HUO TSPP with all the mods (color DMD on the way) purchased from bdaley6509 (great seller btw!) and a brand new IMVE w/ shaker and FF backbox flasher kit. A month ago I had no machines, luckily I am constrained by space and three is my max. Safely delivered by the always courteous and helpful Paul Drabik of Wanna Pinball. Can't recommend him enough if you're in the NYC metro area.

Quoted from fisherdaman:

Welcome to the TSPP club!! Nice looking game. I love my TSPP. I don't see it leaving any time soon.

Thank you kind sir, I'll be seeing you in the club! I enjoy your state very much in the colder seasons, and I see you are also a follower of the "three machines complete me" philosophy. You clearly have life figured out

#965 4 years ago

A nice HUO Ripley's. The tilt bob was still sealed in a bag.

Nice find congrats! Love this machine so much. If you get a second would you mind taking a shot of the row of GI bulbs under the backbox? I have a really nice one I also recently acquired but the color seems a little off to me, it's basically alternating gold and blue. Thanks and enjoy.

Very stoked to finally get this, loving how smoothly this plays!

Quoted from SilverUnicorn:

Nice candy cabinet too!

Thank you sir! I've had it for ages, it was my gateway drug to pinballs hah. Yours looks very nice, is it a 29? Mine's a 25, prior to my present house it was perfect for small apartments. Dreading the day the monitor goes bad

Absolutely gorgeous, WOW. Congrats on your epic machine!

Next week I'm thinking about getting a Hercules. I heard people really love that game and the deep code that comes with it.

BWAHAHAHA outstanding. I have a few extra cue balls if you ever need some spares!

Quoted from Colsond3:

Game looks nice! Was that the one from New York?

Thanks! Not sure, it was done by Rob G. and the rockland guys so maybe?

#4543 2 years ago
Quoted from chadderack:

Cool red plastic shooter knob.

Yeah I dig it. Is it not stock? First time playing this not on my iPad, blew the first multiball so badly hah.

#4549 2 years ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

And red shooter is not stock, but looks nice. I'm not a purist, and I replace the shooter rods on all my games. Sometimes with a replacement stock, sometimes with custom ones. Multi-ball can be tough on CFTBL. Great acquisition though. I'll have to swing by and play it.

Oh yeah, all my rods are generally replaced with the pinball decals chrome spherical ones. I'm a huge fan of mods etc... I was just curious about the origin.

Man, you're welcome to swing by anytime if you're in the NYC area and I'm around. Just Pm me. It's super embarrassing having every mediocre high score in my name haha... I have literally zero real life pinball nerd friends here.

I've learned that if you buy good pins. You can At least break even....

I've found you win some you lose some. But we're all winners in the end because how frikkin' cool is it to have a bunch of pinball machines in your house!

Complete guess, but they probably have their own SIM cards that they drop in (with test firmware, etc.), then just pack SIM cards from inventory.

Makes sense, cheers.

Quoted from wiggy07:

I need to come over and play...Hopefully Star Wars was easier to get into your game room then the other two machines we moved...

Tuesday and Wednesday nights are always good, hit me up! Would love to see how other people do on it... it's so fast! I might be having more fun on this than my new AFMr.

Took all of ten minutes to get it in, half the weight and maybe 5 connectors to remove.

Nice GorillaBiscuits...love your lineup!

Thanks man! It’s been a fun journey to get here.

Going for time tested classics... and Star Wars haha. Once my TNA gets here I’m done for a LONG time. After a couple years I should be ready to mix in some system 11’s and EMs, but still greatly enjoying the cookie cutter phase of things

Finally got me some sweet sweet TWD action in my life! Think this will definitely add to my growing list of keepers.

Had a shaky GI connection... super dark, flickering lights... but of course a simple search here tracked down the culprit. Reseated the slightly crispy looking connector and all is well. Will reach out to Stern for a replacement.

Super stoked to get into this! Can’t wait to update to the latest code tomorrow, gonna go for the R-rated Cleland Radiohead/NIN mix

Creature has a new friend!

