MY GOD MY EYES!!!
lol seriously though that's awesome. I just recently got a Night Moves as well and it needs some love, but it's gonna have to wait a bit. Don't regret getting it at ALL...have wanted one for years.

Lol thanks I want to use it a bat signal one day she's a keeper!

I've already sold a couple I didn't think I'd let go of, so nothing in the collection is permanent. The one I might now have the hardest time selling is my very fine condition Hawaiian Beauty since it is probably irreplaceable. Still, when I eventually retire and downsize...

TSPP goes up for sale when I finish Super Duper Mega Extreme wizard mode.

13 years and counting ...

At least you know there's a good handful of locals that are interested in nice EM's! It's definitely wierd enough that I'd be interested, and I've yet to own a woodrail!

#105 1 year ago

Thought I did , but no . I guess anything is for sale .

#106 1 year ago

The games I restored from top to bottom which actually is my current collection. Something about putting all those hours and work into the restoration makes it hard to sell them. Am on my way to finishing my first restore and moving to my next project, TAF over the summer.

Anyone in DFW who does EM cabinet repaints? I have the stencils but not the time--or ability to do it decently!

For me it’s Bounty Hunter. My first pin bought back in 1993, and to say I have a love hate relationship with it is an understatement. I sometimes wish it was something cooler, like Fathom... but it’s just a street level style of pin with no multi ball, no ramps, no spinners, etc.
The art is really cool, theme is decent, and gameplay is better than it should be, but it’s system 80b which I really don’t like, and the cabinet material they used competely blows. (It’s fiber board junk)

Bury me in my TZ. Tons of time and money in it and it's my favorite game. Wouldn't trade it for a NIB remake.

#110 1 year ago

I have a feeling that the new Iron Maiden is going to be going on alot of peoples never will sell list also.

#111 1 year ago
Quoted from pinlink:

Can I buy them at the prices you told your wife you paid?

Yes you can, I tell her I pay more so I can slip a little spending money in my pocket .I figure she'll be mad either way might as well make it work in my favor.

#112 1 year ago

I would not want to sell my Haunted House. It was my first machine, and technically it cost me nothing. Not to mention that it is in great cosmetic condition so I would never want to get rid of it. However, if a situation came up and I needed money for something important concerning my daughter, it would go in a heartbeat. She comes before anything else.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. It's awesome but it's still the honeymoon.

#115 1 year ago

A lot of the machines that I sold in the past, I wish I hadn't. I would never be able to buy them for what they were sold for. I sold a TZ for $700, A Black Rose for $350, Comet and High Speed for $400, etc. Right now I am not sure if I would let anything go. Except for a Spring Break. That will be up for sale soon.

I dont think im getting ahead of myself at all. I think its really that good for some people.

#117 1 year ago

Lots of memories acquiring them and all the time to make pristine look and play like new examples make letting them go tough.
That being said, the last to go would be my: Paragon, EBD, Stargazer, Quicksilver, Nineball, Seawitch out of the 50 I own.

#118 1 year ago

.....I think I have at least 40 that will never go anywhere.

#119 1 year ago

NGG. My first pin. Just something about it that I love trying to beat my high score.

#120 1 year ago

Tommy !

I loved it in 1994 and vowed it would be my first machine. And 15 years ago it was ! Many happy memories attached to it - my now sadly departed Dad loved it , if you are wondering who ED is in the default High Scores on the Chad ROM, that's my Dad ...thanks Chad, that was a very thoughtful gesture.

I doubt I will ever sell it.

#121 1 year ago

For me it is The Hobbit.

First, because it was my first pinball machine
Second, it was picked by my kids after playing several over 2 years
And three, they are currently selling for 99 bucks used.

#122 1 year ago

Cactus Canyon. Because; reasons.

#123 1 year ago

I don't think I could say never but TZ is not going anywhere for a very long time. Best game ever. Love everything about it. Mine was pretty nice when I got it but needed a lot of work to get it playing right and looking like I wanted. Congo would also be very hard to let go. I put a ton of work in mine just getting it playable. Just a fun game to play as long as you don't take it too seriously. Love the goofy theme and layout.

#124 1 year ago

After going through 20 games and playing hundreds of others the four that remain are all on my "last to go" list.

That being said everything has its price.

I sure do and it's simply because of the amount of care and work that went into her ...

And, Tim, if that ever changes you best call me. That thing is beautiful!

#128 1 year ago

I'm not sure I have a family member I wouldn't sell for the right price so I certainly don't have any pins I wouldn't!

I love your work. I wish you would post more!

#130 1 year ago

Tz owned for 20years

#131 1 year ago

Nothing lasts forever.

As well the pin community is so welcoming that if something leaves I'd never miss it too much because it'd be at someone else's lovely house.

#132 1 year ago

Awe thanks. =)

Picture of my getting very close to done Hot Doggin resto/playfield swap. Trying to get it ready in time for this weekend's Classic Pinball League Finals.
