    At that price those are called "features" or perhaps "patina", but never "flaws".

    Flipper wear is from the band when they signed it they got some games in. You know they all have a bunch of bulky rings.

    So aside from the fact that he's asking way to much for this game, did this guy never pass English in school? I may only have a high school education, but I can at least write something that is halfway presentable and readable for shit's sake.

    And if any of you comes up with some silly ass run on sentence, this entire class is gonna feel... my... wraf! Now, where is A-A-Ron? Is there an A-A-Ron in here?

    I've seen that video many, many times. It's funny every time. Around Packer-land we hear the "A-Aron, you just done messed up" any time Aaron Rodgers does something bad.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that post is a joke just to rile Pinside and r.g.p.

    Because it's perfect.

    #5224 3 months ago

    I thought the same thing when my friend was reading it to me. There was no way that somebody would be able to push all of those buttons. It had to be a troll post. But then I saw on the map where it was located and that is entirely possible.

    Here's a delight. Non negotiable, he says. Very desirable, he claims. Ok.

    At least he has a certificate of authenticity that he registered the serial number! Everyone knows that adds at least $1K to the price tag.

    One more! For the price, you'd think it'd come with flipper rubber.

    I've noticed on some of these rare high priced machines that they will get them working and do all the mechanics of the internals of the pinball but the cabinet has not been touched. If it's over a grand the cabinet should be spotless! EM of course.

    I've discovered the wonders of buying diodes and other components from ebay, where you can get a pile of 50 of them for literally $1 with free shipping. It takes a month to arrive from china, but the cost can't be beat. I'd offer him $10, and I'd still feel like I'm grossly overpaying!

    Slightly OT, an Ebay scammer whack-a-mole, who keeps relisting an "HUO" Black Hole through hijacked accounts. Been up at least 3x so far. Below market "buy it now" comes up in an image when you open "see full item description". Other Items on offer: cameras, high end bikes, etc.
    ebay.com link » Gottlieb Black Hole Pinball Machine Leds Huo

    EDIT: $5.49 to start, can still see the game on the 1st page of results, but the listing was pulled (again).

    #5236 3 months ago

    I guess people really do fall for that "under market price, Buy It Now" scam... I've never bought a game that wasn't a face to face cash transaction. I buy games from people I already know locally and bought one game from a guy I met at an out of town show. But I would never send a payment to someone I've never met in person (eBay, Craigslist, Pinside, Facebook, etc.). If it's a game I want badly enough, I'll drive a 10 hour radius and pick it up myself. But it has to be from someone that at least knows someone I know. I'm not saying everyone I don't know isn't trustworthy, you just have to be careful.

    Some guy selling Monster Bash on CL for $16k denver.craigslist.org link

    Is this guy serious? If this is a pinsider, I sure hope that machine is NOS, fully serviced, absolutely flawless, never been played, and has some gold plated hardware. And is #1. Sure MB is a great game, but $16k?

    Yeah, I've seen quite a few of his ads in the last 2 years or so. He's a retailer of sorts and I think I heard he's a flipper but doesn't have a voluminous amount of games. Games in the kitchen is odd, unless you're pin-theming your house and it's a Diner.

    5,695 for aa so-so Fathom? This seals the deal for me "It's original paint job makes for a great retro look." At least shipping is only $3.00!

    #5247 3 months ago

    This one was just $200 yesterday. Must have gotten a lot of interest so over doubles the price.

    Quoted from Buzz:

    Yeah Buzz, I walk away from sales like that frequently. I've never raised the price after listing a game. Doing so is disingenuous and ridiculous. If you were good enough with the first price, don't try to raise it and gold dig.

    Not into bidding wars anymore either. Love it when people now email you back after you agree to the original price and say "I just got an offer of $XX, (which is above what they listed the game for). They want to come today. What is your offer?"

    There's always another one at some point. Well, usually.
