1977 Six Million Dollar Man Pinball Machine by Bally

About

A rebuild to rival that of The Six Million Dollar Man himself! If you need to be introduced to the phenomenon that was the ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ then you’re probably too young to fully appreciate this pinball table based on the blockbuster 1970’s TV series featuring Lee Majors as the astronaut Steve Austin. Following a spectacular crash, Austin was rebuilt at vast expense incorporating all manner of mechanical and robotic enhancements, garnering many young fans in the process and presumably facing a lifetime of hassle at airport security scanners. The title sequence ended with the immortal pay off line: ‘We can rebuild him’, and it’s a philosophy we took on board when commencing the refurbishment of this classic machine. We haven’t spent quite that much money on this restoration as they did on Steve Austin but rest assured that, as usual, our workshop has gone the extra mile. Over the years we are fortunate enough to have gathered together a select few individuals whose enthusiasm for jukeboxes, pinball machines, and vintage arcade games ensures that they are never less than 100% committed to the task in hand. They quite simply love breathing new life into old circuitry and want to see as many of these classic pieces preserved for future generations as possible. Not for them the perfunctory checklists and proverbial ‘tyre kicking’ which pass for an inspection at other dealers but instead an unflinching determination to get to grips with the detail. This usually begins with a thorough strip down of the machine and a forensic examination of the internal workings. They’ll be aware of the particular quirks and foibles of any given piece and instead of just replacing failed parts they’ll always go the extra mile, swapping out components which are likely to fail in the near future. Rare though many of these machines are, rarer still are the examples which have been properly restored or can truthfully be said to be in full working order. It goes without saying that when unrestored machines come up for sale online or at auction, they’ll often be priced rather lower than the machines sold by The Games Room Company, and the point we wish to get across above all others is that there’s a reason for this. In this business, The Games Room Company’s reputation is second to none, and as it’s been hard won over the years it’s something we never take for granted. Every machine that goes off to a customer, be they corporate or private, is a potential advertisement for the business and if we didn’t do our job properly then we wouldn’t have the high number of loyal, returning customers that we do. Released in 1978 with a production run of 10,320 units, this is one of the great early electronic (as opposed to mechanical) games. It’s a six-player pinball, which is quite unusual even now, so you can invite your friends round to join in the bionic fun. The Six Million Dollar Man is an unashamedly patriotic table, with Dave Christensen’s red white and blue artwork clearly designed to evoke the colours of the Stars and Stripes. It’s a fast machine for its time, and you can score a free game reasonably easily by tagging the lit spinners. Another novelty is the pop-up post, which springs up between the flippers now and again to help you extend the play. All in all, it’s a great looking and very entertaining game, and one which those of us of a certain age will love for the nostalgia factor alone. At The Games Room Company we're justly proud of our One Year Parts and Labour Warranty, which extends to on-site visits so if your machine does require some attention, you won’t necessarily have to endure the pain of separation. The Games Room Company is one of the oldest pinball dealers in the country. Our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, played his first pinball game in 1960, and described it without irony as being “flipping excellent”. We’ve been selling pinball machines since 1962, so know a thing or two about our products!
