Quoted from Topcard:

I'm already down for one, but I would take two if that's what was needed to make it happen.

we are at 14 now even if you did 2 and i did 2 that still puts us 4 short
i would really love to have this one done but i am not going to hold my breath

#52 2 years ago

Wade told me he would like to see Strange World done too, but as he's already booked out for the next 18 months I think we still have time to get to that magic 20.

#53 2 years ago

i will keep trying to enlist more people.

#54 2 years ago

One is the best I can do. Don't even own the machine but I'm sure one will pop up one day. Wade's schedule is probably 2001, followed by Jumping Jack and either Centigrade 37 or Abra Ca Dabra. That leaves plenty of time to get to 20. I like his production rate because it gives me time to decide and locate the machine. Surprised of the lack of interest Volley is getting.

I'm not. The chance of that getting made would be the same as the Gottlieb King Pin I tried to get going which could not make it past 10. Not sure why except both are considered B titles which I don't agree with, but it seems like the majority does.

#56 2 years ago

I did locate a King Pin thinking there was a chance. Have since sold it. Still committed if it is ever made.

I sold mine and picked up another one that has a great playfield so I'm not going to need a new one.

#58 2 years ago

If mine was in bad shape i will probably take one.Hope you gonna find the 20 total

i think king pin and volley are both A titles by a mile. but certain titles people tend to want to spend the 700 to restore because they are long time keeps and some titles even though they are A titles and good players they might not say forever.
i think that is the major factor in what title people want to spend $$$ on
i really like sky jump and jumping jack both really great games but I would not spend the 700 on a new pf because i could sell it sooner then later. were Atlantis is not going anywhere anytime soon.
i am sure others could name titles they plan on keeping and others would sell if needed.
i tried to get quite a few done with wade. the only ones i got enough people for were sing along and K&Q all the others did not make the 20

I'll buy if someone sells me their Strange World

#61 2 years ago

I just added a Strange World to the collection. Playfield has general wear. Not sure if I want to go whole hog and sign up for a repro playfield, but it is something to consider.

I don't just want the Strange World playfield; I want the whole machine! Hope to find one someday.

#65 2 years ago

When you find one it will likely need a new PF...

Think of it as an investment for your future machine!

I don't think that would be a problem for Wade.

#71 2 years ago

I'm in for one.

If it does not happen you know you can always just send off your playfield to HSA for a full restoration that would be a lot cheaper than buying 3 Wade playfields and look just as nice.

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah... maybe... the last EM PF I had professionally restored didn't end so well...

From HSA??

#82 1 year ago

Nope, done locally here in Australia. The guy does amazing work, but he'd never done an EM before and things like star rollovers are an issue if you don't treat them correctly when clearing.

Anyway... it's just pinball...

Debating on paying to have my current playfield restored or waiting to see if this will e re happen. Any more interest out there?

#84 1 year ago

interested

#85 1 year ago

If anyone tires of waiting, I will gladly buy your Strange World and take a spot on Wades list...pretty please

#86 1 year ago

if we want to try this again lets update the list. i know it has been awhile and some don't need it any longer and others wanted to get on the list. i think at the best we were was 14 out of 20 needed

so let me know again if you want one and i will revise the list

#87 1 year ago

I would still take two to make it happen if the interest is there. People should be aware it would be next year if it happens as Wade is pretty much booked up this year.

#88 1 year ago

2 for me

#89 1 year ago

I'll still take one. Would love to see Volley and Top Card done as well. Can't decide between Abra Ca Dabra or Jumping Jack. Leaning towards Abra.

#90 1 year ago

I would also take a topcard.

#91 1 year ago

I'm still in for one.

Nice pickup - cheapest SW sold in a while. PF definitely needs a repro!

I saw it 58 minutes after it had been listed and was surprised it was still there. Good catch.

This title has been on my mind for a little more than a year but finding one in my price range and within reach has been quite difficult.
