Gilligan's Island w/ ColorDMD & mint playfield

Added: July 17th, 2019 Re-listed: 1 time (August 28th, 2019) Ended: September 1st, 2019
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Item description

This is an amazing and fun machine with a playfield in perfect condition! I believe it is a Diamond Plate version. I have added a new ColorDMD (June 2019) and full Comet LEDs (tastefully done). 100% working.

Cabinet has some fading and dings here and there (all documented in pictures).

This pinball is in fantastic condition and a great title to own.

Also included are a Skipper and Gilligan bobble heads and a 14" SS Minnow replica.

don't you know that this is worth over 10K???????

#3 11 months ago

I so want one of these this one is just a little too steep for me. Game is nice but PF definitely not perfect & game could use a full shop job & the cabinet certainly has seen better days. Would be a good look to properly align those flippers too, but maybe that's just the OCD in me! In some of the pics the left flipper looks stuck mid swing as well. Looks almost impossible to lose a ball SDTM!

#4 11 months ago

I wish the playfield was nice! I would buy it. It needs a lot of attention! A nice one just sold for 2400.00. If you change your mind on price please PM me. I'm ready to buy.

#5 11 months ago

Pretty loose definition of "MINT Playfield" with that closeup shot of the treasure chest insert. You're pretty high based on overall condition - but good luck to ya.

#7 11 months ago

Sweet flippers!

#8 11 months ago

wow, not in a good way either.

#9 11 months ago

wait, this guy has a web site where he list pin prices and he is trying to sell this one for more than his price guide??

My eyes are still burning from seeing the FS posts on Facebook.

Go to Ebay and sell your over priced junk. The thing is trashed you may get 1500.00 for it

I'm gonna guess he didn't change his mind and pm you.

I'll admit.....you did a great job of outling damage!

The right inlane rollover is trashed and lots of inserts have wear through the keylines. There's also lots of rust visible, so it was probably near the ocean somewhere or generally not cared for. This is not a mint machine by any definition.

What is the power supply mounted in the bottom of the cabinet used for?

You’re askin the real questions here lmao. Scary

#20 11 months ago

I love how Pinside is changing into a market. Not!
My friend you have "The Law" and Neo banging on your door! Run, Forrest Run!
Woody76 and specially Epithegeek are very graceful in their F you mode, so I would stick with the first 2 and go back to my island.
Juz sayin'
Merry XMas.

#21 11 months ago

Lol.. no I bought a nice 1 for 1400.00 less!

#22 11 months ago

Why are there pictures of coconuts and pineapples glued to the stand-ups? Did the game come like that originally?

No, those are chessey target decals you can buy.
2k with colordmd all day.
Lower price or keep game.

Does anyone else find it ironic that he is the purveyor of the https://pinballprices.com website?

#25 11 months ago

This is more funny than it is offensive...

It's just like he took someone else's text ad and pasted it into his. But the pictures tell the full story anyway, he even provided convenient close-ups that obviously contradict the description. Can't really claim he's hiding anything like those distant pics with glass on.

This is just like importing pinball machines from Europe, which we've been doing by the container load out here. Descriptions always sound great, but then you see the pictures.

I'm really starting to wonder if his doctorate is not in Pinball Pricing?

Of course the LED job is "tastefully done"... to your specific taste... But pictures tell the story anyway, just more funny than offensive.

This ad would have been perfect for April 1.

Sorry, but it's not. Anytime you are dealing with lighting and sound, there is a right and wrong way to do things. If you do it wrong, it makes things difficult to look at. Makes the game difficult to be used for what it was designed for. Anytime color LED's are used in GI's. The art turns to mush and the human eye has trouble following a silver ball in monochromatic lighting.

Man, that'd be an interesting experiment. Some kid needs to do this for science fair. I bet it's more person dependent than an objective general effect.

Just because you suck at playing color-bombed games, doesn't mean everyone does?

Anyway, I'm betting people that do this though, think it is tasteful, otherwise they wouldn't do it, ha. That was my point.

It is objective. Not sure how you could work on pinball to the degree you do and not know this. The science behind it is pretty simple. Trying to lol it away with "science fair" makes you sound like an idiot, but it's more funny than offensive.

Not much of a point either way. Obviously they didn't do the lighting because they thought it was hideous.

Yeah, my experience is that I've bought games with colored GI, and although they look weird, they don't distract me or affect me when I play. Maybe they weren't color-bombed bad enough though.

There was no "lol" in regard to my "science fair" remark, as the follow-up sentence demonstrates. I was wondering if there's something to it: but a couple of people claiming it is objective and simple science doesn't make it so.

You seem to be taking it way too personally, or your reading comprehension is lacking: The "suck at playing" question was the "lol" comment.

Don’t waste your time. The dude you’re replying to is a total boneheaded clown. I gotta box of rocks more intelligent than them

Those prices are wrong and so is the description of this game. SAD!

Ever develop black and white film? Ever work in a red dark room? how easy is it to look at things? How easy is it to look at a full color picture in that room. What does it look like? All gray and red. Right? There is your scientific proof right there. Same holds true with stage cannon lighting. Blues, greens, purple, orange, and reds do the exact same effect. Only one you can get away with is yellow, because it's the closest to the white spectrum and in the middle of the human visual, making it the easier to see in.

Claiming experience in a dark red room proves something scientifically about playing pinball is incredibly naive, but if that's the "science" you need to explain your poor play on colored-GI machines, okay.

The red room comment does remind me of this fun LED job on T3 below, but it's a rather extreme example that you might actually call monochromatic.

sorry, it's fact that you can't see shit in red,blue, green, purple orange lighting. Nobody can. I highly doubt you have super hero type eyesight that lets you see better in color wonder shitfest LED lighting, more than anyone else.

#37 11 months ago

I must be a super hero because this doesn't appear monochromatic and I'm sure I could play it fine.

Sucks to be you if you can't see anything here: might want to get to an eye doctor.

You must not have much actual playing experience in pinball if you think you could play that in a normal gameroom lighting situation.

Quoted from Elevatorman:

Probably the Color DMD. Speaking of, there's no baffle surrounding it to block out the backglass GI.
