Got a nice JunkYard for sale CQ with mods. PM for more pics.
Give Kurt at Hemisheres Amusements 630-792-8910 a call. I bought my game through him and he not only got me a phenomenal deal, but plenty of support after the sale. Great guy to buy from.
They just sold one at GEX for $3200 one of the nicest originals I have seen. All original cabinet no fade couple small scratches no fish wear heck even the boat plastic was good.
Quoted from Boondocker:
Who is the new craigslist seller in Dacono?
Some good quotes:
"I do repair in site for people that tip, ain't cheap so don't be CHEAP , if you tip the guy that bring u a hamburger and you don't tip your pinball tech you don't need to call me"
"For the fagglipps that's flagging my swords of fury add I want to thank you , while u where flagging my add and I was re listing it , it sold today , this is what's happen when you try to fuck with me and my karma world , I'll rip your fucking asshole apart son ! Thanks again for the sale karma Too bad you don't have the balls to call or see me in the eye fool
You will find freaks in the dark corners of this hobby. Heck some times you don't even have to look. I find similarities with the needle issue on the 16th street mall.
Hey Guys there is a dude that this acquiring pics of games on DCL and trying to scam folks with the pics as a legitimate sale.
His handle is Phillip Gold. If you get an email from him trash it. Check out thread "Gold Scam In Denver" for details on him and what he is doing.
The price is whatever the market will bare. There is a new crowd for pinball machines now and they have deep pockets. Great if you want to sell not so great if you want to buy.
Quoted from Mr68:
appreciate your question but I'm not sure how to answer. I feel I'm at a crossroad in my life I need to reinvent myself.
Yes, I'm strongly considering leaving the hobby, no I won't be leaving completely but then again, maybe I will. Clear as mud right?
I just feel it's time for me to downsize and as my collection gets smaller, I'll evaluate whether to stay or go.
Anything you see of mine for sale now or up coming will be in excellent condition to HUO to collectors quality. Some of my games I have owned for well over a decade with very low mileage. My prices are rarely set in stone and I'm always glad to negotiate with local Pinsiders. Feel free to come kick the tires and chat.
Keeping Lebowski? I did the same thing at the beginning of this year Kim. I fully intended to sell em all! (17) Got down to the last two and couldnt do it! I kept SS HUO and MM. Now with your CC and recently added AFMR LE Im back in it!
Quoted from RobKnapp:
My father Herman Knapp was KIA in 1967 in the Vietnam War (Operation Rolling Thunder)I was 3 years old . Herm was 37
My Mother Helene Knapp was the National Coordinator of National League of POW/MIA Families in 1972-1974
I will take you up on free shipping . My Father and my Mother earned it for me.
Thanks for sharing! Thanks for your sacrifice! It will be remembered...
Quoted from Zaquar:
Definitely a keeper if you have room....deciding how many points to bet on the fight purse after you're the pub champ is a cool feature I wasn't expecting
CP is one of the most unique pinball games every designed. I think it's cool that the game allows you to cheat by being able to knock out a boxer with a Smart Punch! Collecting Smart Punches will allow a less than stellar pinball player (me) to defeat the later boxers to get to the championship bouts. Then once you start betting your points the real fun begins! The game is a must for a bar-cade IMHO. The only drawback to this game is that most people do not know how to play it.
Quoted from sethi_i:
I saw his ad in December and decided the same thing. For less than $1000 more I got a new one with color DMD.
Understood, I am sure that was the right move for you. However, there have been a lot of people wanting an original instead of a remake and they will pay that. It seems some folks don't want the remake new or otherwise and prefer the original because they believe that the originals are better games and will hold their long term value better than the remakes.
Quoted from mountaingamer:
Wow - I wonder how many sellers respond to all the “wanted huo games still in production” adds you see on Denver cl??? That kind of crap clogs up cL imho.
What I have experienced is most of the "Wanted To Buy" ads are people that want to buy but don't want to pay anything. I found myself thinking "why doesn't he just buy the one listed"
Quoted from RobKnapp:
I have my reasons on both accounts. Personal attacks on my profile photo in jest or through PM I have recently received .Yes a Colorado pinside member actually sent me a PM with a negative critique on my profile photo really blew my mind on how insensitive and inconsiderate this individual was. And to then thumbs up is stupid and petty.And not kind or called for. Really . Who cares. I realize it is kind of self absorbed & absurd. I do not care it is me. My personalty . I came back from the brink of (death) from addiction . I should not even be alive . Some one "Up there like me ".Thank the lord. My photo is testament to my sobriety and my physique at age 50 to get my life together and I am damn proud of my self and not afraid to declare it to the world. I do not appreciate your negativity bias and lack of support guys . This forum bums me out. As I am a sensitive individual .
For the record, I PMd him with an apology. I was not aware he had a WTB ad. I also deleted my post.
Quoted from ebrenner87:
So props to Dan!
No Kidding! Just talking to him about the show at memory lane makes me think he is one in a million for what he does to put that show on every year. From what I have heard around the country at what can happen to these shows once the people that put them on decide they are done, we need to be really thankful for Dan and what he does. This show would most likely be dead if he were to decide he is done....
