Wow Dan, can't believe you're letting Spidey go.
Bump for a beauty game, buy with confidence.

Agreed. It is a very nice example. Good luck Dan!

Yeah, it is definitely different than a few months ago. I am battening down the hatches myself. Not going to be firesaling anything just to buy another pin that I might have to firesale later if I want to try something else. Going to let someone else take it in the wallet and meanwhile just play what I have.

Quoted from misfitdart:

There is no duty on anything made in the states, brokerage on a pin coming up here would be brutal, ship to over the border storage in sweetgrass and pick it up yourself, make sure you have paperwork to verify the purchase price of the pin for GST at the border.

Brokerage isn't too bad, I only pay a flat $75.00 (at least that is how much it was a couple years ago). I'd pay the $75.00 before I would go through the hassle of going down to the border myself.

Quoted from Atomicboy:

There is no duty regardless, and it is american made, they fall under the NAFTA do they not? I'll have to look into that as well.
Can anyone clarify this?

You are correct, pinball machines are exempt, no duty. You will have to pay GST/HST when you bring it across the border. I don't know whether or not you will have to pay state tax on top of that.

#1307 4 years ago
Quoted from libtech:

You may have to pay duty on the hobbit, since its made in australia! Nafta or whatever is only for can/us made goods no?

In my understanding (not a customs expert/lawyer), even if it was made in Australia, you would not have to pay duty. Pinball machines fall under tariff code 9504.30.0019 (coin operated games, other). They are duty free from MFN (most favored nations). Australia (and UK for that matter for Heighway supporters) are most favored nations, so there should never be any duty.

Quoted from robbiedoo:

I've purchased from him - as long as you know going in that he's a business, and some (many) his machines are in players condition, then you're fine.
Bob's actually a really nice guy, and if you hate what you end up with he'll let you come back and swap for something else.
As long as you're educated about what to expect & what you're getting, and you can deal with paying more because he's a business and not a hobbyist, I would say you're fine dealing with him (which seems to be the general consensus!)

Bob is a really nice guy, I just wish he wouldn't misrepresent the quality of his machines in ads and on the phone. I don't know if he understands much of what he wants to sell at high end prices is low end player quality or not, but if he doesn't he should educate himself, and if he does he should just tell it like it is (and price it accordingly).

Quoted from pingod:

Tspp on kijiji,not mine.
I played it today,no errors works 100%.
Reall dirty playfield,original owner with receipt.
Really nice cabinet.

Interesting. If it was two months ago, or maybe two months from now I would definitely go take a look.

#1889 4 years ago
Quoted from pinballophobe:

What do u think it's worth? I'm semi interested but I have to admit. The new games with leds and color changing leds makes it hard for me to purchase older machines

Quoted from CodeMonkey:

As far as new games go, none have the rules and depth of TSPP. Add the exchange rate going down the drain this week and NIB prices will continue to climb.
If you like the theme + gameplay of the table it's a great buy.

I think it is an okay price myself (haven't seen the machine, but from what pingod described, no leds, no mods, probably needs a flipper rebuild, rubber kit and elbow grease). Nice HUO examples with mods/leds seem to go for around the $4500 US price range. Exchange rate, not having to ship and and no tax make it a reasonable deal, but not a steal imo.

#1899 4 years ago
Quoted from BC_Gambit:

We generally agreee, but I am not sure how a HOU game with less than 4K plays is going to "need" a flipper rebuild (I guess it depends on the definition of rebuild, MAYBE new coil sleeves?).
Even a long playing game like TSPP
Probably just needs a cleanup...

Just a guess given the age of the machine and lack of maintenance, why I said "probably". I could be wrong. It has happened at least once before

Anyone interested in a trading for a Tron Pro? 3D translite, screen printed cab. Not HUO but looks it. All the usual mods (light cycles, lighted recognizer, flynn sign, eli light fiber kit, arcade mod, premium cointaker LEDs, plastic protectors, cliffy, ramp protectors). Also has black mirror blades installed and the tron girls translite.

Prefer local trade for now, looking for TWD LE or Premium, but am open to others in my wishlist.

PM if interested.

About four years ago our local "retailer" (SML) told me that a ST:TNG they had would be $10,000.00 because "that is just how much they go for". I went to their show room and they also had a decent Black Hole for only $4500.00.....

Some retailers exist to rip off the ignorant, they don't get my business even if it is for a box of bulbs.

