Quoted from Paul_from_Gilroy:

I got that DH from a guy in Brentwood for $1700 in July 2012. After 1-1/2 years I sold it to a guy in San Mateo for $2100 (December 2013, just in time for Christmas). At that point, it had an improved sub (Pyramid brand, I think), Treasure Cove backboard decal, new buildings, Mike Chestnut chromed gun handle, laser sight, new plastics... it was very nice. It had no LEDs (well, maybe it had two or three strategically-placed ones), no mirror blades, no cop car mod. It's great to see folks taking good care of iconic games like this one (instead of just letting them deteriorate).

Wow, that's crazy that Mike Chestnut chromed the gun! I just read he passed away and looked at all the awesome restores he did.

I'm thrilled to know the history of this Dirty Harry pin. This pinball shouldn't be for sale, my offer threshold just went up. I sent a paint pen and the lower left bumper "Feel lucky punk?" plastic to get signed by Clint Eastwood but ended up with a signed stock photo.

Does your GB have the old designed Slimer mech that needs constant adjustments, or did you get the new design? If it's the old one, reports are Stern isn't willing to replace it with the new improved one.

I see you got downvoted for this, it's a good question as people buying a GB Pro will want to be informed and know about the old design slimmer mechanism that doesn't work right and Stern had to redesign after only 3 weeks in production , why fault someone for bringing that to the attention of a potential buyer

Please take that to the one of many GB or Stern threads. Why bring it up on someones FS post?

Had a deal fall through WWF RR available again, trade for other dmd or $2500 or best offer.

If I had room, I'd be trying to work out a deal...but I have no room and actually need to get rid of one.

Nice looking WWFRR.

It's a good question for a potential buyer, but based on the amount of posts KPG has made in the GB thread, I'd be willing to bet he's not asking because he wants to buy.

Yeah I'm already a GB buyer, but I was interested in if he had the old designed Slimer mechanism as it wasn't mentioned in the ad, and really should be. If you take that in a negative way, by all means, let me know why that is.

Because you have no skin in the game. When you see someone selling a CFTBL that you have no interest in, do you feel you need to be the good samaritan and ask about whether it has a purple hot dog or a blue hologram to warn potential buyers? If someone is interested in buying a game, the questions and disclosure of issues should be between the seller and those interested, not some outside party who implies the seller is trying to be sneaky by not disclosing something that is not an issue on 100% of the games.

Sorry man, but it was a perfectly fine question to ask. Not sure why you feel motivated to call me out on it. As another guy above said, it was a perfectly relevant question seeing as how GB is the new pin on the block, and three weeks into production they made a pretty big design change. CFTBL isn't new, isn't in production, and isn't trying to be traded after only a week of ownership and a few weeks after release.

The slimmer mechanism that was put into first production games is known to be bad after many games , then has to adjust , then readjust , he says it's fine but his listing says only 50 plays which may not be enough to indicate a problem that most everyone is having which is why stern did change the design , it's a great question to ask in case people haven't researched , why not inform potential buyers and side with the seller for not being totally honest in the listing and mentioning that pretty big flaw ?.?

#3774 3 years ago

I clearly agree with sparky here. Mr bellman is reputable pinhead in our community bump for a sell for a honest pinhead.

That's where I have the problem: implying that the seller is not being honest. KPG implied that in a subtle way.

Thinking of selling my Diner to make room for another game. It's in great condition, fully led'd, $2900. It's located in Woodland Hills (Los Angeles area), pictures of it can be seen here:

I've since changed the purple led's on the lower playfield, and the clock going backwards issue was fixed.

I don't agree at all I think he was more looking to have the answer available for a potential buyer in case they weren't aware , me thinks you are the one implying things in a subtle way . Who cares any way the seller confirmed its the older mechanism and was honest so move on its fine

Time to move on, perhaps...

Nice looking Diner!

#3782 3 years ago

The real question is why isn't Stern just replacing the bad ones? They did it for things like the Metallica magnet board. Rob, call your distributor, and see what they can work out with Stern. They should make it right, you have a new game, you shouldn't have any issues selling it, Stern needs to fix it if there's an issue.

