Quoted from dj_xwing:

Toying around w/ the idea of trading my Metallica Pro for a Walking Dead Pro...would anyone in the area be interested? Pin is in great condition, fully LED'd & a few mods (snake fangs, tongue decal, fluorescent plastic protectors, mezel speaker mods & a couple Laserriffic guitars)

If CSI is still of interest to you, I can talk to my wife about it. It's "her" machine, but if any machine would get her to part with it, it's Metallica...

Feeling out trades for my ST:TNG in Plymouth, WI. Would be looking for Met pro, TWD pro, POTC, TF etc. Maybe multi game or game+cash with JD, DM, BK, RBION, etc. Possibly open to others.

Old thread here from last time I was thinking about letting it go a couple years ago. Ignore the price/wants, but has lots of details. Only change since then is I added a full LED kit from Pinbulbs (changed a few to my taste...less blue) and the GI OCD board to make the shields and dimming work great.

Toying with the idea of trading out my X-Men:Wolverine. Ideal trade would be a Metallica premium or GoT pro, but might be open to others. PM for details if interested. Just a trade feeler for now. If I get serious about selling, I will post an ad.

Trade feeler: My HUO, lightly modded X-Men LE Wolverine for Metallica pro or Game of Thrones pro. Would be looking for a negotiable amount of cash my way (unless heavily modded). Would also be interested in a Metallica premium, but the cash from my end would have to be minimal, so I won't hold my breath. Thanks.

Quoted from catboxer:

Are all Stern games after Avatar still fetching over 4.5k used? For awhile there, in 2013/14, Avengers was getting down to 3.8-4.2k for an LE, and I think Mustang was maybe getting into the low 3s? Its been about 4 years since I bought a game.

I think you are $1k low on both of these. Avengers LE hovers around $5k. I think I saw one for a couple hundred less but definitely not into the low $4s, much less the 3s. Maybe an Avengers pro would hit the range you listed. Mustang pro is $4k give or take a couple hundred for routed, mods, etc.

Not a pinball, but thought I would throw this out there in case anyone wanted a beautiful piece for their game room. If I sold it, I would use the money for pinball anyway.....so I thought I would see if there was any interest in a trade(s). It's one of my high-end digger (crane) restorations.

That is freaking beautiful!

Toying with the idea of trading my Spiderman (Stern original, not vault) for a Metallica. Not HUO or perfect but a very good player. It has nice LEDs (Comet sunlight GI with color matching inserts...no color bombing), LED OCD board, speaker lights with spider acrylics, and a shaker. Any of these can be removed depending on the deal. Has some minor cabinet scratches/scuffs and some clearcoat wear around a few inserts. Not very noticeable, but there. Magnet area is perfect. Again, not HUO but nice for a routed machine and it plays great.

Would be looking for an equal or close to equal trade for a Metallica pro. Definitely wouldn't mind a premium but would have to discuss the price difference...not sure I could make that work.

Let me know if you have any interest.

Thinking about shaking up the collection.

Blackout w/new repro BG: $1000
Pinbot: $1500
Doctor Who w/color DMD: $3000
No Fear w/black powder coat, upgraded speakers, and all new ramps and plastics: $3000
Spiderman w/shaker, LED-OCD, speaker lights, etc: $4700 (ad in marketplace)

Trades toward Metallica pro, Star Trek pro, Star Wars pro only. Most prices are somewhat negotiable so feel free to make offers, but low-balls will be ignored. I will try to get pictures and ads posted in the next couple days.

Quoted from cards25:

Damn this sounds sweet.....timing just not right for me.

You know you want to trade that Metallica...

#4633 2 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

#4635 2 years ago
Quoted from jorant:

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

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.

#4646 2 years ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

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

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

Please be realistic with prices...not going to pay NIB price for a used pin unless there are major desirable mods to justify it. Let me know what you have.

Looking for a Star Wars pro within a few hours drive of Plymouth, WI. Figured I would see if anyone wants to move one before signing up for a NIB. Please note that I am not looking to spend more than I can get a show special NIB for unless you have significant mods to justify.
Thanks

#5714 1 year ago
Quoted from BradKreisler:

What price would be a "show special" in your opinion on a SW Pro?

No "opinion", just fact. It's a very good deal, but they are cautious about posting prices online. If you look up MGC on Facebook there is all the info on who to contact if you are really interested. Let's just say I would have to find a machine for less than $4800 in order to not just go NIB (if it's stock...there are some mods I would pay extra for).

I am gonna set up 15 FT some day and invite Neo over for a tournament.
For finals we will go to the next room and I will have 10 xfiles set up

Can we do 5 X-Files and 5 Street Fighter 2s instead?

#5724 1 year ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

And all 5 should have clearcoated playfields, Cointaker LED's, colordmd display, alternate translite, and a chrome coin door.. And a pricetag of $5k on each of them.

Gotta be a mixture of blue and red superbright LEDs though.

We love ya Neo man!

By the way, found my SW so no longer looking.

Hmm...not seeing any. Do you have a link? I wonder if that was cpr9999's that recently sold. Made up my mind a hair late on that one.
Thanks!

#6650 11 months ago
Quoted from gweempose:

You only had what, like a month to decide?

LOL...actually only had a day between my game selling and his game selling...and I had another game pending during that time that the seller decided to keep. So at least I have a slight excuse.

Quoted from Mtg381:

I have an AC/DC premium vault if you're not dead set on the pro.

I am not set on the pro, but I am guessing my budget is. Would love a premium, but it would honestly have to be below market for me to swing it. Please shoot me a price, but odds are I will not be able to make it work. Thanks!

Quoted from Electronmagic:

So if someone at a garage sale is selling an Adams Family for $100, you could pay him $100 for it and feel no guilt?

Absolutely. The internet exists now. It would take literally 3 seconds to research enough to know it is worth significantly more than that. They set the price, not me. Now if they asked me for a fair offer, or asked for help pricing it, that is a completely different story.

#7425 4 months ago

I'm really not sure how ethics comes into play at all in this scenario. Buyer sets a price, I pay it. It is not my responsibility to educate the seller, it is my responsibility to complete a deal as agreed upon, in this case paying what THEY asked for.

For a well known item like this, even someone with zero knowledge of what a pinball is could get at least a rough ballpark of price almost instantly using google. No special knowledge needed what-so-ever. That doesn't really apply to the 15th century vase example as that is not a common item which can be recognized without some level of special knowledge. It isn't literally spelled out on the front of the item the way "The Addams Family" is.

There may be an argument to be made of someone not in the hobby selling a TAF gold for a standard price as that would be an easy mistake when researching, but no matter what they should know the market value is well over $100.

Again...this scenario completely changes if they ask me what a fair price would be. If that happens and I tell them $100, that would be unethical. But since they used whatever method they used and came up with an asking price without my input, that is not my responsibility in any way.

This situation has absolutely nothing to do with people offering / accepting more money after a deal has been agreed upon with someone else. That is 100% a dick move all around, but is completely different from what is being discussed here.

Looks like Clay took the liberty of converting the 8-track to mp3.. so if someone could take the DC voltage and power an mp3 trigger the sound could probably be salvaged.

Years ago when I first got it (must be close to 10 years?) there was a place selling repro 8-tracks. Should have bought one. Haven't looked for awhile though...they might still be out there.

The site you linked also has a file of the front panel artwork, so it would be fairly easy to restore that part. I always thought it looked fitting the way it is faded. I printed out the art once and it was just too colorful so I never went any further with it.
