Dudes, all games are getting expensive. I remember selling my Dredd for 1500, my Fish Tales for 2200. Good luck getting that kind of deal today. The hobby blew up, and so have the prices. Yelling in someone's thread isn't going to change anything. I used to be pissed about it too, but it didn't change anything. Prices kept going up. Its partly why I'm not as super into pinball as I used to be. In my opinion its a rich man's hobby now. Which is fine, its just not something Im interested in participating in anymore if that's the case. I can buy a new pinball machine or I can re-do my bathroom. I get a lot more use out of the bathroom.

I personally love my Congo. Its almost perfect, clearcoated, and looks newer than my Stern games! GLWS! Im sure the buyer is gonna love it!

I just bought another great game for under 1k.

Also sold a fun game this week for 800...

Just sayin, plenty of great games for cheap out there . Iam far from rich and still havin lots of fun in the hobby, possibly more fun than when i was buying the more expensive stuff.

Your comment is as worthless as tits on a bull unless you mention the names of the games you bought.

I bought a fun $490 pin too....a raven

There are plenty of great games out there for us poor dudes.
I sold special force and that is also a fun game.

Yep. I know quite a few guys with shockingly large collections of top tier titles. The only reason they were able to acquire those collections was because they got into the hobby 10+ years ago. There is no way your average joe could put together a collection like that today. It would cost a small fortune. The prices have become insane. I wish this wasn't the case, but it is. For some reason, certain people simply refuse to accept this fact (unless, of course, they have something to sell).

Just in the past 4 years since ive been in the hobby prices have went crazy. I have some very nice restored pins that i could /(have been)selling for much more than i paid. The only reason i have the collection i do is bc i make a decent amount off most my pins when i sell them , bc i keep them long enough that they go up in value. Still i have much more money tied up in this hobby than i ever wld of thought. O well lol

you can go left or you can go right!

back on track. HIPPO"S

prices have gone up and that's fine - in fact it's a good sign for everyone as they are appreciating. Congo at this price though - well that's a stretch but what's great is that the market speaks for itself which is why this game is still for sale. It's also why the other guy selling a congo for 5k+ is still selling his after months. Will someone come by who is diehard for a congo and get this - maybe......and that's why pinball is great.
