Did a video chat with OP to discuss the sale and he seems genuine and from what I can tell, has true passion for this hobby and a hardcore collector as well. English definitely isn't his first language but good thing I took Italian back in high school cuz it helped to break the ice.

I have no doubt Fulvio is a nice guy with a passion for pinball, but where are these other pics your friends took. Playfield and boards would be awesome. This is my dream theme, but not without more pics. Anything coming out of Miami is a red flag for me. Sorry but true.

BTW are your friends playing a TZ with no power?

I video chatted with him last sunday and we settled on $5000 and I've been waiting for him to send me his bank info since monday but haven't heard anything from him. Has anyone talk to him since?

It appears that this example has seen lots of plays.

Little too much insert wear for my liking. My friend is interested in this title and maybe he is ok with that amount of wear.

If it were my title, I'd pull, strip and send the PF to Captain Neo or someone to add back SALLAH's beard/chin and touch up the other inserts as well. That's a couple grand on top of what you pay for the game.

IJ is a tough game to find in pristine shape due to common insert wear (just like TAF)

Hell I got one with zero insert wear and I couldn't even get 6,500.00 for it. Everybody tried to get it for 5,000.00. Screw that I'll just keep it at that price.

Yea here's one for 5 grand. This is what you can buy for 5 grand.

Drove 1.5 hours there to see game in-person.

No electricity in the non-climate-controlled industrial bay.
Ask to plug in to neighbor's bay with extension cord. Then find out the transformer jumpers still on 230V.
Unable to even power on game.

Drove 1.5 hours home. Half a day gone...

Here's the straight-forward run-down of the game's condition (observations only since unable to power up):

Drastic insert wear (see lower part of Sallah's beard in photo)
Cabinet bottom press-board replaced
Back of head press-board replaced
New cabinet decals have wrinkles
Shooter gun plating completely worn-off
Not a single serial number of any board or component matches
At least one bulb socket was not attached - instead wrapped in a wad of electrical tape, dangling by wires.
Translite, if original, was in excellent shape

If you're going to pursue purchasing this game, I strongly recommend you see it in person before making a decision.

If you want the run-down on game's condition, PM me.

Yep. You'll notice that he seems to include that picture of two guys "playing" a TZ in some of his threads for no apparent reason at all. The thing that amuses me is that they don't seem to understand that you need power to play pinball effectively.
