Item description

I am selling my Star-Jet that was restored by Chris Spaseff and Rachel Bess. The previous owner had owned it for 50 years, so low owners! The playfield looks fantastic, cabinet and backbox look great also. I put in a new backglass from Shay so it's a faithful replacement. It's not perfect, the center plastic is cracked and the right slingshot plastic shows some wear for example. See the pictures.

This model was the first pinball machine with locking multiball. Just not many available at any price.

Trust me the pics don't do this justice. Jakes a great seller and has some dam nice pins. Good luck buddy.

#9 4 years ago

I've seen and played this game in person, it's stunning!

#10 4 years ago

I have never seen this pin, but it looks gorgeous. Chris and Rachel are doing most of my classic Sterns.

#11 4 years ago

Thanks for all the praise. The game is special to me, took years to find, but alas time to let it go. Hopefully it will go to someone who needs one of the most significant EM machines ever made. Not to mention, really good looking.

#12 4 years ago

What a beauty - would love to buy it, but export/import is too expensive and nowadays due to regulations too complicated or even risky

Good luck!

#13 4 years ago

I'm at a loss for words.

Wow.

That is one of the best looking EM's ever, someone will be very happy.

#14 4 years ago

Admittedly, I am not familiar with the exact whys and wherefores of exporting games, but my last rare game that I sold - a minty Defender with NOS playfield, etc. - went to Belgium. I know it can be done, but it takes a leap of faith, I would assume.

What didn't they like about the game that they got rid of it so quickly?

I am also open to trades if you have the right solid state game for me. Of particular interest are AMH or MMR (ha! a man can dream right?) or ACDC Premium or some others maybe.

Beautiful!

Curious, where do you shoot to lock a ball? Was trying to tell from the pics but can't tell.

#19 4 years ago

I believe they lock in the saucers most likely after the saucers are qualified?

#20 4 years ago

They lock in the two kick-out holes in the upper part of the field. Marked "1" and "2". The balls can be sent up there either through the initial ball launch with the plunger or from either flipper (unlike some em's that make it nearly impossible to get to the top). They are released by hitting the "2 Trigger", "2 and 1 Trigger", or "1 Trigger" standup targets.