#2574 4 years ago
Quoted from hollywood:

Question:
Does recent Canadian dollar affect my sale price? If I can get 2700$ US for my SWDE (for example), does that mean it's worth roughly 3300$ Canadian?
Just asking as I am looking at selling SWDE, IJ, JP, and LOTR..... Trying to determine fair asking prices. I have a couple of offers from the U.S., just want to offer them in Canada as well.
Thanks

Depends on who you ask. Buyers will say no, sellers yes

More seriously, it depends on the pin. On an older used pin I'd probably give Canadians a break. and not do a straight dollar to dollar, just to help the local collector community. On newer more expensive pins, where the difference is in the thousands I still might give a bit of a discount, but the change in CDN/US would definitely impact what I would list it for.

To be fair, pingod linked a marketplace ad on his, you can go there to see the price. As far as whether or not a price should always be posted, <shrug>. I think it is nice idea, saves people from having to PM just to find out the price but doesn't really bother me if people don't.

Quoted from blowback1976:

B&E Electronics, and Active would be your best bet.

If no luck there, can order from digikey.ca. Haven't used them in a couple of years so not sure if the same, but I remember the selection being good and the shipping being cheap (and fast).

#3571 3 years ago

Its my STLE for sale. Never posted it here because I knew it would cause and didn't want to have to deal with price police. Since it has come up anyway:

Not making any apologies on the price. It is approx $7900 US, and I am negotiable. I also make no apologies for selling in US equvalent values. When I need to buy a new machine I will probably have to pay US prices, either for a new machine or to get the exact one I want. I'm not going to eat the exchange rate on purchase, and then ignore it when selling. I know that's what some Canadian buyers seem to want these days, and more power to them if they can find people willing to do that.

In the meantime, I am willing to accept trades. If someone wants to buy a NIB GotLE and trade me, I will do that. They are pretty close to equivalent in US dollar values. Also willing to trade for a TWD LE or a Premium plus cash.

#3575 3 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

That price on Kijiji is a rip off. A nice HUO STLE sold on Kijiji here not too long ago for $7500.

As I mentioned above, it is mine. I feel I have priced it reasonably. STLE seems to be listing for around $8000.00 US here and on Mr. Pinball. Those are my comparables, so I think I am in the ballpark. Sorry you don't think it is worth it. But don't imply I am trying to rip anyone off. If someone doesn't want to buy it, they don't have to. If they can find one somewhere cheaper, then they should buy it.

Imo, anyone who sells a STLE at $7500.00 CDN in this market is either doing a buddy deal, is a saint, or a freaking idiot. Whoever bought it got a fantastic deal. If dollar was still at par I still wouldn't be selling it at that amount.

#3579 3 years ago
Quoted from SuperPinball:

It's your machine and I sincerely hope you get what you want for it. The thing is with selling pins, you can be astronomically high on a price for 99.9% of the people looking to buy, but all you need is one guy to pull the trigger. Hope you find your trigger puller. GLWS.

True. I don't see the point of a Tron LE and wouldn't pay close to what people are asking for them. To each their own.

#3582 3 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

That's fine if it's yours, but if you want to come out and disclose it then you will have to put up with hearing about how crazy the price is. Now that being said, it is an absolute ridiculous price in this province because as stated above they usually go for $8000 out here, I know of at least three that went at that price recently.

Yeah, in hindsight I should've kept my mouth shut. I find I like Pinside a lot better when I don't get involved in any sort of discussion, but as someone else posted about it I thought I would respond (its all your fault Dan ). I have anecdotal evidence that one went in Alberta for about $10k recently. Prices are generally higher out west given the lower supply. I guess I will find out.

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

A better way to phrase it would have been "taking advantage of the American dollar" which anyone would do I suppose.

I don't see it as taking advantage of it. It is just the market now. Tron LEs used to sell for 4k new. Are people selling them for 11k "taking advantage of the fact it is popular"? My plan is to probably buy a NIB GoT Premium with the proceeds. I don't think anyone is going to sell me one for 6500 CDN so I gotta do what I gotta do. If the dollar suddenly changes 15% or so, so will my price. Anyone who doesn't see that the change in dollar hasn't impacted the market is burying their heads in the sand imo. Personally I would rather do a trade, then the whole dollar thing doesn't matter too much anymore. If anyone wants to swap a TWD LE for it let me know.

