a few rebuttal posts don't clutter up CL, most make me laugh...
what clutters up CL is companies like Urban Americana who post dozens of crappy items up for sale every day and put 100s of keywords at the bottom(including "pinball") so the come up with generals search queries

Quoted from ForceFlow:
Report them. It's basically spam at that point. They're using CL as their storefront, and it's kind of an abuse of the system.

15k shrek...fresh off route...
STERN's SHREK Pinball
COLOR LEDS INCLUDED!
Great working and looking machine that was a coin op on location from New until now (09/13)
Overall condition of this machine is a 9 out of 10. There are no major issues with paint/art - Minor wear on the bright green legs, machine has barely any marks on art. Header is in good condition.
Playfield has below standard wear for its age and there are no mechanical issues - completely cleaned up game ready to play.
This is a great machine for Home use OR back on a route to make some income. The machine has been well kept with a professional tech on hand to go over issues it's entire life. There is no mods or corners cut on this machine.
Quoted from skywelker:
And here's another of my favorites. His first ad for this EM for parts machine stated that he only bought it to steal parts out of because they are impossible to find. Well now that can be your problem for only $100. In this ad he also goes on to link to random ebay auctions for SS parts machines that haven't sold just to show you what a good deal it is!
At least he has 17 good photos with close ups for that POS... so many people on CL list machines for 4k+ with one blurry whole game photo from 18 feet away
Can this be real??? this guy wants to trade a MM for quite possibly some of the worst games made...has to be a fishing scam...
**TRADE** Pinball machine Medieval Madness - $1
I have a very nice Medieval Madness but it needs to go as I have grown bored with it. Willing to trade for a Popeye, Flintsones, bug Bunny Birthday Party, or other interesting pin. Game plays error free, playfield has no wear. Really, a nice machine.
CraigsList is not letting me upload images a the moment, I'll try again later. Contact me via email and I'll send you the pictures.
Quoted from Scsurfer:
Guy is legit. all his machines are in good shape. Bought one from him last week.
I bought 3 machines from this guy...he has over 40 games and not enough room for them...he does come across a little rough in e mails but if you call him up or meet him in person he is a good dude...he is also active on pinside
hey guys...one just like this sold on pawn stars for $9000...
1973 Bally's "Odds & Evens" Fun casino themed pinball machine in beautiful all round condition. Clark Gable look alike with a wonderful beauty queen on the glass. The graphics could work in any nice game room. The colorful backglass is in near mint condition nice clean cabinet and playfield wonderful condition for a 41 year old machine it plays like new.
I am the original owner and have taken excellent care of this machine. It is a classic selling for $2,000 to $3,000 from other locations. This model was featured on the TV show Pawn Stars and sold for $9,000. I am a private owner not a business. I just want to find a good home for this classic pinball machine. It has provided many great family memories.

hey guys...its fake...how can it be powered up if it needs a cord
the guy in the pic is Chris (The Captain of Captains Auction Warehouse)
look at the tats on his right arm its the same guy....this guy makes a living selling games
Quoted from movingpictures:
On the local forum, someone speculated that the guy in the picture is not the one selling the game.
The apartment owner is, and maybe the picture is the tenant from Facebook?
Or maybe the guy in the picture is the one who will kidnap and imprison you?
the guy in the pic lives in southern California...

crappyflash.jpg 62 KB
I just bought this game last night...I already have a flash with a fantastic playfield but a cabinet that is in VERY rough shape...this cab and coin door is in really good shape, and the previous owner sent all the boards out a few months ago for reconditioning (it came with the receipts,he spent $275 on board work and another $100 on parts) it also came with manual,schematics and lots of spare parts
The touch up work on the playfield is a joke but im going to put my playfield and backglass in the new cab with the reconditioned boards and keep a really nice flash.. then im going to put all the leftover parts together to make a playing machine that will be in rough cosmetic shape but be playable and sell it to cover the low price of the machine I bought.
how about a 5k Evel Knievel...
Don't miss out on this One of a Kind!
A 1975 Evel Knievel Pinball Machine signed by the One and Only Evel Knievel. The machine is great working condition and had a full service done by a qualified technician. There is some normal ware associated with a machine of this year. The playing field is not perfect but stills looks good. The back glass was signed by Mr. Evel Knievel at the 1998 L.A. Boat show and I have a picture to prove it. You will never find another pinball machine like this ever. This is truly a One of a Kind.
If you have any questions, please text me or call me. Buyer must make all shipping arrangements
Quoted from rcbrown316:
I might jump on this one. Free shipping on a pinball is rare. Look at the pile of money and jar of peanut butter next to it. wtf is wrong with people?

