    That's a cool gallery and story. I used to love pinball when I was a kid. I learned to play standing on a chair because I wasn't tall enough to reach otherwise. I just found a video version on my computer I didn't know I had no my hubby can't get me off of it. I'd love to have a real one for our house one day.You've got a great collection. thumb.gif

    Cool stuff. One of my co-workers is a Medival Madness fan. He is restoring
    one now.

    A nice MM is worth upwards of $6K.

    Wow. I know he's spent a bit on things like the play field and ramps. He's got
    some replacement decals that are $300 for a set.

    I never realized the extent of a restoration. Apparently, MM's are hard to find
    and those you do find need a bit of work.

    I'm sure he did spend a bit. Parts for Williams and Bally games are getting harder and harder to find since they are no longer making pinball machines. Stern in Chicago is the one and only place left on the planet still making these great machines. (www.sternpinball.com). I have Stern's The Simpson's Pinball Party. Great machine.

    Medieval Madness was one of the last machines Williams made, it was made in 1998, Williams' pinball division closed in 1999. MM was a great one. While most 90's era games fetch between $1000 and $3000, that one is selling for at least $4500, and that's for a beat up one. Plus, they only made 4016 MM's.
