So I haven't had it very long and my back and looming surgery hasn't aloud me to get it exactly all set up! I fixed the drop targets had a bad fuse. The coindoor lock needs to be replaced drilled it out and haven't been able to put the new one on it's included! Um Playfield is in great shape very little wear cabinet is good has wear and niks from age but still looks great! Backglass has some chipping and needs to be sprayed also been touched up a bit not too bad probably 7 if I had to give it a number on 1-10! The only thing wrong with the game as far as I can tell is the right slingshot isn't firing! But like I said cause of my back can't get it done. I'm hoping to get 1100 obo pick up only as of right now! I'll add pics tomorrow

So I got the Genie and Night Rider that were near me they were listed at 1200. They came down to $1000 but cause the keys missing to Genie's coin door and the drop targets not working on Genie got them both for $850!

So you bought 2 machines for $850 and now you want to sell 1 of them to us for 1100 OBO?

So he got a good deal--big whoop. Sometimes you profit, sometimes you lose a little bit. I really don't see any problem.

This fierceness, this attitude toward any FS and WTB ad really bugs me. Either it is price you'd pay or not--let's not bust out the court stenographer--it's tiresome.

Sell your Genie, Sammy.

Looks like a good price for a Genie, which has gotten popular since it was in Pinball Arcade. GLWS.

Edit: You might wanna add some pictures, you'll get a lot more interest.

Edit----Bump, you are welcome.

VVVV Thank you Doctor.

Sorry but it's called passive aggressive. ^^^^^

sorry, but it is called greed.

Nothing wrong with a little profit, but when you are trying to more than double your money it is tacky to bring it to the community. Esp the community that has helped you to price check the games and helped you trouble shoot and fix them up.

Seems more and more poeple have this plan:
1. Find games and ask for Pinside advice on purchase since you are unable to use the internet to decide for youeself.
2. Based on Pinside advice, negotiate a good purchase price
3. Games need fixing but you have no idea how to fix them so come ask pinside how to fix
4. Do a few minor things (but not all the things because that would take more time and $) based on pinside advice to fix and ramble on about how you can't wait to get a few more games (insinuating you are investing more time and energy into this hobby and not just fly by night)
5. 1 month later, attempt to double your profit directly to pinside even though they are the people that helped you get the games and gave you tips on fixing them up.

Pretty shitty IMHO to use the community for your advantage when I am guessing it was your plan the entire time.

So I guess when I got 6 pins for 200.00 a few months ago I should have sold them for 225.00 for all six? Or is that to much profit? I made a couple thousand dollars on the deal and not one pinsider complained about it, they were just happy to buy a pin. You can pay his price or just move on. I used the money to buy other pins if that makes any difference. If that genie was closer I would be buying it while people are whining about the price. Ed

There is no right slingshot on Genie- it's just a rubber.

Love the Genie- great game

Great Game- Not a bad price- To Far Away

Nothing wrong there, because if they sold quick, you must have priced them at fair market value.

To Flank, and others..

Love ya Flank...

But your wrong here...

If i got a MM for free, or near free, i certainly wouldnt give it to somebody else for free...

Lets be realistic...

I hope the guys makes a bit and gets the value of the machine for the condition its in...

I'm sure he has lost his ass on a few others in the past...

Everybody deserves to make a bit now and then, it always goes back in the hobby anyway...

No greed here, just reality...

Carry on !

Really? Sounds good to me. People can say no or better yet, why respond at all unless you truly want it. If I want a game bad enough, I will do what is necessary to buy it. I love the responses around here to people that sell....wish I lived closer, I would buy it in a heartbeat...wish you would ship, would have bought otherwise...you bought it for $1000 and you want $1300 for it, outrageous...etc. Never seen so many posts in a forum stating reasons why someone won't buy a game...they only make a seller feel bad which is why I don't post games here that I have for sale...never have. If you don't have something nice to say.....

You wanna pick on a kid who is about to under go Back surgery and needs money! When I bought the damn game I didn't have any plans for surgery told an injection would get me moving or it'd be minor. Nope I have Spinal Stenosis gotta cut out bone and possibly ligament and disc. i can barely move and can't play right now. Sorry I want money for summer leagues sorry I want money for my birthday and a few video games. i'm not doing anything wrong and shouldn't have to defend myself cause you don't like that I got advice. And yeah about the time and money I don't have it now. And even if I did I can't physically do it

#27 5 years ago

#28 5 years ago

good luck with your surgery. wish you well

#29 5 years ago

That's what this hobby is, dog eat dog world. Get use to it.

#30 5 years ago

its not dog eat dog, is normalcy...

get a good deal, the rare times that even happens, make a buck or two, and invest back into the passion.. " the hobby"

it's quite simple...

it hepls make up for the beatings you can take on other games...
