    Hey, buy them all and you can save $50, awesome.

    Wow, this CL guy sure needs a reality check!

    #3252 3 years ago

    Just a another pinball "flipper", lazy, stupid, and/or potentially dishonest, who may not own the machines, or simply copied internet photos at worst case.

    If I was local, I would call the numbers, and confirm available of purchase. It may not be the same person.

    The real point to be learned now is LOCK UP your machines, be safe, and have them insured, as pinball machines are becoming more lucrative for thievery and resale. Personal losses are common, and resales of stolen property even more so.

    I have had people use even my personal game photos for games for sale in the past in the used market. Another reason I rarely sell these days except directly to other collectors.

    Cost is the least of concerns here.
    Knowledge is power.

    #3253 3 years ago

    Yep, those are just a bunch of regular rubber bands wrapped around the flipper. Plus in all honesty I don't know what is going on below the wireform on the right inlane. Is that little metal piece supposed to be there?

    #3254 3 years ago

    Did you notice the left lane guide?

    I always have to admire some of the redneck ingenuity that goes into some of these.

    What i have seen in used instead of a proper 75 cent rubber:
    - the ever popular rubber band
    - a hair tie (hey its kinda springy right?)
    - string
    - wire

    Needless to say when you see this kind of thing you can pretty much be assured the rest if the game is also a wreck in desperate need of rescue.

    #3255 3 years ago

    Actually, I'm not seeing anything with the left lane guide...

    And apparently that metal thing I mentioned earlier is stock, but I don't ever remember that being there on any of the TSPP I have played.

    #3256 3 years ago

    The flipper with rubber bands are a $1000 mod that clearly enhanced the value of any machine by an owner. Don't let anyone tell you differently, it makes the game very rare.

    If you want LEDs on top of the flipper bats that costs $500 extra. Requires at least 40 hours of work.

    #3258 3 years ago

    Key reading point regarding this ad:

    "I'm raising the price slightly because of massive interest."

    I guess this makes my prototype sample RS that was purchased from a WMS employee worth $10K.

    #3259 3 years ago

    Listed well below market value guys. They're going for 10k on Ebay!

    "Like new, Home use only, beautiful Roadshow Pinball by the amazing designer Pat Lawlor, you know, the guy that created legendary super pins like Addams family and Twilight zone. Roadshow is one of the other wide-bodied super pins he helped design and create. Featuring talking heads 'Red and Ted'"

    Who knew TAF was a super-pin? That's news to me.

    Who knew TAF was a super-pin? That's news to me.

    Would have made the game even more awesome though if he had designed the extra space. I am thinking a full Addams Mansion inclusion.

    I'm not sure if a dead DMD on this machine qualifies as minor.

    Quoted from Bbismuth:

    I'm not sure if a dead DMD on this machine qualifies as minor.

    Yup. It's a $400 part these days.

    #3270 3 years ago
    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Yup. It's a $400 part these days.

    Is that the cost of the big DMD? Maybe if you can find one.

    Game is really dusty too which makes me think about battery damage from sitting so long. Price is $3000 and I saw one this summer for low 2K.

    For an original yes. There is now also a RGB LED solution available, which is also about $400.

    Not pinball, but damn I'm in the wrong business if I built a top tier one with a 4ghz quad core for $1000 this spring and this piece is going for that much?

    They can ask whatever they want. It doesn't mean they will actually get it.

    That MAME cabinet looks awful too.

    It's a couple of jerkos on Chicago CL that do not like each other. The seller is a flipper in the Elgin/South Elgin area.......don't know who the guy calling him assclown is. The seller seems to have a few "fans" as he has been flamed in the past.

    Would love a pinsider to do a weekly vid-CAST of "The Best of Pinball Craigslist" with audio commentary. The material/jokes practically write themselves!

    Yeah I am sure you are right, but to publicly do this is wrong and immature. Some people really have too much time on their hands.

    I'm starting to feel like I'm never going to buy a game again with the ridiculous prices that people are asking for games these days. Here's a Last Action Hero and a Waterworld for $5000.

    chicago.craigslist.org link

    Here's the text:

    Getting ready to move, and would prefer not to put these machines in the garage or cart them to a storage unit.

    I have a Last Action Hero and a Waterworld machine. They have been both updated with LEDs and much more. Contact me if interested and I can go over the entire list of updates. $5000 takes both.

    Unless the "much more" is cash in the coin box, I'm guessing you'll be putting them in the garage or carting them to a storage unit...

    Gameroom Collectibles should be ashamed of themselves. This time it is not about "Disco Fever" (which by the way has still not sold in over 2 years).

    They are bailing.
    Good techs cost money, and they do not have either.
    I have visited, it is simply another case of a attempt to snag a few bucks and get out before the next market stall.

    "Modern art masterpiece of magazine clippings."
    I don't understand the relation of the images on the playfield to the TV show.
    It looks like Gun n' Roses meets LOTR in a WWE brawl with the transfer done on laminated inkjet decal paper.

    Maybe he has the original backglass in his closet, that might be worth a few dollars.
