Cant believe you sold both your IJ's Jason! I ended up fixing up another one.
I'm looking for a Congo, anyone have one?
I may have to pm on that apollo 13 as well, love that movie..
Hey Guys, I'm after another pin to add to my collection, Id be interested in one of the following: twilight zone, congo, or the simpsons party pinball.
Can be a project, just needs to have a nice Pf!
Drop me a line if you have one!
No kidding, thats what I was thinking, only a month old, I dont think there will be any difference. Great price imo
Hey does anyone have have a mario mushroom world they want to sell? Want to get one of the wife, get her into pinball
You should buy this one lol
seriously though, wasnt there one on maaca a week ago?
Huo one with no wear that just needs a clean? Would probably go for about 4500usd so his price seems pretty cheap
Yup, meegis will definately help you spend money, just ask me
Quoted from wcbrandes:
Looking for a very clean Sopranos if anyone wants to part.
There is one in calgary for 3800 maybe you can work out shipping with him http://www.kijiji.ca/v-buy-sell-other/calgary/the-sopranos-pinball-arcade-game-by-stern-excellent-condition/593491469?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
Quoted from Pauz21:
Might not be in the cards for me then. Thanks boys.
There was one in Quebec for 4600 a few weeks ago but it seems to be gone, I doubt youll see one under 5k as mentioned, our dollar sucks, and will push all prices up sucks because that means less machines for us all!
If your after a acdc Id grab that one in ont for 5k NIB looks like a private seller so no tax... great deal
I got the same one, lol no accidents and origional paint? must have started scamming car buyers!
Quoted from volkdrive:
Bought mine almost a year ago....no regrets its underrated. Problem with that machine is a lot went on location. I've played 5 or so in theatres/airports and how many were clean/functional? NONE! A good working HU machine is a blast to play.
True, the one at the edmonton airport is pretty dirty... different layout great theme, it has potential!
Quoted from MapleSyrup:
Anybody know of an ACDC Premium for sale in the Vancouver area? Doesn't need to be NIB or minty, just a great players machine. Cab scuffs or dings are no issue, as long as playfield is clean. Lower PF window clear etc. Prefer standard pre to Lucy. Any info would be great. Thanks.
you just missed that one down east sold fast a few days ago, 7k
Quoted from bcrage88:
If I can continue to get good response from the community here in Edmonton for our events maybe just maybe be willing to try one out here in Edmonton. No promises but been thinking seriously about trying it out to see if would go here...
Ive always thought about organizing one as well.. I think there would be enough intrest these days especially with calgarys not happening. We should chat
No kidding, Ive seen Spencers tz, 5k is way to low! But true, without listing a price, I guess what do you expect
Thats the problem with the market right now, to buy anything else youd need to get the full exchanged value, but no one wants to pay the full exchanged value yet to buy the game.
Thats why when I restored my ww I sold it to a buddy so I could go visit it great game!
Damn he didnt even post his machine here.. paul is a good guy, let him sell his machine
Yes, calm down boys, I can guarantee you Ryan what you think happened is NOT how Josh got that stle, I dont know who youve been talking to but there was nothing 'weasely' about it.
Value wise from what Ive seen just under 7kusd is where Ive seen them selling stock which is about 9kcan right now. Generally prices are a little less here than straight conversion. Ive seen a few sell above and below that, but that would be average. And thats from someone who doesnt own one and with no intention of buying one.
That being said, I think the price will drop after gotle is out, with all the praise its been getting I think the spotlight will move on to it.
Quoted from mstellato:
Hey guys. The guy put an ad for stle for $7200.00. I was the first one to call. I told him I would accept his price and asked if I could pick it up in the morning. We agreed to speak in the morning to arrange a pickup time. He texted me the next day to say he had sold the game to someone else for 8000.00. He said he was offered 800.00 more and couldn't turn it down. I wished him and the buyer good luck. That's what happened. Period. End of story. Draw your own conclusions from that. But let's move on to trading pins!
That is what happened, but the night before he and I were talking as well arranging a pickup time (on Josh's behalf) he told me I was the first caller as well.. so draw your conclusions from that. Anyways we were supposed to talk in the morning but he never called so I contacted him. He told me that he recived a bunch of emails saying he was selling it too low and that he relisted it for 8k that morning and deleated all emails/calls he had gotten from the night before and it would go to whoever called first at the new price (which was me that morning). 8k was still a good deal, so I told him we were good to go and Josh picked it up.
