FT: HUO Stern Avatar for a Rolling Stones Pro

Added: June 10th, 2015 Ended: August 1st, 2015
Condition: HUO - Documented (Home Used Only)

Item description

I have a HUO Stern Avatar (Pro) and am looking to trade it for another game or two. I am located in Fairfax, VA (about 20 minutes outside Washington, DC) and am only able to deal locally (I have no way to transport my game).

The details:
This is a later run built in late 2013 that features the updated CPU set and the nice, glossy cabinet decals (versus the ugly screen printed cabinets of earlier runs). Excellent condition with some basic aftermarket mods--full LEDs for both GI and inserts, Flipper Fidelity sound system, Flipper Fidelity backbox LED lighting. Playfield is pristine and the shooter lane has no wear. GI LEDs currently consists of warm bulbs (with a little bit of cool in the back), but I can swap them out entirely with cool bulbs and a mix of colors if you want. Also comes with extra toys that aren't installed/mounted.

There are a couple of minor issues--coin return is nicked a little bit, and there is a tiny scratch by the front right leg that you can't really see unless you are a few inches away.

I am only looking to trade this game and am not looking to sell it outright. Here's a variety of criteria to give you an idea of what I'm willing to trade for/trade offers I am willing to work with:

1. Even trade for another HUO modern Stern of the same value (The Rolling Stones, Avengers Pro, Transformers, 24, etc).

2. Even trade for a routed modern Stern that may normally be worth more than this, but is about on the same value level due to condition/heavy wear/etc (Simpsons Pinball Party, Metallica Pro, etc).

3. Your lesser-value modern Stern + cash for the Avatar (Nascar, World Poker Tour, etc). Preferably HUO.

4. Two-for-one trades of cheaper Sterns, Segas or Williams WPC games. Not really interested in anything pre-DMD at the moment, and I'm not really interested in Data East stuff either--just Sega, Williams, or early "Modern" Stern in this category.

Message me if you would like to know more details about my game, come check it out, or shoot me an offer.

Bi-weekly bump.

(Thought about waiting a month, but damn I'm weak).

#3 5 years ago

Wow not seen a 2013 Avatar pro before but I have a 2013 TRS pro from.when Stern had to rerun both titles. My 2013 has the improved decal vs screened cabinet, does you 2013 Avatar have decals also?

I need to double-check the date but I'm pretty sure it's 2013, the previous owner picked it up NIB at the very end of '13. I believe it's got decals vs. screened, but I'll double check that as well.

TRS Pro--did they actually manufacture that into 2013? I thought the game did terribly for Stern and they stopped manufacturing it pretty early on. I'm interested to see what it looks like compared to the Pro I originally had (manufactured early 2011, I believe).

#5 5 years ago

I just checked the manufacture date, and sure enough, August 2013. I checked the cabinet as well and it's definitely decals on this thing, not screen printed. I know exactly what you mean because my original Rolling Stones from 2011 was screen printed and looked terrible. This Avatar though looks beautiful with the decals--super smooth, crisp and glossy.

I haven't been home but later today I go thru and post pics. Good luck on your hunt. I really enjoy the pin with just a few mods.

Bi-weekly bump. If anyone wants detailed photos just message me. I haven't felt inclined to take them because I don't expect it to go anywhere anytime soon (Unless someone has a Stones they want to swap for it, of course).

U had a stones right? There a reason u dont wanna try something different?

Quoted from bigd1979:

I never wanted to sell the last Stones I had. Trying something different isn't bad, but Avatar is good so I'd rather keep it unless I can get a TRS for it. TRS is also about even on value, so I'd be looking at an even trade.

Still looking.

Might entertain an Avengers Pro, X-Men Pro, or a super nice RBION.

Figured it would be wise to take some more photos. Use the Google Drive link for more photos than you see in the top post: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B8wCYkqeW2DgfkdmbG5pMVJtZnlXVmM2NHdwOW1Cd1NyZjBESm1aSnBlejNxd2VGME82dFU&usp=sharing

Bump for a good pinsider and a great game in pristine condition. Miss this game!

#16 5 years ago

Still looking.

#17 5 years ago

All right, the longer I have had this up, the more I have been thinking of getting different games. That said, I am going to open this up to other kinds of trades. Here are the options:

1. Even trade, HUO modded Avatar for your HUO modern Stern of the same value.

2. Trade my Avatar for your lesser value modern Stern + cash on your end (make an offer). Can be routed or HUO, but I will obviously like to know how it looks.

3. Even trade, my HUO modded Avatar for your "normally-more-valuable, but maybe routed to hell" modern Stern (TSPP, Met Pro, X-Men Pro, etc).

4. Two-for-one trades. For instance, two Sega Showcase titles (X-Files, Independence Day, etc) for my Avatar. Might be interested in other combos but I kind of want games in this category to have some nice flow and be in good working order.

#18 5 years ago

Oh yeah, I still want a Rolling Stones first and foremost. But damnit.. none seem to be available. If anyone has one and may want to sell it outright, let me know and maybe I will put a price on my Avatar outright.

#19 5 years ago

Interested in cash + trade deals on lesser value Sterns, like Nascar, World Poker Tour, etc. (Played Nascar in Pinburgh today, really dug it, wouldn't mind having one for a while). PM with offers.
