Reviews of the "This Old Pinball" (TOP) Videos:
The TOP#5.1 & TOP#5.2 video was reviewed in the April 2002 #91 issue of Pingame Journal:
"This Old Pinball is at it AGAIN!", and in the May 2002 Gameroom magazine: "You get more than you deserve for the pittance they charge for BOTH videos."
The TOP#4 video was reviewed in the Summer 2001 Pingame Journal #85/86: "After watching this dynamic duo work their way through the process ... one may think, 'If these two can do it without having parts left over, so can I!'"
The TOP#3 video was reviewed in the July 2001 Gameroom Magazine: "I URGE YOU to get a copy of this video NOW... This thing ought to have a $50 price tag. And it would still be cheap."
The TOP#2 video was reviewed in the September 2001 Gameroom Magazine: "I think they're absolutely friggin' crazy for selling their videos at six dollar each including shipping... Get the video. You must own it."
The TOP#1 video was reviewed in the May 2001 Gameroom Magazine: "In truth these are a couple of serious guys who hobbiests would be wise to observe as they offer sound restoration advice and practices... and all through their deliberate wisecracks and dim witted observations, the viewer will come away with a mile high pile of restoration techniques and expertice that is rarely available under one roof. From polishing and buffing, to playfield strip down, to pop bumper assembly rebuilding, to cabinet repainting, to parts tumbling - it is an absolute goldmine."
The Pingame Journal also reviewed the new & improved TOP#1 in the June 2002 issue: "TOP #1 never looked so good!"
