Me and Jessie Picked up some Team One’s for Ken’s Wizard conversion! Headed to Ohio soon!
We made a fun stop at Round1 to play some games and now she wants a Deadpool... as if my collection isn’t enough to choose from!

Quoted from Foxxstone_80:

I told her 2500 would have been a fair asking price...pinside estimate is 2400-2800. Yeah she was pretty bummed. This wasn't a machine I normally would go after but for the price I would've loved to take it home, oh well. About the 3rd time this year I missed out on a super low priced machine...I need to change my alert settings or something.

Lol, 2k for Street Fighter II is insane especially in Iowa! They sit all the time for that money. It’s just an awful game.
Price was fine!

Felt the call of the wild and picked up an all-in-one Big Buck Hunter Reloaded! Unfortunately it was way too tall, heavy and scary to safely get down the stairs to my basement (very narrow landing at top of stairs), so it now classes up my home office

I've only seen one sold in Iowa in the last 2 yrs and it sold within one day at 2k. Not saying it's a great game, but definitely worth more than $800.

That Terrific Lake is sweet! What is it a re-theme of?

Looks awesome!!!! Over the last couple of weeks I figured out I cannot move this through the doorway and staircase into my basement so its not in the cards for me anymore. UGH! ah well. Another pin wont hurt. Ill get the BH when i get a house with a garage

Where do you guys get those white sit down Japanese arcade cabinets from?

I'd look into the panorama unit, as it's not all in one and believe you can take the monitor rails off so it's not so dang tall? I'd confirm with a distro, I used KingPinGames and Christopher was lovely to deal with. Had I known I'd have went for that one!

And I got that Candy clone like 15 years ago on craglist, sadly the monitor busted in a recent move so until I find a replacement it's dead in the water

Ill check that out. But that one still weighs a TON. That's what I'm nervous about. Its already nerve wracking as hell moving a pin up and down.

Worst case you could get movers! BUT, without the monitor I think the panorama would be pretty close if not lighter than a pin and would work the same with a handtruck etc... my problem with the all in one if it's so tall I can't tip it back far enough to get leverage on the hand truck in my tiny landing @ top of stairs.

But man, this thing is SO fun and worth the extra effort for sure

I'm sure it is, I played it for the first time months ago and just keep thinking about it. Yeah when I'm ready ill ask my distributor more questions about taking it apart and whatnot. Right now I'm laser focused on a RUSH or CCr. Then BH!....wifes going to kill me.

Saw this for sale in a restarunt earlier this week and the timing couldn't have been better, having recently come into some cash. I decided to take it home. First pin for me, so far it's been so much fun to have in the house. The guy who sold it to me said everyone says they stop at one... we'll see if I've found a new pain in my wallet!

If we all just stopped at one I don’t think there would be a pinside.

Stumbled into an Eight Ball Deluxe this week 6 minutes from my house. Sometimes things just work out.

It usually stops at one. “One and done” as they say in the pinball hobby.

Congrats on the first pin! It all starts with one and before long you’ll be pricing escaleras.

When I started collecting I convinced myself that I liked Ritchie pins more than I liked Lawlor pins, but at some point I noticed that I had 1 Ritchie game an 5 Lawlor games.

And Whirlwind is the best pinball game ever made. It's the pinnacle. There are good before and after, but it nailed what pinball is perfectly. Congrats!

Good when it is playing perfectly, I suppose. I have yet to play one that was. So many of these in the wild and at shows play like sluggish dogs.

The upper right flipper is under-powered, but it forces you to make a great shot. There are no gimmies. I suppose a lot of them are beat to hell, because they were played too much.

Thank you
I also think that I prefer flowy games, thus I do not play TZ a lot at the moment
Curious how Whirlwind plays as I never played it before. It showed up locally and one has to be fast and grab what you can get
