I paid much less than that for a fully working one last year so it does seem overpriced as it needs work. However it does have a spare PCB.

Great game though and now one of my favourite cabs.

Cheers

Sheesh.

We can’t mention his name here but Mr lilley kindly picked up a Paperboy monitor for me from him.

He is also skilled with rebuilding monitor HV circuits using biro pens.

I offered £400 and got an automatic reply from eBay offer was too low.
That’s about the right money for a non working Caberet in my opinion.
Fully working maybe £700/800.
Always looking for a bargain.

Hi I would agree. Fully working £800 - £900. One of the more popular cabarets.

Hahah - oh man.

Well he did link to a video showing the cab working, but quite how that translates to "I know nothing about these machines" I don't know. 1200 quid is mad money.

I know the guy has a certain reputation. But I bought my Cosmic Guerilla from him couple years back and my interaction with him was just fine.

It sold for £1001 and some pennies. Tis a popular and great game. Maybe a little high price now but in a year or two who’s to say £1000 will have been a good price.

Doesn't surprise me. Nice sought after cab in what looks like all original condition. 
It's only original once.

Half cabinets? The screen is the same size as a full cabinet.

3,924 Centipede cabarets were produced.

Yes £1K plus is expensive...

Come on Steve, you wanted more than that for a Defender shell which needed repainting and stencilling.

It is a £1000 cab to the right person. Centipedes are now in high demand compared to a few years back and cabarets are highly desirable.

1000 and pennies is toppy to be sure, possibly a big gamble, but it was worth it to me because I've been looking for freaking goddamn ages (by my standards) and it will look cosy in my Atari lineup. It it turns into a money pit I'll let you all know and you can say you told me so or something. TT is gonna message me and tell me I'm nuts, and I'll agree with him but only because he's slightly taller than me in heels.
