I'm putting up my prototype TMNT for sale. The machine is one of two known in existence. It was made for the AMOA Show. The other owned by Pantor80. The code is pre production but have downloaded the files for prosperity so if something happens machine will always function. The difference on this machine is the captive ball return in the upper left playfield, different header with animation, different bonus features, and pinball topper.
I honestly love this game and so do my kids. Simple mindless fun. No deep ruleset and sometimes you just need a machine like that.
Here's the problem... I have had problems with the amount of juice that flows to the right and left slingshots and they don't propel the ball with enough force. I replaced the power supply board 2 years ago and it fixed it. It then did it again a year later and I did the same but it didn't fix it this time. Honestly don't have the know-how to fully troubleshoot nor the time AND I want to make room to expand my collection and 3 is my limit.
So sale of this would allow me to buy another in due time. I don't want any trades. Going to keep my eyes on the future. Will also allow me to once again see my Dart Board behind it.
$1,300 firm for local buyer on pinside. I know you guys can get this to its glory again. Would make me happy that someone here has it and gets it cranking. I have felt 'cool' owning a prototype.
