  • Tassie Firepower with pics

    Just done a bit of searching and found someone downhere with a Firepower..Over the the phone he was looking for $1500.00 ..didn't tell me anything about the game and says he is going to list on ebay in the next few weeks...Man I l always end up negotiating with the Steve Ritchie pinballs if I get this I will ahve F14, Teminator and now Firepower ...
    Should I go for a more open type of playfield as all Steve's, Williams seem to have a lot of long shots?
    anyhelp guys?

      Kewl..do you reckon $1500 is a good price for a 1980 game? Cripes I paid $2000 for my T2 only 3-4 years ago..needed abit of work and I am sure this will too. Mainly going to look at back glass as painted BG can be shot big time and that is hard to replace ...playfield well hoping for a repro platfield in the future if it is crap then I might knock him down a bit..wil take some photo's of his arcade games if I get down there this weeeked think he has a lot stand up drivng cabs
      has a gauntlet 4-player original if anyone is intersted

      I have been thinking Fowerpoer ( affodable ) thats the sputnik for non real eighties boys..love the look of four bumpers ..says it has a sound prob could be a quick rom change ?...but being in tassie for so long it will need a few things doing to it and coils would of been changed to the closest one available .

        $1500 is pretty good. that machine is pretty rare and sought after. it is one of the better 80's games by the looks of it. i think you also got a bargain with your T2. most i see are $2500 - $3500 and the cheaper ones are pretty stuffed. so don't compare the 2!

              That would be great! Was someone going to do a price list from that auction too?

              Might go and check this one out on Saturday

              Can't believe I spelled it Fowerpoer in my previous post

                Finally got down south to check it out today..it wasn't worth the $1500.00 as I mentioned a few things Cab repaint slight wear on playfield. It lite up but the scores didn't work (none so hoping this will be easy fix). The back glass has worn but only on the blue parts .Will post more when I pick it up ended up getting it for $600.00 It's complete! Ask him if he could open it and no shit before a realised he had a crowbar in the door and and bent it open .Say's he does it all the time..No real damage done..the under playfield looks good.took a few pictures around his storage shed..Will post more soon!

                I am really happy to get it for $600..even for parts..but this will be restored to it's former glory!

                            I think you got it for a fair price.
                            It looks like with some TLC you will have a nice machine.

                            Well done. Take lots of photos

                              Thanks mate. I have never repainted a pinball cab or touched up a playfield so I am on a new learning curve. Will be taking lots of photo's and asking lot's of advice
