OK it is time to let this beauty go, here's the story:
I worked at Williams/Bally Midway from 1994 until the got out of the coin-op business in 2001. The programmer for ToM (Jeff Johnson) somehow managed to get a NIB game instead of a test game which was pretty rare to have happen. Jeff played the game maybe a couple dozen times before he passed the machine along to me in the 1990's. It has been in my home ever since and it is still as beautiful as it was the day it came out of the box. It has never been on a location and it has never even seen the sun. Those of you who were regulars on RGP will know who I am and that my story is true and those of you on here who have been to my house have seen the game in person and likely played it.
The game is super clean and aside from a small white mark on the black plastic below the marquee I can't see any faults on it. I have taken extremely good care of it all this time and because it resides in a collection with 17 other games, it never got heavy use. In the past 10 years it really only gets played whenever I have a party or host league so not much at all. The game has only 1 mod done and that was the addition of the old Tom Callahan spinning saw kit. It has no LEDs, no goofy looking dollar store things glued to the trunk. The trunk plastic has some cracking but not enough to make me want to change it yet (I have two original NOS trunks too but since they break so easily I leave them on until it is too broken to keep on then I replace them).
I have the following extras that will be included in the sale:
2x NOS trunks
1 NOS trunk motor assembly sealed in original box
1 mostly complete NOS plastic set (the slings I think are the only missing pieces and they are on the game)
1 NOS spinner assembly
2x ToM embroidered patches that were given only to the design team (see photo)
I am asking $8500 cash OBO - local pickup only unless the buyer can arrange all shipping and crating as I don't have the means to do so (and with a bad back I can't haul the game upstairs by myself either). This is easily the nicest all original ToM you'll find anywhere. I am located in Downers Grove, IL which is 30 minutes west of Chicago and 30 minutes south of where Pinball Expo is and if the buyer is in town for Expo it is an easy journey down to my house to pick up the game.
Trades?: I really need the money more than a game however I would be interested in a NIB or beautiful HUO Tron Legacy plus cash (preferably a Tron that wasn't retrofit with LED's as I'd have to pull all that shit out and put the regular bulbs back in it), or a HUO Spiderman plus cash, or a HUO Batman (dark knight) plus cash. Again LED's have no value to me so I don't consider them adding any dollar value to the game and I'd prefer the owner to just keep his LED's.
Any questions, etc feel free to contact me on here.
