I'll give you a deal and sell you mine for half that

#3 63 days ago

10k for getaway but he'll pay 600-800 for coin op foosball tables and resell it for 1200. What a great guy

#4 63 days ago

Not the shy type of seller either

#5 63 days ago

....but how many plays does it have in the last 6 years ? Does it come with legs ? Is it Imamaculate ?

What about the dirt bag bonus ?

I'm just kidding.....as seller stated, I can SEE that it's a moneymaker

....and also, it's apparently a Racing game....

Is it the number one prototype?

#7 63 days ago

Are recreational drugs legal up there now?

#8 62 days ago

Looks nice but its not worth a penny over $9,995

#9 62 days ago

I am totally relisting my Stargate now. I'm thinking $8,500 would be about right.

Isn't this how retail works though? Put a super high price on something, have a sale, then another discount. The customer thinks they are getting something on the cheap, meanwhile, the retailer is getting coin.

I can see this lister having a "fire sale" and letting it go for $4,300.

We have the same guys over here, one chap have been struggling to get his 6000 USD Centaur sold (i think its still up for sale, even after like 5 months..), and then we have another guy selling a broken, reset issue plagued and "used condition" Gorgar for some 1100 USD.

After reading so many of these laughably overpriced ads, I have to wonder what is it about pinball that attracts delusional people who cannot spell correctly.

#12 62 days ago

Nothing surprises me anymore. Stern charging $9500 (or more for a Beatles) for a pin with bogus LE marketing has emboldened sellers to ask all sorts of crazy amounts.

#13 62 days ago

Fortunately, the seller is apparently in no rush to sell ...

Lmao

Yeah, that’s the reason people are asking crazy money for pinball machines all of a sudden starting like 8 years ago.

Man, you’d think Stern kills puppies and slaps people’s moms by the way their are in pinsiders’ heads.

#15 62 days ago

Some people do this for advertising only. (Ebay comes to mind) They do not intend to sell the game just bring attention.

?
So, they don't want to actually sell the game?

I don’t understand it either.

It seems like almost all of these sellers come across in their ad copy as fairly loathsome people utterly lacking in self-awareness, usually with abundant “I know what I have” arrogance. Most of these sellers seem like the sort of folks I am happy to not have the displeasure of knowing personally, let alone doing 5-figures worth of business with!

Do any of these ads actually yield sales at the asking prices? Why does it seem as if “catching more flies with honey” is such a persistently elusive concept in much of the pinball realm?

Rarely.

Yeah, 8 years ago, this would have been way out of line when Stern had one price for all their machines (4K). Now that they ask 9K or more in some cases, the 10K Getaway, while still an outrage, doesn't seem like as great of one.

#20 62 days ago

What evidence made you think all was well?

You make a great point.

Asking stupid prices for pinball machines was invented in q4 2018 when Beatles came out.

Never saw it before then!

DAMN YOU STERN!!!

#22 62 days ago

To be fair, a Stern Pro is over $8,000 NIB up here... oh wait, this is still a ripoff.

#23 62 days ago

BEWARE he does not sell often!!! grab your bargain now!

#24 62 days ago

i wonder if he would take $8500 for that sweet sweet Big Guns!?

Just wondering if this is the "2019 Unofficial Crazy Pinball Prices" thread.

#28 62 days ago

yes this and the $65,000 TZ

#29 62 days ago

Maybe I'm a bit slow, but I'm looking at it but not knowing what it will make in a busy location.

#30 62 days ago
