Check List When Buying A Pinball

Sold: May 2014

This is one of my top four pinball games. (The others are Star Trek Next Generation, Lord of the Rings, and Monster Bash.) This game was designed by Pat Lawlor. In my opinion, I like it better than Twilight Zone. The game is great and fun to play. Great for the family and fun. Fully restored with LEDs, new ramps, plastic protectors, and protectors. 

Sold: February 2014

This is always a great family game. This is a Williams wide-body pinball. Cliffy protector added for hole. Under plastic protectors added. Boards repaired and working 100%. New DMD display. New blue legs with blue leg protectors. All rubbers and lights replaced with LEDs. Game has been taken apart and cleaned and put back together (without leaving out any parts). This game has a shaker motor, 4 flippers, and two talking heads. "Red's" voice is Carlene Carter. When you get to jackpot mode, "Every Little Thing" plays. The cabinet is a bit faded as shown in the pictures below.  

This is a very underrated game. It is well designed and VERY fast. The cabinet is a little faded but still looks great. The back glass has a slight scratch on the front right car. It was not noticeable with the regular lights but shows up with the LEDs. It is a great game and I am enjoying playing it and so will you! 

Sold: December 2013

Restored with new boards, display, legs, LEDs, new plastics and more. A great game and great fun.

Star Trek The Next Generation is my favorite game. I sell it and immediately regret it. This time it took me two years before I bought another one. It is a widebody. It has a great theme, great sounds, great voices, great gameplay, great layout, and just an all around great game. Did I mention how great it is?

This game has a new display, a new translte, new ramps, new plastics, new rubbers, new posts, new LEDs, ramp protectors, Cliffy hole protector, a new driver board, and the upgraded lighted apron.

This is a true home use only pinball. This game has the Cliffy protectors, the Shire protector, and ALL LED lights. 

World Cup Soccer

Item

Sold: October 2012

This game has a new display, LEDs, posts, bumper caps, rubbers, plastics, plastic protectors, Cliffy hole protectors, decals, and many more cosmetic and functional improvements. 

Mills Chrome Bell

Sold: October 2012

The Mills Chrome Bell after it has been re-chromed. The award card is new. As you will see in the pictures below, the award card was originally silver but I could not buy a silver replacement award card. The original award card is still available with the game. I did all the red painting. 

Sold: October 2012

This is a beautiful game based on the Disney movie. This is great family game. I sold some of these when they were new. This is the first time I have restored a Pirates of the Caribbean (POTC). This game has over 30 hours of restoration work to get it to look as nice as it does. This game includes LEDs, new rubbers, cleaned playfield, 100% working, and decals.  

This game has the 4 glow balls and the manual. It needs to be cleaned. I started cleaning it but still more work is needed.

This will be a great pinball for someone to learn to take apart and clean up. It does not need to be fixed, just cleaned. A good introduction for someone wanting to learn. Or an inexpensive way to get a quality pinball that is NOT up to the quality of my other, much more expensive pinballs. 

Great game. Great theme. Fun mini playfield with three levels. Top level shown with two lock holes and target. Last picture shows 5 center targets. Lower level contains three holes that go into the subway ramp shown near the bottom of the set of photos. Game has been redone with all LEDs. New posts throughtout. New rubbers. Plastics and ramps extensively cleaned, including subway ramp (see pictures below). Driver board always replaced with 100% tested and working board 

Ms Pac Man 

High Roller Casino

A fun themed games. Many casino style games to play while playing the game. The game is in good condition with the usual wear around the cabinet flipper buttons. 

This is a 1933 Rock-ola World Series. I purchased parts from Hal O'Rouke (www.halor.com*). The first day I had it, I tried to adjust the bases so they will spin. I lightly tried to move the pivot point and broke the casting as shown below.

This game works. It needs some TLC. This is what I have into this pinball. I corrected the problem. For $50 or so, you can buy a replacement casting and replace the entire base but I am not a carpenter/craftsman so do not want to work on it. But if you did not it would still work nicely.

This is a beautiful machine and a great work of ingenuity. The game plays great with the glass off a a little help. The bases are a little lower than the playfield so the balls sometimes get caught. Otherwise it works great. This is great for a baseball fan or collector.

* Sadly, Hal O'Rouke passed away March 10, 2010. The web site is still available (as of this page's publication) but may not be forever.  

