Well, I’ve got a lot of games, and it is time to get rid of them.

Games are located in Union City, MI 49094. Cash preferred, but I can accept all major credit cards.

Most games are very solid and have great playfields and cabinets. Nearly all solenoids/toys work fine in test mode. All DMDs are great...bright with no lines out. Most games could use a good cleaning, but they are not wrecked or filthy).

If picked up in Michigan, I have to charge sales tax, unless you fill out a tax form because you are reselling the game at some point. (The State of Michigan has taken notice…I have no choice in the matter. I am not seeing a DIME of the tax money…it goes straight to the state).

Most of the listed games are re-imports. All games have been converted and tested at this point. I can give you detailed description of condition if there is something you are interested in.

Indiana Jones - $5050
Theatre of Magic - $4900
Twilight Zone - $5700
The Addams Family - $5100
CFTBL - $4700 (Nice PF/ Super-Green Cab. Hologram needs help.)
Flintstones - $2600
World Cup Soccer - $2300
Jack*Bot - $2100
Judge Dredd - $2200
Revenge From Mars - $2800
Maverick - $1800
Big Hurt - $1700
Striker Extreme - $1500
Fishtales – $2300 (Boots, all solenoids work. Playable, but still needs some minor things)
Fishtales - $2000 (Needs some help)
NBA: Fastbreak - $1850 (Needs to be shopped)
Jurassic Park - $1850 (Boots, but needs some help)

Also have (Non-Import US games that have been in my collection)

Wow, $5200 for ST:TNG. Must be in amazing condition. Want one but that's probably going to be $6k shipped.

I'll take the pac-man in the last photo

It is nice, but I'll be completely honest: That price is really high. I've had it for a while, and really kind of dig it. My wife isn't a huge fan of it...

So, that's the "if it brings in this $$ amount, then I'll sell it. Otherwise, I'll keep on enjoying it."

#5 7 years ago

you moving Pete?

#6 7 years ago

I just have to ask, why are you selling? Just trimming the collection down to half or are other big plans on the horizon?

Bun in the oven Pete? Just being nosy with Justin.

#8 7 years ago

Are these coming out of your personal collection currently listed at 85 games?

#9 7 years ago

looks like an overseas container to me...

Dear God, no.

Quoted from gweempose:

Yes, these are coming out of those 85.

Quoted from scottc:

Also correct.

#11 7 years ago

Are you attending any shows? Interested in creature.

#12 7 years ago

lol get enough of them at work hehehehe

#13 7 years ago

I helped unload this container. I gotta say it was very clean! Cabs looked very nice, and it was packed very well! We even managed to unload it without dropping anything, too! You break it, you buy it!

#14 7 years ago

Sounds like a good workout.

#15 7 years ago
Quoted from AkumaZeto:

Yes, but at the end of the day, they go HOME.

I don't know if I hit any shows in your area....I do hit the shows in Michigan and Chicago.

I can always see if I can get a game a "ride", though.

Wow. Someone actually completed a container deal with decent games and none got broke/lost/stolen/torched/e.t.c. ??

I'm shocked!

Man, it is a LOT of work, though. We did an insane amount of research prior, and pored over thousands and thousands of pictures.

Even then, there are always "surprises." (Not all bad, though). In the end...very pleased with how it all worked out.

....except for customs fees and inspections. AND the exploding Euro right when we were making the last payments. (grrrrr....).

Pete

#19 7 years ago

Holy frag. Wish I could afford a jackbot (and had space for one!).

#20 7 years ago

Really impressed with the overall condition. The TZ cab just looked great. (We saw a lot of pictures beforehand...but you never know until you are staring at it in person.

What did you score for yourself out of that load, Pete? If you'd rather not say, that's cool.

#22 7 years ago

I sure hope he keeps Maverick. I'll be over every other weekend, for sure!

Glad it worked out buddy! After everything is said and done it would be great if you could share some "rough" numbers of how it all worked out (Total container cost vs. selling all the machines and keeping a few for yourself).

#24 7 years ago

What country did they come from? Italy? Germany? How much do they smell like smoke? My experience is the imports aren't necessarily in that bad of condition, but they are typically very smoky.

I've dealt with pins in Italy AND Germany, and have been pleased with both. (As a blanket statement, the stuff coming from Germany has been excellent. Italy has been very good, but just a tad below).

This stuff does NOT smell smoky at all. I wouldn't have let it in my house if it did.

Still up in the air on which ones I'll keep. I won't keep more than two, no matter what.

For obvious reasons, I can't give up a ton of details at this moment.

Here's what I CAN tell you: The container business is an awful lot different than it used to be 5 years ago when I was last involved. Back then, finding games like JD for $500 on a container was commonplace, as was $1300 Addams and so on.

Now, the market is just different. I'm sure the container sellers have adjusted based on supply and demand....but the days of finding a container packed with sub-$1000 DMDs are long gone.

Add into that the crazy extra fees, shipping costs, euro (which only went back to normal AFTER we did this), and other costs you never even think of (insurance, inspections, blah blah blah)...and the reality of bringing them all in is far different than the expectations.

On the plus side, the market is very strong...and people are just "hungry" for DMD games.

This has been a very fun experience...but I'm certainly not quitting my day job, though.

Both IJ's you're selling are Williams or is one a IJ4?

Sorry to hear how badly you miss Baywatch and its gigantic DMD.

#31 7 years ago

Looks like you got some nice games in on the shipment. I agree that's what I was thinking about them all smelling like smoke as someone else said.. Interested in a JP..

#32 7 years ago
Quoted from marcand:

You break it, you buy it!

As long as the price is negotiable, I may be available to empty the next container...

#33 7 years ago

Emailed on those CFTBLs.

#34 7 years ago

I emailed about the two TOM and two RFM, no reply yet.

#35 7 years ago

Would you disclose any of those shipping costs? Or any advice? Easy to convert plug?

#36 7 years ago

Okay....I THINK that I am all caught up on emails. Sorry for the lag in a couple of those...some messages just got buried and I missed them.

If I have NOT replied back, send me another message. I'm not intentionally ignoring you, I swear.

Anyone needing pictures...email me directly at pmwolf@gmail.com.

Thanks for all the interest, folks!

How much for the cute little redhead not pictured?

I'm pretty sure that if you bought all of the games, she'd go along with the deal.

#39 7 years ago

Not that he needs it, but I just wanted to give a quick bump to an honest seller. Pete's helped me out a TON on my couple of pinball purchases. Buy with confidence.

Good luck, Pete!
