    FS: Cactus Canyon HUO

    Added: September 15th, 2021 Ended: September 24th, 2021
    Condition: HUO - Undocumented (Home Used Only)

    Price

    $ 14,000 (OBO)

    Open for offers

    Item description

    PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR BEST OFFER PRIVATELY IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS IS WORTH.

    Ok I just got in an HUO Cactus Canyon. It’s gorgeous, only flaw appears to be some lifting at a couple legs in the cabinet art (common on these) and a little bit of art missing at the seam of the front right cabinet.

    After all the bullshit with my Monster Bash ad, I’m basically just trying to gauge interest in this era of the remake. Not gonna bother posting any pics at this time.

    Again, this is an HUO original Cactus Canyon in fantastic shape. If you have interest in this game, want to see pics, and want to make an offer, send me a message. If you’d rather get a remake, please do so. If you are angry about rising pinball prices and somehow think it’s my fault, I can’t really help you.

    If you want to make a combo deal for this and the HUO original Monster Bash, I’m open to that as well.

    Location NYC zip 10001.

    No issues here AT ALL w/ Ad; but I certainly find it strange/desperate almost. If you wanna sell just be sincere & post an actual Ad with clear description & pics pretty straight forward & simple to do I don't get it? 18K seems high I could get CGC LE & have room left over to purchase a really old used pair of Bea Arthur panties.

    I’m incredibly strange and desperate. I just think posting pics or bothering to type out a detailed description for the price cop force would be pointless. It’s an HUO original cactus canyon, either you are interested or you aren’t.

    If you are, please send me a private message. I don’t see how I could be any more honest or sincere.

    I think it’s cool to see any HUO BLY/WMS game - there wasn’t much of a HUO market back then so it’s rare for any title.

    I remember walking past a line of CP, MM and CC at my local distributor and thinking I’d love to have them, but $3500 was just too much $$$.

    But it has issues as you described so pics are needed. A game can be HOU and still be in shit condition.

    Lol - those aren’t “issues”. The decals on CC were all prone to leg damage.

    #12 41 days ago

    Here’s something cool I’ll post; it’s a folder that was included with the game, with some really cool VERY High quality glossy photos of CC, and some flyers for the new hotness, RFM. I guess the distributors were really pushing pin2K, since real pinball was dead at that time.

    The guy I bought this from remembers buying the game, from a distro in jersey. He said that he remembers the guy pushing him toward Revenge HARD, telling him old school pinball was old news. He is an old school guy and had zero interest, but he was really attracted to CC. I think we can all agree he made the right move!

    What game # is it? (Last 3 digits of serial #)

    Can CCC still be purchased somewhere?

    I think the difficult decision for most people is that we don’t know anything about the ruleset enhancements (or any enhancements for that matter) on the upcoming CGC game.

    No plaque sadly. Just the folder which I thought was pretty cool.

    This game was made the same week as my HUO monster bash, which I also thought was pretty cool.

    What distributor? MM was offer at close out price like 4-5 weeks after it was released for $1695 at Sunbelt and HA Franz. I can confirm this because I still talk to the old school distributor reps on a regular basis. I fairly certain CP and CC were offered around the same price. I was in high school. Dad didn’t buy any of these titles, so I can’t go find old sales invoices. Though I do have a sales receipt from the summer of ‘92 (I was 10) where pops bought a beta tested TAF for $2045.

    Oh, and Levi, so for hijacking your ad, GLWS and all that jazz.

    Technically this is not a FS thread.

    It's really a private auction without the eBay fees.

    He can't reasonably price a game if there's any possibility he could squeeze more from a buyer.

    I misspoke - it was CP, MB and CC in their showroom. Yes - it was Sunbelt in OKC. I was friends with the receptionist (Diana?) and called her almost every day. The only thing I got on closeout was a CV for $1750. I was in my 20s so I couldn’t afford the new $3500 games. The most I ever spent was $2000 on a used MM during that time.

    For the life of me, I can’t remember her name. She was Scott Milner’s wife. I think the MB and CC were there the day Phil sold it to Commercial Music? I talk to Sam Ball regularly. I’ll have to ask him. Hard to believe it’s been 20 years now since we’ve had a coin-op distributor in OKC!

    Kind of an issue with all these ads with super high priced games listed obo.. really feels more like an auction w/out any transparency. I don’t see how to stop it but it also seems weird given that Pinside doesn’t allow auction style for sale ads.

