I am about to pick up a Final Voyage ST Pro tonight which I have owned this title a few times in the past (sold due to bills etc). Just wondering who else has done this before?
Anyone get the very machine you sold?

#2 1 year ago

Swords of Fury Ive owned three different ones, ACDC twice, and I recently bought back the same High Speed I sold 5 years ago. I imagine its not that uncommon amongst us crazy pinball collectors.

#3 1 year ago

Sometimes when I hunt for projects, I end up with two of the same title, then mix and match the parts to get the nicest one out of the two (no, I don't part out the second one--it lives on).

I still have a bunch of new parts leftover from when I refurbished two Close Encounters games, so if I see a project for a decent price, I may pick another one up just to use up the remaining parts that I already bought.

Did you buy the High Speed from the person you sold it to? Must feel like a family member who has been away coming home. LOL.

BoP was the first game I bought. I sold it and then later bought another so I could install the BoP 2.0 kit. That's the only game I've rebought, but that's kind of a unique situation.

#6 1 year ago

I usually end up with the same title because of trades.
Sometimes they don’t even make it to the house and sold again.

#7 1 year ago

Oh yeah, many.

#8 1 year ago

I sold my Dipsy Doodle after a couple years of ownership. Then bought it back after a friend owned it for a couple years. That’s the only time I’ve owned the same title more than once.

#9 1 year ago

I will have no shortage of games to play because JJP is about to call to pick up my WW SE.

#10 1 year ago

I have bought Shadow twice for personal collection. I have had 2 eight ball deluxe, but only because one was $200.

#11 1 year ago

For me it was trying to decide which pins I liked the best in a small collection. Also when you sale or trade a game and realize you made the wrong move. For me this was Afm, it took me over 5 years to find another restored one.

Afm x2
Wwf Royal Rumble x2

#12 1 year ago

I sold and bought back the same Theatre of Magic. I never thought I would own the title again, but I put a lot of work into the game, and when I was offered the chance to pick it up I knew it was a solid deal, so I jumped.

I would probably own another Whirlwind if one came up at a reasonable price (yeah right).

#13 1 year ago

Guilty!

(Sort of)

1. Sold GOT LE, bought GOT Pro
2. Sold SW Pro, bought SW Premium
3. Traded MET Pro, bought Met Premium

Missed them all and bought within the year of letting go, but at least all were slightly different versions.

#14 1 year ago

Skateball is the only one for me... so far

#15 1 year ago

Why wait?

Yep! My son was pissed at me when I sold it years ago, so when the new owner started having trouble with it I bought it back from him. Sold it to him for 500, bought it back for 800 five years later.

Do you intend to time travel back from the future so you can play side-by-side against yourself?

#18 1 year ago

I regret selling my very nice Magic City (trading it actually), and would still like to get another nice one- anyone in Chicago area want to sell?

I actually did for the first time just the other day. World Cup Soccer was one of the first games I ever owned and I just bought another one. Not the same one, the new one is nicer than my original.

#21 1 year ago

More with vids, but I've owned 3 Black Knights and 2 Gorgars. I think I've owned 5 Centipedes, 3 720s, 4 Asteroids and 2 Ms Pacmans.

#22 1 year ago

I had a really rough project Dracula, sold it since I didn't have the skills necessary to finish it. Came across a nicer one and now that's a keeper

#23 1 year ago

Yes.
Star Trek Premium.
Fantastic game!

#24 1 year ago

Sold a JP a few years ago and now im looking to get another

#25 1 year ago

F-14 Tomcat. Sold it against my son's wishes. Now it's back and forgot how much I missed it.

#26 1 year ago

I ( /my parents ) owned a Spanish Eyes that got sold sometime between 1999/2000.

In 2017 I regained contact with the buyer, who had lost interest and wanted his living room space back.

It's the same machine, but it sure doesn't feel like it now that I've put some work/cleaning/Comet-sunlights into it!

#27 1 year ago

I tried a quick search before I posted this with no results. Its all in the search verbage. None the less, enjoy

#28 1 year ago

I learned my lesson with cars. I sold my '64 Corvette coupe in 1980 and then couldn't afford to replace it when gen2 'vette prices soared. Not selling any of my pins because I don't want to have to overpay to get them back.

Firepower for me. I owned FP and FP2 at the same time sold both together. Bought another set a year later from a different guy. Then I picked up another FP a week later. So now I have two forepowers to redo.
Hardtop or what till cpr digital?

#34 1 year ago

I’ve owned Williams IJ 9 times, all different pins. Most have been projects and plans to make a super nice one. I’ve sold two projects and the others were whole when sold.

Also owned TOTAN 6 times, sold one project and bought it back. When I finish the current project I have the other project sold.

#35 1 year ago

I presently own 2 copies of Flash, but I'm thinking of trying a re-theme.

Pins are like children.

You kick them out.
You miss them.
You bring them back.
You get pissed off and kick 'em out again.
You miss them ...

#37 1 year ago

I owned a GOT pro for years sold it a while back and just picked up an LE...is that the same

#38 1 year ago

This mentality is the same as going into a school and saying all these topics have been discussed before.

Sometimes a new discussion reveals new information not previously stated. Not everyone comes into the forums and does a search to find an old topic to talk about.

#39 1 year ago

Heck yes. DW and TH and WOZ come to mind...

#40 1 year ago

I've owned a bunch of titles multiple times.
Sinbad x3
Klondike x2 - Just got back from Alaska and wouldn't mind another one.
Kickoff x2
Teacher's Pet x3
Spanish Eyes x2
4 Bagger x2
Flip Flop x2
Grand Prix x3

Then there are games where you own variants of the same. AAB or player variation.
Space Mission/Space Odyssey
Hot Line/Big Strike
Pop a card/Drop a card
Wing Ding/Zig Zag

Purchased the second just to get the spare backglass the first one was missing and to help me troubleshoot the first as well. Both are fully operational and just have to figure out what to do with the spare.

It can wait till after I roll one or two other projects out the door.

Quoted from JY64:

piss on someone

Now that you've tried your hand at mind-reading and failed -- I'd look in the mirror and ask, "What does it say about me, that my first assumption about this poster's intentions was negative?" Hmmm...

Did it cross either of your minds that the intention was to be helpful to the OP? -- thanks, Internet!

Quoted from Jasontaps:

tried a quick search

Cool -- yeah this is the only link I could find to help you with ideas...

I’ve bought shadow twice. Wouldn’t mind having a few titles again.

#46 1 year ago

GB and NGG, and sold them again. I'd like a Stern Star Wars again, but I have to keep telling myself that I sold these for a reason.
