I bought this game from a nice/generous Pinsider in MI who brought it to Expo in Chicago. A very helpful/generous friend brought it back to Minneapolis for me. I wanted to transform it into a “Promium” and I worked hard and spent a bit of coin to do it. It had just 152 plays on it when it arrived. I’ve put less than a hundred more plays on it myself. Truly, I’ve spent more time modding/dialing it than playing it. The playfield is as you would expect for sub-300 plays. Colors are vivid/gorgeous. There is no wear anywhere, but it does have a some discrete dimpling from multi-ball action. (The purpose of the glarey photos was to reveal the surface of the PF as much as possible. At least a few dimples are visible in them.) Cabinet and backbox art is flawless, as is the armor, coindoor, and the translight. I am waiting on one additional component to the Total Lightshow mod and I will hand deliver or mail it to the buyer when it arrives around Christmas. The game plays fine without it, but you will need it for the full “Total Lightshow” effect.

As to pricing, I figure a "great deal" for a HUO game produced less than a year ago with less than three-hundred plays is the retail price minus twenty percent or the "street" price minus fifteen percent, give or take a little depending on how desirable the title is. The street price of MET PRO is now $5.3K. There is no "street" price for mods, so I think retail price minus twenty-five percent is fair. (This might in fact be generous, since just about no one discounts a color DMD when he/she includes it in a sale pin.) The mods here cost over $1400. So, $5300 - 15% = $4505; $1465 - 25% = $1095. $4505 + $1095 = $5600. If you're a MET lover, you'll know the value of these mods, but I can certainly give you an itemized list if you’re wondering how I arrived at that total. These mods are about as far from frivolous as mods can be, and in some cases require much labor to install. Total Lightshow, for instance, took two solid days to install, and the leg braces were no picnic. Here’s a chance to get yourself a low-plays “Promium” and leave the work to someone else!

Easy load out. Game is on the ground floor just feet from the back door. From there it’s onto a deck, down two stairs, and then forty feet to the driveway. Cash only. No trades. I prefer a local sale, as inspecting the game first hand *before* you buy is important to me. Thanks for looking.
