Following.
Sold our Blackout this morning and I'm going to look at a Pinbot this afternoon.

#9517 1 year ago

Looking for the following
-Afmr (special edition or limited edition)
-Totan
-Super Mario Bros.

Thanks

#9519 1 year ago
Quoted from ranman2001:

Is that the one on kijiji in Hamilton? Looks good in the pictures
I picked one up a few months ago from London, but not with LEDs for around the same price

It was. I had 4 offers in 20min. A guy from Montreal is coming for it.

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

#9526 1 year ago

Searching for the following. (Ideally in Ontario or adjacent), (Home quality)
- Totan
- Pinbot
- Afmr (SE or LE)
- The Addams Family
- Super Mario Bros.
My son REALLY wants to get "the one with the aliens" or Mario so the plumber makes the list.
Thanks so much.

#9568 12 months ago

Still searching for a high quality PINBOT if anyone out there has one.
Also casually looking for Totan, Afm LE or SE, Mario bros and Addams Family but REALLY looking to find a Pinbot right now. Cheers.

#9573 12 months ago
Quoted from Comox-Rocks:

Getting a pinbot in on Saturday and can’t wait!
Might be handy if you state where you live.......

Hamilton, ON. Like it says under my name. I see you are in Comox, BC.

#9575 12 months ago
Quoted from Spinape:

There’s 2 on Kijiji as of this am. One in Calgary, one in Lloydminister

I'll check those out thanks. I think I've already spoken to the owner of the one in Calgary. There is one on kijiji in my home town but the playfield is so planked it's not even funny

#9577 12 months ago
Quoted from Dee-Bow:

Yours dont say where your from bud

Weird. Show mine and everyone else from my account. Anyways, Ontario

#9584 12 months ago

Appreciate the heads up on those Pinbot machines but I'm looking for something in better shape. This is one of mine and my sons favorite pins to play. I'd like a machine that can sit out in my house for many years. Something like the one for sale in Indiana would be great. Thanks again.

#9586 12 months ago
Quoted from bcrage88:

Buy a project one and have it restored there are two of the best pinball restoration guys in our city. It ain’t cheap but if you want a mint example that is your best bet.

I live in Hamilton. I waited 4months just to have my Blackout serviced by the Toronto Pinball Exchange. I dont want to wait 3yrs to have it in my home. I'm open to suggestions of other refurbs in my area but I'd rather find a nice pin and just pay for it all at once

#9614 11 months ago
Quoted from pingod:

Who cares
Back to games for sale.
Pinbot and Congo for sale now.
Who wants them, lol.

What kind of shape is your pinbot? I'm looking for a collector quality. Cheers

#9653 11 months ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

The only thing I was interested in was the SanFrancisco Rush games. If it was the 2049 version I might have bid, but my limit would have been $2000. What did the Rush games sell for?
Rob

Rush 2049 is in that $1000 area in working order. Poor guys

#9654 11 months ago
Quoted from Sandeep:

Anyone interested in a HUO AFMle?

How many plays? Asking price?

#9660 11 months ago

Wanted: XMEN PRO

Looking for an Xmen Pro.
Preferably within driving distance.
I'm in Southern Ontario. Willing to drive about 6hrs to pick up

#9671 11 months ago

Wanted:
-The Shadow
-X-Men Pro

If anyone in Ontario is thinking of selling The Shadow, my friend is actively searching for one.
I am still looking for a Xmen Pro for myself.
Thanks.

#9674 11 months ago
Quoted from extraballingtmc:

What are those worth nowadays? 6k each?

A shadow is usually about 4,000 or more now. A good xmen pro is between 5,000-6,000

#9675 11 months ago

Thanks. I'll check and get back to you

#9695 11 months ago

This may not be the best forum for my question but does anyone in the GTA area of Ontario (I'm in Hamilton) know a reliable powder coat place? Someone who can do pinball parts ie wireforms, rails, legs, etc.
My friend got some wireforms done by an auto guy that came out uneven (edit: the guy admittedly did a great job on the larger items). They look bad a wreck the flow of the ramps.
I'm looking to get some work done for myself. Thanks

#9705 11 months ago

No luck finding an Xmen Pro still. If anyone in Ontario or Quebec has one they are thinking of selling please message me. I'm in Hamilton and looking for one. Thanks

#9713 11 months ago
Quoted from libtech:

Anyone have a BM66 prem they want to trade? I have a Starwars pro, or Game of thrones pro, or Full throttle Id trade, all have lots done and are HUO, not interested in selling any of them.

