Chris from Sly Fox, who delivers pinballs in California door to door at a reasonable price, is making deliveries next weekend. I have a pinball coming from Southern Ca to Northern. He is really easy to deal with.

Thinking about moving my Fish Tales. Game is super nice. Very little fade, LED's, lighted flipper buttons, red speaker light mod, monster fish mod and color DMD. Not sure if I'd part with the DMD but might if the right game came along. I'm only looking to trade and don't really have cash to add to a deal. Games I'm looking for are Dirty Harry, Congo, Whirlwind, Jurassic Park, Star Wars (DE) and NBA Fastbreak. I'm open to other titles as well so go ahead and let me know what you have. I'm located in Santa Clarita.

Quoted from SpecialK-33:

Haha, well that was fast I've seen this game in person and it's a really nice example. Playfield is bright and vibrant and the cabinet is darn nice too. You can't get another JP or WW though Mike

Anyone interested in a SST? I just moved a few months ago and my game room is now relegated to the garage and I am running out of room. Need to make room for my new South Park machine I'm getting for the kids.

If anyone local is interested in a NIB Spike Shaker Motor and/or a "NIB" Ghostbusters Pinball Universe center post/outlane upgrade kit - hit me up! I won't be needing them any more.

GB has a fun spooky shaker usage. I put this kit in my pro and it took 10 minutes and is a good bang for the buck mod. GLWS

I cancelled my GB order, so no need for the shaker or kit.

Sorry to hear, but this gives me a prime opportunity to share a funny story. I work at an elementary school and today they were doing a science and math lesson that involved estimating and weighing and measuring and given the time of year they made it into a pumpkin carving lesson, weighing and measuring before and after scooping the guts from the pumpkins and measuring ingredients to bake pumpkin muffins and other fun things. Anyway, I walked around a corner this morning and one of the volunteer moms was walking down the hall and had two nice size pumpkins cradled up front against her "chest", and my mind immediately said "Whoa Nellie!", fortunately it was not repeated by my mouth, but I had a fun chuckle.

#4672 3 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

None of my business, but why? I rather like GB. Just wish I had room and money. I'd get that Hobbit too!

#4673 3 years ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

I've been trying to force myself all year to like the game because I love the theme & art so much, but the truth is - it's just a poorly designed piece of shit. The flipper gap is terrible, the droopy flipper alignment sucks, the magna slings cause cheap drains, the airballs cause cheap drains, the right ramp doesn't work (ball rolls back most of the time), the ecto goggles don't really do anything, the linear mode structure is terrible, and the current code is filled with bugs. It's just too frustrating & not fun. It lacks the charm of the movie entirely. All of THAT should have made me cancel, but I was still thinking "It's GHOSTBUSTERS, I'll get over all that cuz it's GHOSTBUSTERS!" ... but it was the playfield QC issues that were the final straw. I went to Portland over the weekend and saw multiple Premiums with insert ghosting. After that, I was officially out. I finally said "why am I spending so much on this fucking mess...and on top of that, it's going to disintegrate."

On top of that - Stern is just rubbing me the wrong way in general lately with their delays, poor QC, arrogance & greed. The whole Batman thing was a major turnoff. Had my game shipped in June when it as supposed to - I probably would have sucked it up and stuck it out, hoping for code to save it....but, I've been there before - and as time has passed and my game didn't ship, the reality of this title really hit me before it arrived at my door. So - I bailed.

Stern doesn't release production numbers, you won't find them for any of their games. I can tell you for Woah Nellie it's pretty damn low though.

Don't do it. Stern's been using a shitty new playfield manufacturer & many people have insert ghosting and clear cracking on games made this year. Do yourself a favor and get one made in 2015 or earlier.

Your story is my story exactly. Despite all the red flags I still had a GB premium on order. I finally canceled after so many delays and quality concerns. I'm glad it was delayed now because it seems so crazy to buy something so expensive with so many problems, and Stern has done everything they can to make me not want to buy from them. I'm selling my TZ and was looking to see if Stern had gotten their act together, but it seems like they're just getting worse.

#4687 3 years ago

Hi guys.
Just trying to test the waters here. I'm hoping you will give me some good info. I've started shopping out a really nice Williams IJ. Im debating on continuing to fix it up and keep it for a while or just sell it now. I really don't have the room for this in my gameroom. I'm curious as to what you guys think is a fair asking price.

Now that I've stripped and cleaned it up, the playfield is absolutely fantastic. No lifting, cracking, etc. It's really great! I'm honestly amazed at how nice the playfield looks. All optos, switches, and coils are working. Dmd is great. Speakers/audio also great. I just installed all new rubbers. It shines! I've got flipper rebuild kits ready to go in. Wire ramps are perfect. Plastics are great (except slingshots).

Negatives.. Some moderate fading on cabinet sides. 2 chips are present on the back of the cab. Another small one is present on the top left side corner of the head. Holes are present from a lockdown bar. Slingshot plastics and all drop target decals need to be replaced. Some lamps need replacing. (I'm debating on putting in an LED kit).

This machine is not collector's quality and I know this. I know I could spend $300 on new cabinet decals which would greatly improve the look. Slingshot plastics and drop target decals aren't expensive. Lamps aren't expensive either.

I'm in nor cal. What do you think it's worth as I've described? Is anyone interested?

Thank you in advance.

Anyone here have any of those Pinsound boards? I was thinking about toying with my Creech. Would love to see what some real audio would sound like in comparison to the MIDI music. I searched the forum and didn't come up with anything and I did a search on YouTube. I found a TFTC clip but nothing with Creech.

#4700 3 years ago

It cracks me up that people are still whining about the flipper gap on GB. hahaha..lol..

Anyway I've got a decent players condition Flash that I just went completely through including all new flipper parts and coils, rubbers, wax, took apart and cleaned all solenoids, drop targets..etc. $700 in north OC.

I need a spot for Flash Gordon I picked up vesterday.
