Just like the title says, looking to find something in Canada to save shipping/brokerage fees. Let me know what you have.


#5 6 years ago

Really open to anything at the right price. Twilight Zone, No good Gofers, Barbwire, Fish Tales and Lord of the Rings would be my top 5. That said, ive got space and id be up to adding anything interesting.

#7 6 years ago

Ive been lucky getting a few local, unadvertised. Besides that, everyone wants double what they are worth. Vex, I will send you a message..

-Should add, Id like Wizard of Oz LE as well.

#27 6 years ago
Quoted from vex:

maybe we should a fs/ft thread for canadian deals only. you know, all the hosers in one place

Excellent idea. Ive received a few pm's about a few machines for sale, one I havent responded to but strikes my interest.

Guess I should list TFTC and a few other things..

Nice Indiana Jones on kijiji Edmonton today 3400.00

Looks really nice, if I wasnt getting my TZ tomorrow I would have tried to look at that one!

#68 6 years ago

No electrical problems here.

#83 6 years ago
Quoted from violinfather:

LOTR went up for sale this morning in Alberta. $3600. Probably gone already but ad is still listed.

For Alberta, its either fake or sold already.

#84 6 years ago

Putting out feelers, possibly move :

Elvira and The Party Monsters

Teed Off

White Water

Also, a 100% mint NBA Jam 4 player arcade cabinet.

Any interest, Pm me.

Ive been playing with this guy all week. I keep replying and asking retarded questions to waste his time. I told him I usually just send my money Western Union, that really peeked his interest..lol

#125 6 years ago

Wife said Elvira is not leaving... So....

Teed off' - Cleaned/repaired/new back glass display/new gopher motor/new rubbers/new balls/flipper rebuild/assorted Leds/custom mods/Superbands/post rubbers.


White Water- Trying to get a price together, I really do like this but I want WoZ. ( Vex has first dibs, contacted me first )

NBA JAM 4 player stand up cabinet, best you will find. New buttons/switches/ new joysticks, not installed, doesnt need them. Also comes with NBA JAM Tournament Edition boards, its Jamma, easy mod to have both working in same cabinet. I'd say 9.5/10 for sure.


#129 6 years ago

Sorry guys, gotta keep her happy too!

If I end up getting a WoZ, this my change.

#130 6 years ago

Tease.. ( see the display in the first pic, it really is her game! )

#170 6 years ago

Randy and I have agreed to a deal, I will be bringing Woz home soon! Super excited and thankful to meet another great pinball collector/player in Calgary.

Cant wait to add this game to the collection!!

#172 6 years ago
Quoted from Drano:

Maybe Elvira will be getting a little crowded and need a new home?

She still says no but we have zero space and unless we can move a lessor title, something has to give... You will get first dips after I post some pics, better pics!


#176 6 years ago

Still have Teed Off ' and im willing to take $1800 now. Works 100%, new translight, rubbers, complete flipper rebuild with new coils too. New gopher motor and some LED's. Super band flippers and post rubbers and Silver Jet balls. All rubbers replaced and bulbs too. Comes with custom mods, extra palm trees and golf cart...

#182 6 years ago

Couple of pics..

Not for sale, WoZ...

The whole family loves it!

Played all night, still only 53 total plays.

Amazing game, cant wait to update it and see how much better it gets!!

#217 6 years ago
Quoted from PinsOnly:

Hey Spencer, you have had WOZ for a day now, you must be looking for your Next Pin by now!! LOL
Congrats!! Dave

Well..... lol.

We would like a witch shooter from your wife though!

#221 6 years ago
Quoted from bcrage88:

Still interested in moving my WPT even thou I took it off Kjijji too many tire kickers on there... I would do a trade + cash for a ACDC Premium... Pictures can be sent upon request...
Price is $3000 firm as that is what I have in it...

Fuck I hate Kijiji. Told several times, yeah im coming to have a look and never show up. Damn it I want to move this game and upgrade!!

#230 6 years ago
Quoted from algrande:

LOTR is sold...
Still have the IJ. Looks and plays amazing. Fixed the start mode hole, no more bounce outs!

Guess I'll have to find another game to be my first Stern!

Ive seen Al's IJ and it is really nice, someone will be very happy with it!

#241 6 years ago

Teed off is sold.....Spidey is here!

