Quoted from PoMC:

Heh, I didn't realize that was you posting. Found it odd someone else was looking for a Big Hurt within a week.

I too am looking for a Big Hurt!

I'll be bringing this weird pink dude.
It'll be in the free play area (for Friday at least)

That's an interesting looking game!

#454 2 years ago

What the hell IS it??....and is it for sale?

#455 2 years ago

Bao! That's Interflip's Dragon, nice! And yeah: for sale?

#456 2 years ago
Quoted from PinZombie:

Yes, I'll throw a price on it at the show.
Just want to make sure it makes the free play floor on Friday.

It's a beautiful example. Only 12.5K plays! Most of my EMs are over 100K plays

#457 2 years ago
Quoted from Drano:

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm VERY excited to finally get to play one!

Anyone up for tilted Kilts Thursday or Friday ?

Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

Do you know if they have an outside seating area? I'm a cigar smoker.

#460 2 years ago

It looks like I'll likely be bringing a very nice Stern STARS in addition to the Interflip Dragon. It'll be for sale also.
Dragon may end up in the tournament... will have wait and see when I meet up with the organizers on site.

I'll post some shots of the Stars tomorrow.

Quoted from Alan_L:

I had no
Idea but I did call & found out ! Yes they have outdoor seating in warmer months

#462 2 years ago

Updated list of machines I can bring. Limited space in the van.

Buckaroo
Quick Draw
Ice Revue
Abra Ca Dabra

Sold
Atlantis, so that needs a spot in the van.

Quoted from Alan_L:

I think they do have an outside seating area.

But do the HOTELS have outdoor seating areas?

#465 2 years ago
Quoted from yzfguy:

The bar attached to The Comfort Suites , LINKS, does have a patio with tables. I’ve rolled in late and peeked inside at some trashed folks doing Karaoke. The outside people were even more trashed . That is a 5 Star rating for me.

Are you selling these? Abra Ca Dabra price?

#469 2 years ago
Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

Love the tilted kilt. If we get to the show on Thursday than we'll definitely go there.

#470 2 years ago

another update

Atlantis sold, but needs a spot
Abra Ca Dabra spoken for

I’m trying to have 2 machines in free play for Friday and Saturday.

Quick Draw
Ice Revue
Buckaroo (maybe)
Big Shot

And working on an El Dorado with a Wade playfield swap. Not sure if I’ll have it finished by then.

Quoted from Slogan1111:

Are you selling these? Abra Ca Dabra price?

Yes I’ll be selling these titles, but still plan on having 2 in free play to support the show

#471 2 years ago
Quoted from yzfguy:

But do the HOTELS have outdoor seating areas?

I know that the Ramada has a covered gazebo outside the front door. I don't recall there being any seating inside of it but at least you'll be covered if it rains. I can't speak to any other local hotels.

#472 2 years ago

Most hotels usually have some sort of patio with chairs

#473 2 years ago

Reserved an old school BNB for the trip.

#474 2 years ago

Still looking for a Star Wars Pro by show time. Let me know if you have one or know of any leads.

Cointaker will have them new I would think or are you looking for used lower price

Trying to find a used one if possible.

#477 2 years ago

Ask Cointaker if they will have any floor sample deals. Maybe 500 plays on a NIB game and save some $.

Oh nice. OK thanks.

Does anyone at the show do boardwork while-u-wait? I have a couple of boards that need the GI header pins removed & new ones installed, might as well bring to the show rather than send out.

If borygard is there that would be a simple repair for him - if he has some down time give him a shout.

I've attended the last 2 years and there hasn't been anyone there performing board work.

#482 2 years ago
Quoted from jibmums:

Unfortunately, no. However, if you go to Pintastic in Sturbridge, MA in June/July, there is usually a repair booth there.

Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

I don't think he attends any of the northeast shows.

Quoted from djreddog:

There isn't a booth or anything but 2 years ago I had board work done by a certain gentleman whom offered up his services once I posted I needed help in one of these threads....I even offered him moolah and he declined it. They are out there....maybe someone will PM him to lend a hand.

If you bring the boards and the new pins I'm sure there are plenty of people there that could do it for you.

If no one else I can do it. I'm not quite as neat as the pros but I've done it for many of mine without problems

Well, not advertised board work.

I have all the parts, so if any board-workers see this and can tackle it at the show, please shoot me a PM. If not, I'll PM you before the show, zacaj.

I've done board work for people at the Allentown show. FREE plus cost of parts, and maybe a beer.

Does anyone have a Joust they would consider bringing to sell/trade, any condition?? I have a great lineup of games I can trade and/or pay a good cash price. Not pictured are Robocop, BTTF & Data East Time Machine.

Damn Jake that's a nice lineup/room! You just showed me that I'm missing a bar at the end of my lineup.

Thanks, you have a good lineup as well! I'm glad my wife decided she wanted a larger house before I got into this hobby.

Very nice. Just don't tell her what your collection's worth or she may make use of the icebox.

I might bring a Chicago Cubs pinball if I don't sell it before the show.

pinballstar - Are you going to have any Alice Cooper games in your booth this year??

#495 2 years ago

So the show doesn't open until noon on Friday? I thought it started Friday morning last year.

#496 2 years ago

I've seen your basement Chris....if you can fit a bar at the end of your lineup I'm buying you your first keg for it!

Quoted from Ivan1496:

As for Friday start, the last two years I have opened earlier than posted. It was raining pretty hard. There has been a significant line to get in on Friday. I'm not about make people stand in the rain if I can help it. Be advised! If its raining early doesn't mean you should show up at 10am and expect this. The vendors must be given time to finish their setup. I generally ask around to make sure we are ready before I open the doors. Regardless of weather, If the line is excessive I may also decide to open earlier than posted in an effort to control flow. Its easier on my staff and a safety consideration.

I offered to drive one down from Spooky and leave it with you (I have a full van on the way back but space on the way there). LMK
