Quoted from jwwhite15:
What is the "fun factor" of Hyperball? I have not played it but it looks like something the kids would really enjoy. Just looking for a little insight here, thanx.
You get to shoot a whole bunch of balls at targets to spell various things or knock them down in order..... I can see kids enjoying it....and gravitating to it over a normal pinball machine...
The game is louder than a typical pinball machine... its neat and a "different" addition to an established game room...
Think I am running out of room..
Have a Hulk that will be here soon too..
Hot line is the only one for sale in this pic...

Quoted from Aurich:
I'm probably going to take Karl's EBD, which means I'll be listing my Fireball II. Repainted cabinet, flawless backglass, playfield is pretty clean, no wear. Come by and play it. Moving center post, multiball, speech, drop targets, one of the more rare early Bally solid states, you know you want to help me make room.
I'll take more pics and document it but if you're interested let me know. $1300, but open to offers.
IIRC Ron @ PBL wants one, he apparently had one, sold it and Angie misses it...
Still have a Genie project for sale... can bundle other stuff like extra playfield, New BG resto glass, Pascal 4-1 board.
Playfield is 100% shopped with lots of new parts, flattened and polished plastics..
Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:
Data East has Standard DMD and their mini DMD. For example, Hook, ST2th have the narrow DMD panel. I need the Speaker Planel Plastic - Data East 545-5180-01
BAA has them for $30 but out of stock - http://bayareaamusements.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=MC-545-5180-01
Cant find any on ebay, marco...
Dunno if this site is legit or what...
Quoted from rotordave:
Guys, Arcade Expo needs volunteers to help get the machines up and running. I would be there every weekend if I was a local ...
I'm a little torn on the whole volunteering thing...
On one hand, its totally awesome that there is this great collection of games that is available for us to play, work on and take some pride in that you got it working...
On the other hand, they're getting free skilled labor... and then charging the public to come in and play games... its a business thats asking people to work for free(you may get free/reduced entrance fee).
I've been out there many times myself to help get games up and running... its A LOT of work... and before you know it, youve spent the day fixing 3 games...
Where does the line get drawn?
There isnt many similar places like this to compare...I know Ann Arbor has Clay to maintain their machines.. i dont know if they use volunteers there...
Quoted from rotordave:
I can see your point ... if they were pocketing $1,000,000 profit a year, I would agree with you.
But facts are, if the place isn't successful, it'll close the doors.
They are only allowed to run 3 (or 4?) events a year by the local council, due to the fact it doesn't have proper accessible facilities (aka handicapped toilets etc)
If John had the money to do that, he could open all the time and maybe it could sustain paying a permanent tech. That's what the place needs, someone working on wages to maintain everything.
But, chicken and egg ... no toilets, no regular opening hours. No volunteers now, no money to get the toilets to get the hours to pay the tech.
Hopefully enough people will go along and help out now, and in 10 years time you can tell your grandkids "hey, I helped build that place up..."
Maybe John could keep a roster of the helpers, and make them official "VIP Friends of Arcade Expo" or something, so their efforts are recognised with discounted events down the road.
Quoted from Aurich:
I hear you. But just some quick facts:
1) Anyone who is volunteering isn't paying to get in, and can bring a plus one.
2) Right now they're operating at a loss, the goal is just to get to the break even point, so that they can keep it sustained, and share the collection with everyone.
I get your points. But where else can you visit a collection like that? When we were out working last weekend we probably got 15 games back up and running. If more people could come out and help like that we'd make a serious dent in the work. And everyone would benefit from playing them.
I concur with your replies and am really thankful for all that John is doing for the Southern California Pinball community and just pinball in general. Its great that he hasnt turned in to a crotchety old man like Tim at the PHOF has.
Does anyone remember seeing a Playboy for sale for $2300 recently?(In Riverside IIRC)
I've got a couple of NEW sheets of Gottlieb widebody glass. This will only fit System 1 games Genie and Roller Disco(27.5" X 48.5").
Will not fit Gottlieb system 80 games (24-5/8" x 48-3/8) nor any Williams, Bally, etc etc games..
Make me an offer and no I wont ship
Genie for sale...
Has a pascal board in it.. Ive got the original glass or a brand new BGresto glass... Has a brand new: playfield glass, lane guide-plastics, flipper bats, rubber. Has leds in backbox and GI currently. Plastics have been flattened and polished with no broken pieces. It is 100% complete. The Backglass, apron, shooter lane guard are INCLUDED but not currently installed.
More pictures located here..(no facebook login required)
Will also consider trades for other Gottlieb System 1 games
Quoted from jaydee49:
Any suggestions on where I can get a custom sized playfield glass for my pitch & bat in the SF Bay Area? It's roughly 23 x 39.
Also, any recommendations in Bay Area for someone who repairs EM games affordably? Thanks in advance.
(if this isn't the proper thread let me know and I'll move it)
Your local glass shop for the glass - tempered, no bugs, and round the edges so it cant cut your hands

