I'm considering buying this WCS94. It's a bit of a drive so I can't see it in person first and I thought I'd look for Pinside's opinion. See pics. It's currently being routed, and owner is selling for $2400. Seems slightly high to me, but what do I know. Everything is supposed to be working, only issues are cosmetic like scratches/missing goalie. What do you think, Pinside?

From the limited pics I would say too high. With some TLC it looks like it could clean up nicely, but at that price point it's not worth it IMO. I would say $1,800 give or take.

2000 it looks likes there are a lot of GI lamps not working .Check condition of main center ramp with diverter ,it gets damaged were diverter passes through ramp

1700 TOPS in that condition. WCS is 2400 when fully clean and super nice. If you cant get if for 1700 or less then you are better off looking for a nicer example and passing on this one.

1800 sounds right. It'll clean up.

It's not fully working, there's a credit dot. Likely just a bad switch, but seller saying its fully working with that dot is a red flag. Ask to see the board connectors. GI being out may be burnt connectors. I hate games with the big security bar across the front. If you plan on keeping the game, you'll need to take it out and redecal the front, unless you like looking at it.

In that condition definitely under $2000.

Pretty sure someone has asked about this exact WCS in another price check thread as I recognize those exact pictures. So be extra careful. That thread was from a while ago so maybe the seller didn't budge on the price or the buyer discovered bad surprises when looking over the game and walked away.

Pass. Like Lermods said, there is something wrong with it, so the seller saying it is fully working means basically nothing. Plus, with the long drive, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. It probably looks better in the pictures then it does in person. Things like mismatched flippers are also a warning that this machine probably isn't taken care of. Who knows what the boards look like.

Not sure where your location is, and for $2400, you should be able to get a nice WCS. You could even get a nice one shipped to you for not much more.

If you don't expect much and are okay with taking on a project, maybe offer like $1200 before even seeing it. It the guy wants to get rid of it, maybe you can score a nice deal.

Thanks all for the responses. Yeah I already asked about wiggle room on price and the owner said he was firm. He said they're currently making money on location so he's in no hurry to sell. It's quite a drive to get there so I'm glad to have confirmation that he's asking too much and save myself a trip. Ill be passing on this.
