Just sold a very nice demo man last week. I had LED OCD installed and it made the inserts look fantastic. The updated code is very good although I couldn't find the right shaker for it. PPS is supposed to sell a compatible shaker as soon as MMRs are out.

Thanks!

He owns the 8bit arcade. Never bought from him but he bought several games from me and other people at he show. Seemed like a real nice guy

I played that at the show. Fun game. With a little tune up that one could be a nice player.

I know fuck all about how an EM should feel. Can you let me know what you think needs done? I didn't have a camera with me, but my impression was that the playfield was in pretty great shape. You?

Flippers & pop bumpers felt like they could use rebuilding. Seems like they should have had a bit more zip....
Other than that I really liked it.

Looking to trade a very nice T3. Open to direct sale but would like to see what is available for trade.

This T3 is fully upgraded with LED’s and a Subwoofer. It sounds awesome! Some very minor small wear on the right side cabinet detail. It has been since covered with a mylar button protector so no additional wear has occurred. Also the furthest right column on the DMD is intermittent. Most players would not even notice even if they weren't looking. Does not affect gameplay at all and looks great!

Everything works well and the backbox RPG is in perfect shape and all plastics are cleaned and working. The game plays perfectly! Overall rating of about 8/10

Looking to trade my T3 for one the following in comparable shape(+/- cash on either side depending on title & condition):

Bram Stokers Dracula
Fish Tales
Johnny Mnemonic
High Speed 2: The Getaway
T2
Earthshaker
Demolition Man
Judge Dredd
Jurassic Park
Starship Troopers
The Shadow
Congo
Indy 500
Stargate
The Bride of Pinbot
GnR
Who Dunnit?

I would love one from this list depending on how much cash I would have to bring to the deal in addition to the T3:
Tron (my first and main choice)
Spider Man
Ripley’s Believe it or Not
Indy Jones
No Good Gofers
Family Guy
LOTR
X-Men

Can send pics or video of anything related to T3. If you are in the area, you are more than welcome to come by and play test. Can deliver within the Seattle/Portland area as well as pickup in the Everett area.

Also, have an MEI bill acceptor that will accept all new dollars and 5 dollar bills. If you have machines on location, this bill acceptor will be perfect for you! Will sell separately but would appreciate a bundle.

Thanks for the thoughts. I don't follow the EM market in the least, buy, $1200 seems like a premium price for such a common EM especially if it needs rebuilt pops and flippers. Am I wrong? I do remember the cabinet / playfield and backglass being pretty good though.

Admittedly, I didn't feel that as I played, but again, I don't have a good notion how EMs are supposed to feel. They all feel like they have squishy flippers to me!

#265 5 years ago

Yeah, keep in mind that West coast pricing is usually quite a bit more than anywhere else. $1200 seems high to me, I would think $700-900 would be closer. But then again, I have not been pricing these as of late.

#266 5 years ago

Of all the pins at the Tacoma show, I kept coming back to the Firepower. Anyone have one for under 850?

#267 5 years ago

Looks like my Dad is going to end up buying that Bow and Arrow. He talked with JP tonight and is heading over there Wednesday.

Thanks everyone!

#268 5 years ago

On the off chance this thread will live past the after show glow, my wants (that I could actually buy on short notice):

Starship Troopers (Steve said he's not selling the one at the show.)
World Cup '94
Demolition Man
Black Knight 2000

I have a very nice Space Shuttle. When I bought it I didn't really appreciate how nice the playfield and back glass are (cabinet ain't great though). I could conceivably sell / trade it, but I doubt it'd be worth enough to anyone to overcome the family ire I'd receive if I did so.

I would also be open to packaging more than one of the above, or a higher ticket game from my wish list, but I need to save the scratch for either a Most Haunted, Iron Man Vault or Predator.

Cheers PNW, and GO USMNT!

I know this is a buyer and seller thread, but does anyone have info on where I can rent a machine from on a long-term basis in Seattle? I've looked a few places up and have gotten less than awesome service at each of them.

I am surprised this would be a service that exists, especially at an economical rate. Most of us owners are really just renting our games when you look at things on a long enough horizon.

#272 5 years ago

I've been told by various business owners with pins that they rent them from one place or another. Maybe the people I'm talking to don't understand the definition of the word "rent" when they tell me that they're renting them.

It's possible that nobody really does what I'm looking for. That is to say, offers to put a machine in a place if I pay that person X dollars a month.

#273 5 years ago

There is a busniess here in california called All You Can Arcade that does that very thing with arcade machines. Last time i talked to him he said he was going to do the same for pinball, maybe google him and give him a call to see if that side of his business is up and running.

#274 5 years ago

There are several companies that compete to route/rent pins in SF and the greater bay area. I would expect the same in Seattle and other large metro areas.

That makes sense to me, but how much would you charger per month for potentially say 6 months?

Not $500 per 12 hours, but something a consumer is willing to pay is probably not worth my time to come in for emergency repairs like "the ball is stuck on the balrog" or "a light went out".

I would also need insurance, possibly beyond the normal liability insurance for injury? Can you imagine a smoked coil burning all day while a person left their game on "just because". Mmmm... electronic smoke smell all over the house

Plus you could cause damage schlepping the game in and out of the house, and they can damage their house (primarily flooring) or the game moving it themselves. And obviously the game could get "lost" and the client could move etc...

Add that all up and the amount I would have to charge per month for a game like LoTR would make NOT just purchasing it yourself seem crazy after 3-4 months.

I can at least see arcade cabs being more reasonable due to being cheaper and having less stuff to break / smoke out.

Basically for all the same reasons that pinball lost to arcades in the early 80's.

I helped unload that Bow and Arrow from JP today into my Dad's house. It's a log house. Haha. It looks so cool up against the wall. It's beautiful, the back glass seems near perfect. Really cool.

Anyway, something's not working right. I know JP gave my Dad a 90 day warranty, but I thought I'd check with you guys first. The game only recognizes ball out sporadically. So, for instance, during a two player game it will often go something like, (Ball One) 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd, (Ball Two) 1st, 1st, 2nd, etc...

I don't know anything about these, I had to hustle back to soccer to pick up the boy, and my Dad had to bust ass back to Seattle, so I didn't have a chance to look under the hood. It sounds like (hopefully) just a switch adjustment. The ball feeds regardless, even when it hitches on the player, so I'm guessing they're different switches? The ball hits the trough, doesn't necessarily register the player swap, but then feeds the ball?

Thoughts?

#292 5 years ago

Check your ball count stepper & maybe the shooter lane switch.

Great game, priced right. I'd buy it if I didn't have one already...my cabinet is faded some though, yours is nice.

#297 5 years ago

WTB Flash Gordon Players condition or better would like it 100% working.

#299 5 years ago

I have a Stern Stars Project pin for sale. It is over all in clean shape, the cabinet looks like it has been repaited at some point however. The game powers on, gi lights come on, but no displays light up. The boards over all look clean, and the playfield also looks nice, just needs to be wiped down.

Im not sure all it needs. I need to make some room in my garage and just don't have the time to take on this machine at this point. Would like 300 for the pin. I will get some pix posted up this weekend.
