Anybody got a roadshow they're willing to part with?
Thanks,

Sure, but it will require your bro getting involved in the trade (pretty sure you know what I am talking about )

Also, that yellow trim job on Dr. Dude is AWEFUL!!!!

Quoted from tamoore:

Josh and Chris are friends of mine, and are true pinball addicts.

Most pinheads are good people IRL, but it is pretty sad all the BS they seem to pull.

Things like trying to take advantage of noobs (insane prices on junk), the buy and then complain stuff to other members (while threatening to try and get the honest seller blacklisted), constant spamming of clists everywhere, and over priced crap stuff, all while bragging of how many games they have flipped make for pretty shitty friends IMHO.

If they were my actual friends then I would talk to them about all the shit they are pulling to try and give them some good prespective from a true hobbyist like yourself.

Quoted from initfo:

Haha great, between the savvy vets and the scammers throughout the state, I'll be lucky as hell to get a machine for a fair price as a newbie.

Seems to be that way everywhere (though it does seem to be a bit tougher in MI)

Quoted from Dayhuff:

I'm ball parking these all together in the $50K bracket. I agree that selling one at a time would be the way to go since it would be easier to find 13 buyers in this case rather then one buyer who's all in. Anyways, best of luck with the sale and hopefully you can work it out with someone.

Is this an offer of 50k John or just a WAG of where you value them or would be a buyer?

Here's a deal for someone on a project machine .... I just took this 1985 Gottlieb ROCK system 80B machine in for a trade towards another machine. It is complete machine, but NOT working. I do not know what the problem is, but I need to made some room.
I need $250.00 cash and carry for it, otherwise it's going to be parted out to make room.

so bummed I missed this one. Rock (or encore; yeah right ) is one on my short list for a long time.

Huge thanks to the generous pinsider that reached out right away offering storage for me till I got it! Very stand up and kind of you. Hopefully another one will come my way some day.

Congrats to whomever scored and if you decide it is not for you, then please keep me in mind.

#787 3 years ago
Quoted from amkoepfer:

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!

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately that is about twice the price I would want to be for a completely working one.

This one was a great price at $250 and non-working which is honestly how I prefer them. I find I have more fun fixing than playing most days. Don't get me wrong, I love playing but when I fix I win much more often.

This machine is to pretty for that .
Someone step up and buy this,save it from a bar route .

putting it on route may actually save it and a possibility it will be better maintained on route than in a home collection.

I can assure you route it will get more plays/enjoyment than in a home and definately introduce more people to the game than a home environment.

#1971 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinwow:

How about $2200 for the fire!
They dont come up often and this one is nice.
I sold my last fire for $1800ish and that was just the standard production, this is essentially the LE you're getting here for not that much more cash

The standards seem to be around 1200 to 1400 for fully Working and good shape.

Not sure what all is different on this version? Different cab and trim?

Quoted from Msch:

Looking for a <2k dmd...thinking jd, jm, dm

rare to find most fo those sub 2k in todays world unless really beat.

#2193 2 years ago
Quoted from Collin:

Nah. I bought/sold/traded all three of those games in the past year or so, all between $1400-2100

IN the past 18months I have bought all 3 and I search around quite a bit before buying to find fair deals.

JM > 2100. Spent another $400 refurbishing it to bring it up to snuff
DM > 2100. Spent ~$500 (part of that being rechrome the handles) to bring it up to snuff
JD > 2100. Will take another $400 to bring it up to snuff but likely found a nicer one to replace it so will just pass it along.

It is pretty rare to fine those games for sub 2k.

JM is the most likely to be found under 2k and can still be found for 1800ish but plan to have bad fade and need some love.

I will say that I will take all 3 of those games in duplicate if you find them in working order for 1400! Guessing lots of other people will also

#2194 2 years ago
Quoted from tamoore:

I've had all three. The demo man I had sold for $2150, the Dredd ended up selling for 2700. The JM, I don't really know as it was part of a multi machine trade. Somewhere around 2k, though.

these are more like the real world prices I commonly see. I do know Colin tends to find lots of screaming deals though.

