Quoted from dmbjunky:

Was it cheap because HUO is kinda standard for sterns.

Monopoly is a bargain of a pin. There's TONS of stuff on the playfield. 3 ramps, 4 flippers, 6 pop bumpers, Lawlor design, GREAT flow. and you can still find them for 2K or slightly more. It's a great game. Good dots and sound too.

I love the Monopoly we got. Clean up really nice and was only 2K. Not sure what you paid for the HUO one, but I would say it was woth it.

The text on the buttons is faded so I'll get those replaced once I find a set.

Good luck with that Seriously though, if you can fins some, more power to ya. I couldn't so I ended up getting little plates to put on them.

Finally brought home and set-up an old Straight Shooter pin that was sitting at a collector friend's home (5 hour drive away) for over 6 months.
She ain't the prettiest (yet) and needs tweaking but a fun and challenging woodrail from '59.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

Just picked up an unusual hybrid game--Gottlieb Caveman. There's a code/rule update for this game, which should improve the gameplay drastically.
http://www.flipprojets.fr/CavemanEvo_EN.php
Playfield looks good, but the backglass was badly flaking (if anyone has a good spare to sell, let me know ). The battery basically threw up all over the MPU. But, it's a standard 80A board, so that's not a huge hurdle to replace.

Nice. Love the looks of the new Durangos. If I was in the market for an SUV, it'd be either one of those or a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

I was originally going to get a Grand Cherokee, but I have heard pins are super tight in the new ones. I like those a lot though.

Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Story is, my niece works at a restore and they don't take arcade/pinball games. Her co worker who does the pickups on things like furniture and appliances, mentioned to my niece about a pinball machine an old lady just wanted to get rid of in her basement, kids and grandkids had grown, etc and she just wanted it gone. (my niece had told them I was into pinball so that's why he gave her the heads up)
I had forgotten my tools on the way over to get it, and all I had was a pair of plyers and a flat head, and wouldn't you know, no key for the headbox. Hacking that lock wasn't fun but I had to, because the bolt was in there preventing the head from going down.
I guess she had it for around 20 years in a windowless basement, the batteries were dated for 1999. Playfield was black/dirty but wiped it down and is easily the nicest Black Rose I've seen. Plays like new too. First free to come along.

Very cool!

If you want to double your money, just let me know

Not a pin, but I feel fortunate to get it. Saw it online, left work half day and came home with it. Been wanting one since my hurnia surgery. It's the 72" version, but for $350 with battery and charger, I can't complain.

Damn, I missed this by like 30 minutes. Glad a pinsider got it.

Quoted from mkecasey:

Last night silverunicorn and I went and picked this game up from a co-worker. It is my first machine and I definitely owe a big thanks to him for answering questions and helping me with transport. He didn't have to help me transport my game but he was more than willing. Great member of the pinball community!
The game was given to me by a co-worker who had the game at her house. Apparently, the machine came with the house when they bought it. When she found out I loved pinball, she said I could have it as long as I came to pick it up. So it was a no brainer. Overall, the playfield isn't bad at all! Most of the wear is up by the spinners. Some lights are out but I'm planning to LED the whole thing anyways so that isn't a big deal. The backbox may not be the original box or it was painted by the previous owner. Not ideal but I can't complain considering it was free. At first glance, switches all seem to register and the flippers are still in great shape. I'm super excited to finally have a game.
The only downside... I'm flying to Milwaukee for a wedding today so I'm going to have to wait a few days before I can really dive into the game.
Thanks again for the help silverunicorn!

It was my pleasure to help you. The High Soeed, while not perfect, plays extremely well. It is a perfect first machine.

The move had its challenges for sure. I still feel bad about the wall, but we got it in with minimal issue, and the game was intact

I had forgotten how much I love High Speed. It has some classic Williams sounds for sure!

Enjoy it!

#7012 3 years ago
Quoted from egyptrus:

I feel like there's a story here

The house it came out of was gorgeous. The game room loft was on the second floor. The steps went down, made 2 turns, and then down again. And they were VERY nice hardwood steps. I was paranoid of scratching them. We got out of that situation unscathed, but at the turn realized we couldn' make the turn with the game on the handtruck. and not much room to remove it without taking it back up the stps.

Anyway, we get to the destination. Get the game in the house with no issues. My genius idea was that we could slide the machine down the steps on the carpet because again, there was limited room at the bottom and the game and handtruck would not fit. So that's what we did. Which worked really well, until I missed a step and fell backwards. the game slid down about 6 steps, and marked up the wall on the way down. No gouges, but I felt pretty bad about it. I take pride in moving things well, and this was a stupid mistake on my part.

