Quoted from Collin:

It is what it is; I've got no vested interest in this sale. I just think it's a simultaneously amusing and sad commentary on the pinball market that someone's asking $3900 for a BSD.

You've said it yourself that you have no interest in this sale so why comment than?

My ACDC Prem sold so this BSD is no longer for sale.

It definitely looks like a keeper. Kinda scary when your hand is forced by economics sometimes. Glad you were able to hang on to it.

I can't imagine you'll regret hanging on to it. Enjoy!

Quoted from Collin:

Let's analyze this.
Base game - $2400 (being generous)
Clearcoat - $100
Chrome rails and lockdown bar $100?
Full non-ghosting LEDs and LEDs in GI and Flashers $200
Pinbits Plastic Protectors $25
Cliffy on shooter lane and Rat hole with Colored Cliffy Posts $25
White rubber with Purple Superbands (Not really an add-on; a pinball should have new rubber when being shopped.)
Pinball Pro Sub and Backbox kit $200?
Includes Prototype Slings not installed
$3900 obo Lowballs will be ignored.
....dude is asking $3900. It looks to me like there's about $3000 worth of game there at best... but everyone knows you don't get your money back out of mods.

So clear coated playfield would go for $800-$1000. And then it needs to be installed. I can do it myself in about 40 hours or I can pay the local restorer about $1000 to do the labor. I make more than $1000 in 40 hours of work so I'd be better off paying the local restorer. This is $2000 over the "base". Let's say the base is $1500. Chrome playing is going to be about $300. The $2000 for playfield installed. Cabinet in that condition. Again I can sand down a cabinet and redecal it assuming I can even buy decals. My local artist charges me $150 to paint unfade a cabinet. So let's go with that. A clear coated pf and cabinet of that quality. If I wanted a game in that condition, I'd be into it about $4k.

Some of us don't collect a bunch of junk. There's more to each game than the title.

The BSD would have sold if you just used your pinball models.
