    Had a chance to score a Twilight Zone and a Theatre of Magic today...but was just a hair late! Ran across both of them (same seller) on CL this afternoon. He was asking $3500 ea. in "great shape", only 1 hour from me! Both sold right before I called! I'm sick to my stomach... Just had to vent.

    They were listed Friday...just so you know.

    Sorry Dude, total bummer.

    Lately I have been lucky getting that deal of a pin but one day I know it's going to happen to me.

    I think every time someone loses out on a pin they should wear a tee shirt that reflects how they are feeling, that way other pin guys that see him can buy him a beer and/or a stripper.

    I wish, I talked to him yesterday and today and he had a long list of potential buyers. I am sure if you watch CL some rag and tag bastard will have them listed in the next couple of days.

    I hear ya. I really hope a collector bought them to enjoy and play, not to flip.

    Did someone buy the T3?

    Last I heard he still had it. He claims he bought the Pin NIB and it has less than 200 plays...or something like that.

    Well, I know the TZ isn't going up for sale anytime soon.....

    #10 8 years ago

    I feel your pain. Just last night a No Fear and a Junk Yard went up on CL for sale. $1000 each or both for $1800. I called 1 1/2 hours after it went up and somebody from South Carolina was coming up to buy. Although I don't feel as bad now. I called the seller to see if they sold and now he has found out what they are worth and has a bidding war going on. I think it was up to $3000. I told him no thanks.

    Sweet Mikey " " glad you finally got a Pin and not only a good one but at a good price. This is one of the rare times I am glad I am wrong.

    #13 8 years ago

    Last I heard the T3 was still avail. too. He was asking $2k. If it's trully pristine and huo, maybe worth it, but not for me. I agree with you, hope the TZ and TOM go to a good home...

    I'm not counting my chickens yet. Technically it's not mine until I pick it up at 4:00. It does have a couple issues here and there, but nothing major and a couple of them are super easy fixes of known TZ quirks.

    The TOM sold to a guy in Monterey, supposedly.....but if that falls through, I'll be taking that home as well. I'm not crossing my fingers on that one, though. The TOM was in fantastic condition I'm almost certain you'll see it for sale on a bay area CL for $5500, easy, in the next few days.

    As for the T3, it is practically brand new. The cabinet artwork was fantastic, nice sharp corners. Playfield was in great shape. I didn't look at it too long, but it looked up to snuff.

    Honestly, the TZ was in the roughest shape of the three. I'll have more info and pics tomorrow, hopefully. Funny thing is, it's only about a block or so from where I work!

    #15 8 years ago

    $3,500 isn't THAT good a price... Maybe a few hundred cheap, but we all know what it means when a machine is listed in "good shape."

    #16 8 years ago

    You obviously don't live in CA. I don't think I'd have any problem flipping this at $4500 tomorrow if I wanted to. I know that TOM could be flipped for over $5k easily.

    Besides, I paid less than what he wanted....

    #17 8 years ago

    Great find, congratulations , find them , flip them , or collect them, you did very well!

    This has happened to me at least three times this year. I am chronically a step behind. I feel your pain.
