I have a hs2 but it will not be ready for about a month or so if you are still interested then. Sorry but have a very busy schedule.

Quoted from polyacanthus:
Can someone fill me in on this choggard fellow without getting in trouble? Sounds notorious enough to know about before I go looking for my first machine. Or any known scammers in general, that would be helpful.
There are far more trusted sellers in Michigan than bad ones. If you find a machine you like post it here and ask opinions.
Ok wait, if it weren't for the shaq attacks and nba fastbreaks we would have less games to part so good games can live. I do have an rfm cab if you are trading a nba fastbreak.
Collector quality. Cab 9, broken bracket, black repro cloud topper, shopped 4 years ago.... i would maybe say a nice TAF and post some nice pics. Nice of you to help a friend, and i did get a chuckle with it has dual coin mechs
Quoted from bob_e:ADDAMS FAMILY $7100.00 Listed for a friend, the game is in Westland, MI.
Collector Quality game. Was shopped about four years ago and has had very little play since. New Playfield installed was clear coated and it plays fast. All plastics are fine. The Cabinet is a 9+, It has dual coin mech and one lamp bracket is broken. No missing lines in the display. The boards in the backbox look fine, no battery leakage. Reproduction topper (black). Manuals and keys included.
Good to meet you today Mike. Good guy and easy to deal with especially on a large deal. Nice collection man and i need one of those arcades that thing is awesome.
Quoted from Bigbossfan:
Tough crowd. I wasn't saying whether or not his asking price is in line, just stating the pin is an extremely nice one. You know, trying to help anyone out that might be interested. Then they can engage the seller and dicker on price from there.
I got what you were saying. For what its worth here i trust BigBossfans opinion as we have been dealing with each other a few years now.
Quoted from initfo:
I listed my T2 today. If you've had a pin listed you've likely gotten a PM from me about a trade for this (lol) but now it's up for outright sale.
T2? What are you looking for a trade?
Another good buyer/seller in michigan (googleloy) very nice transactions. I even showed him how to pull a pf. Good guy.
Quoted from Pinwow:
Btw that looked stunning at Patz
Thx for bringing
Thanks man. Its getting a nice Kruzman pf hopefully sometime this summer if time allows. Hot Pink, debating nude. Sold all my games aside from cftbl, Jd, sst so it turned out to be a good show again for me. Looks like the market is $2500 and under at PATZ. Good seeing you guys again hope to bring a nice custom T2 next year.
Mine is not currently even close to CQ. It had the crap played out of it this weekend. I may do a restore late summer so i can try to contact you then but it will only be done the way i want so you may not like that.
Swep1 combo just came in. Will be moving this in 3 weeks if anyone is interested. Im always open to trades as well. This is not a nucore system.
Its probably not CQ sitting in the box. Get all the switches adjusted properly, tighted down what they half tightened ect.. then maybe if no factory defects. Right now its NIB once you open it its HUO.
Just got in a Rocky and Bullwinkle if anyone is interested will be ready for sale at the end of the month.
Quoted from rockotaco1:
What goes around comes around Cory. People like you make the Michigan pinball scene absolutely miserable
Not if you don't let him affect you or your actions. Retaliation usually makes things worse. Flag the crap and move on. Lots of great people here in Michigan. A small group of guys can't sink this ship.
Back to pinball
I have a Street Fighter 2 Champion Edition i would part with. I do also have a multicart if interested as well. PM me if you are interested.
Quoted from marcand:
WOW! Such response...I am going to get the owner of said machine/multicart to this thread and let him post about it!
All my arcades are now sold so back to just pins to fix and the work is piling up! Good to meet you today Tom.
Quoted from Leachdude:
Looking to purchase something new soon. Would like to get a game I have not owned yet. If anyone has any leads on one of the following games in the Michigan area please let me know.
Star Trek Pro
Tales from the Crypt
Batman Dark Knight
I'll trade my Metallica Pro for a Metallica Premium plus cash, anyone?
We have a very nice Pinball Magic in Galesburg. Let me know if you would like to come and check it out. We are currently in a trade discussion with PM but nothing has been finalized yet.
