For sale: Big Bang Bar

Added: November 16th, 2018 Ended: December 4th, 2018
Condition: HUO - Documented (Home Used Only)

Item description

HUO #111. Green and purple 3 stage powder coat with super chrome. Including coin door and shooter housing.

All the PinBits mods, tube rings, tube dancer accents, pop bumper stacked rings,full set of plastic protectors, Cliffy eject protector, mirror blades, no flicker LED’s through inserts, custom LED back box with fade feature for logo area. Stand up target dead foam.

Has cab decal wrinkle at front right and front left leg. Leg cabinet protectors are in place.

Extra NOS sling plastics, NOS flesh colored tube dancer included along with 4 Stan Fukuoka framed art prints.

This is a very nice example with all reversible mods.

If you are interested I will include the BBB space ship in the sale (no additional cost). It’s approx. 5’-6’ long. I had it custom sculpted from the image on the playfield. I had hung it from my gameroom ceiling. I’m not certain but it may qualify for NAVL 2for1 shipping.

I believe CGC has indicated they plan to remake this game. Just a question of will they really, and how long down the road.

Willing to ship via NAVL.

Oh man. That is gorgeous. Someone is going to love it.

#3 5 months ago

Beautiful! Oh and I am jealous of the open garage and the game out in the sun while it is snowing here, 3”-5” overnight!

Great looking BBB. GLWTS.

If they do make a remake, I'm in. I've only ever played the virtual version, but it is a blast.

Beautiful pin... i kind of want it... i am selling a few this weekend.... hmmm

#11 5 months ago

Nice. Looks like mine and wouldn’t sell it for that. Glws

Blimpey is a good dude, GLWS!

#13 5 months ago

Beautiful. Drool

#14 5 months ago

I can also sit the spaceship in my front yard and charge folks to take pics with it ...that will off set some of the cost ...... lol

#15 5 months ago

Why is there 8 legs. 2 coin doors 4 side rails 2 lock bars and so on and so on?

#16 5 months ago

Ok, yeah I just dropped $8300 on MBrLE, and yeah, there is no way a CGC BBBrLE is going to be this nice, and yeah, all the extras... but this is like museum grade custom. This is what someone wants to buy to make a really BOLD statement on their commitment to BBB... how much is the full upper arm tattoo that comes with it?!? GLWS

#17 5 months ago

I think those are pics from having the work done... so it was like someone was making 2 nearly identical machines, he just bought one of two?

A buddy had a BBB also so I had both games powder coated at the same time. That’s just a photo of all the hardware together from both pins.

#22 5 months ago

Man I wish one of my buddies had one that I could get some time on! Absolutely beautiful GLWTS.

#23 5 months ago

Someone else is gonna get a grail. Drool...

#24 5 months ago

That's a beautiful example. The powdercoat job really completes the machine. Well done.

Just look at all the components on the playfield, it has way more assemblies and objects than on the top side of either MBr or MMr - how is CGC gonna pull that off for $9K?

It's a shame about the leg wrinkle but back then we were all brainwashed into believing that pincab protectors were going to save the world. Mine has a bit of the same thing, just on the side not the front. And the key point here is that it doesn't detract from the overall excellent art package.

The UV paint on that spaceship is amazing. Wish I could pull something like that off. it definitely needs to go to a good home (with a BBB!)

Not overpriced by any means. GLWTS.

#25 5 months ago

Need some help - always wanted one of these machines - especially one this nice.

However, how much risk am I taking is what I need to know. If CGC did a remake, how much (if any) would I lose if I bought this game.

Game is awesome looking.

#26 5 months ago

If you are worried about losing $$$ than you should wait and see how the remake (if it happen) shakes out. Otherwise, this is absolutely stunning and would be a great score.

#27 5 months ago

I bought one for the same price and couldn't care less about resale. Mine is also powdercoated green looks great on this game.

Some slow and light heat from a heat gun or a torch would most likely get rid of a bubble like that.
I would not recommend just anyone go at it ,But if you are comfortable with flame polishing ramps you could try it.

Well as this is Technically a Remake already (Gene) that kind of answers your question. lol JK. With that said, I can say of All the games I sold to get that next fix this is the one I regret selling. Very ahead of its time in my opinion and a really fun game. Not necessarily family type friendly but without doubt one of Capcoms best creation. (Or Genes) IF they make this title I would guess it will be Many years down the road...

BBB is a fun game with exceptional art. GLWS!

#31 5 months ago

I gotta have this! Unfortunately, my petty cash box is about $17,000 short... GLWTS!

I'm an expert in leg wrinkle recovery. Fixed a BBB as well, with way worse wrinkle including tearing.

Can you elaborate? Curious if you use some sort of adhesive to stop the decal from lifting/wrinkling again.

Release Bibby from timeout.

#42 4 months ago

Wish I took my own before pics, but I have some from the previous owner. No additional adhesive needed, just a hair dryer and decal squeegee. It's not perfect, but this was the worse I've ever dealt with. Keep in mind I could have put Pincabs back on with spacer, to hide what little visible damage still remained. I just didn't think it was worth putting Pincabs back on with how it turned out.

Pretty sure Gene included the clear pincabs with all the BBBs too, that certainly didn't help

My BBB isn't going anywhere haha, his looks just like mine but it's a different one with the same powdercoated trim. I have #93.

First: No BBBB should ever be beside a BBB.
That's pinball pollution.

Second:
If this is being remade, it's 2 1/2-3 years out, at least.
TOM, CC are definitely ahead of BBB in the pecking order, and zero risk making those - they'll sell like hotcakes.

Looks like a gorgeous example.
Enjoy new owner.

A piece of pinball history. Its a great story to tell people how the game came about. I was sad to see mine gone until the bank transfer came in

Haha, BBBB is not quite in the same league but I liked the theme, it was 1 owner since new with practically now plays at all when I bought it (original rubbers batteries and lights with no leakage amazingly). Shame they wasted such a good theme but the kids enjoy it.
