Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Since TBL is sold, and all anybody cared about was Loch Ness Monster anyways, Mike Engle posted some pics eight years ago when he sold it. You might need to sign on or create an account at Yahoo, but these are worth the effort. I'd rather buy TBL for $21k than pay $$$ for LNM.

That's real nice calling his buyer a sucker. Real classy.

Just do a game search for LNM on PinSide.

Funny how this TBL thread morphed to LNM!

I apologize if my message came off as snooty in any way. I'm not a gifted writer and I am prone to making mistakes.
Again, my sincere apology but none of that was intended.

You’re putting your gaffe on the fact that you’re not a gifted writer and prune to making mistakes? Please, what a cop out. You knew exactly what you were writing, you just didn’t like the responses. Just say it for what it is. I’m sure you’ll come back with a snide comment, just as long as you don’t make it “gifted” in any way.

These guys hashed this out like a week ago.

It took you six days to compose that reply? You've been stewing over this for nearly a week and this is your third attempt to attack me?
I'm sorry I've outwitted you with my comments in the past but you really need to get over yourself.

#261 9 months ago

I can get one right now for 13k, still too much!

You should snap it up before the current owner figures out market price is $20k. If you don't want it, please send me the details. I'd drive to Missouri for a deal like that.

So why dont you buy it and sell it for 20k. I guess you dont like money?

Plus he called you a prune. Things are getting ugly.

Quoted from pinlawyer:

LNM just doesn't look very interesting.

It's not, the gameplay isn't anything special, it's purely the rarity of it.

So it's like BBB

#267 9 months ago
Quoted from BoJo:

So it's like BBB

Or Alien
EDIT: Or TBL from what I hear

#268 9 months ago

Eh, I think BBB is a fun game. One of the original BBB is in the same collection as this Loch Ness, I can tell you which I've put more time on.

#269 9 months ago

So PinLawyer, I don't know how many details you're willing to share, but given all the free bumps and promotions from all of the handy helpful Pinsiders, along with some great debates and a few ejections, can you say at least if the sale came from Pinside and from linking your ad to a thread? Was Pinside helpful? Or was the sale not connected to Pinside at all?

#270 9 months ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

TBL from what I hear

A machine that has you take a break so you can watch some video clips.

#271 9 months ago

The sale was connected to Pinside, yes.

on a scale of 1 (completely unsatisfied) and 10 (completely satisfied) how would you describe your TBL-sale pending experience?

I was thinking on a scale of 1 and 21,000.

Heck we are all brothers on here. I am sure he would return the favor if I had a for sale thread. I am just glad he got a buyer and now it sounds like others are lining up!

#275 9 months ago

Congrats on the sale pending, Greg! I hope these get made again one day (although seems unlikely) as I would love to play one and potentially own one someday!

#276 9 months ago
Quoted from taimaster2005:

Well that would really fuck the guy who just dropped $21,000 buying Greg's game.

Because i dont believe somebody else will pay that for it, honestly

#278 9 months ago
Quoted from RTS:

I don't see how as he obviously had the extra $21,000 or whatever to spend.

Also it wouldn't be the first time a game that was fetching more than it cost new got remade. And that knowledge is well out there.

Pinball should only be considered an investment if it is to be used what it was made for. Making money the old fashioned way. Earning coin drop. Otherwise it's just a luxury item.

#279 9 months ago

Ok, i have one ill sell for 18k contact me and ill go pick it up!!!

#280 9 months ago

So, look, if everything being reported on this thread is accurate, the take away is that if you're one of these "$20k walking around money in your front pocket" dudes, or better yet, you regularly drop $100k on annual hunting trips, AND you want a Big Lebowsky pinball machine, don't bother waiting for one to go up for sale. Just reach out to any number of current owners and offer the new going rate, and you'll easily have one by the weekend. Probably can get free shipping!

#281 9 months ago

That’s cheap price for TBL just risky with no support if anything goes bad on it.

By the way Look at what Supreme does,omg
Plenty of people with plenty of play money to spend.
All comes down to income and passion

It alll comes down to wealth and how one determines prestige.

Exact same thing as modern art. It's what it represents, not what it is.

Quoted from RTS:

In a lot of ways I agree with this statement. I have finally discovered what really attracts me to a particular game to want to spend more than others to obtain it. (to have a near perfect example) I had to have a collection of 17 games to figure which ones were special to me and which ones I could let go of.
The artwork (the colors used, the theme of the artwork, playfield and cabinet) The sounds it makes (general theme, call outs, noises) The toys (bash toy, magnets, interactive video) That cool thing that only this game can do, and Game Play/Rules. But most of all I have found that I really need Humor in the general theme of the game. Serious titles just don't have the staying power with me. Don't get me wrong, they are fun to play. I just don't need to own them. Good example: TZ, TOM, STTNG... The exception (and there is always the exception) TOTAN.

Would love to have it in my line up
Still have deposit with CT
But 21k I just cant pull the trigger

We don't get Y&R but if we did the wife would be all over it

#294 9 months ago

Opinions are like assholes everyone has one. And a fool and his money sums it all up. I personally wanted one and had a deposit, but it didn't work out. If someone can sell and one can buy at this price level than right on.

No modern Sterns ever? Your great taste in fine pinballs is now in question. Your life will be enriched once you come over to the dark side, I promise. You'd probably need to narrow your search filter to your favorite five Stern Pinballs and add the bunch to your collection, stat! Think of it as .... an investment. Maybe not but, but you will have $30k of cool new toys. You probably need a $21k TBL too. Your B/W and JJP's will welcome the diversity. Happy ending available for $50k. You'd be much smarter than those dudes buying $65k for a Supreme.
