This Game is Fantastic!

Shop Notes 14 May 2018 | Comments Off on This Game is Fantastic!

We just finished a full shop job on this Captain Fantastic pinball machine. It looks great now!

Bally came out with this machine in 1976, inspired by the movie “Tommy,” and based on the character Elton John plays. (IPDB)

The full moniker of the game — Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy — is the name of the singer’s ninth studio album.

This game is a classic, and always well-regarded for its pop culture status. We don’t usually even like games of this vintage, but we couldn’t hardly help ourselves.

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

We installed LEDs throughout for a beautiful and long-lasting glow.

New pop bumper caps and platters, new targets, new flipper bats, and a few extra touches made this game look great again!

Enjoy the game, Bob and Mary Ellen!
