I'm tired of reading about MM price as an investment, I actually play my games. F those that don't...............it's ruined the pinball hobby. Move along, please.

Well there is a new sheriff in town, yessir...

Interesting that the poll doesn't even give the option to vote for prices going down (there is one saying they will go up more first, then down).

There's a new sheriff in town Rob.

Yessir... Here's a loaded MM, it's got lighted troll eyes, butane dragon flamethrower mod, damsel in distress and a price that is too high.

Quoted from Hwawonyu:

I saw two MM sell for under 10k recently. Watched several AFMs sit and a couple other guys struggle with A list titles priced in CQ range. Thats all been in the last two months.

The MM I sold for 92 was a working base game, I paid that for it because I like restoring games or did.
I added up the cost of the parts and decided I didn't want another game I had so much money in I can't sell so I sold it as is.
I have a whole line up of them already, my WH2O will be my last restore and I am going back to building sand rails with my buddy who has two on order, a 1850 and a 2180 on rollers.
Ironic, my last game will be Whitewater and we take the rails out to Whitewater for testing.

Quoted from vid1900:

Because he is married.

I have a few friends that are hog ringed and pussy whipped by their wives and won't let them buy a machine.
One of them I loaned a machine to and she threw a shit fit and he had to get it out of the house.
Now that their kids are raised he is divorcing her so he can have a life.
Going to cost him most of what he has but he is to the point he doesn't care anymore.
Why is divorce so expensive?
Because it is worth it.
