We are officially moving to Denver (western centennial). I've decided to use this as an excuse to refresh my pinball collection so plan on selling most of my pins before we leave chicago but will be looking to buy new ones soon after we move in at the end of June. So if anyone plans to be putting anything on the market, give me a shout. Depending on whether all my current ones get sold (already sold 1, have 2 going out today, and in talks on at least 1 of the 3 remaining), I'll probably be in the market to pick up 2-3 pins.

Looking forward to meeting the pinball community in the area and hopefully will be picking up some new games.

Quoted from ramegoom:

I would suggest you bring your pins from Chicago. They're far more plentiful in the Chicago area compared to up here in CO. I moved from Lake County two years ago, brought all my machines, and sooooo glad I did. Moved to the Ft. Collins area, north of Denver.
Bring them with you, no matter how much hassle it is. You won't regret it.

Well that's depressing....although may help me justify hanging on to WCS and HS2. I was kind of hoping that with a major show every June, there would be ample opportunity to pick up new pins. Is there not usually much for sale at the Pinball Showdown? I know when I walk around the MGC in Milwaukee every year I always have a bunch of pins I'd like to bring home with me if I had the space.

Anyway appreciate the help.

Quoted from bemmett:

Getting to know the local pinheads/collectors is #1 priority for buying/selling here. I buy/sell games regularly and it is rare mine ever hit the forums or craigslist or any public offering, usually bought/sold by locals as I contact groups of people I know first in CO and close surrounding areas. You will already be in with the owner Kim up here at Pinball Jones, she is a Cardinals superfan!
That being said bring that WCS out here and sell it to me instead. I know of a local HS2 you could probably buy out here if you did ever want it again.

Nice! Will certainly have to check out Pinball Jones.

The WCS may be for sale at some point. We've had it a while, but probably will fill the open spots in the collection first. However, its a hard one to sell as its one game I never understood why it seems to be priced so low. I think its comparable to a lot of pins you see in the $4000s, but it usually is closer to $2000 to $2500. To a little bit lesser extent, I think the same thing about HS2. Along with Fishtales, I'd put those 3 as the best bang for your buck pins among the Williams/Bally DMDs.

apparently I'm in line behind you on that fish tales. I told the guy to let me know if he doesn't sell it Saturday morning and I'll come by. Its priced fairly, but I'm not getting into a bidding war.

Quoted from Wickerman2:

right on...someone has "already offered more than asking price"

if you end up picking it up, just let me know if you decide to move it again. It's the top pin on my kid's wishlist so I at least gotta make a good faith effort to pick one up....

Anywhere local to get electronic components? I need a FQP13N10L transistor. Microcenter doesn't list it on their website and I don't know of anywhere else to look.

If anyone in the area happens to have an extra one laying around, I'd be happy to trade you 12 pack of your favorite beer

Quoted from DNO:

Game Exchange carries a lot more than you might think, I'd try to give them a call at least.
And it is actually local

good call; they had exactly what I needed. Gotta love not having to wait for a part in the mail to get a machine back up and running!

I have a Hurricane that seems to have some power issues where it resets once in a while (1 out of 20 games or so). Fully functioning, i think the game would sell for around $2K. Dealing with power issues is probably beyond my ability level, so I'm wondering if anyone is interested in purchasing it at a discount in current condition. Alternatively, any techs in the area interested in repair work (just south of Denver)? PM if interested in discussing.
