Just throwing a feeler out here. Toying with the idea of selling my Cyclone soon. Just curious if anyone in the area is looking for one? Not definite, but likely will move it in the next few months.

#3959 7 years ago
Quoted from LTG:

Pinball Circus is coming up April 5th and 6th. You can bring the game into it for sale, or are welcome to make a sign and put it up for those days. Lots of people looking to buy will be there.
LTG : )™

Thanks Lloyd, don't know if I'm gonna make it out there yet or not though. Gonna try.

#3982 7 years ago

Will likely be in the market for my next pin this weekend. Looking in the 1k to 1500 range or less. System 11's or early 80's Bally or a nice EM possibly or ? What's out there for the buying?

#5890 7 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

I have a HS I could part with.

I like HS. Want something more of a "keeper" in my book. Having room for only 3 right now, want something a little more staying power if that makes sense? I don't know, maybe? I will think about it though Paul for sure. You should just let that BOP go don't you think?

Quoted from Matt_Rasmussen:

This Rollergames keeps coming on and off CL in Coon Rapids. So if you're here, just take my money already!

I've emailed back and forth more than a few times with him. Can't seem to make up his mind if he wants it or?

#6056 6 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

Does the price change?

No. He put it on there last Monday. I replied, then it came off CL. Said he was getting too many phone calls etc, so he took it off, yet he never had anyone come look at it, or set anything up with anyone. Then he didn't get back to me w/pics. THEN he responds days later to me, not sure if I want to sell, then it's back on CL and off again within 24 hrs?? Dunno

#6062 6 years ago
Quoted from roffels:

That's my old RG. Sold it for 975 in September, bought it for 1050 if that helps anyone. You can blame me for the pink LEDs.

He said he bought it from Al 4 years ago for 1900, so maybe it isn't your old RG?

#6068 6 years ago
Quoted from roffels:

Maybe not? Is the seller named James? Was he selling a laser war and Lethal Weapon too in the past month? Bought mine from Al in January for 1050. I sold with the Pinball Warehouse card still in it.
Pinballnut was asking me about my old Rollergames, so I figured it was the same one.

Oh yeah, James was his name. Can't even spell in his emails either. Bad sign right there IMO. You really bought it from Al for that cheap?

#6069 6 years ago
Quoted from davewtf:

I think i'm going to limit my pinside activities to this thread and the NFL thread. There's no pinball related content on here worth seeing. Take that as a compliment to this thread and it's occupants as opposed to knocking the site.

God, I so agree. Everyone just bitches, cries and moans. Suppose to be a "fun" site, not a crybaby forum.

#6071 6 years ago
Quoted from roffels:

Technically Aaron. It was sitting on the sales-room floor probably longer than they liked and it was sold "As Is" without warranty or getting the last check through. Al didn't sound too happy with that price, but my folks and I were buying two other pins as well at the time. They had it on the floor for $1400.
Rebuilt the two right flippers, replaced the VUK armature, put a cliffy over the crack on the "Wall" ramp, patched the broken plastic housing over the shooter lane the best I could, and flooded the thing with purple and pink LEDs. I thought it was fitting for the game. I'd love to have a diamond-plate example of the game back when I have more funds and more space. It's a fun game with some wicked orbits.

Sounds like you got a fair deal. It's a fun game. Hope to have one some day. Ever get the sound working on Mystic?

#6076 6 years ago
Quoted from roffels:

Unfortunately not. I replaced one of the RAM chips, I will try replacing the ROM as well.
The solenoid/pop bumper issue is more involved than I had hoped - I think there may be an issue with a transistor on the board, because the new coil started burning. I took a break from it but will bring fresh eyes back to it this weekend.

Keep me informed. Have a few other pins in mind, but nothing definite. Not sure what interests the wife.

#6115 6 years ago

Merry Xmas everyone. Found out yesterday 2 immediate family members have cancer, so won't be here for awhile. Hope everyone is well...

Anyone here pickup the EBD that was on Mpls Cl Saturday? I emailed him within a 1/2 of him posting it in the afternoon, then finally heard back Sunday morning, THEN later that night he said it sold.

#6224 6 years ago
Quoted from lordloss:

Or that centaur? Anyone grab that?

I have been trying, but cannot get a response. No phone #. Been trying since about 2 hours of the posting yesterday afternoon, and they updated it today? CL is just not worth it anymore..

#6227 6 years ago
Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:

Saw that ad, but didn't see a price.

Originally, it was listed at 200 with just 1 picture. Then today they added more pics and no price. AND no reply still.

#6234 6 years ago

Does anyone have a pin for sale? I am still looking

#6243 6 years ago
Quoted from ChrisS:

What's your price range. I have a Breakshot that is in my living room right now.

