Has anyone checked out the Police Force for sale in Greenwood? The CL ad mentions weak flipper and half the display out. Seems like it has been on there for a while, didn't know if there was more wrong or price too high. I don't know what common problems are with that specific game or sys 11B games.
Quoted from dung:
I think it is the one posted on facebook. It is not worth it and the guy knows it.
That's disappointing. I know I'm new to this, but I never realized how bad the market could be with pins when trying to find something in decent condition and kid friendly at my lower end price range. Seems like every ad says their machine is perfect, except for the 1000 things they list that are broken.
What facebook page(s) do you suggest looking at?
Quoted from woody24:
Then if I ever buy a NIB game, you'll want to avoid buying from me, because I'll be installing token mechs in mine. I feel more of a connection to my game when I have to put tokens in it. Makes me feel like I'm back in the arcade. I'll even grab $2 worth of tokens to keep in my back pocket to play my $.50 game.
You just gave me a brilliant idea to have my kids earn tokens to play our games! A much more task specific item vs. quarters.
Quoted from glasairpilot:
Everyone has a different idea of "clean" "nice" "pristine" etc.
This is very true. I went and looked at a "fair" arcade game that "turns on but is not playable" recently. His "fair" was mold, rust, spiders, and mice (both a nest and a skeleton on the fuses). "Turns on" meant the lights in the coin door came on and the monitor hummed.
Good prices almost always sell fast. I drove to WI just above Chicago to pick up my 2nd pin.
ArcadeRescue911 sells some pins, but only lists on Facebook. Both on their own page and in a few Pinball groups. Not sure about DocPinball. I think I have seen some on Facebook and CL.
I am not vouching for either company. I have not bought from them, only seen their posts.
