A little late on this one but just picked up a Fire!

Quoted from dothedoo:

Original playfield? Looks to be in really nice shape.

Yep. Looks to be factory Mylar. Has bubbles in it over some inserts but doesn't bother me or affect gameplay. Only wear is around the ladder ramp hole and the adv x inserts at the top horseshoe lane.

Plastics are cracked in various spots around the buildings, but I am sure that is very common on this game.

Quoted from dmbjunky:

Loved seeing the BBB. I was watching for a zizzle or the pin but haven't seen one in awhile. Thought it be good for little kids to learn on.

You should get them on the real thing, much better learning experience if you as me!

volcano last friday, eldorado 2 fridays ago and yesterday was Big Game, Catacomb and Meteor. no pics of those yet.


Nice. Finally found a big game. Congrats!

#2086 3 years ago
Quoted from rcbrown316:

right on man! both catacomb and big game are in nice shape and are prime restoration candidates. meteor needs a bit too much and well... its meteor. i love the game but dont want to be foolish.

Well from what I've seen you do to some of your other early SS games I'm excited to see what you do with Big Game.

Quoted from MCE_LLC:

I picked up Jungle Queen as a project pin through Craigslist. It was in someone's basement for 15 years and then a garage for 3-5 years. Play count is ~22000. It has some EM issues that need to be sorted out. It's my first EM pin and my first project so I expect it to take a while. Physically, it's in great shape.I love the artwork.The backglass is in great shape.The playfield is pretty good as well.It seems to have held up well.What is all this stuff?The problem is here somewhere. I just know it.

So jealous. That thing looks like tip top shape. Congrats!

#2126 3 years ago
Quoted from Pindufus:

Well, looks like I am in the running for 'turd of the year'. Picked this up today for $100 and may have overpaid at that price. Playfield and backglass aren't too bad. Cabinet is poor, especially the particle board back. Had to drill the front lock to get inside and saw some of the handiwork of the seller's "electronic genius newphew" who maintained the machine. Looks like I'm getting some of my money back as well.......
Lots of work to do on this one. Haven't decided yet if I'm going to part it out or try to do a reasonable restore.


Paid the same for an Aztec in similar shape last year. Funny thing is when I got it there was a screw in the fuse holder. Haha. I never got it to work and gave it away for free a couple months ago.

Quoted from Bos98:

2 pins 1 van. Also drives great. Love my Honda Odyssey. This is the second one I have owned.

That's going to be my next car and first pin hauler vehicle. Cannot wait.

Martin Riggs: Hey, look friend, let's just cut the shit. Now we both know why I was transferred. Everybody thinks I'm suicidal, in which case, I'm fucked and nobody wants to work with me; or they think I'm faking to draw a psycho pension, in which case, I'm fucked and nobody wants to work with me. Basically, I'm fucked.
Roger Murtaugh: Guess what?
Martin Riggs: What?
Roger Murtaugh: I don't want to work with you!
Martin Riggs: Hey, don't.
Roger Murtaugh: Ain't got no choice! Looks like we both been fucked!
Martin Riggs: Terrific.
Roger Murtaugh: God hates me. That's what it is.
Martin Riggs: Hate him back; it works for me.


Brought this home today from Cleveland!! Thanks so much to Pinballocks!! This was as smooth a transaction you could ever want. Such a great guy, deal with confidence.

Quoted from Harvs:



That game is awesome. Lucky!

#2265 3 years ago
Quoted from Harvs:

I am on a mission to get ALL early DE's!
12hr round trip for Monday Night and APB! Anything for pinball! Ha!!

I was 7 hrs round trip today. Gotta love it!

#2329 3 years ago
Quoted from herbertbsharp:

Man I love these things. I think they are very often overlooked. The music is awesome on most of them and most of the layouts are very creative. Bone Busters is like nothing else, really original and interesting layout.. non-traditional slings, 1 pop bumper, player controlled diverter. It was worth the 2 years it took me to track it down.

I discovered Robowar at LAX last year. Never had lines because it was in the middle of a bunch of DMD games. I played the shit out of it and fell in love.

#2346 3 years ago
Quoted from Minneapolispin:

I sold my Game Show over the weekend and bought an absolutely gorgeous Demolition Man from a buddy. It’s the nicest condition non-HUO game I’ve ever seen. It’s totally shopped with new rubber and all LED bulbs. It looks and plays amazing.

Lucky. Hopefully when I'm ready to buy again I can find an uber nice DM. Love that game.

Quoted from Pinballocks:

I grabbed this awesome Breakshot from ZMeny.
You can buy with confidence from Zach. Outstanding comms, upfront, & honest. Another buyer who picked up two pins before I got there offered him more money for the Breakshot I was buying. (DBag move)
Zach turned them down flat. He even gave us beverages for the trip home. I would buy from him again & is welcome to come play at my place anytime. Great Pinsider.
Thanks Brother,

Congrats buddy. Glad you found your breakshot. Sorry I had to miss you passing through. Guess I'll see you at the CLE show in a little over a month!

Wow congrats she looks great for her age!

Thanks! My uncle has taken very good care of this for the past 20-25 years. Time for me to do the same!

#3400 3 years ago
Quoted from Pinballocks:

Finally grabbed that from your Uncle. Too bad you didn't have time to stop by.

Sorry buddy. Thought of you and violin Steve on my way back but had to get home for a block party in the neighborhood we're moving to in a couple weeks.

#3405 3 years ago
Quoted from jmountjoy111:

I really like the data east games of that period. I've not put a ton of games on lw3 but it seems cool. I traded with a friend who owed me one basically so it's not like I stole it or anything. I believe it will be a fun game

Good luck beating the stock high scores. Haha. Love my LW3

Quoted from Metalmanmiles:

Just picked this one up a few days back, my first machine! Pro football 1973 Gottlieb for only 300 and it works great for the price!

Watch out for the flankerback. He's an asshole.

#3519 2 years ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

10.5 hrs drive on a weekday to pick up this little guy. Got home at 1:30am just dumped the thing in the garage and hit the sack.
combo le HUO for less than $3800. I couldn't resist. It does need a touch up in the cab but otherwise really nice.
I had to take the head off which will be fun putting back together tonight.

Wow. Great score.

As someone who is still new to the world of pinball, my ultimate grail pin followed me home today:

First order of business. Put a tilt in it. Haha. Glad you got it buddy.

#3975 2 years ago
Quoted from wantdataeast:

Beautiful Bally Star Trek that I recently picked up just put a stop to my plans to restore another rough one that I have. I should be able to nearly cover the cost of this machine buy reselling my CPR Bally Star Trek Playfield and Plastic set. Finally good vintage machine that does not need a major restoration.

Nice find!! Go Cats!

#4017 2 years ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Good news is they made alot of them.... i actually wasn't looking for one but the condition and price were right so i bought lol.

Wow. FH is my ultimate grail. If it could only have one game it would be FH. The GOAT!! Congrats.
