Quoted from LesManley:

No, they never sent me the Prize Package so unless it shows up sometime in the future, I guess we won't be having one for Venom.

I think the last launch party I was at was when Avatar first came out.

But.

I did look on sterns site per their “find a launch party near you” and it looks like there’s one in Chicago or something like that. Nothing closer. Seems odd.

We had to "Double Check" on our launch party stuff. Might wanna give them a call, things are a little off with the move and all.

What the? Must be the same container as the rush expression lighting

#20205 8 months ago

My playball is at my in laws and they don't have room to fit Rush, so I'm going to list it. It was shopped out a few years ago, new white rubbers, CT warm white leds and all was working to my knowledge. Just a heads up, probably start it at $1k based on prior market ads.

#20206 8 months ago

Anyone have a used bond/jp pro or venom premium to sell, dm me. Thanks

#20207 8 months ago

shaker spoken for.

Also have tear drop Stern lollipop rails but doubtful I can ship them reasonably. Looking to get $50 for the rails…

The new Lumberjack Johnny's is now open in Appleton. 23 pins in the line up and they play great, along with a bar and food.

#20209 8 months ago

Went to Litt’s new space today in Minneapolis with the wife. Bought some merch. Bravo! Love the new setup! Bar is huge and games are plentiful. Dogs are still delightful. Even got to play GTF just because it’s hiding back by the bathrooms

We were just there too and on that GTF! GTF always seems to have a lot of action there and we don't always get to play it. Others may be shocked to know one of the other three hiding back there is a bond 60!

That's cool, I popped in a couple days ago and they acted like they didn't know when they'd be able to open.

Just wanted to give a quick shout out to crank

He had a very specific trade he was looking for, and we were able to make a long distance deal today.

Very easy guy to deal with and his machine was exactly as described.

And its the LE. We are almost done with fall league. Winter league will start a few weeks after that.

#20217 8 months ago

Quarterly follow up - anyone have a Jurassic Park Lost World, Nascar, World Poker Tour, or Lethal Weapon 3 they would like to sell or trade? I could move my Judge Dredd or Diamond Lady if you would rather trade vs. sell.

#20218 8 months ago

I know there’s a lot of locals in here looking for a Stars.

One just popped up on pinside for $2000 looks like new boards and nice playfield. Cabinet seems “good enough”.

Downside is it’s in TN but seller is willing to ship. I don’t know the seller nor have any connection to this sale. Just saw it come through.

So, I did a thing with Luke Nahorniak. It’s a tournament venue that will have around 50 games with a flat rate entry fee of $20, all games on free play. Great mix of moderns, classics, and EMs all meticulously maintained. We’re down in Savage and will have our first event on 12/3 at 3:00. Doors open at 3, tournament is at 5 and is totally optional.

Very cool. Just a couple miles from my house!

#20228 8 months ago

Best "mod" available in my opinion. No pin gets to enter my house without it.

Hey this is practically in my backyard- is it just going to be a venue for tournaments or are there, amenities or drinks or rules? Looking forward to this either way.

Looking for a decent EBD. Projects are okay as long as the playfield isn't gnarly, I ain't no playfield specialist!

Hey fun fact. Did you know Genie's cabinet is larger than a normal system 1 cabinet? Did you also know, you can fit a Genie cabinet into a 2004 pontiac gran prix? Welp, you have to remove most of the car door hardware, but it can be done.

Oh it happened, and it was amazing. When I saw him pull up, I was thinking he was making two trips….. we did it, and man, were we proud of it.

Legend has it, I even put my car back together. Well minus a couple of bolts.

Reminds me of the time I fit a Williams Indiana Jones in a VW Golf. Granted the cabinet was empty, but still squeezed it in.

This was some next level Tetris stuff going on. Main cabinet was in the back seat, backwards with PF glass facing rear window. We had to remove some door hardware to get it close to closing, but not actually closing. We strapped the doors on the car closed as much as we could with windows open and strap going over car. Finally, backbox slid into the trunk, leaving about and 1/8” to spare.

I wouldn’t believe it myself if I didn’t help do it….. LOLOL

Quoted from Deaconblooze:

I was looking at used cars with my 16 year old this past weekend. No need to wait for Xmas, they are already at 10k……

The used car market is just dumb.

Fringeneer should add his Grand Prix to the wiki. I can’t wait to see the head scratching going on when someone reads that.

#20245 7 months ago

I fit a RFM in a PT Cruiser. I’m still not sure how we squeezed the head into the front passenger seat. The rear seats pop out, so the body slipped right in.

It's too bad that Honda discontinued the Fit. My Fit Sport was under $17K brand new and can handle most pins with ease.

My insurance just doubled, I don’t need it quadrupled…. lol…. I actually have a mini cooper for him in my shed. We are putting a new clutch in it, but time is at a premium right now.

Hmm…. I wonder if I can stuff a pin in a mini cooper……..

#20249 7 months ago

Remember when you could sell games? lol

A guy steps away from the market for a couple months and comes back to this? Afraid to buy anything right meow...

#20250 7 months ago
Quoted from WildRover:

Our market is not exactly like other regions- our thread has no pins for sale posted in the past few days just sold's and pendings. Still think its harder to get machines here since we've historically been at the edge of the pinball bible-belt.