Not me. Just in my area.

At the risk of the rath of pinside.........maybe this can move on over to the Beatles thread? You keep getting my hopes up when I see all this activity in this thread.
Anyone got an Xmen?
Afmr LE?
Anyone?

#9777 10 months ago
Quoted from Eagles77:

I have a X-men pro I plan on listing on kijiji Calgary soon. $5500 if anyone has interest
Thanks

Pm'd
Never shipped before though

#9801 10 months ago

Hello Pinside. I'm looking to have an Xmen Pro shipped from Calgary. I've been talking to a gentleman through Kijiji. Yikes.
Has anyone in the Calgary area had dealing with a guy named Hany? Maybe even seen/played his Xmen before? He seems nice enough but I'd like to verify hes a trustworthy guy before I commit.
Hany from Calgary? Thanks

#9810 10 months ago

Thanks all. Not eagle77. Non pinside from kijiji. Hence my apprehension. Nice enough guy with a nice machine but............internet fraud happens all the time

#9814 10 months ago
Quoted from jesperpark:

Is it still on kijiji? I would be worried too unless someone knew him, or someone can go lay eyes on it first

Is there anyone in the area of Edgeridge Pk Calgary who may be willing to check this out for me. As it stands I would have to back out. He responded to my kijiji wanted ad but I have too little information about him right now to buy with any confidence. Thank you

#9827 10 months ago

WARNING!!!
Beware this pinball predator.
Hany Makram Hanna Shehata

Responded to my wanted add on Kijijii.
Has no ties to any pinball communities. Acted suspiciously. I mentioned having someone come look at the pin and he is now in the wind. His kijiji account has been closed and he no longer answers his phone.
Watch out for people like this out there. Thank you to those who helped or offered to help in this debacle. Super bummed though. His ghost pin was too good to be true.

#9829 10 months ago

I got a bit of the Hobbit bug tonight......just another game to keep me eyes out for now lol

HOLY SHIT.
Graysons Dad, I know you.
I know you from Ottawa Street North. LOL.
Small world where we're both almost screwed over by the same dickhead!

I'm not sure what you mean about knowing me from Ottawa st? It's in my city but it's not like I've ever lived there.....

Bounty Hunter Toys.

Gotcha. Hey man

#9854 10 months ago
Quoted from libtech:

Good you cought him before you got ripped off. Im assuming you contacted Eagles77 on here about his Xmen?

Little more played than I'd like. Doesn't help that I had a low priced huo game with mods already in my mind now. I'm a little disenchanted with the whole idea right now. I've got Iron Maiden on the way and new Metallica code to hold me over until I'm in a better head space.

#9855 10 months ago

Also, do me a favour? Can everyone text bomb this guy's burner phone to freak him out please. Since my own experience only days ago he has already contacted another person about their wanted ad. Total scum.

#9857 10 months ago
Quoted from BHmike:

So, that phone number belongs to RESELLER from www.iristel.com
Had a great chat with the lady on the other end, she couldn't give me any information, other than to say that it belongs to a reseller of their services, and a police report would have to be made.
Either way, this guy is scum, and I'm done with it.

I just spoke to iristel (its a phone fraud protection company btw lol)
I will be filing a police report at the Hamilton police dept if you want in on that Mike.

#9871 10 months ago

I'm looking to pick up more pins at the end of January and the end of March if anyone is thinking of parting with the following...

-The Hobbit (ideally Smaug)
-Attack from Mars CGC (Ideally SE)

#9874 10 months ago
Quoted from Hammerhead:

If AFMR doesn't work out, I know where there's an IJTPA for that 90's nostalgia fix
Cheaper too!

