I might sell something if offered lots of $$$ over book
Selling my Addams family. Mint playfield, limo mod, fester mod, full cliffys, mirror blades, colour dmd
Also selling my super nice twilight zone. Huo for last ten years. Pyramid topper, shiny gumballs, piano mod, rocket ship, camera mod, third magnet, mirror blades, sub woofer and full cliffys.
7500cdn no trades, no shipping
still have my taf and tz for sale, fully modded, bladed, perfect playfields, nice cabinets except tz was drilled and touched up, 7500 each, no trades, prefer local pick up
Gnr and metle are in maple ridge boys. Not going anywhere either. Too hard to find again.
4800 is giving it away. I don't 6k is a bad price for a nice example, especially in Canada with the dollar so unfavorable
Zio is very real. I know him well. You can do business with him in confidence, very professional.
Just wanted to vent about the dollar for a moment. I wanted to buy mmr and th but with the dollar adding a 20% premium plus 12% tax on top of it all is just too much. If I bought and the dollar drops resale value will only be equivalent to the value of the game in usd so potentially 2k lost
The 8k mmr is $11,048 cdn after taxes exchange and shipping, just gross. Think I might wait and buy huo when usd drops.
Anyone else rethinking buying nib cuz of dollar?
Lol yeah I'm not impressed. Around 10k to my door is my max. Annoying the albertans can get it home for 10.2. I'm thinking wait on a huo and hope the dollar changes in my favour.
How would I do that? Got no where to send it. Then I have to drive 24 hours or so to get it home? Is there another way?
There was 2 ss on vancouver cl recently. Not sure if they both sold or just got pulled. One was super nice, modded, new ramps and stuff.
They won't keep on making them. If they sell the 1000 le then yes they will make standards but they won't just make one here and there. They will do a run of say 250 then again and again until the demand is met. Then they won't make anymore unless tgere is enough demand. I doubt they will make more than a few hundred standards. The 1000 le plus lowered prices on an original should well satisfy the demand for this title.
We have no choice but to wait for dollar to come back close to par. The games aren't going anywhere. Buying a huo in a year will save you even more money too. Just be happy with what you have or buy local used pins in the meantime.
looking for an gnr mystery when lit/axl plastic and an wh20 left boulder if any of you Canadians have these kicking around and don't need them, txs
still hoping to find the left boulder for wh2o, the one where the mine is. anyone got one kicking around they can let go?
4200usd for the pair plus exchange plus 12% at the border U.S. maybe $500 shipping.
Big Txs to redketchup who very generously gave me an mystery when lit gnr plastic for free. He even paid the postage!
Interested in zaccaria locomotion, robot, pinball champ, spooky or magic castle if anyone knows of one.
Quoted from leaffan67:
Hey Western Canadian folk. Anyone have contact info for Jordan Hudson in Vancouver? PM me if so. Super nice guy and good player! I have some pin buying questions for him.
He plays in the two bar leagues in Vancouver. Occasionally in the vrpa as well. Don't have contact info but I could forward yours if you like through a mutual friend.
Quoted from Meegis:
Hes had it for a while now. I spoke to him twice on it. Not ready to go that high if I dont have to. Im in no rush, and it would have to be shipped (which Im fine with), just would rather find one local if possible.
A few options coming out of the woodwork, but will wait and see.
Nitro price on the stle is really good, considering the exchange rate right now. Not likely to find a cheaper one. I've played it. It's really nice, plays great.
That includes tax I think. Same thing as 7kish usd right now.
Kiss looks pretty sweet but the dollar is killing us.
That met a year ago wouldn't have been the new led one eitger so obviously cheaper. The dollar has raised prices on everything. No way to find a met led less than 5k. Nib be around 7k after tax, dollar and shipping. Only a thousand or so less than I got an le for
Me too lol
I have a feeling we might see them all pop up soon but with a 50% surcharge
Yeah I don't get the need for a stle either. Pro is all the game one needs. That being said I own an metle so what do I know lol
What do you guys think a huo standard woz should go for in cdn $? 7.5 boards plus new power supply btw.
Quoted from mandrick:
Lol...wouldn't call myself a flipper....Not that it is a bad thing but i certainly don't do anything for profit...I am just a collector who gets bored of the same games over time so I tend to sell them or trade them...and I think I have traded or sold 6 games over 4 years....I did refurbish one game in the past, but the only "flipping" I have done has been to Nitro for NIB games...maybe you have me confused with someone else??
