So black hole was one of the first games I noticed when I got into the hobby a few years ago since it was a system 80 like my first pin James Bond. Tried to deal for a few over the last two years with no luck. Started reading the owners club thread on here again last night and after checking Craigslist with no luck decided to give good old ebay a shot. To my surprise a reasonably priced one appeared, located 7.5 hours away which in my stupidity seems reasonable and it ended today.
Pics and description were lacking. Mostly that no pics of game turned on and missing spinning disk from backglass. Decided to message seller and the couple was nice enough to video call me to give me a tour of the game. Turns out all displays work and they have the spinning disk I got to see it all. Game isn't 100% obviously but not many 33 year old games are.
Sum the story up I bid on it and won for $405....making the drive to pick it up Tuesday morning. Looking forward to having another system 80 especially the black hole. Depending on how well she cleans up I may just upgrade to the pascal board system and delay my next color DMD purchase. Only have a screen grab of the ebay photos for now but will update the thread as I make my trip through the night and into Tuesday morning. Considering going the extra 1.5 hours north from the games location to check out Niagra Falls while I'm that close since I've never been there either.
