I wouldn't mind getting in line to take a look at the Eight Ball Deluxe either.
Gameroom garage is Ok. There's several arcade and pins throughout the place ranging from rough to good players condition. I didn't see anything that i thought was a deal though.
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
I gotta get up there - I'm more interested in some of the other stuff they have going on there - neon signs, stuff like that. The pinball is what it is in that place
The coolest part is that Coin Op's building is across the street. They had their dock doors open and it was arcade and pinball machines as far as you could see. I'd be more interested in visiting that building.
I follow CoinOp on facebook and agree, their prices are all over the place. I do understand that they are just pickers and their pricing is based on their costs. Some stuff is outrageous(but still sells within minutes) and other is dirt cheap. There are deals on his page if you know what you're looking at. My biggest complaint is that if you see something you want, you have to commit to buying as soon as it's posted, without seeing it in person first, or else it will be gone in minutes.
Quoted from PoMC:
I find it amusing that people collect scales and gas station pumps and that Coinop makes a killing on them. Who the hell would want a gas pump in their gameroom? That makes zero sense to me - what does a gas pump have to do with games?
I guess the scales at least are coin operated- but again, why would you want a scale in your gameroom?
Same here. Those people pay top dollar too.
"INTERESTING. This is the antiques warehouse model. Hope it works out .. but yeah at those antique places a LOT of stuff ends up just sitting.. for years..."
I could see a lot of GRG's stuff just sitting, but they've started listing items on CoinOp's FB page where anything will sell. GRG will probably do pretty well if they continue that.
Thinking of getting a cheap video poker if anyone has one. Doesn't need to be working. I have a hankering to convert it to something cool. Key word is cheap...
