Quoted from oohlou:

Picked up a Flash Gordon for cheap today!
It is, dirty, very faded cabinet, backglass has issues, I cannot get into the backbox yet, and doesn't boot yet
...but it lights up, looks really clean on the underside, the plastics look good, and the playfield is pretty nice except for 1 wear spot. It is going to be a lot of work getting this clean and working but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Oh man, I loved that movie...what a great pin to have!

#619 5 years ago

wow! you have a big basement!

#628 5 years ago

wow, I always wondered if anyone sold pins at a yard sale. they must have 100 per weekend around town in the summer. what a find! nestled in among the $0.25 books and $0.10 kids clothes.

#661 5 years ago

Great story Pecos! I think the restoration of an old piece of history is as much fun as playing them (or it will be if I ever finish one)

Picked up a 1956 United's Brazil EM today for almost nothing. Its an unusual table in that it has no flippers, I think the table tilts but am not sure. The backglass is a total goner: IMG_1986 (resized).JPG

But the insides and table are in almost mint conditionIMG_1985 (resized).JPGIMG_1983 (resized).JPGIMG_1978 (resized).JPGIMG_1980 (resized).JPGIMG_1981 (resized).JPGIMG_1982 (resized).JPG

Spotted a pin on an estate sale. The place was a hoarders nightmare. The guys running the sale said it took them 2 days just to clear a path to the room.IMG_0014 (resized).JPG

I talked them down to a price I was happy with.

The pin is an argosy EM and looks to be in great shape. My guess is something broke and he started piling things on it 20-30 years ago and it's been sitting there ever since. The back glass is perfect and the PDF doesn't even show any ball trails.IMG_0016 (resized).JPG

Aaaand on the opposite end of the spectrum, 1.3 Space Missions. My neighbor says I don't buy pinball machines. I buy do-it-yourself pinball kits.

Quoted from RobDutch:

Made a very good deal on these 2 projects last saturday They don't work but it shouldn't be a big problem. Translite/Backglass of both games look great.

Nicely done, I hope to get a Whirlwind someday!

#8156 2 years ago
Quoted from davebart5:

Another Mystery Castle has been found and yanked from the clutches of a basement getting no love. This one sat in a non-collector's house for 23 years. Prior to that it was purchased new in '93 to put in their music hall on Long Island then the owner took it home in '95 for the family to play with it. It's been there ever since...
Now it'll get some royal treatment and brought back to life.

Awesome, I love seeing the old machines being given some love and brought back to life!

Quoted from Pedleboy:

Just picked this Data East Simpsons this morning for a steal. Not in Perfect shape but overall good condition. It does need a serious cleaning and re-rubber. I have a rather large Simpsons collection and this will fit in nicely. The picture is only one wall of "crap" (as my wife likes to call it).
D.

Nice collection! the Simpsons will be a great addition.

#8376 2 years ago

Congrats. looks like it will be fun. I am continuously amazed by EM's and what is essentially computer programming using wires and switches. Gotta love the engineering side of EM's. Plus the play is fun on so many levels.

Wow, congrats to the first-timers! its a great feeling, having your own.

I am feeling good, got this little gem over the weekendIMG_2989 (resized).JPG its in rough shape but it plays.

So I now have a 60's machine, a 70's machine and a 80's machine. As soon as I sell a few more gallons of blood perhaps I can get a 90's machine!

Quoted from Zavadoza:

Just got home from an epic all day journey. Toddler puke (3 different times!), dog got in the trash at home, truck smelled rancid, 100 degree day, Austin traffic......All Worth It!
I just scored a mint LOTR with 216 balls played (72 games if no extra ball). Spent almost a decade in a storage unit. CL seller who isn't in to the hobby, but an engineer. Nobody has played this game. Bone stock, tested everything, and it's incredibly clean. I tried to buy a different one yesterday from a guy out of state and somebody scooped it up locally. I cant believe I got an even better one a day later! More pics to come. Just wanted to share (and sit down).

incredible! what a great find, congrats.

Quoted from tadowhere:

Picked up an RCT this morning....
In all i'm very pleased I went through with this and think I paid a decent price!

Awesome find. I played RCT when it came out on computer years back and loved it (though I found I could not design a decent roller coaster) then I played the board game which was fun. How is the play on the pinball?

#9100 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinkitten:

Added this HUO, 2 owner, 150 play Indy 4 today! I know he’s Williams’ Indy’s less popular cousin, but I’m a crazy Indy fan. Excellent overall, needs a couple tweaks and maybe a trough switch fix. Been looking for one for a while. Already have mods and blades ordered!

That Indy is great-looking. I didn't even know there was another one. Nice catch!

Quoted from Buckaroo:

Picked a cool title today. A Bally Black Rose. The game came with a little dust on the head but who cleans the top of the head anyway? No legs so a couple of milk crates will work just fine. No playfield glass to get in your way if you ever need to get a stuck ball out. Yep the playfield has a little more dust, maybe the glass is a good idea? Add that to the shopping list. Heck a little wax and this baby will shine right up. As far as mods i think the only one is the three different flippers. The game will play better with this mod. The display did light up when plugged in and went into factory reset mode. Should be just a fuse. Oh well, when will I learn.

That is a really cool looking game. Does that cannon in the center turn?