Hopefully that clears it up once and for all and there are no hard feelings anywhere, there was no bidding or over offering. The seller deleated everything and relisted at a higher price because guys were telling him he wasnt asking enough.
Probably the same guy who was posting that 'all out clear out' wanted ad, someone who is bitter about where prices are on machines.
Quoted from str8cash:
I like the funny ads on kijiji Alberta. Is the new one yours too Spencer? Price policing is hilarious
The funny part is the guys doing it sure dont give anyone deals when they sell, but expect one and are the first to comment on high prices when they are looking for a game
Bsd usually goes for just over 2kusd as well so its a very similar situation actually, for me I want a st pro, the usually sell for low 4kusd, and the only one I could find he wanted 6k can for it. I dont like paying full converted prices, but to do that Ill have to sell my games at the same. And the price I posted was 25-2600usd which is reasonable.
Either way, Im thinking there will not be alot of movement in collections except to the states for the next while. But no use complaing about it, it is what it is and its supposed to get worse before it gets better...
Exactly, no one is even going to post games fs if all we do is bitch and post stupid shit like this: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-video-games-consoles-other/edmonton/want-a-pinball-machine/1132865105?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
Quoted from str8cash:
Find me bsd for 2k us and I'll buy 5 of them. I have 2 friends in the states who recently paid 3k + and were both happy with their purchases. Bsd $2800 us, Bop $2100 us. Big difference. But whatever, who cares. Good luck with your sale.
Heres one for 2200 fs right now, and one for 2500, theres even one one on ebay for 2750 which tells you something: http://user.xmission.com/~daina/classified/search_for_sale.cgi
And if you search the pin clasifieds about 4 sold this year for 1900-2300
That being said if was in super nice shape, it definately would be worth more, and if your buddy was happy with the deal and game then all is good either way (and it was a good deal as 3100can is 2100usd right now ) Like I said usually I price my games slightly under what they are worth, but these days since Im going to be paying alot for what I want, that cant be expected.
For bride, for sure a bunch sold around 2k this year, but find one for sale there now. There are 4-5 fs right now in the us, lowest is 2600 highest is 3750 bride has alot going for it right now like bop2.0, new playfields being released etc.
Either way, its not worth all of us arguing about. Its an expensive hobby, mainly because its gotten more popular and also because of the dollar. If its not worth it to you or if you cannot afford it, stick to lower price games or unfortunately it may be time to move on to a different hobby.
And thanks for the wishes on my sale, but its trade only now since I dont wat to deal with this, I just want to play some PINBALL! \ O /
Quoted from Freeworld:
I have read many posts that say to stay away from the seller in Kingston. I have not found any with reasons as to why? I have been thinking of purchasing a specific table from him, all the pictures, and a video sent to me look real good. Can anyone please tell me what to watch for here. Thanks.
One reason is if you look at the pics in this add, one is my pic of my taxi... lol
Quoted from smokedog:
Well, never say never ... but I'm gonna say never Maybe after I make it to Valinor.
It came all the way from Vegas in my first major trade, it's got some great history. Plus it's still one of my top 5.
So never... lol, maybe you could do it Jay, wont be happening at my house any time soon anyways!
Been quiet round here! I can help with that.
Looking to trade one of my pins for a mint low play huo startrek pro:
First my addams family, has usual wear on chair scoop and mansion, but plays great. Would need some cash with st for this one ($6-700)
Second my huo super low play xmen pro (under 200 games), looks like it just came out of the box. Straight trade.
If you have a st pro send A pm and we can trade pictures neither are for sale right now until I fine one, after maybe. If you have a st pro youd sell pm me and maybe we can figure something out.
Swapped all lamps on xmen to LEDs today, and it looks awesome! Purple super bands and some custom cards soon too
Pinside members price - $5500
Search out a whirlwind or taxi if you want a great sys 11, there are some pretty bad ones too, but over all a great era of pinball.
Going to be fs at yegpin, cant sell/trade before then however if you want it you can prebuy/trade and pick up after the show
Hopefully! Thats what these things are for, if I loose a few hundred bucks not a big deal 5k firm after yegpin for anyone (if prepayed/deposit is given)
Quoted from pinball77:
I think there will be a few for sale at yegpin. Come out and check them out!!
Not sure, I think this one will be the first listed in the fs section, It wouldnt be cool if you just popped them for sale mid show. Not fair to the guys putting it on.
