Quoted from ssbodyman:

If so Ill deliver it for you for free, I'm coming up on the 24th -Paul is a good guy

You would do that for me ss. That would be GREAT. Bill contacted me yesterday and I sent him a message to call me today but he hasn't. I know a GREAT steak place I'll take ya as a way of saying thanks. Your coming for the Back to the Fifties I'll bet.

#225 6 years ago
Quoted from ssbodyman:

Absolutely Paul just let me know if you and Bill can make a deal. Headed up for volleyball again so Ill drive the big suv this time who knows maybe I can find something to bring home with me.

I hope he contacts me soon. Ah volleyball, I forgot about that. Well I have the LAH you could bring back. You'll have to check it out again. Thanks again.

WOW!! What went in the white areas?

#256 6 years ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

I would imagine this was Stern's attempt to steal the thunder of Bally Space invaders, so it probably had a 2nd layer underneath with mirror and infinity lamps.

that would make sense.

1300 for the HS. Non playing, No keys, probable acid damage.
700 for the flash, non playing, no score leds. I'm guessing no keys as well.
Wonder if they'll sell.

HS no way unless the pf is new and the cab and bg are mint then maybe. I'm only asking $950 for mine and it's in MUCH better shape then that one.

Very nice car. That's why I'm selling some of my pins.......I want to get a muscle car!
Dad was a big gear head when he was young. Looks like another expensive hobby.

Thanks. Yes it's a very expensive hobby that is constantly exposed to the elements, road conditions, bad other drivers and your dumb moves. Be prepared. But it sure is fun when everything works.

I will also be taking a trip to CO in Jan/Feb to take my brother his first pinball game (late Bday present for him and a suprise). I will have room to transport 1 (possibly 2) games back from boulder CO area to Madison area if someone wants to plan ahead.

Anybody ready to dump their Walking Dead pro to get a premium? Sold a game and my wife went nuts because she is having here office x-mas party at our house next Fri and we are down a game. Not sure if I can get a new one by then but I plan to look into it tomorrow.

Steve, hope it wasn't a game she liked. Would she like a WD?

Quoted from dirtbag66:

I just went to Round 1 Bowling at Stratford Square Mall and they have three pins there. Metallica, Walking Dead and Mustang. Each play is four credits (we got 64 credits for $14). The best part was I played three games for free since people are impatient and leave before realizing they just won a free game!
All the machines are in solid shape, which was mice as well.

Which game did you like the best?

#1090 5 years ago
Quoted from dirtbag66:

I'll be honest, I didn't play Metallica or Mustang. I was with my family and my two children (ages 4 and 2) were pulling me in two separate directions the entire time! My daughter played Metallica (as well as a four year old can) and my son played Mustang. I would have used all the credits on myself, but that would be just mean. I'll probably head back by myself so I can play in peace!

I'll bet the kids had fun with dad.

Margarine is illegal in Wisconsin?

For damn good reason, that stuff was originally invented to fatten turkeys but it killed them. It's one molecule away from being plastic, put a stick of it out for a month and won't rot, flys won't go near it and nothing will grow on it and a bunch of other stuff. Look it up. It should be illegal everywhere, the stuff will kill you.

Quoted from gweempose:

When I think about how much money I've blown on tech that became obsolete, it practically sickens me. I paid well over 5 grand for that rear projection XBR. I think I paid about $2,300 for my first flat screen, and it was only 22". And don't even get me started on laser discs ... Believe it or not, I paid over $1,000 for my first portable DVD player. It was worth it, though. You should have seen the looks I got from people on airplanes.

I had a 50 inch Pioneer front projector back in 1981 that cost me millions. How's that you say...I bought it from a friend who worked at Sound of Music, he said don't buy it because Sound of Music was shutting down and starting up as a new company and would be offering stock at $2 a share. I said I wanted the tv so I payed 2k and walked out the door with it. I could have had 1000 shares of original Best Buy stock. I think it has split 10 times since then and if I figured right I could have a million shares now.

Threw a WTB ad out there, but thought I,would try on here. Looking for some random playfield plastics to practice flattening/poloshing etc. Thought someone might have some old,junk ones for cheap that were warped,etc.
Got a couple projects and dont want to wreck the ones I need trying to practice techniques. Prob melt em with my luck
If you may have something, please PM me.
Thanks all!!

