Any one in mi have a Dr dude or another good 90s system 11 for sale?
Ya I'm thinking about that one, but I'm not sure how I feel about the yellow rails and legs for that price.
Thanks for the info. They are definitely priced high at 1800 for a Dr dude, and aren't willing to come down from it. Between that and the yellow powder coat I'm just not sure. I think it may be tri city pinball but I don't know. He said they just got rid of the shop and are selling out of a house. Really on the fence but love the pin and its hard to come by. System 11 early 90's nastalgia I guess. Plus its a 5 hour round trip
Great advice. Thank you. Ya its the "I just sold some stuff to buy a new pin and really want one now!" Thing. I'd like to find a good one at auction or a class of 1812, but I may just wait and see what comes up for sale soon. Thanks wario
Looking to trade a pair of project pins in southeast mi near Toledo. Number one is a silver ball mania. The playfield is shot. The back glass is nowhere near perfect, it had some bubbeling that looks like it was repaired somewhat. It has a new mpu board and several pinscore displays though, and everything seems to work. The other game is a Williams contact widebody. Game works and plays as it should, but the display is messed up. Im not sure if its the power board or the main display board, but all displays are garbled. Back glass has some flaking and minor planking on playfield. I am just out of time for repairs right now. Open to offers, but would like to trade + cash for a 90s or newer working game. Pm me if there's any interest and I can send pics
For that price I may have to think about keeping it and put a new playfield/back glass/display on it. Fun game just no time. Do you ship?
Does anyone have any playfield in bad shape they are willing to sell? Condition doesn't matter much, I just want to try my hand at playfield touchups and have a project I'd like to use some for (bartop). Please let me know. Located in southeast mi
Anyone have a rocky and Bullwinkle? I think that's going to be the next one I'm after.
Awesome. Thanks for the info, I just emailed them, but the ad said 2 months old. My brother lives in grand rapids and can send him to check it out. Thanks a lot for the offer though. I've been wanting this pin for a whole 3 days now, so its time to pull the trigger!
Depending on price and condition I would drive that far. Pm me if he is willing. Thanks a lot
I have a Williams contact that I'd like to sell, has a number out on player 1 and 3, I think its a resistor, playfield has very slight planking and back glass has a bit of flaking. Pm for details
Anyone happen to have a class of 1812? I know its hard to find up here but ya never know
Thanks Aaron, already enjoying the bone busters! Next time hopefully I'll be able to join you for league!
The people i have dealt with on here are great and honest. Luckily I have never had to deal with choggard!
Whysnow, I know in Toledo, Dr Scotts pinball has a rock (with encore mod though) for 1500. Last time I was there I saw it but I didn't really look to closely at it. Website is pinballstore.com he is kinda pricey, but maybe he is willing to come down. Good luck on your search!
I agree completely. Didn't know what one was worth until I researched it a bit after I posted. Good luck with the search!
Anyone have a radical! Or stargate That they would want to trade? Anything I have +cash except gladiators
Did anyone from here pick up that Zaccaria pinball champ on cl? Just curious what kind of shape it was in
Thanks again gravitar, it was nice meeting you and buying from you. The Ann arbor show was AWESOME!
Listed a Williams contact for sale in the market. Needs a master display which I just ordered so that should be here within a few days hopefully
I'm selling my high speed on Tuesday and kinda looking for a data east time machine if anyone has one
Waddle, if you do end up heading there, let me know, I still have that oddessey for you if you want it
Just picked this up today, needs a new playfield (if anyone has one) and some other work too, but the main ramp is flawless and brand new. So I may be looking for cyclone parts soon
I'm always last in line, first time I ever got there quick enough! Needs a lot of work, but the ramps alone are almost worth the price. Good guy to deal with too
Hopefully someday I can get one. Always seem the games I want pop up as soon as I spend my pinball funds! Anyone interested in a players condition big hurt? Haven't thought of a price yet, needs a shop job, but need to raise funds!
Ya I haven't figured out a price yet. I know I'll lose money on it, but it may be time for a change. Really want a time machine, but doubt I can get a trade on that. Open to other trades
Quoted from RCA1:
Just assuming this LOTR listing from Kazoo CL is long gone.

do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers
I was wondering that too. I was going to send my brother there to check it out, but it sounded a little like a scam. If it wasn't though someone got an amazing deal!
It sounds like I may be moving soon into a new game room. Bigger room, but I don't like the prospect of moving all of my arcade game projects down there. Is anyone interested in a bunch of arcade games? (Most work just fine but the cab may need art or t molding). I currently have: great 1000 mile rally, area 51, wrestle war, blood bros, martial champs, centipede, space invaders deluxe, and possibly a Sega turbo cockpit. Open to offers on one or all, or trade for pinball. Will post in market as well.
Anyone in need of random parts off of a gottlieb torch? Also have a ramp assembly for a high speed. All 5 pieces, no rust, diverter has a crack in it. Pm if interested
There's 2 we are looking at, both with walkouts, one has low ceiling, the other is a 10 ft ceiling but has multiple offers in on it so we will see. Did you get yours?
