Quoted from freddy:

i think he needs to double it and he might have a chance.

I think 25k is enough to prove I'm serious and get a seller to contact me.
We can adjust to a more "fair price" from there if needed,
but I'm not going to keep bidding against myself here...

Homie Don't Play That

The Homey the Clown dollar bill "magic trick" might be more applicable here.

Considering the last "public sale" of a DE KK went for a little over $20k on Ebay in 2013, the ante will most likely need to be raised.
If I remember correctly, this particular game came out of long term storage, and was not even "test fired".
I might be thinking of another sale, however, in the past decade or so.

The owners that I know that have one (beyond John) are not going to be tempted with $25k.
Money really is not the issue here.

Hopefully, the OP has actually had the opportunity to play the machine in person, as they might be a bit disappointed otherwise.
The only primary redeeming feature is the artwork, not the gameplay, but is not terrible either.
It would not sell really well as a remake, unless Stern did an overhaul, finish the code, and do some drastic improvements in features, and even a DMD at minimum.
It could have potential if this and a few other additions were made, and rights were secured.
Right now it plays like a weaker System 11 WMS game, and DE Robocop and POTO both have it beat in code as it stands at the current time.
Makes DE SW look like a "Picasso of pinball game code" (non-updated).

Occasionally, they do show up a show, but not as often as they used to overall.
Time marches on...

Just a small bump to help "Shock the Monkey"

I'm thinking it's the 'money' that needs a few volts.

Offer $30k, you might get some nibbling.
$35k, you will get a bite.

A suggestion fattrain: if no one will sell theirs to you have you considered the feasibility of having one built? Just a thought...

It would cost much less, but a current owner would have to join this project!

Interested in the fun rarity aspect of it more than anything (especially since the gameplay is very "meh"). If I was going to build one from scratch I would just make a brand new game & name it King Kong... Or what about King Hippo? Always enjoyed boxing that guy

does that mean you found one?

#168 2 years ago

Wow 25k... thats a lot of money.
i have a mc prototype serial nr 0001.
if you can wait a few months i make a King Kong of it.

#169 2 years ago

Well thats a joke.
If people can buy 3 Stern special editions why not a proto kingkong for the same price.
You can buy a 80.000 dollar mercedes car,after a year you have trow away your king kong money.
So why not.

FT,
If you got it bring it to Pin A Go Go or it didn't happen. (Set it as a Tournament pin)
