Are you saying that TNT did that horrible playfield "touch up"?

No way in hell.

#6 41 days ago

Lmao! Touch up!

#7 41 days ago

Todd must have let the cameraman paint this one.

#8 41 days ago

Well what do you expect for $800.00 dollars.

#9 41 days ago

Machine has a “15 years” sticker...
Todd is currently on his 40th year of business.
Game absolutely WAS serviced by TNT... 25 years ago :b
So Todd last saw this game in 1994.

Clearly it’s been beaten and belt-sanded since then and touched-up by...

#11 40 days ago

That looks like Todd's touch up on the playfield.

#12 40 days ago

You have to realize back then (year 15), TNT didnt work on the playfield art, cabinets, and all the little extras. They basically got the machine to work and sold it. Being that he is in his 40th year now...things probably need serviced again. Not sure if he even did the original style lithium batteries back then.

My guess is someone else touched that up, not TNT.
Hope for a hardtop to fix that.

OP has it listed at 800 OBO.

I think the criticism is unwarranted.

#14 40 days ago

Irrelevant note to give the thread a bump: I have a manual for this game autographed by Mark Ritchie. If only I had the game to go with it.

I did some research on FIREPOWER 2. in the last 40 years, we have sold 22 different machines. A few of them have been traded in and resold, but we still count it as one. (We have sold 43 of the original FIREPOWER machines so far) Back in 1994, we were not shipping games all over the USA, but just locally. We sold TWO of them in 1994---one for $700 and the other for $900. I do not know which one this was, however the one we sold for $900, we were out in 2007 changing the logic board (the AA batteries had leaked--we were not using our Lithium batteries yet. However, if this machine pictured has a lithium cell in it, then it would have been the $900 machine!
I can ASSURE you when we sold these games back then we were not putting $600 into them in parts and labor.We were also NOT painting them.....NO ONE WAS. We were changing the rubbers and replacing bulbs that were out.
Since the machine is being sold for $800 or OBO now, I think our customer got incredible value for his money--25 years of fun for virtually no cost! Todd

Agreed!

#17 40 days ago

I believe the cost is fair, I wasn’t knocking it at all. Just pointing out the touch ups and the TNT service mention. It’s best to lay out the facts plainly in my opinion. Even with the touch ups a $800 Firepower II in good, working order is reasonable.

#18 40 days ago

OK while we are at it, here's my submission to the playfield touch up house of horrors!

This is game has gone to a new home and I'm hoping they can find a new playfield for it.

If they made a hardtop for Firepower II, I'd be all over this. Alas, they only make it for the original Firepower.

It was originally listed at $1000 then dropped to $800.

#21 40 days ago

It wouldnt be hard to sand off the touchups and make it look like it did before some kid took a paint pen to it. I always laughed at that game cause it looks like it was something that would have come out before firepower, but after playing a nice working example I enjoyed it.

Agreed, no problem with the seller or TNT. The post read like TNT dId the touch up work. I thought " there is no way in hell Todd did that work"

#23 40 days ago

and yes the touchups are crappy, but still looks better than if it was bare wood. Least it kind of blends in and tricks the eye at first glance.

Well in that case, flame on!

#25 40 days ago

Sheeeet, I'd buy it to restore if it was in my back yard. OP seems to have done a decent job in description and provided pictures to support the claims.
I read the description that TNT SERVICED the machine PERIOD. Later in description it states the machine has been touch up painted. To me it does NOT read that TNT did the touchup...

Nah.

That Hot Doggin would have looked MUCH better with bare wood and so would the FP2. It can trick the eye for a second in a crappy photo in person stuff like that really stands out.

No touch up is always better than bad touch up.

#27 40 days ago

800 dollar games exist? Can’t even buy a junker EM for 800 bucks. Good deal.

#28 40 days ago

Great game for the price. Yeah the touchups are pretty bad but you won't care when you are playing it. The flippers are positioned all crazy though.
