9K for a playboy? I don't care what you did to it, this is absurd.

Quoted from pinballdude1:

Over $4500 in parts and labor!

So the starting pin was also $4500? Ain't no one paying $9K for this.

#7 7 months ago

OK, it's pretty........but it's still a Playboy....

And yes, bigger pics please, if for no other reason than to see a really nice looking Playboy - a lot of time and effort went into that, congrats.

Can we get hi-res pictures of this game to see the quality of work that was done?

#9 5 months ago

That's a lot for a game that can be done nicely for $1K's less. weatherbymag and myself did one nearly as nice for way less.

No such thing as “triple chrome plated” regardless of what the guy at the rim shop told you

Maybe it's personal preference but I prefer NO chrome on that part of the pinball. Touch it once and it looks like it needs cleaning.

This guys always trying to petal BS prices on games. He may see success in his shop, but not on a site like PinSide where most of the buyers are very well educated on game pricing...the game looks nice, but he's smoking crack if he thinks someone on this site is going to pay him $7K for this game. $4500 dollars in parks and labor? hmmm

Triple chrome plating is copper, nickle, chrome. It implies that the copper layer was used to fill and polish.

At least that's how I was taught.

Not shit talking HEP here, but he's someone that has close ups of his parts which are just nickle plated. You can see the surface differences that would've been evened out with a copper layer underneath.

at the end of the day its still a $1200 game under all the bling. don't think there is over $5800 worth of bling.