Lol oh sorry mandrick. Thought it was someone else's game.
One at mission was decent, Emily won.
One at my house for other league finals was pretty fun. Eden won that.
Don't buy it! The le adds nothing. You will lose money at that price. The code is not even finished.
Quoted from Edster:
This is just plain ridiculous. Talk about money hungry border patrol. It's bad enough they grab tax on a used item but to take your truck apart and leave you there to sort it out, that is just sad. I've had some really good experiences bringing games back but now they are so hungry for money I dread even considering the trip. Nothing like being treated like a scum bag criminal when you are just trying to bring a game home from the US.
Just declare the proper amount and have a receipt and you won't have any problems. The written receipt is the key part.
Several years ago I couldn't give one away for 3200. Took me about 6 months to sell it. Now they are super desirable.
Quoted from str8cash:
Seriously, a $8000 taf??? I guess it's now in the same ballpark as mm, tz? Please pass on whatever this guy is smoking cause i defiently want some. I see the St. Albert gorgar seller will be re listing his pin next week in a new city. Guess his Christian angle didn't work out.
Since when can you get mm for 8k cdn? Please show me so I can buy and flip.
Quoted from c2scanada:
TZ in Vancouver, B.C. in excellent condition. Everything working, no errors
- Invsiglass $400
- Colordmd $400
- Flipper Fidelity $125
- New Legs and feet $100
- New Lockdown Bar $100
- Upgraded Clock from Europe $100
- LEDs and backglass Led Mod $250
- Flippers Rebuilt including coils replaced $100
- Rocket mod$50
Spent over $1500 USD on modifications before taxes and duties
Playfield and Cabinet are in excellent condition.
$7500 CAD Firm or trade for a Walking Dead Premium or Pro +/- Cash
Local pickup only.
7500 cdn is a steal imo for this game with those extras.
7500 was giving it away, colour dmd and invisiglass are worth 800 cdn at least plus the other mods. I sold one with some mods but no glass and no colour display for 7k over a year ago.
I don't mind him asking that much but to not even put up pictures to maybe show why they are worth top dollar and then some is ridiculous. No colour dmds in them either.
Only a small portion of playdiums business is even pinball, their focus is on other things.
No it doesn't. They just want them advertised at the same fixed price. In person or on phone all distributors can and probably will give you a better price.
Quoted from MobRoller:
With the Vancouver Flipout expo about a month away I imagine some good trades/sales/deals are going to be popping up. I know I will be bringing a couple of machines that I am willing to part with (F-14 + Buccanneer)....maybe time to start its own thread. Who else is coming and is in the same boat?
Great idea mobroller. I might have a couple to sell there too.
Super straight by Sonic/segasa will be for sale at Vancouver flipout this weekend. Plays perfect.
1500 obro by end of show.
Looking for a gold wings and a heavy metal meltdown. No project games, players condition preferred.
Quoted from tomdotcom:
Guy sent me pics of TAF. Looks like they were all ripped from this website...
Guys names is Andy Upsala in the email...
lol Andy upseller
Where all the hmm hiding? Surely someone wants to get rid of that horrible annoying game with the loud rock guitars.
I'm trying to work out an deal in a different province. How do you guys go about making payment so both parties are safe? I read vids guide and seems to recommend escrow. What do you guys do if neither party knows the other?
The game I was looking at is in Saskatoon. A pinsider knows the guys and has taken several photos and a video for me. I'm pretty sure the deal is good but the actual owner of the game is not a pinsider and I don't like the feeling of being vulnerable once I send the money hoping I get a game back lol. He doesn't want to do paypal because then the seller is at risk. I do have a line on the same title in Portland,OR which is a several hour drive for me but then at least I can pay cash and pick up game in person.
Just wish there was a better way to do business but I guess there really isn't, you just have to take a calculated risk.
Txs guys. Gonna explore the Portland deal a bit more. Long drive but no risk. Never been to Portland either
Tax be pretty cheap. Only about 100. So between my gas and tax that equals the shipping kind of. It's just the time but if the owner would meet my part way would be awesome.
I got my embryon the same way. Drove about 4 hours to a random truck stop and literally slid the tarped game from one pick up to another in the pissing rain site unseen.
