Quoted from bellbrand:

My daughter wants either an Avengers or a LOTR. I have located an Avengers now I am looking for someone selling a LOTR and have her play both and decide.
Thanks
Lisa

Fwiw; my nephews and nieces always gravitated towards LoTR. The ring + blaring were their favorites. And when I showed them about the 3 main multiballs and how you get to destroy the ring after doing those multiballs...forget about, they were hooked and addicted for life like no other pin. They did not like avengers at all and I can't blame em, very tough to make shots.

Is anyone going to the Banning expo in January? Be there with family in tow!

There's an expo in Banning? Hell ya I'm gonna go. Is it the first one?

Quoted from Aurich:

You're just the man these days when it comes to hooking up random people with pinball favors!

Funny shit.

Contemplating, but haven't decided to let go of Metallica and pick up 2 B titles like RBION with either congo or fish tales. Any thoughts from the support group?

#307 5 years ago

Well I really do like Metallica a lot. Just contemplating the decision. As rob stated; with my small lineup, 2 pins can be more beneficial than one Metallica. And STLE isn't going anywhere - love that game.

I've owned RBION before and fish tales got me hooked on pinball back in the 90s. So I know what I'm getting myself into with these 2 pins. I've only played Congo a few times (at rare heroes) and liked what I saw. But None of them are as good as Metallica (overall), but the thought of having an extra pin is enticing. I dunno; I'll probably ride it out through the holidays and see how I feel then. Just looking for support group opinions

Oh and what are the going prices on those 3? I'm thinking:
-huo RBION $3k-$3400?
- good condition FT and Congo ~$2500 or so?

Quoted from dapperdan24:

TWD pro Refinery edition #1 is in the house! Any local pinsiders who want some time on this beauty, PM me and we'll set something up. Solid first impressions for me, but I am easy to please and I haven't had a real machine for a while!

Grats Jason. I may hit you up on that! The canon pass has been a horrid death trap lately and I've driven through lake arrowhead twice in the last week to get home. Next time I'm stopping by!

#339 5 years ago
Quoted from dapperdan24:

Thanks brother! You are more than welcome to stop by. Only problem is that I sold my house in Lake Arrowhead (along with my pinball collection) and moved to Murrieta. So unless that detour around the Cajon pass take you way down here, that may not be the best plan Now, if you come out to see Rob and then mosey on down to Murrieta, that could be a little party!

Oh dang dude. Didn't even notice lol. Grats on the move then too

Quoted from Troz:

AC/DC just walked out the door, ready to buy a Metallica Premium. Anyone selling in SoCal?

Oh man TROZ. I got my Metallica just a few months ago nib. So it's pretty darn nice. I know it's not a keeper for me, I just don't know if I'm ready to part with it nor do I know what I'm going to replace it with. I'll probably sell it, but Lemme get back to you.

What's the price at for Metallica anyway? Maybe we can do a quick price check - It's not that beefed up with mods and some can be easily removed to cut costs; but it's approx 3 mos old, huo - bought nib. Has shaker, sparky helmet, sparky protector, hammer light mod (not installed yet - I know I've been lazy), snake jaw light mod (not installed either), has pinnovators headset and invisiglass. I'm ok with removing shaker, invisiglass, and/or headset to keep costs down. Oh and I replaced most the rubber for white - I can easily put it back to black stock.

Hey guys, I got a friend in so cal (Covina) looking to buy his first pin. Budget is around $2500. 100% working as he knows nothing about pinball maintenance or repair. I'm thinking something like FT, TS, Congo, JD, RFM, but Let me know what you got. PM or reply here.

Thanks.

He's been "selling" that pin for over a year.
I am debating whether to buy an SM for $5200. Should I wait for supposed VE? Plus I have no room. May have to sell Whitewater or IJ. Uggghh!

Id wait; SMVE is looking to be inevitable especially with the whitewood pics getting splashed around on facebook.

If anyone in So Cal is looking to dump their HUO SM before the VE's hit, look me up. I have a friend looking to make his first purchase. He'd also be interested in IMVE too. Or Possibly ST Prem.

HUO machines only please. Thanks.

