New Pin Day
« on: December 14, 2014, 11:15:54 AM »
I love new pin day!!

A while back I asked Strangeways to source an NBA Fastbreak with the idea of doing an MM conversion. In between I sourced a good MM, so instead I spent this morning cleaning this one up.

Way too nice an example to wreck in any event.

Just played a few games - plays very well, fun layout with some good shots. Lots of ramps, and a fun "pass the ball" ability to get around the defender - really a quite enjoyable game.

Super clean inside - even has a "goody bag" still with some spare slings!

Wondering about the Defender plastic - the only ones I have seen for sale seem to be black - but mine is clear - anyone got any info?

Looks pretty cool, never seen one and might have to look at papa videos for some idea.
If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

Thanks for that, I might see what you have that is better then what is on this one.

Sorry to disappoint - I know how much you were looking forward to a MM conversion  %$%

It is a very nice example - did it have the serial interface PCB to link up to another NBA ?

I'll keep my eye open for a stinker NBA for you mate  *%*
