I was poking around the top 100 (and archive), and it appears that TRON LE is the highest cost pin - that I could find. I find that rather amazing - good machine yes, but is it the most desired? I know it is a supply and demand thing, but just interesting.

Edit: Ops, I overlooked MM , so I guess that's the reason for the MMr

Kingpin crushes the value of Tron LE, many times over. Heck, BBB is still way ahead.

LOL no. Kingpin, Krull, BBB, Loch Ness, just to name a few.

Ah, it has unknown - that is what threw me off. I am sure you are probably right on BBB (and others)

Michael Jackson if it sells is my guess

I would say a 1951 Gottlieb Mermaid is one of the if not the top value pin ever sold.
I believe the last one sold at auction for somewhere north of $30,000 .

We have this title at the club and it is a fun old woody , and the colours and art are cool and the game play is faster than most woodys.

Pinball circus would be a good bet as well.

I recently saw a NIB BBB selling for $35K.

What do you think an original Pinball circus would sell for if it ever came up?
I bet more than any of those. Even if it isn't the greatest player.

Rarity doesent equal good, but for the most part it equals $$ and bragging rights.

IMHO, I have played BBB a bunch of times and its only a $5000 game max. At least thays all I would ever pay.
Its highly over rated. Those that got in on it initially paid what its worth. But now
Its not that good, it looks nice. But the gameplay isn't there. And gets old

I personally hate Tron. So I feel its worth what the initial MSRP is.
Even MM is overpriced.
But so is the MMr. Its a $6000 game in my books as well.

I dont think any game should ever be worth more than its initial purchase price.
And I can't see myself ever paying inflated prices.

People with money will pay more for what they think they want/need.

I feel no used pin is worth more than the current. Market NIB pro price is.
Because at high prices I might as well buy new, for less.

Thats why I said original.
I bet the remake will be around woz/hobbit price. If it comes out.
