Gorgar & Epic Extras w/ 100% of proceeds to Project Pinb
Featured Ad

Added: August 20th, 2019 Ended: September 12th, 2019
Condition: Partially restored (almost original)

Item description

As featured and discussed in The Slap Save Pinball Episode #37 "A Devil WITH a Cause." Episode and detailed notes here: https://slapsave.podbean.com/e/ep-37-a-devil-with-a-cause/

Will be streamed for your inspection and consideration on Thursday August 22 at 7:30 PM Central sharp (slapsavepinballpodcast). Please feel free to contact me with questions. Serious offers only. Sale will provide funding to Project Pinball to place a machine (not Gorgar) in Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital and contains some FANTASTIC additions provided by some VERY generous and thoughtful individuals and companies. Anyone who would like to add to the giveaway items with the machine, please contact me ASAP.

A public display of the receipt (on Pinside, Facebook and anywhere else appropriate) showing 100% raised for the machine was given DIRECTLY to Project Pinball in it's entirety. A DIRECT DONATION. No raffle tickets. Just the full amount forwarded directly to the fine folks at Project Pinball.

Sale will run for three weeks (Ends September 10th, 2019). At the end, the highest offer will be the purchaser. While I am not usually one to offer "Auction" type formats, due to the unique situation involving this special machine, we feel this is the best way to conduct the sale. In the event that two or more individuals offer the same amount, the sale will be granted to the individual who made the first offer. (We reserve the right to end the sale early if a substantial offer is made) We will disclose the full sale price of the machine upon completion of the sale term. I just want to maximize the benefit to Proj. Pinball.

Purchase will include:
-Near CQ/CQ Gorgar, depending on your definition. This machine has blown away and been admired by most all who have played it. Includes any and all parts I have with the machine. Extensive description of the machine below.
-Incredible Stern swag pack, featuring translites, toys and more. It is in transit at this time and there will be an itemized list added to this the same day it is received.
-Two Multimorphic Translites and T-Shirt. (In transit)
-SIGNED Limited Edition Beetlejuice Translite by Christopher Franchi (photo below) encased in an awesome LED Lit Translite Frame by Brad at LIT FRAMES.
-Premium framed certificate commemorating the sale of the machine and describing the funding and thanking the purchaser.
-An offer, if the end purchaser accepts, to be interviewed by Matt and I on our podcast and thank them personally.
-If the buyer picks up the machine in person, I will put them up in a local hotel, and offer my game room free, for their use and up to two guests, the entire time they are in St. Louis in addition to joining us in person, on a special stream.
-Dinner and drinks with SSPP hosts Matt and I, in one of several restaurants you choose. We will happily pick up the tab for the buyer if you accept (requires personal pickup).

I will make sure that the sale is as simple as possible. I pride myself in my dealings with all buyers, and I want to make sure that this will be the most special machine you will ever add to your collection, especially considering everything that will come with it.

Now. The deets on the red devil:
Gorgar
Pros: Features a near perfect cabinet, beautiful backglass (minor flaw on the woman's knee), clear coated plus playfield, new flipper assemblies, snappy pops, slings and new rubbers with a perfect sheet of new playfield glass. To ensure perfect play-ability, it has Cliffy's incredible inlane guides so there is ZERO flipper hop and a perfect transition from the guide to the flipper.
Cons (very minor):
-The game inexplicably fires the trough coil one time upon first powerup launching a ball into the shooter lane. It has never bothered me and I simply plunge the ball and let it drain before starting a game.
-The player three and four displays are losing the lower bottom most segments. I will include 4 NEW displays if the purchaser desires to have them 100%. I preferred to keep them original, but you will have them, if and when you would like to make it perfect.
-There is VERY SLIGHT cupping on a few inserts. Most wouldn't notice, but I am very adamant about providing a very honest, detailed appraisal.

If you would like to help, but do not want to try to purchase this machine, please consider donating to project pinball, buy a raffle, (it would be awesome if you would note Cardinal Glennon with your donation/raffle) or just volunteer at your local children's hospital. I love this hobby & love the people in it. I think at our core, we are comprised of some incredible people with big hearts that when tasked with helping someone less fortunate... will rise up and show what we are made of. Especially in regards to children who face challenges that would scare any of us. I know, I was one of them.

Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely.
Jason Fowler

**Fixed end of sale date to read the actual 9/10/19.**

What a great effort Jason. Project Pinball wins as does buyer of this pin. Some really nice prizes come with it. Go kids.

#3 29 days ago

I listened to the podcast yesterday and I think that’s a great idea. Such a cool way to give back to the community and provide some fun to the kids and families at the hospital. I will donate some money for your cause Jason- my son has spent a lot of time in the nicu, so I personally know how great it is to have something like pinball available there.

Just an update for those interested. Max bid is now at 3k from iceman44

More has been added to the pot. We now have a professional Photo print that was provided from Mohr photography (Mike and his sister, good friends of the show). That photo is below.

Stern swag is in transit I have been told. Multimorphic swag is in hand. LED Litframe is in hand...and it is gorgeous. SO much so that I bought TWO for myself! lol Signed Bettlejuice trans is being drop shipped to the buyer direct from Mr. Franchi.

Spooky donated, countless others have donated, we will be sending all proceeds from our podcast/stream that we have gotten (bits mostly, but some private donations). Thanks to everyone! It has been hard to keep my eyes dry due to the outpouring of support for this cause. Sincerely.

PLEASE NOTE> The auction style format will conclude with the highest bidder being awarded EVERYTHING above and the machine at 12 midnight Tuesday evening. I am only human. Please place any bids you wish to make early enough so that it is accounted for. I want to be as fair as possible to everyone interested.

Thanks so much,
Jason
