#3 5 years ago

That pyramid topper looks pretty cool!

#8 5 years ago

Awesome!

I love my Twilight Zone. It's still my #1 game of all time.

#9 5 years ago

Sir I wish I were you. Congrats on tz!

#10 5 years ago

You got ripped off...Most overrated game eva! Ha just kidding, always be my #1.

Now slap the switch kit on the powerfield and get it 100% slick.

You'll need a piano too. I think there's better slots out there but we're really nitpicking at that point.

EDIT: Damn I wish both side decals were that nice on mine.

#11 5 years ago

Nice! Congrats on getting your grail pin!

#12 5 years ago

I'll be joining you in a about two weeks, can't wait! I ended up selling 4 pins for mine, but happy to do so;)

#13 5 years ago

Awesome! Looks like a fine machine. Give that TZ a little love and patience and it will never leave your home.

#14 5 years ago

Congrats! Look very nice.

Yep, had to get another one! The switch mod is a must. The lamp shade really sets it off as well with the low profile switches on the power field. I just put this shooter rod on and really dig it as well.

Killer pin! One of my favorites!

Congrats. Looks like a sweet TZ. Its a great feeling to own your favorite pin and be able to play it whenever you desire to. Enjoy and may I suggest the door flasher kit and the robot next?

#20 5 years ago

Great score Rick!
Glad you could realize your TZ dreams!

#21 5 years ago

Love the pin looks awesome, I love the feeling of finally getting the pin you have been looking for!

#22 5 years ago

Congrats on getting your TZ.

#23 5 years ago

Sweet! I know how you must feel. I just finished a year-long restoration on mine and am loving it.
This is Lawlor's opus! Not sure a machine this complex will ever be made again.

#24 5 years ago

#25 5 years ago

#26 5 years ago

Hi BR,

Thanks!

I got it from a local collector friend of mine. He has been selling off his stuff and this was one of the last to go. When I saw it, I fell in love. Definitely one of the nicest I have seen in person.

I still have my TOM (you can see it in the back) and still like it. Just two very different pins...

Thanks Wicked! My wife actually got a little annoyed/jealous today because I spent waaaay more time with the machine than her!

#32 5 years ago

Well done, great pin, enjoy, you have the original rocket ship mod as well, you can't get them anymore. Check out the pinball decals web site for any remaining mods, not that you need many more, you are about to enter....the....Twilight Zone...

#33 5 years ago

I'm very jealous, One day I'll be posting a new TZ.

May I suggest you buy your wife a machine of her own? She may not feel so left out

#35 5 years ago

Moved to the Buying and Selling Sub Forum. Pinside Talk is for issues with the forum itself.

Do it now while you're still pumped up to work on it. I did NOT have a good time taking off the powerfield, and i DO NOT want to go through it again.

#37 5 years ago

Nice score Rick471

#38 5 years ago

Looks great congrats rick TZ really rounds out an already solid collection!!

#39 5 years ago

Nice score!

What is a TZ worth that was pulled from the vender route a few years ago, no mods, unknown operation, dirty and average wear but not trashed? My guess is $2000-2500 if there is no way to plug it in.

TZ is hard to take the Boston average because some of those pins have thosands in mods, some nothing. The love for the game drives it up as well but I am surprised it has not gone higher. My guess that the reason the price is not near MM is due to over 15,000 being made and they have a lot of stuff to keep working.

I think you're in the ballpark but how often do you think the situation will come up where the buyer won't have a way to power it up?

Here ya go. Heres where I got it from. You'll have to e-mail him to see if he has any more. I personally like the white clock faced ones a little better but he hasnt produced them in a while. Beggars cant be choosers.

Actually that is fairly common here. People will have them stored in a conex with no power. I have came across that a couple times now. I have a generator and a long extension cord but I will not expend the effort if I am buying, that is up to the seller. Stuff can live a long healthy life here ina conex because we do not have much humidity and the weather stays cool.

The picture of the clock made mem think it was a LOTR. I had to look close to see the clock face from the side pic. Very nice mod.
