Quoted from Colehvac1:
Can you send some pics of condition?
Em's or hookers?
She wanted $1900 for a Stellar Wars.
There was no deals there, I saw lots of stuff going for 2x-3x the going rate and she was not haggling. I wished her good fortune and beat it out the door.
I will look up the gameplay and get back to you shortly.
Will pass on it, thanks! GLWS
Quoted from BeaglePuss:
Players Dredd for $1,800 firm.
Played it at AR2, one of those titles I really wanted to like but could not take a shine to it. Might have been the location, too much noise with too many people milling around makes it hard to focus.
I mean... Its Dredd!
All functional and ready to go, always interested in trades even if partial project.
1976 Gottlieb Spirit of '76 Pinball Machine - $550
1975 Williams Big Ben Pinball Machine - $500
1966 Williams Full House Pinball Machine - $550
I'm working on a road trip October 1st to pick up a pin east of Baltimore and drop off a pin at the same time. I have these three pins I can bring along at the same time for a killer price as I need to free up space.
Please PM if interested. Gary
Spirit of '76 $500
Heavy repairs to cabinet back and bottom (done right, see posting!) graphics repainted, cool 70's graffiti, backglass touched up and sealed, boards serviced and adjusted, score reels gone through, great chimes, many new play field posts from PBR, sealed back glass, missing inserts replaced. 2-3 playfield plastics have cracks from ball strikes, play as is or order new set for $75 from PBR to really dress it up. Still has working coin mechs, comes with new owners manual from PBR.
Williams Full House $500
Fully serviced and ready to go, some new coils, unique stepped cabinet design, mylar non-stick protectors installed around popper bases to protect playfield, playfield cleaned and waxed, elastics changed, bulbs replaced, contacts cleaned and adjusted, stepper assemblies cleaned and lubed, back glass touched up and sealed.
Nice playing machine, all contacts and steppers gone through, fresh elastics, replacement glass and lockbar, replacement chime box, sealed back glass. Some plastics funky. Only issue only plays one player or three player game. For some reason skips over player two and four. Installed a switch to enable one player game only. No time to look at it further, comes with new schematic from PBR.
You could come up here to pick up Ship Ahoy
We are getting ready to thin the herd; Ship Ahoy, Big Star, Bus Stop, Hi Flyer and Full House up for grabs I think.
The last two might be gone this week.
This will still leave me with 4 pin projects for the winter, along with a car to assemble that has been sitting since 2012.
Quoted from Colsond3:
Cleaning out some space. GTB Olympics project - actually will fire up and play a game, but needs some love. I don't want to put it in storage, so if somebody can come and get it by 5 today or sometime early tomorrow - FREE.
Half tempted to pop down there with a machine or two and pick that one up.
Trying to clear out some pins so I can focus on other projects, I'll never get done at this rate.
Gottlieb Ship Ahoy: $1000, Immaculate condition, needs nothing.
Bally Bus Stop: $500, plays great, new parts, decent bg, repainted in the past
Gottlieb Double Action woodrail: $450, partial project but works. Finishing up this week, with schematic.
Might consider a trade but really want to open space up.
Only titles I'd be interested in would be Sheba, Spin-a-Card/Hearts & Spades, Melody/Sing Along or perhaps Bally Trio.
Thanks for your consideration. Gary
Quoted from Colsond3:
Ho ho ho...this thing is pretty sweet. And the issue isn't severe. I've gotten a few PMs, but nothing definite. Very surprised. The backglass alone was $300. And I forgot…it also has a newer Rottendog PSB.
I need to go through my spare parts and post an ad on Pinside, would like to get a new backglass for Olympic Hockey and have to sell stuff or find $305 in the couch cushions.
Quoted from RonSS:
I thought it was $400 or $500 and listed well over a month.
Just checked, he did just drop the price to $500. It was $1300 for the longest time. Backglass is going on this title too, look at the player on the left.
I'd just assume buy the new backglass and be done with it, one of our favorite games.
I have a Williams Lucky Strike, New Years day Pinside sale $450
Plays good, decent backglass, partially gone though. Been in our game room for a few months but I'm out of space and need to move other titles in.
Need room in the garage, moving along the following so I can get to other long suffering projects.
Immaculate Ship Ahoy (deal pending)
Williams 1965 Lucky Strike $400 (works fine, nice backglass, fair cabinet)
Bally Bus Stop $450 (works fine, lots of new parts, cab repaint)
Williams Heatwave $1500/BO (clearcoated pf, cab repainted and stenciled)
Quoted from Grayman_EM:
We have seen this game for sale in the Pinside Market 2 times. The average asking price is $825
True yours is better and that is an average. Tea Gary?
Estimated value: Unknown
More than happy to go private if you wish, I'm not hostile to suggestions on price.
Quoted from sagejr:
Even with an Estimated Value of "unknown", I found it to be interesting that this game is ranked number #1 for EM on pinside. It must be a good game then.
Its a tough game with a lot going on and I think that keeps the kids and wife away from it. I play it time to time but not enough to justify the slot that could be used for a game like Sky Divers which I play more or Bazaar which is also waiting its turn in the workshop.
Lighting "Blow Your Top!" takes a lot of luck and skill and I think I have only managed to do it twice.
