I didn’t post pictures on purpose. Anyone willing to spend the kind of money this or any HEP title warrants, will contact me directly and I will handle either in person or directly. Thank you for the kind words. Chris, you are nothing short of an artist. We appreciate your work every day. There is no comparison to a HEP pin. It is our measuring stick. My whole family enjoys pinball and has great appreciation for a pristine game. I am very fortunate and do not take it for granted. Happy flipping.

That’s what I get for using Siri.....without my glasses on. Obviously, meant “granted”.

I wish everyone in the pinball community could have the resources, funds, opportunity, time, or whatever it may be to own a HEP machine from start to finish. Yes, first and foremost, you will have an amazing machine that not only looks literally better than new. It will play better than new. It will also be virtually indestructible (within reason - under normal play). But that is not the entire story..... The initial “get to know you” conversations, the details about what is expected, and the initial game inspection once he receives it are fantastic and really get you excited. Once your game restoration is started. The real pearls are the email updates about progress and notes and all the little details. A previous poster was exactly right. You May. It pick out every detail by looking at a finished machine. But you will notice it along the progress. It is a HEP “experience”. We have sent many many games to Chris. We are at the point where we have almost run out of games to send. The next one in line for us, my wife does t want to send yet because she likes
Playing it so much and would miss it. She actually asked if we could buy another of the same title while we send Chris ours and then sell it once we got ours back. That is guy logic if I’ve ever heard it.

I did not chrome the coin door on purpose because in my humble opinion it was over the top and does not enhance the theme. That’s why I kept the original train and had a chrome one done. So I could always change it back. I have also toyed with (and I will if I keep it) on having another train professionally painted by a modeling painter. I think that would look nice.

I did use a chrome coin door on a BOP restore I did and it was ok but in the end, I thought it was overkill. When I got my HEP BOP, it was crystal clear. I sold my other BOP.

Selling/buying a pin of this price range, in my experience, is kinda like buying a car or something similar. There will be phone calls, emails, lots of communications. People don’t just come across this thread and go “oh, maybe I’ll buy that”. It takes the right buyer. But, I respect your opinion and agree it might be applicable on a pin of lesser cost and rareity.

Would trade for Star Wars Premium, Deadpool Premium, & Iron Maiden Premium.

I would put my HEP AFM, HEP MM, and HEP MB next to any special edition remake of the same title and they would blow the remakes away as far as feel, smooth play, durability, and attention to detail. They are not in the same category. Not knocking them just to be clear. It’s just apples & oranges.

They do have their place. Lots of people can own those titles for reasonable amounts of money. The HEP market, from what I have seen first hand, is unaffected. I don’t have to sell my HEP CC. That allows me to be ultra picky. I get PM’d all the time about my HEP collection with offers of sale & trade. I still have them because we love them.

Quoted from jkleinnd:

Sounds like a case for creating entirely separate game ID's on Pinside so we're not constantly confused, and know to pay more.

LoL. Just send a pin to HEP. You’ll see.

I think original player quality games and maybe even well taken care of shopped games may take a hit on resale value based on a remake of that particular title. I am of the opinion based on my experience and feelings that a HEP example of a remake is not affected.

I’m not specifically using Pinside as my target. I list stuff on MrPinball as well as our local Bash site. It’s all Google searchable. As far as I know, there is no HEP classified. There is a lot of word of mouth. They always seem to find me.
