Clearly I'm much too high on mighty pang and puzz loop, but I don't see them being sold regularly so imho there is a certain element of perceived scarcity outside of japan. In my experience the price you can buy something for in yen before shipping and customs does not equal value in-hand in europe. ;)

Be honest and take loads of photos (much like selling on here!) As it's a cab, you need to make sure the buyer knows that they have to pickup as there will be no delivery. If there are any imperfections, take photos of those and give good descriptions about the issues you've had with the monitor. The monitor pretty much makes the cab - if it's in poor condition/on it's way out, that's pretty much 1/2 to 2/3 of the value.

What would you say a realistic price to ask would be?

you are going to take a hit without getting the monitor looked at. I can't even take a guess at what someone will be willing to pay. Have you contacted Craig (giz10p) to see what an estimated repair would cost?

Bought these games last year for: gigawing with mobo 90 EUR, mighty pang with mobo 50 EUR.
well my man you got a barg considering mb only normally fetch £30ish
Andrrreas wrote:Sophia currently says:
Mighty Pang (cartridge) JPY 3,150

Thats about 30 EUR (and 30 EUR value is no custom)

Ive seen this game even cheaper but cant understand it though, thinks its one of the best arcadegames out there!

Also, this game was sold without a label so only custom labels available.
but by the time you ship you are looking at 50-60 quid at least.

I reckon a fair price is around £50 for this super :awe: :awe: game

Afaik X-Men COTA around £30, mobo around £30. £50 + shipping might be a better valuation, but you can't sell something without a buyer regardless of the price! 8-)

I'd also not underestimate the laziness of buyers, if it's not priced in their currency with an obvious total cost to their door...

I'm not long after selling a PCB with art for £25 shipped, so I'd say £40-£50 shipped is reasonable.
