Tommy is still kicking around these parts
New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
Anyone near Boston have a cheap jamma cabinet for sale? I need a horizontal monitor, two player with two buttons for each....I have the board but need the cab
Quoted from videorob:
I might have to think about this one. It's not anything even close to being on my want list, but I have been toying with the idea of doing a custom theme ever since seeing another members Red Sox Pin.
This might make a good candidate for a Patriots Pin.
Are you talking about Ed's? He has a few now for the Boston teams and they all look awesome (and play perfectly too)
Quoted from BeaglePuss:
Looking to trade two of my candy cabs (Blast City and Astro City) for/towards pin(s). I'm open to all kinds of trades, so let me know what you've got and we can go from there. The cabs are located in Watertown MA. Cabs are in fantastic shape, and they're rather hard to come by in the North East.
I knew I shouldn't have opened this thread......would like a candy cab for the game room. Yet another local game I can't get right now (nothing to trade except other arcade games)
Quoted from Spyderturbo007:
Do you have a link to the sales thread or a price?
Read through the discussion as it will explain the mystery behind the game (its not a proto or sample but maybe an early production with differences).
Price wise with what has been discussed is looking to be around $4k. I'll see him tonight and chat about what was said and price, so I can get an actual number to post.
I forgot to take pictures so I'll do it tonight (I went up, played a few games, turned it off, then left for work). CSI fully working.....routed with a few nicks and scratches on the cab, but plays great. Has LEDs but no upgrades or anything like that. Located in Manch NH $3500 cash/carry or trade towards something else (I can add cash or you can add cash).....to throw out a few.... FGuy/Shrek, Avengers, Xmen, WPT, WoF, NFL, TWD, maybe LOTR, WH2O, NGG, AP, JP, Congo or Monopoly (on the fence with those). Also looking for a Track & Field arcade game and a Space Harrier
I am selling some snow...... in fact its free. You can use it for keeping stuff cold, wicked cool snowball fights in warm weather areas, and keeping the Xmas theme alive into Feb (who wants fake snow)? I've got 100's of tons of it, so bring a friend and a big ass truck
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:
You love Gilligans Island, your opinion doesn't count.
GI is a fun game...though I am tempted to dump all my non-Sterns (GI, CV, ToM, SMB... I'd keep JB and AlienP). Had a party over the weekend with 30 people....16 games running with 10 being Sterns. I had 5 games with issues of the course of the night, guess which ones (hint..not the 10 Sterns)
Quoted from PersonX99:
That's generalizing and there is nothing wrong with 'the older pins'. They are simply "older" and have more miles on them and thus, probably require a little more maintenance than the newer Sterns.
Sure they are older, and can break....however having five down at the same time, is a bit much. At some point you have to ask yourself...do you keep fixing these things or move to newer?.....I am tempted to go newer. I don't mind one here and there, but damn these things are PITA
No to Xenon.... I didn't like it when I got one last summer. Taxi no thanks
I need to stop reading this thread..... no room for another game and nothing to trade away
I might be letting go my pair of linked San Francisco Rush 2049's with the LE upgrades ...... not sure if I want to try a different sit down driving game for the kids. Would like to get the Mario Kart sit downs for them
have this on BPA
GI $1700 : regular bulbs, island works great, has bamboo on the legs, cab has red fading
Rush 2049 SE : $1500 pair of linked Rush 2049's with the chip and hard drive upgrade. Working but one side needs a battery replaced. Monitors working but could be degaussed to be better. Comes with a spare set of boards that I have not tested (were supposed to be working when I picked them up 8+ years ago). Its the entire metal cage of boards
take it all for $6900
cash and carry (down steps only luckily)
Also open to trades like ST Prem, Xmen Pro, Medusa, etc
You are on my radar.... not crazy about a drive to CT though
I am still looking to buy a game in the NH area ...... dragging my feet because there's really no title that is saying to me "I must get" (though it may be time to get a Woz finally). Only a handful of want games that I can't decide on which one.
