Quoted from TheShaft:

Thanks, sent them a message. Looks like it’s out of a business, anyone dealt with Kingston billiards and games before? No price listed, but would I need to pay taxes on top of it?

I am pretty sure an ACDC pro at that place in Kingston will cost you at least North of $10k.

It is a business. Have not dealt with them as of yet.

Quoted from dirkdiggler:

You were offered $9500 for a acdc pro? And didn't immediately throw your hand out, type yes absolutely, etc? Find that hard to believe. I can find multiple loaded premiums for that price without much work. Never heard of a pro selling north of 8k.

It has everything under the sun, colordmd, pinstadium, pinwoofer amp and speakers, Aurich translite, speaker lights/grills, upgraded cannon, train, volume control, backlit translite panel, etc, etc. I have no reason to make this up.

They will charge you tax on top of the asking price. 13% in Ontario, not sure about BC.

#17605 6 days ago

They will ask a ridiculous price, don’t bother

Iron Maiden Pro wanted, willing to ship as well. PM with the details. Thanks.

All the games at Kingston are a few thousand more than they should be. Their Stern pros are over 9k before tax vs getting one at P1 for around 9k all in.

#17608 6 days ago

R&M BSE for $14,500.

PM if interested.

Hi folks - I'm looking to add two pins to my home bar and was wondering if there is anything for sale around Saskatoon (or willing to ship). Looking for classic titles (Medieval Madness, Twilight Zone, Adams Family) or a newer Stern as a place holder until I find the classics

Finding one of those games in good condition is like winning the pinball lottery, even then you will be paying a premium. If this is your first game, are you willing to pay 12k+ for the titles you mentioned?

As mentioned, pricey titles. I would actually recommend you pick up one classic and one modern, if you're looking to buy two machines you can't go wrong having some variety. Modern games are great for deep dives with their expanded rules, strategic play, low maintenance, fast pace, great animations, etc. Classics have timeless gameplay and satisfying shots, easy to pick up and play, fun callouts and playfields that are packed with toys and sculpts.

Not everyone loves Twilight Zone or Adams Family, despite their status in the pinball community (myself included, I find both of those games to be duds, just a personal preference thing). In my experience, almost everyone enjoys Medieval Madness. If you're not comfortable doing work on the games yourself, there are a bunch of great pinheads in sask who could help you out, but, you could also go the route of a Chicago Gaming remake of Medieval Madness, which imo is superior to the original in every way (but you'll pay for it). Pair that with a proven modern game with decent code (take your pick from the top 100 on here, you won't go wrong with many of them) and you'll be happy.

I would avoid just outright going for two classics, for a number of reasons. One, you can always trade games and one good classic for another is no problem. Same with modern games. Pins hold value pretty decent unless you buy NIB, and even if you can't trade, you can sell and buy. Two, classics are fun, but if you're playing a lot, you'll crave a bit more. You get a lot more bang for your buck these days out of modern games, where a Whitewater is basically the same price as an Iron Maiden, which is hilarious to me. Three, pinball is subjective. People rave and rate tons of 90's games like they are the best thing since sliced bread, and while there are tons of fun games, if you only have a couple in your collection, you will get bored of them if you play them for any decent amount of time. This is why most people, unless they have a large collection, buy and sell so much, but the modern games tend to stay in collections a bit longer in my experience.

Orrrrrr, you could just buy two classics and keep trading for other classics if that's your jam, since half the people on here would disagree with most of what I just said anyways.

I agree with a lot of what your saying but… I’ve had the privilege of owning newer titles and classic 90’s Bally/williams pins. The biggest thing that puts me off of new pins is the poor quality of parts, components and the biggest beef I have is the poor play fields they send out of the factory. NIB play fields should not have dimpling, poor finish coats, cheep plywood and start to chip paint after not a lot of play. I only own 90’s Bally/williams classics now, they hold there value well, there’s no comparison with the quality of craftsmanship etc. Having said that, I think it all comes down to the thyme, illustrations/colours, rule set and the rhythm of play. First time buyers BE AWARE, this is a fucked up hobby, once you buy one pin you’ll be hooked and it will consume a lot of your time and money. For the most part Pinsiders on this site are helpful, it never hurts to ask for references of a pinsider and the way they conduct themselves. I’ve been in this hobby for just over 10 years and can’t believe the price increases since then(damn Americans). Happy flipping to all!

