Grand Lizard Pinball, produced by Williams in 1986.
This is the fist pinball that Python Anghelo (famous designer/artist) worked on, after being transferred from the video game division.(remember Joust)
The lizard depicted is a end boss from a video game, do you know which one?
As a team, Python Anghelo and Barry Oursler built some all time classic pinballs such as, Comet, Jokerz, Bad Cats, & Cyclone, to name a few.
Just like Black Knight, or Jungle Lord, this pin has the cool MagaSave feature on the left and right outlanes; notice the extra button beside the cabinet flipper button.
The photo gallery shows the CPU missing, but the original is here, and will be installed.
The asking price is based on the pin being refurbished to “Collectors Quality” condition.
The photos in the gallery, at present, show the pin in it’s current condition.
Major work that will be done on this unit as follows:
Cabinet will be stripped, and sanded down to wood. All body repairs will be completed, then unit will be primed, then block sanded with 1000 grit.
The base coat will then be applied. Once dry, each secondary color will be applied, one side at a time. Finally the cabinet will receive 4 coats of acrylic enamel clear; which provides the high shine wet look. It also protects the unit from light to mild scratches.
All the metal will be sandblasted, and powder coated; I’m thinking micro metallic silver, but if your ordering the pin, choose your own color.
The playfield will be stripped bare, topside and underside. Then it will have the old yellowed and scratched Mylar remove. Finally it will receive 4 layers of 2-part automotive clear coat. Protected forever after.
The backglass will have the player display areas taped off, then sealed with 4 passes of acrylic enamel clear coat, which will prevent any future degrading.
All the electronics will be updated, and many old connectors, and capacitors changed, so the unit is reliable.
All playfield metal parts, such as posts, will be polished in a tumbler with a special medium, for over 1 week; end result, they will look new.
All mechanical components will be disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt to original specifications.
A new playfield plastic set, along with select decals will be installed.
New LED alphanumeric player score displays will be installed, making the high voltage generation section obsolete, greatly improving reliability.
All #47 & #555 bulbs will be changed to color matching 2-SMD frosted, high intensity Comet brand. All back box bulbs will usually be cool AKA natural white. Likewise, most all playfield General Illumination (GI) will also be Cool White. Unlike Warm White, which has a red hue, cool white is pure white, and will illuminate the playfield much better.
Basically, everything you read about under “The Restoration Process”, which is broken into 3 parts (Board Sets-Playfield-Cabinet) will be done to this pin.
