Party on dude!
Slightly off topic... that Ghostbusters... and the Ecto-1 model and Stay Puft Marshmellow man on top... do you have any little tricks you use to keep them up there? Like adhesive of some kind or some other unnoticeable bracket so they don't come falling down if the machine gets bumped a little too aggressively? I'm wondering because I have a couple non-standard topper things I'd like to put on my own games and don't want to worry about them falling off.
Quoted from Pinkitten:
Not a pinball machine this time, but a classic from 1983 or so! I was obsessed with Dirk The Daring then, when this game was impossible to master. It’s exactly the same today! Lead on, Adventurer!
Nice find. Same story here for being terrible at it as a kid. Picked it up for NES not long ago and saw they released a version for PS4 not long ago too.
Although... from your picture... is that cabinet miniature size or is that just the world's largest TV remote sitting on the floor next to it???
Nicely done. Looks pretty sweet. I've been collecting old NES games off and on for a while. Had maybe like 15-20 as a kid. Still have those and then went back and bought used a bunch of ones I never got but always wanted. That was about the time I realized NES made six different pinball video games. And this is waaaay before the likes of Pinball Arcade for PS4. The graphics and physics are not exactly top notch by today's standards.
Anyway, I couldn't believe it when I realized they made a Highspeed pinball video game for original Nintendo. Much better than Duck Hunt
Quoted from JoshPA:
I need a set of those handles. Looks like you could sell a run of 20-30 pretty easily. Is anyone thinking of sourcing something?
If someone has CAD drawings to share, I can ask a buddy of mine that works for an industrial steel place what it might take to produce a set (or multiple sets).
Got my first pin that wasn't from my nostalgic, teenage playing years. And I wanted a deeper rule set. I think I've got my hands full figuring this one out!!
Data East, Bally, Williams and Stern. Any more machines and some living room furniture is going to have to go!
Quoted from fast1981:
In my excitement I forgot to take a pic from my van. Ten hour round trip, but enjoyed a Chicago hot beef and hot dog from Portillo's! Good to have the trio together. Still trying to pick a favorite!

Great Elvira collection! And Elvis too!
Thanks! I like that one too. I don't mind the original honestly. It didn't also come with the original, but I might keep my eye out in case anyone is getting rid of it.
Quoted from Hapidance:
This is what came home with me yesterday.
I was excited to find it but I’m gonna need som help!

My Getaway has been the same kind of a$$hole yours apparently is. I’ve got a pretty extensive thread going with the different troubleshooting steps taken. Currently my boards are with someone getting repairs. Once I get them back and reinstalled I’ll post another update. Hopefully there’ll be something in that thread to help you.