Just heat them up a flat piece of metal or hard wood one at a time using a heat gun set on low and move to back and forth and just when it's to hot to touch quick put another piece of wood on top with about 10lbs of weight on it and let it cool. If it's not flat enough just do it again. It really is very easy. I haven't wrecked a piece yet.

I will be taking a trip from MSN to Muskegon, MI (via Ferry) and then down to FortWayne, IN and then back to MSN (via around chitown route).
I am picking up 2 games (1 in MI and 1 in northern IN) and will have room for a 3rd if anyone on this route has something to sell.
I will also have room to transport on this route if anyone needs a hand.
Please hit me up if you have anything on the general rout efor sale.

Cool a ferry crossing, what do they get for a one way trip these days.

#1571 5 years ago

wow they lowered it. Used to be insane for the car and no people. The kick in the nuts tho, is that you can just drive around the bottom of the lake for around $35 in a minivan.

#2132 5 years ago

Be careful with this design. See the little ridge in the slot where the glass goes well I tried to put that one on my Batman Forever tl and it wouldn't go on no matter how hard I tried. I didn't try to slide it on cuz I thought it would scrape the printing off the back side of the tl so I just put a regular lift plastic on. I had to put a couple of small pieces of double layer friction tape on the bg and then pushed the plastic down over them. Worked great.

#2135 5 years ago
Quoted from dung:

No it did not. It had a translite. I've owned two and it was the first Sega to really start showing cost cutting measures.

Lots to shoot on that game, I love mine. I got mine blinged out REAL good.

#2384 4 years ago

I am just an "average Joe" player.......

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

you make about 10X profit from mods

Say WHAT!!! In my dreams I'm making 10X profit on my Leg Light-Ups...I must be doing something wrong then.

#2505 4 years ago
Quoted from CaptainNeo:

depends on the mod. the TZ lamp shades, when theywere going for $150 were more than 10X. The LED TAF swap light was 20X. The LED lamp boards for stern games for hte backbox are at least 10X profit. All depends on the mods. Those $8 chinese cannons for AC/DC people are selling for a hell of a lot more. (bought mine online at a chinese cheap toy site $8 shipped). so depending on the mod, some of them are massive profit. like toppers cut out of cheap ass plastic and charge $75+. So don't act like mods can't make a shit ton of profit, which is fine. My statement was saying it's a hell of a lot easier money in mods than trying to flip games.

Well your first statement should have been this clear in the first place. It should have read "some" mods are 10X profit. Thanks for clearing that up. My time is worth just as much for making my mod as yours is for touching up and clearing pf's...but I understand yours is more time consuming and messy.

#2506 4 years ago
Quoted from dirtbag66:

So defensive! I wonder why?

Why are you trying to start an argument with a statement like that, there's no call for it.

#2516 4 years ago
Quoted from CaptainNeo:

when making statements I would assume people would know it doesn't mean every single incident would be true.

Never assume anything when on a board, statements are taken at face value. Say what you mean and mean what you say.

Huge shout-out to Trekie for the amazing help this weekend. He volunteered to help a complete stranger (and not only volunteer his time and muscle, but drove to a random seller's home, dragged his escalara and attachments, and basically broke down the game completely by himself and loaded it into my car). It's easy to get jaded from some of the negativity here, but this forum & hobby in general has some of the most generous and kind people you will meet.

That's great.

#3111 4 years ago
Quoted from stpcore:

Does anyone have a Wizard of Oz (later run preferred), Hobbit Smaug, or a Metallica Premium for sale or trade?
I'm also looking for a nice condition populated playfield (no cabinet necessary) for a project. The actual game title isn't as important as the overall condition of the populated playfield and plastics. It's going to be used as a display piece so it doesn't have to be functional as it's not going into a cabinet.

I have a beautiful home version Brown Dirt Cowboy....and I mean beautiful. It's complete with all the boards and everything on the back side and the apron.

#3117 4 years ago
Quoted from stpcore:

Thanks Paul. Let me keep looking if you don't mind as although the theme isn't the most important I haven't ever been a big EJ fan. That said how much are you asking? Feel free to PM me.

#3134 4 years ago

Cool, our girls have to be in a glassed off room because one of our city councilwomen 30 years age decided she didn't like strip clubs so she got a city ordinance passed.

#3153 4 years ago
Quoted from kklank:

Also, I bought a used escalera so getting out of the basement should be easy! Actually I've never gone upstairs using an escalera before but I hear it's easy! Lol.

