For sale: Shadow, The (Upgraded/Loaded/Shopped)

Added: August 11th, 2019 Ended: August 18th, 2019
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Item description

Jaw dropping Shadow here. It has had the works done to it. Fully stripped & polished & while I was at that, I installed 2 new & much improved ramps from Mantis & installed ALL titan bands for the rubbers & replaced the flipper bats themselves. Replaced some coil sleeves, tweaked switch gaps, etc. Game is fast & dialed in. Then I upgraded the close yellow standups to the heavy duty ones from Marco's. No more ball jumping, those suckers are strong, was great to replace the ones that have been hit a million times at high speed over the past 25 years. New balls.

Also just installed mirror blades & the game got high end LED treatment. Color matched NO FLIX LED for all cpu controlled lamps. Then a mix of cool & warm white 2smd frosted for the GI. Warm vs cool determined by the artwork color of the above plastic or surrounding area. Looks great & gives game some contrast without ugly color bombing. LED flashers everywhere but domes. Type, color & number of SMD flasher type determined by location, line of sight, etc. Again only warm white or cool white for flashers except I do think I used a red flasher for the red insert on the battlefield.

Custom translite installed which I love sooo much more than the original. As well as the city scape decal added to the once barren back panel.
Condition is really good overall. Any plastic cracks are very minimal, no missing chunks. Same with the cab, just a few nicks here & there mainly on the head decals, but no huge gouges or chunks missing. Very nice overall for a game this age. Playfield is pretty exceptional too. Look how clean & zero wear at the typical spots like kickouts & rollovers. Only thing of note is some slight insert separation around the mode lamps, which is common. Sanctum had very minimal wear, but I installed the overlay decal sold by a fellow pinsider because I actually think it looks good & the ball stops on it.

Also added flipper fidelity speakers (w/ cab/head volume controller). These made such a difference on this title, more so than on other titles I've installed them on, so I'm glad I went ahead with it. Lastly 2 optional components as I can use these on other games if not wanted. Color DMD for $400 more as well as pinnovators headphone jack for $100.
I went all in on this machine. Lots of money & labor spent to make it this nice. Not the easiest game to shop (properly) & especially swap out those ramps. Labor of love though, as always!

That alt translite is fantastic. Where did you get it from?

#7 9 days ago

I think this game is the most underrated game in all of pinball. It's price point is far lower than the enjoyability and looks of the game combined. This should easily be a 5k game, minimum.

Was just playing mine last night, really a cool game, not easy unlike other games from this era, super fast, short shots and a lot of side to side action. Going to add a shaker to mine too, should be a nice experience.

True. I see games with less depth, no toys & inferior build quality sell for quite a bit more. Rules were already good but I tweaked them to the "Luppin Rules" as found here on pinside & came highly recommended. Between that, alternate translite, new ramps & bunch of other additions that improve a couple things people don't like about the game originally, you just can't go wrong. This is the 2nd I've owned. & the 2nd I've had to sell due to finances. I'm willing to bet I'll have another if the prices stay reasonable on them.

Sorry you have to sell, and I bet you'll be back again - The Shadow is one of those games that flows so fast and has so much going on, different ways to play it etc. It's addicting and I play it just about every day.

Nice looking machine and good luck with the sale.

It really is. I think the guy's name is John Hansen or something like that. He sells them on ebay as well. It's good quality stuff I've bought from him a few times & will probably have him make me one for my Genesis.

What are these “Luppin Rules” you speak of?

#14 8 days ago

Anyone who tries to talk the seller down from his asking price is a cheap ass.

Yep, I said it.

For that price for everything that has been done to it, $4100 is insanely fair.

Love how the images are lifted from the pulp art. I actually might get this one.

I have not implemented on my Shadow yet, but will be soon. These tweaks make lots of sense after playing with some of the standard rules for the last few months.
