Anyone selling a Space Shuttle?
That's epic! Wizard's Castle was an arcade here in Toronto that I pretty much grew up in. My dad used to take me there every weekend, and I figured it would be nostalgic and cool to have my boys grow up playing in there to (it just happens to now be relocated in our basement haha).
I'm getting an artist to put together a cool logo, and will probably have it painted on the wall.
Never grow up
Quoted from dirkdiggler:
I'm curious if Wizards Castle was a franchise or just a name that got used lots? I can remember one in Southgate mall in Edmonton and I think the arcade by fantasyland in West Edmonton mall was a wizard's castle?
Did it have the same logo as the link above?
Quoted from toasterman04:
Breaks do a mind and body good!
I found myself at a point where regardless of what new game I got, I still wanted something else a month later.
I think that's the nature of pinball and humans.
I wasn't taking enough time to appreciate what I had, because my mind had already moved on to the next thing I "needed".
I've decided now to focus on what I have, which is more than I even need to be honest. My goal is to play them thoroughly, try to put up some respectable scores, and in a few months, I'll consider getting something else in exchange for one of the games I have.
First world problems
Have a HUO Spiderman that just came out of the box a year ago and looks like it's brand new.
I'm selling it for what I paid... $7000.
It has a Cointaker shaker and I put non-ghosting Comet LEDs throughout.
I'm also open to trades (+/- cash) for the following games in only excellent condition:
Prefer local deals, but open to others.
PM if interested.
Quoted from Cam:
Everyone, he’s referring me.
Dear Sean, Damien, or wizardscastle,
Unreal, now you’ve threatened me via text to call everyone at the company I work at to tell them I ripped you off?! And now publicly saying you’re going to get the Police involved? I’ve done nothing wrong, short of not replying promptly enough for your liking.
After hounding me for WEEKS via kijiji, pinside and text. I finally agreed to ship, take many rounds of pictures. You’ve honestly been the absolute worst buyer I’ve ever dealt with on kijiji or pinside. I’ve never met a more impatient, pushy and demanding stranger. You’ve wasted way too many hours of my time.
I’m a fair and honest guy, I was never intending to keep your deposit, I’ve just been through an insanely busy week at work and home (and I warned you of that). But after the shit you’ve pulled consider it gone. I hope this turns out to be a cheap $100 lesson for you about being a nice, decent and respectful human.
If you were going to lose your nut, why not just call me like an adult?
And why do you have 2 pinside accounts?
Ps. If you really need the $100 back to help pay for the hot water tank that you used for an excuse to get out of the deal, call me.
Hahaha. This is often why I consider stepping away from this hobby, or at least the social part of it.
You've changed the price 3 times on this game trying to rope suckers it. I took the bait, stain on me
You say I hounded you, but you reply with a one liner and disappear.
I have met a lot of excellent people in this hobby, and I've done bought and sold my share of games. Everyone who knows me, knows I am completely honest and fair.
I don't change price, I don't go MIA when someone is talking to me about a game, and I don't keep a deposit because I took 10 photos for someone that ch aged his mind the next day.
Keep the money. I dodged a real bad deal here, and if it only cost me $100, I made out well.
Is there anyone in Canada that offers board repair? I have a WPC-95 MPU with some battery corrosion.
I see a guy on eBay under "tommypinball". Is that Nitro?
If anyone has any recommendations for this type of service, it would be appreciated.
