Subject: DEPOSIT TAKEN: Lovely Afterburner
Date Posted: 04 Feb 2019 at 3:33pm
Edit: Saturday 17 Feb: Deposit taken.
Edit: Friday 16 Feb. Reduced to £850.

I have this coming in on the AC17 container which should be at Arcade Club in a few weeks.

Why the sale? I managed to locate a few personal grails for AC17 *after* committing to this Afterburner so I need to balance my books, which means this has to fall out the end of the bed. A shame for me because I love Afterburner... but the other stuff I love more.

These are Ken's original sales pics. Original AC17 thread here:

http://www.ukvac.com/forum/ac17-shipment-us-to-uk-299-full_topic366783.html" rel="nofollow - http://www.ukvac.com/forum/ac17-shipment-us-to-uk-299-full_topic366783.html

Asking £950. Covers me (well, sort of) for purchase price and import fees but with a chunk of change left over in the your favour, so you will be saving money over and above importing directly. Additionally, I will pay for a power conversion and a go-through by Andy's boys. So you will have a ready to go, super-tidy Afterburner to collect from Arcade Club whenever the work has been done.

For those who have an issue with such things, please note that this is not being flipped for profit.

If you missed out on it first time round, now's your chance.

Just a little thread bump ahead of the witching hour, which is when all of us make our very best arcade cab buying decisions. Maybe you've had a beer or two; maybe you caught the last half of Top Gun or Iron Eagle... maybe, just maybe, you need an Afterburner.

Little surprised myself to be honest. I thought it could be because potential buyers might want to inspect before committing, but then this is essentially the same deal as buying direct from Ken and importing with Andy... but slightly cheaper and with the power conversion thrown in for free to boot. Anyway, it's going back to 1K on Monday morning. I'd very much like to sell it, but I ain't desperate :)

ICYMI. Sunday afternoon bump. Reduced to £900. Back to 1K in the morning.

You are buying a fully sorted Afterburner (if for some reason it has stopped working in transit then Arcade Club will make it work, plus a power conversion, plus PAT testing, all on my dime).

Due in with Andy in a few weeks.

It does look lovely and I want one but the last one on here in great condition went for under 500 (sold to chopper) People here are gonna search the same as me and look to see what it last sold at. All of us will go higher by a bit as prices move on but 1k is more than double the last sale price. Might be worth you keeping it for a while? Sorry

Yup. All fair points. I am aware that this is a fair bit steeper than some of the others sold recently, but I'd counter that this is in much better cosmetic condition. That's a big factor for me personally when buying any cab... but perhaps not for others. I'm happy to take sensible offers and take a small hit on this in order to shore up other purchases... But yeah, may keep it otherwise. Definitely not on a mission to set the new market price, although these things really are variable dependent on many factors. I'll quit with the bumps for now :)

The downside of importing cabs that are not that rare in the uk is that once all the fees taxes power conversions have been sorted you are in for way over what they are actually worth in the uk when one does eventually come up for sale

As others have said if you have the space and dont need the cash i would just keep it

Its a strange one because theres times you dont see afterburner for ages and wanted ads are up its just lately loads popped up but its the same with outrun sometimes.. I think its a good price for a classic game especially when these type of games cant be played properly without the original cabs.
I bet soon as a find a paperboy a couple will pop up

Cheers Steven, appreciated. Me too mate, but then I would say that I suppose. I was happy to pay what I paid originally ($950, which is about £730 as of this minute) because it's a really tidy cab (fairly sure Ken sent me higher-res pics so will update the thread with those when I find them) and I do get why some folk take the "last one sold for..." line because it makes sense up to a point. I also get why people object to sellers wanting to get back what they put into a cab, regardless of deemed UK aggregate value... but we all know that these are ageing machines. One is not the same as the next.

The most I'll take a hit on is the import fee because I have plenty of other stuff heading to Andy, so fully prepared to say goodbye to that in the grander scheme of things. It all works out in the end. Not in this hobby to turn a profit, just sorting out the sock drawer, so to speak.

Wise Words. Far to many comments of why something is not worth
what the seller is asking.

If you don't want it don't buy it.

Seriously???  I personally think that's one of the things that make UKVAC better than KLOV, not having to open threads only to read a pointless GLWS post.  KLOV threads are replete with that, just read the PP FPGA thread, most of it is pointless wrt the topic.  People here generally post when they have something to add to a topic not just general flim flam to bump threads.   IMO this Afterburner isn't selling cos of the price and the fact it's not even on shore yet.   No amount of thread bumping is going to change that.  
 
This is jm2pw, may or may not be right and no offence is intended.

No???



You'll note that Ken's cabs are not usually on shore prior to purchase. This originally being one of his, you'll no doubt be able to follow my train of thought with this one. Please feel free to unwrap the "jm2pw" acronym for me I'll let you know whether I'm offended or not.

Edit: LMGTFM: Just My 2 Pennies Worth. Not remotely offended.

I recommend installing chris's freeplay enhanced roms. It probably won't help with sale, but they are a great addition to add, and it's another extra, to maybe help the sale along. Is the cab in your possession yet?

Something I’d do if it was staying with me.

The aim is to sell before it needs to be delivered to me from AC, at least saving me transportation fees. If it gets as far as my house then I’ll be holding it for a while and enjoying it :)
