Assume condition is 8+ on all games.

Circus (working)
Star Race (Working)
Counterforce (nonworking)
Panthera (Nonworking)
Force 2 (Nonworking)

All games are complete, what would you pay for them?

Sadly system 80 machines just don't bring the kind of money they should in most cases. I don't agree with prices I am posting below - I think most System 80 machines are worth more than the market is willing to pay but realistic prices on these machines is something like this:

Circus - $600 to $750
Star Race - $800 to $1000
Counterforce - $200 to $300
Panthera - $200 to $300
Force 2 - $250 to $350

As a lot maybe $2000 if you are the buyer or want to sell quickly up to about $2500 if you are not in a rush to sell.

Thanks for the opiniom. Im looking to buy them and you came up with the same numbers I did. Im just curious if anyone else has thoughts

As long as you don't mind doing a little work to get them stable System 80 machines are good machines and a great bang for the buck. If I was putting an offer on the lot I would be around $1500 to $2000 depending on condition issues and how bad I wanted them. Circus is a nice looking machine that seems way under priced. Panthera is OK but that always seems to sell under $650 even when working 100%. I don't have any personal experience with the other 3 but I know all system 80 machines tend to sell fairly cheap (even Black Hole & Haunted House don't bring what they should in today's market).

I have to agree, a pretty fair assessment of prices down the line. I think depending on it's condition, the gem in the lot will be Counterforce.
