Middle of nowhere on that Barracora, near West Yellowstone. Not much local competition for it.

Based on that listing description, I'm assuming that's going to be a very over priced machine

Never mind the fact that it doesn’t boot and pf is blown out. Add in some nice sea-side metal corrosion.

What’s not to like ?

Yep. Whenever an ad says I don't have to sell, it means I can't afford to pry it out of their hands.

Hook for $1500

Seller detailed a lot of issues it has,, which I've quoted below:

"Hook pinball machine. We just picked this one up, but it has several problems that need to be addressed, and we are not willing to put any more money or time into it.

The bad:

- DMD is out gassing. It takes a while for it to warm up to the point where all lines are visible.
- Sound board is rebooting frequently. I suspect it’s a power supply problem as it looks like there is some suspect repair work that has been done in the past.
- Interlock switch on the coin door is not working, so high voltage to the coils is not being disabled as it should when coin door is opened.
- lockdown bar receiver is bent and should probably be replaced
- shooter assembly is missing an oilite bushing
- cabinet is a bit beat up. The bottoms of the sides specifically have some spots where the plywood is delaminating.
- someone cut one of the wires to the knocker coil, and the knocker is not working
- the lockdown bar and legs have been poorly spray painted over the original worn powder coating
- there’s holes in the front from a security bar that was probably over the coin door at some point
- the lock for the translite isn’t currently installed as the previous owner didn’t have the key
- some broken plastics
- low quality inner art blades which are ripping
- there may be other issues as well that we haven’t found yet.

The good:
- NVRAM installed, and I don’t see any battery corrosion on the MPU board
- LEDs throughout
- Playfield itself is in decent shape with minimal wear
- it comes with the latest 5.01 unofficial code from 2018
- flippers seem strong"

Can anyone pick this up for me and deliver to:
1. York PA show October 8-10th

3. Store it in climate control for me and until Pinfest in May

I can pay you something for your trouble.

*If the York show doesn't happen this year, I'll still travel up to central PA to pick up three pins I've already bought/committed to buying by the end of September, and that's when I could pick this up.

This is kind of depressing it is still available. Maybe people don't understand it's value/fun factor because it doesn't come up often and it's rare?

I messaged the seller three times (yesterday, this morning) since I'm here in Austin for a couple of days. No response. Don't think I would drive the 5 and a half hours from DFW otherwise for a project machine.

#17571 64 days ago

Yeah, anyone know what could be the deal with this Blackout? It was originally up for $350 a month or so ago, seller never responded to any emails. Relisted for $500 and still not responding to people?

This Embryon has a few cabinet and playfield flaws, so an easy cosmetic project. The ad has been up for a few weeks now and regularly getting updated and I'm very tempted but out of room. I'd say you can probably get it down a bit more possibly. Originally listed I think at $1800?

#17575 63 days ago
Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

Damn I wish!!! Wrong coast!

If it were local could see it, but its a 1k-1200 dollar game working. Needs an entire boardset. Unless you have the boards laying around its gonna be more than its worth to put together.

Some of us have spare boards kicking around for just these sort of projects

#17579 63 days ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

I have a few as well, but if the value of the parts + the cost of the project is greater than its value I pass.

Quoted from dung:

That depends upon how you're sourcing your boards and displays. I could probably outfit an empty early solid state backbox for around $100.

If you're basically doing full market value on boards and displays, then yeah, probably not worth it for most people.

Think you are misunderstanding. Could I sit on this, buy broken boards and fix it for less than what full market value of a boardset is worth? Sure.

Is it worth it? No. If the value of the parts needed to fix (even if I buy them for less than market value) plus the cost of the game is more than what it is worth working I wouldn't touch it. Now, if this were a 2k+ game and the missing parts plus the cost of the machine are less then yes.

Dealing with a BK2K and Freddy that are in this boat. Doing a lengthy roadtrip tomorrow picking up a checkpoint and f14 tomorrow that also fall into this category. Love major projects, but if at the end of the day its cheaper to buy over fix, its not worth it. All 4 are major projects, missing major parts with unknown electronics (or missing), but all of them I come out ahead in the end.

The way I see it, it's easy to slap in some boards and call it a day. Another game saved from the brink of being parted out.

However, if the game was missing significant game-specific playfield parts that are unobtanium...then I tend to pass unless I have a reasonably good idea of where I might be able to find them.

For that Gottlieb Circus specifically, lets say it's $400 for the game (or maybe offer a bit less since it's OBO), plus $100 for the boards, displays, and components I have on-hand, and $350 for new parts (flipper rebuild, drops, rubbers, etc), $200 for LEDs, a new piece of playfield glass for $50. The missing backglass does hurt a lot--$300 for a repro, but maybe less for a nice original. So, *if* it had the backglass, I'd still only have around $700 into with without any major work other than some board repairs and a shop job. Replacing the backglass maybe bumps it up another $100-$300 to $1000.

I think you could certainly get your money back on it, plus a few hundred. But yes, I get that there's not much meat on the bone here if your goal is to repair and flip.

Would I grab this particular title? Yes--it's one that rarely appears. If it was a more common title worth around the same amount, then probably not since I have other more interesting projects to work on.

Its not necessarily about flipping. The hours worked put me way below minium wage. Add in a 17 hour road trip (tomorrow) or a 23 hour road trip last week (drive time only) then its nutty. There is at least some reason behind it because it does make the hobby cheaper and its a form of entertainment. Picking something up that off the bat is a loser from a money perspective? No.

Well yeah, this particular game is well outside my area, but a similar game in my area within a couple hours of driving each way I'd certain go for.

For me, part of the fun is the hunt and repairing games. It's a hobby, not a full or part time gig. I don't really factor an hourly wage into it.

Quoted from FatPanda:

Been considering it. I'm just not in the mood to deal with that much playfield wear right now. If I had space, and it was a game I was actively looking for, I'd probably have already grabbed it.
