Clean game but missing the boards. Cabinet little to no fade, some bumps here and there. Topper, playfield in really good condition, all around nice game.

Selling as is without boards for 1500obo.

If it doesn't sell I'll probably throw some new rottendogs and a pinsound in it to really make it great.

So you're the lucky one who snagged this off of CL in Cinci! Color me jealous

#3 3 years ago

Yeah I was told it's just missing the "motherboard"...... hahaha

#4 3 years ago

Missing every single board in backbox?

What was the asking price on Craigslist?

#6 3 years ago

Well you're only a 100 dollars off.

#7 3 years ago

The boardset's $1400 folks!

#8 3 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Around 1k minimum if its missing every one....

#9 3 years ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Around 1k at the lowest if its missing every one....

It's around $1100 at full retail price, plus shipping.

If you collect and repair boards, you could probably squeak by at around half that--more or less.

True but even buying used original boards will cost you around 750-800 in most cases. Cld definitely be a good buy for someone that has the boards ....

That depends if they were working or non-working when you got them.

If only I were closer...

#12 3 years ago

I priced all new rottendogs with roms and a pinsound for 1200 shipped not too shabby but still a lot of moolah. I figured either someone with extra boards would get a good buy or someone will get a jd with all new boards and a pinsound for 2700 not bad at all.

#13 3 years ago

I have to wonder if a whole set of rottendogs would actually work. I'm sure somebody's tried it.

#14 3 years ago

Not a bad deal, wish I had the spare cash or something to trade.

#15 3 years ago

I'm just waiting for the phrase that what's his name always says. It's coming don't worry.

#16 3 years ago

I'm trying to think of a lessor game to rob a set of boards out of. Too bad whitestar don't work.

#17 3 years ago

So............with all new boards........ the game is functioning 100%, correct? How is anything else known about potential issues with the rest of the game?

This is true but the most difficult board to get is the sound board. These seem to go for $175+ working or not.

just wanted to say it is a shame this was not priced at 1400 just for the history and effect

Quoted from Seatmandan:

Very true. All I can go on is that the story seemed to check out that guy pulled them for another game, he was said to own several high end pins like tz, cv, etc. also I see no hacks pretty clean which suggests it's good. Just a bunch of unlabeled connectors in the back box Previous owner said it worked fantastic prior to pulling boards "not even a ball ever got hung up". Pics of playfield are without even cleaning it (usually do a nice shop and wax job but honestly didn't really need it).

They do pop up every once in a while, unlike the WPC95 AV board. But, a pinsound board is an alternative if you don't want to wait.

#24 3 years ago

Any way to test if the Deadworld motor works? I was thinking of swapping boards from my IJ (plus getting the correct roms) and ending up with a more efficiently running IJ with Pinsound on that. Not as excited for a Pinsound JD, but thinking of other ways such an expense would be worthwhile in this case.

Unplug any boards connected to the motor, and use an external power supply to connect 12v to the motor. It might not go at the correct speed, but it will get it moving, at least.

#26 3 years ago

I was told everything is operational and in good condition, but again those are only words. Really have been tempted to through all new boards in it because it looks good and doesn't seem altered.

#27 3 years ago

Wish I was closer. This would be great for a P-ROC project!

Probably your best bet. Put boards in it and it'll sell for the going rate if it works.

#29 3 years ago
Quoted from TxJay:

It was really low. I want to say 4-600

#30 3 years ago

Damn I paid $1500 for mine last year that had boards, prices sure have gone up around here.

#31 3 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

The owner had it listed too low you are correct. Total transparency I offered 1000 dollars knowing it was worth more and trying to do the right thing. However I only thought the CPU was gone and was very surprised when I made the drive there that in fact all boards were gone.

#32 3 years ago

I've stuck a couple hundred more into ever project pin I've ever bought than I thought I would. Just my 2 cents

Damn I'm having a hard time finding any thing other than a shaq attack for 1500!!!! People wont even sell me a LW3 for 1500!!!! True story!!!!

Tommy is always hustlin. JD has not been a 1500 game in fully working condition for years.

Pinside estimate of 2300-2600 is actually pretty spot on (possibly even low). I sold a JD last year for over 2k and had 5 buyers in a day (cant remember the exact price as I only sold it quick cause I found a nicer one to upgrade to).

Here's the million dollar question: if you did indeed pay $1000 (tops as this is what you claim to have offered the seller, and I don't know the price you paid, so I'll assume you paid what you offered), what makes this game worth your asking price now?

Sounds like he offered 1,000 when he thought most boards were there. I imagine he paid the asking price of 4-600 when he realized what it was.

Got to love someone that buys a game with the sole purpose of a quick flip!

What is "The Free Market" for $500, Alex?

#41 3 years ago

So lemme get this straight?

OP bought a game that he never saw work. Does a price check, realizes its too expensive for what it is, then posts it up to hopefully make a quick profit?

Even going by op's math 1200 in boards + 1500 game = 2700. That gets you a completely untested machine with a second hand story. How many of us have bought a game that the seller described as "works perfectly" and found a basket case?

If the estimate is 2300-2600 for a jd, then who wants to be in for 2700 and a boat load of unknowns?

#42 3 years ago

Guys I'm trying to sell it for a fair price given the condition and the unknowns. Does the price of purchase affect the price of sale? Not sure Stern uses the same ratio haha. Lot of interest so far thanks for the replies. Who's gonna pull the trigger?

The cheapest route I found would be to go with a P-Roc and a Windows PC (most of us probably have a spare or could find one for not too much money) and run it through PinMame. Much cheaper, but I've never used it and support for a game specific issue is kinda sparse from what I can find since most people use PinMame for virtual cabinets or use P-Roc for some one off project--not jump-starting an actual pinball machine like this. All of that comes back to the assumption that the parts all work.

In my case, I'd be interested if I could find a Demolition Man on Steroids kit (and move my tested/working DM boards to this Dredd) or if I wanted to do the IJ setup I mentioned a few posts earlier. It's an ok project and I'd be ok with giving a nominal profit to him for hauling it...but triple money for it is too much for me.

I take it you're not interested? I think 2700 for a nice dredd with all new boards and a pinsound is a good deal, but hey I buy games without knowing if they work so maybe I'm the ignorant one.

It's not a bad deal, but it's up to you to do that leg work and take the $500 profit after you get it up and working. It's nice to offer it up before doing that to see if anyone is itching for a project, but it'd be easier trade bait if it were up and working rather than untested.

I saw a Shrek in fantastic condition on CL last week and bought it for 2900...not because I want a shrek, but I will shop it, enjoy it briefly and move it on for a profit.
You wouldn't?

You're supposed to launder your flips better--make it hard for Pinside sleuths to detect how you acquired it. Just say you bought it from a neighbor. Gotta have that untraceable alibi or else everyone will just offer exactly what was paid for it. It's especially true if a bunch of people saw the ad and tried to respond to it.

I honestly don't care if someone knows what I paid or where I got it, either we work out a deal or we don't.

Haha Yeah I'm just not that guy. I don't mind doing some work making a drive and making a little cash, but lying is not my thing. I like this pissy dramatic community too much hahaha
