Was the Stars from CL? That one was a good deal. Plastics look a little orange instead of red on yours.

No, actually it was a local unadvertised deal. It does have a really nice pf, just need to get it all set up.

Quoted from Atlgills:

A friend called me and informed me that someone he knew was cleaning out a warehouse and it had a few pins in it that were going to be smashed and thrown in the dumpster if no one picked them up that day. This is what I collected. 11 total. Yesterday was a good day my friends!

That is just crazy! Nice score!

#1157 4 years ago

Last week it was x's and o's and south park.

Today it was scared stiff #2, cftbl, and Bram stokers #2.

Not officially at home yet, but these three are restored, led'd, complete! This pic is from the shop where they were restored and will be delivered on Tuesday.

It is.

#1171 4 years ago

Agree...

Surprised no-one has come up w/ artwork decals for it.

Wish I had never sold mine, now that I have 8 Ball Deluxe again....would look nice next to each other.

#1172 4 years ago

I just dragged home a second Stern Lectronamo. I'll probably combine the best of the two to make a good one and okay one. Both were routed, but this one is the better of the two I now have.

At some point, a previous owner replaced the MPU with an alltek.

I thought I was the only one loosely looking for one of these
Nice grab, can't hurt having 2

I wasn't actually actively looking for another one, but I'll pick up pretty much anything if the price is right.

Same here, I run out of room, and then grab 2 or 3 more

I'm currently working on a Laser Cue.

It's my 8th duplicate.

Yikes, that's quite a number of duplicates. Not all at once, I hope

That is funny, but I've been lucky in that regard. My wife would never sell anything if it was up to her.

I picked up a second City Slicker for parts even though the other one isn't running yet. Have you found a cure for the sickness yet?

no money is the key, or nothing to barter with

No reason to laugh, Sharkeys is a pretty solid game, fun to jam on for a few months.......If you don't need to swap out $ on pins its a nice one to keep.

#1188 4 years ago

Picked up this Sorcerer on Saturday for $1000. It is in EXCELLENT condition and is a perfect candidate for restoration. I'm leaving the incandescents in the GI, but am swapping for LEDs everywhere else. I think I'm gonna put a LED OCD in there too. Already ordered some new flipper frames from Cliffy. If anyone knows of a good deal on plastics, please let me know! I'm so excited!

Great score! That playfield looks very impressive for an unrestored Sorcerer, especially at $1000. Looks like you even got all three pop bumper caps intact! I just paid $950 for mine with a perfect backglass, very nice cabinet and plastics, but notable playfield wear.

+1 for the LED OCD, the only way to use LEDs yet preserve the beautiful post-game insert light show, which is totally reliant on the slow fade time of incandescent bulbs and would presumably look like blinking crap with uncontrolled LEDs. I'd also vote strongly for "warm white" bulbs in this game, the harsher "natural" or "sunlight" variety would be all wrong IMO.

Thanks! One of the pop bumpers is chipped on the side, but it's on the far side of the player so it's really not noticeable. I'm considering trading them out with caps that look more like a ruby/gem, though. I think that fits the theme a little bit better.

I bought enough warm white bulbs for everything, but also bought enough natural white bulbs to experiment with underneath the white inlays. I'll be picking up that LED OCD next time I'm feeling affluent, haha. I just bought LEDs and the missing decals for now.
