Was just informed from the previous owner that the lock bar was factory with later b/w pins! Good news is that I didnt throw the hardware out! I learn something new everyday! My daddy would be proud!.

Although I do think it looks better without.

#7 3 years ago

Fyi- games on the move will be picking up a pin from my home tomorrow morning, and they will be coming back to drop one off in the next couple weeks, his rates are ridiculously cheap!

Hey jrush everythings always for sale!!

No one likes a crybaby beard!

Quoted from jrush2112:

Mike tz xmen met. Not for sale just sold like 12 k in games bro i keep games for more than a week .

Fyi! It's been 1 week and 1 day! Don't you feel silly!

#10 3 years ago

Thanks for all the great offers I really appreciate them all, but at this time i really am just looking for pins that are in my ad. Im really hopeing for a #1eatpm or #2 badcats with some cash. Any condition is fine except fully restored with your value of 4k I'm not paying 4K plus for any title I'm seeking even if it was dipped in gold or restored from Jesus himself. Not trying to insult anyone's pins or work I'm just not into high end collecting or way over paying for an old pin I guess. Thanks all.

Quoted from kjm8888:

Love Champion Pub! Unfortunately I just traded my Transporter and Class of 1812 (among others) for a WOZ75. I will definitely own 1812 again someday. GLWT!

Sure, tease me!

#13 3 years ago

Anyone with an above average eatpm with 1500 cash could be bringing home a sweet champion pub. That values your Elvira at 3 K and considering I've not seen one sell for 3k, I feel that's a great offer do you? I'm not paying for any shipping whatsoever. But I'm willing to meet up to three and a half hours one way.

#14 3 years ago

Just installed the backsplash decal and floor decals, also forgot I ordered standup target decals which were put on today as well, cliffys are still coming!



#17 3 years ago

Looking for outrite sale,hey with pin prices doubling overnight lately, this pin will be be worth 10k come easter! I'd grab it!

I need the 4500 so I can kick in another 2k ish to buy a eatpm, eatpm should be 20k come easter if I'm lucky.

#19 3 years ago

I have 4300 into cp, that's my low, I can not take less & will not lower price on this one, I can not travel with this sale sorry,if your looking for a nice cp example this is she, pin is in my basement only 6 stairs, more than willing to ship if needed at your expense.

#21 3 years ago
Quoted from msj2222:

can you post pics before cliffys are installed?

If your interested pm me and I'll send you what you need. Thanks

#22 3 years ago

Bump 4299.99

#23 3 years ago

I would still be interested in partial trade for eatpm, badcats or spectrom

#24 3 years ago

Merry Christmas uglys!

#26 3 years ago
Quoted from Gorf:

Ill offer 3600.00

I wouldn't sell it to you for 4500 even if you paid the shipping, merry Christmas dorf.

#29 3 years ago
Quoted from chrisjens2:

Ha ha ha
Beautiful machine though!


3600 wouldnt even get me a eatpm. I would still be 2k short.

#30 3 years ago

Cliffys came in today, yeah!!




#31 3 years ago

Cliffys and alcohol do not mix ! VZM.IMG_20151222_174520.jpgVZM.IMG_20151222_174520.jpg


Well now someone's getting a brand new brand new pf glass!!!


#34 3 years ago
Quoted from Cliffy:

Oh crap. I remember the first time that happened to me. My buddy and I were cleaning up my newly acquired Creech and I had the lock bar off and the glass just pulled down a foot or so. Of course we had a couple of big frosty mugs of rum 'n pepper whilst delving into the depths of the Trudeau masterpiece, wondering in awe at the myriad contraptions he lovingly placed about the playfield purely to stymie our cleaning efforts... thanks John! Love ya! I hear this kind of shooshing sound - like skis on snow. Mark heard it too at the same time and we looked at each other across the game, quizzically but half lit too. What the hell is that.... SMASH! no virgin no mo!

Haha love ya brother!! Your stuff looks great!! Just a couple switch covers (hint,hint, ) and she's all done!!
No pin is complete without the cliff meister!

And no it did not break in pin! I set glass on floor and boom!! I have a fresh piace of pf glass to replace it.

#35 3 years ago

Rubber rings are toast as pictured near the plunger cliffy , for some reason they were not in rubber kit? I will replace before sale, thanks for pointing that out cliff.

#37 3 years ago

No Guinness, labatts, and some mixed Sam adams, doing my best to clean up the leftovers from last week,

#43 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

Labatt was to blame. Let's be honest here mjm. I know there's a pic of the culprit somewhere...

Variety of culprits mr beard!!



#44 3 years ago
Quoted from Gorf:

."Dumbass" definition, a thoroughly stupid person; blockhead. See more.

Ohhhh your so dam cute when your little light sabre short circuits! This is the second pin I've told you to go sit on your light sword and rotate! Poor poor little gorfy!

#46 3 years ago

Lmao, hahahahah.

#49 3 years ago
Quoted from snyper2099:

Man, this looks like a great deal for someone. If only you weren't in NY...

The hobbists life story , every pin I wanna buy is 2k plus miles away! Lol

I'm only asking what I have into it, I'll lose a little by the time someone buys it im sure of that but I'll play it till then. I have a bad habit of putting money into pins I'm selling, anything I find wrong will be replaced whether she sells soon or not, I love this pin and already regret selling but it's gotta go eventually.

Thanks for all the cali offers,but I'm not paying for your shipping boys, sorry.

Quoted from kporter946286:

Hey Nobody makes fun of Star Wars fans around here and gets away with it ya Dumbass!!

#57 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

Or could do eatpm and flints for cp plus cash on your end.

Your gonna tease me with eatpm and I'm never gonna get it!!

#58 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

Really Mr beard!! On Christmas as well! I was in a great mood til I read this garbage! I'm willing to get raped (a little) if you wanna give up the eatpm which you won't ya jerk!! For cp. Try me?? let's do this!!

#60 3 years ago

Back to reality bump.no eatpm poor mjm.


#61 3 years ago

4150. This is the lowest I'm going.

The market has spoken , I'm pulling this down soon if not sold or maybe use cabinet for target practice and then burn the rest.

#62 3 years ago

Last ditch effort to get a eatpm with this sweet cp. I'm willing to overpay for a nice eatpm how about your eatpm plus 700. I'm not driving though, this values your pin at approx 3500. Which I think is way over valued but I'm willing to trade. pm if interested

That eatpm on klov for 2500. In cali is really irritating me, considering that's all its worth anyway lol.

#67 3 years ago
Quoted from snyper2099:

I could be willing to do that depending on schedule and weather. I do travel to Cleveland quite a bit.

I'm on crack to even consider this lol, how's the pf and cab, if I'm traveling at all I want a really nice example, any pics, thanks

#68 3 years ago

Thanks snyper.

Still looking

#70 3 years ago
Quoted from snyper2099:

No worries. Let me know if nothing else shapes up, I could possibly up the offer.

Mjm is listening? ???

#71 3 years ago

Also would do a nice bop or br with cash?

#72 3 years ago

#76 3 years ago

I'm heartless

#77 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

Odd. You donated so you should get the cute little red heart!

Look! I got my cute little red heart! I guess this means I wear my heart on my sleeve?

Quoted from kporter946286:

Understatement if year

I really try hard to understand your language mr porter?

#80 3 years ago

Someone sell me there eatpm

#82 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

My eatpm plus $50 for your cp?

I was thinking more like 3k for both your eatpm & flints , that is if flints is still for sale?

#85 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

Everything's for sale!
Flints may be going to gnatty soon though.

And I may be going to Disneyland although I do not have a ticket yet!

#86 3 years ago
