Hello all, I'm brand-new here and I'm looking to get into the lovely hobby of pinball collecting

I don't really no where to start, but I'm really into fixing things, so I suppose I'd love to get a rough, fixer-upper of a table that doesn't have to look good, just one that I can play hard
If there's anyone out there near the Capitol Region (Albany) with some really rough tables, that may or may not work, let me know! I'd like to stay under the $400 range if possible. I can travel some distance, say 50-100 miles.
Thank you all in advance!

Looking for a Namco Ms. Pac Man/Galaga 20 year reunion (non-cabaret) if anyone has one for sale

Not to step on toes, but I'm looking for one as well! Any arcade machine that plays Galaga, (non-multicade). A friend of mine is going though a really tragic family situation and he's an avid Galaga player, insanely good. Figured nothing cheers ya up like arcade therapy.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

I'm starting to clear out a stash of parts that I probably won't be using in any winter projects.
Check my marketplace listings--a handful of plastic ramps, Alvin G MPUs, refurbished classic bally & stern lamp boards, Sonic shooter housing, Gottlieb Genesis robot figure, R911 wireform, R911 ball lift assembly.
https://pinside.com/pinball/community/pinsiders/forceflow/market
I'll be listing a handful of more items as well, as I sort through a few more boxes throughout the week.
If you pick-up locally, I'll knock off the shipping costs.

Let me know if you need a hand at all, Force! I've been doing a fair share of cleaning out but it always seems like more fun when it's someone else's stuff. When it's your own, you keep remembering how much of it there is and how you want to hold onto a lot but it takes up too much space... the never-ending struggle!

Also if anyone is selling an Orbitor 1 or other novelty pins/projects let me know. Still looking to see what's out there. Preferably late 80's games.

#8884 3 years ago
Quoted from Ns2973:

Pretty sure there is an orbiter 1 in buffalo on the market.

I have seen that ad, the fellow reached out to me.
However I'm hoping there maybe be another out there a little closer... wasn't looking too forward to driving out to buffalo

#8886 3 years ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

This is the first time I've seen one pop up in the northeast. It's a rare game, so if you really want one, you may have to drive pretty far to find one.

Hm... okay, if I buy it will you come and play it?
My only concern is that in a collection of only a few games, it may get old very fast... but the cool factor is very high

This is a tough one! I've kept an eye out and to my knowledge they don't move often. Very hard to come by, and I believe for some reason they were much more popular in Europe as opposed to the states. Best of luck to you!

#9260 3 years ago

Just curious, I've seen them go for a lot...
What would a low-end players PoTC cost me around here? I really loved that game when I used to play it at the arcades... But might be a little rich for my blood at the moment...

#9760 2 years ago
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.

It only broke into the top 10, immediately to top 1 (briefly #2) in December when it finally got enough ratings to qualify for the Pinside Top 100.

The issue with the EM ratings is that instead of minimum 15 ratings that all SS games and newer require, you only need 10. This reduces the possible scope that is used to calculate average, meaning that fewer people can make a higher impact on a game’s ranking.

It will come down the more reviews it reviews. IPDB usually has pretty reliable ratings for games that are not yet popularly rated on Pinside.

Still IN SEARCH OF:
Orbitor 1 spare parts and playfield.

Quoted from New_England:

I would reach out to Fast Eddie. He drove my South Park machine from New Jersey to Vermont for $350. Wrapped it better than a NIB and helped set it up for me. Couldn't recommend him more.

Is he on pinside?

#11703 2 years ago
Quoted from hawkeyexx:

I had no luck selling Simpson's or Hook. Next to be listed in the Marketplace are Baywatch and Comet.
I'm not looking for any trades. I have spent thousands on the game room and the family spends most of their time looking at their iPhones.

In my gameroom the charging station is on the other side of the room! Can't look at your phone if it's not within arms reach. *insert meme photo here*

For real there are tons of ways to get us of the younger generation involved in classic pinball. Gotta mix it with the stuff they like, classic arcade games. I've found Galaga has been pretty popular in particular.