Thats awful kind of you Josh, cheque's in the mail I assume?
Quoted from puck:
I am sure some of my EM's will not be making it home with me. Trades will be made! Sorry lib tech I have not gotten back to you on X-Men, but glad to see it at the show. Should I not get my mits on a Rob Zombie I hope to the be lucky owner of your X-Men. Sounds like Rob Zombie is shipping in April!
No problem, if you want to check it out beforehand let me know
For Sale at or after YegPin!
First my Xmen, mint, full LED's and 'wolverine' coloured super bands! (Not shown) Latest roms, mylar around mags now new shiny balls from PL. Asking $5450
Second my Addams Family, typical mansion wear and chair hole wear, (you can clean it up with a decal and cliffy, but I was waiting for the cpr playfield) comes with about 750 worth of new parts (ramp, plastic set, backboard and vault decals, new flippers, superbands, rubbers, pop bumper parts, star posts, coil sleeves, pretty much everything youll need for a resto) Price is SOLD
For sale at or before yegpin! And you can pick them up after the show there or at my place.
No trades other than a trek pro.
Thank you, but Addams has a deposit on it, so I guess you can change it back sorry
Yea sorry it wasnt dispensing tokens, it really makes it feel more special. I actually bought a bunch of tokens to put in it for the show but they were slightly too thin and the mech wouldnt pump them out :/
Xmen is really fun tight shots and in great shape! Im surprised no one has taken it home yet.
I think a floor model pin is still new, so the huo term is fine, its like saying when you buy a car if its on the lot it isnt new.
The real misuse is when people put 'unconfirmed' huo that always makes me laugh
Either way who cares about terms, condition is all that matters.
Pinballoutlet.com has a tf pro too, never delt with them though but they may be closer
Putting up my medieval madness pinball machine to see if there is any interest, its a nicely restored game with new pretty much everything and gold hardware.
More interested in trades, Id consider multiple titles or games plus cash, here is a list of what Im interested in (must be HUO/near mint):
Wizard of oz (LE only),
Batman dark knight
or a GOT pro
Id value it at 10k USD, and am looking for a local deal at this time.
Added 23 months ago: Sold
Added 23 months ago: Not sold, never mind!
Added 23 months ago: Asked lots on can price - $12500can would get it
Added 22 months ago: Sold!
Looking for one of the following, anyone have one to sell?
Game of thrones pro
Going to offer up my Safecracker for trade:
Its in great shape, very nice playfield and cabinet, plastics are all good as are the ramps. It plays very good without issue and comes with approx 10 tokens. All LED's (except the exposed lights which are coloured), just cleaned and new silicon rubber/superbands put on.
I'm not interested in selling, but would straight trade for a green version WOZ LE, thats all thought Thanks!
Added 20 months ago: Cant part with it...
Not looking to sell, only trade (again pretty much straight for a WOZ only although thinking on it Id consider a hobbit deal as well)
Here are some pics, its a pretty nice copy, some mods, few extra lights, propellers in the planes that go off with the flashers on the ramps, and I painted the planes to more closely look like the ones in the movies.
Added 20 months ago: pending
Gonna put up my Bride of Pinbot for sale/trade - its been restored and is beautiful also a bit custom
Stuff thats been done:
Black cab instead of purple,
new rails/legs/stern style protectors
new repro prototype style playfield (only a few out there)
new faces on the head
upper playfield is new
new playfield apron
all starposts are new (yellow)
popbumper plastics are all new
all stern style leds on the pf - cool white fits the space theme
new silicone style rubbers
translucent yellow flippers
all top metal pieces tumbled and stainless regrained
all slieves replaced on soliniods
Thats about all I can think of, it plays and looks great great.
Last one Ive seen in this sort of condition sold for 6k usd, I'm asking 6k can, will straight trade for a huo batman TDK or trade for a WOZ LE (and add cash). Want probably the nicest BOP in canada lol? Heres your chance.
Pics (more to come):
Added 20 months ago: sold
Quoted from pingod:
Do you have the Dutch pinball 2.0 kit installed
Hey bud, no it doesn't, I like the 2.0 kit, it adds some good depth to the game, however IMO removes a bunch of the 'Charm'. Happily we have one on location locally and I can play it there, so never found the need to install one in my machine.
Its just a very clean game with thousands in new parts
Tough one, I'm usually just a trusting guy, talk to them on the phone if they seem genuine then I go for it. But it is a risk.
