    Well I bid on Robin Williams personal Hook machine today, absentee bid in NYC Sothebys auction, talk about not even being close, it was a gift from Steven Spielberg who directed Robin in the movie, it sold for $16,000 with a 23% buyers premium!!

    What was your bid? Anything more than $3000 is over paying no matter who owned it

    I figured it would go for more than $3000 to $5000. With names like Spielberg and Robin Williams probably some other celebrities bid on it. Wouldn't surprise me if Jay Leno isn't now making a pinball collection.

    My bid was $2300, with the buyers premium would have taken it to 3K

    Was there a plaque or something unique that showed that this machine was presented to Robin Williams? Or was it just a production game that he owned?

    Pinball machine, with key (76 x 54 x 24 in.; 193 x 137.2 x 61 cm), with back glass vignettes featuring Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook and Williams as Peter Pan; with plaque reading: "World Premiere, December 8, 1991, Specially Produced For Robin Williams, by Data East Pinball, Inc. This was a gift from Steven Spielberg, who directed "Hook.""

    It says there's a plaque, but I'm wondering if it's just the score card on the right side on the apron.
