  • Highway Entertainment to Distribute Homepin's Thunderbird Pinball Machine

    We are extremely happy to announce our relationship with Homepin, and the distribution of Thunderbirds Pinball machine in the Australian marketplace.

    Highway Entertainment was the last distributor in Australia to distribute Williams/Bally pinball machines before they closed and have been in the pinball distribution wilderness for the last 19 years. We have started to re-establish our distribution network in Australia and will be making a number of new distribution agreements and product announcements over these next months.

    Thunderbirds Pinball machine is based on the hugely popular UK science-fiction television series and lovingly recreated by Homepin as a modern pinball machine. Unlike other machines available, the Thunderbirds Pinball machine will not have optional extras and will include items such as coin mechanisms and shaker motor as standard. Whilst other factories are offering limited warranty, Highway will go further and add additional warranty to include 2 years unlimited warranty (whether you use in commercial or home environment) on all major components.

    For customers who order before 14th February, we will also include free delivery, and also free home setup (conditions apply). Price is $6,999aud including gst. Please review full details below;

    Absolutely fantastic news.

    Finally a realistic warranty for home use buyers.

    Well done guys. At least someone is listening.

        Sorry we are not sure yet as it will depend on logistics/timing. I think Mike with chat directly with all previous customers.

            The machine sounds fantastic or is that promo music as I don't remember it sounding that specific during gameplay?

              Sorry for the delay - its promo music together with actual game. The final music will be available in the next few weeks.
              We will help to upload new videos and game play as soon as available.

                        Homepin "Direct" Pre-Order Customers
                        ----------------------------------------------

                        Due to a few people trying to destabilise the shipping or trying to cause Homepin to lose their Thunderbirds license (and therefore the loss of your machine) we are further delayed on arrangements, and therefore ask you to please stop. You are causing trouble for everyone. As we have stated, we are here to help and doing so at OUR COST. We are not being paid by Homepin and we are also not asking you for money to cover our services. Our goal is to solve this current situation as quickly as possible, as well as establish clear distribution and parts inventory in Australia for easy service and management. It means everything is local.

                        Our team has now contacted everyone again, and we should see clear direction on Monday next week for all. You are also welcomed to call our office anytime to discuss current production/arrangements.

                        Thanks for your patience and support.

                          Just wondering if the EL panels are still on our Aussie machines?

                          Read somewhere that they are no more.

                            The EL panels have been removed from the machines as there were problems during the testing phase, unfortunately they will not be included for any machine orders/productions.
