    You are all missing out on this sweet deal!
    Only $400!!!

    Quoted from alexmogil:

    So it's really got a lot going for it. If I searched for the term "Johnny Depp balls" I would have found it.

    Indeed. And they just dropped the price to $375. What a steal!

    Quoted from Puffdanny:

    Who the hell looks for a zizzle?

    Well, actually, I was looking for one not too long ago. And I found one, for $50. It was donated to a high school engineering class, and they immediately started hacking on it. First thing up was fixing the bumpers and power supply. Then, they upgraded the buttons. This year, I think the whole thing is being rethemed and rewired, with an Arduino driver and a Raspberry Pi running MPF.

    Those might be the best pictures I've seen in a craigslist ad so far.

    A bit overpriced, I think.

    #4469 2 years ago

    This guy keeps popping up with the same ad. I actually got a good deal on some legs from him, but I always chuckle at the ad:
    "This sale is like your first date when you were a youth. If you never had the courage to ask her out, you never would know what could or could not be."

    #4475 2 years ago

    It would be kinda nice to have a name, I think.

    Quoted from Travish:

    So if her breakup wasn't fairly new sex would be ok? Sound like her ex found out about her sextracurricular activities.

    Maybe this is actually a dating post. She's clearly looking for a white knight who likes fishing and astronomy, and is free to drop everything and help a damsel in distress.

    #4483 2 years ago
    Quoted from Travish:

    Oh i get it. Fishing and astronomy, long walks on the beach looking at the stars.

    And handy with a patch kit!

    #4486 2 years ago

    Crazy. I paid $50 for the one I donated to a school, and I think that that is about the best price I would offer.

    #4488 2 years ago
    Quoted from apLundell:

    That was probably back when they were still in production. They seem to go for about $250-350 now.
    (I assume it's because they're the only thing less than full-size that isn't completely a toy?)

    No, that was about 3 or 4 months ago. Another one went for that a week before I bought mine, and there was one a few miles away for $80 last month.
    Play one without an update(of buttons if nothing else) and it's just a terrible game.

    #4498 2 years ago
    Quoted from apLundell:

    Are ebay prices that far out of whack for real machines as well? That doesn't seem possible.

    In general, I only go to ebay for parts. Anything else is local or craigslist. I also collect vintage scuba gear, and the same thing happened there. Ebay was great for a while, and now the prices are skyrocketing.

    Quoted from Jerickso77:

    The KC market seems pretty bad in general. Granted , I'm new to the scene but I've spent the past 5 months trying to find an older SS within my paltry $1,500 budget and there's nothing.

    There was The Incredible Hulk in Lawrence last month for $300. You might keep an eye on the Manhattan and Wichita lists, too. I see a couple of machines in that area that could probably be bargained down to $1500.

    Quoted from Colsond3:

    And what the hell did he do with the power supplies from the games?

    Every Zizzle I've seen has either had a missing or damaged power supply, so I suspect that they were weak and easily destroyed. I bought one for the local high engineering kids, and the first thing they did was rebuild the power supply because of exposed and frayed wiring.

    Well, he's shirtless and fighting a bear. Not sure why that's considered naked. Of course, if you are in a knife fight with a bear, you might as well be naked.

    In case you were wanting to spend $600 on a Zizzle today....

    #4829 2 years ago
    Quoted from merccat:

    How aweful!! Hell he would have to pay me at least 250 to take it.

    Looks like a fairly trivial mod to fix it: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/star-explorer-1977-modification-for-independent-flipper-action

    I keep an eye out for these going cheap in decent condition, just like Zizzles. They can be a good "intro to pinball engineering" system that I am not going to sink much money into. And I'm not going to cry if the kids ruin it, either. :/

    The link I last posted was an ad for a $495 Medieval Madness. It was an obvious scam, but it looks like it was pulled down a few hours later. Hopefully he didn't snare anyone.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    but some people seem to also use it when they just mean something old and original

    The term that they are looking for is "old school," which is, itself, an old school term. "OG" in this context is just dumb as hell.
    Unless this is some oblique reference to the gambling history of early pinball. But, frankly, I think anyone using "OG" un-ironically is likely not cognizant of that history in the first place.

    I like how they didn't even bother to find a picture of the right machine: sfbay.craigslist.org link

    Quoted from Scotty_K:

    I guess one man's trash is another man's treasure, indeed.

    The original Nintendo games are quite valuable. I repaired a Mario Cement Factory game recently, got a decent price for the work and the guy still made a killing selling it.

    Quoted from MichiganDad:

    It’s vintage

    My grandpappy played with one of those in aught three. He handed it down to his children as a prized family heirloom.

    That must be from Monster Bash 2.

    Hell, I have a Zizzle sitting in my garage right now. I'd be willing to part with it for $1000. What, no takers?

    How are you guys not jumping at this? It sells for $1500!