You would be dealing with Ron Kruzman. We buy games together as we have skill sets that compliment each other and we get 2 sets of eyes on a game so nothing leaves unless both of us are happy with the game. Ron typically has several games for sale as well as his playfields and NOS or Repro clearcoating service. I stick to shopping and modding games and at some point we will be looking to provide a playfield swapping service.
You can contact Ron at [email protected]
He will be making all the sales and we do like trade deals as well as cash.
Quoted from Whysnow:
Rock >> what is currently available for pins?
We have several games but only a few that have been shopped with our stamp on them. We don't mind selling games that are not shopped as long as you guys know what you are getting.
We do have several more if Ron would like to add any and all at various stages and some working projects. I am currently doing a light restore on a STTNG for a friend and a TFTC and WCS94 is the next 2 in line. I will be starting TFTC this weekend while i wait on powdercoating for STTNG.
If you are looking for something specific let me know i can always keep an eye out.
Quoted from amkoepfer:
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
Nice pickup, fun game. Good luck on your hunt for a PF.
Xaver has 2 machines for sale. 1 is an outstanding example of Cyclone. grandrapids.craigslist.org link
Xaver is a great guy to deal with but you can also contact me about these machines if you prefer. He is on pinside but very rarely. I know he wouldn't mind trading as well.
No this is my old LAH that i had for a year and never opened lol. He will very rarely ever post on here but he is my partner in Rock Custom Pinball which not alot of people know, also my friend and brother inlaw.
I am stocked up on machines right now otherwise his Cyclone would be mine. I never opened LAH so not much interest for me in that.
Quoted from Pinwow:
But can we keep this thread to just Michigan games for sale? I think that was kind of the whole point
No problem with him in this thread if he is willing to cross the boarder to buy and sell games. Same goes for all our other brothers in neighboring states.
Anyone in the Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo area have an MMR or AMH i could do some mod testing on? Mods will be free.
Cyclone has sold, to me. way to nice to let it go by me.
SST was traded to a friend so that is not available.
Little update from whats going on at Rons compound.
MSF-$2400 OBO. THIS has been play tested and ready for sale. It came out fairly nice.
The Funhouse and CFTBL projects Ron had mentioned are not for sale we have decided that we are not going to sell project machines. We don't mind selling games unshopped but they need to be working 100%.
Rons RFM will be ready at the end of next weekend. I have 2 coils to replace and 3 switches. I also need to swap out my computer system for the stock computer and prism card. This will be sold as unshopped but i will be dropping in some new coil sleeves, coils, ect.. mostly mechanical.
Please no more emails or pms about projects. I am happy to answer questions about the games but Ron will be handling every sale.
They held their word on this. Sold it for the $2500 they asked and on site in person. I also tried to buy but it was first come gets it. Not many would stick to their word i am happy they did.
Yeah i don't get it either but still happy for him. Well and happy for me as i just bought it.
Quoted from myntric:
I'm new to collecting and looking to pickup a few machines before the cold sets in for me and the family. Looking to buy some machines in the $1500 range but willing to spend a little more depending on the condition and fun factor. Any thoughts, tips, etc.?
Had an option on Star Wars Episode 1 at PATZ and didn't do it and regret it. Don't want to make that mistake again.
Thats my Episode 1. Just traded it today! I have an f14 tomcat for you in your range if interested.
Also have a decent Rocky and Bullwinkle, not the one at PATZ and higher than your range. Looking for $2200 obo
Quoted from stretch2:
I think a partnership among pinball regions opens up new possibilities for sales and trades.
Ok, i am invading put down the pitchforks. Hope you guys are open to terminal to terminal shipping.
Quoted from tonycip:
The play field looks great but unfortunately the Whole game is only worth 1500. glws
Right, since the game is not worth much money nobody in there right mind should ever throw in a new playfield especially one professionally clearcoated and perfect. The price is outrageous, i mean they give playfields away right! And what does 50-100 hours of labor really cost $25 or so. Materials are probably free as well.
Well i am a big moron as i have an $1800 Kruzman TZ main and mini pf, getting a new cab, cab decals, plastics, ect... i will never see that money again but its actually ok as i love TZ and want a perfect one. I really hope you were joking but it struck a nerve so you get a ridiculous rant, yep i know.