#243 6 years ago
Quoted from ls1chris:

#245 6 years ago

Looking for a Transformers LE or the #/125 Autobot version.

Would be willing to trade Elvira or White Water for the right deal.

#308 6 years ago
Quoted from Hobbypinball:

Anyone looking to trade (+cash transaction depending on trim and game) a Transformers, Tron, or x-men for a classic collector quality FT, drop me a line.

Just played this Fish Tales, beautiful game, someone will be very happy.

#377 6 years ago

James is a good guy, I got my White Water and Spiderman from him. I played the TOTAN, its really nice but the coated rails/legs are notmy thing in that color.

#390 6 years ago
Quoted from jms121:

Thanks for the nice words guys,hope me and Bigbossfan can work something out on my Arabian Nights!

No worries James, Id still love to have that Pirates!

#407 6 years ago

Does anyone here know "edited" from the Vancouver area? Goes by the handle Canuckgamer99 on here and KLOV.

He has made me an offer, that requires him sending a moving company to pick up from my house... I would like to accept, however it requires him to send me $$ Via Interact email Transfer. Since I don't know him and absolutely no offense to him, im just trying to be safe. ( ive seen some horror stories on-line )

Thanks guys,


#423 6 years ago
Quoted from Atomicboy:

I agree with the above as well, but when in doubt about what can be done with paypal/EMT/ebay whatever, why post here above calling these companies/your bank and getting the best answer possible, one they will be liable for if they are wrong?

I posted here to ask if anyone could provide a referance for the buyer, thats it. I know how E-Transfer works, ive used it myself many times and if the payment was coming from Russ, who has replied, or anther Pinsider who has posted alot or anyone else I know or have met before Id be perfectly comfortable. That said, Ive never met this person, he could be anyone. E-transfers can not be refunded but if they are sent from a hacked account, im out the money and the game.

No disrespect to the potential buyer, at all, im just doing my job to protect myself. My wifes sister was burnt for $4500 ( actually 2 because max was $3000 a day ) with an email transfer and not only did she lose the money and the product, her bank account was frozen and it took 2 years to get it re-opened and working 100%.

It doesnt hurt to ask questions..


#425 6 years ago
Quoted from generalgman:

If you are that concerned, grab a truck and take a 12 hour drive out to Vancouver and pick it up in person. I have travelled twice as far for pins.

Since Im the seller... well, since im the seller.

#428 6 years ago
Quoted from Atomicboy:

Seemed like it was the method from your first post, and again, if you confirm it's safe with the intermediary, who cares who the buyer is.
Do what you want with that.

Its not 100% safe, despite what your, or my, financial instituation may tell us....Once you have seen it first hand, you cover yourself.

2 weeks later
#474 6 years ago
Quoted from violinfather:

Once the money is in your account it is yours.

I would agree with most that it is very safe. ( especially if you know the person ) That statement is not correct though.

#476 6 years ago
Quoted from aeonblack:

Okay, no offense to anyone, but, Spencer, if it isn't a safe method to use, you need to provide some manner of explanation at the very least. Just saying (or implying) that "it's not safe" when everyone else has had great experiences with it, is not good enough.

Ill keep this simple and easy and like I said already if I knew the sender I would have no issues....

My sister inlaw, accepted a email transfer transaction from a buyer, everything was good for a week, she sent the product out and she thought, that was that.

About 10 days later she was contacted by her bank and told that the funds in her account had been frozen due to the recent email transfer she had received. She was told the sender of the money did not authorize the transfer and she didn't send it. ( basically either she was lying or her account was hacked through identity theft )

She was out the money, the product and it took forever for her account to become unfrozen.

So, it can happen and if I had a total stranger say no problem, Ill email you the money and have movers pick it up, Ill pass, thanks.

To each there own but its not for me with strangers.

#477 6 years ago

Now, if you want more info, Google it!

Lets get back to keeping this related to buying and selling pinball machines.

I recently sold my White Water and brought in a modded Transformers LE combo. Really liking the game so far!

#542 6 years ago

Seems legit but makes no sense to me why anyone would post this 2 months before they become available.

Im more interested in the 7K machine.

#543 6 years ago

double post

#545 6 years ago

Actually id prefer original and its 3k cheaper. Plus its already built.

Looks like its gone anyway.

#577 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

if you need to see pictures its on kijiji Calgary ab thank you

Which is why you still have it. Why wouldn't you post some decent pictures here, to the people that actually want to buy your games. Kijiji is a total joke, its impossible to tell scam for real now a days on most games.

