A gentleman by the name of Scott Marion reserved a couple games in the Seattle container buy.
But he did not leave his valid email address.
Tracing the computer address he used when he reserved them appears to come from the Sacramento area.
So I am hoping he is on this thread.
If he is, or anyone knows him, please have him get in contact with me.

Thanks
Jon

Quoted from whitingjon:

I am the one that is organizing this container buy.
I just wanted to mention that the seller is is starting to get some newer , slightly used sterns in his possession for sale.
Also, a bunch of his games last time came from a couple private collectors.
He has also started providing short videos of the machines (of course, they dont show much detail, other then it plays and works).
So while I agree with most of what you are saying, there are some good stock to grab up, and not just a bunch of old run down machines.
The part I will completely agree with you on is the eyes wide open part, and the be prepared to need to clean.

Cool, but you need to tell "the seller" that an average of $3k for many of those thrashed hacked and demolished piles of shit is f'n ridiculous! How do you expect to find buyers at those retarded prices?? Not one of them is worth even HALF of what they're priced at!

Are you sure it's not Steve Marion? He's in Lodi area. I don't have contact info, but if it is Steve and not Scott, I can find someone who does.

#8304 73 days ago

Interested in the following games if anything is available... I love projects (at project pricing) but will buy nicer stuff too if available. PM if you’ve got anything...

Congo
Bram Stokers Dracula
High Speed
Harlem Globetrotters
Stern Big Game
Gottlieb Vegas
Gottlieb Deadly Weapon

Other classic Stern or Bally and weird SS Gottlieb stuff always considered.

TheOnlyest, I completely agree, and have told him that in a couple differnt ways.

I of course I sent him messages during the buy about a few of the prices.

But the bigger way we have shown this is simply not buying them. There are a few games we have passed on 3 or 4 times over the last couple years.
Now, I will also say that 6 months ago when we did the last buy, he had a probably 40-50 games that were close to 2 years old. Over the last 6 months, as new lists have come out, the number has come down to almost none. He currently has only 9 games that he started selling before 2019. So someone has purchased them (or he did something else).

In the end of the day, I just organize the buys (and get machines also), so if he cant move the machines he has, not my issue.

#8308 72 days ago
Quoted from mark532011:

Not sure if you guys know but the Seattle area is doing a container buy from Italy. Still lots of good machines left. It’s a bit of a drive from cal but the prices are good and you might be able to get a uhaul and combine a few
http://container.proludio.com/

If there is enough interested people wanting games out of this container I will take my 20 foot toy hauler and head to Washington and pick up all the games and arrange to meet up or drop off as far south as LA/Santa Clarita area

Oh thank god! I was thinking you were buying the whole lot and would get stuck with all the overpriced junk! So the container will only have the stuff you commit to buying in advance?

Hey wait, Kerry! My pinhead buddy still has the Mousin' Around you sold us 2 years ago at CAX! Now you be wanting it again?
Too bad we love it so much!

LOL, of course... did you even look at the reservation site? Each buyer chooses machine(s) they specifically want until we get a full container.

It’s too expensive to have that nasty burnt mylar all over (IMO anyway) and the seller is firm. Hoops and Genesis will be sold when I die, so hopefully not anytime soon. Never hurts to ask though!

I have a non-pinhead friend that’s looking to sell his IMVE. It’s HUO; i was the original owner - so he’s 2nd Owner. I believe it has a shaker motor and don’t think it has any other mods, maybe an external sub. He snapped me a few pics, I’ve asked for more, but from the few pics he sent it looks like he has barely played it.

I’d like to swing by his house, pull some audits, have a look at it, and help him take some quality pics soon; but i have been absolutely slammed with work and family so not sure when i’ll Have time to do that. I told him i’d Toss up some feelers on it and go from there. I’m not sure the value of IMVE, but assuming it’s as nice as it appears, i’ll put it at $4800 and go from there.

It’s located in Chino Hills. Feel free to pm me if interested.

I'm not sure if Pin/vid trades are allowed so mods please remove or ask me to do so if necessary.

For Trade - Sega Rally 2 Championship Arcade - Deluxe Edition - 50” monitor For a pin and/or pinball parts

Full-motion, sit down arcade simulator. This is the “Dave and Busters” version of the famous Sega Rally 2 arcade game with full motion platform, seat, steering wheel, and roll cage, unlike anything you will find in most arcade or home environments.

I have gone through this game in it’s entirety with complete disassembly, cleaning and repairs where necessary. Steering wheel, hand brake, pedal assembly and all other major components have been cleaned, reconditioned and tested. Boards are all day 1 clean and unpacked, repaired or burned. Rt. side speaker cover is cracked but otherwise functional. The game plays perfectly and has been adjusted to factory specification. The 50” projection monitor could use further neck adjustment once installed in its final location.

This game is hard to find especially in the deluxe edition and has seen low use and major decals are in excellent condition.

Trades involving pins preferred or asking $1500.

Happy to send pics.

Thanks

I have been buying, selling and restoring pinball machines for about 15 years. I have installed decals on approximately 50 - 60 machines over the years for myself. I have recently been doing this for others including a couple Pinsiders.
I also own a furniture manufacturing business so I have a lot of woodworking and painting knowledge over the past 35 years of doing this full time.

If you have a machine that needs new decals, I would be happy to take care of that for you.
I feel my work is very good but I am not at the same level as Chris Hutchins. I learn a little bit more with each machine I work on.

I charge $900.00 including the cost of the decals. I take all the hardware, coin door, side rails etc off of the machine and then prep, fill and sand the cabinet and install brand new decals. I paint or clean all the hardware before reassembling the machine.

I charge the same for stenciled cabinets as long as they are not damaged too badly.
I'm able to get decals and stencils for most machines.

My turnaround time is 2-3 weeks and I live in Lake Elsinore.
I can also pick up and deliver locally.

If you want any more information, please PM me.

SOLD! - Thanks, everyone.

I'm selling a CPR Centaur playfield with some slight registration issues, as well as some non-mirrored Centaur plastics. I purchased as a project machine before the game was playable, so the swap was done when I bought it. I then re-swapped the playfield and am left with this unplayed, previously swapped playfield.

Asking $600 for the playfield and $100 for the plastics, or $650 for the bundle. Location is in Folsom, just outside Sacramento.
