Need JP plastic above VUK on the right side.
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)!
Thank you Pinnut for the Goldeneye. Awesome seller. Made a video of the machine in action prior to pick up. Plays beautifully and any issues are purely cosmetic. Magnet was disabled but works perfectly after I changed the adjustments. Awesome price too!
Quoted from Yoko2una:
Also, I had a few responses, but nothing really met everything the family wanted, so I'll give it another go...
WTB: Nice EM Machine. Preferences = 1970s era, fully working, clean, excellent PF & BG, solid cabinet, theme appropriate for kids (not too heavy on T&A everywhere), and multiplayer. Bonus points if it's a Target Alpha, Grand Prix, Capt. Fantastic (this is as about as T&A-heavy as we'd go), or anything Space/Bowling/Cowboy/Americana Theme.
PS - Looking for machines within 2, maybe 3 hours of Haverhill, MA, extra bonus points if you're local and can deliver (I can help with lifting and have appliance dolly).
Captain fantastic is very t&a, relatively speaking.
New lower price...
No offense but I saw your ad at $5k and then $4500. The only way to help your sale at $4k would be to take an hd picture of the outholes without Cliffy protectors. GLWS.
I have owne jp twice over the last 15 years and just sold a very nice one a week ago for $2600. I am not criticizing only trying to get your price for you. If the outholes look good it would go a long way to get your price as it is the achilles heel of jp. Hell, I might even buy it since i love that game so much. Only trying to help not criticize.
WTT for Star Trek Pro or cash.
Quoted from davebart5:
Question for the group... I also asked this in the PA/NJ/DE/MD thread, but does anyone know who are some of the trusted and experienced go-to guys for minor touch up and full PF clear coating services?
I want to clear my Mystery Castle PF, which has one or two hard to spot dings, but otherwise in beautiful condition, and get it cleared/preserved for good.
I was referred to go through the well known channels like Bryan Kelly, Kruzman, etc. but they have their hands full already and/or are scaling back operations.
It would be great to find someone in the NE region, and any recommendations much appreciated.
Yes, it would be good to find a place where in NE where you can just drop off and pick up your playfield in person.
Too bad, I played that Aerosmith and it's legit awesome.
Quoted from mrgregb123:
Learned not to drive more than an hour and a half for a pinball machine. Too many times I've showed up and the game isn't as described. So 90 minutes (which is really 3 hours both ways) is just about the most risk I'm willing to take.
Hobbit Smaug Gold Special Edition in CT. Day 1 Cliffys, Modfather Shooting Rod, glowing plastic protectors, Lermod backboard light. Perfect. $6500.
Price drop on Ropley's Believe it or Not
Quoted from ForceFlow:
Heads up--we received a message today from a member who went to buy two NIB pins in Albany, NY and the buyer said he was robbed at gunpoint by the seller. That's all the info we have at the moment.
Obviously, this was a shock to hear. As things get worse, people may be getting more desperate and/or bold. Be careful out there.
Quoted from DorkInAbox:
I've got a pretty nice DM that I'd take $3k firm on - a couple of tasteful mods including Pinshaker brand shaker motor, LED's and Art blades, new side art, newly painted coin door, fresh total topside teardown, spare repro plastic for the one on the right side of the cars that's always broken, plastic protector set installed...
But I'm like 4hrs from Hartford, in PA. I plan on bringing it to Allentown Pinfest, if that happens this year or York Whiterose Game room Show if that is the next local show for me.
During normal days I'd be interested but I really don't want to cross multiple state lines right now...thank you though.
Quoted from herbertbsharp:
I created a facebook group (Northeast US Pinball For Sale group) that is similar to this thread:
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.
Quoted from zacaj:
I end up posting on pinside, in this thread, on craigslist, and in like 6 (now 7) for sale groups on FB... I end up getting sales pretty evenly spread out among the three sites
RIP Mr. Pinball Classifieds I guess. Used to be the only game in town (besides ebay) 15-20 years ago.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
Yep was my go to for buying, selling, and price checking for years. That probably ended around 5 years ago.
I posted a game there about 4 years ago. Posted a link to the Pinside ad for pictures. Got a bunch of emails asking for pictures. That's when I noticed they deleted the link to Pinside. Yeah, I'm not emailing 15 pictures...
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:
Lesbian Seagul LE,
Looks like it just came out of a box,
Full mirror blades, extra seagulls added, shaker motor, signed translight (was so hard, bird kept shitting all over it)
Was only on route a short time, just didn’t get the play it deserved, in fact nobody played it.
Always wanted a machine that would follow me around on the beach while I eat french fries.
Just posted my IMDN Pro for sale.
New Lower Price
Quoted from ghetoprobe:
Who needs a winter time project?? Selling a project ST:TNG. Complete, as far as I can tell, but the MPU has battery damage and the DMD board needs high voltage addressed (DMD piggy board is included). It comes with $800+ in brand new parts - flipper fidelity w/ subwoofer volume control, full plastic set, plastic protectors, borg ship, canon laser kit, DMD piggy board, flipper rebuild kits, raw legs, complete set of targets, etc, etc.
Asking $3500, so essentially, you're getting the machine itself for $2700. I had every intention of doing a high-end restore, but just finished a top-to-bottom restoration of Fish Tales and now I'm scarred for life. At least, I can't bring myself to start another pinball project for the foreseeable future. During that restoration I swapped the MPU and DMD boards and ran through tests on ST:TNG. Just about everything was working - DMD, sound, cannons, diverters, solenoids, switches, no credit dot (although, Alpha ramp is definitely missing a switch). Everything else checked out fine. PM for pics.
Wow, this is a very well written complete description of your situation with a well reasoned price. GLWS!
