I'll soon be acquiring a Stern IJ4 in great condition. I'm not a big fan of the game personally as I played it in the past.

Was considering a 3 for 1 trade.

IJ4 for possibly an LW3, Hook and LAH. I know the likely hood of someone having all 3 and wanting to part with them may be unlikely, but would it be a fair trade? Thoughts?

Also considering 2 for 1 with other modern games, any suggestions that you would consider equal value?

I seem to be gravitating in the direction of Data East games at the moment, am not opposed to some Sterns as well, even though it means more likely a 1 for 1.

Why are you even getting it ? Seems to be a difficult pin to sell or trade if valued above 4250 in huo perfect condition? Not sure on what your getting it for but lw3, hook and lah can all usually be acquired for around 3-4 k in working order.i think you will have a difficult time trading it bc its not one of the better pins for the price .

Not that your question answers mine, but if you must know I'm taking it in as part of a cash/trade deal. Although I respect your opinion I also see it as possibly an opportunity for someone to get a newer stern and trade in some of their older games.

On a side note, IJ4 may not be everyone's favorite game, but you certainly must have liked it to trade a nice LOTR for it .....as someone posted.....Deal of the century for whoever got it. Just goes to show, you never know if you don't ask.

Not that your question answers mine, but if you must know I'm taking it in as part of a cash/trade deal and because for what I'm getting it for, I won't lose anything.. Although I respect your opinion (and see you have an IJ4 you've been struggling to offload yourself), I also see it as possibly an opportunity for someone to get a newer stern and trade in some of their older games. Some times people just want to change things up.
Let's look at some more recent titles to include TFLE and TWD. Again, titles that are not holding value so well, but there are still buyers and traders wanting them. In time, I guess we'll see.....

Wel, if your getting a good deal and cant lose than thay makes sense but you didn't mention that lol.ive never had a ij4 for sale? A few friends have and it didnt last long and had trouble getting what they had in it .I understand changing things up I do it often .you cld definitely do 1for1 trades for twd or some other sterns in the same boat as ij4.heck I just got a brand new met for mid 4s but wld never think about doing that trade because the gameplay is much better on met.i think it will be easier to sell it and buy the 3 data east pins you want , which is what I was trying to say as ij is a great theme that alot of people love.

.

Why do I have to I guess is my point?
Sorry, I did confused the sale I mentioned. Amended above.
Thanks, have a sweet MET, so no worries, I won't ask you for yours.

A sale is always possible, I won't exclude trades as well. I just wanted to see if I was in the ballpark even tho it was a long shot to have all in one place. I may have to be patient and purchase separately or maybe someone will show up with a trade I haven't thought of or looked at either. I'm open to discuss.

Thanks for the insight tho BigD
