Hi all .Was it anyone on here that got the Elvis .I am interested to know if it was a genuine good buy or not .I contacted the guy selling but he knew nothing about it not even how to turn it on . Did it work? ahh i fancied it.Too far to go on a gamble and it was an auction.https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ELVIS-PR...563903?hash=item2654ecd2ff:g:5iMAAOSwAkpf-L-i
Good buy ? ......... Seller must be made up getting £4.4 k for a Elvis. Whoever bought it overpaid by £1.6k . Of course that's just my own take on what I think it's worth.

Definitely paying a premium for the theme but still not worth anything like £4.4 k. Would rather have a GB pro or GOTG for similar money. Nice BBH on fleabay- sensible price £2.5k , anyone’s on here?

To be honest i would like another STTNG but they seem to have gone crazy in price as well .Sold mine last year for 3.5k to the guy i bought it off . miss it.What is a reasonable price now do you think?

I don't think there is a reasonable price. They all seem to be insanely priced.

6k for an Elvis is definitely Emperors New Clothes money.

I think two ways to view, the new pro sterns are looking good value when you consider they come with 2 yrs gntee against 4- 6k. Elvis. 6.5k new stranger things pro. but its when you come to sell. Elvis may not lose any value where as stranger things will be last years pin worth 4k.Thats why i think the old pins keep climbing and will continue untill there are more second hand 4k tables around .My point being i suppose is as long as you can sell it for what you paid its not been a bad deal.

I wonder whether 99p ebay deals are behind seemingly mad prices like this.

If you have a couple of pinball mates with mature ebay accounts you just get them to shill bid. If they "win" the auction, a price point is created. The game is "resold" in a couple of months.

All of a sudden Elvis is the hottest property in Pinball. With big money deals as data points. Maybe someone gets suckered in at the end.

Spoofing/ liars poker type stuff.

I always list mine at 99p

Volcano went for £1170 and High Speed for £1650. In today's mad pricing I don't think they are particularly high.

They certainly weren't shilled

it was not a good buy at that price, until the king himself got his head out of the toilet and played a few games with you.

I had a quick message chat with the chap, I decided against it, in the end it looked nice enough but I felt it was a little fishy?
