I wasn't fast enough! Someone local scored a Dragonfist for $300 on Craigslist. 1981 Stern, 300-ish made.
This sounds like an adventure:
"Atari Airborn Avenger pinball machine. Released in 1977 or 78, one of about 350 made. Not working though it does light up, but makes a buzzing sound, might be a transformer issue?? Glass is good, cabinet needs cleaning, metal trim pieces have some pitting, playing surface decent with some paint missing. The machine is in a building about 100 yards from the road. You will need to have people to carry it to road or dismantle and take out."
I'm looking for Satin Doll and Mr. & Mrs. Pac-Man. Both quirky titles, but my brother-in-law has requested them.
I reached out to the person in Island Lake with the Satin Doll.
Ditto for the person in Frankfort with the Pac Man.
Update 8/25 I picked up the Satin Doll in Island Lake today via facepalm marketplace. I have several leads on a Pac-Man via Pinside and Craigslist.
I am very jealous of the person who picked up a $200 Meteor in McHenry last night off Craigslist. Christmas came early for someone!
