    Its dirty. Did get working. What a fun game. Would be cheap to reproduce possibly?

    #152 1 year ago

    I have an option to buy either a Taito Ice Cold Beer or an I.C.E Ice Cold Beer, both working 100% so what can I expect to pay for each?

    #155 1 year ago

    The Taito are in Germany around 2500 EURO , the ICE versions .. never saw one in Europe ....

    2K-3K for Nice in either, More for fully restored, or Minty.
    Ive now received offers from $3K cash to $4500 in trade on an Exceptional ICE.

    Why not buy both and aim for a discount if both are available from the same seller? You would easily sell the other.

    #158 1 year ago

    Because I can only fit one in the SUV but I guess I could make two trips! I am thinking I want the original as it is going to be for my brother and that is what he played back in the day. So if I were to do a deal on both, anyone interested in the I.C.E. one, let me know where you need to be on price and I’ll see what I can do

    hey all,

    new here. I posted to the I.c.e. troubleshooting thread, but it's pretty dead...

    was hoping someone could help me with my I.C.E. ice cold beer machine. got new belts, motors working great. all sensors come up green on start-up. can play 10+ rounds fine sometimes, no issue.

    other times, as soon as you touch the controls the game resets with the 'oooh' losing noise. this will continue happening until the next day after the game sits I try and seems to work OK.

    sensors are clean and working fine. trough switch is fine. I've tilted the machine forwards to play and backwards. same issues as above in both orientations.

    Thanks in advance guys. glad to be apart of the community.

    A guy on klov makes them. I bought a couple sets last year, not sure how often they break, but I didn't want to find out the hard way.

    #163 1 year ago

    Lets say it this way:
    My ICB came with the rubbers like .. spaghetti ... they break immediately after touching them ..
    The whole rest of the game is still the original stuff. After nearly 40 years my ICB runs like build yesterday. So the chance you will need this part: Zero .. but nice to have !!

    #164 1 year ago

    There's a guy on KLOV that will repro more ICB / Zeke's Peak cabinets if he can get enough interest. I have one of them already, but need another.

    I'm interested but would need a lead on decals for Zeke's peak.

    #166 1 year ago

    I would be intrested .. he should look for a partner in Europe selling this .. shipping would kill me ....

    If would be kinda cool if you could convert an ice cold beer to a zeke's peak.

    #169 1 year ago

    So who or where can I get a cabinet. I have a complete zeke’s peak playfield, ICB control panel, and ICB main board. So I could just about piece one together.

    #170 1 year ago

    Thanks teekee. Looks like the cabinet builder is not presently active but I will order the decals just in case.

    #172 1 year ago

    I just picked up a Taito ICB, the translucent red start button was broken. I got another one but it's too big for the original control panel. Does anyone know if smaller diameter buttons exist for this?

    Thanks in advance!

    #173 1 year ago

    Anybody else use the replacement motors from Marco Specialties? I installed one of them and there is a noticeable lag when starting or stopping that isn't present in the original motors. It completely throws the gameplay off.

    I would looooove to buy one of these. We're an arcade in Sandpoint, Idaho and looking to add one into Coeur d'Alene. This (and Zeke's Peak) would make an awesome addition! If you have one and are willing to sell, let me know! Ben

    Whats your price range?

    #176 1 year ago

    Anyone ever notice a led digit is faint. Can this be fixed or do I need a new scoreboard?

    #177 1 year ago
    Quoted from brainmegaphone:

    I'd guess it could only be a connection problem or the led is failing.
    I had a couple out segments.
    I bought a new board on ebay, when installing I noticed contacts were very worn, which is what caused my original not to work properly.
    At $50 an led board on a machine that's worth $2500+ I'd say it's a no brainer to buy the board and try it. At least you would have a spare in case the guy stops making them and that wasn't the issue.

    #178 1 year ago

    Looking to buy a Taito Ice Cold Beer or Zeke’s Peak.
    Also willing to trade a World Cup Soccer or nice arcade games.
    Located just outside of St. Louis. Let me know if you have any leads or any for sale. Projects or restored cabinets ok!

    Thanks. I saw that seller. Does anyone know if he is on pin side? His board photos have a logo for virtual pinball on the back...

    ICB on Ebay now....

    I don't see it, maybe it's gone already?

    I guess so...It was at $2850, with 3 days to go.

    I would not sell mine for this price ....

    #184 1 year ago

    It says unsold on Ebay!

    #186 1 year ago

    I'd sell mine for $4k.

    #187 1 year ago
    Quoted from gliebig:

    Me 2. I have the Taito version.

    #188 1 year ago

    Me 3.....Minty ICE version....

    #189 1 year ago

    Buy it Now appears to have been $4500 according to oldmans link to the ebay ad (click on link, then goto original listing).
    So we can probably assume the selling price was between $2850 and $4500 when it was ended early.

    If the paint job on my car this winter gets too pricey, icb is second on the chopping block this winter.

    #190 1 year ago

    Here you go $5K Now.....so If this sells are all the $4K now cheap? CrazY!

    This shows zero bids and it did not sell.

    Also I don’t think there’s any way that one sells for $5,000. There’s a very nice one of Facebook groups that has been for sale for a few days at 3500$ by Jason Kopp.

    Exidy’s guide is pretty spot on for most games and shows 1800-2500 collector price. I think 2500 is more realistic. KLOV prices tend to support this value.

    Not price policing just my .02 as I’ve been casually looking for one for a while.

    Zeke’s Peak for $1800? I’ll take three please.

    The market is closer to $3k+ on these like it or not. Even the $2500 is cheap. ICB is more common and sells in the $3k range.

    I think they are north of 2500 currently. I have been offered that a few times for mine. I have zero interest in selling outright but would be happy to work a trade for a rare pinball if anyone somewhat local is interested.

    I totally agree. At 3k they sell quickly. Tatio version is a 3k plus game.

    #197 1 year ago

    Yup, Ive been offered $3500 by several people for my Ice Version....
    Wild that I had 3 Taitos from $100-$150 each...no one wanted them 25 years ago.

    #198 1 year ago

    I sold a ZP in really nice original condition for $3400 last year.

    The ICE version is much better IMHO also. I had both at one time and kept the ICE. Better mechanics with smoother play and two more holes that actually add a little challenge.

    #200 1 year ago

    I've had serious offers of 3k from people picking up other games. Tempting, but i doubt it would be easy or cheap to find another one. I'm also not one of the people that got it really cheap. So a small profit isn't motivation to sell it.
