I've been looking for a Stern Lightning for some time now. I've had a couple slip through my fingers but haven't been able to nail one down yet. I like projects and players machines the most, but I'm interested in anything except for maybe the high-end primo restorations. If you'd like to trade projects, I have several project pins that I'd trade. Let me know what you have and let's talk!

I'm always looking for any of the other Stern M-200 games except for Flight 2000 and Big Game (already have those).

Not looking to ship. Looking in Colorado or thereabouts.

Edited to add that I would trade a Firepower, +/- cash as needed.

Thanks,
Luke

I'm also looking for classic Sterns. Game Exchange has a Meteor and Universal Pinball has a Nine Ball, but when I was there last week it wasn't working and does have BG and playfield wear. If I run across soon any other Sterns you might possibly have an interest in, I'll let you know.

Sure wish I could find a Catacomb.

I collect the old Sterns too, love them. Recently purchased a " Cheetah" What a game!.I do own a Quicksilver . Meteor, and a Galaxy all mpu 200.. Are games like Quicksilver and Catacomb common over in the USA as there seems to be quite a few down here in Oz? Good luck with the search. Nice to see more flipper parts and the like now more available and the boards of course , tis a great feeling getting a game working like new after it has sat for years

Thanks Wesley...I'll do the same. Nice to see some other Classic Stern collectors out there.

Hey Ralph. I see Meteors every now and then, but I hardly ever see Quicksilvers and Catacombs. I agree, it's great that some of the parts are being reproduced now...especially flippers. I have a couple I've been staring at for years now and just haven't gotten to fixing them up, so I know the feeling. Cheetah is cool...I'd love to find one to go with my Big Game!

I love the classic Sterns. I have Seawitch, Meteor, and Stargazer. They are all fun. Good luck on the search. Lightning is fun. i played a nice one at the Allentown show a couple months ago.

Got my first Classic Stern for free (Cheetah). Then got Galaxy, Meteor and Star Gazer. Now a lot of my local collector friends are looking for them. Fun games with great sounds, art and juicy drop targets.

I know someone with a Catacomb in Greeley, not sure if he'd sell it but I think he has mentioned it before. I can always ask if interested

#15 5 years ago

I wonder if that's the nice Catacomb that was at the Pinball Showdown in Denver a few years ago? Great game!
Would love to own one.

Wes and Luke,

I don't see him as often as I used to but usually run into him once a month or so at events so I'll mention it to him to see if he is interested in selling or trading it.

Thanks.
