New addition!!!
« on: August 03, 2014, 04:30:51 PM »
Couldn't turn this one down.. thanks to another forum member who pointed me in the direction of this..

WMS EARTHSHAKER!!!!!

Game was bought as a complete non worker.. no keys etc.
Had to transport with the head up and drill the lock out this morning to get it off after sitting on the back of the ute all night... drilled the head out and then the door  to find the keys to the head inside... how did I know that would happen???

Game lights up but that's all... no display etc. But a new fuse for the +100V section and a fix on the battery holder got this game going... new microswitch in ball trough saw this game going 100%.
Cool game!! My daughter runs away when the shaker comes on!!

Kicking and screaming Daniel... kicking and screaming I accept the new fan dangle ways....
Game isn't a keeper.. will have it for a while and move it on for some $$'s in the pocket or maybe a swap for something like BOP

Good pickup there Gav, the bonus being a simple fix to boot.
Still loving my Metallica Premium

A nice system 11 game. Just done a course on troubleshooting these with Norbert. Very easy to work with.  Good buy.
If you don't remember the 70s then you were on drugs.
If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.
If you don't remember anything,  then read about it here,

Dang. Amongst the list of pins I wouldn't mind adding to the collection, that's definitely one of them. Glad to hear you had a good score with it! I've seen a few with some nasty backglass peeling, seems you have a nice example.

Jealous!

A mate of mine owns later machines, and has one of these. I do enjoy playing it, very nice game.
