Picked up my first ever pin last weekend. Game Plan Sharpshooter.

The PO is a terrific guy and gave me what I feel was a great deal. Also threw in nearly all of his left over supply of "stuff".

Fit quite nicely in my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee!

Of course it was raining, but hey, can't have it all.

I'm looking forward to this hobby. Is it wrong to be looking for other deals already?

This game is awesome, and I don't expect it going anywhere for a long, long time.

Quoted from Colsond3:

Welcome to the hobby. It is wrong, but everybody does it. Sometimes I'm perusing CL or Pinside before I leave the seller's house...while I'm still in the driveway (just in case I come across a good deal "on the way home"). This hobby is an illness...start medicating.
Call 1-800-PINBALL. It's a support group that I started that focuses on sporadic and overzealous pinball buying.

I figured this was going to be an addictive hobby judging by threads showing basement arcades and discussion of divorce!

Glad I'm not alone.

#5188 2 years ago
Quoted from gdonovan:

I started 3 months ago, 14 pins.

That's impressive, and frightening at the same time.

I have still been scouring CLIST every morning. ..... and night. You know, just in case someone is selling for pennies on the dollar.

I've only got room for 1 though, ok probably 2. Yeah, I could definitely fit 2, maybe 3 if ......

Quoted from Star_Gazer:

hurray!, pressing the Eprons back in their sockets brought my (sold as broken) Tx-Sector back to life!

Quoted from Mopar:

100% I restored Kiddie Rides and if you were closer I'd
offer something very decent for it mostly to save it..
I'd have to think one of a very few (if that)..

Yeah, I'd rather you use the front to make a mold and then resell. Win - win.

But hey, it's yours, do with it as you wish.

Quoted from PinPilot:

Some Whitewood goodness: Note the Sharpshooter drop targets

Should you decide to replace those drop targets I'd be interested in them.

I own a Sharpshooter.

#5476 2 years ago
Quoted from PinPilot:

Just took home the original Game Plan factory prototype of Andromeda! It's on a Whitewood playfield, with notes from the designers. It's in a Captain Hook cabinet, s/n 5375. The back glass is pristine! The Pinside game catalog has a photo of it - it's the Whitewood. I'm hauling it home now, may post more pics later.

This is very cool. I think things like these offer so much conversation and history.

Nice catch!

#5498 2 years ago
Quoted from bronco-jon:

Went to go look at an old Gottlieb Vulcan today.....The playfield condition told me to load it up.
It's missing one of the plastics behind the left drop targets.

Like me some Vulcan! Nice grab.

#5508 2 years ago
Quoted from wayout440:

I've got a Secret. Thanks to.amkoepfer

I like the the theme and humor of that machine. If my budget weren't $500 I'd be all over one as my second pin.

Good luck 001!

#5562 2 years ago

I love that theme!

I'd like it as art, but I feel The Mrs. might disagree.

#5576 2 years ago

Nice find! I'm happy it's out of storage.

#5608 2 years ago

My son would go crazy for that IM! So would i!

Nice get.

#5611 2 years ago

Sa-weet! Except for the batteries of course.

#5613 2 years ago

I can verify that an Al's Garage Band goes on a World Tour will NOT fit in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, , ,

Well, without a little deconstruction anyway

Needs new rubber, and I had to cut a wire to make it work, beyond that, I think it looks pretty good!

#5638 2 years ago
Quoted from Thrillhouse:

The guy only wanted $50 for it, i had to pay him more to keep the pin gods appeased!

What! That is outrageous! Nice get. Looks to be in pretty decent shape too.

#5653 2 years ago

I love this shot! The kids expressions are priceless.

#5657 2 years ago

#5665 2 years ago
Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Ive got my NIB TRon LE and a Star Trek LE coming next week. My wife is going to walk into the garage and see them. I do not think she will be happy. Wish me luck. If I disappear off the forum, you probably have an idea of what happened to me.

Just make sure there's a small box for her on top of them

#5687 2 years ago

A threesome? Nice!

