Quoted from Richthofen:

PersonX99, how much for the Avatar if all mods removed

Same price. It would take a fair amount of work to remove all of those mods. Besides, does anyone really like the look of a stock Avatar? They look dirty and old with the yellow incandescent lights (imho).

Still have an Avatar for sale (worth the look as it is not your average Avatar)



No, I am not selling to fund TWD. I'm waiting until after the code is updated before considering it.

#723 4 years ago
Quoted from Max_Badazz:

You're such a Negative Nancy.....the code will be fine out of the box and they have the track record to prove it

I actually prefer this method of release. Let the initial buyers be the beta testers and the final result is a pin with few bugs and refined game play rules.
I flat-out refuse to be a Screeching Sally when it comes to the release of code updates. It's fun to update the code and check out all the new features.
I have to admit I do get a chuckle out of reading some of the whiny threads. It gets old pretty quick though. I just keep searching for 'Hitler Spoof' videos. They are hilarious.

If I had a TZ, I would do that trade in a heartbeat (I'm part of a rare group of pin collectors that doesn't like TZ)

I thought it was PinLaw that a collector must like TZ & MM?

Quoted from Max_Badazz:

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)

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.
Dumping the non-Sterns is fine though, I will be right over to pick up CV & ToM. I might have to stash RCT in my purse as well.

#1266 4 years ago
Quoted from Max_Badazz:

The kids will be at your door late at night if you take RCT... staring into the window while you sleep.

Your kids are good, they can come over and play. Candy & Mt. Dew all around, and then i sent them home.

#1267 4 years ago
Quoted from Max_Badazz:

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
Dave, you want CV and ToM, going to cost you some Sterns of yours (ST, XM, maybe LOTR)

Didn't you just get rid of your LOTR a year or so ago? How about a Taxi or Xenon? They are "sorta stern" lol

Quoted from Pinphila:

Routed at those prices....keep dreaming.

This is what drives me crazy about the pinball hobby. People list machines at super high prices. If you list a machine at a reasonable price, (some) people offer significantly less thinking your price is super high. I dread buying/selling. Sometimes it's just easier to get NIB.

#1889 4 years ago
Quoted from Max_Badazz:

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.

Time for a WoZ. You have been talking about getting one for a looooong time. Just do it.

#1902 4 years ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

Honestly I don't think I have ever looked at a shooter lane while playing. . Ball drains and new ball appears

If you have a really nice pf and a shooter lane that looks like crap, it stands out. It's also more difficult to clean than most people realize. Dirt and other stuff gets into the wood grain and doesn't come out completely unless you sand it.

I've seen people freak out over wear around the pops that you only see if you are looking from the opposite side of the pin. Who does that while they are playing? I don't think it is possible, but the pf wear, unseen while playing, caused great distress.

Quoted from dannunz:

Ok guys we are at 122 games in free play. After reviewing the list of people bringing games I have to say I am very disappointed in the local collector community. Only 42 collectors are making up that 122 games. You guys have wanted a show in New England for how many years and now you have one. I know there are at least 300 collectors in the New England area. A show can not be great with out the support of local collectors. So this is it please rent a u-haul, jam one into your SUV or car, get together with a friend. We need more games and this is it time has run out! Thank you to those 42 people you know who you are. Thanks Gabe

I was under the impression people brought their games for the free play area in order to sell them? I'm not sure how many people would just truck their games from their homes for the sole purpose of putting them in the free play area only to bring them home afterward. I might have this completely wrong since I have only gone to one show (Allentown, 2015). Most of the pins there were up for sale. Quite a few of them left the show on the very first day.

