Quoted from UvulaBob:

Is there anyone who can hook me up with a NIB Game of Thrones Pro? I could go to a place like The Pinball Company and pay 6000 bucks plus 400 shipping, but I wanted to see if anyone has a guy who knows a guy who can get it to me for less. Thanks!

I would get in contact with Colorado Game Exchange or Tilt Amuaements on their pricing.

#2202 3 years ago

CGE's out of stock until August. Bleh. I'll try Tilt in addition to the places other people recommended.

Yes, please do contact Trent at Tilt! Amusements.
He may have the machine in stock, but also should be able to offer a competitive price with FREE shipping.
Generally, he averages around $100-200 less than some of the other larger distributors (even including the free lift gate drop shipping option which many also offer), and is not as well known in the general internet circles, which is an advantage to pinball enthusiasts and operators that do know him. Those that use him regularly, can get additional discounts.
Keep in mind, he does not install things like shaker motors.
However, sometimes the offset does not make a huge difference when the are specials at other dealers.
It depends on timing and title.

Quoted from Ronnie1114:

How low? I have a friend with a bugs bunny in Middleton that hes looking to sell.

For my first one I'm trying to stay under $800 if possible, I know that's low. There is an electromechanical in Twin Falls that I may drive up to see, I can't remember the name of it off hand but I think they seller only wanted $500 for it. I've been kicking myself over missing out on a Gottlieb Buccaneer that the seller on craigslist only wanted $350 for, thanks!

#2206 3 years ago

There's that Globetrotters in Twin Falls for $999. I wonder if he'd drop the price a bit?

#2207 3 years ago
Quoted from iron00monkey:

I think that's the same guy with the other electromechanical. I think he own's an arcade up there or something. If I have a chance I may drive out Saturday. Quick question since I'm a noob, if I were to take the legs or back off would this fit inside of a minivan with all of the rear seats out? I've fit a full size Revolution X arcade game in, so I'm think it would but I am far from an expert. Thanks everyone!

There still are a number of EMs in Yakima between the $350-1000 available from a local collector I used know.
Several are very good titles.
All are functional, but I can no longer evaluate quality of the machines specifically, because I rarely travel to Central Washington these days.

#2209 3 years ago

I can easily fit a pin in the back of my wife's minivan. That's with the seats pushed forward, I don't have to take them out.

Quoted from Herm:

Have you tried Nitro? They are usually very competitive with pricing in the PNW

#2211 3 years ago

Is anyone driving back to Seattle area from the Rocky Mountain show this weekend and has room for a pin? I have an eye on a machine but can't make the show.

#2212 3 years ago

The problem with ordering from Nitro is you are going to pay an $150 US export fee unless you pick up in person. That is despite the game already being made in the US.
If you do call Nitro, ask for Don or Tom.

Yes, it will fit

This is incorrect. If the gamer is made in the US....and returning to the US...there is no export fee.

#2215 3 years ago
Quoted from FlipperFreak:

This is incorrect. If the gamer is made in the US....and returning to the US...there is no export fee.

I stand corrected.
Unfortunately, the US Customs are not so smart.
You are referring to brand new games that clearly have for example Stern boxes that are easily identifiable and the fact the proper documentation was on hand with clarity. Older games sometimes have issues, and diligence is required, that you so completely aware.
A dealer has to be "on their game".

I had a hard time justifying this to customs recently for a game that was not NIB, but was produced in Chicago, not Italy for example.
They would NOT let it through, even though, I have dealt with the system many times.
There was no way, I could properly show them without completely unwrapping the damn game.
I know the drill here.
I argued for two days with senior manager and various agents that did not know their own rules.
I ended up saying "$#@! it" and paid the $150, instead of it sitting at a loading dock, locked down.
I initiated a complaint with US Customs to have my money returned after providing photos of the manufacturing identification.
I also initiated a complaint to fire the morons that did not understand the regulations.
I actually have fought this battle before....and won, at least twice.
This is something buyers/owners should know as a collector when reimporting ANY GAMES.
I am not aware of any changes in US policy in this area either.

Back back on subject...

Good to hear that customers are not being borked for brand new games back through the PNW.
Maybe you can beat a price then for a NIB game I am considering, and if it is in stock.
Professional email sent via sales website, I have a feeling I am speaking to Tom.

#2216 3 years ago

Currently considering selling our Rob Zombie LE. has 14 plays. pm me for details

#2217 3 years ago

Need some buyers ! Heard word they are rounding up another order and need buyers for a shipment from Italy, bring more games to our region!

#2218 3 years ago

Any Boise area people have a classic Bally leg kicking around? 28 1/2", non-ribbed. I just need one.

I don't care about the condition, as long as it is not bent.

Thanks! - Scott

Thanks man!!!! I'm on my way to go get it right NOW.

#2226 3 years ago

Knew that would not last long, let us know if it's a Pro LED, seems like a great deal.

#2227 3 years ago

Dang missed again...

image_(resized).png

#2228 3 years ago

Yep, LED pro. They bought it new with Amazon prime. Not a scratch on it. Hasn't been played very much.

Thanks again for posting, Matt.

#2229 3 years ago

Nice pickup! That thing has to be perfect... or close.
If I had the cash I would have jumped on it then tried to trade it.
one day....

#2230 3 years ago

Good buy glad somebody on pinside snagged it.

Anyone in the Pacific Northwest or Northern California looking to sell or trade The Hobbit?
And BTW, any hobbits of any variety on location between Eugene and Portland?
cheers!

I wish Level Up would get a Hobbit, I would love to have a local machine I could play.

#2236 3 years ago

Feeling like scoring an EM?

Here's a pretty vague ad on Portland Craigslist.

Yeah, I saw that...kind of odd. Anyone know who it is and if the game itself is for sale?

Why not just call? It's Dustin, he has the retail store, and his selection of pins is changing regularly, so best to call him. I'm guessing he's suggesting he can get the Hobbit and Full Throttle if you want them. I doubt he has stock.

All of the pics are in his shop. I am guessing he grabbed a bunch of pic that included some he did not intend.

If you're passing through there's one on location at Apex in Portland.

I did send an inquiry email, but didn't hear back.

#2243 3 years ago

I was just curious if anyone has top notch EM for sale locally? I would like to add one to my lineup again. I miss bells and chimes from time to time.

Also MM price reduced $8500
AFM sold

#2244 3 years ago

Would part ways with a mint (previously installed for a bit) Helen Translite for $200 if anyone has been looking for one locally. $225 if I need to ship but prefer you just drop by... north seattle area.

#2245 3 years ago

Anyone have any interest in trading for a TSPP? It's a HUO that I pick up from Dustin a while back. I'm only interested in DMD pins at the moment. No real need to get rid of it but just wanted to see what's out there.

I would conduct consideration of purchase, but I don't do trades much anymore.
I would need to see the "Itchy and Scratchy" hole closely, as this gives me the assessment of the number of plays on the game, along with the playfield surface.
The basic photo shown with the glass is difficult to evaluate.

I keep passing up documented HUO games that are highly overmodded, but that is not a necessity for acquisition of the title again.
