Quoted from pingod:

Mandalorian LE still for sale, previous sale fell through.
14,000.00 O.B.O.

Great price, as I think the new Stern premiums coming out after January 1st in Ontario are going to cost more than $14k CDN with 13% sales tax and 1.27 FX. This is a chance to buy a LE for $14K.

#17752 28 days ago

Fully loaded TNA available.

PM if interested.

Yeah, not sure what is up.

My Sorcerer just sold, and there even seemed to be less looky-loo's than usual. Pins are red hot supposedly, but buyers are scarce? Yet look at the Banning auction... maybe its a Canadian thing?

#17754 27 days ago

JJP GnR SE $11,000
Like new, 300 plays. No playfield issues.
Interested in trade for Stern pro (TMNT, GoT, GotG, KISS, BKSOR, LZ, Munsters, etc.) plus cash.
Located in Winnipeg, might be able to deliver to Regina or Calgary.

No the banning auction joke was sold mostly to buyers from the middle east. Doesn't have a effect on Canadian or American markets at all. No one into pinball would pay anywhere near those prices. Less then 10% of sales were from north America buyers.

When did you move to the Peg Wil?

A premium at the new price point will be a just over 12k after tax.
I sold mine for $10,800 this week.
14k LE seems like a good price to me.
I think there is a hesitation in the market while many are unsure of what the new baseline is for a NIB.

Also, my Deadpool pro seller backed out at the request of his grandkids so I'm still looking for one.

I’ve had that happen before… both sides hahaha!

#17761 26 days ago

Hey guys, I'm looking for an Elvira House of Horrors, if anyone is thinking of letting one go, to make room for something new.... Also looking for Funhouse, Bride of Pinbot, and a Williams Medieval Madness. Please private message me, Cheers!!

#17762 26 days ago

Ehoh is just too much damn fun to get rid of!

#17763 26 days ago
Quoted from BC_Gambit:

Yeah, but in reality, it's often true.

I've jumped the gun because I've wanted a pin and inquired. Then, excited, I've discussed it with the better half only to be told "there are renovations we need to do and other shit that is way more important than a 10k pinball machine. Besides, you already have 12!" Then I have to do the email/call of shame and tell someone that my wife vetoed my great idea. And you'd think I'd learn, but then that one machine I've always wanted comes up and I know it will sell right away. Down the spiral I go.

Doh; I haven't had that happen yet. As long as I don't exceed my space (9 pins should be enough... right? ) my wife seems very chill about spending more than our vehicles are worth on a pin.

#17765 26 days ago

Just get rid of the wife and all of a sudden there’s 6 pins where the kitchen table used to be

#17766 26 days ago
Quoted from extraballingtmc:

I was stupid and agreed to "no pins upstairs, ever." Seeing the size of the game room, I was like, sure, that sounds great! That was when I had two pins.

Now the game room is full and I have one in the downstairs bathroom folded up (small room) and one in my downstairs office. I'm brainstorming of renovations based on getting one or two more pin spots.

If only the empty corner of the dining room could be used. She just doesn't understand!

#17767 26 days ago

I don't get the whole blaming a significant other for not following through on a commitment. Own your decisions. You may have not liked what your SO had to say and where they thought funds should be spent but at some level you agreed with them or you just would have bought it. So just own it! Go back to the seller and say I changed my mind The thought of throwing my wife under the bus to a complete stranger? Why? So I save face? An attempt to garner sympathy? At the expense of my wife? I have a lot more respect for someone when they say I've changed my mind, rather than, sorry my wife said I couldn't buy it. That doesn't sound like a strong unified relationship at all.

But... We were talking about inquiring, not making a commitment. And we were talking about the wife being the wise person, not the bus victim.

Most of us get excited to the point of being stupid about pinball. Wives are usually level-headed. If someone bails on buying from me because of their wife, I laugh and say "totally get it. Your wife thinks we're all crazy, and she's definitely correct!"

I like how you've expressed that... it hasn't been my experience however that the person inquiring doesn't bring that context into the conversation, it is usually a palms up, puppy dog eyes, whoa is me attitude of "my wife won't let me buy it", as opposed to, something more like you've described... cooler heads have prevailed, upon further thinking I came to the conclusion that now isn't the time.

I guess the key is when you blame your wife, you aren't admitting you were wrong to want to buy it. Maybe that's the impulse, "I'm not wrong, I'm just a good husband listening to my nagging wife."

