Condition: Used - shows wear, needs some work

Item description

Lifted this monster from my recently deceased grandparents house. Original guts as far as I can tell, chipped paint on the glass as you can see because my drunk uncle knocked it against a wall.


It runs and lights up. Notice there is one pulley string missing in the back.


Would love for it to go to a collector; someone that will give it TLC.


Clearly can’t ship; would have to pick it up or figure out something else.

Such a freggin cool type of game... and such a first post.

Do we have a Pinside champion for number of posts to number of zeroes in FS price ratio?

Not saying what this is worth. But I’ll always chuckle when a first post is a FS ad for $10k.

Op needs to post lots more pics especially close ups of the manakin man and at least wipe dirt off the glass to show condition better. This game needs a full go over and probably lots of adjustment. It’s a desirable and valuable arcade piece AFTER it’s been totally gone over and sorted thru by someone familiar with this specific game plus a New backglass needs to be located and added (if available). I personally think youre more in the 5000-7000 range depending on actual condition. I own the arcade book from 30 years ago with the full restoration/service manual. The book itself that originally sold for $25 is now worth several hundred dollars or more.
Remember these games need lots of adjustment after regular play. You don’t want kids or drunks banging away on them after full restoration. They are a blast to play when they operate correctly.
I bit the bullet 16 years ago and bought the Benchmark retro machine for $3500-4000. Excellent addition to the game room and no fear of damage to an antique machine. It’s almost exactly the same.

Backglass looks repairable, no?

Wow I read the title and thought there were 10 pins for sale for $10k. Sigh.

i was offerd one of these for 1000 years ago and didn't think it was worth it - what an idiot - i think i am going for a drive this weekend to see if the person still has it - hopefully the address is still in my GPS as i am not 100% sure how to get there and i don't have his # anymore - although i might be able to pull cell phone records as i know it was a 603 area code. i don't call many in 603 so i can give that a shot. thanks ed

That’s a fair buy it now price for someone with the capacity to do the resto.
Manikin man games are extremely cool and fun to play.
I have a Bromley Lil Pro golf Too.
Fun game based on Williams mini golf which is another very desirable and expensive manikin man game .
