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 INDIAN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMachine 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.
BOW AND ARROW Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverMachine 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!
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!NeverA "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.
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)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThis 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'll try my best. This "doodle bug" beneath the playfield is a nice feature. It's going really wild from time to time after hitting the right targets. Early 70ies pinball at its best.
FACES Sonic (Spain)Set up, plays!NeverMy 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.
FAST DRAW Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverDid 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!
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.
GOLD WINGS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverCrazy 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)Set up, plays!NeverEarly eighties: me and my friends met "Gorgar" in our local pub. Never forgot it since then.
HARDBODY Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThis 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....  
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)Set up, plays!NeverEarly 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!
JACK IN THE BOX Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverNew plastics, new drop targets, new flipper assemblies. A real nice "Kampf-Flipper".
JACKPOT Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBought 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!
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)Set up, plays!NeverThis 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 !!!
JUNGLE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverFirst 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.
MAGNOTRON Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverVery 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.
MONTE CARLO Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverFor JIM PATLA and DAVE CHRISTENSEN there is always a place in my Collection. Brilliant Bally Pinball Design from the early 1970ies.
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, needs some workNeverJust 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....
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.
SMART SET Williams (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThis machine will be the present for my brothers 50th birthday in 2019.
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 TIME Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis 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).
SPIRIT OF 76 Gottlieb (USA)Set up, needs some workNeverAnother real classic. Great artwork. And designed by the brilliant Wayne Neyens.
STRANGE SCIENCE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverLove 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...
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.
TARGET ALPHA Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverWhat a great DROP TARGET MONSTER!!!
THE ROLLING STONES Stern (USA)Set up, plays!NeverI 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)Set up, plays!NeverIn my opinion, together with Guns 'n Roses, one of the best pins from Data East.
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.
XENON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBrilliant design. A great looker. My "Xenon" is in very good shape. No wear on the playfield.
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.
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.
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".
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).
GORGAR Williams (USA)Sold Pure Cult! The one who's buyed my second "Gorgar" is still happy today....
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.
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.
MEDUSA Bally (USA)Sold A damned cool pinball. Used to play it in our local supermarket back in 1982.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!

Du hast eine tolle Sammlung schöner alter Geräte zusammengetragen. Weiter so!

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 Very nice !!!
 From oscarspa on 05-20-2015 20:07:
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.
