Condition: Fully restored (full original status)

Item description

Williams Monster Bash Collectors Quality Full Restoration Pinball Machine. Pictures of the restore process are included in the listing. Cabinet was completely refinished and new Gen 2 decals were installed. Playfield was replaced with a brand new Mirco. Every metal playfield part was tumbled, polished, or replaced. Every coil either replaced or refurbished with new sleeves. Ultrasonic cleaning for the wire harnesses, boards, coils, and many other parts. Back Alley Creations hinges, rails, legs, and lockbar. Color DMD. A few mods have been added like the 3D pyramid, lit Drac coffin, and cliffy protectors.

All plastics were replaced and LEDs added throughout. One of better lit games I have ever seen in person. Really pops with the glow in the dark Titan rubbers and UV LEDs.

You will be hard pressed to find an original MB. We all know the remake is coming out (prior to that this would have been a 12k+ game) but this game is geared towards someone who wants an original. Parts will always be able to be replaced on this game and it is user serviceable. Can’t be so sure on the remake.

This is one of 5-6 few games I am selling for a friend. The other games include a nice Tales of the Arabian Nights, heavily modded original HUO AC/DC Luci, collectors quality Scared Stiff, Attack from Mars Remake LE, and an heavily modded HUO Tron LE. He would like to sell the games in a package deal if possible.

Willing to ship through STI if the buyer pays and arranges it. Wire transfer(preferred), cash, or PayPal Friends and Family for payment.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

This was actually my first restore. Put quite a few months into this one. My buddy bought this and a few other games from me about 6-8 months ago. He is buying some property now and liquidating most of his pins. Working on my own personal Addams now but this is by no mean my real job and it’s coming along slowly.

Appreciate the positive comments guys.

#7 1 year ago

Very well done truly a top notch restoration. Not easy to do at this level and certainly not asking what you put into it. GLWS.

#8 1 year ago

Like the painted monsters! Should sell quickly. Looks much nicer than the Treasure Cove MB I picked up last year!

#9 1 year ago

Buy this excellent pin soon & I can deliver it to you.
I'm driving right past this cool pin on my game delivery route.

What parts for MMR / AFMr other than the specific circuitboards or light boards aren't replaceable and user serviceable?

The boards are what I was referring to. After dealing with a few circuit board, and led board, issues on newer games recently I can speak from experience. Big difference from being able to run to the local electronics shop and finding cheap components. Have a few node and LED boards go down on a Stern and you have a nice piece of furniture waiting on a 250.00 board that’s the size of a dollar bill.

Price drop bump.

Wow, finally, a MB that has the pictures to prove the validity of the restoration. Well done - and very fairly priced for this level of work. GLWS - hope you get what you're asking for!

Wasn't aware the remakes were having the same level of issues as the Sterns, but yeah. I do agree that the price of things like Node Boards which are meant to be disposable and not easy to repair is relatively ludicrous. I really gotta figure out how to learn SMT soldering.

texasff78 is a fantastic pinsider - deal with confidence. I bought a SS from him a few months ago and everything was as promised.

Price drop bump. My buddy is wanting to sell and someone really is going to get a steal on this. I know the remake is not far away but for someone wanting an original you won’t regret this one.

#18 1 year ago

If i did not have one i would buy this. Beautiful MB. Way better than any remake could dream of.

#19 1 year ago

I don't know.... Is it still an "original" with new decals, new pf, etc? I think it's a stunner don't get me wrong but with the remake basically out the door, I can understand why something like this is having trouble selling bc it's almost a remake as well but older and played on.....

Timing sucks but maybe it's time to really drop the price if his friend wants to sell....

#20 1 year ago

You can see the arguments from both sides, the allure of a remake and a nice original (or restored like this one). Either way, this has been sitting for 33 days unsold where some time ago it would have been priced a few grand higher and been sold immediately. The market is speaking, wether or not it is from the remakes, new games coming out etc.
