Quoted from TheLaw:
That's the best way. That goes hand in hand with the other side "how much if you unglued all this stupid crap form the machine?"
Yea... I don't normally put mods in my machines, other than ones like the Dead World in Judge Dredd....
I've seen pins that looked more like a toy box than a pinball machine with all the extra stuff pasted all over it. Not for me.
I think prices are at there max right now but they are selling, It will slow down as better titles are being released and once Heighway and JJP find their stride, with spooky and Dutch that means hopefully not too long before we have many pins to choose from each year which should cause prices on older pins to drop.
My guess is that we will not see abrupt changes in the pin market over the next few years. But over10/20 years price of A titles will drop quite a bit.
Also, I believe younger generations are partially entering the market, but I am not sure they will be willing to own 30/50 pins as now quite a few collectors do. I am 40, and for my generations and older pins were something only available in bars and public places. A pure and simple dream owning them at home!! So now we fullfill our wild dreams, and we secretly would lile to own them all (the good titles)!! Not sure younger generations - although enjoying playing - have the same amount of greed to pinball ownership.
