After 20 years this summer, I have finally brought my unicorn home. The game I have loved since being 15 years old. My grail pin - Attack from Mars is finally here and home.


#2097 3 years ago

Not going to lie, when I picked it up at the Ohio Show and parked it away from my room, I almost couldn't sleep. It wasn't that I was worried; it was more that I couldn't "know" it was safe. I knew 99/100 that no one would disturb it, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned that I'd come to the Jeep and see broken windows and the game was gone.

I don't know what it is about B/W games; they just seem so much heavier than Sterns. I can push TWD around all day. AFM, I almost have to get a running start on (with socks on carpet).

Great to have the grail pin home. All I have to say to everyone: don't stop chasing your unicorn. No matter how far ahead it seems; it is all about "how badly do you want it". It took 4 solid years of waiting since I jumped into this hobby, but it happened!

Almost feels like some grand tale or journey has come to an end.

Won't deny, already wondering "what's next?" . GB Prem in June, and then................................SS? TAF? TZ? I dunno. Only time will tell...!

Quoted from Skypilot:

Not going to be red long! Get that thing inside. We only have 3 days of sun in Ohio and you choose today!

But I am in Tennessee .

Quoted from Zampinator:

Brought this oh so shiny HEP AFM home today! This thing is ridiculous!
Big thank you to Mike.

Well technically, it was yesterday, oh who cares I'll post it anyways....!

It has to warm up....

Quoted from Max_Badazz:

Oh hell yeah ....... picked this bad boy up during a lunch break road trip today (and avoided the Boston rush hour doing so)
I will not shoot any gorillas while playing it, but please keep your kids away from the wall around it
If I had the cash and room, I would have come home with a TAF too.
Congo is sitting outside my office window .... torture

Sounds familiar. Thank you for passing it up. I bought it .


Swapping out the first TAF for the one in the thread directly above.

Traded JM for a DM. Man, the PF on this one is S-O nice!!!

Yeah, brought this bad boy down the stairs with that lil' dolly. Beast mode 2.0.

And the help of a neighbor .___.

Called Larry from Flipping Out Pinball. Next Escalera that he gets in stock = mine.

Tired of doing this stairs crap with these pins. DM as a widebody did it for me. I'm ready to take the Escalera plunge.

Quoted from jmountjoy111:

Pretty sure I've played that Demoman. Super nice ramps too

If you played it in Louisville, you probably have indeed. Rob flame-polished these ramps, and man, they do look super awesome. What a stand up guy; it was nice to meet someone like him, do a straight trade, no cash from either of us, both tell each other EXACTLY what to expect with each game (pros and flaws of each of them), swap them, load them, shake hands, and call it a day. Love fellow pinsiders like that!

Also, want to give a public TY to Weirpinball for making this one possible. He knew I was looking for a DM and was ready to trade JM, and he found this one for me. Super cool move on his part!

That'll teach you to try to get away from the sickness!

Quoted from weaverj:

HELL NO it's not ok! Get out! j/k .

They don't all have to be A-listers to be a good time...!!

I have such a soft spot for the underdog (read: cheap games ).

It doesn't come home until late December/mid-January, but it's 100% paid for with Trent at Tilt Amusements, so what the hell.

Time to return to the Carpathians for the final time. Bolting this one to the floor with AFM and TAF as its sister machines.

These three will be keepers. Others may come and go, but AFM, TAF, and BSD are safe.

CFTBL, SS, or Alien SE are next.

What do you do after you have successfully completed a deed in lieu on your home and you're financially free?

You buy your first NIB game (GoT Pro) in over 2 years!!!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day to ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Give JJ at Games Exchange a call. This was as trouble-free as it gets.

Brought home JM about 3 weeks ago. This is the fourth time I've bought this game. Geez, I have a real problem.

Made an 11.5 hour journey each way to pick this one up. Slim pickings in the Florida Panhandle - you want a pin, you better be ready to be a road dog...

20181216_205530 (resized).jpg

FTR, Stern pins fit in a 2015 Fit.

20181217_110745 (resized).jpg

Easy to do by yourself with a 1.5" diameter PVC pipe : )!

20181218_103542 (resized).jpg

Had to move the safe and the pool table to make space - no problem. A 3 ton low profile jack and a HF lift table, each with a 2 x 4 shaved to 17" long to keep the weight distributed across the pool table!

20181218_115436 (resized).jpg

20181218_115448 (resized).jpg

And just like that, 700 lbs pool table moved with a simple push : ).

20181218_115227 (resized).jpg

After a bit of grunting, the safe was moved, and Autobot # 105 took its new home! Polk sub coming in tomorrow and LED ColorDMD on Saturday!

Quoted from yzfguy:

Did you drive 11 hours there not knowing if it would fit?! I would have an ulcer thru my stomach before I got there!

Hehehehehhe. I had a pretty good feeling. I took my GoTPro to a Squadron event here at Eglin AFB, so I had a pretty good feeling about it : ). Jury is still out on B/W games. I do know Scott Weir brought a ST:TNG in a 2009 Fit with zero issues. Helped him unload it myself.

Picture here is of our Tech Advisor and the Director of Operations (read: good friends in high up places....all about the networking...!) playing after the Squadron event. They were like (2) 15 yr olds ribbing each other and having a great time!

Quoted from Darcy:

WOW! You might qualify for Pinsider of The Month. That is way more further than most of us would drive for a pin.

Accepted : D!!!! Not going to deny, it is a long drive for any non-NIB game down here in the Panhandle. Last two trips have been 16 hours round trip and this one was about 23 hours roundtrip. Once I have enough $$ saved up, I will head back to Ohio for another game or two on my radar : ).

I know and trust a couple pinsiders up in that area very well and don't mind making the drive KNOWING the pin I am getting was babied with TLC.

Oh, and the reason why I got Autobots goes back to TPF 2018. Future Mrs. made it very clear: "We have to get one of these!" May have taken me 9 months, but I made it happen!!!

Quoted from waldo34:

Ha, turns out you were right. Also brought home a Stern Playboy.
[quoted image][quoted image]

Playboy really is a fun game. Not insanely deep (look at my collection, I prefer fun over deep rules), and the toys/mechanisms are so bad ass. This game today would be like $10K as is or $6K with like 2 bash toys and none of the present toys.