#5694 2 years ago
Quoted from bflagg:

Picked up a project Lost World with a toasted backglass, also picked up this one from the same owner for a good price. Needs some cleaning and new rubber and a few misc things. Not sure it will stay too long. Best part is the $73 in quarters in it makes the purchase price that much better.

Found money, Sweet!
Nice to pick up a twosome.

#5698 2 years ago
Quoted from Chosen_S:

And it's fashionably on topic... the wife says cactus is 'in' right now
Looks like a cool game!

Ha! Was shopping with wife the other day at Home Goods and they had a 5 foot plastic (?) Cactus for $80. I told her it would look great next to my Sharpshooter. She disagreed.

#5699 2 years ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

Just picked up my first EM...Gold Strike. Probably jumped in over my head with a non-working machine, but it's a great machine.

Nice machine, good luck with the fix.
I was considering a western theme for all my pins, this one was on the list.

#5702 2 years ago

Is quoting yourself "a thing" on this board?

#5725 2 years ago
Quoted from gregh:

Brought home one of my grail pins this week. I know it isn't the deepest or most fun game on the planet, but I have desperately wanted one since getting into pinball!

Nothing wrong with enjoying want you've always wanted. Congrats!

#5754 2 years ago

What's the over/under on this one?

14 days until she accepts your keeping both?

#5761 2 years ago
Quoted from Oneangrymo:

That would work, but she'll be like "you don't have any friends". I'll just try to hide them under some blankets or something.

I'm live pretty close to you. I'll be your "friend" and keep a few for you until you need to rotate.

#5771 2 years ago

Phew! That must have been a horrific few moments for you.

#5783 2 years ago

Is there a YouTube video of it? If not, you've got some work to do.

#5840 2 years ago

Cheap is good, free is better!

I was looking at one of those around me months ago. Amazing how some Craigslist sellers don't return email, calls, or other.

Good luck. Looking forward to the restoration.

#5855 2 years ago

With cycle racing "summer break" I'm jonesing for that game!

#5858 2 years ago

I love this thread on weekends!

#5867 2 years ago
Quoted from jorge5240:

Well the computer problem was kind of crazy. If the PC is on its side game works perfectly. When I standing up the PC it doesn't work. Any game is working now.

Glad it's up and running. Nice looking room!

#5872 2 years ago

Excellent find. I saw one listed a while ago. Poster initially said non working, then changed ad to working. I was tempted as the backglass is pretty neat.

Now you need to make a blue ox topper!

#5966 2 years ago

Mmmmm, fresh blood!

Made a 13 hour round trip from DSM to St. Louis to check 2 more pins off my bucket list. Thanks Elevatorman!

Dedication my man!

#6097 2 years ago

Free! The best bargain ever, congrats!

#6128 2 years ago

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

On my list as well.
Great find!

#6163 2 years ago
Quoted from Chosen_S:

Congrats man!!! What a find!! Being all the way south I doubt I'll ever find any gameplan pins... ever... unless I build one from scratch, oh Cyclopes, I dream

I think a Texan just snagged an Andromeda not too long ago .

#6346 2 years ago
Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

Yay, I can finally post my exciting score!
This is my second pin that I've been hunting down for a while now! The first time I saw one of these and watched the gameplay I fell in love. What a perfect combination!
It took me hunting into a stale ad on Facebook many hours and miles away. The pictures were sparse and the price was too high. Luckily it hadn't sold and the gentleman was glad to finally move it out! We settled on a FANTSTIC price and I set out on an all day adventure.
This game also happens to be quite special, as this hails from the legendary FUNSPOT! I'm thrilled to be only the 2nd person to own it.
Yes, FunSpot means heavily routed... but surprisingly this game looks great and there wear is minimal. Playfield needs a good polishing but artwork is fantastic!!
Without further delay, here's my extremely HEAVY new Baby!

Congrats! Looks good from afar.

#6399 2 years ago
Quoted from Rondogg:

Believe me, I have way more respect for your collection than almost all of the cookie cutter collections (MMr, CV, TZ, DI, etc etc). Those pins all look like a blast!

