I know this is a FS thread but I am looking for Metallica Pro or LE. Since this is the only Colorado thread I found in the last year do you think we should make this the colorado buy sell thread. What do you think OP?

Plan to pay cash but have really nice IJ Williams with the full brass treatment that I would trade. PM me for the story on this game.

After I find Metallica, looking for Getaway

Quoted from Switch:

I couldn't even get that guy to send me pics of the Black Rose he had. Talked to him on two different occasions just trying to get photos since I live 5 hours away. Didn't seem like customer service or making a sale was to high on their list.

I live 5 minutes away and play pool at the Mirage bar upstairs. But this place is strange, a bunch of people playing role playing games when I went in to play. No big deal about what they do but it was like the bar scene from Animal house when we walked it. Nice enough but I'm not going back to play. If you want me to look at a game PM me and I'll make time to check it out but I can tell you right now way over priced from what was there a few months ago.

There are several of us that have posted in this thread that have bought games from Gilbert. I bought a few A list games about 6-8 years ago for $2500 each. Best choice I ever made in pinball. Back then you had to pay before he left or send him USPS money orders if he found one while traveling.

You haven't lived until you experience giving a postal worker $2500 in cash to get 5 $500 money orders and then send them overnight to some hotel in Wisconsin.

I regret the games I passed on (TZ $2500 and MB for $3500, the CC mentioned below) because I couldn't imagine paying that much cash for a game you didn't see yet. But I met others that swore by him and back then he delivered every time for me.

My first 2 games had matching boards that I never had to work on and played 100% when I got them. One had a great playfield and beat cabinet. One had a beat cabinet and great playfield.

6-7 years ago he had MB for $4000 and CC for $5000 at RMPS and they didn't sell. Miss those days.

The final game I bought from him, he just called me out of the blue and told me he found an AFM and he knew I was looking for one. He said he'd just bring it by and I could play it first and pay him then if I wanted it, no need to send the USPS money order.

Now his prices seem crazy I agree. Just wish I had the cash 10 years ago.

Quoted from dankme:

he has 2 pet wolves that you usually get to meet as well!

My daughters still ask about Gilbert. They would both test play the game he brought but really wanted to see which of the 2 wolves he brought by.

That was before he fell ill. We haven't seen him since.

I have not done any work on this game, it has been modded with brass coin door, hinges, side rails, and lock bar. Mirror blades, LED display, and Pinball Pro sub woofer.

Hey fellow Front Range pinheads. I am putting a game up for sales on the Market this week and wanted to give the local crowd that has helped me a heads up a few days early. I have also been on the pin scene since Firepower so I know know high dollar pins like this one deserve a lot a scrutiny so feel free to say what you think.

Monster Bash that is my 5th complete restore of WPC games.. $9300 with ColorDMD, $8900 without.

Come see it in Littleton 80128. I expected to keep it when I started but am playing all my 80s games more so would see what happens.

Game was completely disassembled and all metal parts tumbled that would fit in my ultra-vibe. All other metal parts re-grained or polished depending on the part.

Was stripped and completely sanded, repaired with bondo and repainted. I did not replace the backbox text on this game like usual as it was very nice but feathered the paint in around it.
• Bottom and inside of cabinet sanded
• All wiring bundled removed and soaked/cleaned in bathtub
• New vinyl tubing and ground braid throughout cabinet
• New 5 piece second generation art from Planetary was applied

• New launch button
• New flipper buttons
• New colorDMD
• New DMD plastic from pinbits
• Original speakers and speaker panel
• New cash box cover
• NVRAM for CPU added
• New glass on order
Every single part was removed cleaned and tumbled or replaced.
New IPB first run playfield that I bought over 10 years ago when they came out. This was touched up, had the shooter lane groove corrected, and was clear coated by Chris Hutchins . Playfield re-assembled by me.
• All solenoids removed soaked/cleaned and had labels replaced with planetary pinball labels.
• All three wiring harnesses removed and soaked/cleaned in bathtub
• All metal parts tumbled
• Monster Table / Updown bank completely disassembled and rebuilt with new gears
• Drac disassembled and cleaned but I didn’t open the gear box.
• All solenoid mechanisms completely disassembled and rebuilt
• New slingshot switches
• All stand-up switches replaced except for the Dracula switches.
• New faces for the Dracula targets.
• New ramp flaps including the up-down bank flap
• One new pinbits auto-eddy board and sensor cable
• All new pop-bumper caps, rings, bodies, lamps, and springs.
• All new plastic set, plastic posts and lane guides, and flipper bats
• Complete LED for playfield and backbox
• Kerry protector for mosh pit
• Cliffy protector for ball launch and shooter lane
• Figures kept original
• All flaky micro-switches replaced and tested

