    What are you going to play for a week.

    Have you guys reached a cap for machines on display for play?

    #257 3 years ago

    I ask because I think Funhouse should be there

    #258 3 years ago
    Quoted from FlipperFreak:

    In addition to The Big Lebowski & Full Throttle, at our booth...we'll have Xpin Displays, Alltek Boards, Invisaglass & Pinball Bulbs Light Kits for sale.

    How much for Stern sized invisaglass?

    #259 3 years ago

    No, the space we have could technically hold 150 machines if we wanted... Bring on the machines the more we have the better the event will be for all.

    Quoted from Nighthawk128:

    #260 3 years ago

    Now that's a deal. Last month I was quoted $650 plus shipping which would have pushed it to $700cdn. Tommy, you guys rock!

    #261 3 years ago

    Ohhh $500 doesn't hurt as much at the 650+ I remember .

    #262 3 years ago

    Our dollar is stronger guys. Used to 400 times 1.45 plus shipping and duty.

    As much as I like the idea of my existing pins being worth more it would be cool if we got close to par so buying them would be a lot cheaper

    #263 3 years ago
    Quoted from bcrage88:

    150 machines if we wanted...

    Wow.. I have to finish getting funhouses' cliffy protectors installed, Centaur is solid ready for pick up.

    #264 3 years ago

    That is awesome both machines are excellent additions!!!! Can you fill out the 'bring a game' form, we have to pick up machines all around Edmonton next week and helps our schedulers determine where they have to be on a certain day.

    A schedule of events is now posted on the site, there is a lot going on so I thought it would be helpful to have one. Feel free to take a look!!!!

    I was hoping to shoot a little footage of the games on the floor at YEGPIN for my YouTube channel, The Canadian Arcade. Do I need to apply for a media pass or anything to do this? I'll be pretty discrete and transparent. I'm already in the door with my VIP pass that weekend, but wanted to check so i don't upset anybody or get in the way of anything.

    #267 3 years ago

    No issue, you already have a pass. I would just suggest that you inform people you are filming and they should have the option to not be in your footage if they so choose. Any exposure to show off this awesome hobby is welcome!!!!

    #268 3 years ago

    Sounds good! yes, i definitely check with folks to make sure they're cool being on camera. Some people are camera shy, or want a different angle or something. haha! We're excited to show off whats at the show. When we publish the video we'll tweet with Edmonton #YEG hashtag or something to get some general exposure out there to people who might not be following closely. We published a couple short informal pinball videos from our league nights here in Calgary, and i was surprised by how many people responded to the video saying they had no idea there was a place to play pinball in Calgary! When i first started playing pinball with these guys, we barely filled 16 spots in the little tournaments we had. Then in the fall, the Facebook group appeared and suddenly we had over 34 people in on the league, and I believe there's a waiting list of people joining us for next season! Its growing!

    #269 3 years ago

    Anyone out there purchase a VIP ticket for the 2016 Edmonton Pinball and Arcade Expo? If so you are in for some sweet swag!!!!

    IMG_0331_(resized).JPG

    #270 3 years ago

    Nice! Unfortunately I wasn't sure I was going to make it so didn't get the VIP package. Should be there Friday and Saturday though, buying tickets at the door like a peon.

    #273 3 years ago

    #274 3 years ago

    Ok, now I'm pissed! I just got back from weeks in the DR and tried to book my room at the last minute and they dont have any of those crazy colored 2 stories suites with spiral staircases available!!! Im not coming anymore.

    I was going to bring my TZ set it up in the room and have an AFTER/after party!

    #275 3 years ago

    For all of those that missed out on the VIP pre-sale thanks to the organizers printing a few extra passes there will be 25 VIP weekend passes available at the door. These will be $45 and include access to the special VIP party on Saturday. This is your last, last chance to get in on the party on Saturday night a nice opportunity for those who missed out, get their early on Friday to get your hands on these they MUST be purchased at the door no presales on these. As well we still have donor weekend passes available bring a machine get in for free and enjoy all the benefits of VIPs.

    #276 3 years ago

    This is going to be great! Stretch7 has been frantically working on and fixing pinsiders pins to bring to YEGPIN .
    BCrage88 and Puck have done of ton of work.
    Come out and support pinball in AB.

    #277 3 years ago

    Looking forward to seeing the Big Lebowski and Ghostbusters from Nitro. Bring some cash as Tommy from Nitro has been great!!
    Support Nitro!! they have been donated their time and some items to YEGPIN

    #278 3 years ago

    Nitro is really helping us all out. I didn't think I would ever get a chance to the TBL. I am excited to meet Tommy in person, so that I can stop bugging him about their Color DMD stock.

    #279 3 years ago

    YEGPIN has now gone over their goal of over a 100 total pinball and arcade machines at the event. Keep the donations coming, if you are having a hard time trying to sell your machine bring it to YEGPIN. If you have a prized possession that you want to show off bring your game there is still time!!!! We want to thank the huge support from collectors in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan who have graciously donated their machines for the weekend to make this event the biggest Alberta has ever seen!!!!!

    #280 3 years ago

    Flights are over $1000... I'm out

    #281 3 years ago

    I can bring my restored Addams Family up there if it is pre sold,I don't want to move it otherwise.
    PM for details on the game.I might move another one out of the collection as well.

    #282 3 years ago

    In addition to my players ToM, STTNG and Baby Pac-Man... my Batman Forever will also be in attendance (and it's for sale along with the Baby Pac-Man!)

    #283 3 years ago

    The first machines are rolling in? Who coming!!!!!

    #284 3 years ago

    Nice! i've never been to this venue for anything before. Hope they've got lots of juice to power all the games!

    #285 3 years ago
    Quoted from JoshODBrown:

    That was my thought too recently... I assume they have it sorted out!

    #286 3 years ago
    Quoted from robbiedoo:

    It was actually our biggest concern going in. We can't thank Tommy from Nitro enough. He set us on the right path to ensure power was not an issue. NinjaBoot was a big help in making it happen.

    Lots! Pm him for details. Don't feel it's my place to talk about someone else's price without him posting first.

    It's a rebuilt PinGod machine. He does great work I am sure it looks amazing! Take the risk, bring it up!

    #291 3 years ago

    Well, happy to say that the volunteers from YegPin came and picked up my 'attendees'... a HUGE shoutout to the people volunteering their time to move these things around for the show - if you see a volunteer at the expo: thank them!

    Keep an eye out for my pins at the show:

    Hey Libtech,

    You 100% can. That said, you don't have to. We have special for sale signs just for you (ok, to be honest anyone selling a machine) already made.

    #299 3 years ago

    Addams Family is sold.

    I can bring a STLE #24 up there if sold first,I don't think the new buyer would want about 300 more plays on it,but it's there choice if they want to put it in the show.

    Tons of mods,looks and plays like new.
    STLE is sold now.

    These owners don't seem to mind IMO it isnt the amount of plays that determines value of the machine it is the condition of the machine as a whole and how you have taken care of it that keeps it value. Pinballs are meant to be played and built to withstand 10's of thousands of plays. You just need to know how to take care of them. Look there is a space right there on our showcase row right there for it, lol...
