For sale: Embryon
Featured Ad

Added: November 25th, 2018 Ended: April 16th, 2019
Condition: Partially restored (almost original)

Item description

Up for sale is an above average Embryon. I inherited it as an unfinished project that had sat in a local tech's collection for a long time. I've brought it back to life and almost all of the boards are new. I've put time, effort, and money into it, and I need to move it out to raise some funds. It's above average and has over $1k in new electronics installed. I will absolutely NOT say it's perfect, nothing is perfect, but please see the description and pictures.

Short video here https://photos.app.goo.gl/NgAg8j6YswuFCob69

So now onto the details...

The good:
Already shopped. New rubbers, posts, etc.
Full LEDs in playfield and backbox
Above average playfield
Above average cabinet
Fantastic backglass
Rebuilt/new drop targets

The new:
Alltek CPU
Rottendog power supply
Alltek solenoid driver board
5x XPin LED displays (white with blue gels)

The not-good:
Needs a speaker. None in cabinet at present, but I may scratch one up in the next few days.
Needs the last bit of reassembly (few plastics, flipper rubbers)

And just needs to be tweaked as any game would.

Would consider trades, but strongly prefer cash.

The game MUST be picked up. It's in my basement and STI will not do stairs. If you're local, fast eddie has been to my place and I will work with him.

Sounds to me like somebody did not have cash on the glass.

#7 5 months ago

I don't care if he regretted selling to me for the price that he told, the problem is I passed on other ones caused he told me I can have it and not an email or texted to let me know that he changed his mind? I was very surprised seen thus add here!!! I thought he was better than that, if was about he need more money he should told me and I will work something out!!

#8 5 months ago

Maybe he was worried you were a scammer due to your English.

#9 5 months ago

I don't think so!!! We talked thru Facebook, text msg and personal email too,

I suggest you call him RIGHT NOW and start driving in his direction.

How long did you expect him to wait?

I really don't need to deal with people like that I m just letting people know who they are dealing with it, that's all

#12 5 months ago

I believe the issue at hand is the seller had a price , buyer wanted it and agreed to it , but because seller had someone chime in and offer more money now the deal is sour. Stick with one price, not greed.

if true...not cool: a deal is a deal. cash on the glass, or not.

Not surprised by this at all.

Sorry that happened to you Amarildo. Best you can do besides sharing is to remember and avoid in the future.

Tnx, I shared to let people know who they're dealing with it.

Wasn't he a mod too?

He seems to have many posts and positive feedback.

Whatever happened,so be it but it doesn't look good to go inactive after being called out. Just my thoughts.

Yes he definitely was...

Has the machine been sold?

#26 5 months ago

Why is the ad still up? Can't message the seller? Still showing as an active for sale post.

No idea.

i've done biz w greg multiple times and always a good experience. and so did many others. i can't vouch for this particular ad, but i think the benefit of the doubt is deserved before the pile-on begins. and does no one else find it odd that this buyer is only showing 3 of 10 messages? if you're going to lower yourself and air your dirty laundry to the public, why only choose select pairs of underwear? seems fishy to me.

though i do get a kick out of the misspelled "EMBROYN" playfield inserts.

Nice professional touch

#31 5 months ago

I have also done business with the seller. Never had a problem. Not sure the story here but sometimes when people get attacked sometimes they fight sometimes they just say to heck with it and dis engage. I too would offer the benefit of the doubt and let this one go

#32 5 months ago

Even with the misspelled inserts, game looks great either way. I had messaged him, and never heard back.

You guys could also try to reach him over at Rockland pinball. These dudes ain't hard to find if you want to buy a pinball machine!

Within days after this ad went up...a Criss Angel-like disappearance. Last I spoke with him he said he had a potential buyer, but I never heard back from him after that.

Sold my Embryon at Pintastic last year, and shouldn’t have. Fun game.

Embryon was my first pin, & will be the last to leave.
