I will have this lineup when my Spirit is shipped from Europe.

Will be a great lineup to play and have competitions on.

Seems like there are more of this title in Europe than in the us. The game is super hard to find in the us.

Apparently there's a european glut of Spirits. They should ship some back to the US.

I think that is were most of the ones in the US came from. I wonder what happened with that game for so many going to Europe compared to here. Perhaps here we just destroyed them all (darn Chucky Cheese and that policy...).

Hey, more off-topic conversation for Spirit. Anyone know the recommended playfield angle? I've set mine to about as high as I could get it and get a reading of about 6.6 degrees on the PF. Seems to play great for me, but I'm interested to know if it was intended otherwise.

Thanks,

Brian

From what I understand, Spirit was built for export only - which is why they are hard to find in the US. Mine and many others I've seen are stamped with this

They weren't all export only, some were sold here. Mine didn't have the Mondial lock down bar or the transformer that can be converted to 220 because it never left the USA. 4 out of 7 Spirit's at the 2014 PAGG show weren't export games.

A local one here in Cincy was NOT a reimport either. Domestic games do exist.

Good luck in your hunt for a spirit. Next time consider including a price you would be willing to pay, sometime that helps shake something lose (I just scored a Quicksilver that way).

Yup, put a price in the txt part. Otherwise people will not take you seriously. I would expect to pay more than 7K for a Spirit these days. If you're hoping to get one for less you will be disappointed.

#66 4 years ago

been a good conversation though learned alot. Thanks everyone for helping as best you can.

That's a nice looking game and they don't pop up very often. However, just because there's a high price on it, that doesn't mean they're worth that much. It may mean that the owner doesn't really want to sell it and is just testing the waters. That game looks like one that was worked over by thierryv (in this thread) he's the only one I know that uses stickers to do the art on the cabinet.

Quoted from dementedwarlok:

well i guess 6,000 is a good deal

$14,000!!!!!!

Anyone who pays that much for a Spirit...well...they got some serious cash to burn.

#70 4 years ago

I've seriously been thinking about putting mine up for sale to fund a NIB purchase. I didn't know what to ask for it but now I do...$13,999 what a deal!
