BLACK KNIGHT 2000 Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI'm very excited about this project! Thanks to a close friend, I've got a winter project AND it's a game that has been on my wishlist for a while! What a soundtrack!! UPDATE: November 2018, the restoration is complete and it turned out amazing!It was such a fun project.  
BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverVery nice BSD purchased from a very nice guy in Regina, Saskatchewan. Included in the purchase was a colour-DMD, Coffin Mod, Tombstone Mod, mirror blades and a few other goodies. I have been searching for a BSD for about 6 months and snagged this one via Pinside. It's surprising how just sending out cold-call messages to game owners actually yields results! Purchased this game in a package deal including Johnny Mnemonic.  
EARTHSHAKER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverIT'S SUNNY DRIVE TIME! This just in! Great find in nice shape but dirty! UPDATE January 2019: Playfield restoration complete but cabinet still has bumps and bruises. It's decent in the cabinet department but not collector quality. New ramps, CPR Plastic set, posts, rubbers, domes, LEDs (including flashers), slingshot parts, pop bumpers rebuilt will all new components. There was MAJOR playfield damage near the entrance to the main ramp. A previous owner/operator created a "homemade" ramp flap out of white metal and used a wood chisel to recess it into the playfield. When I replaced the ramp set, an area of 2" x 2" was gouged about 1/4" deep! Not cool! I created an overlay decal using Photoshop and had a decal company print it on vinyl sticker material. It turned out very nice and it's barely noticeable! After that was fixed, I installed a Playfield Protector so a pinball will never actually contact the decal  
FISH TALES Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy first "Grail" pin...found it, bought it, keeping it! Full LED including backbox. Beautiful cab without fade. Super-bands really improved gameplay on this pin! UPDATE: MAY 2018...Complete top-side shop complete with new boat ramp, new plastic set, star posts, rubbers, mirror blades, flipper rebuild. Still love my Fish Tales!!!  
JOHNNY MNEMONIC Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI wasn't expecting to buy this Johnny Mnemonic but when there's a package deal to be had, ya gotta take it! I really enjoy playing this game at my buddy's place (Malibu-ss)! It's fast, full of flow and has a TON of fun loops and ramps to shoot for. People dog the theme because the movie was terrible but I'm a fan of cheese (both the edible kind and the pinball kind)! Very nice example minus the typical cabinet fade...I swear they should just officially say that Johnny's cabinet is Black/Yellow instead of Black/Red! The good news is that the seller included an entire new set of cab decals with the purchase and some other goodies!  
LIGHTS...CAMERA...ACTION! Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverWhat a fun and quirky pin! Purchased in April 2019. All of the issues were fixed in August 2019 along with a complete teardown, rubber and LED job. Plays and looks great now!  
PHARAOH Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverA beautiful Pharaoh that has spent the past 20 years in a really nice Rec Room! I was offered this game through an old friend and I'm happy I grabbed it! It looks as though it was recently shopped and cleaned too.  
TALES FROM THE CRYPT Data East (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPicked up from a guy who has owned it for 15 years and it was set up in his dry basement. This is a game I've wanted for a few years as I LOVED the TV show as a kid! The pin was dirty and had a few minor issues but everything is back up and running 100%. The playfield is absolutely gorgeous on this one!  
TAXI Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFound in a garage...was in storage for 10+ years! I'm an instructor at a trade school and during my class intro I told the students I was into pinball. One student piped up and said his Aunt has a "Crazy Taxi" in her garage just sitting there. I knew it wasn't a "Crazy Taxi" and told him I was very interested. She was willing to give it to me but I had to force some cash on her! Very nice condition Marilyn Edition!  
TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverJust picked this one up! It wasn't booting and the display did not work at all. After a few hours the game boots and the display board was swapped with my spare driver board. All is good now besides an entire row of switches not working. I will fix that issue soon but for now, it's time to clean this VERY DIRTY game! UPDATE September 2018: Full mega-shop is complete. Removed the playfield and removed, cleaned or changed every single screw, post, component on this thing! It plays just like new now with the Playfield Protector and the LEDs from Pinball Bulbs and Rick Exner look amazing!  
THE ADDAMS FAMILY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Never  
THE GETAWAY: HIGH SPEED II Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPlayed the HELL out of this game as a teenager! Acquired mine from my boss in a trade deal. Playfield fully LED'd out. Super-bands and rear cabinet lighting also installed.  
THE SHADOW Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverCurrently in transit from Toronto, Ontario. I'm very excited to own one and will update when it arrives!  
TWILIGHT ZONE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverIt was a long road to purchase my TZ! I'm in LOVE!! This was the first game I truly "obsessed" about purchasing. I had a pending deal on one that fell through and that just fueled me to step up my hunt! Ending up finding this one locally with the assistance of a few good friends. No cab fade whatsoever and only a tiny wear spot on the playfield in a really odd location. Set it up, plays amazing but had a weird issue of the upper flippers shutting down during Powerball Multiball and LITZ. Bay78 burned a copy of 9.4HC ROM which cleared up the issue. I was running L-3 ROM originally.  
WHITE WATER Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAcquired locally from a friend. It's a project but has a lot of promise and potential. Purchased with new boulders, LED kit included. Really nice topper with new dome. Plays nice! UPDATE: Full topside strip down and shop job. New Ramps, removed mylar and installed Playfield Protector. New cabinet should be ready by Sept. 2017. Looks amazing!

