    Default $100 finders fee for help locating a Monster Castle

    Hi all,

    It's been several years since I've posted looking for a Monster Castle pachinko. Still looking...

    I'm now offering up a $100 finders fee for any info that leads to me purchasing one. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Thank you very much for that link, but it appears that even when you change the language to English, not all of the page changes. Perhaps these are the important bits needed to order?? I can't fugure out how to add it to my cart or anything else. Maybe it's not actually in stock...

    So, unless someone who can decipher Japanese can help me order, I think this may be a dead end.

    I kept on tapping other things that were only shown in Japanese, and this led me to a page that was translated...and sure enough it is not actually in stock. I knew it wouldn't be this simple. Haha. Please keep the help coming so I can finally bring one of these home. Thanks!

    Thats odd. I didn’t display out of stock when I viewed it. Anyhow, any purchase like this would have to be done through a deputy service. And the FEDEX shipping costs are huge.

    Yeah, I figured it would be pretty expensive, but I'm used to shipping pinball machines, so I would've ponied up had it been available.

    Anyway, they sent me an email saying that I will be contacted if it ends up in stock again. Fingers crossed that one pops up somehow, eventually.

    JT Comatz has a shipping via FedEx special for just $450 this month. Looks like shipping prices are finally starting to come down a bit.

    I’m using them as my 3rd party bidder too for yahoo auctions; since they ship via slow boat in the group shipments too; cheap!

    12 years old makes that machine hard to find. What about a Mini mini monster 3?

    Pretty similar and newer (2016)

    I guess I'd have to see a video of that machine in action before I could make a decision on it.

    And yes, I realize it's older and therefore harder to find, but I'm used to that. I've found plenty of insanely rare games before, especially in the pinball world, so I won't give up. I'm not afraid to ship around the globe or pay a very fair price. It's just a matter of someone speaking up or letting theirs go. I do know where one is already, but the owner isn't ever selling, so no point in even making an offer.

    Thanks for that link. It looks like a cool game. I'd definitely consider it if one came up for sale...along with that Friday the 13th that was also in that clip.

    It is up for sale… by the vendor JT Comatz. It’s posted on the “pachinko and pachislot collection world wide” Facebook Group as in stock now!

    They have 518 pachinkos in stock right now

    Ask for Karen, and tell them their best client Austin sent you! if you buy it quickly air shipping via FedEx is only $450 which is a steal these days…

    Thanks for the heads-up. Do they have a site other than Facebook for those of us that don't do that sort of thing?

    Default Re: $250 finder's fee for help locating a Monster Castle

    I know the biggest issue with finding one of these is the age of it, but in case it helps encourage someone to help me hunt, I just figured I'd up the finder's fee to $250.

    Thanks for any help!

    When you reach out to JT Comatz, be sure to ask them about Monster Castle as well! They were able to track down a Ghost in the Shell for me, even though it wasn't listed as inventory at the time.

    Hi Chris,

    Yes, I did ask them to locate one for me. Fingers crossed that they do. I'm glad to hear that they came through for you! Congrats!
