Quoted from Agent_Hero:

This and the Mr. & Mrs. Pac-Man have been listed for months, on CL and Ebay. I wondered why Heat Wave has lasted so long since it seems to be a popular title. Paint pattern being incorrect seems like a minor complaint since it looks decent and it's not a crazy high price.

Agree. Offers on machines like that don’t usually last long on Craigslist.

Nice original condition on this 60 year old game.

Something weird about that Golden Bells BG

My game's main background is white not blue.
Here is typical BG with White.

The first review on IPDB says he had one with a white backglass and one with blue backglass.

I guess it could be due to fading, but all the Golden Bells games that I owned (2) and also played, all had the white background.
My current game's glass does have some Reds fading to pinkish but different shades of fade,
The white is just too uniform thruout to likely be due to fade.

Yes, faded for sure. Note the 500,000 on the backglass is white as well, yet the same shade of blue in the other backglass. Strange though how reds usually fade out more than blues, but this definitely is a fade issue. Must be the light blue color

#17357 81 days ago

I doubt it's due to fade. All the Golden Bells I've seen have had the white glass also. As mentioned above reds are usually the color most prone to fade.

I'm guessing it's like Rocket where some early production games had a different glass variation.

#17358 81 days ago

The light blue must have been super susceptible to a quick fade, because prior to this every Golden Bells
that i have seen was always a bright white background, and at same time some usual red fading
but those reds always tended to fade to various shades of light red or pink or tan.
The fact that the white is so uniform gives me some cause for suspension of blue to white fading.

The BG does look better with white background, makes the WMS logo and games name really pop out better.

Would need to see if Duncan Brown or Pacak or Sam Harvey
might have some press photos of the orgiinal game, even in B&W one should be able to tell if background is blue or white.

From ipdb flyer
its still hard to tell

But Based on the 500,000 and 50,000 scores, I might tend to agree that they might have been light blue on original games (samples/proto)
and maybe changed to white with regular production.

I believe a reproduction was made of this glass (Shay?). I wonder if it's white or blue.

I just checked Shay's website, and it is listed. However, at least on my computer "Rocket", "Golden Bells" and "Golden Gloves" are grayed out.

A bit pricey I think for a Golden Bells.

What to make of this? Same Aladdin’s Castle Machine, same picture. One at an estate sale in Glencoe Illinois and one for free in a 3rd floor apartment in Niles near Chicago. Serial killer in the apartment?

I'm guessing they will ask for a deposit to hold it for you and rip you off, but either way, yeah that's sketchy.

That would make sense. Bait you with the “Free” offer and then ask for a deposit for a machine they obviously don’t have.
