99% whatever you buy from him it's just something he's reselling.

I imagine that rings true for 99% of sellers on here be it parts, pinball arcades etc...right? I am just trying to find someone who has bought one of these units off of Chris and if warranty issues came up etc.....does he stand behind his product? I see a lot of highly negative posts pertaining to him but I take it with a grain a salt as it seems the pinball world is a variable "mine field" so to speak so much so terrorists would be jealous. This of course is just my experience.

His stuff tends to be overpriced and aimed towards folks who don’t know where to get pinballs or amusement devices. I don’t think you’ll find many MAACA members who would buy from him. I know I looked into buying from him but he is selling nib sterns for 2000$ more than Player One yet he is not an authorized Stern dealer. Red flag for me..

His multicade stuff may be different/better.

Wanna see Kingston Chris loose the cane and move faster than Ben Johnson?

Back when TZ was approx a 4K game, we were at a show and played a trick on a buddy of ours by reducing the price on his TZ to 2K (or something like those numbers).

Kingsoton Chris lost his need of a cane and came sprinting over to buy the TZ!!

Good times.

Hmmm, he did not have a notable disability at the pinball show this year in Ottawa. perhaps he was faking to begin with?

Well, I will be on the more positive side to give more perspective. Pricey? Yes. But the builds are pretty solid. He uses new wood for his cabinets, has very nice graphics on them, uses tried, tested and true multijamma boards, new monitors and new hardware.

Sure, you can get one from someone for 500$. But not all of the machine is new.

You can't compare these to those made by collectors. A collector doesn't look at his cost when building a game. He has no business to run.

And if not by Chris, there is a gentleman in Drummondville that builds nice ones as well, with all new materials.
Patron saint of lost pinball causes.

Stage 5B. All except for NIB crap.

Really appreciate the information man! I looked at other MAME homemade units for half the price and they are a damn eyesore. That bein said I think Chris was asking around $2400 all in and they are easy on the eye. Perhaps he might even have "pandemic pricing" since 70% unemployment rate is about to become REAL. I have been weighing back and fourth on a used pinball for the same $ VS a brand new MAME and I think the MAME wins out.

Bought a nice sweet multi-cade with 1300 titles for $2400 all in for price reference. 1 year warranty. I know MANY people shit on Chris but his MAME units are T I G H T> not a eyesore. Now I need to find a pinball OR two. 2condly you know what your getting....no missin parts, no lies and someone who has the resources to do a in-house repair if necessary....CHEERS !

My buddy bought a cocktail arcade machine off of him and it hasn't been a year and its not working.
He asked me to look at it, i said i would IF they don't fix it or say he's out of warranty.
No clue If he's reached out to them or not.

The arcades themselves are wrapped in what i guess vinyl. The look good buttons, joystick all seem to be premium stock.

I'll hopefully not have to cross that bridge.

Have not a clue other then they are the exact same one's that were at the 19 Pinball Ottawa Expo. BTW if anyone is concerned we were outside and every one was gloved up and away a good distance from one another. Wish Home hardware took that initiative. Poor wife has to work their as they are considered essential.

Good times, indeed. He was still panting from the sprint when he gasped, "I want to buy your game" as he grabbed my shoulder. I'm in the middle of a game of pinball and say sure. He says something to the effect of "right now", so I have to stop mid-game and try to keep up with him as we rush back to "my game". At this point, I have no idea you SOBs switched the price card :lol: . So I walk around and see my card on the TZ. I burst out laughing and tell him that's not my game. Chris was not impressed and his smile turned upside down pretty quick. I still laugh when I think about it and I'm smiling now.
