Item description

I picked this up recently, finished some things that it needed (as described below), but I'm just not connecting with it the way I hoped. It's ready to set up and play, with all lights lit, all switches switching, all solenoids firing, and no credit dot. Can also send video as well either via email or text.

Lower cabinet is in excellent condition, zero fade on the sides with good green colors on both sides and the front. This is original factory color, not re-decaled. The head box does have some dings on the edges which should clean up nicely without disturbing the artwork. I'm not fantastic with cabinet touch-ups, so I'd rather leave it alone as opposed to making things worse.

Playfield is also extremely nice. There is one line running through the artwork between the window and the flippers that doesn't affect game play. Normal wear on the kickout holes, with no noticeable wear on any of the inserts or the artwork. Two of the commonly broken plastics are broken as shown in the photos. Ramps are all solid.

Just installed a new playfield window, new jump ramp, new cabinet speaker, titan rubbers throughout, Comet LED's are color-matched in the inserts, warm white for the GI. New color-matched posts throughout.

DMD is sharp and clear. No burned/damaged connectors. No hacked wiring or other questionable work. No battery corrosion. The CPU board is a very early WPC-95, with the factory modification at U21/U12 per service bulletin 86. The only thing in the pictures not included is the pingulp, and I'll be swapping in 25c mech's.

Would prefer to trade for a similar condition STTNG if you're within reasonable distance, but also willing to sell outright. Price is firm, cash on the glass, no shipping. I find both parties tend to be happier that way. Would entertain some other trades in the same range as well if it's something that strikes my fancy. I also keep to my word. So if we make a deal, the game will be waiting for you when you get here.

This game never so much sunlight! The cabinet sides look phenomenal.

I was surprised too when I first saw it. Only WPC game I’ve ever had that wasn’t badly faded.

Bump. This is a steal compared to that other idiot with a Congo on here. GLWTS.

That thread is responsible for 99% of the downvotes I've ever gotten on Pinside. There's so many of them now, you got to wonder what it's like to be on that side. I don't think there getting anywhere based on my past two days of experience. I'm hoping to prove myself wrong. But we'll see. Buy what you want. Pay for what you really want. They're just games. Addictive. Addictive games. And you got to fund the next one. Unfortunately...

Bump for the seller!

If it helps anybody at all, I'll be heading through Rapid City, SD and Casper, WY in the very near future and could haul it that way.

But I'd only be able to do that on a guaranteed sale, as I'm heading out that way to haul a machine back.
