I just unloaded a great LotrLE and SM. My first sales of any pin.

I've adopted a one pin in, one pin out mandate with AliensLE, GBLE and RZ coming.

Just don't have time to play em all, but I love em all!

As much as I love the other two, I almost let AC/DC go out the door!

I'm back in love with that pin. WTF was I thinking?

My biggest sale regret was my first Roadshow. It was like losing two of your closest friends to a guy with more money than you...

Just this one.

Dang, where did that Charlie's Angels go. That's a beauty and a classic.

Theatre of Magic. I miss it a lot, it went to pay for better things but it was a lot of fun.

You didn't really sell that Charlie's Angels did you JD? I know you looked for that for a LOOOONG time.

That was a neat game Tom, and those chicks were pretty hot as well but not as hot as the Angels.

The game went out on the west coast area I'm sorry to say.

Yes I did sell it. After a 12 year search and having owned it for 6 years it was time to cut it loose to someone else but I still miss it every day. And the icing on the cake was that it was serial number one.

Wow, that's incredible. #1 Growing up with the Angels that's so cool!

Traded my first pin I bought a POTC. About a year later I got another.

#18 3 years ago

The Gottlieb system 1 classic Countdown.

#19 3 years ago

TOTAN for $3200, TAF for $2800, TOM for 4k, of course that was market value at the time but damn it stings now.

#20 3 years ago

Afm due to State mandated furloughs had to put food on the table but im currently saving for another.

#22 3 years ago

Night moves!

#23 3 years ago

I traded my "EATPM" plus $2000 for a really nice shopped Williams "IJ". I don't like to get rid of any games. It was the only way I was going to get the "IJ". I hadn't even restored or played my Elvira. Just bought a bunch of parts for her.

#24 3 years ago

Indy 500. Didn't realize how much I liked it until I didn't have it any more.

#25 3 years ago

Roadshow

#26 3 years ago

sell, what is that?

I rarely sell, but the one I miss the most is Roadshow. Such a fun layout and fun to shoot game.

#27 3 years ago

Mousin Around

#28 3 years ago

None yet. We have managed to hang on to all of them but have run out of room to put them in. I have made a deal with my wife that after GBLE, we will sell two to buy one. Lets see how that goes!

#29 3 years ago

Scared Stiff. Was before LEDs (which I think make this game look amazing), and when kids were at an age where all the innuendo was a bit questionable. Oh well. At least I have easy access to a couple of them here in P'Burgh.

#30 3 years ago

Surf Champ. Still kind of miss that one, and it's been gone for awhile now.

#31 3 years ago

NBA, not very many of them.

#32 3 years ago

My first game I bought TZ.
I sold it to a friend and I still help maintain it and it plays better than the one I replaced it with.

#33 3 years ago

None.

Once they're gone, they're gone. Game over. Always a relief to get rid of those I'm tired of.

#34 3 years ago

Congo..... while it was a great trade, I missed it a lot. Figured that out about a week after it was gone. Not exactly an easy game to find now.

Runners up are Dirty Harry, SMB, Alien Poker, and WPT

Happy to say all five of those games are back in my collection

#35 3 years ago

CV, AFM, TZ, and TOM. Divorce forced the sale a few years back and I won't pay today's price for them.

#36 3 years ago

I would say my ACDC premium and my NBAFB. Sold it to some low life a while ago....

#37 3 years ago

Just sold my IJ, that was harder than all the others in the past....such a beautiful machine

#41 3 years ago

I'd like to have all the games back I sold, the problem being there are others that I wanted more... I think if I sold any more my regret meter would nudge up higher.

#42 3 years ago

I kind of miss my Frontier. Also sometimes I'm nastalgic for the first pin I ever got.., F14 Tomcat. But then I play one again and think to myself... Oh yeah, thats why I sold it lol. Actually I think its just that the ones I find to play are so poorly maintained that they just don't play anything like mine did.

#43 3 years ago

Toss up between Totan and CFTBL.
Funhouse and Theatre of Magic run a close 3rd.
If I only had space and money to have kept them all.

#44 3 years ago
Quoted from Dayhuff:

and those chicks were pretty hot

Kate Jackson,yes please!

Regret letting Harlem go,my first pinball.

#45 3 years ago

Tron LE for me by far. I have a pro but miss Daft Punk multiball.

#46 3 years ago

SM, it took awhile to find another one as nice as it was but it was worth it.

#47 3 years ago

None... I had some great machines in awesome original condition and I will never gonna find anything compared to them on the market, but so what! This is a fun hobby- no time for melancholy and regret - have fun, there are so many wonderful machines out there which can be yours

#48 3 years ago

When you don't have he money and space and have to let something go, my biggest regret was selling our Super Mario Bros. machine and Simpsons' Pinball Party, not so much for me but to hear my two sons(who hardly played them ever) that they wished I did not sell those two. It is not like they were crying and hanging on to the legs of the machine, but it is a little sad to hear them now that they are a few years older missing them. One day I will replace them.........

#49 3 years ago

Judge Dredd, but I bought it back.

#50 3 years ago

My biggest regret was not buying a King Kong pin.
LOL