As mentioned, get lots of good quality pics, everyone's standards are different - even if you get a local guy to check it for you, so the best description is looking at all the photos.
On the other end of things when selling, I wouldn't take anything except E-Transfer either, since there are too many scams the other way as well.
The best thing is when shipping deal with guys on here, at least they have been around a while and maybe you've seen other transactions they have compleated that went well.
Looking to buy a Batman tdk, game of thrones pro, or met pro Shoot me a PM if you have one you'd sell.
Not much difference, just leds (which most will have by now), swinging bell and the newer metal head right?
Still looking for a game: batman tdk, met pro or got pro - now adding an avengers hulk to the list of wants
Yea if it was a few months old sure - but 3/4 years old, plus those early mets had alot of playfield issues you have to watch out for.
Went through this exact decision and went lcd, brighter colours and the former factor makes for easier installs on more games.
You can vary the brightness as mentioned, I'd only get the lcd if you want to run the high rez mode.
Walking dead pro in Edmonton on Kijiji, I know a few guys around here are looking:
Dont suppose anyone has some spare whitestar boards to sell? looking for a 520-5300-00 mpu board, mainly maybe a display board too
Addams is tougher, but crappy ones sell for around 6k up here these days so with clear etc if its pretty nice I would think about the same 7kish
Nice one here by Edmonton if you feel like a drive 700 for a fore, don't think that's too bad depending on which version you want.
Quoted from Spencer:
I sold my Spiderman a year ago for $5600 and it was a tough sell. I regret selling it now and if they are 7K+ now, I'll probably never own another. Unreal how much these things have gone up.
Yea, I still regret not grabbing it, but I didnt want to screw the guy over I was looking at it for even at the time it was a great deal for a nice sm.
Really though a nice huo one should be low 6'ks but what I was saying is if you really wanted one you should be able to bring one up from the states where they are more common for no more than 7k (stock) so to offer more than that for one would be a mistake.
Quoted from Dave_W:
There is one at the Playdium Store in Montreal. They can usually ship to other Playdium points of sale throughout Canada. Don't remember the price... Sorry.
I can send you a pic of it if you want (took it for a friend who was also looking for that game)
No there isn't.. anymore
Willathrilla on here had a pro he may sell, shoot him a PM inf your interested vf
Quoted from blowback1976:
I have good word, that it's being picked up at the end of the month.
Sweet! Looked like a nice machine, colour dmd too. Always better to find pins close to you as well.
Quoted from Dave_W:
It's very nice! I admit I played a couple games on it.
Congratulations on the purchase!
Ok good to hear lol, got not great pics, but it looked to be in exellent shape, but its always worrysome buying at a distance.
Quoted from puck:
I didn't see that one. Wow! If you don't get it I will, lucky for you it's 5hrs from me. Great machine for $1500. Sounds like it'll need some work, but you don't see F-14s for $1500 in Alberta often.
Yea, if that was closer I would have grabbed it just to bring to yegpin!
There is a matrix list but basically lighted ramps (like tron maybe?) Lighted art blades, special side/translite art and goodie bag, lighted beacons on top, powdercoated armour in the colour of your choice (blue black or green)
There are 500 LE's, one of em is coming my way, cant wait
Not a whole lot of love for Transformers, and the LE has a worse rep then the pro, universal hate for the LE upper PF
Also it would be a hard one to move later unless you got it for 4500 or something, and you should be able to get a better game for pretty much that price. eg there have been a few treks floating around for around the 6k mark.
Looking on here machines that sold seemed to be asking 5700can for an le and 5000can for a pro, minus a bit for negotiating of course, so the price isnt at all out of line, everytime I see one it just seems to sit for months though.. However with the increase in price of popular/new pins in the last 6 months there is probably more interest in these less desireable titles since they are a bit more of a percived bargain.
This one was there as well - it was the white one in the fs section, the one in the front row was Gilles
Nice collection, your place looks like a fun place to hang out! Id post what your asking, guys want to know what balpark your in. Thats alot of transformers you have btw lol!
I bet you they are on here - hopefully not the yeg pin one since if he sells I doubt it will be there!
I also will have a game for sale at yegpin (can sell before, but needs to go to the show and can be picked up afterwards) its a bit of a rare and interesting game, a 1984 Mechatronics Fire Escape - its in very nice shape and everything works
Id sell for $1800, or trade for an ICB/Zekes peak (or towards a GOT pro/Batman TDK)
Interesting story if you have a chance:
Added 15 months ago: Not mine but a gameplay video:
Added 15 months ago: No longer for sale.
