Item description

My ideal situation is to trade this along with Stargate (listed on Pinside)for a more expensive machine (3K realm) than either alone, plus cash. I need to get rid of one, asking $2500 for Stargate, both of these are in fantastic shape, better than players condition. I realize I'm on the high end for both and that is strictly due to their clean and undamaged condition. Great examples of both titles. I am negotiable.

Popeye
Appears to have been shopped before I got it. it's pretty pristine.

If you are looking for a beautiful and family friendly title for your game room, this will fit the bill.

A couple of stickers were poorly applied. Might be able to be fixed, but I have a sheet of NOS stickers that would go with it.

You will be hard pressed to find another one in this great of shape. No cabinet fade, (may have been repainted/ new decals but I can't tell. I say that because it's in such nice shape.). Very few scuffs, no dents. Excellent playfield, beautiful translight and backbox. This machine plays 100% with no errors. Beautiful DMD, great sound. This is the pinball machine that time has been kind to.

The history I know is that it was given away as a raffle prize at a factory in Northern Indiana in the early 2000's, the man that won it didn't really want it or play it, so it became a basement fixture and sat in a basement. Several years later, the winner sold it to a coworker for his "man room" where it essentially sat untouched for years. Elkhart Pinball may have been the seller of this machine as it has a keychain from there. I don't actually know and neither did the owner. It has the manual and schematics. The battery has been replaced with the AA holder.

I have enjoyed this game, not as much as my kids though. It is a fun family machine.
Popeye is fairly challenging with lots of rules. It's a big machine and that changes the game and offers new challenges.

If you are an avid player or collector, you know of the itch to scratch is there and these are quality games. If you are a family man just looking for a family friendly game for the game room, these are great options.

Contact me with any questions and for more pictures. I'll help in any way I can.

I am not an old hand, I'm an enthusiast of a few years. If I missed some pertinent info, please ask.

Wow, is that what the sides and front of the cabinet are supposed to look like (with colors intact)? That thing is gorgeous.

GLWTS!

Great game! Board nice and bright to help follow the ball.

The playfield is still all incandescent. I haven't done anything at all as far as lighting goes.

Looks like a fun game. Wonder why it doesn't get much love by collectors?

I think it is not a well known theme. It probably will be interesting for a baby boomer.
