10k by x-mas?

#4 1 year ago

Haven't you heard? The remakes are coming!

#5 1 year ago

Realistically, what are the odds to find one?

#6 1 year ago

about the same as Jim Morrison still be alive!

#7 1 year ago

One was for sale here a year or so back and the asking price was around $80k. But that was long before the current remake was announced or even rumored.

Prices dropping faster than college girl panties.

..And so people think originals might be cheaper.

I know where there is a very nice original Capcom Kingpin ... Very private collector near me and he already has stupid money, so I know this one will NOT be for sale...

Best of luck locating one,

Not good, but you'll never know unless you try.

#13 1 year ago

I know of 2 of them - both definitely not for sale

#14 1 year ago

This is almost as crazy as trying to buy a TNA right now without waiting in line.

#15 1 year ago

The funny part is that at least three of the current original Kingpin owners are supporters of the project.

#17 1 year ago

I know that my high end client will not let go of his. They do not change hands much, that's for sure. And the people that can afford it, really don't care about the money part.

#18 1 year ago

Save $48,500 and buy a Breakshot.

That wouldn’t take super crazy money. $10k and you can buy mine.

#20 1 year ago

Bump back to the top. I'm excited about the remake, but would love the shot at an original! Please let me know if you are even remotely interested in selling. Thanks!

Would you throw a King Kong too? I'm still dreaming of that Long Duck Dong makeover.

Who ever has the pinball 2000 Playboy prototype...you and I need to have a beer!

I've played it and its meh - works sometimes - is very far from complete

I love your enthusiasm! The layout for Playboy was a great layout, and the sound tracks for it were pretty nice, though very few were finished at the time WMS shut down.

Quoted from iwantansi:

Unfortunately, this is a very very accurate statement about the game.

I'd love to build one some day, but it'll just take a TON of work to get it going. Certainly more than it took for KP and Wizard Blocks combined.

That would be awesome to work on pinball 2000 playboy one of these days , but for now I'm fixed on your Kingpin project.
It was such a great surprise to see and play Kingpin.
Hope you fruits of labor are bountiful and the Diet Mt. Dew perpetual.

Bump again! Time to get rid of that 20 year old pin and buy a new one! Drop me a note, I am sure we can work something out.

Thanks for looking!

The last one we were aware of trading hands went for over 60k.

It's not a title that our remake will likely have any impact on pricing as far as original games go. We've talked to several of the original owners, and they have all been super supportive of the project.

Why don’t you think the remakes will affect value of originals? Just curious as the CGC remakes had a very strong impact.

I think it's a different beast here. There were already thousands of MMr and AFMs out there. In this case there are only eight of the original prototype Kingpins. They will always continue to be Prototype games from Capcom.

That and the high end collectors that own them don't seem to care how much they are worth or that there will be a run of them at some point. At least three of the current owners love what we are doing, help us with our project, and have no intention of selling theirs. So while not all of the owners, I have a pretty good sample size so far, albeit not a random sampling.

While the current owners may not care and may have no intention to sell, when the game one day does leave their collection for whatever reason (death, divorce, etc) they will not be able to command the same price then post remake as could have been commanded before. The value will be different due to additional copies. Again, as you say, they may not care, but the remake will impact the market value of the prototype...doesn’t mean they will be fire sold now (or even sold at all now).
