Discovered the grocery getter (4Runner Trail edition) is the perfect pin hauler. Sliding cargo tray with a 400 lb capacity

I actually have my sights set on a fire! And a diner project. I’m not sure I will be able to pull off tomorrow that hopefully they will be in the works shortly

Picked this one up last weekend at the Northwest Pinball show. My other EM (El Dorado) was getting lonely and needed some companionship. Thanks to Chris K. for being such a great seller!

I feel like I’m posting too many times in this thread but I have to put this somewhere. The Tee’d Off was sold to me as being dead... it was actually just a fuse.

Gotta love when you stumble upon an easy fix like this! Enjoy the game. It gets a lot of hate but I actually like it.

It seems like a cool game. I had not had the chance to play it before. It still has some issues to line out. No control lamps work and a couple coils aren’t firing but I am super pleased with the machine

Just picked up this LOTR to go with my other two. I've always been a Bally/Williams fan and never thought I'd be rocking a strictly Stern lineup, but here you go. Stern can be hit or miss, but these there are hits IMHO.

Extremely nice brother! That POTC C.E. It is definitely beautiful man! That Pinball it is amazing, I love that Davy Jones translite and the rotten green around... it is simply Imposing!

This one was delivered on Tuesday. She has been on my list for a while. She is rough now but will get the CPR treatment and a cabinet repaint. I think the best thing about this one is that it came with an original manual and schematic. A project for sure.

She will find out some day. And then you will get to know Karma. She buys something expensive.

On the Spooksville I had, I had to go in through the rear of the machine, tilt the playfield and there were two clasps underneath. It wasn’t easy.

Not to derail, is that a "The Chicken Machine" behind the Sea Hunt? I have one and have replaced the capacitors on the sound card.

Got a text from a friend that a close friend of his had a bunch of games for sale. I would get first chance to see the collection and make offers on my choices.

I arranged for a trip a few days later as the seller was out of town until then and it was a long drive
My wife and I left at 3:30 PM and got home at 2:30 AM, in bed around 3AM (ugh) with a total of 5 pins in tow (yay). That's the most number of pins I've ever bought at once!
Iron Man was a purchase for my buddy, not me

The seller was a super nice guy with an awesome collection

Picked up:
Pirates w/color DMD, insert LEDs, Pinball Pro speakers and mods
Simpsons PBP w/color DMD insert LEDs, Pinball Pro speakers and mods
X-Men Magneto LE w/color DMD, Pinball Pro speakers
Aerosmith Pro
Iron Man

I was wondering the same. Looks like Iron Man got the treatment too.

Ha same here

Did you grab one of these from Michigan? There was one on FB this week but I couldn't get a straight answer from the seller on if it actually worked to gamble on a 4 hour drive.

Grabbed them locally. I only need one. I have one with a broken door (you can see it in the picture) that is also missing the chicken for 100

Good eyes guys. No idea why that was done. I took a real close look to see if maybe it covered some damage or maybe was painting over some other writing but nothing, nada.

Even tried looking under a bright light but still nothing there ...

Emporer Ming was awaiting me today. . . of course he was awaiting down a steep flight of stairs and around several tight turns (my finds usually are ) !

Stern used to do that with most/all of their machines as far as I know. I think all of my older ones had that.

Out of the factory NIB? Why the hell would they do that to a brand new game? I’ve seen a ton of IM’s that didn’t have any spray paint on the cab...NIB and used.

I know some operators used to do that. For what reason, I have no idea. These games don’t look routed though, especially given where you got them. Lloyd?

Where’s Vid when you need him...

Maybe had an operators stamp or ID number on them, covered with the spray paint. Just a guess. If it was a black stamp or marker might not be able to see anything hidden by the spray paint. Wouldn't worry about it .

I’ve had plenty of HUO Stern games with the black spray under and sometimes inside the cab. I have no idea to why, but this is not unique.

Seen it on numerous games. I think my Godzilla has black under it as well.

Ok - thinking about it I guess I have seen this previously too. Shoulder shrug as to reason and frequency. No big deal though.

Just brought this guy home! It'll clean up nicely, the front hasp hole needs some cleaning up, but overall it's pretty nice. The cab isn't faded like it looks in the picture, no wrinkles in the topper either. This is the only time I have ever landed a machine by asking about a game in the background of an ad, worked out great!

I just want to know how you guys find these pins. Local ads seem to be so few and far between.
