Any Thunderbirds (TAG) Updates ?
« on: April 21, 2017, 08:26:55 PM »
Was thinking about TAG the other day after seeing the post on the other pinball manufactured in China.


Has anyone heard any updates lately I don't recall hearing anything since sometime last year.

Have a listen to this week's "Kenada's Pinball Podcast" episode 112.  He rumours that about 6 TAG games are about to be trialled on location.  I hope that is a spread of machines across Australia.

here is his artwork for the cabinet

and here is his cabinet (twin coin door), and their spraying painting booth ..... I scratch my head on the tiny booth, one cabinet at a time and a tight squeeze at that.

apparently bringing one to Pinfest in September and 5 going into Aus bars in China and production hopefully starting at the end of the year.

license just renewed so they can sell them so expired once...
