    Quoted from jaytrem:

    Thought Verne's would go higher than Jolly Park, guess the lack of power kept the price down.

    Mpu has major battery corrosion

    Will never play again
    Crazy price - new owner will be very disappointed

    #3802 73 days ago
    Quoted from Kiwipinhead:

    now , 12 hours to go on auction..

    I guess that "crazy stupid pricing" is a relative term, with some uncertain or geographic variables.

    #3803 73 days ago
    Quoted from PinBallPeteFromSD:

    Actually Verne turns on, language issue again. We only had 1 invertor for 2 machines.

    Vernes world has inverter inside the machine

    Quoted from Karnov:

    Dear future Midway Gun Fight owner, you may want to replace this as it's shorted. Game still works.
    [quoted image]

    Thank you
    I’m planning to buy it
    Anything else wrong ?

    #3804 73 days ago
    Quoted from Brk_oth:

    Yeah I thought it would go higher too.
    Vernes was also playable, I never had Jolly Park working. If I remember correctly I think there was just a bit of messing around in the menu system, which is all in Italian, to credit it up.
    [quoted image]

    I have my Jolly Park set to "exhibition" mode, which seems to be freeplay but then doesn't keep the high score. You can do that with the dip switches on the main board (little late now I guess). The prior owner rigged up the coin release to add credits, that worked fine too.

    #3805 73 days ago
    Quoted from PinballSTAR:

    OKF 8,200 plus fees = a few thousand higher than what we can sell new in box... lol I'd love to meet the knuckleheads bidding on this stuff...

    10,375 not including Shipping. Why?

    #3806 73 days ago
    Quoted from vicjw66:

    I’m really regretting not bidding one last time at $3400. These just don’t come up for sale. I figured whoever got it was not one of the same guys who won the Cyclone or Data East Batman. Can you ask Cary if he would have countered at $3500? How high was he willing to go?

    I’ll answer your question within 24 hours. I got a thing to do about picking up a game first.

    They might be able to grab a mpu from somebody in Europe. I've seen lots of spinball parts on the craigslist type thing in Spain. Can't think of the name right now, must be getting old!

    #3808 73 days ago
    Quoted from NicoVolta:

    OK everyone a big round of applause to our California purveyor of pinball clubs, CaryCarmichael who attained the Freedom Prototype. *woo woo*
    Hey Cary... this means it'll be available for play for the peoples, yes?

    It’s on the floor by league night Monday!

    #3809 73 days ago

    For those in the know, what is the real story with the Cosmic Carnival? Does it really just need the code?

    Did it go for $5,100? I looked away. Maybe not that bad if it can easily get running.

    Edit price: Thanks GroggyFrogFace.

    Did it go for $2,500? I looked away. Maybe not that bad if it can easily get running.

    $5100

    #3812 73 days ago

    ACNC $6700, Bad Cats $9900 Sorry Spooky

    #3813 73 days ago
    Quoted from thechakapakuni:

    ACNC $6700, Bad Cats $9900 Sorry Spooky

    I feel bad for the person that paid $9,900 for the Bad Cats, not Spooky.

    #3814 73 days ago
    Quoted from rvdv:

    Thank you
    I’m planning to buy it
    Anything else wrong ?

    Nothing that I noticed. It has a switch mode power supply inside with the correct harness adapter so no major cutup wires. I think it's in good shape.

    Quoted from Quadrat:

    I bet lot 1014 Safe Cracker Pinball Machine hits 20K

    not even 10k

    I was bidding on that like mad! So angry I didn’t get it.

    #3817 73 days ago
    Quoted from ZooDude:

    So people coming from Australia and Dubai paying crazy prices to fill containers to ship back to their countries means California sucks?

    People keep saying this - I haven’t seen any evidence of it.

    My contacts in Australia don’t know anyone buying games. There is hardly any pinball in Dubai.

    Feel free to post up if you have some intel about these mysterious “international buyers” …

    #3820 73 days ago

    Dialed In LE goes for $7500, and this community is ready to pay $11K now for a JJP LE.

    The irony is amazing.

    #3821 73 days ago

    wonder which acdc is going to go for the most ....

    The curse of the non-licensed.

    (and the dad jeans...and the gameplay...and the terrible theme)

    #3823 73 days ago

    Hobbit LE Black Arrow out the door for $10250. Not too far off current asking prices…

    988 Verne's World Pinball Machine Spinball SS $4,700
    989 Jolly Park Pinball Machine Spinball SS $5,700

    Well damn. I would have gone to 4800-5000. Oh well, no , damn.

    You did not miss anything

    Vernes is toast
    Spinball I can get you for halve that price
    From Europe

    #3827 73 days ago
    Quoted from rvdv:

    You mean : milucianos ?

    Found it in my email. Wallapop, not much on there now though. Just some flipper bats and coils. Spain probably ran out of stuff since you imported everything already.

    When it was holding so long at 6500, I was very tempted.

    #3829 73 days ago

    So far they seem to be pedal to the metal, straight on through, no meal or restroom breaks.

    #3830 73 days ago

    oh good ... the ACDCBIBLE is still appreciated LOL

    #3831 73 days ago

    ACDC BIB gets love at 18,500, hammer. I didn't see that coming.

    Those Aussies love their AC/DC

    maybe the bidders were Australian ..... that was still worth it to be shipped to OZ

    #3834 73 days ago
    Quoted from srt-8:

    No it’s not.

    $30,000 Australian dollars plus shipping and taxes is “not worth it”

    The bidder was on the auction floor.

    People from most of Australia can’t fly anywhere due to COVID.

    They had technical difficulties and didn't want dead air.

    I have my coupons ready!

    #3841 73 days ago

    Anyone know how many people are present at the actual auction? Curious if it's less people than two weeks ago.

    #3842 73 days ago

    LOL aerosmith LE goes for more than iron maiden LE

    #3843 73 days ago
    Quoted from srt-8:

    I'm trying to determine the age of the buying demographic here, I think Batman 66 will be revealing.

    #3844 73 days ago

    Did they ever do a *lasting* fix for the Mist magnet crapping out on BSD ?

    #3845 73 days ago

    The aerosmith LE's sat NIB at distributers for ages here in Australia .... whereas the iron maiden LE's had a wait list and virtually impossible to get

    #3846 73 days ago
    Quoted from Asmig:

    Terminator 2 as well. I think that will go for $8,500+ just because of theme for the younger money.

    #3847 73 days ago

    Batman 86 was really lame as originally delivered, but they improved the code a lot as time went on.

    #3848 73 days ago
    Quoted from Reality_Studio:

    About 40 people.

    #3849 73 days ago

    Didn't Gorgar and Big Guns taunt the players?

    #3850 73 days ago

    Funhouse down again. Some things never change.