280 plays since restore as of tonight. Lock bar has some fine scratches. This is a German game that was re-imported.

I have links to the restore. Shoot me a PM if you want to see even if no interest in game.

Open to trades for Tron, Defender, CV, Getaway so make an offer.

A little OT but who do you ship with to sell a game on pallet here in Denver area? Trying to help a buddy who is out of town. I would do the prep work for seller.

While you are at it does anyone sell play field glass that follows this thread?

Quoted from Wyopinball:

Ok so how do you get a current list of pins for sale through Mirage, I am asking since I missed the Fishtales, I don't want to miss another of the three machines I am hunting.

Last I talked to him in person, he said he keeps his facebook page current with a list of games. I didn't check to see if that is the case today, but it was when I got home right after he told me that a few months ago. I live 10 minutes away and play pool at the Mirage and stop by if they are open when I am there so shoot me a note if you want to get the lowdown on games.

Quoted from Mr68:

I will be shipping my boards to Rob Anthony from now on unless some of you have a suggestion. I also could use a reliable tech recommendation or two. PM’s welcomed.

Hi Kim

I used Rob on a WPC 95 A/V board back when they were unobtainium and I wanted someone more talented than myself. So he is a good choice. Is he coming to the show this year ?

Dan Gutchess keeps both 1UPs in tip top shape so you might see if he gets that far North.

#2226 2 years ago

I have an MB and a Firepower playfield that are good for wall art only. $75 each, can bring to RMPS tonight or Sunday if you want them. Leaving at 1:00 for the show today.

Quoted from nighttaco:

Anyone seen a Metallica road case or Master of Puppets LE up for sale in a while? Interested in one but it depends what they're selling for....

There is a monsters for sale in AZ that looks to be a great price. I looked for a year in 2015 for a premium that close and never found it. Bought my pro and don't need the hassle of 2 sales for the difference.

Quoted from fosaisu:

I'm about to order a Stern Spike shaker motor kit from Pinball Life.

Damn I just ordered one this morning. No kidding. Wish I thought of that. It has already been shipped or I'd try to do something.

Quoted from sethi_i:

I finally bought myself my first machine...NIB MMr with color DMD. Got it from GEX in Denver. It was just what I remembered.

Great choice! I worked in a Williams flavored arcade in the 80s (Firepower, Black Knight, Both Defenders, Robotron, Joust,) and played on location since and remember MM as the last good game before I had my first kid. I went through the closure of the Williams pinball division but didn't remember much until I played MM again at a local bar in the neighborhood I just moved to. Totally revived the feelings. I bought a beater Firepower as my first so good job on an awesome first pin. Welcome.

I have a USED please note USED MB plastics set plus other stuff like pop caps and some posts for free if you pick up. From a restore I did a few years ago and want some shop space. I think only the shooter lane plastic is broken but could be wrong. I'm in 80128

Quoted from whthrs166:

I have always used STI. Shipped the machine on the legs. No Pallet. My theory; a pallet invites a fork lift, a forklift invite disaster...

I was at STI's location downtown Denver last year for a screw up and they were moving a pinball machine on a forklift. FYI

Quoted from whthrs166:

Was the game on a pallet? They have moved probably 30 games for me on the legs. Never had an issue. I used their White Glove Service. They also have a station to station service which requires a Pallet.

No, it was head down and the forks were carrying it with legs on. Was pretty wobbly. I'll never forget, it was my game I was there to pickup.
