Let's start a thread where we can post our most recent pick-ups! I love hearing stories of machines and deals people made and found, so let's post all of the pictures here. I'll start! It is still sitting in my car!

Quoted from mollyspub:

looks like the sideart isnt faded.. nice ! what did you pay for it ?

To be honest, it is still in the back of my car and I haven't really inspected the machine much. It was a deal that I couldn't pass up, even if the condition is lacking and needing work. I will update when I get it out and can take a better look at it!

Quoted from lyonsden:

Picked these up two months ago. Were sitting in a trailer for 5+ years. Have three of the four working now. Well, mostly working. Have Star Wars in play testing now. Much more work to be done over the summer.

Quoted from dudah:

The CL gods finally gave me something. Searching super far away from my house I found a craigslist ad for a garage sale saying they have "pinball machines". I send an email asking which ones (almost always EM's), I get a phone number for the owner. She had a T3 that was pretty much retail, but a players condition ES for a VERY fair price. 13 hours/600 miles later I'm thrilled to have gotten this! Badly needs a shop job, have a bad opto on the dropdown target, but otherwise looks great for it's age! Backglass needs to be sealed but isn't too bad.
I'm finally overwhelmed with projects where hopefully I'll keep off of CL for a while now.

This fell into my lap this weekend.... She's pretty. Been in a non-pinball person's home since "early 90's" and by the condition it sits in without any work, I believe them. That shooter lane will look brand new when I clean it up

Quoted from firefighter:

Space Shuttle made a 420 mile one way trip to the couple cave and fits in its parking space very well.

Did you grab this from someone in Chicago? I went out and checked this machine out when it was for sale by the original owner. We shook on a deal as I didn't have help to carry it out of the basement, but I guess the seller found someone else right after me to take it. I remember seeing those homemade metal ramp flaps

#3737 3 years ago
Quoted from firefighter:

No I picked this up in St Louis

Interesting. It's definitely the same machine I checked out from the original owner about 8 months ago. Same small wear spot near the bottom right and metal ramp flaps that the original owner created himself. Funny how fast/far these machines move in such a short amount of time!

Through networking with friends, I got in contact with an ex-Bally employee who worked from 1979-1981. He was a sound engineer and worked on Frontier. He had these two pieces of pinball "stuff" left from his time at Bally, which I struck a deal on. I don't know how many Bigfoot backglasss (actually plexiglass) were actually made, but there can't be many....

#4301 3 years ago
Quoted from BeaglePuss:

Holy Macaroni, that's one hell of a find. That's only the second BF backglass I've ever seen.
Did he happen to mention any existence of BF machines?

Nope. He never came across the actual game or playfields. He said this was just hanging out at Bally and was given to him after the game was declined for production.

#4856 3 years ago

This game must have had 100 games total played on it in its' life. Seller said they had it in their family from when it was taken out of the box to when I bought it. Also picked up a No Good Gofers that's in the same condition as this one. I am literally bursting at the seams, so this one might be on the chopping block shortly. Literally cannot find a knick on the cabinet or play field to even mention. No insert wear/lifting anywhere - not even on the straight jacket insert, which seems to always have insert edging.

#5055 3 years ago

Over the course of about a month, I ended up picking up all of these games and had them in storage in Chicago. This weekend, I rented a 6x12 trailer, and packed it tight with 8 machines. About 3 weeks ago I picked up a HUO NGG, TSPP x2, LOTR, and just this last weekend I picked up an original MM, Scared Stiff, Theatre of Magic, and Addams Family. I am tapped out physically, and especially, financially!!!

When I picked up B/W collection, we realized the staircase going up from the basement was way too tight to fit a game up. There are firsts for everything, and this time was hauling machines through a window....

Thanks to an awesome Pinsider who volunteered his time to road trip with me, I picked up this nice, original Flash Gordon from a tattoo shop. This is my first real dip into "older games," and I'm scared it will turn into a new obsession.

Quoted from Micky:

Nice pickup....congratulations!

Quoted from albummydavis:

Congrats.. You just picked up one of the greatest games ever. And that pf is one of the best original ones I've ever seen.

Thank you! I'm so looking forward to diving in and possibly picking up more from this era. Everything is original. I think it's super nice for it's age!

#5655 3 years ago

I picked this up awhile ago but never took pictures of it. I was installing a slam ramp protector on it this evening, and snapped a few pictures. Picked this up from a person who said they unboxed it brand new, and from the condition, I believe them. This is probably the nicest condition game in my collection. Look at that shooter lane! It makes me scared to play it!!

That's criminal! How many plays?

I really should have looked at the audits when I picked it up, but I removed the batteries and reset the audits when I set it up. It couldn't have been many - this machine looks and plays like it was turned off its' whole life.

Andromeda! I saw pictures of it, and it looked super mint. Good score!

also, since you saw pics I am guessing it was offered to you and you passed?

Quoted from Grayman_EM:

No offense Ballypin towards you. But I still have not heard a word from him and to be honest it is just plain manners IMO to answer your PM's even if the machine is sold. True I didn't bid the full amount, but the post was originally from a year ago. If he wanted more (and this is to everyone out here) just ask. The least you could do is say no and I would have come up on my price. Would I buy another pin from him even if it was on my want list? Most likely not because in the end YOUR WORD is all we have. Peace

In all honesty, and im guilty of this, sellers take the path of least resistance. When I get a PM from someone asking me a million questions, and another guy saying he'll take the machine and can pick it up the next day, I'm going with guy #2. I'm in this hobby because it's entertainment - not for additional stress : /

Bought a jackbot completely blind (seller sent me one picture of the machine wrapped and on its back in his garage). Had a friend pick it up and when he dropped it off, he noticed all of the backbox boards were red. I haven’t looked underneath the playfield, but this might be a prototype?

#10819 1 year ago
Quoted from finman2000:

Did you buy it from another collector, or somehow score this in the wild from a non pinball person wanted to clear out a basement? Either way, great find!!

Came from a non collector (pictures posted were from the seller). Story is that he owned a business that supplied electronic components to game plan. Game plan put this machine at his office as part of their ‘testing.’ Somehow, he took ownership and brought it home where it sat until I bought it

#10821 1 year ago
Quoted from mbaumle:

I'm glad that it's now in the hands of someone who's passionate about preserving it! You never know what's going to happen with games that are in the hands of non-collectors.

In all honesty, I don't have the room anymore to keep it, so it will probably be up on the chopping block when I get around to it. I would love to keep it given the crazy history Space constraints are a bummer

Quoted from NoQuarters:

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.

A VERY nice Space Invaders followed me home today. Not sure if it is a keeper, but the art is amazing to look at.
