    Ok, we all know you ain’t getting a JD, but what can you get? If you had $1,400 for a pinball related purchase, how would you spend it in this market?

    I know we take the marketplace listings with a lot of salt, but they suggest with a pin you’d have a choice between some well known and cared for EMs, or an old SS that could be parted out. What’s your $1,400 grail?

    Maybe it’s better spent on a reproduction PF and BG for your next project?

    Or do you go with the glitzy topper for your new Stern?

    Was looking seriously at a Time Zone AND Card Whiz for less than that in partial trade for my flash Gordon.

    $1400 will get you a working early Solid State 3 hours before closing at a pinball show.

    Or if you have a multimorphic you can buy a couple of nice new games.

    This if I have to get it today.

    Ugly, but one of the earliest games I consider good that's not an EM.

    One of my em games.

    At the last Winston Salem NC Auction:

    1200 F14 Tomcat (problems)
    1200 Secret Service (players grade)
    1100 Penant Fever Pitch & Bat

    The other twenty pinballs sold for more than $1400 each.

    And all three of these had problems...

    Nowadays people probably want that much for a project that doesn’t work.

    #13 1 year ago

    Time Warp comes to mind.

    #14 1 year ago

    Laser Cue or Flash. Both great games. Both can still be found around this price.

    Duh, it’s Judge Dredd, now tell me what I’ve won…

    #16 1 year ago

    Man, nothing good.

    #17 1 year ago

    Judge Dredd, folks.

    Time Machine should also be a $1400 game, folks.

    Yup. Sold my fully working one with a half decent PF, and a few minor upgrades last month for $1600 in the northeast. Arguably the best bang for the buck at that time. When I dropped the price to $1600 my inbox was flooded. But one a few steps down would be ~$1400.

    #22 1 year ago

    F-14 Tomcat

    #23 1 year ago

    Volcano
    Mr mrs Pac-Man
    Space shuttle

    #24 1 year ago

    Can we include projects?

    Comet, Space Shuttle, Firepower, other sys 6/7 Williams and early Bally SS games.

    Such an underrated game. I find the layout amazing with the varied shots. I like it better than even HS, which I’m lookin for.

    But PinBot is on your list to get.

    A 1400 pinbot would be a wreck. I would LOVE to get my hands on a really nice pinbot for 1400.

    #28 1 year ago

    Comet?

    #29 1 year ago

    Interflip Dragon.

    Might be tough find at that price, but all I've got to say about that is "BAO"!
