If this was in Michigan, it would’ve sold in the first day. Truly wish you were closer.

This game is 100% dialed in and playing perfect. Ive been play testing everyday. Awesome game, i dont get the hangup on this style of cabinet but too each his own. It gets you a centaur at almost half the price.

#13 37 days ago

It’s a nice game. The LE’s get no love.

The best part is they're thinner, so you can fit just 1 more in

Wow - how is this not sold? People sure hate the cabinet style on these I would guess.

#17 18 days ago

Thanks wamonkey! A few interested parties but if they weren't for trades they were too far away. There's someone in MD trying to figure shipping, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Yeah the cabinet might turn some people off due to the backglass size difference but you don't play the cabinet. The playfield is real nice with minimal wear.

Centaur (original) owner here. Just gotta say there's something cool about the Centaur II cabinet. I dig the red displays, especially.

I think over time you'll see original Centaur II machines become harder to find as people choose to convert cabinets. I can imagine there may not be many survivors out there to begin with. Some buyers are missing out on this for sure!

Centaur II and Eight Ball Deluxe LE would look really good next to each other, by the way.

I just popped back on this thread. I have a standard Centaur. I scratched my head a lot when I was looking for a Centaur between the different cabinet types. In retrospect, I kind of wish I got the unique smaller cabinet.

#20 17 days ago

There are some of us that actually prefer the rapid fire style cabinet. If I didn’t already have one of these I would have bought this.

Centaur II cab is neat as an oddity. Of course the main issue isn't a huge honking Centaur backglass, arguably the best looking BG in the game.

Thanks for the bumps gentlemen, and for all the interest. Game is sold pending pick up.