Ha... $500 bucks for that...just like everything else pin related, its rare

Quoted from jmountjoy111:
She is shippig it to Nigeria. She just has to give the buyer her bank account information and social security number so that he can make sure the transfer goes through. He will then send his man to collect the machine.
I believe he said he would be sending his "agent"...

Looking to sell or trade my origanal taxi pinball machine, this is the (marilyn edition), currently has (lola translight) but I just bought an origanal marilyn translight that will go with sale! The playfield was recently sent out for touchups and 4-5 coats of clear were added , but looks like crap compared to a cpr playfield! (That's why im selling) cab was also touched up and looks crapy! all new pop bumbers were added, as with led lighting and some new rubbers, the hard to reach rubbers i will leave for the next idiot that buys this thing, new flipper bats and superbands, new slingshot plastics,1 new ball 1 older slighty rusted ball ,some new coils(easy to reach coils)comes with manuals,keys, and extra working flipper board(was working long ago) also have a set of new ramp stickers(whole 5 piace set) that are not available without buying new ramps anywhere( but probably dry rotted?) also has added switch protectors .. probably more new parts that i forgot about? Playfield glass has some light scratches and deep gouges ,I ordered some new glass, so I will throw a new p.f. glass with sale, if it sells??no need for fuses anymore I just used tinfoil to permanently bridge the connections. Game starts and plays occasionally but smells like something is burning behind translight and bottom of cab? I've never actually seen flames or smoke? Pin is sold as is. Thanks for looking.

This is Not a cpr playfield, just a poorly touched up playfield from some unknown guy I hired ,Cpr playfields are the only way to go! Anything else is junk, just ask the 5 people that troll this section of craigslist every 10 minutes and they will tell you.
I was called out on the Pinball forum for my price being too high, thank you so much Neil! I should be ashamed of myself what was I thinking? 499.99 Takes it! I'll even deliver it on your schedule and pay for gas as well, stairs?up 3 flights of stairs? Not a problem! so so sorry everyone ,I did not mean to offend, thank God for the people that troll these ads to straighten out people like me, I should be slapped!

Limited to only 5,900 ever made- this iconic game has had one owner only, gently used and carefully stored. All ORIGINAL parts- not refurb. only serviced by licensed Game Doctor Owner.
Video of similar game in play:
The object of THE SIMPSONS/PINBALL PARTY™ is to help the citizens of Springfield to party like there's no tomorrow. The game features a talking-moving Homer head and Bart on a skateboard attached to a captive ball feature, as well as Itchy & Scratchy drop targets and Comic Book Guy. The garage door in THE SIMPSONS' house leads to the second playfield level which features a dot matrix color television, a monorail that transports the ball across the playfield and a couch that when filled with three pinballs starts multi-ball.
The Simpsons Pinball Party is based on the animated sitcom The Simpsons. The game is said to feature one of the most complex rule sheets that has ever been designed for a pinball machine featuring the ability to stack various modes and multi-balls on top of each other. Reaching the "Super Duper Mega Extreme Wizard Mode" requires an unusually large number of shots and only a few people have ever reached it.

Quoted from EvanDickson:
That doesn't look so bad. The machines appear to be in pretty good shape.
Quoted from davideokills:
Ya obviously a collector that doesn't want to give away his games for free and it looks like he has a lot more cool stuff in that garage. $500 per game on those titles doesn't sound too bad. Not a steal but hardly out of the ball park price range.
fair enough but here is his updated ad...evidently if you buy them all it will cost more than individual purchase...