Quoted from Aurich:

His only flaw is that he goes to bed freakishly early.

hah, that reminds me of when i told Rare Hero my working hours. He's like you wake up at 4:30....in the morning!?! WTF is wrong with you. lol.

yea, i go to bed at 9:30pm. is that freakishly early too?

#2097 4 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

I can't even comprehend it. I've been trying to wake up at 6:30 so I can go to a 7:15 bootcamp workout class...it's practically impossible. I did it on Wednesday, but today I just couldn't f*cking get up. I have no idea how you do it.

Hah! Have a kid and sleep goes out the door, you'll be up at 6:30 no prob

Well it's midnight now and I'm still awake! Just got done setting up IMVE & TWD! Let's see how things go in the morning, I'm supposed to be up at 6 for a 5k run/walk <hesperia days>.

Quoted from Rarehero:

Somehow Pinballbulbs convinced people that every game should be purple. It's bizarre. To be fair, it doesn't look as blown out in person...but it definitely doesn't go with most games....it takes away from the original colors in the artwork.

It worked well for BDK.....but that's cause it is BDK and you don't want the artwork to be seen

But yea, too much color Christmas-feel just doesn't work. I love my IMVE factory lighting; bright, clean, and clear.

#2325 4 years ago

Looking for a local price check. My friend is contemplating buying my IMVE. It's 3 weeks old from the latest run just last month and is practically new with low plays. It has shaker and service rails installed with external sub hookups (not including the sub), all rest is stock.
I told him $4600 should be the fair market value on it. Would you guys concur? On the flip side, if he doesn't buy, is anyone interested?

TIA
Steve

#2328 4 years ago

Thanks guys. Sounds like I'm on the high side and $4100-4200 is around the right ball park.

Thanks Lisa! Looks like this was posted in the pinside market earlier this month. Very hard to tell from the pics, but looks to have gone around the block a few times. I'll reach out and see if it's still avail, thanks for the lead

#3186 3 years ago
Quoted from bellbrand:

You did it didn't you StLE has left the building

Hah! Don't even ask me why. I had no motives and nothing to replace it with. Definitely a big regret. Hopefully, fate intervenes and whatever pin I do pick up next fills that void. To bad hobbits don't come as easy as sterns or that would be the one to take its place.

#3189 3 years ago

Sounds like it. I think beginning this week or next.

If pizza port in solana beach still has some pretty decent games we could meet up there.
I'll buy the first two, 2 , pitchers of beer .

Pizza port is awesome!! Great beer, even better pizza. They only had POTC last time I was there (almost a year ago).

Quoted from mann0mann:

Longtime Lurker and Vid guy. I'm ready to buy my first pin....trying to stay around $2K. Looking for something that will good for newbs...I have lots of kids that are at our house with our children and family members. Have played alot...been to PAGG twice, go to the pinball museum often (although I always leave there frustrated and not wanting a pin afterwards) and I own a business in a shopping center next to Phoenix Games in Concord....so I play their pins nearly every week. Still just not 100% sure on what I want.
I'm in the East Bay in the Concord/Walnut Creek area. If anything ever comes of mind and fits the bill to a newcomer like me...please keep me in mind.
Thanks -Mike

I'd recommend WCS (World Cup Soccer). Great pin for the price and kids and inexperienced players love it. Lots of lastability - Easy to learn, tough to master.

Quoted from Gryphun:

Interesting market we are in these days.
Noticed several pins on craigslist SF (same collector) just increased his prices over 1 week period.

Yea apparently in California if a pin doesn't sell, you actually increase the price rather than reduce. Go figure.

So is the death of this thread near an end? Looks like people's LOCAL sale posts are getting moderated into oblivion. Where's the retarded emoticon...? Oh here it is.... « Spoiler! Click to reveal. G-R-E-E-D »

P.S that spoiler would have been cooler if I could actually post a picture in this thread!! Wtf pinside

#4447 3 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Well, no more public pictures...no biggie. If you're interested in someone's game, PM and then exchange pics by email.

The problem is that some people have posted a game for sale and a moderator has removed the post completely so you won't know there's a pin for sale locally unless you post it to the public in the market place.

