Looking at one soon in relatively good condition (from the pics)...

Anyone buy/sell one lately? Curious as to what I should offer.

Also, I have never played does it play?

#2 6 years ago

$800-$1000? There was a nice, unshopped example that lingered on the Birmingham Craigslist for a long time at $1000. No idea what kind of players they are though.

No idea on price, cant say I have seen many for sale. I picked mine up a year ago for a killer price so I wouldnt think its relative. I would think anything under $1400 would be a deal if its nice.

As far as game play, I love it, and everyone that comes over that has played it thinks its fun

I sold a very nice one recently for $1500. Gameplay was OK,but the software was never completed. Could have been a lot better.

Agree anything under $1500 is a good price. I've played it a few times and I think it's one of the better System 3's with great modes and some tough shots. If you like Gottliebs I think you'd really be happy with it.

There are 16 sales records of Barb Wire on Pinball Price and the average sale price is $1746.00 for this game, but this number is spiked by an insane ebay sale in 2011. All other sales would indicate a number much closer to $1100

Remember a game is only worth what somebody will pay you for it, You be the judge:

Decent gameplay and System 3 reliability are +++. Value suffers from the theme. Nice examples can be had for $1200.00 or so.

#8 6 years ago

Thanks for the input, unfortunately the guy sold it before I could get there today! Said it went for under $1,000...wish I found it sooner!

I love the theme and the backglass, really didn't care how it played but was curious. I am a system 3 fan and this would have looked nice between my Stern Playboy and Hardbody!

#9 6 years ago

$1200 is spot on.

Those tits & everything else to go with it should be worth a mother load! Especially because of the limited quantity. Man I miss Pam

Don't worry brotha-I will take care of her(;

Barb Wire is a very under-rated game. It has a great layout and is really fun to play. If you can find a decent condition one for under $2000-I would jump on it. It is also the last Gottlieb ever made before they closed their doors. I like to think of it as the CC of Gottliebs. Hard to find, and hard to find in collector quality condition.

HAHAHA, the CC of Gottliebs. That is pretty funny.
