Fun couple of days!!! Worked out a deal for 21 pins. Never had this type of find in the 20 years I have been into pinball. All are available for sale and can be brought to Expo so if you are interested in any of these please send me a msg with your offer. I really haven't spent a lot of time with each game, so the description is not that great. They all need shopped and some have burnt GI connectors. Most will need some switches adjusted. These will clean up to nice examples except for the two bally playboys. They are still loaded so I really do not have more pics. I will get them home Tuesday night and I am leaving the next day for Expo.

Stern Playboy - Boots, plays with no issues that I saw

Data East Playboy - Boots, and tried to start a game, but didn't have any balls. No obvious board issues, some cracking on cab paint

Bally Playboy x2 - Games are complete but need work.

Waterworld - Boots and plays, has metal plate on front bottom of cab for some reason

Big Hurt - Boots and plays nice cab

Shaq Attaq - Boots and plays nice cab

Judge Dredd - Missing the board that has the batteries and dead world is taken apart. Has topper and is a mini project, nice cab

Flintstones - Boots and plays nice cab

Space Jam - Boots and plays flipper button wear

Terminator 2 - Boots and plays, some raised inserts, nice cab

Getaway - Boots, has acid dmg on board, wouldn't start a game

Fish Tales - Boots and plays, topper is there and works. one side is about 30% faded and front and other side look really nice

No Good Gophers - Boots and plays, slam ramp is busted and low wear on playfield. very nice cab

Williams Indiana Jones - Boots and plays, game would constantly cycle all balls during game play, I think this has some acid on the board but I can't remember, cab is 70% faded. Game reset during test, so may need the BR's replaced and Z connector removed

Rollercoaster Tycoon - Boots and plays. Not pictured, nice cab

Congo - Boots and plays, may have a HV issue. Not pictured nice cab

Champion Pub - boots and plays, nice cab. Not pictured

Elvis - boots and plays, some flipper button wear. Not pictured

Dirty Harry - boots to trough IO board failure msg. Not pictured

Party Zone - boots and plays, GI is out. Not pictured

Are these for sale or is this a silent auction?

#3 6 years ago

does this mean you will have a part soon?

#4 6 years ago

I might have to have another party soon. I just put 6 games on location so I have some room available. Gonna be a long winter working on these

#5 6 years ago

Wow. Perfect timing to find a motherload. Im just floored at all these cool pins. I would love to make you an offer on Congo but it probably wont make it back from Expo.

#6 6 years ago

Is the Gofers still available? Very interested in it, PM me with price please.

#7 6 years ago

Only taking games to Expo that have deals setup prior

#8 6 years ago

Ohhh, what to do now!

#9 6 years ago

What about the "I'll drive to Grimes for the right deal deals?"

#11 6 years ago

Nice find! Knowing these types of finds/titles are still buried and waiting to be discovered is what makes the thrill of the hunt sooo enjoyable!

#12 6 years ago

I got IJ in for service, cycling balls. I believe the board(s) in the ball trough need replacing. Yes nice find, my warehouse where I bought many loads of pins is off limits. They want to sell on ebay only!

Yeah! Prices!!! Where are the damn price police when you need them?

#14 6 years ago

PM Sent.

#15 6 years ago

Hey Chriz, Id be happy to shop out 2 pins for labor free if you are interested....

#17 6 years ago

Thanks for all the PM's on this load. I don't have enough time to go through them more before expo to answer your questions. I will go through them and respond to people who want to look at stuff after expo with more pics. They are still loaded and I am headed home today then leaving for expo the following day. I might bring NGG or Elvis to the hall. The only real project machines in the bunch are the 2 Bally playboys and the dread.

It's always so cool to see 'warehouse raid' pictures. I'd love to hear the back story, if you're OK with sharing (and I understand why some don't). Congrats!!!

#19 6 years ago

WHat was the final price? We know maddog14 quit at 20 grand while the seller was at 25. Did you pay the 25?

Maybe you even got them for 20 because the seller didn't like maddog's speed of transaction.

Just curious.

