Re: TAF For Sale

I think they only count as lowballers if their offers are outside of the normal range. If everyone is a lowballer, then no one is. If everyone is offering you less for a machine, based on it's condition, that might be a sign of where it is in the market. Addams Family is an A-list title. It's on alm...

Re: 2'x12' Arcade sign

Reminds me of that Imperial Arcade sign in Ottawa. Did that ever get put back up? Was huge, don't know if whoever got it found the space.

Re: LIVE Jersey Jack Reveal @ 9:30 EST (Pirates of the Caribbean)

There are almost no professional arcade machines being made in 2017 that are under $10k. It was the boom-bust cycle that made any part of this hobby affordable in the first place, but let's not forget that these are still machines made to be operated at commercial venues first and foremost. For peop...

Re: LIVE Jersey Jack Reveal @ 9:30 EST (Pirates of the Caribbean)

Watching the stream now. Things that are really impressing me: - upper playfield rocking action, and how the entire right side of the upper PF drains down - the left ramp with the whirlpool diverter - the fact there is a hole under the upper flipper! - pops spin when hit, and there is even one right...

Lovely to see another original game making a strong impression. That "20" launch in to the trunk" seems like a risky mech, but the game looks beautiful

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

Today I added action figures to my Bullwinkle, just like the machine Player One was selling at Pincon. That R&B is sitting in my basement now. It looks pretty but the boards were hacked up a bit. had to buy a new power supply and have some transistors replaced in the mpu. Once that's all servic...

Re: LIVE Jersey Jack Reveal @ 9:30 EST (Pirates of the Caribbean)

Everything about JJP screams Premium. If JJP has enough demand to meet their optimal production rates at that price, then hey good for them. While entirely unaffordable for many of us, their games are GREAT.
The whole "Stern Premiums" market has some serious competition now.

Re: Thieves WHY do people still support them?!?!?!

You know this thread saddens me, mostly because of how people are telling pinhead how to act. I met the individual in question back in 2002 through Geoff. I didn't like him back then and I don't like him now from what I am reading. I am very rarely active in the community anymore because of people ...

Is there any way everyone can just confront him and resolve the situation?

Wow, great work!

Would love to see a code redux for this game, where the pinball becomes the primary mech, and the video is more just a video mode that can be earned.

My mind reels at the logistics for starting a company like that, but still rooting for them. Is that right wireform just flingi...

Re: 1976 Lord Of The Rings plaque

Man, that brings me back. I had that poster as a kid. It's terrible that it was cropped like that to put on the wood. The border had just as much detail as the rest of the artwork. Every time I looked at it I found something new. Repros of the original poster are found pretty easily, if interested....
