    With the way machine prices are jumping all over the place, this question could be almost impossible to answer to the penny, but here goes...

    If you had $50k to drop on machines, what would make your lineup?

    Here's mine:
    TZ $8500
    Jurrasic Park Premium $8500
    Attack from Mars Remake LE $8500
    Tales of Arabian Nights $8500
    Walking Dead LE $8000
    Star Trek Premium/LE $8000

    I would go after the original Pinball Circus, but don't think that would be enough money.

    I'll play! If I had to do it all over again I'd spend my 50k as follows:

    Dialed In SE - $6500
    Star Wars Pro - $4500
    Game of thrones pro - $4500
    Maiden Pro - $5200
    Walking Dead pro - $5000
    Iron Man - $5000
    The Shadow - $4000
    Jackbot - $3500
    Whirlwind - $3500
    Meteor - $1500

    You have to check out the "What gameroom would you build if you had $50K to drop" thread...

    Where ever, make room, or some of the 50k is used to expand the game room. I’d like a nice medieval madness to add to my collection.( And by nice I mean routed ( rough but complete) that I can pick up for a decent price).

    Centaur 2 LE - $3300

    This is a great list but Star Wars pro and centaur 2 would have to be obtained for quite a bit less and then throw in a few EMs.

    I've never had much space until I moved recently. Had an El Dorado and loved it. Def. want to add a couple in the near future!

    #16 3 years ago

    AC/DC premium - 6,000
    Champion Pub - 5,000
    The Shadow - 4,000
    Medieval Madness - 9,000
    World Cup Soccer - 3,000
    STTNG - 6,000
    TBL - 12500
    AFM - 7000

    (I think I went a little over budget)

    Nice! It looks as though you’ve got a decent amount of space now and I believe you’ll find a few rad EMs that will help fill that space.

    Steve Kordek turned down an offer of $50K at Expo in 2005.

    LTG : )

    #19 3 years ago

    with 50K (and no virus lurking) , I would take a driving holiday though America and visit as many Pinsiders as would have me

    #20 3 years ago

    Dialed In $7000
    WOZ RR $9000
    BKSOR LE with Topper $9000
    JP LE $9500
    Iron Maiden LE $9000
    Hobbit $6500

    #21 3 years ago

    It wouldn't be on a bunch of newer pins that will depreciate in value.

    #22 3 years ago

    If I can keep my current machines?

    A silly clean TZ - $10k
    IMDN PRE - $9k (Gotta put an Elwin in my lineup )
    DP Pro - $5.5k
    Dialed In LE , Wonka LE or Clean Hobbit - $9k (Need a JJP LE +/-)
    Dolly Parton - $1500-$2k
    Fathom - $6k
    Hot Doggin' - $3k
    High Speed - $2500-$3k
    Harlem Globetrotters - $2500

    That should be close enough to 50k for Government work.

    If I get a good deal or two I would grab a Bad Girls for the hell of it.
