Drug home my favorite EM today. Finally caught a local one after missing several over the last few years. Works 100%, just needs a bath, bulbs, and rubbers.

Quoted from bluespin:

I’m bringing this Robo War home tonight. I called the estate seller and she agreed to hold it for me so that I could drive down 400 miles from Atlanta. Of course many people tried to buy it out from under me, but she kept her word and sold it to the first caller (me). Game plays well but the playfield is dirty with no wear. Factory Mylar still on the field. Only issue is that the displays are out.
At least two people offered to pay more than her $600 asking price. People that are doing this are usually creating auctions, driving the prices up for all collectors. If you didn’t get the pin, just move on. No need to hurt your fellow collectors pocketbooks.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Agreed.

Fun EM. Guy had never had the coin door open (no key) and he has 3 28 inch legs and 1 30 inch leg on it so it sits a little crazy. Drilled lock and had it going pretty quickly. Rubber kit on the way and need to clean 1 more score reel. Had to completely tear down ball count stepper and clean but good to go now. Seems to be a possible lighting issue on playfield matrix but I am hoping it is just bulbs.

Quoted from FatPanda:

Brought home my first project EM yesterday. Not even sure how far I'll be able to get. Better hit up all the EM resources!
[quoted image][quoted image]

piece of cake. I have recently cut my teeth with some EMs and love it. Took lots of forum/internet searches, but i actually enjoy it more than SS/DMDs.

One thing I learned quickly. Clean and lube ALL stepper units if it has been sitting a while. Once I did that 95% of all issues went away.

#12701 2 years ago
Quoted from FatPanda:

It's definitely been sitting a long while. A lot of the plungers and coils are real sticky or seized. I've only worked on 4-player EMs so far, so hopefully this will be a bit easier.

Just finished up a 1 player Hot Line. I enjoyed it.

LOL, she bought it for $500 years ago and has hardly played it. Is sitting in a little office area in her house. She wanted $300 and I had a friend help her with her car and she gave it to me.

#13046 2 years ago
Quoted from fisherdaman:

That's so awesome! How did you find it? Craigslist, facebook, word of mouth?

word of mouth, she was practically in my backyard also. Just shows there are still lots of games out there. Found out one of my neighbors has a T2 in his basement so went over and offered to buy it. He wanted $4500 not working. Win some lose some i guess.

#13087 2 years ago

Love devils dare, should never have sold mine

#13089 2 years ago

Finally got it home, has the diamond plate playfield, cabinet looks great, very little wear on playfield. Needs rubbers and some LEDs. Everything works. This will be flipped for cash to put towards another pin. The lady might have a lead on some other games. Probably will not be free but who cares.

Has great ramp shots. I have only seen 2 ever and the second is in my house. Got to play a super nice one a few years ago and have wanted one ever since. With what I paid for it and the $600 in parts I just ordered plus several hundred more when freeplay gets the ramps done I will probably break even on it one day if I sell.

Nice pick up today, old guy was going blind and couldn't play anymore. He has had it in his home for many years. Everything is in great shape and after a couple of tweaks had it playing 100%. Still has all paperwork and minty coin box. Does anyone know history on this game? Sure looks like grand prix stole this design.

Quoted from Gornkleschnitzer:

Not quite, but good guess! Special Force has joined our ranks, and we're glad to have it on the squad - at least, once we fix the rusty rails and dead flipper.
Picked it up for dirt cheap, with the seller even suggesting a retheme. I'm not going to do anything quite that extreme - the good parts of the circuitry will remain, as will the playfield - but custom cab art (most likely in a custom cab) is likely in this game's future.
Real bulb sockets, Williams flippers, and Comet sunlight bulbs are also in this game's future.
[quoted image]
At right: the Firepower that I picked up two weeks ago, for even cheaper, and forgot to post in this thread.

Brought this home last week and finally got it flippin. Kids love it and surprisingly I do to for it being so simple. Thought about trading it towards a slugfest but might have to keep it for a while. Ticket dispenser works so my daughter thinks it's the greatest thing ever. Printed up a new console decal Friday and installed it this morning.

Quoted from Alattig:

First NIB pin.[quoted image]

You picked a good one. It very well could be the best pin ever. The new code update is amazing.

#14663 1 year ago
Quoted from mbaumle:

Thanks! Honestly, there's just been a flurry of too-good-to-resist deals lately, and one of my resolutions (among other things) is to really hone my restoration and repair skills. If I'm gonna do something, I might as well learn how to do it properly. I'm not a sports guy, and I never watch TV, so I might as well really lean into the hobby. Also, my goal is to have a bunch of these projects cleaned up and restored (to the best of my ability), and brought to Allentown and York Show this year. I really want to start supporting the shows with meaningful, well playing games and start paying things forward. I'm starting to feel like a custodian for these games. Finding the left for dead games, giving them new life, enjoying them for a while before passing them on to other's who will hopefully enjoy them as much as I have.

yes, there are all kinds of super deals lately. I even got a NIB for $800 less than retail. I think everyone is making room for all the new game releases. I love it, been grabbing game more at the pinside average or below. Great time to buy.

