FS/FT: Heavily Modded HUO Tron

I have a heavily modded HUO Tron for sale or trade. Has 3D translite which is the best one IHO. Game is in fantastic shape and working 100%. Still smells brand new. I just replaced the EL wire and did a top level shop job: cleaned ramps, cleaned playfield. Completely plug and play Mods include: - Ar...

I'm in the same boat, Lee. I have to bail. Sorry to miss this one.

See everyone in Allentown.

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...

Re: Stern Pinball - Black Knight Sword of Rage

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,...

Re: Stern Pinball - Black Knight Sword of Rage

I am a little upset about no upper PF on the Pro. I mean BK has always known for the upper PF. How can they not include it on the Pro? Pinball is too popular for it's own good. Like a snake eating it's tail. Price increases and decrease in quality will kill pinball. I really don't think $8K NIB wit...

The website is down with the domain name requiring renewal at the start of the month. They must have known this one coming. Why no announcement or big "final" day sale? Even their Facebook page makes no mention of them closing:

Re: Midway-Adventureland in Ottawa Closed

Wow! I got hooked on TZ back in the day when they were more of a large arcade. Midway, thanks to their awesome tech at the time -- Mr Pinhead himself, kept the pins in good working. I figured when they went all kiddie stuff that it was a money machine for them. Always a new market being born :-) Sur...

I was following this thread on Pinside lately and last I heard they were teasing us with the unboxing. Nice to see that they finally did.

Re: Unboxing of a 25 years old Jurassic Park pinball machine

Very cool. Hope that is going to a home and not an arcade -- hard to tell in video. Looks like a location. If it's going to be routed might as well buy a used one.
