for sale

For sale: Creature from the Black Lagoon

Added: November 20th, 2019 Ended: December 30th, 2019
Condition: Partially shopped/refurbished

Item description

Priced to move. I had an interested buyer but he stopped responding. I need the room. I'm firm at this price. I can accommodate shipping no problem at buyer's cost.

I picked this creature up in a multi-game purchase. The hologram will need some adjustment. Has the new halogen light mod and green tinted mirror. I don't think it is pointing at the mirror correctly as the creature is faint. You can see the creature fine if you point a flashlight at the hologram (see pic). Hologram had some bluing and a line that runs through it. I think the hologram brackets need to be angled differently. It looks like it is angled too steep as you can see the bottom of the screen through the playfield window. Again the motor and everything else works.

The good:
1. Playfield is nice with minimal wear around the Film inserts. Really nice compared to most. A cliffy can cover the scoop wear. One minor touchup you can barely see.
2. Partial LEDs
3. Functions as it should. I have been playing it. No credit dot.
4. Cabinet is nice
5. Ramps aren't all busted to shit up. Superficial cracks by post mounts. etc.

The bad:
1. Hologram needs to be adjusted. When a flashlight is shined on it it is blue but sharp. When working in game is not as easy to see.
2. Needs to be shopped.
3. Some cracks in the ramps, mainly where they mount to the posts.
4. Boards are in good shape

Price drop for quick sale.

The touchup is in the blue below circled in red. You can barely see it. Most wouldn't even be able to point it out.
