I'm looking for a nice MB... any one in OR, WA or North CA have one for sale?
WC... If I buy a pin in Canada can I just drive up and pick it up? Is there special paperwork that needs filled out ect to bring it back to the US?
Quoted from pin-pimp:
cant sell the MB, that was a quest in itself. A rescue mission from from Homer Alaska. I saved my other MM(not the one pictured here) from a strip club in Alaska, shes a good one too but still smells like Hookers, cigs, Beer and shame when i pull the glass off ha ha. Took me 3 years to land that deal. It needs a PF swap, I got one here on standby. good times chasing down some of this. I enjoy the quest for pins and deals more than anything.
LOL an MM that smells like cigarette smoke, beer and ass? Awesome
I picked up an IM last night and I am loving it!
Anyone in Oregon want to split this deal with me? JJP has a sale going on - Standard Invisa Glass $295 per sheet but if you buy 1 you get 1 half off so if anyone wants 1 sheet I will buy the other it would be $221.50 + shipping which we could split.
Ok I hate to do it but I am working on a 2 pin purchase so I may have to cut one loose any one in the NW looking for STLE mine is mint with a few mods and low plays.. game # 718 if my purchase falls thru I will be taking this off the market.
Quoted from zucot:
Crossposting my CC for sale here. Concretehardt can vouch for me.
zucot is as solid as they come, Deal with confidence!
Ps. Thanks Zipp and back attcha.
I'm interested in your Tron LE but it is difficult to make an offer on a game like Tron which may or may not have $2k +-worth of mods on it. If you could pm me a list of mods done to the game or if no mods just pm me and say no mods I will shoot you an offer and assume mint HUO condition as I can drive to pay for and pick the game up.
Quoted from pinstersix:
As for the TRON LE, I don't know how you could figure there were 2k worth of mods for the LE. I have all the protectors installed, ramps, plastics and scoop hole. I have the sticker over the drop bank but not installed. I have a shaker motor not installed. I have the hallmark light cycles but not installed. I have all the parts to make an arcade using the toy from the Legacy movie, but I haven't yet, so obviously its not installed. I have the light up recognizer, but again, not installed. I like stock for the most part, but I collect the mods just in case, and add them as I have time. I don't see how this adds up to $2000 bucks though, even with them being not put in. There are only a couple of mods that I don't have that I know about, the Flynn sign and a topper. BFD, you could have still made me an offer assuming the game was mod-free.
Here is how it adds up to $2000 worth of mods on a Tron LE the OP of that thread sold his game because he took the time to give a thorough description.
Quoted from markmon:
My TRON LE has:
1) chrome coin door to match chrome package: $400
2) arcade mod: $225
3) led kit: $150
4) invisiglass: $300
5) light cycles wired in $80
6) multi light up recognizer $60
7) mirror blades $80
blue led dmd: $350
9) speaker replacement $100
10) shaker: $200
11) chrome shooter housing and ball $100
12) topper $150
13) pinbits plastic dress up kit $75
14) couple extra vehicles. $25
Assuming I didn't miss anything that's about $2300 in mods. There you go.
Yea but I can't remember his name. He is the guy who has been selling on Craigslist for years and his games are usually pictured with Cdx board in the background. Most all of his games are well routed!
Quoted from Humph:
Yep, that's the one, although I met up with someone else (Jerry?). Wasn't clear when I talked with a person on the phone that it was an operator selling the machine until I got there. Then saw the $4500 POTC (actually POS) & its JB weld repair. Who knows what else has been 'field fixed'. Never again for Amusement Unlimited -- wasn't amused.
Doesn't sound like that was a machine Jerry was selling, did you go to a residence to look at it? Sounds like Jamie was selling his own machine.
Ok River road is Jerrys shop, the pic in the add looked like it was in a private home. I have bought a few pins from Jerry and all of them are routed as he is an operator but he as always treated me well.
Pinnovaters external volume control/headphone jack
Flipper Fidelity back box speakers
Cliffy shooter lane protector (both sides and right side rail protector)
Sparky air ball deflector
And a few other things I am probably not thinking of right now
The only games I am looking for are AC/DC Luci or BIB, MB or BSM
Game is located in Eugene, OR
Local pickup or Shipping via NAVL is no problem
Pm me For more pics
Um hi and welcome to Pinside! If I hear of anything down here in Eugene I will let you know.
PS. I'm a huge fan of your avatar pic
I only remember seeing a few pins for sale at Tacoma show in 2013 I wonder if it will be about the same this year
Quoted from SadSack:
I still don't believe you guys sent that MG back. Is that one of the games monkey is storing for you? There was a ton of shady shit going down around the "reveal" at the tacoma show and I'm betting that machine never went back to Illinois. Who has a copy of the bill of lading for the shipment home? Did you pay for that or who did? You guys still have plenty to answer for.
Upvote me if you agree.
Sadsack you are way off base dude! Bill, PDX, Mark & the crew who all volunteered time and money to get that game up and working for the Tacoma show are some of the most solid guys in this hobby! JPOP ripped me off and Bill tried to step in and help. Things didn't work out but I am very grateful to Bill and the team for what they tried to do.