ELEKTRA Bally (USA)Sold Very dirty but partially working. Needs some connectors replaced as it took reseating a few of them to get it to boot and play. Backglass is nice, cabinet is fair and will need a little attention on the underside. Boards look ok with the exception of a few toasty components on the driver board. UPDATE January 2019: While waiting on parts for Earthshaker, I completed a mega-shop of this pin! New plastic set, flipper bats, plates and rebuilds, rubbers, LEDs. New MPU from the Weebly dude and other major board work on the driver, lamp and sound boards completed. This game was my most frustrating job I have tackled since entering in the hobby over 12 years ago! I'm glad it works 100% now but there were days I wanted to chuck it in the ditch! There's not a job I dislike more than repinning EVERY SINGLE CONNECTOR in the backbox of classic Bally...had to do it on this badboy!  
F-14 TOMCAT Williams (USA)Sold My first pin was an F-14 Tomcat and I really regretted selling it years ago. A friend hooked me up with this one that he found and I'm so happy it's in way nicer condition than my original copy! UPDATE: Full top-side shop, LED'd, rubbers, new star posts, and a playfield protector installed (which makes it look and play amazing).  
FUTURE SPA Bally (USA)Sold Picked up November 2019. Non-working but in nice condition. Very Dirty! I got it booting reliably after finding the 5101 CMOS RAM had failed. Snagged a chip off of one of my donor boards and it now boots and starts a game. There are still some issues with it but they are likely connector related. Unique layout and a risqué art package for sure!  
GHOSTBUSTERS PRO  Stern (USA)Sold My first NIB pin and it was worth it! Super fast and challenging gameplay! Airball protector and Cliffy kit in the mail as we speak. Code version 1.11 currently installed.  
JOUST Williams (USA)Sold New cabinet, complete top-side shop job with rubbers, star posts, many leaf switches, target decals, flipper rebuilds and new bats, flipper/start buttons. Inkochnito Bridge Board installed to fuse/protect lamp matrix. MPU, Driver and power supply all rebuilt and bulletproofed by Chris Hibler (well-known board guru) complete with all new male headers, some caps and PIAs. All female IDC connectors changed to Trifuricons c/w new housings (MPU, Driver and Power Supply). Make me a cash/trade offer. I'm in the market for an Addams Family but possibly other high-end titles or multi-pin deals. Games like Funhouse, Lord of the Rings, Dialed In, Scared Stiff, Metallica, Diner, Dr. Dude, Bad Cats are all of interest to me.
LASER WAR Data East (USA)Sold Shop job completed July 2019. Love the 80s sounds and gameplay. A simple ruleset with challenging goals. It's a keeper!  
RED & TED'S ROAD SHOW Williams (USA)Sold My first game that I'm having shipped. It's en route from California right now and I'm so excited!! More info when I have it in my basement... UPDATE: Arrived in October 2016. Full shop and LED job after I moved it downstairs. Plays 100%!  
ROAD KINGS Williams (USA)Sold Restoration is almost complete! Just waiting on a Playfield Protector and a PinScore LED display set. Turned out really nice!  
ROCK Gottlieb (USA)Sold Just Picked this one up. It isn't booting but seems to be a connector issue. Very nice condition but needs a good shop job! I can't wait to play it! UPDATE: Got the game to boot up after finding a bad connector...these darn Gottlieb Edge Connectors can be brutal! It boots and plays great now and I'm really enjoying the game!  
ROLLERGAMES Williams (USA)Sold Routed all of it's life. It's VERY dirty but is cleaning up nicely. New LED display and many other parts are on their way so I can do a mega-shop!! Such a fun game!! UPDATE: Fully shopped and LED'd out. Looks and plays wicked!  
SEAWITCH Stern (USA)Sold Stored in a Sea Can for many years...bought it "as is". Cabinet and playfield are in very nice condition. The backglass has some loose art on the left side but the art is all there. I'm looking forward to going over it and seeing what it needs to get it running. The boards are all very clean as a previous owner had installed a remote battery holder! UPDATE November 2018: New plastic set, rectifier board, flipper bats, rebuilds and plates, some posts, rubbers. Repinned connectors to the rectifier board as well some minor board work (a few dead transistors). It looks super clean now and is a blast to play! Can't wait for my Cliffys to arrive!  
STRANGE WORLD Gottlieb (USA)Sold Picked up April 2019. Cabinet and backglass are near perfect. Playfield is decent but has some wear and planking. Still very presentable but I’m considering installing a new playfield when Wade Krause makes them this year. Very fun EM pin!! UPDATE August 2019: This game is now for sale! My "grail" is coming to my basement so I have decided to sell my Strange World. Hate to see it go but I'm getting the pin I've been after for a very LONG time! Fresh clean/wax and rubbers. Works and plays 100%! Selling for $2000 USD ($2600 CAD)...message me if you're interested and I can send you pics.  
TRIDENT Stern (USA)Sold   
VOLLEY Gottlieb (USA)Sold My 2nd EM ever! This game looks like a fun one for sure! Drop target mania! It’s almost working...just a little more troubleshooting and it should be up and running real soon. The playfield is immaculate, cabinet is nice but there was a bit of flaking on the backglass that a previous owner spray painted from the inside. I’ll have to find a new glass or just live with it. UPDATE September 2018: IT WORKS! The "Ball Count Unit" was sticking and once I saw that and freed it up, the old beauty fired right up!
