    Quoted from pezpunk:

    Reads like an unfunny racist joke to me. Some white idiot pinball person trying to sound black.

    Honestly, does anyone seriously talk like that? One of the best ads ever.

    I was waiting for someone to make fun of that. Any coincidence this add is from San Fran?

    "Oh my god. You are so fool of crap! Best title ever? NOT. One of the last pinballs made? NOT. Pinball manufacturing never came to a halt. Slow down, yes. But stern has been building pins for decades. And $7500 for this game is such a stretch. You must be smoking some jacked up crack!"

    Fully restored ROFL!!

    Quoted from fattdirk:

    Fully restored ROFL!!

    The language is a little bit over the top, but I'd buy that for $3100.

    #564 4 years ago
    Quoted from fattdirk:

    cleveland.craigslist.org link
    Fully restored ROFL!!

    This guy can't decide whether he has to sell or not -- it's an awesome read!

    1. First offer of $3650 will be accepted.
    2. I am not considering offers less than $3200.
    3. If you can meet me in the Cleveland, Ohio area I will accept $3100 non-negotiable lowest price.
    4. Please send offers -- we can negotiate.
    5. I am not in a position where I need to sell this quickly.

    #1 will never happen because of #2 an #3. LOL
    #3 nullifies #2. (sounds like he's attempting to give a non-shipping price, but it's just not clear)
    #4 nullifies #2 and 3, (if by offers he means "below his 3100 rock bottom price")

    He could have just gone with, "Asking $3650."

    Am I missing something? How can a guy offer 3650, when he tipped his hand that $3100 is just dandy, oh and he'll negotiate...

    Who cares what theme or condition it is in. Heck forget the pictures, It's a pinball machine people! Haha if he is a scammer then I don't think he's looking in the right place to scam people

    So I ended up getting ahold of this guy to see what pin he had. He got back with me this morning. It's a 1976 Williams Grand Prix for $2,000! I think he added one too many zeros.

    #571 4 years ago

    We all know there are stupid high prices often on EBay as well. I just laughed at this retarded price for a Pinbot. "Everything Works Except The # 4 Player Light" I assume they may be talking about the player 4 display. I guess I'll wait for a display problem so I could jack up my price by a grand.

    "HAPPY NEW YEAR"

    "PLEASE READ AND VIEW ITEM DESCRIPTION VERY CAREFULLY"

    "THIS IS A USA DOMESTIC SALE ONLY / NO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS"

    Up for Grabs is the Extremely Rare, Long Discontinued, Very Hard To Find, Sold Out Everywhere, Most Highly Sought After, Vintage 2000 16 Inch 3 Color Changing LED Obelisk Statue, produced by Lee Home Products Corp. Korea. This highly detailed Masterpiece Sculpture measures at approximately 16 Inches in Height from base to tip, 5 Inches in Width, and 5 Inches in Depth. This Obelisk LED Lamp Light Sculpture is "LOOSE" without it's original box, but is still in Excellent Condition, except for some minor chrome wear on one of the bottom corner edges of the base stand, as seen on the last thumbnail photo. Other than that, this Obelisk Sculpture Lamp looks great, considering that it is over ten years of age and is long out of production. The clear transparent plastic on the Obelisk is still in Excellent Condition, without any signs of cracks or scratches. This Obelisk Sculpture has a couple of button settings, where the LED Light Coloring changes in sequence from Red to Blue to Green every 3 seconds automatically, or it can be set to hold the color of your choice. The Obelisk operates on a AC power adapter, which can be plugged in to any wall outlet.

    Secure this Extremely Rare Iconic Collectors Piece while you still can, as these will never be Reproduced Again and is the Only One that I have Available in Stock "AN EXTREMELY RARE FIND"

    NOTE: There is a Small Video Clip of this very same 16 Inch Obelisk LED Lamp listed on Youtube.com for you to see it in Action, just type in 16 Inch Obelisk LED Lamp.
