    Seems fishy at first glance, but I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt and assuming the seller simply had a malfunction in his DeLorean and hasn’t realized it yet.

    #7252 4 months ago

    My cousin who is dying for an Addams sent an email to the seller and received this reply. Fishy…

    Tell him. Cash on glass. Social distance. I don't ship.

    #7254 4 months ago

    sent me the exact same email

    #7255 4 months ago

    Sounds like the DeLorean might be parked in Nigeria as well. Gotta make a few adjustments to the controls.

    Pin Wagon is up and rolling again after the holiday break. I'm heading up to Reno for a pick up this weekend and so far I'm empty on the trip up. Hit me if you have anything going that way.

    There is no glass. Or games. An image search shows that the first pic was stolen from Ebay/ Orange county pinball.

    Pretty sure the POTC on the right used to be mine.

    I was taken for 1000 bucks trying to buy a AC/DC in Sacramento a few months ago. That’ll be the last time I use Venmo or give a deposit to someone. A month later he was trying to sell the same AC/DC in LA. I believe he’s the same guy that was selling a Star Trek in SF a year ago. He’ll talk on the phone and had a sob story about his kid and needed money.

    So, when can I come over and get the Bally Escape From The Lost World?

    #7264 4 months ago

    Anyone looking for a Namco Bowl a Rama? I need to make some room. Message me with any questions. My buddy has a buy back agreement on it but I'm 95% sure he doesn't have room either.

    Yes. Reznnate has dibs on all my pins. But he has released me from our buyback agreement on the bowler. Sale pending

    I think you would have to get in a ring and fight fireball2 if I sold it to you. Of course then my wife would kick me out of the house for selling her favorite game. Hahaha

    Your bank can probably turn the request around in a day or two. If you have Bank of America you should be able to request online and then pick up at your local branch.

    The mirroring on your Creech backglass looks awesome. How is it lit up? Do the colors look right? Had a bad experience on a CPR Taxi bg.

    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    It's freaking gorgeous. Do the colors match perfectly when placed side by side with the plastic translite? No. The greens and purples are darker if memory serves, huge improvement. Capt Neo restored the playfield with a hot pink instead of the muted pink of the original. Also a big improvement. I have always been happy with the cpr bg. I have them on everything I can. I even have the color Centaur lol. Bad pictures. I use a 40 dollar phone.

    Now that I see the pics of Centaur lit and unlit, I realize I need to take that purple bulb out of the Queens butt

    #7278 4 months ago

    Thanks for the additional pics. I think you just cost me $300.

    #7279 4 months ago

    I agree with Norcalrealtor... it looks really nice lit up.

    Surprising how vibrant the colors are when lit. Do you have incandescent or LED bulbs in BG?

    Anyone know if Chris Fox is still doing his thing? About to post a game or two, and he's the only shipper I'd trust, otherwise cash on the glass.

    #7281 4 months ago

    Yes he is. Give him a call. I used him about 2 months ago.

    Used Chris recently as well. What are you looking to let go of?

    #7283 4 months ago

    You guys are making me miss my Creature! Probably my favorite translite of all time. Such a timeless classic, love it.

    #7284 4 months ago

    flippersticks thanks. Funhouse left the building a few hours ago. AFM, pending. Making room for Rush LE and GNR.

    #7285 4 months ago

    I have an Avengers Infinity Quest Pro with a Shaker and a knocker that I'd like to trade for something different. Maybe a Spider-Man or TNA or???

    May I so kindly request first shot if you ever decide to part ways with your Aerosmith? That game just makes me smile for some reason...

    I just saw this group, fellow NorCal pinside!
    After 35 years I’ve returned, and bought the Paragon I had in high school! I’ve been looking around for a second machine. I think I’d prefer early 90’s. Actually went to The Flipper Room today over lunch. Really glad to be back!

    I went to the Pinball Hall of Fame while down in Las Vegas for a cheerleading competition for my daughter. It brings me great joy to see how successful it seems to be. The parking lot was at least half full both days I went and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Besides the many pinball machines, it was fun to play some of the old “unique” games that have joined the collection. I highly recommend visiting- seriously only about 5 minutes from the heart of the strip!

    If someone is looking for a Comet, I'm getting ready to put one up for sale. I'll have an ad up once I get some pics, but you can see is it in Phoenix Games in Concord.

    Nice Genie! That game drained my pockets as a kid at the Woodside Bowl in the 70s.

    #7296 3 months ago

    I'm thinking about trading my CCRLE that I have on order. If anyone is looking for that game and has something on my wish list reach out.

    When I stopped in at Pinball Pirate to pick up my topper they just received a shipment of ST pros. That was Tuesday.

    #7298 3 months ago

    Is there any leagues in the Sacramento area? I know the Flipper room does Tuesday (and that place is great) just too far away.
