Item description

Hi All.... I have decided to sell my Joust PROTOTYPE (Serial # XP0228) pin which I have had for about 23 years now. It is always the most popular game at pinball parties since you can play head to head and is great for pinball brackets. But, I haven't been having parties as much so it is time to slim down the collection a bit!

This specific game is one of the two prototypes that Gilbert Sanchez bought in Chicago during the 1998 Pinball Expo. They had been sitting in a distributor warehouse for an unknown amount of time back in Illinois and have the XP serial number because they were for the 1983 AMOA Expo also in Chicago. I bought one of them from Gilbert for a pretty penny when we got back to Denver. It has been in my house in a nice heated space since then. When I got it, it needed shopped and had some playfield wear. I had the playfield touched up and clearcoated the old skool way with Automotive Clearcoat by Bill Davis. I also did extensive work around the spinner posts to appropriately fill and stabilize them as it is common for these to 'break' out because they used normal screw in mini-posts. These have T-Nuts on the bottom now and are straight and solid. Overall, the game is in fantastic shape mechanically as well, original flippers are still in fantastic condition and you can tell by the cleanliness on the underside of the playfield, there is not any black wear stains from mechanical debris.

The prototype game has different plastics than the production game.

Here are the detailed flaws that I know of..

1. The Player 1/2 side plastic has a crack across the Williams logo, it is not getting worse and is also not very noticeable.
2. The Coin slots had a screw plate or something installed at some point. These can easily be filled and painted black, I just never felt the need to do it.
3. It looks like the black part of the cabinet has been over-painted at some point (not by me) but looks just fine.

Electronics are all in tip top shape and I put in an NVRAM to eliminate batteries many years ago. No etching on CPU PCB from any battery leakage. I also have the latest Joust Pinball ROM's installed as this has prototype ROM's with handwritten labels. I will send the original PROTO ROMs with it, but they definitely have some bugs, so I prefer the last version Williams released.

All Pictures are here -> https://photos.app.goo.gl/9mjTjAKvtbyy5aiC6

and I have attached what is in the album now to this post as well but new photos will only be in the google photos album. If you want any specific pics, LMK and I will add them to the album link above.

At this point Im taking cash/paypal/venmo or crypto offers. Im happy to ship at buyers risk. I will palletize, cardboard and wrap for $150 if you want to have it shipped. I am also located in Fort Collins, CO and may be willing to drive some distance to meet halfway for in person delivery which I prefer.

Hit me up with any questions!
