One man's rubbish is another man's rubies. One man's junk is another man's jewels... ahem...

my wife thinks maybe it was a "spite" toss... maybe you got the "break-up" deal of the year.

Whatever the reason you can't beat the price. I would like to find one of these some day (cheap) because I have a neat re-theme idea for one. It really isn't a bad game but like others just gets a bad rap.

I thought I got a good deal on Genesis, you got a great deal!!! It's a really fun pin, and satisfying jackpot. The original bg is fugly, however, it gets the most conversation out of my collection. From now on I will slow down around dumpsters.

Say, do you happen to know what that board to the right oh the CPU does? Mine has no connection between the CPU and that board at all. It has me very curious.

In other news, the playfield multiplier keeps going up the more robots you build.

Also, I'd be curious to know exactly how easy/hard the vari-target shot is on yours.

But good find. I think I also put that in your reddit thread.

I shared this story on RGP a few years ago. My in-laws were driving out to see us for the holidays around 5 years ago and picked up an old woodrail (1951 Williams Shoot the Moon) that was sitting next to a dumpster. I put about 30 hours into and it cleaned up really well. Still have it.

So you mean the scene in Tommy where he finds a working pinball machine in the junkyard could really happen? (-:
