You know I respect the op but there is cybergoonie something to think about it's two grand more for basically cosmetics...... Good luck with the sale Brian you're the best ReStorer in Minnesota.......

#52 3 years ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

I think it has more to due with the saturation of all the new games available (or soon to be available) that is driving secondary pricing down.

The games that are coming down are the games that had inflated prices that should not have been over the original price anyways. (IM, SM, AC/DC).

#53 3 years ago

what a buyer has to decide is how much more the LE, cool trim/armor, graphics, shaker, upgraded sub, and original latch system are worth....a NIB premium delivered is $6800 without the shaker....

#54 3 years ago

Don’t forget # plaque and cert. signed playfield, real mirrored backglass, and metal leg protectors

There are players out there and then there are collectors out there. I should know. I'm a collector. This game would not be for a player. It would be for a collector.

I will say again, this game was made before Stern switched cabinet makers and playfield makers. There are no issues with either one.

#57 3 years ago

Ok, I have been looking at this machine and could pay the 8500. My latest machines are typically LE (GB LE, Transformer LE) and have high end SM, etc. Also, I have seen the recent value go down (if I were to sell them today - which I am not). (Of course, this is a great time to buy people!)

I am personally struggling dishing out 1700 more for this machine vs 6800 for NIB. Ok, so maybe I spend another 200 on shaker, etc. The rest of the cosmetics just are not that great to get me there (agree it does have this things listed above, plus a topper).

My question - I do know Stern was doing something different with playfield and cabinets. Pinsiders - has this gotten better recently with SW or AS or ACDC VE premiums (most importantly). Someone mentioned that they were doing something different (to improve the quality) - looking to validate this - some facts.

FYI - either way - the latest ACDC premiums come with the SAM system still !

Also, the machine above looks great - only flaw would be that the main plastic window is a bit cloudy. And with the new HD glass - might be a so-so view. (Probably, me just being real picky on my machines).

#58 3 years ago

Looks like they are adding brackets - like years ago.

Price lowered to $8000. Anything less than that and I'll keep it.

wow, these sell in Europe for 10k+

Now just $1200 more than a premium- If I were in the market for an Ac/DC, this would be my choice without question.

-I've experienced the new cabinets problems first hand. Wood quality down substantially and change in process on new cabs. Instead of upgrading the wood and correcting the process, it appears they have just installed a bolt to keep them together(really)

-Current playfields, too many issues as of late to say the problems are corrected vs no issues on this one.

-Value-They won't make anymore LE's and supply will always be limited. Anytime there's demand on premiums, they'll remake.

-Cloudy plastic can be cleared up a bit with some elbow grease

-The drummer is missing from the VE. Not sure what that's worth, but I'd rather have the full band.

I thought they could not be removed?
Wow the HUO market is really spiraling down, I cant wait to rebuild the collection I just sold l.

They cannot, I just took some Novice 2 to mine and made a huge difference. The market did come down, but I think it bottomed. I had AS and GB for sale at great prices with not much action and right after I put pendings on them a bunch of people came forward wanting to buy. Same with my Rob Zombie.

It goes with the old saying

The pinball you looked at today, and want to think about until tomorrow, may be the same pinball someone else looked at yesterday and will BUY TODAY!!

Here are the differences between the VE Premium and the original (Not LE)...originals have the spring lock down bar, larger sub woofer (12" vs 10"), drummer is included in the artwork/ toy, wood back box. The VE has the removable lower play field window, new metal back box design with the angled DMD (reduces glare significantly). The graphics on the back box around the DMD, latch lock down bar, drummer is not in the game....

Got more interest at $8000. Also a few people asking questions. I'll just say this, first one to say they'll take it, gets it. Not the first to ask questions.

And yes, that price is firm. I'll keep it for anything less than that.

You should make them submit a video...

And again, I'm not interested in a trade. Gotta make room for a TNA coming this weekend.

Sounds like you should have been nicer to your kids and maybe they would have gotten you a bigger room at the old folks home.

Nice!! Speaking of kids, if this doesn't sell, it goes to one of their homes. One already has four games and the other three. I'll just sell one of theirs to make room for this one. They both love it.

#75 3 years ago

If i lived closer i woud stalk BK!!!

#76 3 years ago

Only 200 of these made so it's a genuine LE.

If I lived in same town I would be a buyer at $8000.

Way better than a premium.

Well that's extremely awesome of you! Hope you move it soon! I dream of the day that I can put a TNA in my game room. My Wife on the other hand wouldn't be nearly as happy. If your kids just outright refuse and you haven't found a buyer I'll store her for ya free of charge

#78 3 years ago

Great deal! If I didn’t have a premium, this would be sold!

#80 3 years ago

Anyone interested in shipping...I've shipped dozens of restored games and living in MN, it always runs around $450, no matter where in the US.

#81 3 years ago

Seriously thinking about doing this and selling my premium. Just trying to figure out if I want to go through the hassle.

It's a little disappointing that it's not a BK restoration.

I was thinking the same thing but by the time I sold my premium this will probably be long gone.

Difference is, I'd buy it first, then sell the other one.

#84 3 years ago

Thought about that too but my wife still doesn't understand why I have 2 Getaways in the basement. I don't need duplicates of all my pins

I did wipe it down, Boob.

What I thought someone said you had two, oh wait, those weren't LTBR machines... never mind. I am having all kinds of Bryan Kelly issues today. Congratulations on the sale.

How many sheep would this have taken to purchase?

Quoted from dsuperbee:

$8050 which includes shipping prep. Buyer didn't want the topper so I knocked off $200.

Now I'll soon have a Matt Mckee topper for sale.
