Dutch re-import MSF.
I am not bringing it home, it is being brought to me by a fellow Pinsider in a few hours!!
So far dealing with Kevin has been awesome. I look forward to adding the JM to my collection today.
I am also picking up a HUO but cabinet scratched Monopoly today on the cheap. Photos once I get it. My Frankenstein with DMD Extender is leaving for a new home today as well. Pinsider in Columbus is picking it up and another local Pinsider may be stopping to buy my Ms. Pacman multicade and a CL guy and Injust finished a deal for him to buy my Turbo Outrun (heavier than a pin!!!)
It is a crazy gaming day
I said goodbye to my MSF and ended the day with these 2 in the Gameroom.
I have 1 pin more than I have space right now!
And just when you think you can sell a game and drive home with an empty van, you stupidly check Pinside to see what's for sale in the MD,VA region because you are going to be driving home to Cleveland the next day and end up snagging an RBION. Now to load up the family and head back to CLE before tip off! Let's go Cavs!
Picked up Friday evening and dropped off at my buddies house. He and I spent most of Saturday tearing it down and bringing this WPT back to life. Needs a few lamp sockets replaced still as I ran out but it is 99.5% complete now.
Tons of switch issues and mechanical problems all of which were taken care of. Before in its previous home and after we got it back together and lit up shots.
Quoted from Colsond3:
Game looks great after some work Bos. Did they really have incandescents in that game still? That game screams for LED's.
Incandescent bulbs everywhere except for the back box which had a LED strip zip tied to the CFL which was disconnected either due to a dead bulb, starter, ballast, tombstones or all of the above. All new parts were ordered to remove the hackery!
Grab this late in the afternoon. Got busy and have not gotten it inside or setup yet.
Our son's babysitter's mom wanted it gone when she heard I was in to pinball. Needs some work as something as yet to be determined is cooking some transistors but it is in excellent physical condition as it has been in her basement since 1997
Quoted from dmbjunky:
Whoa that sounds like a deal. I don't want to ask the price but did you make out like a bandit?
Well I did pay her for it but the batteries had leaked and there was damage and it was dirty and needs to be shopped.
Maybe not Bandit but perhaps I made out like the wheel man.
I have already replaced the M6802 and socket
The 7402 and added a socket and replaced some transistors but I have a dead coil that needs replacing and it is some odd data east thing that is $30 from Marcos.
I dropped about $200 in parts tonight.
Yesterday's delivery. I was so busy cleaning the garage I have only setup one so far.
I know most people don't care for this one but the cabinet had zero fade, matching numbers boards to cabinet, no burn on connectors, ultra bright DMD, and has a near perfect playfield. Minor switch adjustment in progress and then a little LED treatment coming up.
Faded to death but cabinet is really solid with a really great playfield. Can't wait to con a friend in to helping me bring it inside so I can start tearing it down.
Picked this up the other day. Needs some love but the parts are already on their way. I did a preliminary topside tear down and cleaned and waxed the playfield. Came out pretty nice. New boat playfield will be ordered and possibly spring for a new CPR playfield if someone has one at a reasonable price they decided not to install.
Well it's all there but the head was decapitated!!
I think I can make a go of it at $700
Yeah strip twist solder shrink will be the methodology. Taking a pause to take a trip to the national zoo with my family. I just happen to be in Baltimore this weekend. Anyone local want to help put this sucker back together tonight with me and my father in law?
We have beer in Ellicott City!
Ps. Playfield is not that great but hey if I can get it playing and keep it under $1200 I am considering it a winner.
Quoted from Colsond3:
A Getaway for $700 is definitely worth a little hassle. Hopefully it's not too problematic and everything matches up. Still don't understand people sometimes...that person didn't realize that everything unplugs, unclips or can be detached before breaking out the snips?? The things we come across in this hobby never cease to amaze me.
Apparently they did not. 20 wires to go it taking a break to run some errands. Hopefully it will minimally power up and I can figure out what else is wrong with it. For sure the driver board needs new headers for the GI and the harnesses will be redone with molex. That won't happen until next weekend though as I snagged this game in Baltimore while visiting family, and almost all of my pinball stuff is back in Cleveland.
I am not sure I will be able to keep this one. My 5 year old already freaked out about it being too scary.
Quoted from Colsond3:
Haven’t seen you around much. Thanos has your infinity stone...err I mean your Welcome to the Stern Army ring.
Really though congrats. Good titles. I would have gone with Maiden over GB though
Been really busy with work. I am on regularly but not posting too much.
Maiden just isn’t a theme I can put in the house. GOTG with Cleland’s sound mix is pretty amazing and my 6 year old loves it already.
X-men LE Magneto #248
Decked out with mods. Only need a little adjusting post shipping and to find the magneto ball gate screw that came loose in order to get it playing 100% after its freight journey.
Time to rearrange the lineup to get all the Marvel pins together. X-men, Deadpool and Guardians.
TZ in a home for 23 years. Dirty but functional. Matching serial number boards. Playfield is in excellent condition. Coindoor doesn’t have a mark on it and the light board is still white!
Batteries clearly leaked but no board damage.
GI connectors burned but have now been replaced.
My neighbor, seen below, went with me to pick it up a whopping 3.8 miles from my house.
I pulled it out and surprisingly there isn’t any sign of damage on the board at all!
Let’s just call it lucky I guess.
