Item description

Truly a pinball players machine, and you won't find one in better condition! We bought this machine from an auction house, but it was in the hands of a collector for over 20 years. It was stripped to the playfield, and rebuilt from the ground up.

Every nut, bolt, screw was cleaned and replaced where needed. All lamps replaced with non-ghosting LEDs, new coils, pop-bumpers, etc. installed. Shopped about six months ago with very little play since. New premium pinballs installed.

Legs replaced with brand new ones, cabinet protectors installed, new Tales From the Crypt topper, and other mods installed. New pinball glass installed too. There is nothing for you to do but play it!

I'm going to update the listing to include the following details. Please see attached photos.

We want to critical about the machine and transparent. Our goal is happy buyers. We've been in the hobby for over 15 years, and are well known in the Atlanta/Birmingham area. Our reputation with Pinball folk is more important to us than making a few extra bucks.

See attached pix:

1.) We installed new ROMS from which also include an eprom memory chip. This eliminates the need for a battery backup at all. As you can see from the photos, all the boards are clean. No corrosion or other problems. Original ROMS are included with the machine in case you want to revert to them.

2.) The PF is super clean. Included photos of shooter lane, left and right flipper lanes, ramps, etc.

3.) The right side wall above the playfield needs some touch up paint.

4.) Right side of cabinet is super clean, and bright.

5.) Left side is bright and colorful, but does have a nasty scratch that needs touch up. This probably happened during a move in its past. No visible in our gameroom so we left it. Easy to do.

The machine isn't perfect, but you won't find a better one for this price. Let me know if you'd like more photos. Adding a few more to the main listing tonight as well, so check back there.

Some people love the theme, some (like me) don't care for it--but if you love playing pinball you will never tire of this challenging machine. Fast and fun.

It has been in our air-conditioned game room and lovingly cared for by a couple of pinball collectors since our purchase.

Game is located near Birmingham, Alabama on the ground floor. We can also ship the game via R&L Carrier or similar. But seller pays all shipping fees and a $100 fee for our wrapping it and prepping for transport. We've owned over 20 games, and shipped many of them so we are familiar with how to safeguard things.
