>>added another 22 pics of game<<

One of the customers of the shop I sell my antiques and collectibles at has asked me for assistance in selling his pinball. I was expecting some "D list" EM title, but you could have heard a pin drop and my jaw hit the floor when he told me it is a HOME USE ONLY, ONE OWNER, MONSTER BASH, with less than 260 hours of play time. From day one, he has covered it with a sheet to prevent cabinet fade, and he said it has the Cliffy protectors. I got the feeling, to steal a line from the movie Ferris Buelller's Day Off, he rubs it down with a diaper...lol.
He is moving and would like to sell the game prior to his move.

Obviously this type type of quality comes at a priming, he is looking for $13999(orig asking price) NOW ASKING 11k. If interested, let me know and we can arrange you to check it out if you are interested. Game is located in Long Island NY.

You may wish to correct the asking price.

#3 6 years ago

I'll take it for $1399

#4 6 years ago

$1,400 ha

#5 6 years ago

I did...lol...dumb ipad!

#6 6 years ago

Beautiful machine but seems like his timing is really bad.

#7 6 years ago

Yeah, the timing might not be ideal, but I figured no harm in my trying to help him sell it. I thought there may be somebody who wants an original version in amazing shape, regardless if a remake is made or not.

#8 6 years ago

Very interesting indeed.

I know someone that may act like they want to buy it and then back out after it's all said and done if you want his email.

What does someone not buying one of your pins have to do with this FS thread?

Whatever you do, don't tell him that a game in similar condition sold in Colorado a few weeks ago for $3500 (or maybe $3000, I forget).

Kidding aside, $14k is a tough ask in the current market. I suspect most looking for a primo MB are going to wait until Expo and see if that's the next remake from PPS (AFM and MB seem like the best candidates).

I would have been interested in this game between $10k-$12k last fall, but not now (I have an MB restoration in progress).

Factory installed. You can find them on CV as well.

I imagine there is wiggle room in his price for any serious buyers wanting a top notch original version

How is it possible that this still comes up?

For the 8,000th time in 10 years - these games shipped with the lock bar brackets.

Please. Let's see how MMr works out first. If you want a mint HUO MB here it is. Or maybe possibly one day a repro might happen. GLWS.

#19 6 years ago

I have HUO MB also even if one day they do make it again you still can't beat the Williams MB

I'm sorry, but the only people that will ever be able to tell the difference between the real deal or a refake are those that are seriously into the hobby. When a Mustang drives by, can the you tell if it has a V6 or V8 in it? Most likey not, unless your into 'Stangs. And yes, you can beat William MB everyday of the week with pricing like this. It's called supply and demand. With guys like this trying to gouge us with this ridiculous pricing, Rick will see that need and fill it with affordable MBr's.

Quoted from E_N_3:

"Wiggle room", come on already. His making 10X off his original buying price. If this "friend" of yours bought it NIB and has to sell it due to moving, then why so high of a price. My best friend picked up a HUO one owner 250 plays for 12.5K before the refake came to fruition. With the potential of A title games being remade, you have to be a little more aggressive in formulating a starting price. I learnd this the hard way with me selling my MM.

#21 6 years ago

Did you mean total plays or hours of play? Sorry, just confused but there is a big difference.

Dude, stop with the air quotes. I never said he was a FRIEND. In my opening post I clearly stated he is a customer of the shop I sell some of my stuff at and he asked if I could help him sell it. It's HIS game, HIS asking price, and HIS decision what to do with his game and what profit margin he wishes to make with his game, My comment of saying that there is likely "wiggle room" was based on the conversation I had and the vibe I got from him about his price.

I get it, he wants a lot of money, but that's his peragative, and maybe he might get stuck with the game, or wind up dropping the price way down. But I am simply HELPING somebody sell their game....and I get attacked? I swear it is situations like this that sour so many people to the community and the boards.

#24 6 years ago

A fool and their money .....

#25 6 years ago

PM sent to the OP..

#26 6 years ago

A seller can ask whatever they want... regardless of profit margin, etc.... a buyer can either buy or pass. People who whine about asking prices are just plain annoying, if you ask me. Nobody cares if YOU think the asking price is to much...someone with "a pair" can make up there own minds!!! GEEEESH!!!

Most people that would know are people that are really intoo the hobby just like with cars also ,I am one of them that would know all about pinball and mustangs

Boy, I'd love to be stuck with a CQ MB that looks that pristine. Good luck with the sale - that pin is a beauty!

#30 6 years ago

For the data hounds, I just sold a HUO MB in slightly worse shape (cab dings, few thousand plays). Had a lot of interest and a relatively quick final sale in the 9K range. I guesstimate this one is 10Kish due to the better cab, maybe a bit more if seller is patient. The ask isn't unreasonable but does leave plenty of room to come down.

RFM was the same way. I just re-decaled mine and removed the hasp brackets. It looks so much nicer.

#32 6 years ago

No need for cliffy protectors on HUO games like this with such little play. Just covers more art

#33 6 years ago

Yep, I took the cliffy off mine and put a Mantis protector in. We beat on it for over a thousand plays and no damage to the scoop. The protector itself was starting to get beat and eventually would need replacing...

#34 6 years ago

$13999 and no ColorDMD, PinballBulbs LED's, or mirror blades? C'mon

What I find funny is that you consider $8k "affordable" while busting his balls.

#38 6 years ago

Spoke to the seller today, and he is cool with dropping the price, by $2k, down to $11k for a SERIOUS buyer!!!!!!
First come, first served.

Is a serious buyer as apposed to just a buyer one who is lacking sense of humour? good luck with sale

What is he selling a boat!? Who measures a pin by hours of play? At 250 hours and 3.5 to 5 minutes per game we're talking 3-4000 plays.

Just having a little fun, don't shoot me. Nice pin.

Any video or additional pics of the playfield with the glass pulled?

Are you interested? I see you would be coming a long way, so you would obviously want to make sure your mind is at ease before mKing that drive, which makes all the sense in the world, and I am totally happy to help get you to a point where your mind is at ease prior to jumping in the car.
I can get you as many additional pics as needed(simply specify what ones you want- as originals covered a good deal).

Thanks for the interest!

#45 6 years ago

Might be best to just part it out. Those old machines never hold value.

#46 6 years ago

Now it is only three thousand dollars overpriced

#47 6 years ago

It's a beauty, that's for sure.

Low play, perfect condition HUO will catch a buyer, but seems market for higher end B/W titles have come down a bit. Besides, 14 grand starting price dropping to 11 grand isn't seeming like a deal anymore like it did up to a year ago.