Maybe up to 1500. Depends on the title and how bad I want it.

#6254 6 years ago
Quoted from bobWeir:

I will be listing some of my other machines (shopped working) soon, but I want these gone first...

I'd be curious as to what else you may have for sale soon??

#6287 6 years ago

I don't feel any better about it. I emailed so soon after it came up, and I'm 2 miles from where it was located. Would like a shot at it if it comes up for sale.. crap luck as always.

#6289 6 years ago
Quoted from RustyLizard:

Sorry, just to be clear I am not looking to change anyone's opinion of her or the way it was handled. Just telling the story and confirming it was real.

Oh, i know. Just saying. Tough luck for a lot of people. She had no idea I'm sure. Just hate when something this close gets away...

#6309 6 years ago

Anyone have a decent/nice EM for sale? I'm thinking I MAY mix it up a bit and try something different.

PM sent

#6347 6 years ago

Someone on here pick up that Xenon in Madison off CL yesterday?

#6349 6 years ago
Quoted from RustyLizard:

I thought the price was a little high if you are talking about the $1450 one. I have been told more than once that his clearcoat jobs aren't the best. Playfield looked nice though, not the usual bare wood showing through.

Yep, that one. Was a little high in price, but looked nice.

#6351 6 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

'Clearcoating' still populated pfs.

Seriously? Suppose though, he is a cheesehead, so I'm not surprised

#6353 6 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

A nice badcats comes to mind where he had clearcoated OVER the mlyar on the pf! WTF!

Guy sounds like a butcher. Why in god's name would you clearcoat over mylar?

#6363 6 years ago
Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:

Went looking on the Madison CL to see if I could find the Xenon ad that started this discussion.
" target="_blank">milwaukee.craigslist.org link

Was deleted. He sold it weds.

#6389 6 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

Looks like I will be leaving from Madison area to Denver area on Thursday Feb 26th. I have room for 1 pin on the way out and room for 1 pin on the way back.
Time to start hunting Denver ads and threads if you guys are interested in cheap transport of a game.

MAYBE be interested in that Rollergames on your way out?? PM if it's possible..

Just putting out a feeler. Have a friend looking to sell his Barb Wire. Havn't got details or pics yet. I will likely post it here for sale soon. Anyone have any interest in this title? Says it's in "good" condition.

#6488 6 years ago
Quoted from northvibe:

I'm interested, pending price and details/pics

I will likely talk to Paul tomorrow. I will try and get some details and some general info regarding Barb Wire, maybe a few pics and a "rough" price too.

#6546 6 years ago
Quoted from rollitover:

Consider contacting John a.k.a pinballplusMN. He's always got games coming and going.
He had a Taxi not long ago,cheap.

JR sold it to Brain (roffels) about 3 months ago

#6589 6 years ago

Has anyone inquired or looked at the Viking pin on Mpls CL? Having a hard time getting good info and additional pics. Just curious.

#6591 6 years ago
Quoted from brenna98:

I wouldn't bother. After asking many times for pics, I finally got one of the playfield. It's really beat, with lots of bare wood showing. Unless you really want a project, I would pass.

Thanks for the tip.

#6631 6 years ago

ANYONE going to, or coming back from the Omaha, Ne area this week/weekend? Need a pin brought back from the Lincoln area. Thanks........

#6657 6 years ago

I am STILL looking for another pin if anyone is selling. Somewhere in the 1-2k range. See my wishlist, or I prefer system 11's and early 80's Ballys or even late 70's.

#6660 6 years ago
Quoted from gutz:

I have a Paragon in the market place.

I saw that the other day. Not really looking for any kind of a "project" pin though. Otherwise I'd maybe be interested. Barely have enough room for the 3 pins. Anything else your looking to sell?

#6665 6 years ago
Quoted from gutz:

The game is not in project condition. Its refurbished to player's condition.
If you wanted to restore the 2nd playfield, there is your project !

I'd want the better playfield too, but i really just don't have the room, or the time really right now. Appreciate the offer though

Which Iowa thread?

#7015 6 years ago

Ok. Wasn't gonna say, haven't seen anything in the Iowa post for some time. NE is just too far a drive for me right now.

#7016 6 years ago

Don't think I could tolerate looking at Arnie's face every time I played it. Never even played a LAH. Got anything else FS Paul?

Anyone out there have a Evel Knievel there looking to move? Have a buddy here in the Twin Cities looking for one. Needs to be working and in "decent" shape

#8379 5 years ago

Looks great Lloyd. Congrats. 1st one in the Metro I assume?

