Really Gang, Cute. To much time in cyberspace. It's called caps lock, oops. That bored?

#1918 4 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

If you're going to try and sell people a $5k Fish Tales you might not want to act grumpy and confrontational, just saying. Your prices are on the ridiculous side, so starting fights isn't going to do you any favors.

It's like I'm texting old girlfriend. Interpretation...all in the mind. Ya, 5k Good price for this Fish Tales.. So much grief over a caps lock mistake. Granted Newbie here at pinside, but not to pinball.

#1922 4 years ago

Will trade my BACK TO THE FUTURE for a Ripley's in same condition, or Pinball magic , also in same condition. Hell, I'll take an Arabian Knights for the BTTF, and a little cash to owner.

Quoted from bellbrand:

For sale nice getaway no fade no drill holes. A really clean pin.

I was just in a Garage last Saturday for CL Getaway. He was firm at $2k and it was no way near as nice as this, needed tons of cleaning and a new display. This machine is Gorgeous, Very Nice. I was only willing to go $1200 for that sale, he said he could take it apart and sell part by part on ebay. I said, Good luck, "that's 3 times harder than cleaning yours". GLWS, Sounds like fare price for 100% machine.

#2819 4 years ago

Listing my Gottlieb 1971 EM "2001" Wedge head; thought I would throw it up here first beforej putting it on LA and Orange county Craig's list this weekend.
Perfect working machine. When I got it the control bank and tilt relays needed springs, and R relay needed work. All fixed now. Match and 0-9 unit needed some work. Found back panel original metal one. Some shop work and lights that weren't working fixed. Game is in full players condition now , every light, function and target working. Reels fully working. Fun game 20 drop targets. Cabinet little rough but could easily be touched up. Back glass is gorgeous, say 8+ out of Ten. Playfield not bad , some wear by flippers. Asking $750, local pick up. I'm in Anaheim by Disneyland.


#2837 4 years ago

Agreeing with Paul. Pinball machines breed like rabbits, first there's one, then two, then ten.

When and where is pin a go go? Heard about but believe it didn't happen last year?

#3056 4 years ago

Anyone want a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Has to be fast , sorry for that. Game working great except the auto kicker. I installed long shooter rod to bypass this problem. Game priced fairly for some playfield wear and usual cabinet dings. Cabinet and playfield is 7 out of 10. Back glass a 9. Every function ,light,switch, working except auto kicker. New rottendog power supply installed. Found replacement screen, working great. Just did all rubbers and installed new black flipper bats with green rubber.
$2000 cash.

#3062 4 years ago

Discussion on price has been interesting to say the least. Luckily no price police knocking on door asking for my pinsider badge.

There's a game of GOT on location at Eighty-Two downtown LA, 4th St. No where near Chino Hills, but fun night out, on average about 25 pins there.

#3236 4 years ago

I was at that auction. This is not the same Jokerz! That game was trashed and this is a much better cabinet.

Quoted from TheOnlyest:Is that the Jokerz! from Captains auction a couple weeks ago?

#3239 4 years ago

I admit I bidded 300 for trashed Jokerz, but no way I spend a penny more on it. I have a Jokerz complete rebuild, Ramps and plastics and board work., almost done. I would need $1500 min. If you come to so cal anytime soon contact me. Big Guns available next week, finishing shop job.

Quoted from TheOnlyest:lol, you aint kiddin! That game was thrashed, and some fool paid $700 + commission for it??! My apologies to "scasey

Before this thread we only had Craigslist...
This has been a great rather upscale model to the Craigslist nightmares some of us have had, or perhaps not, but I've had some interesting encounters when it's come to pinball on CL.

Today and it started late last night on the greater 5 County area from LA to San Diego CL listings for pinball. They are now being bombarded with fake pinball adds. Need a Honda Accord? Search pinball. Need a tractor or bobcat, search pinball.

I think this is either a funny prank, or even Craigslist is tired of pinball listings showing up repeatedly daily.

