Quoted from benheck: I think he just wanted to travel around to cheat on his wife.

What makes you think that?

Holy crap. Levi. That was the best single Podcast I have listened to on pinball.

All,
I would highly recommend this podcast as a general history of pinball 1980-2020, and as a fantastic summary of everything that happened with JPOP and Deeproot prior to SEC documents dropping, which apparently happened the day before recording this.

Levi, we need a follow up podcast of everything that has happened in the interim.

It is also great to confirm how many of your posts are drunk posting.

I had no idea how many people JPOP screwed over and how much was lost on the delivered Big Ban Bars.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Lots of usable stuff in this lot. Stand-up switches, coil assemblies, flipper coil assemblies, drop target assemblies, various switches, motors, bolts, post screws, bell plungers, some mystery boxes
$12,002 hammer price--yikes
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

That was me buying my stuff back for about $0.40 on the dollar.

#29905 1 year ago
Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

Shill bidder was the auction house. The shill drove up your bid, then the auction house cashes you out at a higher price than you would have won it without the shill involved.
That was one of the reasons I quit bidding at Super Auctions in Mesquite. The phantom bidders outnumbered the real bidders sometimes.

This is actually a federal crime in a bankruptcy auction. I seriously doubt this to be the case.

#29906 1 year ago
Quoted from Roostking:

Thing is most of us didn't know that stuff about Spooky and that interaction so our first what the fuck would be the hiring firing and then rehiring of j-pop within like 3 days.

Long-story-very-short; Robert swooped in and tried to buy Spooky and Pinball Life. He also tried to hire Ben Heck and Dennis Nordman.
End result; he hired Dennis Nordman, and there's nothing wrong with that. Dennis delivered the designs he was paid to make. They were never produced, obviously.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

BBB was a once-in-lifetime confluence of hard work, passion, lost money, and incredible good luck.

True, but it also was directly connected to Gene's purchasing of all the Capcom parts. His final production number for BBB is directly related to how many MPU's (and tons of other Capcom parts, for that matter) he owned.
The project was 90% assembly and 10% manufacturing.
I mean to take nothing away from Gene's achievement. It was, and is, monumental.

Quoted from pinballlife:

It was great meeting you down there, you guys did great! I did pretty good with 50 or so "Deeproot" purple shooter assemblies, tons of flippers, tilt assemblies, 100s of coin door asemblies among others.

Barry Ousler had to delay cancer treatments after losing health insurance during the Deeproot disaster.

"Barry passed away on February 21st, 2022. Kathy shared while in the midst of battling cancer in 2021, Barry abruptly lost his income and his health insurance after the Deeproot disaster. The medical bills were no longer covered and his medicare wouldn’t go into affect until February 1st. They put off as much treatment as they could until after February 1st, but the family still endured hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical bills.

On top of the grief of losing a husband, this is an overwhelming amount of debt."

So Robert Mueller and his fraud literally contributed to ending lives.

I gotta tell ya John, you remind me of a favorite boxer back in the day, Randall Tex Cobb.
He wasn't a gifted boxer or flashy and his strategy was always basic and the same. Take repeated shots to the head and body but always moving forward (or getting back up)

Larry Holms defeated Cobb winning all 15 championship rounds in a lop sided ass whooping. In his dressing room after the fight, a bloodied and barely recognizable Cobb was begging for a rematch.

If you don't find something in pinball, John, maybe you can come back as a bounty hunter.

One of the guys reached out to me that got stuff at the auction. If he needs any help or guidance I am here for him or others. It would be nice if some stuff survives for History! Everything is a go for my booth space at the Pintastic Show. Come out & talk pinball. See the EZ Pinball cabinets on display, & see if I can assemble them.

I saw this too and had the same reaction. How absolutely heartbreaking that Barry O lost his life or at a minimum his life was shortened directly due to the horrible financial mess that DR created for their employees with this illegal fraud operation. I wish this could’ve been added to the list of things Robert has to be accountable for.

Glad you liked it, I enjoyed knocking a few back and doing pinball free association for 3 hours.

The wheels are in motion for a follow-up podcast, with Blueberry Johnson doing the heavy lifting as he's really been clued in to all of this stuff. I think the idea is to wait till the story is finally over. Whenever that is.

I would take issue with your drunk-posting claim...I simply don't do it! I'm usually rummaging through the fridge or playing guitar if I've had a few. Drunk posting and drunk podcasting are two different things! If I truly were a drunk poster I think you'd see a lot more grammatical errors and moderations. (exhibit A: Lamberger)

I stand corrected on the drunk posting. There were numerous references to others drunk posting on this thread. So many people were put under JPOP's spell. Luckily for the community, most people were able to break the spell pretty quickly.

Who picked up Lot 311 - 2 pallets of pre-cut pinball boards?

I'd buy a couple from the buyer so I could practice doing inserts, etc on a playfield before I move to restoring my machines. Also, looks like it could be fun wall art for my pincade.

That was Keroppi

#29938 1 year ago

Yes something could be done with the cut playfields & I think there were lenses also. In the past I have used lenses from Foremost Plastics, Northern Precision Plastics, Pinball Life, Marco Specialties, & Pinball Resource. Even Rick at PPS was trying to sell the skid he has.

This might've been a part of lot212: https://mtdauctions.hibid.com/lot/115284669/contents-of-pallet-rack--rack-not-included-?cpage=4 - you can see it in the back left of picture #2.

I asked about things that weren't sold as part of a lot (there was a little bit - maybe 10%). The reply was that there might be a secondary auction to sell any left over trash.

Overall the auction was a bit of a crapshow -- the lots were poorly described and it many situations it was hard to tell what belonged to what lot. Some local professional bankruptcy auction shopper apparently found that one of the warehouse racks of nondescript boxed contained dozens of brand new i3 processors. He got the entire lot for ~$1000 while a similar qty of JUST processors went for some ridiculous figure -- like $5k.

Were those i3 processors on this same rack? https://mtdauctions.hibid.com/lot/115596099/contents-of-pallet-racks/?q=&ipp=100&ref=catalog

Because the same non-pinball guy that bought all the speakers and some other random stuff got this. The boxes on the lower rack were FULL of complete pop bumper assemblies. The middle rack? Drop target assemblies, slingshot assemblies, etc. If they'd have taken a picture of what was in those boxes.