I have 2 cool bruises, but nobody got hurt, the game was okay, and the wall really wasn't that bad. I just feld bad about the whole thing.

Quoted from Gornkleschnitzer:

Took home one of my grail pins today! Been wanting a Road Show for over a decade now. Probably should have been looking harder a few years ago when they were cheaper, but... eh, I got it. Needs some work, but at least it's pretty clean.
Part of my tarp blew loose on the way home - a 2.5-hour drive - and flopped violently in the wind. Got home to discover that it had deposited tiny bits of green plastic all over the glass and backbox - and somehow even all over the apron under the glass. That was the first time I've ever had to vacuum part of a playfield.
NOTE: Game was unfolded for photo purposes. It was NOT driven home uncovered with the backbox raised.
NOTE 2: I missed a major opportunity in the first photo; the game should have been sitting on the cardboard. Without legs, it was imamaculate.

Loomking good! What is Undertale? Did you build that yourself?

Chris

#11387 2 years ago
Quoted from mbaumle:

Yep! I contacted the seller 20 minutes after posting, and he said there were still people ahead of me. Somehow I got lucky the other 2 people ahead backed out.
The game needs a little more work than I had anticipated, but it boots and plays just fine. Figured I’d never see another AFM priced that well, so I pulled the trigger on it.
I plan on doing a playfield swap and re-decal the cabinet. Ordered new ramps and a plastic set. When all is said and done, I’ll probably just be a little under what it’d cost to buy a NIB one, but I’m super stoked about having an original. That alone makes it worth it to me.

Awesome! Glad someone here was able to get it and can make it great again!

Not a pinball machine, but still a pretty uncommon video game. It's like stepping back into my youth.

1982 Atari Black Widow. Super clean example (converted from a Gravitar as many were). Already did the first mod. The sideart for Black Widow was missing on the left side, and missing in spots on the right. I peeled the Black Widow art off and found near perfect Gravitar art underneath, which looks better anyway (in my opinion).

May not mean much to just pinball guys, but this was a great pickup to me.

It's a fantastic game. I found one like 12 years ago for $100 and I will never sell.

WOW! I wish this was $100 LOL. But given the condition I was happy with the deal. The game is much harder than I remember or may I am older and slower.

Quoted from Coindork:

Jumped in the truck this morning with my 8 year old son to go buy some doughnuts for the family and stopped at a yard sale down the street from us on the way back (literally at the end of my street).
Bought some random stuff like a large carved wood swan for $10 and as we were leaving the lady running the sale notice I had an arcade related ball cap on.
She asked me if I liked games and then took me around to the shed and showed me this Ms. Pac-Man.
Wound up buying it off her for $600 and she proceeded to tell me how her father owned a bowling alley in Illinois back in the 80s.
She brought the game with her when she moved to Arizona 30 years ago.
Its a really nice all original survivor and is working (only thing it needed was a starter for the marquee light).
I asked if she had anything else and she says she has some pins in her property up north and will send me pics next time she's there.
She didn't know what titles or much about them, so I asked if they had score reels or digital display.
She said they had a digital display for the score like an alarm clock. Guess ill find out soon enough.
I assume they are going to be mid 80s solid states from around the same time period maybe?
The tax stickers on the Ms. Pack are from 1984 and 1985.

Today has been great. Hit the road at 4:30am to head to Pincinnati, met a way cool pinsider, and grabbed a SLAMMING deal on this beauty. Just over 2,000 original plays. Never saw the inside of an arcade a day of it’s life. Might be the nicest Pinball Magic on planet Earth. A rare find for a game that’s already hard to find.
Bonus: A modern game does indeed fit in the 2017-current Mazda CX-5

Got this to work on during any lockdown. Love the cheesy music,call outs and game play. Keith McTeeth. What a classic![quoted image][quoted image]

That's not a popular game but I found it fun when when we had it. Some good long shots on that playfield.

Well....technically I brought it home 5 years ago....but it’s been wrapped up in the garage since then. Today....I brought him in to finally get started on the clean up and repair.
Was one of my grail pins, and got it for a great price as well. Plus it’s in pretty damn good shape considering.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Wow, fantastic looking phantom! That backglass looks mint!

Not sure how you waited 5 years to set that bad boy up! Love ours. Enjoy it!

