I live too far from Allentown to consider attending, but am just curious.
Were there any Monster Bash machines there, and if so, what were those prices like?
Saw a mb wrapped up in the outdoor flea market on sat. I assume it was sold early in the show.
On prices, em's continue to be reasonably priced as demand for them continues to drop relative to newer machines.
Nice dmd's and system 11's are nearly out of sight with many popular system 11's over 2k and many dmd's high 2's to 3's. Top models like af, totan, etc are well over 5k, even in so so condition. It's just the way things have been going the last few years.
Like a lot of other people I had my game pickup deal set up before the show. The de Batman at $1200 was extremely hard to walk past without buying but I didn't want to blow my load in the first 5 minutes of the show.
I had a game in free play that I padded the price expecting some negotiations, since it is a trade show and I assume most people do.
Overall games seemed reasonable for the current market. The flea market and project games seemed a little high and sellers didn't seem to want to haggle at all on those.
If my game had sold I would have gone home with something in it's place for sure.
