I was looking around at videos and posted pictures of Twister the other day. I was mainly looking to see how leds/mods looked. I noticed one for sale on pinside and it looked very similar.... Dirty fire truck,Cracked playfield left out lane(screw from below),paint on left flipper button,Scratches on the cabinet same and wear around the spinner same. The updates in the game are purple cliffys on post,chase muti ball skirt and rule cards removed. These pics are of my game.

Make sure you Report it so it can be taken down if it is a scam.

#6 10 months ago

I'm going to buy it, but I'll need your address so I can come pick it up.

This is the supposed scam ad. But the pics are different and have different games beside it.
Might be you both own a routed twister with common wear.

So guess the question is where did you buy yours from and was there a t2 beside it when you bought it?

Highly unlikely that these are different games. Also, this guy is a new user, here to sell off his collection. He made a small donation to get verified. This is a scam.

kevinm45 has to be a good guy 'cause he donated to pinside !

#11 10 months ago

Left flipper set lower than right on both, dirt on top of left flipper rubber exactly the same.

You are probably right. We should get a mod to look into it.

I will offer him 700 dollars send by western union as payment for the pin. Think he'll sell for that?

#14 10 months ago

I bought from a guy in Evansville this is not his place.

#15 10 months ago

Send him a picture of the machine with this thread pulled up next to it.

Or just send him a picture of your butt.

#17 10 months ago

Well it looks similar based on the cab wear and the screw up through the play field. If it is in fact a con at least he is only selling games you can see in the lineup of the pictures... A smart and committed con at least.

#18 10 months ago

Contact the guy you bought it from and ask him if the setting in those pics looks familiar.

Game definitely looks to be the same. Kind of creepy!

#19 10 months ago

Whats funny in his other ads is that he has a Flintstones right next to a Twister.

https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/58575

These must be old pics (likely) or he has a Twister that has the exact same wear as yours.

Maybe Gunnut40 is the scammer! Let's get him!

Woah put those pitchforks away. I'm just pointing out something I noticed. I don't know if zmeny has any pictures. I bought it on sight.

#21 10 months ago

This guy is probably a Vandy fan Gunnut. Salty about last nights loss to our Cats.

Stupid price for a Twister in kevins ad. Also 5 listings by this guy. Always seems weird to me and suspicious when brand new members list so many pins there first day on pinside.

No activity sense, no thread contributions, no postings other than machines for sale... hackles up for sure.

I would think so that was a awesome game!

I will give you second dibs on it which won't be for awhile. The magnet spinner and the fan are awesome! I know they are gimmicks but I like them....a lot. I'll keep you posted on what I do in the sega thread.

#30 10 months ago

I dunno. After looking at all his ads I've concluded they're either all legit or all scams. I'm leaning towards legit.
Maybe the screwhole is common in Twister. Matching dirty and misaligned flippers are harder to explain.
New member with five games to sell; maybe he has unforeseen bills to pay.

#31 10 months ago

Possible the game in the ad is yours and the photos had been taken before zmeny got it.

Score cards, purple post sleeves, wear on the right inside edge of the cabinet seems to be different than yours. But the white mismatched rubber, screw, cab wear touch up only on one side and not both sure makes it seem hard to say they aren't the same .

#32 10 months ago

You are also missing lamp spotlights on the right side

#33 10 months ago

Pirated photos are common place today it seems. I had a guy steal my pics of my TAFG and try to sell the game to a guy in the UK. The guy in the UK contacted me to report the scam. The scammer contacted me via email to request the high resolution photos. Pretty bold!

#34 10 months ago

So.... what happened with this?

#35 10 months ago
Quoted from 27dnast:

So.... what happened with this?

I sent an offer on it, never heard back...

#36 10 months ago

The wear pattern (missing paint) above the spinning disk is exactly the same. No doubt, same machine in those pictures.

#37 10 months ago

We sent messages to kevinm45 to clarify where the photos came from and to provide a verification image, but he never responded or even logged in. So, all his ads were removed from the marketplace.

#38 10 months ago

I don't want to piss off anyone who calls himself a gun nut, but maybe Gunnut40 doesn't even own a Twister and he's posting this to convince the rest of us that it's a scam just so he can low-ball the seller and pick it up cheap because his is the only offer?

(just kidding)
