Spirit goes for crazy prices, more than what I'm willing to pay for it. Reminds me of the classic Sterns that have recently shot up in price but this was always up there. I've flipped one a few times and it wasn't for me. Just because it's not for me though, doesn't mean I go around bashing other people's FS ads. This game is sought after by collectors. Neo will get it sold; just has to find the right person.

Quoted from beergut666:

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

I made the drive from Estherville to eastern Wisconsin (both ways) several hundred times. Trust me, the 300 miles from Sioux Falls to La Crosse is horrible on any day of the year. It is boring as heck, with an occasional stand of trees. Once you hit the bluff 10 miles west of La Crosse and come down the hill looking at the Mississippi Valley and head east, it's another story, you'll see beauty everywhere. Minnesota has a ton of beauty, but I-90 'taint one of them!

Quoted from alexanr1:

Wow, 8K for a spirit? Does that mean my Haunted House is worth 8K , too? The HH actually works.

If you have not idea why spirit is so insanely high priced, then you havn't really been paying attention to spirit. Spirit is one of those games, that restored, can get 12-16k. more valuable than fathom, warlock, starlight, stargazer or some of those. Spirit was sent to europe. Many were parted out through the years. It's has amazing gameplay, 3 ball multiball, tons of shots, and killer backglass animation. and you think it's expensive now. Wait until my pascal gets here. If it doesn't sell. I'll relist it fully working in about a week.

I drove that stretch a few times, once in a snowstorm to see a band in Sioux Falls. The snow was ripping down from the north across the highway, nothing was stopping it. Brutal.

What band? It’s getting better but our musics scene wasn’t good for a long time.

It was the KISS acoustic show at that Pawn shop. Fantastic show.

Avengers LE just dropped off at the Blue Moon Bar in Madison! Since I can't put a picture up your going to have to either get in your car or use your imagination to picture how nice the Yellow Powder Coat looks next to the Turtles Green Powder Coat next to the Rick and Morty Purple Powder Coat. Remember to NOT lick the lock down bar. It is 2020 after all. . .

I got a chance to stop out today and put some games on Avengers IQ - It plays great and is a ton of fun. I was hitting the Captain Marvel ramp ~70% of the time. The Dr. Strange portal seemed to not always raise all the way up, but the ball would still go in. Thanks for putting it on location.

Glad you could make it out! Sounds like the boys have some scores to go after. . .

Yeah, the portal is slow to open generally. We didn't see any failure to fully extend when we play-tested it at the house. In my head I knew not to just thrash the thing while it was rising. Ill be able to put some eyes on it tomorrow morning.

Wanted: 1990 Williams "Whirlwind" Pinball

Happy to consider any/all examples within, say, four hours of Minneapolis.

Thanks.

#14815 1 year ago

I'm likely going to be selling an AFMrLE w/green trim in the next few days. It has 418 plays. HUO. No additional mods. Looks and plays new. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.

Figured I'd post it here before I throw it on the marketplace and Craig's.

Same seller has a Whirlwind available as well - at least he did last weekend!

#14827 1 year ago

I just put a post on the buying/selling subforum but if anyone local in the TC area collects woodrails and would be interested in a Big Six and Ramona please get in touch with me. They aren't mine but I know someone looking to sell. I'm doing this to help a mutual friend out and to help pinball. I don't think he's looking to get $1,000 each for them but if anyone has a fair offer for him I'm sure he'd accept.

Put a cpr gold playfield on that dog and it went quickly. It’s amazing how well it played after that. I’m sad I sold it.

Always looking to make more pinball friends! Please drop me a message! Also, really interested in playing a Stranger Things. Would pay for time on one, or happily bring some beers and pizza!

@ cpr9999

Whoa - might be jumping the gun a bit in anticipation of Lawrence Welk pin announcement - that might be a year or more off ! You thinking LE ?

Sure you want to sell your AC/DC ? That's a dandy game you have ... Maybe you should hold on for awhile.

Lawrence welk pin? I'm cancelling my order for Avengers. Any screen shots yet? I can't wait for bubble chaos multiball.
