2007 Stern Spider-Man - SOLD

Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

One of my favorite games. I set up a game for a customer when this game first came out. I really liked the playfield and the game play. But never played it again. When I decided that I would buy games I wanted, this was on the top of my list. It came available fast. I bought it. It was not perfect, not home use but very good. The story on this game is that it was in an arcade for 3 months and did not do well. It was sold to a person and has been in their house ever since. It has many modes and multi balls. It is a great game and theme.

I replaced the left ramp (and decal). I added a protector to the left ramp. I replaced the Sandman plastic. I added a ramp protector to the right ramp. I added the 3 Cliffy protectors. I added the plastics protectors. I added decals and the paper inserts. This game has the super bright LED kit from Coin Taker. I also bought three modified figures (as shown below): Goblin, Doc Ock, and Sandman. I bought 3 modified figurines from Allen Willard (found the link originally on Pinside). I added red leg protectors.

The above photo shows the custom decal around the speakers and DMD and the new DMD.

The pictures have been taken with the glass off to get a better picture.

This game comes with a manual.

I drew it out but probably did a little overkill.

 

item

The decal applied. I still have to use the blow dryer to wrap the bottom over the lip. The beveled holes came out really nice. I used the "wet method" to install. Brian Dendis, who created the decals, told me to mix a half cup of water, 1/2 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid, then add 1/2 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol. Spray it on the DMD panel. (I used the blue sprayer above.) Peel and place the decal and line it up while wet. Once lined up I squeegeed out the excess water and air bubbles. Then I took a hair dryer and dried it and also molder the bevel edges and the bottom (next photo). The next day I used the hair dryer again to fix up spots.

What decal job would be complete without a yellow squeegee and a cell phone.

Now I am buying toys for my toy. The Spider-Man on the back webbing was purchased at target. He is just holding onto the webbing and can be easily removed. I bought a set of eight 2" to 3" figurines from Bandai for $32 including postage from ebay. If you look now, the individual items shown above are setting for $12 to $26 each. I am still experimenting with the Quake Hold putty I bought. The great thing is no modification is permanent. I am not sure of the look of the putty but I will see how it grows on me. This is the overall view with Sandman on the left sling, Venon above the Daily Bugle decal switch and sort of leaning on the ramp for stability, Spider-Man on the webbing, Spider-Man standing in the back right corner, Spider-Man crouching above the right flipper, black Spider-Man on the plastic below the flipper and another Venon on the right sling.

Another overall view of the left side with Sandman on teh left and Venon on the right.

Close up of Venon with his snow shoes on. The rampo provides stability. I tried putting him over the spinner. It looked great but no balance. Spider-Man is hanging out in the back.

Another view of Venon.

Black Spider-Man. He is also pretty stable.

Virginia Sales Tax

Virginia sales tax is currently 6.0%. Sales tax for in-state orders applies to machines and parts. It does not apply to the delivery or repair services.

Warranty

As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.

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. (As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.)
  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.

If you would like us to deliver and set up within 50 miles of Purcellville, the charge is $300; within 100 miles $475. The delivery charge includes delivery to a first floor or basement level if walk-out.

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.
