:FOUND: Where are all the Sega GODZILLA at?

Postby Drano » Thu Mar 23, 2017 11:24 am

This is really NOT a WTB thread.... well, it sort of is, but not an immediate or pressing one.

I've slowly and steadily made my way through a lot of machines. I've certainly ticked off most games on my wish list over the years. Just in the last couple of months I think I've 'killed' another 5 or so. If I had to guess, I'd say at least 80 titles have passed through my hands. I admit... I've been a bit crazy and relentless at times. Other times it's just been fate or blind luck or karma.

I'm now at a point where I have more games than I want or need, so I am slowly working through them, playing them more and starting to slowly decide which ones to keep and what to let go. However, even n the middle of all this there is one last game on that list that has eluded me. And, while other machines will surely still come and go as opportunities and tastes fluctuate, I would still really love to find that big green Sega GODZILLA that has been sitting on my WTB list for so long.

I was first turned onto it by Adam years ago and have played it sporadically at shows... but I would really love to find one to play at home and get a better feel for the game. Don't know if it'll be a keeper, but gotta find out.

They are notoriously hard to find up here, but they always seem to pop up at shows in the US. I always seem to be just a few minutes too late or a few bucks too short when those have popped up... but I am always keeping an open eye.

So, just curious where all the GODZILLA are at? I know there's one in Keswick and at least a couple more in the Ottawa area... but who else is holding one of these babies (and how can I become your new best friend)? :D

Yes and 3 of the 4 came from Allentown and the other one came from the Ohio pinball show. I was present when all the buyers made the purchases.

I think Dr Who is harder to find (for sale) and they made tons of those. But if you want to buy one, I know a guy that might have one for sale.

What was the production run of Godzilla anyway?

Dr Who seems low for the time. I must have had half of them LOL.

Godzilla on the other hand, if they only made 510, it is impressive that there are that many in Ottawa alone!

Never hurts to ask...
If you know of one for sale, I'd love to look at it.

I think rarity of machines is greatly affected by geography. Dr. WHO may seem hard to find in one area while I know of about 4 within spitting distance.

And, while 500 or so unit of Godzilla seems real low, I don't think those numbers are confirmed and they pop up in the US fairly often.

So, I'm definitely converting this to a WTB thread.
I got to play the game at a recent event and I now know enough to know I want to spend more time on this machine.

I currently have some interesting trade possibilities or I can convert those into cash if a sale is preferred.

Any/all leads are appreciated

Nah... they are not impossible to find. Seems that they just seem to be more concentrated in certain regions vs. others.
I don't know if I buy into the 510 units listed on Pinside. IPDB refuses to state production units; likely because they are unconfirmed. It's common for some manufacturers not to disclose their production numbers.

There are machines I've hunted that are WAY more difficult to locate. It's generally not a stupid expensive machine either... probably due to it being a Sega ;)

Anyway, thank you. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Yeah, IPDB is very conservative on production numbers, unless they can confirm the accuracy of the source (typically direct from manufacturer's paper-work). Pinside, on the other hand, will quote a number that someone found stuck under a seat in a movie-theatre.

I know it's an older thread... but I guess i can finally put it to rest.

This arrived a couple of days ago!
One of the last few titles on my short list.