#8384 5 years ago

Ok, gonna try ONCE again. Who has an Eight Ball Deluxe ('81 or '84) they want to sell or trade? I would consider trading any of my 3 pins for/towards it. Scott

#8386 5 years ago
Quoted from RustyLizard:

No interest in the LE, eh?

I just don't like it enough. The game itself, yes. That display just doesn't do it for me I guess. If I had room for 15-20 pins, then I'd maybe think about it. I would POSSIBLY consider trading my RG for a LE if a deal like that came up. Sure wouldn't move TAXI or EATPM for an LE though..

#8407 5 years ago

Anyone on here in the Twin Cities do housecalls? Having some trouble with the GI on my TAXI.

#8409 5 years ago
Quoted from vwallat99:

John from pinball plus does house calls. As well as Bill mnpinballtech on google. Both guys have serviced my games in the years. Would recommend doing business with either of them. Bill is temporally out from injuries though. I'm still waiting for his help on my twister.. :/

Thanks. Won't deal with JR anymore however. Never dealt with Bill before. May check him out though. How long is he out? I'm in no rush either..

#8413 5 years ago
Quoted from vwallat99:

No idea. I talked to him a week ago and he said he would call me when he's back working again. He does maintenance on the blainebrook machines so he may have his work cut out for him when he gets back to it.

Thanks. Yeah, he'll probably be busy when he gets back.

#8892 5 years ago
Quoted from NightTrain:

Went over to the fair today and went to play some pins. I played a game on the Hobbit. I didn't play another game though, all of the pins were WAY too loud. May I suggest turning them down a hair? I didn't think I'd ever utter those words, but damn, those things are screaming!

I played a couple pins Sat at the Fair. Didn't think they overly loud IMO. Was just loud in there in general. Did play a couple games of GB. Seemed ok, nothing special. Couldn't hear the gameplay very well, so it was tough to judge the sound, callouts etc. Like to play some of these newer games in a home setting. Played a Hercules for the 1st time. LITTLE different.

#8897 5 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

You could come over and play mine if you want.

Definitely want to get out there sometime Paul. Soon as the weather goes to crap for the year, we'll set something up. Doing a big project at home. .

LITTLE on the high side. No color DMD either. Looks fairly nice though..

Just another shout out for Tim up at Nabours Novelty, Maple Lake, MN. He has another K-bid auction for arcade games, a few prize redemption games, and I believe a change machine. Don't know how to paste the link per usual. Maybe you can help me out again Lloyd? Has a upright Defender, cocktail Galaga and a Demolition Derby (rare) to name a few.

my wife gave it the thumbs up, but she is pretty cool. Just wanted to know if we get to watch the photo shoot.

My wife is plenty cool too Hilton, just can't imagine telling her, or asking her permission to use the basement as a backdrop for a XXX photo shoot. I think this gal would look pretty dam good draped all over my nice EATPM!

Apologies for a non-pinball post, but I know there's a lot of arcade game crossover in the community. Anybody local to the Minneapolis area have a tube rejuvenator they'd be willing to rent/lend/hang-out-and-play-some-pins-and-drink-free-beer-while-I-use? I'm doing my first arcade project and am pretty sure that's the next step for the CRT. I recapped the neck board and all is stable and crisp, but dim. PM me if you're willing. Thanks.

I've dealt with a guy named Ross up in Cottage Grove. He builds multicades. Don't have his number, but he always has ads on CL. Great guy and does great work. He might be able to help.

Not sure if you're still looking for a Corvette pin but this one was posted on CL a week ago in South St. Paul. minneapolis.craigslist.org link

Yeah, I saw that one. Too much $$$. Thanks tho....

#9946 4 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

A MN Pinsider I know has a Party Animal-$900, Police Force-$900 with new plastics and ramps and a Dr Dude-$1900.

Pretty fair price for a Police Force with new plastics and ramps. Decent System 11 pin for under 1k.

Quoted from northvibe:

I'm going to look at and most likely buy my first EM, Gottlieb Playball. I've never opened an em or a wedgehead. How do I get the head off?
Looks like it has jones plugs and bolts? Key on the back of the head?

Typically just 3 plugs to disconnect, and your typical 4 head bolts. Pretty simple actually. Most have a lock on top of the back panel. Turn the key and pull the backbox panel out. A bit jealous I must say, I still want a nice EM. Congrats if you pick it up....

Congrats Paul you have room in your game room?!

I'm still considering, well MAYBE parting with my TAXI. IF I did move it, I'd be more up for a trade than selling it outright however. I'll continue to mull it over. . . . .

#10079 4 years ago

Bit off the pinball topic here, but thought I'd give pinside a shot here. Looking to borrow a gas-powered garden tiller. Only need it for maybe an hour. Hate to go rent one for such a short time, so I thought I'd see if anyone locally has one I could use for a very short time. I am in Burnsville, about 20 mins south of Mpls.

