A year since the last post?! No, no, no. Go rate this great game and let's get some chatter and pictures buzzing in this thread. Send in the clowns!

Has anybody bought or sold one of these lately? I have a nice example, but need to make room and this is one of the machines on the bubble.
I don't see anything on the current or archive sales on PinSide and the only thing on eBay was a bg that sold for 575 !
Thanks

Agent_Hero Your BG looks to be in very nice shape, especially for Circus. I agree with you this game is great! Fantastic art, great variety, challenging shots all on a super wide PF!! Yeah the sounds were 80's but I have to say I like the little Circus diddy it plays.

Last one I know of that sold went for $1,800.00 but it did not appear to have as nice of a BG as this.

It's pretty good--there's a bit of flaking around the clown's mouth that is under the player 4 score. Not much fade on the cabinet either, just a bit of patina here and there. I still enjoy it as a nice change of pace to the newer games I have. I put a powerball in it and that's fun for a bit, but I feel like I sacrifice a soft hit not registering on the vari-target once in a while that would be more likely to register with a standard pinball.

Since that picture was taken, I added the green plastic lane guide that is missing up top and swapped in all new drop targets since clown #3 bit the dust (pre-powerball insertion).

Here's a link to mine.

The boards were just reworked and gone through - so it's solid.
The bg had some touchup - from the back appears rough, but from the rough it's pretty nice. And it's stable.
They only made 2300, so hard to tell how many survived from that era. Plus, you don't see them often and even more rare to see for sale.
The people interested in this title is probably small, so hard to tell.
I think I'd ask at least 2k for mine.
I saw a BG that sold on eBay for almost $600 !
Plus I have the warranty paperwork - well, most of it anyway

I have that same package in mine, warranty and manual with a small intro print out.

Just picked one up over the weekend. The backglass is in great shape, but the coin door is rough. Anyone happen to have a door available?

Hey everyone! Just picked up a HUO Circus in St. Louis. Hasn’t been played in 36 years! It has minor battery damage. Other than that, it is amazing.
