    For sale: The Simpsons Pinball Party AUTOGRAPHED, Niiiiiice!

    Added: September 27th, 2021 Ended: October 4th, 2021
    Condition: HUO - Undocumented (Home Used Only)

    Price

    $ 10,000

    Item description

    For sale is my beautiful HUO (3rd owner) TSPP. From the later 2005 run, this game has an amazing playfield. I’ve seen a lot of TSPP playfields, and they’re all over the map in terms of color & quality. This is the best I’ve seen. Compare Homer’s head to other playfields - they usually have an ink splotch. This one doesn’t. Unfaded, unworn cabinet with clear mylar protectors around the flipper & start buttons. Sweet Maggie topper! (Just a Maggie I’ve had since I was a kid)

    Translite was autographed by Dan Castellaneta (Homer, Grandpa, Krusty, etc), Julie Kavner (Marge, Patty, Selma), and Hank Azaria (Apu, Snake, Comic Book Guy, Wiggum, etc). You’ll probably never see Hank Azaria sign anything Apu related ever again.

    Upgraded with ColorDMD, translucent yellow posts & star posts, white rubber, plastic protectors, Cliffy color post sleeves, I&S saucer protector, extra spotlight for Comic Book Guy, “Worst Episode Ever” CBG & Bartman figured (originals included in coin box), tasteful LEDs with proper color temperatures in the right places. Some flasher domes swapped to better colors. Garage decal mylared, so it has no wear. Mylar strips on either side of the shooter lane for protection.

    Even though this is a later run, it has the original run’s CPU, which has better audio. Later runs had an emulated sound chip which has an annoying BEEP when the music loops…this game doesn’t have that beep! Also has NVRAM installed, so you’ll never have to worry about battery damage or changing batteries.

    Yes, price is high - but this game means a lot to me & is in incredible shape & plays awesome. I’m even second guessing myself in listing it - but here it is, let’s see what happens. This is the right game for a huge Simpsons fan who wants the best example of this title to bolt to the floor. Bonus if your name is Greg, since Ms. Kavner personalized it to me. If the autographs are of no interest to you, but you still want the game - I can keep the translite & install a new stock one.

    I prefer a local sale, but will ship at buyer’s expense. If you’re in the SoCal area, you can pick up or I can deliver.

    Feel free to PM me with any questions, or post here in the thread! If I can think of any other info or pictures to post, I’ll update the listing.

    Beautiful game - super tempting...

    #3 19 days ago

    Home use only, and still couldn't prevent a bunch of people from writing graffiti all over it, you hate to see it.

    They were such jerks, I’ll never forgive them lol

    Reminds me of when that guy tried to sell one of these autographed by Matt Graening. If I recall correctly, the guy worked on the show and wanted $10,000 but ended up getting around $4,000.

    That one didn't come with sentimental value for rarehero though so there's that.

    What is the price without the autographed stuff?

    Usually the translite is held on with scotch tape

    I already have a lot of interest for the game as-is, so for now I’m going to stick with the game at its current price with the autographs. After seeing a stock machine go for $14k at the Banning Auction, maybe this is a bargain

    And there it is !

    Quoted from transprtr4u:

    And there it is !

    To be fair I listed it before that happened. And I’m not gonna “play auction” & raise the price. Soooo…

    So here’s the thing - I love all my games and don’t really wanna sell anything, but I am getting some new games and am trying to be somewhat practical and do 1 in, 1 out. So - anything I list for sale is gonna be a “I don’t really wanna sell it” price…but if someone wants it - they get what they want and I’ll cry a little, but I’ll get over it. Maybe. I might regret this! We’ll see.

    #13 19 days ago

    I see nothing wrong with this price (or any for that matter).

    If someone wants Apu's autograph (come again included nonetheless) it is tough to put a price on that. eBay shows $100 to $120 for Hank's signature, the come again has to be worth at least another $100. Each of the other signatures are "worth" the same ballpark. So value added to the right buyer.

    It would be a big stretch for me to justify the price. It appears to be a nice machine... I miss when this was reviled and I turned down the chance to buy in for $3000.

    I can easily see an impulse FU money Simpsons fan buy this.

    Seeing a lot of "I don't really want to sell this" ads lately. If you want to ask for way, way, way above market value, all you gotta do is claim that you don't want to actually sell it and then somehow it justifies the price. I wish all these cash grab posts would cut down on the hard sell and just list the facts and the price and stop with the personal stuff.

    "Yes, price is high - but this game means a lot to me & is in incredible shape & plays awesome. I’m even second guessing myself in listing it - but here it is, let’s see what happens."

    Does this actually make people want to buy it? To me it's like admitting that the game is way overpriced and that the buyer would have to be really gullible to buy it. How could you feel good about buying this when the seller is telling you it's overpriced in the ad? If you're going to ask for above market value, don't tell the buyer they're an idiot for paying it. Just list the price without comment.

    #15 19 days ago

    It’s a sweet machine for sure

    If I was into the Simpsons
    I be on my way all ready

    Too bad about the graffiti
    As was mentioned earlier

    Buy with confidence , rare hero games are in pristine condition

    Glws

    #16 19 days ago

    For me the only thing that should be added in the description is a honest description of the game, I don't give a toss why you want/need to sell it just describe it and put a price on it and i'll decide if its a good deal or not (which these days it never is lol)

    #17 19 days ago

    "Well it sold at banning auction for ..................is gonna be the new trend"

    It's true that getting anything with Hank Azaria related to Apu will never happen again. Another victim of the cancel culture.

    Hank wasn’t cancelled. He’s still a ton of voices on the show & his career is just fine.

    I don't ever remember this game being reviled. I mean, it has arguably one of the deepest rulesets of all time, and the playfield, though cluttered, is certainly original. Perhaps I missed the reviled time you mention, but I was there, and it escapes me completely...