No more project pins for me.
Thanks though

#9907 10 months ago
Quoted from TBatti:

Revenge From Mars. $5,500 extra sheet of glass also included.
Plays great and PF is In great shape. One plastic is broken by shooter lane.

Wow, those are like $3,500 or less in Ontario and common. Location, location, location I guess.

#9909 10 months ago
Quoted from TBatti:

Yes you get a discount for cheering for the Leafs. I very much appreciate the bashing.

Actually i took it down about 30seconds after i posted it as i realized it came across that way but since you really want it back up here i guess...
I wasn't trying to be a dick. That's why when I read it back to myself I deleted it. Sorry

#9911 10 months ago

Oh, and Leads are over hyped garbage.

#9912 10 months ago
Quoted from TBatti:

Yes you get a discount for cheering for the Leafs. I very much appreciate the bashing.

And I have you know, I've never cheered for the Leafs a day in my life sir. The nerve

#9914 10 months ago

Dude, I deleted right after I posted it. You've just drawn this out into a conversation that will get attention. I apologized via this thread and pm. Stop pm'ing me. Jesus. I was apologetic. Now im just kind of pissed that your all mad for selling a game a double its value. You need to take a breath man. No offense was ever intended but you are pushing the limits.

#9915 10 months ago
Quoted from TBatti:

Our posts are 7 minutes apart but I ty for the apology and will remove in conjunction with your deletion. Cheers

Yes but MY post was only up for less than a minute. Just stop

#9919 10 months ago

I deleted anything to do with this guys post and he still keeps sending me pm's.
Should I start putting links to other Rfm ads at reasonable prices? Chill out man. Geez

#9921 10 months ago

And he already dropped his price $1,000 so maybe he realized i was kind of accurate in my statement

#9924 10 months ago
Quoted from TBatti:

It hasn't changed. You clearly are mistaken. why are making things up? you are looking bad. Stop lying about posts and creating threads about my changing something that hasn't been touched. You are truly a disgrace to this forum. You have a mission to be caught lying twice congratulations.

Omg dude.What thread? You are a crazy person. Piss off and grow up. Jesus. Why is this a thing?
Sell your damned pin man
*Seriously. I need to block you in all forms? Stop messaging me. Your hostility is gross

Xmen pro sold pending pickup, thanks for all the interest.

Bah, I needed until Tuesday before I could make a firm decision. Oh well.

#9997 10 months ago

I've a friend (Ontario resident) seeking a Star Trek Premium or LE once Christmas has past.
Just putting out the word now. Thanks.
*Personally I hope he finds an LE. Why Stern chose red for the Premium trim I will never understand.

Quoted from yanek2rank:

600$ Playboy Pinball in Regina on Letgo... Scam scam scam! Buddy called me and said its all wrapped up and ready to sell, just needs coin and can ship. No additional pictures as the machine is already wrapped up... People suck.

Same guy who tried to sell me an xmen a couple weeks ago. What name is he using this time?

#10086 9 months ago
Quoted from spinal:

Everyone likes money so people sell stuff for what they can get for it and not what they paid for it. When multiple people are interested in selling and buying the same things you have a ‘market’ with ‘supply and demand’.
Example: say there were no MM in Canada except for one which is owned by Fred living in Calgary. Fred was given this new MM as a gift from winning a contest from Williams including free delivery.
Fred wants to sell at today’s prices because he likes money. What he got it for has absolutely nothing to do with what he sells it for. Now what price should Fred sell it for?
The ‘market’ price is not only determined by Fred but moreso by what all the other buyers are willing to pay for it. A Canadian buyer’s only other reasonable alternative is to buy from the US for which he will have to pay at least transportation costs and taxes. Therfore, a Canadian buyer —will be willing— to pay this amount more for Fred’s machine so Fred can then bake-in these costs into his price. Yes, even though he paid zero shipping.
It’s not an explicit charge that’s added, it’s just one of —many factors— that can be invisibly baked into the market price. And I’m not defending it, just trying to explain one part of how economics might factor into pin prices.
In the end, a pin is worth what buyers are willing to pay for it and no more.

