Anything special about this one? I would assume so considering your asking price. Don’t these go for around $2600-2800 typically?

#3 1 year ago

You also have this game listed at $3500 on CL, so which price is it?

He has it listed as HUO which if true the last couple HUO/restored have sold in the $3500 range... but he will need more and better pictures. Condition is everything.

I want this take my hurricane somebody!!

Wouldn't the bolts in the front of the cabinet suggest otherwise?

Maybe, not sure how Sega did it. Many pins from that era included the security bar and bolts. His pictures kinda suck so I never even seen them. He's listed it at HUO but definitely needs better pics.

Later WPC games yes, but I've never heard of Segas with factory security bar holes. Plus the pricing sticker on the coin door would seem to suggest it was routed.

#9 1 year ago

Mine have these holes too.

Very nice machine, but I am having a tough time with the HUO moniker on this one. Coin door/frame tells a different story.

Addams Family came from the factory with pricing sticker on door (probably others as well) so who knows. Not sure how Sega did it... he simply needs better pictures.

I agree... but getting use to it. Been seeing a lot of machines in the marketplace listed as HUO and restored that aren't HUO or restored.

Many NIB SEGA machines came with that price sticker installed.

And a security bar, and a coin door pre-worn for your convenience? I think believing this one is HUO requires an awful lot of faith.

#14 1 year ago

It's a very nice Apollo 13. Probably has been home used for quite some time. Maybe not forever.

I think its a bit higher IRL. I bought one last year for $3200. Mine had full LEDs but I did have to do a tear down cleaning service right away. The channel below the rocket and behind the moon are impossible to clean without removing the whole back half of the play field. Same goes for replacing rear most left floor GI bulbs which appear to be out on this game. Checking those two areas tells you how recently the game got a full service.

I was looking on/off for a year before one came up so I couldn't be too picky about the price. Mine wasn't claiming to be HUO but I have the sticker and holes on the front. Never knew what those were for... lock bar; interesting.

The thing we really need to see is the inside lip of the blue ramp where the magnet hole is. The magnet can get stuck on and melt the moon and ramp which can cause problems for the ball getting stuck there. As I understand it these two things are irreplaceable. I had to service my moon magnet as soon as I got it. My fault for not testing before I bought.

No faith here. I had a HUO (documented) Goldeneye and it had the sticker. I sure as heck don't remember lock bar holes.

I had a nice HUO one that didn't have the bolt holes. I'll see if I can find a picture..