#20 6 years ago

The elvis has a flipper out on the upper playfield, unless you fixed that already

#21 6 years ago

BTW, my waterworld has that metal on the bottom as well. I think that was a security feature.

#22 6 years ago

I hope the ngg is set up in the hall I would love to see it.

#23 6 years ago

congrats!!! Great to see people finding games like this!

#24 6 years ago

deff interested in getaway. hope you have not left for expo yet?

#25 6 years ago

This raid better not have occurred in South Dakota!

______________________

So it looks like If he scored it for anywhere between 20-25k the OP will still walk with a cool 7k+ or a few games of their choosing. Congrats on getting these back out into the pin community to live once again!

#27 6 years ago

wow are those shopped prices? bored at work too!

Quoted from heni1977:

I would guess untouched prices and probably way off. I see a few off by more than $1k under.

#29 6 years ago

What worries me is The Getaway pin. its truly the only one i am interested in. And it has board damage, and

Quoted from Chrizg:Getaway - Boots, has acid dmg on board, wouldn't start a game

Which ones? Let us critique your valuations. I don't want to get in an argument, but when I look at this load, it appears that it has been cherry-picked.

The above is simply my take on pricing for routed games that have been sitting in a warehouse and will need to be completely stripped and rebuilt with possible board work needed as well. Nothing more, nothing less. And like I stated in the bottom of my previous post, I'm glad these pins are seeing the light of day again & congrats

#32 6 years ago

Wow Chris..amazing, how did i miss this thread a couple days ago. Nice job. I want that T2!

#34 6 years ago

I hope you give people local to you first chance to buy. Sometimes it's hard to find fair pins and fair prices in Iowa

Haha! Try living in California! Everything here gets a 20% bump in price for some reason.

#36 6 years ago
Quoted from Nibbles:

Is the Gofers still available?

That game is fun to play. Never understood why everyone says it is No Good.
You noted fade on the Indiana Jones cabinet. Looks like it sat out in the hot sun of the desert too long.
But that is a heck of a group find of pins!

Are you worried that it might Get Away?

They might be saying it is No Good Gofers. You left out the best part.

#40 6 years ago

Who says NGG is no good? News to me.

#41 6 years ago

I think he was being funny. About it being "no good" at least i hope

#42 6 years ago

Awesome score! If pins could smile, I bet all of these are...

Thanks for all the interest in these games. I am looking forward to getting these cleaned up and distributed back into the pinball community. I think I may have posted them to early with little information which is my fault, but I wanted to take advantage of Expo since it brings so many people together that may be looking for some new titles. Plus, I was pretty excited as this type of deal is pretty rare.

Assumptions are being made on these games which will happen with little info . They are not heavy routed machines from a Op's warehouse. They are from a collector/bar owner who has been into pinball since he was 14 and had them in his bar that was open 6-7 months a year with 3 month's of them being busy months. They seem to have been taken care and rotated in and out as they developed small issues. They are waaay above average condition with a few exceptions. The couple of machines with acid dmg shouldn't be an issue. It will either be repaired by coin-op cauldron or replaced with the rottendog replacement board.

Most of the offers I have received are even under the prices that fattrain posted as a guess. I wanted to take some to expo to sell, but I just don't have the time that I thought I would. Heck, I haven't even unloaded the truck yet, and I am leaving tomorrow for expo, so just not enough time. I am going to try to take NGG, but not sure yet. I will work through the PM's and respond to what I can, when I can.

Just down on my pinball luck and cranky. Talking out my ass.

hahaha thats a knee slaper. and yes it could Getaway if im not fast enough littlecami

#46 6 years ago

Thanks for the heads up on the games. I am super interested in Getaway as it was one of my favorite machines as a kid. I am a hobbiest in this and do not plan on selling the game. i would like to get the game before any shopping out has been done to it. Since i like to do the work myself and love to learn about the workings of the pins. Please hit me up in the near future about this.

Bump .. Just wondering when I can check out your games

#48 5 years ago

I'm interested in Fish Tales if it's still available and I'm the same way as Heni1977...I prefer to shop my own games.
