Rough estimate on Scared Stiff please - usual cab fading with some flaking around flipper buttons. Also some of the usual wear on the "Terrifying" by The Crate on the playfield. Other than that though, everything works with no issues. Thanks!

William's Indiana Jones valuation

Been stored for a while
Not much fade to the cab
Playfield good but need a shop
Battery damage to cpu so would need replacing

I’ve been offered this and asked been asked to make an offer on it But unfortunately it is way out of my expertise not that I have much of that anyway but here goes

it’s a 1989 Gottlieb Night Moves cocktail Pinball table

from googling it seems quite rare and I’m told all it needs is an opto but until I can see it switched on I will take that with a pinch of salt and assume its a lot more.
all the plastics look intact with no obvious damage that I can see and from video looks quite a funky little thing that would make a nice conversation centrepiece.

any experts that can give some idea great fully accepted.

With the wear on the playfield and the fact that its not working i wouldn't go mad. These games were rare because they didn't really sell. They are heavy and hard to move and take more space than 1 pin. A cool thing to have though. If i had known we would eventually find a site for a club i would deffo have kept mine.

Thanks guys sounds a lot of hassle so I’ll not bother, I was kinda gonna offer £200 but I’m thinking even at that it would be a labour of love and I’ve got too many of those jobs on ATM anyway. Thanks again.
I’ll tell him to chuck it on eBay for his best chance of a sale

I have 2 and enjoy this game, it's something very different. I found it easy enough to work on and it's built like a tank. Agree with others the wear and unknown if working the price can vary, I paid approx £250 for each of one, albeit that was 7/8 years ago and has on wear, for me couple of hundred if not fully working, 250 to 300 if working, his better option is eBay, some idiot will over pay. Does have opto's for the trough.

I’ll close this discussion with the guys reply to the advice given here as he seems to think he is sitting on a hidden treasure but that’s the way anyone not in the know would assume I guess.
His reply and I quote

“Hi. This seems to conflict with Liberty Games who are selling a reconditioned night moves for 5450 and coinopking who are selling an unrestored machine for 1495. But asking is not selling and I’m inclined to agree with you - this is not a friendly open machine

Thanks for all your efforts”

he is a nice guy and has a great love of pinball so don’t be harsh.

If he now has a totally unrealistic value expectation thanks to Liberty Games - tell him to stick it on ebay for auction, or gumtree and invite bids.

He will soon learn that dead Gottliebs are not great sellers.

how much would a Magic Castle (Zac) be worth these days ? All there, neon still works etc. backglass missing a few bits where the neon has hit it

Also have a Vector that is worn down to the wood over a couple of inlanes.
Will hopefully get a few pics up over the weekend

Both got as part of other deals so overpaid really

A vector sold for £600 just a few weeks ago. A really nice one actually with only a few niggles.
One that is worn down, probably £400-450?
Probably worth just keeping it.
Unless you want to sell it to me for £350 😁

Sorry it was £550 it sold for. Was gutted I didn't get it as my wife was due to go into labour so didn't think it was the right time 😂