Whats wrong with the Totan? You have had it listed for a long time now and $5600 seems like a great deal, heck guys from Ontario were interested in James's at $8k.

#579 6 years ago
Quoted from tmort:

IJ wide body is the heaviest pinball I have ever moved too! It is a beast!
Thumbs up on Jason being a great pin guy too. Played that ST you have and I really enjoyed it.

The 2 heaviest pins ive moved were Twilight Zone and Oz. NBA Jam was a bitch but my Sega Outrunners was just plain stupid.

#589 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

1..2..3...AL clown will and thumbs

Lol, you have some strange issues with Al. That said, I wouldn't even pay $4800 for your Totan, between your attitude and poor quality machine, im not surprised its been for sale for months. Even though you don't want to sell it.

#591 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

good but paid $6000 for a tom off al good one lol

And been offered $6500 since.

#595 6 years ago

No issues, don't believe everything you hear. Come over sometime and play it, nicest looking and smoothest playing Tom ive ever seen.

#601 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

aeon black let guess you need more picture you clown how a put u chill the fuk out you GOOF

Stop ruining a productive thread with your garbage.... Both your machines and attitude.

#609 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

thanks spencer how about you ripping james off lets talk about then then

Lol, for real? Again better get your facts straight before shooting off your mouth. Kinda hard to rip someone off in a trade when both parties agree to the deal.

#612 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

spencer why don't you fill us in then we get the truth from james later

Fill you in on what? I paid James $3700 and gave him Teed off. Not sure what your talking about.

#615 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

haha sure you did good one

Again, don't believe EVERYTHING you hear. Im sure James will be happy to confirm and like I suggested earlier, come play my Tom and you will see it has no issues. You clearly like to spread false rumors just to get people worked up.

#623 6 years ago
Quoted from goldmember:

thanks spencer how about you ripping james off lets talk about then then

To clear this up, I called James and he has no concerns or problems and said he will post this later today. End of story, move on.

I am as upfront and honest as they come, stop trying to slander me and Al with false claims.

#624 6 years ago
Quoted from mwong168:

Guys, that is really Drano playing by the way
I can't wait to stop by maybe tonight if Rob is going to be dropping off some parts at your place to try out your new CV?

Lol, that's a great pic!

#639 6 years ago
Quoted from jms121:

Yikes,well after having a chance to read through some of the last posts on here,I wanted to chime in and say I never told anyone,nor felt that Spencer ripped me off,I was fine with the deal we did,I usually am with most trade and trade with cash deals I do ,so I needed 5500.00$ out of my spiderman gave him 1800.00$ value for a nice and nice playing Teed off so that left 3700.00$ cash which I got,anyways wanted to clear the air and don't know why my name would even be brought up like that.James

Thanks James, its not your fault Stan is a total douchebag and I appreciate you confirming what I said earlier. As for him, Id get suspended/banned and much more if I actually wrote what I wanted too.

#641 6 years ago

Totan $2500. Seems you have finally realized what your garbage is worth....

Get it now before he sobers up and changes his mind.

A shout out to Tim ( Mustang ) from Red Deer! Went out of his way to get me a free piece of playfield glass for my Elvira...... Makes her look really pretty! Nothing like replacing a 25 year old glass.

Another reason this is the best hobby ive ever been involved in!

Thanks Tim!

Wow Dan, can't believe you're letting Spidey go.

Im surprised too, it will be one of the last games I sell myself. Looks real nice Dan, good luck with the sale, must be filling the space with something better!

Lol, I thought to myself, I should list Transformers when I get home... Guess I'll hold off a bit.

2 weeks later
#906 5 years ago

Im going to list my Transformers LE combo, comes with mirror blades, metallic matching flippers, Super bands and LED back box conversion. Has the Optimus interactive topper as well. Some wrinkling around the legs as normal BUT I have a complete set of new Stern cabinet decals, which are included.


Pm for pictures. Prefer not to ship if possible.

#908 5 years ago

Sold pending payment and pickup.

#910 5 years ago

Buyer backed out with excuses... Still available, would consider some trades if local but prefer cash sale.

#920 5 years ago

Price drop to $5000. Great game but 1 has to go..

