I’ve got a nice Shadow for sale in the marketplace. $3500 with a ton of mods if anyone is interested.

#102 1 year ago
Quoted from jgentry:

In your mind or in the market? A really nice clean one with minimal sanctum wear would sell for 4k no problem. We're are these 2.5k and 1.5k TS at? If you are right then I shouldnt have an issue finding one. Or are you talking about a beater that needs work and a full shop out? Because that's the only way one is going that low.

Not true. 4K no problem? There have been plenty in the lower $3K range. Why Price pump? This notion that TS is somehow a sure shot $4K game is simply erroneous.

If I told you BSD was a $4K would you agree? Those two games have been priced neck and neck for a long time.

That one is a solid deal with not a lot of sanctum wear. It's also in NY nearing winter and not offering shipping. Cab is ok condition. This time of year with a lot of new releases is a great time to find a good deal. Take the same game, redo the cab and it wouldn't have much trouble selling in the low 4's.
That is also the only TS listed that is a good deal.

Stop. Low 4s... that's simply ridiculous to say. Case and point. There's a guy three posts up that has a loaded, asking $3.5.

That's the same game we we're talking about in the post you quoted. If my 4k is rediculous then why did this game sell for $3900 with some mods removed? Please explain that and stop posting nonsense. The market is what it is. You can claim 2500, then 1500, and now 3000 all you want. But were are they?

I sold a pretty nice one for $3100 around a month ago. Better sanctum area than this one.

Pinball prices are somewhat regional, of course. On the other hand, I think the market overall has cooled off even since then.

But I thought they sold for 1500-2500?

Zmeny sold his with mods removed for 3900

Nice shadow is 3500-4000. A extremely nice one is going to be 4000+ all day long and a restored one is going to jump even higher. Like I said wait until the CPR playfields are released and see what happens.

I would ship it if buyer sets it up. Although prefer local pickup.

Of course I was being sarcastic about $1500... but look above. $3100 for a nice TS. $4000+ all day is an owner’s dream. I guess my Johnny is $4k too now?

Here’s 4 games from the last few months... all below your 3500-4000+ inflated price. Remember... these are Pinside asking prices!

I guess you do not see the irony of you posting this over and over in a thread of a TS that just sold for $3900? You can grab all of the low prices from the archives that you want and waste your life doing it. Doesn't change what a really nice modded TS is going sell for. Even with you cherry picking nothing but the lowest prices you still couldn't find a single for for $2500 like you stated they sell for. Pretty sure I can go through the archives and find plenty in the range that I said really nice modded ones go for.

Better question is why do you even care? They cost what they cost? Isn't it a little strange to be in a thread that just sold a TS for a price that you claim is pretty much unheard of and not possible arguing a point that this thread proves is no longer correct?

Because you literally asked: I quote “were are they,” which I assumed meant “where are they.” You also said that a few years ago shadows were going for 3.2-3.5... And I just showed you four games below, at, or a hundred or so above $3k. And you have to assume they were all OBO. Not cherry picking, I just opened up the forum history and those were on the first page.

So $2500 maybe have been a off by $500. Yes, that’s true. But you can find this game for a grand less than the $4k+ line that you’re claiming exists. Forget mods... mods are irrelevant, unless you’re talking Color DMD, but even that has little to do with the actual value of the game.

You’re right in asking why I care... but I’d ask you the same thing. Truthfully, if the OP was closer, I very well might have talked to him about buying his game. Was beautiful and somebody is really going to enjoy it. If I were selling his game, I totally would have tested the market the way he approached it. Hats off to him.

#111 1 year ago

Now now kids....
I just had one resorted a bundle on it.

Added 22 months ago: Spent a bundle on the restoration.

#112 1 year ago

Overall nice condition shadows with color dmd, alt translight and few other things usually sell around 3250-3500 from my experience. Pinside is always higher on most stuff.

We will just have to agree to disagree on this one

Don't understand why you would talk to the OP and over pay by 1k based on your own opinion or why you would also list this game like the OP did if it's really worth 1k less? TS is a good game and this one is sold so who cares. We can both walk away and probably both be wrong lol. I think your low, you think I'm crazy high, truth is usually somewhere in-between.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

If anyone is interested I have a 10lb turkey for sale modded out with Pin Stadium Lights, Color dmd platter, and dressing mods. Clean, routed turkeys go for about $50 but with these mods I could let it go for $75. Turkey mods add to the price everyone knows that!

#115 1 year ago

FWIW, I think the buyer got an awesome looking game and the seller got a price he was happy with. Congrats to both parties and happy Thanksgiving!

#116 1 year ago

I gotta say that I'm surprised that Zach would let such an outstanding game go. The buyer is obviously a very savvy pinball aficionado!

And the fact that I'm thankful that I just added a TS to my collection is merely coincidental. Sort of.

Happy Thanksgiving to all owners and fans of The Shadow!

Hilarious comment with the turkey Zach.

Back on topic, there is nothing Pinball savvy about paying that price for a shadow like this. But that's what makes pinside great. Why not try.

If Stern made a game with exactly the same layout and mechs as TS today what would they charge?

and prob paid too much for each although you have good taste. I've also owned the majority of those already. Going round 2!

hey - spend whatever you want but comparing a stern price model to B/W? cmon now man....I'm out of this thread though. Spending too much time talking reality and trying to help people stop overspending. GL.

Wait a sec... so you are actively looking for a shadow...

Now it all makes sense.

3.5k shipped from Arizona with color dmd, topper, mirror blades, and a nice PF isn’t too bad for TS IMO.

Stern’s Premium / LE pricing at this point is only sustainable because people aren’t afraid of losing their ass when they go to resell. It certainly doesn’t seem to be due to build quality and BOM.

If Stern made a TS today and charged their current premium price people would be creaming themselves at the perceived “value” vs recent releases. So getting that game at 3.9k, while at the high end of the current TS market, is still not a bad buy imo.

#125 1 year ago

"3.5k shipped from Arizona with color dmd, topper, mirror blades, and a nice PF isn’t too bad for TS IMO."

You've done well. Now that is more inline with expectations so good job. Now, PM me and let's make a deal and I'll buy all 3! ; )

haha - pinballnewb you have good taste and I think you get my point.

It’s going no where soon or ever, but if that time comes and you’re still looking you’ll be the first to know!

Just commenting on the market - no hard feelings. It's a nice shadow and no doubt buyer will enjoy.

Now - get that Alien!
