I picked this up for $40 at a thrift store. I cleaned it up a little, and hooked up a 9 volt to it. Everything works on it. It has all of the original balls, which have a little logo on them. Its a pretty cool old game. Not sure how old this thing is?

    It looks like a mid 70's model.There are forums on the internet that can help you date it from the small stickers on the bottom of the play area.The price you paid is pretty much dead on as far as value goes.Nice machine!

    I saw that exact same model game at a flea market west of Chicago this summer. The lady that owned it wanted $75 for it but it didn't sell. The item had a lot of interest though.

    Nick, I hooked all of mine to a power pack, makes it easier don't have to replace batteries all the time. I have some of mine listed in S&T. Dave

    I made a bottom rail out of (2) 1 x 6 boards in a "L" shape, and another for top, bolted bottom on wall then the top one. Slid in game a used small finishing nails to mount it to boards. And you can open door and have a small space for ball container to sit. Dave

    That is a very nice looking machine. I did a little work on one for my Aunt and Uncle, but they would not sell it... Kind of wish I had one, but not willing to pay not much more then you did, even if requires some restoration. There are tons of these machines in the USA that were and still being imported from Japan. These Pachinko machines are a lot of fun to play! Enjoy!

    I have the 2002 Spiderman with LCD screen. It is a Riot! Hard to get these days. When they came over with the newer ones you could get them fairly cheap! Now depending on the Characters price is going up as people are wanting to collect them.

    Hey you can find out the year by looking at the stickers on the lower right corner of the play area. There should be a number from like the 40's to 50's, then a Japanese symbol, then a single digit number. The number in the 40's or 50's is the Imperial year, then add 1925 to that number, then subtract 1 and you'll have the year of manufacture. If you machine is in playable condition, then you paid pretty much what it's worth, but you'll probably have grandkids like mine who love it and it's cheaper than a babysitter!! Keep in mind these machines may need TLC as they age, so watch the kids! Enjoy your machine!!
