Item description

This is the first game I'm going to sell that I don't want to, but I need the space.

This is an excellent Congo. All the new flipper mechs, custom lighting mods and LEDs, target decals, and a Cliffys. It plays really fast.

There is one spot on the playfield that I've taken close up pictures of. I don't think anyone would see it if I didn't point it out.

Come check it and play it. Pick up in person only.

I had a poker night recently, and someone who came over said Congo was one of their favorite movies. I thought he was joking, but he was serious.

I went back and rewatched Congo when I owned the pin... it is truly and awful film lol. But of the 100+ pins I’ve owned it is one of three or four I wish I would have kept. So many cool features. GLWTS!

Taco Bell tasted pretty good with the Congo themed paper cups.

Agreed! The movie is hilariously bad to me...especially the ending with the lasers.

This is one of my favorite pins to shoot. I love the shots. I'll get one again someday or I sell some of my other games and reach my goal, I may keep it.

No, it was a friend of mine. He may still end up getting it...who knows.

#13 1 year ago

Only reason I asked is I've had more flakes here the last few years than true buyers.
Bump.
Good luck.

Agreed. I always prefer to sell to people I know of possible, but friends change their mind too.

custom lighting mods and LEDs

Thats one way to put it

Quoted from TheLaw:

Haha, yeah, I'm biased because I changed just about every bulb in it...but I love thr colors. Pictures tend to oversaturate the light.

I really like the led mods in the volcano. They pulse and show off the volcano really nicely. I also have a lee strip behind Amy that I think lights up nicely.

Good looking Congo! I like the volcano mod, I did mine in red too, but found out that the volcano itself is made of yellow plastic. So I did mine with red LED's under it along with white strobing LED strips which gave the volcano the effect of lava flowing! Looks great!

Congo is one of mine and my friends favorite machines to play as its hard to find in the wild and in good working condition.
Good luck on your sell!......Mike

Thanks! Congo has always been one of my favorite games to flip. I love the layout and how it shoots.

That's cool how you used the LEDs in the volcano.

It's a Great game....glad I never sold mine years ago...Fun to shoot, Challenging and Gorgeous. Just not a fan of the Lower Playfield, they could have left that out
