    What would a Mint true 200 play game bring.Has premium Cointaker Leds New lit speakers and mirror blades.Looks like it just came out of the box.

    #2 1 year ago

    I can’t wait to hear because I have one

    #3 1 year ago

    Wow lucky

    #4 1 year ago

    Are you buying or selling? Haha!

    #5 1 year ago

    $3500ish for me.

    #6 1 year ago

    I'll give it a 4...

    Ripley is a title that holds up pretty well, so I look at it as nearly as valuable as a new, lightly used Stern pro. Why not? Quality was also definitely better back then.

    Quoted from locksmith:

    What would a Mint true 200 play game bring.

    With a recent increase in scams, how credible is the seller?

    #8 1 year ago

    agreed

    3500ish for a really nice example

    #9 1 year ago

    Don’t think you’ll find 1 in that condition for $3500. $3800 - $4000 is more realistic

    #10 1 year ago

    Late 2017 I sold my minty HUO RBION w/ some Comet LED's, scoop Cliffy, and Titans throughout for $4K, and it went quick.

    Awesome game, amazing layout, shots galore, really fun rules, and unlike some newer titles it's PACKED with features.

    #11 1 year ago

    $4-4.5K, if it is really in as new low play HUO condition. Remember that the number of plays can be reset when updating the ROMs, so don't necessarily go by that for counting the number of games played...

    #12 1 year ago

    No way to tell if it had 400 plays so that doesn't matter.

    It would get a little more than a standard one and have to have a completely flawless scoop witout one c-hair out of place.

    Which of course you would have to cover with a cliffy immediately.

    #13 1 year ago

    I bought one for $3900 that barely had dimples on the playfield. Game was basically brand new. Sold for $4k a few months ago to my boss.

    #14 1 year ago

    Easy 4 plus!

    #16 1 year ago

    All depends on the wear around the magnet (mushroom or chips), scoop, and shooter lane. That usually is the main indicator on plays with RBION.
    I never trust anything regarding play count. Let the playfield/boards/cabinet do the talking.
    2700-3500.
    Love the metal ramps on RBION.

    #17 1 year ago

    $4k plus easily

    #18 1 year ago

    4K + fantastic game

    #19 1 year ago

    So many say low prices but they never show up for those prices. Great game that was only appreciated later in its life, not too many out there. This means...

    4k+ realistically if nice. Imho.

    #20 1 year ago

    Just hanging around mon!

    Quoted from altan:

    I mean... I know you have it listed in your collection and all... but at least take 3 minutes to even go look in the pinside market archives...

    Nice examples go for 3500 and under all the time.

    #22 1 year ago
    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    With a recent increase in scams, how credible is the seller?

    Credible and friendly, locksmith let me put some games on a few of his machines the other night and picking up one of his games on Saturday.

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Nice examples go for 3500 and under all the time.

    One came up on Mr Pinball for 2600 the other day. Taken down, and now it's back up there for $3800.

    There are also examples in the archives for 4k-5k

    #23 1 year ago

    Just sold mine recently for $4300 I bought it with a true 80 plays and probably had a few hundred total after that it was it "fresh out of box condition" not a scratch anywhere the only things I added were LEDOCD and leds.

    #24 1 year ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    To imply that someone that owns a title cannot share their pricing opinion makes absolutely no more sense than someone stating people that don't own a title cannot share their pricing opinion

    #25 1 year ago

    Some specific facts:

    Boston Pinball says the average price in 2017 was $4000.

    Pinside sales (from 2017+) with a recorded sale price for an example that’s very nice (per OP’s question):

    1) 2017-01-02 — major flipper button wear, excluded
    2) 2017-02-02 — scrapes on cabinet, gross flipper button protectors. excluded
    3) 2017-02-19 — looks nice, sold for $3800
    4) 2017-03-17 — nice. sold for $5000
    5) 2017-04-10 — seems nice. sold for $3500
    6) 2017-05-18 — majro flipper button wear, appears to have cabinet dings. Stopped looking after this. excluded.
    7) 2017-08-13 — cabinet dings, flipper button wear. excluded
    8) 2017-08-12 — looks nice, $3500
    9) 2017-09-13 — looks nice, $4000
    10) 2017-09-25 — looks nice, $3750
    11) 2017-11-06 — nice. $3500
    12) 2018-01-09 — nice. $4300
    13) 2018-02-19 — wear on kickoff, cabinet scratch, flipper button wear. excluded

    So in 14 months there have been, to the best of my ability, 8 “very nice” RBIONs sold.

    The min price was $3500
    The max price was $5000
    The average price was $3919

    The $1500 spread probably shows there is a great amount of regional dependent demand.

    I paid $4000 for a HUO with 400 something(?) plays

    #27 1 year ago

    I see a lot of "looks nice" in there which doesn't necessarily mean "very nice" or minty HUO.

    #28 1 year ago
    Quoted from 27dnast:

    I see a lot of "looks nice" in there which doesn't necessarily mean "very nice" or minty HUO.

    I'll need a separate ruling on the average "nice" vs. "very nice." Divide that by "minty" and you get the answer "made up terms don't mean shit."

    Quoted from altan:

    I was not implying that owning the game negates your ability to share an opinion on price. I was pointing out your obvious bias of owning when you claim they never show up for these "lower" prices (in the context of this thread i interpret that to mean they never show up for 3500ish). As you can clearly see, you further your owner bias status by opting to quote EBAY prices (that is what boston pin tracks). You also quote pinside asking prices as verified sale prices while excluding games that fall below your decided minimum.

    Reality is that nice examples of RBION are easily and regularly found for 3500 and under for anyone with just a sliver of patience. Heck, just look how many even sold here in the past year as evidence for how commonly they are for sale, even "seems nice" examples

    Anyone paying more is either impatient or just uninformed/buying into hype.

    #30 1 year ago

    From my POV:
    1) I posted from my perspective that "4k+ realistically if nice. Imho." That's quote. I even ended with IMHO. I didn't say the information was incontrovertible.
    2) I then gather actual data, post it, and it shows the average price was a bit below my IMHO above.
    3) Then you continue pushing that I'm biased because I own it?

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    Reality is that nice examples of RBION are easily and regularly found for 3500 and under for anyone with just a sliver of patience.

    Pinside data shows only 8 sales of "nice" RBION (w/price recorded) over 14 months and, of those, none were less than $3500. Only 3 were exactly $3500. I don't think 3 examples over 14 months qualifies as "easily and regularly found". Just my opinion.

    The good news is that I'm hopeful the OP is getting the desired data from this thread.

    I emailed him about that. Said mr pinball screwed up and he intended to list it for 3800. Who knows if it's true

    Quoted from altan:

    I would assume he is

    3000 if you are buying and looking for a deal
    3500 is a fair price
    if you are selling or own one then 4000 plus is value

    -1
    #33 1 year ago

    Last year 3300-3500. This year 9-10k

    #34 1 year ago

    Thank you for all the input .Just wanted some real time, real price info on the game . I'll post some pics this weekend.

    #35 1 year ago

    Up here in the NW it would go for more then $4K easy. Regular RBION's are going for that up here. I would start higher, you can always come down.

    #36 1 year ago

    I turned down a $4500 offer for mine, so there's some more info to add to this thread, although the info is rather useless, lol.
    Terry.

    #37 1 year ago

    I've had multiple RBION machines and they were always a tough sell in the DC/MD/VA area. My last one was nice and I had to settle for something like $3000. So I'd say $3500 for a mint one is about right, at least in my area.

    #38 1 year ago

    Sold mine in January for AUD$7500, yes it looked almost new ( but I thrashed it as it is a pearler of a game ) colour DMD and just beautiful.
    I will buy another if $ permits. Bloody medical stuff costs heaps

    The ancient $1,800.

    Believe it....or not!

    #41 1 year ago

    If selling, I'd would say that you will get around whatever a current, lightly used, HUO, Stern title would get. Compare to a TWD pro or Met pro with 200 plays.

    $3,500 for a mint one in the DC metro?

    Survey says: X

    #44 1 year ago

    Really the magnet & scoop are the only wear spots (along with buttons).

    What code is it running?

    Metal ramps? Say what

    Habitrails maybe?

    Quoted from ttown:

    Up here in the NW it would go for more then $4K easy. Regular RBION's are going for that up here.

    I don't doubt this, I bought one just because it was part of a better package deal. It was folded up in my garage, and I told potential buyer that it was playing okay, needed cleaning, needed a cliffy for the pretty well worn scoop, and had a flaky switch. He took it for $3000, didn't even need to see it set up.

    #48 1 year ago

    One popped up about 5 miles from my house on CL about 12 months ago for $2500. I was about 30 seconds late and 2nd in line. Good news is that a local collector guy / league player nabbed it and not a flipper. They typically go for around $3300 in this area.

    #49 1 year ago

    Paid $4k for mine. 144 plays & came with the box. (Goodie bag intact. Full LEDs.) Never leaving my line up.
