I'm wondering if I trade my big buck hunter pro for a Star Trek pro if that seems like a fair trade? Any thoughts?
Ya I know the fun factor depends on the person I don't think the values are miles apart tho maybe a couple hundred bucks?
This isn't a done deal I've only brought it up to him, waiting for him to get back to me he said he would look into it
Well...like making any deal it only takes finding one person that agrees with the terms of the deal...good luck!
So what should be the terms an extra 500-1000? im not looking to screw anyone over here lol, I mean if he went straight up I'm down
No flow on BBH? what game you playing Dude. Super fast, fun and funny. Unique with the moving buck too!
"You got yourself a critter"
You'd have to be drunk on moonshine to pay $4500 for a big buck hunter. It's a terrible game.
Unless you're talking about the video game. That's fun.
Quoted from Micky:
It's the name of the game. Nothing to do with the 3 tier system Stern uses.
Big buck hunter pro was the name of the arcade machine too.
So by calling it what it is,big buck hunter pro, this is wrong? I am aware that the game does not have a 3 tier system, but the name of the game is big buck hunter pro, there is no denying that
As others have said, it all comes down to what you think the value is at. To me, if the other person was willing to trade straight up and you were good with it, it's a fair deal on both sides.
ST is worth more in the open market, but BBH is rare enough that sometimes you can get a really solid price for one because people can't find them. I own a BBH, and I bought it and had it delivered to to a show. A friend at the show told me he had a buyer for it at $5k+ if I wanted to sell because they are impossible to find. I still held mine.
Quoted from Whysnow:
nah, pretty simple and reliable mech.
Really? The one at our bar league location was an unreliable mess until the wire conduit design was completely changed. The stock design, we wires would catch when at on the conduit and break making the buck not register.
Elk also regularly needs tightening back up. It gets sloppy and then doesn't register. It can also wear to bare wood if it get's really sloppy.
Autolaunch is often an issue in elk because it can't make it all the way around.
About 1/2 the games I have played the buck channel is also not flush on both sides. Mech eng wise the game is a mess. Software, the game is a mess. Theme is awful. But it is one of my favourite games.
Its really up to you....Speed, Flow, and theme, make Star Trek a winner....
I, personally have enough like this to be happy.
I personally found I enjoyed Elvis, more than ST, at a $2000 savings.
Is the trade worth it? Sure if its your taste, and you have lots of $$$ info.
Only you know your tastes, family, space, etc....
Simply too many good choices!
Here in western Canada everything is selling and above values ($5k tftc for example) More pinball on location is bringing new young people with extra income into the hobby. However, if a bbh was listed on kijiji for 6k it would sit there for a while. If st pro is listed for 6k it probably sells the same day listed and wouldn't make it a week.
And bbh sells/trades quite often here in the west. Maybe they shipped more out here? They seemed to be in every other sports pub a few years back.
Yes - a thought.
Jump on that at once.
One game is excellent - one is barely OK, and certainly flawed code-wise.
Trek has one of the most complete codes in all of Stern pinball IMHO.
My top DMD regret sell - only did so to get Metallica when I could not afford both.
