Item description

Capcom Big Bang Bar, home use only pinball machine. This game is # 136 from the limited run of 191 machines produced by Illinois Pinball.

I am the original owner of this beautiful pinball machine, I waited over 3 years to receive my game. The game was picked up at Illinois Pinball and has been well cared for ever since. The overall condition is excellent, everything works as it should. A few very minor blemishes on the cabinet from corporate moves over the past 10 years.

Installed on the game are a pop bumper dress up kit, drop dead target foam, Cliffy dartz hole protector. The original green tube dancer has been replaced with a 3D repro made by Tim Dunbar.

Included in the sale are my spare parts; a full plastics set, ramp, tube dancer tube, blonde tube dancer, EL ramp decal and target decals.

I will not ship this game or work with any shipping companies, it must be picked up at my home in Bentonville AR. Terms are cash and carry only, I’m not interested in any trades.

Additional pictures available upon request, serious inquiries only.

There is too much that can go wrong shipping a game of this value. I don't have the ability to crate it, I'd rather have a buyer who can see and play the game, load it up and take it with them.

I can't find a total plays in the audits, total games started is 1239. We have enjoyed the game over the years, it's been well cared for. The game is a tank, very solid and has been a pleasure to own.

That would be best as one BBB that was in my neighborhood had an extremely warped playfield and that would be something hard to pick up just looking at pics.

Commercial shipping todat is awful.
I would only use a few private individuals for any of my games. Last 3 times I used STI, I had major issues. I do not care about insurance. To me damage to a game like this has no price.

question, would it make sense for sellers that don't want their machines shipped to make an exception and to allow Bob Cunningham to pick up machine for an out of state buyer? To me this isn't like "shipping" it, since he's a collector himself and not a commercial freight service. I have had great luck with Bob and would trust him with a rare machine. No way would I use STI/NAVL etc with it. Seems like it would open them up to more potential buyers. Not telling the seller what to do, but just an thought...

I'd probably consider shipping like this for the right offer. The issues with the usual shippers are numerous, with a game of this value it's not worth the risks.

Same here - last shipping event for me was with STI. Complete train wreck all the way around. Significant damage to an otherwise perfect SM Vault and STI simply did not care. Paid out insurance minimum of "by-the-pound". Never again will I use them, ever. Shipping with a Bob Cunningham or other trusted pin hauler is the way to go.

BTW - I've known Tom for quite a while and he is a stand up, quality guy - miss you my friend!

Buyer always assumes all risk once it leaves your hands, right?

Oh man what a bummer, in my experience STI pays claims but if you don’t spend the extra $40 to $50 for full value insurance they pay by the pound and it ain’t much!

If I were buying BBB, I'd just catch a flight out, rent a truck, and drive it back.
