    Default WTB Sankyo Thunder Dragon

    I know a guy that has one in Texas; he’s probably not letting it go. Unless you offer some 1950’s single shot in exchange… or offer more than market value ($100)

    I’ve got the newest Thunderdragon Z cell for my Sankyo and it is a fun one! Not for sale though.

    I recommend it, the animatronic Godzilla imitator is pretty cool!

    Hello and thank you both. I have included a pic I found on Google from an old auction as was suggested. I would be looking to buy, but I do have a few vintage 1974-76 pachinkos I might trade as well. A perfect solution would be within a half day of Chicago to avoid shipping. Thank you for your assistance.

    Well I managed to find one. What do you guys think of the $600.00 price on this one? Thank you for your input.

    Price is hard. Depends on how bad you want a specific model. Its age is really against it. It might be worth doing older searches and try to see what others have sold for in the past. will give a good idea of how many there are out there. But for a generic model of that age. I would have thought $100 ( But then again, I'm in the UK so the market is completely different)

    I'd agree with the $100 range but again it comes down to what someone wants and is willing to pay for it. I've bought a couple of this style last year for $75-$125 in Michigan.

    Ouch, $600 for that machine, $100 seems fair, if you really want it that bad offer $200, that would be most I would pay, you need to research newer machine, that are really worth $600, and to be honest, if you like the machine, you will buy more, and you might as well start with a machine that does lots more then this one

    Maybe send him an email through his site to see what he is willing to take for it? The seller is a member here although he hasn't been very active in recent years.

    It has the factory sankyo original key perfect for someone who wants to fit this in a beautiful cabinet, I have a kingsand from the 80s coming from Japan to sit next to it so I’ll post a photo of them together soon

    I would like thank everyone for their input. I have decided to walk away from the $600.00 unit. I am now out looking at recent modern machines.

    mordern pachinko.com is based out of chicago area, maybe you can get your price range without having to have it shipped, also, you will be much happier with a newer machine, they do so much more
