4 super nice games, all working / clean

Sample Funhouse (serial # 500003) thinking thats the 3rd one made.
Sample Dr Who with a moving Dalek Head
Whirlwind (
World Cup Soccer.

I checked the price guide and the boston price guide, but id like some input from you guys.

I am not sure what you are looking for. You just bought these, so you know what you paid for them, and therefor what they are worth.

Nice score though.

that comment means nothing!!

Bought them as a lot and some friends are interested in buying a couple and I dont know how to price them.
I have a basic idea, I guess I can just go from there.

At least 8k for all those machines.

#5 6 years ago

sell each of the games for 1/4 of what you paid for the entire lot.

$10K for the lot, easy.

Condition is everything. Pins are hard to price without a lot of detailed information.

Funhouse from 2600 to 4000
Dr. Who from 1800 to 2600
Whirlwind from 1000 to 2600
WCS from 1400 to 2200

Leave them in the truck and deliver them up to Canada? I'll take all 4.

Funhouse 3500-4000
Dr Who 2000-2500
Whirlwind 1500-2000
WCS 2000-2500

There's my random guess without thinking to much...

ok, thanks! I think I got it. Sometimes its a good idea to bounce price off other collectors.

Here is what I was thinking:

Funhouse $3500-$5000
Dr Who $2500ish
Whirlwind $2000-$2500
WCS $2000-$2500

Well I sold a nice whirlwind for in that range 2300 I think.I paid 3800 for my sample FH a long time ago(before the internet) so I would guess it's worth 4500 to me now.Is your sample LS topcoat or Diamond Plate.Oh and say hello to my brother -he lives off Antelope Trail in Parker.
