I agree 100% Or at least if you want to get into "he said - she said" debate just start a new post. One transaction between two people seems to be taking up a lot of space no one really cares to keep reading about.

Quoted from cait001:

just hold in start for a few seconds and it will result to player 1, ball 1, single player game.

Not on older games, or could have been disabled on newer

I'll get this back on track. Anybody know any good hotels to stay at?

It was a good show, and Friday was definitely busier than Saturday. I can't list everyone I ran into, a ton of Pinsiders this year. Good to meet a few of you that I've never met in person before. And thanks to everyone who checked out the Vampire and posted comments about it. Much appreciated.

Heard the Ramada had a petting zoo....Guess the "more of a shelter than a hotel" comment from TripAdvisor was on point, lol...

#1206 1 year ago

My wife said HELL NO to the Ramada. Her corporate HQ is in Allentown and she knows the in and outs of the area and that the Ramada is to be avoided. The Holiday Inn Express across from Dorney Park is very nice and conveniently located only 4 miles away from the fairgrounds.

This was my favorite sign of the show.

Quoted from robgo777:

Ok, so now for the REAL story of what happened with this deal. Prior to the show I responded to mcandrew's post about his Atlantis, see post #821 of this thread. According to the post the game is "Restored" and is missing the submarine. I contacted him and told him that "if the machine is in the condition you claim it to be, then I will take it". I was the one who actually offered up the $100 paypal deposit. He accepted and we spoke briefly over the phone where he confirmed the machine's condition and talked logistics. I told him I would be at the show on Friday and Saturday as one of the vendors and that I would pick it up from his friend.
Fast forward to Friday morning. My wife and I were one of the vendors selling off some machines and various pinball parts etc (she was the cute tiny one that is always smiling). We arrived at around 9am to start setting up our booth. It was crazy from the get go, as any other vendor there that day could agree. It wasn't until later on that afternoon that I managed to sneak away to go try and find the machine to check it out. I wasn't able to find it, and mcandrew mentioned that it had moved spots. I got called back to my booth and was really just tied up until the end of the day when they kicked us out at 9pm.
The next morning was a lot slower so I finally managed to find this machine over at one of the flea market vendors. It was wrapped up and standing on it's back. There wasn't anyone around the area, so I took a few minutes to look the machine over. There was visible water damage on the bottom of the machine.. red flag #1. The legs that were next to the machine were in terrible shape and rusted over, red flag #2. Once I finally managed to find the young man who was currently in care of the machine I asked if we could set it up so that I could test it out. He was pretty reluctant to do so... red flag #3. Finally he wheeled it over to another booth to see about setting it up. I asked him if he had some wrap so that we could fold down the backbox after I got done testing it and he said he didn't. So before I went any further I wanted to go see if I could secure some. I told him I would be back.
I got called back to my booth to tend to some more customers and such as it was starting to get busy again. While I brought some stretch film with me, I was running really low and I had a couple machines sold that I wanted to make sure I had enough to get them properly wrapped up for the buyers. Once they were taken care of I realized I had enough so I went back a couple times to find the machine back in the corner by itself and the young man was no where to be found. I would have also liked to bring it back to my own booth to set it up and test it out, especially now that I finally had some space cleared up to make room for it. So I went back to my booth and got busy again and at this point decided to contact mcandrew to let him now that I would be passing on the machine because I wasn't able to thoroughly test it out (this was 10am on Saturday BTW, not on Sunday as he posted). I suggested to him that he have his friend set it up so that people could play it and that it would surely sell for more than what he was originally asking.
Later on when things slowed down again I kept going back to check on the machine to see if it was ever set up. Of course it wasn't, just sitting in the corner next to some other junk. Had it been, then I would have tested it and still completed the purchase had everything checked out. I sent additional messages to mcandrew telling him the machine was still not set up and suggested he have is friend do so. Later on Saturday afternoon I checked in with him once again to ask if it had sold yet and he told me it had. I congratulated him on the sale and was glad to hear that he wouldn't run into a situation where he would have to get it shipped back to him. Had that been the case I was thinking of making another offer to buy the machine for a lower price for an "as is" transaction.
Long story short, the original deal was for a machine that was in a particular condition. I have never done business with this mcandrew fellow before so it would be delusional to think anybody would spend money on a machine from a stranger without testing it out first. For all I knew the machine didn't work and the boards were all missing or fried. The unfortunate thing is I really did want the machine, this wasn't a case where I just changed my mind or refused to buy it just because it couldn't be put back together. I have been in this hobby for 15 years and there are plenty of people who can attest to that fact that I am not that kind of guy. I would however apologize for not being able to get to the machine sooner on Friday, but like I said Friday was super nuts. My wife and I didn't even get to take a break to get a meal until around 6pm.
My suggestion though would be that before you go posting stuff all around a public forum about somebody, get your facts straight. To everyone who replied to this guy's post, interesting that none of you asked to hear the other side of the story. Since half of you are from the same area as him, its pretty obvious you are all friends. So I suppose that would be the reason you so quickly jumped on the bandwagon to label me as if I was some kind of world class scammer and major douchebag. Better yet, mcandrew, next time why don't you just handle things in private like a professional. It is something a classy person would do, rather than publicly bash another person over something as trivial as this event was. Sheesh... you would have thought I went to his house and stole 3 of his machines and kicked his dog on the way out.
ps... flynnibus.. I hope you enjoy that 3rd magnet mod I sold you. You seemed happy with the transaction and our interaction so I guess I am not that huge of a monster you have all made me out to be after all.

