Quoted from Mistermoberg:

To have the nads to ask double the price of the game - you better have spent the $125 and powdercoated them legs.

That's not a restoration and doesn't really make sense.

No, not part of a restoration - it’s a “mod” but so are colored LEDs.

Quoted from flynnibus:

I just don't know how you get to 8k invested unless you were paying someone labor rates all the way through... or you paid like 3k for that hard to find playfield.. and paid a ton for other stuff too.

Let me do the math
Play field $1200 , clear coat 300, hd glass 270, topper 200, decal set 300, coin door 200, color dmd 380, side graphics 75, led lights 250, shooter rod 100, rails 100, lock down bar and assembly 250 , motor 80 , plastic set 400, legs bolts corners 125 , play field swap 1000, price of the original machine 3200

Just look at it this way... He doesn't even hold a candle to the Dude that was selling the $65,0000 TZ.

Like TZ isn't 10x the game!?

I say this with seriousness, and am genuinely intrigued, what inspired you take on this project?

fun fact.... for anyone that’s considers “Player” to be one of their top titles in this hobby, Gilligan’s Island is actually a pretty fun game.

Your first mistake was putting that much money into this game.

Your second mistake was not having intentions on keeping it the rest of your life after you did put all that into it.

Your third mistake was expecting to get your money back on it.

Your fourth mistake was making your ad listing into a thread.

#61 1 year ago

Beautiful restore. Great job.

#62 1 year ago

Cool post, thanks for sharing!

Is this the pro or the limited edition Honeybees version?

I think you got ripped off.....

#66 1 year ago

Maybe try listing it on Ebay as Pinside may not be the target market for this game. The same guy who is paying 13k+ for a Beatles pin might buy a restored Gilligan. Just my two cents

Quoted from Dave_rautio:

May I ask why you’re selling it then?

Quoted from fisherdaman:

Inflation has hit Pinside - It'll cost you 6 cents now......

#69 1 year ago

How did he fit a Stern premium into that machine?

#70 1 year ago

Save this to be buried in. You may get your money out if you play it literally 20,000 times or 42 days straight without breaks.

When I did his math I came up with$ 8430. You're $2370 short from what you're asking.

But you left out the cost of the picture and framing so that must explain the excess

#72 1 year ago

The $2,370 is for the old parts (playfield, glass, etc.) which I assume would be included.

#73 1 year ago

I do have one actual legitimate question what's with the drop targets they look like peel and stick stickers is that the way it is on the newer games I'm not too familiar with new games I assume they don't paint it on there anymore

Gilligan just has standups, not drops - but yeah, they're cheap stickers on the front. That's a really common thing these days. MODZ YO.

Okay thanks for educating me I appreciate it

#76 1 year ago
Quoted from Dave_rautio:

Hey I get it all your negative comments , this machine is not for everybody. I like nice perfect machines, where other people are ok playing in crap machines. To each his own.

TOTALLY understand that and TOTALLY respect it! I'm doing the same thing with a couple machines for EXACTLY the same reason. I also have already accepted that I'll get nowhere near half back of the extra money I put into them. I'm ok with that, because I plan to never ever sell them. If I'm forced to, I'm prepared to take the fleecing, in terms of dollars. My compensation, in that case, will be having owned and played perfect games for however long I could.

#77 1 year ago

Guys it comes with a coconut radio. That is the difference

I guess it would do well here then...

I would have thought a base game at 3200 would have been damn near perfect already

Quoted from Dave_rautio:

play field swap 1000,

This is labor correct?

#81 1 year ago

I think there has been a lot of over priced games lately but I cant really say this is in the same category, sure the price is high but........

its pretty obvious a lot of money went into the restoration of this game. I mean any game can rack up a ton of money quickly for a full blown restoration. thinking Xenon HH Black Hole CPR parts nos parts etc.

I see SALE PENDING seems you found a ultimate GI fan. its a great looking game, not one you see a full blown restore on which makes it unique.

#82 1 year ago

Nice looking game but,

This is what pins ranked 315th go for? This game in its best condition is probably worth half of what you are asking. You NEVER get back what you put in. Maybe with HEP, but thats it. GLWS

I can't speak for the EM era, but Williams did stickers for drop targets on all their solid state machines that I'm aware of.

21 years ago u paid $3200 for a GI?

#85 1 year ago

Super nice work. Unless you created the thread option for the inevitable negative publicity, I recommend skipping the thread option next time. I also second the idea of listing it on Ebay to reach a different audience.

#86 1 year ago

Spelling police: "wasting" our time. Not "waisting."

Unless that's authentic spelling on the island.

#87 1 year ago

Wait a minute. Maybe we all misunderstood.
He could be asking for the amount in PESOS.

Gilligan approves

" Best game ever "

Bill if you need to sell some of your games to buy this GI I can come over and help you out

#90 1 year ago

How many plays in the last 12 years? Asking for a friend....

#91 1 year ago
Quoted from Jjsmooth:

21 years ago u paid $3200 for a GI?

I think $320.00 is a more likely price for that pin 21 years ago . I think I recall passing on a decent one for $750 around that time.

I wish people wouldn't get so personal over pricing. I get ribbing someone, but some of the comments get pretty harsh ! I don't think the guy is seriously attempting to screw someone over ... he's just asking a retail price for a pristine machine.

WOW .....on a site that is supposed to be for the love and appreciation of a great hobby PINBALL, where everyones favorite game is different, whats important in a machine is different for everyone, what value someone has for a machine is different, there is so much negativity , bitterness, and hate on this site, not even sure I want to be a part of anymore.

#94 1 year ago
Quoted from Jjsmooth:21 years ago u paid $3200 for a GI?

and no I did not buy this machine 21 years ago. 21 years ago I purchased my first machine a Gilligan, long gone any many GI since then I bought this machine a year ago and restored it , If thats ok by you ?

#95 1 year ago

You paid $100 for a fucking shooter rod?!

#96 1 year ago
Quoted from Dave_rautio:

Come here and and ask way too much for the game, what did you think would happen. Don't get pissed if people call you out on it.

Have you seen modded plungers.? They are not cheap.

#99 1 year ago

Look at this for contrast.. This even seems expensive and there is so much more work here.
