Quoted from Concretehardt:

Did Tacoma seem more crowded than normal to you guys last year? It was my first time and there were some long lines/wait times to play... I waited over 25 min to play CV and finally gave up

Not really. I liked the Seattle venue better. Hotels were cheaper & there were many more bars and restaurants within walking, err, staggering distance.

Looking for a backbox for a 1968 Gottlieb Royal guard wedgehead. Long shot, but who knows.....

Quoted from Pimp77:

Yeah, I've noticed that. Lots of location play but not many pins for sale.

& most of those for sale West coast are priced insanely... Take a look at pin prices back East, it's sick-making how cheap (& plentiful) they are.

Quoted from Jimmydred:

I am 100% sure the Williams Klondike pin for sale on CL here in Portland is bogus... I saw 3 other listings that were nearly identical in the description of the machine and price... These CL adds are in Dallas, Kansas City, Phoenix, and on the pinball classifieds. Its a scam!

Yeah, I saw that. Wonder what the scam is ?

Quoted from navajas:

Anyone know JP Poelzer / his games / his reputation? He had a Bow and Arrow for sale at the show for which I'd like more information.
Thanks!

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

#262 5 years ago
Quoted from navajas:

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.

#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.

Is this still available?

#712 4 years ago

The Humph is easy pickins - he came in dead last in the rookie tournament @ the PNW pin show in Tacoma this year. beat by by a girl of all things.

Yeah, so I got eliminated by a little kid, at least I was not last......

#727 4 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

And TWDLE is sold. I actually had the most fun playing it I've ever had when we played two player yesterday

Humph said he had to sneak TWDLE into his pinroom at midnight, don't think he has told the wife yet.

#734 4 years ago

Humph, you played that new pin yet?

#744 4 years ago
Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

Yeah, why not...I've really been enjoying a lot of the 80s pins.
I didn't think I would like a game without multiball, then skateball came along and I dig that.
I also enjoyed playing a friend's Mars Trek and Gold Strike.

#1001 4 years ago
Quoted from goldenboy232:

This will be my first time at a show this year. Are there often EM's for sale at these events? Sorry if that's a dumb question.

Always a few EM's for sale. Pretty much forget about getting a really good deal on one though.

#1007 4 years ago
Quoted from markmon:

Pinballbulbs will also be selling a beautiful tricked out pirates at the show this year.

awesome! the Humph with probably be taking up residence at your booth. That's his grail pin. Heard he was tempted to buy yours along with that TWD that he picked up from you a while back.

Yeah, I really liked that 2001 @ the show. Would definitely pick one up if it was available....

#1270 4 years ago
Quoted from V4Vendetta:

Hey Everyone,
1. Is it just my imagination or does eastcoast hoard pinball machines? I seemed to remember seeing abundant amount of pins for sale when I lived in DC compared to NW.
.

Pins are scarce here compared to back East, & pricing reflects that.

Quoted from goldenboy232:

I'm looking to buy an EM Gottlieb parts game from the 60s or 70s if anyone has an old one sitting around collecting dust. Thanks!

I find it really difficult to part one out. Bought that Royal guard complete cabinet less head for $50, fully intending to part it......
but ended up not having the heart to do it... it was too nice. It's almost fully working now.... should have it done before next year I hope.

Quoted from goldenboy232:

EM guys, heads-up that I'm going to be posting my Gottlieb 1968 Fun Land wedgehead for sale soon to make way for an Atlantis project I've bought. The Fun Land was professionally tuned up / playfield restored by local guru Tim Meighan, so the game's in fantastic shape for its age (cabinet hasn't been restored). Plays great and the playfield looks really nice. Backglass has been sealed and is above-average but does have some flaking in two red areas. Repros are available of it if you wanted a perfect one, but this one is pretty good.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'm going to offer it for just what I have in it ($750) but wanted to let the guys on here know before I get around to posting it on Craigslist.
PM me if interested and I can send you some pics.

If Tim Meighan restored the playfield, I can attest that it is great - have seen & played some of his stuff at the NW pin show over the last few years. He does fantastic work!

100% in agreement with that. Bought my TWD LE from him Dec 2014 & played some of his pins there. They are all stellar as was the one I purchased. If I buy another pin I'm bringing my sleeping bag so I can play more of his collection!!

#1794 3 years ago
Quoted from goldenboy232:

Here's a post for EM collectors: A woman locally (Gig Harbor area) is selling a 1973 Gottlieb High Hand wedgehead pinball machine. I can get photos and will post soon. The glass appears to be in decent shape (better than most I've seen, with only a little flaking), maybe a 7/10. The playfield, too, is in decent shape and just needs a good cleaning and waxing.
The game is complete and plays but needs a good tune-up, and the cabinet is pretty beat-up (a collector would want to repaint it).
She's asking $600 for it but is negotiable to a point. If you're interested, let me know and I can pass along her email address.
Thanks guys,
Mark

Fun pin! The lower sling area can be wicked fast once you get the lower drop targets down.

Don't relish the idea, but will probably have to sell my RBION at $3450 (unless I knock out a wall & add on, hmmmm). Super nice & in excellent condition, HUO (as far as I know), and no playability issues -- everything working properly.
Local pickup. Cash only, no trades please.
PM if interested or want more info.

I can vouch for this machine, I have played it & it's in super nice condition. A+

Stopped at Humph's place last night & we broke in his new MET Premium. Played 'till 4am, drank more than a few whiskey's.

Quoted from jarch:

Update on TWD LE in my previous post:
My wife finds out I'm considering selling my TWD LE to pick-up the new GB Prem. "Why are you selling it? You love that one. Why don't you keep it and get the Ghostbusters one as your second pinball?" Problem solved.
That, my friends, is what I call true love I'm going to pull down the offer and just thought you might enjoy the story.

Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

If someone wants to transport the machine, I have my EBD Classic, that could be brought to the show, after I finish clear coating the cabinet. I just finished the full color repaint. I have decided after the restoration is finished, I am going to fold it up, and put it back in storage in the long term.

Cool. There has not been an EBD at the show in the last five years that I have been attending. My favorite pin!

Also in a different style I have a nice EM for sale, changing the line up a bit!
Aladdin's Castle, Bally EM
Very nice and fun 2 player Bally EM machine, pretty rare! Purchased straight from Sunny SoCal, cabinet is very solid with nice and bright color. Understandable amount of wear due to age. The playfield looks great, no real wear to the art. Back glass is as brand new, not a spot of flaking and very bright! The machine went through a nice tune up and ran without one issue during a 3 day long tournament. Asking $900
