      Rare Pinballs And Prototypes

      I love this stuff, you know the machines that never made it for one reason or another.

      Interesting to see what could have been released. They always seem to have something out of the ordinary on the play fields or are just over the top.

      If you have any please post them up here. Just the sort of thing inspiring Home Brew pinball makers can get there ideas from.

      How's this one to kick things off?.

      It's a Bally EM that is 4 foot by 8 foot in size. The rights to the idea were sold to Atari and evolved into Hercules.

      i have a fishtales which has a red insert on the auto cast instead of a green one from factory..i was told by a pin tech that it could be one of the sample games that were made first up or a prototype as its the only one he has ever seen like that...

      Aaron Spelling pinball. Aaron Spellings family commissioned this to be made for a birthday present for him. A modified Data East 'Lethal Weapon 3'. Only 2 where made.
      Those that attended the 2014 Aust Pinball Expo at Sydney would have seen this one. Thanks to Michael Shelhoub for displaying it.

      Here's a pic of the HS2 Sample game I owned for many years and always wondered why it was different until I read about it on IPDB :never had a write up on this sample until after I had sold it.
      It was an LAI AUS delivered machine. Purchased at auction on absentee bid. Pics aren't the best (35mm scan) but the proof is there if you look for it. One of the most un noticable changes is the SC ramp plastic, notice it's opposite and I don't just mean the globes but the text as well and no heading. Look for the rest of em. Original cabinet look how vivid the colour was.I wonder who owns it now?

      I had a prototype Earthshaker with the sinking institute not just a plastic building. It was OZ delivered and when I went to sell here on AA not a soul was interested at the time. Ended up selling it to a guy in the next street after he saw an ad in the local paper I placed. Wonder if he's still got it - Hmmmm?

      I love this idea. It seemed to answer the operators complaints about why they didn't like pinballs and preferred vidoes. No wheels and a to big a foot print.

      Seven flippers on 3 playfields with the strategy to climb to the upper play field.

      This general idea is something I have on my Bucket List. It has hefty patents on the ideas but that just means you need to think outside the square.


      Bally's The Pinball Circus. Only two made and regarded as the Holly Grail of pinballs.

      Video does this game justice...
