Looking to sell or trade this, make some trade offers (+/-) but I'm thinking early SS b/w games or sys11. Its a nice BB & has no broken plastic anywhere & the PF still looks like new with the only small flaw being a tiny bit of typical wear at the ball drop spot. Backglass like new. Cabinet isn't perfect but not too bad either for a game this age. The moving/talking skull topper works perfectly. Eye flasher works, jaw moves up & down, & skull rotates back & forth. I also have the protective plastic cover for it but had to remove it to fit the game in my room. Oh & of course game works 100%, is well tuned, strong flippers, has new rubbers & bulbs, etc. Here is a link to pics...

Is that pop thingy on the left hand side broken on the bottom?

No it isn't broken, it is actually designed that way so that the ball can travel up that alley without firing the bumper. This really is a unique & good looking game. It's fun because there is nothing else quite like it that I've ever played.

I could go to Pinburgh, yes. Allentown is quite a bit further for me but I might travel that far for a good trade offer.

Robx46 is a great seller. Picked up this afternoon and it was a little better than described. Nice clean game and glad that I made the 5 hour round trip to get it! Love me some bone busters! Surprised these go for as low as they do, great theme, unique table layout, nice artwork...thanks!

Nice! Enjoy the game!...it's a hoot!

that's actually lower than normal price wise. i was offered $1400 for mine at the ohio show and turned it down. you rarely see them with the toppers, and if you do find a bone busters anywhere, they usually do not work fully.
when you do the proper ground mods, power mods, tweak everything and shop them to the fullest, the game play is really different and unique.

Good to hear about the price but I am holding onto this one for awhile. It's been on my want list for about two years and never could find one in even ok condition. They were all projects which I wasn't interested in. I normally wouldn't drive over 100 miles each way but there isn't exactly a million of these out in the marketplace.

Bone Busters Inc. sounds like the perfect name for a Pinsiders wives club.

Thanks for the kind words. It really is a nice BB & plays great. If I had more room &/or a higher ceiling (very tall game) there is no doubt it is a game that would fit great long term into a medium sized collection. But unfortunately I decided to let this one go a little sooner than I wanted to. Very unique game in many ways & it is pretty rare & there is a ton of cool stuff to look at on it.
I'm very happy it is going to somebody who really wanted one & plans to enjoy it for a while.

If you have any questions on the rules let me know because a couple things might be confusing at first. Also know that when it calls for headquarters you want to divert the ball left, moon st is right. Notice the 2 ways to do the skill shot as well. Give the rules in the manual a read too.

Yeah you are off the hook now! I think it found a good home though. I already miss having it around.