I have no idea who "mcandrew" is and I agree that if someone is calling out another pinsider than BOTH sides need to be heard. That being said, I'm not sure why you expect to receive a deposit back. In this industry, there is SO much room for what is "mint" vs "worn" - that's just the nature of the beast. However if you give money for someone to hold it for you and then you decide to back out, that's on you. Next time don't put a deposit down and go see the machine immediately otherwise you're holding up a potential sale. Sure it's a gamble but that's the name of the game.

We're talking $100 btw - I really think this is a no brainer case but unfortunately seller - you will likely lose due to PP policies.

Levi - I'm not sure why these two can't explain their case in a general thread called Pinfest 2018? I'm right there with you if this goes on for pages but I doubt it will. This thing needs to be breath a little bit and I'm sure that will be it. I say let these guys get their points out and move on.

By a landslide!

They really need to change the show hours.. it would be really awful if someone planned a trip thinking 4pm onward would be worth their trip.

Sorry you couldn't make the show. Right by the tournament bank there was an Alien! And it even seemed to be working most of the weekend!

$9K oBO - don't know if it sold.

Stayed at Comfort suites despite all of the problems faced last year. Had no issues, only complaint is the weak water pressure for the shower.

#1213 1 year ago

Allentown is the Wall Street of pinball shows. Do a deal, turn on your heels, do another. It’s a loss for the players however. Never seen a show with so many games pulled several hours before the end... and a Saturday evening, no less.

More like “Allentown Pinball Flea Market w/playable titles”... but still a good time. Will be back next year.

#1214 1 year ago

Had a great time at the show this year. The freeplay was packed with games and people. Got to play some of the newer titles and wow - 8 Iron Maiden's setup! That meant shorter lines to play - thanks!!

Shout out to my new American bud's.... Great to meet you guys and will look forward to seeing you next year!

tomdrum I can bring you more Canadian beer next time!
weatherbymag don't worry, I will have shrink wrap next year too buddy!
cjpins Thanks for the Moosehead and great to chat with your son Chris.
@Dr.Dave Nice chatting with you!

Too bad the Ramada got busted up by the po-po but we still managed to have a great time smuggling in our Yuengling's into the bar after the shut down and chatting with the Pin Sound dude from France.

Farmer's market was on point all weekend as usual. Bada Bing, Billy's Cheese steak pretzel wraps and fresh hot pretzels right out of the oven, Dan's BBQ Wing Sampler, NY Pickle - damn those were good!, Mink's licorice bag for the wife & kids, heck I even tried the Sushi and the Mediterranean place, it was all good!!!

Anyone up for some Dried Beef with cheese squares and garlic stuffed olives? LOL That combo made for some potent scents later!

Seeya next year! Can hardly wait!

Sorry, another hotel post, but the Renaissance was awesome. ..Very modern, clean, Everything was perfect... parking was free. Walked to Fegleys for an awesome dinner/beers....then to Benjamin's across from hotel for very nice outside bar, with blowjob bartenders (they didn't ruin it for us)....It's not just the show like some mention ("I don't know why all the hotel talk, after-party talk, bar talk etc") it's about the total Pinfest experience! I'm not local, so it's ten hrs of Driving (total) I'm going to hang out with good people, and have fun on my mini-escape from life.... Definitely enjoyed my hang time with the NE crew!

Every goddamn year I forget how slow the vietnamese booth is and end up waiting 25 minutes for some pork and crispy rolls. I'll probably do it again next year.

Current faves are the pot pie and BBQ wings at Dan's.

The show seemed to be a lot of fun. I'm sorry I missed it too. Next year I will plan on attending. Something tells me you'll be there too. Beer on me if so.

Seems like Iron Maiden was a big winner. It's been quiet on the Alice Cooper front though - wasn't that game there and if so what was the buzz? I know you have a pretty good finger on the pinball pulse.

#1218 1 year ago

I always forget how I hate driving around there. Want to make a left? Forget about it. You must go right to go left. Whoever came up with that should be publicly tarred and feathered.

I was pretty preoccupied with the tournament and moving my games around, and coordinating some deals for other folks. Bowen Kerins took an Alice Cooper home with him for the work he's doing on the project so that's all I got for you there.

Tons of Maidens and they were all getting heavy play!

I may not be Levi, but I did play ACNC. It looks drop dead gorgeous, the artwork on the playfield and cabinet looks fantastic. I really enjoyed the machine, and I am very close to pulling the trigger on one. It was a little hard to hear with everything going on at the show, but what I did hear sounded good. The flippers were a little weak due to low power at the show but the shots still felt good to me, they are tight though.