Quoted from markmon:
Want To borrow mine for a few weeks and keep your GoT? You can come pick it up today. I also have one in the shop that is in my way but plays great even though it looks crappy. You can borrow that for a longer time
Some of the best pinheads in the world live right here in the pacific NWest.
Quoted from bkaelin:
Well, I guess I am not a "serious collector". Actually, I am just a nice, honest person who is a long time pinball enthusiast. I am also a working professional with a family who enjoys meeting other enthusiasts and often ends up trading, buying and selling games with the friends I encounter.
I am sorry if demands within my personal life have negatively impacted anyone here, and I am sorry if I wasted anyone's time by not replying to inquiries in a timely fashion. I've just been very busy with ordinary life...work, kids, school.....like many other folks, and I wish all the best to everyone.
As a side note, my inquiry was really aimed at local folks who might be interested, which I figured was ok.
So if anyone is interested, feel free to contact me.
I cringed when I saw your post because you are local to me and I love Tron! I had to sell my last one to raise cash and now having just bought TWD I'm in no position to buy your game, but hopefully the stars will align one of these days and you and I can work a deal on a pin
Quoted from bkaelin:
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?
I wish Level Up would get a Hobbit, I would love to have a local machine I could play.
Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:
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.
I keep passing up documented HUO games that are highly overmodded, but that is not a necessity for acquisition of the title again.
Quoted from UvulaBob:
I'll have to take another look at Google maps. I didn't realize San Jose, CA was in the Pacific Northwest. I'll have to take the 20-hour round trip detour to hit up the Golden Gate Bridge the next time I'm in Portland.
I have driven to San Jose to pick up a pin.
Quoted from HighVoltage:
Would you do it again? Was it worth it? I sneak a peek at the Cali for sale thread wondering about going down sometimes...
I have made 2 trips to Cali for pins once for METLE & once for MM. The trip I made for METLE was awesome! I took the family and went and saw the redwoods and then looped down and grabbed METLE and bombed home.. It was an epic trip!
Saw that one, very nice but a little out of my budget
Quoted from Shoot_Again:
Even more off track would be to debate the PNW for an entire page and not have anything for buy sale or trade...
San Jose is looking a lot better now!!! Again glws
Excellent point! Face it guys there are not many pins for sale in our corner of the world.
Quoted from UvulaBob:
I know you're playing the part of the guy who steps into the middle of an argument and goes GUYS BE COOL HAVE A BEER AND BE COOL OK I HATE IT WHEN YOU GUYS FIGHT. But I'm going to assume your question isn't rhetorical.
If we're going to have a Pacific Northwest thread, then it makes sense that people posting in it would be, y'know, in or around the Pacific Northwest. San Jose isn't the Pacific Northwest. Hell, it's not even in the North Bay. So someone's willing to drive 14 hours each way to pick up a pin. Does that mean it's OK for someone from Florida to post in this thread? I mean, as long as someone is willing to drive a week straight in each direction, what's it matter right?
If we were to run the thread in Dude Mode where everyone is just cool and chill and "what are borders but lines on a map, man", then why have a PNW thread at all? Why not just have a single thread called "This Is The Thread Where We Buy And Sell Pinball Machines, Unencumbered By The Artificial Lines Of Demarcation Decided By A Group Of Guys At Rand McNally, Man"?
Quoted from Wiggy76:
Looking if anyone in our region is open to doing a trade deal for a Monster Bash. I'm open to trading my Cirqus Voltaire and The Addams Family for a good / excellent condition Monster Bash in the area if possible.
I'm up in the Vancouver Area of Canada. PM me if interested or any leads. I of course can send pictures once we establish contact!
Thanks in advance!
Dang Number.Johnny.five I would love to have that TWD Prem!
I’m on the road to rebuilding my pinball collection, thinking about an IMDN pro (and dreaming of getting a big Lebowski). anyone in Oregon have an IMDN pro they are thinking of selling?
I did but I sold it and most everything else a while back.. after I got diagnosed with a brain tumor last year I sold all but 1 game, I missed a lot of work and had to raise cash as bills were piling up. I am doing a lot better now and ready to slowly rebuild my small collection of games, it will take a while but I will get there.
PS. This is my old TBL
I think I sold it for $11,000 oh well at least I’m alive, someday I will get another TBL
Im looking to replace the IMDN LE I had to sell last year if you have one for sale let me know, I have MBr LE for possible trade or cash.
Quoted from pinmister:
Glad to see you back in the swing of things (;
I know Russell is trying to sell his LE-may reach out?
If I were to buy an Iron Maiden I would get Steve with Pinball Refinery to perform his magic on a Premium model. I think the art on the premium pops the most and I really like what Steve did with the Premium with blue powder-coating for trim, rails and ramps-again it is a work of art(masterpiece) and really pops. Iron Maiden Premium Pinball Refinery for the win......scroll down to second half of page:
I really am doing a lot better! I am full time back at work and even got a promotion.
That IMDN Refinery Prem looks amazing! I would take that over an LE, I am afraid to ask what it would cost though.
Quoted from Tuna_Delight:
Letting my super nice HUO Pinball Refinery Iron Man VE go:
I'm open to shipping if necessary and can blanket/cardboard/plastic wrap the game and strap it to a pallet for safe transport.
Dang I wish I had the cash to grab this from you!
