In fact, we are also due to visit the Pindude come springtime since his collection is always in flux in the up direction. I am hoping for a springtime visit, but will likely be later du...

FS: Five Jacks trade stimulator (coin flick)

I'm thinking of letting go of my Five Jacks trade stimulator. These were made by Pace manufacturing starting around 1930. An old salt in the slot world told me this is most likely a reproduction cast done in the 1970s. I am asking $550. (originals sell for like $1500 CAD) This machine is all metal a...

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

My latest machine in the lineup.... Circus! Congrats. That's pretty cool. What's the back story? How did you learn about it and then acquire it?

It never ceases to blow my mind how many other gravity type games of chance and skill there are besides pinball as we know it here. Especially the gambling type ones, my personal favorites indeed

2. Tron. Yes, another Tron but even better. Imagine what could be done with the full colour display now! I hope they start doing "2.0 Vaults" or something like that, re-releases with an LCD screen. So many great Sterns could be re-sold 15-20 years after they came out. (LOTR of course) (I also hope ...

Re: Stern Led Zeppelin ??

Not a fan of the rising spinner but the Pro looks like it will be a blast to shoot. I like Pro models having drop targets.
It reminds me of Star Wars except Ritchie listened to all of my complaints about that game.
Looking forward to playing this in 2022 when the code is being hailed ;)

If LZLE is sold out, do we know if it was typical LE pricing or Kapow LE pricing?
We still don't know if it's just a Star Wars reskin or another reskin of the home version "The Pin"