Was cheaper on Saturday. I don't think it sold. Everything was working, except Xeno head was turned off the whole weekend. You can still lock the balls and play normal, but it would not grab them. Some people that I played with, had no idea the head should grab the ball for locks hehe.

#1223 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I've never waited on line to play a game at Allentown in my life. There's usually dozens of unoccupied games at any given time.

Different strokes Levi. In the morning I was helping Pingraffix set up and once the show opened if I wanted to play the brand new titles I had to wait a few times. In this case it was for Star Wars which I had never run across before so my curiosity had me waiting.

spfxted not sure who you asked but the xenohead was disabled because of how they tend to break themselves if not closely monitored, and we weren't sure of the state of this games head as it was recently purchased and the heads are flaky buggers.

#1227 1 year ago

I had a great time this year as always. I got to meet and buy a Megatouch from pinball mike217. What a nice guy and a great deal. Anyone looking to do business with him in the future should have no worries.
Bought some mods from Matt at back alley creations. I have bought stuff from him in the past but this show seemed to die early on Saturday and things were slow enough I actually had a chance to bust his chops a little. then he ended up buying a little something from me great guy and very creative.
One of my favorite things about this hobby is all the cool people I get to meet. I got to hang out with some old friends and some new and each year the group seems to get bigger of like-minded people I want to share a drink with and hang out. Sure there are the weirdos and pompous asses (you know who you are ), but we are a pretty cool group of people when it comes down to it. Looking forward to pintastic next, see you all there.

#1231 1 year ago
Quoted from Crispin:

Yeah I had 2 or 3 people playing multiple games by themselves. The worst one was the guy playing all 4 players on the Star Wars in front of Cointaker. I was waiting behind him and watching the GOTG game going on next to him when I thought to myself this guy must be really good. I peek over his shoulder and realize I'm waiting for a 4 player game! I shot him a puzzled look and he said he just stumbled upon the 4 players already punched in. He instantly drained and left.

This happened to me twice, where I walked up to an available game and realized it had been started on 4 player and left mid game. Rather then resetting it, I just played it out and walked away afterwards. I'm sure someone may have spotted me and thought I had pushed in 4 players myself but that wasn't the case. Perhaps this happened to others as well?

Always a thing. The show is more a 'swap meet w/free play' than say shows like TPF you may be used to which are more like an exposition. Lots of different variations over the years to incentivize and keep games on the show floor. I think they seemed to have found a good balance as Friday the floor stayed pretty full, and Saturday the ranks were still very full. But come end of the day Saturday... it's going to be empty.

What was different this year IMO was the crowd level across the board on saturday.

I stayed at the Renaissance, it was a super nice hotel and got it for $90 with the priceline name your own price feature. SCORE

Quoted from delt31:

I was able to put up five games. I would say it's the best game from Spooky yet, at least IMO. I like the PF layout, and unlike some of the other games from them, like AMH that seems "empty", ACNC is jam packed and has a good amount of shots. Art package is spectacular, especially if you like horror-themed pins as I do. Hats off to Charlie and his crew. They did a good job on this one, I just wish I was more of an Alice Cooper fan.

The only downside playing in that type of atmosphere is that I didn't get a good grasp on the audio, callouts or music. Plus Chad had his damn Grand Lizard cranked all the way up, and I'm still hearing that music in my head. JK dude.

If anyone cares, the Capcom Airborne got 326 plays on Saturday.

My wife and I played ACNC and playing it reaffirmed to us that we just don't enjoy playing Spooky pinball machines. We actually never walked away from a Spooky game saying, "that was fun". I guess those games just aren't what we look for in a game, that's all.

Yep we feel the same way and acnc was no different... just not fun . Went in with high hopes of ordering one but it just wasnt that good or fun to shoot, much like rz imo.. Madien was fun and will b getting a premium.

Looks better than where I stayed the 2nd night because I decided the day before the show to extend my stay. 1st night at the wingate was great but I unfortunately chose the Knights Inn the 2nd night.

Quoted from delt31:

I played it a bunch of times, it was really fun and looks amazing. Lots of great shots, couldn't hear the callouts well and definitely noticed the flippers being a bit weak later in the day - may have been all day but I just didn't notice until later. It was hard to make the left ramp when needed but a little more power and it'd be no problem. That left scoop though! You know how fast the TNA scoop kicks out? This isn't much different except there's no flasher or anything to indicate if it's coming so a center drain is often the result unless a slap save can grab it. I had the best luck just flipping the right flipper a couple times when I knew it was coming so my timing would be right. If the tilt bob was in it, it was loose as hell so that at least helped.

Great to meet you too Flynn! Yes, we sold everything we really wanted. We didn't come back with any of the machines we brought to the show that that is the important thing!

Quoted from alexmogil:

Hey! I remember that booth. She was very nice. She tried to sell me a house! I bought a couple of your parts cases. I'm glad you brought those.

Yes, leave it to a real estate agent to try and sell houses at a pinball show! Great meeting you, enjoy the parts as I had no idea what else to do with them and it would have taken me a lifetime to try and sell each of them individually!