#3376 4 years ago

That's the one, over a thousand adds so far.

YUP-82 IS A BAR and late night hang out. Sometimes great taco cart and food truck. Great bar, well ,taps, cocktails. One side is classic arcade uprights, other side is Molly's premium pins, some classics, some modern, lots of inbetween. GB,GOT,MM- great mix of old and new. They often change a few from month to month to always mix it up and make it feel fresh.

Quoted from Eskaybee:

Oh dang, 82 looks to be night hangout eh? Google says it opens at 6pm - No lunch?

#3806 4 years ago

OK, I'll go $1678.99, Indy me. Pm me if offer is good.where is Martinez?

#3812 4 years ago
Quoted from SLeRiC:

Indiana Jones is worth well over $5K ?
Maybe interested in trade?

I tried that, don't think he was interested, it was a long shot.
Yes, if you have a working Indy they average in today's market for well over 5k, topping 6k is starting to reach if cabinet and playfield are minty fresh.
Calipinball24's price seems fair, would have to see it in person most likely. I'm sure it will sell quickly. Money talks when your there in person!!

#3822 4 years ago
Quoted from Reality_Studio:

, I need that for the game that will be replacing it

What you getting to replace Diner and cupholder??

#3826 4 years ago

Steve- I heard that if you put bunk beds in master there's room for 2 more machines. Tempting Bad Cats in AZ too!
I'm so out of room, my wife is about to kill me, she doesn't know there's another coming next week.

#3829 4 years ago

Damn Steve- I guess that's good news! You sure you can only get 2 in guest bedroom, I know I could fit 3 in mine?
Diner is fun to! I wish I had more cash right now or I'd already Pm'd Reality_Studio.

#3830 4 years ago

Tell Us, how much for the Time machine?

#3836 4 years ago
Quoted from TheOnlyest:

But she's been MIA for a week, so the drama and unknown is faaaaar from over.

Steve- Sorry bro, even if its for the better it still sucks to go through. You tough man, you'll come up better for it. Had several friends in our age group go thru this lately. The Big-D always blows. Better now than another painful 10 years.
But hey, there's pinball!! Forget about her. I know where you work, plenty of Babes there!

#3853 4 years ago

Centaur is a great old school game with amazing art package. I saw a similar one sell for $1800 in November. I stood there and played it to. With any pin, things break. Half the fun of owning 30 year plus pins! Part of the game.

Quoted from Gorf:

Looking for a Gottlieb Wipeout pinball.

How much you looking to spend?, know a guy, but would have to ship it in and cost extra $500 for that.
Just got a Flintstones from him and almost got his nice wipeout to.

#4030 4 years ago

Looking for someone's playfield rotisserie for two playfield restorations including Flintstones mentioned above. Someone has to have a used one taking up space in garage they don't want anymore? Buying new seems pricey at $290 shipped. I feel it's one of those devices I also would use couple times then sits in corner of garage. Or if there is someone who wants to rent there's for 3,4,5 months?
I am in Anaheim and don't mind short drive to avoid shipping costs.

#4048 4 years ago
Quoted from Reality_Studio:

Well that was quick lol, sale pending on this one

Damn, that was quick. Maybe we should make a rule on this thread about posting in the middle of the night, so we all have a chance.
Slept through another great pin.

#4054 4 years ago

Its so hot, I'm afraid to turn on a machine today.

#4075 4 years ago
Quoted from pin-head:

I just wanted to drop in and say "hi"

You know, Motordome is not a bad game! Fully working early Bally , pretty solid games. Maybe he would do $700 in person?
Go play a bunch at Pinball Hall of fame. Be surprised what you might like. Good to have about ten titles in your head you want during your search. With that knowledge base, when a pin comes up on your list, you know to move fast on your budget.
Good Luck in search.

#4110 4 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Dayum - if that was local I might be tempted to bite.