If you need help testing your games out after you move, let me know!! Ha-ha. One we are looking at is in green hills, sterns and summerfield so right around the corner from you
Whysnow, make the trip over and check it out! Or just trade me with never playing it!
Ha-ha, that was definitely a joke. If you find one to play and are interested, let me know. We can make something work.
Thanks Colin, next time you're down this way youll have to stay a little longer and play a few games on it!
Wariodolby-mike, I sent you a pm to see if you still wanted to sell your time machine. Let me know!
I would guess skirting the headline ad would be fine as long as the game is still listed in the marketplace? I use this thread a lot more than the marketplace so I too hope it's still acceptable
Does anyone know a good source for finding em gun and submarine games? When my gameroom is done id like to add one or two
No game in particular, just something in de ent shape that works. I would prefer a rifle game, but speedway looks interesting. Pm me with details and price when its nearly ready. Itll be a month or 2 before im able to put games in the gameroom, so im in no hurry!
No, i was commenting that you had a gladiators for sale, not lost world. I did always think that was another jp game though!
Anyone have a wipeout that they would want to part with or trade? Have a taxi, maybe a strange science
Just saw a radical listed on detroit cl. Wish i had the cash, those dont come up often
Quoted from PanzerFreak:
I have a good condition 1977 Cleopatra for sale. Game comes with all new plastics, new rubbers and has had its original boards replaced with the far more reliable Flipp PI-1/X4 all in one Gottlieb System 1 board ($300 new from Flipp). Also included is the original manual, coin box, original boards (not sure if they work or not) and original plastics (new ones on the game look much better, haha). Game plays great, all displays function, only issue is that the the right pop solenoid is kinda weak and should be replaced. New glass was also just installed on the game. Outlane posts are in the coinbox, I just removed them to make the game play more difficult.
Price is $525 firm which is what I have into the game.

Really wish i had the cash right now! Nice looking game
Anyone interested in pro lighting equipment? I just picked up a bunch and 93% of it is probably for sale
Looking at the chicago thread, i believe there are no pics allowed in the regional threads at all any more
Anyone have a gottlieb wipeout they would want to trade? Debating putting up my taxi, strange science, maybe speakeasy, maybe another game or 2. I want a wipeout and also thought about selling to raise cash for a met. Pm me if you have one that youre looking to trade!
Anyone have a wipeout for sale? If no trades i can probably sell something to raise the cash
Thanks. I played a very nice one at the ohio show, im not the best player, but i like that style game, hell, gladiators is my favorite game and that would look great next to it
How many different trims are there for met? Pro pre le, then road case, dirty donny, and master of puppets?
Difference between premium and pro besides the hammer and leds? Worth the cost difference?
Ok. Looking it up theres very little info on the diff trim packages. Thanks for the info!
Quoted from Leachdude:
Sure the pro has LED's but not the color changing inserts or the colored G.I. effect. You also have the moving cross, the snake jaw close's, fuel target bar (not that big a deal), spinners. IMO it is worth is.
Worth that much of a price difference? Ive only played the premium once so i really dont know. The color change leds are big for me, but it can be done aftermarket too right?
Trust me, this is a huge investment for me. I have to sell a quarter at least of what took me years to get for this. If i do it, i want what will make me have no regrets. I worked very hard to get the games i have, buy fix sell repeat. But even still, i dont know if i can do it. On a side note, i may have games for sale soon if you want to buy one!
And as far as the downvotes go, i am honestly interested. I cant find much info on all the diff trim levels, and really curious if the le is worth the cost over pro. Im willing to sacrifice a lot of my collection, i want to know as much as possible
Has anyone been to marvins recently? Curious what games they have now, i am taking my son up tuesday for his birthday
Quoted from tmontana:

Tron (ticket software)
I'm pretty sure I'm missing something.
Was up there last Friday for league night, I don't remember any major issues with any of the games but then again I didn't play them all.
cool, thanks. i havent been up there in quite awhile. cant wait!
Wish i had the cash right now. Good price with the topper still there. Any interest in trades?
I called about an hour after it posted and the phone went straight to voicemail. Someone got a great deal
Ive been the first caller before on a good deal for less than an hour drive. Left immediately. 10 miles away i get texts that someones offering more after he said it was definately mine. I went back and forth offering a tad more, then a half mile away he said it was spoken for, someone had sent a deposit. I went off on him for saying its mine and wasting 2 hour round trip. If he was going to go auction style, tell me so i dont waste my time!
Ill probably have a secret service up for sale soon that i just picked up. Its missing a power board and needs shopped bad, has a few other issues i have to deal with. Playfield is full mylar and looks great under the dirt. Details and price to come!
Pro techs- first choice is champion amusements in sylvania oh, dr scotts pinball in maumee oh
I may sell some games to fund a different game, bally atlantis 1600, pinbot 1300, speakeasy 1400, maybe time machine 1800, sing along 700, odds and evens 650, aquarius 650. Not selling all, just enough to cover the next game. Pm if interested. Donation to pinside per game that sells
Still looking to sell a couple games. Wipeout, speakeasy, gladiators, pretty much anything but metallica and abra ca dabra. Really want a new stern!
