Just putting a feeler out there... I have a very nice Indiana Jones Pinball Adventure with an excellent pf, new decals on can, gorgeous powder coating, colorDMD, Pinsound, and LEDs.
I'm not in any rush to move the game, but I figured I'd post this just to see what is out there and maybe find something that will inspire me to do a trade.
Local trades only. Pics available upon request. PM if interested. Cheers
I'm in Toronto, and potentially getting a game from Calgary. Wondering if anyone can point me to a local tech or knowledgeable pinhead that I might be able to hit to do a quick quality inspection.
Thanks in advance
You can also try Mackie.
I'm in the same position with a potential trade in Calgary.
Just a self bump... I have a mint IJ IJ with colorDMD and Pinsound for trade.
Have a potential trade going in Calgary, but the shipping seems to be an issue for the other party. If this trade doesn't materialize, I'm open to other offers.
I've had a few offers already to buy the game, but I'm more interested in trades.
Here's a little video:
More videos and photos available upon request.
Can someone explain what would be required if I were to ship depot to depot.
How exactly do you wrap a game. The more details the better for this noob
And after you have it wrapped up, do you drop it to the depot and then they strap it to a pallet?
Just a bump... Very nice Indiana Jones Pinball Adventure for trade.
Have a potential trade for a TOM going, but it's not looking like it's going to happen.
Get in touch if interested in a trade.
Looking to trade this very beautiful IJ: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/52100
Interested in trading for any of the following (+cash depending on game) in order of preference:
PM if interested. Willing to trade/ship across provinces.
Quoted from algrande:
How many people do you need to tell you that is a beautiful pin? How many pictures do you require? You are dropping a pile of cash. invest in a ticket to come see it. You can be the only judge. Everyone has a different opinion as to what is "nice".
I'm just trying to do my due diligence before pulling the trigger on a big transaction like this. Anytime I sell something with a significant price tag, I accept that the party on the other end needs a certain level of confidence.
And especially with something like this where condition is so subjective. Even the machine I inquired about, that you personally clear coated, is seen as a very nice example to many. But looking closely you see ghosting on inserts, dings in the cab and other little imperfections. Is that still mint? Maybe to some.
I'm not looking to start up with anyone. I have a nice IJ for trade, and I'm willing to answer as many questions and take as many pics and vids as someone needs if we're seriously talking about a deal.
Have a little patience my friend, some of us are newer to this hobby
Can anyone help... I'm trying to ship a pin from Toronto to Vancouver and I've been told to try Vitran or Same Day.
When calling Same Day, they said they would only send to Vancouver by air at an insane price, and Vitran says they don't do personal shipping, only business.
Quoted from Lord_of_the_pins:
You can try to help this pinsider but he won't do the same for you he won't even answers you back when you try to help him . Totally ignorant !!
I sent you a PM. I didn't see your message until now. Take it easy brother, there's more than pinball to get through in a day
I have comparable quotes from Same Day, Day & Ross, and FedEx Freight.
Wondering what company you guys would suggest out of the bunch?
Quick question about Playdium. I have a AFM LE on order, and I inquired about what the final price would be since the converted quote was given to me when the US dollar was higher.
Adam gets back to me saying I can pay US dollars, but it would be $8299. I've emailed him back to ask how he's charging that while everyone else is at $7999, but he says he's waiting to hear back from his sales manager.
Getting tired of dealing with their bullshit... My next order goes through Nitro!
Just wanted to share a quick story about a fellow Pinsider that most of you probably know, Meegis.
I was looking to do a trade for one of my games, and he PM'd me to offer help in shipping since I had never done it before. He was exceptionally generous with his time, and went out of his way to give me info on pretty much everything I needed to know.
He also let me use his warehouse, where he spent at least a couple of hours with me wrapping it up and preparing it for shipment. He patiently explained everything he was doing, and even skipped his lunch the next day to wait for Same Day to pick it up.
Not only is Meegis the most awesome guy I've met on this forum, he's one of the most genuinely kind guys I've met period. Definitely need more people like this in the hobby... And the world!
Quoted from Rob_G:
I have a GoT Pro for sale, $6400 and that includes shaker and colordmd. The game is in like new condition. ColorDMD looks amazing on this title.
Wish this was in Toronto. This is a game I'm interested in owning for ashort while since it's one of my favorite themes.
Went to check out Cabin Fever tonight, and some of the GCs on these games were unreal. How the hell did someone put 11 million on Dialed In?!?!
