I keep seeing this thread and it makes me want my TOM back! Man I love the flow on that game

#52 7 years ago

how do you get rid of pins that you fall in love with. I cant seem to get rid of any that i have..and then i cant experience any new machines.
Love my ToM...esp because its in great shape.

#53 7 years ago

The problem is that there are so many games out there that we want. I have TOM that I'm toying with selling because I found another game that I want and I don't have room just to add another. One game has to go to bring in another.

Quoted from jpop:

Love the rusty balls..!! Would make a nice feature turning the rusty ball into a shiny ball...

Rusty balls. That's funny - our cat we just adopted is named Rusty and he just got neutered. In fact, I'm holding him now.

Looking good Skypilot and I plan on tearing down and giving my TOM the cc treatment down the road. Make sure to get a set of gold blades from Drano while he still makes them!

Congrats on the TOM!
Just purchased my TOM about a month ago and love it!
Everyone that comes over loves playing it!

TOM is still one of the nicest looking pins out there IMHO. Its not a super hard game and gets bashed for lack of a good wizard mode but its just a fun , smooth game to play. I have a nice example and its not going anywhere soon.

If your trunk starts acting funky clean the gear box......

Probably the most beautiful of its generation along with TOTAN and yes and smooth.IMO

#67 6 years ago

Wow, beautiful playfield.

#68 6 years ago

I sold mine that I purchased in 1998 paid $1,900 for it back then. In 2006 I fund another one in excellent condition. $3,600.00 + $300.00 for a Brass Beauty kit. Added full costume LED conversion $ 150-$200.00 in 2011. JPOP is my favorite designer. One left to buy back. CV that I sold in 2002.

Time for an update. I have been patiently waiting to continue on in this restoration. The cabinet finally got it s final coat this week. The playfield has been nearly complete for 9 months and occupying my rotisserie. (I had to make a second one just to do other restore/shops).This restore just went back into high gear and I'm pumped!

Kidding, Cost was never a factor ,its just a hobby

This is top notch sky pilot, great work. Deserves a major pat on the back

#90 6 years ago

Looking awesome! That's some incredible attention to detail.

I love my similar ToM, but I actually have it up in the marketplace currently to see if I can coax some interesting trades to get a bit of variety! I know I'll miss it though.
