Brought home this Williams Tri Zone today. It's actually really fun. I'm not sure why it gets so much hate. Probably because Gorgar was the next game out and had speech.

Got this really clean Funrise Star Wars. HUO and the previous owner said he just shopped it out. Boards look great too. $10,000 by Christmas I'll bet. 20150925_215324.jpg

Brought home this 1972 Bally Space Time yesterday. An older gentleman in town put this up on Craigslist several months ago for $1,000. I went, took a look, and explained to him the actual value, but he wasn't ready to get rid of it just then. I kept in contact with him over the summer and we ended up trading for a cheap Japanese skill-stop slot machine I had in my basement that never got played. Needs some love, but overall in pretty decent shape. Backglass is incredible.

Love my Tri Zone! It's a great game. Nice pickup.

I love it when I'm able to contribute to this thread!

I picked up this Dealer's Choice in a trade for my Satin Doll. It's nice to refresh the lineup. (Well, it was a lineup, but they seem to be going out more than in these days.)

She's a little rough around the edges and will need some cabinet paint, but she plays fast!

FINALLY acquired one of my grails. Bally Star Trek. I'm a huge fan of the show and plan on eventually having all of the Star Trek pins. Been searching for a great example at the right price for over a year. 700+ miles later and I couldn't be happier!!!20160619_203550_resized_(resized).jpg

I picked up this Bally Vector on Wednesday for $600. It wasn't working when I took it home, so it was a gamble on the displays/boards. I resat the rom in U6 and it fired right up. All displays perfect. Aside from one cracked plastic, this thing is in pretty good shape and should clean up nicely. Boards actually look great, and the batteries were relocated at some point. Backglass is 10/10.

Do y'all think this was a good price? I'm basically in the pin desert around here, so anything that comes available I leap on.


The missing gate between the left flipper and slingshot makes the game really damn hard. Any Bally aficionados or Vector owners out there have that part number for me?

#2752 3 years ago

Pretty damn cool! But my Zeppelin fandom really only goes as far as their hits, and my wallet has other projects to fund.

Who knows though? Maybe one day down the line that would be a cool swap. I'd really be interested if they added some music to the game.

YESSSSSSS. Brought home one of my grail pins this weekend! Haven't had a chance to start cleaning her yet, and there are a few issues with the trough optos, but she'll clean up really nicely. This one definitely fell right into my lap and it's in great shape. She'll never leave - that's for sure.20161007_165616_resized (resized).jpg20161007_165551_resized (resized).jpg

Got a nice garage find for a steal over the weekend. Guy had bought a house and the original owner left it. It's already starting to clean up nicely but this is what it looked like when it came in. Took a razor blade and a lot of patience to get all the tape goo off the glass. Didn't come with legs, but I had a spare set.20161204_122450_resized (resized).jpg20161204_122440_resized (resized).jpg20161204_122430_resized (resized).jpg

Quoted from Darcy:

That must explain the red, instead of black cabinet colour.

It does. PF art is also dramatically different. I think the backglass is pretty much the same though. I had a production version for a while there and really enjoyed it.

Didn't get good pictures, but I rescued this Harlem Globetrotters from a shed over the weekend. Backglass is pretty ratted, but the playfield has full mylar and will clean up really nicely. Cab is so-so but solid.20170401_193935_1491230987954_resized (resized).jpg20170401_193920_1491230990769_resized (resized).jpg20170331_151634_1491230992593_resized (resized).jpg

Picked up one of my grails over the weekend! Needs a GOOD shop job. One burned connector, no GI, and some oxidized metal, but the price was right and it was right in my backyard. Boards look great, but the rest of the game is filthy. Also missing a flasher above the trap door. My buddy Mike also picked up another CV (currently for sale or trade) and one of his grails, a TOM.

20180228_225331 (resized).jpgBoy do I love participating in this thread. Found this one one Craigslist yesterday afternoon about an hour and a half away. Was going to schedule a Saturday pickup time but the deal was too good to pass so I pulled the trigger and drove to get it last night after work. Didn't get home until about 11, but she's in great shape and the price was hard to beat. Glad I went because it turns out several people were trying to schedule Saturday pickups. It's always better to be the first one there with the cash.

Quoted from bloodonthepins:

This is one of the coolest pin collections I've seen. Which one is missing, the recent Stern one?

Thank you! And yes you're correct on missing the Stern. I'm going to start saving for a Premium or LE as soon as I have the new Data East LED'd and playing 110%!

#8661 1 year ago
Quoted from Black_Knight:

And don't ignore Bally's Star Ship, -

Quoted from Rensh:

Sorry but you have 2 to go, a stern and Gottlieb version

I would definitely buy those (though I don't actually expect to ever see a Star Ship in person) if I ever came across one for a reasonable price. I don't count them though because they're not reeaaaally about the show.

Picked this up yesterday with a nice project Lightning, which I've already sold to lotr_breath. Check out those hilarious drop targets. Who says the deals are dead? I got both for $450.

Picked up this Torpedo Alley last week. I had an interested buyer, but he's been flaking on communication. Might as well fix it up and add it to the collection. Just needs a good shop out and, like every game, some LEDs.

Picked up a good lite restoration project on Wednesday for a pretty darn good price. It's complete but not set up yet because my basement is out of room!

It'll need a little TLC and a good shop job but pretty nice over all.

The Force was strong with me yesterday! Completely filthy but working 100%! Can't wait to get this up and playing with the others. I really need to get some updated gameroom shots.

Very nice collection Pahuffman !!

Thank you!!

Quoted from pcprogrammer:

Nice collection of Star Treks. You really need the Stern one, most fun to play out of all Star Trek pins in my opinion.

Only one more to go! It's definitely on the to-buy list. I will spring for the premium/LE when I save up the money. I was going strong there for a while until that Star Wars fell into my lap. Couldn't turn it down!

Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

Thanks! The best part is that pin was played constantly for three days and the only issue I saw was a stuck ball on Sunday. For a pin that has a rep for being difficult to maintain I was impressed.

I've never understood this. The only unusual maintenance I've ever had to do on mine was clean the warp ramp diverter. Been going strong for over 2 years.

Let's go racin', boys! 400 miles, 8 hours, and $1,800 later and it's officially in the house!! Big NASCAR guy, big pinball guy, great deal. That's a win-win-win!

Needs LEDs, a shop job, and I'll have to troubleshoot the test car/garage, but who can complain at that price for an undocumented HUO game?? They weren't pinball people and said they bought it in 2005. I have no reason to doubt them, but who cares? It's in great shape. I'll upload more pics tomorrow.
