Hi there, I am hoping to canvass this groups help in getting an Asteroid Annie And the Aliens (Sys 80 Gottlieb) to an owner in Canada that would appreciate it for what it is: a very rare (~200 produced) machine with amazing artwork and simple but fun play: it kind of reminds me of a more modern Strange World (EM Gottlieb).
I drove in winter crap conditions 1000 kms to get this: it did not power on and had no backglass (orig was smashed during a previous move). Some of you might have seen the ad. I'm surprised one of you in northern AB didnt pick it up.
Anyhow, I bought a repro backglass (BG Resto), and a new Pascal all in 1 board, and repinned all molex connectors. It works flawlessly now and glows like only incandescant beauty can. The cabinet has some minor dings etc, its not pristine, but it is a very very good example and the playfield is 10/10! It wasn't used much and I think it was because of the on-board battery (leaked) and not savvy previous owner(s)? I have an original Gottlieb manual for it also.
Do you know someone with a collection and would be seeking a rare machine? Im not seeking top dollar but I would like to get fair value for it - whatever that is? What would be fair market value? Terribly subjective question I know, but to start with I was hoping $3500 Can. Your constructive advice is appreciated. Feel free to PM with any interest.
Hope all is well with you, cheers.