Well that was...... long
I had to stop halfway for some leven bread and to make sure there weren't any orcs on my trail.

#10098 9 months ago

Does anyone in Ontario have a High Speed they would part with?

#10105 9 months ago

I'm curious what the majority of you in this thread consider a fair price on a very good high speed. Totally shopped (by an actual shop locally, not just some guy saying so)
I've been approached by 2 high speed owners.
2,800 decent shaped, hella far to drive
3,800 the shopped one. Delivered.

#10106 9 months ago

I was looking to spend around 3,000 but I will admit the shop one is very nice. Only seen pictures of the less expensive one

#10109 9 months ago

Sorry, to clarify. The shopped one is from my local pinball shop. 40yr old shop and I've dealt with them for new pins. Reliable folks. The machine IS in great shape. Just wasnt looking to pay store pricing. Are these going for over 3,000 in Canada now. I dont have much pricing to work off. At least not Ontario pricing

Quoted from Damien:

Cheers gents!
Now time to get some buyers that want minty mint games

Wrong minty games for me though

#10337 8 months ago

Has anyone else been in contact with the guy in Owen Sound selling High Speed and Sorcerer together pretty cheap? He says they were his dads and he just want to get rid of them. He is being more than a little suspicious. I'm about a 3hr drive away from him and he keeps putting off my coming out to see them. It might be nothing but if you're thinking of shipping them, maybe be extra cautious with this seller. I've started to believe he has no games and that's why I've decided to put this possible warning out there. Maybe I'm wrong

#10343 8 months ago

Still keeping my eyes open for an Xmen Pro in or around Ontario if someone is thinking about selling their's. Nothing urgent but just putting it out there again.

#10344 8 months ago

Pricing Question.
What would most of you pay for a good condition Jurassic Park? Not a game I've been actively seeking but one came up and my 5yr old son would lose it if I bought this game.
Thanks

#10352 8 months ago

Still looking to pick up some of the following titles this year if possible......
1.Star Trek Pro
2.The Shadow
3.X-men Pro
4.Pinbot
5.High Speed
Within driving distance of Hamilton, Ontario. Cash in hand. Thanks.

#10366 8 months ago

Just wondering if any of those Jungle Queen (or Princess) EMs I've seen for sale in the last year are still floating around the GTA area? I can get a good deal on one....kind of, it's so far away I'd double my cost in gas. I'm in Hamilton. I'm trying to get together a few pins to eventually have a league night but I'm still too picky to put in games I dont really like. I like this game. It's cheap and it scratches my EM itch. I'm trying to justify driving 7hrs each way but it's pretty damned hard.

#10369 8 months ago
Quoted from Mitch:

I have a bunch of ems I'm selling including a really nice volley

PM sent

#10370 8 months ago

If I go for this Jungle Queen it's in pretty good shape but the inks are worn off the tiger pop bumpers.
Does anyone know where I might find replacement ones? Gotta have those tigers, they're grrrrr-eat

#10372 8 months ago
Quoted from Jokercyclone:

Pinball resource has them.

Thanks

Do you have a link? I'm not able to find them.

#10378 8 months ago

I've decided to make the drive to pick up Jungle Queen. 7hr 15min each way. Yikes. Good price though.
Now that I've gotten some good close ups of the game, I have a better idea of the damage done over the years. The most visually off putting things are cracked/chipped or broken plastics, the drop targets are worn and the blue bumper looks to have been cleaned with a harsh chemical that rubbed off most of the ink. I've found the pop cap (thanks for the replies) but I'm not a restoration kind of guy usually. I want to strip this down and get all new post and everything now. If someone can point me to where i can find plastics and drop targets that be so appreciated. This will be my fist real rebuild and I dont know where to get game specific item like that. I'm a stern Sam system guy. This is not my comfort zone. Thanks again pinsiders

#10385 8 months ago
Quoted from mcuzz:

That’s a long way to drive for any game, ? for a busted EM ?
What we do for pinball !

