I’ve not had the pleasure of playing the Solar City table by Gottlieb in my youth, though after watching the video below I certainly hope that at some point I can come across it in the wilds of some arcade or Pinball hall. I’m not sure what it is about this design that strikes my fancy but it could have something to do with the awesome backglass featuring Flash Gordon inspired archers practicing their skill as Hawkwomen swoop down from some futuristic city while a Wizard slumbers in the bottom right.

A big thanks as always to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the pinball flyer you see up top as well as to Jean-Pierre Renault and the Internet Pinball Machine Database for the image of Solar City’s backglass. Make sure to follow the link provided to see even more images of the table.
