of the SEXY GIRL CONVERSION "TRILOGY"
Artwork by STUART WRIGHT, CPR Art Team
Sexy-Girl-converted Playboy machines exist today (approximately
15-20 in North America, and a handful in Europe).
Only about 100 conversion kits were made, via a partnership
between Arkon (Germany), Ranco (Switzerland), and
Bell Games (Italy).
Sexy Girl was a "Picture Pin" - meaning that the playfield
featured an embedded projection window where a slide projector
cabinet displayed 35mm color photos of nude and semi-nude models
right above your flippers. The photos changed as targets
hit throughout gameplay. The most recognizable component
of this conversion kit is of course, the backglass. Until
glasses were unobtainium. To own one, you owned the
game... no loose glasses, and no NOS specimens are floating
around out there.
The Sexy Girl backglass is a masterpiece of classic Mike
Martinelli artwork, and mirrored to the extreme. For those
who have never
seen one in person, you'll have to use your imagination with
these photos (mirror is hard to show in pictures).
Basically anything showing
as pale grey in the photos below - it's mirroring! Around
the score windows, the entire starfield, flecking in all the
hairstyles, and of
course the main logo and the Ranco branding. In short, it
kicked the Playboy backglass's ass.
The bare-chested blondie featured in the middle of the backglass
was Martinelli's interpretation of March 1976 Playboy Centrefold,
Ann Pennington. At the bottom of this gallery is
Ann on her acrylic chair. (warning:
photographic nude model - if you are at work!)
