For sale: Big Bang Bar

Added: March 27th, 2017 Ended: April 21st, 2017
Condition: HUO - Documented (Home Used Only)

Item description

This is a game that I wanted to own for a little bit of my pinball journey and have really enjoyed getting to experience it. I am the third owner of this game and I'm linking the previous for sale thread for it. The game has been setting in my game room since purchase and has been waxed and cleaned as needed. Yes it has been played, that's what its for. I added LED's, an LEDOCD board, and a dartz protector.

The bad. The game has some leg wrinkle on the decals from were the original owner installed plastic protectors. Someone with some talent and a little heat could probably fix them but I didn't want to risk damaging them more so I left them as is. Playfield has a little of the dreaded dimpling that only happens on new sterns (lol) but otherwise looks and plays flawless. With the LEDOCD board you do get lamp errors as the game was designed for incadecent bulbs. So if you go into test mode you will see lamp errors but that is expected and it is working correctly.

The game comes with the extra parts listed in this for sale thread, please click it for pictures.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/fs-big-bang-bar-pinball-machine

I am looking for cash, a high end Monster Bash plus cash, or a restored CCC plus cash, restored TOTAN plus cash, Restored TOM plus cash. Not looking for anything else so please don't bother offering anything else. Please PM me with questions and I'll answer them as best I can. Any trade offers would have to have either a restored clear coated playfield or a new mirco playfield installed to be considered. I'm only looking for high end game

Pics added. I left the leg protectors on since the damage was already done. 3 out of 4 of them are wrinkled but otherwise the game is really nice. Original bulbs are in the cabinet, I'll of course put those in a bag for its next owner.

You should probably post your own photos of the game as it currently sits. The only photos appear to be from 2007 when it was unboxed by previous owners.

Absolutely, currently but planning to add a bunch to the thread tonight. Can't have to much information as a buyer for these types of games.

Looks like a bargin compared to previous owners asking price,should not last long

This is an unique game.
One of the best theme, best sound package, best artwork and it gets the best ramp ever made.
A very fair price.
Good luck.

It was relisted later at a price much closer to my for sale price. I just accidently grabbed the original listing. I'll get new pics of the game uploaded tonight. I've had several people request them so I'll try to get pics of everything that people have asked for.

Pics added.

That seems like a fair price for someone (with admittedly deep pockets). As someone who had one of these in the past, it's a great game. Good luck with the sale.

Wow. Great looking machine. Wish you were (much!) closer. GLWS!

I wouldn't buy anything from this seller. He seems to have a little too much attitude.

Want your old lotr back? If you miss it, I'm sure we can make a deal. Good seller bump and GLWS

#16 2 years ago

I said this once before, but you have to have some of the most interesting sale threads on Pinside JD! I am talking about both what you have for sale and the discussions. Well here is another one - Big Bang Bar?! Whoa!

Bought from seller before. He is a great seller and loves pinball. GLWTS!

Long time no see man. Glad to hear you still have that LOTR. I missed it after a year or so and jumped on a second hand HEP when I got the chance. Hope all is well.

I knew I liked you O-din. Not only attitude, but he' a huge Pearl Jam fan and I don't know if you can trust someone who likes Eddie Vedder that much.

You don't need to understand the lyrics to like it.

I do love Yellow Ledbetter and I don't understand anything except something about a front porch and someone not waving.

Since this is a thread about Pearl Jam, I like Dirty Frank.

It's a combination of PJ and space strip clubs. What more could a person want out of a thread.

For those that have asked about the spare part I have a spare ramp, target decals, and a few other things. I'll try to get pics of them tonight.

Quoted from kidchrisso:

Do you have the number plate with it?

I'm honestly not sure but will dig around for it tonight.

#27 2 years ago

Lots of trade offers but nothing finalized yet. I'm a little disappointed I haven't gotten a trade offer from Odin for his Pinky

All PM's responded to, nothing finalized yet but thank you to everyone for all of the offers. I'm updating the add to include a restored TOTAN or TOM as possible trade options.

At that price I'm not surprised it sold in two days. - Congratulations to seller and new owner.

#32 2 years ago

So this once again one of your sale threads gets interesting, goes off topic with random posts and FG videos, you have an all out posting brawl with o-din and you still get a sale in a day?!

Amazing!

Congrats to buyer and seller!

I meant to track you down at the show Marcus just to say hi and so that I could finally meet you in person. Time got away from me though and next thing I knew I was breaking down games and helping pack up

I did get chance to enjoy your fireball though!!

TPF has a way of doing that. Come back next year, and we'll go eat a steak dinner, on me.

I like the sounds of that!!

Maybe that's why we can't understand him. He's chewing on the microphone.

Well dang I would have traded this pristine Golden TOM + cash for that BBB. If the current deal falls through let me know. otherwise kudos to the seller and buyer.

Wow, nice TOM

#41 2 years ago

Undocumented HUO TOM got it at an estate sale but since the original owner passed away they had no idea where the original receipt was to document it but you could tell it was originally bought by the owner. This pin was sitting in a game room that had a Wurlitzer bubbler juke box and an albino buffalo head on the wall with a very expensive 9' billiard table. I replaced all the chrome with brass and added color DMD plus Leds. Don't think there is a cleaner nicer TOM unless NIB. Would only get rid of it for a BBB not for sale otherwise and plays 100 percent and is gorgeous just to sit and look at it. Sorry I was late to the game but glad you sold the BBB.
