Hi everyone. New here, first time buyer!
I'm looking at an F-14 Tomcat machine in decent shape. Seller is asking $1200. The playfield had mylar applied at some point; backglass has a protective sheet too I think. The mylar covering is a bit flaking/peeling in 2-3 spots. Cabinet is very good except for a 1-inch long, thin chip on the back edge of the backbox.
The game is 100% playable but:
* The flippers are a little bouncy (a little bit of "give" when struck)
* The beacons don't rotate or light up.
It looks OK inside though from what I can tell - no rat's nest of wiring. I *think* the solenoids look OK - maybe they look a tiny bit..bulging?
How much should I pay for this machine, do you think?
Thanks for your help!
