Not to bomb someone else's for sale thread, but I have a sample TZ with all the same extras that I'm willing to let go for half the price. I'll even add in a second game from my collection for free (your choice)

Fun thread documenting the differences between a sample TZ versus a production TZ. Would be great to get photos of this machine's special bits added to that thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sample-tz

Quoted from pinmister:

Still scratch my head trying to understand why people think prototype or sample games are worth more money? May have slightly different art, etc.-Who really cares about this stuff? It is like someone has a prototype game and says to someone-"Look what I have-it's a prototype because the boards are red and has hand writing". Who gives a flying F*@! Are people really interested or impressed with this stuff? Scratching my head

Quoted from fns9l:

Ted,
I GREATLY APPRECIATE the first hand account. I have often wondered what is going on with the white clock vs the colored clocks. There are quite a few things on this machine that appear to be installed after the fact, there are many holes for posts that have been drilled, and redrilled. Several are even drilled through the artwork and then filled in again. Some of these holes are drilled crooked, and i habe found atleast one instance where two holes overlapped. A few of the bolted down features looked like they were "made to fit" with shims and chiseled out wood etc. I noticed some redboards very clearly marked with a name, that ends in H. Would that be the manufacturer of the redboards, or perhaps someone who worked with them? Also there is a faint dark ink stamping marked onto all of the redboards. I have seen some colored lights that have no socket or bored under them, some with and some without markings on or near the lights.

Would be great if you can photograph these and share them. While not directly connected to the sale of your game, it will document a nice piece of pinball history for others to enjoy.

Quoted from djb_rh:

I agree with all this. Would be nice to see that Whirlwind back in my hands, though!
FWIW, I also own TZ "#1 on the run" signed as such on the bottom by Pat Lawlor. Yes, the machine posted here *is* prior to mine, but apparently Pat signed each of the first games off the production line like mine. As such, mine is the first *sample* game and is a true factory third magnet game.
I'll let it go for...$50k. *cough*

That is awesome! Can you post some pictures of it (in another thread? -- the main TZ one, perhaps?)
