Best thing about TAF is that sometimes the flippers "snap" exactly at the moment there is the fingers snap during the epic title song....

And otherwise its a great pinball.

Ully, you look totally like the fifth member of Kraftwerk on that picture :)

are you sure that he still produces it? i think i've asked him about the sideart a while back and he told me he doesn't have anything in stock and isn't planning another run ...

It is more than enough, if we can ask him to send us the file. ;D

i don't think that archer would share the files with us, after all he's still doing business with some of the files!

Are those two complete by the way ?

both are complete but absolutely untested! the plug on the asteroids is cut and the power cable on the battlezone has some wires hanging out, so the seller didn't want to plug it in (and i told him not to try it). because of their untested status, i got both of them for a really good price. unfortunately, someone had tipped the seller off that berzerk is a pretty rare game in germany, so he wanted more for the berzerk than for the two vector games combined ;D. nevertheless, the price for the berzerk was still pretty good!

here are some pictures from the inside of the battlezone :arrow:







could definitely use a good clean first!

That Bezerk is awesome, such a hard cab to find, seems to be in great condition complete with bat-stick too!  PCBs are easily found :)

Fantastic roadtrip as usual. Very entertaining.  :)
You really made those guys sweat carrying the stuff up the spiral staircase.  :spaceace:
