Metallicaaaaaaaa...jus a great pin...happy to pick this pin up...
Enjoy, one of the best.
Drug home my favorite EM today. Finally caught a local one after missing several over the last few years. Works 100%, just needs a bath, bulbs, and rubbers.
one of the coolest EMs ever made, crazy part it works 100%. 2 bulbs out that I replaced and wiped down and waxed. Brutal low scoring pin.
Quoted from bluespin:
I’m bringing this Robo War home tonight. I called the estate seller and she agreed to hold it for me so that I could drive down 400 miles from Atlanta. Of course many people tried to buy it out from under me, but she kept her word and sold it to the first caller (me). Game plays well but the playfield is dirty with no wear. Factory Mylar still on the field. Only issue is that the displays are out.
At least two people offered to pay more than her $600 asking price. People that are doing this are usually creating auctions, driving the prices up for all collectors. If you didn’t get the pin, just move on. No need to hurt your fellow collectors pocketbooks.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Fun EM. Guy had never had the coin door open (no key) and he has 3 28 inch legs and 1 30 inch leg on it so it sits a little crazy. Drilled lock and had it going pretty quickly. Rubber kit on the way and need to clean 1 more score reel. Had to completely tear down ball count stepper and clean but good to go now. Seems to be a possible lighting issue on playfield matrix but I am hoping it is just bulbs.
Quoted from FatPanda:
Brought home my first project EM yesterday. Not even sure how far I'll be able to get. Better hit up all the EM resources!

piece of cake. I have recently cut my teeth with some EMs and love it. Took lots of forum/internet searches, but i actually enjoy it more than SS/DMDs.
One thing I learned quickly. Clean and lube ALL stepper units if it has been sitting a while. Once I did that 95% of all issues went away.
Drug another EM home today. Does not even power up so not sure what I'm working with yet.
Quoted from fisherdaman:
That's so awesome! How did you find it? Craigslist, facebook, word of mouth?
word of mouth, she was practically in my backyard also. Just shows there are still lots of games out there. Found out one of my neighbors has a T2 in his basement so went over and offered to buy it. He wanted $4500 not working. Win some lose some i guess.
Finally got it home, has the diamond plate playfield, cabinet looks great, very little wear on playfield. Needs rubbers and some LEDs. Everything works. This will be flipped for cash to put towards another pin. The lady might have a lead on some other games. Probably will not be free but who cares.

Just got my first (and probably only) Back To The Future pinball machine! Picked in up this weekend and really excited about it! Got it more so to go with my Back To The Future collection, as opposed to a pinball collection. Either way its fun to play![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
looks to be in fantastic shape
Has great ramp shots. I have only seen 2 ever and the second is in my house. Got to play a super nice one a few years ago and have wanted one ever since. With what I paid for it and the $600 in parts I just ordered plus several hundred more when freeplay gets the ramps done I will probably break even on it one day if I sell.
Nice pick up today, old guy was going blind and couldn't play anymore. He has had it in his home for many years. Everything is in great shape and after a couple of tweaks had it playing 100%. Still has all paperwork and minty coin box. Does anyone know history on this game? Sure looks like grand prix stole this design.
I think this is like my 8th one. Couldn't pass it up, working board set is worth more than what I paid. Plays great.
