Buddy of mine has really been trying to get this thing from me. He offered $2500 cash last night if I'd help him bring it home. His car can't handle it. I got it for much less. I traded a TSPP I didn't pay that much for.

Part of me is thinking I could score a couple more pins with the cash.

My buddy got his for 3200CAN, prices are a little higher where I am though. It's a VERY VERY nice example, from a collector. Also has upgraded sound system, pinball pros I think..

Hope that helps.

Guess it really depends on:

(a.) how nice yours is.
(b.) how good of a friend your buddy is: does he qualify for the Friends & Family pricing?

I find the pricing on this title a little tricky (although what pin isn't). It's trying to take off in value, but is having a bit of a hard time given its history.

In April, a very nice example had 19 bids and sold for $3,300 on Ebay (pics/video gone, item # 180650151915).

Most recently, this one with a beat PF sold for $2,400 (although I'm always a little suspicious of 1 bid auctions):

FWIW, I paid $2,350 for a near-CQ example back in the Fall.

That's a good price . I sold a very nice one with every mod for $2600

1. Condition of course always plays a part in pricing. Super nice = little above 3000, probably goes down from there. (Restored, HUO obviously higher)

2. As mentioned friend/family special price versus selling on open market. Since it is a friend, I really wouldn't worry about pricing it a little lower than what you could sell it for to a stranger.

You get the added advantage of going over to his house to play the pin. That's got to be worth something.

Mine is a very nice example. Had a couple dings on the back that I was able to touch up. I'd give the cabinet, overall, an 8.5. Everything has been touched up and looks great. You have to know where the touch ups are to be able to spot them. The playfield is damn near flawless. I've put some work in to it. Also has CT LEDs

That's a great price offer.

It's fair around where I live I don't see them listed for sale for less than $2,700-$3,200 not sure how Texas prices are though. Like you said you would be making money and sounds like you have interest in other pins and are losing interest in STTNG so selling might be the way to go here.
