***** SOLD Pending payment. Thanks for the interest. *****

I have a project Skateball for sale. Unlike other games listed as projects this one really fits the definition. $300/obo

I think all the boards are there, I'll double check tonight. Displays are all there. I have no idea of their condition. All the plastics & parts are there. Apron, rails, you name it. Playfield mechs look good. Playfield could be touched up or you can wait for CPR to run it.

Cab sucks. It was painted blue & I used the wrong stripper on one side. Duh. Stencils are available though. Backglass is perfect!

Quoted from rcbrown316:

this is a long thread. will there be NIB sales happening at the show?

Joe Newhart will be bringing all kinds of new stuff as always (thanks Joe!)

Cointaker will probably have some NIB games there as well. According to the vendor page JJP will be there as well so I guess you could pay them or pay Joe for a WOZ or Hobbit.

**** SOLD ****
Posting here and in the MD/DC/VA thread. Nice players Mars Trek for sale. Everything seems to work, needs to be played. Has old, dirty bulbs which should be replaced. Rubber rings are mostly new, new flipper coil or two. Classic double spinner action! $600/obo

If nobody buys it before hand it's going into free play at the show.

Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

High Speed is sold/pending pickup at Allentown.
Haunted House is pending until I hear back from someone that has been looking for one/pm'ed first.
for sale- 1980 Gottlieb Counterforce (widebody)
Game works and plays great, new remote battery holder installed, playfield is in good condition, backglass is very good for this title, cabinet very good. Nice playing pin, could use new rubber. $650
1981 Gottlieb Mars God Of War (widebody)- Game works and plays great, very fast pop bumper action, no broken plastics, playfield looks very good, cabinet is very good, backglass is there but is missing a lot of red in the center, below the character. It displays better than a broken one for sure, and the clips have been upgraded to a black hole glass holder. $750
Pictures upon request,
thanks, James

Love me some MGOW! No, don't want to buy it but if you've never played it you should.

Quoted from Ivan1496:

Ever year we seem to be short on shirts available at the show. I thought we'd try to offer shirts for pre-sale this year. This is one of this years designs. This shirt is digitally printed. The shirt color will be couple shades of blue under navy. Our other design for this year is on our website. The other design is a four color silk screen on the front and back. If you'd like to pre order a shirt it needs to be pre-paid via paypal. The shirt will be there for you to pick up. ID and signature will be required at pickup.
This shirt will be $23 for standard sizes. Add $2 for XXl, Add $3 for 3XL. Paypal is ivan1496@rcn.com
Silk screen design is $16 for standard sizes. Add $2 for XXL or 3Xl

Sweet! I'll be picking up one of each, will PayPal later today.

FYI, the email address listed for you on the PinFest page as an extra '1496' on the end. The actual mailto: link is wrong as well.

Quoted from Gatecrasher:

Well I just found out I will be in Allentown on business the week of the Pinfest. So I'll get to attend the show over the weekend.
If anyone wants to pre-order some pinball parts with no shipping charges I can bring some and meet you at the show.
Now's your chance to stock-up and save big since shipping has gotten so expensive.
It's like getting 33% or so off.
Here's my parts flyer. All parts are now back in stock. Send me a PM or email to pre-order. Be sure to include your cell phone # to contact you at the show. I will have a few extras but to ensure you get what you need it's best to pre-order. You can pay in advance by PayPal or with cash at the show.
See you there!

I need a bunch of lift channels, what size goes to what manufacturer? I need at least one set for Stern then a few for WPC games. How about JJP? (I have a WOZ translite that I might frame)

Decided I'd throw this one out there.
Centaur for sale. $3500/obo

The good:
Nice cabinet
Great backglass
Good displays
Decent playfield with mostly complete mylar
Cointaker LEDs in playfield
Siegecraft LED boards so no flickering LEDs
No broken plastics
Newish drop targets
Plays 100% including magnet & 5 ball multiball
I have new pop bumper caps for it
New Matt Hess reverb board

The bad:
Mylar has a section that looks torn off. Playfield underneath is good. I didn't notice it when I bought it.
Center plastic is not correct (behind O-R-B-S)
Plastics behind flippers missing. They're small but not there. I didn't notice this when I bought it.
No sound. I started replacing caps on board, haven't finished. It might have sound by the show, it might not.
Some inserts don't light up. Chances are it's the crappy 555 sockets.

All in all a great game as is but could be fantastic with a little work. If I were to keep it the mylar would get removed. I put my name down for a CPR playfield so maybe that will happen. Let me know if you want additional pix. These aren't great I know.

I can take to Allentown or would love to sell locally.

On the wrapping games for rain subject:

I also have a truck although now I got a topper but in the past I would shrink wrap the beejesus out of the game then wrap a good tarp around it then re-shrink wrap the beejesus out of it. Drove from middle of Ohio to VA in a pouring rainstorm and had zero water intrusion. The biggest issue I've found is with water pooling in the truck bed so I took a plastic shelving unit apart and used the shelves to lift the game about 1.5" above the bed.

I decided last night that I'm bringing my Congo for free play (and for sale of course). Price will be in the mid 3s I assume.

Don't have any pix but game is in great player's shape. LEDs throughout, lower playfield unit has been rebuilt, cabinet is non-faded and is the color version. There are some dings/scuffs/etc. For good measure I added a toy hippo to the "Hippos!" orbit.

I'm planning on arriving late tonight for setup & will be there through Saturday.

I'm interested in trading for a STTNG or using it as a nice down payment on a Ghostbusters or maybe a Woz. See you at the show!
