Attack From Mars that needs lots of love. Boots up fine, plays. Inserts have serious clearcoat wear issues, hole is gaping, cab is faded. Answers to "Lucky."

On the plus side, comes with a manual! And it's an AFM.

Original intention was to patch this up as a player but someone else here may want to do better things with it.

Game is located in NYC zip 10001, shipping is possible via NAVL.

Have space issues so not interested in 2 for 1 trades but 1 for 1 or 1 + cash may be possible.

It's not the pride of the fleet but it's still an AFM so any proposed trades keep in the WPC universe please.

Best Honest FS thread in a long time. Good luck with sale. Love my AFM.

I'd give you $500 for it - that pin is a stone cold mess.

#4 5 years ago

Nah, it will sell. I would offer up my TSPP for it but it's just too far and I don't ship.

Love my Afm great game good luck with the sale !!!

Quoted from tpn2011:

Everyone loves AFM. I Love AFM.

But who could love this AFM? It's own mother? Even she turned her back on this ugly duckling. It has endured many long nights at the pinball orphanage, weeping itself to sleep every night, shunned by even the rusty old No Fear in a Giligan's Island cab in the corner.

It's a sad tale, but one that may yet have a happy ending, for a buyer with the determination to take this base game and bring it to fully restored heights, and for a seller who wants nothing more than a whole lot of cash.

Maybe it's the cold medicine talking, but the anticipation is taking me to strange, dizzying places.

I'm tempted but it needs everything, including a coin door. She lived a full life for sure.

Now that's completely unfair. What's wrong with the coin door that some paint couldn't fix?

And the Launch Button looks fine to me.

Does it come with some lobster?

On the bright side, I have played a similar looking machine like this on route and it actually played very well.

Edit: never mind. Not worth it.

Wonder if this was at a pool? Looks like in addition to the fade that type of insert damage had to be from the sun. It's a good base game though. For someone wanting a full restore (new playfield, decals, parts, etc.) their might need to be a little wiggle room price wise in this market, but if you just scraped and put down some laser cut insert decals and patched the scoop hole and did a "lite restore" could have a decent player's game under $5500k. Buddy's AFM sold at auction in Winston last month for $6800. It was BEAUTIFUL, no fade, new micro playfield, ship mod, full LEDs.

Not to be that guy, but paint wont cover up the fact the door is rusted and would need to be totally stripped and refinished, Also there appears to be A LOT of rust in the stroke of luck VUK. Also the fact it is garage kept next to a 'rusty' No Fear and the potential for under lying problems is there. Shots of the inside of the cabinet may help your cause.

I'd buy it, but I'm out of town this weekend.

That was a joke.

It wasn't ACTUALLY in a pinball orphanage where it cried nightly.

Pinball machines can't cry.

I don't actually know anything about the history of this game - emotional or otherwise - except that it's fresh off route, and that's the only thing fresh about it.

I decided to check out someone else's basement. I'm just screwing with Levi, because he made a BS bid on one of my games once.

This AFM's worst days were still miles head of any NF or GI's best days.....in SPADES.

I'd trade you a super nice NGG for it if you can deliver to Az.

I'll consider it.

Love your humor man. Its refreshing to see someone take a joke on here and not blow a gasket.

#23 5 years ago

Right now it's a two-way race between $500 stone cold mess philly guy and drive-it-to-Arizona dude.

I'll keep you all posted!

#25 5 years ago

PM sent

#27 5 years ago

Sure, but only if you do the driving and throw in a $25 regal cinema gift card.

#28 5 years ago

It will sell........

#29 5 years ago

Decal Inserts -100 dls
Cabinet decals -275
Cliffy protector set-150
Powder coat rails and legs and coin door - 250

Total of $ 925 plus 5000 afm machine , it will be a $ 5925 attack from mars machine but it will be gorgeous ...
To bad I have one already or else I would jump all over it right away ......

Good luck with the sale .....this one wont need luck it will sell right away ...

#30 5 years ago

This would look rad next to my Starship Troopers in the arcade coming here.
Both have some "total annihilation" 'd inserts, which I don't really mind as a players game.

This machine needs a lot more than you have listed above. The inserts are not going to be fixed for $100. And with this many cosmetic and rust issues, there will be other issues to work through.

not everyone! I don't like AFM at all!! But good luck with your sale!!

#35 5 years ago

Are you going to chi expo?

#36 5 years ago

Sorry no go expo. This gotta be picked up by NAVL or in big apple.

And to guy who says he doesn't like Afm: nobody believes you. Everyone loves Afm.

#37 5 years ago

Thanks for all the kind offers and advice. I've received a sizeable deposit and this game is sold.

We laughed, we cried, and most importantly, I think we all learned a lot about ourselves. All in all, we made this the best for sale thread it could be.

#38 5 years ago

I think I can beat both offers from this thread - $550 and you only have to drive it to Kansas City.

Game should be bought as a core game for a full blown restoration. And it's priced accordingly.

And sold.

We would have loved to have had you out here in the wonderful AZ.... Congrats on your sale.

Did I see a termite in the cabinet?

No that was just a bedbug.

#43 5 years ago

Great community here! Happy to be a part of it.

#44 5 years ago

Martians attacked this machine, and won.. that is all..

Glad it sold, and hope it gets restored, I am sure it will beautiful, and it is an AWESOME game and deserves it!

#45 5 years ago

It does deserve it. The kind of attention this one needs simply isn't my forte. I'm bummed that I won't get to play this as it's one of my favorites.

I'm not bummed that I will have the space to set up the beautiful Theater of Magic I've acquired.

#46 5 years ago

It looks like my AFM's long lost brother. My inserts are chewed up just as bad. Perfect core game for a resto.

#47 5 years ago
Quoted from patrickvc:

Are you playing the game with the inserts like that, or is this game folded up?

#48 5 years ago

Man, $5k? I wouldn't say this this until now, but seemed overpriced for its condition in the current climate. I know AFM still holds people's attention, but I wonder what it goes for if AFMr is made/priced at $6k.

Then again, I doubt it sold for $5k.

The "current climate" is indeed rough man.

When it takes 28 hours to sell a game that you've basically advertised and marketed as a piece of crap that needs a total resto, you know things are bad.

I was about to drive the damn thing to Arizona or trade it straight up for a faded JM.

The pinball market is collapsing before our eyes. I just turned down a $900 Creature because there's a scrape on the babe's nipple on the translite.
