Judge Dredd is a $1400 game

Glws

#3 10 months ago

re imports can be crazy like this...

#4 10 months ago
Quoted from timtim:

Glws

yea and this one is worth maybe $600

#5 10 months ago

Aside from being dirty and some smudges, the cabinet and head box look to be in remarkably good shape (just filthy).
Still plenty of reds left and hardly any marring from the legs.

#6 10 months ago

that poor thing

I thought it was just an $1,100 game. I must be getting old...

In the Covid world Judge Dredd is probably a $4,000 game.

Quoted from woody76:

Disagree. Id go 800 if op would ship via fastenal.

Parts come up but would add up to out this back together.

#10 10 months ago

Is it me or is the MPU missing? Just asking.

It is and so is the fliptronics board.

There is a lot more than the MPU missing. There are a lot of hard to find parts on JD and I'm guessing most have been stripped from this game. This may be the cost of a project game in this market. Curious to see if it sells. GLWTS.

I would think it’s more of a donor cabinet than a restoration.
The cabinet and playfield look good.
Somebody with a trashed cabinet, but complete game I would think would be the ideal buyer.

#14 10 months ago

I think I recall seeing this game pop up in the northeast or one in a very similar state. The price was tempting, and at the time I think *most* of the individual missing parts could be scrounged up, but availability always changes over time.

I think this is certainly a bit high for a game in this state, but with the crazy pin prices lately, who knows.

#15 10 months ago

I was super interested in this game and went through and priced out what it would take just to get it in functional condition so it will just flip - and unless you want a project for something fun to do, it’s definitely cheaper to just buy one outright. Good deal if you’re doing home brew

$800 is probably not bad, but there are lots of missing items. I would probably just rather buy a working one if I wanted a JD.

#19 10 months ago

I have a few spare JD parts including the plastic deadworld. If whoever grabs this still needs it, hit me up.

I like projects. This is the kind of thing I would buy, inventory what is missing, and keep an eye out. Would probably take a good long while before it lived again, but this would not be a donor game.

In terms of work vs cost? I can see why you would rather buy a working one. Even at minimum wage this doesn't make sense to fix. If you look at it as a hobby and the work is something you enjoy then you come out ahead of what it would cost to put back together.

#21 10 months ago

Great american pinball would have priced this at 4500

#22 10 months ago

Sound board gone: $300
MPU gone: $220 (no ASIC, CPU, ROM to transfer over)
Right Ramp: $160 (have to get shipped from pinball spare parts)

So, that's $550 off a quick eyeball. The crane is gone, missing light boards, flipper mechs wouldn't be hard to find, but another $100 in parts. Plastics for JD are impossible to find, probably $150 if you do. I'd estimate $1k-1200 in parts by the time it is all done, plus a year or two of waiting on some of it.

+DMD/DMD panel, right ball launcher, flipper optos, most of the wireforms.

If someone gets this come up to Chicago and I'll laser cut you a new Deadworld disc for cheap

#24 10 months ago

I'm like dung , I enjoy bringing back projects

But it's not for the impatient type, I just finished buying the last thing mech parts from marco, after 11months of waiting on availability, even then I got lucky

Point is when you get a project like this you have to know and be ok with constantly searching for what's missing and nearly impossible to find

With all that's missing here it's 4-600 imo

This is the top/down approach. If I have to spend $3000 in order to reach a fully working JD with a market value of $3600, it doesn't mean the project pin worth only $600. It means, above $3000 spending the project is not profitable. But there are precious parts, like transformer, power driver board, DCS sound board, metals in the cab, power box, coin door, playfield with a total value over $600. Would be good for a widebody project scratch build.

#26 10 months ago

When I saw the price I knew this game would be a horror show!

And it would sell no problem.

Let me be clear

I'm building a TZ from scratch, my donor cab is a JD cab (was just the cab not a whole pin) , I anticipate being under 4500 in that build, that is I guess a bottom up

Game specific parts nos are extremely hard to find and pricey, just in a pf , gumball mech, and clock mech(just got after 11mos ) I'm in 1500 alone,

My earlier opinion was based on restoring this example back to a working JD

Finding what's missing and rebuilding is a time consuming labor of love , I wouldn't take this on expecting to profit

I hear you, don't get me wrong. I purchased a project JD in 2019 with many missing specific parts, now it's ready for assembly.
This example is really a tough one.
