Hope everyone reading this had a good Christmas or whatever you do (or don’t do) this time of year. Santa was good to us! My wife got a Simpsons Pinball Party machine. She loves pinball and the Simpsons, so I figured this would be perfect. I had a hard time keeping it a secret, but managed to do it.
It took about 2 hours to wrap, and lots of hot glue for the ribbons to stick. Misty our half cat / half demon spawn is protecting it in this pic. Please note that she is NOT hot glued to the top of the box! (she’s stapled)
It took a long time to get it out of the box! She flipped out when she opened it.
Then the legs were put on…that was a little tricky.
Our arcade now looks like this:
As you can see, we are quickly running out of room. We have plans to rearrange some furniture and move these to the other side of the room which is bigger. I’ll post some pics when we do that.
For my Christmas stash – I got training DVDs and books from Randy Fromm, a compressor (so I can spray paint Pac-Man), and a bunch of other cool stuff.
Some more Pac-Man restoration updates should be coming soon. I have parts to order, and have some pics to post of the coin door restoration which is almost done. I’m waiting on some paint to dry so I can do one more coat.
