Gottlieb came out with Super Mario Brothers in 1992, and produced around 4,200 games. (IPDB)

The game, of course, is based on the video game that changed so many childhoods forever. Nintendo came out with Mario Brothers in 1983, and Super Mario Brothers two years later.

This game incorporates much of the video game, with seven worlds our good hero travels through, fighting Bowser and rescuing the princess, with Yoshii frequently beside him.

We recently bought this game back from a relocating customer who hardly played it at all. It’s in amazing shape, and everything works 100%!

This game comes with Cointaker LEDs throughout. We also added a few special touches as well, including Super Bands, and color-coded post sleeves.

Everything is in amazing condition on this game, from the playfield to the cabinet to the head and in between.

Paragon is Something Else

Shop Notes

We had a couple of really nice late ’70s machines come through the shop recently. After seeing so many games that have seen better days, it’s nice to share some shots of a quality machine. Check out this sweet Paragon!

Bally came out with Paragon in 1979 and produced around 9,120 of the games. (IPDB)

The game was Bally’s first widebody game, and also utilized four flippers.

This game is usually pretty well-loved, but this machine has seen some care during its life. Check out how nice this cabinet is!

We gave the machine a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be tumbled, buffed, washed, polished, or otherwise cleaned.

We installed LEDs throughout as well as some special touches.

Check out that beautiful glow.

Enjoy the game, Gilbert! It’s a beauty!

This Game Looks Like a Million Bucks, or Six

Shop Notes

We had a couple of really nice late ’70s machines come through the shop recently. After seeing so many games that have seen better days, it’s nice to share some shots of a quality machine. Check out this sweet Six Million Dollar Man!

Bally came out with Six Million Dollar Man in 1978, and produced around 10,320 of the games. (IPDB)

The game of course was based on the popular Lee Majors’ TV show, which finished up its four-year run the year this game came out.

We had the technology to rebuild this machine, better than before, with new rings and LEDs lights that burned cooler and looked better than traditional incandescent bulbs.

Check out those beautiful lights! We fixed a few minor problems and added a few bonus touches as we gave this machine a full shop job. But this game was in remarkable shape and didn’t need much love.

Enjoy your game, Donald, it’s a beauty!

Gilligan Never Looked so Good!

Game Restoration,Shop Notes

We just finished a full restoration on this Gilligan’s Island pinball machine. This game got a new playfield, new cabinet stencils, tons of custom touches, full LEDs, powdercoating, and more. Check out how beautiful it looks!

Bally came out with Gilligan’s Island in 1991, and produced around 4,100 of the games. (IPDB)

This game had been on our restoration list for a while, and we were excited when we could finally clear out space to get her done.

First thing we did was sand down the cabinet to remove all traces of the previous art. Then we applied the new stencils.

Then came the playfield swap. We’d already pulled the old one out of the game and we swapped everything over to the new one while we finished the cabinet.

We also cleaned everything or replaced it with new as it went on the new playfield. Here’s a closer look at how beautiful it came out!

We installed Cointaker LEDs throughout.

Our customer wanted to make the wireform rails look like bamboo, so we had them powdercoated light brown, then hand-painted the bamboo accents.

Our customer also found these great palm trees that he thought would add to the look of the machine. So we cut them to size and added them to the game as well.

Did you notice those sweet art blades too? Also Super Bands, color-coded post sleeves, Cliffys, and more.

Enjoy the game, Bill! We had fun making it look so cool!

We also gave it a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be tumbled, buffed, washed, polished, or otherwise cleaned. We installed Cointaker LEDs throughout as well.