#3583 3 years ago

On the good news side, the TSPP I had on Kijiji sold in less than 24 hours to a really nice couple who are just starting to build their pin collection. Poor bastards have no idea how fast they can multiply

#3597 3 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

You make a good point here. I guess I just can't rap my head around a $10,500 STLE because out here the going rate seems to be $8000 even with the bad dollar. Sorry for the rant it really wasn't your price that set me off, it was the price pumping that did. I hope you get your $10,500 and your GOT premium.

No worries, and thanks.

Quoted from pingod:

Sorry Paul
The last STLE that sold in Edmonton went for 10,000.00 you are not to far off that price.
I'm sure if your game was in the US,it would be gone already.
Higher priced games are taking longer to sell as well.

lol, thanks Dan. Just giving you a hard time. I figure if it doesn't sell in the next couple weeks then no harm, I will just keep it. Still really like the game, just trying to move the ones I play the least to make room and cash for something else.

#3611 3 years ago
Quoted from libtech:

Damn he didnt even post his machine here.. paul is a good guy, let him sell his machine

Thanks Dustin! I am a good guy..

Quoted from str8cash:

Hey Paul I wish you never replied to all this price policing garbage.

Yeah, sorry. To help get it slightly back on track, if STLE doesn't move I will probably be putting my HUO LOTR up instead. Will post more details if it gets to that.

Starburst is the only stern distributor.

Nitro gets their games from Starburst.

Yep. My understanding is that Starburst is the only Stern distributor, all other retailers in Canada have to buy through Starburst. I hope this changes, might result in some lower prices.

Quoted from pinchamp:

Thanks for the kind comments! Now I don't want to sell it again - lol. I purchased it from another collector. I believe the decals and topper are all original but perhaps they were done before I purchased so I really don't know for sure.

Why don't you just store it at my house. I will keep it nice and safe for you in case you want it back later

Quoted from EvanDickson:

2800 USD is almost exactly 3700 CAD as of this minute. 1 USD is worth 1.32 CAD. 1 CAD is worth 0.76 USD. Percentages are relative, depending which way you are converting.

And, you won't even be getting that unless you have a USD account or a no fee credit card or something else. Banks and exchange institutions usually tack on at least 2 cents on top of that. TDs rate is 1.3429 right now, where the "posted" rate is 1.32.

#4411 3 years ago
Quoted from shaub:

What is the going rate for a TSPP in Canada these days?

I sold a super nice HUO TSPP five months ago for $5800CDN to someone locally. I originally got it from libtech (thanks!), threw some mods, protectors, color matched LEDs, played it for a few months and decided it just wasn't for me. At that $5800 price there was probably $500-600.00 worth of mods in it.

There are two HUOs in the Pinside archive showing sold this year for $4500.00USD (and possibly less), which is around the $5800.00CDN mark (not including shipping, etc of course).

If I was in the market for another one I wouldn't go over $6k, and to pay that it would have to be super nice with some nice mods.

I haven't tried the Titans, but between the pinball life "perfect play" and superbands, I like the perfect play ones more. I've got a mix between the two on my machines right now, planning on buying more of the perfect play.

Quoted from TwilightZone:

What's a HUO LOTR worth in today's insane market? The game is absolutely mint, has been well cared for, and plays like a boss. It has has cabinet protectors so no wear on the cabinet. Literally looks brand new.

Nice, stock HUO I would say around $5500-5600USD, so 7500 CDN or so? That's just from viewing current LOTR ads and recent market history. A lot will depend on demand in the area though, that could swing a few hundred in one direction or the other. I keep debating putting mine up for sale, then I play it, and decide not to. Such a fun game even though it can get long.

#6262 2 years ago
Quoted from Maken:

Most games for sale in Canada factor in the taxes that you would have to pay to import as well. While 5600 USD is about 7500 CAD... it's more like 8500 after the extra 13%.
I don't like it, but that's the way it's been since the dollar tanked.

Really? I get that it is unavoidable if buying from a retailer, but local pinheads buying/selling that way? One of the big benefits of buying locally is not having to pay shipping and tax, someone starts adding that on to their price and I will just bring it up from the States.

