Quoted from shacklersrevenge:
I don't think it's really ''rare'' I have seen a few around my area from time to time,
it's one of those games where if you're not looking for it, it comes to you, and the other way around if you're looking for it.
Monday Night Football I would say is harder to get. Torpedo Alley is another.
Out of 1500, I would say 1000-1100 have survived if lucky.
I'd say that's pretty optimistic...more like 750 or less? Like you said the DE games weren't really built to last. Took me forever (a couple years really) to find one locally that wasn't snapped up before I could buy it. I think thanks to the awesome theme and sounds, the simple but challenging and satisfying gameplay, and the various youtube videos pumping it up this one has gotten pretty popular quickly.
All Robocops I see have nice playfields - I think they were all mylared.
I just got one, expected shape cab ain't so hot, nice playfield. Love the movie and it's a very fun game I've always looked forward to playing at Papa/Pinburgh. I always get a tech to crank the sound so I can play Robocop LE (Loud Edition).
