Good point Azatotht, sorry about that.
Someone from San Juan wanted to put an offer on this machine that he located. Was asking people what it was worth.

I wonder what the back story on this machine is? It has either live to the fullest or been discarded and forgotten about since it's birth.

It looks like it's got bird poop on it... so was probably outside.
Thing still powers up though, which is surprising!

I've seen more dirty at the Cineplex theatres in Ottawa. Man that AC/DC and avengers are super gross.

I played both last Friday. AC/DC plays surprisingly well. Avengers has many issues, most of which have been issues for over a year now.

I don't know who owns them, I figured Cineplex-Starburst did since it was a Cineplex theatre. Anyways when I went to see dead pool a while ago the AC/DC was so black you couldn't even make out the face in the middle of the playfield. The avengers wasn't much better. I think they may have been broken too. I wanted to try one of them out but people were using them as a coat rack so I couldn't. Maybe they have been cleaned and fixed by now? It was dead pool and it was awhile ago. Just my observation as a consumer, I figured they were starburst machines.

AC/DC has been cleaned with a dirty rag. Avengers is still covered in black sludge. If it wasn't for the translite you wouldn't know it was Avengers. They have both been sub-average and in disrepair for over a year.

OH ok. I don't know who owns them, I thought they were owned by starburst because it is a Cineplex theatre. I was just giving my honest observation on their terrible condition. I thought the "Thanks Ryan!" Meant he owned them and he was pissed about my observations. Thanks for the insight ALJO :D . I get it now.

Wow this is out of context for sure! I was sincere about the "Thanks Ryan!" Because starburst just took over the bowling alley from me and they can't even take care of there existing accounts. Good for them!

Anyway again thanks for showing the obvious Ryan!

Yeah what ALJO said made perfect sense. Duh, I don't know why I didn't figure it out :FP: . If that is how starburst takes care of all their machines, it's a wonder they make money at all! I mean, not only was no one playing them because of the horrible condition, but EVERYONE was putting their coats all over them and using them as a coat rack. Wow.

You should see the state of the machines on the showroom floor in Starbursts Toronto office. They are never taking care of and always have something wrong with them. I remember years ago they had an NBA that you couldn't see the playfield with all the dirt. And these are the machines they were showcasing to make sales. They really don't care.
