Bad Cats - SOLD......
Quoted from Dano:
Granted that most of these threads are negative (say it ain't so) but the fact that he wants pretty close to premium prices to buy sight unseen is kinda silly. I believe I've been talked out of buying from this seller.
Can u say flipper. Premium prices for routed, unshopped, unworking games. It is entertaining to hear him keep saying he's been doing this for forty years - ahhh really - who cares dude...
Quoted from jalpert:
I bought that robocop. It looked really nice. I'll get it next week. If I'm not happy with it he said he'd refund me so no risk.
I'm in the mood to shop a game, not sure I'm gunna play it much, I feel like working on

Quoted from outcida:
I want to buy a Ghostbusters Premium. It will be my first NIB Stern. Obviously I want the best price and I plan on calling around. I've heard lots of great things about JJ at GE but then there's the whole sales tax thing.
I figured I would ask the locals who do you buy from and why?
I checked around for a Metallica Pro awhile back and everyone was pretty much the same for lift gate service to the driveway. Unfortunately I would agree that for buying local the tax does kill it. I guess if you ran into problems buying local might have an advantage, but I would just work with your distributor and stern...
Yep, check them out. They do great work......

Cool - I'll come check it out! Any good breweries / bars close by?
Quoted from InfiniteLives:
he isnt on pinside that I know of but they guy who works on the games at Pinball Jones had one for sale awhile ago, I think he still has it. It was at the Showdown last year. I can ask him if you'd like.
That game was incredible - pretty much like new. Unfortunately I don't think it will be cheap, but worth it if you have the money...
Quoted from Dano:
I figured it was overpriced with the VE being available for so much less. I was wondering what mods are on it and the ad isn't worded in a very friendly manner so I'm not sure it's worth dealing with the seller.
Train Topper, Speaker light kit w/ acrylic lightning bolts, overlay for speaker panel, stickers on ramps, custom shooter rod. Just have him take a pic of the playfield and I can tell you the rest....
Quoted from sethi_i:
Does anyone know anything about these pins on CL? They're all priced too high, in my opinion. But that's not unusual for CL. I don't see any of them listed here. I've been in the game for 4 months, so any experienced advice on apparent condition and pricing is appreciated. I really don't care for mods (ColorDMD excepted) so their value to me is negligible.
IMO I think the Star trek is a good deal. It's got a new playfield plus the labor it costs to change it, and tons of extra's. The Twilight zone is priced ok - it's got pinsound which is actually pretty cool. The Addams family is priced a little high, but is an a list game. You could always ask the seller if he'll remove the color dmds which will save you $400 bucks. Hope this helps... At the end of the day if your interested you still have to check them out in person and see what you think.
Quoted from Mathazar:
Ah, a known quantity. Don't need that drama or aggravation....my search continues!
You should hit up hyperspace arcade, gex, or anyone with a Craigslist ad that has a bunch of arcade games in a warehouse setting in the background. Just tell them to be on the lookout for old arcade cabinets. Also check out 'x-arcade' for your controller...
Quoted from ryanwanger:
In the last year or so, I've probably had four or five people ask me to help them "buy a game".
It's always first time buyers, and I can see how they might want a helping hand since most perceive Craigslist or a distant seller on Ebay to be their only option.
I've got enough going on maintaining my own games and moving them around that I don't want to start doing something like that on the side. But at the same time, it would be great to be able to help these people!
I think it would involve figuring out a machine or range of machines they are interested in, finding the machine, and doing delivery/setup. Maybe in some ways, it would be like being a realtor for people buying pinball machines. Is there anyone out there who would want to provide this as a service? I think you could make a little bit of money on the side doing this for newbies and charging by the hour.
I've had people ask me this. Problem is you do the leg work, finally find a pin, and then when it comes to buying the people back out. These have all been friends so no big deal. Just make sure the people are really ready to drop a couple grand on a pin or it becomes frustrating....
Quoted from PromoJoe23:
Not a for sale post...but moving out here from SoCal and how in the world do you guys get your pins in the basement? Anyone know where to rent a stair climber thingy? I am in Castle Pines.
Get an appliance dolly from harbor freight and enlist the help of a friend. Buy the friend some beer
