Condition: Used - shows wear but 100% working and clean

Item description

Let's try this again! I used to have Green LED's in the game and nobody seemed to like it. So I went in and replaced the green with warm white LED's. Some photos of the cabinet still show the green, but it is now gone. All white.

For sale is a 1980 Space Invaders. Fun game, great sound effects.

This machine has the following new parts...

Full LEDs from Comet Pinball
I installed two spot lights to help illuminate some dark spots on the playfield (removable)
New Sound Board
New LED Lamp Driver Board from Alltek
New LED Auxiliary Driver Board from Alltek
New Solenoid Driver Board from Alltek
New Rubbers from Marcos
New Front Flippers from Marcos
Replaced the front lock

What this machine needs

Not much, I would consider getting a play field protector. I had to remove the old mylar since it was peeling up on a few spots.

This machine still has the original MPU board which is fully working (up to you if you want to bullet proof).

The very left "50" tends to flicker on and off due to a loose socket. I tried to adjust it, but it may need to get replaced. Lots of vibrations from the pop bumpers being so close.

There is some wear on the play field I have not bothered to touch up. This machine is from 1980 and I found Chuck E Cheese tokens in it, so it was routed at one time. So yeah there is some wear and tear. I like the battle damage, but if you are one of those collectors that needs their machine mint, this probably isn't the one for you.

Coin doors have been wired (not by me) to be on free play. I have had zero issues so I just left it.

For the most part this game is complete and plays great. It is such a cool pin. If you are not aware, this is a wide body, so make sure you have the room.

Thanks for looking!

Looks a lot better. GLWS around my area this would have sold in no time green or any color.
