Available on eBay for $100k, I'm glad there is a generous return policy!

ebay.com link » Michael Jackson 1987 Chase Pepsi Arcade Pinball Machine From The Bad Tour Days

Several old topics on this one.

#2 4 years ago

Which game is this actually?

#3 4 years ago

wish I were closer.

#4 4 years ago

Here, buy a $100,000 pinball machine, but I'm only going to post 4 crappy pictures, two of which only show today's paper and the other two are exactly the same. Right.....

#5 4 years ago

For 100K I would think I would get more pictures of it before I bid...

Exactly...

Lack of pictures usually means... nothing but trouble.

#8 4 years ago

Looks like the red and blue in the Pepsi cabinet graphics are faded. Perhaps a discount would be available?

Edit: In the item description it notes the fading and some other defects. I never took time to read the description the first time I looked at the auction.

#9 4 years ago

I see a white "ghost" under a sheet in the background. Creepy?

#10 4 years ago

He rated it a 5 on a 1 to 10 scale. POS would be my guess. Good reason for no pics.

#13 4 years ago

It appears to have the same playfield layout as Data East's "Laser Wars".

Michael Jackson apparently did all of the callouts & voice work for this Pepsi pin.

More pics & info here:

This is AWESOME! Maybe he'll trade me straight up for my High Speed 2....

#15 4 years ago

Thank God! I was waiting for this to finally come up for sale!

I would love to hear the callouts on this one....

HEE HEEEEEEEEEE!
SHAMONE!
DAD GOMMIT!
OWWWWWWWW!

...and my favorite: "Here, kid...you want a lollipop?"

#18 4 years ago

THOSE PICTURES!!!!! TERRIBLE!!!!! WHATS FOR SALE ??? a newspapeR???

#19 4 years ago

willing to bet the playfield art is the same.. so you've basically got a laser war with some cabinet art/backglass, and a rom with special MJ callouts. $2k by christmas

#20 4 years ago

How does someone listing a game this valuable have such a lack of correct grammer.

#21 4 years ago

I found a few more pics elsewhere on the web. Not much better, but the playfield is shown a little (lots of glass reflection):

"When I play that game, sometimes I close my eyes and imagine I'm playing Macaulay Culkin....", he said.

#23 4 years ago

delusional.

hope he get a good camera with the money and learn how to use it.

#24 4 years ago

There was so much plastic in Michael Jackson when he died, that he had himself recycled into this pinball machine so "kids could play with him forever."

#25 4 years ago

Did MJ actually own this game? Was it at Neverland?

#26 4 years ago
Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

Define "Neverland" as a part of MJ's body.

#27 4 years ago

I love the 80's porn stashes......Is that Baba Booey in the background?

#28 4 years ago

*high voice*

"I used to love it when Bubbles and I would have pinball time. I would play with the silver balls, and he would play with mine."

I can't bare to think of how many kids he taught to nudge while they were playing that pinball.

I wrote to the seller. Here's what i got:

Dear hollywuud8,

Hello, as a pinball and Michael Jackson fan, I am very interested in this auction, and think it is awesome that you have this. Can you post some detailed pictures of the playfield and backglass?

Thanks so much. Have a Merry Christmas

- pinballwizardmitch
ear pinballwizardmitch,

hi pinballwizardmitch. yes we can get more pictures. remember this is a estate auction. we have to drive to where the woman lives to get pictures. we are doing this for free. on our own time. we can take pictures of the out side of the machine, but with the play field the lady is trying to decide to put pictures up or not. on one hand, she thinks who ever buys it, wont want the pictures of the playfield all over the internet. but on the other. she knows people want to see it. right now she is not putting pictures of the play field up. that's what we got to respect, she make's the decisions on these estate items we have been selling for her. and we just say yes mam or no mam. she sold the new old stock major havoc arcade kit ( to a collector in a country in Europe I cant think of right now, he was happy to get it.) and quiet a few other arcade related items. and every one has been happy with them.

This seems too weird, just like mj would have wanted

Quoted from beelzeboob:

Actually I think his favorite line was "what would you do for a Klondike bar"

#35 4 years ago

Now we'll never know if it had the original playfield art, or a mocked up one. Does this woman not realize she's interfering with pinball history?

#36 4 years ago

It's probably just a regular Laser War playfield so the owner does not want to post the pics, knowing that if any Jackoff fan sees that, they won't be interested at all.

I think it deserves a $95,000 discount due to the faded cabinet-GLWS

new old stock major havoc arcade kit

Pretty cool a Major Havoc NOS came up in the community. Very popular title.

#39 4 years ago

Not wanting to post pics of the playfield? If that's not a serious red flag nothing is. Its blown to hell are not even there. GLWS

Can I see a shooter lane pic please?

I heard that Michael slept inside the cabinet while on tour, because he thought the magnetic fields would keep him young!!! I heard this from a friend of a Roadie's uncle's brother's chimpanzee's sister, so I'm sure it's true.

#43 4 years ago

Does the other side of the cabinet come with color?
Why would anybody care if their future game had pictures of the playfield on the internet? If I spent 100k on a game and I was proud of it, I would want the world to see it.

Like vid said, the playfield is probably just a stock LW. Either that, or it's in awful shape. Maybe both.

Nope, Michael had the machine bleached in the late 80s.

Judging by the grammar and typos, I can only assume that the seller is Honey Boo Boo. I sent him a message that I'd pay $10,000 cash tomorrow if he's interested. I just want to see the interesting response I get back. It should be good for a chuckle.
