4.5k Euro?

#11 5 years ago

4.1k€ = 4.5k$ aprox

eh, at this point I'd use the 4.5k towards a NIB remake

I'm with this. I know games are worth what the market will pay but frankly, I'm not ever going to drop that kind of cash on a beater like that unless all of the parts to fix it are easily available, I can DO it, and I'm investing some "sweat equity" to make a LOT of money. Like...doubling my money, at least. If it was 3500, I'd say..sure go for it. But at 4.5k? That's gotta be a game you really want and you ONLY want an original....which it basically won't be anymore after you replace the cabinet art, plastics, playfield, and probably replacing a lot of the things like pop bumper caps, etc...it adds up fast.

Question is how much is your time worth, how much do the parts all cost, and do you even give a single crap about if you lose money or not?

I'm betting the cost of the remake is a heck of a lot higher in Serbia...

Agree 100%

first i cant find remake near by even if i find i had to pay extra 35% on top for tax and import duties.

2nd i would like to stick with originals and not remakes .

3 i can try to negotiate and drop price a bit

4 friend of mine can do full restauration mint factory condition for reasonable fee(3-5x less than in usa or europe)

5 i will use this only for my personal pleasure and will not think to flip or sell ever in my life

before u ask questions here about restoring ... here is how my friend fully restored indy for example .