#2196 2 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

How much of that cash is spent on LEDs?

maybe $90 tops. I used the Comet frosted 2 SMDs which are .59 (or cheaper if you stock up on black friday sale)

#2201 2 years ago
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.

#2243 2 years ago
Quoted from CraZyMuffin:

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.

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!

#2246 2 years ago

Yeah for 9/5 I'd be thinking aboot it too.

#2421 2 years ago

are any of these container games?

#2424 2 years ago
Quoted from pmWolf:

Road Show, Ripley's, and the Shadow have, at one point in their life, been in a container.
The others have not.
(Not that it makes any difference).
Was there a specific one you were interested in? I mean, that's a pretty long haul from Wisconsin...
Pete

I will be over in your next of the woods for VFW show so looking more actively at MI in the coming months.
The ones I am interested were in the container and I am not interested in the container games. I have seen a few of them that have made their way to WI and to me it definately makes a difference.

#2428 2 years ago
Quoted from pmWolf:

To me, that's a dangerous and misleading message.

I have some container games from back in the day that are great. I have also had domestic games that are crap. You are correct that the entire spectrum can be found in both cases.

I meant specifically the container games I have seen that have come from the most recent MI containers. Maybe I have just seen the bottom of the barrel but what I have seen has been pretty rough IME. Maybe only the turds make their way across lake Michigan

#2446 2 years ago
Quoted from pmWolf:

And where is this game located?

I assume IN.

At least based on his location.

#2456 2 years ago
Quoted from cfh:

OK I found the invoice. I have another one somewhere that is $850 worth of repairs or something crazy like this too. I don't mean to throw anybody under the bus, but I thought that this was just nuts. Something just doesn't seem right over there now that Jeff or has left the store
image_(resized).jpg

what exactly does 'shop out' mean? If they strip the entire pf and rebuild everything then that is a hell of a deal IMO.

#2464 2 years ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Please don't start the age old "What does a shop out mean" discussion.

lol.

I just wondered what level of tear down they actually do. I have ocassionally taken on jobs that I call a full refurbish but some may call a 'shop job'. I strip the entirety of the topside while cleaning, polishing, rebuilding, fixing hacks, replacing broken bits, etc... I also take off the majority of the bottomside and rebuild and clean 100% of all mechs. This typical shop job takes me ~100-120 hours and I charge a reasonable hourly fee for my time when I do take these jobs on. $400 for that would be cheap in my book.

If anyone in MI finds a pin in Madison area in the next month and needs tranport I can likely assist when coming for VFW.

I will be traveling over for the VFW show in the minivan and currently have room for 2 on the way over. I will be traveling early on Thursday May 12th and would need the pin to me prior so it is hassle free from my end. I can stop on the route to meet and get you your pin.

I will also likely have my Tx-Sector available for trade if anyone on route is looking and has a Frontier or Viking they are looking to part with.

yup, same one I bought from you a few years back. Nice solid game, all ground mods installed, tastefully LED'd, fresh rubber, flips rebuilt, and playing great.

I found a nicer one (cosmetically) with a near mint cabinent. I finally got the new one working after it had been hacked badly and was in need of some new boards. Since I got the second one working, I don't need 2 of them I have to admit I have thought of keeping them both and linking them like NBA FB, lol. Was thinking of linking the teleport shot from one into the tilt of the other. Then you could duke it out head to head.

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.

Quoted from kruzman:

Hilton, thats a super nice offer, I just dont trust the shagon wagon any more. she aint what she used to be. I guess I better start thinking of what would be a good pin vehicle. $$$$$$$

no worries Ron. I would love to grab that tag team (played it last time I was over and dug it then). Get yourself a new vehicle so you can haul pins. heck, I bet someone with a big order of pfs needing work would trade you their spare ride. Could work out a win/win.

Quoted from Dayhuff:

You two could always meet up here on the 5th. Its a win win for all.

I need to make it to your party, but unfortunately this wont be the year.

#3399 2 years ago

If anyone is heading this way in the somewhat near future and wants to make some transport money then let me know. Scoop up the tagteam and bring her over. If anyone wants to ride the cargo ship across Lake michigan, it is super fun
