Game - for sale

FOR SALE: Cyclone (cash preferred, TRADES+/-$WELCOMED!)

Added: 2023-12-19 00:37:01 UTC • Re-listed: 1 time (December 22nd, 2023) • Ended: January 2nd, 2024
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Price

$ 2,800

Excellent Cyclone up for grabs. v Maddeningly difficult yet somehow easy single ball game. Hey you! With the face!

Cons
One of the flashers on the backboard doesn't work.
Chipping in the inserts on the 1/2/3 above the pops (under a ramp) as far from the player as you can get.
Cabinet is not flawless, but is pretty darned nice (fine some issues)
Blue skillshot plastic is complete, but chipped
Left and right plastics have cracking around the screws and/or chips around the ball return (see photos)

Pros:
Other than the negatives above, machine is in very nice shape.
Playfield is WAY above average for an original with only issues being literally about 2 inches from the rear of the playfield as noted above.
New LED Displays
Full LED job (excepting the flashers and a handful of inserts that had ghosting issues with LEDs)
Mantis ramp protector on the center ramp.
Brand new Starship Fantasy center ramp.
New rubbers (within 3 months)
New target decals.
No issues with reliability or gameplay in the time I've had it (excepting it getting stuck on my old center ramp which I have replaced).
You may have played this one at York on freeplay prior to me fixing it up.
New apron cards.

Cash preferred, but could trade by itself up to a Stern Premium with IC (Stranger Things would be ideal) with cash +/-. Trades down with cash my way possible too. Eight Ball Deluxe? BM66? South Park? Time Crises 2? Black Knight (1980 or 2000)? Shoot me a “interested in a trade involving x” and I’ll let you know (my list above are just suggestions). Thanks!


Other considerations: Buy, sell, or trade I need you to come my way to Crofton Maryland as I need to be close to my family right now due to some medical issues we are dealing with. I can help load after play testing. Game is in a walk out basement with slight grass hill to road. I can help load (I’m former USMC and 6’4”) but it will need to be on a day when it’s dry. Crabtowne USA and House of Tropicals are 20 minutes from my house if you need an excuse to travel.

I can also give a non-binding guarantee (worthless) that your Pulp Fiction will not ship until you save up another $3,200 if you buy my Cyclone.

Sweet game . Great seller. GLWS . Don’t see any playfield wear . Most have at least some.

Thanks!

There is some playfield wear, but it is up by the 1,2,3 past the pops and behind the ferris wheel (you know, where the player can't see it). I've done a little bit of playfield touchup but I can only see it if I walk around the side of the machine. This is WAY above average for the bottom half of the playfield on an original.

Also letting everyone know that Whirlwind is now pending so the package deal/offers are off the table.

Here is some terrible gameplay footage and rule explanation I put together this morning on this machine. Enjoy! Or dont... what do I care!

Price bump drop! $2900 for an awesome Cyclone! Ride the Ferris Wheel!

Facebook buyer hasn't bought your game until Facebook buyer has come and picked it up!

Sometimes I forget you are still a relative babe in this here pinball town!

Lessons learned.

I got one more thing to add. I'll throw in this awesome ceramic powerball if you pick it up by Christmas. This thing weighs 2/3rds as Mucha s a normal ball, and it makes this one ball cyclone play super fast. I throw these in my pins from time to time to keep things fresh and to prep to lose at the
CrazyLevi allentown tournaments.

Had a few new accounts and first time pinball buyers reaching out with some questions so here is another video tour, this one geared toward first time pinball buyers.

FB is hit or miss. I was trying to give away small pieces of furniture ,and it turned into such a big pain in the ass that I just threw them out with the trash. Then last week I sold a Foosball table for what I wanted,to a really good buyer.
It's a good place to sell stuff,but sometimes it's not.

Price drop bump!

Come get your post Christmas pin! You guys know you need this to brush up for the Crabtown tournaments.

#14 6 months ago

Sold pending pickup with token deposit this time off of Facebook.

Lesson learned. It's like the floodgates opened on offers 2-3 days after Christmas. The week before Christmas... not a good time to buy/sell/trade.

Facebook has crazy trades. Was offered tattoo services.

I remember playing this machine at the York show, and it was really nice. Congrats with the sale.

#16 6 months ago

Dude flaked on his deposit and no showed. Need to ask for more than $20 on Facebook next time. Going to the Facebook alternates if no pinsiders want it this weekend.

You really need to ask for $100-$200. Weeds out the tire kickers. Great game, wish you were closer

#20 6 months ago

Pending again.

Man... we could have worked something out on Stranger Things.

Should be gettng the Elvira you traded me back from my temporary trade soon. Great game!
