My KISS Pinball Machine!

This is my KISS Pinball Machine. Finally, 2 years ago, I got my hands on a European version (with the SS) It’s now almost 30 years old and it’s often called The Holy Grail by fans.

It still works and the playfield is a used original one (not a reproduced one) It can work on coins and still has his original coinbank. I also have the original instruction book that came with this Pinball and the promotion kit/flyer.

This is how the playfield looks when the lights are on.

There aren’t many KISS Pinball Machines excist here in Europe, they’re becomming very rare now…It’s a real eye-catcher in my collection!

11 September 2006 at 20:15 Ich habe diese pinball auch und ist noch im gute zustand!

Reply Hans says:
14 September 2006 at 17:52 Ik heb zelf de kast met het orig.
KISS logo, net zo cool als die van jouw. De mijne staat nou voor revisie en zou het over een paar weken weer helemaal goed moeten
doen. Kan ik eindelijk na 2 jaar
weer een potje flipperen want ik
gebruikte hem daarvoor ook regelmatig. Echt gaaf !!

14 September 2006 at 22:55 Ik wou dat ik er plek voor had, dan had ik er zeker eentje gehad!

Reply Rockhead says:
16 September 2006 at 17:09 @ Hans, ja die flipperkast van mij heeft ook een servicebeurt nodig…

Reply Wim says:
17 September 2006 at 10:15 Ik heb er 1 te koop met originele KISS logo.

Reply Rockhead says:
17 September 2006 at 13:06 @ Wim: Volgens mij heb je die al een tijdje te koop, ik dacht dat deze KISS Flipperkasten toch erg in trek waren bij de fans, wat vraag je er voor?

Reply RisingForce says:
1 October 2006 at 14:17 Damn. I love my pinball machine………but that SS version is a hell of a find.

Reply Cobo Hall says:
1 October 2006 at 21:19 Agreed! A friend of a friend bought a European one in 1999 and invited me over to take a look. He had an impressive collection already, but seeing the U.S. and European pinball machines (both in great condition) side by side was quite a sight.

23 April 2007 at 19:43 This machine is more rare than the amrican one due to the SS with curves and not angles like the original logos. A friend here (KISS fan) has it and is great!

17 February 2008 at 19:52 @ Marco; De Flipperkast die ik heb is de Europese uitvoering met het SS-logo. Om daar nu het originele logo in te zetten terwijl de rest met het SS-logo is, lijkt mij niet verstandig…
