Item description

This is a completely restored, all original, absolute stunning, heavily modded example of Theater of Magic.(look at the shooter lane and inside of the cabinet). The gentlemen who did this restoration spared no expense and was meticulous. He even redid the original stickers on the back and inside of the cabinet, and the screen print on the back of the backbox. New coils and mechs throughout. Every single piece of metal below Playfield was restored to original condition. When I say this is restored. It’s fully restored!

There’s not a mark or scuff on this cabinet or Playfield. I honestly can’t believe I’m selling it. I never thought I would, but the time has come for a change.

+ Playfield is original and clear coated. The Playfield looks amazing!
+ Game plays perfect
+ New ramps
+ New translite
+ New cabinet decals
+ New plastics
+ New lock down bar
+ New side rails
+ New hinges
+ New coindoor and mechs
+ New legs
+ New shooter housing
+ New feet
+ New balls
+ Metal cabinet leg protectors so legs won’t damage cabinet
+ New trunk
This machine basically looks brand new throughout

The following mods/upgrades are installed
+ Premium, LED's throughout GI, and backbox
+ Premium, Non-ghosting LED’s in inserts
+ Premium LED flashers installed throughout
+ Premium LED trough light
+ Under-cabinet Premium LED lighting which interacts with game play (flashes red, green, blue, and white when you make certain shots)
+ ColorDMD (LCD version)
+ Laseriffic topper (super rare and expensive, probably my favorite topper of all time)
+ Motorized Spinning gold Tiger Saw Mod
+ Lighted Marquee Mirror Mod
+ Metal Chain on the Trunk
+ Custom Theatre of Magic Pingulp cup (Checkout the pictures, super cool!)
+ Speaker lights (Red LED)
+ Inside Art Blades
+ Target decals
+ Custom instruction cards printed on metal vinyl (very cool and very expensive to have made, checkout pictures)
+ Custom Shooter Handle
+ Flipper Topper decals
+ New rubber kit installed
+ Titan competition purple rubbers on slings
+ Purple super band flipper rubbers
+ Cliffy protectors on trunk, basement scoop, and shooter lane
+ Tiger figure mod
+ Includes full plastic protector set which I never got around to installing
+ Remote battery holder installed

Looking for cash deal or would consider trades +/- cash for other very clean, HUO or very nice machines. Willing to ship TOM at buyers expense. I have shipped a lot of high end games and can prep properly for shipping if required.

Let me know if interested or contact me via text or phone with any trade offers.

I am interested to see where the value ends up on this game...I am finishing up a similar restoration...
Game looks great

#4 12 months ago

Nice. We bought our AF from Jimmy. If I remember correctly his brother has a killer outbuilding ! Game is nice, no complaints and he was great to deal with buy with confidence!!

#5 12 months ago

Thank you! This is a real beauty. Just time for a change. I thought this one was gonna be bolted to the floor. Crazy how things can change.

#6 12 months ago

Good lord that's beautiful.

#7 12 months ago

Wow this game looks amazing. GLWS

#8 12 months ago

I’ve played this machine recently at the seller’s house and both the playfield and cabinet looked fantastic to me. This is a gorgeous example of TOM, and one of the nicest I’ve ever seen, maybe THE nicest! Beautiful restoration.


#9 12 months ago

Thanks Mark, yes, it plays perfect and is flawless. It’s a great example of TOM!

#10 12 months ago

This game is priced right in my opinion. Actually a good deal. If CGC were to remake this game the LE would most likely (with tax and ship) be near 9k.

#11 12 months ago

I agree. I don’t think you can beat the price/condition of this TOM.

#12 12 months ago

wish you were closer. if you were closer...
i wish my bank account was bigger. if it were bigger...
i wish my financial priorities were better.

#13 12 months ago

Wow! Gorgeous!

>insert random "wish I had the funds" comment<

Seriously though...it is awesome. You may consider uploading pics on the Theatre of Magic splash page on pinside to help future buyers.

#14 12 months ago

Beautiful Pin Mike... can't believe you are letting this go.

Awesome seller... this wont last the weekend.

#15 12 months ago

Great deal on a great looking machine considering regular TOM machines without all the upgrades and a CC'd playfield are selling in the mid 6k range

#16 12 months ago

This is a screaming deal! 8K for a brand new TOM! Man I wish I had the money and space for this one. Great work on the restoration!

#17 12 months ago

Thanks Kevin. I totally agree. TOM’s like this don’t come around too often. My sister isn’t happy that the custom TOM pingulp cup is included in the sale. She spent hours making it. However, once TOM sells, there’s no real use for it. It’s one of the coolest custom pingulps I’ve seen though!

#18 12 months ago

Stunning example of a game that will always be on the short list of hall of fame titles. Gorgeous! GLWTS!

#19 12 months ago

Thanks Jason!!

#20 12 months ago

This will be sold by end of the weekend!

#21 12 months ago

You would think so. Thanks friend!! I hope you are enjoying your space mission!!

#22 12 months ago

Better value vs the remake for sure.

#23 12 months ago

How is this still available?!?!?!?

Every game I've bought/traded with seller has been better than advertised and this one looks AMAZING!

Seller is FANTASTIC to deal with. Buy with confidence!

It's only 17hrs old.

#25 12 months ago

Gorgeous. I’d i didn’t have. Beautiful TOM too I’d be looking real hard at this one.

#26 12 months ago

This is how you do a high end restoration. Beautify done!

#27 12 months ago

Thanks all. Someone is gonna end up with a real nice TOM.

#28 12 months ago

I picked up a pin from Mike (outstanding seller, BTW) the other day and saw this TOM. That is one sharp looking pin. Whoever restored it was unbelievably meticulous about details, simply amazing.

#29 12 months ago

Thanks Mark!!

#30 12 months ago

I need a cigarette after looking at those pics. Hot damn.

#31 12 months ago

Lmao!!! Now that was funny.

#32 12 months ago


#33 12 months ago

Beautiful TOM - especially love that topper! This would be great next to my Houdini.


#34 11 months ago

Lol. Yes, the topper is very very hard to find and one of the best out there!!

Yes!!! What about an abra cadabra or mata hari too?

#36 11 months ago

Throw them all in with it! Lol.

#37 11 months ago


#38 11 months ago

I'm surprised this is still for sale. Maybe everyone has all the cash tied up in other new pins or holding off on the next remake. I hope it still for sale when I can get enough saved up. But I dont think that will happen. Good Luck!

#39 11 months ago

Wow! I thought my example was nice. This is next level for sure. GLWS

#40 11 months ago

Thank you sir!

#41 11 months ago

If it was closer to winter, it wouldn’t have lasted 10 mins. Lol.

#42 11 months ago


#44 11 months ago

Lots of interest and trade offers, but no deals yet. Working on an offer right now.

everyone must be on Vacation!

Lol! Thanks brother.