Bally Eight Ball Deluxe Limited Edition

Sold: January 2012

Eight Ball Deluxe is the best pool themed pinball ever made. It is one of the best 1977 - 1985 Bally games. This "Limited Edition" uses the "Rapid Fire" cabinet (which was also used for the Mr and Mrs PacMan). The game is a classic. The play field is in very good condition. The MPU board has been replaced with an Ultimate MPU. The cabinet is in okay condition. The right side has a gash as shown below. I would sell this for closer to $3,000 (with a discount) if it were not for the gash). Great game. Great theme. Great for the entire family.

Bally World Cup Soccer

Sold: January 2012

This is a great theme and a very engaging game that will provide unlimited fun for the whole family.

I am considering this a "Value Priced Pinball." This game is working 100%. But not restored to the level of my other games. Why not? If I do, it will add $1,400 to the cost. (See below for the parts that I would add.) This is a great game. Since it is working, I will provide my usual 6 month warranty.

A fun game for the family or a Star Wars fan! This game has an X-wing fighter (cannon) to shoot at targets. The cannons at the top back are also a magnet that moves the ball from one ramp to the other. There are many modes and many multiball modes.

The game has new rubbers, new LED lights, new drop targets and decals, and new flipper parts. Many coils and transistors were replaced. The acrylic backglass was yellowed and cracking. This has been replaced with new Lexan acryclic that should last for years and years. The front legs are new. I have cabinet leg protectors on the game.  

Bally Judge Dredd

Sold: December 2011

Judge Dredd was my first pinball machine I owned. Then I bought another and another and realized that no one in the area could really fix them to my satisfaction. It was nice to get this one 100% working and ready to go. The eagle topper is broken as shown in the picture above. I have the pieces but it would look like a jigsaw puzzle. All lights, rubbers, coils, switches, motors working 100%. It was a fun game in 1999 and is still a fun game today. It is a widebody. The plunger switch is on the right side of the cabinet. The cabinet is in really nice condition. There is a little wood missing on the front of the cabinet. See the last two pictures.

The helicopter has a new friction wheel and broken wires have been fixed. 

Stern/Sega South Park

Sold: December 2011

I have never laughed so much playing a pinball. Obviously it is based on South Park so it is crude and rude. This is NOT your family pinball machine and should not be purchased for or at least used by the little kids. If you love South Park, you will love this game. Everything on this game works even Mr. Hankey. This game comes with the topper and sign.

Sega Apollo 13

Sold: July 2011

This is a great game. It is fun to play and entertaining. It is one of my favorite games. Yes, the 13 ball multiball is a bit overthe top but it is always fun to watch someone play it that has not played it before when all 13 balls drop onto the play field. The theme is very nice and it will work in a family setting or in a space themed play room. Broken plastics have been replaced. Rubbers have been replaced. Most lights have been replaced with LEDs.

A beautiful and nicely restored 1994 Bally World Cup Soccer. This game works 100%. This is a great theme and a very engaging game that will provide unlimited fun for the whole family.

The entire game has been taken apart. The playfield has been cleaned. All rubbers and lights have been replaced. All broken plastics have been replaced. I was able to find many replacement plastics but not a whole set so some are original but none are broken. I also replaced the clear plastics and added the under plastic protectors. The six Cliffy protectors have been added. The hole eject plastics (3 of them) have been replaced so that they kick out the ball correctly (especially for the top left that shoots into the goal).

The soccer ball has been replaced. (I have the original so you can see how bad it is.) The soccer motor ball was replaced since the previous owners (a company that had it on a route) assumed you could fix a motor with grease and oil. The display and display power have been replaced. The bridge rectifiers and capacitors that usually cause the reset issue on these games has been replaced and should work nicely for the next 15 - 20 years. The game also has black leg protectors (not shown in the photos).

Reasons You Should Let Us Deliver Your Pinball (or Another Machine)

  1. We will NOT provide a warranty for the machine since we cannot be assured that a problem did not happen when you transported the machine.
  2. We take responsibility for any damage that may occur during the delivery process.
  3. We professionally set up the machine, connect all the connectors, attach the legs, head, etc. and ensure that the pinball works properly. If anything is out of adjustment due to moving the machine, we can fix it in a few minutes as compared to having to come to your house later and charging you a trip fee and repair charge.
  4. If anything major is out of adjustment, we can order parts and repair. This hardly ever happens but it could and you and the machine are protected.

Delivery Options

We are currently set up for local delivery only within the Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, and North-Eastern West Virginia area. If you are interested in shipping the pinball machine, we will contact a shipper. You will pay all crating and postage costs.

We will not sell you a game/deliver the game if the only entrance to your basement is an inside the house staircase. They are too narrow. Plus we have to ensure we don't mess up carpet or wood. It just isn't worth it.

You may also come and pick up the machine from our location.