#2056 4 years ago
Quoted from Pinfidel:

Believe me Max...we understand and get it my friend. No worries. We know your a great pin brother. You and your wife are always gracious about opening up your home and hosting parties. We know you're rep and passion brother. So no worries at all.
Anyone that can bring games or can help others get them to the show is greatly appreciated. Thank to you all! = )

Max is a "disturber of the of peace". Invites me over to play pinball....tells me where to buy a machine for my own home.....Now I am a full blown addict with a game room full of pins and the constant hunger for more. hehehehehee

Quoted from BeaglePuss:

I'm picking up a TZ tonight, so my RBION is now for sale instead of trade. The ad is in the market place. It's in insanely good shape, and I'd let it go for $3,500 or so.
I also have a light project WCS and a players PZ I might be looking to part with. Shoot me a pm for details.
All machines can be seen and played in Watertown Ma.

Wow, you held on to the PZ longer than I would have thought. Once you can hit the Big Bang & "B Merry" routinely, it starts to get old. It has no chance next to a TZ.

Quoted from Max_Badazz:

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)

This was never an issue with Demo Man. It just looked weird.

Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

$3500 AND Transport? LOL!
C'mon people, this is seriously a stupid good deal. Game is fresh from the box and Mustang is an underrated fun game (pretty hard too)
If I didn't just buy a Tron, I would have bought this and brought you a pizza when I picked it up.

Wow, I am SO glad I did not see this. Totally out of space & kinda prefer a premium version, but I would have made room for this deal...I would have brought pizza AND beer.
Hope it is going to a good home...

#3688 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

I hear ya, but I would never tell a prospective buyer I'm gonna charge him if I have to move it. Just seems ridiculous. It's not the buyers fault the sellers basement is a pain to move from.
Should just increase the price to the 2150 and state he can't help move it. Just leaves a sour taste in my mouth knowing I have to pay the seller to help move it.

I move a pin I am trying to tell to a spot where the prospective buyer can inspect it easily and I try to adjust the lighting for maximum attraction. Having it under bright fluorescent lights at first look is not ideal...Tell me I am wrong, but "presentation matters". Of course, having it in spot that is easy to load into their vehicle makes buying it then and there a whole lot easier.

PIA to shop. Those wireforms are a crazy jigsaw puzzle. However, once shopped and those ramps are nicely waxed, the ball flies smooth and quiet all over the pf.

I'm selling my TOTAN, I've listed it in the marketplace. Open to offers. I'm looking to get a Medieval Madness, either original or remake so I'm open to a possible trade deal. I will be adding more pictures in better light tomorrow.

I had this game for a few months (temporary trade). One of the best examples of a TOTAN I have even seen. The boards in the back box look brand new, and the playfield is mint....How often do you see a minty TOTAN pf?? If you are considering a TOTAN, this is the one to get.

Quoted from MinusWorlds:

Going to list my TRON pro in a couple days on the market but wanted to offer it here first. Original run with 3D translite. Game is HUO but has seen a shit ton of plays (rightfully so). Overall condition is well above player but not quite collector. At least not to me, but it is extremely nice. Very slight flipper wear on right side. List of mods is as follows:
ELI Ramps
Hallmark Light Cycles
Color DMD
Arcade 3.1
Mirror Blades with decals
Flynn's sign
Lit scoop
Scoop cliffy
Instruction cards
Prob more, have to look. Game has less than 10 plays since Aardvark completely tore it down and shopped it. All new rubbers etc. Plays 100% as it should. Pricing will be as follows:
As is - $6300
With brand new chrome armor with lollipop rails, hinges, legs, bolts and lockdown (uninstalled) - $6700
The chrome armor will hide the flipper wear and really make the game shine (ha get it!). I think with the armor most would put it in the collector quality range. Very easy pick up. Located in Manchester, NH.
Not listed in trades unless you do spray foam insulation. Yes I'm serious.
Also have an issue free GB Premium going up for sale too. Absolutely MINT.

LOL...It's probably already sold. Seems like lots of people are after a Tron.

Quoted from New_England:

Sorry, didn’t know that you had two switches that needed to be replaced when we first spoke. Also wasn’t going to pay $2,900 for a non working SP. SP is not a $3,000 game.

