    Hey guys,

    I just found an earthshaker asking price $1400 here in California. He is asking book price but all it says on the posting is that "large display not working". I have put in an e-mail last night & have not heard back yet. Here are the pics of the game (not very good) & will try and get more, don't know much about it yet due to no response. Also not sure if this is the game where the buildings sink into playfield.

    What do you think?

    Hi Loren !

    All the people i have met say me it's a good game - I bought it - Unfortunately , mine is out at this moment - I played 5 minutes and fuse blew.. Not found the soluce . but i don't have regrets.
    Try it , check if it shake or not (is the motor always installed??)
    I'm always surprised by your price.Especially if the display is out .
    (And always surprised by the mention : simple and easy to fix - Why the people don't fix before selling...) . Remove the price of a display directly !

    In fact , decide in relation with your financial capacity !?

    For me => The machine = ok , and price = nok

    I bought mine about a year agor for $800 and the center ramp is damaged and needs replaced, but still works. I bought it for my GF since this is one of her favorite games, even though it is not on my favorite list. If you like the game go for it but the price sounds a little high.

    OK guys thanks for the input....I will wait and see if I ever hear back from the seller on this.

    I was never a big fan of EarthShaker I guess the BG just turns me away....
    BV comes in around 1400 & the sinking building version you mentioned 1650 (-100 made)
    Good luck with it Loren -play the hell out of it first

    Main thing to look for loren3233 is the backglass. Its probably the hardest part to replace. It doesn't look right if its cracked or broken since its one of those rare glass panels. If the ES backglass is in good shape, your already half way there.

    If he's asking list price, I'd get a good tally of everything wrong with it and start deducting from the price from there.

    Yeah Id pay that if it were one of the first 500 to have the moving building, however Williams thought it was to exspensive and started a new run, It's funny Earth Shaker was the pinball in the Walshes house in the Beverly Hills 90210 entry way of there house
