Quoted from Frax:

All I know is that if these are going for 7k+ for HUO now (paid 4k for mine when I had it a few years ago. Single owner, no code updates, no coin drops from the un-resettable coin meter, person had box and reciept), Stern's got to be absolutely freakin' stupid if they're not trying to get the license back to re-run it. Not ashamed to say I put probably 200 bucks in protectors and LEDs and other mods, and sold for 5100...

I'm going to buy in January or February, and will pay 6-7k depending on condition (though if another NIB comes up for under $8k I'd do that). I've been hoping for a VE announcement as that'd be minty fresh for the same price range, but with all the QA issues at Stern lately I might be better off sticking with an LE or super minty original.

Location seems to play a huge factor. I'm thinking in West Coast prices which seem to be significantly higher than Midwest. Supply and demand. I could ship, but then I'd have to either roll the dice on a game without looking at it or factor in a few plane tickets.

Here's a machine that's fairly similar to the first one in your post, sold after 4 days for $6500 (color DMD is the biggest difference I saw):

I see some shopped ones sold for low $5s after about 3 weeks, probably the best comparison.

So at a guess, $6500-$6800 for a believable HUO, and maybe $5300-$5700 or so for routed out here.

Side note: Please please please do a shooter lane pic in any listings! As a prospective buyer, I'm looking at shooter lane, gimli hole, balrog playfield damage, and ring ramp damage. Closeups of these are super helpful. Anything else I should be looking for?
