And maybe the fact the Fathom is build form "scrap" and isn't 100 percent original ?
However I can assure buyer won't be disappointed with both this games !

#11 3 months ago

price drop bump !

#12 3 months ago

Wow - I think these are great - look better than new. Certainly evident from the time spent on the cabinets on both machines. I think this is a good deal for anyone who wants to pick it up.

#13 3 months ago

Bump cause they are gorgeous

#14 3 months ago

I thought these were way overpriced until I looked at the pictures. Those are B E A U T I F U L !!! Wish I had the money to own them! Very Nice!!

Th, you given any thought to breaking them up as opposed to keep dropping the price? I would think there's more buyers out there that would want one as opposed to both machines (i.e. someone already owns a Fathom and want Centaur or vice versa).

Nonetheless BUMP

Exactly! But as a seller selling both at the same time is a bonus as it makes it a lot easier. However, these are two of the most sought after Bally games of this era! Would be best to have prices for individual sale and then offer a discounted price if someone would buy both at the same time.

They were in the USA, I am a buyer.

Look into shipping as you may be surprised as to the cost. When I purchased a Fathom from the seller it wasn't that much more then if I were to ship a game from the West Coast to the East Coast. Also being the you're buying two it's a little cheaper then buying one. Lastly, you don't pay tax as you're shipping a machine that was manufactured in the US back into the US.

When I purchased I went through Freightcenter.com. I shopped around for the cheapest rate and then wound up going back to freightcenter with the lowest quote and they matched it. The good thing with them was, they did all the paperwork related to the shipping.
If you want to look into it the rep I used was Shannon Donahue Sdonahue@freightcenter.com

Thanks for the info. No reflection on the seller but, I would not want to take the shipping risk from outside the USA. Probably, not a problem but not one I could get comfortable with.

I mean.... they're both awesome. Doubt it would be hard to find someone to oblige.

Yeah l completely understand as I was the same way. Wound up just doing it and to my surprise I had absolutely no issues. I shipped it by boat so the overall time it took to get to me was about a month. The box itself didn't have a single crease or mark on it. Even had the OP put a few bottles of beer in it .... figured if the machine got messed up I would least have a few good beers to drink! Of course we all know shipping is a roll of the dice!

Thanks for your support and cooperation
And you're right , no price lowering anymore or I'm gonna cry .
If someone is interested in a single game :
Fathom 6300 usd
Centaur 6100 usd
Both at once : 12250 usd ( final price )

Grab them now as they become hard to find here in Europe as well !
