    Im talking fully restored with new playfields, plastics, ramps, decals, etc.

    Ive seen some people rip MM apart lately, but wouldnt fully restored ones still fetch good money?
    I do own an original MM and im locked in to a MM LE, but ive noticed some insulting peeps bashing on MM prices on CL, Ebay, etc. Does this affect AFM prices as well a Cactus Canyon prices?

    thanks!

    To the extent the market thinks they might be remade and when, it can/does/could/should affect prices.

    ^^^^^^^

    Only thing remaining to be seen is how much they will be affected.

    Time will tell. Good thing I love both games.

    I love both games also. I am considering selling my restored AFM, but if I dont im ok with that also.
    Just like the game too much, but I dont need two of them.

    If I had an original restored AFM I think I would hang onto it. If PPS remakes the game it won't be cheap and I'm guessing most would prefer a restored/CQ original IMHO.

    Why would you give up a restored original? That makes no sense to me. I have and will restore the "games in speculation" WPC titles and would NEVER trade them for a remake.

    I'm gunna sit back and wait out MMr, I want to see how the new system performs. The new boards look a little spooky but I'm sure they will work fine. If MMr turns out good I will be on board for CC or maybe one of the next titles.

    Who did the restoration work will really make a difference in price on the open market.

    I agree about the boards. Im guessing everyone is waiting.. cause if the game plays like shit, then prices are gonna change quite a bit.

    More than they sold for new, so I would have to say yes.

    $3500 is more than they sold new

    There won't be any produced if they don't play like the original. That's assured by the WMS signoff.

    IMO a 'nice' original will settle in around $500 more that what a used MMR fetches. Restored ones will still fetch a premium, but not as much as they used to... maybe $2,000 more? Again, just my opinion.
