Posting this a little preemptively to try an get a deal rolling. I have a ST:TNG coming in this weekend that I really have no interest in. It is a routed machine (weren't they all for the most part) Over all is pretty clean. I plan on shopping it out and looking for a cash deal or a trade. Cash price will be 3800, or I will trade for an Avengers pro straight across or a LE Hulk edition with me adding some cash. Pm me if you are interested and I will get you some pics when it gets here.

Selling off two project games. A Williams Hyperball, and Stern Flight 2000. Hyperball powers up and plays, but needs some work on the handle / fire assembly. Flight 2000 needs some wiring work done with the rectifier board, game powers up and has gi lights, but nothing else. Both games are in great shape cosmeticly and the flight 2000 backglass is also in great shape. Want 700 for the pair firm. I need the room so I want these sold as a pair.

Quoted from DParcade:

I've got the bug for a clean STTNG (if Netflix would only pull the series maybe it would pass...). I've got a very clean X-Men pro with upgrades (mirror blades, sparky's display, full LED kit, an uninstalled mezelmods wolvy protector) to trade or I could package a CQ DESW (full LED kit) along with a near-mint condition Donkey Kong arcade. If anybody has a Star Trek and is interested let me know and I'll take lots of photos.

I have one but I don't think you would want to make the drive all the way up to me....

Selling a ST:TNG. Here is a little bit about what I have recently done to the pin

Rerubbered entire playfield with new white rubber, yellow on flippers.
Novused entire playfield, including removing all the ramps (would say it was about 95% stripped down for cleaning.
Replaced every GI light with a new #47 incandescent, replaced all inserts with new #44 and #555 incandescents
Replaced all flashers with new bulbs (I ran out of one type of flasher so on the right hand side of the borg ship it has 2 white led flashers in it)
Replaced all lights in the back box.
New GLM Trough Opto Board set
Cliffs on the neutral zone hole, as well as the catapult launch area
NOS Sling plastics installed.

Im sure there is more. Looking for 4300 OBO, possibly open to trades, pm me what you have. Pix can been seen here.

I have a Monopoly and a Roller Coaster Tycoon that ive decided to sell. Both games are fully led'd, recently tore down cleaned, rerubbered, along with all of the coil sleeves being replaced. They both have been routed and because of this there is flipper button wear on the cabs. I covered up the wear with lollipop rails which come with each machine. Each machine also has lit flipper buttons and a full set of Cliffys installed. Pix coming soon.

RCT - 2200 obo
Monopoly - 2600 obo

#3345 3 years ago

They just need to be put back and re-ziptied. 3800 as is for 4200 if you want me to shop it out before you buy it.

Also have a Roller coaster tycoon for sale and a monopoly, pics of those will be up soon. Would like to make a package deal for all 3.

#4508 3 years ago
Quoted from merccat:

Anyone in the Visalia/Fresno area have a good 19" arcade monitor you want to sell? My RFM's monitor (wells gardner) Has almost completely lost green and red is right behind it... P&L verified that the chasis is good so my tube is likely shot.

I have a brand new in box wells for pin2k. I will be in San Jose in two weeks and can bring it with me if you want to try and meet up. 500 takes it.

#4509 3 years ago
Quoted from Kerry_Richard:

MGMPIN... Thanks! I'll call him now.

Chris kicks ass used him many times.

#4532 3 years ago
Quoted from mann0mann:

If he's not a pinball guy, then what is he? Honest question, is his background more with Vids than? Because I've heard similar feedback and know of instance where an expensive, not easy to find medium resolution monitor got necked in the process of him doing a move. So that sort of raises questions in my mind as well for using his services.

He is just a shipper. He will move anything for you if it fits in his truck/trailer, he has no expertise in moving arcades or pinballs specifically. He is really more of a point a to point b guy. He isnt like NAVL which shows up with a big truck and 2 guys and has a bunch of stuff (corner cardboard, shrink wrap, yada yada. He said he gets most of his jobs off off the Uship website. I have used him 2 or 3 times now and never had any issues, however i will say, my games were blanketed and shrink wrapped before he showed up and i helped load them into his trailer with him. For me he is cheaper then what it would cost me to drive down to the areas he goes and pick stuff up myself. I havent used him for anyone other then pinsiders/klovers.

Another note, he did tell me if i was shipping arcades that i could request he use an open trailer instead of his enclosed one, and he could move them standing up. The price would just go up a little bit cause he has to rent the trailer from u-haul.

#4534 3 years ago
Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

He said it was because it was further north than where he was so it required more travel time.

Out of curiosity where was it? Im almost as north as north gets lol, being about 2 hours south of the Oregon boarder.

#4538 3 years ago
Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

It's up by Cottonwood

HA that's like 15 min from me. In the future feel free to pm me if you need help with stuff up here. I could have helped Chris load that pin no problem and had it done properly.

#5000 2 years ago
Quoted from PiperPinball:

What are 720's going for nowadays? $5k+ ?
Just put a new power supply in it. Plays perfect, minor burn in. Cabinet almost perfect. New decals.