Wow - a $20k weekend! Congrats!

I have done that before, fun times

I have also sold everything i had in 1 week and put about $100k in my pocket. Also, fun times.

#14906 1 year ago
Quoted from SkaIsntDead:

Yeah, I think part of the reason it is such a great value pin is because soccer isn't big in the US.

It used to be a great value game but there are 2 for sale for $4k plus right now which is crazy. Dont get me wrong, super fun family friendly pin but I am way out at anywhere near $4k. Might pay close to $3k for a crazy nice one but a player is floating Round $2k.

i had a restored WH2O and they are beautiful. Fresh chrome trim on those new blue decals looks amazing. I sold it and just picked up a players WH2O. Fun game but not worth restored prices, but I missed it enough to get a player back.

#15461 1 year ago

Quoted from HooperTriplett:

First pin! Wonderful shape, good deal, great seller.
Some things I've learned since buying:
1) Good grief these things are heavy!
2) Lots of fun to play at home - can hear and see what's happening so much better.
3) Must have jiggled something loose. DMD flickering. Time to start learning how this works.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

great first pin, Shadow is for sure one of my favorites.

Quoted from Ballypin:

Not at MY home yet but wanted to share now so I can keep up with Colson.
Been searching for a better condition Bally Flip Flop playfield to drop into my repainted cabinet. Finally found a good donor machine in VA 2 months ago but enlisted the help of a friend in the area and fellow pinsider justagefehler to pickup today and store for another month until I can pickup.
This game hooked me in the summer of '76 and this makes the 5th Flip Flop I have owned in over 31 years of collecting.
Still looking the sample version that has a metal top arch and green colored flip flags.

Just a moderate wipe down with Novus 1 on this Fantasy...scuffs and grime come up, ball track gone, shiny and smooth. Nuts.

Quoted from gonzo73:

Brought my first Stern of any era home last night. Apparently it was owned by a prop house for tv/movies, then ended up in an old lady's house. Anyway it's near mint, the last owner replaced all boards, installed led pinscores, and all led lights. All the things I usually do with my solid states. So there's nothing to do but play it.
It's one of the great early solid state pins, simple, fast and fun. Great spinner, mid field slings on the sides, no slings at the flippers, witch is refreshing. It's funny though I got it next to Spectrum and my friends Haunted House, not one of them with traditional slings.
Thanks to my friend Jay for offering the game to me .

I had to get me another. Game is just too damn good. Arguably Sterns best ever and a premium for same price as a new pro.

Quoted from Whysnow:

How much does a used prem go for now?

I have been shopping around for the last month and anywhere from low $6k to $6500 and most of them are loaded down with mods already. I saw many at the $7k mark but I am not sure the market is willing to pay that much for a 7 year old game.

Quoted from KSUWildcatFan:

Had a bit of an adventure yesterday with my most recent pickup. Decided it was time to finally drag it downstairs, but didn’t want to have to bother anyone to help. So... complete disassembly. I was both able to take it down these awful stairs solo *and* get it hooked back up correctly, so that’s good. Can’t believe just how much had to be unplugged in order to do this, though. Yeesh.

Picked up my first EM today. Was told it “works” but has a few adjustment issues.
Will be a long, fun, learning experience. Any tips or advice? The first thing I’m gonna do is get on Marco and order a set of switch adjustment tools.
Also.... had to show proof that you can actually fit a pinball inside a Kia Soul lol

Nice, my favorite EM. It is a nudgers game, have fun.

Quoted from Var1AbL3:

Today was a NEW pinball day for us. We grew our little arcade from four to five machines today!!! Added onto our Meteor Goldeneye Breakshot and Rick and Morty (Blood Suckers Edition) we added a beautiful Xenon to our collection. Whoever owned it before us must have been a GIANT because it is on 32 inch legs. We have regular sized legs coming tomorrow and it will be perfect. Very happy with the new addition.

probably that giant man I used to always see at TPF. I think he played professional basketball in his early years.

Quoted from Var1AbL3:

You would need to be almost 7 feet to be comfortable playing it. Thankfully the place we bought it from is giving us normal sized legs tomorrow morning.

Quoted from Willathrilla:

Oh, it's much worse than interesting. The previous owner made some unique do-it-yourself design choices.

I like it, we finished out a room in my old house and the drywall guys flaked out on us and did a crap job. We ended up buying a bucket of mud and doing this to the room. Ended up looking great once painted.

Not a pinball machine but definitely a machine.

It cuts through phone books like butter.

Pretty cool, I have owned several of these over the years. I have replaced them all with newer ones now. A phone book is no match for a commercial paper cutter.

Here is a couple of oldies that we still use everyday.
