Each to their own.

If it is a truely H.U.O example then personally with the condition it is in I
would spend the extra cash. Looks quite the example and by the look of the
orginal plastic bag the manual etc was contained in from factory, it could well be
a H.U.O

I'm confused, what is wrong with the auction? :confused: The machine looks awesome, is it only the price that is causing grief? :unsure

If it is HUO and only one owner, and is in the condition stated, then currently not a bad price..IMO!!

They don't come up often, especially a really good one, so best of luck to whoever gets it....wish I had the cash lying around!!!

Yes

Not mine,and mine did not come from him.

Going on his auction,mine would be worth maybe $10g:lol
It is an HUO machine that was won from brand new in a pinball comp in NZ,then sat in the guys loungeroom for years untill i got it.Have all papers to account for it.
Now thats HUO:cool:

Still, if it really is in great nick, and some pedantic dude is really after one in great nick, then it's probably a fine price. Same as for when Finny's MB went for a mint: if it's worth the premium to someone in order to have one THAT GOOD, then good on em.

Don't know what all the fuss is about- Hell I bought a TZ for 1800 3 mths ago to see why this is #1??.It needs cosmetic work and has electronic issues but for the the price I'll have a go. Played another AA members' TZ a few times but didn't have a clue what it's all about until I've now got this poor thing up and running. I'm starting to learn it warts and all.I've got big plans for this Baby.

Just put TZ's a notch up in price

I wouldn't look too much into it Mr T in my opinion.:cool:

Every single machine this seller has put on ebay has ALWAYS gone for well above market value for some unknown reason. ;)

A previous self described "average condition" TZ for 5100
The self described average condition TAF which just finished for 5317
Now this supposed "Collectors Condition" "Mostly" HUO TZ with a semi faded cab, rusty legs and rusty lockdown bar for 7000.

The final prices achieved just don't accurately reflect the conditions of each.
