    I'm putting my HUO Tommy up for sale. I really love this unique pin, but I'm out of room and I have the opportunity to buy a HUO NGG (a pin that has been on my wish list as long as any other pin).

    I bought this Tommy from a fellow Pinsider (Bill) at a very reasonable price of $2,850.00. I've put some LEDs in many of the inserts, as well as a couple of Ultra Brights to light up the plane. I'm going to ask the same price that I paid for this at $2,850.00.

    The pin is in excellent condition to say the least.

    Pics will be posted later today.

    How much later...Does it have the topper? That might be a dumb question but I don't know so I am asking.

    Yes, it has the upgraded silver ball topper.

    I don't care what anybody says, that's a very fair price for a HUO Tommy in excellent condition. Mine isn't even HUO, and I wouldn't sell it for that cheap. Tommy is my second favorite game after TZ. It's quite challenging to say the least. Considering how much pins go for in CA, someone should grab this while they have the chance. Good luck with the sale, Rob!

    Thanks Gweempose. I believe that I can get more money for this pin that what I'm asking, but since I got it from a fellow Pinsider at a reasonable price I thought I'd keep it in the family so to speak. I sure wasn't going to turn around and try to sell it here for more than I paid for it, especially in such a short period of time.

    The timing on this HUO NGG kind of stinks because I really would like to hang on to Tommy longer, but I'm out of space and my kids prefer RS over Tommy, and I can't let a HUO NGG slip through my fingers.

    I would say for being CA its a good price. I sold mine in the midwest for 2k even back in december. My topper was messed up, translite was damaged, but the cab and pf were nice.

    Was yours HUO? That's what makes this one a good deal.

    Play it, read some reviews, decide for yourself NewPinOwner.

    I wouldn't say it has a huge demand, but it's personally one of my top 10 pins of all time

    If he was anywhere near me, I'd be going to get it right now..

    it's fun. has great music. I would love one. 3k+ is out of my affordable range unfortunately. If my pin coffers were full though. i would definitely jump on this one.

    It is a clone of Funhouse. They made a few changes after the prototype which made the game a hell of a lot harder. Right orbit is too tight and requires a perfect shot to get around the loop. It does have good modes, an excellent skilshot, very nice dots on the dmd, the blinders are ingenuious. The only thing that sucks is the video mode. All in all it is a very hard game with a good theme and that is why people like it.

    Gotcha. I have heard of this pin time and time again, and I don't have any experience with it yet. Prolly be waiting for local pin parties or national pin get-togethers before i see one. Was just curious what all the hoo-lah was about :P. Thank you!

    I completely agree with all of this. That right orbit shot is really tight. I can definitely hit it, but it sure as hell isn't an orbit shot that you are going to keep looping the ball around! The left orbit, on the other hand, I can get going pretty good.

    I'm happy to say that I was able to get to Pinball Wizard mode once!

    Love the EM type sounds, tons of modes, and the music is very well integrated into the game play. Despite the fact that it is a very challenging pin, my wife loves it and is none to happy that I am giving it up in favor of "that gofer one"! lol

    We shall see! But NGG has been on my wish list for a *long* time.

    By the way, you should check out my comments on your RS in the current For Sale thread for a RS.

    Just like RS! Honestly Chad, I thought I'd made a big mistake a few days after I bought your RS. Now I'm loving it. I can't begin to tell you how huge of a turnaround I've done on that title!

    Grats on the sale, you will love NGG, the first few games are brutal but it get's very rewarding quick. The hole in one is a shot that just never gets old. The gophers talking smack, music, multiball light shows and the classic Whirlwind spinning disc make this game one of the most under rated titles I have ever encountered. It is like Whirlwind and MM blended together with a touch of crack mixed in, simply love it!!

    How this machine stays under the radar is simply baffling. This is also one of the very few games where I never shoot for the skill shot, damm you Plaw!!!

    I have a Tommy I'm thinking of selling in similar condition. Can't say that's it HUO for sure, but definately looks like it. It has just gone through a complete tear down and shop job. Every bulb replaced, all new rubber, new bulbs, pincab protectors, cliffy protectors installed, (just trying to find small blinders armature part to make 100%), triple waxed. Plays fast and mean. Has original mirror ball topper also! Considering selling for $2,500 and may be willing to entertain trades possibly....looking for Getaway HS2, BOP, FH among others - clean fully working machines only. I'm in Tampa, FL. Thanks, Shawn

    My apologies....but does it really matter??? Game has been sold by seller that posted and it seemed like there was several interested in a Tommy. I thought I'd put another option out there since it was sold (and very similar). I wouldn't have posted in his thread if machine wasn't gone already!

    I'm guessing a lot of times a lurker will PM the seller and then the seller will share the pics directly with them without ever having to post them publicly.

    Congrats on the sale, Rob! I had a ton of fun playing NGG at MGC. A great game for sure!
