Some games just feel so good to shoot, and this is one of them!

#3 11 months ago

Great game. I have one and will never sell. This game also has the decals on the lane guides which look great

#4 11 months ago

Too bad about the fade and shooter lane wear.
If I was going to consider this one, I'd want to see some pics of the underside of the playfield, inside the back box and cabniet. Is there anything rebuilt ?

#5 11 months ago

I’ve seen a hell of a lot worse shooter lanes. I actually don’t think it looks that bad. In regards to the cabinet you know some of these are made with black and white cabinets. This one Has a lot of color in it. No nicks on either side either.

#6 11 months ago

There.j I just cleaned up the shooter lane for you. Looks much nicer now.

#7 11 months ago

Shooter lane looks great for a game this age.

#8 11 months ago

I just sold mine and already miss it. It had the B&W cab and it sold for more than his asking instantly.I think this is fairly priced.

#9 11 months ago

An unfaded green cabinet is definitely more desirable than a black and white cabinet, but a black and white cabinet is more desirable than a faded green one. I think that's how it goes.

The shooter lane on this one looks fine. Overall, a darn nice-looking example.

#10 11 months ago

This game looks great. Glws

#11 11 months ago

Yeah that shooter lane looks great compared to mine. GLWS

#12 11 months ago

Thanks guys.

#13 11 months ago

Great seller and easy to deal with ... I've seen and played this game in person and looks/plays great. Honestly, if I did not pick up a game recently I would have bought this.

#14 11 months ago

I would eat off that shooter lane.

#15 11 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Maybe I'm just being too picky. To me it shows how much use a game has gotten. Yes I realize the age of this game. Just comparing it to mine with the asking price. Hope the OP can get what he's asking for !

#16 11 months ago

Couldn’t care less what a shooter lane looks like. I care how the rest of it plays and presents. A game with 500 plays can look worse than one with 100k plays. So much more goes into a games condition than what the tiny groove that the ball sits in looks like.

#17 11 months ago

Wasnt the shooter lane inquiry originally a joke and it has evolved into some absolutely ridiculous request that really holds zero bearing?

Sounds about right. Some swear by it though. Legitimately.

That shooter lane doesn't look bad at all lol gtfo

#20 11 months ago

Didn’t use to, but as my pinball collection has amassed, my preference for flawless shooter lanes has become a factor.

#21 11 months ago

The top of the volcano is broken. That part in unobtanium and should be disclosed to potential buyers.

#22 11 months ago

too bad all the GI's are green. That's going to be a 3 hour project for someone to fix.

#23 11 months ago

That’s a green LED strip in the back of the playfield. Can easily be removed. Thought the green would give it a nice jungle look.

Doesn’t effect gameplay. You make it sound as if it doesn’t work at all when in reality it’s chipped and easily repaired.
That said Congo’s are difficult to obtain here’s someone’s chance to own one.

#25 11 months ago

nice pin. dont see many of these up for sale.

If you're a sloth or a noob that changes bulbs from the topside. I swear...pinball people.

Some brand new stern’s quickly ding up the shooter lane. Clear cracks, etc.

Congo is a fun game. FYI You can fix the volcano yourself. Mine was blown out. Not a huge deal.

#28 11 months ago

Why is it only the good games have fade. Couldn't someone have just put a Xeon by the window

Looks nice GLWS

still takes hours. You don't realize it but it does. And not all Gi's can be accessed from the bottom. Some are mounted on the top.

Quoted from pingeo:

it's not just the green strip. All your GI's are green as well. GI's are general illumination, which means it's what is suppose to supply the light to the playfield, so you can actually play the game by seeing the ball. If they are any color except white. All people have problems playing the game. Some are actually 100% unplayable because there is some monochromatic color put there. Green is super hard to see anything in, as well as blue, red and purple and orange. You might be able to get away with yellow if it's super bright, but then you might as well go with daylight/sunlight white.

#31 11 months ago

Love Congo. I had mine up for sale for a bit because I wanted a new pin but changed my mind. GLWTS. Great game.

#32 11 months ago

Funny about all the grief with my statement about the shooter lane wear, nothing about no mention of anything being rebuilt or no pics of boards and inside the cabinet. So really who's fixated on the shooter lane? Just saying.

#33 11 months ago

With all this concern over shooter lanes, I'm going to make sure to sand all mine, and spray a little clear on it before I post any more for sale ads on pinside. Makes them look brand new.

10 minutes work for an extra $1000 or so sounds like time well spent.

Your LED policing is old. Move on.

#38 11 months ago

i disagree. I have already noticed a dramatic drop in the stupidity on FB. Used to see it all the time. Now when people openly get bashed for it, it has been greatly reduced and people are starting to realize it makes the game unplayable.

Wait. You PLAY your GAMES?!?!?!

I only keep mine on display next to my Ferrari I don't drive, with my bottles of Pappy VanWinkle that I don't drink, next to my guns that I don't shoot, on top of my records I don't play, because I have to keep the resale values UP!

I really believe this is what the FB crew does. Has to be, because there is no way that anyone can play a lot of the games shown there.
