    Picked up a non-working Wild Kingdom for $400 today. Wasnt told what was wrong with it but upon inspection I noticed a fuse was missing, and the power cord was braided together with wire nuts. This alone may be the problem as the unit is in great shape for its age. Fingers crossed.

    They also threw in 3 buckets of pinball parts for a Williams EM game (some of the playfield pieces in here have music notes on them. Anybody know what game this could be?) Based on the weight and variety im seeing in these buckets this has gotta be close to complete.

    Nice score! Congrats!
    I love my gun game.
    Wish we could add them to our collections on pinside.

    Thanks, I'm super excited. I first played an EM gun game recently at the Museum of Pinball in Banning, CA, and I've been wanting one ever since. It was located in Fontana, posted on OfferUp. The listing was just called "arcade game".

    You hit it the ad at the right time as well.
    They had it listed for $800 a little while ago which is too much and why no one bought it initially and then just cut the price in half.
    The added parts is a bonus and wasn't in the ad.
    Congrats man, look rad.

    Funny, I saw it when it was $800, asked him if he was open to offers, then offered $400 and he took it. The listing got changed after I had made the offer cause I wasn't 100% sure I was gonna pick it up.

    Thats really bizarre.
    I think it's a cool as hell pickup by the way, congratulations.
    I actively look for EM shooting games and just don't see them pop that often (at least in Arizona).
    I have 7 of them, plus a Shoot the Bear and all but two of them I had to bring in from out of state.
    I kind of feel like these things are sleepers in the hobby.
    Even the ones that are "common" are really not all that common and elusive to find.
