Item description

Up for sale is my incredibly rare Elbos Genesis. This pinball machine is gorgeous, in top condition and fully working. Im the only registered user with one on pinside and pinball owners, pinside has never seen one for sale, there isn't one in any location on map and none registered on pinball owners. It is the only one i have seen for sale ever!
Supposedly they were banned whilst in production due to an anti religious feel to it. This might be why you never see them. This particular machine as you will see in the pictures is in top condition!! All plastics are original and great condition. I added the ball shooter as i thought the eyeball suited it.
This pinball not only looks stunning it has an interesting playfield layout with an upper elevated playfield at the top accessed via two different ramps.
Its packed with stuff:
Flippers x 4
Pop bumpers x 3
Standup targets x 8
A 5-bank drop targets
Kick-out holes x 2
2-ball multiball
I am in the UK but i can easily help arrange shipping and have shipped plenty of machines to people in the USA. This is not a problem and not as expensive as you'd think, its not stopped other buyers in the past.
I am a collector and seller of rare and unusual games and if you are interested in anything else in my collection than let me know.
This is actually a very reluctant sale at the moment but I need to create some space for ongoing pin projects at the moment. I know I will never see another.
Thanks for looking and even if not interested i hope you enjoy the pictures.

WOW. Super cool layout and impressively rare! Good luck with the sale!

Also, add it to the list of "pinballs with tiddies"

#6 10 months ago

To many tiddies
R never enough

#7 10 months ago

I've never even heard of this one before. Great artwork!

#8 10 months ago

I love seeing rare stuff, Thank you for posting nice pics. Glwts

#9 10 months ago

Looks awesome! I'll give you a bump to ask for pictures of the side cabinet art.

#10 10 months ago

would you be willing to share pics of the inside of the cab? just my curiosity.

#11 10 months ago

Wow! I'm saving up for GnR, but, um, how much does shipping a pinball across the pond cost anyway?

#12 10 months ago

Is that backglass by Frank Frazetta? This thing is awesome

#13 10 months ago

Thank you for the compliments from everyone! It is even nicer in flesh. sataneatscheese ive just added a couple of cab pics I had when I was setting it up for you as you asked.

bigehrl i don’t have any on my phone, if I get chance I’ll take some for you. It’s currently got a IO Moon stuck in front of it.

VALIS666 shipping depends on your location but the actual shipping cost for one pinball is normally about £400-500.

Quoted from athena:

Maybe Mike & Steve was his pinball name

Some googling shows that the right side is Frazetta's "Swamp Demon"

Now I really want to know who Mike and Steve was, never really gave it much consideration before

#17 10 months ago

Wow . Awesome game, artwork and condition!

#18 10 months ago

Does it play well?

Do you have any videos?

#19 10 months ago

That’s awesome!

#20 10 months ago

Those are a bunch of frazettas images

#21 10 months ago

Nice machine. I’ll add it to the list of games that I will never get to play.

#22 10 months ago

I'd love to see some gameplay video

#23 10 months ago

Man, there were so many weird, one-off or small-run European pinball machines. Either from conversion kits or small Europe-only manufacturers.

This looks cool, but very weird.

#24 10 months ago

Man, all those "all seeing eyes" are my worst nightmare.
Interesting machine, like to know more about the build components.

#25 10 months ago

Super cool. Love seeing rare stuff. Would love to see some gameplay as it looks to have neat layout with alot going on .

A lot of people throw that “rare” word around when they’re trying to push the price on their machines.. Now this is rare.