I'm on the hunt for a new pin if anyone is thinking of selling. Open to just about anything. Pins on my wishlist are at the top of my "want" list, but I'm keeping my options wide open. Price range 1500-3000

#10316 4 years ago

I have a couple in your range. Any interest in Sega pins? I have a ID4 and a LIS I would consider letting go.

Not to into the Sega pins a lot. But appreciate the offer. May think about it tho...

Looks great Lloyd.....

#10330 4 years ago
Quoted from Fezmid:

So I just had a MET Pre delivered - it looks amazing (haven't turned it on yet, still acclimating to the temperature). Now that I have two in the front room, my wife is pushing for me to get them into the basement theater, which was always the plan (but I kinda like having them on the main floor.... ). Since my time is running out, I was wondering if anyone in the Twin Cities knows of a mover that can take care of this for me? I thought about just hiring 2 Guys and a Truck or something, but I'm worried that they won't know what they're doing and will cause damage. I know that *I* don't know what I'm doing -- I've never taken the legs off before, and that will have to be done. Plus, there's a 180 degree turn halfway down. And I'm not in the best of shape, so I don't want to invite a friend over and risk throwing out my back if I can pay someone a hundred bucks to do it instead.

Chris, you have a dolly of any kind? A dolly and a couple of "adequate" gents can handle it without too much problem. How tight of a turn is it at the landing? You say 180 degree turn, but is there enough room to stand the pin back up and turn it on the dolly?

#10334 4 years ago
Quoted from Fezmid:

The landing is 37" by 77" -- so fairly large and probably enough to maneuver the pins. I don't have a dolly or anything. I was reading some threads about moving, and several people mentioned a stair climber so I was going to buy one -- until I realized they were over $1k and I don't know how to use them anyway. LOL
I'm in Woodbury, so just east of the metro. If people want to help, that'd be awesome! I didn't want to presume that strangers would come over and lift heavy machinery. I'll try to give Pinball warehouse a call too.

How SOON do you need them moved? I can probably get my hands on a decent dolly, but may or may not be able to until Thursday or Friday.

#10339 4 years ago
Quoted from BlueIrocGuy:

Hmm, I'm around this week till Friday and then it's up north for deer opener. I wonder if Scotty wants to make the trip up to Woodbury?

I could possibly get up there Friday. What's your schedule Chris on Friday? If you can, and do come down Jim, bring your Roadshow

#10342 4 years ago
Quoted from Fezmid:

I could probably be home sometime after 4pm.

Traffic heading your way from Burnsville is probably lousy after 4pm isn't it on 494? Maybe a little later may work better?

Quoted from BlueIrocGuy:But then I'd have to go down to your house and help you move it into the basement!
Ok, sounds good.

#10344 4 years ago
Quoted from Fezmid:

Yeah, but if you come help, not only do you get to see cool pinball machines, but also a cool theater where the pinball machines live. (they'll go in the back of the room as you can see here). Tempting?

Think he meant bringing Roadshow down to MY house after helping you, and moving into my basement. Nice theater room! Could be space for more pins tho?????

#10346 4 years ago
Quoted from LTG:

Mine can be borrowed. I'd want it back the same day.
LTG : )

Thanks Lloyd. If I can't get my hands on one, if Jim comes down, he has one.

#10356 4 years ago
Quoted from Fezmid:

Big shout out to TheBrewhouse for helping me bring my pins into the basement. It was a little tight but we did it!
In unrelated news, I'm never selling my T2 or MET.

Glad you got them down without issue Chris. Look good down there. And yes, you have room for more down there as Brew said. Thanks for helping him out. Hope to check out that MET soon. . .

We were greeted with 16-17” in the driveway with 3 1/2’ drifts in front of the garage doors when we got home from MGC tonight. After an hour or so with the help of a snowblower and 3 teenage boys, we had it cleaned up with another inch of fresh snow down and more falling. It was kind of a nasty trip coming back from Milwaukee today. I can’t recall seeing more cars and semis in the ditches on a single trip before. We even got to watch a couple of accidents happen ‘live’ in front of us, which is always fun for the heart rate! Fortunately, all the folks we saw playing guardrail pinball, looked to be ok, just broken bumpers and delayed arrivals...

Glad to hear you made it back safely buddy.............

Thanks to everyone that replied regarding both pins. Been out of town since Friday. Be back to work Wednesday. Have a ton of interest in both. Have no details on price, and still need to get pics. Will TRY and reply back to everyone when I get back and have time. I'll go in order by response once I know prices etc. Couple of you I've replied too already. Sorry for the delay to the rest of you.
