How much and where?

#52 7 years ago
Quoted from DougPiranha:

I have been restoring this one and I am finally getting ready to test the game on the workbench.
I have a HUO IJ and this restored one...hard to decide which to keep, probably the HUO. If so I will sell this one.

Some pics of the progress.

Well, I'm buying. Keep me updated. Where are you located?

#53 7 years ago

St. Louis

<-----Is my location not showing?

Yes sir it is. I'm guess I'm just half-blind.

#55 7 years ago

I thought I hit some private button or something

#56 7 years ago

Is this your first pin or have you just not listed yours?

#57 7 years ago

Pin owning virgin. this is his first.

#58 7 years ago

What a nice machine. Heck of a first game, if you keep it clean it will last forever!

#59 7 years ago

....well, call me a monkey. We knocked $250 off the price for that. Thought it was standard, because there were holes for screws, and things for it in test mode. Ok, well, anyone want a pretty nice IJ at 4.5k, before I buy the board and my sales guy insists the price goes back up to $4750?

Ummm...I'm interested. Is it in Cleveland though?

Doug, keep that in St. Louis! Sorry Alex, I have to support my local market.

#62 7 years ago

Alex called it out first. Looks like he's willing to pay anything too. Shipping? Bah!

That's right...I get first dibs. It's coming to NC!

#64 7 years ago

nice! I knew your persistence would pay off. Looks like a really nice one

#65 7 years ago

Actually, I told Doug I was interested in it months ago. If I knew how to search this forum better I'd find the specific thread. Anyway, I wasn’t actually offering to buy it here, just was hoping to keep pins in the St. Louis market. You know that’s fewer I have to pay shipping for when I’m ready to buy. I am sort of holding out for the Resident Evil pin that Stern hopefully releases later this year.

No. No. No. Erik.

We'll see. I just sent a PM.

You know I still want yours.

St. Louis may be a ways off for me :-/ depends on the condition/price

Add gas, time...etc.

Sometimes you end up paying more than if you had bought a pricier local one.

Alex, that's pretty much the conclusion I came to a little while back. Unless it’s just a super rare title that only comes up once in a blue moon (which I cannot afford anyway), it’s worth paying a little more to see it in person and forgo shipping costs and hassle. Anyway, I'm not going to block your purchase either way. I know getting a pin (especially your first) is exciting. Good luck!

#69 7 years ago

Maybe you guys could meet up at the Louisville show?

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

I forgot about that doh!

Your more than welcome to come by and see it. I am trying to get $6500 for it. A local high end restorer said its worth more but, I don't have the reputation to ask more. It has a few things that stop it from being as good as the ones that look too good to play.

Its very nice though and compared to the ones 3.5-5k, the increase of ~2k more gets the buyer alot of labor and parts... imho

Once I get it running, I will do a video and more detailed pics.

#71 7 years ago

Doug, I'll bet its looks amazing. At this time I'm going to hang on to my limited pin funds for the hopeful Resident Evil pin that Stern is rumored to release this fall. Pretty much my dream pin (at least in title). I just hope it’s not loaded with cheap action figures or I'll be kicking myself for not grabbing the IJ you have. Had this been 4 months ago and I hadn’t already picked up RFM and caught wind of a possible RE, I’d be stopping by your place for negotiations.

I heard that they are just going to place the DVD boxes upright in the upper Playfield as targets.

Maybe BR can help you out with a IJ, but for now, patience is key.

Does he own one he wants to sell?

It is. We do ship, though! It's ususally about 300 bux.

$300 is pretty standard.

#77 7 years ago

Shameless self-bump in hopes that the pinball fairy will find me a seller.

#78 7 years ago

There has to be one out there...

#79 7 years ago

Well, what's wrong with the one we have for sale? I can still probably get our sales guy to sell it to you for $4500...

That's a damn good price. Will you pm me some info and pics?

#81 7 years ago

I'm really looking for a collectors quality or near mint machine - but if the price is right...the price is right.

IndianaPwns-Did you change your name or something?,I missed that,I might do the same.
Back on topic,You have your sights set,don't cave in-keep it in the sights.

#84 7 years ago

I would kill a man for a treasure-cove restored IJ.

#85 7 years ago

How much do those High End machines go for? I think 10-12K. I have seen a few of Chad Kellers pristine restorations and I would be worried about rolling a ball across the surface they look so good

But I guess if the owner was dead, the price might come down some.