#4461 3 years ago
Quoted from rotordave:

I can't really see the issue.
If you have a pin for sale, post:
Selling my Xenon pin, mint condition, looking for $3000. Pm me for photos.
Done. No fee. No crisis.
rd

Quoted from RTS:

Exactly.
I'm in the minority. I hate the pics in this thread.
They can take up so much space scrolling down when I have no interest in a particular game.
Save the pics for those who respond and send pics (or a link to pics) directly.

The issue is that moderators are deleting posts when people do it like this. I know 2 people who have posted a game for sale locally that had it deleted and then scolded by the moderator. Luckily, ive been in the market for a pin and checking the thread every 30 minutes and one of the ones that got deleted was a WOZ and was quick to contact the seller. In fact, I Picked it up today! But, had i not seen his post in this local thread and he was forced to put a market ad, we would not have worked out a deal. He would have listed it higher to cover fee's and i would have just stuck to a shipped NIB WOZ which was my original plan until he posted in this thread. Just not good for us little guys and another method of pinflation corrupting the market.

#4467 3 years ago
Quoted from rotordave:

I just checked. The fee for selling a WOZ on Pinside is $35. Thirty five dollars.
If you are a paid up "supporter", it's only $26.50. Twenty six dollars. And 50c.
Half you guys spend that on lunch every day! I would say that $26.50 to put your machine in front of 35,000 keen pin buyers with no Craigslist shenanigans is pretty damn cheap!! In fact, on a say $7000 WOZ it represents a 0.0036 percent commission.
I honestly can't see what's the problem with that. I just sold a $2500 pin on NZs version of eBay and it cost me $100 plus commission.
rd

Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:

I generally try and let these discussions play out without my involvement. I am compelled to add my 2 (maybe three) cents here. If you all saw the other side of the coin & how difficult it is to run and continue to develope a site like this you may have a bit more understanding for the changes that were made to keep the site you frequent running. If the site helps you sell a machine to a member you can trust then what is the issue with the site getting a very small cut? I mean there are no ads running on the site, donations are voluntary, and there are mods that donate a ton of their time to help out but some are really trying to get around paying a small % of a sale that Pinside helped facilitate?
You can no longer sell pins on Pinside over the $3K mark without going through the market place and paying a small % (if it sells) to help the site keep moving forward. Sure there are ways to figure out how to be cheap and not contribute on a sale the site helped with but the staff is trying hard to get the new marketplace up and running. One in which buyers can review sellers so the community has a place to come and sell/buy with trusted parties. I know some will not agree with the change but please try to remain respectful to those that help keep the site running for your enjoyment.

You guys are right. And I've been procastinating on donating again. I did a long time ago. Anyway, I threw down a $35 donation cause I really wanted a WOZ and found a great one because of this thread. Had it been listed in the marketplace, I may not have gotten first dibs. But more importantly, the seller was kick ass! Pinsider 'CharlieX' aka Joe. Real good dude!

I've met a lot of cool people on pinside and this thread alone, I wish we all lived closer so we can flip and have a few beers more often. Anyway, thanks joe for the WOZ (we had a crazy, in a good way, time getting it down his stairs with a motorized stair climber dolly. A little hair raising but fun experience overall since nothing was damaged

...and the WOZ survived the trip home and is working perfectly!

#4468 3 years ago

Btw; a majority of us in this thread and on pinside do not make money in this hobby. In fact, most of us lose a few hundred on most sales/trades. A lot of us don't have 50+ game collections or money falling out our arses. Keeping it real with money and pins rotating amongst the community is what I've always liked about this hobby. Kind of like when O-din sold RBION to RobT, who sold it to me, which I eventually sold it back to O-din. Just an exchange of money to let us sort of 'borrow' the game from each other But I do understand the hobbys blown up and the big rollers have stepped in and to keep pinside rolling, robin and the mods gotta do their due justice to keep us happy.

Quoted from Rarehero:

I like it more than most people. It's fun for a while, so enjoy! If it wasn't for its fatal flaws, I'd probably still have it....like the gaddamn small sling holes - the sling switches bend back against them and give you unresponsive slings. Any time I bent them back, they'd be crappy within a couple games again. Also the endless Multiball once you get further into the game...once you're in Vs. Modes, it's all Multiball, all the time.

