Not going to create Wayback URLs for them, but the same seller took these games out of storage: Millpede (1100), Star Castle (1250), Space Invaders (950), Sea Wolf (950), Gorf (1100), Stun Runner (1100), Xybots (1100), Scramble (1100), Zaxxon (1100), Battlezone (1300). Biggest listing by one dude I can remember in some time.

I know right?! For fucking Scramble! Close to 1000$ for a Star Castle isn't too bad considering it is a rare vector graphics game IF the vector monitor and overlay are in great shape. I would maybe give 400 tops for a good Scramble whereas I'd give 550 for a good Gorf. Gorf has a lot of boards lol

Ah yeah I should have known with that wood grain. That would be a damn shame though. Frogger isn't one of my favorite games by far but that machine wasn't really meant to be converted into anything else.

Man, pinball prices just keep climbing! Looking more and more doubtful every day that I will own a Funhouse or Fathom one day.

750$ for Shinobi is batshit insane. 350$ tops. Personally I would not give more than about 220.

I have owned 3 Shinobi cabinets in my life and didn't pay $750 combined. I probably didn't pay $350 combined, haha.

Right! I was thinking about all the Shinobis you owned. I almost got one for free a few years ago from a college but it was grabbed before I replied the ad.

I'm seeing that the other arcade enthusiasts here are thinking the price on Shinobi is a bit extra. Noted!

I don't know what good prices are anymore. I was watching D's online Facebook auction last night and a Missile Command PCB "that works, but is missing a couple of chips" sold for $200. Two non-working Pac-Man PCBs went for $160.

I'm not sure exactly how works but missing a couple of chips actually.. works but ok lol

Non-working Pac-Man PCBs are great for learning PCB work on and perhaps at least one of those could be restored.. but you could just buy a working Pac-Man PCB for 100-120$

A lot of games went up this last week. I'm going to try to save these links as moments in time. August 2020, the day the games arrived.

(Retro, is there a Chrome/Firefox plug in to do one-click saves in the Wayback Machine?)

Die Hard Arcade. Asking price: $900
https://web.archive.org/web/20200811123 ... 75515.html

Ms. Pac-Man. Asking price: $950. Saw this in person, it is nice.
https://web.archive.org/web/20200811123 ... 80385.html

Pac-Man. Asking price: $650. Saw this in person, was tempted, but I'd have to stencil it because if I ever go the Pac route I'd want it to look that way. (I may one day go the cabaret route for Pac-Man.)
https://web.archive.org/web/20200811123 ... 80525.html

Mappy cocktail. Asking price: $1499.
https://web.archive.org/web/20200811124 ... 81837.html

Two Asteroids cabinets are up, one in Englewood for $1100... this other one is not Asteroids, it is AD. $650 asking price in Brighton. Galaxian in Brighton with new monitor (asking price $700) and then a second Pac-Man for $650.

900$ for Die Hard?! That game isn't even all that great! Just play it on Sega Saturn lol

950 for a good standup ms pac.. at least 350$ too high

650$ Ratty Pac-Man. Nope. More like 300$

Don't really know anything about Mappy

Galaxian for 700$ is kinda reasonable if you really like the game.

$1800 ask for Satan's Hollow

I owned that machine and sold it to the person that listed it there. I sold it for much, much less than $300. Sigh. :(

Max I would pay for one of these is 600-800.. fun game I play at my friend's house but not worth 1800$ to own IMO
