After dreaming about it for over a year I bit the bullet and picked up a swweett Road Kings!

Not the most loved table....but we all know what's up when you battle the road kings!

Figured we might want a place for resources, issues, and post apocalyptic biker talk.

Will you be removing the mylar? It looks like nearly all the pf has been protected and looks pretty sweet underneath.

Mine was a labour of love but worth it. I though it was a pretty good pin even though it doesn't get the love.

Good luck with the project

I just played one at Louisville Arcade Expo for the first time. I've always loved the artwork and sounds. A couple have come up pretty cheap but I always missed them. I wouldn't mind having one someday. They have one of the best aprons ever.

#5 4 years ago

Sweet!!!! Just got mine and I'm starting to put an order together for restoration. Might even get a restored pf...we'll see.

I've got big plans for RK!!! Working on expanding the rules via proc. When I get that setup (next few weeks) I'll post looking for suggestions!

I plan on being able to play the stock game or the new one!!!

Cool!! Keep us updated with the restore. I'll do the same.

Wow. Did you do that by hand or created new decal? Beautiful. I would love to do that to mine. In talks to get a new pf but might just retore mine... Yours looks great!!

Agreed. Love being able to see the frustration in my face in the apron reflection . such a fun game!!

The grey dot shading on the cannon and the blue dot shading on the "smoke" were decals I made in a drawing program. The rest was a mixture of hand painting, spraying with frisket mask and using paint washes.

I used the paint washing when I needed to replace paint in the dithered areas on the playfield. I tried to create a decal to reproduce this effect but nothing really came close. Also, I wasn't really convinced that the decal colours for this would be strong enought to not be washed out by the paint layer underneath. Pretty much all of the pf had some sort of attention

I just keep looking at how beautiful that pf is!!! Wonderful!!! So glad to see this club catching on!

#13 4 years ago

I know @nitram is redoing his machine. And I need some insert decals. Anyone in a position to hi res scan (maybe 600dpi+) the inserts and I'll vectorize them and speak to someone about getting decals made. For the most part mine are OK but would be nice to have.

Thoughts?

#14 4 years ago

Love that topper!

Well all six of us are here.....now what...???!!!....lol...........Joey

#18 4 years ago

I have been in touch with a guy in PA selling a partially populated pf. Has the black ramp and a few plastics. Some definite flaking at the top. I was hoping to get the clear ramp, a few plastics, and some other stuff off this but everything I really want isn't there and it's rougher than mine so not worth the pf.......shame....I ALMOST want to get it but.....I can spend $175 (plus shipping) another way on my RK so let me know if anyone is interested. He's looking for $175.

One of the very few system 11's I haven't owned. I wouldn't mind having one someday if the price was right,

Hey, no matter what, it's right in the middle of the awesome 80's

#20 4 years ago

Color changers in the backglass under the roadkings name look sweet, like a crazy post apocalyptic storm is brewing, it goes good with the other storm effect on the right with the 4 455's. I'll post a vid later if i remember.

#29 4 years ago

Here's a question. I know we all know and love RK. But what would you change about the rules or game play of you could.

Full disclosure....I'm working on a PRoc extension I'm calling Road Kings Apocalypse...... Also a custom game down the road based on the Z grade movie The Red Skulls. Which I have the good fortune to work on

So I'm going to prob make this happen. I have a tonnnne of ideas but I'm open to more.....

#30 4 years ago

Very cool man..........you know...I almost started this club a few times...but always said..."naa....will be too small"...but I'm glad you did....I'll get back you you on the extended rules....and look forward to seeing the movie...............Joey

#31 4 years ago

Yeah it's a small group. Only. 94 registered owners on pinside. Then I'm sure some of those are people who don't have it anymore or are parts machines. Then another cut for people into the game like we are.

So small numbers but worth it all the same. I'm in the Hook club and that one is hit or miss for content but is buzzing but bc there is a rules expansion project going on.

I see this game KIND OF like iron man. Very simple layout. But a tonne of potential!

#32 4 years ago

RK was my first pinball....I ended up selling it to RotorDave and it now sits in his massive System 11 collection in New Zealand. RK has some of the best speech callouts in pinball....the attract mode "who among you shall challenge us?" is great!!

#33 4 years ago

I love my RK! Very underestimated game IMO. Mine looks like new hehe. I like the timed lock feature, and shoot for millions!!!!! Now is FS with some other pins because I need to finance something else, but I may keep it.

#34 4 years ago

As an owner of 3 Road Kings, I count 3 times I suppose?

After starting the P-ROC Road Kings 2.0 project, I found one cheap and I bought it 'just in case' and later found another with a better playfield, and the plan is to make one of those 3 a very nice game. That's been a plan for years now though... :p. Well, maybe the next few years. Right now 2 of my 3 games I've lend to friends.

Great to see a Road Kings owners topic started, having more enthusiastic people for this game. Even better to see another remake/rewrite for the rules! It'll be a lot of work, but it's great to make a good game with nice rules on an already great layout (IMO).

#35 4 years ago

If you haven't checked it out Road Kings 2.0 is pretty cool. Inspired me:

#36 4 years ago

I thought RK 2.0 project is dead.

#37 4 years ago

It might be done but Road Kings Apocalypse is coming!!!!

#38 4 years ago

Still on vacation. Should get the inserts out asap when I get back. Also going to try to find a print place. I think the guy I've used can do clear. I'll check

#39 4 years ago

I've had one 15 years ago
Always liked the game..

#40 4 years ago

I have a go on insert decals with any ink except white. Do I think we're good

#41 4 years ago

My buddy has one, and he has it at our League location. Has a mean ball hop, but another league member pointed out that Cliffy makes a new version of the inlane guide to eliminate the hop. We are ordering some up and will install when they arrive.

Any time now. Sorry, got busy and sick. I'll get them out as soon as possible. Anyone have a scan of the detour decal on the center drop target?

#44 4 years ago

I got a brand new unstuck drop target decal.....is this of any help.....???.............Joey

Joined the club... I've only played it one other time since its original release - it's awesome ! To be clear, System 11 retro awesome

#47 4 years ago

GREAT! Where did you get that? I didn't think they were made so I was going to see if I can make some.
