    Default My first machine new sea story

    sea story machine.jpg
    This is the first machine I have obtained and I still have it today. I am kinda wondering what it can be priced at today cuz I got it from some dude on craigslist for cheap. Wondering if it holds mor evalue for actual collectors and hobbyists? Idon't know a ton about this specific model and any research i try to do comes up with other models instead. Any help will be appreciated!

    Everyone should own a sea story at least once.

    Value is always hard. For machine terms. It'd pretty basic. But it's theme is family friendly. Depends if you want to ship it or local pick up only. Also depends on how many balls it comes with.
    Pricing in the UK is a lot different to there. So I'll let others do that.

    Yeah Sea Story is super recognizeable in the pachi world. I would probably do local pick up on this and wasn't gonna ask for a TON. idk exactly how many balls I have but i know it is definitely over 500 or so. Wheni got it it already had a CR emulator and a transformer for american outlet usage luckily. only thing it sadly did not come with was a door key, kitted out for US usage but noo key, imagine that huh? XD

    I'm always buying keys. As most of my machines didn't come with one.

    Iíd say itís worth around $150-200, if it works 100% not a rare machine at all, one of the most common actually. Most people would probably get a newer one for a bit more since they have come a long way the past 10-15 years.

    I have that model! A bit smaller than your though!

    funny enough $200 was the highest i was gonna set for it! it works perfectly and just needs a little cleaning is all. One of my co-workers expressed interest in buying it or maybe telling his dad about it for him to buy it as a neat little mancave thing. If I can get it sold then i am going to get a more modern machine for sure. Either monster hunter 4 since I am a massive monster hunter fan or something that is decently priced on a-pachinko on their $555 super sale.

    I like those tiny pachinko models you have! so detailed. and I was actually gonna initially set my price at $200 for it so that works out in my book. Gonna try to sell it for that so i can finally have room for a newer model machine. Was looking at either the Monster Hunter 4 machine or something else that i would like.

    I believe your first 10 posts most be approved by an admin to show up immediately. To weed out the riff-raff from misuse or bots. But after your ďprobationary periodĒ they will post immediately.

    Just donít anger the admins during your probationary period and youíll be just fine!

    Ah I see understandable. Well I feel I have a price that is not only fair for me but also would be buyers for my machine. Then I gotta figur eout what newer machine I wanna get and from where to buy it for best deal.

    Iíll bet you could get more than $200 on eBay if willing to ship; but thatís kind of a pain. Packing materials are expensive too to pack a pachinko right.

    JT Comatz has the best prices and selection in my experience, especially with the group shipments to Charlotte lately.

    I have 2 more machines from them coming later this month; and 4 more in the upcoming 8th shipment so Iím in the same boat as you trying to clear out space!

    yeah for sure, they were on my radar and leaning towards them or a-pachinko as a-pachinko shipping is getting pretty low now and they always have the $555 machines rotating their stock frequently.

    That was during their Black Friday sale, they still have a few in that price range though I think. I bought one on sale for $199. They primarily post them on FB North American pachinko club and Pachinko and pachislot collection worldwide groups. Or Aki has posts on the thread I made in the vendors section for them