DSC_0333.JPG DSC_0335.JPG DSC_0337.JPG
#921 5 years ago

Price drop to $4800. I bought this off a fellow member a few months ago for $5500 and then acquired the extra decal set at another cost. ( it really isn't needed, just nice to have )

If it doesn't sell this weekend, im going to just keep it for now I guess..

#924 5 years ago

With the upgrades I thought it was very fair, tough market recently I guess.

#930 5 years ago

Where are you guys playing the new games at?

#935 5 years ago

What is your guys thoughts on the Hobbit? Its the only one I have interest in.

#941 5 years ago
Quoted from schwarz:

Thanks for the updates Trev, I'm jealous over here.

Me too!

#955 5 years ago

It does look really good, nice work.

#967 5 years ago

All of the sudden an unbelievable buyers market has opened in Alberta. Hard to believe that one has to take such a loss to move a game now, must be all the new stuff on the way.

#970 5 years ago

Normally I would do the same but Id really like to move something for another hobby. That said, I can only go so low.

#973 5 years ago

Ok, pick up or pay in FULL tomorrow only...

Transformers LE combo #133/500

Home Use Only,Hundreds of dollars in upgrades, mirror blades, leds, Superbands, metallic flippers, lighted flipper buttons, Flipper Fidelity complete LED back box conversion, Mackee Optimus topper. Extra set of Stern cabinet decals included as well.

Sunday only, paid in FULL, pick up when ever you can. If not sold tomorrow, im keeping it. Tired of dealing with it and/or people breaking deals.


#991 5 years ago
Quoted from pingod:

So buy it then

He wont buy anything.

#993 5 years ago

Lol, lots of people like it, including myself.... The powdercoating is great, Megatron multi-ball is super cool and the sounds are fantastic. ( not including this one has mirror blades, etc, it looks great! )

I just would like to move something and when your wife likes 2 of the 6 you have, they cant go, plus the kids favorite that cant go... so its either a real nice, fully modded TZ, a collector quality, mint ToM, or Transformers.

Its as simple as that. Still waiting on the potential buyer sending a deposit at this point.

#997 5 years ago

I had a solid agreement for $4800, lines got crossed, problems occured, I wasnt able to get a deposit and I figured said buyer just wasnt really interested. So, in an attempt to move the game quickly, I dropped the price and clearly said, TODAY ONLY or im keeping it.

As of now, the game has been turned off/covered as the original customer still says they want it.

So to be clear, Violinfather, you should read the whole add before using it as leverage against another machine/member. Further to that, I will never do business with you again, so you cant buy it anyways.


#1000 5 years ago
Quoted from violinfather:

Wow you should work on your interpersonal skills. Typical warrior behind the keyboard. I will not bring up for all of Pinside how you treated me on a previous deal because I have a little more integrity than you. Regardless of your attitude good luck with your sale.

Lets review, you wasted my time, never ONCE told me to hold it, I sold it because I was tired of waiting. Then YOU called me all sorts of names. Sound about right?

#1003 5 years ago

Thanks Aeon, appreciate the positive comments. In this case he is just bitter because he was the tire kicker (and has been to many board members) and excuse maker when it came to buying my TFTC, so I sold it to someone else. Then he decided he would get angry about it.

#1048 5 years ago
Quoted from Hobbypinball:

The bubble - she be burst. At least on used games. Still there for A list games, but even there just not where it was a couple years ago. Or whatever and i'm an idiot - but something certainly has changed.
Zero offense to Twilight1 - STTNG will sit there for a while at 6. At least if will in Calgary. 2 years ago - you might have had a bidding war.

I agree, prices have dropped a lot in the last few months. I cant believe someone hasn't picked up your FishTales yet. That said, I have excellent offers on a couple of my A list games, just not sure I want to part with them.

#1058 5 years ago
Quoted from Hobbypinball:

I'm actually enjoying being down to two pins. Been playing FT more than I have for a while. Put regular flippers on it instead of lightning and is alot more enjoyable. You know cause I'm such an awesome player and all.

Lol, yeah you and me both! I didn't know you had sold a few, your collection says you still have five. I had heard you moved Oz but didn't know you sold 2 more. Im guessing you kept Creature too?

#1144 5 years ago

Still have my Transformers LE for sale, open to offers. Fully modded.

#1148 5 years ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

I feel bad for poor ol'TF. It's a great game that never got passed the initial bad rep. I owned a pro a really loved it. I hope this one finds a good home

I agree, it is actually really fun. I love the Megatron multiball.

