Hello, new to the forum. Located in southern colorado and looking to purchase another machine. Ideally looking for a IJ, pinbot, black knight or any 80s williams game.
Yes it's up to date. Let me know if you are interested in anything
I tried to go look at it today too. I said i had cash in hand and he pretty much blew me off
I think I'm going to unload all my EM games to focus on what I really want. They were a good deal offered to me but my heart just isn't in them. I found a couple hooks I need to go up north to check out when the weather clears. Also looking for another firepower. If there is any interest in the EM please let me know
Gottlieb king pin
Gottlieb pro football
Gottlieb roller coaster
Gottlieb big shot
Chicago coin jukebox
Also have a project williams expo. I haven't messed with it but it looks to be missing a few things and has no backglass. I can get further into it (more than open the coin door) if anyone is interested.
There is also a gottlieb spin out and a straight shooter but my dad has pretty much laid claims to them unless someone really wants them
Went and looked at the firepower and hook at mirage today. He is asking 995 for the firepower. It works and looks great but has some minor issues that could be easily fixed. Thoughts?
The hook he is at 1995 and it's really clean. Just feel he is too high.
I was thinking about offering all my EM games + cash towards an Indiana jones, or trading a few for a black knight.
Gottlieb big shot, needs work $250?
Gottlieb roller coaster, plays great! $500?
Gottlieb king pin, great original condition, plays great $700?
Chicago coin juke box, plays great, needs back glass, there is one there but it's cracked. $400?
I'm not sure if my prices are too high or will work fine. I just want to move these games to make room for something new. Ideally trades would work
Wtb: junk play fields. The more damaged the better. Or basically any completely junk pins. I thought I had more stuff laying around but I am almost completely out.
From talking on the phone with him today he sounded like a nice guy. Hopefully I can work a deal out with him on the rollergames and black knight I've been looking for and can't find!
Gottlieb king pin. Clean original shape. Have the original owners packet with all new score cards. Need to make room. Can possibly deliver. $600
Still looking for roller games, black knight, swords of fury or possibly open to any Williams system 6-11.
Still have the Chicago coin jukebox and gottlieb kingpin for trades or sale. Might have a gottlieb pro football coming up soon
Yes! It's a really fun game. I need to do a little work to it but it's all good. Just would rather have a bsd or other Williams 7-11 games.
Don't want cash. Just trades. I also have no problem holding it if I can't get what I'm ideally looking for
Anyone interested in a gottlieb spin out and pro football. Would like to trade them for something early solid state. Would sell outright also if any interest
I really want a bsd if anyone has one or knows anyone looking to part ways with one
Bride and party monsters. Wouldn't really give me any information on the games at all. Offered a deposit on them for when he gets back to town and he just said he might have to sell to make room for others if he finds them. I did ask if he would make a package deal and that I would more than likely take either one either way but would prefer both.
Any want to trade something comparable for a black rose? Full comet led, Titan rubbers, and new canon assembly and motor.
I finally made a purchase from him and they let me plug in the game I purchased as well as play that creature they had.
Quoted from Russell:
Does anyone know of anyone that might be interested in transporting games up and down the Front Range for $$? I don't mean a shipping company. Could it be an interesting little side business for someone in the community? That would sure make it easier to trade games between us. Especially speaking from someone in Colorado Springs. The part of making a deal is the pain of traveling, packing and transporting.
I'm always willing to pick up games for people if they need it down south. I actually just did that tonight!
I've actually been considering letting go of some games for trade. Not really interested on selling outright but would like to apply trades for a good A list game. The games I am thinking are:
And possibly paragon.
All games are clean and play
Quoted from jar155:
I'm coming in for Pinball Showdown and I'm looking for a good candidate for a re-theme. Does anybody have any games (prefer it to be classic SS or newer) that are fit for a re-theme? Obviously condition isn't much of a factor. I can pick up during the weekend of the show. Now is the time to get rid of that blown out game you know you're never going to actually restore...
I have a Mata Hari and a night rider I'm gonna be selling soon. Both are decently clean though
Quoted from VacFink:
I have a Jokerz in Pueblo that needs some board/wiring work. I can only find Strauss Amusements. Any other recommendations or experience with their support.
I have the awful hum, the adjust error that is common and that a new battery holder and batteries didn't fix, a couple wacky wiring 'solutions' that a previous owner must have tried, and one GI plug that needs replaced (cut, but not burnt)
Any recommendations or suggestions is appreciated. I had hoped to fix myself, but its been sitting around for years, and I'd rather try my hand at fixing a single problem from a working machine. I'm over my head as a noob to tackle all that's wrong here on my first try out.
I can come by and look at it. Let me know when works best for you
I think those 4 games are the ones that were just for sale in WY for next to nothing. Looks to be the same guy that buys games and realists them right away for 3x what he paid for them
I sent out an email also on it. I wouldn't mind having a second pinbot to put out on location.
I would like to buy something this weekend. What's for sale out there!?
Does anyone have experience with working on an Ice Cold Beer? This things about to become flaming hot firewood
I still have my banzai run that I’d like to trade or sell. I recently clear coated the upper play field with PPG DC2000 clear to fix a bad Mylar issue it had.
I agree that the current incentives aren’t worth it. If you are trying to have the show grow you have to have games there to do it. Give people a reason to want to bring games. It really bums me out that if I bring 2 games, my dad or myself still have to pay for a weekend pass for the event. Where is the incentive in that? I think we can all agree that it’s no easy job moving games around. Breaking down, moving, hauling, and driving 2 hours with 4 games isn’t exactly easy work for 2 passes. We had more incentives driving 12 hours with 2 games going to TPF like mentioned above. You can’t have an event unless people bring games. I’ve almost contemplated skipping the showdown and just fly out to the Tacoma show or something instead if I’m going to spend the same amount of money.
You want to have a big show, give people a reason to help you IMHO.
A pinball show is no where near the same as a car show. Plus most car show registrations are not more than $20 and usually you get a decent goodie bag.
Yeah I’d have no problems bringing 20 games but it’s just not worth it and too much work.
I’ve got $600 and Ghostbusters Pro this weekend. Someone trade me something comparable
Looking for a Williams system 7 head or complete cab that isn’t beat. Also an early Bally ss Head as well
