ST Premium- it's about time!

#445 4 years ago
Quoted from MT45:

Big Betty's Truck Stop arrived today via STI. Seller did amazing job packing. By far, best packaging on a pallet I've ever seen. Had only enough time to unpack and quick game or two. Good not perfect condition. No playfield wear but mylar bubbling everywhere. May try to reheat and stick to PF. Plastics good. Ramps missing two very small pieces that are really cosmetic. Game plays really well and both flipper sets are strong. Game is really clean under PF but needs a good shop out and new rubbers, a few new posts. Can't wait to get after it!

BBB #11 finally delivered to Rockland pinball!
Big thanks to Rob (Gwaxt72) for help with the unboxing and lugging into my house
What a game, those capcom flippers sure are snappy! Even those special high power coils made for STTNG can't compare to these!
Missing a few pics from the unboxing which didn't come out too well, it was hard to contain myself and take pics at the same time

Holy moly! I love that game, I could never bring one home though, at least I can play it digitally, I hope it's a ton of fun for you !!!! " Welcome to Big Bang!"

#684 4 years ago
Quoted from tdunbar:

Came in yesterday evening and bought it to save it for future generations. Played fine at sellers but now randomly lockups so now need to figure out why it worked then but not so well now. I can play it for a while then like a get no DMD or backox lights or flipper power, so a power issue somewhere. This is a really strange and rare game so I took a gamble on it. Am I stupid or just a classic guy that wants to keep these alive. Its in really good physical shape except maybe the cabinet. The seller will help me and local pin gurus are available locally so we will get it going and keep it alive.

One very faded HUO Pinbot. The insides are spotless... However, just about all the red is gone from the back glass and playfield plastics.

Is that the one that was on eBay? I almost bought it and had it shipped, almost, playfield and topper looked awesome

#708 4 years ago
Quoted from uncivil_engineer:

Yes, it was listed on eBay as well as Craigslist. The only flaw I have found on the playfield is a small wear spot near the far left saucer eject. Mechanically, it is great shape, with all the original boards with all the factory warranty stickers still on them.

Right on!

Quoted from schudel5:

So this is strange. I'm out in the driveway replacing the brakes on my car, when a truck pulling a trailer drives in. The guy gets out and says he's a friend of a guy I know that I've done some pinball work for. Says he's just picked up a game and wants to know if I'm interested. Can't pass up a deal on a Magnotron. Wasn't even looking.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Just picked up an Atari Atarians. Now I should be able to confirm and add some of the missing pinwiki info about this game, since there's a few differences between this one and later Atari games.
The game coins up and flips, but the displays were out. It very well might be just a fuse!
Not only is this game fairly uncommon, but one interesting thing about this particular game is that the original owl-eye coin door was replaced with a Bally video arcade game coin door--likely because the owl-eye coin door was easy to defeat with the coin-on-a-string trick. Luckily, I already found a spare owl-eye coin door that I can use to replace it.
I now have 4 examples of the 6 Atari themes produced (not counting Hercules). I just need Time 2000 and Space Riders to complete the Atari collection.
Here's a couple photos of it still wrapped up as I was unloading it.

Quoted from jmountjoy111:

This one has full mylar. It is filthy dirty but really in nice shape. It booted up with the old board but it had acid damage. It came with a new rottendog MPU but the processor chip was damaged on the old board so I guess I'll have to order one of those.

one of my first games... my family loved it, I, well... your looks really good, I love the sewer pop out, thats a really cool feature I think new pinball should look at adding in

Quoted from ForceFlow:

I just dragged home a second Stern Lectronamo. I'll probably combine the best of the two to make a good one and okay one. Both were routed, but this one is the better of the two I now have.
At some point, a previous owner replaced the MPU with an alltek.

I thought I was the only one loosely looking for one of these
Nice grab, can't hurt having 2

#1175 3 years ago

I wasn't actually actively looking for another one, but I'll pick up pretty much anything if the price is right.

Same here, I run out of room, and then grab 2 or 3 more

LOL, Local Craigslist. I was out of town for the holidays and saw it come up. Never thought it would last long enough for me to get home. Four day later it was still there. Supposedly, it's a one owner machine - don't know about that - but who ever had must have had it in storage for the last 10 years with all this dust/dirt. I'm going to be cleaning this for the next 6 months.

No Doubt, but That's the way I like em, makes them cheaper to haul off

I ran out of room in one of the bedrooms I stole for a game room while I finish the basement in my new house. Well, lets just say I ran out of room. My wife loved playing WoZ so much before I bought one that she told me to put it in the dining room for now. Best wife ever!

#1649 3 years ago
Quoted from Pecos:

The seller didn't know how to remove the backbox and hadn't read Pinside to learn the "proper" way to move a pin. Needless to say he was sick about it - especially when he found out what it would take to repro the original. It's a lesson to us all. I will try to make lemonade out of lemons and maybe something good will come from it.

