I just traded my WPT for a MSF...........both are great. So there's my vote, either of those

#52 5 years ago

Funhouse comes up for less than 2500 on here. They just tend to be player's grade.

For 2500 and under I would say BF. Low production and has been kept cheap due to the cost of the large dmd.

I am not sure if all the pins we can be buy here onder 2500 dollar would be te same as the US, but my list would be:

* No Fear
* The getaway (HSII)
* Twilight Zone
* Tommy
* Elvira and the partymonsters
* STNG
* TFTC
* RFM

Sadly (for OP and I alike), TZ and STTNG are neither in the sub-2500 category anymore.

the prices went up a lot last 2 years here too. The TZ abd the STTNG are just under 2500, not for long i guess.

But if i would name 1 for being most bang for a buck it would be a HS2. I loved that game, should have never sold it.

tons of games under 2500 that are good. List is too long, but here are some of my favorites.

SST
JP
Stargate
BF
Tommy
SW (de version)
SOF
Mousin around
Torpedo ally
RFM
POTO
Time machine (data east)
ES
FH (hovers around this area and players machine can be had for 2500 or under)
DM
Shadow (players shadows can be had for this)
Tee'd off
Wipe Out
Baywatch
Frankenstein
T3
T2
GI

the list goes on and on. 2500 is a lot to work with in the pinball world, especially if you know how to look around and willing to drive for good deals. Doesn't have to be perfect. Can be a dirty routed machine that , if you put a little time into it, cleans up and looks nice with a little love. Thats where you get your value from.

My favorites are:

Bad Cats
Whirlwind
F-14
Earthshaker
Diner
Taxi
EATPM

I am with you on the love for the System 11. The game play is outstanding and the original themes are more appealing to me than most licensed games.

T3, JD, DM and BW are my favorite $2500 or less games.

#63 5 years ago

I could see how a $2500 AFM would be the "most wanted" pin out there!

#64 5 years ago

Jackbot is a great under 2500 game!

#65 5 years ago

I would say TFTC, Jackbot, Judge Dredd and Getaway are four that you can find for less than 2500. They are all great games and themes.

#66 5 years ago

I just got an Elvira for 2500, and i think it is definitely worth it, terminator 2 art and sound just doesn't do it for me.

#67 5 years ago

I think a good JM, Dredd or Tommy (if lucky) would be great at or under $2,500

The topic of this thread isn't "DMD's you can get for under $600".

Quoted from Astropin:

A modern Stern......you're missing out on some really great games.

You got it. I don't like the way they feel or play. And yes I have played almost all of them.

Quoted from Skyemont:

Can a Funhouse be found in this price range anymore?

If it is a total disaster, yes.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I should have kept mine.

#75 5 years ago

Looking at what you have owned..... I think you have tried them all already..

Yeah I would say so. That is one of my grail pins, and I only have a few. I am hoping I can land one in the near future, but it is tough.
