Re: Thunderbirds Pinball Complete

Thunderbirds pinball (RRP US$4995) Holy shit, $5k USD MSRP??? That's the dream right there, isn't it? Stern Pro pins are $6200 USD MSRP. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sterns-game-release-history If you can produce fun and good looking games and serve them up for $1200 USD less than a Ster...

Re: Thunderbirds Pinball Complete

I really hope Homepin does well and is in a spot to really prove themselves over the next couple of years. Manufacturing in china and building all the parts in house is a bold move and I hope it's a success and pays off with many new games. And maybe... even a Chinese pinball boom eventually? Get th...

Since this is logging the Bluffs games, I should document what I found while there after xmas: Firepower II Issue: a second ball would randomly kick in to shooter lane while playing, and kickout from said hole would often kick numerous times. Diagnosis: tight switch on the ball lock hole I first che...

I don't want to get in to this again, as it has been done to death elsewhere, but they give away a huge amount of old parts and cabs outside their building. Most stuff is never taken away.

Re: Fire Escape in Ohio

I'm not sure if $2100 USD is on par with what they go for these days, as they don't pop up very often. I loved playing it at PinCon last year.... hope it's back again in 2018 ;) That one was arranged by myself and a like 6 others to get there and land gently in to Josh's hands, and is now out in pu...
