For sale: Baywatch - only 600 plays in past 12 years

Added: April 9th, 2018 Re-listed: 1 time
Condition: As is

Item description

(All new lower price!)

This was in the same home non-smoking home for 12 years and in that time it saw only 600 plays (600 plays since 2006). And from the look of it, it saw very little play before that.

This is the lowest play machine Baywatch you are likely to find for a long while.

Playfield is magnificent, same on plastics. All switches work, Translight great, cabinet great, clean inside. Plays will no know issues.

It will need new rubbers, boards serviced (reflowed and new caps) I am happy to service the boards for you if you prefer. One of the blue pop bumper bases does has crack on the bottom under the playfield and needs to be replaced. I have purchased a replacement and will replaced prior to sale.

Like I said, it saw only 600 plays since 2006. It had batteries dated 2006 on board, and audited only 600 games. The guy that owns it didn't even know it had batteries on the board and lacked any knowledge of how to even find the audit menu...much less reset its game count.

Trade consider for nearly any top 40 pinside games. And would consider top 15 pinside games in project or better condition.

Lol.... almost perfect but needs
It will need new rubbers, boards serviced (reflowed and new caps), and bulbs service. Has one issue on one coil... and I think I can handle that prior to sale. one of the blue pop bumper bases has has crack on the bottom under the playfield and needs to be replaced. (yes that is correct, other than wipe it down I have done literally nothing to it since picking it up)

Agreed LOL, More then 600 plays too with flipper button wear. Fix all the issues first. 3500 and not even shopped out

#6 75 days ago
Quoted from wantdataeast:

Probably as close to a HUO condition game as you will ever find. You don't see a Baywatch in this shape... ever. And I am sorry/not sorry but I am asking a premium price on it.

Sorry/not sorry but at your price you are going to get some reality check.

Based on the wear around the flipper buttons, cracked/missing plastics, missing topper, and raised inserts; you have not seen many HUO games and definitely not any HUO Sega games. Nice average condition example and $2500 is more realistic on where to even start your asking.

I own a Baywatch. Good luck with your sale but this is not the gold mine flip you thought you had on your hands. It does raise concern for the ethics of your advertising tactics for future sales. I understand that some try to upsell, but WOW the disparity of what you have advertised and reality on this is starkly different.

#7 75 days ago

i agree, im getting ready to list mine. it's nicer than this and it needs nothing. i wouldn't dream of asking mid 3's.

#8 75 days ago

Wow this is a bold ad. Reminding the buyer that he has done literally nothing since picking this up could be the icing though.

If you don’t want machine don’t buy... it’s pretty much that simple. If you want to bitch about my price go ahead. Find another machine like this with 600 plays in 12 years.

Personally when I get a machine like this (or for that matter a vehicle)I enjoy doing some basic maintenance that sort of bonds me to the machine. Any doofus can reflow solder and replace capacitors. We are talking about five hours worth of of maintenance to anybody who knows what they’re doing.

Newsflash most everybody can replace a few bulbs and a set of rubbers.

Nobody’s giving me a price reality check here. I have already had two people contact me already. How many ridiculously priced LE Strerns are posted on this website selling for thousands more than they paid for machines are less than a few years old?

Bring on the hate.. I could care less. I’m here to sell a fantastic pinball machine which has never had its boards hacked.

Then maybe you should do it? Especially before asking 3500!

Not many? I don't see any actually. Maybe 4-5 years ago, but the days of buying a Stern LE and flipping it are over. Well.. maybe we'll see a bit of that come back with Iron Maiden LE

#13 75 days ago

If his is 3500, mine would be 5K easy
"nearly immaculate", followed by "needs" is a very very loose usage of both "nearly" and "immaculate" just sayin'

#14 75 days ago

The wear at inserts, the scoop, drops and top of switch where the ramps drop would indicate it has more than 600 plays. I think that it was rom updated before you picked it up, which should of cleared the total plays out. Just FYI, all the wear looks like normal wear on a baywatch. Mine has it and it is a re-import from Germany. But I would agree, the cabinet looks really really nice.