My girlfriend actually doesn't like new pinballs. The depth and packed playfields overwhelm her and she gets bothered by the lights. Turns out she likes the classic EMs from the 70's and she's a ridiculously good player at them, better than me. I like some of them, but I wouldn't have any in my gameroom if not for her enthusiasm.

I bring all my friends over and they love the novelty games a lot as well. Slowly I'm easing them into pinhead society!

#11760 2 years ago

Thinking about picking up a player game, doesn’t need to look pretty, can have some wear.
Interested in titles like BBH, or Avatar, are those available around this area and what do they usually run? Like in the 5/10 to 7/10 range if you want to rate it

Am trying to give back to the communit but only have so much to spend on this
But I do thank you for the offer

Will you be doing the work on it? A lot of those games don’t last long because nobody does the upkeep

#11838 2 years ago
Quoted from BeaglePuss:

DE Time Machine (nice) project $1,000 firm.
I have a project TM that will make for a killer player with a little work. Great backglass, good playfield, LEDs throughout. Played great, and now.... Well, doesn't. Game powers up, but no ball is ejected into the shooter lane. Fourth display is out. I haven't troubleshot the issue at all.
Game is located in Watertown MA, and load-up is a breeze. Back right up to the garage, and we can slide it right into the bed of your truck. Cash only as I'm putting the money into updating my boxing ring. I can email/text pics for those that are seriously interested. Any less than a grand, and I'll hold onto it and finish it up in the spring.

Quoted from bluespin:

frunch if you're interested in buying it, shacklersrevenge put it up for sale in the marketplace yesterday.

uhh??!

#11857 2 years ago
Quoted from herbertbsharp:

Anyone want to buy my GB pro?

Kinda tempted, not gonna lie. As always I'm in the "wish I could swing it right now". Is this your personal or was this the one at the bar downtown?

#11864 2 years ago

This reminds me, probably the wrong thread to ask this in but is there anyone in the Northeast who is great at Data East power supply repairs? This one doesn't seem to be giving enough voltage to the game to power everything at once. Looking to get it repaired instead of replacing it with a new one.

#11869 2 years ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

There are several people. Marco and PBL also sell a replacement kit for the main connector and pins.
To be honest, I would get a Rottendog and get the old one repaired and keep it on hand. DE PSB’s generally run hot and can have issues.

This one did exactly that. Connectors to the GI got so hot it caught on fire and desoldered the connections right off the board. Game still boots and plays somehow. But when you flip the flippers even with the brand new board they are weak and barely move, and the DMD almost goes out completely. Maybe I do have to get a new one..

ISO an Orbitor 1 cab and backbox! I bought the glass and I have a line on a playfield (though any other leads are appreciated) any and all parts gladly accepted as well as a complete boardset.

Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

ISO an Orbitor 1 cab and backbox! I bought the glass and I have a line on a playfield (though any other leads are appreciated) any and all parts gladly accepted as well as a complete boardset.

You guys are incredible! I just picked up my Orbitor 1 cab, big thanks to zacaj for the lead and drgnlair

PLUS my Orbitor 1 backglass + Plexi bubble came in the mail from across the country in only 3 days!! AND IT WAS IN ONE PIECE! I am truly in awe it wasn’t smashed to bits. It has some extra cracks that I didn’t want but to be honest I’m not gonna throw a fit because I highly doubt I’ll ever see a spare Orbitor 1 3D backglass hanging around.

My next big challenge is getting all the mechs to populate a stripped playfield, or finding a populated playfield.
So if anyone knows someone with spare spinning bumpers or the 7-bank drop targets that will be my biggest challenges! I would prefer a populated playfield, because the wire harness is gonna be awful to recreate.

Also I will most likely just build a head, but if someone has a spare Stern Electronics Head, I was told that ANY head will work for this game. So if someone has one, I’m interested!

Thanks again, Pinside has been incredible for me! I mean I literally posted, got leads and had a cab in TWO days!!! That’s insane!

