Selling off a one of my prize games. This is a true HUO TFTC. I doubt that are many out there in this type of condition. I recently shopped this game and added glow in the dark rubbers and full leds. Installed NVRAM and Cliffy protector. Has flipper mods added and custom instruction cards along with the original topper. Game even has the original cardboard intact behind the coin door if you have any doubt that its HUO. May consider trades towards newer Sterns or JJP Pirates

Beautiful machine! And many know this already, but a great guy and seller as well. Someone will be happy to bring this Cryptkeeper home for sure!

I just have to comment that I concur on the condition of your machine. I'm 2nd owner of my own TFTC, but it was purchased from an operator that left it in a warehouse.

This machine is beautiful!!! Nice work, especially on the rubber color choice. Would be nice to see FULL LED in action.

GLWTS!! Folks, come get this collection condition game!

#4 1 year ago

Great game bump with annoying laughter!!

#5 1 year ago

Looks like a real beauty!
I wish sellers of machines of this quality would remove the cliffys for pics so you can see if it’s “ chowdered up” at all or minty. I know cliffys prevent damage but you gotta see what’s under them to get a full understanding of the playfields condition.

#6 1 year ago

It's from Dan so you pretty much know you can trust the info you are getting.

#7 1 year ago

If anyone is interested in the game and would like a pic with the Cliffy off, I'd be glad to do it. Thanks for all the kind words!@

Nice, glws. Someone come join the fang club with us!

Random, question. Is the black around the right eye ball (on your left when looking at the decal) on the main cab right decal factory? Looks to not be present on other decals. Just curious

Everything is factory on this game as it relates to the cabinet.

I know, right? It shot way up in the last couple years. Not knocking the condition of this one, but for this price I could get a NIB WWE Pro.

Gorgeous. I miss my TFTC...

But you are knocking it. Price policing on this website is out of control!!

It's a rare piece. Let the man sell his pin in peace, without all of the comments..........

It is out of control ,but the prices for many pins on pinside is also out of control . So i can see why price policing has been so bad.... they go hand and hand unfortunately.

#18 1 year ago

I agree with you, but not for this one. It's a rare home use only one owner. Also Dan's pins are the best of the best.

But who would want one? Not all new Stern's are created equal. WWE, for one, was all but admitted a disaster. JT was forced to make the game in half the time or less normally allocated to design because the license they thought they had secured slipped away last minute..rumor had it, it was gonna be the Beatles.

As for TFTC- in the recent past it's gotten new code, color DMD, and very soon also Hazzard's Pinsound track may be released to the GP. Funny thing about pinball, the code and the community can increase the enjoyment and the value of the game, even years after. See also DE Star Wars as an example.

Hi Dan,

That is one really nice HUO TFTC you are selling. Three years ago or so I was hunting for months for a TFTC like this as this title is nearly impossible to find in this pristine condition.

GLWTS.

Ok Boils and Ghouls, I thought what I said was pretty obviously a joke. I was trying to imply that it isn't an unreasonable price as it is still in line with a newer Stern, which I would not prefer over TFTC

not trying to stink up the ad, sorry bout that and GLWS

P.S. Please don’t mod my comment for personal attacks I’m not really calling anyone a "boil" or a "ghoul" it is a reference to the Crypt Keeper.

#22 1 year ago

As stated several times above if you are considering a machine from Dan you will not be disappointed in any way. His work is about as good as it gets and he is as honest as the day is long.

As far as pricing comments above - not everyone wants new Stern "junk" and this machine is about as new as it can get without it coming out of a box. I don't know what the "correct" pricing is on nearly new 25 year old machine but I do know you will not find one around often so price needs to be decided between seller & buyer.

I understand the "price police" when it comes to overpriced junk but when you are selling HUO machines that look like new it seems like the price will be what someone is wiling to pay. I think if I owned it I would likely be asking more! How often does something like this come up for sale at any price? If it is a title you are looking for and what one in super nice condition price might make sense - if not regardless of price why feel the need to comment about it? No doubt in my mind Dan will find a buyer at his asking price and more likely than not it will be one of his past customers because they know what they are getting from him.

Quoted from too-many-pins:

I understand the "price police" ...

I don't think you really do. One person said something negative aboot the price, that's it. If you'd all stop crying aboot it no one even would have noticed it.

And if you guys can't catch an obvious joke aboot a NIB WWE, you need to relax.
