    When the shackles are loosened, I would be happy to come up there to buy. Sorry to hear that the Pin side of your business will be no more.

    Let us know how we can order online if you can please.

    Good luck with the Art/Framing side of your business!

    #5852 65 days ago
    Quoted from drypaint:

    This is going to be a real bummer to many TFR family and friends, I know it is for me…
    The arcade portion of The Flipper Room will not be reopening until further notice. With the unforeseen future of “returning to business as usual” looming in the distance; and knowing that filling our pinball venue w/ crowds where people are comfortable and do not have to wear masks could be quite some time away; we have made this difficult decision.
    We will be refocusing our energy on the art and picture framing division. APF-The Art of Picture Framing will expand and integrate its showroom into The Flipper Room galleries and will continue to offer excellent custom framing services and amazing art as it has been for almost 15 years.
    The Flipper Room will be expanding its online shopping experience with new pinball related art, gear and products. After all, we love pinball… we aren't giving it up!
    To raise money for all of these changes, we will be selling many of our pinball machines and offering a short time deal on art in the gallery. If there is a piece of art or a pinball machine you have been eyeing, now is the time to jump on it.
    We will miss seeing many of your friendly faces and pinball jive talk. Keep an eye out in the future for the next TFR pinball gallery and arcade. Until then, stay safe and be well.
    Cheers!
    Mike Moretti

    Very bad news. Sorry Mike

    #5853 65 days ago

    Such a bummer but I completely understand and respect the decision... I hope the best for your framing business!

    I am very interested in picking up a pin for home. Id be interested in getting some prices when you want to sell.

    Stay safe and thanks for giving me an awesome place to get into such an amazing hobby!

    I'm so sorry Mike. TFR was the best location pinball I've ever seen.

    #5856 64 days ago

    Check with abelelectronics - at one point he had an ECLE NIB with 2.0 boards. Not cheap, but an option.

    #5860 62 days ago

    Thanks for that. I did so and they only have YBR’s available.

    #5861 62 days ago
    Quoted from johnnyutah:

    Try Automated. Seems like they always have a deep inventory of NIB.

    #5862 62 days ago

    Automated has a few WoZ Ruby Reds but has a $1,000 dealer mark up on them currently. I tried them last week. I’d buy right now at $9,500 but not interested in their mark up.

    Pinball Pirate has YBR’s only currently as well.

    Might be a lost cause for now. Just thought I would throw it out there, I appreciate the suggestions. Thanks everyone!

    #5863 62 days ago

    Also posted this in the Playfield Buy/Sell/Trade topic, but would prefer to sell local and not ship.

    Bally Eight Ball, NOS
    Gottlieb Big Hit, NOS

    Stern Wild Fyre, NOS
    Data East Rocky and Bullwinkle, NOS

    #5864 62 days ago

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. We sold 18 pins in 36 hours! It was a marathon! We also kept more than 18 pins on the back burner. Funds were raised to put the company in a much stronger position coming out of this pandemic disaster than we were going into it.

    The Flipper Room will still be very active in the community until it makes sense to reopen the arcade. After all, who wants to play pinball with a mask on?!? We have Brian Allen finishing up our 2020 Annual Fine Art Print which will be for sale. I just saw the rough draft and it ROCKs! If you don't know his name, he just finished the Medieval Madness remake backglass, preceded by the Monster Bash and Attack From Mars alternate backglasses.

    We have a new online partnership with threadless to fulfill our online shirt sales, so look for many new and awesome pinball shirts and merch coming out.

    I know it's a shock to many, but we will all be so busy working on getting back to normal over the next 6 months that 2021 will smack us in the face very soon. Who knows what next year will bring, but I am sure there will be exciting news coming from us.

    #5865 62 days ago

    Nice to have known you Mike,maybe 2021 you can sponsor another GSPF volunteers event! Good luck,have fun.B safe!!

    So, does anyone have an extra set of Handles for Panic Park??
    Would love a set, used is ok.

    I figured end of July was to soon for a show.
    Guess our next chance is Pin a gogo in Oct? Then Banning in late Oct, will see.
    It does look like there will be no Expo in Chicago in Oct as well.

    #5890 50 days ago

    FREE! Chicago Coin Hollywood cabinet. Someone thought they were going to make a virtual pin and I guess lost interest. Solid cabinet, 95% stripped bare, side rails painted red, body has purple painted on one side. It's not pretty, but it's solid.

    Four used playfields: Gottlieb College Queens, Bally Eight Ball, Bally Silverball Mania, Williams Comet.

    Will ship if I have to, but shipping will cost more than the playfield! $30 each or all for $100.

    Mostly stripped, some minor parts and sockets remain on some.
