super rare
only one known to exist
alive and well in the vast Peck collection in Long Beach.
Bally's EM Star Trek variant prior to solid state SuperSonic version.
Played it and liked it a lot.

Quoted from Darcy:

Quoted from Mopar:
Over 20
Over 20, easily. Less than 40 very possibly.
On Pinside there are 13 accounted for, now those are from Pinsiders willing to list their game. The IPSNDB has 2 in the USA and 2 in France.

I feel fairly confident that there are >40 Star Jets still in existence.
I would be willing to bet there might be >100.
No way to prove that though.
Just hope those still intact, remain restoreable come another 50 yrs from now.

Quoted from Mopar:

How about this U.S. version. Over 20, under 20?

I have never come across a Hyde Park in the wild myself, (at shows or online for sale etc),
not that i had been looking hard, but feel that pin is truly much rarer than say Star Jet

Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

Spectra IV is a rare one too. If anyone's ever coming up from Mississippi/Louisiana to NY let me know 'cause there's one I can buy... but can't go transport and the seller won't work with a shipping company.
Spectra IV and Rotation VIII, the rotating cocktails are obscenely rare and the boards are unobtainium. The guy who specialized in repairing them doesn't do it anymore.
They play like trash, but the novelty is where their appeal lies. The oddity of them is why I want one so bad.

I bought a NIB Spectra IV about 12-15 yrs ago, ($400)
it was part of a warehouse stash (in Orange Co. Calif),
they had about 8-10 of them all still in the box,
but unfortunately most all had the MPU boards damaged
with battery acid leaks destroying parts of the traces,
as this pin design had the board sets that are stacked together
and the NiCad batteries had long ago leaked.
Game kinda booted but never was able to get it to play really.
Playfield was mint.
Used it as my kitchen table for years.
Now in the hands of the Pacific Pinball Museum.
