#167 7 years ago

Any one in mi have a Dr dude or another good 90s system 11 for sale?

#169 7 years ago

Ya I'm thinking about that one, but I'm not sure how I feel about the yellow rails and legs for that price.

#174 7 years ago

I haven't dealt with bay city but that's who has the Dr dude. Its priced a few hundred high, but is full led and powder coated. Anyone dealt with them?

#177 7 years ago

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

#179 7 years ago

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

#201 7 years ago

Taxi hmmm..... When its ready for sale let me know price/pics. I may be interested

Bax1, they are definitely fake. A tales of Arabian nights for a grand? Or an Indiana Jones for a grand? Waaay too good to be true! Those fake ads and the "I buy pinball machines" posted 15 times a day really get old! Hard to find a real machine for a decent price anymore

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

#324 7 years ago

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?

Anyone have a rocky and Bullwinkle? I think that's going to be the next one I'm after.

#494 7 years ago

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!

#496 7 years ago

Depending on price and condition I would drive that far. Pm me if he is willing. Thanks a lot

#497 7 years ago

And if he's looking for a trade I think I'm ready to trade a decent shape hook

#500 7 years ago

Not a problem, I've got a few leads on one. Thanks for letting me know

#506 7 years ago

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

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!

#788 6 years ago

I agree completely. Didn't know what one was worth until I researched it a bit after I posted. Good luck with the search!

Waddle, any interest in a big hurt?

#1362 6 years ago

Ya, depth and big hurt probably don't go together!

#1383 6 years ago

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 soonIMG_20150701_210009503.jpg

#1385 6 years ago

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

#1553 6 years ago

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

Just assuming this LOTR listing from Kazoo CL is long gone.
Was it real? Anyone here get it?
Lord of the Rings Pinball Game (Three Rivers)

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.

Considering putting my bone busters up for trade. I may be moving soon to a basement whose ceiling is too low for it. Prefer trade, would add cash on my end for a time machine or a Stargate.

#1757 6 years ago

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?

#1760 6 years ago

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

#1761 6 years ago

Whysnow, make the trip over and check it out! Or just trade me with never playing it!

#1763 6 years ago

Ha-ha, that was definitely a joke. If you find one to play and are interested, let me know. We can make something work.

#1781 6 years ago

Thanks Colin, next time you're down this way youll have to stay a little longer and play a few games on it!

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.
Flipp PI-1/X4 board link: http://www.flippp.fr/boards.php?lg=en

Really wish i had the cash right now! Nice looking game

#3098 5 years ago

Anyone interested in pro lighting equipment? I just picked up a bunch and 93% of it is probably for sale

#3211 5 years ago

Difference between premium and pro besides the hammer and leds? Worth the cost difference?

#3214 5 years ago

Ok. Looking it up theres very little info on the diff trim packages. Thanks for the info!

#3215 5 years ago
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?

#3217 5 years ago
Quoted from KillerQ:

You guys are fighting over elite versions of one of the best modern games.... And I'm over here scraping to get my first SS which will probably end up having to be from the mid 80's because of budget restrictions...

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!

#3218 5 years ago

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

#3221 5 years ago

I have no passport so i cant cross the border!

#3224 5 years ago
Quoted from Boiler415:

I sent you a PM listing out the differences between the different models. I was in the market for one recently but ended up going a different direction. Still, it's a great game!

Thanks boiler, that helped a lot, very informative

I called about an hour after it posted and the phone went straight to voicemail. Someone got a great deal

#3838 4 years ago

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!

Midway gun games don't allow the gun to come off easily, compared to say CCM or williams. Not that you can't do it, just it's not as easy as i would like it to be. I'm sure it can be done though...

Damn. Well if i can think of an easy way to grab it ill email you

#4722 3 years ago
Quoted from cfh:

The gun deck does not come off easily on midway games. Compared to Chicago coin or Williams where it does, the deck doesn’t flip or come off on the midway gun games

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
