Not really there are not a lot of guesses there just talking, I was on this earlier today.......trust the mule to try and pick on a Mato comment.........actually wouldn't expect anything less from you to get your 15 points worth.

#5 7 years ago

One million dollars.....

#6 7 years ago

More then the reserve

#8 7 years ago

19.95 plus shipping and handeling of course, but if you responde now in a limited time we will include 2 for the price of one plus more shipping and handeling.

#9 7 years ago

I'm with Lloyd. I think it will end near the $30,000 area. My official guess is $32,500. GLWTS

#10 7 years ago

$29,586.21 take that Lloyd

Disclaimer - this is not a personal attack

#11 7 years ago

How about $24,569

#12 7 years ago
Quoted from coz6:

$29,586.21 take that Lloyd

Darn, I over bid.

LTG : )
Disclaimer : The price wasn't right.

#14 7 years ago

Those huge flippers make it look stupid, IMO.

#15 7 years ago
Quoted from pinlawyer:

Those huge flippers make it look stupid, IMO.

I take it you're not bidding?

#16 7 years ago

27,500

#17 7 years ago

I know two guys who are each willing to bid 30k, so they say.

#18 7 years ago

Ok my guess: $30,775.69

#19 7 years ago

I found this kinda funny , go down to the Q&A for the Seller of the Ebay ad.

"
Q: Hi I am genuine interested in purchasing King Kong pinball machine what is buy it now price or how much are you after.Can you please povide me phone number so i can call you. Thanks Robert
A: The buy it now price is $12, 000.00. Telephone Number is ....."

I deleted the guy's phone number for this post but I wonder if the other guy ever called on it.

#20 7 years ago

Its now at $18127.27, bidding has slowed a bit.

#21 7 years ago
Quoted from Mato:

bidding has slowed a bit.

And with only 5 1/2 days left.

#22 7 years ago

Hmmm, this one will probably get real stupid, so I'll guess $35,000.

#24 7 years ago

Any guesses on whether or not it will be relisted for nonpayment.

#26 7 years ago

40,000

#27 7 years ago

$18323.09........5 days to go, love to watch the last minute and watch it go nuts.

#28 7 years ago

Eleventy hundred...or something

#29 7 years ago

Wow its been removed.......guess we will never know, does anyone know what happened?

#30 7 years ago

probably sell outside of ebay to avoid fees ???? for a price that he couldn't refuse

$25k is my mystery guess

#31 7 years ago
Quoted from Mato:

Wow its been removed.......guess we will never know, does anyone know what happened?

Still shows up for me.

#32 7 years ago

I still see it.

Currently at US $18,328.09

I count 7 bidders who have come in over $15k, so I think this can go a while yet.

Here is my official guess: $33,248.87

#33 7 years ago

Yep just found it, eBay was having problems last night.......last minute bidding is going to be fun to watch........bring some popcorn.

#34 7 years ago

If this machine is from a museum you'd think its sell alone would be enought to keep the doors open awhile.

#35 7 years ago

40,251.00

If two people want it at 30k they will pay 40k its like buying a SUV at that price.

#36 7 years ago

$23,758.09. This one could get interesting at the very end...

#37 7 years ago

initial guess was 16.5K

I will have to guess again. 25.6K

#38 7 years ago
Quoted from Shoot_Again:

initial guess was 16.5K
I will have to guess again. 25.6K

No double dipping.......haha, its going slow at the mo

#39 7 years ago

Its going to sell for lots and lots of doll hairs.

#40 7 years ago

Plus shipping to add, maybe they will do movie about this sale lol

#41 7 years ago

$18800 and still counting

#42 7 years ago

That is one extremely expensive toy.
Waste of $$$ imo.

#43 7 years ago

If I didnt need a 80k digital projector I would be bidding big bucks. I would use it as advertising, come see the 8th wonder of the pinball world, probably better than all the newspaper and radio ads I do now for advertising, plus its a great tax mark down.

#44 7 years ago
Quoted from Wamprat:

That is one extremely expensive toy.
Waste of $$$ imo.

Some people drop a ton of money on a stamp with an upside down plane on it. Pins actually don't come close to other types of collectibles.

#45 7 years ago

Is it worth more then a medieval madness?

#46 7 years ago

$19100

#48 7 years ago

Well well, $20100 it is then.........think it went lower then everyone thought and no real frenzy over the last minute.

#49 7 years ago
Quoted from Mato:

My guess is $22700.........winner winner chicken dinner I hope. Hahaha

I think you may be the closest guess. Time to cook that chicken! Chicken-Dinner-1329.jpg
