Wow! look at those crazy prices! Out of this world!!!! GLWS

#3 4 years ago

These prices are from the Twilight Zone. Are they HEP restored? Then it would make sense to me.

#4 4 years ago

I thought I read somewhere the seller is a pinball Doctor.

"Discount available for multiple purchases and/or cash. Pricing includes epay/paypal fees."

Well thank God. That's a relief. Really appreciate him being reasonable.

How much for this in Green Stamps?

#9 4 years ago

just for the record. Superbands are never ever an upgrade. If anything, i'd demand $1000 off because you have them on in the first place. If you have colored bulbs in the GI's or backbox. That's another $1000 deduction. Cabinet decals. - $2000.

How much is this game worth?

Price speculation only goes so far in any market period.
Time is ticking, make it count.

GLWS.

Strange how the left side of the zone red is faded to pink right out of the box?

Small bit of manufacturing information for knowledge.
Part of this photo was due to the flash of the camera and angle, the actual color is a deeper red, but yes the colors were lightly ink tainted if you look closely on the right side (closest to the coin door) as a scrutinizing collector myself.
I will gladly take another photo to show the colors 22 years later.
I found this hard photo in my archives and scanned it.

However, owners should realize silkscreen printing errors ocurred at the Churchill factory.
This is the source of the problem.
These were the times nobody cared, including owners and operators, BLY/WMS did not give new cabinets for superficial reasons, and their was no way to for me to evaluate a game that was drop shipped in its box from the distributor sent 3000 miles to my home in Alaska. Not much I could do in 1994. Essentially I was "a private owner treated like an operator." These type of problems were more common than some people may realize for large game runs of the era. Some TZ non-prototype and sample games even still had the original prototype backbox artwork versus the production artwork due to cabinets leftovers, similar to what happened in TAF ("gold" versus standard) with cabinet overruns in preparation for the Collector's Edition. Most people did not care about these errors either. The same problems still happen today, although most games have decals (versus screened) produced through a slightly different inking process. The only facet that makes the problems more rare is the low production runs, and the circumstances of the hobby based on ownership. Fortunately, my playfield had no issues and this title was uncommon to have insert ghosting unlike games later in the 1995-97 period.

I was just happy to get this machine as a distributor overstock closeout after the production run was completed.

There is a incredible host of nuances with this title due to changes as well from the prototype/sample/production during the high run of this game.

Mr. Estes was nice enough to go through many of the changes.

Best of luck to the dealer/broker on the ad.

Cool story, and my TAF has a similar issue with the cab art not being perfect...so this gives mine a bit more context. The left side's grays on top of the text "The Addams family" are too deep, the right side's too light. Anyways, as to this TZ- GLWS seller.

This is fascinating, as I've had a couple of comments recently about my TAF cab decals being faded, but they clearly are not, as the black is still very deep. But yep, one side is darker than the other.

I've never heard about the prototype translite on TZ though - now THAT would be a find! That's not part of Ted Estes' story on GameroomBlog but I wonder if it's ever been printed elsewhere?

Backbox cabinet artwork on the sides, not translite artwork.
I am not aware of any games that received different translite artwork.
However, there are actually two different translites (of the same artwork) for the game related to the "punched star holes" to the different twinkling effects. I own examples of both of these as I ended up picking up a used translite from a parted game for my art collection that has no star cutouts.

Got it. Mine has the cutouts, I have found, and the white door background on the backbox. What an awesome game.
