Item description

(summary: The machine works well and don't forget it can also make you your money back when it is set to require quarters. Used sparingly, all original parts and all major pieces are in almost perfect shape. I have detailed videos of everything about the machine in a google folder that I'll happily share with serious buyers if you provide me with your email.)

My parents bought this machine from another private owner in 1998 and it's been lightly used by the family since. There were many years where it was only used a couple times. It needs some repairs to be perfect. I don't know much about pinball machines, but this is my best effort to list what needs repairs: Cosmetically it is in good shape, but over the years it has acquired minor issues. Sun fading of side decal on one side. The other side used to be against the wall and is in better shape. There are 3 small parts where the plastic chipped. They do not affect game play, are very minor and are difficult to notice. In fact I commonly see these pieces chipped similarly on other Bad Cats machines. The rubber bands need to be replaced throughout the machine; the lock on the door needs a part but i have the key and main part of the lock (so I have the lock and key, I just need one of the universal parts that screws this into place); in the past, if bumped too hard it turned off, but only sometimes (kept my guests from bumping it out of frustration) **it has been a while since this has occurred. In fact I think it may be fixed since I gave it new batteries a week ago; there are probably a few fuses out but I don't know, nothing noticeable. Ive seen refurbished bad cats machines where the lighting and color are often different from the original. This machine is all original from when I got it in 1998, but I can't tell if there were any parts replace by the original homeowner so I doubt it.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I'm as transparent as I can possibly be.

Ummmmm, your description is terrible.



This game is not either of those. Not even close. That quarter has had that slot used more than a hooker in amsterdam

#3 10 months ago

Not even imamaculate...

#5 10 months ago

Your about $1,250 to high, your batteries most likely look like cauliflower and have damaged you board. Love when people say FIRM.

#6 10 months ago

E-bay pricing...yow! Good luck with that.

#7 10 months ago

You can go look through the forum for past sales

Since you are new, I can summarize that you are likely at least $1500 too high on your asking price.

#8 10 months ago

Wasn't this up at $1750 a couple of weeks ago??? then to Mr. Pinball at 3.5k?

Let me be the first so say

It looks imamaculate....

#9 10 months ago

Looks nice. How many plays would you say it's had over the past 12 years?

#10 10 months ago

Yeah, list at 2K and go from there. The OP probably doesn't realize that when selling a machine on this site, you can always go up. LOL

--I see below that they DID REALIZE that... crazy.

#11 10 months ago

Dis gon b gud.

#12 10 months ago

I am in the Dallas area and if you wanted someone who knows a bit more about pinball to help you out. I would be more than happy to stop by and look it over for you. No charge, just to help you understand a little more about the market and possible issues with the machine. That way you can write a more accurate description when selling. Let me know.

#13 10 months ago

Yeah go to the archive and check out this one:


#14 10 months ago

Whoa, if at first you don't succeed, almost double the price?

I sense a badge to make an appearance here.

#16 10 months ago

Lol! “There are probably a couple of fuses out but nothing noticeable.” smh

#17 10 months ago

Somebody better grab it before it reaches $4,000 lol.

#18 10 months ago

Baywatch thread ... Coming soon!
He didn't say it was immaculate!
Or we be at 1500 posts by now!

#19 10 months ago

I wonder if OP has copyrighted his avatar image as well? Either way, thehuemanatee is gonna have to crank up his creative skills to work on this one.

#20 10 months ago

License and registration, please...

#21 10 months ago

It doesn't sell at 1800 and now you want 3500? This is a hobbyist site, please take your trash ethics and garbage pricing somewhere else.

#22 10 months ago

it must have a coin box filled with quarters

#23 10 months ago

lol, id give ya $1200 on a good day!

#24 10 months ago
Quoted from PinsideTroll:

it must have a coin box filled with quarters

And pre 1964 for added value!!

#25 10 months ago

I passed on a nicer one than this for $1900. It’s just a dog of a game.

Meow meow-meow meow!

#26 10 months ago
Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

lol, id give ya $1200 on a good day!

Lol. I know he is way overpriced but I sold one with an absolute beat playfield for $1600 in about an hour earlier in the year. $1200 is a Craigslist gem or a pipe dream price at this point. $1800-2000 would be a legit starting point. Cabinet decals are available

#27 10 months ago
Quoted from DerekNemo:

and based on the value of it when mint, and the rarity of this machine, I'm confident this is a fair price

Oh.... is that how we price things these days? I have a game that when mint is worth $3000 but since mine needs $1000 in work to get it to be mint, it's worth $4000 ($3000+$1000 repairs).

hint.... that should be a minus sign... not a plus sign.

#28 10 months ago

You wouldn't happen to have a brother selling a Baywatch would you?

#29 10 months ago

He did make a donation to try to sell this on here. I will give him that.

#30 10 months ago

Looks like "There were many years where it was only used a couple times" is the new "600 plays in 12 years".

#31 10 months ago

I think the OP is having a little fun with all y'all.

#32 10 months ago

Don't let the fact it's on the second floor of an apartment distract you from this ridiculously great offer.

#33 10 months ago

Is this a joke? This has to be a joke.

#34 10 months ago

1850, 3250, now to 3500? huh?

#35 10 months ago

#37 10 months ago

Firm is the stupidest price. I can’t believe how many say firm and it rarely sells at that price. I like to price in a little wiggle room with obo.

Likely this is worth less not to mean worthless.

#38 10 months ago

Note to the OP: Just place some Supreme stickers on it to justify your price.

#39 10 months ago

Jez I’m sorry I sold my LotR for $5800 when I see all these asking prices it should have been $8800

#40 10 months ago

LOL at Rai's post. I love Mitch Hedberg.

#41 10 months ago

Op's pricing guide be like

#42 10 months ago

Per the OP when I tried to tell him the price is insane: "Like I said earlier, I posted it for 1800 and got 12 responses in about 5 hours. A few frantically trying to give me their money they wanted it so bad. You're underestimating the rarity of this machine. Now that I replaced those batteries its working great, and in pretty good condition with all original parts"

Oh gees, here we go again, RARE.

Yea, ones priced this HIGH are RARE.

#45 10 months ago

Wow, quite a few of these RARE pins recently in the marketplace...

Took me a good 45 minutes yesterday trying to figure out the origins of the alien head. The gifs are AMAZINGLY funny. I was cracking up at work.

And then, the lawsuit thing. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only pinside...