It is local, just 6 hour drive there and back.
And wasn't there a shipper for us on this thread for Nor Cal, So Cal shipping, $150 each way?
Love that name and number again.

#4113 4 years ago
Quoted from kpg:

If you use Chris / Sly Fox shipping he'll probably charge u around $220 or less to bring it down to you. He's awesome

That's it, I couldn't remember.
Chris sly fox. Can someone please PM his number or email?
Thanks Eric

#4119 4 years ago

Quoted from practicalsteve:

UGH! why am I broke!!!!

We're all broke!!! Thanks for the bump. I can't even walk in my garage, I here the excuse of "Need to make room", but I really do!
If it doesn't sell by Pin-A-Go-Go 2017, I'll bring it up.

#4442 3 years ago

I just went back and took a look past few pages. All pictures removed till about a month ago. They left a rollergames I think because it was marked sold. $800, good price for a rollergames.
I guessing here, but they prefer market adds so if it sells you donate some cash. I always do for pins and machine's anyway.
Don't like being censored in a sub forum like this. Pinside, what's up? Makes me not want to donate next time. Being honest....

#4471 3 years ago

I'm just going to miss pictures by O-Din and Aurich and others that were comedy to comments and ideas.
Post a dumb comment, here comes a funny picture of a cat, or a dog, or a face.
I have sold 3 pins and a bunch of parts in the last year. My donation tally is over $200, probably little more. Am I rich, No. Did I make money....No.....did I break even....maybe, I'd say no, maybe down a couple hundred. But, pinside offered me the ability to move extra stuff. I was more than happy to donate!
The point for me isn't donating money, I'm good. It's that now I can't post a picture below of an extra fish tales rod plastic I have. Yes, I can go make an add. And I will today for it.
But now I can't post a picture of my cat lying down on it yesterday while I was trying to photograph it. Then she wanted to clean her but for all you to see.
I'll go post in the thread cats and pinballs. Maybe some comedy in that forum is still available???

Quoted from atwong:

Hi Everyone, I'm a new person on this site and I'm in the market for my first pin. I don't know anything and if you have any recommendation, would be happy to hear them. Thanks!

Buy a cheap EM, make it your first practice machine. Regardless of budget , go for $500 or less and learn it all there. Then upgrade in few months. No hurry, plenty of pins in the greater tri County area.
You also may get several PM's messages from guys trying to sell. Like I said, lots of pins available and there will be next year to.
Go to a show, see what you like. Banning will be first up in March. Go to club 82 in LA, 20 pins on location. See what you like.

#4617 3 years ago
Quoted from atwong:

I don't know anything and if you have any recommendation,

I agree, so many pins available in orange and LA County's that shipping in your first pin I don't recommend. Seeing and playing before you buy, and seeing if it has any issues. Buying your first pin be prepared to learn to fix it to.

I had mentioned a few places to play. I forgot to mention one of the best dinning and pinball places around. Doomid has an amazing restaurant excellent food. The pinball room is top notch. The only place you will find a Rob Zombie, Ghostbusters LE, America's most Haunted, and a Georgous Funhouse all on location! Many more. Shane is also a great pinball guy to buy from. I personally have purchased 5 from him.

$35 bucks gets you a Heart+. I did it after selling a pin. It's just money, what's another couple bucks when we all have spent Thousands! I sold an EM for a $60 profit, actually wish I had kept it, but the guy was nice and it was his first pin.
I see and know a few sellers that really could donate more.
The Best thing about the Heart + is when you PM members you can include picture's in communication.Been worth it for me because I sell tons of parts.

