This is a true sample with third magnet, different head artwork, no art on the spirals on upper playfield, and all of the other differences (https://gameroomblog.com/features/twilight-zone-pinball-prototype-vs-production).

Fully working, clean, shopped, in nice condition.

$10K? More? Hard to know with prices lately. Wondering what everyone thinks.

Quoted from Coyote:

*JUST* because it's a sample doesn't mean anything. it's the *condition* as well. Assumign you got it in pristine condition? MAYBE $10k. Likely $9k, to the right buyer. And it'll take you a while to find the right buyer.

Sample means in a lot in this game. There are many differences and third magnet in not an easy thing to retrofit in. Add in that it is possibly the best game of all time and there are only 200 samples I think it means plenty on this title.

Quoted from Coyote:

Obviously you don't know me, so I'll just say that, yeah, i have a sample.
And even with a sample, if the PF is trashed, you ain't going to get a lot for it. Like I said, condition still matters.

Who said anything about trashed?

From original post:

'Fully working, clean, shopped, in nice condition."

Quoted from GRB1959:

You may want to listen to Coyote with regards to any and all TZ related inquiries. TZ was the first game I purchased and Coyote chimed in on many of my TZ threads as well as other TZ threads with very useful information.
I consider Coyote one of the most well versed TZ experts on Pinside.

Ok I will bow down to Coyote. Haha. Do note that I have owned at least five Twilight Zones, wrote & published a book about Pinball (https://amzn.to/2UGiuXG), and founded GameRoomBlog.com. I have been collecting for over 20 years and am not some newb.

Of course condition is important. But that was not really the question — as the game is in great shape.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Then why are you asking us what it's worth? You seem to have an idea already.
Just put up a number and throw it to the wolves.

I was hoping to get some actual insights but instead have gotten jokes about the 65K game, basic newbie advice "condition means everything", told that the game with probably the most sample differences vs production really is no big deal, and have been called a douche.

But I am the bad guy...
