Condition: Fully restored (full original status)
Near top end restoration! You won't find another one nicer. Professional crystal clear and hard as a rock automotive clearcoated Playfield.
What a classic example of the genius combination of cutting edge game design and the technology of the early 80's! All you have to do is coin up and you'll hear that hard to forget 1980's deep and haunting 8 bit sound we remember. The game play is also like no other titles as it's like playing three different playfields at once. Every place the ball ends up there's something else to do! Brilliant.
The restoration of this playfield is beautiful. The colors pop under the professional Automotive clearcoat. Any artwork touch up's were done with quality acrylic paint and are near perfect. I challenge anyone to find where any work was done. There is a touch of ghosting around a few inserts but there has not been any sinking or cracking in the 7 years since it was applied.
One other small issue is a crack in the plastic above the captive ball behind the three drop target bank. It's cracked where the screw holds it down to the wood rail. There are also a few apparent touch ups on the cabinet sides.
This game has the purple tinted backglass. I was told that only a few of the earlier released Embryon's has the purple. After production was underway it was changed to blue because that color was cheaper to produce. I can't verify that story but I know I like the purple much better then the blue!
Comes with custom lighted Plasma Globes. These are just velcroed to flat top of the head. If you don't like them just pull them off.