It is a very neat and fun game, it has more depth and challange than icb, but Id still like to own one for a while.
My problem is room, not willing to sacrifice pin space for arcades Id have to choose my MK1 or this, but mk has too much sentimental value for me to part with.
Yes, I belive the guy was going to make these for ice, but they didnt like it, so he assembled a few himself, there are only a few prototypes that got made that say ice - this is a non ice labled one, but still very rare only a handful were built.
Either way, it will be at Yegpin, give it a play if you come down!
Decided to sell a few games to clear a wall for different games lol, so Ill have the following pins for sale on kijiji:
All three are in amazing shape and HUO. I would do a partial trade for either a batman tdk or an ice cold beer
First is my Hobbit Smaug edition $10500
Second is my Avengers Hulk: $7800
Third is my Ironman VE (lots of mods) $7500
Quoted from Spencer:
I actually paid way less and I've been cleaning it for the last 6 hours, replacing bulbs/rubbers/posts/etc and its coming up even better than I expected!! Really excited about this one.
Still need a sheet of glass, anyone??
I bet nitro is selling glass and bringing it to yegpin, you said you may be coming down maybe grab some there
Quoted from noahd42:
Yeah that is what I was thinking.... not worth the hassle which is too bad because I wouldn't mind getting a T2 or T3.
If they keep getting those kind of offers, you would think they would get the hint. Like someone else has said, reasonably priced pins are gone so quickly around here.
Wonder why she would want to go through ebay?..? Weird - more hassle and fees for her.
Either way 2k is too low, seem to go for mid 2kusd on here which is ~3.25kcan
Ok a few changes since last, Fire escape is back up for grabs, trades Id be interested in are still a batman TDK, a Game of thrones pro, or would maybe consider a RCT! I'm close to yegpin for those coming.
Fire Escape arcade: $1800
Vid for those who havent heard of one lol:
Hobbit Smaug SE: $10500
Speaking of Yegpin, going to do $600 off either pin I have, or $200 off fire escape for guys on pinside - if picked up this weekend only (prices are firm though)!
Hobbit Smaug SE $9900
Avengers Hulk LE $6900
Fire Escape $1600
Added 14 months ago: Hobbit no longer for sale, fire escape pending, just avengers left
Quoted from Dee-Bow:
I cant find fire escape on the list of games?!? No search results found
Its not a pin, but a skill game like ICB, very rare, which is why no one has heard of it but awesome! It will be on free play at yegpin:
Hopefully yall enjoyed it at yegpin - I still have my Fire Escape for sale, I can do 1600 for pinsiders
Quoted from Lord_of_the_pins:
Who knows you could be first in line if you called a couple minutes after . I called 40 mins after no answer but phone was on , later his phone was off . Probably got sick of calls and had to turn off .
Probably a prank - a buddy posted it with his number - get a lot of phone calls to his number to screw with him.
Could be fine yes, I only say that because guys are saying his phone is off and hes not returning messages, or maybe hes just realizing its worth more and waiting, 6000 is still a very good price.
I think someone mentioned the are doing pro's now, and prems this fall? priced at todays prices I'm sure so 7490 + tax on a pro.
Still have my Fire Escape and Avengers Hulk LE for sale, think I found a game I want to buy so priced as low as I can do to make room:
Fire Escape: $1600
Avengers Hulk LE: $6900
Added 13 months ago: no longer for sale
Added 13 months ago: Both back up for sale lol! Didnt mean to strike out FE!
if you have a sleeve for sure change it first, if you have to order stuff just order a new coil, if the coil has been over heated in the past sometimes they change shape and get tighter inside, so a bit of warmth squeezes the plunger and makes it stuck.
Quoted from flashinstinct:
Yeah they totally fucked the side of my lotr cab and essentially hid behind theur claim policy even if it was obvious that they damaged it.
I saw your pics, that sucks hard but think it could happen with any carrier, and Im pretty sure all would suck for helping you out, shipping is a risk for sure, but often nessisary to get the game you want.
Shipping isnt horrible in the states, but we have it better thankfully. However shipping to and from the states sucks mainly due to the brokerage fees and taxes. The shipping itself is often not that bad when considering the distance traveled.