Yeah, it's funny, many of the coveted pins do little to move me. I am definitely envious of AFM owners though

I love my Sharpshooter. Not even on the radar by almost everyone here, but it is the pin by which I judge others. If it makes you happy then it's worth the money.

#6420 2 years ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

Ended up with a fairly rare find last week--Gottlieb Star Race. Never thought I'd see one in the wild. I never cease to be amazed at what pops up.
The MPU had battery damage, so it wouldn't boot. A previous owner zip tied the game over relay so the coils would still flip, and they continued playing it in that state. There was a beer bottle cap taped down in the kicker hole so the ball wouldn't get trapped. I'm not sure what they did about getting the ball out of the trough and into the shooter lane since those coils are under the apron and can't be manipulated manually by just reaching in through coin door.
The backglass is flaking, has a small chunk missing, and the playfield has some wear and is flaking above the flippers. I never know what to do with flaking playfields since I don't do clear coating, and I'd rather not throw down mylar since it would only pull up the paint later and cause problems for future restoration. Maybe I'll hunt down someone in the area who can spray it without having to take apart everything on the underside of the playfield.

Was that the Craigslist ad? I saw that, went pretty quickly! I was thinking about looking at it but sounds as though it found a much better owner.

#6449 2 years ago
Quoted from SadSack:

Spammer, scammers.

Think I just dealt with one today.

No phone number, just having a good time I guess? Why list items below market just to not reply? They got no email or phone from me....

Is this the new ring and run?

Quoted from SadSack:

This Seawitch was the first pinball machine I sold. I just got it back today and will route it for at least a few months before putting it up for sale.

So you're excited to have it back, so you can get rid of it again? I'm confused.

Still, getting your first sale back is kinda cool. I think I'd keep it.

It looks awkward in that room, you should box it back up and send it to me.

I loved the reveal.

#6954 1 year ago

Brought home an F14 today. Glad I offered low over the phone as everyone's definition of "Good condition " is clearly different.

Nonetheless, game functions properly, so after a power wash, this thing should be fine.

Quoted from ralphs007:

I didn't have access to a truck today,so Colsond3 who sold me the machine,dropped the machine off at my house today.It works,and I'm going to use it so that I can practice working on pinball machines. He also helped me carry it up to my second floor,and then he set it up for me! He practically gave it to me for $180.00 delivered.
I think when I done fixing it up,I'll be able to sell it for $5000.00

Yeah, Colsond3 sounds like a real jerk!

#8978 1 year ago
Quoted from bkfiv:

I was the first responder on Craigslist <for once> & the nice seller held it for me even though he was getting offers above asking price. I'm excited to set it up later without paying the markup the flipper blockheads would have charged. It needs a wipe down & rubbers but it's in really great shape! I'm excited to add a classic Stern to the lineup.

Happened to me once as well. I always make sure to honor my word, hopefully it comes back to you. Looks like you scored. Woot!

Anyone care to guess what's in the box? I drove 1500 miles round trip from St. Louis to Morris, Minnesota and back in 26 hours. Left Friday morning at 6:00 and was back home at 7:00 Saturday morning. It's a treasure that I have been trying to buy from the seller for about two years. We finally agreed on a reasonable price.
If no one can guess the contents of the box, I'll post a few more revealing photos later.

That is a great looking playfield. I don't think I've ever seen a Star Trek look that nice. Usually, they just suck, and are listed as "good condition".

Hope it plays for you too.

Quoted from mbaumle:

Thanks! I should’ve clarified. I played the game before I bought it, but just enough to verify everything worked. I’ve never extensively played it enough to have a real opinion on its gameplay.
The backglass has some disappointing delamination though. I guess you can’t have it all.

I think you did pretty well. You can generally find backglass or repro's, but the playfields seem to be a PITA.
Cool either way, and happy its a player too.

En route home from this local pick up. Needs a little work. Wont kick ball into shooter lane but everything else works. Playfield has no wear!

I did not think this would end up in the basement but it did. I like it!!

Looks nice!

I've never been a Star Wars (movie) fan, but this pin seems well put together.

#9525 1 year ago

Living without a pin, waiting for the right one to pop up was was killing me. Found this 40 minutes down the road. Guess I'm part of the EM crowd now.

