Mpu board likely toast so an altek required. Hard to tell from the pics what state the pf and backglass are in but I can see a snapped rubber so probably not looked after well when it was last used. I wouldn't want to pay more than £800 for it and it's already past that so another project game that'll go for silly money.

Approx £200 for an Altek MPU board shipped from Sean, say around £150 for all the other sundries to get it shopped out (I'm not including new drop targets, bumper caps etc in this) . I'd say that's best case scenario as some of other boards might be knackered and this completely ignores cosmetic condition and your time to do the work :thumbs: If you get it for a grand (I think it's going to go for over that tbh) then say you'd be into it for somewhere in the £1300 to £1400 region. If the playfield, backglass and plastics are good then you've probably come out about on the money, maybe even a little under what you could sell it for. If any of those are knackered and you want to replace them then likely not as then you'd also start adding in new drops etc. For me, condition of the playfield especially will determine how much I want to put into a game.

I doubt you'd be massively over anyway and it depends how bad you want an EBD and how long you think you'd keep it. If it's a forever game (or at least long term) then could be worth it but for me having owned one before, I'd be looking at doing it up to sell it on so £700 would be the price I'd want to pay :)

£450 for a lethal weapon, sounds about right to me.

Whoever signed that, if indeed it was Elton, has no respect for the game of pinball.
Whoever indeed! Brought it from Elton’s own private collection and then just popped it into dry storage. And he’s now selling it for 10/11k no way he brought anything from Elton for less than 10k especially a pin, there’s people out there that pay more than 10k for a scarf he’s owned or worn one time at an event and then it’s auctioned off.

Looks like l made a typo on the post here. Like gottliebs it seems not a lot of love for system 11 games. The new display cost relative to perceieved value is very high on sys 11 especially when you can put a pin2dmd in a 4k machine for less. The main issue with bg seems to be its too tall