Just make sure the battery is fully charged EVER time you use it. I buddy of mine rented one and he ran out of charge half way up the steps, good thing I was there to get an extension cord to plug it in and charge. He held the game there for 15 minutes so it could charge long enough to get it up the rest of the way.

#3160 4 years ago
Quoted from kklank:

Holy crap! That's horrible. I'll go charge her right now.

It's a 12v battery I think so buy one of those battery minder trickle chargers and keep it on it all the time, well worth the money and your battery will last a lot longer too.

#3177 4 years ago
Quoted from seshpilot:

Star Wars cockpit for sale!
Absolutely gorgeous example of this holy grail game.
PROS:
-(2) complete cockpits were used to make this (1) example. The other game was sold off as a parts game. Thus, the best parts from both games were combined to make this! See my restore blog right here on Pinside at: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/1984-atari-star-wars-cockpit-restore
-Yes, it has the 25” Ampliphone monitor AND I’m also throwing in an extra 25” compatible tube!!! These are rare like hen’s teeth, but I managed to find 1 that I will include (though you certainly don’t need it).
-Brand new reproduction plexiglass canopy set from ThisOldGame.com.
-Brand new reproduction control panel overlay from ThisOldGame.com.
-The artwork has been meticulously gone over and fixed up where necessary (for example: all the black trim around the edges was repainted black). Though there may be a few knicks here and there, the artwork looks extremely good!
-The lighted marquee in the back is gorgeous. No flaking and colorful. Only a very small sliver missing from where the marquee rubs against the wood that really can only be seen when the marquee is removed.
-Coin door is gorgeous. For that matter, all metal pieces have been repainted black (even the screws!)
-Flight yoke is a smooth, consistent black and not worn down. All parts for controller have been cleaned and re-greased
-Includes a brand new reproduction monitor bezel with the reflective strips (again, something that is impossible to find)
-Boards have been meticulously gone over. Sound boards were sent out and bulletproofed, Ampliphone video boards were sent out and bulletproofed
-Power supply has been fully re-capped
-Brand new vector generator on the graphics board!
-Many new pieces (power cord, floor mat, bezel, etc…)
CONS:
-The tube has a small dime-sized burn in the center. This does not affect gameplay and can only be seen during certain scenes as most of the game is a black starfield! This burn happened prior to my taking ownership and certainly occurred due to the “spot killer” not functioning properly. This however has been fixed and is properly working. Again, I’m also including another 25” compatible tube should you desire to ever replace the original tube (you’d need to swap the yoke and whatnot).
-While all of the cabinet is there and artwork has been touched up, it isn’t a perfect cab. There are a few cosmetic cracks you can see if you look closely. Not a big deal, but just sharing as much as possible.
-While the triggers on the controller work flawlessly, the thumb buttons currently only work every now and again. Doesn’t affect gameplay as all the buttons do the exact same thing (shoot), and honestly this shouldn’t be difficult to fix. It never bothered me enough to mess with it.
-It’s in my basement. I’ll provide ice cold beverages of your choice (beer, soda, water), but you’re going to need to bring a buddy with you to get it out of the basement cause she ain’t light or small!
Please feel free to PM me with any questions. $5200

Damn if I had the room in my garage (second game room) I'd be all over this. You did a GREAT job on it. You know how to repair a MACH 3 laser disc game? I think I have a board problem.

I like enabling the forum discussion option on sales threads, but my current Twilight Zone thread (and another TZ for sale thread by Saveleaningtower) are absolute cesspools of long-time members trolling or going completely off-topic and diverting attention onto themselves. It's like their way of rebelling against the system. If this is what $35 gets me, I'll pass and just turn off all discussion in the future.

That sounds like a Pinside member problem to me.

Pinside keeps hanging up on me tonight when I try to place an ad.

They have been real slow for me tonight but at one point tonight there were over 1000 people on so I wonder if that had anything to do with it.

Wondering if anyone local would be able to help me put a value on some older arcade machines? A collector friend of mine passed away recently and his wife asked me to help her liquidate.

Sorry to hear that Steve.

What do you mean by blown out?

Missing paint, bare wood showing, planking etc.

Quoted from 6point5degrees:

Will soon be posting my beloved F14 Tomcat to fund this purchase (figure it's easier than getting a paper route).

Well I bought my 1970 Mustang (new) with my paper route money.........took me 8 years though.

Sure get all that salt dust all over your bike and watch it eat it alive!

Try going out to the Bonneville salt flats for a race and have it rain. Talk about SALT!!!

