VPcabs tearing it up at Pinfest 2013

Recommended Posts

Decided yesterday to throw 5 cabs in the trailer and make the 10 hour all night drive to Allentown for the pinball show. This show is very well ran and the promoter was very kind in renting us a last minute vendor booth. So many great people here excited about Virtual Pinball.

Here's some pics.

What's The Thought On TRUE Pins Vs. VPs... Are There Hardcore Pin People Out There That Don't Believe In A "Virtual" Cab And Think it's Blasphemy, Or Is It An Accepted Avenue Of "Hey, I Get To Play My Fav Pin All Over Again" Jus A Thought... I Think VP Is Awesome, And I'd Like To Venture That Way One Day With A Build...

^ I've always been very interested in the reaction of real pin enthusiasts. I know my local pin seller and fixer guy hates us with a passion. ;)

Cabs look freaking great man! The Zombie one looks awesome with those legs on it.

My virtual cab has always been received very well at the shows that I've taken it to. The first show I took it to I didn't have feedback or lights installed, and got several comments about it not feeling right. This past show back in March, I had shaker, contactors, gear and lighting and people loved it. It received a lot of good compliments.

While you are there... Go kick that other VP guy in the nuts for me.

There are 3 VP companies at the show this year and all are being received very well. I'm just 2 booths down from Arcades R Fun and I have to tell you that Jack is a very, very nice guy. He came over and complimented my products and we talked for a solid hour about the industry and developed an instant friendship. There is so much potential business out there that there is really no need to be at each others throats. I wish Paul at Virtuapin all the best at his business. He builds a great product and helped pave the way for this awesome hobby.

Nice. I'm glad to see the cabs are so popular. Hopefully it brings in some new people to the community.

Lookin killer man. The Zombie looks terrific! It was a pleasure making that design come to life. To think it was just over a month ago we talked up the concept and here it is at a show in all it's glory. Way to go Brad!!

Thanks for the work and I can't wait to see more of these designs at the next show as a set of VPcabs!

All the best!!!

Josh

It all sort of depends on the guy playing and how long he's been doing it. I've been collecting pins for 10 years. I currently have 22 pins and I think I'm one of the few that has accepted virtual pinball. Certainly, I accept it for what it is. it's not the same as real pinball, but that's not to say that it's not fun. I'm currently building my first machine and I'm excited as hell to get it up and running, but I can't say I'm all that excited to show it off to my pinball buddies (some of whom have been collecting for over two decades and make my collection seem paltry) because I know most of them are going to turn their noses up at it. It's never going to replace my collection of real machines, but I do think it's a fantastic way to augment the collection. The way I see it, I can't own them all, no matter how much I want to. I don't have the money, and even if I did, I don't have the space. And even if I did have the money and space, I'd still have to hire an army of people to maintain them for me. Not so once I get my VP cab done.

Loving those zombie pinball legs. That could have come out looking bad, but it really works. Red armor + white t-molding seals the deal.
