Congrats, LTG!
Thanks for being perhaps *the* stalwart in the pinball community of MN.

#14752 29 days ago
Quoted from tbaum:

Geek's Mania in Madison had one. Don't know if they are open right now, or if it is still there (was last year).

Thanks, I Love Geek's Mania. Dane county is shut down right now and probably will be for awhile with the students returning to UW though.

Geeks mania is open Thursday thru Sunday, but they no longer have a p3. They do have other great games though.

Woah, thanks for the info. I'll have to go in for a couple of games to help support them.

"YOU are the last man standing!"

I have no idea how this hasn't been snatched up yet. It's cheaper than a Stern Pro for crying out loud!!! If I hadn't already bought the Pro last year I would've been all over this months ago.

Why is there masking tape over the crossbow light?

#14759 28 days ago
Quoted from Waxx:

Why is there masking tape over the crossbow light?

Keeping in mind I don’t know this game well....where do I look for that? I didn’t see anything.

#14760 27 days ago
Quoted from EJS:

We can’t put photos here or I would but is the plastic above the right ramp. The light on the left.

#14761 27 days ago
Quoted from Waxx:

Why is there masking tape over the crossbow light?

Simply to shield my eyes from what, to me, is an excessively bright light.
Easily removed, of course.

#14762 27 days ago

Eww, don't use masking tape.

Unless you are about to paint something, masking tape is never the answer. It's only good for two things: masking while painting, and pissing people off in the future.

Anyone looking to part with a Metallica LE? I've got cash or an AFMrLE.

#14767 24 days ago

I’m thinking about trading my TMNT Pro but I still like the game and don’t know what I would even want instead. If you have something interesting let me know.

Looking for: jokerz! Can pick up. Thanks in advance!

Why? This seems like a very abnormal request

#14770 24 days ago
Quoted from Pinball_Basement:

Probably a client of John's that has fond memories of it from back in the day. Nostalgia often wins over gameplay, at least in the short term.

#14771 24 days ago

I actually liked the jokerz i played once, maybe it was just set up right or i was lucky, id buy one too if it was close enough and cheap.

#14772 24 days ago
Quoted from LesManley:

Aside from some of the audio that would get old after a while, I don’t get the hate for #jokers. I’m guilty of the nostalgia though having spent many quarters worth of my allowance on it at the local arcade back in the day. I would absolutely put this in the lineup if the price was right.

#14773 24 days ago

Anyone local looking for a JP premium with sunset orange powder stern shooter, tilt topper, full cliffys, and some other mods? Acquired an LE.

Quoted from LesManley:

I don’t like TAF gameplay at all but the nostalgia is strong with that one.

Same. I had the same thing with Stellar Wars. First time I played one was at Expo my first year going and the thing was literally brand new. I kept coming back to it each time the exhibit hall was open.

I bought one about 2 years ago and bought a second playfield in better shape, shipped it to Neo to work his magic and now mine is playing the way I remember it. I have more money into it than it's worth but I don't care. I'll never sell it.

If anyone local is thinking about a Gold EATPM CPR playfield I might be looking to sell locally. You can save on shipping. Just looking to get what I have into it I think I paid $850 as listed online currently on CPR. Need to fund some other projects at the moment. This was one of their earlier runs.

I wasn’t planning to list classified here yet but would be happy to reup your pinside heart too if you buy.

#14779 22 days ago

Well, I have a Gottlieb spirit up for sale. I don't have an MPU board for it YET!, but will have one, and it won't have acid damage. So it's currently a nice unworking example. Very nice backglass, unfaded cabinet. Good shape all around.
Will consider a cosmic gunfight + cash for trade.

I don't gamble but the bar with the route games has it so i drop a few in

I have been interested in an IMVE but you are just a little too far for me.

#14791 18 days ago
Quoted from Waxx:

I've done 6 hrs one way on the road before. Easy! My longest has been a 16 hr round trip. I spent the night nearby after picking up the machine, but I've definitely made a 12 hr round trip the same day. You can make it out!

yes, 6hrs one way is fairly easy. My longest was 36 hours round trip without stopping. Dropping off and picking up games around the entire state of OH and heading home. Travelled with my dad, so we changed off driving.

Also, the drive from Sioux Falls to Madison would be beautiful right now. Fall colors are really popping.

I did a trip to the middle of Ohio, met in the parking lot of a toll booth rest area.Traded games and $ and went right back home.

Felt kinda sleazy.

May want to check the average prices?

His price is below one for sale in Ohio atm.... and it is much more rare than HH. The market will decide if it’s worth it..
