    does the guy who list pins on ebay with the chick standing by the machines in different clothing think it helps sell pins???

    maybe it does but who knows. always seemed a little strange to me but if it helps move product then keep on doing it

    here is one for example
    ebay.com link » 1998 Bally Champion Pub Pinball Machine Knockout

    I dont think it helps with sales especially at that price but thats a cute
    chick.

    #3 8 years ago

    There was a great thread on RGP that he was posting in recently...got pretty heated...

    #4 8 years ago

    "thats a cute chick."
    She's a knock out. Had to say it.

    He has to add in the modeling fees into the cost of the pin.

    #5 8 years ago

    He might claim sex sells, but we know as buyers she doesnt come with the machine

    #6 8 years ago

    so, I'm not the only one who has thought that? seriously, I think the majority of people looking at those ads think the same thing. to me it wouldn't make one bit of difference while she's ok to look at I'm there looking for pins.

    I really dont see how it can hurt? He is not going to lose a sale just as she is in the picture and she may be a modal and he is helping her career get started.

    I for 1 like the idea.

    #8 8 years ago

    I have overlooked plenty of this guy's ebay listings. Not only because he won't ship, but because his descriptions are usually filled with insults of some sort.

    Just read some of his listings. I bet he is worked up 24/7!

    #13 8 years ago

    I also am curious about this heated RGP thread. What was it about? Was that seller the one getting fired up. The problem is that some of the girls are cute and some aren't. His biggest problem is his constant insulting of his competition and the people he buys the machines from.

    I dig how she color coordinates with the pins. She was in a yellow outfit for Taxi. Same girl??

    Hmmm...maybe I was just still hazing from the contest. Still wiped out a little.

    #17 8 years ago

    She is a model.... His machines are VERY high priced, but if he is selling them, then more power to him...

    I don't have a link, but it was very entertaining indeed. So much so, that I almost posted a thread about it here. The seller started getting so mad, and the guys on RGP are always there to fan the flames when that happens.

    Yeah , but your still getting screwed!

    I actually thought I read that it was a family member of his (maybe his daughter). As far as if it helps or not...Well he's got us talking about it & i'm sure when people see his listings on ebay maybe some just open the link just to check her out. So I guess it isnt hurting him.

    haah i probably misread it, i was just skimming it quickly..

    #24 8 years ago

    I guess I was wrong she is a "local Model".....I sure wouldnt want to pay for someone to stand next to my machine for a ebay auction. But I guess he's the only one that knows if it works. Maybe she works on commission. LOL

    #25 8 years ago

    I can't stand this seller....... Seems like everyone (sellers on Craigslist especially) goes to eBay to get an idea of how much a pin is worth and this seller has the most ludicrous, over inflated prices I have ever seen. If he sells 1 out of every 100 listings I would be surprised. However at his ridiculous markup that is a huge profit for him.

    #26 8 years ago

    I am pretty sure this guy has come up in a thread before, in fact I am almost sure of it. Is this the same guy who said he will never bastardize a pin with LEDs or something like that?

    #27 8 years ago

    This is the guy who was talking crap about JJP and Pinballsales.com.

    #28 8 years ago

    I will not participate in the drama over there but, man I love reading those threads. I spit on the keyboard 3 times!

    Yes

    #30 8 years ago

    That guy ALWAYS has the worst choice of words in his ads. His attitude shows through so much. I can't imagine an everyday person remotely thinking about buying a pin would not see that in his ads. His machines look decent enough, too bad he needs to enroll in a serious marketing class at his local community college.

    #31 8 years ago

    Hey Coaster!!! Go to bed!!!!!!!!! lol

    #32 8 years ago

    He does do good work on the machines from the pics.

    #33 8 years ago
    Quoted from absocountry2:

    Pinball work: 9.8
    Personality work 2.6

    #34 8 years ago

    That is a funny thread. I like the fact that Pacpin rated the girl like a pinball machine and then went on with a 2 paragraph feature by feature analysis of the girl on why he gave her a 7 out of 10.

    The seller doesn't appear to be winning any customers on that forum.

    #35 8 years ago

    LMAO cant wait to read more when i get home today wish i didnt have to leave for work right now

    Oh, is there a pinball in the picture as well??

    #37 8 years ago

    His prices are WAY WAY too high. Period.

    #38 8 years ago

    I like the fact he has the models in his Ebay auctions.

    When I see the auction, I appreciate the model.

    What I appreciate even more, is that I know to hit the back button in my web browser, because he's always waaay overpriced, and one of the biggest douchebags in pinball I've ever seen. This guy can't resist putting other pinball industry down, and talking big about himself.

    He's the small man, small penis disease in it's prime example.

    #39 8 years ago

    Are you sure this is a model and not is gf or something? I mean she's not that good quite honestly, and if I were paying money for a chick to model, she better look better than that.

    I was reading the RPG thread posted above, and he says it's a local college girl.

    This makes sense, since I can totally see this guy creeping around the local college campus and walking up to girls "Hey baby, do you want to be a model?". lol

    At his prices you need some kind of gimmick to sell games....
