Fortune teller replica from movie Big

Added: February 10th, 2019 Ended: March 5th, 2019

Item description

Posting for my friend, I don't work for him but wanted to pass this info. Talk to him directly regarding the projects and risks involved:

Wish Granting Machine — $7500

Hey, folks! After receiving inquiries about my replica coin operated wish granting machine, I’m looking to put together a group of at least 5 buyers (no more than 10) to reduce the cost by fabricating them all at the same time. If anyone is interested, feel free to shoot me an email at [email address removed] to discuss further.

This Wish Granting machine is a life size, 100% screen accurate, handmade movie prop replica! Custom signage can be made to name him anything you like.

Video of game play:



Insert 25 cents and the machine will cycle through 45 seconds of game play in which you must aim the ramp at his mouth, make your wish, press the red button, and then receive your card that reads, "You Wish Is Granted."

Can be adapted such that player only receives a card upon winning (shooting coin into the figure's mouth) or receives a card upon winning or losing.

90" tall
30" wide
30" deep

Made from wood, plexiglass, brass, plastic, and cotton fabric.

Buyer pays shipping. 50% payment is due to begin the commission and 50% plus shipping is due upon finishing the piece.

Does it come with two plugs? One to secretly plug in, and one to show to your guests telling them it is not plugged in?

#4 1 year ago

Very cool. Would love to own one or if he spoke.

#5 1 year ago

That is really cool

#6 1 year ago

Wow this reproduction is amazing! Is your friend doing these himself? Super impressive!

I will pm for your friend contact info!

Quoted from 2manypins:

The one in the movie BIG did not speak. That what makes the reproduction so cool, they are not made, or at least I have never seen one.

If you are looking for the speaking version of Zoltar they are available https://pinballpro.net/product-tag/zoltar/

#8 1 year ago

Yes he's making his props from scratch. He's replicated everything he possibly can to make it close to the original. It will have an extra plug to remain unplugged. The original prop never functioned as intended in the movie and he created this one to do it. It's a functioning machine if you watch the video. It doesn't talk like the other ones because it's based entirely on the movie so he breeze and has a creepy music playing. He can't sell them or advertise them as the title character name because that is own by characters unlimited but he could make the marquee say anything you want. The quality of his build for the price is incredible. If you're looking for something unique like myself for a game room this is it.

#9 1 year ago

Wow, extremely impressive, very cool!

#10 1 year ago

Looks awesome.

#11 1 year ago

This is awesome !!! Great work . If at all possible could you pm me his info . I actually sell fortune tellers every now and then and this one looks great !

#12 1 year ago

All I got is WOW!

#13 1 year ago

Sure if anyone is interested in talking to him I have his phone number or his email is: contact@nickmathisworkshop.com

#14 1 year ago

This is incredible!

#15 1 year ago

I need to win lotto quick and get one of these.
To cool!
Thanks for posting megaladon.

#16 1 year ago

That is badass!

#17 1 year ago

Yea, glad to see some love in this community. I feel weird posting for him since I'm commissioning a piece too but I told him id get the word out because I think this is so unique and a lot of people like us would appreciate the quality and uniqueness to own one. He's already made two and plans to make aproximally 10 total so as an artist peace it will be quite rare. He's going to have them numbered on the inside with a plaque.

Thanks for posting megaladon.

I’m with you hope I win the lotto too, if I do I’ll buy you one Eric!

Looks great. Have you contacted Tom Hanks yet? If you could make the gold dome on top, removable, that'd help sales to those of us with basement arcades. 84" max height most likely...

#20 1 year ago

Yes, the dome can be removed for people with height restrictions. 80” base to the top of the spades or 77" with spades off. He's really thought of fitting this guy into most spaces. I believe he has the plans to make 3/4 size as well to run on dimes but u have to ask him that.

#21 1 year ago

In the movie he drops the coin in the left side? Or is the video reversed?

#23 1 year ago
Quoted from jp1985:

well, since the FX label in the corner is backwards, and all the printed text in the video clip...I would say its reversed!

#24 1 year ago

After seeing the zoltar clip I have to watch the whole movie. Haven't seen it since it was released.

This prop looks amazing.

#25 1 year ago

So want. So cannot afford.

#26 1 year ago

Yea I've always loved the machine design. The original was just a puppet prop by the designer and never functioned.

The video must be reversed as the writing behind Zoltar is all backwards.

I found this on a cruise ship.

#29 1 year ago

Yea that Zoltar isn't much of similarity to the movie version. The company bought the rights to the name. They are slowly producing cabinets closer to the movie but there is no gameplay with the ramp.

#30 1 year ago

Big is on paramount, channel 241 on direct tv right now

#31 1 year ago
Quoted from jorge5240:

Watching it now too!

#32 1 year ago

What would be the time frame on delivery if these, assuming all ten spaces get booked soon?

#33 1 year ago

That is so freaking cool. $7500 doesn’t seem like a bad price for it all things considered

#34 1 year ago

Contact Nick, he could give u info. I believe he's confirmed 3 and wants at least 5 to proceed. Since doing that many at a time I'd venture a guess of a few months but not sure? But yes, the quality of work compared to commercial units is a steal in my mind but especially since they're like the movie...soooo much creepier!

#35 1 year ago

Awesome work, i love these things, they are extremely creepy and cool at the same time, would love a full sized one some day

#36 1 year ago

Badass! Looking forward to seeing video of these in action once he starts making them.

It’s also amusing that the company that bought the name rights didn’t even try to replicate the look (let alone the coin swallowing game). Pretty weak stuff!

Here is the link to his finished product for FAO Schwartz. The marquee is missing because of licensing but he said he can basically title the machine anything you want.

#39 1 year ago

Can you show a photo of the entire unit, including the base?

What is the overall height of the unit?

I’m impressed.

#40 1 year ago

Do you get a different result depending on if you get the coin in his mouth? (Like "wish denied" or something?) Not saying it should do that, but I'm curious about the possibilities!

#41 1 year ago

The machine is a 1 scale but i believe he can make a 3/4 size unit for smaller locations. It can be altered to either give a fortune card if you get it in the mouth only or all the time. Contact him if interested in commissioning. He won't make them unless he has at least 5 people on board...last I heard he has 3! See photo below for the entire cabinet.

90" tall
30" wide
30" deep

contact@nickmathisworkshop.com is his email

What is time frame on completion?

A Zoltar has always been on my list for the game house. I have bought so much stuff lately I don’t know if I can pull the trigger but it sure is awesome!

#43 1 year ago

This so cool.

#44 1 year ago

Looks Amazing, Friking C@@l

#45 1 year ago

In the video he aims the ramp with the right crank handle. What does the left one do?

#46 1 year ago
Quoted from flipnout1:

Did both. One is left/right, other is up/down.

#47 1 year ago

backflipper one of these would look awesome in your basement!

#48 1 year ago

Nick anticipates completion date is about 4-5 months after he gets at least five confirmed commissions. It's nice to expect at least a little extra time just in case something happens with the fabrication. Contact him with any direct questions but once he gets five confirmed he can begin fabricating. Doesn't sound like he will do a lot of them so it'll be a pretty limited run of at least 10 all numbered for Collectors. The right wheel moves back-and-forth the left wheel moves the pitch of the ramp.

#49 1 year ago

So what is the verdict over all? This one compared to the more commercial zoltar?

#50 1 year ago

This one is way better than the commercial Zoltar. A skill game/wish machine
