Well...with only 2 1/4 AMP fuses...I think that's going a little overboard. Only coil sleeves for flippers needed....rebuilding is overrated. I guess I'm cheap enough to do the research and save the money, but hey, 3 people have already purchased....so there's that

That's about $30 worth of stuff. I wouldn't say that a guy who ordered his own bulbs and leg levelers from Marco or wherever is being "cheap". The vendor is not adding any value to the the stuff by packaging it together.

You're paying an extra $60 or $70 for what? So you don't have to look up some bulbs and leg levelers on a pinball website. $60 for 5 minutes of work.

It's not even a good selection of repair parts. Two spare bulb sockets in a game that takes 4 different bulbs. Two frikkin 1/4 amp fuses, gimme a break.

Atlantis actually has a big rack of fuses that are not slo blo and not fast blo, I forget what they're called, uber-blo or medium blo or something.

they're expensive as fouque, like $15 each

On an unrelated note, a guy could probably make a fine living selling incredibly overpriced stuff to people who know nothing.

Like:

BLACK SHOE POLISH!!!!! EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO POLISH UP THOSE DUSTY OLD SHOES!!!!! ONLY $30 PER 3 OZ CAN!!!!!!

They are MDQ fuses, 16 of them. MDQ is a "Dual-Element" fuse.

You've just described the listings of all the pinball machines for sale on Ebay within a 50 mile radius of my house.

Are you "the person of importance"?

The $50k price tag is truly weird.

I guess the guy doesn't realize that a movie themed pinball game is a common thing, he thinks it's some kind of special promo item

They look like the short ones. Great if you want to put a piece of wood under the back ones.
