PBJ can be a DB sometimes...

Yeah buy a few real ones for sure AND get a cool LCD machine too.

To track down a machine see the links below

Wow....I didnt realize there was that huge of a market for these things.  The only one I ever saw for sale was that Multi-Pin thing or whatever it was called with like 12 games on it.

People buying these things?  I have to say the Virtua pin kits look kind of intriguing but I wonder if it would really be that hard to find an old unused pinball cabinet to use a shell.  Plus you'd probably save $900.

Ummm, have you been living under a rock?  Did you know that GEICO can save you 15% or more on car insurance in 15 minutes?  

There is a huge market for these now.  We've been building VPcabs for a long while now.  Both HyperSpin-fe.com and VPForums.org have large communities of people that have built pincabs.  We have a lot of really nicely re-drawn tables and some very talented table builders.  We have people that add ROM driven solenoids, shaker motors, and LEDs/Flashers that change colors depending on the table being played.

This is an older pic of my cab that I've been building.  It's actually nearing completion.  Just lacking the custom lockdown bar that I'm getting from Virtuapin.net and glass.  This is a 3 screen cab; using 42" playfield, 32" backglass and 19" DMD.  The DMD is done in the style of the Pinball 2000 cabinets and will reflect off the glass to give it a little of a holographic look.  

The artwork is currently being worked on and is going to look awesome when completed.

Well dude I know people are building their OWN cabinets but I didnt realize there were entire manufactured units being offered up for sale......or even prebuilt kits being sold.  People building their own and companies building manufactured units for sale are two entirely different things.

Ahh, gotcha.  There is about 3 or 4 different companies that make VP kits.

So you decided against the VP and got a Stern Tron?  or you got a VP with Tron art?

lol, glad you like it.

Was a sad day when I said goodbye to it. I love the theme, and with the P2K style DMD reflection is a joy to play.
