    Visited both Phoenix Games and Flipper Room on vacation last Monday and Tuesday nights. You guys really keep your games in amazing condition. Concord is quickly becoming my favorite spot in NorCal for pinball. Everyone is super friendly at both locations as well. Thanks for the fun, you guys. Keep up the awesome work. Happy Thanksgiving, all.

    Hi folks,

    Want to sell my Deadpool pro, about a month old, very low plays.

    If you have anything interesting to trade, send me a PM. Would rather sell, but you never know.

    Devil's Dare- $1000. This game was at our Lodi league location for a few years. It went to PAGG two years ago and GSPF this last year. It's currently at Mrgone's in Rancho Cordova. I believe the only issue it experienced at GSPF was the need for a new coin door lock.

    Guardians (well the first one anyway) IS the best movie ever... hehe... but yeah, throw "Man of Steel" on a continuous loop on all your TVs and then hit 'em with GOTG and you should be fine.

    did you see this one?
    sfbay.craigslist.org link

    #5229 10 months ago

    That one looks very rough. Definitely a project. Good restoration candidate for someone.

    #5230 10 months ago
    Quoted from pinostalgia:

    did you see this one?

    Yes I did.

    So my thoughts so far with my search for these early SS games: over priced for what the condition is.

    That $1700 game is worth maybe $1000. It it would take lots of $ to make it into a nice game, that is if you could find the parts and are willing to spend many hours fixing it up. I'm sure someone will buy it though.

    I know the price of new games is going out of sight, but a NIB Stern pro is like $5500 shipped. These games are new, everything works, no need to spend hours sourcing parts, stripping cabinets & repainting, buying a new playfield for $800 (if you can find one) and swapping out the old one with new plastics and associated playfield mechs and parts.

    I realize that some will find this post annoying, me sounding like a whiner. I guess I'm just unhappy with not being able to find what I want I think is a fair price.

    This used to be more of a hobby where people exchanged or sold things more in that vein, now it's more like a profit center.

    #5233 10 months ago

    Anyone have a WPC style cabinet for sale, by any chance?

    #5234 10 months ago

    Pricing is hit or miss with early SS - depends on the seller.

    I try to price my machines at a fair price.

    Sold a Phoenix that was in good shape last month for $500 (boards were updated with new capacitors, etc.), playfield, backglass, and cabinet were nice.

    Will have a Williams Contact for sale soon - probably price it at $600 - boards are system 6, new capacitors, some tip 102s, new resistors, NVRAM installed. Playfield is in great shape but will need cleanup and new rubbers. Only downside of the machine is that someone spray painted the cabinet black.