#1152 5 years ago
Quoted from pingod:

Creech for 1000.00 on kijiji Calgary today.
Ad was real,friend got the game.

I called, emailed after 5 mins of posting, no response. Hope he can fix it up. Im guessing the $800 would be high to someone who knows what they are doing.

#1153 5 years ago
Quoted from Bigbossfan:

Damn!! Congrats to your friend!

Pending repairs, should be a good deal but who knows when the seller says it needs $800 in repairs. I would have taken the chance to though.

#1155 5 years ago
Quoted from pingod:

800.00 in repairs was parts and labor quote.
So far coil in the trough needs to be replaced.
Don't know what else yet.
He is happy with it

Hope it works out for him, will be a real nice pickup. I saw one last weekend bought from a certain guy in central Alberta that was horrible. Broken ramps, drywall screws, hologram didn't work, playfield wear at the flippers, broken plastics, head touched up with paint runs, re-import with rust, horrible.

One day Ill get one!

#1160 5 years ago

Does anyone know someone in Canada/Calgary that would do some boardwork, for a reasonable rate? Non pinball game, seems easy enough.

#1162 5 years ago

I should add for any help:

I bought a Flintstones egg laying machine for the kiddos. Nice shape, non-working. Wiring was a mess, cut/loose/missing, etc. I connected what looked to be right but its a no-go. The cabinet light comes on but nothing else happens. Board seems simple enough but I cant find any info on it on-line. The transformer also gets hot really fast if that makes any difference.

#1361 5 years ago

Anyone want a set of Lollipop decals for your Wizard of Oz, from Wozmods.com?

I may have had a few to many drinks before ordering last night! Got the shipped email this morning, whoops.

Anyway I got 2 sets coming, only want/need one. They are $19.95 plus $4 shipping. Looking for $12 shipped anywhere in Canada. ( so I can buy the Crystal ball decals I actually wanted, lol )


#1363 5 years ago

Sold, thanks Reg.

Now, onto selling TFLE again.

#1366 5 years ago

New year, new plan, going to list all my pins to pursue another passion with my family. First up...

Stern combo for sale:

TFLE loaded with mods (topper, led backbox mod, mirror blades, game has everything )

SM with lots of mods ( alt backglass, full leds, custom slingshots, topper, speaker leds, etc )

I know the TFLE is HUO, suspect the SM is as well. Both goodie bags stapled to cab. Original parts and extra's included.

Package price $10K

Will not sell SM alone right now, will sell TFLE for $4450.

-I should add, no shipping unless you arrange it. Also, my games have been seen by many Pinsiders and I take pride in maintaining and upgrading them and can provide numerous references if needed.

#1369 5 years ago
Quoted from QuickSilverShelby:

Holy Spencer, you change gears hard. You just got head long into the hobby 18 months ago and now your getting out in a big way. I give you credit, you don't do anything half-assed in life. Good luck in the new endeavors.

Well to be fair, I may have over spoken abit. I will be keeping my WOZLE and most likely TZ. Im just stuck in that place right now where my family wants to move on, they don't play the games, nor do they really like them. They want Pacman and skeeball and kids stuff. I was hoping they would take to it more but it hasn't happened. If I don't play them, they would sit for weeks and collect dust and that's just a waste when I'm sure someone else would enjoy them. I may buy a few cheaper titles if the kids enjoy them but right now, they only want JP, so we shall see...

Id prefer to sell them one at a time and see how that goes but the lack of interest in TFLE is having me think a little different.

I think I will always own at least one because I really do love the hobby but if im the only one playing them, there is no point in having 6.

Invite some friends over, I am the only only playing them in my house but I still want more.

If I only had more space.

#1377 5 years ago
Quoted from Atomicboy:

It's my sanctuary. I'm actually glad they don't play them. It's my place, there is nothing downstairs that my wife or daughters need to concern themselves with at all, so that floor is mine.
I used to wish they would play more, but honestly, I'm glad I have the retreat somedays when they all go ultrasonic on each other. F that noise.

LOL, I hear that!

Quoted from SuperPinball:

Is there any way that we can get our wives to like pinball and be cool with us buying multiple pins?

Why do you think I own Eatpm, Wozle, have massive posters/collections signed by Reese Witherspoon and Britney Spears, the Girls Next Door, etc.... and to top it off, have Barbies all over my basement? lol.

