So, I am itching for both a TMNT pro (not against a prem/LE) and an AIQ prem (or LE, but $). Been thinking about moving along some of the lesser loved stuff in the basement, and thought I'd float out a feeler before getting everything ready and ads put up. If anyone is thinking of moving a TMNT or AIQ and wants to discuss an oddball trade, let me know. I have done crazier and it's worked out well for both sides. Here is what I'm considering letting go:
Haunted House - good average players condition, a little typical wear, nice BG, has a display that likes to come and go...I think it's a connector as a tap on the head brings it back usually. Has a couple minor board hacks (honestly not positive what is hack and what is ground mod, LOL), but it's been solid the many years I have owned it, so I never got around to fixing or replacing. Has a Rottendog power supply board. Plays great and pretty fast for a HH.
1959 Gottlieb Straight Shooter woodrail - Really beautiful shape. Perfect repro backglass and plastics. Very nice playfield. Decent cab. Plays awesome.
1976 Bally Flip Flop - semi-working project. Just tore it apart and cleaned up the playfield (still in process putting back together actually). Very nice BG, above average pf, will need some mechanical work, but complete. Before tear-down I could start a game but had a few issues. Will have it back together at minimum before selling.
1976 Americoin Junkyard EM arcade crane game - works well, decent amount of cars. Decent cab. Non-original 8-track and the sound comes and goes. I believe it to be a connector issue, but never bothered with it. Really fun game that I will probably regret selling, but it just doesn't get played.
I believe these four machines would get me about in the ballpark of a TMNT pro, and someone with the ambition to fix a few issues and flip them could probably come out way ahead.
Other stuff that could more reluctantly go:
1955 Williams Jolly Joker EM arcade roll down game - not quite a pinball, but kind of. Very cool, roll the balls, light up poker hands. Very nice overall with slight flaking on BG. Very hesitant to let this one go, but would for the right trade/offer.
1952 Rock-Ola 1436 Fireball 120 Jukebox. All original, unrestored. Decent shape, works great. Could include a bunch of 45s but nothing special. Very cool machine and again it would take a good offer to let it go.
I also have a couple Arcade 1-up machines (Centipede and Asteroids) and a older CRT based bar-top MegaTouch that could help round out a trade if need be.
Again, nothing officially up for sale yet, but if someone with a TMNT or AIQ sees something they would be interested in trading for +/- a bit of cash, let me know. I know it's a long shot, but heck, I once traded 6 machines for 1, so worth floating out there. LOL
