I thought this machine was rare and pricey. Modern Pinball has one for a crazy price of $25k. So why is there one on Ebay for BIN @ $2k?
2013 price guide has it for $1800ish.
looks to be in pretty sweet condition. 100 made.
I think it's very colorful and unique and probably not a bad price if you were semi local to OH.
If my kids were still young I may go for it at $2k to have some fun and try to hook (indoctrinate) them on pinball.
I'm a free market capitalist, but would still feel guilty about taking some well-off, Manhattan sucker for $25k. When I saw the listing and remembered Modern Pinball had one, I Googled Punchy and Modern Pinball and this article was the first to come up.
Saw one locally a few years ago. Didn't know much about it, looked it over, my reaction was basically, "Meh, who cares." Doesn't matter if they made 100 or 100k of them, I wouldn't be interested at any price.
I want to own one someday but not that bad and maybe won't ever get to try on if prices have reached that range
I have a friend who has one, and there is no way I would ever pay 2000 for that game. Maybe 100 bucks tops. Its just not that great to me.
Remember, rare doesn't always mean valuable (or fun!)
Yep. If they priced their machines normally, then the machines would actually sell. Then they'd have no machines. Then they'd make no money at the door. Then they'd have to change their name to Modern Empty Room. And who the hell would wanna go there???
I was trying to find that site from back in the day but couldn't remember the name. Thanks for posting that. Just by the way it's written you can tell they were joking.
Punchy is an ok game. I have played it many times. I wouldn't want to own one as it's more of a novelty than anything. I have seen quite a few for sale in the $700 to $1100 range. I wouldn't pay that unless you have a big collection and just want something rare/unique or you are buying it for the kids.
