    $400 for a Zizzle + 75 shipping

    Quoted from FunriseGuy:

    $400 for a Zizzle + 75 shipping

    I sold one on eBay for the same price a few months ago. That's a popular little pin actually.

    #3 3 years ago

    In my area, you could get one of those off my local CL for $30-$40 several times over. They seem to pop up and get re-listed all the time.

    #4 3 years ago

    My 2yr old loves his POTC zizzle. I added a starpost with couple rubbers on it as a center post. Games actually pretty tough with the non responsive flippers. Games coded better then alot of older games with 5 modes and wizard modes. Not worth more then $40 though

    We all make mistakes in life-

    #6 3 years ago

    I paid $100 for a pirates upgraded flipper arcade buttons and added toys and such.My three grandsons play the shit out of it,until they come see papaw Rick.Than they play the shit out of mine

    #7 3 years ago

    I sold one 6 months ago for $300cdn. But considering any EM game goes for close to a grand around here, it might not be that bad of a price for a starter pin

    #8 3 years ago

    Ironically, most pinball people will gladly pay $40 for a piece of plastic, or $100 for a lighted toy car to add to their games.
    Considering what people pay for pinball mods and toppers -> the Zizzle is a bargain at $400.

    #9 3 years ago

    $400 is nuts, but I'd probably buy one for the $100-$150 they went for new (I think) if they were still being made...

    Hoping to buy one of Ben Heck's project mini-pin kits if/when they go on sale, if not way overpriced. Hopefully way better than any Zizzle.

    #10 3 years ago

    Yet another from same seller. Probably got them at a big box store clearance price years ago and now are making a killing. More power to them and I don't begrudge anyone from making a good profit. I'd like to find one to go along with my Saitek but I heed the advice from many others here that $100 is max, especially for a G1 model.

    I wish! They pop up on Craigslist in Denver now and again but generally in the $150-$200 range. Not worth that but if I saw one for $75 I'd jump on it and my 3 and 5 year olds would have a new machine in their bedroom.

    #12 3 years ago

    $400?!? I gave away a Pirates one to some little kid.

    #13 3 years ago

    Wow. Had no idea. I've got a modded one that plays fantastic I would easily sell for that. I have it in my wife's 4th grade classroom. The kids play it for recess on rainy days.

    #14 3 years ago

    Awesome 85vett. Great way to keep them occupied when they can't go out and at the same time bringing up another generation to appreciate the game.

    #15 3 years ago

    At the closing with S&H $505 dollars for a Zizzle. Unbelievable.

    #16 3 years ago

    I overpaid $100 for a Pirates and then gave it to a charity auction.

    #17 3 years ago

    $400 seems like a lot for a Zizzle.

    But I'm sure some people who'd pay that would also think $5000-8000 for a fullsize machine is ridiculous...

    #18 3 years ago

    I should buy those craigslist specials and toss em up on ebay...

    #19 3 years ago

    I had something similar to a Zizzle as a kid back in the late 80's and loved it. I have no idea who made it and only remember it being a space theme. I'm pretty sure it had a few pop bumpers and a decent amount of lights.

    It's went for $225 in the auction.

    #23 3 years ago

    Seriously..... what do these actually sell for used 100/125?

    #24 3 years ago

    Crazy ..... the last six on eBay sold from 350 to 550. Is there really a demand for these. I know where I can pick up one

    Do you think that the pinball uninformed crowd sometimes mistake it for a full size pinball? Even when the ads say it’s a 3/4 size machine it might be hard to know the true extent of a sizzle unless you had a basic working knowledge of pinball.

    #31 2 years ago

    When my fever was first starting I bought one off CL for $20. I gave it away a few months later...

    #32 2 years ago

    Well If anyone has one my kids are in the market. Let me know.

    Here is another crazy Zizzle auction! What idiot would pay $1100 or MORE for a plastic toy?

    67 bids, 1 day left and already at over $1,000 plus $150 shipping!

    ebay.com link

    #35 7 days ago

    I would love to see the look on the winner's face when he first plays it, LOL...

    Whoa! This thing has real flipper buttons! LOL...

    If you are looking for a boring stock machine...look elsewhere. This baby has been upgraded with the best of features. List of upgrades:
    1. Replaced solenoid buttons with real pinball/arcade buttons so you get the best feedback when you hit those flippers!
    2. Replaced boring stickers with custom marvel stickers
    3. Replaced apron with custom marvel infinity war to cover new flipper buttons
    4. Custom red paint job on the ramp
    5. Added figures all around and a very cool Thor's hammer over one ramp!

    Everything works perfectly. Plunger, flippers, buttons, all lights, sounds, scoreboard, everything!!!

    This is the one-of-a-kind unit everyone wishes they had but are too afraid to mod themselves. I did the work, you have all the fun!

    Comes from a smoke free home

    Ships to the US. If local pickup you will get $150 cash handed to you upon pickup.

    Because dupes think it's a real pinball machine. I think well-intentioned Moms and Grandmas are prime to fall for it. Shady sellers are exploiting this.

    I sent him an eBay message and asked him “is that an ultra rare Wilco Big Top in the background?”

    Here was his response. (I am still laughing out loud!)

    Here is what happens.

    Guy wants a pinball machine

    Guy realizes pinball machines are fucking insanely expensive, 3-10k.

    Guy sees a zizzle, he’s a noob so he can’t really see the difference between it and a real machine.

    He thinks, we’ll this thing LOOKS pretty cool and is only 1k as opposed to 3-10k

    Guy buys zizzle

    You’re bad! This reminds me of the dude with the POS Superman listed for like 5k. We all watched the auction and it had over 100 watchers, f’in funny!! Then we all unwatched RIGHT AT THE LAST 5 MINUTES.

    When I was new, Zizzle’s crossed my mind in about 4 seconds while I was typing it into YouTube and waiting for the video to load. In that time I was immediately turned off when realized it was some junky plastic toy.

    Maybe some folks can find enjoyment out of them, but it’s only the real deal for this guy! Most pinheads graduate rapidly to the real McCoy

    #42 7 days ago

    It’s at $1200 with only 12 hours to go. Get your bid in on this rare machine!!! LOL

    I bought one years ago on CL for $20. It was when I first had pinball fever but didn't own any yet. I had about $30 worth of fun playing it and questioning if it was worth modding. Then realized that was a stupid idea and it had really been like $10 worth of fun. I gave it to a friend with little kids when I got my first real pin.

    #45 7 days ago

    I bought one for $80CAN, that's like $5 US I think.
    Sold it a long time ago for around the same.

    I am starting to think this can’t be real! It’s going to go for $1500 at this rate. I sold a really nice Game Show for $1500 recently.

    It just got relisted. Per seller:

    "Relisted due to buyer bidding "by accident.". Please don't bid if you don't know what this machine is. If you have questions, Google it. If you have specific questions, email me. I want to get this sold and out of my house so feel free to make offers based on what the bids were when it sold and maybe we get a deal done quickly!"
