    Quoted from gunstarhero:

    Selling my Judge Dredd - nice PF, cab is faded and drilled but otherwise pretty okay. Newer shiny topper and Pinbits deadworld mod. LEDs. Newer GPE flipper switches and opto boards for the tough and planet. Plays really nice. $3300 cash, trades considered (worst I can say is no thanks right? ) easy garage pick up in Elk Grove, just south of Sacramento.

    Great seller! Buy/trade with confidence!

    WCS94 posted on craigslist. Still would do $3,300 for a pinsider (but not going below that). Not doing delivery or shipping. See the craigslist add for pictures.

    Beautiful Stern Spiderman for sale, make an offer.....lower price then advertised for local Pinsiders!

    Anybody local want this Atari Airborne Avenger (signed by Steve Ritchie) project for $500 before I part it out and turn it into wall art? It has upgraded flipper mechs but pretty sure the game is not working at the moment, and it's been in storage for a few years now. Also the display board was refurbished when I bought it but I can't recall the name of the person who did that work.

    very tempting... I just wish it wasn't over 5 hours from me.

    #6362 28 days ago

    I played the GnR @ FGW on Saturday. Played great until the Platinum album came loose.
    Apparently this machine has had the VUK to the Bass Head burn up. I also noticed that the upper playfield flipper was barely rubbing against the ball guide preventing it from returning fully to the unenergized position quickly.
    All things considered it was a great couple of hours.

    Anyone here have an Ingo Twilight Zone clock board that they never installed, and that they would be willing to part with?
    With covid, Ingo is currently not shipping.
    I would replace the board when they become available again.
    I have checked most vendors and they are out of stock.
    Only looking for the Ingo board
    Thanks and Keep flipping

    Might be in the market for a good condition TOM or TZ next month. Drop me a note if you run across any 'deals' worth looking into...

    It does look nice, and the seller could sure use the money, but it's out of my 'last minute' budget.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    For 9k i would expect an absolutely pristine TZ, which that one isnt. 9k = 0 fade period.

    If you ask for a higher then average price, then you should add more pictures and tell the reason why it's worth that much.

    If you call taking a $1k loss on a 5 month old game with 200 plays a "solid offer" then you deserve to be ignored.

    Lose my number... you low ball me every time I sell a game, and then have the balls to call that a solid offer? Get lost! No wonder I ignored you...

    #6392 7 days ago

    A $1000 loss on HUO vs NIB is pretty standard. Heck , that’s what I lose on my games.

    Quoted from rolandthoms:

    Agreed. I had to progressively lower my IMDN Prem (one of the greatest games ever!) well past 1000$ off new for it to finally sell. Let the market speak. scheiny I hope you get a better offer. But nothing wrong with that offer, and also nothing wrong with ignoring it if you don't like it. No need to be rude though. This thread is one of my favorites on pinside since it's mostly drama free, let's try to keep it this way! Happy thanksgiving all, stay safe.

    #6394 7 days ago

    If a manufacturer is still making NIB machines for a specific title, and distributors are accepting orders, then your resale price on a used unit would likely be something lower than the MSRP. Given a game count of 200 games at perhaps 10 minutes per game, that means the machine has been used 2000 minutes or 33 hours. Not too much but it underscores the machine being "used".

    However, if the title is no longer produced by manufacturer, then the "market pricing" kicks in. Price can go up or down depending on popularity, condition, scarcity and landed costs (transportation and/or tax if applicable). In the end, sellers try to get the most they can, and buyers decide if a given price is worth the value to them. It's capitalism at it's finest.

    alright now, who wants to sell me their Deadpool or Elvira ?????

    Also - negotiation used to be a thing . Make a counter or atleast acknowledge the offer given and “ thanks but no “ . A little curtesy leaves the door open in the future for this or other deals/trades . I never understood people getting offended when a “ no thanks “ will do .

    Damn you are a far better player than I am if you are playing 10-minutes per game on average

    Your pin is sitting at $6900 with no takers. I offered $6500. You did not have the courtesy to respond.

    You also tried to flip a restored Fish Tales for $6000 that I had just sold you for $4200 earlier this year. You acted like you wanted it, but apparently you just wanted to flip it.

    I don't recall bidding on anything else of yours and certainly won't in the future as you are now on my Bad Seller and Bad Buyer list.

    #6399 6 days ago

    I’m all in at $6501.
    I’d love this one before Thanksgiving.