Fully working. Just needs new plastics and a good cleaning.
A good price is a good price. If a can have a fully restored Jungle Queen for under $1,000 I think that's pretty good in todays market

#10386 8 months ago

Bah, I was going to upload some pics but I'm not allowed in this sub thread? Oh well. It's actually in very nice shape. The plastics are just broken

Quoted from Hammerhead:

Centre post added? That's cheating!

Have you played a zizzle before? Its necessary lol. They are drain monsters. Also it was for my 5 yr old to get him interested in pinball

#10475 8 months ago

My son graduated to Iron Maiden(with a step stool). He still finds Metallica way to hard.

#10476 8 months ago

He also now has a wanted list. Thanks pinball arcade......

#10480 8 months ago

Anybody willing to make the quick drive from QC to Hamilton for me? Kidding. Just have a game out there I'd like but damn that's far.

#10481 8 months ago

Ottawa is my usual cut off point

#10484 8 months ago

Or I dont want to spend 700 on gas

#10490 8 months ago
Quoted from Meegis:

For the non-Ontario people here...
Hamilton -> Ottawa = ~ 470 km
Hamilton -> Montreal = ~ 600 km
Honestly, for 130 km more, it's not that far. And at highway speed it's about an hour difference.
Also, depending on your vehicle, even at a horrible rate of 2 tanks each way (which is worse than an H1 Hummer) at $80 a tank your at $320 in gas, not $700.
Further to all this, I can have a skid shipped from either for about $100-150
It's not that tough.

Except I never said Montreal. It's just north of Quebec city. 11hrs

#10491 8 months ago

2 machine in qc. 1100 km each way
Tempting but budget come into play.
4 thanks of gas and a hotel

#10492 8 months ago

Not all sellers are comfortable packing and shipping

#10493 8 months ago

And yes I would like that shadow but I havent made a deal with that person. If I can drive out and grab multiple machines it becomes worth it. Well see. I'm not a panic buyer. If I miss out they will come back up

#10505 8 months ago

I've combined my wishlist with a friends (mostly me lol) If anyone in or near Ontario has any of the following and are thinking of selling, please message me.

System 11 games
The Shadow
Junk Yard
Revenge from Mars
Xmen (Pro preferred)
Star Trek (Stern) (any model but pro preferred)

#10555 8 months ago
Quoted from EvanDickson:

Well, he's willing to accept the "closet" offer. I'd trade a wardrobe for a C2.

I think he would expect a portal to Narnia

#10558 8 months ago

Any Junkyard machines floating around Canada? One of my favorite themes and now my son is into it because of Zen pinball.

#10562 8 months ago
Quoted from toasterman04:

My favorite theme as well... and was my kids favorite... my boy was two and woke up in the middle of the night trying to go downstairs calling for bob! .... sooo good

My son is 5. He has just gotten interested in pinball but he wants mostly the 10k games. Attack from Mars, Medieval Madness, Addams Family. Luckily he also likes Revenge from Mars, Junkyard, Pinbot and our Iron Maiden.
While I'm not a huge fan of Rfm (one of my favorite art packages though), I was so happy to hear he loves the other 2 as they were already on my own list. He also is now aware of Deadpool (from spiderman cartoons) so he has mentioned that one as well.

#10563 8 months ago

And he asked me to look for a minecraft or ninjago pin next lol

#10590 7 months ago

Jesus. Who are these people and where are they getting the idea the pinball machines are made of gold? 10k for Getaway? I even messaged the seller to ask if it was to dissuade low ballers but he basically just told me to piss off lol.

The Getaway coin operated pinball machine / racing coin operated,

#10603 7 months ago
Quoted from Pauz21:

Hey man... I've often thought about a Canadian version of what the Project Pinball is doing in the states. I would love to help out with something like this. Oh... and Kick ass. You got this1

I reached out to Stern this year about getting some discounted machines to raffle off/ put in childrens hospitals around Canada.
They did not reply.

