    Game of Thrones will be over 11,000.00 here,how many do you think they will sell here.
    Our dollar doesn't help.
    The last LE I bought was STLE around 8600.00 all in.
    Thats one heck of an increase

    #32 5 years ago
    Quoted from pinballophobe:

    I think the question u haveave to ask is. How many kiss Le were allotted for Canada and how many did they sell

    They had 50 at least Kiss LE,from what i was told.
    They also had 55 STLE
    I'm sure they still have Kiss LE in stock,they did the last time I checked.

    Prices are out of reach for most people wanting a new game LE or otherwise,in Canada.

    Most of the interest on my games for sale is from Americans,way better deal for them.

    #33 5 years ago
    Quoted from TBatti:

    The shipping for a few pieces of plastic are god awful rape. $55-$80. what a joke. The actually shipping from USPS is around $20. I've had 3 lb packages sent for $25. Rant done, lol.

    Group buy with others,split the shipping costs up.
    Best way to do it,or wait and order a ton of stuff at once.

    Each time I have a game restored,I order everything I can in one shot.

    #38 5 years ago
    Quoted from pinballophobe:

    I can see them having a few kiss LE kicking around still after 4 months. But I think that's the case with all LE games that come to Canada regardless of the price.
    I think the person who can spend 10k on a nib machine. If they hummed and hawed over it. Can extend that budget to 11-12k

    It's not a matter of can they buy it,will they buy it.
    Same thing goes for all the games being made right now.
    I passed on Kiss LE,because the price is nuts now,I'm sure there are a lot more guys out there thinking the same thing.
    Plus premium prices are just as crazy.
    STLE sold out fairly quick here in Canada,Kiss LE not so much.

    Until the canuck buck rebounds some,I might be out on a lot of new games.

    #39 5 years ago
    Quoted from TBatti:

    Good idea. Maybe start a thread re Group buy in Calgary for "enter site name"

    I already have a bunch of friends,we ask each other whats needed when we are thinking of placing an order.
    Same thing goes for ordering Invisaglas,buy in bulk.

    Right now I am not looking to order anything,might be soon with my next restore.
    I can let you know if I do.

    Smack talking early for next years rematch

    #245 4 years ago

    We were up 4 points before the last two head to head matches.
    You needed to win both to have a playoff.

    Thankfully we won
    Good time,look forward to the rematch in Calgary.

    Bring it Gilles

    Quoted from bcrage88:

    Ha, considering the beautiful City of Calgary really won on a technicality in that one of our players played out of turn and cost us that precious point, I would say that we handed you the Alberta Challenge Cup. Either way we will be out for revenge in July when we try to reclaim it back and beat you on your home turf... Love the rivalry lol...

    Quoted from str8cash:

    Has anyone had a good buying experience with Bob at tps? I'm just looking for one good reference and haven't found any.

    Bob is a nice guy,but most of his games are overpriced for what you get.
    If his tech went through it,your better off passing on the game.

    Mostly routed games needing a lot of attention.
    Still has the odd good deal though,takes a lot of nice games in on trade to.

    #677 4 years ago
    Quoted from str8cash:

    Poll Question
    Someone plays your game (for the 1st time) and puts up a grand champ score?
    A: Leave it and use it as a new benchmark?
    B: Reset high scores as soon as he leaves?

    Ban him from coming over again
    I leave them on,gives me something to shoot for.
    I usually beat them before I do a code update.

    #685 4 years ago

    Darrens not that good anyway

    He put up 2.2 billion on my GOTLE the first time he played it.
    I should ban him from playing my games,lol.

    Quoted from aeonblack:

    So, I have a bit of a qualm here that I would love some help with. When Alien ships, I have to sell a pin from my upstairs lineup to make room: Judge Dredd, Star Trek LE, Tron Pro (heavily modded) or Game Of Thrones Premium. This is mainly because I don't want to move my heavy ass widebody JD downstairs through a narrow staircase, but also because I don't want to move any of my awesome Sterns downstairs (where they wouldn't get played as much). The problem is, I love all of them. Judge Dredd seems like the contender to go, but I love the theme, artwork and the custom soundtrack I did for it with a Pinsound board. Tron I shipped up, so I will never recoup costs on that one, but It also doesn't get near the amount of play that GOT and ST get. Obviously I could do some awesome trades to change things up, but the problem is that I need to make space, and one of them simply has to go.
    What would you do?

    I just sold my STLE,so that gets my vote to go,or JD

    Quoted from blowback1976:

    It was a deal with the bar owners. The row of games is where his "big screen" is for sports. And with sports season ramping up they have to go, as that bring in more business than the pins. Unless by some miracle he can re-arrange his bar to accommodate them somewhere else, it looks like they need to go. Also the games on location are from people's collections, and not owned by the bar owner.

    The pool league starts up there in a week,they bring in another pool table.
    Their pool league is Monday thru Thursday.
    Not really time or space for us.

    The new location will see either my TWDLE,or Rob Zombie there.
    Unless TWDLE sells first.

    Sold my Ghostbusters yesterday but what is the deal with all the douchebags on kijiji? I put my ghostbusters up for $7300 including $675 worth of mods and get people giving me shit telling me they can buy it new in the box for $5000... or being called a complete asshole because I dare to sell it at a price they cant afford??? How do you guys deal with the lunacy?

    Happens all the time here to,most the time they are out of touch with the new prices. Base the price on NIB 5 years ago
    Surprised most times the low ballers are someone you know.
    I don't give them the time of day.

