Quoted from flashinstinct:
Yes I did the touch ups where the slam ramp and the pop bumper white where all creased. You can take a look at this thread for a few more pictures of the process. (first pic on that thread is a beofre and after shot).
I just finished touching up a Fish Tales. And Next up I will dismantle my WCS and fix all the outholes, touch up the playfield and then clearcoat that one too.
Nice how did you fill those holes amazing work.
So, number one rule: nobody wants to deal with an asshole. Be polite, be nice, be brief,ask the questions you have, and let the seller know if you're going to buy or not. Don't air your dirty laundry out in public, because the people who have been around here longer than you will almost always be favoured by the rest of us, simply because we know them. Spencer wasn't being rude, he was just pointing out that you are probably a tire kicker. I would make the same assumption. Most of us probably would. I get that you're looking for the best deal you can get on a great pin that you'll love, the first pin is a big deal and is a lot of money to plunk down, but understand that you're new to this and don't know what it's like from anyone who's been around a while's end.
Don't be offended, stick around, the canadian pin community needs more enthusiasts.
Well put if only everyone knew the rules it wouldn't be so much work to sell a pin. With that said I'm thinking about putting my STTNG up for trade or sale. Hoping to get 6000$, but new to the pin community don't Know if that is reasonable.
Sorry at work right now but I will put up more pic when I get home. As for extras. Above Playfield fully led, few leds in head, news roms installed, tri coloured plasma ball, green Playfield mod, coloured dmd. Also fully cliffy here is a before and after of the catapult. Only pic I have on me.
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.
No offence taken and ya I bought it in the boom. And It's still a awesome game. Won't be sorry if it don't sell may be if it does. But can't get a different game unless I sell one.
Quoted from freezie:
Got hurt playing hockey then blew it out taking an ancient furnace out of a basement .been working right through the pain , surgery booked for DEC 30th. So no sledding or moving heavy machines around this winter .
Sounds like a knee injury. If so that sucks i know. Best of luck man.
Quoted from misfitdart:
Stay away from Bob.
I have bought 3 pins of bob in red deer nice guy has a lot of pins. Hes been in the arcade business for a long time. But his prices are high his pins need a shopping out all of them. So if you go to bob or any business make sure you never want to resell you will lose your shirt.
Quoted from Pauz21:
Thanks out to Smoke Dog. In Saskatoon tonight and tomorrow for my daughter's surgery (nothing major) and thought I'd check out Sports on Tap which I'd heard lots about. I understand the games there are his. Played my first ever MM. Awesome! I also play a Metalica for the first time... My reaction was Meh... but I didn't know what I was doing. I played my first Pirates of the Caribbean a few months ago in Disneyworld... I played his tonight. And I'm not exaggerating when I say the one in Disney World was SO DIRTY... I didn't know a moving boat existed behind that plastic shield. That thing is actually pretty cool and I really like that game. It's fun. But the show stopper for me was for sure LOTR. I suck at it but I love it. Played ALOT tonight. Thanks for passing the time! There's also an ACDC there too. Played a few games but it's one I've played a bit of before so I was more interested in playing games new to me. Great place to play in Saskatoon with games in good shape.
That said... check the switch on Balrog. When I got him to swing over it seemed like I hammered him 3 or 4 times and it never registered.
Hope the best for you and your family. Also I was there last night as well must of just miss you. Would of been nice to run into a fellow pinsider there at random. And yes smokedog line up is great and he always switching up games so when's Tron coming back man.
Quoted from smokedog:
Hopefully soon! Just trying to line up a few things.
I may be going back to 4 pins at that location. 5 is a tight squeeze there. They should ditch that Guitar Hero stand up. Just takes up precious pin room.
See you at the tourney Tuesday night!
Yes that guitar hero got to go to make room for tron that is. And yes will be there Tuesday night.
Quoted from Rob_G:
I need help! I'm picking up an IM in 2 weeks and my back is giving me A LOT of grief lately. I need help to move the game in the house and take it to the basement. The head has to come off for this to happen as well. Actually, I don't think I can do any lifting at all. If anyone here can lend a hand it would be really appreciated. I'm in Regina.
If you were in Saskatoon I'd be in. Sorry can't help.
Looking for a AC/DC PRO playfield. If you have one or know were I can get my hands on one please let me know.
Quoted from smokedog:
Local interest story ... Made the front page!
Awesome story but to bad one of ower best is leaving. Eckrad great guy, even better pinball player.
Has anyone check out that acdc premium in regina at prairie pinball. If so what can you tell me about it. Thanks
Wish I had cash In my pin funds. Been looking for that girl a while now. Good luck with her. I didn't ask for pic's b/c it will only hurt more.
Quoted from smokedog:
I have a very nice Whitewater up for trade. No broken ramps, plastics or boulders. Very little wear (some tiny key line wear around a few raft inserts, very small wear at mine kick out). Some LED's, cliffy protectors at the VUK drop and boulders, Mantis protectors at ramp entrances. Original topper in great shape. Main cabinet is very nice with no fade, back box has some knicks and dings. Plays 100%. More detailed pics can be taken for serious inquiries. Available for testing at Sports on Tap in Saskatoon. Just looking for a trade for now, plus/minus cash as determined. A few members here have played this game and can vouch for it. Not willing to ship just yet, but willing to drive some distance for the right deal. References available upon request. PM any questions.
