Item description

CONGO

Congo is a pinball machine from November 1995, manufactured by Williams Electronic Games, Inc. this game is marked as used but this is the nicest example of this game that I have ever seen it is very rare and it almost impossible to find especially a congo ! game that has been fully restored even the coin box lid is powder coated emerald green. It has a custom-made led topper has a color DMD display the playfield is immaculate and also includes all brand new titan rubbers and a full LED kit custom shooter rod etc. The game is very clean the cabinet looks really good but it does have a few touchups on it. The game will also be sold as is and the buyer must pay for and have the game shipped or can be picked up locally I can assist with recommending and/or helping with the shipping as I know of a reputable company that specializes in shipping pinball machines and arcade games. Please note the game has been priced according to all the things that have been done to this machine you will not find another one like it would also take part cash and trade towards the right machine prefer call or text as I’m not very good at answering emails [phone number removed] Please keep all your disrespectful comments to yourself people who comment and complain about somebody are usually broke ass losers that can’t afford to buy a pinball machine and hate to see somebody else do well I saw lots and lots of pinballz and usually do not use this site for this reason if it continues I’ll remove my ads and continue to sell my games elsewhere

Good lord, your ad needs about 10 or so of these: ‘.’ It’s nearly impossible to read. Once those are placed in appropriately, add about 20 more well lit pictures of playfield sections with glass off and full cab photos- it will help your case for $9k obo.

I don’t know what a really nice Congo goes for, but last I checked player ones were like $4-4.5kish? This ones does look pretty nice… but what does ‘restored’ actually mean here? Cause for 9k I’m expecting a new playfield, decals, bunch of new parts,etc. Can you elaborate?

Definitely not restored... faded cab and touch ups on cab. It's a nice modded
and shopped congo but for around 9k I'd expect a basically perfect original example or a restored example ....also probably with shipping included . I don't even look at pinside market anymore as it's mostly all stuff like this or huo new sterns priced 1-2k above retail. Glws op.

#5 78 days ago

Planking on pf? Price is 3x over market.

#6 78 days ago

Wow this is more than my TZ? Who would have thought?

#7 78 days ago

Shooter lane?

#8 78 days ago

#9 78 days ago

Why is it always the new guys with these prices? Maybe they bought it at an insane price. They put a hand full of led's in it and now look it's worth 9k.

#10 78 days ago

Your kidding right???

#11 78 days ago

Punctuate often?

#12 78 days ago

You sold me on the powder coated coin box lid..

#13 78 days ago

Dacono pinball flippers strike again. Outrageous price, you should be ashamed of yourself... You and Jon are horrible for this hobby.

#14 78 days ago

20k by Christmas

#16 78 days ago

Cocaine is a hell of a drug

#17 78 days ago

It’s nice……just not 9K nice. I do think the powdercoat is a great match though.
GLWS I think you might need it.

#18 78 days ago

Get new ribbons, add NVRAM, and clean lower pf lens

#19 78 days ago

We're going to be needing pics of the coinbox lid with lens flare, pls.

#20 78 days ago

That was my game that I sold for $5200. It is not restored. as I did the powder coating and mods. It is nice but started as a re-import.

GLWS. I will sell mine for $7799. PM me for the deeeets!!!

Happy Friday.

#23 78 days ago

It's close... but it's not immaculate.

#24 78 days ago

This game was recently traded, including myself, for another game for fair market pinside value. It has probably been traded 2-3 times since mid June. Just disheartening to see what the market has turned into and probably wouldn’t have done it had I known it was going to end up like this.

#25 78 days ago

Make an offer! Easy weekend drive!

If it helps...I don't think you have to worry about how this ends lol.

Nobody here is dumb enough to drop 8k on this game.

See, I say things like this all the time, only for the op to post an ominous "sale pending" on it. Wish we could know when these actually DO sell, and for how much and to whom.

It's too much energy to care about this stuff for me anymore. If there's some sucker out there, let them pony up the cash. It's probably more likely that the OPs just do that to get people off their case, but who really knows unless it gets confirmed by the buyer.

I sell games for what I want to get out of them to feel good...after that if someone turns around and can sell it for 9K or lights it on fire in their backyard, makes no difference to me ha.

You are correct about that, after all the market is what someone is willing to pay for it

And I'm a cheap ass, so it isn't gonna be me ha. For the record, any of my WPC games are available at $8K a pop! Let's gooooo!

Maybe if people stopped paying insane stupid-ass prices for NIB, driving the used market up in the process, we wouldn't be here. But hey.....
