2006 Stern Pirates of the Caribbean - SOLD

Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

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 is NOT home use only. It was on a route but in great shape. The close up of the coin door in the photo has the large hole where the bill acceptor was. I am trying to find a replacement blank to cover the hole. The game will have a complete door by the time it is sold. But it almost looks like home use only.

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

This game comes with a manual.

item Click on the Internet Pinball Database logo to the left. This is a GREAT resource to find out about the machine, see pictures, see reviews and download the rule sheet if one exists for the game. This provides additional insights into playing the game.

The LEDs just bring this game to life. We use LEDs from cointaker.com and they did a great job in mapping out the colors on this game. The shooter lane uses blue frosted LEDs. The inlane lights are white. The sling lights are violet which goes great with the images. There are a few white LEDs in the center left and right of the play field. Then all the general illumination changes to blue to give that ocean feeling in the back of the play field. The two spot lights on the ship are green and create a great effect. The spot light and lights around the chest are yellow to give that "golden" feeling to the chest.

If the ball had eyes, this is what it would see, assuming the ball was standing still. If the ball was moving, it would probably see a big blur since everything would be spinning very fast.

I used this to get the screw and nut out. My last picture below shows that they were smart when designing this and I could have secured the nut through the back of the game. Thanks Suzanne for photographing this live action shot.

The large ramp has two connectors that needed to be removed and labeled. Other other connector is the one behind my fingers.

As usual, I use another game to store parts and draw the locations and other reminders to myself. Note the q-tips. This game used the most q-tips to clean all the cravesses than any other game I worked on.

Main ramp removed. Note the dirt on the play field and plastics.

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.
