01.20 — Elvira’s House of Horrors

We take a look at our favourite pinball vamp in her new Stern pinball table.

The Mansion is the key feature. Fully interactive. Akin to Sorcerer’s Lair (the spinny bit)
Look it’s the VUK from Cirqus Voltaire. The Deadheads appear to be on a Roto target.

10.50 — Chris has got a new gig!

He’s working for Disney as a Photographer. Pretty sweet!

12.20 — Zen Studios Williams Pinball Release is Coming

We carefully describe what we can about the next Zen Studios Williams Pinball after double-checking with Mel Kirk.

Flipper physics will not be rolled back into the previous releases but you’ll get the new physics on the new pack.

More news to follow just as soon as we’re cleared to tell you.

15:00 — Star Wars Pinball on Switch

Is the physical release of SW Pinball on Switch boosting the profile of this release for Zen Studios.

18:30 — Force 2 Restoration Updates

I’ve been doing backbox restoration on Force 2 and it’s come up pretty well.

The backbox has come up well. I even had a go at doing my own stencils.
The lightboard has come up really nicely. You use matte white on the lightboard.
That hole is where someone tried to gain access to the coin box.

25:30 — Finding Gottlieb Legs in Australia

I’m having a hard time finding the right length legs for Gottlieb cabinets here in Australia.

If you have any leads about how to get them, let me know.
