The area around the spinning disks gets worn out on most WWs.
From the pics it looks like that is most definitely the case. I do believe there are decal sets for both the discs and the surrounding area to address this however.

I dont own one, but it is a very fun game. I ended up getting a dredd as I like it more in the price range.

Looking at those pics its hard to say what id pay but my guess is youre going to need to put in some work inside and out if you want it looking nice. Ive seen nicer ones than this example go for around 2500.

Both of those games are a steal for the prices you mentioned. Run and grab at least one if not both of them. Both great games.

Buy it, NOW!

Exactly. And for the prices that he is asking for the WW and BSD I'd be buying that IJ and LW also if they are for sale. Go load'em immediately or risk losing them Op!!!

Even in that condition, a WW is worth a lot more than 1 grand. Go get it NOW.

I don't think this is in the US. Totally worth a grand in the states though.

I don't care if he's in butt fuck Egypt it's a decent WW for 1k

Not so long ago, a comparison thread was made pitting it against Funhouse, and Whirlwind won.

It’s a fantastic game.
