  • Full size pinball machine in kit form (BIY) being made.

    That's right. Looks like there is a company, who call themselves Home Pinball, who are designing a full size pinball machine to be sold in kit form which you build yourself (BIY).

    Looks very interesting indeed. Click the link above or here it is again: www.homepin.com/

    Apparently, it is expected to be released December 2009.

    Cheers,

    Dan

      Ah nice. All this recent interest in homebrew pinball projects is quite exciting. Here's hoping they decide to sell packages of the cpu and driver boards etc.

        Do you know where these machines will be built or sold from Dan?
        Be great to know a little more about this, noticed the pricing for mini-kits was in AU so maybe this is an aussie company?

                      It'll be wholly dependent on price though.

                        The quality of the individual pieces look good so far.

                            Agreed Dave but if the cost is equivalent or more expensive to an existing pin, theres almost no point?

                              Bring it on I say...

                              Personally I don't want a full kit, but a legit retail option for the components to build my own (ie I decide the theme, the playfield layout, the art etc, I just want the bumpers, flippers, the power supply etc... bring it on I say.

                              Surely they would have to be more cost effective than official licensed spare parts for machines built for commercial flogging.
