Item description

Up for grabs is my amazing Twilight Zone pinball sample machine in excellent condition and loaded with mods. This is the rarer version only produced on the first day for distributor show rooms that contains a third magnet and slightly different art than the final production version.

A full video walkthrough is available here:



This machine is in fantastic shape, with it having gone through TNT amusements for refurbishment sometime over the years. It has offset lithium batteries along with reflowed solder on serviced boards.

The machine is in fantastic shape with only a few minor scuffs on the cabinet which were expertly touched up by TNT. The scoops look minty fresh and there is very little evidence of play with only minor wear in the shooter lane and minor touchups around the black boxes in the Twilight Zone door.

The machine has been fully LED’d. I pulled out the clown LED job and replaced all GI with 2 SMD Comet LEDs and color matched the inserts. Even the blinker bulbs and flashers are LEDs.

The machine has a ton of mods including a color LED DMD, target decals, lit Robbie the robot, lit unobtanium spinning slot machine, lit rocket ship, 3d printed pyramid, 3d printed piano, spiral side blades, spiral backbox decal, trough lighting, backboard lighting, gumballs, clock target clock, diverter decal, mini playfield light decal, custom instruction cards, an a Twilight Zone pin gulp.

This is pristine example of the rare version of a highly desirable pin.
Trades are strongly preferred on this one. I am not interested in long distance trades involving shipping. I am physically located in Crofton Maryland between Baltimore and D.C.

I have left this machine in my garage for easy loadout. I still love it, but if I take it into the basement it is never coming back out again.
I value this machine at around $9,500.

Trades I am especial interested include (+/- cash):

Jurassic Park Premium
Star Trek LE
Deadpool pro or premium
South Park
Super Mario Brothers
Star Wars Comic Art (Pro or Premium)
Stranger Things Premium
Elvira House of Horrors
Indiana Jones (Williams)

In addition to pins I may accept in partial trade some arcade 1ups, arcades, arcade marquees (cheap), wallhanger pinball playfields (cheap), pinball backglasses (cheap).
Let me know what you guys have and thank you for reading my ad!

Very very nice

Very nice. How about a Totan trade.

#4 82 days ago

Looks really nice. Is the lock insert green, and is there a decal over the right hand orbit insert which says “Spiral”?

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Lock insert is green, will have to check on the right hand orbit insert tonight. It has the third magnet from the factory, extra green around the robot art, and different decal on the side head. It also has the date of manufacture of 4/5/93... the first day these were made.

Played like butter.

Pictures from when I first got it (pre shop out), note that I fixed the clown LED job among other things.

Nice! I think that is the same exact day mine was made on. This is such a cool little piece of history with the subtle (and less subtle) changes.

#7 82 days ago

Changed to trade as cash offers are now well over the asking price (facebook is nuts!) but I am mostly interested in trades with people bringing games to me. I will be making my decision in the next 24 hours and as always will post the winning offer along with a complete list of offers between the two sites. Thanks!

#8 82 days ago

Fb not crazy this is a very special tz the early samples are extremely hard to find with all the cool lil differences.that third mag multiball mode when it drops all at once is a real showstopper in my opinion!! Nice machine bro

#9 81 days ago

Machine is now sold pending pickup. If they bail I will let you know. As always I'll post all the offers once the machine is picked up late Saturday.

Speaking of offers, anyone want to sell me a pin with a bit extra to deliver it to me? Especially interested in:

Jurassic Park Premium
Star Trek LE
Deadpool pro or premium
South Park
Super Mario Brothers
Star Wars Comic Art (Pro or Premium)
Stranger Things Premium
Elvira House of Horrors

Thanks!

Twilight Zone just walked out the door for a cash sale at $11,000. I wasn't trying to run an auction, but when I got full price offers I told people I was really looking for trades to see what was out there. Someone off of facebook offered 11k in response and I just couldn't pass it up. As always, I will list the offers that were made here and on facebook so that people can understand what these are going for. Full disclosure, a few of these were from the same people.

$11,000 <---------------------- Winner!
$10,000 + Galaga Arcade 1up
$10,000 + Area 51
$10,000 (and ship it to Texas)
$9600
$9500
$9500
$9500
$9500
$9500
$9200
$9200
$8900
$8500
$7200
$4000
Deadpool Pro + $3000
Deadpool Pro and TMNT Pro apparently, but I had already accepted the other offer
Funhouse + Cash TBD
Guns N Roses SE + Cash TBD
Jurassic Park Premium + Arcade 1 up of choice + cash TBD (so tempting!)
Jurassic Park Premium straight
Star Wars Pro (original art) + cash

If anyone has any of the following machines for sale nearby I have a hole in my lineup. I can even add a little if you bring it to me (no shipping though)

Jurassic Park Premium
Star Trek LE
Deadpool pro or premium
South Park
Super Mario Brothers
Star Wars Comic Art (Pro or Premium)
Stranger Things Premium
Elvira House of Horrors

Thanks all!