Just need to remove most of the colored GI (go home pinball bulbs premium kit, you’re drunk!) and I’m all set. A special thank you to the impending remake w/ possible new code for bringing the prices back down to Earth

Oh and cheers to jhoward1082 for being an absolutely great person to deal with!

Figured I’d squeeze in my first widebody and JJP in one shot.

So friggin relieved it fit through the doors I had widened!

Also got my first light board problem during transit, right in the middle of the PF... doh! Was hoping for a loose connector but NOPE. Time to order some jumper cables, can’t bypass the suspected culprit with the length that’s there presently. Looks and plays great otherwise, super stoked!

Had a good old fashioned NYC-style trade complete with a bazillion subway transfers, hours of gridlock traffic, and plenty of double parking in a rented cargo van. Bonus points for getting screamed at by a bus driver for blocking them in for ten minutes.

Thanks to brooklynknight for a super fun Saturday!

Anyways, Star Wars is back and joins GOT as the only other game I’ve owned for a second time

#10295 11 months ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

Bonus points for sporting the tote, even if only to carry your moving blanket.

It also had a breakfast bar, water, and a good book

Also, why did it take me three years to finally buy a hand truck

#10299 11 months ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

That is the eternal question. What the hell did you use before? Your spine will love you now, particularly the 5 lumbar.

Legs, arms, back and another equally dumb person haha. Honestly though, the majority of times people have swung by with their own as I went on a bit of trading rampage the last couple years.

I’m super happy with what I have now so it’s just gonna sit unused for a while... but I’m sure I’ll get the itch again next year. We really are weak creatures haha.

#10302 11 months ago
Quoted from jaytrem:

You didn't actually bring the pin on subway did you? Wouldn't be the strangest thing on there.

Of course! Hah. No, the other guy didn’t have a hand truck so I brought it with me. He rented the truck truck so it was a team effort

So stoked about this one.

Technically it’s at my folk’s place in Buffalo, but a sincere thanks to pinballer67 for delivering this Eight Ball Deluxe LE with a gorgeous original playfield across the border.

Super pleasant and positive guy to deal with who really went the extra mile for a low dollar deal.

Can’t wait for Fast Eddie to do the rest

Quoted from yzfguy:

Left early this morning to pick up two games. Came home empty
As much as I know it was a good decision, it sucks coming home empty

Let me guess... Gilligans Island and Pinbot in Lafayette? $1400 for a pinbot with playfield wear and acid damage didn’t scream BUY ME. Owner seemed nice enough and they played OK. But yeah I passed as well.

#13495 58 days ago
Quoted from ibuypinballs:

Was on the fence to take the ride, guess not going was the right choice. What was the Popeye priced at?

The Gilligans was $1600 and actually had a nice playfield. Was tempted but also passed. Both had battery damage and wasn’t sure how extensive, but played fine. Seller was a pleasant guy and had the games in his home for 25+ years. He seemed open to offers for both but I was just passing through with a small car so didn’t want to waste his time.

#13566 52 days ago

Bally fever continues! Picked up a really nice original Fathom and a Centaur in one shot. This officially ends my run as these things are massive (thank God I found an 8BLE) and my basement can't handle anymore, but loving all of them so not mad.

Now where the heck did I leave my box of comet warm whites

I’ve been missing the hell out of my Iron Man lately, and when this loaded beauty popped up last week I had no choice but to drag it across the country from Texas.

Somebody loved this one for sure, even powder coated the service rails! Now that I’m older and wiser it’s definitely time to open up the outlanes

Quoted from Colsond3:

Damn Patrick...that is one pretty IM. Nice grab.

Thanks Colson! It’s been well played and needs a bit of minor work, but pretty small potato stuff.

BTW I just realized that every time I post something in this thread you always have a new game either a post above or below mine. I scrolled around a bit and wow, I think every 6 posts are one of yours! If I ever get a bigger car and a stair climber I’d probably be doing the same thing

Congrats on Frank that thing looks amazing!

Haha amazing. Glad you came to your senses and picked another up. Hang onto this one!
