I got one. Cab’s great, until you show up and it actually has chips of paint gone and the corner of the head is borked.

Comes with a pin gulp though. And a piece of gum on the bottom.

Five years ago...

I’m talking FIVE YEARS AGO...

I sold this guy a WCS as is for $2500. He came, played it, and picked it up. A week later he whines about a 20-year old piece of GUM underneath the cabinet - you know, like 100 other old games I’ve owned - and a myriad of other small complaints. I gave him a couple plastics I had to help cheer him up, and yes a free $15 pin gulp, and all was good with the world.

Anyway...this couldn’t POSSIBLY be referring to that game, could it? After all this time, and after the beef was apparently settled to everyone’s satisfaction back when there were only two terrible terminator sequels instead of four?

If it is - which would absolutely boggle any sober person’s mind - I will make a good will offer to buy this offending machine back for the $2,500 I sold it for all those years ago, he doesn’t even have to clean off the gum. It’s the least I can do.

Let me know family arcade! I can likely pick it up the weekend following the Super Bowl.

maybe it’s the same? It was 5 years ago, after all. God 5, really? Time flies.

Let’s see. WCS advertised on Pinside, WITH pictures. For $2,600. The game had “been gone through and worked great”. When I arrived to pick up the game in person, the pictures (and accompanying Pinside description of the game) had conveniently omitted the split corner of the head, the chip out of the paint below the coin door, the broken right sling plastic held together with scotch tape (tape applied quite well, as I didn’t even notice that until I got home!), and the largest plastic in the game missing. And yes, there was a piece of ancient gum stuck under the game, discovered upon set up at home.

Upon voicing displeasure with what I considered a very inadequate, if not misleading, description of the game, I was told with no concern or remorse “take it or leave it, the price is the price.” And something along the lines of “you don’t play the cabinet”.

I did buy the game, because my time is worth something and I really wanted a WCS, but yes, I was disappointed. More in the seller than the game. As I thought the seller had more integrity than that. A well known seller and hobbyist shouldn’t pull that shit. Since I was buying the game “as-is”, and it had a pin gulp on it at the time of pick up, I argued it should be included. And it was. Once the game was gone and the plastics situation was realized, yes, I complained again. And I got a plastic out of it.

I remember it because it’s the only negative experience I’ve ever had buying a pinball machine. In 10 years and about 20 machines. I don’t buy from the seller any more.

Friends of mine that know this tale laughed their asses off when they saw my original post. That was fun too.

Good luck with purchase!
