    Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

    I offered $75 for this one, seller responded it was appraised for $700.
    Sure it was.
    waco.craigslist.org link

    And I'm sure that they can provide the documentation for said appraisal of course.

    Quoted from Mikala:

    Lets get back to the laughs. A $3,000 Fireball. But hey, he wants to make sure know that this is not the cheap crappy arcade version, this is the very rare professional home version.
    chicago.craigslist.org link

    This moron described the arcade version in the ad. And is clearly not aware that Bally made thousands of the home model as well. SMDH.

    Quoted from Mikala:

    "Hey guys, I got an idea. Let's take this pinball machine we know absolutely nothing about, put it in front of the the crapiest wall we can find in our furniture store and take a dozen photos". Oh, and let us not forget to put a ridiculous price on it.
    G Domino EM $1995.00
    chicago.craigslist.org link

    "Vintage condition"=we didn't do shit to it in terms of cleaning/repairs. We just plugged it into an outlet and hope it works enough for us to sell it.

    "very little use"

    And at that price it'll get little use still.

    #3002 3 years ago

    I like BK2K but not that much. $8500 is a little too rich for my blood....

    All the dents in the coin door add to the "rareness".

    $4500? Unrestored condition? Oh this is just......I just can't. SMDH.

    Quoted from jibmums:

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

    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

    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    Actually, anyone that has done this level of work, knows this is a bad decision.
    "The Pinball Shoppe" knows too, but are being pintarded again with their greed.
    Fairly common now until the next stall.
    You cannot recoup your labor costs to repair this machine.
    Most seasoned restorers will understand this period.
    $45/hour X400 hours(minimum)=$18K
    If anyone wants to charge $5400 for a restoring a game of this magnitude of current condition, I say "go for it".
    Start with finding a proper backglass, and another cabinet that is not falling apart and belt sand it.
    Alternatively, build a new cabinet from scratch.
    Re Stencil and paint.
    Well you have an empty husk.
    They find a $800-1200 playfield that is not trashed and swap it out.
    All boards need recertified, reworked, and repaired.
    All other wires and cabling needs fixed.
    All aspects of the transformer need potentially repaired.
    "Haha", most would rather treasure their time.
    This is a piece of trash, which should get parted out to save another machine, or thrown off a roof.
    If this is believe to be so valuable, someone should buy the game for $1500.
    I mean hey, you get free shipping right?
    Have I seen worse?
    Of course, but this is not a classic car frame.
    My guess is the game will fall apart before it arrives to the buyer...

    Agree with this assessment. If it was worth the effort they would have restored it themselves. Kiss is one of the few games that would be worth at least trying to polish up no matter how big a turd it is because there will most likely be someone willing to buy it but this example no way José-part this puppy out and get what you can for it. Personally I wouldn't pay more than $200-300 at the most ( the boards, displays, wiring, & playfield parts should be worth that much) and that's being generous.

    I'm not sure if a dead DMD on this machine qualifies as minor.

    It doesn't. In other news. I didn't know Jack Nicholson starred in Batman Forever....

    Where do you think that guy got 4000 dollars from?

    Out of his ass apparently....

    Don't answer that ad....you'll get shafted!

    Or you may get it in the ass!!!

    #3345 3 years ago
    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    Wait, I've seen pictures of this machine before, like months ago in another topic perhaps.
    Edit: Found it. It was in this topic:
    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/more-craigslist-laughs/page/64#post-3299811

    I thought that P.O.S. Kiss looked familiar. Shmuck paid $1495 for it !!! Normally I'd be a little sympathetic but in this case...P.T. Barnum was right - there is a sucker born every minute.

    Ditto. They should offer $300 to have it hauled off; it can't be in good shape given its present location (going by pictures in the ad).

    #3476 2 years ago
    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    Another moooooo...barn find.

    What the...? Tell me somebody isn't trying to sell that. I know times are hard for some folks but really now...

    Quoted from Catalyze:

    I really want the Street Fighter with all the mods on it. And I want to know why nobody will trade for the inflatable clown head?
    Meanwhile, here is an item of interest.........if you know Mouse-fu. Don't go alone.
    lynchburg.craigslist.org link

    Only about 10-15 minutes from me but even I'm not that hard up. And as for his attack mice well I know a few cats that owe me a favor
