Quoted from PhilGreg:
Ok now you've done it. I just found out about Mondo and I want to buy everything.
Prices seem to be all over the map on eBay and I know my way around the price of a pinball machine but have NO idea what's FUN! style prices and regular prices.
I'd also like to not have the guys who bought an FT and WW for 1000$ and got a BJ on the side pricing.
So, in the below 300$ range let's say, how does it work? I see some stuff if the 75-125$ range, some stuff in the 250-350$... different runs or qualities or...?
(Sorry for participating in the derailment...)
It's gonna be all over the map, but generally speaking figure ballpark $50 for a new one if you got in before it sold out. And we're talking most things selling out within minutes of being announced. You slip on clicking that link from Twitter and forget it.
After that it's just what scalpers are charging, and what you're willing to pay.
There's only one run, no reprints, but often there will be a "variant" print, that's got some alternate colors, or metallic ink, or glow in the dark or whatever. Usually the variant is more limited, and sold for a little more (say $75 instead of $50).
Obviously you'll see people trying to flip those for more. The variant isn't automatically "better", just different. If you're trying to measure value it might hold it better, but no guarantee, and they're all so limited it doesn't really matter much IMHO.
These are the Mondo prints I have behind me right now:
50% pinball rate, I'd love to see 100% of them as pins though!
