Re: Solar city or Target alpha

Yeah, I saw that too. But from description this sounds like it is good condition or at least good enough condition to be fixed up or restored to original. Price reflects this. Looking for something that would be tending towards the un restorable or at least not worth the effort as too far gone. Than...

Solar city or Target alpha

Looking for Gottlieb solar city or target alpha project to retheme. This means game should be mechanically complete but not necessarily working. Playing field can be totally worn, cabinet can be serious scratched and faded (but not rotten or water damages) and backglass can be flaking, cracked or ev...

JETSONS re-theme OTHER TOUCHES

After I finished my first re-theme I had a couple of “should have thought of printing that” moments once it was all done. With this in mind, I tried to think of all the little things that I might want printed on the game when it was completed. Last time I noticed that there was enough room on my pla...

JETSONS re-theme ELECTROMECHANICAL Additions Part 2

Next, I noticed that getting the ball is in the upper arch is somewhat challenging and requires either a lucky rebound or added shaking help for the upper pop bumper. Again inspired by Bally games, I added an alley to allow players to skill shoot into the upper arch. The front of the alley has a spi...

JETSONS re-theme ELECTROMECHANICAL Additions Part 1

For some added game play experience and extra customizing challenge I decided to add several playing field features to an already packed playing field. First off, I added a ball save gate that opens with the upper kick out and closes on an added star rollover or alley gutter rollover or the start of...

JETSONS re-theme BACKGLASS

The back glass process very similar to the plastics except you print on glass this time (or plastic if you want) and pre-cut the glass before printing. After you have aligned all elements, design your CYMK later. This time however, you need to be careful on the white layer in that it needs to have a...

It was painted with primer and then top coated with acrylic white. Splatter effect added by using compressed air held close to a paintbrush dipped in black paint ...

1975 Gottlieb's SPIN OUT Race car themed pinball machine. Not many of these left around and even fewer in this kind of condition. Back glass is very good with no noticeable flaking. Small sponge bleed in upper left. Playing field is fantastic. Super clean with minimal wear, polished metal and perfec...

Built in 1971 “Astro” features some of the early art work (his second after Dimensions) of Gordon Morison. Paired with designer Ed Krynski Gottlieb made a scant 500 of these machines for the American market. They made an export version under the title of “Star Trek” for the European market. The “sta...

As such, I figured I would write up my two cents of input. To start, in shor...

Here is another 1970‘s Wedgehead title that is a great game, yet has seemed to slip under the radar of the general public. A bit odd given the popularity of football. And ironically, the machine pictured below sat for a couple of months just outside Indianapolis (which was the up coming super bowl s...

Gottlieb’s - Spin Out review

Gottlieb produced about 2850 of these units back in 1975. The dominate feature is the roto-target positioned right in the middle of the PF. The roto-target (or spinning target) also cleverly gives this machine its theme and title - “SPIN OUT”. This title, because of its similar PF layout, is often s...
