    Default Battle of Vader cell

    Figured I post this since these don’t come up for sale that often anymore. And quite a popular theme here in the US. Happy Easter!

    25,000 YEN! Yikes I didn't realize they were that rare. Thanks for posting the link though. Would definitely be on my wishlist if more comparable to similar era cells.

    I wouldn’t necessarily call it “rare”; Frank at Clover imported over 100 of them a few years back; so there’s over 100 here in the US. So it’s a decidedly common machine for a pachinko.

    I’d say it’s just popular and availability has dropped since it’s been out of the parlors for a couple years and the price reflects that. I paid $300 for my cell from Frank back then if my memory serves; no shipping cost though because I picked it up in person along with Ranma 1/2

    Pachinkos are kinda like cars; very expensive when new, then depreciation hits hard 1-3 years later; then a select few “classics” start to rise in value when they aren’t readily available on the secondhand market anymore. (Arrepachis, arrangeballs, popular themed games) these are akin to sports cars/muscle cars people couldn’t afford when new, now their “rare” and everyone that wanted on back then now desires them driving up values. My 2 cents

    Although it says the LCD is good, there is no mention about anything else and buyer beware, especially as the status of the clickers is unknown.

    as Google translate says

    It becomes a second-hand machine removed from the hall. A series of operations of the initial workpiece movable body at power on
    It has been confirmed until the liquid crystal lighting, the start and the digital rotation.

    to be read as,
    the screen comes on and other things move.
    when ball in start pocket, the reels spin.

    Sadly, Monterey is a 45 hour drive from my place!
    I have been there years ago though. Monterey Bay Aquarium is the best dang aquarium I've ever seen.

    Yepper . My shipping days are about over

    Because I do not Trust anyone but myself to Pack and Ship the machine but then the torture begins for me as it is being ship to the next owner as shipping Companies employees like to see if they can break what is inside Especially if the box is heavy .