#4884 3 years ago
Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

Good catch. Ooops

I hope this post doesn't get me in trouble.
What's up with these 4 Gottlieb?
First they were all over our local Craigslist for over a month. Then I thought pintastic had them. Then they showed up at Captains auction few weeks ago, bidding stopped at $1000 each. Now on this thread for a week plus.
I so hope you sell them. I'm just confused when EM's broke the $700 mark, even fully restored. Someone indeed spent some time on them, not sure about coin doors, there not original in my opinion.
It's just lately pinsider trading has had some other EMs in the 3k plus range. Now these 5, I ignore overpriced pins on eBay and there are plenty of overpriced EM's there to.
I always see EM's in the $300-$700 in the greater San Diego to LA Craig's listings. Few today.
Value vs restored are not the same thing.
Once again don't want to be price police, not my thing, to each his own. But for $6800, I mean $8500, this seems like a horrible deal.

#4886 3 years ago
Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

I am selling them at a big loss so obviously I overpaid.

Sorry for your loss. Don't think a downvote was necessary , but oh well. I'll take high road and not do the same to you. Like I said, just my opinion. I wont go into details about seeing and playing them that day at auction. I really don't think any EM is worth more than $1k, just don't. Value and bang for your buck can yield 2-3 nice DMD's at this price for 5. Or one A-list game.
Brings me back to original question, who and why does any dealer flipper feel an Em is worth this much?
Just because one Dealer sells at a high price doesn't mean that sets the bar that high. I'm sure we all have had one or 2 pins go for way more than we thought we would get. Doesn't mean that's the benchmark from now on a that title. Nice CQ Earthshaker recently sold for $3600, doesn't mean all Earthshakers are now that much, even with new decals, display, ramps and plastics, led lighting and of course, "Was stripped to field and every part cleaned". Still an Earthshaker value $2800.
Restored or not, just an EM,and I'm a huge fan of them. They all have there unique qualities and everyone should have one in there collection. Personally I'v had 8 now over the years. Enjoyed the hell out of them. Regret selling a couple, want my 2001 back. Worked my ass off on them, fixing switches and cleaning, rubbers and lighting. never felt the need to charge double what I paid, maybe made $50 on all of them. I was just happy to bring a pin back to life and sell to a first time pin buyer or someone happy to find a title they had been looking for. I'm not in the business of making money off of selling pinballs. I'll leave that to the guys that pick them up on craigslist, drive them cross town and add $1000 bucks to purchase price next week.

Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

That is why we put them for sale and listen to offers.

Your right, maybe woke up on wrong side of the broom today. I've had a lot of pinballs and really dont get why Em's reached this mark. It's a general annoyance that I lashed out on you.
Like the new Get Smart Avatar. So I up voted you.
Moving on, GLWS.
They were pretty that day at auction and caught my eye.

In general game kicked my ass, fast orbits, bob killing me in center field, magnets it seems everywhere. Very fast game. Hobbit is alive and well, 4 games no issues. Theater of magic rounds out the trifecta.

2 Game Plan Foxy Lady cocktails.
One's working, all mechs and displays, rather clean for her age. Just needs battery soldered to cpu, i have it and will include. Also have manual and schematic paperwork, rare for these games. Needs new rubbers.
The second Foxy in this package is ugly destroyed playfield, powers up, no worky due to major corrosion on cpu. But has all boards present and displays briefly light up, means they work. This one is a parts machine only. Not worth trying to bring to life unless you want a serious project.
$500 for both, firm , firm, combo only, you have to take both!
PM me if interested.
Ill give it a couple days here, then move to OC craigslist if no interest.
Then onto captains auction by the 26th.
Need space now, need these gone.

Quoted from uncivil_engineer:

Having purchased a project pin from Eric before, let me tell, when he says "giant box of stuff", he means a GIANT BOX OF STUFF. He won't let you leave until you have just about everything you need to get the game up and running. Buy with confidence...

Thanks Alan! The Hurricane Turned out awesome with your genius and knowledge.
( Alan was one of the super techs at this years pin-a-gogo, Thanks for all your work on that show by the way!)
Hurricane a little rougher than this Jokerz, it really just needs some polish and throw the upper deck and ramps back on.
It's one of those new black and yellow costco tubs, rather than a box!
