    This has been gracing my Craigslist search in Chicago for months. I'm tempted to buy it just to make it go away.

    Quoted from c508:

    Yeah dude was very strange and I got the impression he came into a large sum of money and promptly blew it all on shiny things then got upset that he couldn’t continue to spend at that level once it was all gone and also because he wasn’t getting the respect he (felt he) deserved on Pinside...
    I was going to buy his MB but communications were so erratic and bizarre that I passed and am now extremely glad I will be getting a much cheaper and better MBr LE instead.
    Also, I suspect some of his games have been stored in an unheated garage with some temperature swings due to rotating in and out of house (though he probably stopped doing that once his interest in pinball peaked and maybe they have been sitting in that lineup since he quit Pinside?).

    Those pics are from the games in one of his bedrooms, which is the overflow from the basement. More overflow in the living room. Good stuff. I purchased the Mustang LE off of him back in January. None in the garage, dont know why selling all, dude probably getting married! HaHa

    Im sure this one has been talked about before because it seems like it is always in all the for sale ads. But I had to comment on it. What the heck are these people trying to sell? Their ad is for a pinball machine right? Movie prop? This line gets me: "This Machine is from Los angles Hollywood Area! And Owned by a person of importance but who’s identity has been requested not to be disclosed!" WHO CARES!!! Why don't they show more pictures of the actual game instead of their crappy photoshoped collage of the movie. And the price, GEEZ! Im by far NOT the price police, in fact I always feel sympathetic to peoples prices. I feel price a game at what you feel is right. But you must understand the market prices if you really want to sell your game. In this case I feel like they really dont want to sell this game but scam someone. Its a whole lot of fluff and keywords like "Movie Prop" to get you to click on their ad. Which also makes no sense to me why they would pay for a Ebay ad when it will never sell. I wanna say to these people "Get a clue and stop clogging up ads list and wasting pinball peoples time" YES, I know I can simply browse past the ad, but every time I see it, it makes me think they are trying to Scam someone. Maybe this is a joke and I just don't get it. Ok sorry for the rant. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas. Carry on.

    It was 25k when I asked him why it was so much and what was so special about it. His response was "you don't own it". That was like a year ago. Right after that he relisted for 50k. Lmao! I should message him again.

    This guys never gives up. It was $100K at one point, so this is a bargain!

    #6067 1 year ago
    Quoted from wolfemaaan:

    so this is a bargain

    Ha, what a deal. 7k for a crappy game that doesn't even have MJF call outs, instead has his "likeness." Don't get me wrong, I like the Back to the Future game, but not at 7k. I bet they don't even have the game.

    There's a few others with a similar price. What's the catch this time? They're not selling a photo or a receipt are they?

    #6071 1 year ago

    IDK, I looked at, and reported, all of them expecting the usual empty box or bill of sale or whatever but none of that.

    Hacked eBay account is my guess.

    This is a recently shopped Bally's Revenge From Mars pinball machine. The playfield has been recently shopped with new rubbers and LEDs. It looks and plays great. The cabinet is in good condition with some wear of the cabinet artwork from typical use in a few places (please see pics). It is in very good overall condition and includes the original CRT which works perfectly.
