This game was in an arcade that had a fire. There is smoke coloration inside the backbox and on underside of play field. It could be removed if you care to (it wipes off with windex), but game has functioned for at least 10 years this way and is not visible when playing. Also, someone creatively painted the front sides and front of cabinet (see photos). The sides of backbox are also repainted. Not ugly, just not the way it came out of the factory and has ben presentable and appreciated in my collection for many years. Tim Arnold once said "you can't play the cabinet."
This is a great price for a HH - yes it has it's caveats, but the mere fact that it lived through an arcade fire where other games were ruined but this one survived should tell you it's a survivor and wants to be played to make people happy! This game was not a part of the fire, just in the place that had a fire. The smoke coloration is just not an issue once you button it up... and, well the art could be changed back to original without much talent since it's just patches of color and lightning.
Honest seller looking for local sale to hobbyist who is wanting to add a cool game to their collection and learn a little, too.
