I was wrong. I'll own it, learn from it, and move on.

    The seller comes off poorly in these e-mails, not the potential buyer. The potential buyer bends over backwards to try to be nice. The seller comes off like a condescending a-hole. The buyer clearly loses it at the end because of the way he was treated during the interactions.

    Quoted from mrgregb123:

    Obviously the OP didn't understand that this was a very nice copy. That's on him. But he's not totally wrong in that $10,500 is moronic IMO for a TAF in any condition - let alone one with a replacement playfield, which is what we've got here. I've got a TAF with a mint -original- playfield, all mint parts, a bulletproof clear coat, flawless interior, the whole nine, even an -original- speaker panel sanded and polished to NIB quality (no replacement stuff here)...it's indistinguishable from one you just opened in 1992, and I could send you 50 references who would concur this.
    But if I needed to sell it, and I have no plans to, I'd never ask for $10k...it just seems absurd. I get it guys, people with money will grossly overspend for the cachet. There are people who spend $2 million for a frickin' painting. From a living artist. I'll never get that either. But the point here is that ganging up on the guy for being way off on the condition is fine, but to beat him up claiming HEP machines are worth whatever someone is selling it for simply because....HEP....gimme a break.

    That’s exactly right. A nearly mint original survivor is more desirable than a restored Mr. Potato Head machine all day long. And you’d never get 10K for your nearly perfect original TAF.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Yeah the fourth time he reminded Norcal that "it's not even a Gold!" was the epitome of bending backwards to be nice, and the condecending "good luck with your sale" was just peachy. Top it off with coming here to stir up shit (who the f does that just because someone they don't know and likely will never speak to again doesn't accept their CL offer?!) and you've got a real sweetheart buyer.
    You guys must not sell very many games to think this is tolerable behavior.

    Yes, he lost it at the end because he was baited. Whenever I sell a machine, by the way, it goes very quickly. I always make sure I’m about the cheapest out there because when it’s time to move on, it’s time to move on. Always cracks me up about how deals on games that cost thousands can go south over $100. Pinheads are weirdos sometimes.
