Quoted from FatPanda:

I didn't know you did trades. Is this like an automotive trade-in where I'll get a way undervalued trade-in due to overhead and all that? o.O
No need to respond here Chris! I will definitely keep that in mind in the future!

No, I just traded him a few games for a Dialed In and got fair market value for mine plus some cash on my side. If you want more info fell free to pm me.

#10402 13 days ago

I would love a JJP game in the house, and trading is probably the only way we could swing it!

#10403 13 days ago

@fatpanda

Trades are always available. What I normally tell customers is that I can't pay retail as I do need to go through them, resell them and stay in business. Usually i recommend that they try to sell the machines themselves and then just buy what they want from me. Things worked out well with Tom for a couple reasons.

1) games were cosmetically and mechanically ready to go. No need for me to do anything.

2) I had a buyer lined up beforehand so I didn't have to store them

3) i have worked with Tom in the past so I was comfortable giving him a little more because I knew what I was getting out of it.

Let me know what you would like and we will discuss different options.

Quoted from KingPinGames:

What are you looking to trade for?

Open to offers but mostly looking for higher end games.

Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:

Wow! 'twas UP/DOWN that set the tone with quarter pins! I would never have guessed!
UP/DOWN is less my jam, but I'm grateful it's there. I do stop there - just less often than I stop at Tilt.
I still assume John Galvin is a serious pinhead. Anyone who would have a lineup like he has on the west wall of Tilt has got to be someone who strives to be a dreammaker, not simply an earner. If I ever met the dude, I would be incredibly effusive.

I've met John. He's a nice, kind, great guy. And he does love his pinball.

John is kind of crazy about pinball. He told me it's his dream to have the top 50 solid state titles at once. He's probably not far from it.

#10411 10 days ago

Any know where to get some widebody glass local twin cities? I already called John he only has standard.
Anyone have any have way good used williams superpin wide body glass?

#10412 10 days ago

I don’t. But there are a few different wide body sizes. Might help if you specify the game it’s for.

#10413 8 days ago

Anybody near the cities have an NBA Fastbreak they would part with?

I have a couple sheets. There isn't anything major wrong with them that I remember. I only bought new at the time because pinball life had them so cheap during Expo.

Hi everyone. Posted a few machines for sale/trade in the market today. A really nice ST TNG, Junk Yard, WWF Royal Rumble (trade). Not sure on the prices (especially on TNG) so let me know if you have any interest.

I also have a Shadow (alternative artwork) that is in good shape besides the Sanctum. ColorDMD, custom LEDs, and laseriffic topper. Was planning on fixing the sanctum before listing, but if anyone wants to do the repair, may be able to work out a good deal.

I love all these machines, just looking to get some fresh games in and don't have anymore space.

Any chance you're planning to come to MGC in April? Would love a Shadow, but the drive kills it for me.

Not sure! I haven't in the past, but maybe this year.

Trade value on royal rumble?

#10419 8 days ago
Quoted from lordloss:

Trade value on royal rumble?

Probably around $2500. Would very much like a LOTR

#10420 8 days ago

Would like to find a pinbot locally. Looks like there are plenty around. Please PM me if you have or know of one for sale.

I'm holding out for a$1800 ish one, the one at MGC dropped all weekend and the last price I saw was around there.

#10422 8 days ago

I have an NBA Fastbreak that’ll be ready for sale this weekend..

It’s the nicest non-restored one I’ve ever seen. Super clean inside and out. The original CPU board had a little acid damage and I’ve got a new Rottendog board coming for it later this week.

I was planning on listing for $3250 (like I said, it’s sweet!) after a shop job but will sell pre-shop for $2750.

Please let me know if you are interested!

Second Guardians of the Galaxy has arrived in the Twin Cities and is playable on route at The Mermaid for all those in the north metro.

Quoted from LesManley:

Because it’s only 50% of a game? Heyyyyyyyy-oooo

#10431 1 day ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

I'm sure it will be $1.00 at Mermaid, so probably best to play there to get the full 100% game.

I didn't think it was amazing, but it's not nearly as bad as people are freaking out about in my opinion. Here is my quick review based on a few games today...

"It was in a loud pinball bar so I couldn't hear the music/callouts or lack thereof really so I guess I didn't miss anything there. I thought it was fun, I don't think it's nearly as bad as some people say, I think it's more than a "box of lights" for instance, it's really just Metallica layout with almost an exact copy of the Aerosmith ruleset currently. Start a mode, start a MB to have a chance at scoring big points. Modes have the "upgrade" available after hitting a shot just like in Aero for more scoring but like in Aero most aren't worth playing and you just ignore them while you try to start a MB. Modes time out, shoot scoop to start a new one. Same mini wizard and wizard mode format. Same 3rd mode start for lighting EB. Same "lock a ball" playfield multiplier like in Aero and Met in MB. Same SJP values in MB. Same shot multiplier as in Aero. Art is really nice and the shots feel good for the most part. I didn't have a ton of ramp shots that didn't make it around and when they didn't it was still pretty safe, it didn't drain SDTM for instance. I want to play it again, but there really isn't anything new here. If you have played Met and Aero you have already played GOTG in it's current state"

Welcome to Stern...

LOVE the theme but I dislike most Sterns, as they reuse so much in terms of rules and layouts.. very little originality...not my cup of tea at all.. oh well
