Game - for sale

For sale: The Big Lebowski

Added: 2022-06-15 21:07:52 UTC • Ended: June 16th, 2022
Condition: As new - New out of box (first owner)

Price

$ 13,500 (Firm)

Price is firm

This is actually NIB.

I've never seen it, but I just paid the final bill with Melissa at Cointaker. I've decided this isn't a family-friendly pin; thus, I just bought a Toy Story instead. Cointaker indicated a couple days ago that my unit is ready for shipment within 60 days (I made my downpayment in August 2021).

I am NOT making a dime, because I hate that shit! The only thing I loathe more than flippers are hypocrites. So, do NOT bother reaching out to me if you have ever flipped a game for profit. I will research your prior sales and smoke you out, so don't try me. By purchasing mine at cost, you're also agreeing by implication NOT to flip it yourself to another. There's a special place in hell for someone who flips after making a promise not to do it.

Indeed, I would much prefer to sell this to a person who contributes to their community or our country. If you volunteer to help others or you volunteered to serve your country (USA or Canada) in the military, I stand in awe of your service and sacrifice. That's the type of person I'd like to see get this game without having to wait nearly a year. [Color me in complete agreement with the great Jack Nicholson -- in A Few Good Men: "You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall -- you need me on that wall!"]

My out-of-pockets costs are: $13,500 (plus $45 for this ad, I guess). This includes the "starry apron" and shipping to the Lower 48. I have all the receipts to prove it up. [The pin was $12,500, the starry apron an additional $600, and shipping is $400]

So if you're a decent human being who makes an effort to be a net positive in the world, and who loathes flippers like most of us do (you know who you are - $25,000 for a Toy Story CE ... you ought to be ashamed), please reach out to me.

This will sell quickly, so please don't bombard me after "sale pending" is listed. I wish I could sell it to you all -- but obviously I cannot. I also have a very busy job, so I may not be able to respond immediately or to everyone. I apologize for that inconvenience in advance.

FAIR WARNING: While I have bought a few pins, I have never sold anything on Pinside except a slot for Halloween CE, so I only have one feedback (for an awesome JP Premium purchase from Arizona). That suggests to me that I may not know all the technicalities of selling on this site - so please be patient with me. Melissa at Cointaker will hook you up once I email her your information.

I expect to be paid by wire transfer to my bank in Alaska. It only costs a few bucks, which I think you'll have to fund on your end.

I do NOT want to trade anything. I don't have the room and I have to figure out what games to sell to make room for Toy Story (and maybe a sweet Monster Bash I have my eye on!).

Thank you for respecting my stipulations,
Eric Derleth

The game does have a “family friendly” mode… Removes all cuss words from the videos and call-outs.

What fun would that be? The best parts of the movie are R-rated!

Hats off to you for doing this. The hobby needs more guys like you!

nice work man. nice work indeed. Would be best if you could let someone nearby to you get the game but understand that might not be possible. There are still some hobbyists out there who are in it for pinball after all. Good to see. Wish I could take it off your hands.