Yeah I'm torn. Gonna fish around and see if anyone else has any business in Portland, maybe get another driver won't be so bad. If not ship the Saskatoon one
Quoted from pingod:
Looking to sell or trade my Spooky Pinball Rob Zombie #115
All factory mods that were available at the time.
Plastic protectors,upgraded LED's,Back Alley Creations light up mods.
Hit me with your trades,no junk,no EM's
Already?! How come? Game not your cup of tea?
Quoted from GoodManners:
Coming into this late - Portland is an excellent Pinball city and I'm sure there are some pindeals to be had.
When I lived in Vancouver I would sometimes daytrip to Portland, pick up two pins, and drive back. Even better if you can drive down Friday and back Saturday. Good food, good beer, = win.
And as you said you can look at and evaluate the pin.
Seattle is also a good Pinball city. And closer.
Been super busy last couple weeks so games on hold. But yes there was a second game in Portland I was interested in so a 2 for 1 trip wouldn't be so bad. Most definitely stay the night though.
Usually 500$ off for a floor model if you negotiate and they like you. However a floor model can easily sell for full price if it's the 'last one' and customer really wants it.
I sold my sopranos earlier this year for a lot more. Had blades, laserrific topper, original dancers and goodie bag still attached. Great game, only sold for space issues.
Wow!!! That's crazy. 8k usd is about 10,800 cdn.
One more reason to hate playdium. Ripoff.
If the le is 8995 what's the pro? What's the difference? And how many le they making?
website says 9295cdn for pro and 8700 usd for le. Are these the real prices or what they are told to post as msrp?
8000 by 1.37 is 10,960. Seems good. Most Canadians add the tax value to a sale as well.
I asked my broker this year too and was told they are covered under contents. Keep pics and any receipts for nib games. I do worry about how value would be established for an older title especially when condition can affect pricing so much.
My prospector and gb premium will be setup and for sale at Vancouver flipout so go play them, bring some cash and let's make a deal.
Quoted from Comox-Rocks:
Just putting this out there...
Finishing tweaking up royal rumble this month. Would like to potentially trade for a Jurassic park,tommy or add cash for an AC/DC pro. Playfield is in excellent condition with only minor wear around the scoops. Cabinet has some sun fade but would look great with new decals. Game located on Vancouver island but looking to come to Vancouver/Seattle in next month.
Would consider other 90's dmd pins.
Cash price on the royal rumble?
Selling my gb premium. Original owner, huo, all the fixes done, plays perfect, no ghosting. I’ll take some pics later.
9k no trades. Prefer local sale but if no one local wants it I can ship if buyer makes arrangements.
No tax on game going to the states, just need to pay a fee around 10$.
Full gst and pst on game coming back.
4-5kusd depending on condition imo
fwiw one just popped up yesterday near me on cl for 5300cdn obo, says its fully working
Sonic/segasa prospector for sale. Perfect playfield, backglass, average cabinet. Plays perfect no issues.
$1500cdn can ship if needed.
Embryon also for sale. Playfield has a bit of wear, cabinet is average, backglass is perfect. Plays perfect and has been upgraded to 7 digit scoring with new blue led 7volution displays. Also have the old 6 digit ones.
$2700 cdn can be shipped if needed.
Gb premium still for sale. 9k cdn, lower than retail even before the tax! Retail is 7400usd converts to 9250cdn as of today.
Quoted from Fytr:
I played that Prospector (I assume it was the same one) at Vancouver Flipout and it is in amazing condition. Really looks and plays like it just came out of the box.
Txs! Yes that was mine. It really is a beautiful game, had it for several years though and it’s time to switch things up. My last sonic used to have 4.
Embryon now $2500
Prospector now $1400
Gb premium staying at $9000 as that’s the best priced one in BC and its already less than retail.
Quoted from extraballingtmc:
Embryon now $2500
Prospector now $1400

With our dollar weakening these prices are getting better by the day!
Gb new code coming soon, retail up to $9500. Embryon rare weird themed super wide body. Prospector great family theme, hard to find machine, sucked at pinburgh? Buy this game and practice for pinburgh 2018!
Quoted from woz:
There's a clip of Prospector in The Canadian Arcade video of the Vancouver Flipout just posted. I doubt that playfield has had any work done on it at all, certainly not by extraballingtmc
» YouTube video
Lolol oh man if only he knew!
Txs woz for that clip. Made my day
