Generally speaking, I'd say a fully working classic 1989 Konami cabinet is worth between around $1000 and $1500.

Nice thanks... Now, I must find a way to spend 1500$ without my wife noticing.

Prices have been climbing too.

Aside from turtles collectors, it`s one of the best and most remembered 90s games.

I collect arcade and pinball machines and more people who grew up in 90s arcades have been getting into the hobby, so while traditionally there was more demand for the classic 80s stuff, the newer 90s jamma machines are growing in demand.

Hey Funky,

I know this is a very late reply but I picked up my Konami 4 player cabinet maybe about 4 years ago, from a seller on kijiji (but in the Toronto area) for a little under $500 delivered.

There are deals out there on this machine, I have seen them go anywhere between $500 and $1000 in this area pending condition.

Mine had a few scuffs on the side art, but everything works 100% and the only thing I would consider replacing is the control deck artwork overlay, as it is torn and has some cigarette burns on it.

I should also mention that when I bought mine, it came with the original "instructions" as well as replacement coin slot decals.

The machine is only worth what you are willing to pay so if you can track one down for a reasonable price you can always do minor repairs yourself and if the artwork is F'd there are places you can buy replacements.

Bonne chance. :tgrin:
