AC/DC PRO Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBeing a fan of this band since 1979 it has to be this machine from STERN to enter my collection. Great game. Fast, furious, always challenging. Steve Ritchie at its best! I bought the re-released "Vault" Edition. Used (Originally bought from Pinball Universe in germany in 2018) but in excellent condition.
AZTEC Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBack in 1980 or 1981 me and my brother played this pin in a local pub. Already solid state era, this was a very cool experience for the two of us during those days to meet with "EM". The reason i need to own this pin.
BIG DAY Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverSold to me from a friend of the famous "Mr. Litfin" - the pinball guru. A classic 60ies Bally machine. I love the clowns on the playfield. Very nice design.
BIG VALLEY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverEM Multiball at its best from 1970! But i have to admit that this game is similar in a way with "Capersville". But nevermind - gameplay is such fun!
BOOMERANG Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGot it! First time i ever have "Boomerang" within my hands. Never saw or played this machine before. Always was impressed by this unique backglass with the australian theme. We will see if it's a keeper. Looks similar in some way to "Jungle" (Gottlieb) and "Champ/Bow and Arrow" (Bally) which i both have/had in my collection.
BOW AND ARROW Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverMachine has been fully shopped. A lot of work as usual. Very, very nice EM-machine from Bally! Searching for the "single red post" from Grec Kmiec! Found it!
BUCK ROGERS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever2nd one. Sold near-by. Very strong machine from the system-1-era. Very, very challenging! In good shape!
BUCK ROGERS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy System-1-collection is growing! I met "Buck Rogers" in a local hotel in around 1982 or 1983. Found it really challenging in those days. Only one time i ever saw it afterwards. At autumn convention in Hamburg at Stefan Hoppes Pinball Location. Great game!
CAPERSVILLE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis is a real 1960ies Classic. Had the chance to buy one together with the WIGGLER. Couldn't walk by....Amazing gameplay.
CAPT. FANTASTIC AND THE BROWN DIRT COWBOY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverCapt. Fantastic, Wizard and Fireball: the "Big Three" you got to own. Proud, just proud of it!
CARAVELLE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverCool, old, very seldom seen!
CHAMP Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThe second "Champ" i own. A friend of mine bought this together with an oldtimer car in Braunschweig/Germany. In front he was asking me if i am interested. For sure, i was! After shopping it is a lot of fun to play. The 1st Champ i owned was getting a little bit boring after a while. Okay, this game is not that super exciting but it's difficult to cross 100 k. All the replays are set beyond 100k on three balls gaming to make it more challenging getting one.
CIRCUS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBrillant artwork! Was one of the very first EM i ever met with in the late 1970ies. Got a lot of games for only a little money. I remember very well. But faster than the speed of light all the games have been played. I was a novice in those day and only met with Solid State before. This is a totally different kind of gameplay. Was searching for a longer time. Don't know why - but "Circus" from Bally isn't offered that much nowadays. Got this machine from BERLIN. The couple was into WPC/WPC 95 and modern STERN games and wanted to get rid off this game.
COLLEGE QUEENS Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverNever had this in my collection or ever played it elsewhere. So it will get its chance. Hmmmm.....i am not sure if it will be a keeper. Looks very basic. But often especially these games bring you a lot of fun. We will see!
COSMOS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGreat Backbox-Animation which comes to life after shooting the ball "into the upper left orbit". Playing this game beams you right back into the late 1960ies. A great feeling. Enjoy!
COUNT-DOWN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFitted with Pascal Janin Board which is excellent. A Drop Target Monster. Always played by the guests in my location. Always exciting. Looks easy to play - but this machine can be a real dog!
DIPSY DOODLE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis machine spent so many years in the garage of its former owner who never ever repaired it. He sold it to me to be overhauled and being playable again. Dude - i had tried my best. This "doodle bug" beneath the playfield is a nice feature. It's going really wild from time to time after hitting the middle stand-up-target. Early 70ies pinball at its best.
FAST DRAW Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverDid you know that almost the same Layout was used on Gottlieb's "Amazon Hunt" in the early 80ies? All in all a very nice Pin with this special drop target feature (the two middle black-ones up!). Fast Draw is a sought after machine.
FIREBALL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNow in my collection (06/2015): One of the most sought after pinballs. Great to be the owner and I would particularly like to thank "hanbee" from pinball league Lemgo/Germany. Your pin is in good hands!
FIREBALL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Never
FIRECRACKER Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever2nd one. Sold near-by. Couldn't walk by. Always challenging to bring such a machine back to life. Let's try!
FIRECRACKER Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverOne of the forgotten classics from the early 1970ies. This machine offers such a great gameplay. Didn't expected it unless i played this machine recently. Got to have it. Then a great EM-maniac sold it to me. Thank you, good guy! And a big thanks goes out to Vestus who brought this baby to my location...
FLYING CHARIOTS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverDesign by: Wayne Neyens Art by: Roy Parker Any questions? Unusual cabinet design. Challenging gameplay (yes - this game is playable!!!). A masterpiece of art from the early 1960ies (11/1963). In great shape. Always loved the "Ben Hur"-like artwork. My first 2-Player from Gottlieb.
FOUR MILLION B.C. Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever2nd one i own. Looking forward to bring it back to life (Aug. 2021). This is a great classic from Bally with its unusual green colour and the multi-ball-zipper-flipper gameplay far ahead of its time. In one word: GREATNESS!
FOUR MILLION B.C. Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAs far as i remember, this pin was the ignition for me to be a pin addict. Back in 1975 as a small boy i saw it in a local restaurant and was quite impressed. No need to ask - 4 Million had to be a part of my collection. Very nice condition. Fully shopped by its former owner. Thank you for this.
FUN-FEST Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverVery interesting and challenging pinball from the glory days - early 1970ies. Yes - here we got the swinging target again. This item together with the changing point value by hitting it makes FUN-FEST a great game to play. Got this machine near-by. Couldn't walk by....(as usual...!)
FUTURE SPA Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy first Widebody-EE-Pin! Haven't played this in my youth. All in all seldom seen. Thanks to "Badebär" for selling me the machine. Stunning Artwork. This kinky guy in the grotto: where are his god-damned hands??? Yeah! Really a keeper i think.....
GAY 90'S Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverLooks easy and boring but this is a hidden classic which keeps you coming back to this machine over and over again. Not that often seen nowadays. My machine spent the last 45 years (bought in 08/2019) in a private cellar in Cologne/germany. Privat property since the middle 1970ies. Only little shopping was necessary to bring it back into great shape.
GORGAR Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverEarly eighties: me and my friends met "Gorgar" in our local pub. Never forgot it since then.
HI-SCORE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI had to have three pins from 1967. This was the second one frome this year. The trio is now complete. Together with "The Wiggler" and "Jolly Roger" they are all in my possession and they are working fine.
HONEY Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverEarly 1970ies Classic with unbelievable powerful bumpers. Very challenging although the machine doesn't look like it. High Scoring by hitting the drop target to reach the middle kick-out-hole is very difficult and keeps me coming back over and over again. A very nice looker! Thanks to Jürgen from Volkswagen Headquarter Town Wolfsburg for selling Honey to me.
INCREDIBLE HULK Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHappy to own this System-1-Game because it has a very nice design and theme. Was sold nearby. Don't remember playing HULK ever before. Think this will be a keeper. Also fitted with the P-1-Pascal Janin Board! Excellent as usual!
IRON MAIDEN PRO Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverA real heavy metal pinball! As a die hard metal-head this has to be a part of my collection!
JACK IN THE BOX Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverNew plastics, new drop targets, new flipper assemblies. A real nice "Kampf-Flipper".
JACKPOT Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverOne of my favorite EM-Games. Was sold near-by and so i took my chance.
JACKPOT Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverSecond one. Sold my 1st one. I love this machine and did my best to bring it back to life. And i also kept the space between the slingshots and the flippers...this is original and makes game-play so much more exciting! This machine has a really good plastic over the jackpot reels. Much better than the one i owned. I also installed a Chime Unit which usually wasn't fitted in machines of those age. They only had the "Big Bell" which is missing inside of my Jackpot. Really cool with chime unit. Did it before on "Honey".
JOKER POKER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAround 1980 we played "Joker Poker" in our local supermarket. One of the best target games ever made. Always exciting.
JOLLY ROGER Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverThis machine hit the market exactly the year i was born. Will never leave my collection. The ignition for me to have three pins from 1967: Williams (Jolly Roger), Bally (The Wiggler), Gottlieb (Hi-Score). Yeah !!!
JUBILEE Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverOpen space! You can go or shoot were no one ever walked or shot before. These are the early 70ies and this is....Jubilee. One of the most discussed pinballs ever. There are these 5 balls of steel which keeps you coming back over and over again! Believe me!
JUNGLE Gottlieb (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThe 2nd "Jungle" i own. First one left very soon but i had to admit that this Gottlieb Pin is such a lot of fun. Was missing it a little bit after it had left. Now this JUNGLE will get the second chance.
JUNGLE LORD Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverJungle Lord (Bombjack MPU Check machine). Cool that i had the change to buy such a classic. Stunning! Works fine and remembers me playing this pinball in one of the most forbidden and rotten pubs in the early 80ies in my hometown as a small boy. Enjoying the smoke of all the cigarettes. Near-by was "Defender". The chief of this pub was a master in playing this arcarde game. Long ago since i last met "Jungle Lord". A great classic from Williams!
KISS PRO Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAlways liked the game since it entered the market in 2015. Bought the Pro Version which i think has a lot to give to the players for the money. KISS is one of my favourite bands from my youth - still like them today. Had the Solid State Bally KISS within my collection but it had to leave a few years ago. Very nice design and for sure a classic - but it was too easy for me to beat. This new machine from STERN has so much action and -what is very important for me - all the old, classic KISS Songs from the early years. Just a great Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Pinball.
MAGIC Stern (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverA very classic EE Pinball from Stern. Haven't seen this machine anywhere so far. Got it near-by. Think this will contain this special feeling during game play we all had in the glory days when pinballs were easy to understand and not crowded with things.
MASQUERADE Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverGreat Backbox Animation! Found it in an old ladies cellar in my hometown. Unbelievable.
METALLICA PREMIUM MONSTERS Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverKill 'em all! Not only one of the greatest (Thrash) Metal Bands but one of the best pinballs Stern ever built. Very difficult to get one of these machines (we have 2020). So i have to thank the former owner that much. Great guy! This is the Premium "Monsters" Edition from 2013.
MIDDLE EARTH Atari (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMy first Atari pinball. Played it on location in around 1979/1980. Never ever saw Middle Earth afterwards. What is really cool about my game: it was one of about 20 machines which were on tournament in 1978 in whole germany because of the "Rocky Magazin Flippermeisterschaft '78". There is still one patch found on the front right side of the cabinet. This is history, man! I had the opportunity to get the original magazines from those days which fitted the story. Rock'n'Roll, Baby!
MONTE CARLO Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverGot it nearby. Better condition than the other "Monte Carlo" i once had. For JIM PATLA and DAVE CHRISTENSEN there is always a place in my Collection. Brilliant Bally Pinball Design from the early 1970ies.
NIP-IT Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThe story so far: when i met "Nip-It" for the first time about 10 years ago at one of our evenings from "Flipperliga Hannover" i really didn't like those "cheesy" backglass. This together with the art on the playfield let me soon leave the machine. Years later i recognized that this machine is fully packed with such great details. First: the unique GRABBER. Second: the "Zipper-Flippers". Third: Bonus Fourth: Multi-Ball.... A big WOW !!!! goes out to Nip-It! Yes - it's not that easy to receive such a machine in 2019. Bought it from a good guy in bavaria/germany who had this in his collection for about 35 years. Thank you so much, guy!
NUGENT Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNeed to have a STERN-EE-Pinball in my collection. Nugent is cool - Nugent is Hardrock and Metal!!!
OXO Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverJust bought from my colleague "Badebär" from "Flipperliga Hannover". This is a very challenging strategic Pinball from Williams. Happy to have one of these games. Very nice and good looking artwork. Relatively easy to maintain.
PLAYBOY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverA superb classic from Bally. One of the first Pins i ever played in the late 1970ies. In a local bakery! Sick....
PRETTY BABY Williams (USA)In storage, workingNeverThis is my first 2-Player Game. Fitted with manual ball lift.Exciting!
RAVEN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never2nd one. In better shape than my 1st one which was already nice! Kept the alternative Translite but didn't put it in. This machine has to be ORIGINAL as i knew it from the 80ies. Always good for a game! And...standing only 1 meter away from my HARDBODY this gives me a cool and nostalgic feeling. Looking at these two "pearls" from this era.
RO GO Bally (USA)Parts machineNeverGot it in really bad shape. Rusty and dirty. I recently made the decision that this machine will stay as a part machine. The effort to bring it back to life would me much to high.
ROCKMAKERS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverZipper-Flippers! Again! I kept this machine in mind since i first saw it as a part of the collection of "Flipperliga-Colleague" Wizard several years ago. Not that often seen nowadays. Really liked the strange Artwork and Playfield design from the beginning.
ROYAL FLUSH Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverHad the chance to get my second "Royal Flush". Bought it from "Badebär" - a good guy near-by. Great classic. Great design. Great gameplay. Gottlieb EM at its best! Had to put in a Chime Unit which was missing - as usual in germany!
SHANGRI-LA Williams (USA)Set up, plays!Never50 years old! "Born" in 1967! A classic from those days which will extend my collection with machines from this year. Thanks to "Mr. Startrek" from Munich/Germany who picked it up for me from an old lady.
SILVERBALL MANIA Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis is the machine which stands for what pinball is all about. Classic! Enough said.... The Apron of my Silverball Mania was signed by JIM PATLA, designer of this machine, in May 2016 while he was visiting germany (Flipper Mania in Heusenstamm).
SINBAD Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis is one of the System-1-pins i have always loved. It's within my favorite 3 of the System One's. Look at my other Gottlieb's and you will see who are my favorite ones.
SLICK CHICK Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverSupadupa classic from Gottlieb. 1998: played it on PC (Microsoft Pinball Arcade). 2015: played it "in real" in Wolfsburg at the great pinball exhibition at the "Phaeno". 2017: it's mine! My oldest pin so far. From the great "Neyens/Parker" Duo!
SMART SET Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAlready my 3rd "Smart Set". Easy rules - but a lot of fun to play. The perfect machine for competition on a long evening together with your friends!
SOLAR RIDE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAnother great System-1 Gottlieb Game from the late 70ies. One of the very first pins i ever played on during those days. Great to be a part of my collection!
SPACE MISSION Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNever2nd one. Shouldn't have sold the 1st one many years ago. This is a classic!
SPACE TIME Bally (USA)In storage, workingNeverThis deep tunnel is a great visual effect. Bought this machine from a member of "Hannover-Pinball-League". The early 70ies: great times for Young pinball Lovers. The Apron of my Space Time was signed by JIM PATLA, designer of this machine, in May 2016 while he was visiting germany (Flipper Mania in Heusenstamm).
STRIKES AND SPARES Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverOne of the very first Pins i ever played. Like "Playboy" this machine was placed in one of our local bakerys in early 1979. So Long ago....i'm getting old. Brilliant Bally EE design and game-play.
STUDENT PRINCE Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverTo have one of the rare Williams "Zipper-Flipper" (or how they called it "closing flipper action") games is just....GREAT! Was searching for a longer time and finally (09/2021) got this from someone who had this machine for about 50 years in his cellar. Bought it for his kids in the early 1970ies. A crazy story - as so often!
SUPER SOCCER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFitting right into the EM 2021. The real "Fußball Flipper". I once owned the "300" game which i found had a brilliant design but boring gameplay. Super Soccer is a little bit similar. But the Bonus Counting is just stunning! This Supper Soccer Pin was sold near-by so i got it. Will get its chance! Has to be shopped fully in front of gaming.
TARGET ALPHA Gottlieb (USA)In storage, workingNeverWhat a great DROP TARGET MONSTER!!!
TIME WARP Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBanana Republic! Just cult! Could be found on location when i was "on tour" as a young boy in the early 80ies. The banana flippers are amazing! In those days it was such strange for us. The former owner of this machine had normal flipper bats inside and was playing with the small "Tilt" Ball. Very crazy but he didn't know about it. First thing for me was buying the banana formed Flipper bats. Sadly you can't get the original light-blue Flipper Rubbers here in germany. So i took yellow ones.
WIGGLER Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Never1967: Had to have three pins from this year. Now the famous Wiggler has arrived! Together with Jolly Roger and Hi-Score i reached my aim. This machine is so much fun to play. Unbelievable! Always challenging.
WIZARD Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverA must have! Nothing else to say about "Wizard". Good gameplay. Near solid state coming a few years later.
Pinball machines that gorgar used to own in the past
(the following games are no longer part of gorgar's collection)
pinball nameDBmanufactureris it for sale?notespictures
300 Gottlieb (USA)Sold Just a very cool feature inside the backbox. A very unique form of counting the bonus. Played this game first time in 2012. Got to have it. Why did i sell it? Well - gameplay got boring after a short while. Although it was a brilliant looker it could leave my collection to a guy who was searching for "300" for a long time. He had special memories with this game.
BIG INDIAN Gottlieb (USA)Sold Machine needed to be checked all over. Someone had left bad work on one relay of the reset bank. Not funny. Tried my best... and solved the Problem. One contact was broken and missing and had to be replaced. Maybe the former owner had Problems doing or seeing this. Nice pin from Gottlieb's glory days. Hard, fast and challenging gameplay. Not easy to reach the replay.
BLUE RIBBON Bally (USA)Sold Easy but very challenging gameplay. This game will get its chance. At the moment i don't know if it will be an keeper. But: pur 1960ies fashion! And....Ted Zale put his hands on it!
BRONCO Gottlieb (USA)Sold Bronco and Fast Draw in line: two very strong Pins from the late Gottlieb EM-Era with a lot of fun for players of all kind.
CAMPUS QUEEN Bally (USA)Sold So far it was the oldest pin of my collection. Very hard and challenging game play. My game was in excellent condition. It left to a good guy. Why did i sell it? Well - i love hard and tough and challenging gameplay on EM games. But Campus Queen was that hard to play and beat that it really drove me nuts. To reduce my collection the decision was.....CQ - you can leave. Sold it to a member of Flipperliga Hannover.
CAPERSVILLE Bally (USA)Sold 2nd one. With original painting on cabinet and backbox. A great one! Left my collection and is now in good hands at "Sheriff_2012" - a real metalhead from Flipperliga Hannover!
CAPT. FANTASTIC AND THE BROWN DIRT COWBOY Bally (USA)Sold A "must have"!. Was searching for a longer time. Prices are exploding. After some work and shopping, it works fine now. Substance is really good. Only 44100 games played. Playfield looks nice.
CAPT. FANTASTIC AND THE BROWN DIRT COWBOY Bally (USA)Sold Icon of the 70's. Couldn't walk by as it was sold nearby. In nice shape. Only had to fix some small things. Crazy what former owners did to the 2nd left hand side flipper...
CHAMP Bally (USA)Sold The pinball with the pinballs. Yes - some kind of "rip of" from Gottliebs "Hi-Score" backglass design. But anyway: always had it on my "to buy" list especially because it has this cool backglass. Gameplay is not that exciting for more experienced players, but always fun after a long working day.
CRITERIUM 75 Recel (Spain)Sold Backglass is "badly injured" by a bullet being fired in a gun fight in a Pub in Berlin/Capitol of Germany. As the former owner told me. Believe it or not. Second Spain machine i own.
DOCTOR WHO Midway (USA)Sold This is a very challenging pin. Absolutely unterrated in my opinion.
DOGIES Bally (USA)Sold Strange and beautiful artwork on the backglass. Another real Zipper-flipper classic from the 1960ies, produced by Bally. Challenging Gameplay. My "Dogies" is a mixed-one. German Backglass but american playfield. Must have been changed by one of its former owners. The machine is also not finally being re-painted (cabinet/backbox).
EIGHT BALL Bally (USA)Sold My first pin. Thanx to "wizard" who sold it to me. The virus of collecting took over with "Eight Ball".
ESCAPE FROM THE LOST WORLD Bally (USA)Sold Another crazy game from this late-80ies Bally Era. Got it near-by so i couldn't walk by. Will get its chance. Will it be a keeper? Not sure at the moment!
FACES Sonic (Spain)Sold My first EM-Pinball from Spain. A remake of the Williams "Grand Prix". Nice looker and great player. Sadly the cabinet has been painted fully in orange by one of its former owners.
FIREBALL CLASSIC Bally (USA)Sold I always thougt it was almost impossible to get the "real" FIREBALL from 1972. So i choose this one which is a very fine and nice looking re-make of the original one. Gameplay is stunning. Had "pimped" it with a few LED's like the guys of "TNT Amusements" showed on UTube. After purchasing the original this machine could leave in good Hands (gringonaut).
FREEDOM Bally (USA)Sold One of the first Bally machines which went Solid State. Mine's got the original "old/early" Backglass Version. Nice and solid gameplay.
FULL HOUSE Williams (USA)Sold My 1st One-Player! Rarely found in Germany. A lot of fun hitting the slot reel targets to receive the right position. The reels will stop then to give you the chance getting 100 points for every hit. Also very difficult and challenging is hitting the left- and rightside target which, after beeing hit, lits the 100 points bumper in the upper middle. You'll need this shots to make the big points. If not it's almost impossible to reach the replay. This is a machine you play 30 games in line without getting bored. I like this stuff...
GALAXY Stern (USA)Sold This is one of the best early electronics from STERN. From early 1980. Haven't seen it in those days on location. Met it much later at conventions. Not too easy and not too difficult. Always a challenge to spot the GALAXY letters. Think this machine will stay. Update, short before selling: This machine is cool and it's classic pinball. BUT....what i never liked on Solid State Pinballs: if scoring is not balanced right and you are able to reach the "million" without that great effort. Sadly, "Galaxy" is among this machines. A great game for beginners. Just boring after a while for the advanced one. And so GALAXY could leave my collection....
GOLD WINGS Gottlieb (USA)Sold Crazy 1980ies cult! One of the first things i did was re-connecting this unbelievable SIREN! Now i know why the operators split the cables and unplugged the fuse. Make some noise...!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had the opportunity to buy the TOPPER! This makes the machine looking really HUGE! What a Monster. You'll have to raise your room ceiling.
GORGAR Williams (USA)Sold Pure Cult! The one who's buyed my second "Gorgar" is still happy today....
HARDBODY Bally (USA)Sold This machine is pure 80ies Trash. A must have if you grew up during the times when HARDBODY was on location. And i met this machine at that time. This lady is so cute.... This machine is underrated - definitely. Gameplay is a lot of fun and always challenging. The big killer of this game was and is this crazy backglass. Give "Hardbody" a try.....just do it!
HOT SHOT Gottlieb (USA)Sold Drop Targets and Pool Billiard. What else do you Need? Didn't thought that this pin is really challenging and a lot of fun to Play. First i found the backglass a Little bit cheesy but now i like it more and more.
JACK IN THE BOX Gottlieb (USA)Sold Bought from a young couple nearby who had bought a typically 1960/1970 house with a big "Partykeller" (room for parties in the cellar). They didn't want to own this machine although i told them which classic they have. So what should i do....?! Jack in the Box, of course, is one of the best games Gottlieb ever built. Looking forward to overhaul this pin and give it to someone else who really knows and understands its nostalgic value.
JACKPOT Williams (USA)Sold Bought in 08/2013. Wasn´t in good condition until i started shopping the game. The Jackpot Reels are very cool. Bought new ones in Holland. The old ones were dirty. Sadly, the Reel cover plastic is damaged a lot. But all in all it's nice to have the 1971 Jackpot now in playable condition. Never ever put in a post i.e. between the flippers and the slingshots! There has to be this gap! It makes playing incredible exciting!
JAMES BOND 007 Gottlieb (USA)Sold 1st widebody from Gottlieb added to my collection. Not sure if i ever saw this machine on location in the early 1980's. I remember it maybe in a local pub in my village. But didn't had the money to play it! Or, typically Gottlieb, it was out of order. Just standing there. Rarely found in germany. This "Time Unit" Feature is outstanding and makes a lot of fun. Nowadays! Back in the days the players hated the machine for this feature.
JUNGLE Gottlieb (USA)Sold First i didn't like it that much because of the comic artwork which doesn't grew on me. But it has some kind of addictive gameplay which i never thought of. Maybe a keeper.
