Looking to sell my HUO Prototype SWE1. The game was acquired from Duncan Brown, one of the game designers. Duncan was nice enough to sign the underside of the playfield for me and I even have his original purchase invoice from Williams. This was the last prototype (#25 of 25) to to leave the Williams MEL before they shut their doors for good. It is in beautiful condition and has about 600 plays on it. It is 100% original and works perfectly! Comes with the preliminary and production manuals, schematics, and NOS plastic set. Located in Aurora, IL. Asking $3800 or trade for your ??? Let me know what you have to offer!

Nice looking machine. Great documentation too.

Gosh, what a nice game!!! Amazing shape and a great story. I love the music on this pin.

#5 6 years ago

Great ad, photos and details. Thing is certainly sharp. To far to drive for me, but someone is gonna get a great buy.

#6 6 years ago

Thanks guys! Yeah this is a really nice game with some great history attached to it! It is going to make someone very happy!

What were the differences between the prototype and the production version?

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Protos have a saucer instead of a rollover above the pop bumpers. Also, some of them have a pink outline around the characters on the playfield. I think those are the major differences.

#9 6 years ago

Well depending on how early the prototype was would depend on what differences it would have. Obviously earlier protos would be more different than later ones. This being the last MEL game it is very close to a production model. If you go to pinball2000.de they have a page that lists some of the differences in proto vs. production. Everything listed there this game has (except the extra saucer kick out in the upper right corner). The upper saucer was eliminated about halfway through the prototype process (They had issues early on where the ball would keep bouncing back into the saucer from the pops, so they eliminated it). So other than having a production playfield (which the last 10 or so protos did), all the differences they list are on this game including some differences not mentioned (like hand cut lower in-lane plastics, etc.).

Not all protos had this. Only about half did.

Just out of curiosity, do they run on the same software (the proto and production models)?

#14 6 years ago

Yes, they do. This one is running the latest software. Duncan actually told me that this is the game he used to develop the latest code on (kind of a cool fact).

Happy New Year bump! This pin would be a great way to kick off the year!

#16 6 years ago

Game has been sold and is on it's way home with the new owner! Thanks to all who inquired about it!

#17 6 years ago

Thanks Nelly! Yes, now in its new home safe and sound, just need to clear a spot to set her up. For those who we're wondering a pinball2000 does fit in a Honda Fit - thanks mot for your tips in how to orient the game to get it to fit in the Fit!

Congrats on the sale and congrats to new owner!

#19 6 years ago

That is freaking awesome it fits in a FIT!

#20 6 years ago

Congrads on sale . I think I may have under priced the one I have for sale.

#21 6 years ago

Any chance you guys could tell us what the game originally sold for???? Curious what Williams sold a game to an employee for. Not sure Williams or anyone would care since they have been out of business for 16 years.
