Quoted from dirkdiggler:

Congrats man on such a fun, cool looking pin. I was going to ask if that was Dan's but I see his couch and floor in the pic. How's Mandolorian LE?

Yes, from Dan, 214 plays on the IMDN LE, beautiful game!

I played a couple games on the Mandalorian LE, seemed really good. I thought the mini playfield would be easy, Not! I hear the Pro is at the Casino, so I want go try it too.

Wish they were all mine. Well, they will be for a while at least… 3 on loan from a good friend for a big tourney coming up at my place end of August.

The fourth is all mine and one of only 2 (that I know of) Fish Tales with a direct-print clear-coated cabinet. A thing of beauty and was the prototype for the butter cabinet that Spooky now supplies as an option.

Red "wings" and no center triangle on the light box front graphics. Some have blue "wings", and if there's a triangle, it's the opposite color of the wings. The order of the red and blue cross hatches is also different, depending on the color of the wings.
But I digress. Congratulations on getting that beauty. It's a title that's close to my heart.

Must be a bro/cousin to my old Sky-Line! Same elevator doors!

#21109 76 days ago
Quoted from northerndude:

Yes. Both games have this animation feature in common.
Oddly, although "Sky Line" is earlier, the sample games had green elevator doors, but the regular production games had silver blue doors. "Subway", and "Cross Town" came out later, but have green subway doors.

Forgot to post my pre-Pinfest pickup! Woulda bought some projects at the flea market if my car wasn’t totally jammed full!

Picked up Caveman from LBJ after something near 3 years after we agreed to the deal!

Also got my Target Alpha head from 890khz delivered to Pinfest by zerbam! Thanks so much to everyone who made this happen!

New to Pinside and pinball ownership! Long time dream.

Bought a house furnished, including the Bally pinballs that were in the basement!
Vector Bally 1982
Supersonic Bally 1979
Mystic Bally 1980

Some problems with all of them, we have some work to do. Busy reading up on how to shop them and diagnose issues.
Will be posting over in the Bally/Williams room to start getting help working through details and learning from everyone here.

Pinwiki is a great resource. Read the first pinball machine section, then read the section for your era of pins. If pinwiki doesn’t solve your problem open a forum here on Pinside in the tech repair section. Lots of helpful people here.

Had a customer bring in 2 Gottlieb Touchdowns, one complete and another parts. He wanted to know how much it'd be to get one working and shopped out.

Well, he didn't care for the quote and decided to leave the machines in my hands in exchange for waving the diagnostic fee.

Sure Touchdown ain't the highest rated game, but I won't shy away from a (somewhat) free game.

(Plus that parts machine will go to help a Genesis and El Dorado in need)

Import game? Narrow coin door.

Quoted from gdonovan:

I think it's just the coindoor all Touchdowns came with. If I recall the history right, it was the first game produced at the Premier factory, so they might've had a stock of narrow doors left over from Mylstar and decided to use them up.

Love the football field cabinet. Now you have options with both games.

#21129 74 days ago
Quoted from gdonovan:

It does have the typical plexi route display piece on the right side of the cab that many euro games had on them. Can’t comment on the coin door but that plexi piece is a telltale that its a reimport.

Great trade. Nothing wrong with Stranger Things, but LOTR was Stern’s GOAT for years and still rocks. Great code, and Valinor is a legendary deep challenge. Enjoy and congrats.

Oh I’ve had it before. The gf is really enjoying pinball and she tried LOTR at a friend’s and really enjoyed it so that’s why it’s back in the small lineup.

#21143 72 days ago

I was convinced this was going to fall through but it all worked out great. Left flipper wasn't working but a new coil fixed it. Too bad we lost the feature lamps in the process. The rectifier board is hacked and looks like crap (not surprised) so we'll swap in an xpin and then see where we are on those feature lamps.

Ultimately it's going to become a Quicksilver someday because the cab is horribly painted and the backglass is crap. In the meantime I left it at a friend's so he can play it.

Finally got to say I picked up a game locally. The backglass and playfield on these Sonic games must be made out of Magic.

When I picked up my Who Dunnit last week, the seller mentioned he was going to imminently sell his Creature as well. Told me he would either post it on CL or give me a day to sleep on a killer deal. Took all of a few hours to think about it, and today it came home. Top 3 dream pin for me; super stoked!

Random thoughts this morning from helping yesterday with the Galaxy acquisition... I told my friend I didn't have time to bring any EMs back to life (and I don't fix pop machines!) but that I would help him to clear space by selling off some of what he had spent gobs of money accumulating before he let me start guiding him--lol.

Gottlieb Skill Pool - two complete cabinets, three playfields, one brand new backglass and set of plastics (both cabs have complete set of pool balls)

Gottlieb Surf Side - complete, some flaking on BG but decent overall

Williams Doodle Bug custom painted Beetles retheme project - probably not worth much more than random parts/mechs and for a solid cabinet to do something else with -- IMO

Gottlieb Continental Cafe - complete, backglass okay but not great, would be a solid donor for a Woah Nellie build

Bally Dude Ranch bingo (head under the Surf Side in pic 4)

Some other bingo (head under the Surf Side in pic 4)

Pepsi vending machine - doesn't cool but I think he said it works otherwise

He's a bit overwhelmed and I'm not sure the best way to go about getting this all sold for him. Clearly he needs better pictures and it would be nice to have some sort of indication on overall (dys?) function of everything.. I just know he needs them gone and I need him with cash in hand for all the projects I'm going to be doing for him (lol). Any suggestions?
