Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Ive got my NIB TRon LE and a Star Trek LE coming next week. My wife is going to walk into the garage and see them. I do not think she will be happy. Wish me luck. If I disappear off the forum, you probably have an idea of what happened to me.

It is *AMAZING* to me the older NIB pins that still show up out of the blue on here. In the last week an LOTR LE, TRON LE, and ST LE, and a NGG and IJ that might as well have been NIB......sigh......wish I had that kinda luck!!

Awesome pin, the AC/DC vault Pro is a great machine, really a Pro Plus. Keep an eye on the lightning bolt LEDs, they work their way out of the socket and onto the playfield in a day......

The front cabinet artwork on that Junkyard looks interesting.......

#6703 1 year ago
Quoted from Djshakes:

Never played either. Hope they are fun.

TOTAN is IMO the best looking WMS/Bally ever made and will be fin for a couple of months, then it gets old as the depth isn't there.

WH2O is also great looking and lots of fun, and will be for a long time.....

Nice pickup!!

#6739 1 year ago
Quoted from Seatmandan:

I thought this would be the case for mine after I restored it, but since I have pinball players in the house that are not serious players, and are just casual (Wife & daughters), It's their favorite pin, and I still have it almost 2 years later!

True, TOTAN was my wife's favorite as well back then, however she may play one game every month or so....

#6778 1 year ago

Absolutely gorgeous pin!!!! Congrats!!!!

#6787 1 year ago

Man, that sucks......however if you can source another leg it looks like it won't be visible when mounted....but still, yes, that sucks!!!!

Quoted from Crispin:

Brought this beauty home Monday to sit in Quicksilver's spot in the line up while the playfield gets restored. She only had one broken drop target but keeps resetting every 20 games or so.

Holy crap.....wow!!!! That is a beauty....please...don't tell me you picked her up for a ridiculous low amount!!

You guys up in the northeast & Chicago area are so damn lucky....pins like that never show up around here in the South!!

Quoted from wantdataeast:

Geez, I sort of want to say the dude paid too much in 1997 for it at $2850 after two years on location. What was the retail on this pin in 1995?
I just remember hearing on some Todd Tuckey video he mention the many of the 90's Bally Williams game going for $750-$1000 when they were pulled off location.
What a great score for you... TOM is on my short list

What Todd said is true, but for the early '90s. By the late '90s the home pin market started to pick up. I paid around $2200 for a ToM reimport from PinballHeaven UK around 2002, compared to $1300 to a TZ & $1100 for a STTNG in 1999.

Quoted from jfre81:

Show that girl some love and get her playing again.
If I get a pin it will be an early SS and it will need work. The less complicated, the better. Genie fits perfectly. Maybe not through the door, though.

Love a Genie, she is the best of the early Gottlieb Sys 1's.....but she *definitely* is a BBW!!! You ever try to move one??

#7471 1 year ago

Awesome pickup bluespin....can't believe I didn't see this one myself!

Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:

Really great condition LOTR. Be sure to protect your cabinet around the flipperbuttons or they will wear out soon (transparant button protectors, etc..)

Agreed, very nice machine. Stern Lollipop rails are $59 at Pinballlife, easy 5 minute install and look great!

Must not be the Romo addition, as it's legs aren't broken......

Quoted from Wildbill327:

Was planning on buying a pro but this deal came up and I went for it.

Great choice, Premium/LE is the best way to go on Star Wars....but then again I'm biased!

Quoted from Puffdanny:

Brought home this amazing machine today and saved southeast Michigan from 2 more years of this piece of shit being relisted every other day

LOL!! We got some guy here in Birmingham who is doing that with the Fonzie version for $100, triple crossposts every 2-3 days for the last 6+ months....

Hopefully legally!
Your expression is awesome!

Quoted from Micky:

Keen to see some pics of it set up with that awesome looking powder coated armour.

Quoted from ChipScott:

That Trons looking good man! Congrats again. Looks like you got a quick bite on your other pin too. Sweet!
Post some pics when you get er set up!

Here she is, great looking and playing pin!!

What car is this. Opel Ampera?

Correct, which is sold as a Chevrolet Volt in the US.

Very reasonable auction buy today. Now just need a Solar Fire to complete the FabFour set.

Nice find!! What kind of auction???

#9226 12 months ago

That Dragon is most definitely *NOT* a VPin candidate, especially if it works! Shop it and play it, and if you don't want to keep it sell it on, it's just looks too nice to part out!!

Black Knight needs some love. Winter project!!

Nice!! Where did that one popup?? Must have missed it, would have probably jumped on it myself for a project if I had seen it.....oh well!

#9428 11 months ago
Quoted from FelixTCat:

Brought it home yesterday but didn't have time for it until tonight, Williams Blackout is up and running (minus a left flipper and some sticky drop targets)
[quoted image]

Nice one!! Got excited when I saw it posted......then, as usual, saw how far away it was......loved playing it when it first came out!

EDIT: More pics now that she is home. Undocumented HUO purchase 38 years ago by the gentlemen I bought it from, played by 4 generations of their family. Backglass is perfect, some minor battery leakage, but fires right up with perfect original displays. Perfect pin for a restoration:

Quoted from Midway-Man:

Is there a reason why there are both mini Post rubbers missing on the outlanes?

Gary & George saw the long ball times during the DeadFlip reveal video and knew operators would have a cow watching people put in a dollar and play all night....

Quoted from dyopp21:

#44 and 45 in my collection. Hotdoggin and Freefall. A nice older lady in west Missouri purchased these 20 years ago so her nieces and nephews would come visit more often. They've been in a climate controlled house since then and other than artwork missing from the center of the FF playfield, they are in really good shape. Even had the original manuals which is pretty rare in my experience.

#11435 3 months ago
Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

Thanks! The best part is that pin was played constantly for three days and the only issue I saw was a stuck ball on Sunday. For a pin that has a rep for being difficult to maintain I was impressed.

Quoted from Pahuffman:

I've never understood this. The only unusual maintenance I've ever had to do on mine was clean the warp ramp diverter. Been going strong for over 2 years.

Got to remember this pin was among the first to heavily uses underplayfield optos for switches. Operators that rarely cleaned and/or shopped upper playfields correctly sure as heck weren't going to clean lower playfield optos and diverters. The ones I had back in the day were very reliable once optos were cleaned and/or replaced.

Quoted from cosmokramer:

No, I believe that was Soulrider911s masterpiece....
I did black powder on my resto...

Ahh, thanks, I stand corrected. I knew I had seen it before and I remembered some of your great work on your Fish Tales.