#10606 7 months ago
Quoted from mcuzz:

Canadian hospitals have way different rules than American hospitals. I believe this has been tried before with no success main reason was hygiene, safety and noise.

I live in Hamilton. There is a Ronald McDonald house next to the childrens hospital. They could definitely use some more entertainment for the families staying there and these rules would not apply. The hospital itself has tablets built into the walls with games on them but they are aimed at the younger, under 8yr old crowd. I tried to donate a bunch of older video game consoles and games, mostly ps2 and n64 systems (i used to refurbish consoles) but was turned away because they dont have enough TVs. It's just sad. I used to deliver plumbing to Ronald McDonald house about 12yrs ago so I've seen these families packed in there to he close to their sick relatives. I found them a foosball table a few years back. Anyway, just would have been nice to get some pinballs out there for the families.

#10609 7 months ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

For the right price someone can rip my Deadpool HUO Pro with Shaker out of my hands.

I'm not actively looking for one but pm me an idea what the right price might be? I could be interested.

#10612 7 months ago
Quoted from smokedog:

A local operator had a pin in our RM House for a couple years. What was stopping you?

I'm not an operator. I'm just some guy.

#10629 7 months ago

Hello pinside,
I'm currently talking to another member about possibly shipping my first pin (the shipping, not the pin). He seems like he is on the up and up but I have been mislead in the past. If anyone here has purchased a shopped game from transprtr4u please let me know. I just want to verify he is a trustworthy pinhead before sending any kind of payment or anything. Thanks so much
Shipping/etransfers are scary territory

#10637 7 months ago

Thank you for the feedback

#10664 7 months ago

These is an Addams Family for sale in Toronto for 8k. Seems good at first glance. He even has the topper. Seller doesnt seem to know anything about pinball though. His negative comment about the game is that it has a ball stuck on the playfield and he doesn't know how to remove the glass. I just messaged him so he can at least play it properly. It won't have been cleaned or waxed in several years. I'd go take a look at it but I just committed to another purchase.

Adams Family pinball machine,

#10665 7 months ago

Also, the above post is meant as a nice pin spotted for everyone to look at and maybe bring home to their collection. I'll be bummed if I hear people started low balling this guy.

OR.....its a scam lol

#10671 7 months ago

I asked about a seller out west last week and a lot of you guys gave him the thumbs up. I'm ready to go through with my first long distance purchase. Any advice on how best to protect myself during this transaction is appreciated.
I told him I will send $1,000 Monday and the rest when he is ready to ship (he is restoring it).

Im in for sure Rob. I've given up on finding one locally. It's a quirky theme with a lower run. Im just doing the same anyone would do when sending all of their pinball savings across the country. Just nervous. Nothing personal

Quoted from Geteos:

I've been looking for about a month now and no dice.
I'm not sure if that's a long time to be looking for a pin in this hobby though, haha. I've only been in it since the beginning of Feb.

I'm getting a junk yard in a couple weeks. Been looking for about a year. I've also been looking for an xmen pro on and off for a year. A month is a blink in pinball

#10766 7 months ago

I'm not hearing back from that Getaway seller anymore. Was probably to good to be true but I'm close enough I was willing drive it. Oh well, would have been a nice grab for my small collection.

#10772 7 months ago
Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

Sorry to hear that. Did you have a bit of communication before they stopped responding? I’m guessing someone offered a couple hundred bucks more than their asking price to get them to take down the ad and give them dibs on it over everyone else.

More likely a scam. I live an hr away. I responded 2min after the post and he ghosted when we started talking about a good time for me to come to his house. He was working until 5pm apparantly and I was free all day with my son who is on March break. Hopefully someone got lucky but the kijiji account was brand new, the price was REALLY low and he disappeared after realizing I could just drive there.

Quoted from greatwichjohn:

You never know with Canada Customs. Had a WOZ coming in years ago & had all the brokerage done. I still got hit with a $200 additional bill from Day & Ross when they wanted a special inspection of the game (from the truck).