I sure hope it turns out well, so sad when such rare stuff gets broken

Beautiful game! I traveled far for mine too, put in over a hundred hours to make it gorgeous. It definitely is a heart throb to have a nice BK, super pumped for you

#1937 3 years ago
Quoted from Adrian:

G'day to everyone form Perth Western Australia, well I'm a Gottlieb fan and had the opportunity to bring home this gem. The backglass is a perfect 10/10 I thought it was a translight however it's original. The machine is Australian delivered and the guy I purchased from has had it for 25 years. The displays come on but machine doesn't boot up. It's a shame that there's so much wear on the playfield. I'm intending to keep this so if any pinside members know where there maybe a better playfield please pm me, I know that Steve Young sold a NOS last year so if the person who bought it is out there please contact me.

#2057 3 years ago
Quoted from MCE_LLC:

Brought my first pin home today. I wanted to start with one I remembered from my Silver Odyssey arcade days in the early 80's. Blackout was one of my staples during those years. This is the first of my "just one" collection. But we all know that "just one" means N+1.
It barely fit.
So big yet so lonely.

Really a pretty cool game, cool robotic voice, cool orbit flow and reverberating spinner sound, challenging drop target shots.
It looks very nice!

#2238 3 years ago
Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

Not sure if this truly qualifies, but I decided to pull out my AGBGoWT from storage after a LONG time. (NIB overstock purchase).
Not much play on this game, put maybe 250+ games on it, folded it back up, shrink wrapped it and got crated.
"Dial in" via burn test and tech overhaul required on this game, even when it came from the factory.
"Bulletproofing" is a better term, and I still need to add some tweaks to protect the playfield. It can be be a little wonky if you just fire it up, not in the electronics per say, but more about playfield switch design, not to mention the game has not been played in nearly a decade.

If you got rid of those chairs, end table and lamp, plants and coffee table it would go a lot better with the 3 additional pins that would fit nicely into that space... plus those additional pins would jazz up the room lighting a bit as it is too sedate.

I agree

I know it's rare. I am hoping to at least get some game plan drop targets, as i don't like the look of the DE drops. I know it was a little much to ask about a BG, but it never hurts to ask, you never know!

If you can get a scan, I can help with a possible translite

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Things in the house can always be rearranged to fit a second game if you try hard enough. I have them in my 3 bedrooms as well, including the smaller 11x10 bedroom and it also has a bed in there too.

I have 19 games in my house, 7 pins and the rest arcades. I only had room for 1, ended up taking over a whole room and then some... Still plenty of breathing room, turns out my wife is totally cool with it. She even moved her suv out of the garage to let more pins in... I love her

#2769 3 years ago

Alright you guys got me... My family has a Lakehouse about 5.5 Hours Drive from my hometown. It takes an extra 1.5 hours with kids, and I just didn't have enough room for the cab because of all the kids stuff. A friend of mine there has a woodshop buddy that is making us a few cabinets in his spare time. I left the cab at the lake house, I'll go back at the end of the month with my truck to grab the cabinet and all of the metal and wiring harness that we have for it also .

And when I go back, hopefully there will be a black belt waiting there for me as well

#2775 3 years ago
Quoted from yzfguy:

It takes an extra hour and a half with kids?! Do you drag them behind the truck?

haha, we usually stop once to eat and another stop for fuel, my boys are 3 and 5, so it takes extra time when we stop, they must ask a thousand questions about everything too...

Quoted from Captive_Ball:

Couldn't put the kids stuff IN the empty cabinet?

The cab won't fit sideways! I wish it would
we had 2 bikes, a scooter, my bag of tools and luggage bags, I tried to make it all fit. I even thought of putting the cab on top of the navigator, but I didn't want to sand bugs off or worry about rain, or put the boys bikes on top or irritate my wife (she drives the entire trip)

it's all good, I go back often. besides I have to... my Stars and Star Trek are there waiting on me to play them there.

Quoted from Crispin:

Technically I brought her home this morning at 1am but started yesterday morning at 6:30am. How sick am I? Sick enough to drive into NYC for a morning meeting at work, then straight off to the far west end of PA to score this unicorn! I immediately had to turn around and drive back to the island to get back at work this morning.

That's just my style!

#4194 2 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

You're close. It's a 1982 RCA front projection TV. The front part folds down to reveal a projector aimed towards the viewer at a mirror. That mirror puts the picture on what I think is a plastic reflective screen. I actually don't have anything to play on it at the moment but it's pretty awesome. 50 inch screen for cheap.
Not a pin but I wondered if anyone would recognize it.

That's crazy! That was my first thought , but thought nah also, they used one to play Mario bros on "halt and catch fire"

Just rethemes > HS2 into Cars1 and Indy500 into Cars2. Both have Pinsound cards and I changed all the original sounds/music into the Cars movie sounds/music. Custom translights. And lots of custom interactive mods.
My kids love Disney Cars. And with Cars3 coming out this June we thought and Cars pins would be appropriate!
Still working on both pins. Slow, but a fun retheme project.

So awesome!!!!!!!!!!

You could use Mustang for Cars 3, or maybe viper night driving, or corvette or ...

I can't get over the rethemes, great work!