Snagged this artistic wonder. Plays great, well designed pin.
Anybody up for a two level retheme? Slipknot? Phantasm? This one is half dismantled and needs a complete overhaul anyway. I’m open to suggestions, preferably music or horror related.

I'm not certain this is the machine for it, but how about a nice Edgar Allen Poe themed pin some day?

Nice FrankMac! I'm still on the fence over DP. Seems as though everyone is pretty happy with it though.

With all those machines you must need some room. You should probably sell me your Secret Service

Found this Rawhide locally for a good deal. Backglass is great, some missing paint on playfield, and some mechanical issues to work out but I'm looking forward to playing this one. I may be hitting up the forum for some help

Glad you picked that up, it was calling me and I didn't feel like making the drive.

#9832 1 year ago
Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

Don’t see Deadpool selling much.

We didn't see a million posts about Iron Maiden in this thread either. I don't feel the new games get listed as much here, they seem to have their own thread. I'm willing to bet both of those pins have found several homes. I enjoy the oldies in here, the "finds" if you will.

After months of messaging #swords-of-fury owners in Wisconsin and beyond and a 9 hour trip LIONMAN is finally in the lineup. Meticulously restored by @nerdygrrl, beautiful @captainneo cleared playfield, and sold to me by a great Pinsider @mnhotrod. My only plan is some cabinet touch up and changing the ramp lights from blue to orange and red. This ones here to stay!

This is my Black Friday purchase.
New project game for 150 euro.
One side painted blue.
Playfield damage in the center.
This is going to be a players game.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Wish there were more reasonably priced player's games. For little money you get to experience a new machine and send it on its way when ready.

Museum pieces are nice to look at, but I like players. I'm never nervous when kids are playing because it's already nicked and dented.

Quoted from Coindork:

Picked this guy up a little while back so figured I would post some pics.
Long story a short a really good customer of mine found out that I collected pins and gave it to me.
I'm pretty sure it has not been played in a very long time.
All of the rubbers were yellow, cracked and hard as a rock.
Anyhow, had it out in the driveway today with my 8 year old son working on it.
Striped sown the play filed and cleaned it, replaced all the rubbers and burnt out bulbs today.
Also fixed some of the plastics that were warped by laying them flat on the garage floor and taking a heat gun to them.
After that my son and I replaced all the bulbs in the head box and underneath the play filed as well as two loose solenoids for the score reels that were missing screws. After that it got dark and was dinner time. Will probably hit it again in the next few days.
The game seems to mostly work excepts a couple of the coils keep getting stuck once the ball is in play and has hit targets.
Anyhow, pretty bitchin for free. [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Looks great from here! Congrats

Not a pin, but been looking for a project. Found it today. We all know there is more where this came from! 14 footer!

Now I need to find a bowler forum.

Quoted from steve-o:

Two projects joined the gang.
'85 Bounty Hunter
'84 X's & O's
These were basically, no line, walk up and play at pinball shows in the past and were surprisingly fun players. IMO.
It'll be unlikely if I can get to them this year, but I'm looking forward to playing them once they are playable.
[quoted image]

Big fan of Bounty Hunter art work. Never played one, hope I get the chance.

#11672 6 months ago
Quoted from RockfordReplay:

I googled to find what this was (the woodwork, ball return trough and open play surface are intriguing); Link;
Wow, what an incredible machine. The 6-player and Team Scoring is awesome. I don't recall experiencing anything like this (perhaps too young and naive to appreciate it if I had). The style, look, layout and woodwork of this particular machine seems special. Really neat.

Thanks! Unfortunately, this version doesn't have the team play, but I don't mind. This is about the journey for me, and having a cool toy i brought back to life. I never played them either. Of course it was built before I was born, so I'm right there with you!

There were 2 regular wasp nests in the main cabinet and 3 mud dauber nests in the backbox....1 on the bottom of the box, 1 on the SDB, and 1 on the Player 3 display board. All the nests were old and long abandoned.

Gotta love that. I suppose someone will buy one of my games some day and find something similar.

$98.75. Nice score!
