There's a very nice Fish Tales on Ebay!

This one?



Yeah, no topper, and the cabinet has been redecalled. This could hide a multitude of sins, and to be honest i prefer faded original over badly applied decals (i used to be the opposite, but not now). Playfield has some wear, but i've seen much worse. I'd say it's about £800-1200 too much.

This one was a much better deal: https://www.pinballinfo.com/community/threads/fish-tales.49999/

FWIW, I got mine off eBay, which is totally out of character for me, then I pointed the seller towards this 'ere forum. He's still here, and since spunked a good wedge of cash on even shinier games!

I hadn't looked at it like that. I'm probably in the same boat, I don't think I mind a bit of cab wear and tear. It's the playfield that matters most. To be fair most pins on ebay are overpriced 😔

I was tempted by the FT on here recently but I won't have the room for a few months at least, house renovation is slower than I expected 🤔 my own laziness...
In the mean time my pinfund continues to grow. I am dreading when I have to make a decision 😂


Nice to hear a success story of getting someone from Ebay here, hopefully they stick around and keep pins in the community 😊

Did speak with the fella selling Thr 3200 ft on eBay awhile back but would prefer a clean original with not much fade.

I got my FT off eBay over 10 years ago, I stripped it and took the cab to Manny who did his magic = my cash disappearing😂 Was worth it😎

FT is such a great game, yeah you will get bored of it but give it time and it’s great again.

@The seeker - Hope you find a nice one.

I've just bought the FT that came up a month ago from Sgt Grizz. I used to own one, but sold it back in 2017 when I needed to sell a few machines. It really is a fun game with a super catchy tune

You need to watch the habit of serially owning Fish Tales. Though you've a good way to go to catch up with 'Wez'.
