(been working fine since I got it in July but full disclosure).

Feel free to hit me up with trades. Especially interested in Whirl-Wind, The Simpsons Pinball Party, lower end Stern Star Wars, and lower Twilight Zones +/- cash as appropriate. Also looking for a lower end Golden Tee, San Francisco Rush, Hyperspin, or Outrun.

Edit: Vans fixed. Could bring to York Show Saturday for the right deal.

Edit 2:
I have always done my best to be completely honest in my listings and be 100% fair in my descriptions (check my feedback) so I am adding this section. The first buyer I spoke with was a high end collector who passed on my machine due to the clear coat. The 4 fish on the front look perfect because a previous owner had applied new decals over the originals and then applied a new coat of automotive clear coat. Apparently the proper way to do this is to apply clear coat and then put a decal on. I personally don't care and can't tell unless I take off the glass and run my hand over where these insert stickers are. As you can see from the photos, everything looks fine. That clear coat should keep the play-field looking nice for many years to come.

Please watch 1:30 through ~3:00 in the original descriptive video where I point out the negatives to this machine.


I have received many offers on this machine... over 27 to date but still don't have a final deal. At this point in time I am not willing to ship. I have been offered $4,000 to have it shipped, and have passed for two reasons. Please don't try to argue with me over PMs.

1. I would like to shake hands with someone local that has play-tested the machine (I always do).
2. I would like to go to the York show with cash in hand to buy another machine (preferably a Whirl-Wind or maybe a TSPP).
3. It is sooo much easier to move a pin with a buddy. My pins are in a walkout basement with no steps, but I have a slight uneven hill I could use a spotter on for 30 seconds while I push it up the hill just in case something happens like the dolly breaking.

I am still replying back and forth with several folks, and expect to have a deal in place in the next few days.

I am inviting anyone who wants to to point out any negatives to my machine that they see.

Very nice!

#3 42 days ago

I would take this if you were closer which you are not

Glws! Should go quick!

#4 42 days ago

Beautiful - Wish I had room for one more...GLWS!

#6 42 days ago

Fish Tales is still available.

I have edited the ad to show that I am not entertaining deals requiring shipping at this time.

Lots of trade offers (thanks!) but no clear winner yet. Feel free to shoot me an offer. Worse I can say is no and I'll do my best to get back to you quickly (within a few hours).

It also looks like there are going to be several very nice higher end pins coming onto the market soon based off of trade offers.

#7 41 days ago

Vans fixed. Can bring to York for the right deal.

#8 41 days ago

Looks awesome. Can I ask why you are using pincab cab protectors on a newly decaled cabinet? Won't those cause wrinkling of the new decals?

#9 41 days ago

Wow, crazy deal. This is a steal.

#10 41 days ago

Wow, great price

I've never heard that, but to be honest they are there because that's the way it was when I got it.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

I have never had this much interest in a pin.

#12 41 days ago

#13 41 days ago

A playfield swap would take care of this for the high end collector. I would prefer the decals under the clear coat to abstain from wear. GLWS

I have been astonished by the response to this ad. The Fish Tales is gone but I wanted to let you know what was offered. If I gave brief answers I apologize as I was still trying to go about my day. I also hope this helps you understand why I didn’t want to ship. Offers I received between pinside, craigslist, and Facebook:

1. $4,000, but required shipping

2. Initial D Twin drivers arcade and cash

3. Super nice Mame in cabinet to scary for my kids and cash.

4. $3,500 plus I deliver 4 hour round trip.

5. $3,500 plus I ship it.

6. $3,600 plus I ship it.

7. NBA fast break plus Golden Tee 2007

8. HUO Terminator 3 plus Golden Tee 2007

9. Hook plus Golden Tee 2007 plus cash

10. Elvis, the Pin

11. TNA for Fish Tales plus cash TBD

12. $2,800 plus Golden Tee Complete 2005

13. Sample Earth-Shaker

14. Batman Forever

15. Indiana Jones for Fish Tales plus cash TBD (and shipping)

16. Attack From Mars LE for Fish Tales Plus Cash

17. Restored Flash Gordon

18. Monster Bash Original for Fish Tales plus Cash

19. $3700 Cash

20. $2900 plus Golden Tee Complete 2005

21. Golden Tee 2016 plus cash TBD

22. Junkyard

23. Flintstones plus $600

24. $3300

25. Stern Pirates (plus shipping)

26. $3200

27. $3500

28. A very crappy looking golf cart

29. $2300

30. 4 Arcade 1 Ups

31. $2,700

32. $300, a Revenge From Mars with RFM and SWE1

33. $1,200

34. $3,700

35. Walking dead plus cash from me

36. Demolition man

37. No Good Gofers and cash from me

38. $5000 in suspect Best Buy "Store Credit" Lolz Craigslist

39. $500

40. A couple of very nice looking kayaks and a bicycle.

The end result is that I went with someone who offered me the equivalent of $3,600 in cash and arcade trade (got my Golden Tee delivered) and came in person to test, pay cash, and load his vehicle with my help.
