SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD

Updated 02/11/2015: Back up for sale after member "pinjunky" jerked me around for a few days and never even came to look at it...

You tube video. Make sure to watch in 720 or 1080P.

*** ADDITIONAL PICTURES CAN BE FOUND BELOW ***

Long story short, I was after for a nice TZ for half a year. Last week two people called me at the same time. To not go back on my word of buying, I purchased both.

I am keeping one and selling the other. Both are pretty much identical. Great condition with right side fade. Please keep in mind the pictures taken is how the game has been. I have not even wiped it down. It will look even better after a minor shop.

- Excellent playfield
- Early Production
- Recently rebuilt flippers
- Right side cabinet is faded
- Rear left leg has some barely visible wrinkle (See picture)
- Few scratches (See Picture)

I am located on the Jersey Shore. Prefer not to ship, however I will. You must set everything up. I am not responsible in any way after it leaves my home. Payment must be fully cleared before it leaves. Or come over and check it out. No pressure.

Asking $5500. SOLD SOLD SOLD

That playfield is in nice shape . Shooter lane is very good indication of low plays . This out ways the fade . GLWS

#3 5 years ago

Good looking TZ - priced fair

#4 5 years ago

The left inlane looks like new, nice game. If I didn't recently get one, I'd be after this. Good luck.

#5 5 years ago

Everything 100% no clock or other issues? Playfield looks awesome.

#6 5 years ago

R u saying its a sample or just one of the the early playfields because of the plugs?most early/sample tzs have green lock insert the plugs can be on any tz because it was usually up to operator if they want to put in the star post or not ,If they were put it the plugs were usually put in after they were taken out .

Everything works. I will continue to play it over the next few days to ensure I dont run into any issues... just got a few hours ago.

Early production due to play field plugs.

Additional pictures as requested in PMs.

Thats what im saying they can be in anh tz if the star posts were installed by op . Then the plugs can be installed after taken the starpost out. Is it have the third magnet routed out? Whats the manufacturer date? Also not trying to be a a hole just wanna figure it out

You can see in the posted puictures, there is no third magnet routed out.

This is a production game, on the early end of the cycle. I'd guess manufacture date is June/July. (Be curious to see how close I am.. )

Thats what I was trying to say also and asked for the date. Am I right that them plugs can be in any tz because the star post came with the game for the ops to decide?

Mine is may and I have no plugs so think the date may be off?

No, the plugs were removed during production sometime - once the production decided to leave them out, playfields that were already made had those plugs installed in them. Some sample games (like mine), when a tech came out to fix some artwork he took out the star posts and put in those plugs.

And if yours is May, then I was farther off than I thought. I would call sometime in May the cutoff date for playfields made with those holes still going out.

#14 5 years ago

It has a yellow lock and colored clock face so can't be very early. I've believe those were changed out after the first few thousand games - green was deemed too hard to see in the back corner. I'm guessing a June or later date on this one.

#15 5 years ago

They made 15,235 units

The first 2000-3000 had a white clock face.

The play field plugs were made apart of the first 3500.

I would guess this game is somewhere in the early 3000s.

Manufactured Date 06/07/93

My other TZ in my basement is 08/04/93

#16 5 years ago

My manufacture date is 6/4/93 and it has a green lock insert. The clock face can easily be changed, mine is colored too. Sellers' manufacture date shows this is pretty early, within a few months of the production date. How fast did they make these? I doubt it was 1000 per month at the beginning.

#17 5 years ago

Why are you guys breaking the sellers balls? Its a fair priced games regardless of when it was made. GLWS.

I meant mine is june actually a week after op so who knows ,we never will but ive seen ones made in aug with plugs in them so who the heck knows lol just saying the only ones that really matter and worth mentioning being early are the samples with white backbox door , white clockface, mini playfield with flip here missing , green lock insert ,starpost in pop bumper area, extra flashers in door panel and thrid magnet . They are the rare ones

Nice tz beautiful playfield

Were not just trying to figure out the tz mystery

#21 5 years ago

Alot of requests for shipping. Never shipped before and would like buyer to view machine in person first.

Someone is supposed to come look at it this evening.

#22 5 years ago

That's a shame I would have paypalled all funds and had navl carry it out legs on no mess and fast. Grabbed another one. Highly recommend shipping if you take lots of pics and describe well. Many of buy this way now.
Bump and hope a local guy pops up.

#23 5 years ago

No thanks. Just don't want to risk anything. If something happens during shipping or for some reason the buyer is disappointed etc. Plus paypal fees. Rather have someone come over, play it, look it over, have a beer and take it home

#24 5 years ago

Bunch more pictures posted along with you tube video in first post.

#26 5 years ago

I will entertain shipping. However you must set everything up. I am not responsible in any way after it leaves my home. Payment must be fully cleared before it leaves my home.

#27 5 years ago

Sunday funday snow & cold!

#28 5 years ago

Shipping is easy to set up. Just call Michele Bianchi at Precision/STI Shipping 877-432-2646. One phone call and you are set.

#29 5 years ago

Surprised this hasn't sold, looks like a nice game...good seller.

#30 5 years ago

Doostur, PM'ed you over a week ago. was in the area but you never got back to me. may be back in a week or two if it's still available

Cmon over and play. I remember being in Berlin like 15 years ago where 3 kids from Enfield got into a horrific car accident. I think 2 of them died and one was paralyzed. Your location made me think of that for some reason.
