Condition: Used - shows wear but 100% working and clean

Item description

Up for sale is a nice working pin-bot. It has a decent playfield, and it flips great. The flippers have been upgraded to side springs and has really enjoyable action.

Topper and translite are good. It has normal bulbs in the GI; I am not a fan of the two tone GI thing. I get it, there is a red and blue side...

It's clean, but it could use a nice shop job so you can install those new plastics. I bought them when they were available and never stopped playing the game long enough to install them.

It has X-Pin displays and a power supply.

The batteries have been removed and the board uses a Super-Capacitor. It's not NVRAM, but it's worked great for the last couple of years.

The cabinet is a hot mess. Some knuckle head replaced the bottom with the lowest grade plywood available and reinforced a few things with 2x4s. The power switch is on the wrong side. The good news is that I have had the game for years and it has never bothered me. From the outside it looks OK and it plays good.

I just updated the ad with a bunch of pictures. The game is solid, it just has visible and not attractive repairs. It all looks pretty manageable, I just don't feel like doing it. Pinball Pimp even has the decals if you like wood work.

If you think I'm crazy feel free to price police the goodness out of it and shoot me offers if you want it.

2x4s? I bet it's got some drywall screws too? Sweet mods!

#3 2 years ago

Mods is right! I should charge extra. I added some cabinet pics to show the repairs. The cabinet looks fine for daily use, but it has some crap repairs on the inside. Would toss in a "like me" joke, but I don't look fine from the outside

#4 2 years ago

Shame about the cab, the PF looks pretty decent, definitely seen worse players pins! GLWS!

damn, if you want to sell the plastics separate for an inflated price let me know. I missed the boat on that one.

Well catch that boat http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/31-1006-549 Looks like they are in stock $165 shipped.

But good way to remind people that the parts that come with this beauty are worth a good percentage of the price. If you had to buy the new boards and the plastics, then this would be a 1k game. And it's pretty nice for a 1k game.

We play league on this game and it's super dependable. I'm getting lots of low offers, but I'm not desperate yet.

" I get it, there is a red and blue side..." HA HA that's great!!!!!!! I'm glad I'm not the only one who isn't a fan of that. Same goes with F-14, always with the red and blue separation! On a serious note, obviously it's not my game, so people can do what they want and if i buy it I'll just return it to stock (as i did to my Pin-Bot), but it always seems like such a shame to wash out all the artwork with colored LEDs for GI on any game.

GLWS!!

This game is a good looker and a good player. Joe is always honest about his games. Honestly never noticed the negatives pointed out it has always looked good and played well esp for the age of the game. Flippers feel great.

#9 2 years ago

With the new displays, power supply and plastics set along with a nice topper and no mechanical problems this is not too shabby! With 2x4's and drywall screws the cabinet should be solid as a rock!

Thanks for the kind words. Maybe I'm too honest; I think my description scared some folks off I figure it's better to not sell than tarnish my reputation.

Way to accentuate the positive

I'll add some more outside pictures. The cabinet issues are not super visible.

Feel free to toss me some offers. I've already turned down $800, $950 and $1100 from various folks. You would think I needed drug money the way people drop those pawn shop number.

#11 2 years ago

I just added a bunch more pictures of the outside and inside of the cabinet. Hope it makes it clear for all those that have asked.

After the weekend the OBO clause kicks in. I'm never insulted, but I will make fun of low offers. I just don't want you thinking I have hurt feelings over it

#12 2 years ago

Just realized I hadn't included a playfield shot in the pictures. I fixed that and dropped the price to $1300.

holy crap, dude I could of sworn I checked them a few weeks back and was very sad. I checked every other distro out there and couldn't find them either. I pretty much just gave up and hoped they would pop up on the pinside parts page some day.
Very much appreciated zimjoe.

yeah reading your other post, I wouldn't let it go for anything lower then your asking price. I picked one up for 1300 with a playfield that looks pretty bad and no new plastics. Definitely worth the price you are asking and then probably a couple 100 more. I've found that descent games priced under the 2k mark usually sell pretty fast. Maybe not on pinside, but craigslist or ebay.