JUNGLE LORD Williams (USA)Sold Not working machine with a good basis to bring it back to life! All the best for its future owner! Could leave my collection.
JURASSIC PARK Data East (USA)Sold It's a nice and challenging game. My's got the topper, too. This is found rarely or very expensive. Didn't care about JP very much in the past. But now i have to admit that this pin is really cool. Well, i like Data East.
KISS Bally (USA)Sold German Version. Very nice condition. Although produced so many times it's hard to find one for a "normal" Price. Love that classic gameplay. Why did i sell this game? After playing it for a while i had to admit that KISS is much to easy to master (for me...). I am into metal and hard rock and really love KISS since the late 70ies. And the machine looks awesome! But the decision grew: leave my collection and delight someone else.
MAGNOTRON Gottlieb (USA)Sold Very challenging Pin. The addictive Horseshoe-Captive-Ball with the Kick-Out-Hole to earn the Bonus is always exciting and keeps me coming back over and over again. I like the unusual backglass, too.
MEDUSA Bally (USA)Sold A damned cool pinball. Used to play it in our local supermarket back in 1982.
MONTE CARLO Bally (USA)Sold For JIM PATLA and DAVE CHRISTENSEN there is always a place in my Collection. Brilliant Bally Pinball Design from the early 1970ies.
NBA FASTBREAK Midway (USA)Sold Unusual and challenging pin. Definitely underrated.
NIGHT RIDER Bally (USA)Sold Hit the Spinners until they bleed! Great very early Bally EE.
NITRO GROUND SHAKER Bally (USA)Sold One of the best backglasses ever designed.
PAT HAND Williams (USA)Sold Never ever played or saw this pin before. A very interesting wide and open playfield. It's hard to reach Extra Ball by hitting the four JOKERS.
POWER PLAY Bally (USA)Sold Great early Solid State from Bally. This is a really challenging Pinball. One of the former owners smashed the playfield glass and built a very weird construction afterwards. Really crazy what you often see buying a new game. Take a look at the pics...
RAVEN Gottlieb (USA)Sold RAVEN! HARDBODY! Together as one in my collection. Highlights! Played them both in the 80ies. Icons of the Century! Underrated!
ROYAL FLUSH Gottlieb (USA)Sold Another machine which impressed me because of the very beautiful card game design. Although it was build in very large numbers it is seen seldom. And believe me...i am getting around within the scene... Happy to own it now. Gottlieb-EM-Classic from their late EM-Days.
SHERIFF Gottlieb (USA)Sold Although early 70ies, this machine is packed full with great stuff from what Gottlieb could give to the players in those days. Especially this monster drop target bank (which is resetting!!!) is a real pleasure. Great....just great!
SMART SET Williams (USA)Sold 2nd one. Actual condition: not that funny. But i think dirt is the worst thing of it all. Will begin to restore the game in a while.
SMART SET Williams (USA)Sold This machine is a nice and simple late 60ies Williams Pinball on which you con play some games from time to time. Strange that those kind of machines never get boring for me. Maybe it's because of you can calm down on them after a long working day. Love those Williams stuff from that era.
SPACE MISSION Williams (USA)Sold It's always fun to bring an EM back to life. But sometimes not....By far the heaviest work i had to do. This pin was over and over full off "Kontaktspray" (contact cleaner). I could have killed the guy who did it!!! Haven't count the hours i had to clean and clean and clean. And afterthat there was a mysterious problem with the advance bonus which directly made the machine "tilt" if hit as the fist contact after starting a game. Afterthat the machine was running fine. But could leave now. A nice looker!
SPIN WHEEL Gottlieb (USA)Sold Bought it nearby from two guys who had a Garage full of cars. Thought this machine has potential also it was dirty and sticky and the backglass was missing. Had to be fully shopped. A cool late 1960ies classic from Gottlieb. After hours and hours of working and repairing it is running fine now. The Spinning wheel is a cool Feature. I made the corresponding spinner running like wild using a drop of "Waffenöl". So the arrow light is running and running before it stops. And how lucky i was when i could find the missing backglass in Hannover/Germany. Cheers!
SPIRIT OF 76 Gottlieb (USA)Sold Another real classic. Great artwork. And designed by the brilliant Wayne Neyens.
