I'm thinking of sending my players off to be custom painted like these Chexx players:

ebay.com link » Super Chexx Bubble Hockey Custom Player Painting And Game Decaling

My first thought is USA vs Brazil or USA vs Mexico, but I'd almost consider a classic Premier League rivalry as well. Kinda want some iconic uniforms/players...maybe Cristiano Ronaldo/Lionel Messi? Any ideas for a good 3 forwards, 2 defenders, 1 goalie lineup if I go the custom painted players route?

I had them paint USSR/USA, after the classic olympic games, for a friend of mine. (and I think that was the first Chexx game, if I am not mistaken). they came out awesome. He has a house near lake placid. definitely pricey!

USSR doesn't have much of a soccer presence...mine are soccer players! What's an iconic soccer matchup?

without a doubt: Liverpool and Manchester United
one of the most bitter rivalries in all of sports

I have a box of parts including spare players and ball eject solenoid for super kixx version. Ball ejects are super unobtainium and games that have this go out makes it a giant paperweight.

Also have a full decal set for the 2002 Budweiser World Cup edition if anyone is looking to restore theirs.

As for teams, USA vs Mexico would be my suggestion. Classic rivals and top two teams in CONCACAF. Would be best for resale as Mexico has a huge and passionate fan base. Would find a few more buyers with that matchup.

Good luck! Fantastic game....I have had two over the years.

Thankfully, my ball ejector works great. I just need the actual ball. I don't suppose you have one, Blitzburgh? I'm sure someone else can use your spare eject solenoid, all of the searches I've found for info on this game have a few people saying they want one. Might be a good part to reproduce/3D print? Mine also didn't have the light fixture at the top of the dome, but I found a neat light at Target that is motion-activated, battery powered with LED's and it's about the same size as the fixture was. Kinda cool because if you walk by it when the room is dark, it kinda begs you to play it.

NY Cosmos and Chicago Sting!

Didn't Pele play for the Cosmos? At least there'd be a recognizable name--for the older crowd anyway. I feel like there are a lot more iconic historical matchups for painting hockey players on a Chexx than soccer players on a Kixx.

Yep, Pele did play for the Cosmos in the twilight of his career.

The simple one for your KIXX might just be USA vs Mexico

I make Kixx balls if you are interested from a mold of an original ball.