Likely going to have a TWD Pro available in the near future with a brand new populated pf that Stern sent me (yet to be installed).
Figure I'd put this out now and see if I can get some trade ideas. Prefer local trades.
Quoted from sixtyfourbits:
Sadly I think the forth was just an event held for about two months over the summer, and is over now. Maybe one of the Winnipeg guys can correct me if I’m wrong though. It was put on by the Manitoba Pinball League and was games from people’s personal collections.
I might go scope out Half Pint.
Anyone know what games they have there?
Do you guys ever bump into each other at local events? I'm curious to know how that goes.
Do you guys stand by your disdain for eachother, or walk right past one another staring at your shoelaces?
I know if I'm saying half the stuff you are, things aren't going to be amiable in person.
Shake hands, it's only pinball...
Unless you dealt with a really well known wealthy member from Vancouver that ended up being a petty crook piece of sh!t
Quoted from Canuckgamer99:
Looking to buy Ghostbusters Pro in the Vancouver area. Please PM if you have one for sale. Hoping for a HUO with a few mods but let me know what you have available.
I do have some 80’s arcades in collector quality condition to trade if these are of interest to anyone. Moving these out to make space for GB Pro. Donkey Kong, Centipede, Defender and Popeye. PM for details on these if interested.
I know someone with a pristine LE if you are interested. Stern sent him a fully populated Playfield that he still hasn't put in so essentially you would be getting a brand new in box game. Definitely the best one available out there unless someone still has one in a box.
Have three games for sale:
Quoted from roar:
I didn't think Nitro could sell into Ontario... I thought you had to buy through P1 or someone else in Ontario.
I wrote to Tommy about a BM66, and he responded and copied Player One in the email.
I think they have some issues there that have forced him not try to put his hands in other's pies. Maybe the same reasons he never got his Toronto shop off the ground?
Quoted from FlipperFreak:
Just to clarify, Nitro is free to sell Canada wide. However, after much discussion... geographically it made more sense to concentrate our full efforts in the West. Who knows what the future holds...but for now our dance card is full....and we're working 7 days a week.
Makes sense. Just wish you guys were doing business out east. Hopefully in the future.
What service did you use to hold your game? I've always been curious about having a game shipped in the US and picking it up at the border.
Quoted from pinballjah:
I use Kinek. There is no fee, you just choose the location you want, they give you an identification number, and then you get an email from the UPS Store in Lewiston when the game arrives. They even helped me with both games I have shipped there, to get them into my SUV. Great service and trustworthy. Although I didn't leave the game there very long before I went to pick it up.
Cool, and what does that fee cost? Also what roughly was the shipping cost from the seller to the depot?
Quoted from Osric:
It's quite pricey due to shipping and duty. This shipment hasn't arrived yet, so I only know the cost without duty so far:
$300 PDI Sheet
$300 PDI Widebody
$210 Additional Shipping
$880 Total (USD)
I don't know of a cost effective way to buy in Canada other than getting a group together to order all at once to share out the shipping costs.
Anyone know how the PDI compares to Invisiglass from JJP?
Stern HD definitely isn't as good as the JJP glass. You literally see no glass at all.
And the junk that CGC puts on it's limited edition games might as well be standard glass.
Quoted from Graysonsdad:
Just to be clear, I imagine these are unpopulated playfields?
The Dialed In pf has the t-nuts and wooden rails installed, as well as all mylar. These are not available for sale thought JJP, so a pretty rare fine.
The Medieval Madness one is just the playfield itself. It was made for MMR, but can also be used for MM. Much nicer than the Mirco repros, as these were made by the same company that did the original pfs back int he day. I purchase this from PPS for $800 USD before shipping/taxes/duties.
Want to get some opinions here... I recently entered into discussion with a well known member here about a game. I sent him a $100 EMT, but after discovering there could be some potential/future issues with the game, I decided to back out. He is avoiding my texts about sending my money back.
What do you guys think I should do?
I have a family member that is in the police (fraud department) in his city, and I'm considering that approach.
I really don't care about the money. It's the principle at this point.
I don't rea
I contacted him the day after sending the deposit to say I didn't feel comfortable with the deal.
Nothing was put in writing.
This isn't like I've entered into a contract with a business. We're all in this community for hopefully the greater good, so sometimes I think you just have to be fair and treat each other respectfully.
I've returned a deposit before on a game, and didn't ask any questions. It just felt right to do.
