blackwater 100. I'd never played it until today. Pretty fun game with some amazing playfield designs. 5 flippers and 3 levels!

You should have played the early prototype game.
The eject holes where animated. The ball would "rev"
with the sound. Sadly, the operators would assume
the game had multiple bad coils and thus removed the "rev"
from the game, but kept the sound.

Brought home a HUO RFM yesterday, game is absolutely mint. Went through it and did a full cleaning, polish and minor cab touch-ups and it looks and plays like new. Love the adult humor and innuendo in this game, it pairs up nicely with AFM

I wasn't looking for any project EMs; I have enough already! But this is one EM that is unique and unlike anything I have so I just couldn't turn it down. I'll tally this as an early Christmas present for myself?

The backglass isn't bad but the playfield has quite a bit of planking. I guess this will be my next playfield restore candidate. UGH. Touching up a playfield isn't my idea of fun.

I got a new appliance hand truck from Harbor Freight and this was the inaugural use. I didn't bother to learn how to strap the pin to the hand truck. I would do that when I got home, I thought. I put the hand truck in the bed of the pickup truck, wheels toward the tailgate, and slipped the pinball on top. After a few turns while driving, I heard a loud 'clunk' and this is what I found when I stopped to gander at what damage I had caused. Fortunately, no damage. I did get Travel Time strapped down when I got home but I still haven't figured out what that hand crank thingy is for. It only turns about 300 degrees?? Is this supposed to be for final tightening/locking in place?

My first thoughts are that this pin mover is BIG and HEAVY - maybe a bit of overkill. It takes quite a bit of strength to maneuver it round and about.

Finally decided to grab this bad boy from storage. Can't wait to tear into it. Looks to have been in a home most of its life. People I bought it from said they were offered it free from a friend before they put it to the curb to throw away during a move!! Glad they took it

Picked up a Tommy off an old friend tonight. Going to go through the machine top to bottom, and at a quick glance, it's in pretty good shape. The topper is toast, it's a bit grimy on the outside, and it's got one or two switch errors. The cab and playfield are nice though, and it should make a killer player.

Looking forward to a light project for a change.

This beauty was literally headed to the dump but luckily a friend of a friend rescued it from its fate. He didn't want it so i lucked out and brought her home!

Nice! Do you know how valuable Fathom particularly is these days? Quite the game to get for free!

Worth several thousand. One of the new cliches around here to own, so the price shot up.

No,really?

#3933 2 years ago

The guy who rescued it is an expinhead and knew exactly what he had. I got a real fair deal on it though and his kids are going to have a nice xmas. Win win in my book

And what will that be, a rebranded Mustang? Show us the playfield....

I'm guessing this is a standard refrigerator cart. The strap goes around and through the buckle. It has to go in the buckle a certain way and then you pull to take the slack out while keeping the item tight against the cart. The final tightening is done with a half turn of the crank.

A Konami racer? You sir, are a connoisseur of drivers.

Hopefully not as bad as this poor spraypainted 4 Square.

The whole gallery is depressing. Some are tastefully done but then you realize the destruction of decent machines that had taken place. http://www.gameroompinball.com/p/pinball-machine-gallery.html

Just brought this machine to my workshop.
Had to drive the whole day to South of France but it was worth it : a decent price for a machine with a few fixable issues.

I haven't figured this part out yet, but now that I know how it's supposed to work I can figure it out. I never was 'spacially gifted.'

I have that game, I must have bought it from them off eBay, many years ago.

What is spray painted? The playfield? I actually think that is pretty cool. If it was done right, even cooler. This person obviously took at least some time on this, given the backglass/translite and custom plastics. I don't think there is anything wrong with retheming a game that has a shot or destroyed backglass or playfield. At least it is unique and keeps the game in circulation and playing for more years to come. Look at the thread on the Flash conversion to a Queen-themed game. It's awesome. People retheme that game all the time...simple, good layout, fun. And undoing the artwork on Flash...let's admit it...is no real loss. I've owned a few in the past to play, work on and let go, but the art itself is pretty friggin horrific.

The last Flash I had I was actually debating on retheming it into a Pantera pin. I even started playing with sound roms with Mouth for War and Great Southern Trendkill blended in.

Faded to death but cabinet is really solid with a really great playfield. Can't wait to con a friend in to helping me bring it inside so I can start tearing it down.

No tools on the playfield, but it's being stripped down to be sanded and repainted.
So this bucket...

#3949 2 years ago

Thanks to a good friend of mine who held on to this for me, I picked up an unbelievably clean Who Dunnit. For the first time my wife was excited to have a game come in the house, it is her favorite pin.

After seeing another pinsider get one of these I researched the heck out of this machine (even purchased the pinball arcade version). I remember playing it on location back in the day but that was about it. Thanks to those who helped locate this nice example. It's fits nicely next to my JY (quirky & colorful).
