Just finished a 15 hr drive back from Grand Ole Gameroom Expo in Nashville with LOTR in the back of the Q7. Found that backbox had to be disconnected to fit inside the height of the loading window. Luckily could just remove the bolts inside the backbox and not have to disconnect any of the maze of wires. Mirror blades prevented removal on the other end of the brackets. Where there's a will, there's a way. Many thanks to a couple fellow pinheads for the help!!

Quoted from robertg130:

Price here in PR runs little lower than USA

Quoted from Whysnow:

if you want to coordinate a container shipped to the US full of these games, I am sure you could make a nice chunk of spare cash and make some US buyers happy.
PM me if you are interested.

Ummm... you realize that PR is part of the US, right?

Quoted from comment23:

You still have to pay import duties for items brought into the US from PR.

Please re-read that page you linked to. It talks about paying import duties for items brought INTO PR. It goes on to say lower down the page that "As part of the Customs Territory of the USA, Puerto Rico participates in the Free Trade Agreements signed by the U.S. with a number of countries." In other words... if you bring stuff into PR (from Europe for example), you pay import duties just like you would if you brought them into THE REST OF THE US. You would NOT have to pay import duties a second time when shipping from PR to THE REST OF THE US. Just like you wouldn't have to pay import duties if you shipped from Oklahoma to Rhode Island. Granted, PR isn't a state (yet and maybe never), but it does fall under most of the same rules.

Sorry for continuing to follow the thread diversion, let's get back to playing pinball and discuss world trade in another thread.

Quoted from MAJRob:

My first NiB! Delivered today and is now adjusting to the climate difference before I boot her up. Don't want condensation to mess anything up. Waiting till tomorrow to get the first game in on the Hobbit Black Arrow SE!!!

Dude... you have WAAAYYYY more willpower than I'll ever have!! But seriously, I admire and agree with your rationale.

Quoted from comment23:

As someone who is still new to the world of pinball, my ultimate grail pin followed me home today:

I'm continually amazed at the amount of people who describe this pin as their "grail" pin. For me, it was near the tops on my list, but I didn't realize it was my grail until after I owned it. I can't count the number of times I get goose bumps while playing this game and getting into the zone when all the shots seem to flow together!! To War!!!

Fiance enjoying our first game. Picked it up NIB last night and have over 110 plays on it!

Sure looks like a keeper to me! Oh yeah... and congrats on the fiancé also.

Quoted from Colsond3:

In all likelihood, you won't. That is less than half the price...great find though and enjoy! Gotta love TAF.

And my favorite part of the story is that he still haggled the seller down another $100. Wow... it's just in some peoples blood that they can NEVER pay asking price. Ha.

Quoted from NightMutilator:

Never thought I'd get this one, but alas today I did!

Met looks awesome in that corner with all the accoutrements!! But I was trying to figure out what you meant by "alas"... are you really sad about acquiring it?

#5220 2 years ago

Looks like the fish in that tank are very interested in checking out your new MB. Great pic!!

Oh yeah... I found him.

Quoted from Colsond3:

Damn!! Where are you finding these games! Looks like I need to visit Minnesota.

LOL... that's a first!! Someone from the pinball capitol of the world wanting to go somewhere else to find a pin. If I had a nickel for every time PA shows up in my pin search, I could build a larger game room to house all those pins I CAN'T seem to find in MN. You seem to be swimming in pins out east compared to around these parts.

Quoted from Geddy2112:

Yeah that's great I would love to do that to my wife actually I just bought a AC DC Premium vault and I would like to get two more boxes and put them on the front porch she would flip out ......

ROFL... awesome!! But if I did that, my Xmas present from my wife would be divorce papers.

Quoted from corvair61:

Finally got her out of the garage and running. About 95% there!

Looks like an early prototype of the Danesi lock...

Beautiful pin... my wife would love that one!!

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Your certificate says there are 50 SLEs. I thought there were 80?
Regardless, big congrats on the game!

A more important question is whether it is HUO or not?

But in all seriousness, this is an AWESOME acquisition... would love to hear how you acquired it. I’d give a minor body part to get one of these. And don’t ask my wife what parts of my body are minor... I’m sure I wouldn’t agree!!

First of my games with the Cointaker backlight mod... love it and might have to look into getting more for a few of my other pins. And the rest of the pin is beautiful as well. Powder coated armor is sick!!!

Quoted from GreenMario:

Lucky me! It has 70,971 plays on it and has spent the last 2 decades or so in someones home.

I think you failed to mention the luckiest part... from looking at the pictures, it would seem that 70,371 of those plays were in the first 8 years and the remainder (I’ll leave the math to the reader) were in the last 12 years!!

Some days are over three days in the making, take luck, and friends to make happen. Finally!!!!!!!!

Wait... what? You've got friends?

But you did call me old in another thread and even though that's partially true, you might have one less now. j/k Congrats on the nice pickup!!
