Quoted from whthrs166:

When it comes to the Philosophy of "your cup being half full or half empty" I am in the "Half Full" group. I believe you make your own fortune. I truly love the fact that I get to live in a country that is the land of opportunity! There are lots of opportunities out there it is up to you to take advantage of them. I also believe that something is only worth what someone is willing pay for it. (Let the Buyer Beware) If you can get $500 for a paper clip, you should. And the US is the place to do just that. Aim High! Maybe this guy is a Snake Oil Salesman. Maybe he is an opportunist. Maybe he is victim. You just don't know. And your probably aren't going to know. I have learned a lot about Pinside people from this thread. Thanks Pinside.

Well said

#552 79 days ago

Yeah it can be the land of opportunity or the land of a good Efffing, it works both ways.

Proto had so few differences compared with production models, mostly third magnet which doesn't change game play. Other things are just cosmetic. It doesn't have the proto clock (multicolor) so it appears to have been tinkered with. Add the amount of wear and I just don't see (Me personally) much extra value. Not sure many people find it different enough to warrant much more than $1-2k extra. I could be very wrong.

Give me a very nice production model without extra holes and plays the way they intended for 1/9 the price all day long.

Quoted from AFM95:

wantdataeast - we have missed your presence. Did you sell your Baywatch?

No, I still have have her. Beyond a few test games she remains unplayed (.... so now about 605 plays in the past 12 years. )

There was a service bulletin for a few Sega / DE games
https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts-blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/sb106.pdf

There was a harness issue on older 192x64 DMD displays can experience reset - blankout display issues
(Maverick, Batman Forever, Frankenstein, Baywatch). And I have not even had a chance to open the back box to see it was updated or not.

Quoted from russdx:

I think peope don't like seeing other people in there community / hobby ripped off. Plus people hate greed and this price is 90% greed lol

Anyone with 65k to spend on a rare collector pinball is unlikely to be a sucker unaware of what they're getting into.....

My Twilight Zone is number 6,342. It is the only one that is 6,342, it is very unique, and I will let it go for only $25,000.

Quoted from fns9l:

Why is he being glorified on pinside if he was banned from here?

Some may glorify him (Kaneda) but he's just a narcissistic, spoiled rich kid. I'm not sure how many here actually glorify him.

Now if we could only get thehuemanatee to join the discussion.

I think we’re looking at this sale the complete wrong way.

Each pinsider should anti up $50 and we buy this damn machine for 65 grand , then we quietly sell it for it it’s actual value and use that money to hire a publicist to get the story of the Uber rare machine someone realized was so valuable into mainstream media!

Boom - the value of all our machines goes up as suckers flock to buy our “rare” games anticipating huge returns.

Then the bottom falls out of the market after we float another story of how everyone gut duped and we buy the machines back for pennies on the dollar.

Win - win - win

It actually bumps his post to the top, so essentially I’m helping him keep his for sale ad relevant. The memes and gifs are just for entertaining others, not meant to be disrespectful.

Sale Pending...... Keep your fingers crossed!

Quoted from wrb1977:

@gryszzz, misfit, or shall I call you the crimson ghost? You are a 45 year old grown man. Leave your teenage angst and high school behind...you will be a much happier person. There is no need for calling the op names. You don’t even know the man and yet you’ve delivered such pointed words and hate towards him. He has remained unbelievably professional and calm...hats off to him...impressive! Regardless of whether or not you agree with his asking price, he has the right to ask for any amount he wants. Be constructive with your comments...it will go a long way. Looking for attention and to just get a rise out of people is no way to live. Also, try communicating without cussing, if you are able. By the way...I’m quite happy here in Pittsburgh...it’s a wonderful city and has a VERY strong presence in the international pinball community. I’m sure you will be responding with some more f-bombs and personal attacks...it’s all good...feel free...you are insignificant to me and my life. As I’m sure anyone can see, I don’t post much but do when I feel the need to. I just don’t like seeing a new Pinsider get treated the way you have treated him...it does absolutely no good for the pinball community...this is why I spoke up.

So if a TZ in excellent condition came on the market with an asking price of 2k how many of you would jump at it?

What's that got to do with the price of tea in China?

Quoted from gold1:

literally makes no sense, of course every one here would buy it because its below the market value, not x10 its value (ie complete rip off)

None. People on here don't pay double price for something................let alone 10x price.
