First time buyers are always looking for a DMD era game under 2000 and fail largely because they might not have access to enough games.
So what games do you think fall into this category?
I vote Breakshot
Quoted from locksmith:
Cueball Wizard.Just sold a nice one for $1,400
I'm gonna punch the next motherf--- that says "YOU SHORE CUD EWS DAT RAMP SHAWT" square in the face.
Who the hell is selling LAH's under 2k, and how do I contact them? :p
This threads are always entertaining, if you find a DMD pin that isn't completely trashed for less than 2K buy it. This is not going to be an easy thing to find.
This is getting to be a very short list these days. You are mostly limited to some of the least popular segas like space jam and the premier stuff. Frankly most of these games are pretty bad.
As others have said might want to up the budget to 2500 or so will open up a lot
Quoted from Chitownpinball:
LOL WHAT. You cant touch these at 2k or less around here...
Not quite under $2k, but I bought one a few weeks ago through Pinside for $2100, which was its median sale price here at the time. That was his listed price as well...no haggling.
Great game. I love it so far.
BEST... I would say Breakshot!
Possibly these if you can track em down for 2K these days:
Jackbot (probably stretching it here)
High Roller Casino
Strikes n' Spares
There are probably 20 some odd DMD pins your can buy for 2K or less but those are some of the better ones.
I get the allure of the dmd, but with the short list of DMD titles under $2k nowadays and how many better Alphanumeric titles exist compared to that DMD list, I’d sacrifice the nice display and side with a better playing game (if you can’t bump the budget a bit).
Not possible around here. Seems everybody wants 2k+. That IS the line around here, 2500 gets you into good games.
These are always stupid debates. Different parts of the country are less saturated than others, so your last action hero may cost $2500 where you are, but we buy them in the North East for 2k all day.
Across the board, Maverick is the best game available everywhere currently under 2k, its an excellent game.
For 2k or less, I would take a hard look at system 11s. There are a shit ton of system 11s that are a blast to play.....
Also, they have some great artwork
The ironic part about this thread is that it will increase the price of any DMD pins that WERE under $2k before this thread was started. They will now be over $2k due to high demand.
I missed a LAH for 1700 this last week here in Florida . The guy was awesome, He got it for 1700 and sold it for that even though it may now be 2k or more.. Hats off to him and the guy who got it. I am sure he won't pass it along for 1700.
But it isn't any of my business or concern until I would like one to own myself , lol
Unfortunately not many dmd pins worth getting for under 2k anymore...at least in any type of decent condition. Now 2500-3500 u can get some really good games in good condition imo.
I got mine for 2100 about year ago (first pin), but they seem to have gone up a bit since then. I love mine. The call outs are amazing, and the game is really fun. Will never sell it. It's like that first girlffriend, you will always love her no matter what.
