    You really shouldn't be concerned about things like remakes and machines holding value. Besides very new games and rare exceptions, pinball machines prices are relatively stable. The market on a 20 year old coin op game usually doesn't fall out from under it and cut the price in half.

    It would have to be a sweet STTNG to be worth $4700 though. I paid over $1000 less than that just last year on Pinside for mine fully working. I'd prefer the STTNG, but for the price TOM is much more reasonable.

    I think you should aim lower on budget still. You can spend $100s repairing and maintaining a pinball machine. A game bought off Craigslist might be ready to play according to a homeowner, but it's unlikely to be ready to play to a pinball player.

    Lol at actually getting 10 replacement trunks. Thought that would've been some typo or miscommunication.

    Quoted from KyleCat:

    Anyone ever use hobbyroms.com to get WPC roms? I am looking to get 1.3X and get the anti ghosting code compiled in there too. Curious if this guy is trust worthy or not. From what it looks like on other pin forums they swear by him.

    He burned my T2 and HS2 with patched roms that I sent him. Very reasonable price.
