I have toyed with selling my Banzai Run which is 98% restored to new at this point. The remaining 2% I picked up a New Mirco playfield set to make it CQ which wasn't needed but it was to pretty to pass up. PM me if you might be interested as your not that far and I travel to Madison often. Just throwing it out there.

Thanks!

There are plenty of pin hogs here I just dont have the room or money to do that, otherwise I might just.

I've got 43 pins right now.

Just like anything else, a little bit all the time and you'll be there before you know it.

Looking for a Haunted House, Bad Cats, and Whirlwind, un-restored/projects OK! I'm not interested in anything fully restored and minty fresh.

#6958 14 days ago

Selling a Chexx hockey machine if anyone's interested. It's on Craigslist too, so that should be fun.

I'll offer you $50 and a 5 year old Android tablet. But you gotta deliver.

Redditors should check out r/delusionalcraigslist for some good laughs.

#6964 14 days ago

Haha I have a 5 year old Android tablet in a drawer here at work somewhere. I had no idea that could be considered currency.

You have that listed as a Super Chexx, it's only a Chexx and worth about half of what you are asking. Sorry, just giving you a heads up.

#6966 13 days ago

Thanks. I'll remove the Super.

#6967 13 days ago

Thinking about listing my Paragon soon. Lots of new stuff replaced on it. Has typical insert cupping, and a little wear on the pf, but it plays and presents well. If you were at MRP this last year, you likely played it. Let me know if you're interested.

#6968 13 days ago

My daughter who goes to University of Wisconsin in Madison is fundraising for "A Moment of Magic". She's trying to raise $420 for a professional character costume to wear when visiting critically ill kids. Here's a link to the post.

Sorry to bring it in this thread, but I'm incredibly proud how she's chosen to use her time in college. Hate to admit, I would be playing video games, pinball, sports and drinking. Just a quick shout out.

I’m listing one in a few days. Not sure how nice you need it to be, this is player’s condition re-import that needs a good shop job but will be cheap. Like under $2500 with Color DMD cheap.

#6977 9 days ago

Moving onto a new home and am selling my machines do I dont have to transport them.

Metalica pro. About a year and a half old. Bought brand new. Has color dmd dmd total light show plus all the tasteful mods expected. 5k

Twd premium. Has color dmd. 5800. Why so cheap? It got damaged underneath the machine during shipping. Has a dent under the coin box under the machine only. Otherwise beautiful. Literally just bought this new a few months ago.

Doctor who. 3500. I've put in new ramps, new motor on the time expander, new pop bumpers, new flipper coils and mechs, new coin door, new legs, new metal parts and polished many more. New color dmd dmd put on new decals. No topper.

Can send pics, of course.

#6978 9 days ago

Doctor who spoken for. Still have walking dead premium and met pro for sale. Can send pics, but both have been purchased new by me recently.

#6979 9 days ago

Twd has sold. Guys, let's get this MET pro sold. Perhaps if you're reading this, you are unaware of the marvel and majesty if the total light show mod. It is super fucking awesome. Machine is in pretty much perfect shape.

Hello All:
I have been wrestling with a possible game buy. I am looking at a machine in Milwaukee and I contacted the seller. They want me to provide my info so they can contact ebay services to exchange funds for the machine. She gave a story about moving and wanting to sell ASAP. Should I pursue this or am I looking at a scam?
Any help would be great.
Mike

#6985 9 days ago

Hello All Again
A little more Googling and found same email for a vehicle that someone wanted to buy. Big scam. Should have known it was too good to be true.
Buyer beware.

If this isn't on eBay, why would you be using eBay services? Google seems to believe this is a scam. I'm going to agree with Google.

Thought as much. My first google search pulled up zip, So I added some more details and there you go. Didn't need another machine anyway.

The $800 Star Trek TNG? Of course that was too good to be true.

Quoted from packie1:

Was this the ST:TNG that was listed for $800? If so, I saw the same ad listing, with the same pictures, but for something totally unrelated listed in another town. Total scam of course.

YEP. Had me on the hook, but I got away!

Thankfully your radar went off before you got too far down the road. It's nice to dream that you'll find a deal but it seems there is a group of people out there that do nothing but monitor craigslist looking for the deals and even if you are the first to respond, someone else will contact them and tell them they're selling it crazy cheap and offer more. Unless you get there, buy it, and have it loaded before anyone else contacts them, your chances are slim.

But keep dreaming - you just never know.

I can't deny that I've considered putting up fake ads for really cheap games just to f**k with those people.

Just a shout out Thank You to #jorant An excellent buying experience and a stand up great guy. Picked up our new to us Doctor Who and my wife was elated with her Valentines Day gift. (at least that's what I'm calling it!!!) Thank your family for stealing your evening and for the great game. Better then described and exactly what we were looking for. Safe travels!

You're a lucky man. If I gave my wife a pin as a "Valentine's Day gift", she'd be looking for a good divorce attorney the next day.

Thats a fair statement but in 100% honesty this was a game I mistakenly sold some years ago and she never let me forget it as it was her favorite addiction. Just loves that loop champion thing. Bragging but I must admit I'm a bit lucky as my wife really enjoys not only Making pinball parts with me but also Playing pinball. Really makes the hobby a bit more enjoyable and easier to explain ($$$) when I find my next "We got to have this!!" pin. lol

I was just talking to Lyman 2 weeks ago. I was telling him at my first Pinball Expo back in 1997 or 98, I remember him playing on Dr Who with Josh Sharpe and watching Lyman do that loop over and over effortlessly. I think I walked away after about 30 loops.....

I checked it out last night and the info is incorrect, it is a Gold Beatles at the Lamplighter Inn.

Did you ask how many loops he got? I thought I heard it was like two or three hundred. Very lucrative to get sonic boom with 4x pf multiplier. And then just keep it going.

I have 6 tickets for Ariana Grande's Sweetener Tour for Miami, FL I am looking to sell or trade. These tickets were over $4000 total. They (ticket master) will not allow me to physically get the tickets until the day of the concert. We have bought another set of tickets with meet and greet, so these need to go. Any one interested, shoot me a PM.

Thanks