Quoted from dannunz:
I have to say I am very disappointed in the local collector community
Damn, c'mon now with this guilt trip shit. Maybe some of us don't have an easy way to get games in and out...maybe some of us don't want to bring a big vehicle down to haul a game..... maybe some of us don't want 1000 people banging on our personal machines all day...maybe some of us can't make it this year (like me)
It's great that a New England event is happening, and the work to organize it is not going unnoticed...however when you start pulling this crap, you are going to lose the momentum. My 2 cents
Usually I don't post anything like that (those that have met me know I am usually chipper), but it rubbed me the wrong way. We all want it to be a success however its not easy for lots of us to just throw a couple pins in the back of a large vehicle and haul them down.
I still have the pair of Rush 2049 SE's ...... they are big, they are bulky, they are now $800 for the pair The catch is you have to move them out without my help and it will take 3 people to do it (4 might be better). I have an extra boardset for $150 as well including the metal box they sit in. The landscapers are not coming for a couple weeks, so there's no steps yet to the front porch...easy to roll them down the slope. BTW, easy if you can move 500lbs
The entire move will be downstairs and down a slope...no uphill or up the steps. Could do a trade, however there's not much in the way of pins that are 800 anymore (remember the days when lower end DMD games were 800 ....the good ol' days) and I'm sure no one has a Space Harrier or Track & Field arcade game for trade.
My Rush 2049 SE's sold ...... now I need to replace them. Do I go with a pair of motorcycle racing games, a pair of Mario Kart racing games (or something cheaper), some classic arcade games (Track & Field) or another pin (SP, NFL, Mono)? Decisions decisions. I don't have a ton in the funds right now (blew most of it on an Xmen Wolverine) but enough for something fairly good
Quoted from the96stang:
Only reason Im selling is because the gun handle sticks out too far into the isle of my game room
Yeah, that is a good reason.....when I had one, I bumped into it so hard, it cracked the cabinet. Had a massive bruise for weeks and it hurt. I am no longer a fan of games with gun handles ...and no longer a member of the NPRA (National Pinball Rifle Association) (sold JP, STTNG, GnR, DH and IJ)
FS/FT: The "I'm pissed off at it" Monopoly . Everything seems to be working fine...except the upper right flipper is weak. I have worked on it for a long time (replaced everything)...still doesn't flip well. Will sell for $2100 as is pickup only (2150 if I have to help move it) or open to trades. Don't really have time or desire to continue working on it.
Quoted from Blackbeard:
$50 to help someone move it? Really?
Yes, there have been times where one person comes to pick it up and can't really do any lifting....and I am not getting any younger. I actually would say 2150 for the cost, then 50 off if you bring someone.... basically the same
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:
He should have paid me to help him move it on our last deal, from his last setup in the basement. Tight, back breaking, awful...fuck it sucked. I think I did that a few deals with Chris.
Those steps sucked so bad...then that 90 degree turn to the right because of the porch steps
all the deals seem to be in CT
I need something local in the NH area .... hosting a big theatre cast party this Sunday and was hoping to get one more game. Can't drive far as its tech week, so there's no time to travel.
I was thinking about going to the Mass Pinball show though in July (assuming nothing comes up before that)
Quoted from balboarules:
Ok, down to just Addams family, price drop to 5500, cash upon pick up, getting some higher resolution pictures later today.
Just saw the Addams while picking up that Congo to the right of it
Addams looks really nice ..... would have grabbed it if I didn't have GB on order
Steve does a great job making the games play perfectly.
