Quoted from Zampinator:

And are excellent LED bulbs! That's all I use.

Yeah, I dont use them because they are cheap. I use them because they are the best bulb out there! Helps that they are cheap but I dont skimp.

In case anyone is planning on going to get this game, I just went an looked at it. I offered him $500 but he wouldn't take it.
detroit.craigslist.org link

The game doesn't have a lock down bar. The backglass is good but has some light flaking. The game also has an issue where when you drain, it recognizes the drain, gives you your bonus, gives you a new ball but stays on player 1 ball 1. Playfield was in decent shape but it does have a little wear down to the wood around the inserts especially. As you would imagine it also needs new rubbers and a good cleaning.

Also, you will talk to the Dad if you call the number but the game is at his son's house. Son had to call dad for every offer I made and the son was kind of acting like I was a nuisance coming over (I was only there about 15-20 min.)

#2203 3 years ago

He should have accepted your $500.

#2204 3 years ago
Quoted from RCA1:

He should have accepted your $500.

Agreed but as he said "I've had a lot of people call about this thing", so I guess he's trying to get his full asking price as he never counter offered me at all. But at the same time when I first spoke to him it sounded like they wanted to get rid of it quickly since his son was moving soon.

Quoted from Msch:

Looking for a <2k dmd...thinking jd, jm, dm....for a friends first machine. For me looking for a bsd, bad cats, eatpm, fh, RS, ww

PM'd you.

EDIT: I mean messaged you, not Pinball Magic'd you....mine only cost $1600 in Michigan

#2206 3 years ago

Any nice Doctor Who for trade?

Yes, $500 was MORE than generous.
He'll regret passing on it.

As of right now it looks like I'll get to spend all of February in Kalamazoo... Who has something they want to sell out that way in the <$2k category?

I've been looking for my first pin for a couple months now. I don't have the cash right now for what I really want, LOTR or NIB GOT pro. Maybe later this year. Right now, looking for something for about $2k. Has anyone ever been to "Pinball at the Zoo"? I see that there's a pinball auction there in April. My question is whether it's worth waiting until April to try to pick up a machine there. Are there usually a lot of machines in that auction or just a few? Are the auction prices reasonable or ebay-style inflated prices? Thanks for any help!

Cool show but don't wait for auction.

#2212 3 years ago

WCS94 Available, still looking for a nice Fish Tales....

#2213 3 years ago

Forget about my request to find a machine for a friend. They always back out when the rubber hits the road

There are often many machines on the floor for sale over the course of the show - you'd likely be better off getting there earlier in the day on Friday or Saturday, playing some games and going that route as opposed to waiting for the auction (though, anything's possible).

The auction is cool and you want to be there for it, but the chances of you finding "the" game you want is pretty slim.

There are not tons of games in the auction.

Prices are "auction prices". Great looking games are going to have more bidders.

Like Wotan says, you'd be 1000x more likely to find a game on the floor, than in the auction.

#2216 3 years ago

Thanks for all the responses! I'll check out the show when it comes, but I'll keep shopping for now.

Quoted from sulakd:

Along with all of the PATZ discussion, have cash on hand Friday and Saturday. It's not uncommon for a machine to show up with a FOR SALE tag on it and then get sold quickly before it hits the auction block. That's your best chance of getting a DMD. DMD games don't get to the auction often...

Being Michigan, the snow is subsiding and the tax checks are about to roll in. Best start looking now as Michiganders seem to want to trade/buy/sell around now.

While you are visiting kzoo swing by the Kruzman compound and check out some pins and hang out awhile.

World Cup Soccer is a good first pin and there is one for sale here. The theme is not coveted, but that's why such machines are relative bargains.

Thanks everybody! I ended up picking up a Lethal Weapon last night from Mike (Wariodolby). Great guy - he spent a lot of time walking me through the machine and showing me what to look for when buying. Showed me how to use the menus to test switches etc. I tried to pay attention, but I was still in a daze from being dazzled by his collection! Not sure I'd have the fortitude to cross through that gauntlet of machines to make it out the door each morning for work.

Anyway, great first buying experience, and I really appreciated being shown around the machine, which I doubt I would have been from some rando on craigslist. Thanks Mike!

#2224 3 years ago

I have given up on Craigslist altogether because the Pinside community is invariably more friendly. Wariodolby is a great person to buy your first pin from and I would go so far as to say most people active in this thread would have given you similar treatment. Welcome to the hobby!

At the rate Mike changes up games, you'll have plenty of chances to see his collection. Enjoy your first game! What are you getting for your second and third?

This feels eerily similar to the first time I bought a home-theater projector. Thousands of dollars and two dedicated-theater-room builds later, still going strong!

(And to answer your question, maybe an RFM. Gotta walk the budget expectations up slowly on the path to NIB ).

I own a waterworld and you would be surprised at the game play. I have cleaned mine and LED it and added new GI lighting in the dark areas.

Check out the link on what I did to it. I also have a rock custom undercab kit on it

Pins are like bunny rabbits they just seem to multiple and some times very fast.

As long as you have enough cabbage to feed your rabbits, yes they'll multiply quickly and fill your area fast.

Thinking about selling my AMH NIB (near the end of the run, with extras. Topper, plastic protectors, LED lighting upgrade, probably something else I am forgetting).

So tempting to open it, but I need some extra cash to finish my basement pinball/arcade room. Only trade I would consider is LOTR + cash, else I am thinking $9.5k obo.

Love my AMH. Here's a rare chance for someone to get one. Good luck with the sale!

Put it up on its own full market ad, ebay, and mr pinball, and clist and see what happens.

TBT, there are only 150 of them and it is a great game!
Rare, NIB, and FUN tends to mean demand is greater than supply, so price follows.

From recent history the prices are already going up fromt he the original cost of 6500. I was at Spooky factory last month when a secondary owner was picking up someone elses NIB AMH he had already sold (before even getting/ new owner was picking it up as he had sold one from earlier int he run and regretted it I guess so paid the premium for a second) and I think he had paid 7700 for it with no add-ons.

Honestly though, when you post it please post it at 10k just for the fun of it!

Terry has one in the back room at Pinball Life. Well worth the stop if you are in the area. Pick up some parts and play a few games...