Titles I am looking for, in order of preference.
Walking Dead Pro or Premium
Metallica Premium (Road case preferred)
Star Trek Pro
Simpsons Pinball Party
That's my old Tftc the game is solid. And I had everything redone about 2 years ago and had way more into it then that. not saying it's worth that but do wish him luck with the sale.
Quoted from extraballingtmc:
The game I was looking at is in Saskatoon. A pinsider knows the guys and has taken several photos and a video for me. I'm pretty sure the deal is good but the actual owner of the game is not a pinsider and I don't like the feeling of being vulnerable once I send the money hoping I get a game back lol. He doesn't want to do paypal because then the seller is at risk. I do have a line on the same title in Portland,OR which is a several hour drive for me but then at least I can pay cash and pick up game in person.
Just wish there was a better way to do business but I guess there really isn't, you just have to take a calculated risk.
Just sent pm as well.
Parktown hotel would be the closest. its just across the university bridge. Don't know how the prices are tho.
AC/DC premium for sale 8400$ games includes. Original translite, alternate translite, lite shooter rod, speaker emblems, train topper, Dk mod splitter board, new dmd this one has one line out. Goodie bag still stapled inside. Or all pull all the extras 7800$ OBRO. Pm me for more info and pics. Tim
AC/DC is on hold until satday. Monday latest have a local cash deal going for two pins. Sounds like he's more interested in the other pin. So I'll update asap. Thanks for all the interest. Tim
I like extra stuff in my way on my games. And I think AC/DC premium had a lot to offer but both games lasted about the same length of time. But the permium wins by a small margine, bc of toys with that said never used the lower pf much seemed to have better games with out it.
AC/DC is sold and at its new home. Thanks (Flipmyballs) or Lindsay. Hope you enjoy both games. Tim
Quoted from FlipMyBalls:
Thanks for an amazing transaction Tim. The first but will not be the last. You know where to find me if you get the itch to come play them. Couldn't recommend Tim more to anyone who deals with him in the future. Another great pinball transaction.
I Should be thanking you. So thanks for Easiest transaction I've ever had no bull shit. Tim
Quoted from noahd42:
Hi, anyone looking to offload a game to a noobie? I'm looking for my first pin and there isn't much out there for retail (that isn't priced very high) in Edmonton or on kijiji here.
I've looked over playmore, Sml which is closed here now and western coin vending a bit.
I tend to like the early 90s Williams games like Indy or T2. For newer Sterns I have played mostly X-men, Star Trek, game of thrones and ghostbusters.
Good deal on a f-14 in Alberta on kijiji.
I thought it was priced very close to fair. If I had the space time o ya and cash. I would have bought it to make one good one and one Frankenstein. He must have 2000$ in new parts and time IMO.
Up for trade AS pro cliffys, shaker, coloured plastic protectors. Under 800 plays. Let me know if interested.
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:
I've dealt with Mitch before. He's actually a pretty cool metal head and all around good guy.
And I know where the games went so he is right a local collector picked them up and they didn't use pinside.
But I also couldn't care less if you meet me you know that didn't mean any disrespect with my up vote thought it was funny ass shit. Cheers everyone.
Must be your add Ive seen lots for sale in your area I’m sure you will find one
Quoted from Indusguys:
Yes I spoke with him as well, what red flags came up for you?
I’ve played this game its the nices FT I’ve seen. Although it was a while ago I played it and I wasn’t there to buy it so I didn’t look it over very well. I could go there possibly if someone wants me to go check it out.
We also like our RZ it is totally different. But I have thought of selling it. But not for those prices. I think 7500$ is more then fair. IMO
Wow pretty good deal on 8 pin in bc right now on Kijiji. Good luck to who pick that up.
Quoted from BC_Gambit:
I saw that; given most of the games seem to need a bit of work, I am not sure this is a GREAT deal, but it is an interesting one.
Not sure if I am undervaluing the games, but:
5K for a fishtales?
2K for an "okay" pinbot
1.5K for a silverball mania with lots of touchups?
1.5K for a ? working Alien Poker?
1K for a hot tip with a "custom" repainted cabinet and MPU issues?
Then the last $500 gets you 3 project EM's?
Not a lot of money in it to fix the games up and move them on, unless I am way off on my prices here...
But an interesting project for a hobbyist who loves fixing things and somehow has room for 8 games?
I think you should get a little more for that pinbot, and the alien poker but once you separated it like that still not much room for fixing.
I checked that jd out it’s not that nice. But if I had the cash to buy two of his games that day. it would of came home with me.
1 (587) 778-3211 His name is Jim he does repairs in Edmonton and sask in your home. when he’s around and I’m lazy I call him.
Thanks. Ya it did need a few things to finish it off. And Shawn was supper easy to deal with
Wow great price on this if I didn’t just get a new game I’d be all over this. Glws
Anyone know the person with the classic games for sale. on Kijiji Edmonton area thinking about getting a game from him he wants to ship it to me.
Quoted from wolffcub:
That number seems to come up as a escort service listing when looking it up. Who did you talk to? lol
His name on kijiji was Tim he said He inherited 29 pins from his uncle. Was shipped to him in 3 sea cans. He also works for a shipping company so he could ship it to me for basically for free. Prices seem fair. But he’s Not a Pinsider can’t trust sending cash to him with no one to back him.
