£2200 + 10% buyer's premium.
If you think about it, it would have been impossible to place the payout mechanism on the left because the coins that feed the hopper arrive from the middle of the right hand playfield.
The ball, by the way, is automatically released when you win on the first game. I would have taken a picture of the mechanism but my camera let me down yesterday.

Seems the Trickler didn't make the normal price I have seen these sell for.
1400 plus still sounds cheap.
Anyone take any pics of the inside of the dodgy Rockets?

Wow, sooo many machines and all I could do was walk away with the usual common bandits and probably too high a price as well.....The two machine I had my eye on were the "nixie" special bandit that reached for the skys in price terms and the Bryans Hidden Treasures, which maybe I should have pushed that one more bid. Someone mentioned to me they were the bandit of the Bryans world and I guess that is true, maybe that is why I like them.

There were some cheaper machines there though, with the holiday weekend, less people and so many machines they did not reach the crazy levels of the last auction, but were more realistic and very few bargains... At least I got to play a few of the rarer Bryans machines and I have to say the Rockets is not the most interesting amusement machine to play, not far from a Rippler with a ball launch. The Satellite was fun though. !!THUMBSX2!!

Here is the Rockets in action. My first play. I was expecting the handle to be spring loaded not just a flappy bit of metal.....



Here is a video of the Double Decker:

It proved to me at least, that auctions are unpredictable, and that it is very hard to put a value on a machine or "what it is worth". A machine is worth what someone will pay on the day. It is also based on supply and demand. Bryans prices seemed erratic, to me the Trickler seemed cheap, others were about right. The 3 ball seven win seemed cheap, given a previous one made £2600.
I thought it was a great selection of machines, the best for some time, and was well attended given the date.

It was nice to see "old" friends (not friends who were old), and make some new ones. I enjoyed speaking to the lady who was the proud new owner of the 1930s Payramid, even though I forgot to ask her name!
The Rockets mech looked to be original to me. I think that the ease of winning on the Rockets was its downfall, and hence few were made.

I too thought the Satellite was fun ;-)
