1978 Gottlieb's "Strange World" Very rare single player wedgehead machine with a science fiction theme. Beautiful all round condition with a new (perfect) never used original art glass installed, excellent playfield and very nice original cabinet with few scuffs and little fade. The handful of these machines Pinrescue has ever seen seem to always have lots of fade in the pinks on the cabinet. Not this fine example the colors are good with a few professional touch ups. This is the only Strange World pinrescue has had the pleasure of restoring (completed April 2011) and every chance once this one is sold the next one will not be as nice. Game play similar to Gottlieb's 1971 "4 Square" only on Strange World once you have completed any series of one thru four it lights the Special and once you make all the ones twos threes and fours every target and rollover is worth 5,000 big points! It also has the desirable over the top 100,000 scoring. The mint original art glass features lots of strange creatures, funny looking mushrooms, a bizarre Viking ship and of course great looking space age guys and girls. Love it or hate it vivid Peter Max style artwork.

Fine features found on Strange World:

  • 3 rebuilt pop bumpers (snappy fast and powerful)
  • 2 brand new Flippers
  • 7 rollovers
  • 7 targets
  • 1 kick out hole lights for Specials
  • 1 star roll over
  • 100,000 scoring
  • end of game match

Movies you might remember from 1978 when this machine was new. Grease, Superman and Animal House were 1,2,3 at the box office. Don't wait another 3 decades to get a vintage pinball machine they may all be gone.