Thanks for looking.
Quoted from TopMoose:
So... This is a scam, right?
Yes...they try to get you to use the email they provide (always a gmail) instead of the CL link....internet pfishing
EDIT:Forceflow always 27 seconds ahead of me...
Quoted from emkay:
You both got the balls to post but not reply? This was before fwiw.
You seem to really want to turn this into an arguement, don't you...they are not attacking you personally but you seem to take it that way.....oh and yes, the game is overpriced, thats why its in the craigslist laughs thread
Quoted from cosmokramer:
says he spent 6 months restoring this game...looks like he should have spent another month or 2 on touching up around the bonus inserts...
should look more like this...
well this pin has made another appearance on CL...for those who remember this popped up a while ago, I bought ($200)it just for a cabinet swap then sold it ($425)... it appeared on cl a few weeks later for $650...now its $800..
Horrible restoration of a once fine Flash pinball machine. This was bought by us sight unseen...yeah note to self, don't do that again. So our loss is your gain!
- It Plays!
- Back Glass is in good condition
- No issues electrically / mechanically - one weak flipper easy fix but I can't bring myself to work on it.
- LED's were installed...Lipstick on a bit of a pig but hey there are LED's in it!
- Its a pinball machine
- At some point someone fixed this by bolting on a metal sheet to the bottom....functional is the word.
- Please, if you are going to restore something be sure you know how to paint. The paint job is not very good?
- If this doesn't sell it will be parted out, which sucks because it is a functional, if slightly ugly machine.
So, 800 o.b.o. please don't contact me and offer something silly....or if you do at least make it amusing. Tell me a joke or something.
Not only do we have this **restored** Flash pinball for sale but we have genuine classic arcade machines and Pinball machines for sale also. So why not come buy our sales floor take a look, try them out and maybe have a free game of pinball...maybe buy another pinball machine too!
We are located in Redlands / Mentone and we are open everyday...errrr well ok maybe we are not open on every Sunday, you should probably call first though just in case I nipped out for a sandwich. Call or text for directions and hours....buy another pinball machine also...did I say that already?
I believe she asked for a game with a shaker...
If not I think Demolition man would work...
Quoted from 0geist0:
LEDs don't always photograph well so it's hard to say.
Quoted from EvanDickson:
In the seller's defense, I can see 3 and almost 4 joyride lights lit up on the backbox. I think this means it was a long exposure, which means the light exposed in the image would be 3-4 times brighter than you're going to see with your eye. So it's probably not so gouging up close.
probably right, I just looked back at my LAH photos and it really looks color bombed in the pics but not in person...carry on
Quoted from mhkohne:
'Thicker' playfield glass? That doesn't make any sense, any idea what they are talking about there? Obviously from the glare shown it's not really nice anti-glare glass. Are they just making shit up?
translation-- I broke the original tempered glass so I bought a cheap piece of plate glass that is slightly thicker and requires you to have someone help you cram it through the guides to get it up far enough to get the metal rail glass holder thingy locked in place
Quoted from gdonovan:
See the home version Elvis pin? One of 4 known!! $6800!

I almost spit out my coffee laughing, hell one was listed for free on a curb in the local CL.
This listing deserves its own thread...its gold!!
Says it super rare, then goes on to quote Ritchie as saying almost 20,000 of them made
This RARE piece is in good working order!
My kids love this game, but they are getting older and nobody plays it anymore.
I know it's a hard find and rare piece, so no low ball offers please.

Flash' was the first game from any manufacturer to have a dynamic background sound during gameplay. It is also the first game from any manufacturer to use Flash Lamps, which provide a temporary burst of flashing light intended primarily for the sake of its visual effect, in contrast to the usual playfield lamps that either provide constant general illumination or turn on and off only as indicators of specific playfield objectives or their point values. Designer Steve Ritchie comments:
I "invented" background sound at Atari, but management wouldn't have it, so I asked Randy Pfeiffer to create a continuously cycling complex sound that increased in pitch and speed of cycling, and he did both. That changing background added a tension and excitement that was never present in earlier games. That sound also broadcasted how well the player was doing. If you heard the only game that made a background sound in an arcade at high pitch and a fast cycle, all eyes were on you, sometimes gathering a small crowd in those days.
The production run of this game was far higher than previous Williams games. Steve Ritchie comments:
Towards the end of the run of Flash, I asked Jack Mittel, then-VP of sales, why we wouldn't try to push past the 20,000 unit mark. He replied, "We want to leave the market wanting."
At the Rio hotel in Vegas...they have a KISS mini golf area with a swag shop and I saw this for sale...
Quoted from DangerSem:
How to flip a pinball
1. Find a machine that has been for sale on Craigslist for at least a month or so
2. Post new ad right after previous seller's ad was taken down
3. Rewrite description from previous seller
4. Reuse photos from previous seller
5. $400+ price increase
First seller's ad for reference - https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/archive/51054
first sellers pinside ad says archived, not sold...
Quoted from bob_e:
1978 KISS PINBALL
All wiring unplugged to take apart for storage I have a couple of them I never put this one together it will need the glass redone its about 250$ to do that and assemble it and play
1500$ obo theyre not restored all original from 1978 never been touched!! Plus it gives the machine character!!
I like the brand new pack of balls and what looks like a box from Marco...
Quoted from dfrazer:
Not that this is anywhere related to an actual pinball machine, but in Rochester, NY, we have seen this same ad for just over 3 years now, renewed at least twice a week:
"Vintage Pinball Game Automatic Score Electric Pinball Deluxe Arcade"
I wonder how many "alert" emails and texts have been sent over the past 3 years for just this one ad? This is the downside of what can happen when people are offered something (in this case, Craigslist Ads) for free; they will just take advantage of it to the point of abuse, which may someday have the unfortunate side effect of some sort of "fee" to use the service.
I like how he list all the things that don't work, then states it's in very good condition
This guy is selling the back glass only for $895... I sent him a text asking him if the game worked properly and he was kind enough to reply that it doesn't come with the game, it's just the back glass....he also said he is accepting offers. This has been on the San Diego CL for over a year...
