I'm just gauging interest right now as I'm still undecided about letting this go.....anyways, here's the story.

I bought TSPP as a project machine. It needed a bunch of stuff, glass, toys, plastics etc... I basically put most of the machine back together and got it looking pretty good. From what I can tell right now it needs the MPU and I/O boards, some coils need to be replaced/rebuilt, bottom speaker is gone and probably some new bulbs. Since the boards, mentioned above, were not present I have not been able to put power to it. The cab, translight and playfield look nice, only a little fading on the cab. As far as I can tell at this point in time the game should work with the boards installed.

Now the twist...aka my dilemma... Due to health issues I don't know if I'll be physically able to bring the machine back to life. When I first bought it I thought I could do another project but my body now disagrees. I'm left with 2 choices.....

1: Keep the game in the hopes that I get better and will be able to finish what I started. Or.....
2: Since I still love pinball, sell or trade it and let someone bring this machine back to it's original awesomeness.

I want to see what choice 2 might bring, so.......

I'd like to do a trade.....2 for 1, 1 to 1 even or 1 + cash. Would like a local deal to avoid shipping or if you're willing to deliver we can deal. I'm in Plainfield CT 06374..... I guess cash offers are good too as long as you can pick up or cover delivery fees.

Pins I'm looking for....and must work 100%. Player machines are OK, just no projects or beaters please.

T2
X-Files
WWF RR
Jurassic Park (DE not Sega)
Stern Star Trek Pro (I would add some cash)
T3
TFTC
Apollo 13
Maybe a few others (DMD 1990 on up) I'm forgetting.

Let me know what you have....all offers considered, worst I could say is no.

Thanks
Rob

I can take some better pics if needed. I pride myself on giving all the info I have about the pins I do sell. Both the good and the bad. I hide nothing just ask for a particular pic or pics and I'll do my best to get them.

TGIF Bump

When the MPU is back in stock, I'm pretty sure I will take this off the market and try to finish it. Until then I'm curious to see whats out there for trade as it is now. Pain wise it's gonna be awhile before I can do what's needed or it will take me 3 times as long....what used to take me an hour or so to complete now takes 3 hours or more.

To quote Garth Brooks..."I'm much to young to feel this damn old" !!!!!!!

Sorry to hear the pain you're going through. Hope you feel better and good luck with the trade bump.

This trade offer is a dream come true for anyone with a WWFRR or Xfiles

Thanks for the kind words and opinions guys. Much appreciated!

If anyone has both WWFRR and X-Files....I would be happy to do a 2 for 1 trade and I would add some cash. The WWF would be for my son who LOVES pro wrestling and pins are perfect for him to play. He can fit his wheelchair perfectly between the front legs of a pinball machine. Pretty much the reason I don't collect vids anymore...he can't get close enough to reach controls and see the screen on most.

My son, Travis, with Mick Foley...aka mankind, dude love, cactus jack, etc......

Got a cash price in mind or would you be interested in a Gottlieb Strike N Spares?

Did this process or did it fall through... How much $$$ would be needed theoretically to bring to life?

Still pending....The T2 is being shopped prior to the trade.
