More pictures of the beast  Cool



The paint restoration has been very well done. The gray color is a little bit lighter than the other SI photos shown on Internet, but let's presume it the gray from day one, not faded by time  Grin









The rubber rings color is not the right one. I'll replace them by white one...



Hey, I didn't notice that artwork previously?  Shocked   arrow



... adults only!  Grin

Cannot resist to publish new pictures in 'no light' mode  Cool



I really love the 'gray color domination' on this pinball, like most of the HP Giger artwork  Tongue





Alien! ...the true invader coming from space !  Cool



Scary isn't it?



And the red color combined to gray play field gives stunning effects  Tongue





Can't wait to see that one inside the new game room  Cool

very scary!! but imo the sound is a bit too minimal, they wanted it to have the same sound of the videogame which at the time was very emblematic. it would have been cool if it featured a squawk & talk board...the texas instruments voice adds an eerie feeling to the games of that era. anyway SI is a real beauty and icon of the time...me too I have it impressed in my memory from when I was a kid (when I couldn't even stretch my arms to reach the flipper buttons...).

that's one hell of a machine

reminds me of heavy metal dudes wearing denim-jackets with the Iron Maiden prints on the back. In my memory, those type of guys used to play these pinballs.  Twisted Twisted shock
