gave him an offer, and I decided to make the 4 hour round trip. I got there. Dead batteries was it. The right sling has some minor issues but other than that, operational as is. Playfield is very dirty but zero wear upon initial inspection. Cabinet is excellent with no fade. He said the game came with the house and has sat in the gameroom without working for 5 years. I couldn’t believe it. This will clean up great.
One of the best “surprise” finds I’ve had. Always pays to ask!! Will post some pics when it’s done.
What and unbelievable find and story - congratulations! And I LOVE the skeleton in the phone booth in the background!
Thanks all. Just started a quick cleaning to see the playfield. Even better than I thought.