It would be mine this weekend if i didnt short out rollergames taking pics! No idea what i did! (Well, i know what i did, just not the damage or how to fix it)
Man john, i just saw you have a houdini now. Awesome! Im gunna have to play it some day!
Toying with selling or trading my gottlieb wipeout and gladiators. Would trade towards a gotg, as, irn maiden, gb, etc. +/- cash as needed
I hope hes ok. Hes a good man and a real asset to the community. Prayers for him and his family
Thinking about putting my bbh pro up for trade. Id like to trade for almost any newer stern, imdn, as pro, gb pre, im, avatar, gotg, got, etc. +/- cash as needed. Also have a gladiators and a wipeout that i would trade for a stern as well. Bbh has led, shaker, deer speaker grills, lighted speakers
Still looking to trade my bbh pro for a different stern. Would love a maiden, but that probably wont happen. Maybe as, gotg, gb, etc. +/- cash
Going to list a gottlieb operation thunder soon. Needs shopped (have a rubber kit), and missing an outlane post, but looks like it will clean up very nice 1600
Howoe, i was just up your way on sunday. Stopped at poppas place for breakfast (best breakfast around) i forgot you moved up there or i would have gotten ahold of you! Glwts
Just opened, no sign yet. Its a second location, the other is in brooklyn. Its in the plaza with busch grocery store. Easy to miss.
Anyone interested in trading my gb pro for their deadpool pro? A little cash on my end. Mine is routed, but its still nice and ill be shopping it out this weekend.
Thinking of trading my huo munsters pro. Shaker and spot spotlight are the only mods. Looking for a newer stern, as pro, gotg pro, maybe lotr, im open. +/- cash

Ya, it has the boards and coin door, hoping someone wants it but i want it out of my basement!
Quoted from RonPac:
I am new to pinside & basically so out of playing pinball that you could consider me a beginner. You can look at "my story" post once it is reviewed and released, but I played "back in the 'EM' day when I was a kid. I am now looking for a working EM for the man-cave. At least, that is what I think I want.
I've been "lurking" and learning. I read the "what would you but for $1,500" thread"
Here is what I think I will do for now, buy a older, working EM, like a classic Gottlieb Wedgehead (even though I didn't particularly like the smaller flippers, drains and short play (when I was a paying customer). Or not a Wedge/small flipper (Sell me something else or sell me on a different approach.)
My idea is that this approach not only allows me to limit my investment in the hobby, for now, as I grow into it. I plan on going to an arcade or venue that has a SS, DMD machine and work on my skills, which are poor, for now. (face it, the arcades and bar pins will drain my $$ too.) Once "get bored" with the machine I buy, I will then sell it (If I can sell it, lower investment could lower my potential loss too) I will then upgrade to the next "level"/mode/era of pinball machine, and repeat until my skills and interest build more which will justify a killer contemporary contraption.
Besides, I currently only have room for one machine.
So, does anyone have a older EM that fits the bill in their collection that they could sell off to the new guy?? What "non-scammer" Michigan machine someone might part with to a potential buyer?
For example, I saw a post a little ways back where pinsider amkoefer had some pins they were thinking of selling (an Atlantis) but, it isn't listed in the Marketplace. There is a local "Groovy" Gottlieb pin I am going to look at soon.
Just throwing it out there. Maybe I will change my mind and just go for a different pin. There is a Aztec on Craigslist over in Kimball, MI by John at Pops Coin Op, has anyone dealt with that seller before?
Thanks for your time and attention
The atlantis was the bally version, not the gottlieb em. Keep an eye on the michigan thread and any for sale ads. If youre going for an em, find one you love. I can see an em getting old in a single pin collection. Abra ca dabra is a good one if you can find one (just sold mine). Im sure there are plenty of em people that can help you out. I currently have 2, both for sale, but both are projects. Find a solid working one, and play the hell out of it!
Just picked up 2 time machines. Container fresh. One is back to 110v, the other is still 220. Both are incredibly dirty but complete. 1 cab is very bad, other is ok. All boards are there, 1 mpu had the batteries explode it looks like. I would sell as a pair if anyone is interested. Didnt want them, just wanted to get them to someone that would appreciate them. Could make 1 good players game and a rough but functional game. Pm if interested.
Quoted from PinballNewb:
Went to college at Toledo and lived in Temperance for a bit. You could tell when you crossed over the state line back into Toledo just from feel as your car started violently shaking from the shitty roads.
Opposite now. Toledo streets are better taken care of, and always plowed in the winter. Cross into mi and it gets worse. Im back and forth across the border constantly since my house is about a quarter mile into ohio. Kid goes to school in mi, family is in mi, for some reason we crossed the border
Its a ticket redemption game, was going to upload an image but cant on the subforum
Thinking of trading my oktoberfest for something i habent owned like tron or lotr, probably place an ad soon though