Id say about half that..... 2500-3k range if its restored with a rebuilt joystick.

#5009 2 years ago
Quoted from vicjw66:

I sold mine in good condition for $850. About 5 years ago.

yeah, this unfortunately is one of those games that in the last couple of year prices have skyrocketed on, much like paperboy, and tapper.

Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

Come on, man. Don't pull that "they go for (insert absurd price)" baloney on here. I recall a super clean one on Pinside just 3 months ago for $1950. Maybe you can do a little better, but don't try to bend poeple over on the local thread.

Being in Cali i would say he could prolly get 2500 for it, and even then it might sit for a month or two before the right buyer comes along, but thats what i would price it at if it was super clean with new joystick

#5028 2 years ago
Quoted from PiperPinball:

The last 720 I sold was almost mint for $4,500 on Ebay and a Paperboy for $4,800. Very hard to find nowadays.

Then you should prolly stick to ebay, lots of people on ebay are impulse gotta have it now buyers and do pay a premium for that. We've also seen some pins sell for stupid money on ebay, doesnt mean its the norm, just found the right buyer for that moment in time.

Quoted from PiperPinball:

If you can find a nice one for less let me know?

This one sold on klov for $2500 in November.

This one sold for $1400 in November (had monitor collapse, and need a joystick rebuild)

This one sold for $1800 in November, (missing side art, but clean cab and had rebuilt joystick)

This are the 3 most recent sells i found real quick. Ebay hasnt had any sold within the last 90 days it appears.

Im not bagging on you in anyway, you can ask any price you want for it, but i just dont think you will get ebay rates here, or any of the arcade/pinball forums.

#5029 2 years ago
Quoted from vicjw66:

Wow! I haven't kept track of arcade game prices since i sold mine all off more than 5 years ago. As I remember
Tron $1000
720 $850
Super Punch out w/ extra punch out board $1500
Star Wars upright with amplifone $1200
Krull $500

These are the prices i see these titels go for now.
Tron $1200-1500, sometimes a little more, all depends on condition.
720 $1500-2500 depending on issues it has.
Super Punch out w/ extra punch out board, i would say this is 2000-2500 pretty much all day.
Star Wars upright with amplifone $2000-2500, cockpits are selling for 5k pretty easily if restored.
Krull $500 (havent really followed the price on this, but i dont think its much more then 500)

Check SF Bay Area Craigslist. Saw a very nice Hulk LE with Color DMD for $5500 a couple days ago.

That one sold already. It was a pretty decent deal considering the add ones it had.

#5289 2 years ago
Quoted from MrSanRamon:

I have had a couple of offers for my Spider-Man, both at $4600...well except for the scammer that would pay full price.
It's difficult for me to think about parting with a great game like SM for so little money, but I guess at the moment that's what it is.
If the grandkids wanted to play it more, I'd probably try keep it, but they are fickle and apparently the novelty of Spider-Man has worn off. They play NBA FB & NGG way more. I need the space so SM is the one to go.
There are certainly a lot of options for games at around $5k, but SM has to be one of the best values out there right now.

I think the market all the way around is getting softer. I think the days of everyone one getting more then what they paid for a game, or very very close to what they paid for a game are at the end (im not saying you are doing that just making a statement about prices). Ive never understood FS ads where someone list a game for NIB price or more then NIB because they added some "mods" to it. I remember seeing a SM for sale a few months ago. It was HUO with only like 400 plays on it or something like that. It was leded and had quite a few mods and looked great, and it sat well over a month with a 5k price tag on it. Im not saying your price is unfair, just saying that prices are starting to shift on used games, with all of the other options out there. I mean look at TPF that just happened. People have like 4-5 new titles to throw money at. AFMr, Houdini, Aerosmith, Dialed In, Batman 66, Alien, and maybe im missing one or two.

#5295 2 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Depends on the title. I doubt I'll have any trouble moving my ACDC Prem when I get around to it. Spider-Man and Iron Man both have Vault Editionitis.

I think it would depend on asking price, if you are in the upper price range of what they go for (what are they up to now 7500-8kish, I haven't been following them closely), I bet it sits for 2-4 weeks before finding a buyer. If your 500 under upper price range I bet it sells within a week.

Time to start looking for the first pin I can remember falling in love with as a kid... but budget is tight at the moment and I would prefer to rescue one from the brink anyway so...
Keeping my eyes open for a Whirlwind project... crappy cab OK, crappy playfield OK, not working OK... would prefer complete or close to it.

You can get them for less than 500.

Eh prices have been creeping up on them much like everything else. There is one n Reno right now for $750, I paid $600 for about 6-8 months ago and it was the cheapest one I saw pop up in a long time not to mention the only one I saw pop up in a while.

Anybody looking for one of those new pong coffee tables? I have one coming in from the Kickstarter, however I only went it on it because it was suppose to have the open of upgraded coin op, which it doesn’t they released a completely different coin op version. So now I would like to sell it and put the money towards the new coin op version. So if anyone wants one for much less then it cost to buy one new lmk. Looking for $2500 for it, will be brand new in box once it shows up.
