    Hello all. Not playing much and have a guy that recently bought my WOZECLE asking if I’d let go of my MM. it was restored by Dan at pinball barn and hardly played since. It has upgraded sound, pdi glass, will include full premium cointaker leds and a color dmd, and has brass rails, lockdown, and legs. Here are some pics. I know the remake killed the value and I’ll just keep it if the consensus value is way off from what I have into it. Thanks.

    Is the cab original or new decals?
    If new decals clear coated over top?

    Is the playfeild original or repo, if original was it touched up and clear coated?

    I think atleast 10k. Maybe more. The remake didn't kill the nice originals MM as much as they killed the original AFMs and MBs. The big display is killer in the new AFM and MB but that didn't happen for MM so as fas as I'm concerned I would rather have an original MM with a color DMD then a MM remake with color. Theres just not enough good stuff in the MM remake to make me want one over an original.

    There's no security hardware around the coin door, so most likely decals. Guessing it will certainly be off from what you have into it, a mint HEP MM recently sold for $11,500 couple months ago.

    If I had the space I'd personally be in at $9500 if that helps. But I love brass trim and put value on that, might be a turn off for some purists who appreciate originals. I'd take an original over remake of MM any day since there are not that many upgrades in the remake.

    Hard to assign value when there are several photos of the brass trim and zero of a well-lit playfield. Take the glass out, put some bright lights in the room. Get direct overhead shots of the playfield in good light. Take head-on perpendicular shots of all cabinet sides, not at an angle from across a dark room. Open the head and take a well-lit photo of the boards. Lift the playfield and take a photo of the cabinet interior. Et cetera, etc.

    Or just keep it and play it! Almost certainly not going to sell for what you have in it.

    Any time someone displays glass-on photos in a for sale ad, it always looks like he's trying to hide something.

    If it's a decalled cab, I'd guess you will get $8,500 for it (assuming everything else is perfect).

    Photos needed:

    Playfield around Merlin, scroll, top Right arrow.

    Floor of cab, especially the front corners.

    Circuit boards with close up of repairs and battery area of the mpu

    I love the brass look....PDI and Color DMD add $700 to the game....my guess is you'll get around $9K for it?

    #8 1 year ago

    I have seen and played this game and it is very nice, the OP is not hiding anything, just does not have the best camera skills

    #9 1 year ago

    Thanks guys. I will try to get better pics. Boards are perfect. Cabinet has decals. No clear on decals. The play field is original and restored by playfield renovations or restorations. It’s perfect. No wear. Hardly any plays. Those were the guys that took on too much work and disappeared with a bunch of pinsider’s playfields. Their work was the best at the time. They did probably do minor touch up and then clear. I do not have pics of playfield before they did the restoration. Cabinet interior perfect. It doesn’t have coin mechs.

    In that case I'd say $9k, unless someone loves brass, then maybe $9,500.

    My MM is restored with new decals original PF, original boards gold armor, Invisiglass, prosound, color DMD, shaker, LEDs, lots of other mods. I turned down $12,500 a couple of years ago. It really depends on the buyer and how patient you are to sell. If it's a really nice original game with the good mods and you are patient for the right buyer, you can still get $10k and up.
