    I forgot all about Doodle Bug! Nice looking Attack From Mars there, too! Wish I could have made the trip...

    #3 5 years ago

    what kind of prices are guys asking?

    #4 5 years ago

    BBH? what is the asking price?

    #5 5 years ago

    great selection of games!

    Who brought the genesis, tx, barbwire, and SG? any for sale?

    Someone has good tastes!

    #6 5 years ago

    I did not get prices today. I was only there for setup and had to do that quickly and just snapped a few photos for people.

    I will be there tomorrow and if anyone needs specific pricing, I can do my best to get that info for you.

    Thanks VERY much for photos and taking the time to upload and share!!!!
    It is really fun for those of us at home that wish we were there.

    #12 5 years ago

    Is that CV for sale?

    #13 5 years ago

    It was, but I don't remember the price.

    Chris

    #14 5 years ago

    I woulda bought that jokerz at that price. Too bad I cannot make it out.

    #15 5 years ago

    Wrath of Olympus WAS amazing IMHO. I was very impressed. Apparently the have a second prototype in the works with a couple of changes including a bash toy that rises from the playfield. I hope they do a run of these. I would like one.

    #16 5 years ago

    You guys crack me up - "Oh, oh, how much for that?" "How much is this?"

    Pity the guys posting pics!!!

    #17 5 years ago

    Great pics. I just came home from Pinfest. So many pins it's downright overwhelming! Some of my favorites from today: Taxi, TX Sector, Golden Arrow, Atlantis, Tommy, Road Kings, Mustang, and Congo.
    Thanks to everyone that brought pins and to the organizers. What a super event! Take a bow!

    I definitely noticed. Excellent from the front too.

    #27 5 years ago

    Thanks for the pics Chris! Friend that helps out with running the show said there was 254 free play machines and that was about at 1pm!

    She was just as excited to attend the show as I was and play all the games. She was bummed that Medieval Madness remake wasn't there and the original that is in the free play area has issues. Like not starting any multiball. She loves playing pins and working on them with me. She even came up with a terrific idea for our TFTC when we were browsing the vendors.

    #31 5 years ago

    Went Friday and the show was great. Hats off to the event organizers.
    Prices were hit or miss. Some good deals some high prices but all in all well worth the $17.
    If you missed it, plan on coming next year.
    Vendors were awesome and some really good deals

    #32 5 years ago

    Yup, it was fun. Had to tend the GRC booth for a while as they were my ride there. I was not expecting games to be priced that high. Almost no video games (was planning on picking one up). Pleasantly surprised to learn that Theatre of Magic playfields are on the way.

    Pity the guys posting pics!!!

    Chill Nate. This is a pinball info site. If you had a machine you were going to sell and didn't really know what they were going for a show like this could give you a very good example of what they are going for. Didn't seem like the op had a problem with passing useful information along so why do you have a problem??????????

    #37 5 years ago
    Quoted from scottc:

    BBH? what is the asking price?

    I think the BBH was in the mid $4k range.
    Not sure if that is what it sold for

    #38 5 years ago

    Thanks! are a lot of pins selling? I know last year was a little slow in sales compared to previous years.

    #39 5 years ago

    From what I saw Friday, there were a few sales for the better priced ones but most people were just enjoying playing the machines for free.

    #40 5 years ago

    Man, I know where I wish I was located....

    Next year, I'm headed for Pennsylvania.

    Quoted from dmacy:

    Thanks for the pics Chris! Friend that helps out with running the show said there was 254 free play machines and that was about at 1pm!

    Correction. Asked today and over 284 yesterday even with a few leaving early. Today seemed a little slow but we left around lunch time.

    #42 5 years ago
    Quoted from njg:

    It was $3800 if I remember correctly. Pretty sure most of the "deals" happened before the show. I was there at about 1pm Friday. The only one that struck me as a great deal was the AFM for $6500 ish. Everything else I was interested in was either too high, or average.

    #43 5 years ago

    Wow, I played two different AFMs, both were working great. If one of those was $6500, it was a great deal.

    Highlights of the show (game wise) were a truly mint Game Show, and the cosmetically perfect Taxi that I played in the tourney (sorry again for that lucky extra ball skill shot, lol).

    #44 5 years ago

    I went yesterday, got there around 12:30. no line. Just a great great time. My friend and I decided to walk around first to see everything. It took us 4 hrs. There was just machine after machine we had to stop and play. Really loved the barbwire machine, strange science, big game hunter, and star gate. I even enjoyed baywatch, but was happy the sounds and music were turned way down. Missed out on tales of the arabian nights, which i really wanted to play but just ran out of time. Same goes for lord of the rings. Didn't see near as many WOZ as last year.I don't know if jersey jack was even there. Saw 4 doctor whos. Got to play one a few times. I really want to love this PIN and would buy in the 1300-1500$ range, but over $2000, its just not $2000 worth of fun. Played mustang. Did not enjoy. Looked a long time at virtual pin machine. I would not buy one, but I can see the appeal. I also played dr who on the virtual game. Sounds were all there, but time expander is not 3D so it loses all appeal. But when you play avengers, you have figures that are continuously moving on the board, which is pretty cool. Saw a lot of PINs going out the door friday night. Really really pissed I did not buy the submarine game for $100. The periscope alone would be worth that but every repair guy i talked to cringed when I said monitor problems. Plus I had no more room since i took home metallica pro.
    First time I went into farmers market. Had a great meal and had to run back before they closed to buy pies and nuts.
    vendor area wasn't as full as last year. Some games were set to 5 balls, which made me feel guilty sometimes when someone was waiting. Rarely waited longer than a minute to play any game. I hate to say it, but barely played any ems. 9 hrs later my knees were killing me but I had a a blast. If only I could get marco to part with one of those metallica banners. I want to thank everyone who brought a game. Some really rare and cool ones I haven't played before. Rumor was next Stern PIN is led zepplin or walking dead.
    One thing really turned me off. Me and a friend were talking with speaker vendor. We were interested in his better systems and shaker motors. We were discussing the differences, when he excused himself and went over to another customer. So we walked away. I did buy that big creature from the black lagoon banner/application.
    Also had a chance to play avatar. Not as much fun as spiderman or new star trek. I would even prefer a stargate over it. wish list for next year, stargate,barbwire,24, or strange science.

    #45 5 years ago

    also, didn't see any POTc's. I did see popeye,flintstones,rocky and bullwinkle, and bone busters.

    #46 5 years ago

    Was the Swords of Fury for sale? I didn't see a card on it, so I walked away. If that was for sale, I would of bought it.

    #47 5 years ago

    Thanks for posting the pics.

    I had a great time. It has been way too long since my last A-Town show.

    Played a ton of fun games from some fantastic EM's to Americas Most Haunted. Saw the nicest Taxi I probably will ever see and sold a very nice Black Knight to a happy new owner(actually two BK's to two new owners really - and I have a nicer one still).

    There were lots of parts being sold and a whole bunch of games were sold from what I saw. This makes for a great show as people looking to buy and sell should have both been happy.

    #48 5 years ago

    Shot a quick video walkaround, mostly of the free play area. I missed shooting the front area, where Stern/Marco, WOOLY, and AMH were, along with several other vendors. Color balance is now fixed, so it is not as blue as the thumbnail.

    #49 5 years ago

    Anyone know if the Spectrum was for sale and did it sell?

    Thanks

    #50 5 years ago
    Quoted from solarvalue:

    Thanks

    There were two, and they were both still there as of 8pm Friday. Not sure if either was actually for sale.
