You have a lovely jawline.

Free bump for OP.

Playing this at the NWPAS last weekend was a highlight for me: enjoyed the novel features in this game, especially the cascading ball effect which made it feel pretty snappy.

Yours looks pretty cool LED'd. Wish I could check it out in person, but then I might have to buy it...

What's it worth troll?

No insult intended - it looks gorgeous and I'm sure it's worth your asking price. But Spectrum is one of my Grail machines and I'm sad because I have no place to put it and all my money is committed to a retheme project. Timing is bad.

GLWTS - I genuinely hope it goes to a good home and I'm sad it's not mine.

I apologize, I've been getting some real low ball offers.
Here's where I got my price from, last Cleveland Show one sold for 2100. and one in parking lot at Allentown before it even hit the floor for 2300. Mine is nicer than both of those plus it's rare and 100% working. Hell I'll even throw in a manual lol.

You can take your 1700 offers elsewhere , I'd get more satisfaction parting it out and torching the rest, just saying.

Just curious, I shipped one of these from WI to NY a number of years back. Any chance this is my old game?

Please don't joke. If I discovered that you parted this machine out I'd be inconsolable.

The lowballers are fools - there should be a bidding war instead.

I have seen them for 1500 to 1700 working and clean. Just saying i don't think those offers are intended to be lowballs. That is typical on this deck ime.

#12 3 years ago

Very nice machine

Worth the money for sure

I respect your opion, however I challenge you to find a 1500 dollar anything lately (somewhat desired pins ) especially spectrum, I've not seen any posted in awhile other than projects, I'm really not trying to gouge on this one, I'm open to offers but not 1k less than asking,I've been ignoring those as my responses would be less than charming, but feel free to light me up like a Christmas tree when I post my huo ft ,that's gonna be fun boys lol.

Just fyi- I just had a arcade game shipped from fastenal from Wisconsin to buffalo for 150.00! No damage, less than a week, and no tax! Unbelievable!!!. I was speaking with them and they will ship anything cheap. Only hiccup is seller has to put on pallet and deliver to hub. I love navl but 385 vs 150 just saying, in most of my dealings shipping kills alot of deals.

Lol yes you did, love the game and cheap shipping as well. Thanks, now if I can sell this spectrum I'm good for a minute.

I had 2 about 15 years ago. One was involved in a fire, & the other one I lost the backglass to the floor. That was a sad moment since it was almost perfect. Ended up junking both for some needed parts, & then off to the dump. Not many of these pins still left.

#24 3 years ago

Per IPDB, of the 994 made, they sold ~500 and junked the rest. Gotta be 100-200 left by now?

#25 3 years ago

Played this a bunch at RMPS. Very cool game!

#26 3 years ago

How is backglass? If someone is an true aficionado of Spectrum and wants a new repro playfield, CPR is planning to run this one soon I think. Very cool game. GLWTS