#6264 2 years ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

Thats because you alberta folks have been pampered with a 5% provincial tax while the rest of the country as moved into double digit taxing. No worries your time will come. Im sure you wouldnt be singing the same tune if you would lose an extra 8% because of taxes. Do the math.....its scary. Going to the states also factor, fuel, time, food etc.. Just taxes alone on a 4300US pin in ontario will add $754 in tax plus exchange rate fees. Where as you guys pay about $290.

lol, maybe. I will cross that bridge if/when Alberta introduces a PST. People can price their pins for whatever they want and justify it however they want. My point is, if someone is pricing their pin at or above US prices already, and then they decide to add the tax on top of it, then buying locally becomes less attractive and I would probably just buy one from the States, and definitely avoid bringing one in from Eastern Canada.

Just put my HUO LOTR up on Kijiji. Not interested in shipping or trades at this time.

#6407 2 years ago
Quoted from pingod:

I don't know,that 1979 Kiss might be a better deal,lol

No one can beat that Kiss deal.

#6413 2 years ago

LOTR is still available. Due to some concern/questions around the mods, and to note a cosmetic issue I forgot about, I have updated the Kijiji ad.

#6416 2 years ago

Yep, sweet mod. Some people just don't see the value though, to each their own. Part of me hopes someone buys the machine and doesn't want it so I can keep it if I ever get another LOTR in the future

#6419 2 years ago

Looks like the LOTR is sold, thanks everyone for your interest.

#6452 2 years ago

Game is home, set-up, looking great and playing even better. Thanks to Paul for a super easy transaction!

Quoted from algrande:

I have new Roman/PDI glass for sale in Calgary for pickup. $300 cdn all in. Regular only, no wide.

I'd get one, but then I would want to put them on all my pins. Then my f'ing cats would jump up on the pins and scratch my expensive glass. Then I would be sad. I think I will stick with regular glass for now.

Thinking of trading one or both of my Metallica Monsters Premium and AC/DC 'Luci' Premium. Had them both for almost 3 years, just looking for a change. Both are HUO in pristine condition with me as first and only owner. Some nice mods on both (shakers, color dmds, etc.). Metallica is the "Dirty Donny" edition with signed translite and DD painted Snake, Hammer, Sparky. Can provide full details to anyone interested.

Looking to trade for (+/- cash depending) for a WMS IJ, HS2 Getaway, maybe a GoT Pre/LE, Mustang Pre/LE, POTC. Not looking for project machines. Am willing to ship for the right deal but would prefer local deals.

PM me if interested.

Thanks!

I like it but i really think im going to like Pirates more...but deadpool might come along and screw those plans up

I am excited about Deadpool, one of the only rumored upcoming ones I am interested in. Beatles maybe, if it ends up being amazing.

Deadpool would've been an automatic based on theme alone not too long ago but I am at the point now where a pin has have the trifecta of theme, rules and gameplay for me to even consider NIB. Bad CDN dollar and ever increasing pin prices has made it too easy to take a bath on buying NIB these days.

Quoted from yellowghost:

suppose I find it annoying when some sellers add the price of shipping and duty on top of the asking price. How can those costs effect the value of a product that is already INSIDE the country, presumably since the 90's. The taxes and shipping were paid for long time ago by somebody else unless the seller was the original owner. Most cases not..and the machine was bought dirt cheap when operators started unloading them. Look at it this way...the guy at the 7-11 wouldnt make very much money if he was selling cans of coke for 20 dollars a piece because he reckoned it would cost the customer 25 dollars to drive to the closest bordertown to get one. Just saying.

I usually buy pins out of the States myself, been buying NIB mainly. When I go to sell, I am not going to eat the GST and shipping costs I had to spend to get the pin up here just so a fellow Canadian can get a break. I don't try to get it all back, but I am looking for some of it, how much depends on how long I had the machine here. I use money I get from selling pins to buy other pins. Not looking to make a profit, but trying to keep costs under control so I can keep enjoying the hobby the way I like. I've had to defend my pricing a couple of times, and it sucks.

Price Policing sucks in general and I wish we could keep it out of this thread. Pingod is a great guy, an asset to the pin community, especially here in Calgary. You will not find another guy who is more willing to help out another pinhead and pinball in general. If his machine is priced higher than you would like, don't buy. Don't come in here and slag on someone because their price isn't to your liking. I am sure his Congo (haven't seen it) is nicer than 90% of them out there and is priced accordingly.

Quoted from Maken:

People are allowed to post their opinions on internet forums, whether others like it or not is irrelevant.

Yes? I am allowed to fart in public too, whether others like it or not is irrelevant. I try not to do it around others though, just to be polite.

#10094 8 months ago
Quoted from Maken:

Farting in public is not subjectively offensive like price policing, so that's not a great analogy.