I paid $80 duty just for one colordmd to Ontario in May 2018. Its almost a random thing

#10789 7 months ago

Watch out for the Toronto Getaway seller. He is looking to rob people. He vanished as soon as I purposely stayed saying WE will be there soon. Ive been speaking to another user on pinball revolution who recieved fake pics AND pics from the Calgary ad. This is getting out of hand. Always be wary if sending money electronically but I should have to worry as much going to look at a local pin. Being worried about getting stabbed over a pin has never been an issue in the past. Geez

I already own Maiden but I will take that $3,000 used pro you speak of.

Quoted from TwilightZone:

I have a heavily modded HUO Tron for sale or trade. Located in Ottawa, Ontario.
Has 3D translite which is the best one IHO. Game is in fantastic shape and working 100%. Still smells brand new. I just replaced the EL wire and did a top level shop job: cleaned ramps, cleaned plafield. Completely plug and play
Mods include:
- Arcade mod
- Lit Flynn sign
- Lit recognizer
- lit flipper buttons
- Cliffy ramp protectors
- Shaker motor
- EL wire on ramps. Just installed this weekend
- Lit cycles. Orange one is not working; however I'm including an extra that you can mod. So you can fix it or replace it.
- ZEUS stickers on stand ups
- Stickers on stand ups of Recognizer
- Sticker on top of Recognizer drop band
- LEDS in GI and in some inserts
- Mylar in shooter lane
- Easy remove mylar on side of cabinet to avoid flipper button wear
- Easy remove mylar on TRON inserts. When I was looking, I saw a few HUO Trons with chipped playfield inserts on N so wanted to proctect that area
Also included as the extra goodies that came with the game and original items:
- extra pair of lane guides
- extra set of stickers
- one extra sling plastic
- original light cycle and Cora's car
- original Tron Arcade
- original Recognizer
I've uploaded a bunch of pictures:
http://s229.photobucket.com/user/tz_2084/library/Tron
Asking $8,600 CDN.
Games I am interested in HUO IMV, HUO TWD, Taxi, and TFTC.
I'll also be listing a C37. I just got another and going to decide which one I want to keep.

Damn, bad timing. I'd have jumped on this in a few months but all my funds are tied up at the moment. Good luck. Such a good game.

#11087 5 months ago

Still looking for a few games but really focusing on Stern Star Trek or Shadow right now. (ideally in my area)
Thanks

#11089 5 months ago

There are about 12 in the Niagara hotels. One in my local pizza parlour. Not looking to go play one. Looking to buy one for my home thanks.

#11093 5 months ago

Sorry. I wasnt clear enough. My mistake.
I am looking for a Shadow in good shape.
I am also ready to buy a NIB Star Trek Pro Vault in a couple months IF I cant find a HUO one in great condition on the used market by then. I'm after a minty Star Trek.
After that would be an Xmen pro but im really after Shadow and Star Trek first as I prefer them and I already have a Borg game in my small collection. Everything else I'd like is out of my price range. Thanks

#11095 5 months ago

Jerry at Player one near me (good guy) has Star Trek Vaults in stock. I'm going to pick one up by June IF I can't find a gently used one 8n the meantime

Quoted from Darscot:

Damn I do like me some Tron but $9500 for a Pro, I could just never do it. All the power to you selling at that price and I am sure some one will scoop this up. Stern has to be considering vaulting or even a re-theme of that layout. There is just so much money on the table.

I'm praying for a Batman '66 style retheme with the original 80's movie.

#11199 5 months ago

Hey all. Not looking to sell but I would consider trading my Junkyard toward one of the following machines. It's in very nice shape.
(In order)
-Medievel Madness remake (either model)
-Total Nuclear Annihilation
-Star Trek Pro Vault
-Attack from Mars (any model)
-Batman '66 (maybe)
PM me if you have one of these titles and are looking for a trade. Cheers

Quoted from paul_8788:

People can price their games however they want. I think with the other mods I had in it it was a fair price. I could've knocked 500 more off, a thousand off, whatever, but not desperate to sell. That being said I didn't get a lot of price objections, just a lot of tire kickers that responded and then went silent. My least favorite part about selling pins.
I am in a weird place with pinball in general right now, where I am swinging between selling everything and just getting out of the hobby altogether, then the next week thinking about buying 3 more games. Think it is time to just take a break from it all for the summer.

