September 2014 – Incoming Pinball Machines

In preparation for the upcoming holidays, Midwest Pinball has picked up a number of “new” used pinball machines for restoration and sale. Once we have restored a game, we will add it to the website. Below is a list of some of the machines that we are in the process of restoring:

Gottlieb Barb Wire – Based on the 1996 movie and the last pinball machine made by Premier Technology, Barb Wire has a number of ramps, wire forms, and toys. A third flipper on the upper left allows shots at a bank of targets and a steep ramp.

Williams Judge Dredd – One of Williams SuperPins (a wide body), this machine is based on the British comic book character of the same name. Judge Dredd has a great mix of shots and a complex playfield layout. Judge Dredd features a great rotating ball lock, Deadworld, and a magnetic robotic arm.

Sega Starship Troopers – Also based on a movie, Starship Troopers’ three flippers and four multi-ball modes make this an exciting game of killing giant alien bugs. The game features a number of bug-related toys including a pop-up Brain Bug.

Williams Star Trek: The Next Generation – Another of Williams seven SuperPins from the mid-1990s, ST:TNG features great toys, video modes, and four different multi-ball modes. Two shuttle craft and a Borg ship all fire pinballs across the playfield.