When I go to the grocery store, the vendors give me a small sample to try.....they don't cook me a five course meal for my whole family
Got a working Disco Fever with banana flippers for sale or trade (will add to the classified section this weekend with pics). Just did a flipper rebuild.
here's Disco Fever in the marketplace ..... I want another game and I am at max capacity for keeping the game room comfortable with big groups (and poker nights). $525 takes it (or a trade)
still have the working Disco Fever with banana flipper action (in the marketplace)..... PM me an offer
Disco Fever is still available ... emailed a couple people about it but never heard back. $500/BO It's in the marketplace
still have a working Disco Fever for $375 ... banana flippers and a nice cab and backglass
Disco Fever has been sold .... I need to find a game to replace it now (I thought I had one and it fell through)
Selling my candlepin bowling alley.... all wood, alley, pindicator, pins, ball return, etc. It's 33ft long right now, can go up to 37ft. Pins are on strings with a pully system pin setter...auto ball return. Taking offers. Located in Manchester NH. Easy to assemble.
Quoted from tp:
Delivered to an area that has horrific traffic.
Say whaaaaaat? .... Boston traffic is cake, if you grow up driving in it. It's all those internal-foreigners from Rhode Island, NJ, Maine, Flo-rida, etc. that screw up our driving mojo (especially Maine ... they drive the speed limit in the far left lane).
and to keep my post "on topic" ... WTB Gottlieb Strikes & Spares or South Park in the Boston area
Quoted from JIM_Z:
You can come play mine for a few hours, you will be done with it then It still gets play from the kids so not ready to sell yet.
I had one years ago .... sold it to make room for new Sterns and I have missed it ever since
Now that I tore down the bowling alley, I want a bowling game in its place
Quoted from PinballJon:
Selling my HUO GoT Pro, quite a few mods including shaker motor and brass shooter rod. Game does have some ghosting. Pics coming later on today/night.
Asking $4600, feel free to PM me with any questions.
Market place ad is here, and a list of all mods can be found in the ad:
Awwww..... too far for me or it would be mine
I have a $5300 budget for a DMD era game .... anything good in New England (ideally near NH since I don't have a lot of time for driving adventures anymore)
PM with details ... I can come by this weekend for it (or if you deliver, even better). Aerosmith had me interested, but I don't want to wait like I did for GB with Stern (even though I LOVE my GB)
ugh...another GoT semi close, but not close enough. I might as well buy new and have it delivered. Any vendors reading this, contact me
Already posted to the BPA, but I'm in the hunt for a replacement to RBION.... price range max idealy around a NIB Stern Pro. To throw titles out there I am interested in (but not limited to)... South park (of course), Metallica, Whitewater, Addams, maybe even Aerosmith....just to name a few that come to mind. Willing to drive around the Boston area in New England (no time for road trips right now)
WPT was sold and picked up....I officially do not have any more games to sell. It was fun
However I sold three and only have two coming in.....need one more to fill that void
Anyone have a working game that's in the low $1k range or less? I know very few DMD games will be in that range but what is out there for solid state? Throwing some titles that may/may not fit that range:.... High Speed, Grand Lizard, Fathom, Seawitch, Gladiator, Party Zone, Gottlieb Strikes N Spares, Stern Stars, Harlem Globetrotters, Hollywood Heat, Fire!, TMNT, Street Fighter 2 (a CrazyLevi favorite), D&D, etc etc
still in the hunt for a South park.
I have one slot open and I'm still not sure what to put there..... usually decisions are fairly easy but this is hard to figure out
Part of me says South Park, part of me Medusa, part Gottlieb Strikes & Spares, part Al's Garage Band or Stern Stones for a 5th in the rock row.... then there's part of me saying, wait to get a GnR or a nice Addams (even though Aerosmith and Met tapped my pin funds way down)
First world problems
HUO Kiss pro is backing in action. New board installed...working like new. Has backglass mod that lights up the letters, extra playfield lights (Gene head, scoop), titan orange rubbers, Kiss light splitter for the left target inserts, nice cab, nice everything.
4300 pickup in Manchester
Will trade towards a Stern Star Wars pro
Want it gone to get a SW
