    pin (resized).jpg

    This pin was on my local Craigslist for just a couple of hours @ $250
    Gone now, but what pin was it?

    #5252 1 year ago

    Special Force. Bally Midway game.

    #5253 1 year ago

    Wow Frankenstein for ten bucks!

    ebay.com link » 1996 Sega Marry Shellys Pinball Machine Frankenstein

    Come on eBay. That account, newly hacked, probably has millions of dollars of items for sale, all placed within minutes of each other.

    That's the opening bid, not the sale price

    Oh it's worse than that. Look at the details. The seller is removing the bids and redirecting you to spoofed site to pay $1100 for it... with free shipping!

    Edit: aaaand it's gone

    #5256 1 year ago

    Well now I would think prices will fall now because everyone will go "look its only 9.95 on ebay now."

    #5257 1 year ago

    I just missed out on a nice Space Invaders on here from a great Pinsider. Still want one now so I figured I'd look around. Definitely not paying this much for one.

    Whether grossly unreasonable or not, I would love to know where people come up with these prices.

    Quoted from Colsond3:

    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.

    Yeah, I usually nope out of ads that turn into secret auctions.

    Luckily, I can usually arrange to pick up the same day or next day, so it doesn't seem to happen too often.

    Around here everyone seems to be able to pick up the same day. The people who start those auctions turn them around and sell at retail basically. I hate to use the dreaded “flipper” word lol. I typically tell the seller to just let the other guy have it. It’s just all part of the game

    Lol but since the ad specifically says “rainbow puke” I bet the person is on pinside

    Is 2k a bad price for a fully restored Fire! ? Provided it is actually restored that might not be such a bad price?

    #5267 1 year ago

    Idiots that don't deserve the air they breathe

    but who puts a pinball in the kitchen?

    I did once for a party. (Brought two games back from a show and hadn't taken them back downstairs yet) Don't have access to picks right now but it was a big kitchen!

    And then after you tell them to get lost you get yet another email saying "That deal fell through, do you still want it for the listing price?"... Then you know they were full of shit.

    I’ve actually had this work in my favor. At that point the table is turned and the price goes down. It seems to happen more when dealing with nonpinball people. They start hearing and seeing crazy retail prices and get big ideas that they are sitting on a gold mine. Then in the end they realize what they have is a piece of crap lol.

    I've got three in my kitchen right now.

    NOT on Craigslist but on Facebook...

    Antique Star Explorer pinball machine $1100.00 in Centerville MI.

    #5282 1 year ago

    The link I last posted was an ad for a $495 Medieval Madness. It was an obvious scam, but it looks like it was pulled down a few hours later. Hopefully he didn't snare anyone.

    Creature from the Blue Lagoon for sale!
    Whit a minute, didn't the actor Christopher Atkins call his wanker, Creature from the "Blue" Lagoon?

    Can anyone make out what pinball machine this glass is from?

    pasted_image (resized).png

    #5286 1 year ago

    How about a Data East The Simpsons for $9k? There must be 50lbs of quarters inside the machine that come with it.

    Not sure what Horoscope this guy follows...lol

    Quoted from fnosm:

    The two closest things that that has to do with pinball is that it's from a Stern (Electronics) Super Cobra video game, and that the artwork might have been done by Doug Watson.

    lol, in my area, there have been a set of skis that keep popping up every couple days. I can understand how maddening it can be.

    #5291 1 year ago

    Go jump on that. I bet it's legit.

    It's also actually in California, not Houston.

    Special collectors edition Addams for $14,000. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that looks suspiciously like a normal Addams with rust on the legs and some pretty good wear on the playfield....shouldn't it have gold trim and legs at least?

    Sure, Pat signed it and a manual that’s with it...

    #5293 1 year ago

    That is a regular Addams Family pin. Perhaps it is running the Collector Edition game roms. It has some problems (keys missing among other things). The seller seems to believe that the signature makes the game more than twice as valuable.

    #5294 1 year ago

    They only made two versions, right? The regular and the golds.

    The bookcase also looks weird, I don’t remember it rotating that far around.

    Yeah, that's not right.

    #5296 1 year ago

    The bookcase plastic is missing. And the gold manual is just a scanned copy that was printed--it's not an original.

    I bet the batteries are leaking too, especially since it's showing the memory reset messages on the DMD.

    #5297 1 year ago

    it has the gold rom, you know it must mean it’s a collectors item and worth a lot more. Lol.