Help the guy out instead of creating drama folks. Anyone know if there's a service bulletin or anything from Stern? Is this just hearsay or is it documented somewhere?

I agree with this. But, everything has been disclosed now. If I wasn't in on an LE I would buy the pro and while negotiating get the distributors name whom he got it from and work on it myself if the issue popped up.

Rob is a well known stand up guy in the community. If I was looking to buy a GB pro I should do my own homework on issues that might be out there. As it's a none issue on the machine at this time it should not need to be brought up.

I don't sell games saying, "my game is completely working but watch out for a none issue on my machine that pops up on some of the others." It's working, so its a moot point. Unless, you are going to buy it. Then ask the seller yourself for you own personal knowledge.

#3784 3 years ago

Ok. Not sure how we arrived at this, but let me be clear... Me wanting to "trade" my Ghost Busters has nothing to do with my PERFECTLY working game! My issue is with Stern the company, not GB the game.

I posted in the GB issues thread that my metal guide was starting to show signs of bending a bit by the GHOST target, but that's it! When I received my game, the first thing I did was move the Slimer switch wire to the middle and zip tie it as others have done. It plays perfectly and Slimer hits register as they should. At this time all the emails I have received about my game have been asking for a selling price and not if my game has any issues. LOL!

There is nothing for me to contact Stern about on this game. Don't believe me, come and play my game and see for yourself. Also, it is so rare that someone would want to move a game after purchasing it? I think not...

And once again, this game is for trade, not for sale.

Have a great day!

#3788 3 years ago

GLWS Rob!! Im sure it will be gone quick!

#3789 3 years ago

Strange twist, I mention the Slimer mechanism, and all hell breaks lose as if I am questioning the integrity and ethics of the guy selling the machine. I was simply wondering if he received the new or old mechanism, and sure- it was probably to the benefit of a potential buyer as well. The zip tie fix method seems to only work for a small time before needing to correct the placement again. This is why Stern didn't just install that fix on the line, they redesigned the mechanism from the ground up. How that got twisted as if I was "subtly implying" the guy is a rip off, con, fraud, etc is very strange and just some more Pinside BS. Pretty lame.

Either way, good luck w/ the trade.. I am sure someone will snatch it up because NIB Pro's aren't going to be available for another couple of months anyway.

#3790 3 years ago
Quoted from jwwhite15:

Thanks! I'm getting a bunch of requests for pictures of the backbox area. I keep the game at a property in Woodland Hills and I'll be back there this week, so I'll add some pictures then and them post here. That's assuming this is still a for sale thread and not yet another crap on anything Stern thread

I'm being asked why I'm selling it. It's at a property where models from out of town rent rooms, and Diner just isn't popular with them alas. Seems like the girls prefer the dmd era of pins. Likewise I also have a Time Machine at that same location that I may sell for the same reason, they don't seem to like it either.

I strongly suggest just seeing the game in person, you can play it and see if it's what you need. They are very close to the corner of Topanga/Ventura just for reference. Just message me if you want to see them so I can arrange meeting you at the property, then you can also take a look at Time Machine if that interests you as well.

something something better than the original boards that shipped with early WOZzes

#3796 3 years ago
Quoted from BenetBoy78:

Educate me here. What is the reason to note the 5volt boards? Thanks.

My experience with my previous WOZ was that the 5v boards had some issues with lockups due to static electricity. The newer 7.5v boards also had issues, but it's not until they started shipped boards with "buffers" on them that the LED issues ceased.

The good thing is that if you have any issues with unbuffered 5v or 7.5v boards, JJP will ship you the buffered boards under warranty. It's not really a big deal, but many do prefer newer WOZ builds so they get buffered LED boards.

Also, a little fun fact, early builds connect the 27" display via VGA cable instead of DVI. The DVI connections run at a true 1080P, 1920x1080, and the ones with VGA run at a lower resolution, around 720P. Not that noticeable, but just thought I'd mention.

I hope I don't stir up any controversy here with that information, I know some are sensitive to this kind of thing
