I need your knowledge Guys, what is the min-max value for a Data East Simpsons pinball?
I have some pics, they are not in high definition but it gives an idea. The guy ask $750, i think it is a good deal. Am i right?

That is most certainly a good deal. And it even has the topper included!

Do the basics work? Does it start up, good display, can play a game? Hmm, on second though, I would buy it anyway. It's really a nice price.

Thanks Robin and Icehill.

Nice deal!

I have this game and I really like it. It's probably my favorite Data East game from the pre-DMD era. The theme is strong, the voice calls are excellent (all original actors), and there are some fun shots to hit. Even after all these years of owning this machine (going on 17 years now), I still get excited about starting 3-ball multiball and hitting those Millions loops.

Buy it - if it starts up and plays - thats a good deal!!

sounds like a good deal can play like 5-8 games on it first?

There was one here for $1150 I wanted but didn't have the space for it. As soon as I sold my Future Spa I looked and the Simpsons was sold too. DOH!
That looks to be worth at least $1000 and more if that Playfield is in real good condition.

Hello all,

I do not mean to hijack a thread, but I have a follow-up question. There were a few DE Simpsons that have come through my area and I have debated trying to get one. However, one question I had was the playfield layout. Looking at it the design reminds me a lot of DE Back to the Future. Has anyone played both and, if so, do the games play in a similar manner?

I have to drive 4 hours to see it, even it does'nt work perfectly i'm going to buy it.
I emailed the seller and ask to pick it up tomorrow, i'm waiting his answer. I don't have his phone number for now.

There were quite a few DE designs that were very similar around that time. TMNT is another one that is a lot like this. Of all of them, I consider The Simpsons to be the best player, however.

Hello Jar,

Thank you! it looked similar yet with not having a chance to play one, and only have YouTube to watch (which can be very helpful though), I was not sure.

Thanks again!
