LOL. My thoughts while reading this.
Didn't see that one coming, either.
Quoted from bigd1979:
Are you looking for around the same number?
Quoted from daveispinball:
Looked at your awesome collection and wanted one of them but then looked how far you were! Virginia sure is a big state! Glws.
Buddy is in this neck of the woods pretty often. If there's a game you're interested in, contact him, and I'll bet he could deliver it relatively soon.
Quoted from mattmarr:
Bo Jackson may get all the Tecmo Bowl love, but playing as Lawrence Taylor was a freaking blast.
As a Cowboys fan, it kills me to admit it, but the Giants were my go-to team on TSB. LT was a beast. Anderson, Baker, Ingram, and Meggett were a formidable combo on offense.
For some reason, I'm really attached to that actual EM. It's in very good condition, and I wouldn't get very much for it.
Quoted from per3per3:
New pros are selling for $5600
I'm curious about this as well. My Metallica (first run) was the last game I bought NIB, and I haven't followed prices. I'm thinking about selling my Met before the end of the year, so I'd like to know.
I'd say whatever the going NIB price is, you're going to have to deduct around $400 and hope you can find a local buyer. The ColorDMD and speakers, I'd say you could add ~$300 and ~$100 and still be in the right ballpark. The rest of the stuff, I don't think you'll get anything substantial for them. If $5600 really is the current NIB price, $5600 would probably be a good starting point for yours.
Quoted from Jesterfunhouse:
Not local to NC but I don't know what this means and it makes no sense to me...What does it have to do with buying/selling pinball??? Thats totally random?
Natural Bridge is in VA, and here's info on Dinosaur Kingdom:
I have no idea what it has to do with pinball, though.
They are asking that you post a market ad, even for trades. I have a Met Pro that I'm planning to list, but I need to take pictures for the ad first.
I know it's listed at more than a NIB, but it's loaded, so we'll see how this goes.
Quoted from nikpinball:
Surprising that kids are scared by that head.
My 4yr old son was fine with the shrunken head when I owned it, and has no problems with RZSSI. He's not in love with the boney beast on Scared Stiff, and he won't go to the bathroom by himself after dark. There's no logic with kids that age.
Would you consider trading for a less nice Whirlwind?
Seriously, though, mine's a keeper, and I'm planning to do a playfield swap once CPR finishes them. I'd love to avoid having to do the work, though.
Quoted from DCFAN:
LOL. I just talked to him last night. I'm not sure this would sway him from wanting Elvira 3 or RZSSI. ...or would it?
Taking pictures of it makes me want to keep it, but I also want a Super Chexx bubble hockey, and I'm out of space. Decisions, decisions.
Quoted from DCFAN:
You must be getting a Super Chexx that you were thinking about a few days ago?
Yeah. Was this in your message when I replied, or am I going crazy?
I have a neighbor who has mentioned selling his. We are probably just over 100 miles, depending on where in Richmond you are. I'll point him to your post.
I have a nearly full spool of black Hatchbox ABS that I'm not going to use. If anyone wants it, you can have it free. Just pick it up. Shipping costs would be nearly as much as it's worth.
If anyone local wants this, can pick up, and pay cash, I'll do 4800.
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
I have lots of legs, gently used rails, a couple rough looking lockbars, and one lockbar receiver. Anyone want these? I am starting to consider just throwing them out. They are all in good working condition (although not all are beautiful), I just don’t need ‘em
What manufacturer/era? At minimum, I've been wanting to try buffing a stainless lockbar, but I don't have the guts to start with one that I need for my games.
Quoted from per3per3:
Quoted from jefryan:
Such a great idea to do this.
I have had a temporary trade going with a friend for something like 6 months now. It's great in my case, but only because I would unconditionally trust this friend.
What happens when something goes wrong? His game had a coil that locked on, and he trusts that I won't let his game catch fire or at least I'll put it out ASAP.