Quoted from sixtyfourbits:

What’s better than buying a pinball machine? Going on a roadtrip with a buddy to buy several pins and a cocktail arcade!
I recently bought an “escape from the lost world”, and was fortunate enough to be offered two more pin deals as well. I knew I didn’t need that many new projects, so I messaged My good friend erico201 and asked if he wanted in on the fun. And he did!
So today Eric drove out my way, and we spent the day picking up projects. I ended up with a dr.dude, and Eric picked up a genie and a Juno first arcade. It was a bit of a puzzle, but we made it all fit in the truck.
We had a blast, and met some interesting characters along the way. Eric even offered to help me with some board work on my new projects!
Overall, it was a fun day filled with laughter, and pinball machines. Eric, you rock!
Now, onto the pics!

Love me some Dr Dude. Great (albeit cheesy) 80's System 11 awesomeness. Such good music. Looks like it should clean up nice. LOL @ the replacement Big Shot character on that one. Enjoy it!

Quoted from Coindork:

Brought this home last night.
Very nice condition but in need a good cleaning and full shop job.
Started going through it last night with nethawk86 and fixed all the errors (27 in all).
Mostly bulbs out, a couple stuck switches and one completely dead switch that we replaced. Couple loose wires etc. Game is working 100% now as it should and not throwing any errors.
Need to order a few things and then the cleaning begins. [quoted image]

Great Capcom title. I love my Pinball Magic. Also, they look amazing with a color DMD. Just sayin'.

Quoted from Coindork:

Brought this home last night.
The wife has been wanting one of these since they first came out.
Wound up trading straight across for 5 arcade games.
The wife is stoked and so am I since I didn’t come out of pocket any cash and was able to free up some space.
It’s only got about 500 play on it, so still looks pretty good and no play field chipping or pooling.
Need to move some stuff around this weekend to find it a proper spot.
FYI, our two kids are named:
Penelope Elaine (Penny Lane)
And
Harrison George
[quoted image]

Nice! Now I am wondering what 5 arcade games got you that! LOL

Chris

#16298 1 year ago
Quoted from Coindork:

1) Gauntlet II (very nice example, all new art and CPO)
2) Super Sprint (fully restored including powder coated coin door pedals etc)
3) Sea Wolf (modern sit down redemption game)
4) Centipede (all original, very minty survivor and an early serial number with purple on the side art and marquee. This was only done on the early run and after that they were done in yellow.)
5) Moon Patrol (I know, I know. This is one of my babies, but I’ll find another one and hopefully a nicer one. It was descent, but I always wanted a nicer cab).

Thanks for sharing! I think you made out pretty darn well in my opinion. Yes it's hard to give up some of your babies, but like you said you can always find another!

Enjoy the Beatles pin!

#16604 1 year ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

Do you want a Fan-tas-tic for $150?
Cab and PF are nice, BG is OK (good amount of touch ups from previous owner). Needs a little mechanical work. I recently polished the coin door and started cleaning up the cab, and it’s coming out nice.
I was going to list it for $300 or go put it in storage, but it’s yours if you wanna cruise down and grab it for 1/2 price. Happy Bday.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

oh wow, thank you for that offer! I am really not an EM guy, but that price is tempting! I was far too inebriated yesterday to do anything, and unfortunately today is booked solid, and next week work schedule is crazy

I sincerely appreciate your offer, and really want to see ColsonLand (tm) in person some time as you aren't that far from me at all.

Quoted from Colsond3:

Definitely happy...a few dings and scrapes on the backbox, but otherwise a pretty cherry game. PF is real nice with original mylar.
Staring at the mirror polished LD bar is making me think I now have to break out a polishing wheel for some of my other games.

If this comes up for sale in the future please keep me in mind

Quoted from Colsond3:

And I’d be happy to help you move it again...out to my truck haha.
Just checked out a vid on that game. Looks nuts. Let me know if you ever decide to move it.

Will do. The flyer says it weighs 500 pounds and it felt every but of it. Just the back door panel weighs about 40 lbs! Insane. Down the steps was hard enough. I can't even imagine getting it back out. Maybe an Escalera would make that easier.

It's fun so far. Added it to give some variety to the game room. The wife likes it too, which is a bonus!

Chris

#19139 8 months ago
Quoted from Pinkitten:

CarnEvil is a very creepy shooter, and worth owning if for the artwork alone. I'm tempted to buy cabinet decals from Ebay for $90. That art is just awesome!

The art is what drew it to me originally to be honest. The wife wanted a shooter and this came up locally. Looks good, even when off.

Looks like it's in great condition! Stupid question, but why are there extra leg bolt holes in the cabinet? My guess is so it could be set low for kids to play? Just curious.
