I've been trying to talk an arcade owner down on his last remaining pin, which would be my first DMD machine. He's not overly fond of the thing but he's got money in the table and doesn't want to let it go for less than $1600. That's too much for a Lethal Weapon 3, especially one that is currently on location (although it plays fine, needs a shopping and maybe a little playfield work), but there's just not a lot going on in my area (Atlanta, GA-ish) as far as decent project pins. A Craigslist full of busted EMs and over-priced and over-shopped restore jobs.
Considering the lack of available project tables in my area and the ever-increasing cost of pins in general, how much would I be over-paying for this thing? I already own a Time Machine, so I'm familiar with a few of the... peculiarities... of Data East builds.
