Quoted from Ballypalooza:
Yes, it the one that was with the Hardbody. I will tell you that the HB seemed to be in nice original shape. Both machines came with the house 18 years ago. Here’s a few pics. PM me if you have any questions I can answer. The guy was real cool.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Thats cool,if pac was in that kinda condition i woulda gave it a shot too,game has a pretty fun set of rules trying to clear the mazes and stuff
Quoted from Harvs:
Yep, the glass on this has been on there for a LONG time.. Weed particles under the lockdown bar, dirt weed that is.
I didn't know dirt weed was still available??, but this guy had a blazing hog leg in his mouth when I grabbed it. Rock on dood!
Anywho, sorry to muck up this thread with dirt weed talk.. - The pin was a score, worth 10k at least after my wipe down! (JUST KIDDING PP)
Lol,yes dirt weed is still around but rare tho like a guy having a star gazer or somethin
Quoted from gdonovan:
All the lights work, not a single one burned out which has never happened! Mylar on the playfield, backglass is great, minor scars on the cabinet and coin door. Fix the sound board and clean & adjust some switches and it will be in the lineup. Someone gave it some attention which is a nice change of pace.
I hear ya there,im runnin into guys that never heard of waxing a pf and sh!t Enjoy it man!
Quoted from KSUWildcatFan:
Not really a 'bring home' kind of deal but my previous pickup FINALLY made the trip downstairs to join the row. My friend drove up from Texas to make my alien poker his first pin, so he helped me take Space Shuttle downstairs while we were at it.
Feeling like this will be my lineup for a while going forward (especially since I cleaned out my lead with the meteor/EBD/BK2K/High Speed pick), unless something crazy pops up I guess. Still need to hardtop High Speed (working on it) and EBD later this year/early next. I've got enough to keep me busy for a while.[quoted image]
Great lineup man
Quoted from Matthew2000tx:
Williams Blackout! SS a Mother’s Day gift to the wife it has been restored to working order by MJM Amusements in San Antonio Texas. It was a long process that started the week after Mother’s Day 2019.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Great game right there,regret selling mine bigtime
Quoted from pinmister:
So after two and a half years of searching I finally found a Stern NBA in collector quality condition within my set price range. It has been a long hunt for this one, I had three of them slip through my fingers through the years and I did not want to overpay. This by far has been my longest hunt for a pinball machine. There are very few of these machines, especially west of the Mississippi.
I was contacted by a fantastic pinsider who held the machine for me for months until he could ship it. He could have sold it for more locally but he gave me a very fair price and worked with me knowing I have been looking for this machine for some time now. He also shared some great stories about hanging out and being friends with Lebron James(I love good stories). Another huge bonus was all the extra parts he generously included that are basically unattainable which is nice to have for a rare title. I am super stoked, it is such a fun game![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Nice score,i bet it feels good after the long wait
Quoted from pinmister:
Thanks-yes it does feel good, I usually enjoy the hunt but I began to get discouraged with this one. After about a year of searching I tried to talk myself out of wanting one. I thought I would not be able to get replacement parts and did not want to have to deal with that. I got discouraged as I found one in Canada for a good price but found importing was not an easy process and not cheap. Then a cool pinsider contacted me and we went back and forth for a year but could not come to terms. Then I got contacted by another pinsider and I expressed that I was highly interested, only to have his son sell it on Facebook the next day to someone else. I kept plugging away and eventually found what I was looking for. One thing I have learned in this hobby is patients-pays off.
Now what machine can I start hunting for now?
Im glad it paid off for you man,i dont have one game i wanna have next but theres only a few i realistically am looking for and its making me feel better about the wait after hearing your story,i think ill survive til the right one comes up.Enjoy the game man
