Yep...AND met a nice Pinsider! I KNOW! Hard to believe....but, I may be getting involved with buying out a 50's sci-fi movie poster collection. Over $100k (not me alone)...
Just a quick question a friend of mine asked. How much is a machine called Surfs Up (EM) worth?
er, maybe it was Surfer
He must mean Surf Side since that's the one on Ebay. He was a surfer, so he can't mean Surfin Safari!
Hi there all you NorthEast people. I need a piece of PDI Glass. Anyone have an extra or going to the York show and can pick one up for meeeee?
Thanks! I'm not sure it matters as I've had both. They both work.... can someone pick up a sheet for me?
Quoted from Butch2099:
If you pay him I could pick it up for you. However the distance between picking up at my house and picking up direct from Joe probably isn't much
Got ya! But thanks for the offer!
Quoted from Vdrums:
Spfxted. May we can do a group buy for PDI glass. I'd take one sheet and we'd save a lot on shipping. I'm in northern Manhattan. Anyone else?
Might be a good idea!
With Pirates and Guardians being announced, this Thread should be humming with machines for sale soon!
Anybody near me have a piece of Invisiglass? I don't care if it has the logo on it.....
My friend has a beautiful low play FLICKER. Incredible find. He paid $1,200 for it. If interested, let me know. He's in North Jersey.
My friend knows the person selling.... offered stuff, but not willing to pay the stated price...
Quoted from Whridlsoncestood:
Just a reminder in case anyone around here missed it. 10$ raffle tickets. 200 sold. Goes to project pinball to help get a machine setup in the Ronald MacDonald house here in New Haven. Winner gets this nice and clean and shopped out Team One. Pulling the name at the 24 Hour Final Battle this weekend. Let’s get this thing sold out!
Ticket bought! Thanks!
I mentioned in the Scared Stiff Club Thread....I have this custom Eyeball Shooter I would sell. I thought I could do it myself. I had an artist make the Eyeball. I bought the rod, drilled the eye and attached it with some glue. When I pulled it, it came off. Then a friend bought me one for my birthday and I forgot all about this one. If someone here wants to make it work. $50 in the USA only. PM me. Thanks!
I have a Brian Allen Alien Poster if someone wants to buy it here. Signed #21 of 100! Only took it out of tube to photograph. Has sticker and card. Beautiful...and big! $50 Shipped in the USA only. Thanks!
PINBALL MAGAZINE #5! (First PM gets it)
Just played a Star Wars Pro last night and was surprised it was pretty good. Then played the GOTG Pro. Not too bad. Then The Beatles. Lots of fun! THEN, I played The Hobbit and WOZ. (Humdingers Bowling and Games in Paramus, NJ) The one thing I noticed playing them back to back was the build quality of the games. The Stern games felt like toys after playing the JJ machines. (maybe the Stern LE's are better?)
PINBALL Magazine #5 still for sale! $45 Shipped in USA. (with bonus)!
Quoted from Richthofen:
I love that you don’t mention if you had as much fun playing the JJP games vs Stern. IMHO hobbit can be built like a brick shithouse but it’s a just terribly unsatisfying game. I’d take any of the stern games mentioned over any of the JJP games. I don’t give a crap when I drop a quarter into a game if the build quality is whatever. I want to have a good time and be excited by the game and want to play again.
I had more fun playing WOZ than any of the others. I still don't see why Hobbit gets a bad rap. A bunch of us played and had a good time.
A few things I will put up for sale: (lemme know if you wanna see pix)
• BIG Id Monster from Forbidden Planet (over a foot across) Pro assembled and painted.
• Ray Blaster Cannon from Forbidden Planet. (Hand built)
• Hand Ray Blaster from Forbidden Planet. (have the box) Lights up when trigger pulled. (Plastic and metal)
• Hand carved and finished War Machine Clock from War of the Worlds. (about 11.5" long)!
If interested...let me know! I also have the aprox 2 Foot Tall Talking Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet!
Is this worth $250?? It looks like a smaller machine? It says ALIVE and looks like Elvis with an afro. Is it a Zizzle or something?
