Grabbed two SS Bally projects pins last week. Looking forward to playing them after getting them up and running for the fist time this century.
Quoted from Whysnow:
congrats! 2 fun games! That supersonic looks like it is in great shape!
Yes Whysnow, both pins have been stored for 20+ years. Stored away from damaging elements and both appeared to have been very well maintained when last played. Just the usual rechargeable battery acid damage on both. They were best case scenario condition and offered up with 1 grainy photo each and described as "corroded" in condition. Very happy with both 6M$M and SST!
A real nice BK followed me home yesterday. I got my last one 14 years ago and let it go for a DMD pin that I was hot to get at the time. This one will be bolted to the floor as I have been looking way to long to find this one.
I forgot how much I loved the Black Knights evil jeering laughter when hitting the magnasave button just a millisecond too late!!!
It's been nearly a decade since I sold this Rollergames to a friend of ours, but he's had his fun with it and now RG is back home. I forgot how nice the reds in the cabinet were and I was thinking on the way to pick it up yesterday evening that it was going to need a stencil/repaint. But it is good to go.
I've been looking for a nice Captain Fantastic for a while now to replace the one that I sold years ago. This one just needs a little TLC refreshing before I bolt it to the gameroom floor.
Quoted from firefighter:
Had a empty stall for a week and filled it today with Hot Tip. It came with a lock bar with holes in it which can’t be right.

Those holes are for plastic straw access to sip beer spilled on playfield glass.
Two projects joined the gang.
'85 Bounty Hunter
'84 X's & O's
These were basically, no line, walk up and play at pinball shows in the past and were surprisingly fun players. IMO.
It'll be unlikely if I can get to them this year, but I'm looking forward to playing them once they are playable.
