Some countries put the symbol after the decimal, including parts of French speaking Canada.

And they probably use the metric system too!! bah!

I completely understand that other countries do that, but we are in The United States.

My guess would be that andre060 is likely from somewhere else, and slips into it on occasion. Or maybe he just did it on accident. I've seen it on occasion, and I always just assumed that the person spent some time in a non-US market.

Thanks!

Is that the game that has the high score screen as "The Bishop of Battle". I thought I remember seeing that. It's a pretty cool reference to the 80's movie Nightmares.

There is a Klondike in this upcoming estate sale in Rancho Palos Verdes.

#8015 6 months ago

Selling a late run TWD Pro with shaker. Great condition located in San Marcos. $4800 (OBO) - I'll ignore low offers. Will consider trading options for an Iron Maiden. Photos are on craigslist or can be emailed. The machine is available for viewing. I've had the machine two year. Plays great, it's just time to mixup my two pin lineup.

Are you saying your passing on the Rusty dusty, dirty sale?
You cant see the playfield thru the glass.
All kidding aside, thanks for posting.

Yeah, I believe that machine has a special high score screen champion.

Similar to grand champion on pinball, there is a "Bishop Of Battle" champion on Aliens.
It's a homage to a classic 80s movie. You should check out the movie Nightmares from 1983 starring Emilio Estevez. It is about 4 separate urban legends. One of the urban legends is about a Billy Mitchel type savant. He passes the level 13 of the hardest arcade game ever made. Noone was there when he won because he broke into the arcade after closing. As a young kid who spent his weekends in the arcade during the early 80's, that movie was right up there with Tron.

There are more pictures in there if you scroll through, including one of the playfield. Looks like someone cleaned the glass to take the photos. It looks like it might be pretty decent, although I don't have the good eye that some of you guys have. The backglass seems to look pretty good. Legs are real rusty but that should be fixable.

The auction details say this: Williams “Klondike” Pin Ball Game – Locked

So presumably the key is lost. Hard to say what mechanical condition it is in, but overall it seems complete.

I have no idea what this might go for at one of these estate sales. I have gone to some local estate sales and picked up some pretty good deals on various random stuff. I also don't know much about Klondike, but I looked it up and it seems to be a fairly desirable EM.

The estate sellers seem to be a mixed bag in my experience. Sometimes they are glad to take cash for a decent price, other times they seem to want what I would consider too high of a price. I wonder if it might be a situation where if they don't get it out of there by the last day, they would take a good offer to get rid of it. Although, I'm not sure what that would be. What do you think? $200 maybe?

Also, who knows if someone will come in and buy it. For a while I was going through the estate sales looking for 70s vintage stereo systems. I found some really nice-looking stuff too, but then I also found out from talking to some of the sellers that there are a bunch of people that go around looking specifically for those, and they always show up early on the first day with cash in hand and snatch them up. So, I never even saw any of them on site. Could be the same with the pinballs.

Just watched that Bishop of battle segment from nightmares movie.
Don’t know how I missed it, maybe had just been so long I’ve forgotten. Pretty sweet short story. I enjoy seeing the old arcade scenes. Only downer was i think JJ took out a meteor during the level 13 battle.

I'm heading to California on a road trip with my daughter for a few weeks at the end of June and looking for an Iron Maiden LE or Premium. Will be driving down to Anaheim for the Youtube Vidcon and spending some time at Disneyland.

Let me know if you've got one for sale or know of one (could pick it up on our way, we're driving a Buick Enclave and have space for it).

You sure you don't want a Shaq Attaq project? Arguably a better game. Wife wants it gone.

Anyone interested in a nice Family Guy? It has very cool Spooner Street blade art and Cliffy's installed, and it plays well. It was lightly routed a while back with some small scratches on the cabinet. It has some slight wear around the "N" insert that was repainted to touch it up, although I do have the "N" replacement decal. It's in very good shape overall. I am thinking of selling it to fund another game. Please PM me if interested. Thanks.

Thinning the herd by losing some EM's

Mad World (Bally) 1964 -- some startup issues. Game is complete.
Batter Up (Gottlieb) 1970 -- Add-a-ball version of Baseball. Game is complete and works. End of game issues.
Target Alpha (Gottlieb) 1976 -- Being shopped out and will be for sale at CAX. Complete game and good looking playfield.
Fireball (Bally) 1972 -- Was at GSPF. Has a couple of issues, but is complete and plays. Will need some diagnostics done to keep up and going.

Let me know of any interest. No prices here, because I'm still thinking about what I want for them.

Thanks for looking.

OK People! I need that Devil Riders in Phoenix! Is there somebody in socal willing to be paid to get it from Phoenix to socal by july 14, when I would be there to pick it up from you? I will have already paid for it, you would just need to get it to southern cali by july 14. Gas and your time would obviously be compensated. And if you happened to set it up and play for a few days before I get there... coolio!

#8046 5 months ago

I'm down to 4 games and might need to let another go. Problem is I'm pretty attached to the 4 I have left, was easier to whittle things down before. Bleh.

On the other hand, I have a garage for my games and it's half the size of that apartment by itself, so there's that. Problem is I keep fitting arcade cabs in where I used to have pins. Backwards from so many collections, I know.

Not me. I have 20 arcade games and 2 pins currently.

Every vid collector I know who got into pinball sold off arcade games to get more pins. But they were all classic collectors mostly, and those to me are fun to visit than own.

#8049 5 months ago

In this past year, I took funds for one A/B titled pin and Restored a Double Dragon, Contra, Heavy Barrel, Nfl Blitz and got a really Nice upright Starwars and still had cash to mod my latest pick up a original restored Afm. I filled my game room with a ton of childhood memories to share with my kids. Nothing wrong with pin and vids.
