Friday night I had the pleasure of driving up to Colson's house in Levittown, PA to look at and potentially buy a Conquest 200 pinball machine. What an awesome dude! I can't say enough good things about him and his hospitality. I could have purchased this machine sight unseen, because he described it 100% perfectly and even provided a video backing up all of his claims. I wish all Pinside transactions were this simple. Upon arrival he gave me a quick tour of his mancave which has some pretty awesome pins in the lineup. My girlfriend got to play several games she has never played before while me and Colson geeked out over pinball. Since this was my first ever EM purchase, Colson took the time to show me the game inside out and what to look for if the game has any problems (A+++ service). After I paid him for the pinball machine I then went out to grab my tools and he told me not to worry about it. He single handedly took the game apart, loaded it up on the dolly, and loaded it into my mini-van. Throughout the entire transaction he gave me a plethora of pointers on tearing down games, loading/unloading them, and transporting them. Hell I had no idea I should lay cardboard down over the carpet of the mini-van to avoid snags in the carpet from the pinball machine. To top it all off, he even threw in an EM file for the switches and decent bag of LED lights. He is also now a part of Lights of Pinball, so be sure to support Lights Out Pinball and don't ever be afraid to deal with Colson, he is a stand up guy! Thanks Colson!

Game is now unloaded and in the basement. Enjoy the pics!

I have never even seen this WWF in person let alone played one. What's it like?

Haven't set it up yet. I'll let you know tomorrow! But now it's time to watch "Get Out"

Quoted from Colsond3:

Chad, another one already? You are totally out of control dude. You and gdonovan should sponsor each other for the support group. LOL.

That's it! I didn't buy anything at Allentown. This was my purchase instead. Out of space now. So the only other new additions would be via trade only.

#5212 2 years ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

Me got you....again. Brought this back home from the guy in Long Island I sold it to last year. Didn't hesitate given the excellent condition and NOS backglass.
And in true pinball illness form, checked out the ol' let go app on the way up and found a second game in Brooklyn to pick up on the way home. I have issues.

So, transporting on the side is OK? I thought I read one time that was a no no. Enlighten me!

Brought home a Sure Shot a couple of days ago. Before moving it into the basement I decided to leave it in the garage as we had a block party planned for the weekend and decided I would put the game out for everyone to enjoy. I also provided the entertainment(DJing & games), the community water slide, the outdoor movie, and the fireworks show. Kids loved the pinball machine!

That looks like a good time.
What happened to all of the trees ? I was looking at the houses and noticed there were no trees ?

Housing development is sitting on old farmland, so no trees except the tiny trees everyone has planted in the front yard. Development is only a couple of years of old.

Awesome pick up!! Some of the best audio in a game in my opinion. I grabbed one last year and ended up having to move it, but luckily my buddy has it and I have first dibs to get it back.

Hmm, I don't have it?

Quoted from Vic_Camp:

The cabinet paint looks really nice (what little shows of it in the pic) and almost has a high gloss look to it. Maybe the sun is shining on it ?

Not sure. Here are some prelim pics setup in the garage. Will have to wait until the weekend to get it in the basement. I’ll try and get some better pics.

I made a mistake and sold my beautiful condition Count Down 15 years ago..but the person i sold it back then called me when he was moving and asked if i want to buy i back....and i did. It's back in my collection for good now. Much to good of a drop target player to ever let go again. Thanks for sharing the extra pictures.

The girlfriend loves it, so it's a keeper here too!

It's not Royal Rumble because that cabinet is solid black along the back. This cabinet is blue down near the corner.

Assuming that the playfield is toast like most copies of this title, you can order a Hardtop playfield solution. Space Shuttle is already in stock. You can find the link to the sale site through this forum:

I’ll be bringing this home tomorrow. It will become my second EM in my current collection and 4th EM that I have ever owned. My Conquest 200 will never leave my collection, it’s that good.

Quoted from bluespin:

Great pickup!. That's a really fun game to play and the playfield looks to be in great shape.

I’m hoping so! I’ve only played it 2-3 times but I like all the features of the game. I’ve yet to see it in person, but the pics do look like it has a good PF which was/is my biggest concern.

#8294 1 year ago

Brought home Grand Prix on Saturday. I bought it 45 minutes before 27 kids showed up at my house for the first ever kids pinball tournament in Delaware. When I bought it I noticed the pops and slings did not work. Didn’t have time to troubleshoot before the tourney began so we rolled with it as is. After the tourney I popped it open and the fuse was bad. So we got a nice working example now!

Quoted from luckycreature:

I got it for 175$ on craigslist. Seller gave me the wrong ac adaptor so Ive ordered one with the correct power voltage. Also its a drain monster so Im getting an old Bally Red saver cap to mount in the middle of drain and hope to replace the flipper buttons with something better. I already added some Funko Toys to the outside of playfield to liven it up. It is a toy but its a fun toy.
I have a Total nuclear on order but I may not see that till 2019 so this will provide some fun.

I have 2 Pirate Zizzles. By default they truly are drain monsters. I instantly added a center post, outlane posts on both sides and adjusted the ball guide on the left loop and this helped immensely! All my ideas came from:

Quoted from TopMoose:

I put a Glow Ball in my Hot Line and highly recommend it. It changes the game entirely.

I put power balls in all my EM's and somem of my older solid states. My Bally Eight Ball also has a power ball in it. The games are so much better and faster.

Dude that is awesome-Congrats!
Did you propose to her surrounded by a bunch of middle age white male pinheads?-Classic

Mostly! The proposal was done during the First State Flippers August Annihilation event on 8/4/18. 50 people in attendance, mostly middle aged, haha. Although we had about 10 women in attendance that day along with 2 of our kids who were all playing in the tournament. It was quite the surprise. Below is a short clip of the proposal recorded by the local newspaper.

The things we do for a pinball machine. Wait, let me rephrase that. The things I do for my fiancé for a pinball machine! I headed out at 1030am this morning and got to drive through the Nor’Easter that hit the east coast on one of the worst stretches of highway in America 95/495! Well after 6 hours I have my fiancé’s machine loaded up and now I’m driving 3 hours back home! Fun times!

Oh yea, in the middle all of this I swung by the workplace of another Pinsider and dropped off my No Fear to them!

Big thanks to mrwizzo for letting this go from his collection. He has owned this pin for almost 20 years and he also gave me a generous offer for this machine. Also got a set of NOS extra plastics and a NOS Bigfoot Head.

The quick backstory, I told my fiancé I was going to DC to look at one of my grail pins, an Eight Ball Deluxe. When I got it unloaded last night and allowed her to pull the blanket off, she was beyond ecstatic once she saw it was a White Water!

Good job, happy wife, happy life!

I will go on the record and say that I’m extremely lucky to have found her. We met 5 years ago, and I introduced her to pinball 2.5 years ago and she absolutely loves everything about pinball. She loves the pinball shows, loves playing in tournaments, and even requested we put 2 machines in the kitchen! It’s wonderful to say the least!

Going to start up with the Staten Island runs early next year, still plenty there maybe I over looked the body. Have one more run to Delaware also. I believe there are some nos lower playfields for the Elektras there.

No need to come to Delaware, I’m already here.
