8 TOMs on the marketplace. Possibly in anticipation for a possible remake?

I'm shopping mine now, and I'll admit the thought has crossed my mind since seeing the MBr pics. I had a restored MB, and I'm glad it's gone now after seeing how cool MBr turned out. But, I had more than what an MBr LE would cost into my restored original. Unless CGC drops their prices I could mod the heck out of my TOM and still have less than the cost of an LE model if it ever gets released. Anybody else had similar thoughts?

hmm...you also gotta wonder if it's just so many games out and people are cashing in? I feel like I've seen more than a few Wh20 recently too.

I think this is the reason. The higher dollar games seem to be showing up to free up space and cash for all the great titles hitting the market.

That makes more sense. I’ve noticed the WH2O’s too and been tempted to get a nicer one, but I’d rather have a new title. So much to choose from.

It is odd that some of them have even been appearing on Freecycle lately

If you can't sell it, you got to give that shlt away

It's a buyers market right now. I'm never selling mine but if I did now would not be the time to do so.

You just gotta wonder when the money for NIB pins will finally run out. Its getting closer when you start seeing all the great classics in mint shape start to trickle into the market.

It's no secrete TOM is on the list to be remade. Probably in the next two releases. I've been on the lookout for a really nice TOM for my buddy and just came across one local for $6500. Had a ton of mods , LEDS and just shopped. Knowing it is going to be remade I told him to hold off on anything over $6000 on a mint one.

I believe its an indication of a saturated market.
Just look at the auction sale prices as of late and the amount of time games are staying for sale.

No question. The good news is the hobby is continuing to grow so as more people enter things should level out. The barcades are helping introduce a whole new audience to our hobby.

Just wait until March when DR dumps 5 new titles on the market...plus a new game from Stern (or two), plus a new announcement from Spooky, JJP and who knows what else. 2019 = 1999?

Is indeed. But prices arn't reflecting that yet, so inventories are building up somewhere?!

That’s it folks.

The bubble has burst.

I think what's keeping this thing going is people like me who are relatively new (2 years in) that get addicted and now you have my money in the game too.

Good news is that this hobby generally brings in people that are doing ok and now you have money streams that based on the better economy are doing better and here we are.

Short answer is new blood is important. I just can't believe how many new games are out there. It's an amazing time to be addicted.

#15 6 months ago

Well let's hope there are enough of you, and welcome to the addiction.

The bubble!! It’s burst. Too late people. Sell me all your games for pennies on the dollar.

Dump is the key word.

No one is going to buy their garbage.

tbh that wouldn't be the worst thing that could happen...

All I'm hearing in this thread is someone here is going to sell me their ToM for $100. I'll send you my paypal email.

#20 6 months ago

Yep. Time to dump games. Send me pms and I will sadly get stuck with all the worthless games.

at least in Germany ToMs seem to be searched, not dumped...

Maybe because the hot magician looks German (well, maybe)!