Didn't the new code somewhat address vs. modes?

#5303 2 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

I'm going to put my collection up for sale:
Iron Man original (HUO, I am second owner), heavily modded, custom powder coat, custom apron with flashers, toys, etc. (no color DMD) $6100
TWD Premium (pretty much stock) great HUO condition (original owner) $6100
The Hobbit LE (original owner) plastic protectors, LED light kit for rear and under apron. $7200
PM with any questions etc.

Robs IM is truly amazing in person; so much custom work and still looks like it just came out of the box.

Anyone who's bought from Rob knows he keeps his pins in immaculate condition. Buy with confidence.

EM's you'all say eh...... I actually played some EM's at expo and had a blast. We had a sweet $1 game going on Rocky, what a cool freakin game! Unfortunately it started acting all weird on us and we had to move on to another. Forgot what others we played, but sure was fun doing $1 games on em.

#5306 2 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Quite the opposite. The last thing I want to see outside of work is FG. It's just a flat out great game. The most Williams feeling Stern has built and one of Pat Lawlor's best. Great design, great unique main toy, great rules by Keith Johnson. It's highly rated by tournament players, casuals, and players in between. I think you're a little too against the game for reasons never quite explained...usually completely out of context & just to push my buttons for some reason.

I gotta agree. Id probably put FGY in my top 5 all sterns. Integration, layout, rules, and best mini pf in all of pinball not to mention the humor is unmatched vs any other pin out there. Such a great pin. I owned one for 4 years; got to play it again for the first time in a long time at expo, such a great pin even after all these years. So clever, so fun. Those who don't like it are just missing out; and Shrek doesn't count

#5316 2 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

I'm not getting out of the hobby.
Just downsizing even more, and going with less expensive pins to help fund upgrades for another hobby (Jeep). I do have an Aerosmith pro on order.

So let me see if I got this straight; you're trading a mint collector IM, a TWD PREM, and a hobbit - for 1 Aerosmith...PRO? wtf! I know you weren't drinking alcohol at expo. 420 Legal now? Must be it.

Just messing around, get that AS shipped overnight lets play!

#5332 2 years ago
Quoted from vicjw66:

Whoops. You may be onto something there. In 2007 code updates weren't on my radar as much as they are now. TWD didn't have Horde in it for well over a year. I used to leave post its on the game begging for an update to the code, and after about a year the operator finally did. He was an old time operator who didn't really know or care about code updates.
So I concede that FG may have had early code the whole time it was there. Certainly that would have an adverse effect on my opinion of the game. But, I still stand by my criticisms of the ramp and Stewie mini play-field.
Damn, now I'm going to have play that game again to find out. Ugh.
Louis is Lois' auto fill-in cousin.

Yea I'd have to say FGY has the most variety than any pin out there as far as call outs and sounds. Had that game for 4 years and it never got old and always made me chuckle. And, it seemed like I'd always hear a new call out on that game.

For Stevie pinball, there's a smaller ball you can put in the game that makes it play a little more fun; bouncier and faster.

I agree on the ramp, not the best ramp in the world, but not bad by any means either. Especially when you're doing the down south mode and hitting the monkey.

Rules are amazing for anyone who loves Keith's challenges. Tv wizard mode is attainable and a blast; the Stevie super jp is amazing to get - and his secret super jp is even more amazing. Beer can modes + evil monkey shots, fart + lard mb. Dude the game has it all. I'd definitely give it another chance.

Looks like I need to take a 60mile trip to ayce. Any ideas when is the best time for eating and playing pins? Is it family friendly for a 12yr old and 14yr old?

Not family friendly unfortunately if you want to play pinball. Kids aren't allowed in the gaming area cause it's considered a bar, 21+. That said, staff is awesome and welcoming. I always enjoy going just after lunch whether I eat or just play pins. The food is good, the pins are better

Quoted from SpamMusubi310:

When selling a machine, has anyone gotten contacted by someone who just so happens to sign up to Pinside the same day as posting and has no information in their profile?
Should I overly suspicious?

It does seem suspicious. If he picks it up and pays with cash, shouldn't be a problem. If he's asking to jump through hoops, I'd raise a flag.

Deal with confidence. Steve is a cool pinballer!

