    They lowered it to $3500 from $4500. Someone's gonna snap it up at this price.

    Quoted from Jakers:

    Price police needed. Is this a good deal???

    Cabinet looks very faded. Will need new decals!

    No real price issues here, I just have the comment "that did not last long".
    Another "200 plays" machine.

    Reason?
    "Willing to trade for 2 other pinball machines".
    Should have thought about before dropping $7K in a 9 year old design.

    Of course the rest of the photos are from a JJP "The Hobbit" anyway, so what's the point...

    But he has pictures of a Hobbit. I guess he got confused on which one he wanted to sell...

    Quoted from jwinn1812:

    Well I am sure they are both "200 plays".
    It really is not that hard to figure out how to use the service, but things seem to have deteriorated in education.
    I literally just was enticed into an attempted argument over the owner on Facebook locally, who cannot figure out how to use anything other than a game flyer and non related game photos.

    There is an old saying, "Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining."

    Yeah.....It may be HUO, but that price though.

    That's been for sale for a while, it a beautiful machine, but your right: overpriced.

    #3109 3 years ago

    buffalo.craigslist.org link

    "I have to agree that this is an astounding price to ask for this game. I have a copy of this game and would be willing to sell mine for $1200. I know this still seems a bit much but my game has 209 coats of wax and the good housekeeping seal of approval for no bugs or rat turds inside of it. I will also include a quarter so your first play will be free. Thanks for checking out this listing and please remember that some folks selling items such as pinball games are not only misinformed they are greedy as well and will try to take advantage of stupid people."

    209 coats of wax, you guys! You know it's true because it's such a specific number. Plus, he won't charge you to test it out before you buy! And he's nice enough to remind you that sellers sometimes misrepresent their items.

    It looks like it is brand new. Nice machine in my opinion.

    Definitely sad. That's a pretty rare game. 885 and there can't be many left.

    That appears to come from the same place as the $16k EK that was in another thread. It's beside the same table and mirror.

    Well he does say the inserts were "reset"... but hey, at least it was waxed afterwards.

    Not as bad as others seen here but not many pop up in my area.

    The very rare WMS Smart Set, $800. Seller insist it is 1 of 50 in existence. With a production run of 4,500, I wonder where they all went.

    It is better than most player quality games though.

    $4200 Fathom, who wants it?
    Check out the playfield, he rates it as a "B" quality rating.
    You cannot properly wax bare wood.
    Game has electronic faults.
    "I know what this game is worth, and how rare it is..."
    Actually, no you don't, and it is not restored.

    The march to the next pinball market stall continues...

    Yea it's a "B" if you count backwards from Z.

    #3135 3 years ago
    Quoted from TecumsehPlissken:

    There are so many other things wrong with this machine and it is not worth discussing. Most people here that know the situation had four words to describe, "stay the ! $@# away".

    You cannot properly wax a bare wood playfield. The wax "soaks in" and creates a layer that causes dishing.

    What CL area is this and was there another listing for the Mr & Mrs Pacman?

    #3138 3 years ago

    This one is from Pinside but it made me chuckle. This guy has his Hurricane up for trade at $1800 on here but then evaluates it at $4000 against my machine.

    I do think Hurricane is undervalued but I wasn't born yesterday. Not the best tactic to build a good rep in the community.

    Quoted from jibmums:

    Price on Fathom has been dropped to $3500. Mr & Mrs Pac Man is priced at $600 - everything "works great" but solenoids don't fire...priceless

    This looks like the game was modified to use the doorbell button as a way to add credits to the game. Clearly, $250 additional value from Home Depot. Playfield and backglass do not look to bad though. However, "Plug n Play" applies to SS electronics.

    I'm thinking Worst Case Scenario: It's on the side, so maybe it's a hack for a bad Flipper switch.

    I kid. Saw the wires going from that side to the coindoor in another picture.

    I figured that's what it was for but it still an interesting mod for a free play button.

    How the Hell can he tell if the T2 works or not if you can't see the play-field?

    #3150 3 years ago

    I saw that one too... Don't forget they are not firm on price... Maybe you can get it for fifty... Plus a couple of grand based on the bidding process here in the twin cities...