This msg should probably be kept to PM. Not sure how this is useful for everyone else in the thread.. Negotiating a price is usually done privately. The numbers you are throwing out are incorrect, and the description of the game in the ad notes two switches out. I have played this game several times, and the description is accurate.

Quoted from Gotpins:

The buy and flip the following day is what stinks about this hobby. It's all become about money. I get that you can buy and sell things for whatever you want and that its a free country and all that crap but it's just a duchy move if you ask me and shows the type of guy you are dealing with. It's things like this that push true hobbiest away from this site and dealing with other pinsiders. At least it does for me. If you do not like this behavior, then people need to start using the feedback section to warn others of what to expect when dealing with people. Feedback doesn't have to be negative but just be honest. Like "This guy buys and flips, don't give him the good guy discount as he probably won't keep the game more than a day". When I'm selling something if I had 2 emails about a game I have for sale, and one guy is new and owns 1 EM and the other clearly buys and flips based on his past forum activity then I'd give the good deal to the new guy with the EM. Spread the love and joy to those who are humble and starting out. Treat others as you want to be treated. That's on pinside or anywhere in life.

People, don't lost faith in the community....There are plenty of decent buyers/sellers out there. Ask around and find out who, and who not to deal with. I have...and some of the stories I have heard, even if half true, are disturbing. I agree with gotpins , honest feedback works. However, do not believe a word that max_badazz says about me....he's simply envious of my dancing skills. :p

#11851 10 months ago
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Just so you know, an X-MEN LE that I bought that was yours a short time earlier, was so badly hacked with mods and led light strips that you put in, that it caused the game to block boot up and malfunction. I had to remove all your hacks, and I did so while remaining faithful in the community that the previous owner clearly didn’t know what he was doing, let alone know what he was talking about.

Haven't had any complaints from any others that I have sold.....and there have been quite a few. I think you might have some anger issues you need to work out. You pretty much hate on every post of mine on various forums, and I don't even know you. Not sure what I did to earn this hate, but you need to let it go. It's unhealthy.

#11893 10 months ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

It is a problem. The market is clogged and it shouldn’t be. It impacts NIB sales on down.
You’ve always had legit prices. You don’t deal as much in the HUO market, but even when you move a real nice game the price gets the game out the door. Wish more sellers were like you.

Oh yeah, I bought a couple games from eabundy. Paid a fair price, got a good pin. Plus reputation....that has value.

Most of my pins are sold to people I know and who have played them before (benefit of hosting league and tournaments). They know what they are getting.
Usually an easy, quick sale.....that has value. I don't see the need to price gouge. I would much rather have a decent reputation over a few extra bucks. It does come back to you, in good, and bad ways depending on how you roll.

Quoted from dannunz:

I can set that up for Pintastic 2019 or put them in sumo suits and have them go at it!

I'm pretty sure @max_badazz is going to want to wear his official Vanilla Ice track suit. I've seen it in his closet, hanging right next to his satin parachute pants. I'll keep it simple and break out the JNCO jeans. :p

#11927 10 months ago
Quoted from mainelycoasters:

I would say as a relatively new guy only had pins for 5 years or so and have bought from most of the people in this thread being talked about, I have had no issue with any of them. I have games at home and on route. I do not feel that the so called flippers, who when I looked up market price and what they sold it to me for, actually gave me a rather fair price below market selling. most of them will work with you on price. I tend to price High when I sell Knowing someone is going to offer less. I think just about everyone does who buys and sells often. There are a lot of good people buying and selling pins, fixing them, modding them. I am thankful for the many people I have met in this hobby....and that I have really never felt like I got screwed by anyone here!

Between Jim & yourself, half of my newer games now reside in Maine. :p

Similar situation. 14 almost 15 year old twins. My daughter will play every now and then with me, but not too much. When she does play, she is pretty decent and has great ball control. My son hardly has any interest in it. Damn, and I could show/teach him so much...…….

I would have loved to had pins as a teen. My family did not play any games of any kind.