Is there anyone in the New England area who redoes playfields? I’m looking to have some my playfields tocuhed up and clearcoated. Also need inserts levels and such. Some of them I’m doing myself but a few are keepers that I’d like to get a really nice, professional-grade job done.

So this is kind of an odd thing to post here, but I have a large, 2 player sit-down Wing Wars arcade game. One side plays just fine, the other needs a cap kit, not totally sure but it seems to turn in and play blind. Haven’t messed with it much, sorts inherited this beast.

Ground floor, located in my arcade currently. You can back right up to the loading bay. Just need a lot of help to move this gigantic monster.

You couldn't be more wrong. It takes minimal effort. The sad truth is that very few operators are either capable enough, or are willing to put the time in.

Depends on the game and the location. Some games in absolute tanks that will work through anything (90’s Williams) others will break if you look at them wrong, and then some are like fine cars, and require constant supervision or a small issue will quickly and exponentially grow

I know this is short notice but I’m heading down to Philly to pick up a machine tomorrow morning if anyone has an immediate need to transport a game around Albany anywhere along the route!

Quoted from unlockpinball:

Craig's List Post: "pinball machine needs a new home ,I’m happy to give it out for free ...relocating very soon" Pictures of Iron Maiden, Addams Family, Elvira and the Party Monsters. People are so nice when you help them remove unwanted old pinball machines due to moving. This guy will probably pay you to remove them. Make sure and ask. You never know!!!

10000% a scam. Nobody gives away an Addams Family or a brand new Iron Maiden. You’re dreaming. Maybe in the 90’s but not anymore.

Quoted from herbertbsharp:

I created a facebook group (Northeast US Pinball For Sale group) that is similar to this thread:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/NortheastUSPinballMachinesForSale
I found it time consuming to see many for sale posts on facebook that were too far away to pick up. I also see lots of interested buyers from far away that don't want to pay to ship. If the group gets traction I think it could be useful and solve those issues.

Totally a scam, nobody uses Facebook anymore.
And some guy who looks like Charles Bronson? Too good to be true.

Quoted from HydrogenHuman:

I'm looking to get my 2nd pin after my Surf n' Safari, mainly because my Surf n' Safari is inevitably going to need some TLC and will have to be taken apart. And I wouldn't be able to handle not being able to play a machine while it's out of commission being worked on!
As far as condition of the machine I'm looking for: Some cosmetic wear on the cabinet/backlight/translite is fine, but I want it to be playable with no issues and preferably I'd like to have a good condition playfield with minimal wear.
I'm interested in the following Solid State Machines (Non-DMD) with a budget around $2000 with some flexibility, depending.
-F-14 Tomcat
-Pinbot
-High Speed
-Space Station
-Police Force
-Black Knight 2000
-TX-Sector

The first 3 are plausible.
But for PF, BK2K and TX Sector, I doubt you’ll snag one. They go so fast! TX is probably the best Gottlieb next to Robo War.

I’ve got a Time Warp cashbox sitting around. Time Warp is written right on it.
Normally I’d use them, but I figure I’d offer it to anyone locally who may have a time warp and needs a coin box for it.

What do coin boxes usually go for?

Quoted from sulli10:

Ugh! The best deal on pinside right now. This is a great under appreciated game. First off its beautiful, the 3d back glass is top tier, the call outs are excellent, the game play is fast, stacking the multi balls / sounds excellent, rules similar to Iron Man and Tron . Yes, OMG, it only has one ramp. Who knows, with the new Avatar movies being filmed, Stern may give it a little code love with a VE . .
Super price (killing me as an owner ). Also a great guy to know if you're starting out in the hobby. He moves a lot of machines at very fair prices.

Once you get over the crushing disappointment that it’s not actually Charles Bronson selling you these games...

Herb is an outstanding guy and (against my advice) he’s selling an absolutely KICKASS Avatar!
Great game, great seller, fantastic price!

Cheap EMs (per usual)

I just got that huge collection of pingame

Happy with them? I may be picking something up in the future

The operator I work with workers closely with Mike, he’s a standup guy, and does so much business it would blow your mind.
He’s also pretty cool and friendly from what I’ve heard.
Maybe some day when I can afford games in that price range!

#17127 4 months ago
Quoted from Mattyk:

Over $5k for a NASCAR. Guys is selling used pinball machines at NIB prices

No, he’s RETAILING pinball machines.
It was mentioned by someone earlier, but: collector to collector with zero warranty to people who plan/understand that they have to perform maintenance is FAR DIFFERENT from the average homeowner who doesn’t know and doesn’t want to work on their own games.
5k is high for the average NASCAR, but I don’t know what warranties they come with and what condition they’re in.

Quoted from silen7ce:

Anyone interested in trading for an allied leisure getaway project? Don't think im going to have time for it anytime soon with the lack of good documentation... and I can't bring myself to part it out. Very cool looking early ss game... very nice playfield. Missing a couple plastics, cabinet is decent, boards look okay but power section definitely needs some work.. some visibly broken solder joints so I didn't bother trying to power up. Backbox is falling apart will need some woodwork.. no backglass... no legs...has all the displays. Taking up room in my living room that wife would like back!

Cool rare game, what’s the asking price?

Also just putting out feelers but what’s Hardbody or Bounty Hunter going for around the area? Probably won’t be buying for another month or two but definitely interested in pricing for those two.

JUST picked up a project Williams 4 Aces. Seems to be a very uncommon and unique machine.
Just a mile from my house my car broke down, sheered 3 of my lug nuts! Can’t believe the tire stayed on.
So now 4 Aces is up for grabs.
Cabinet back panel is swollen, other 3 sides seem solid. Head is solid. No backglass unfortunately. Wiring appears to be complete and undisturbed.
$150 obo

Thinking about making a little space. Easy load up straight out the garage.
Space Riders - $850
Nice playfield, mint backglass, cabinet nice. Plays fine, displays are good, new rubber rings, GI / Backglass LED. Only issue is the sound is stuck on low volume.

Was this the one for sale up there in CL? It looks to be in great condition and was in a private home for a long time. Congrats if that was this game. Looks very fun!

#17955 66 days ago
Quoted from epeabs:

I've given quite a lot of thought about this lineup change, but I think the time has come and I don't have tons of room. Going to pass my much loved Last Action Hero down the road to make room for Rob Zombie. This game is in great shape, no cabinet fade, and no flipper button wear. The playfield is crisp and clean, no ticket wear, full Cliffy's. Full Titans, LED's, EnerGI Maestro board to control the LED's, new crane drop target stickers, 4 extra drop targets, alternate translite, LED's in backbox. Flippers have been rebuilt, flipper board has had the "mod" completed to prevent "flipper dropout". The crane works great, and the tar pit blue ramp is not cracked or broken. Running newest version 1.13 code. Has a brand new ColorDMD LCD screen running the latest color enhancement update. This is probably one of the most underrated pins as far as fun factor and "toys" (magnet, crane, the Ripper, three scoops, Smart Button, 6 ball multiball, two captive balls). $3400. Shoot me a PM if interested. I'll get a full ad up when I get a chance. Thanks, Erik

What’s the mod? I’ve never heard of flipper dropout on DE’s

Quoted from sagejr:

I completely agree with this post. When TH was the first to dive into hazy beers they were great. Now they need to pump it out to keep up with the masses and most of their beers are indistinguishable. CT has so many incredible small microbrews that are on par or better than TH IMHO with no long lines and many you can buy in your local store. Kent Falls, Alvarium, Firefly, Abomination, Fat Orange Cat, Counterweight, Back East, Legitimus, Brass Works, Little Red Barn, NEBCO, Hooker, Bad Sons, Fox Farm, Beer'd...too many to list. So don't rule out CT for great beer, there are many!

I think you guys need a new thread “best microbreweries in the northeast”
