FYI shay makes a backglass for this, unless you are wanting original.

Good luck in the hunt.  Fun game. :)

m not all that well informed on LETGO>COM
 AND if BUM says the price is outrageous, I will take his word for it. After all BUM is a well known member here and is known for his incredible work with the "Left handed pinball players" charity which teachs young children how to play pinball left handed!
A true asset to the site!  :)
thanks for the tip, BUM, Im looking for a reasonable priced one because Im planning a complete rebuild including new playfield. This makes spending a boatload of money not possible!

thanks. :) just another reason why i hate LetGo overall. the cheesiest/cheapest of all buyers, added with the over-moronic of seller listings. :P

the playfield appears to be nice. the backglass is crap, the cabinet straight up sucks...termites, road rash, working condition, parts missing? all have to be seen live. 200 bucks, and i might go look at it, if it was walking distance. ;D

add to that, it's stored in the elements next to uncle jed:

ok jeeze. Ive gotta pass on this one. A pin with a sanded to bare wood head {I think}, rest of cabinet served two tours in Viet Nam in the !st Air Cavalry, and the most mysterious of all, a playfield that looks like the kickout holes have no wear. How can that be? It "t'aint" anywhere near normal and very suspicious.
 Thanks guys for running that down for me, and of course K7 who wants to rag on the whole ad, but Im gonna have to pass on that one.
 I believe Im coming into possession of a Wade Krause playfield for this game. Thing about these games is they pretty mush ALWAYS have a beat to crap playfield especially around those kicker holes. So a solid cab without bugs is really important, as far as the backglass goes , it would be nice if it didnt have to be replaced but thats asking for a miracle. Anyone who would put the cost of a repro backgalss would have to have a game thats really really nice which translates into BIG DOLLARS. That kinda knocks me out for the same reasons.
 Those guys in Canada that are always on Ebay have one that is not restored, wont go into its condition but it isnt restored and they want 3995.00 for it. I mean whats up with that kind of bs?
 Ok again thanks for looking you guys, what Im looking for is the pretty good cabinet hopefully decent backglass and a playfield that is uglier than Roseanne Barr.

that playfield doesn't look like it belongs with that machine, but the other points of interest seem to match up to the other shots.

i've had a perfect 10 backglass, perfect 10 playfield, all in a 3 cabinet.


but i can't remember a condition 4 backglass, a -1 to possibly a +3 cabinet, showing off a 9.5 playfield. :)

yeah you get what Im saying. and with that particular title the playfields were always the thing that went way before the cab or the bcakglass. The whole ad looks very suspicious.
