Quoted from CaptainNeo:

not that fantasy. It's not like I don't buy games often.

Here we go again. Neo and his prices from 1975. Hilarious. It never ends.

#4602 3 years ago

it's about buying smart. When making purchases, you have to ask yourself. Is it going to cost me more to make this look good, than it would be to just buy one that looks good to begin with. Many on here seem to miss that aspect of buying routed games. They end up overpaying and then into the game more than they would be if they would have just bought a nicer one to begin with. $800 is not a lot of wiggle room to repair cosmetic issues. condition is king, but when I think routed, I'm expecting the worst and already expecting to pay for the worst.

Quoted from Jediturtle:

LOL.......no, sorry. Never say never, but MET will probably be the last game I ever sell. It's just that good, and you know this, that's why you want one. I hope you find one soon. I bought mine a little over 2 years ago and it plays perfect.

My Iron Man on the other hand could be had for a very reasonable price. 2010 original loaded with mods and HUO.

#4620 3 years ago

I'll be in town this weekend and have a starship troopers and Star Wars ep 1 I might be interested in selling or trading. Sarship troopers is a nice players game that could use a shopping and going through, and seems to also have a reset issue. Star Wars could use a cleaning but it's super nice.

#4621 3 years ago

thinking of trading or selling my star wars next gen, completely gone through with new ramps, flipper rebuilds, etc

#4624 3 years ago

yea the wide body one...I always get confused

#4631 3 years ago

Got a very, very nice GnR for sale. Has Color DMD, Slash figure, LEDs, light up back panel, mirror blades, unfaded cab and backbox, and original topper. Nicest GnR I've seen (and I've owned three of them!). Looking to move it quick, preferably this weekend. $5500 firm, no trades. Price is only for this weekend.

#4632 3 years ago

See what happens when you don't come on pinside. Two Dr Who's get sold.

#4633 3 years ago

The ST:Pro that I picked up came with a Cointaker Red Tremor shaker motor which is too powerful for my tastes. Anyone want to trade for a regular Stern / Pinball Life shaker? Or if interested in buying it outright, let me know. Prefer local but could ship. Let me know.

Thanks,
Chris

#4634 3 years ago

What exactly shakes when you use it in a star trek? I never got what the heck needed shaking in that game?

#4635 3 years ago
Quoted from jorant:

It's really well used in ST...especially during Vengeance and Klingon multiballs. Pretty much whenever something blows up, the machine gives a good shake. It's very immersive in my opinion, but I respect that not everyone likes shakers.

#4637 3 years ago

You sharpie'd in the faded cab? Holy crap that must have been an undertaking to do. How many house did that take?

#4639 3 years ago
Quoted from ChrisS:

it came out pretty nice, time wise hard to say, long enough to finish a six pack.

#4642 3 years ago

Need to move some pinballs here shortly since I have some other games I am going to want to keep.

Metallica Pro(bought new, low plays) $4900. Original run with wood. Has coin taker LEDS
Space Jam- HUO- $1800
F14 Tomcat- Unshopped, have to set it up still, but works fine. $1500
Space Invaders- Unshopped, have to set it up still. Will include rubber kit. $950
Star War Episode one- Unshopped, works fine. $2200

I am around all day here Saturday and Sunday if someone want to pickup. I am in the Downers Grove/Woodridge area.

#4643 3 years ago

Selling a nice player's StarShip Troopers. Was in storage but I need room so selling. Haven't spent much time with this game - I cleaned up the playfield and it looks nice, and all mechanisms seem to work great. Looks like this was done-up by Midwest Pinball (not sure how long ago). Cab has some damage on the back from probably sliding/storage - no water or moisture or anything like that. Asking $1800 and located in S. Barrington near Rt 59. I'm home today and tomorrow AM. Also have a super nice Star Wars Ep 1 that I would trade along with SST for something else.

Someone a few months back (probably not from Chicago?) was desperately trying to find a Space Jam on Pinside and couldn't find one for even twice that price. No idea who that was...but I remember it for being so random.

Edit: it was this guy...sell it to him!

AC/DC has a shaker setting so you can turn it down. Did you check that?

#4646 3 years ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

That setting affects how often it is used, not how strong it shakes when used. At least in ST. Thanks for the idea though!

#4647 3 years ago

Looking to trade (or sell) my Junkyard. Game is in excellent shape. No game play issues. Cliffy set installed. It's an import. Only thing of note when I shopped it about 15 years ago (geez, it's been that long?) was that I had to do some touchup for some dings on the front and right side of the cabinet.

If you're looking to drum up money for it, you could bring the Class of 1812 here on your way there!
