I'm in shock about prices again...again.
I was obsessed with Monster Bash before and considered a scratch build, there is an old thread somewhere on here about it.
I got as far as seeing a $1k Frank assembly on Ebay and called it quits. Just too expensive. There was actually a disassembled game in boxes going for $7k, it was crazy.
As soon as possible I made the deposit on the remake. MBrLE still sits in the basement. Been very happy with it.
I missed out on a beautiful WH2O for $3.5k before, its been on the wish list ever since.
But the current market is just depressing as hell.
So many White Water pins for sale now too, just like all the original MB that suddenly showed up in the market for crazy prices ahead of the announcement. Maybe CGC is up to something, I don't think so, but it would be great if they were.
Has anybody ever made one of these from parts? What would be the cheapest donor machine? Ideally something with a few key common mechs. I know the topper is unobtainium, most of them out there are disintegrating anyway. They should at least remake the topper.
I wouldn't be surprised if somebody was to try to sell just the original topper for like >$5k. Nothing in this market surprises me anymore.
