The plastics are all good, tiny amount of paint loss on the plastic above the TV shot. The translite is in excellent shape, I have fitted an led tube so it looks really nice lit up. The cabinet is in good condition, the main body is very good, there are a few marks on the backbox sides, particularly the left side, and there is a very small dent on the lockdown bar.
I can't see any fade on the artwork of the machine and the colours are nice and original. The dot matrix display is very good, being an led display there are no high voltages and no problems with warm up time, etching etc, there's no dead led's and it's also very bright.
The machine has had a good quality led lamp conversion including the flashers, the best I've seen yet. The game plays really good and fast. The rubbers have all been changed, all of the bulbs work. The game has a lithium battery cell so there should not be any leakage and it's safe to remain on the circuit board. There are locks fitted, there is a pdf manual which I can give you on a memory stick, the machine is currently set to free play.A coin mech could be easily added if required, although I only have mech's that take old coins at present. I have also PAT and leakage current tested the machine which passed ok, so you shouldn't get any nasty shocks from the metalwork! This really is a great game with lots and lots of shots to make, the Stewie mini pinball is great and is a good challenge, the Stewie multiball is a really tricky challenge with balls going everywhere on both playfields! I'm more a mid 80's pinball fan but this game is great, it's without doubt the best Stern game I've played and the playfield is very well designed with loads of different targets, the gameplay is excellent. I like the fact there's 3 pop bumpers on it as 2 are under the small playfield so aren't noticeable until you play it. The game has a 4 ball multiball and you could say 5 ball when in Stewie multiball as the ball in the mini playfield is also in action.
There is also a large up-post between the flippers which rises when you hit the death drop target on the playfield and saves the ball from draining. There is lots of sounds from the cartoon and it has adult settings with some pretty strong language or it can be adjusted to keep the language suitable for kids.The machine has had a decent full led conversion so no bulbs to replace, I have also re-wired the backbox illumination so that it no longer requires the awkward 110vac fluorescent tube which can cause weird lock ups with the mpu as it ages and gets flickery, it now runs on a standard 240vac 2 foot T8 Led tube which are a much more reliable and easy to get, give off a nicer light and don't give off any heat, so no more burning your fingers on the original Stern Ballast unit, although I have left it in the machine disconnected. The Led dot matrix is a nice feature also, I think it looks better than the plasma units, definitely brighter, and shouldn't have the deterioration issues that a plasma display has.
I also do full or partial restorations on any pinball 1977 or later, even the real odd and obscure makes, plus board repairs, some boards I can do on my rig, some I need the full machine it depends. I don't tend to do electro-mechanicals (pre 1976) mainly due to how time consuming they are, but have done a few in the past, so feel free to ask. The pinball is quite large and heavy but the backbox folds and the legs come off, so it should fit in an Escort van sized vehicle upwards, and I will help you load also.
