Still hoping to find a Bally or WMS SS pin to shop/revive/enjoy. Projects are okay, too. Just looking for something to tinker with as my current project is finished and going to a new home soon. I realize we are probably in the summer pin-sale doldrums already, but if you're willing to buck the trend by offering something for sale, I'm in the market. Let's make a deal!

#19503 1 year ago

Local video game site Minnmax had a 3-minute community documentary thing and the first doc was on Brian Schmidt and composing the Black Knight 2000 music. Pretty fun, some Steve Ritchie and Ed Boon tidbits and I didn’t know about the Yes influence (makes total sense) or that he also did the OG Xbox startup sound, thought y’all would enjoy.

#19506 1 year ago

Hi guys- I'm looking to have a Mr and Mrs Pacman transported from Kenosha to Spokane, WA. Any suggestions on who can do this, and ballpark estimates of what it should cost me? Thanks for the help!

Quoted from AmyE:

We in this region seem to have just one pinhauler, but he tends to go east and south. I have never heard of a route of his taking him due west, but I could be way off. He goes by BroBra here. If he can't help, and if no Pinsider happens to be making the trip and could haul your pin, you may have no choice but to enlist the go-to commercial pinhauler STI/Beltmann. The contact there is Michelle Bianchi. She will get you a quote within a day typically. The advantage to STI is they are perhaps the only hauler that does NOT require you to pallet the machine. Their drivers will show up and haul your pin out of your home, legs on! Just be prepared for a number above $600, as pinhauling is NOT cheap right now.

I would also ask in the regional threads that include other states on your pin's prospective route. I don't know offhand if there are many, but there might be one or two.

Lastly, try this Pinside thread: "Transportation Questions." I see at least a few hauling requests there. I assume haulers look there for customers.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/forum/transportation-questions

Congrats on your purchase!

#19508 1 year ago

Keylime has taken his son here many times and likes it. He may also know the management. I think Ben Grainger is part of the inner circle there. I had a chance to meet him recently and he spoke about this business venture. Nice guy. I don't get over to St. Paul that often, to be super frank, but a pricing model of $15/day would distinguish Starcade from virtually all other locations (that I know of), and since I'm bad enough that I can burn through $15 in an hour at a place like LITT, I might be tempted to drive to St. Paul to try Starcade. Good luck to them in their move!

shipping games in general is not cheap - I had an empty arcade cabinet shipped to me - $700 (never again). Size/weight doesn't seem to matter anymore - almost a flat and fat fee .

I've been to their existing location and had a good time, but unfortunately it's really not a great deal for pinball. They had 4 machines and only 1 was on free play (Simpsons Pinball Party), while also being in very rough shape maintenance-wise. The newer Sterns were pay to play (75c I think?) on top of the entry fee. Still worth it if you also like arcade games, as those are pretty much all on free play, but not a good value prop for purely pinball players.

Drat! I didn't realize the cover charge includes just one pinball. I should have asked Keylime for clarification!

The most experienced pin movers we have here locally are Chad brobra and Steve Sterpins . I vouch for both of them completely. Both make trips all over and move all kinds of machines for fair prices.

Unless it changed recently, it was .50c for the premium/LE games when I was there this winter. All the non premium/LE games were free.

Starcade just opened up at their new spot in St Paul and it sounds like a much better Pinball place. Their Livestream said they've got 25 pins and they're now outside the arcade section, so you can pay to play those without the cover fee.

NICE - Do they have a game list somewhere just for their pins?

#19543 1 year ago

Metallica Banner. Does anyone have a digital file for the Metallica banner sounds like a pdf or a vector file is what I need. Liking to make a neon sign for it. Thanks for you help

#19544 1 year ago
Quoted from WildRover:

The pins are outside of starcade, coin drop.

From memory they have:
Godzilla Premium
Godfather
Foo Fighters LE
Ultraman
Cactus Canyon remake
Judge Dredd
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Elvira House of Horrors
Ghostbusters
Demolition Man
Pinball Magic
No Fear
Black Knight
Black Knight 2000
Swords of Fury
Lord of the Rings
Bad Cats
Whirlwind
Fish Tales

I'm forgetting a couple.

#19545 1 year ago

I'm looking for a BSD, or TFTC. Any condition.

In the next few weeks I will be listing a Paragon and a Firepower. I'd be willing to potentially offer up both for a trade for BSD or TFTC; or 1 of my machines+cash on my end for either game. Or of course cash outright if there's no interest in either of my games.

Quoted from MNPinner:

Probably need to take a good photo of it and auto trace in illustrator or convert to a pdf….
Unfortunately, there’s no way to get a vector of the original art without having a friend in a very deep position, due to intellectual property rights and protections.

#19547 1 year ago

Just went, definitely a positive experience. Think the only two you forgot were Ripley's and Game of Thrones. Everything I played was in good repair aside from a slightly weak right flipper on Dredd. Oldest stuff is 50c a game, many were 75c, and the newest/nicest were $1, 3 games for $2.

It's in a little open market type place w/ some coffee, beer, and food places. Lots of parking.

Scores are still low so I heard probably a dozen free game knocks in my hour there, lol