I hope you dont bail but if you do you can contact me about your xmen

#11405 4 months ago

Anybody had any interaction with Mike from Burlington on Kijiji? He has the High Speed posted with no pics at $1,600. I messaged him as soon as he posted it and again this morning saying I'm local and can come to take a look. No response. Feels like another fishing for suckers ad but always worth checking out. High Speed is on my wanted list so I see all the fake ads. (Usually High speed 1 and 2 or Addams family. Also had "Hany Makram" try to rip me off for an Xmen pro)

#11407 4 months ago

Agreed. Just crossing my fingers that it is cheap and no pics because it is beat up. I'd like to fix one up.

Mildly considering letting my decked out Metallica Pro go but only if I can get a reasonable amount for the love I have put into this game. I bought it new in box from player one Toronto last year. It has a production date of March 2018. Its been in my house the entire time and has low plays. I love this game and bought it as a Metallica fan (hense the money I dropped into it.) Perfect shape. Here are most of what I've done and I have receipts almost everything. Still have all the original parts.
-ColorDMD
-Dmd gasket
-Pingraffix art blades, 3D snake, Tournament button cover
-Mezel Mods snake fangs, tongue x2, Sparky helmet el lighting
-every Cliffy available
-Light blocking cross inserts
-Pinnovators Sub kit
-Pinbits Sparky airball guard
-Toronto Pinball Exchange custom lights
-Guitar picks
-Shaker motor
-purple T molding
-Titan rings
-locknuts changed to chrome domes
-Coin Taker Cemetary Arch (lighting changed to purple), Creeping Death speaker decal
-Snake wireform powdercoated green
-Crank it up light panel
-Speaker lighting purple
-Coffin skull insert
-Plastics protectors
Full transparency I have $11,000 into this. I dont expect to get that all back but let me know if there is a true Metallica fan out there looking for one hell of a decked out game.

Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

I'll be driving back into Saskatchewan again soon, so I thought I'd make another wanted post.
My budget is a bit higher this time, so hopefully that helps. I have $4500 to hopefully nab a pin from my wanted list. Some games I'm interested in are:
- Batman Forever
- Baywatch
- Demolition Man
- Independence Day
- Monopoly
- X-men Pro
- Starship Troopers
- 007 Goldeneye
- Star Wars Trilogy
- Harley Davidson (Sega/Stern)
For some I wouldn't look to spend my full budget, and for some I might not be able to find in my budget. But I thought I'd toss it out there and see if anything happens.
As mentioned, I will be in Saskatchewan in about a week, so pickup may be possible. I'm also open to the idea of shipping from a different province for the right game/price.
Thanks!

I would LOVE to find a Xmen pro for that price. I prefer the art package and I hate the iceman bridge ramp shot and dont even really care for the pop up nightcrawlers. Only thing worth the upgrade to me is the magneto disc. Love that.

Not entirely on topic but I'm selling my Donkey Kong on Kijiji but would also take pinball trades. It is an original DK with the plaque. It has a high score save kit installed as well as the DK trainer rom, DK pace rom and the DK deranged rom. Collector quality and then some. I can come down to $2,500.
Would be most interested in trading +/- cash for one of my wishlist games but will consider other titles.

Nintendo Donkey Kong arcade (original),

1up idnt doing Nintendo games (so they say) and (original) DK code isnt even technically owned by Nintendo. I cant see it happening. This one is for a collector anyway. Thanks so much for the tip.

Current used pricing keeps me buying newer games. I can get a Stern pro nib for the price of lots used pins now.

Is there a list of Canadian stores to buy from online somewhere buried in this topic? A kind soul referred me to flippers.com one day that lead to my first pin (TSPP). I can say that John was terrific and I highly recommend them, and I keep checking to see what he has listed.
Any other online stores like his? Preferably Ontario.
