Quoted from Colsond3:

The true vampire trifecta is complete

Ok. I totally appreciate the trifecta and the details that tie it together, like the wall art. The theme came together, and I see your vision. Well done.

#3252 3 years ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

After two months, my wishlist grail game arrived from Kentucky!!
Friend made the round trip for me 12 hours each way for a great price. Needs some work and the front of the cab is a little rough, but I could care less. Game will get restored either way. The true vampire trifecta is complete (at least for U.S. manufactured games)!!!! So psyched. This was only the third one I've come across since getting into the hobby, not an easy game to find with only 799 made.

Your pinball collection totally sucks!

Welcome to the club I've had all 3 for almost a year and love them all.

#3254 3 years ago

It's a little dirty & I didn't bring it all the way home. It's not pinball but I figured I'd share. I installed 2 new belts at the end of my workday today & it works. I just had time for one game before heading home & carpool for soccer practice. I'm actually excited to go to work tomorrow.

I bet there will be very little work being done.

That picture looks so cool. What are those lights from? I also dig the R2D2 and C3PO coming out of the wall! I need to get those.

Yesterday's delivery. I was so busy cleaning the garage I have only setup one so far.

I love his stance. So heroic and tough-guy looking, although I bet he's not!

Awesome.

Yeah it was full on, I can't believe I done it it was hectic , felt like one big blur, I've done it once before about 3 years ago to get my LOTR which is my all time favourite, so it's true what u say, that that's what u have to do to get your grail.. I wouldn't do it anytime soon though , have to forget how full on the trip is before jumping in the car again, lucky I'm outta money for a while..

Traded my XMLE for TWD pro.

Guess I'm stuck on Borg pins.

I think "nice" is an understatement. That thing looks awesome! Alt translight, color DMD, what appears to be a nice and shiny playfield... I'm only basing this off of one picture where we can't see the entire game, but that thing looks awesome! Nice pick up.

Thanks. It's a thing of beauty - playfield has almost no wear at all, and the LED conversion is perfect. I'd like to keep this one until I can get to "Final Battle" so that might be for life...

#3284 3 years ago

Excellent! I actually couldn't tell if those were LEDs or not. I thought they were, but didn't want to assume. Great looking game, and now I'm pretty jealous.

#3286 3 years ago

Picked up a BOP in KC last weekend. Got it all torn down, cleaned, waxed, problems fixed, back together, and all good to go...

-) New locks
-) New glass (original glass was badly scratched)
-) New legs and bolts (originals were badly corroded)
-) New flippers (originals were cracked)
-) New flipper buttons (originals were faded and dirty)
-) New flipper coils (originals were weak)
-) Flipper rebuilt kit for both flippers
-) Full black rubber kit
-) New rear glass retainer (original was broken)
-) New flipper leaf switches (originals had corroded pads)
-) Full teardown, cleaning, and playfield waxing.
-) Painted the black areas around the back box
-) Replaced all burned out bulbs
-) Replaced some missing screws
-) Adjusted four switches that were not registering

#3292 3 years ago

My first card-themed game! The playfield is rough and will require a full playfield repaint. The backglass is flaking in multiple areas. It should be a nice challenge to bring this back to the living. Definitely a project pin!

Been waiting a long time to be able to post in this thread. Bought home my first pin from a fellow pinsider on Sunday!

Not really. I mean, your main fuse is good, but that's all that tells you. My experience with these is check and rebuild the power supply first, it really isn't a good design. Then go after the MPU if it still doesn't boot.

I've always liked the artwork on this one.

Be careful with that dart board.

I was eyeing the Double Dragons. Pretty cool to have the pair.

I had to laugh at the 3" upper flipper.

Quoted from dmbjunky:

I chuckled a bit at that too. It's a project, a decent playing example, but a project nonetheless. First thing on the agenda is to triplethick the glass and rebuild the flips.