Quoted from packie1:

you want to chrome a whole playfield? sure if you want.

Now THAT would be one of a kind. I'd like to see that. But oh the dimples even if it were cleared. Maybe one of those Hard Tops with no printing on it.

Quoted from stpcore:

I'm in a funk of bad pinball luck lately and can't seem to find anything to fill a fourth spot in my lineup. If anyone has a fun pin that's not getting attention (preferably with a very nice playfield) in the $2000 - $3000 range can you please consider sending me a PM. It's OK if it's not fully working or if it needs to be shopped (I like that part of collecting).
Some pins I'm interested in (Earthshaker, Whirlwind, High Speed 2, Fish Tales, X-Files, Judge Dredd, The Shadow, RBION, and more) I only have cash to buy 1 pin.
Every pin I've been interested in for the past month or so has been sold just before I can put in an offer and it's driving me insane, lol. Im done feeling sorry for myself now. Thanks guys.

I have a beautiful, 100% playing RCT for $2900 but you'd have to pick it up.

Quoted from FatPanda:

I think it really depends on the situation. Pretty sure that if you're a private seller in the pinball hobby and you need to cover the basic needs, as you put it, then you need to straighten out your priorities. I'm also sure that a private seller typically doesn't offer a written warranty against operation or defects or whatever else GAP (or other distributors) provide. Buying and selling in the pinball world is no different than buying a car. (yes, a car analogy). You could buy from a dealership, and expect to pay a higher price, but to also have the perks associated with buying from a dealership. Or you can buy from a private seller, and have to deal with the mysteries of buying from said seller.
Bottom line, if you don't support what GAP (or any other distributor/reseller does) then you can speak your opinion by not buying from them. Plain and simple.

Yup, that's the way it works.

Quoted from valechippa6925:

Currently have a Jack-bot for trade, I have an ad posted on the marketplace with pics and info if interested let me know.

The game looks nice so if you don't get any trade offers and want to sell let me know, I get over to the Chicago area every once in a while and could pick it up.

WOW!!! All games are half price on Monday. So I could get a Tron for $4k on Monday. That's a deal.

Quoted from rosh:

I expect we will have three at expo. Unfortunately the first batch of playfields we got had some printing issues, and we won't have the next batch in time for expo, so we will have to use the flawed ones.

I'd buy one of those for a wall hanger if you were to sell them at a good price.

#4973 3 years ago
Quoted from rosh:

Not sure how many bad playfields we have, and how many we will end up using, but for machines they do get installed in, my guess is that those machines will eventually be sold as 'production samples' with the subpar playfields.

OK well keep me in mind. Thanks.

#5035 3 years ago
Quoted from stpcore:

I'm getting ready to put some decor on the walls of my game room and was wondering if anyone local may have a playfield or 2 that I can use as a wallhanger? Preferably something solid state 80's to current. Consider sending me a PM if you have something. I can pck up locally or will be at Expo on that Friday.

If you get a couple think about lighting the inserts. I've it up 8 of mine with strings of 100 white led Christmas tree lights. The wires are thin so you can make tight bends if you have to and they come with a 9 effect controller. On ebay they are like $9 from China. I use Gorilla tape to cover the bulbs once in the inserts and hold them in place.

#5037 3 years ago
Quoted from brmorr:

Sent you a PM, have a NOS Hook playfield that you could technically hang on a wall!! Will probably be at Expo on either Thursday night or Friday night.

Nice, never seen one for sale before, that must be expensive.

Pretty nice Gorgar with clear coated PF and re-stenciled cab. Amateur restore, but worth every penny for what it is. All new boards and LEDs throughout. $2k FIRM.

That looks to be in great shape. Are the inserts flat?

Price drop to $850 for a quick and hassle-free deal on Williams SWE1 kit. The playfield is completely populated, everything original and nothing missing, I've had a question or two about it. If you are interested please let me know. Thanks.
Brad

That's a good deal.

Quoted from gweempose:

The market has definitely become a bit sluggish. There are a lot of nice games sitting unsold that would have gone quickly a year ago.

Blame that on the new games and their price.

don't be so sure. Blue lights in the GI's makes games virtually unplayable. or green, red, or purple.

Except for Condition Green in Space Station.

#6721 2 years ago
Quoted from MalikyeMoon:

And using cheapo LEDs under inserts is just horrible. You want those to pop thru the GI, not be dimmer than an incandescent.

That's why I use Comet 2 smd white clear domes under all my clean inserts.