STAR POOL Williams (USA)Sold Strange Williams Drop-Targets. Not seen very often on games of this age. A hard to beat EM-Pin with the same idea of Spinning Wheel used many years later on Tales of the Arabian Nights (TOTAN).
STAR TREK Bally (USA)Sold A real Bally classic! Those were the days...Sadly "Mr. Spock" passed away in 2015. I will always remember him by looking at the nice backglass artwork.
STARDUST Williams (USA)Sold This machine was never on my "to buy list". Never heard of it before or played it in the past. Now after it has been fully shopped it's a fine pin to play some games from time to time. The Spinning Arrow is always challenging. Looking nice in a dark room with full illumination on. The Backglass is in good condition. Early 70ies cult. A relict of the flower-power era.
STRANGE SCIENCE Bally (USA)Sold Love it or hate it. I always loved it. Very specific gameplay. Totally crazy backglass design. This machine is something very different. One of the best out of the 6803 era. Not for everyone...
THE CHAMPION PUB Midway (USA)Sold A seldom seen machine which i always liked. Unusual gameplay. Very exciting to bet your score and fight against the big ugly boxer. This pin is always getting attention by people who are not so into pinball (like me....). Very glad to own one of this not that often produced "The Champion Pub" machines.
THE ROLLING STONES Stern (USA)Sold I like the band, i like the Music and theme ....and the pin is awesome, too. Not that often seen because a lot of People didn't like "The Rolling Stones" from STERN. I liked it from the beginning. Nice Music and smooth gameplay. Not as easy as it seems. For beginners and pros. My pin is HUO after it has been a NIB sold to a german owner.
TOMMY Data East (USA)Sold In my opinion, together with Guns 'n Roses, one of the best pins from Data East.
TOTEM Gottlieb (USA)Sold Another nice looking System-1-game which i exchanged against my Spirit of '76. Think this deal was okay so far.
TX-SECTOR Gottlieb (USA)Sold One of the best System 80b games. The machine wasn't running. Left to a good guy. His aim is to get the Pin being playable again. Good luck on your Mission!
XENON Bally (USA)Sold Brilliant design. A great looker. My "Xenon" is in very good shape. No wear on the playfield.

This is an awesome collection of games. Such a great variety of older and newer games and a mixture of classics too.I also enjoy reading the stories associate with each machine. So many of my favorite games are in your collection and would be a thrill to play them again ,if I could. I’m planning a trip to Germany in the near future and might have to look you up to get an invitation to see/ play your fabulous collection.

Beeindruckende Sammlung. Meine EMs gibt es leider nur als Visual Pinball, der Platz ist begrenzt und meine Vorliebe sind EEs und neuere Geräte.
 From packie on 03-11-2018 00:09:
Awesome Collection!

Beautiful collection of machines, I would really like to have a Gorgar, Silverball and Xenon in my collection. Fantastic job of keeping the 70's-90's alive and well!

Du hast eine tolle Sammlung schöner alter Geräte zusammengetragen. Weiter so!
 From runbikeskilee on 06-13-2016 12:49:
Just looked at your collection: very nice! I recall most of your machines fondly.
If you ever get to the Baltimore/Washington area of the USA, you are welcome to come play the Drop-A-Card.

I see you live near Wolfsburg. Wondering if that the same Wolfsburg with a VW factory? I used to have an 80s Wolfsburg edition Scirocco.

Very NICE collection, congratulations !

Incredible collection of EM, congratulations!!!
 From redrolloverlit on 04-24-2015 07:40:
Great collection, the EMs you have are great games. Your Bally EMs are real classics, especially Capersville.
 From hendrikm on 09-15-2014 06:41:
A beautiful collection with lots of detailed photographs and lots of classic pins. The George Christian Eight Ball must surely be the ultimate early Solid State machine to own, with more than 20,000 units sold during the 70's, this must surely put it right up there with the best machines ever made like Twilight Zone (if not the best considering the time period).
 From bandwagon on 08-20-2014 09:29:
Great collection with beautiful classics of the 60`s. Congratulations!
The Ted Zale designed "Capersville" and "Wiggler" are
great machines from that era and the artwork of Jerry Kelley
is a class of its own and still stunning.
