I bought a Shadow for $800. Some people just want the machine gone.

#3 1 year ago

Yeah def could have been legit.

Remember to some people it was just a pinball machine they bought for their kids 12 yrs ago and now kids are grown up and moved out. So the machine is in the way or just collecting dust. I have gotten good deals because of this.

It's definitely the same game. $3500 for that filthy thing is a pretty good joke. It might clean up ok but likely needs at least 40hrs of work.

3k would be a great profit.

This game will not clean up well. The playfield and cabinet are both in awful shape and everything looks rusted. It's hard to believe the seller listed the cabinet as being in great shape. The ultimate example of a true "flipper" (the person, not the part )

I love it when the OP says, "Ramps are in good condition." Then goes on to say, "One does have a crack..."
So, are they in good shape or not? I would say not if they're cracked!

Ok I’m getting OfferUp

Dont bother never any good deals on there

So they bought it for $500 and immediately put it up for $3500 without even wiping the dirt off. Scummy flippers giving Greensboro a bad name.

#15 1 year ago

Actually I did not pay $500. I paid a lot more than that because the lady obviously had no idea what she had. She was very excited when I brought her a fair amount of money for a untested machine. No keys and no power in the house. As for the price I just threw something out there. It says best offer. I wanted to give someone a chance at it before I replace he playfield etc etc. cabinet is in good shape it’s just faded. Calm down ladies.

#16 1 year ago

Looks like it's been posted for sale here (although could be wrong). Would love to ask but there is no forum topic. Not surprised as I'm sure he'll just get a lot of flipping comments.

Well I stand corrected then.

#18 1 year ago

If i was in North Carolina Id take this in a heartbeat.

#19 1 year ago

Cool story bro. Now that the .0001% of ladies on this site have calmed down, do the rest of us need to as well? Just asking for a friend. Thanks.

Not here to bust your balls, but I just don't get it. The seller set
The price so why not happily give them their asking price and be on your way? Giving more then asking price doesn't compute for me. I love a good deal.

It is called good doing the right thing - I do it all the time when I am buying. Over the years I have found it pays to be honest and fair both when buying & selling. A couple of my "best leads" have come from giving someone more than they were asking including one of my recent warehouse deals that greatly upgraded our collection.

Yeah, thinking it's okay to attempt to burn a bunch of dudes by calling them ladies is no longer correct thinking.

However, if ".0001%" of Pinside's 45,778 members were ladies, that would work out to under 1/20th of one lady!

Yes, I triple checked the numbers and that’s what I came up with as well. Talk about a male dominated hobby

And you wouldn't have done the same?

Cmon man. What should he have done instead for you to think his actions ok? Picked it up, wiped her down good, then resold for $600 to make just a little profit for his small efforts?

Get real.

Since i have never sold a game it would be torn apart waiting on parts. Then it would be in the corner of my living room with the rest of my games.

You're right. Excuse me. Everyone should act and do things the way you do.

#28 1 year ago

Nice find. Good score. Hope you get as much as you can for it. Ignore the haters.

Then offer it for what you paid. That's a true pinsider.