-Problem solved. Except for space!

#1393 5 years ago
Quoted from pinballophobe:

Take your phone n take a pic of all the posters then throw them out. U have successfully digitalized the media which fits onto a usb stick. Think of how much u just reclaimed. Heck make extra copies just in case something happens
There's no place like home!!!

I have no idea what your taking about. Except that you disprove of visual media being displayed??

#1595 5 years ago
Quoted from YKpinballer:

In case there's anyone out there who doesn't know Bob from Red Deer yet, I bought a CFTBL off him and had to replace basically everything on the playfield. All the plastics looked like someone had gone at the machine with a hammer. Scorch marks on the playfield and some warped parts where the ball ejects from ramps.
Plus no creature hologram. It was "Marked down" to 3200, but really should have been 2500 max. And I hate getting the machine with no hologram because I have no idea if he just took it out and sold it separately. But I'm sure it just went black and got thrown out, as is common.
He warned me it wasn't cleaned or shopped at all and the middle ramp had been glued. But literally everything needed replacing. Fortunately I bought it expecting a project machine (having heard stories of Bob) so I was happy to rescue it from him. And the game plays great so my friends and I love it.
Cabinet is in good condition so it looks great in my collection. No regrets for me, just want to give another heads up about Red Deer, make sure you see and test the machines there before buying.

I hope its not the one he had previously traded to someone else who quickly returned it. That one was a re-import and everything had rust on it. Plus there was flipper wear on the playfield, right side flipper. Cabinet wasn't bad but the head, especially the left side was horribly touched ( painted, lol ) up.

The most important thing is your happy! The one I saw, needed easy $2500-3000 worth of work and had no idea if the hologram was working or not.

Id buy from him but Id inspect it with a fine tooth comb first. I actually attempted to make a purchase of a Mrs Pacman, things started great and then he just stop replying?!? Oh well, I bought something else instead.

#1596 5 years ago
Quoted from blowback1976:

I'll post this here as well. I have a Barb Wire pinball machine available.
Looking to trade for one of the following Sega pinball machines:
Starship Troopers (working or not)
X Files (working or not)
Jurassic Park: Lost World
South Park
Independence Day
Only open to trades, not looking to sell.

I couldn't convince the guys I know with South Park or Golden Eye to sell/trade for this. I would like to have it if the price is right. If anyone can work out a trade to get it, Ill buy it from you.

#1599 5 years ago
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!)

Your quote is totally wrong. I didn't say that, I have no problem calling a spade a spade but I have no dog in this fight. Another user said that, please make the change.

#1603 5 years ago
Quoted from YKpinballer:

Yes, that is the one. I dealt with the rust by soaking the screws and nuts in CLR, replaced some that wouldn't be salvaged. new ramps plastics and rubbers. Full flipper replacement. Will be polishing the playfield and replacing Mylar in due time. Fully LED and have mikes hologram mod on the way. Ordered the ramps from Australian pinball parts so got a really good price. I would say in the end I will have $3200 in purchase price plus $1500ish in shipping and replacement parts including hologram and tv screen. That leaves me $1000 to grab a replacement playfield down the line and you'll be on target with your $2500 estimate to repair. Gives me a $5700 fully restored cftbl... A little steep but I also paid 5k for my Shadow getting it from the states with shipping and exchange etc. (great condition). So yeah he had no problem ripping me off but as I said I had a feeling it was coming and wanted a project machine for the satisfaction of fixing it anyway.

Glad your happy with it!

#1612 5 years ago

So im on a game voyage in Edmonton, out for dinner with the kids at Red Robin and they actually have an Elvira! It's a POS mind you but never thought I'd see an eatpm in a restaurant.

Quoted from Hobbypinball:

SML is the only seller I would not hesitate to trash outright in every capacity possible, have it be 100% true and accurate, and in no way feel bad about having said it. They are the worst of the worst as far as pinball goes. But I sugar coat it - ask me how I really feel.

No need for sugar coating, 100% the worst/biggest rip off store I have ever been to. Last time I was at the mall, I went in for a laugh and the sales guy gave me attitude like I couldn't afford anything. Nice customer service.

We love ours, and play ours quite a bit with friends or just the kids and I.

Soooo true, I love that about them!

