This was way too cool! Mine was not in a box, but I got it 2 weeks ago! And I'm lov'in it!
Noticed the YouTube vid is up and running. There is 17 cuts.
Here is link for 1 of 17..you can go from there.
Click on his account to see the other videos. Not all 17 are uploaded yet. At least I can't find them.
I guess I didn't ready the thread very closely, I had thought it was being sold by Elvira herself. Still congrats to you on the sale of your NIB, that takes a lot of patience to hold on to something that long without opening it I know I couldn't have done it lol
Wow! He cuts away like.....well, at least a few grand with just 2 or 3 swings with knife in the second video. Gives me the chills just looking at that. Much respect!
Love the way that claw near the start button looks 3D in the second pic! Really pops!
Quoted from spfxted:
Were the boards and everything A-OK?
All of the boards were perfect.
Quoted from underlord:
The amount of money gone just by opening her up boggles the mind. But thank you mysterious buyer and Robbie Winter for sharing this glorious loss with us.
I'm really happy it went to a person/family who would really appreciate the machine. They already own a SS machine, and have had it for about 15 years (he states this in one of the videos). It's their favorite machine and as such, wanted a perfect one. It wasn't about the money or taking a loss after opening it. It was about having a beautiful game that they loved and being able to play and enjoy it for many years.
I love how he looks at the modesty stickers and says "I don't know what these are?"
His wife (?) holding the camera can actually be heard laughing at him in the early 'just opened' videos, and his kid looked entirely ashamed that his dad was shooting these videos in #2. That's a downer. Enjoy with the man!
Watched a bunch of these... obviously a guy who will appreciate this machine (he already has one!).
Things that made me chuckle:
Word count on number of times he says "pristine" = 754
Things that made me cringe a bit:
How close he was swinging his hand near the cabinet with that box cutter!
Was holding my breath when i thought he hadnt latched the backbox
Somewhat awkward method for installing the legs
Cool vid- thanks for sharing!!!
What strange, though, is that picture shows the actual bar already on the front of the pin. I don't think they usually came that way. The actual bar would be packed in the box, not already attached. The bar was not attached on this SS. Perhaps they did it differently for MB?
That MB has some leg wrinkle...perhaps it was taken out/put back in.
I bought a lot of games nib back then and that era of pins all had the lock bar attached.
Weren't those factory red batteries that seldom leaked Rayovac Carbons?
18-years on this game without a leak is amazing compared to Alkalines.
Anyone know if modern Rayovac Carbon Zinc batteries like in the link below are basically the same?
