Sing Along

Grail pin: Tales of the Arabian Nights

EDIT (Nov 6th,2012): Added World Cup Socccer 94.

EDIT (May 2nd, 2013): WHO Dunnit is now in the collection.
EDIT (May 17th, 2013): Added Sing Along. My uncle wants one of these. I'm going to try and track one down for him.

Good observation Malibu, I too noticed the door handle (ball launcher) missing in the kijiji pics. It may be a tough find as well. TFTC isn't the best for parts availability.

Thanks Malibu. I bought it from a local forum member (cstruth).

Mad Amusements have some parts,but be careful.....
He does not like to ship/deal with Canadians
If you have a US address it would be best to ship there

No US address for me.

I ordered a couple things so far. A cliffy protector for the scoop hole straight from Cliff, few small items from Pinball Wizard. Nothing major as the machine was in good working condition.

Still seems like the availability for playfield parts, decals, etc isn't an easy find for this game should someone need.

Never heard of pinball wizard before?

Your game originally came from Intercity Leisure I think

thepinballwizard.net

Nothing slips past you ... it is an Intercity machine. Can't be too many machines you don't have the scoop on.

ps. I think you literally live down the street from me Rick, I'm waiting for an invite to see the pinball palace. Wink

Yeah I picked it up... what an awesome game. So happy I decided to pull the trigger on this one. I have a line on a Whitewater as well... just to decide how broke I want to be right at this moment. lol

not yet... the more we pressed the button the more that flipper would fire. Quick clean and we'll be back in business. The coil on that flipper buzzes a bit when I hold the button and from what I've read it's usually the coil stop.

Overall it's in pretty nice shape. The guy kept it clean. LED lights in most places. Cab has all original paint and is just a little faded on one side and has very few dings. Whoever he bought it from had put incorrect screws on pretty much all the ramps so I'll need to replace all of them. Couple cracked plastics. Electronics didn't look hacked at all. Playfield isn't mint but it's still pretty nice (minus that one vertical crack). Everything works and it plays well. Still has a credit dot but I think I figured that out. There is an extra rubber at the bottom of boulder guarden that prevents the ball from hitting a switch down there so I have to figure out how exactly it's supposed to look stock. It plays great and most importantly my wife really likes the game!
