Just curious why TS has remained steady at around $2K for a nice one while every other game has increased 20%-100% in the last 6 months?

I was recently reading a "price check" thread and someone had mentioned, "oh, don't pay more than $2.2K for a really nice one". LOL. To me, that seems like an amazing bargain.

And the really cheap pins, such as fish tales and a lot of the Data East games that were about $1K are now $1700+. Not trying to get into an argument as to whether those games are worth it or not, but relative to TS, TS kills them as far as gameplay IMO.

For me, I have a minty TS, and I don't see it rolling out my door (if I could ever let it go) for less than $3K, especially given what I would have to pony up for another pin at current prices.

For those getting into pinball, I think TS is one of the best values, period, and it's not going to be much longer before people realize it.

Anyone else think TS is undervalued right now? Or is the back glass THAT bad? LOL.

Quoted from Rick471:

I sold mine 2 weeks ago for $1500 and it was in really nice shape

That's crazy low for a nice condition machine... I wish I would have known, would have bought it and flipped it and made $500.

Quoted from Rick471:

Baiter said:A game that has surpassed the $3k threshold as Shadow has is no longer "underpriced" IMO.
I wouldn't pay 2k for this title. 3k is just way too high unless it is almost NIB condition.
That damn background music is so annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!

Background music in pinball sucks in just about every game. If the gameplay is awesome, such as in TS, you can overlook the music. I actually can't even recall what the music sounds like, and I play TS regularly.

Some of the most annoying background music is in pinball. I HATE "twilight zone" (golden earring, really?). Hasn't stopped me from loving to play pinball and TZ is what, #2 on the rankings list?

I really don't buy the argument that "not having pops" kills the flow of the game. I've never played a game and thought "man those pop bumpers kick ass!". Sure they are part of just about every single pinball, but they are just not missed in TS.

To me, the second playfield is one of the more fun second playfields, and in no way would I rather have pop bumpers there.. and I really couldn't imagine where you could put pop bumpers in this game without ruining the flow or gameplay.
