I have one in a storage facility down the street from my house. Mint condition, $6000.
Quoted from 5280wzrd:
I don't get the thinking here. I understand it is a big undertaking to drag games out of your basement or game room to bring to the show. Its really not about the money to me. I do it to share my games and give back to the pinball community. Its like having a classic car that just sits in your garage, only you appreciate it. I truly enjoy sharing my efforts of bringing a game back from the dead and watching others enjoy it. I'm sure all of you Pinsiders will agree, there is nothing like going to a show and seeing that one game you never see, and its tuned great and you get to spend the weekend playing it! The person that brought that game most likely did it out of passion for Pinball, not because they got in free. That's what this should be about.
The Denver show is in line with many other shows around the country for bring games incentives. Tacoma is 1-2 games for one pass as well. have to bring 3-4 for two passes, same as Golden State.
If your griping about money and you own multiple games, you probably should find another hobby. Aint nothin cheep about pinball... Shouldn't a hobby be about passion? Any hobby you need to put effort into to truly have it become rewarding. If your in it for the money, its not a hobby!
Too many people want to bitch about every little detail they don't like. BE HAPPY pinball and these shows exist! Support your local shows, Help them to succeed. None of these shows owners are killing it on running these shows. They do it for pinball! Try running one of these events your self and see how many hours you put into it, then put up with the people that just want to complain. We are truly lucky these people have thick skins and continue to have a passion for Pinball and continue year after year to make these shows as great as they are able to. Put your self in these peoples shoes!
Sorry to hi-jack this thread... Sorry for venting, Ill get of my soap box now.
Pinside is way to toxic these days, its sad.
I guess this is why my dumbass hauled 7 games 9 hours (one way) last year to the show mostly by myself. No wait, it was for the goodie bag!
If anyone is interested in a Pinbot, I have a nice one I can bring to the showdown.
I know him. Quality collection of games and a great seller. He's actually the OP of this thread. Send him a PM.

Looking for a White Water pin, any condition, Colorado or surrounding states. I have an ad running on craigslist, but figured there may be some that don't check craigslist anymore.
I have recently missed out on two potential deals trying to get one. One turned out to be a scam from an ad on Mr. Pinball, and most recently one today in CA where I thought the deal was done and the seller ended up selling locally last minute. Missing out on two in the past month has really made be obsess about it. Who knows, maybe its not meant to be.
We just had a legit one go for sale for $3500 here, made me cry that I missed it.
The "white glove service" from STI you think you're paying for is bullshit. I had a pick-up from STI for a TOM recently. Not only did they completely leave me hanging on the day they scheduled but when they showed up the next day, 2 people. To move a pinball machine. One old lady who was about 5 ft. tall and some big kid who looked like it was his 2nd day on the job. They had no shrink wrap, no way to move it themselves, and no clue. I had to show them everything and help load it into the truck myself. FOR CLOSE TO $500 and only 12 hours away!
I say go U-ship like my buddy does. Half the price and the same service.
