For sale: Wizard of Oz ECLE HUO, extremely low plays

Added: February 22nd, 2019 Ended: March 24th, 2019
Condition: HUO - Documented (Home Used Only)

Item description

For 2 months I've been deciding with pin has to go to make room for the Munsters. I've put countless hours into most of my machines making them perfect. Big Bang Bar, Scared Stiff, Playboy(s), Sexy Girl...so lots of sweat into those. And the others have personal meaning. So, the painful decision is that my perfect condition WOZ is the one to go. It is #660/1000 and truly looks like it just came out of the box. Absolutely no wear and it probably has less than 300 plays on it. (I can't tell because I updated the firmware.) We have a pinball night once a week, so it hasn't been played much more than that. If you are local, you can come by and check it out. Ivan (allentown pinfest) has seen my machines so he can vouch for how perfect they are.

I added mirror blades, which make a huge difference, and a few LEDS to brighten it up a little (in the balloon, trough, etc.) There also is a very cool shooter rod.

If you want it shipped, I've shipped with STI many times and they are awesome. Shipping would probably be $300-$450 depending on where you are.

Sad to see it go...but something had to be cut. Message me with any questions. Price is pretty set and you'll see I am pricing it below market, especially for a machine this perfect with a couple of hundred dollars of mods (blades, shooter, etc.). Has invisiglass and a shaker, of course.

also, let me know if you want any more pictures. It basically looks like every other ECLE WOZ that just came out of the box. I put a few other pics of my collection in so you can see how I take care of my machines.

thanks
tony

Does this have the latest LED boards?

+1 curious too!

#4 1 year ago

Wow, I would be all over this but my wife hates the Wizard of Oz and told me it would be kindling if one ever came into our house. GLWTS. Great price

#5 1 year ago

Good price

#6 1 year ago

That’s an interesting translite on Batman 66!

#7 1 year ago

I'm curious what the build date is and what light boards it has...... but more importantly what's the no doubt pin?

#8 1 year ago

Why anyone would buy a NIB Woz today, yellow brick, ruby red or otherwise and NOT this one is beyond stupid imo.

It's the same pin with a better direct print cab.

People hesitate to purchase ecle versions because they want the newest lightboards.

More importantly, what’s the one with the topless model on the side?

This. Having to change the light boards is costly in money and especially time.

Quoted from pcprogrammer:

I wouldn't say so. Its important to know which version of LED boards an ECLE has. The original 5v boards were prone to issues and by now all games with them should have exhibited the issue. Around Sept / Oct of 2013 JJP switched to 7.5v boards. Many owners of games with 7.5v boards, including myself, have never had an issue in over 5 years. I know of an on location WOZ in my area that was one of the first built. Boards were swapped to 7.5v years ago and the game has been fine now with thousands of plays. I wouldn't hesitate to buy an ECLE with 7.5v boards.

This is a great deal on an incredible game. I think the ECLE will always be the most desirable version of the game.

But didn't all the ECLE models have the 5v boards? I had a RR WOZ and it had the 7.5v boards, I never had any issues.

#15 1 year ago

Anything without 2.0 boards will be price depressed it seems that’s why people buy NIB. These were bought for what $6500 so still a great deal for the sellers.

#16 1 year ago

Btw OP please more details on No Doubt and the topless chick

Only games made from May of 2013 to around August of 2013 shipped with the original 5v boards. Games made in Sept / Oct 2013 started shipping with 7.5v boards.

As I mentioned most ECLE's have 7.5v boards and have never had an issue. Also, the $6500 price was only available for a limited of amount of time, then went to $7k, and $7500 before they started shipping.

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Most of the larger boards (including the painful to replace upper playfield board) have been replaced with the buffered versions. There were 2 different buffered versions, 5.5v and 7.5v. I was told by JJP that there was no reason to go to the 7.5v, as both of the buffered boards perform the same. Since I replaced those boards (approx 1.5 years ago), everything has been perfect. Before that, I had the common LED problem, which was super easy to diagnose by just using cat 5 cables and jumping out a board. JJP was great in getting me the replacements fast.

So..all is well now.

build date is 8/7/2013. most of the larger boards (as they failed) were replaced with the buffered version. It has been rock solid since I replaced them.

Here is a video (before it was 100% complete) of the NO Doubt pinball. It is a converted rolling stones machines. graphics are now complete and mirrored side blades added.

this is a sexy girl that I did a custom cabinet for, with Ann Pennington, the model on the machine.

Especially the upper playfield one! took a few hours. the rest are super easy. unplug a few wires and pop in the new board. Probably 10 min. Luckily, I replaced all the problematic ones with the buffered boards (even one that didn't fail), and it has solved the led problem.

Very tempting... wife would kill me lol!

#26 1 year ago

very good seller, have dealt with him before, really easy to work with.

#27 1 year ago

I really feel this is a great price for this game. New ones (if they are around) are over 8500-9k.
I wished I liked the theme otherwise I would be there.

I get the hesitation BUT i think its overblown. I've owned mine for years without any issues on 2nd gen lightboards.

If anyone is hesitating because of that, i wouldn't, this is a great deal.

#29 1 year ago

I replaced all my boards with the 5.5 buffer boards from jjp 3 years ago and have not had any issues since. I was told the exact same thing from jjp that acaciolo said. It was not the lack of volts becouse 7.5 volt boards where failing also. Something to do with static electricity that adding the small buffer board took care of this issue, probably what the 2.0 boards know have build in.

#30 1 year ago

Great price. Nice machine!

yup. JJP was super honest. I actually was going to spend a bunch of money to switch to 7.5v, and they told me there would be no difference. Once I replaced the bad boards with the buffers, my led issues would go away, which they did.
