Wow, I didn't realize this title was that hard to come by and sold for such high prices. I had a chance to play one a year ago and enjoyed it, so I put it on my wish list. The Mr. Pinball price guide says that 1,230 were built and that the value is $1,400, so I was assuming maybe I could pick up a nice one sometime in the $2K range. (LOL) So why is it so few seem to exist now despite the original production run being over 1,200 (which is still rare, but not THAT rare)? Did an unusually high number of them get destroyed? Also, how could the annual price guide be that far off the mark? Some people swear by that book when buying games. I know that nice examples of older titles often bring way more than the book price, but this one is nowhere in the same ballpark.