Thanks Steve! Sorry folks, this game is just too cool. I knew I shouldn't have played it tonight - I hate this hobby sometimes. Not listing and taking it down again. Sorry folks, we are fickle bunch when it comes to pinball...at least, I am

I have a TWD Pro for Sale in San Marcos. PM me if you'd like to chat about it. I've been looking to trade it +/- cash for a GOT but I'm willing to sell it to fund my purchase.

Sent you a pm. I have a real nice GOT and ready to shake things up and would love a TWD PRO. Hit me up.

If anyone else wants to trade for a GOT PRO, hit me up. Primarily looking for TWD PRO or Maybe a SW PRO.

I know both KPG and RVDV, and they are both great guys, but I think that they are BOTH cheap ass bastards. One is that way because he drives a McLaren. The other one is that way because he drives a Lambo. Two peas in a pod!

ROFL. And your avatar sums All that up in a nutshell.

We’re all good, he doesn’t seem like a bad guy
Either, just too sensative for Pinside
Must be the Mclaren he drives , needs every penny he can get for that payment
Must not tip at all thinking about that car payment each time
Just having fun KPG
Ps :your welcome to try my Lambo’s !!

We're all good! He didn't seem like a bad guy, just cheap. Business aside I'm sure he's not a bad dude.

Quoted from Buzz:

Just posted Chris fox's info in AZ thread for you. He's doing a trip this weekend but you would have to call now if it's not to late.

Thanks buzz. The buyer hasn't officially paid for the game so it would be a real leap of faith on my part if we tried to do it now. I'll call him and see if it's even conceivable. Thanks.

Not enough hobbit math rules for you?

#7050 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Hobbit isn’t math. It’s a cinematic mode based progression game, like LOTR. It has audio and video of all the characters and stories and draws you into its world. POTC has zero characters or stories despite having to pick from 40 characters. It lacks personally. Feels stale. Doesn’t make use of its multi movie license.

That’s why it’s awesome we have Ayce! Get to play sweet games in great shape at a fantastic location to find out what we like and don’t like.

Iron Maiden Premium: $7,500
so I keep my pins in the lobby of my day job, and some drama went down, so now I need to store or sell my machines. I freaking love this game but I just can't store all of them. So it's gotta go. Game is in perfect working condition. Pick-up only, any time of day. I'd like to get it out of here by this weekend if possible. I have a hydrolic cart here and can help you load it into your vehicle.
PM me if interested. Thanks!
- Adam

I don't want to sound rude or disrespectful, but if you really need to get it out before the weekend, you might want to bring your price below NIB pricing.

#7200 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

To be fair, you save on shipping &amp; a potential letter from the Use Tax board.

Very true. Good thing we have a local distributor now surfsidedetail that you can pick up a game at their location with warranty and stern/distributor support, and for less than what he’s asking for his OUO. I just bought my ACDC pro vault from them and they loaded it in my car, saved my back, and were fantastic. Very pleased with Evan and (crap forgot the other guys name, but he was the one who helped me and kicked butt loading it ).

These are the risks we take with buying modern pins; used (little to no support or pay for parts replacement) vs NIB (take a bigger hit to resell). At what price difference does a buyer say to themselves, id rather buy used and save xxx rather than go NIB? One is not better than the other, it’s just that everybody has their own price that they are ok with spending or even losing.

Quoted from Rarehero:

There's no math-chess. Just lots of modes...easy to understand how to start them &amp; what the goals within them are. Easy to understand goal-based completion of modes, multiballs, etc. Plays like an adventure.

I'm pretty sure you need a bachelor's in science to figure out the mode multiplier combinations in hobbit . Star Wars = shoot the green shot if you want it multiplied, otherwise it's not multiplied.

Wanted: somewhere to play. I’m in LA, technically Castaic through the end of the week. I need to get my pinball fix while I’m out here if anybody wants some company. Or if anybody has any suggestions where to play.

Where in LA are you? I think AYCE Gogi (Van Nuys) is the best place you can go for food and pinball. You don’t have to sit to eat, just order from the bar menu, grab a beer, and grub in the pinball area while you play

EDIT: the food is almost better than the pins. And they keep their games in top notch shape

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.
