Item description

Super-Rare w/ only 600 ever made! Now's your chance to own one of the most mind-numbingly great Pinball machines, based on the widely-heralded cinematic masterpiece of the same name!! I mean, it has Matt LeBlanc on it, need i say more?!!


Seriously though, this is an extremely nice example of the game. Overall very clean, and in great working order. I got it from one of the producers of the film, who himself got it as a gift from New Line Cinema. When i went to see it, it was set up in his office in SOHO, NYC. It honestly looked as if it had never been played. I then routed it in Reciprocal Skateshop in the E.Village (for those who remember that place!) for about a year or so, where it was operated under my watchful eye, while I obsessively maintained it.


Then, when i closed Reciprocal and opened Jackbar, I put this in storage, where it's sat for 5yrs. Pulled it out recently and gave it a full shop-job. All top-side removed, Cleaned, Waxed, Re-rubbered, underside tuned and tightened, flippers rebuilt using William's Pawls and coil stops. They play and feel great! all GI bulbs replaced w/ Frosted Natural White Comet 2SMD's. No cracked plastics, no wear on playfield, Mylar custom cut around spinning disc. Cabinet is a 9.95 (no idea where i get that number). No flipper button wear, and protectors installed day 1. It really looks and plays beautiful.


minor faults... The transistor for the Green Flashers is locked on, and it melted the flasher dome (easily cheap and replaceable, just don't have one on hand). bulbs are removed, and I'm not replacing the transistor before the sale..New owner can take on that task. Thankfully it still has 32 other working flashers Also, the coin door is not original, it's swapped from my t3 that needed working coin mechs. not a big deal, but want to disclose everything I know. Lastly, a small bit of the clearcoat ONLY had started to chip at the top of the spinning disc from the ball dropping on it for Condition Red Multiball. no artwork is lost, and I've since preemptively sealed it with clear nail polish, and protected the entire outside of the disc w/ the custom Mylar i mentioned earlier. Would be very hard to notice, as art is intact, but again, full disclosure.


Game is folded up, with no games played on it after shop-job other than to test, and available for pickup at Jackbar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Shipping can be done at buyer's expense and arrangement. I'll just be sure to be there to let the driver's in to do their thing.


not necessarily looking for trades, but i'll listen. thanks for looking!

That’s because we know you’re including $1500 in drinks with it.

Well I've looked at pics and I'm sure others have too. I just don't think anyone will jump for this machine and as for the price police...you're 1K over priced if you really want to know.

It's a fine line in pricing something. Example:
Do I spend $4500 on this or save another $1k and get a brand new machine. Just my opinion and means nothing as I'm not an expert so don't get any feathers ruffled.

John is a great guy, and is very attentive when it comes to machines. Buy with confidence that he's disclosing everything.

price drop for a very hard to find game, especially in this condition!

#10 1 year ago

Call me crazy but I loved the remake which this is based off and like the gameplay/sounds/call outs of the pin all be it that I played it on my PC. I always thought of owning one if I had the space and price is right. I have no space and out of cash right now LOL

Nice game/deal for someone!

#11 1 year ago

A great underrated game! No modes in the game but the super jackpots in the 3 multiballs are very challenging. The custom callout bynthe Robot voice actor from the TV series and the light show are both fantastic. Updgraded speakers with deep bass are a must add on.

If you are not a fan of the movie you can always retheme it to the TV series with a few tweaks to the art package and some new toys on the playfield. I've brought mine to a few shows and people have a lot of fun playing it.
