I'm going to look at a Demolition Man PB and wanted to know what's a fair price? Asking $2500 with LED's and looks in pretty good condition. Any know probably areas to be aware of? Also, I've never played the game and it seems like people either like it or hate it, thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Pretty boring game, not much to do.1800 tops. A few years ago, you couldn't sell them for 1500.

I know of 2 that just sold at $2,300. Seems to be about right for that title. Rarely do you see them sell for much higher or much lower. One of the more stable priced games in the hobby.

I've enjoyed playing it. To each his own. Don't know how it would hold up long term in a collection but there is always that demo time software you can change it to. Has a lot of ramp shots which I like.

Personally, having owned one, I would not pay more than $2100 in our current market.
But if you love it you know it's worth to you better than us.
$2500 seems high to me on this title.

I def like mine. Love or hate game.

There's a near mint one near me with LEDs, side mirrors, etc for $2300.

I have no time on a standard Demo Man, but I LOVE my Demo Man on Steroids. The pin has an awesome layout, with great ramps, combos and flow. Surprisingly, I immediately preferred the gun handles.

For $2000, give or take a few hundred, it's a lot of pin for the money.

Just to close out this thread. I ended up purchasing a different Demolition Man pinball machine. Paid $1700. It was broken: DMD driver board, bridge rectifier(s), and a few other little issues. So for less than $100 it's a working machine. It still needs a really good cleaning, shopping, and LED's.

Not my cup of tea, but shopped and working in nice shape it is a low to mid 2k game. What people were willing to pay a few years ago is meaningless. 6 years ago I could not get 1k for a shopped t2. Now people would clamor for a nice one at 2k. Market changed.

Yeah, for internet history, I just purchased a DM for $1800, fully working with LEDs and upgraded speakers/sub. Nice cabinet and playfield. Only problem is the opto for the drop chute / popper doesn't work all the time. Likely just needs adjustment.
