This is a 1991 Data East Checkpoint Pinball Machine in excellent condition. It was the first pinball machine made with a dot matrix display, as well as other features. The theme is auto/Porsche. It also has music selection prior to each game, first of its kind. I did all the restoration myself over a few years. Most of the playfield parts are original, cleaned and polished. Porsche matchbox toy is not original. Some custom stainless steel flashing added to ramp plastic. New half-height(16×128) LED dot display, no more high power board to deal with. 2 New Rotten Dog Boards — Power Board and Driver Board. Some lamps were replaced with LEDs. Newly painted legs, new adjustable feet, painted coin door, hinge & side rails. Painted backbox, added service decal on back box. New Checkpoint Vinyl Decals applied to the cabinet. RetroRefurb SideBlades(TM) Mountain Graphics inside cabinet. Backglass is in excellent condition, common lengthwise scratch from the rotating wheel screw-head middle/top. No acid damage on board, I did replace a few ICs on the MPU while troubleshooting when I first got it. The entire playfield was cleaned and restored. This playfield often has dried and flaked off paint on the top of the playfield from the lane light being on constantly on location. I cleaned up that, and repainted the top 25% of the playfield with HD decals, stencil and airbrush work. 4 coats of clear coat were applied and polished. See detailed pictures – the work is excellent and durable. See videos of machine operation below. Room lights on and off.

I got it in 1995 and the second owner, I got it for my son who was 5 and well, lets just say he played it a lot for the first couple years and then it has been used very seldom. It was never in an arcade and subject to constant use and abuse. I researched and found this is one of 3500 made and I will bet it is in the best shape of any remaining.

RACE FOR THE CHECKERED FLAG. Data East Checkpoint full size Pinball machine in excellent 100% working condition. This game was manufactured in 1991 and was the very first pinball machine to feature a dot matrix display, and the first machine to feature Lasermatic speed detection (which awards higher points the faster the ball is shot up the ramp). The machine also has other notable features such as player selectable music, a shaker motor, a unique key shaped start button, and a spinning wheel back box animation. A very fun and challenging game with a classic Porsche auto racing theme and a easy to understand ruleset. More information on this machine can be found on the Internet Pinball Database (IPDB dot com). This machine is in excellent working condition with no mechanical or electrical issues. Overall, I would consider this game to be in very good condition, but it does have some minor cosmetic issues with the playfield. Perfect game for someone who does not mind a game with some genuine arcade wear, but, if you are looking for a perfect game, then this one is not for you. The machine has just recently shopped with amazing LEDs installed. All general illumination, back-glass and insert lights have been upgraded – which make the machine really pop! New rubber rings installed, playfield cleaned with Novus #2, all plastics (top and bottom) cleaned, all seven drop targets replaced with brand-new targets and decals, new shooter rod, plus brand-new pinballs. Game will come with locks and keys. All circuit boards, including CPU & Driver, Display, Sound, PPB, and Flipper PCBs were fully tested and were serviced as needed and are in full working condition. The 128×16 DMD Display is bright with no bad segments, and the stereo sound is crystal clear (rebuilt sound board). In addition, this game has been upgraded with Pinitech NVRAM, which forever eliminates the need to ever change CPU board mounted batteries ever again, and more importantly, will prevent future CPU damage from leaky batteries. Cabinet is in very good original condition overall. It has been drilled for a lockdown bar, it will have some minor bumps and bruises from being in an arcade in its earlier years. The playfield is in good, but not perfect condition, It has mylar, which as far as I can tell, appears to be factory installed. There is some wear and paint loss on areas outside of the mylared areas (see photos). The ramps have some slight cracking and chipping at the entrances and exits (typical for this game) which does not affect game play. All inserts are in excellent condition, the mirrored glass trans-light has great color with no flaking, and the back-box spinning wheel is fully functional. Overall a Great Machine and in perfect working order with LED and NVRAM upgrades! The perfect addition for your shop, garage or (wo)man cave. Any specific questions, additional photos, videos, or to inspect and play the game can be achieved by using nine one six – seven one two – five five five three. I do my best to describe the condition of each item as accurately as possible. As with any classic arcade game of this era, there will be some minor bumps and bruises, this item is a former piece of commercial gaming equipment and is thus used and not in mint condition.
