    400 bucks gets you this beauty, not sure if HUO or not...

    That looks the the ultimate end result of putting a pinball machine on your back porch...

    Now I can't say the prices are outrageous on this ad- but the closing line is hilarious!!

    " All prices are firm. Buy all three for $9500 and save $100! "

    chicago.craigslist.org link

    #4354 2 years ago

    I hate to post this here because I'd really like to buy this pinball for $1500

    But I swear I remember the picture of this same pinball being posted before.

    Scam?

    My favorite part (aside from price and condition) is his comment that "Both were working when we put them in storage many years ago".

    You might as well say "both worked when they came out of the box"...

    I'm sure he considers the "Gunsmoke" to be near mint to warrant the price...

    Quoted from playboywillis:

    Ouch, a pinsider makes it into the Craigslist laughs thread...

    I think the save $100 on all 3 is what get's him the honor. If I buy all 3 I sure as hell better save more than a lousy 100 bucks!

    He was selling both a Fire and a P.O.T.O. at one time. I think he has lowered his price on POTO.

    Sorry if this is a repost but 12,500 for a Dirty Harry is a laugh.

    Been for sale for weeks if not longer, I have not even bothered to make an offer.

    Gunsmoke worth maybe $200, tops.

    Another Phoenix CL Ad. Screen Shot 2017-07-12 at 9.03.24 PM (resized).jpg

    #4366 2 years ago

    I think these are jokes half the time

    #4367 2 years ago

    LOL! Yeah, I suspect that one is a bit of satire.

    #4368 2 years ago
    Quoted from HankScorpio:

    Another Phoenix CL Ad.

    The photo is from the IPDB.

    #4369 2 years ago

    So it's definitely a circlejerk for this very thread I'm sure

    The description in the ad is hilarious. Definitely a joke, even with the extra 0 on the price

    #4371 2 years ago

    i'd sell my GNR for $9500 in a second. Hell, i'll even knock $1500 off that price and make it a flat 8k.

    #4372 2 years ago
    Quoted from HankScorpio:

    Another Phoenix CL Ad.

    I saw this and thought, 'He forgot to mention that the band comes with the game.'

    #4373 2 years ago

    My favorite part "you can look it up, it's $155 on eBay, so it's priced right"

    Screenshot_20170713-090138 (resized).png

    #4374 2 years ago

    Or you can look it up on Ebay and see that there are not bids and that is did not sell last time at $110. Why they increased the starting bid by $45 after it did not sell the first time is beyond me.

    #4375 2 years ago
    Quoted from HankScorpio:

    The text in the ad was also lifted from the IPDB.

    LIKE NEW!

    I am relatively new to this but aren't those broken and dry rotted rubber rings sitting on the play field by the flippers?

    Going through divorce... wonder why?

    #4377 2 years ago

    I know this one isn't craigslist but man, $2500 for this when that backglass is almost completely gone. HAHAHAHAHA... Also you've got to love that helicopter topper mod hahahha (I honestly think it's just being used for storage but who knows). I wonder if keeping a pin in the laundry room would cause humidity issues and lead to planking I doubt it but who knows.

    I have been looking for the rare and elusive "UCHDO" for a while. Thanks!

    Quoted from Insanity199:

    Hahaha UCHDO. Hey that's a new title right maybe forceflow will create us a new game entry

    Thanks vdo - Ill have to check the gameplay on youtube- was sure I was going to jump on the Sega MSF but watched a video and the guy yammering "millions" seemed a little annoying.

    Not CL, but they couldn't sell their Williams Triple Strike at $975 as a "Buy it Now or Best Offer"

    ebay.com link » Williams Triple Strike Pinball Machine 1975

    So they relist the game with a "Buy it Now" of $1,150

    ebay.com link » Williams Triple Strike Pinball Machine 1975

    Perhaps its the "rare solid white #1 pin rollover"........

    #4384 2 years ago

    Again, not CL, but ummm........$43.25 for basically a piece of old glass ?

    That description is hilarious! What a crock! Love the blue door and legs. He is right about one thing: "You won't find another one"! Sheesh....

    #4389 2 years ago

    i think that's the game that someone had at expo with the "custom" playfield paint job.

    About 2300 too high. I informed him.

    #4393 2 years ago

    Letgo good to go here? I really wonder if this guy is a Pinsider. I just asked him if he was willing to compromise on price on either of these, and he told me to go to eBay, insulted me ( because I'm the one with severely overpriced games listed) and then blocked me. I sent him one message asking about price. Every game he has listed is $3000, no matter what the title. What an ass.

    Woman on the scooter has her top on, so I don't think so.

    That custom job was pretty damn nice.

    #4395 2 years ago

    Idiots are out in force at all times! I offered $300 for a non working night rider. He blew me off and raised the price from $600 to $1500 on Craigslist! Good luck with that....

    Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:

    it was pretty sweet. Several people asked me at expo if that was my custom work, but I could not take credit for it.

    The sad thing is despite the titles reputation of being a little light on action I'd be willing to pick it up just on the artwork alone.

    $2000 for a "D-list" pin is just crazy.

    Are there any links to this? I'd like to see it.

    #4399 2 years ago

    i'm sure someone took a picture of it. Korn probably has a good shot. he takes pictures of everything.
