There's nothing to work out. Keep the chat fun light hearted and everything is fine. Repeatedly calling me a flipper and I will take it to heart. With lyonsden I went stright to him. Pled my case and said lets keep this out of the chat room. He put pms together of mine not showing the accurate build up. Then after he said lets chill out... pm me another posting calling me a flipr? Thats why his post is in quotes not screen shots.

I don't think the issue here is whether or not Drag is a nice guy or not, its obviously the fact that he's trying to corner the AZ pinball flipping market. Which is going to piss off other collectors and enthusiasts in your area, and drive prices up beyond affordability to the average guy. Drag can deny it all day long, but when you're bragging that you basically spend 24-7 stalking classified sites, and you're buying machines that you already have... Not to mention buying every game that comes for sale in an "affordable" price range in AZ and then reselling them soon after for a profit, you're a flipper, and how can you be surprised at the backlash you receive from other pinheads in your market who never get a shot at any of the deals?? I personally am not sweating this, but I definitely do not bother inquiring on any pins for sale in AZ anymore, and as I have said before, i'm just thankful Drag doesn't live in Vegas.

As far as the Salty comments go. I find it crossing a line when.

1. The ad where I bought a game in Jan is linked to my sales ad.

2. Repetitive "gets lucky" is I heard on a weekly basis.

3. 4 times in the last month Im told theres a bid on a game Im buying/bought/pending agreement or at there house. T2 Sof FG and this morning with the HS2. To be clear.

If the glove are off fine everyone for themself he with the most money gets the pin.

lol, funny... Still clueless as to why these things are happening... Let me enlighten you... You dropped the gloves first dude, you have proven yourself a threat, and people are fighting back... And good for them! I had a similar thing happening here with the infamous "Fullerton Flipper" coming to Vegas and dragging the already scarce supply of pins back to CA... He found out from some mutual contacts that I was pissed, armed, and looking for him... He stopped showing up here!

Really over the line , nope and it was once.

Let's be clear I had an appointment to see this Flash Gordon before you, and you came down and took it .

#657 2 years ago

Holy shit armed? You guys in Vegas don't mess around. The thrill of the hunt just got bumped up a bit.

#659 2 years ago

Just to be clear. The IJ in Scotsdale is a prime example or this bid bs. The day it was listed someone thats posted in this very thread ( confirmed my email ) made a 1k offer over 5k asking price.

2 of my close friend's both received emails stating this not to mention Dino. ( Dino isn't who to me the offeree) Now seller missed his shot to sell the game. Sour apple buyer that f'd everyone on the asking price killed all shots for the pin to be bought/sold.

Someone local missed a shot to make a trip to Scottsdale and look at a player shape IJ ( per pinsiders earlier post) and make a FAIR offer 4k maybe. Now the guy cant sell the game hes stuck thinking 6k must be a deal and it will sit for ever.

If this makes anyone els upset over missing the ij at 5k. Think about the dude that might just need the cash now . Its out om record its a beater with fade and pf issues and still thinks its worth more than it is.

Chew on that the next time you deside to offer up to snag a deal. The person your pissd at ME isn't affected by missing the game but someone els innocence to all this pinside BS could be.

#660 2 years ago

Does know one see the excitement about getting a game before Drag or possibly getting shot while loading a pin in Vegas. Man at least you can come play at his house and he even offered for free play on location. So at least he is using all that profit for good. Those other guys are pure evil. And would never invite you to play their games or pay for shit.

Online gangsters. I buy tons of pins. Some keep some sell some trade and thats just how it is. Getting sore over guys playing the game beter than you seems absurd.

I'm not playing the game, i'm not a flipper, i'm a enthusiast/collector with an average income/budget. I only buy games for my personal collection. I typically buy games in distress and enjoy restoring them to glory and KEEPING them. The closest i'll ever come to flipping is the SWE1 that I got for free from a friend and am currently restoring... I have no interest in it for my collection, but i'm saving it from the landfill and I will sell or trade it when its done.

#664 2 years ago

The getting sore wasn't meant for you. Just the first part which I took as I guess you did in good funny since your not buying to resale.

Dude, Arizona is constitutional conceal carry. I think one would be insane to conduct a large cash transaction, such as a pinball purchase/sale, without taking advantage of that.

#666 2 years ago

You guys have drive through liquor stores too. AZ is the shit.

Noted. And I have no issue with you personally, just confused at how you don't seem to understand why people are frustrated with you and lashing out.

Frustrate over someone beating others to a CL pinball sale. Come on really

I posted all of the PMs -- exactly as in my record. If I could upload a screen shot to this thread I would. You went on a strange rant, I told you to chill. You went on more of a rant. I told you to chill some more. You ranted again and I posted it to the thread. If you flip games, you flip games. Just be a man and own it. Nothing wrong with flipping.

Love this! You admit to buying games cheap and then sell them at a higher price soon thereafter, and then get bent out of shape when called a flipper. If you come to this thread, brag about getting deals and then list those games on pinside at a higher price, people easily notice it. Especially the locals who are checking out what is for sale locally.

You betcha! Hence my confusion about your confusion! I suspect that like me, most of the people who are angry, are people with jobs, and families and "lives". They don't stand a chance at these opportunities against a guy who stays parked on CL, OfferUp, etc 24-7 with his truck keys in his hand... a very tilted playfield! (hehe, pun intended)

#672 2 years ago

Maybe we should all just meet over at the cannabis club ?

#673 2 years ago

With or without heaters?

In Flagstaff 20 years ago we had a combination drive through liquor store and gun shop. Now that is convenience! Could still be there ...

#675 2 years ago

Back in the day I went to a hippy micro brew outside Phoenix that would bottle their beer with a pepper. And you guys said f the time change shit. What's not to like????

#676 2 years ago

And Ammo.
One stop shop.
Right by the train crossing .

#677 2 years ago

I also loved on the way to Flagstaff there are dinosaurs with people in their mouth along the highway.

#678 2 years ago

I would move but the last thing AZ needs is more CA douche bags.

#679 2 years ago

Hey John Soares private Pm me if you see this please.

#680 2 years ago

'Scared Stiff' is now spoken for (with a deposit, pending final payment). I still have a 'Walking Dead Premium' in fantastic condition with Cointaker 'Red Tremor' shaker motor, protectors, AND I just got some 'Bladeskins' (the nice mirrored ones that are $180) that I'm adding today. $6,500, $6,900 with ColorDMD. No STDM problems with THIS one. She's 'dialed in' and bad-ass.

Assuming it was the 2 Playboy pins, I saw that about 20 minutes after it was listed but for some reason I couldn't talk my wife into driving to the absolute worst part of Phoenix at 3 in the morning on a Saturday night to steal that lady's ex boyfriend's Pinball machines.

I guess she doesn't like being an evening news Craigslist murder story......

#694 2 years ago

Is it wrong to hope someone went for the Playboy pins and streamed the whole thing live? You know, someone other than me, of course...

Whats going to be for sale at Zapcon? Looking to pick up new blood.

#696 2 years ago

My Banzai Run may be available

#697 2 years ago

Who's all going to Zapcon this year and are you taking any games? This will be my second year attending and I'll be bringing my TSPP.

Perhaps the better question is, how long will it take all the Zapcon pins that are up for sale to be spoken for

#699 2 years ago

The guy with the IJ wrote me back and sent me a pic of the machine that confirms Jarbyjibbo's comments. The cabinet is almost white. He's back down to $5k though.