Quoted from tonycip:
You mad bro!!.
I didn't do any name calling. In fact I said it looked great. If you feel that passionate about a title to do that for it that's great. It's going to be tough to find someone else who shares you feeling to spend more for a playfield then the whole game is worth. Most people do that becomes it's special to them..
No not mad, i ate a Snickers and removed the sand from my nether regions. Everything is good now. Really tired of hearing "but that cost more than i payed for the game."
I should have a BSD coming up for sale soon to kinda get back on topic here.
I think he was speaking to the rarity of that pf as only 100 Diamond plate playfields were made. Obviously that clear means nothing after a Rons work.
I am locking up Rons MSF it will be back for sale in a month or so.
I know I have been out of this for awhile now due to some personal things but the dust has settled and time to get back involved.
For Trade HUO Rob Zombie and an undocumented HUO LOTR both with less than 100 plays. Rob Zombie may go over 100 plays as it is set up at Kruzman's house and he is playing it. I am really looking for an MMR adding some cash if needed. Would also consider 2 or 3 for 1 deals. Not looking for em's. Machines will be at Kruzman's house in Galesburg.
Thanks Chris for the MMR! First thing I did was my Undercab kit! It's a little different than Williams...
Quoted from kruzman:
I have a HUO LOTR with 84 total plays on it. Looks right out of the box. Early run with all of the figurines. This game is so new, I would use the term minty if I didnt hate it and think it is a useless adjitive. The only mods are led lighting on the top side of the pf. If you question the 84 plays. come take a look, if you have any experience, you may think it is less. has the goodie bag, manual, original packing slip. has only been moved once since original purchase. Not a flaw, or wear. here is a link to the CL. I will drop a couple hundie for "cool" people. If you are not sure if you are "cool", you are not. full price. Here is a link to cl and pics
game is set up in the guest house, right next to the front door for easy load. Galesburg is right between kzoo and battle creek, I am less than 3 miles off the 94.
email if you have any interest or questions
Someday I will be cool, again today is not my day. As a way to help that...
I will give my under-cab kit as well as my new Interactive Backbox mod to the buyer of this pin.
Quoted from galaxian:
I am getting into the Pinball No-Glare glass business. With some help from a former DOW glass expert, I finally have a sample. *Made in Michigan is always a plus* The cost will be significantly less than the others and should be a far better product. Anyone have PDI/Invisiglass/Stern Anti-Glare on their games? I would like to do a side by side comparison.
I'll buy some to test!
Quoted from MichiganDad:
Etiquette question: My wife and I are newer to pinball. We are attending the show on Sunday, and on top of enjoying the collection we want to try some older machines we are considering purchasing (later).
Is it okay for two people to wait and use a machine and play two players together at the VFW or similar shows? I assume as long as the player is 1 per credit it is ok... I was put off by single players playing 4 games at a time at the show in Kalamazoo. Playing together allows us to compare notes real time.
Likely a stupid question, but I appreciate any insight.
It is perfectly acceptable for up to 4 people to play at once on a machine. 2 players can play 2 credits but not 4 credits if that makes sense. One game per person up to 4 people.
Choggqrd lives!!! 3 guys show up to pick up one machine and guess who is walking away with it. Corey, I know you read these threads so I would recommend you keep being the really nice guy you are because (I deleted this because I don’t think threats of bodily harm are allowed).
Steve, sorry you wasted your time as well man. Sucks it was so close to you too.
Corey, bring the game to Clay or someone competent to repair before you sell. Hopefully you can find a hobby you actually can be a part of and really enjoy vs. messing with ours.
Yes it was.
Quoted from tamoore:
Uhhh... I thought this was the non scammer edition????????
Corey didn’t do anything wrong. The seller has no integrity. It’s just easy to blame Corey Hoggard.
Looking forward to seeing you in July. I will have a PF for you.
Quoted from Dayhuff:
THINKING about selling my Cactus Canyon #349. I also have a new Mirco playfield, not installed and a recently decaled cabinet for it that is brand new that I'd sell with or without the game but not until the buyer of the game refuses it or the playfield. The game has some new ramps and other parts already installed. Plays good, no LED's.
