  1. Did you know Yaboola and The Waterloo Bay Hotel have around $1,000.00 prizes & money on offer if we sell all 50 tickets to The Battle of Waterloo next Saturday.....

    That's right $1,000.00 for just $50 entry and 2 major comps all IFPA Approved. Check Saturday the 11th December on the Aussie Arcade site for more details...

    If you can't make both events then send me a message and we may be able to sort 1 event ticket on the day for $30 each event.  So support your newest local pinball place and come enjoy the Battle. and your chance to win big.

    @DAG you have my permission, though I'm not the author of the video. @Htbast are you there?

    @Railways. I had my own updated version printed out for Pinfest 2016 and was displayed at show (I don't think you attended that year?). Continuous print that is 13m long and cost me $2500 at the time. Still incomplete and still 1948 to 2005. Its difficult to find room even at Club Macquarie when the walls end up being lined with pinballs. Will investigate on perhaps finding a wall in another room....


    Awesome news....I did try @Htbast

    thanks again. This is such a great story.

    @Sartana66, Surely this would be a good addition to Pinfest. I'm sure the NPA would help replicate it for the event if the original from Coogee Diggers can't be found.

    Plenty of long walls to hang it on at Club Macquarie for Pinfest next year.

    Yes Yes Yes, but can anyone answer my original question?

    Can I play this on the big screen at Multi-ball Mania during comps?

    If it's a yes then I'll get it done. Just need an answer first? Please? Anyone?

    So let me make it simple for you…..the photos actually in this thread are of the actual finished game.

    The photos in the google link are of its restoration.

    Sorry but I never opened a link and now I have tried it didn't open.

    No biggie really, all the pics I saw are resto pics otherwise the displays wouldn't have changed colours? Maybe check what is posted above. Not being smart, just honest. But that usually gets me in the shit as well.

    White displays because it looks amazing.

    Not sure what you mean by different finishes? Some Photos are during restoration and others in my games room. Same game though.

    What I mean by different finishes is If I was a buyer what am I buying not what was it?

    I bought a Yellow car but but it used to be white??? Thats about it. Display the item for sale. Not photos of what I won't get? It is a sale after all. Not a resto report. 

  6. to be honest why white displays and photos of different finishes?

    Can you post what is actually for sale? Not being smart but the photo's vary on the way thru???

    And to be more honest I have a beautiful CENTAUR and ponder it's current worth based on a comment when Bill delivered a machine 13 months back??? How the time flies,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Based on what I see the asking price is very much a great buy.........

    You must have some beauties if this is on the chopping block. The old Bastard / Bitch has the best heart beat after all....

    G'day fella's,   I'm a pinballer who is seeing the light & moving over to arcades. Ive purchased quite a few Aus machines already, but i've also got access to a lot of US imports from the 80's which have yet to be turned on.


    The advice i have been given is it will be wiser to run them off a "step down" as opposed to converting to AUS as its not as simple as just converting the power supply. Older machines tend to require modifications on the boards etc too.


    Does anyone know of a sound idiots guide checklist that might already exist online of things I should check out before powering these on for the first time? Many of them have very valuable "original" boards in them, so i dont want to risk any damage.  I know to check that the correct fuses are in place (although not entirely sure where to find a specs online for each game) & to also clean the cab & boards to ensure no metal shards that may have occurred from drilling out locks.  Also double checking all connectors are plugged in, no pins missed.

    Any direction with it would be awesome and really appreciated



    If anyone knows where to start ask @namastepat will be the first point of call for you..........

    That's it with this topic for me....Turning the light off now Marcus.....I'm offended........lol

    Hi Guys,


    At the end of last year, Pinball author & historian Marco Rossignoli made available a massive pinball timeline artwork to Pinball HQ in Coogee, and Norbert rallied the troops to get it up on the wall. It was officially unveiled at the end of year. It is a massive artwork detailing pinball history from 1948 to 2005.


    I have created a video to showcase the work, and hopefully encourage some pinheads to visit Pinball HQ and take a look. Make sure you allow an hour or two as it really is massive, but well worth the time. Also around a dozen quality pinball's to play while you are there.


    Hope you like it:- https://vimeo.com/154551705



    Information wanted regarding this video..........

    Hey there @Htbast 

    i'm asking if there is a possibility that we can run this on a loop on the BIG Screen TV at Multiball Mania, Wynnum when Yaboola Club have comp nights?

    It's an excellent insight for so many. And with the passing of Toads below I'm not sure where to start. I know Marco has done the work but the video is another story again. Not great with this but want to honor the brilliance of this work and those that own it........

    It needs to be shared. I,m happy to get it on the screen via the owner but I'm omly the middleman wanting to expose pinball for all it's glory.........

    Can anyone help?

  9. Hey @KJS just as a side note.

    If it helps David Clarke has joined last night and he lives about 2 minutes from you. You have met as he talks about your MAD MAX....

    I know comps aren't your mainstream but this may be a good ride share opportunity. If you don't have or want his details let me know....

    There maybe a Fish Tales you could feed to the sharks if you talk to the right guy.....Or more orders for bits n bobs.

    Hope to see you there soon.

    What about a black dildo in a hand with a creepy monkey watching, on a translite?

    Hey, I'm not sure which Monkey you are on about?

    The one with his fingers in his ears or the one with the tounge in mouth?

    I am pretty vocal on my opinion tgat toppers are an overrated wank, but they actually found a pretty awesome way to make it actually fun & interesting  & not just a big plastic looking dildo on the headbox. 

    OK, so I understand Toppers, awesome, fun, interesting and even dildo.....

    But Marcus can you please explain your version of an Overrated Wank......lol....I can't wait for this answer....
