Thanks for the input guys, I have a roadshow, getaway, jungle lord, black knight. I just sold a fire which I did not like I really want a Fun House..

Second on the Fish Tales or even a good Whirlwind.

#14 4 years ago

Taxi, EBD, Seawitch, Last Action Hero or Judge Dredd are good titles that are reasonably priced.

#19 4 years ago

2500 will get a good Doctor Who or Whirlwind...I think a 2500 Fish Tails might be sketchy

3000-3400 for a solid FH

#20 4 years ago

Just brought home Dirty Harry for $2500. . . probably have 30+ plays on it already and really liking it.

Not sure how far you want to travel, but here is a T2 and Earthshaker at $2500, $2000 respectively.

Id think about chasing after one myself if I hadn't just brought Harry home. . . the itch for a new pin was recently scratched. . . but it never seems to completely go away. . .

#24 4 years ago

road show, fish tales, nascar, the shadow (maybe a few hundred more for ts)

#25 4 years ago

I agree with Dirty Harry and WCS for the win right now. A decent BSD with fade just sold on Pinside for 2600 but I usually see them higher.

#28 4 years ago

BSD is by far the best in the class.

#29 4 years ago

WCS94 for sure

i agree with both of these, but are they really $2500 games? WCS would be my overall choice if found at that price.

I'd happily sell my wcs for more than 2500 lol

I just turned down a mint WCS for $2400, out of room, what a shame. Not sure what condition Whirlwind you can get for $2500, they are usually more expensive. With a bit of luck you can get a nice Judge Dredd, which I think is the best in that $2500 category.

Bought my WCS for $2500 in great condition with a clearcoated playfield and LEDs, and I bought it last month so that price is reasonably doable now.

#34 4 years ago

I have a chance to get an Earth Shaker for $2200, needs cleaning, LED's, rubbers. but all works. What do you think? Im trying for $2000

Es is fun, but you can do better

#36 4 years ago

Better as in game wise or pirce?

#37 4 years ago

Earthshaker is fun but I'd hold out for a Whirlwind for a little bit more in that category. I think it's twice the game Earthshaker is.

#38 4 years ago

I have a buddy selling a Phatom of the opera for $1700, but I appreciate all the input and probably hold off for a whirlwing

#39 4 years ago

Depending on your taste of theme I never get tired of South Park.

I own both and couldn't agree more.
Whirlwind is one of my favorite games.

Thank you guys, I apprecitae it, I guess I now need to look for a Whirlwind

You should be open to what is available in your price range, it can take a lot of time if you just set your sights on one pin. Almost everything in the top 100, even 200 are good fun pins and many come up in your price range

This is some of the best advice you can get ever.

I got nearly my entire collection by not using any wanted ads, only ever made one I think. Keep a big wishlist (open mind) in your head and jump on games when the prices are right or better. They come cheaper if you're not prying them out of somebody's collection too. When people are ready to sell the prices will be a lot cheaper.

Just picked up a really nice BSD for $2600 that was on the market for a while. Incredible pin for the price.

Yeah that one was a killer deal. You should be happy. I play BSD every night hunting for the "30 MILLION".

Don't discount Earthshaker just because Whirlwind is better. I traded my Earthshaker for a Whirlwind and always regretted it. You never know what you will like until you play it. $2200 does seem a little high, but I think I've seen that one for sale it looks pretty nice.

add another vote for HS2 and WCS. I think they are both great pins for the price. Both definitely in that sweet spot of fairly modern DMD pins that can found at reasonable prices. I have those two in my collection and they're not leaving anytime soon as I don't think I can get enough for them to justify it. I'd actually love to find another similar type of pin in the $2500 range to add to it. Most of the titles mentioned in here would be great.

#48 4 years ago

Stars
Whirlwind
Eight Ball Deluxe

No doubt. If you see one of these for this price, jump on it.

Ive only seen 3k+ Roadshows. Where are you finding 2500 Roadshows? The one in Austin is 2800 but still, not 2500??? Would love one in my collection.