    #36 41 days ago

    My issue is ads like this with no pics (Rockland Pinball style) ..is it screws up the archives.

    10 yrs from now when this machine is worth 30k we will want to see prices and condition via pics and description of previous sales to judge the new prices and it helps us put up reasonable offers or walk away.

    You have made yourself part of the pinball community so be a better part of it and help the history of the archives.
    I think my rant is over

    I've been around since the late 90s and have seen plenty of HUO CCs over the years. Hell, one buddy owned two for a while. Hint: they all look the same. Imagine a new CC, add in minor cabinet decal wrinkling around the legs and a bit of visible wear on the ramps/shooter lane and there you go. Plenty of pics of other HUO CCs if you need to see something.

    #39 40 days ago
    Quoted from spikelou2:

    Add says obo .. how is this an auction

    Here's how.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR BEST OFFER PRIVATELY IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS IS WORTH

    OP is soliciting private bids to determine how much he'll sell it for.

    The OP is not a noob. He knows what he could sell it for. What he doesn't know is the absolute most he could muster.

    Setting an $18k reserve and asking for offers is a sealed auction.

    #40 40 days ago

    There are plenty of games for sale right now on pinside with a price *and* Or best offer. What is the big deal about Crazy Levi doing it?

    #41 40 days ago
    Quoted from RTS:

    OP is soliciting private bids to determine how much he'll sell it for.

    Only an auction if he updates all who contacted him with the highest current offer and solicits at least one more round of offers, e.g. bidding. Otherwise it's just picking the best offer received, which is OBO. As written I'd say it's OBO.

    #42 40 days ago
    Quoted from metallik:

    Hey, I resemble that guy!

    It was fun while it lasted but the second one left almost exactly a year ago today. I hated selling the last one but home remodeling was calling and that one game paid for a lot of hardwood flooring. Given what I got for mine with all the pinflation in the last 12 months I don't think Levi is far off on his asking price. GLWTS!

    Levi I don't know if this helps or not but I got zero interest on Pinside when I sold mine (which surprised the crap out of me). All the games I sold last year actually went via Craigslist or FB.

    if you want to get technical about the word, maybe. Nothing new here as I pointed out earlier, just an issue with all these ads setting a ridiculous price and then adding OBO. It's a really fine line between a for sale ad and a non-transparent silent auction.. everyone submits offers .. ie "bids".

    Levi isn't doing anything anyone else hasn't been already. Just seems like sellers are skirting the pinside rules a bit. But what do I care, I'm not even sure why that rule is in place. Maybe it's just irritating seeing all these ads and how greedy people have become in the hobby.

    The rule's in place to prevent full-blown auctions here, and it's working fine.

    What's happening here is more like a silent auction.

    As for greed, there's already a ton of threads about pricing. I'll never condemn anyone for not wanting to leave money on the table. If the games are worth $$$ then they're worth $$$. Proceeds from sold games go towards buying new games, so no reason to give anything away unless it's going to a buddy.

    #45 40 days ago

    I’ve sold dozens of games here and always pay my pinside listing fees when I do, unlike TONS of others who always seem to sell their games “elsewhere” after listing them here.

    You want to bitch about moochers and freeloaders and “rule skirters” you are in the wrong place.

    I really don’t understand what you guys are bitching about. It’s not an auction, it’s a sale. Only a moron would “start low” on a rare piece like this.

    When you guys get your hands on an HUO Cactus Canyon, you can show me the “right” way to do it. Till then I’ll just do it my way.

    This thing plays like new by the way, it’s amazing.

    Metallik, I really don’t understand why you have such a hard on for me today. You’ve accused me of being a price cop, and a “rule skirter,” and neither of these things are remotely true. You sure you don’t have me confused for someone else? You’ve known me for like 20 years bro, and you are carrying on like some common noob! Come on Larry, what’s the deal ?!

    Not sure why this ad is catching heat, Have you guys looked at the market? I don't think I have ever scrolled through and seen so many $10k+ ads. I hope you sell this quickly before the bubble burst.

    #47 40 days ago

    Is this from the same source as the HUO MB you had for sale?

    Why wasn't this post moderated? I got banned from a thread for no worse than that.

    This ad reeks of trying really hard to act like dont care, but knowing you'd be lucky to get half this with the remake imminent.

    Sure there will always be interest in originals, but pretty niche market and I'd imagine most with deep enough enough pockets that were interested would already have one.
