Big Fighter NOS kit from 1989:

Is this worth a lot? Pretty crazy you can find 30-year-old NOS arcade kits today.

That's the third NOS Big Fighter I've seen on yahoo in 2 years.

Have you noticed the amount of relisted auctions recently? :think: even with winning bids.

Out of morbid curiosity, what did the last couple of Big Fighter kits sell for?

I can't remember, but I'm sure there are plenty of arses which we can pull figures from.

:lol: I think I have vague memories of someone over on Shmups paying a lot for one many moons ago. Although given how long ago that was, I guess the value could be anything now.

We really need a PCB inflation calculator :penser:

£X * years ^ hype

Excluding full boxed, mint kits and proto / matsuri stuff, I think cave / rizing / toaplan pcbs have or are very close their max. Any increases now will be incremental imo.

Mint complete kits, they could easily keep going up.

Seeing as I know nothing. Fully expect bare pcbs in the £3000 range this time 2020 :awe:

Yeah, I also think that we have seen the top, but I have been wrong on this topic before, several times.

If somebody told me a couple of years ago that I would have to shell out 1500 + euro for some games I would have laughed in their face =/

I fully expect prices to tank again, just as soon as I've 'finished' picking up most of the stuff that I want; just as I sold most of my collection the first time, right before all the prices went crazy.

I won't be selling again - but it feels somehow inevitable :lol:

I think our economy will tank and everyone else around the world will buy cheap PCBs from the UK.

Sadly, that's probably even more inevitable than my theory :(

Still, hopefully we can band together - and stop foreigners from taking our 'British' PCBs ;) Am I doing Brexit right? :lolno:

Yes, but you made need to fill in a form and pay a fee to nationalise your imported pcbs
