    Addams Family $1200..... "plugs into wall"
    detroit.craigslist.org link

    I laughed out loud when I saw this one Wednesday. I also wonder who stole this pin if it actually works when you plug it into the wall. I never got a reply.

    I don't get people... even though I would never pay that much for one I inquired with a few simple questions, have topper, have card dispenser, any panel overlay pealing...as none of these could be determined from the 2 pictures of the game. I get "really want to trade for a pinball" as a response. That's it. So I assume it has pealing and no topper or card dispenser, which makes the asking price ridiculous and worthy of this hall of shame.

    Slugfest pinball machine in great condition. Great working game plug and play. LEDs added and playfield cleaned recently.

    Best baseball game ever made by Williams

    Quoted from wierdeer:

    I didn't try to steal the deal. I came with a strong offer off the bat via email trying to solidify a sale. she told me she had someone else make an offer that was lower, told me it was hard to refuse my offer, thought about it and took the lower offer, I thought it was funny posted it, called her stupid which I guess offended some people here and you people freaked out. Attacked me and yeah I lost my cool...end of story! I'm over it and you all should be too!

    So just curious, you emailed her right off the bat offering almost twice what she was asking? Why would you do that? Why would anybody do that? I suppose to be nice to the seller if you feel they are low balling the machine because they just don't know any better. But to offer that on a first e-mail without even meeting the person I find hard to believe. Offering $400, being told it's sold, than counteroffering $700 in an attempt to outbid the original buyer just sounds more plausible, unfortunately. I think for most of us if it's sold, you move on end of story.

    This is funny! Someone else doesn't like the inflatable clown head guy on Chicago CL
    chicago.craigslist.org link

    Yeah I laughed out loud reading that, hilarious. I want to shake the guys hand who wrote it. I did look up the inflateable clown head, that would hurt...

    Quoted from Spg101:

    Guy told me this was a "mint" machine and had just been redone. Notice anything wrong, missing???
    houston.craigslist.org link
    He relisted it after I asked a few questions, like turn it on...

    Well lol on it being 'mint', but playfield wear is minimal compared to the beater I have. That said it's a really fun machine and I think his asking price of $600 is fair if the game is in working order.

    See the home version Elvis pin? One of 4 known!! $6800!
    ebay.com link » 1 In 4 Known Super Rare Elvis Presley Original 1978 Pinball Machine
    I almost spit out my coffee laughing, hell one was listed for free on a curb in the local CL.

    "technically this pinball machine should not have not been produced"...so he is saying they never produced this game, but they should have and here it is...

    Quoted from dfrazer:

    This one has literally been on our local CL for nearly 3 years, renewed every 3 days or so. Started at $50, then 1 year later down to $40, then after another year down to $30. At this rate, it should get moved to the 'Free' ads in ~3 more years......

    "........The Pinball Machine is Not Working......."

    would be fun to meet up with seller, buy the thing, than get a sledge hammer out of trunk and smash it to pieces right there.

    I wonder if the scoop was throwing the ball straight down the middle and this was somebody's idea on how to circumvent the problem rather than fix it properly...

    I think there might be an antique meat slicer war brewing in my area. There seems to be competition and rivalry in any aspect of collecting.

    If they ever made a SAW themed pin that would make a nice topper.

    Bring your hammer

    Lmfao...I work in Rochester so thanks for picking up that thing, I was heavily considering it. Now install a 3 spinning disc mod on it.

    So question is does the seller finally ever delete the add...

    #5578 1 year ago
    Quoted from steviechs:

    The listing is gone. More importantly it won't get reposted 3 times a day for the next 6 months
    The best part of the transaction was when she asked if I was a big Johnny Depp fan.....?????

    Lol, you shoulda spiked it on the ground right then!

    I did not realize this thing was so small. How do they put this thing up on legs? If you watch the video, I know what your thinking, but don’t say it.

    Great for a retro style house or man cave.
