For sale: HEP Restored Bally Attack from Mars

Added: October 1st, 2019 Ended: October 12th, 2019
Condition: Fully restored (full original status)

Item description

This is a HEP restored Bally Attack from Mars. It’s in immaculate shape, better than new in a lot of ways. Has the Bill Ung saucer light mods, runway green lights under saucer, red eye lights in aliens, color DMD, plays great, clean inside and out. Does have incandescent lighting throughout, which I will leave to new owner to decide if they want to replace with LEDs, didn’t want to modify any of Chris’s original work.

I fixed a few minor mechanical things from sitting/traveling. Works 100%. Only thing I couldn’t get to work are the red light eyes on the alien on the right, but that’s a mod.

Hard to price this with the remakes, but would still take an original Bally in this condition over remake due to serviceability personally.

Also, prefer a cash and carry on this one as it’s so nice I’m a little reticent to ship, but open to talking about shipping.

May be open to a trade on a CCC.

Is that an original Bally playfield or a remake?

#4 6 months ago

Great price for a hep pin. Gorgeous. I had one of my alien eye mod go out and had the great Gary Burback fix mine better than new. I would expect this pin sold in less than a few days.

It's an original Bally. I talked to Chris and this restore was originally done in 2010. Now, I don't know whether this was the original playfield and Chris did the touch up and clear, or if this is a Mirco, etc. that he cleared and perfected.

#6 6 months ago

Oh yea, there is a shaker motor installed as well

Either way it's a nice looking game for the price, but source of playfield, original or Mirco means a lot to some collectors if you could collect that information.

Otherwise it might just sell fast anyway.

The cherry on top, ive been looking for a pinbits integrated shaker for awhile. This pin is better than any remake.

Why do people feel the need to draw comparisons to originals and remakes. It’s really a personal preference. This is a beautiful game that would have fetched much more prior to the remakes so there has to be something about the remakes that people like, otherwise the market would not have changed.

#10 6 months ago

The remakes are based (Emulation) on pimped out originals they do have a place in the market especially for people who want the bling without doing the labor. Thats what makes our hobby so cool different strokes for different folks, now back on track bump for the seller.

#11 6 months ago

Take pic of shooter lane...spotting a Mirco is easy from there. They stick out like a sore thumb.

#12 6 months ago

It’s a HEP. It’s an original AFM.
It’s underpriced.

Any other jewels for sale?

#13 6 months ago

This is one case where I can honestly say I wish I was closer. Spectacular game and a good price. Tiki won’t have to come in here to sunshine pump this one. This one won’t need any help.

Fairly certain it isn’t mirco as their stamp is usually over here

On original AFM playfields the woman between the flippers has 2 flesh tones in her screening. She has a lighter/regular flesh tone which makes up most of her skin area, then highlights in a slightly redder flesh tone where there would be shadows and the like. Micro's playfields only have the one lighter/regular flesh tone and NO redder highlights. It's very subtle, but I see no evidence of the redder highlights here, so I'm gonna say this is a Mirco.

#18 5 months ago

The green behind the girl is also lighter on original playfields.

This example is still a beauty and should go fast! GLWS

That's a signature Mirco shooter lane as well.

Thanks, Chris! Can't wait buddy!

Bump with a small drop. Open to trades on CC or potentially the new Elvira Premium with a little cash my way

If you’ll notice, I was counting up, not down.