I should just put it in storage, but I get in one of my moods for housecleaning..
Darts, Bus Stop and Lucky Strike all for sale on South East CT Craigslist, once these three are sold going to be in a holding pattern for some time due to new job. None coming in and none going out, if someone wants a package deal drop me a note.
Thank you for the offer, but not a title were looking at. Might pop for a Walking Dead if one comes up local though.
I think we are going to hit the York show next month, maybe work on pre-selling a few EM's and bring them with us.
Quoted from ejacques:
In general, since we have a Flash at our league site already, I am open to trades for something working and not a game I own or the league site has. Looking to mix things up a bit.
This would also include EMs depending on what you might have. If anyone is interested throw me some ideas. My flash basically needs it's drop targets rebuilt to finish it off.
Quoted from TheCnyPinGuy:
Looking for a $200 range EM
This game just needs to work somewhat
It can be dirty - I’ll clean it and tune it up
It is for my kids local community action center youth rec program here in town
They have a few pool tables and an air hockey but I would like to donate a pinball for the local children to enjoy
Don’t care about condition as long as working mostly and Kids can play it
Message me if you may have something
I have a Big Star I can let go for $200, fully working so you don't have much to do to it.
No difference than when I was shopping for a new Challenger. When the cost of ownership between used and new is a few bucks why on earth would I buy a used car? Buy a new one with no wear and a warranty and call it a day.
Relisted Heat Wave on the market place, sale or trade and cash towards a solid state.
Were getting down to a more manageable level, I think Space Odyssey is next and were at a good number of pins.

My wife would love this.
Have a very nice Heat Wave with repaint and stencil with automotive clearcoated playfield.
Last try before giving Ebay a shot, $950 or trade for early solid state title.
Or trade and cash for something interesting, LMK.
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:
Yep, the plywood on the early Data East cabinets was an inferior grade compared to what Williams was using. It just splitters apart from handling and moving them around more. Stern was simply cost cutting way back then too.
Well for free I figured it was worth a shot. I really should not be contemplate a home brew machine but seeing some of the work people have done has inspired me a bit.
Quoted from Richthofen:
They're hard to find. Title blew up in popularity a year or two ago, and not too many of them out there. Haven't seen one for sale at a reasonable price in forever.
I might know where there is a broken one, I'll drop the owner a line. Touch base with me in a day or two.
Quoted from Colsond3:
Putting this up for sale for my daughter. She said it’s OK if I wanted to pay the sales fee out of my own money too. WTH?
Looks like we may have another shyster in this hobby in 10 years.
Machine - For Sale
Fully restored (full original status) “1977 Wico Big Top. I picked this game for my daughter when she was little because she wanted her own pin. She plays the big boy stuff now, so this has been sitting. Thought I would...”
4 hours ago
I should buy this for work.
Quoted from Whridlsoncestood:
X-Files. Again fully stripped and shipped just a few weeks ago. All titans and 100% warm white 1smd comet leds. Had magnet wear in front of file cabinet that had been filled with epoxy at some point. File cabinet is perfect. Brand new one installed when stripped down. Brand new shooter scoop chute installed(welds normally all shot entirely). Both those parts you can’t find. Ramps flame polished and no cracks at all cabinet has some scuffs and fade but solid. 2300$
My wife loved X-files; let me look up some info on the game and I'll get back to you. Make a nice surprise for her birthday.
Quoted from homersimpson007:
Selling my Black Hole. Located an hour from Pintastic in Attleboro, MA. If it didn’t weigh more than my car, I’d consider bringing it, haha. Come get it this weekend.
Always wanted one till I played it once, was a mean bitch. Colson says I have to give it another chance, just having an off day.
Anyone looking for a Hot Shots? Ready to play, $1100, I need some room. Might have one of the Time Machines up for sale, have someone interested in that though.
Hot Shots has very nice cabinet with LEDs and even the 2' translite bulb has been converted to LED. While I'd prefer to sell outright open to interesting trades, looking for early Data East mostly.
Price drop $100 to $1150 for Pinsiders, on CL in a few days. Cash or trade.
Friend of mine is looking for his first pin in CT, preferably car themed but not necessary and solid state.
Anything out there in the sub-$2000 range?
Quoted from frunch:
Colsond3 has a Bally Joust for $300. Works, but cab was painted black and some other cosmetic issues etc. Might be worth checking out if he still has it: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/post-project-pins-for-sale-here-cl-ebay-pinside-and-others/page/271#post-5152268
1973 Gottlieb King Pin.
Decent backglass and playfield (minor wear around 1 or 2 pin inserts) cab fair, LED in PF GI, score reels and some inserts, works as it should.
I'm going to bring it to work this weekend for use in our physical therapy dept, a picture of playfield is located here:
$750 or trade for another EM or towards early SS. LMK what ya have.
Quoted from poppapin:
Nice pin, I've had 2 king pins in the past and also it's AAB PinUp!!
I see the attraction in it, just don't think it will have the longevity in our collection and it is getting crowded here.
One of those pins with "one more game and I'll get that last shot this time" feeling for sure.
I'm heading to York if someone wants to meet up if still unsold by then.
Colson is coming up in a week or two, maybe he will grab it
