Looking for a Tron.

#12302 10 months ago

I'm kinda dead set on a certain IMDN, but I'm gonna explore all options. So, may be looking for a new(er) Stern, a nice mid 90s B/W, maybe a restored early 80s Bally or? Have roughly 6500-7K to spend.

#12303 10 months ago

Metallica pro for sale or trade. Looking for GOTG pro, SW pro, or Iron Man.

Quoted from Fortytwo:

Anyone know about this skill shot? Most of the games in Eau Claire are not well maintained. I wonder who will be maintaining these games. Donavan again or a collector?
https://www.weau.com/content/news/Coffee-pinball-lounge-to-open-in-Eau-Claire-504985691.html

It's John Galvin from D&G who operates Tilt in Minneapolis. He's crazy enough to do it himself, but I'm not sure if he is going to maintain them or have someone else do it since it is pretty far from him.

#12305 10 months ago

Would love to buy a HUO newer Stern Pro this weekend close to Twin Cities. Not that interested in mods but open to the right pin. IMDN, MET, SW, SM, AS of most interest. Anyone?

#12307 10 months ago

I sold a Tommy for $5500 about 5 years ago. But it was flawless everywhere. looked like it just came out of the box, and was tweeked so it played like butter. Still the smoothest playing tommy i've ever experienced.

Yours doesn't count. I've never seen an unrestored game that looked as perfect as that one.

Did anybody on here sell that T2 on Craigslist? I was just getting ready to list mine.

I do miss THAT Tommy. I've owned several since then and they did not play anywhere as smooth as that one did.

#12313 10 months ago

I have some project sterns to sell:
Big Game: Complete game, decent backglass (some red flaking) and cabinet, Playfield has lots of planking and wear. $500
Stars: Decent backglass and playfield, cabinet has been painted a solid blue, boards are missing; otherwise complete $500
Located in southern MN. Preference given to a buyer that will take the both.
PM for pics and questions.

Also have a refurbished Old Chicago in the market place.

That's me. The guy is coming over tonight after work to pick it up. I'll be selling Doctor Who next, so look for it soon.

#12315 10 months ago

Hey everyone...I’m looking for a few games for my basement. Anything out there? TAF, TZ, T2, AC/DC, Aerosmith. I know I’m a outsider and don’t post much on Pinside. Just trying to get more involved in pinball and the community. Thanks

#12317 10 months ago
Quoted from Seven9er:

The address is 417 2nd street, Hudson, WI. It's taking over from the short lived Mexican restaurant on the main drag. Parking won't be fun, but the location will certainly get a lot of foot traffic.
It will be very interesting to see how many machines they are able to pack in there. As lesmanley said it's a pretty small location to begin with.

Aspen Vending just picked up their Munsters LE today. That is going in their new location in Hudson along with Addams, Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool and Star Wars. It's opening the end of March. Apparently there is a place across the street that has several Stern music pins already too.

#12318 10 months ago

My T2 is in really nice shape. I'll put some pics up soon.

If you're coming to MGC, we have deals for ACDC I know

?????? Where is all this happening?

Apparently the pinmap needs some updating.

Hudson Tap will be at 417 2nd street, Hudson, WI after St. Patrick's Day. Munsters LE, Addams, Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool and Star Wars will be there. It's taking over from the short lived Mexican restaurant on the main drag. I don't remember the name, but apparently a bar across the street already has several music pins there.

#12323 10 months ago

I am pretty excited about having more options on this side of the cities. Wife and I love downtown Hudson so hopefully it will be that much easier to convince her to check it out with me.

#12324 10 months ago

Dropped the price to $4700. Have a couple other trade offers, but really looking to trade towards a GOTG.

Have a WWE Pro and Mustang Pro listed in the Market Place. I am located about 25 minutes North of Milwaukee.

BOTH GAMES ARE SOLD

The bar across the street is Ziggy's (formally known as Pudge's) I've been meaning to stop in and find the music pins. I read an article in the local paper suggesting the pins are only available for private events.

I'm so excited for Hudson Tap, I drove by last night and saw a delivery truck outside, pretty sure they were delivering pins. Or at least my excitement was assuming they were delivering pins!

Anybody here in the pinball twin cities league on Monday nights?

#12329 10 months ago

Curious about what a bogus/scam response to a Craigslist ad might look like? Behold!

"i work as a secondhand dealer located in STEVEN POINT and i am buying this item for my son around your area, He as a pinball handle..i will be having movers come pick up the item after payment is confirmed by you so plan is to send you the check first thing tomorrow in a usps priority express mail and it can be delivered to you as soon as possible"

The classic setup, complete with butchered punctuation/grammar and misspelled words. And these often actually work!

#12330 10 months ago

I'm looking to buy or trade for a Paragon and a Skateball. Non-working or project games are fine too. Games available for trade that I have are Jungle Lord, Elektra, Time Warp and Alien Poker. I'm near Neenah, WI.

#12331 10 months ago

Sadly, yes. If they didn't work, they wouldn't keep trying.

I'd be interested in your Alien Poker if you decide to sell.

I vote yes... FatPanda needs a new pin for sure!!

#12334 10 months ago

Thanks, I'll keep you posted if I sell outright.

I have four of the five Bally early SS widebody games (Embryon, Hot Doggin', Space Invaders and Future Spa) and I think it would be cool to have the last, Paragon, to complete the collection. I also like the playfield layout of Skateball.

I live in point area. Tell him your friend will swing by and collect the payment in cash. Please provide address and name he should ask for. He also has a pinball handle.

Nice collection of the big boy Ballys! Skate ball is on my short list as well. They never seem to come up for sale though. GL with your search!

Wow. Pudge's is gone. That was a Hudson institution. That place was there when I was a kid 40 years ago. I think it was there when my grandparents were in their prime.

Oh no. My car club used to go there back in 71-73 because the drinking age in MN was 21 and 18 in WI. We had a LOT of drunkin nights there and some how none of us ever got a DWI.

Back when the local law enforcement would just throw you in the tank till you sobered up. At least that is how it used to be here in our small town.

No chance of that here. We also went to Dibbos in Sumerset.

I think you are thinking of another place up in Somerset. Dibbo's used to be just down the street from Pudge's it too has changed. Lot's of remolding/turn over in Hudson over the past few years. Downtown is pretty cleaned up, still have Dick's Bar for the dive bar fans out there and they have an Iron Maiden pin too!