Selling my nice (not perfect) Simpsons Pinball Party. $4500. Full LED's, Sparky's TV mod, Side/blade vinyl decals, upgraded garage door coil, couch bracket installed--working 100%. Typical cab wear at start button and flipper buttons (has button protectors installed). Some wear at I/S hole and shooter lane. PM me for questions or pictures. Located in Central CA. Able to deliver to PAGG if a deal is struck. Would also trade for --Star Trek Pro/Premium +-cash.
Damn.. that makes 3 TSPP for sale in California
Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:
$4.5k for my TSPP. Clean playfield, but some cab wear by the buttons. Coin-Taker LED's, new garage door decal, some new plastics. Beer mod, radioactive iodized balls, colorDMD, Pinnovators headphone jacks. All toys in great shape. Brand new itchy and scratchy.
Quoted from TheOnlyest:
That's that clown in Fullerton, that's what he does, he flips pins at outrageous prices. He also advertises them here on Pinside in the market, but they are never linked to a forum post, assumably hoping that the guy he lowballed won't see it. He also pollutes CL Las Vegas with his ads. The pinball community here in Vegas would like to run into him in a dark alley one day.
Careful, what you say, this guy is also on Pinside
Quoted from TheOnlyest:
lol, i'm well aware of that, and I calls em like I sees em! Until he gets real about pricing, his greed is a cancer to my 25-year hobby! Even though he probably never gets his asking price for those games, he's still part of the problem that has driven prices beyond their actual value for quite a while now, and many of us "regular-Joe's" and getting priced out! And yes i'm pissed about it, and I don't give a damn if he knows it!
I agree in that his prices are full retail that are unrealistic to most of us. The reality is people are out there that overpay for games and dont care or dont know.
I had a customer that paid 5k shipped for a DESW, with a broken ramp, dirty as hell playfield, broken plastics and a myriad of other problems. I told him he got ripped and to get his money back... he didnt care and didnt mind paying me a good amount to fix all of the problems.
When we are buying we all want our games cheap as possible. When we sell, we all want the most money we can get. The flippers dont mind holding on to games to get their asking prices or close to it..
Quoted from BenetBoy78:
Any of you folks have a reputable powder coat company to recommend for some pinball rails, hinges and doors? California, Arizona, Nevada, wherever, just needs to be a dust free, high quality control, shop. Willing to pay for craftsmanship level work. Much appreciated, Mike V.
Embee all the way..
Quoted from pin-head:
I just wanted to drop in and say "hi", and see if anyone has a pin or two that would get me started. This seems to be the most "local" to Las Vegas, and from my research on here, it seems like the best way to get started is to buy from a friendly pinsider, as opposed to taking the craigslist gamble, even though I................

Talk with Adam when hes free. Hes a good guy and may or may not have a game he could sell to you. Hes located just down the street from the PHOF.
Quoted from Adams:
Posted a wanted ad yesterday, but thought I would try here too:
Convinced my wife we should get a pinball machine and now I want to buy one before she can change her mind.
I'm looking for a MMR (LE or Standard). I'm in the SF Bay area, but willing to drive a bit to pick up (or have shipped)
Don has a new one in stock(last time i spoke with him)

Quoted from greenhornet:
appears they finally reopened. i believe their previous location was zoned industrial, so they had to relocate. not sure how others feel, but $10/hr seems a bit steep, especially for an accomplished player. on a recent trip to Phoenix got to spend time at http://www.starfightersarcade.com. Similar type setup - 30 pins with ~80 arcades - and it was $10/day for the entire four hours they were open.
I dont know anyone nor am I affiliated with Retrovolt. Retrovolt isnt trying to exclude accomplished pinball players, but its not trying to lure them in either... Retrovolt along with other hourly pay to play places(Neon Retro, etc) operate for people that want to come in for a couple hours and play as many games as possible.... Its a great value to spend $10 for an hour of entertainment... now to most everyone on pinside, yeah its not the best value because we can play 10 minute games on 1 credit.....
Now that that is clear... you should still go to Retrovolt... why? because it supports the whole pinball ecosystem.. so find some friends that may not be as deep in to pinball and go and show them why its so great... What is great about the hourly system is that they dont have to keep pumping quarters in the games to learn...
Quoted from Aurich:
If anyone has a line on a cheap, broken early solid state lemme know. Broken electronics, trashed playfield, flaked backglass, shitty theme, I just want something to tinker with for cheap.
Not in a rush, keep me in mind if you're in SoCal and you come across some garbage no one would usually want.
Ive got a mostly complete playboy playfield
Contemplating selling a few games...
