    Parents bought the pin NIB back in '79 and been set up in a house ever since (no receipt). Never routed.

    The good:
    - Particle Count display is bright. They might be stickers with numbers on them. I can't tell.
    - no playfield wear (amazing for a 35 year old game with a tiny ball bearing for a pinball)
    - Proton Pumpers, Reactor Bumpers all work 100%
    - flippers nice and strong
    - no shooter lane wear
    - no battery leak damage
    - had the legs chromed
    - all plastics flame polished
    - no flipper button wear
    - full LED's
    - shopped (wet paper towel)
    - box

    The bad:
    - there's a screw through the playfield (see pic)
    - instruction card wear
    - can't find rubber set, so has original rubber

    Willing to trade for half used bottle of Novus. Asking $10 obo. Willing to ship the game but prefer buyer sees/plays game first.

    Lots of PM's to go through. To the person who offered up a half eaten grilled cheese sandwich - let's talk. I'm kinda hungry right now.

    The grilled cheese offer fell through. Seems the buyer saw an image of Steve Richie in the toasted bread - decided to keep the sandwich.

    To sweeten the deal, I've upgraded the pin to LE (AAPLE) with one mod. Mod lights up when you are playing and then press the button on top of the cycle (like the 'Punch it' button on all the newer pins).

    New price to reflect typical LE increase - $3010 (batteries not included for light cycle or pin).

    Quoted from supercombo:

    PS - will this fit in a Honda Civic? Asking for a friend.

    You might have to remove the head to fit it in the glovebox.

    Lots of PM's to go through. To those who asked if I can ship with the legs on: no, I don't want to risk having it tip over during shipping.

    It's taking up too much space in my gamesroom. Need space for the new game I just picked up. Dropping the price - willing to trade for a copy of Star Wars The Phantom Menance on VHS.

    Updated pic to confirm it's a true LE (which was only available in Canada for some strange reason).

    Quoted from Lame33:

    Can you confirm that it is HUO? I'm guessing it got routed to grandma's house back in the day.

    See shooter lane pics. No routed game looks that good.

    Besides, do you know how much that puppy weighs once you load it up with 5 'D' batteries? No way my Fisher Price Handcart could handle it.

    Quoted from Gryszzz:

    Whole grilled cheese....with or without crust.
    PM sent.

    Sliced diagonally?
