Hi

This is my first post here, hoping this is the right place.

I love arcade-mashines, and even if I do not have the room for one right now I just could not help my self from buying a Old non working Astro Wars.
Have never seen one in person, but it does look really cool in pictures at least.

But could someone please let me know whats a resonable price for a non working Astor Wars, all the guts is still there, and its i fair condition as far as I can tell from the pictures.

Nice !

Zaccs are cool,

I think its an OK price, i mean, its +-125 euros, so i think its not bad if complete.

also you can be Lucky to find one cheaper, but i still think thats a nice price.

Sorry, my text might have been a little bit confusing so I changed it.

I just want to know a reasonable price for a ASTRO Wars non working arcade.

What Etienne said.

To make a better quote we need pics from outside and inside. Is the monitor OK or does it need a fix, recap or even replacement. Condition of the panel and the artwork, etc.


So 125 is the asked price for it?

i still think a non worker if complete is worth the 100 pounds.

but indeed to be sure, we need pics and know how is the condition.

Ok, so the price was 350   shock

And no, the monitor is not working.




I just think this is an awesome looking arcade cabinet, but wow is the price point so off?

Well, still nothing to feel bad about. The cab's in good condition and a monitor as well as a PCB can be repaired Smiley

I just thought that was a pretty good price... I feel a bit stupid now, and to make it even worse the shipping (from England to Sweden) would cost me almost as much as the Arcade.

a Picture from inside would be great.

It seems to be orginal from outside.

the bezel is ok, even the CP is not drilled with new holes.

I would say 200 - 250 is fair, if it is original inside.

If you like the game the Price is not the Problem.#

Don't. It's worth what it's worth TO YOU!  You will forget about the money once it's running at your place Smiley

i.E. I wouldn't pay 200 for a Nintendo Donkey Kong (simply not my cup of tee), others pay 1000....see what I mean Wink


When will you get it?