#17617 5 days ago

I own a lot of both, the Williams / Bally era is much more maintenance for sure for example an original AFM goes down every two weeks as you are getting yourself into an older game. You are probably right thou if you compare a B/W now and a Stern 30 years later they probably do not hold up as well, but the newer machines are way less maintenance as they are new, we rarely service ours and they get thousands of play on them.

You may want to give Devron a call at absolutepinball.com. He's in Saskatoon and been in the business for longer than the vast majority of pinheads I've met. He has a bunch of machines for sale and has a huge knowledge of information about pins of all types.

Good luck with your hunt!

#17619 5 days ago

I'll second Devron! I've spent hours chatting with him about pinball stuff, awesome guy!

#17620 5 days ago

This is all great advice so far - really appreciate it. I got a few offers through DMs too - great to have some leads! I do like the idea of 1 modern, 1 classic.

#17621 5 days ago

I have a pretty nice Road Show I’m thinking of selling. No fish spot wear. Cabinet has some fade but is in good shape. Plays 100%. Kitted out nicely with Comet LEDs, Sunlight GI and a colour DMD. $5500 firm, no shipping. In Kelowna.

#17622 5 days ago

I talked to Devron - he says he is super busy and wouldn't get a chance to do a restoration for me for about 2 years. The machines listed on his site are all pending restoration - nothing ready.

#17623 5 days ago

great pin at a great price, glws. I love my RoadShow

I wish I could let go of some of my games, but like so many say "pinball is hard" and what they mean is, once you start collecting it is hard to let go. but hey lots of great decent pinheads in Saskatoon!! Hit us up if you ever want to go out and play on location at Pokeys, or make some pinhead friends and get into some private collections.

Just a random statement but every time I see Saskatoon I think of Grown ups 2. They had a muscle guy with a kids voice he said he was from saskachatoon! It was pretty funny!

Sooo. What's a Godzilla LE worth, shipped to your door in Canadian pesos?

#17634 4 days ago

Kidney,spleeen annnd 1st born! Too much for me..but it looks so frikkin cool. Premium or LE would be the shit.

#17635 4 days ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:

Probably about 15k landed depending on dollar

#17636 4 days ago
Quoted from extraballingtmc:

Honestly, I'm thinking between $16k and $17k, but it will depend if you buy from P1 or Nitro. At least with Nitro, you will save PST. My Elvira LE was over $14k landed when I bought it last spring.

Are the LE sold out yet? I can imagine the prices are pushing some folks either into a premium (at best) or just not buying at all. The pro just seems so stripped down.

Rob

#17637 4 days ago

LE's are sold out everywhere (save for maybe a couple). I went with Premium for mine and I'm fine with that, game looks absolutely stacked.

Now I gotta debate whether to sell something...

#17638 3 days ago

If the conservatives win the election and you wait until December to make your pin purchase you could save the GST! Might be the best savings you'll find on NIB games.

I need to move to Alberta to make it better

Any of you guys have a place to stay and a job to provide?

#17640 3 days ago

I went premium as well, just too much missing on the pro.

#17641 3 days ago

WOZ Ruby Red 2.0 up for trade. Game plays great and looks great!

#17642 3 days ago

Hey guys, been watching the forum for awhile but haven’t been an active poster. Enjoy all the pinball conversation and all of your nice collections. Currently have a Nitro Ground Shaker and want to grow my collection. I seen the RS above posted but wondering if anyone else has any pins coming up for sale in the BC / Alberta area. Tempting to just get the new Godzilla haha

#17643 3 days ago

After not knowing the jackpot I had in the basement being a Monopoly. Looking for a straight up trade for a Beatles Platinum.