I'm still curious if the stern lollipop rails can be retrofitted to the baywatch/segas

Of course it is more than 600 plays in its life. I said it’s had 600 please since the batteries were installed that date was written on that the battery has seen in the picture. I pulled those old batteries installed new batteries and the game totals and all of the audits were gone.

I took the pictures of the audits before I pull the batteries to show how many games it’s had on it and that 12 year time period.

You might want to review with the word immaculate means. That state of condition that’s permanent. You can have a car that isn’t nearly immaculate condition with old oil in the engine or dry rotted tires. those things are easily replaced.

You'd be better off listing on Facebook. Pinside gets more and more toxic when it comes to selling pins that are priced higher than the PRICE GODS feel they should be. Hit facebook...

It comes down to this. I could care less what anyone else Baywatch pinball machine looks like or how many rubber sharks toys or David Hasselhoff action figures they have on the playfield, or what great topper the back box has, or how much the $100 worth of LED's has increased its value.

If you see the $3.5k asking price and are confused. Let me explain it. Some collector's ideal machine is a machine with extremely low plays. Okay? Is that simple enough? Also, many people want a machine that is as close to original as possible. Believe it or not, the concept that it is unlikely that anyone has ever hit some of these boards with a soldering iron is very desirable to some collectors

MY target audience for this sale is that person. A collector that does want a machine that has been routed and abused... then fixed back up to as close to original condition.

Let me say again, in case I was unclear. 600 plays in 12 years. Look at the pics and if you know what you are looking for you will see original coils and a lack of wear that is very indicative of extremely low plays.

Sell your Baywatch pin for what ever you want. If this machine does not sell... that is cool I am in no rush to sell it. I would be just as happy to trade it.

And you do have every right to do so!

I would agree with teekee. You should list on some local places, or ebay. Pinside can be a mayhem, however it will get in front of peoples eyes. You could also contact any local arcade retail place and see if they have a list of customers with games they want and make a deal that way. I've been hit up from a retailer and they bought a game and sold it to their customer. Always options!

You are not totally wrong brother. BUT the thing about pinside is that this is the site where collectors looking for something like a HUO or extremely low played machine also go.

I dont think anyone has an issue with your asking price. It is the stark difference between your asking and the reality of the condition of your machine.
A real HUO low play Baywatch in near immaculate condition can easily sell for 3500 or more to the right type of collector.

However, your game is not a low use HUO game. It has a missing plastic over the drops, pf chips in a few areas with missing art, some slightly raised inserts with edge cracking and at least start of ghosting from clear lifting, and wear around the flipper buttons on the cab. That is all from a 2 min glance at the photos provided and I am sure I would see more in person.

Your game appears to be a nice average condition BW which got lots of play the first 11 years of its life and then only 600 plays the past 12 years.

Games with real low use dont have that much funk under the playfield.

Ok so now this game has been routed and abused in the past. But the fact that is has only supposedly had 600 plays in the last 12 years means any damage or abuse prior to that dooesn't matter and it's worth $3500. Got it.

#28 75 days ago

Double agree, nothing special about this Baywatch. Just average 2000-2300 machine. $3500 LOL

If it was 600 plays since the batteries were changed, how do you know it didn't have 10k prior to that?

So are the legs included for $3500, or does that only net the cardboard diaper? How on earth is it easier to unload, lay the thing flat on the ground like that, set up and turn on... then presumably pack and pick and lift all over again?

Premium ask on middling condition, and not only could you not be arsed to do the simpleton basic repairs, but can't even put the freakin' legs on?? How does THAT appeal to your "target audience"?

From gross misrepresentation to questionable tactics, listings like this don't do anything to improve KY's laughingstock reputation. I'm suddenly again embarrassed to live as far I do from Lexington.

#43 75 days ago

Honestly, it's not in too bad of shape for an average example.

However, the problem is that you're are trying to get a top dollar premium for it as if it were in absolutely mint 11/10 condition, which it's not, unfortunately.

Priced right, this game will undoubtedly sell.

If it sells in a day or two, you priced it right. If it sells in 10 minutes, you may have priced it too cheap. If it takes a week or more, then it's probably too high, and it might be a good idea to lower the price a bit.

#44 75 days ago

As a Baywatch owner, I say good luck with the sale.
