Well, that's the beauty of capitalism. To quote my dear deceased father, "It only takes one buyer".

But 15k come on it's only a pro, maybe 5-6k

I had a game for sale once. Was told for the condition of playfield and cabinet game was was to much. It was to much for that person. Had 3 full offers and they pay shipping. Game sold

Seller is betting on a MJ fan who knows nothing about pinball.

Good luck to the seller and may the new owner find much bliss through thier own ignorance.

As long as all those mods are reversible, I would say that game is worth a thousand less then it would be if it was not modified at all. Otherwise it needs to be parted out.

And I just rethemed a premium onto a Walking Dead Simpsons.

So a translite, Pinsound and some dolls glued to the game + and extra $10,000 above average??
To be far though, I'm sure some die hard MJ fan that likes pinball might give about half the asking price.

Walking dead Simpsons, I love it!

Yeah I got a chuckle out of the Simpsons version. That is kind of cool. The MJ ones make me taste puke in the back of my mouth just looking at them.

#17 3 months ago

Yeah i sold the MJ one 3 years ago. Way before the HBO documentary.
It just had MJ as the Well Walker zombie. Had Cleland sound mod but with Thriller song play during Well Walker Multi-ball and Beat-IT during Prison multi-ball. Was fun.

The Simpson one is way better! Cleland made a custom sound package for me. All with Simpson call outs and custom music. The best call out/ saying is during the skill shot!
Bart says, “Dad you shot zombie Flanders!”
Homer replies, “Flanders was a zombie?!”

That Zombie Simpson's topper is fantastic.

Did you purchase it or make it yourself?

FWIW, the subject example used to be on location in Boston and it looked good in person and was a blast to play.

I custom made the zombie Simpson topper. Homer’s left eye falling out is a cotton ball stretched out. Then i over sprayed a can of spray adhesive over everything to get a bubble slimy effect. Was more Dramatic before it dried. Lol

Walking Dead Simpsons is brilliant! Stern should seriously consider doing a Treehouse of Horror Simpsons game.

This is a video of my TWD Simpsons. Has the older Cleland sound mod on it. Was about 60% done with Simpsons call outs/music.

#27 3 months ago

Notice the LED T-Molding mod. Lights up when a ramp shot is made and both light up when the Prison doors open. Its a cool interactive mod!

Cool video of the game. But the "brick shots per minute" is off the charts! LOL

I love the "and probably more stuff" at the end. If there were more, it would most certainly be mentioned, therefore it's only a worthless filler-phrase to make it sound better than it really is. Im really annoyed by such wording.

This is fantastic! I love the callouts.
