Thinking about getting some pins at the new place finally, someone sell me something. Ideally looking for $1k-$3k per and looking for a couple (can go more if it’s the right pin(s)).

#14853 13 days ago

anyone have a working Gottleib 6 digit large Blue/white display?

can trade for other working displays or other parts.

I have
Bally 6 digits
Zaccaria 6 digit
Zaccaria 7 digit
Zaccaria 8 digit
Williams 7 digit
(maybe bally 7 digit, and maybe williams 6 digit)

#14854 13 days ago

It's a two for one today at St. Paul Tap! Not only will Avengers be playable there today, but the new Guns N Roses LE as well! Twice as many reasons to head on down and check out the newest games from Stern and JJP!

Alright guys it’s been a whole day and I still don’t have a machine yet (ideally looking for like 7) I know you guys can trim some fat for some new adds! LTG won’t let me sleep under the pool tables so I need some help here for the home collection.

Are you looking for:
- turnkey games (need no work)
- working games that could use a shop-out
- project games
- other
?

Any particular "era" of game? (EM, SS, DMD, etc)

#14864 12 days ago

Looking for turnkey, solid quality. Had an EM phase but mostly out of it. Would take anything from SS to today depending on price.

Bohdi already have had an EBD, trying to get new games but appreciate you mentioning it.

I just ordered a wonka se from Fargo Pinball and the service was excellent. It arrived faster than I had expected and the price was great. Communication was fantastic on this order. I have also purchased a tmnt pro from them. I had a playfield issue and Bill went above and beyond to make it right.

Good to know. My next purchase will most likely NIB and I would like to keep it local.

Hey guys,

Was worth asking here but I am on the hunt for a Ghostbusters Pro locally to MN or WI. Was worth asking here as I hope to not have to ship one but be able to go pick it up. I am ready for one and hope somebody has one they were thinking of selling.

Thanks!

#14878 8 days ago

And on the topic of NIB sterns, American pinball or JJPs I have used Glen at The Pinball Place in New ulm. He has been super awesome to work with and is local in MN and delivers. Took care if me and my TMNT PF issues.

Also I can agree that Bill at fargo pinball was awesome to work with as well!

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

#14882 6 days ago

Went and checked out the 4 pin lot in maple grove today.

Guy pulled them out of a shed, lots of swollen cabinets, mud dauber nests, missing transformer in one of them. Alien Star had mold on the playfield, Ali was severely rusted and very flaking backglass. Hypersonic backglass was starting to flake and fall off on the bottom as well.

Would not reccomend dealing with him, as soon as I said I wasn't going to buy them he did a 180 on his attitude and isn't someone I'd deal with again.

Guy has responded to multiple postings I have made on FB and has had a dump attitude online immediately asking "what's the least you'll take." Thanks for confirming my suspicions about the dude.

Hey guys! Just introducing myself. I bought my first couple of pins earlier this summer. Jason Jehosaphat encouraged me to say"Hi" in this thread. Somewhat new to "Modern" pinball and have been enjoying my pins (TMNT and DP)
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!

Hi and welcome, Jason knows me and has been to my place.

If someone wants to reach out to him and pass on what I said about the maple grove pins, I'd appreciate it. I don't like wasting my time and it was only a 14 minute drive from me.

If he drove the four hours, he wouldn't get very far haggling with the guy as he just see's dollar signs and doesn't care about condition.

Yeah, I'm definitely leaning that way. I just got to play both games for the first time a few days ago, and while I loved them both and hope to own both at some point, TMNT is the one I can't stop thinking about. We will see what opportunity presents itself first.

Now...who wants to make a wacky trade, LOL...

That's crazy. I saw the 6k book value for the 4 pins listed at 2999. I actually reached out to buy them but he said he had a buyer lined up (must have been you, Charlie). I'm glad I didn't waste my time. Sorry he got aggressive with you; that's not cool.