#17771 25 days ago

My take is it’s kind of a bs situation. You should never go look at or enter into negotiations on a pin if you don’t already know the wife is ok with another game.

I’ve had buyers back out multiple times cuz of this and I’ve always wondered wtf you doing wasting my time if you not pre approved to spend the cash??

#17772 25 days ago

In my experience.. its takes about 1 minute to check in with Wife/SO to see if it's possible to inquire about a machine BEFORE actually emailing the person and bugging them. Or if you're really lucky, wifey see's a pin you want and brings it to your attention and tells you to buy it... perfect.

Actually this one started with my having a van booked and cash in hand for a Deadpool pro only for the seller's grandkids to have talked him out of it

#17774 25 days ago

still looking for a 1977 Eight Ball in the Toronto / Ottawa / Montreal area.
also looking for pre-1980 Japanese 10yen games
and a 19th century Victorian 9-cup bagatelle table
and a Jezzard Mini Cascade circa 1960 UK

#17775 25 days ago

I’m sure you all know but JJP is making more Wonka LE’s if anyone is interested.

Bride of Pinbot listed on an Ontario FB page for sale. No idea if they'll ship it, asking $5300 I believe.

#17777 25 days ago

If I check with the wife it's 99% no.
Forgiveness is easier,
Even easier if she is good at the new title.

If it's the same one I'm thinking of, the playfield looked pretty rough, and the seller said "Excellent condition"

Unfortunately a lot of people have drastrically different definitions on condition, but its worse when people put blinders on when selling, and they get angry when you dont like it.

#17780 25 days ago

Oh completely agree! Which is one of the reasons why I avoid buying and selling in the FB groups. I find those groups more prone to that sort of selling, much like any sort of swap & sell groups. I usually read those for a good laugh.

No need to avoid fb and the like, just be aware of who and what youre dealing with.

A lot of good apples in all corners, but the few bad ones may make the whole pot feel rotten.

(or maybe I trust too much upfront)

Here too. I learned my lesson this year. Ask for a lot of pics and video unless it's Dan or the million dollar man.

#17783 25 days ago

Damn every time that I see new posts in this thread I think there is a pin for sale.

Whoever picked up the Comet/Hurricane deal on FB the other day for $4,500 did well!

What are you selling?

#17788 24 days ago

Does anyone want a TRON?

Mods include mirror blades, mini arcade with working LCD screen (playing the TRON arcade!) and interactive ramp lighting. Pictures can be found on PinRev.

I'm looking for a trade involving a modern Stern PRO plus a bit of cash to make up the difference in values.

PM me if interested!!!

Yes for both. Good deal to someone.

I don't think there is much of a difference in price between a Tron pro and a modern pro anymore (well, the good ones)

Edit: according to pinside market estimates, I'm wrong. I stand corrected.

Special shout out to ballykissfan for doing such a great wrapping job on the pin he sent me from Regina. I should really do a video of the process of unwrapping a game. It is crazy the amount of effort that goes into prepping the game. Appreciate the help!

Some people wrap well, some people ship games standing on legs strapped to a truck wall with the head upright.

It takes some time and effort to really prep a game for shipping and I'm glad you had a good experience.

Lots of good people out there.

#17794 23 days ago

If anyone local (Edmonton area) needs some wooden pallets to ship a game I have a few that you can have. A few pinball ones, and a few larger ones from arcade games. No charge, you just have to come and pick them up. PM me if interested.

#17795 23 days ago

Fully loaded, minty mint TNA.

$10,500.

Can ship anywhere in Canada.

he knows how to package a game for shipping !

buy with confidence ! great seller

#17798 23 days ago

Whew, can't believe i'm doing this but.......like a band-aid right?

#Transformers Pro & #Monopoly are in for a move.

Could do a sale, a partial trade, a double banger trade. Looking to get into a Spike2 pin or something else new and exciting. Need to mix up the lineup.
Both are in fantastic shape and well kept. Check out my Wishlist or if you have something exciting that you want to move- fire me a PM. I feel these together are quite close to a Stern Premium.

Thank you sir!

#17800 23 days ago

Big shout-out to gblgbl for a great transaction and shipping for a new-to-me TZ. Really great guy to deal with, and he built a fantastic shipping crate. Was a pleasure, and I'm sure I'll enjoy this machine for years to come. Thanks for the great first experience buying a pin, and for a legendary machine!
