I wanted a Gottlieb Abra Ca Dabra, but this seems a bit too much

I was doing research on a Gottlieb Abra Ca Dabra for games and parts, and found this.

It seems to be a little too high for me, but perhaps someone out there might like it.

Just trying to help...

Gold plated score motor - just what I was looking for!

Looking more closely, The Circus Tiger would seem to be more rare:

IPDB has no numbers and very little information about this as a remake of "Tiger".

It's just called "Tiger" 1100 produced but distributed in Italy.

Well, at least the playfield art is different. The Italian Tiger is leaping "up" versus "down".

And I thought it was ridiculous that I've polished up a couple of score motors.

I've seen a few of these overpriced machines on 1stdibs - has anyone heard of someone actually buying one???

All of the pins on 1sdibs.com appear to originate from Saarbruecken, Germany. I wonder if the person who refurbished them is a Pinsider.

They have a $30k Majorettes with a circular contraption mounted in the rear of the cabinet. What is that?

Majorettes

That is a toroidal transformer.

Or You could buy the Majorettes directly from the shop, Pinball Dreams, for 15,000€

Probably a step down transformer for 110v Majorettes......
The 60hz score motor runs slower in Europe.......

#12 2 years ago

Ridiculous! Why stop at 30K? Go for 50K.

#13 2 years ago

i saw a recent video on facebook for a williams game skill pool by pinball dreams , sure looked nice but claiming there were 270 hours put into it .

#14 2 years ago

The oddball prices must in part be due to conversion from Euros to USDollars
but only Donald Trump or Jeff Bezo or Richard Branson would be foolish enough to spend
that kind of money on a restored pinball machine.

#15 2 years ago

To me something surreal & unreal about that machine. It has been re-created in a way that was never meant to be-at least from the point of view of a 'practical originalist'.

#16 2 years ago

give me a players quality game to enjoy. that's just ridiculous money

#17 2 years ago

makes pinrescue look like a bargain

#18 2 years ago

These guys make the guy in Palm Desert CA who wants $4500 for a damned Domino look reasonable.
