CENTAUR II Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis is a brilliant game with magnificantly detailed artwork. I looked for one with a flawless playfield and finally found one. Shooting the ORBS drop targets in order ups the level of skill - but is gettable which is good. 5 ball multi ball for its time is brilliant.
CENTIGRADE 37 Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Never1978 Electro mechanical brilliance. The artwork is just classic pinball art. It is a great picture of a girl trying to clone herself and you helping her by getting to 37 degrees. The game play is also a notch above the rest with drop targets, bullseyes and a skill shot - all to be got in the right order to maximise points - and of course, trying to move the thermometer to 37 degrees to clone the girl and get the special.
CIRCUS Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverWhat amazing artwork! Perfect playfield and all brand new plastics make this just beautiful to look at. Love the widebody play - even of it is a little slow . . .
CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeA nice flowing game - it just feels good to play! Playfield condition is spot on. Backglass is close to perfect - looks great.
FATHOM Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverGreat looking game. The back glass is a reproduction by Bally and looks really good. There is some obvious touch up work by the top abc rollovers, but it is in a spot you can't actually see so not too bad. The rest of the play field is excellent. Had to do work on the sound and Lamp boards and now it plays perfectly - and the sounds are brilliant.
GRAND SLAM Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeThis is the 1972 version. Baseball themed game which really stays true to baseball. You load your men up on the bases and then try to hit a home run. My personal favourite.
LAST LAP Playmatic (Spain)Set up, plays!NeverThis is just so different to anything else. Mixed in with the just incredible condition of the perfect playfield, backglass and cabinet - I just had to have it. We needed two last laps to make one as the parts are difficult to get hold of. Wasn't sure if it could be done but here she is, looking great and working perfectly. Love the square bumper, all the different sounds and the very different sized score displays.
PARAGON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverIn excellent condition. The all important backglass is perfect and play field has no wear. I drove 2 hours in to the victorian countyside and bought this off a guy who has had it in his shed for years - covered in dust. What a find! Shooting through the spinner and then through to the waterfall is a blast. Getting all of those in line drop targets down is tough!
ROBOT Zaccaria (Italy)Set up, plays!NeverBought this one after looking for it for over 3 years! Very Exited. What amazingly bright and vivid colours. The paint they used has kept the playfield in perfect condition. Backglass has a few scratches though but pretty good. Never tire of the little ROBOT heads popping up to be knocked down. The amount of speech is amazing - it has something special to say about almost everything in the game. What is says when you tilt it is very amusing!!
SPACE INVADERS  Taito (Brazil)Set up, plays!NeverThis is an original 1978 cocktail table black and white video game. This is an original Japanese version as it has all the Japanese writing on it. While it is not technically a pinball machine (well not at all!) it is such a great classic and the most influential video-game of all time, I think it is worth a mention here. Is this the only working original cocktail table space invaders in the world - maybe . .
STELLAR WARS Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis is such a great shooters game due to the widebody and the sounds are fantastic. Took me a while to find one that had a good playfield.
STRAIGHT SHOOTER Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeThis is from 1959 and has to be one of the most difficult of all! It really uses the old gravity, especially to make the ball bounce high when it hits the post between the flippers so it is important to have it raised. I like playing it as it is so addictive - but it is a tough game.
SUPERMAN Atari (USA)Set up, plays!NeverJust bought this one. Great condition. Backglass is amazingly perfect! The playfield is good, but I can see some wear as expected, although it has been mylared now. Some of the lights are a little sunken, even with the mylar on. The cabinet has been resprayed. A really fun game with great spinner and long shots.
THE MACHINE: BRIDE OF PIN*BOT Williams (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeJust a very good game. Playfield had a small bit of wear where the ball drops down from the plastic on the right hand side. Got a professional artist to touch up the spaceship that is there so looks good now. Lots of great speech to keep you entertained too.
VECTOR Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverJust bought this one recently! Looks very nice. Backglass is perfect. The playfield has been worn in some spots which the previous owner has done some diy on. Not too bad a job but I can definitely see an unsteady hand in some areas! Really love the flip-o-meter that calculates your flip speed. Very different indeed.
XENON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThe artwork of the human form and the robots is wonderful. So colourful and the tube shot feels so rewarding. Backglass is perfect condition (you want it to be) and playfield is also great.