Looking for $10K for the game itself and $1000 for the playfield and $700 for the cabinet.
That is a pretty sweet cabinet. You have pictures? I never took any.
Quoted from kruzman:
There is a Black rose, Mousin around, Beautiful ToM, Touch down EM, and a adams family redemption game (I think that is what they are called, you win tickets) That are being stored at my compound while for sale by chrisrock/travis (Rock914).
They just came in last night except the ToM which I just broke down. The touchdown is super nice and clean and in the living room waiting to get set up, I am told it works 100%. I dont know much about the rest of them, but I will slowly get to them. you can contact me or just contact chris, because right now I dont know the prices. I go to bed pretty early and I was out of it last night.
also I just finished a nos AMAZING SPIDERMAN pf that I am going to sell. I reglued all of the inserts because of the age, and this is a great time to do so, because even if they were not loose, they will be soon, and you dont want that after investing all of the time and money. All of the inserts key lines had to be painted because of the cracks between the insert and wood, plus the usual stuff. The back is painted with the stock grey but I used oil enamel to soak in as well as repel dust and finger prints.
price is 1575. Even though I sanded the surface down level after the last coat, then wet block sanded down to 3000 grit and polished all day (huge pf) then cleaned all of the polish out of the cut out edges, I may sand the dame thing down, and reclear it. if I do the price is 1850. Its super nice but it could be better. Its one of those things that I cant see the imperfection until it is so highly polished. after 5 full games, the things that bother me, will be gone.
I have a really nice project game that I will sell with the pf also, but I would like the original pf out of that one to restore. Its not a deal breaker if not, but thats is my best case senerio. I will only sell the game with the pf.
Now all the emails make sense lol. Mousin Around is MINE and not for sale unless a really good price or trade is presented.
Over the next week or 2 I will get Black Rose cleaned and working unless it needs to go to Mike for repairs. Don’t we have an Earthshaker and maybe some others around Ron? Once cleaned and ready Ron will have prices.
Quoted from pacman11:
Machine - For Sale
Fully shopped/refurbished “Nice looking and playing Sopranos. Game plays great with no issues. I've added premium Leds to a lot of the playfield. Playfield has been waxed and cleaned. Plastics look good with...”

OMG!!! You are the Choggard aren’t you? Why did you start this account before you deleted Choggard?
Lol, Hi Cory! I see you have some positive reviews now (CJ) lol. Good! So, since you may no longer be a scammer you can post on this thread? If I am wrong let me know so I can publicly apologize.
kyledm5 you mistakenly listed this as located an hour north of Pittsburgh. If that was not a mistake... Are you offering the outstanding Michigan folks free delivery? Joking aside, you are in the wrong thread. Please keep future ads to the market place, or your specific regions for sale threads. Thank you and good luck with your sale.
I personally don’t mind seeing ads from anything within say 2.5hrs of Ann Arbor. Pittsburgh, not so much. We see the market place ads.
Quoted from TwoHeartedMale:
You took more time to respond to this then it took to read his first post. 2.5 hours won't even get me half way up our state. So do you suggest we make special threads for each region of MI?
And your point is? I would suggest reading what I posted again. I am pretty sure I said (personally I don’t mind seeing...) I was suggesting nothing. If you want a suggestion I can give you one.
I am lost to the purpose of this thread now I guess. I thought it was about stuff for sale in Michigan. Do I (Personally) want to see an Avatar for sale in California, a Transformers for sale in PA on this (What’s for sale in Michigan thread), nope. Do I want to see pins for sale in Chicago on this thread, yep! My opinion, that is all.
Quoted from BillySastard:
Choggard, I mean Pacman posts his stuff everywhere. I always know when he has something for sale because the Michigan, Chicago, and Indiana for sale threads are all bumped to the top at the same time.
Since you brought up Choggard... Why does he get to just change his name on Pinside? This bothers me. I feel stupid I had no idea Pacman11 was Choggard until very recently. I don’t think that is right at all. He should live with his name and own the things he has done to people. Does anyone disagree? If so why?
Also I will have a very nice Tom for sale soon. Looking for a TZ as well.
