Lol - well it would certainly win the competition of the worst way to showcase your product!
..Only the Chinese would consider using ping pong balls in a pinball machine.
Would probably sell well domestically though as the Pachinko influence is ever present

A bit more complete than John Popadiuk's KISS machine, but not by much.

I have a feel that the flippers are mechanically linked to the buttons.  There is no power in them.  Are the flippers weak because they are shooting pingpong balls, or are they using pingpong balls because the flippers are weak?

You're probably right there..Flippers look the same as those mini machines kids play to win a toy in a plastic egg

Multi-ball feature!

Cannot import these as the "increase the winning opportunity" would be classified as gambling.

Interesting name "TZ QF089"....sounds like a flying kangaroo frying kangaloo.

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,
