What gumballs did everyone buy? I bought a set from Pinball Life and they look nice, but they are what appears to be almost ceramic. Having a difficult time getting them into the pinball machine and worried about cracking an irreplaceable part. The other ones seem to be plastic and maybe have a bit more give to them and wondering if I should look at picking up those to be safe.
Mod wise I really have none. I do want the glowing slot scoop and the mod that lights up the clock. Maybe even the light shade that says Twilight Zone on it. But not going to add many that add toys to the playfield, I'm more a light guy.
MK6PIN - Love the lighting on that. I need to work on mine.
Quoted from VolunteerPin:
I paid $6700 for it. I'm concerned I may have paid too much but it does look like it is in really nice shape and has some decent upgrades.
It seems like a fair price. There are the price police who will tell you how you could wait 3 years scouring Craigslist, Ebay, and other sources for one at a lower price. But if it's a machine you want now, and you value your time, I don't think it's bad.
It's technically $6450 if you factor the invisiglass is a $250 add-on that can be used in other machines. After that the if the cabinet doesn't have fade, that has value since so many of them do. New decals alone are close to $300 and you're looking at an additional $700 to have a pro put them on or a few weekends of your time.
When it comes to machines like this, it's tough to put a fair value on because there are only so many out there, only so many for sale, only so many in that condition. Not to mention how much work you want to put in on it. I think you did fine, you got a great game in great condition (which is rare).

sturner....thanks..I'm one of the few that is not thrilled about Robby....might be that it sort of clutters the middle too much for me.....
Just curious, have you tried that LED OCD thing being sold? I'm putting one on my TZ before switching over to LED. Supposedly gets rid of the strobe effect in the inserts.
Had one of the best games in ages. Closing in on 1 billion, nailing jackpots left and right, 1 door away from LITZ with an extra ball in hand. Then it can't find a ball. Had to carefully grab one out of the gumball machine and put it in play. Then the right flipper got stuck up and would take 10 seconds to fully drop down which made it real difficult. Frustrating way to finish out.
I still have to work on the slot machine on mine. Still kicking the ball too far to the left and get too many going SDTM. Which brings up a question. I notice it shoots SDTM after balls come out of the slot machine in close succession. Would the coil need to recharge or something? Is that a sign of something in there being off?
I have owned one of these for a couple years now and played it since I was a kid and never realized the Golden Earring song was the one used in this game. Just never put 2 and 2 together.
