Quoted from V4Vendetta:

I don't care if you price your item high but what I have problem is your misleading description that would trick a newbie buyer to pay a full premium price for a average machine thinking they are getting a immaculate machine as you say.

Anyone in their right mind can look at the shabby collection of pics and see that it is not immaculate. Unless they don't know the definition of the word and are blind to all the scratches and wear. This ad is obviously a joke.

Quoted from wantdataeast:

If this is such a common machine in this condition and the pinside price of $2500 is accurate? Where the hell are they?

You don't see them because they actually sold. I sold my Taxi for $1700 in about a week's time. If I priced it like some have suggested I'd probably still be waiting. Fairly priced sells in some reasonable time, if your intent is to sell the game. Overpriced, and it will sit. So, why is yours not sold yet?

Quoted from wantdataeast:

If you were in a rush to sell your Taxi... selling it low was probably your better option. I am not hurting to sell the Baywatch, I am in no rush.

No, no rush. My buyer had already expressed a higher offer than what I sold it to him for. I countered that I felt the fair price for its condition was $1700. I gave him a fair deal, which makes him feel good and me feel good. I certainly could have price it a lot higher and waited longer to "maximize" my profit - but that's not how I treat this hobby.

Quoted from PismoArcade:

Dude is really hanging on to the "600 plays since 2006" line.
I thought that he would eventually come to realize that everyone is right about how meaningless that is.
Guess not.

That audit is also resettable.

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

. this is a great game, easily should be in the top 40

Well, its not. Its not in top 40 on IPDB, either. I thought I overpaid a bit for my FT(Just under $3k) wayyy better game in wayyy better condition. #19 in the top 300, if you care about those lists.

I find it amusing that on some other threads you get 1 or 2 price police, on this one its like...

Quoted from poppapin:

FWIW the new Mr. Pinball price guide has it at $1950
I know it's not THE bible, but I like to use it as another price factor.

Sure, but that's not the price for nearly imamaculate with only 600 plays

#395 1 year ago
Quoted from FatPanda:

Do people actually B/S/T on Mr. Pinball? Are there games that are listed there and not here or CL?
When I was super new, that's where I would look before I knew any better. Have not looked at it for > 1yr at least. I don't even think about it when browsing for games anymore.

Yes there are some games listed there that are not listed elsewhere. Once in a while, you can find a reasonable deal. I feel the biggest problem with Mr. Pinball is the lag time for posting and pulling ads - it's often several days before they show up. If they've listed the same game anywhere else, its often already gone. I bought one game from a Mr. Pinball ad once.

For sale: Baywatch ...nearly imamaculate! | Pinside Forum
Apr 28, 2018 - Geeza H C .... I'm colorblind! I just sold my Raven for $3500 to fund this purchase ... (and yes, before anyone asks, it was imamaculate).

Quoted from cosmokramer:

Its no longer imamaculate?

Well, it never was nearly.

Too bad he didn't take his own philosophy. Most of us have flipped machines at one time or another, but most of us have put some value into them: repairs, shopping, etc...

Quoted from wantdataeast:

You will be buying non-functional machines 95% of the time. Learn to repair them. Resell them on Craiglist for slightly more after you have repaired one. Your $300 pin can sell for $600-$700. Then like someone else said rinse and repeat.
Done right and with persistence, and hard work you will have very little perhaps nothing by flipping several machines in this manner.

Quoted from Chuckles37:

If I buy a used taxicab with 500,000 miles on it, park it in a barn a drive it once a year for a decade, I wouldn't try to sell it claimig "only 100 miles in the last ten years!" Who cares? It's still a high mileage car, except it probably has even more issues from neglect now.

Exactly. Nor would you price it higher than any other taxicab has ever sold for in that condition, and maybe you would make it a little bit more presentable for resale and photographs. Is this your taxi?

Isn't it about time the seller dropped the price another dollar and told us about how it only has 600 plays in the last 12 years?

I'm going to buy it and cover the sides of it with printouts of this thread, it'll be a historical one of a kind with that provenance. And I won't install the legs, either.

#1348 1 year ago

In a nutshell, your free to ask what you want for any pin....but come on.

OP doesn't represent pin very well, Not does he add any value to it, just a money grubbing flip that does not help anyone in the hobby. It's greedy and has contributing effects to causing prices to rise. There's potential Baywatch owners out there shying away because it's overpriced, and those with extra deep pockets making bona fide offers and getting turned down. Not welcome in MY hobby!

#1374 1 year ago
Quoted from tandem2:

There are 2 STILL available on eBay for 3795, and the both have legs

Yeah, but they are not imamaculate with only 600 plays in the last 12 years...you'll never see another like it.

I've been looking for an imamaculate pin with only 600 plays in the past 12 years, with no legs, damage, untouched, and filled with dirt, legs optional.
--- anything BUT a Baywatch!!!

I really wanted a data East....until I saw this post. I’ll never look at baywatch the same again.
Thanks OP!!!!

There a few much better Data East games.

#2042 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

Baywatch is made by Sega.
It is also an awesome game (despite this donkey FS ad)

Sega took over DE in 1994, and the boardset is known as DE/Sega - Essentially the same company. Tech-wise, the repair pages lump SEGA and DE together as well. Even though my 94 Maverick is"officially" billed as Data East, it is a crossover game. There is no official logo on the Maverick for either DE or SEGA, the SEGA logo comes up on the DMD splash, and the DE logo is on the shooter rod handle.

So, yeah, I'll give you the SEGA logo on the Baywatch - under the hood its both SEGA and DE.
