I brought home Arnold yesterday to keep Rod company. Came with the LED HK-arial and T1000 mod.

I was in an Uber a few days ago and brought up pinball. Turned out his buddy was looking to dump these two beautiful games to pay his house tax bill. I was thrilled to do my part.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

Sunny Drive time! love it when a deal works out... and you can throw them in the back of the pickup on a Texas sunny day

Considering the amazing reds on these, that hour of sun is probably all its seen in the past 20 years, and all it pretty much will see in the next 20 lol

One of my favorite hard to find games of all time has arrived but...Who Dunnit?

Quoted from jmountjoy111:

I overpaid for this machine given that $1400 is the going rate but I feel good about it. I've had JD on the wish list for a long time.

$1400 is the going rate in what what year, 2005? Only BW DMD I'm aware of that routinely goes under 2K is Party Zone.

Went to work. Took lunch break at 930am to sell Who Dunnit. Went back to work. Left at end of day to go to bank to get extra funds. Hopped in truck with buddy and picked up this beauty - previous owner had it basically unused for the past 13 years. Most of the dirt was on the decals, not the game lol. The clearcoat just glistens.

OK so I got this a few weeks back- technically- but it wasn't ready till yesterday, had some issues in shipping that required Stern to send a few parts to bring 100 percent. OK, so she was a dog. Looks like Sigourney again. Also pictured is my Addams, which I picked up in October.

So excited to welcome the arrival of the first game I loved as a kid, Cyclone. This one is an absolute beauty, a labor of love and my first full resto with LEDs and a CPR playfield. Couldn't pass it up.

I traded my Ghostbusters Premium and cash considerations for Hobbit Smaug HUO. Needs a tech to get it dialed in but otherwise it's amazing

Quoted from Chosen_S:

I bet you'll have TH for 6 weeks tops...
You need a solid system 11 that you can sink your teeth into imo. I don't think deep busy rules are your thing, you seem to push a lot of those types out the door pretty quickly

I don't really have a good technical hand at all on my pins, working on the mechs under the playfield- and that's not going to change unless I take a formal training class. Anytime I try to "figure it out"- I make the technical issue worse till the tech comes.

I know that makes the hobby more expensive for me, but its an expense I can live with or I'll get out altogether.

One knows one's own pin talents- for me, its art/mod layout design/basic shop on the surface.
Under the playfield, my lone joy is performing LED conversions.

I've always been pfft when it comes to the whole cultural "you have to be able to fix your own games" thing on Pinside.

Some of us just dont have the skill/coordination/interest- I'd say all of the above apply in my case.

As for deep busy rules, until GB I've only owned 90s pins- none of which I'd call deep or busy.
Sure, some may call TZ deep or busy- but I honestly crushed that game once I learned its rule set.

Btw, I recently purchased a restored Cyclone, so I definitely appreciate quality Sys11.
They're just so darn hard to find in nice shape and at the right price.

Addams Family came home today from master Keith Holbrook's restoration shop. While here, we pulled the ratty rails and original legs off Dracula and chromed it out with black chrome hinges, to match TAF.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Very very very nice! Congrats. Did he use a CPR playfield or restore the one you had?

Thanks. Keith restored the original, survivor playfield.

Quoted from Colsond3:

Very nice...and it looks like you have the BSD tombstone mod I distributed together with Morpheus.

This mod is so good, only now did it actually click this wasn't actually stock.

Pinball history imitates itself. I acquired my first pin five years ago in a trade for $600 and an old 60" tv I no longer wanted. That pin was Tales from the Crypt- and it turned out to be a prototype! I had many adventures with the game before letting it go to pay for Twilight Zone. I cut my teeth further on that game, but my first was and has always been 'the one that got away.' Today, for about the same funding as I sold it for, I have brought home another, different TFTC. Spookily enough, this one is ALSO a prototype, and the playfields of these two games were manufactured the very same day!

Quoted from Colsond3:

You shouldn’t have sold the BSD!!! Congrats on the MB pick up.
Wait! Is that guy wearing a jerga? I didn’t know those things still existed.

I don't miss BSD but I hear you. I like fast/flowy games like MB and Borg's games. BSD was for me more of a long term pinball art project. Which I loved, until the day I realized I was keeping it more as a trophy than for it's gameplay. Maybe I'll pair Munters and Monsters one day...
