    black_rose looking like he would straight up kill someone.

    There are only two guys on this planet I wouldn’t mess with, Mike Tyson and BLACK_ROSE.

    Bought a Ripleys from them. Got tired of getting jerked around by private sellers. Price a smidge steep imo? Sure. I didn't have to buy it either. Saved me a lotta headache and half the drive so to me it was worth it. Took the drive to save some money on shipping. Was 3.5 hrs each way. Chris was super nice - showed me around, played some pinball, we grabbed a drink. Got the game home and it had some issues that arguably were both our faults. He didn't go thru the game before i bought it..and i didn't go through it thoroughly before I put it in my Jeep. I'd argue half on me, half on them. And probably coulda rightfully told me to pound sand - after all I inspected it. They made it right. Offered cash back or store credit on parts i ordered to trouble shoot and fix the game. Didn't see anything I liked - said to donate it to an animal rescue. They upped the donation 25% over what the parts were when they didn't have to. Never asked for proof or anything on the parts - took me at my word. They earned my repeat business - more and more people dont care past earning a buck. Don't get that feeling from them at all. They're there to make money - it's a business. It seems like they try and run a legit up and up business. And re: cointaker fan club. This was my first transaction with them. Handled differently I'd have easily went elsewhere but I'm already looking at a JP Prem from them. Solid price and good people.

    I have ordered all my NIB games (4) from Melissa and she has always been great. Would not hesitate in the future as well. Sorry you had a bad experience but I don’t think it was deliberate.

    #105 56 days ago

    I’ve bought a few games, LEDs, and other parts from Cointaker over the years and have always had great customer service. Melissa has always been extremely helpful. She has even sent replacement parts for games I didn’t buy from them.
    I’m surprised to hear others have had negative experiences.

    #106 56 days ago

    Big fan of cointaker here too! Never had an issue and purchased many things from them.

    #107 56 days ago

    I really dislike threads like this.
    Regardless of intent, threads like this drive business away or towards vendors and really can hurt sales and impact people businesses.

    #108 56 days ago

    Lmaooooooooo look at goofy

    Ive been a customer since day one and have received nothing but top notch service. Ive recommended too many fellow pinheads to them and they will also get my business from nib pins to leds. Keep it up Melissa and Chris.

    I recently ordered a set of mirror blades from CT. Melissa was very quick to respond to a minor issue that was quickly rectified and was a learning experience for the both of us.

    Top notch customer service and would definitely order from them again.

    #111 56 days ago

    I have ordered NIB BM66, JP2, WWLE, and TMNTLE, and a demo GOTG from Melissa. Best cost, best value. Minor issues were always addressed. I will continue to do business with Cointaker and Melissa.

    #112 55 days ago

    No issues at all with Cointaker. Always a good experience.

    #113 55 days ago

    Please! More anecdotal evidence! It's so pertinent!

    Agree. I would be best for concerned customers create a private thread and let CT address problems without all the additional comments. IMO

    #115 55 days ago

    Just ordered 2 NIBs pros from them this week. Have always had very good experiences with them, and Melissa is great.

    #116 55 days ago

    Have bought 4, maybe 5 NIB games and a bunch of other things from them over the years. Never an issue that I can remember. Will buy from them again once BOTH my kids are through college...

    #117 55 days ago

    Well, just got off the phone with my buddy. LE Avengers from Cointaker ordered.
    And the MMR XL display and other upgrades arrived today. Really happy with their service.

    #118 55 days ago

    As a competitor of theirs: I have heard nothing but good things about their customer service. As a new vendor(with some similar items to sell) at some trade shows over the past few years I can say that they run their organization with class. I happily sent customers their way when I was out of stock etc. I now do business with them as a regular customer, and could not be happier with their customer service .

    I bought something heavy and smoooooth sailing.