Thanks! Still trying to find a space for it, the pool table occupies most of the center room. That said, I just ordered my custom board decals. Guy let me choose any 20 logos I wanted, should look really great. ( going all the way around, not just the boards on the sides )

#1651 5 years ago
Quoted from Cam:

That's awesome, sure didn't take you long to start buying mods I've been meaning to order some for mine as well, I just havent decided if I'm going to go all out with all of the on-ice, dasher, scoreboard and cabinet decals he offers too....

Yeah, I couldn't decide on that either, Seems almost too much. Im going with the boards and possibly a new center ice logo but I haven't decided what yet. Love the fact I can pick whatever logos I wanted for the boards though.

#1656 5 years ago
Quoted from YKpinballer:

So what are you thinking? McDonalds? Tim Hortons? Desjardins?

I did lots because im doing mine 360 around the whole game, not just the sides.... Fed Ex, Stern, heineken, Mustang, ESPN, Geico, Little Ceasers, Blackberry, Hockey night in Canada, Mcdonalds, Starbucks, West-jet, Cabo Wabo tequila, Tim Hortons, Stoli Vodka, Mobil 1, Jersey Jack, Jack Daniels, Steam Whistle and of coarse Hooters! lol.

I also got blue goal creases and decals for the offensive zones, Tag hueler and Heineken. Picked up the yellow trim on the bottom too, to complete the entire look.

Super excited to install these, to bad it 3-4 weeks.

Quoted from violinfather:

$7000 for the next week. If not sold then I will trade.

Considering the cost of new and exchange rate, that seems very fair. I don't see the appeal of the game but someone will get a nice deal.

#1696 5 years ago
Quoted from violinfather:

Seems hard to sell locally. Easy if I ship.
Wow I have been offered many different trade options plus cash...WOZLE, AC/DC pro, Sopranos, Stern IJ, Batman Forever, POTC and XMen LE Magneto. Need an easy to play pin as it is the only one in my man cave. It will only be played by adults so a real family friendly theme is not necessary. I like some of the trade options so I imagine the trade plus cash will be the end deal. Thanks to everyone for the offers.

If anyone in crazy enough to offer you a Wozle PLUS cash, you would be silly to not accept. Ive been offered $7500 and $8000 in the last week for my WoZ. That's money in your pocket if you sell and its a better game.

#1708 5 years ago

If it was me, id go Sopranos. I wouldnt even consider a Stern IJ and for me ac/dc has no appeal.

#1709 5 years ago
Quoted from aeonblack:

Honestly, WOZ felt kind of dull to me. Obviously, your results may vary, as pinball is kind of subjective,

Truer words have not been said. If everyone liked the same thing, it would be a boring world. For me, I cant get enough of Woz and my other machines dont get played.

#1730 5 years ago
Quoted from Triumvirat73:

It's his machine and he shouldn't be pressured to make any deal he's not 100% happy with. It's hard letting go of a title that you believe to be worth more than you're being offered for it and, at the end of the day, he has to live with his decision. He's been clear about not wanting to ship, and has stated that he knows that it limits his sale options, so that's that.
It isn't drama so much as not wanting to make a decision that he'll sorely regret down the road. And I think we've probably all made deals that we regret after-the-fact.

Please, its all drama with him. Just ask anyone who has had dealings with him. He has a fair/solid CASH offer of 7K on the table, plus numerous trade options.

I hope he accepts the trade because if he takes the cash, next week he will start another thread " got 7K what should I buy"

#1732 5 years ago
Quoted from Triumvirat73:

Oh I was unaware that this individual was an issue. I was just speaking in general terms. I wasn't trying to step on any toes.

Oh, no worries. Just try dealing with him and you'll understand. lol. The list is long and distinguished with Pinside members and trouble dealing with him.

#1946 5 years ago
Quoted from pinballophobe:

I'm leaning that way as well since the price tag will be close to $10k after tax and shipping. But at the same time the CND doesn't appear to be recovering anytime soon so any NIB LE Will be $10k. But I think GoT will be a badass pin

The market for NIB is stupid at the current exchange rate. I could never justify spending 10K on any pinball machine, no matter what the theme. The exchange rate is great for selling though, I was offered $6500 for one of mine, that's $8125 Can, hard to beat that.

#1948 5 years ago
Quoted from pinballkyle:

It makes me wonder how many new WWE pinballs are out in Canada right now. With the USD so high, it must have drastically affected sales down here.
I don't know a single owner of a WWE in BC.

