Yeah, this would have been long gone at 9600.

I wonder how this TC MM would compare to a HEP restore? I have never seen either in person.

TC does great work, but it simply does not compare to HEP work.

I'd prefer a HEP too, but nothing wrong with their work that I can see. I have a Scared Stiff they restored (years ago, so had plenty of play since).

I see unfinished ball guides and dirty hardware. Looks like original cabinet art though, which looks nice.

Over $1600 too much. Good luck with that.

Treasure cove used to be the best until HEP came into the picture.

12000 and reserve not met. I respect their work. A lot. I hope this new era does not wipe artists out of the trade.

This has been my biggest concern. Many have been gleefully trolling the flippers that the new era has hammered but the high end restorers have to also be seeing a reduction in business. I guess it depends on how many remakes there will be after MMr.

don't worry, there are still plenty of games out there that look like shit. maybe some lesser known games will finally be getting some love that deserve it and don't because of the AFMs, MMs, CCs, clogging up the line due to $$$$$ on the resell. Restoring might actually start being for LOVE of the game more than flipping profits.

When you restore a game, that costs 3x's more to restore it, than what the final value is. then you did it because you love the damn game.

HEP has gone on record as being utterly unworried and generally not giving two f---s about it, so I don't think it's a big deal.
