Just gathering info to help me decide what to do (if you read my other thread...)

My TZ: Bought this summer from a guy who kept it up at his cabin in northern CO. It only got played a few times a year and I honestly didn't ask where he got it from since when I saw it I knew I wanted it and didn't want to utter the words HOU less he jack up the price (Never even had a lockbar installed though).

PF: ZERO wear, full cliffy set (everything he makes for TZ), Gumball mod, Slot machine mod (wheels spin), Crack in Mega flip sign but have a new one not installed, New LED clock board installed, but original one still works, Shiny and Colorful, kept under blanket, couple spots with Mylar, small bubble under one mylar. Full LED's, New premium balls, powerball, No credit dot - everything 100%. Shopped just before I bought 6 months ago, still very clean. I'd rate it 9.5 but I'm not an expert rater..

Translite: Perfect LED's in backglass.

DMD: Perfect no lines out - very bright.

Cabinet: Probably a 8.5-9.0 Very few small dings. Pincab protectors, only left backbox decal faded, undercab LED lights.

Boards: Original very clean - had a professional repair the BR2 and 5v power supply sections with new components, It has a remote battery case, no acid previously. Bought a spare rottendog power driver board when I had the BR2 issue but ended up not installing it.

Love this game but easier to replace then a WH2O, based on what has been happening as of late with the price of TZ's what do you think it's worth?

My HS2. Just shopped it out 3 days ago, full teardown and polish. New flippers, New rubbers, Has a few LEDS in inserts and backbox but mostly lamps (ran out of LED's). Has an NV ram upgrade (no batteries needed - ever), no acid previously. Boards are all clean. Plastics were all in great shape,

PF: Very nice but has some insert wear from not being level around the RPM rotaries. I'm working on fixing this and repairing these. Very minimal wear on the bonus hole. Overall though its really nice and has a good shine and colors. No credit dot - everything 100%

Cabinet: Faded on main right side all others look good. Cabinet condition though is excellent minus the one faded side. Has pincab protectors (clear ones)

DMD: Perfect nice and bright no lines out

Translite: Perfect

Topper works 100%

The TZ is probably worth $4500 or so.

Thanks gweempose, I really like the way this one plays as well. Each TZ seems to have a personality of it's own and I like the way this one "rolls".

That is a beautiful TZ!!! The Getaway is no slouch either. I also think you could get about 4.5K for that TZ pretty easily.

TZ I would guess 4-4200.

Just because it doesn't have a lockdown bar does not mean it has not been routed. Most routed machines don't get lockdown bars. TZ didn't do well on route so many of them got pulled after only a few years of use. Your is pretty nice, but the cabinet has fade and once you hit the 4's you can get a machine with new decals if you wait. Fixing that would mean a lot of work and 300 unless you find someone parting out a decal set.

HS2 - 1200

PF wear and faded cabinet makes it pretty average.

LED's don't add value to machines. Yes they are expensive to do, but a good portion of collectors hate leds, some don't care, and a few see it as a plus. Pincab protectors are nice, but they don't add much to the value. Cliffys add some depending on the person. I throw them on my games, but usually I do not up the price because of them as people will look at the average value for a machine and unless it is exceptional in some way it still goes for the average value.
