    Needs new Death Save plastic. The assembly is fine. Just needs a new post plastic: http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/550-5029-02 - $3.15. Otherwise in excellent condition all around.

    Comes with a few extras: Drunken Clam mod, Cliffy protectors (not installed), lots of extra decals for beer can, targets, and spinners.

    GL WNY...kinda hard to believe this pin is still around.

    Here's a bump for ya

    Very Nice Pin... One of my favourites actually... Wish I lived in Lewiston, or Amherst for that matter.. But, I live in Niagara on the Lake, Canada , and the government raping with 13% import tax on our deal is just a load of crap IMO... Our governments already collected tax on the machine with the original sale of the game. WhyTF do they get to collect tax again..? Shouldn't it be free trade?? and tax free?? We are freaking neighbours geographically, dude.. I could be at ur place in almost 30 mins. But 4500$ plus 13% makes it over 5 Gs .. Borderline preferring to put that towards a Metallica premium.

    Very nice game brother.. Good luck with ur sale....

    Curious on the tax thing. Lets say I buy I pin from Starburst...and I have the receipt showing the 2 taxes were paid (I live in the US). Would they need to be paid again should I bring that game across the border again?

    Unsure how it works going into the US, but they check what you've got coming into Canada, and you have to pay the tax. Tax is what it is...I for one am ok with paying it, especially since it shouldn't be a surprise - you want the pin bad enough to import it, you pay the import costs.

    Bringing a game into the states is no issues or 'taxes.' I'm just curious on a machine that was bought in Canada and the taxes paid(with proof on a receipt)...brought to the US...then brought back in to Canada.

    I have a couple HUO machines in my collection that have receipts from Starburst showing the GST + PST paid

    Or is it like a used car in the states...taxed on every sale

    How is the tax determined on a private sale? Do they assess value or do you provide a "receipt". I can make a receipt for just about any number. My printer doesn't care. So if you show up with a receipt for $3000, do they dispute your purchase price?

    It's been years since I took a pin into Canada, but I just made up a price ($400 for a Judge Dredd) and no one questioned it. Don't know if it's changed over the years, though.

    They are actually pretty craft now at the border. You can usually shave a little of the sale price. But if you try to get a MM over at a grand or so...they'll stuff you with the 25k Ebay price.

    There's also the US guy bringing the game into Canada for 5%..but I've heard of one story that the US citizen got hit for the whole 12-13%

    I've also heard a US guy (going to Canada) just getting waved through.

    Sure, you can get a fake receipt. However, I've brought a number over, and the best advice I can give, is be honest. It's not that difficult to find out what the approximate value of a pin is. Indeed, the only time I've ever had a problem is when I got a great deal on a bit of a beater. It wasn't believed, because there was another one on ebay for more than double the price I got. I got pulled over, my family pulled out of the car, and the pin inspected carefully. Once my condition issues were verified, and I paid the taxes, I was free to go, but it was still a stressful experience, and one my wife was less than thrilled with. Every other time has gone smoothly, because I don't screw around at the border. Say they shave a few hundred off the price - you've saved $26 - big woop. Now, a few thousand is a different matter in savings, but the odds of it being believable are slim.

    I just about died when I brought my Grand Lizard over recently, and 3 days before someone listed one on ebay for $5495.

    Family Guy is a great game! Just bought myself a set of Stewie Pinball decals last night from PinballLife (glad they still had em')

    Monster amazing question... ! I'm almost certain that with proof of original purchase receipt, those games are tax free bro to cross back over the river..

    I never once thought of this scenario btw. And technically fortuitous.

    Got any games you want to re-patriot???

    I got a buddy that wants a FunHouse.
    And , I'd like it.... if he got one too, cause I want to play his machine and crush his high score.....

    Cool talking to you cats in this thread.... cheers...
