I sold my AC/DC BIBLE to a guy in Ontario.
During shipping it was in a semi rollover.
The game is totalled.

Let's have a moment of silence for a great game lost

Probably just needs a fuse ....

Don't toss it, obviously. That's fixable for the right person.

#5 4 years ago

You can buff that right out, no biggy.

#6 4 years ago

Wonder if sent to Stern it could be redone with the cost going to the shipping carrier?

#7 4 years ago

Insured? Breaks my heart!

#8 4 years ago

I'd still buy it!

Hopefully the buyer had sufficient insurance and everything is settled fairly - I'm sure he is disappointed though.

How's the shooter lane?

Time for a little Dr. Guff's turd polish...

Just need some duct tape and some glue.

#12 4 years ago

Did the backglass shatter? Playfield damaged? If not, a new cab from Stern and it would be good as new.

#13 4 years ago

Looks like the majority of my machines.

#14 4 years ago

That's actually how mine look every time I ship with STI.
2 pins damaged, one flipped over on it's side, and property damage. Will never use them again.

#15 4 years ago

"It's just a flesh wound"

#16 4 years ago

That is heart breaking to see in that condition, hope you had insurance

#17 4 years ago

What happens to it now? There are some useful parts even if only to cut up for decoration.

#18 4 years ago

ouch.that sucks

#19 4 years ago

Just sickening man.....

#20 4 years ago

Who'd you ship it with? Man I hope he had it insured for enough.

#21 4 years ago

That makes the game a little more rare now,a semi rollover,that doesn't happen often either.

#22 4 years ago

Kinda sums up the future of the band from what I have heard.

#23 4 years ago

That's gonna leave a mark!

#24 4 years ago

Pity.
Wish I could take a crack at salvaging it.

First BIBLE restore thread

#26 4 years ago

the way it's wrapped up like that makes me wonder if they just gathered up as many pieces as they could find and jammed them together. I'd be curious to see it unwrapped.

#27 4 years ago

that really sucks.... feel bad for the buyer

#28 4 years ago

Doubt backglass survived that! I would totally buy it for the right price though!

#29 4 years ago

Remember to check the PINFAX or PINPROOF reports to make sure your slightly used machine does not have a 'Rebuilt Status"

Leg protectors hanging on for dear life...

Must have made a wrong turn onto the highway to hell. Jk. That really sucks.

#32 4 years ago

I hope it was well insured

Ok here's a few answers for you.
Shipped through Day & Ross,uninsured.
They do not insure used pinball machines.
Rolled in a ditch during a snowstorm in January.

Buyer was offered 2.00 bucks a pound.

He has a lawyer involved now,more than just simple neglect on the shippers part.

The head was severed from the body,wiring harnesses trashed,don't know what happened to the rest of the head.
Shooter lane had a small chip in the black

Who arranged shipping - you or the buyer? I'm assuming since the buyer was offered the compensation, the buyer arranged shipping.

That's gonna be a tough one for the buyer - there's a reason there is insurance, and this is it. You can't complain that something bad happened during shipment of anything, and then expect full compensation when there was no insurance. This is why you only ship something like this with a company that has insurance. Whether it rolled over in a ditch, or got skewered by a forklift, or it just got completely lost, it all comes down to the fine print of the payout value in the event of a total loss.

#35 4 years ago

I set it up,he paid to have it shipped.
He had the choice of finding someone to ship insured,couldn't find anyone to do it.

He might be covered for it on his homeowners insurance.
I haven't heard yet if he is.

Total value of the load was over a million,insurance company was holding everything until now.

#36 4 years ago

That is a travesty. How is the backglass?

#37 4 years ago

Man, am I glad my food hadn't arrived at the table, yet. That sucks.

#38 4 years ago

Never woulda happened if shipped on legs :p.

In all seriousness for US folks. www.collectinsure.com
Covers in transit.

#39 4 years ago

Now I know why they call this game BIBLE, for I'm sure he is praying he gets refunded in full despite not having insurance on the shipment.

What a dam shame.....

Well...that pretty much says it all...
It's trashed

I'm betting you can get a better deal on it now... shame!

What number is it?

#45 4 years ago

Perfect game to go out in style like this. Like the band on a drunken night.

#46 4 years ago

#181

You should have bought it turbo20lbs,it probably would still be around then.
Not sure what will happen to it yet,we are still trying to get the game and see the final condition.
Lots of parts were packed inside it as well,like the train topper,and original band set up.

Maybe the LCD mod survived,not likely though.
Invisaglass is gone in the pictures to,I'm guessing in a million pieces.

For you teekee,10,000.00

What's a BIB worth these days ?

#49 4 years ago
