Has anyone mentioned just how outrageous this price is? I mean, it's absolutely astounding. The OP should be absolutely ashamed of himself for insulting pinsiders this way. I'm speechless.

#854 31 days ago

Personally, I think he has a bet going:
to start a thread that will accumulate
1000 posts.

#855 31 days ago

I think it's an experiment in human mob mentality.

I was thinking about selling my restored TZ in the next few months.... Is this the thread that I need to benchmark for my price point?

#857 31 days ago

I’m not going to read through the entire thread, but I’m sure most will agree that this price is insane. 65k? Rotflmao!

#858 31 days ago

has any one asked if it's just typo? maybe its only 6.5k?

#859 30 days ago

I hear TZ is a great game I hope one day I can afford one.

If it's wrong to ridicule a game priced FIFTY THOUSAND dollars too high, then I don't want to be right.

#866 30 days ago

I’m not going to read through the 8 posts that just came after my last one (9 posts ago), but has anyone determined if this is a joke or not?

The seller is serious.
And it is a joke.

Actually no.If you had taken the time to read past posts you would be up to speed.As previously posted if you cannot afford or want to buy this machine fine move on.I don't think people realise that just because there is freedom of speech,there is no freedom of character assassination.

Oh look, the white knights Are so valiantly riding in, clutching their pearls while defending the poorly treated seller.....pfft, give me a break.

The seller has listed a pin at an out of this galaxy price, and is getting the mockery he deserves. When I have been new in different hobbies, I’ve always appreciated “price police”, because they inform some of the uninformed if an item is priced too high. In the same regard, if there is price complaints but it’s priced fairly, there is others who have come to defend sellers. Everything balances out in the end.

That’s not whats happening here. This is just silly and foolish, and the seller deserves absolutely every bit of criticism and more. He’s marked it up 5-6 times it’s normal value, and has been untruthful in his statements of how long he has owned it. I’m glad he has been shamed, and I hope it continues. I’m sure the seller appreciates our glorious white knights coming to save the day, but it’s clear to myself and most others that it’s a fools task.

In the end our heroic knights are right, the seller can ask whatever price he wants, and in doing so, deserves absolutely every bit of criticism blasted at him. Just one mans opinion.

Your opinion is fine and everyone is a critic.So would you buy a pinball knowing the price was half its true value?Just a question.yours the white knight.

Everyone, including you, is looking for a good deal. Bad deals are different. If you want to be a white night, you should warn others that this guy is trying to rip somebody off. Get out your megaphone.

Good deals/bad deals depends which side you are on I guess.You see buying a machine for half its true value as a good deal .But this seller is a bad deal guy because he is asking a higher price than the market?Think you are both on the same side of the fence.

I enjoy your selective logic. "Half it's true value" is a good deal, yet "higher price" equates to a bad deal guy. I'll help you out here.

The unmanipulated argument is as follows: half of market value is a deal almost everyone would go for. The seller is either ignorant or desperate, each of which deserves sympathy, but again, most would exploit the situation to some degree. Selling an item for 6-8 times market value (not just "higher") to a well-informed sector of the market will naturally be met with outrage. This will happen in 100% of similar situations, hence my confusion at your incessant attempts at refuting. Lastly, if you want to equate, you must use equal measures. Imagine if the guy was selling this for 1/6 of market price? Most of us, hopefully you too, would be critical of the sale, telling him he is giving it away, and we would be justified in doing so.

So with the use of sound logic, you are correct: it goes both ways.

My god, this thread is still going?

#881 28 days ago

I cant believe this forum has so many posts. It has to be some sort of record.

#882 28 days ago

What I am trying to determine is what is the logic of the OP’s ad? Is he trying to sell it and make a small fortune against what little he paid for it, or is he trying to make up for the initial mistake of purchasing it not knowing its true value, having accepted the price the original owner quoted him, which was astronomical, and now, in order to recoup his outlay, he has to post this train wreck of an ad in attempt to make himself whole again... because that is the ONLY scenario that makes sense here. I mean, I get it, it is more rare than your average run of the mill TZ, but approaching a 10X multiplier on the reasonable value of a fairly nice TZ is in no way justifiable unless you can find that one buyer who would crawl trough a mile of broken glass, then swim through a festering cesspool of shit and diarrhea just to sniff the tire tracks of the garbage truck that hauled away the ziplock baggy that once held Pat Lawlors dirty undies...

what? did you think it would be sold already? I DONT THINK SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#884 28 days ago

This guy joined pinside about the same time o-din left. I think o-din left because of a dispute about a ad that he posted in the marketplace.

Could this be the ghost of o-din playing one of his pranks? Hmm.......

#885 28 days ago

There are so many ejections in this thread it's beginning to resemble a baseball game!
