Well it looks like there has been a bit of damp in there, could be nice??
Medusa is such a great game - on this one though the playfield has wear, backglass has lifting, apron rusty. Rusty ball too :eek:

Cab not faded though!

He runs arcades south coast and isle of wight. definitely operator rather than enthusiast. bought spares and all manner of games from them over the years but no pins

Yes and at £7.30 (the current bid) it’s a bargain.
What worries me is that there are zero pics of the circuit boards (if indeed there are any) i have messaged and asked the question but no reply Shooter position looks very odd as well?

It matches with the playfield, lower than usual in the cabinet, though. And there's artwork extending into the shallow upper recess, so I doubt it's an operator alteration. Maybe it's a factory error, or a cabinet diverted at the carpentry stage from a different, 'shallow' game.

Looks like Peter Hardman bought the £1750 Twister from Gumtree last week.

He’s now selling it for £3750!!!

I hope he’s at least changed the caps for the extra £2000 he’s added.

I’m assuming he bought the faulty £1450 X-Files too?

Sad news about a pinball museum in Banning, which had been struggling and now looks like it's closing and auctioning off its 1100+ pinball machines.


Not been to the place, but was on my list for a states visit. I think it's the biggest collection of pinballs in one place.

I commented on his price, now he’s blocked me

Funnily enough (though i didn`t think it funny at the time) Peter Hardman offered me £3500 for my mint Black Knight SOR earlier this year ! Very generous or what .
I hope you were offering the awesome topper and "in the field" 24 Hour service guarantee as well.

Spotted this pic on a Facebook group. Apparently in a charity shop Maltby Rotherham.

DE £6500
Superpin £6500
Bally £4500

Might be of interest to some

A quick update...

A deal was done on these a couple of weeks ago and they were finally delivered today. I used to work in a Maltby Industrial Unit many years ago and my mother is still a 20 minute drive away so she was immediately dispatched to investigate whilst everyone else was wondering if they were in Newcastle. We found that the bally was not booting, the ST:TNG was continually firing balls (a common issue with this game), so only the DE was working properly. She left her number for them to contact her for when they had enough of them and needed them gone (expected as only one was correctly working). A few weeks later they got in touch and the rest is history...

Big thanks to @itsmecurrie for his assistance in locating them as there's a few charity shops in Maltby..!
