    Default vintage popeye machine?

    saw this at an auction. i'm guessing that someone died that was a big popeye collector from the looks of the other stuff.

    don't know if any of you are popeye fans?

    Wow! That is cool. I guess you can find just about any theme you want in a vintage Pachinko if you are patient. Let me know if you ever come across a "Flanders" themed machine!

    Looks like it could really use some restoration, judging by the rust on the chrome.

    Thanks for sharing!

    There is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

    hmmm. maybe I could make you a Flanders for one of your machines?

    we could print it out, laminate onto plastic or wood, then stick this on one of the less interesting center pieces... or hey... how about a simpson's machine??? we could have homer's face on all the spinners, put marge, bart and his sister on the tulip pockets...

    a whole new market for boring faced vintages - refaced vintages with any theme you want! it's a new market for old pachi's

    looks like another way to restore a machine with a water damaged cell.could use just about any theme the customer wishes.

    I was planning to wait till I made it but the next one I find that needs total re-done, I want to do a Coke machine. I can print the back picture at work and find some old bottle caps for the spinners. Red spray paint for plastic, for the trays.