I'm not sure why anyone would pay $10K for a WWE pin, when you can buy a used TWDLE, WOZLE, TZ, ToM, etc for $6000-$7000 ish. Doesn't make any sense to me.

#1950 5 years ago

Even at $7.5k it would have been a great deal compared to 10K for WWF. I actually prefer the older games myself, always seems like more is going on but even WoZ, you can pick one up for around $7k-8k and we can argue the theme sucks but just as many people think WWF sucks, so that's a wash and at current prices, WoZ is a steal compared to a stripped down Stern.

As far a pre-ordering anything, regardless of theme, your a braver man than I. I wouldn't do it a couple years ago and with the recent BS, I will never give any company, a dime with-out getting a game in return.

#1968 5 years ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

Yup, I'd rather pay NIB rather than paying the same money for a 20 year old, overpriced WMS game. I bought 3 NIB in 2013 and plan for one this year, but I'm taking a wait and see approach. WWE does not interest me and although I like TWD as a show, I'm just not sold on the game. I know nothing about GOT except it has something to do about weiners....
» YouTube video

Generally, I would agree with you but it depends on titles. They are not priced the same either, you could buy a great WMS game for $6-7k. In fact if you got lucky you might get 2 for the same price or close to, as a new in the box WWF pin. That's not even factoring Oz into the equation, at what $7-$8K used.

Im glad people still buy new in the box games, so they call sell them later to me! Especially at $10k, that's a joke.

If that BDK was here in Saskatchewan; I would have bought it already. Definitely looks like a awesome game.

Sorry, I just wasted 6 hours of my life driving to dumpster fire, Edmonton, only to find a not NEARLY as described item...... I may be a bit bitter now.

#2077 5 years ago
Quoted from robbiedoo:

Which pin was it?
Edit: if you don't mind me asking.

Hey Matt, no worries, it wasn't a pin. This is the second time in 3 months ive been bitten. The last time I brought the whole family, we stayed the night in West Ed, had some fun and in the end, the game was a POS. Thought I asked all the right questions, both times, guess not. Its a shame these people don't care if they waste others time.

#2081 5 years ago

I have a mint ToM, clear coated playfield, blades, leds, mods, topper, etc. Id be willing to trade for a nice Indiana Jones. Please let me know if interested.

Also, I have a very nice Spiderman Id be willing to move/trade for a Indy.

If nothing comes available, I will sell them and keep looking.

Elvira is also available in the right deal for Indy. Im looking to downsize to only 3 pins.

#2083 5 years ago

Yeah, I agree but I'm just trying to keep my options open.

#2094 5 years ago
Quoted from volkdrive:

You won't find a nicer Mustang for that price with our crap dollar plus the mods. And Derek babies his pins! Only checked this out once but it's probably better than NIB. Someone can get a good buy here. (I might, but I'm full and backed up on a couple projects). Sweet machine and low number LE

#2365 5 years ago
Quoted from algrande:

That was quick!

It was fairly close.

40 year old game, looks like it was made yesterday. Playfield and plastics are mint. Powers on but wont kick a ball. I needed a project. lol

#2379 5 years ago

So I bought that Ten Stars with the intention of getting a cheap unit to learn about EM's and re-theme it. I still may do it but I cant get over how nice the the playfield and plastics are in. I'm starting to wonder if ruining a 40 year old game that looks this nice is a good idea?? Granted the backglass has some chipping and crackling and the cabinet isn't fantastic but I cant get over how nice the playfield looks. Also, the coin door and side rails are very nice as well.

So before I ruin a 40 year old game, I thought I'd mention it in case anyone is interested in keeping it original. Other-wise, look out!

I need a 19" vertical for my Ms Pacman.

Quoted from woz:

Have you tried http://nitroamusements.com in Mission, BC - they repair pinball and arcade games.

I haven't yet, was hoping to get someone local, since shipping is a pain for a monitor.

Quoted from extraballingtmc:

I've had dr don recap a monitor for me before. excellent work

Im assuming he is in BC as well?

#2402 5 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

19" monitors are easy. Don't most people just replace them with LCD screens?

Yeah, that's always an option but its about $400-500 and then its not original anymore. ( which I really don't care about but a potential buyer certainly may.) Plus it doesn't look as nice, the picture is better but you lose the bezel, smoked glass cover, etc.
