Re: FS or Trade my Classic Stern Catacomb

I'm picking my jaw off the ground. Never thought you would sell it.

I've played it many times. Plays great and is in fantastic shape. Really surprised it is leaving your collection.

GLWS!

Re: OPL Friday, June 28 @ cdnpinballer

Thanks for hosting, Lee. Great collection and awesome host.

Always enjoy hanging out with fellow pinheads and talking pinball. It's been a great season and many thanks to Megan and Brett for their efforts organizing.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in September.

No way. Taxi is much better than Diner. With Taxi there are multiple ways to score. With Diner, Dine Time is the path to big scores if I remember correctly. I love the theme of Diner, but the game play of Taxi trumps it.

Poof.

Bag full of diamonds. Put it in the trash.


I like this idea. Think that's what I'll do. Thanks, Ian!

Will City Take Pinball Glass on Garbage Day?

I bought a pinball recently and the playfield glass is seriously scratched. Anyone know if I can leave that in my regular garbage as is? Hoping I don't have to break it up first.

Re: Stern Pinball - Black Knight Sword of Rage

I watched the stream. The Pro looks fantastic. Very fast. Look forward to playing it. The Premium/LE are let downs in my opinion. The upper playfield is essentially wasted. Basically the only thing to shoot is the cannon. And I like the ramp on the Pro over the limited playfield on the Prem/LE. The ...

Re: Stern Pinball - Black Knight Sword of Rage

I agree - electronics is cheaper but labour is not. Have you seen pictures of Stern's manufacturing? I don't think they are paying top dollar for labour. Likely taking advantage of new Americans looking to get a job. As well, advances in manufacturing have offset increases in labour. That's why ele...

Cripes, Tom! That was a hell of a list. I won't bother arguing all your points. I'll save that when we have a brew together :-) As for inflation..... Electronics are cheaper, in real dollars, than they have ever been. When I bought my first computer in the 80s it cost me about $1,200. Today, for $1,...