    Quoted from freezie:

    Is there anyone in regina that does repair work on pins ? I have a person in Weyburn that bought my Dracula and it's having issues , sound a like a simple switch issue as it's saying there's a ball missing , but I have reinjured my back and can't go look at it for him . Let me know , obviously I'm not looking for someone for free.

    We had a lost ball on our BSD on location,it got wedged under a plastic top right side.
    Still there to,just added a ball for now,really hard to get to unless you remove the ramp.
    Did the same thing,ball search until it kicked out another ball.

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    Hey I got a question about cost of game on location. Without naming the operator or location, someone is actually trying to charge $2.00 per game. Is it just me or is this fuk'n crazy? Sorry, I can't see myself paying $2 to play a game of pinball on location EVER! I like to support pinball on location when i come across it but feel that is being totally greedy. Thoughts?

    I spent over 12,000.00 on a GOTLE,probably should have had that on 2 bucks a play.
    It was 1.00 per play or 3 for 2.00 at the Trap and Gill here.
    Never ever going to see my game paid for at that rate.
    Happy to bring new games to the people,but it does cost a lot.
    They do take a bit of a beating to,had a couple of broken plastics on mine so far,cleaned it every week.
    It is home now though missed it here.

    Next game I was going to put in was Alien,but the code is to unreliable in it right now.
    Game freezes during play,drains the ball gives bonus and on to the next ball.
    Might be Dialed In LE then,again pricey game for location play.

    Serious question, how many of you are still buying NIB at these prices? How many have abandoned the idea of buying NIB? Reaching close to $9000 for a Pro is completely non-sense, especially this SW pro.

    I have a Dialed In LE coming,and a SWLE on hold.
    SW I am on the fence for,could go either way.
    I don't buy pros,always feel like something is missing in the game.
    At these prices I will be out as well from now on.
    Of course if it's a must have game for me,back in I go.

    *****Breaking news:
    The war for pinball territory in Canada rages on. Tmc Amusements is holding the mighty nitro pinball stool captive and won’t relinquish it until our demands are met.
    Our demands are simple...all the nitro bucks.
    Stay tuned.

    I almost had that here as well.
    If I’d known it was worth that much,I would have kept it

    You know you like it, Lol

    It Really does depend on the game and how it was maintained.
    It would have well over 1000 plays to, I would think.

    Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

    Hey folks. Recently I’ve been looking into the idea of buying a pinball machine from another province, and having it shipped to me. Up until this point I’ve only done in person deals though.
    My biggest question mark at this time is around the best way to pay so that I have solid protection as a buyer. Is PayPal the most common for long distance buys? I know that cash on the glass is best, but I’m curious what is best when that’s not possible.
    Thanks!

    Ask if someone local can check out the game for you.
    I do it all the time for out of town buyers here.
    check out his rep, if good should be no problem.
    In Canada email transfer is fine by me.

    Is the Trap closing in Calgary? Are the games set to move somewhere else?

    Yes and yes.
    Trap is turning into a brew pub.
    Won’t have enough space for all the games.

    We have moved to Woods Well in the SE.

    Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

    So my son has been getting more and more into superheroes lately, and so I’ve been thinking more and more about getting a superhero pinball machine. With that said, I just picked up a t2, so the budget is a bit tight. I know there’s quite a few superhero dmd pins out there, but which tend to be the cheapest usually in Canada? I was thinking an avengers pro or x-men pro, but maybe I’m forgetting a different one.

    Save a bit more and get a Spider-Man.
    Way better then both of those.
    Yes I have one, lol.

    Couple of guys in Calgary carry the invisaglass, or what ever brand they call it.
    Glass comes from Nitro Pinball in B.C.

    Algrande on here is one guy.

    If I order a lot of parts from Marco Specialties I alway talk with them and have them ship direct.
    There International shipping goes through IGlobal, and they kill us on shipping.
    My last order through IGlobal, would have been 155.00 US.
    Marco did it for 70.00 U.S, and I got it in two days.

    Hey my fellow Canadians,
    I didn’t want to sidetrack the what’s for sale thread, so am posting here. I haven’t ever really followed stern LE prices in Canada, so I was wondering, what stern LEs can be had for $9500 Canadian or less? Here’s the ones I know of, but I know I’m likely missing some:
    Transformers
    X-men
    Original stern avengers
    Black Spider-Man
    Avatar
    AC/DC (this one I realize now isn’t right, I was thinking premium prices)
    Mustang
    Wwe wrestlemania
    Also inline with this, how much do ghostbusters LEs tend to go for at this time?

    Just sold the LOTR LE for under 10,000.00

    #2863 46 days ago
    Quoted from jesperpark:

    Star trek le or for sure a premium should be around that price range

    STLE is over 10,000 if you can find one around us at all.

    bcrage88 well I sure hope they get the kinks out of it before I get my CE.
    Is it going to be too hard to progress through the songs with the ball savers off though.
    Or can you still get your ad a ball, and progress that way too.

    #2937 2 days ago
    Quoted from bcrage88:

    Come on man, I have never had to make a large mechanical adjustment out of the box on any Stern, American Pinball or any other manufacture, I have been able to play them right out of the box with small software adjustments. There is a lot of crap talk about these manufactures but JJP gets a pass all the time because of how well they are made. This was a simple fix for one of the best technicians I know but for someone like me who knows enough to be dangerous I couldn’t figure it out. So it is expected that I should have to do that work when I receive the machine. Sorry my rant stands this issue should have been addressed at factory and hope that someone else doesn’t run into this issue when they get their machine.

    Rant away, I would rather know about issues than not.
    At least I know what to look at when I get mine.
    Check your record spinner nut on the bottom too.
    I heard a lot were coming loose. first runs anyway.
