Item description

This is an extremely nice and very clean example.
Still have the original boards but allteks are installed.
Worst playfield wear around the 40 shown in pic below, overall the playfield is excellent but there is some insert cupping.
Worst cab scuff also shown below smaller than a pinky nail, no fade.
Backglass has a very small wear spot covered in tape that I am to scared to remove.
No operational issues, not even a single bulb out.
Will ship if you make the arrangements.

That seriously looks beautiful, but what’s up with the the sometimes blue, sometimes red flipper rubbers?

#3 15 days ago

Lol only had blue rubber at first then ordered reds.
The original rubber was still installed when I got it so that had to go immediately.

#4 15 days ago

In fact if you look close enough the original post caps are still installed.

#5 15 days ago

Gorgeous example! GLWS!!

#6 15 days ago

The wear isn’t too bad, I hope you get that kinda cash for it. Could make touched up/clearcoated examples worth even more!

#7 15 days ago

Clearcoat sucks!
Original with wax all the way.

#8 15 days ago

Clean.

#9 15 days ago

Natural beauty...looks a lot like mine (which I believe is HUO). Do you know this games history?

Great, classic 80's game. GLWTS.

#10 14 days ago

Don't know too much about it to be honest but I do believe it was an auction find shortly before I got it.

Quoted from schwarz:

I agree with you.
I had a Fathom and did a swap for a new clearcoated playfield. Turns out, I did not like how it played compared to the original, even if the original had some wear to it.

#12 13 days ago

You're going to miss it when it's gone! I'm on my third Paragon and this one's staying for good!

#13 13 days ago

One of my lifer pins!
Congrats to whoever buys this

#15 13 days ago

Is that a hey you're too low thumbs down?
If so i like it.

#16 13 days ago

I sold a Paragon for 1300 and felt it was too high of a price. It was nice, a little insert raising but no real wear.
I should have kept my mouth shut but there was too much positivity on this thread and its a very high price.

#17 13 days ago

Honestly wasn't sure where to price this.
That's why I started a price check thread for it.
From the feedback I got from there, PMs and another HUO price check thread, I took the average opinion and took off $200.

#18 13 days ago

If this is Canadian $ I think you’re spot on.. If U.S., it’s gonna be tough sell at your price. Check sale archives. Nice looking machine though.

#19 13 days ago

I checked the sale archives, nothing this nice has sold so hard to say.
A couple decided to keep in this price range though which I understand because I surely wouldn't let it go for $3700 CAD.

#20 13 days ago

The US/Canada border is closed for nonessential travel until June 21, at which point the closure could be extended.

#21 13 days ago

Shipments across the border are ok however.

I paid 2k for my HUO Paragon back in 2012. At the time, 2k was consider high for this title.

Considering Pinflation and the Alltek boards, I would expect this example to go for ~3k. They built over 9,000, which keeps the price lower than other 80's classics.

#23 13 days ago

Still condition is king!!
This is a super nice original with the new boards. If I had room , I would be tempted to make an offer.

#24 12 days ago

I am open to offers of course, price is not set in stone.
I also promise to package the hell out of it if I have to ship.

#25 12 days ago

Price drop for the weekend.

#26 8 days ago

Final drop before she comes off the market.

#27 7 days ago

Dammit, I really was hoping you’d get in the 3’s for this example.

#28 7 days ago

Man, I wish I had the space for this right now! Such a beautiful game.

#29 7 days ago

I would totally trade ya for TNA or your precious JD.