It was funny though. At least I thought so. My sense of humor can be off. Or you might not have one. Not sure which is which.

PS-> I Googled it, and farting IS subjectively offensive! Hah!

#10096 8 months ago

To get back on topic, I am looking for a GoT Premium (wish I had the cash to buy Aeonblack's when it was for sale), or a nice WMS IJ (Pingod won't sell me his even after I said nice things about him ). Please PM if you have something, would prefer within driving distance of Calgary.

#10107 8 months ago
Quoted from Londonpinball:

Please tell me if it’s a good price or if you think it’s high.
If your new, who do u ask ?
If your new, how would I know past sales are available?
This is still a for sales forum?

The info in this thread is a very poor indicator of what you should pay for a pin. At best it will tell you what was being asked for for a pin at some point in time. The market changes fast. Most of the price policing people do is based off of their own experiences a year ago, or what some beater sold for to some friend of theirs that lives across the country (or in another country). Monitor the sales that go on in your area, keep in touch with other local pinheads, and decide yourself how much you would spend for a particular title and go from there.

There is a whole sub forum dedicated to buying and selling advice where you can ask Pinside in general what they think a price should be, but take it with a grain of salt. If there are 10 examples of one title sellling in California and one near you, the price in California is meaningless unless you want to ship and the seller is willing to.

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

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.

From market history here, 1500-2000 USD for very nice ones. As far as "totally shopped", take that with a HUGE grain of salt. I have seen "shopped by an actual shop" machines in pretty bad condition. Get hi-res pics of the playfield, the cabinet, underside, anything that can help you determine condition (if not possible to see in person) and go from there.

#10111 8 months ago
Quoted from Graysonsdad:

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

Don't know, haven't been in the market for one, maybe someone else can chime in. Is it worth over 3k to you personally? I think I have seen some on Kijiji this year for around $2500, but no idea of condition. Have you tried asking on the Pinball Revolution website/forums? Lots of Eastern collectors on there.

I remember seeing the getaway for 3k 2 years back. Prices change fast.

So does the exchange rate

Quoted from Meegis:

Ive done many long distance deals and have no qualms shipping games; but it's always been within Canada. Only usa games I've purchased we're drive able and I paid cash on pickup.

What about games too far to drive for? What do you guys do for payment? Just curious as I can't seem to find what I'm looking for north of the border.

Any advice appreciated

Not much difference from dealing long distance in Canada and how you would pay for that, just cannot really do interac e-transfer. Payment wise I have sent a bank draft, done bank to bank wire transfer, did Paypal for one but that was because it was off of ebay. Other difference would be you need a customs broker to handle the HST at the border unless you are just going to get it shipped US side and pick it up yourself.

Quoted from Halfwasted:

I am located in northern Ontario and looking to buy my first NIB game. Which distributor should I go through, Player one or Nitro? Or does it matter?

It matters. Nitro all the way. Why? They are all and only about pinball. They are at the shows, at the reveals and provide major support to the community. Add on top of that the quality of the customer service and that Tommy is one of the nicest guys out there and it becomes a no brainer, at least out here in the West.

Thinking of moving my AD/DC Luci. Original run, not vault. Main differences from vault are wooden back box vs metal, lower play field window is not held in with screws. Mods include:

- Cliffys
- Plastic protectors
- Red translucent light up apron kit.
- Pinbits red lighting bolt flashers
- Speaker light kit with inserts
- Shaker
- Color DMD

Original owner, unboxed and never moved, in excellent condition. Not looking to ship at the moment. $8800 CAD without Color DMD, $9300 with. Looking to free up some pinball cash so not considering trades right now. Will have pics avail by the weekend upon request.

Luci is off the market. Priced it for a quick sale, nothing materialized. Don't want to deal with selling anything while the weather is nice, will probably re-post after summer.

Quoted from Rob_G:

I thought about selling my Luci too, but then I think ACDC in general is a harder game to sell. I would have priced mine about $9000 with the colordmd.

Rob

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.

Hey crew, I need to free up some cash so I will be putting up my xmen LE shortly $6900 firm. Very nice huo example. Lmk if you’re interested.

Underrated game imo. Had mine since launch and still really enjoy it. Also looks awesome with a ColorDMD. Good luck with the sale.

If picking up a used machine from the US are there issues with crossing back into Canada?

You will have to pay HST/GST unless you get a relaxed border guy.
