Since I couldnt come up with what I felt was a fair trade I am going to try to sell this pin. I am located in York PA. Here are some pictures of my LOTR. The legs, side rails, and lock down bar have been painted gold and could use a new coat especially around the flipper buttons.

Ill try to give you a rundown of the mods on it:
Leds (CT-color matched) in the inserts - except clear inserts (they were too bright)
Leds (CT) in select GI- some green in shire areas and red/orange in mordor area
Cliffys protectors - wood looks good underneath them
Pinballlife high power flipper coils
Pinbits- Orthanc Rebound Jam Defender
Pinbits- wood rail protector
Pinbits- sword lock magnetic insulator
Pinbits- path of the dead deflector
Pinbits- plastics protectors
Pinbits- Army of the dead mounting kit
Army of the dead figures on top of the pinbits kit, each lit by a 5mm led
pinballlife- upgraded ring ramp post
2 ring wraiths added on top of the sword ramp with 2 red 5mm leds shining on them
Balrog LED
backbox led flasher kit (behind the eye of mordor)

I just replaced the flipper coil sleeves and coils, balls and rubbers approx. 6 months ago.

LOTR, ToM, TAF, TZ are all GREAT games. I currently own a LOTR and ToM (ToM I just got!). I love the flow on both of these games. Good luck in your search man. Your LOTR sounds nice!

#3 7 years ago

thanks fattrain! Oh and by the way I love the picture you have of your pin room from the top of the steps

#4 7 years ago

Thanks Man!!! It's forever changing

Just picked up a WPT, Austin Powers, & POTC. I will have to lump all the Sterns together and take a fresh pic

P.S. In that pic you're talking about TSPP was traded out for ToM since then

#5 7 years ago

Anyone looking to trade ?

#6 7 years ago

I am looking for an LOTR, but I'm so far away~!

Best of luck in your sale/trade!

#7 7 years ago

would trade my TAF for it but you are soo far away!

#8 7 years ago

Wow, unreal for a couple of reasons. First, that's the exact trade I'm looking for - my ToM for a LOTR. Second, my family (wife, three young daughters, and in-laws) are heading for a two week vacation/visit in Dover, PA July 1-15. How far exactly is York from Dover? Just a few miles correct?

Sadly I don't think my ToM will fit as a carry-on.

I'll answer for Alex here... Yes, Dover is right next door. Two words: ROAD TRIP!

What am I saying? I want to play it before he gets rid of it, so DON'T COME BUY IT!

I was thinking the same thing!

#11 7 years ago

Thanks for helping me out chris! Yea i am just 10 miles from Dover. Seems like everyone with a TAF for trade is on the west coast. The hunt continues!

Thanks
Alex

#12 7 years ago

You can come over and play my TAF. Wednesday evenings are good, Saturday mornings are good. We really should get together some time.

#13 7 years ago

Hey chris. I should be able to make it over on wed or sat coming up soon. Kids soccer is coming to an end shortly.

#14 7 years ago

How old are your kids? I have 7 and 4 year old daughters.

#15 7 years ago

TTT. I pmed you Chris.

#16 7 years ago

Starting to think a trade is impossible. Give me your honest opinion of what my LOTR should sell for? Can i sell it for enough to buy a TOM or TAF?

Thanks
Alex

#17 7 years ago

LOTR should fetch an easy 3500 - 4k depending on condition and ToM / TAF will probably be right around there (if not a little higher)

#18 7 years ago

If you are in for a road trip you can come to my house and pick up my TOM. I am about 5 minutes north of Akron Ohio.

Do you have any pictures of your TOM? Would you be willing to meet halfway?

#20 7 years ago

Alex,

I thought I saw this hit craigslist. What no trade offer on this one for Shadow Good luck buddy.

#21 7 years ago

Hey Jason. Yea I put it on there to see what happens if anything. I think im gunna hold off on trading LOTR for TS for now but I would definately trade my HS2 for your Shadow Thanks
man.

#22 7 years ago

Not interested in driving at all sorry.

Hey thats cool!

#24 7 years ago

Alex,

If you would consider selling any of your other games (and could hold out for a little while - need to make a vehicle purchase so the pin funds are low) maybe you could hold onto your LOTR.

The other three games you have are all ones I would consider owning so maybe we could work something out down the road.

Don't know... just throwing things out there. Hate to see you lose your LOTR and then regret it.

(After the past two days I was ready to just GIVE you my TZ, but then I had a decent game tonight and made it to LITZ, so I guess it can stay for a few more days...)

Coming from someone who just tracked down and bought a TAF, I can tell you it has moved to a new and higher level than it was just a few short months ago. Even a mediocre one in an auction I recently was at went for 3.5k+. Really wish I had bought one a couple years ago. Dammit.

#26 7 years ago

I have a buddy in South Bethany with one he might trade. He is right on Fenwick Island. Let me ask him. How far away from there are you.

I am about 3.5 hours from Fenwick island DE. We go on vacation just down the road in OC MD every year. Let me know if he is interested.

After the past two days I was ready to just GIVE you my TZ, but then I had a decent game tonight and made it to LITZ

Was it getting the best of you!

Thanks guys

Kept draining straight down the middle, or would immediately hit the outlanes, or worse... hit the target next to the slot machine and go airborn over the flippers. And I STILL can't hit the piano consistantly for anything.

#29 7 years ago

Still looking!

#30 7 years ago

Only thing stopping me from trading is the fact you rattle canned the armor. If you want to have them powder coated and repost I'm interested.

#31 7 years ago

The armor was painted when I got it. I bought new gold and clear to redo it but I just havent gotten to them yet.

#32 7 years ago

1 last bump for my trade! Any one interested in making a trade? Reasonable trade offers!

Thanks

#33 7 years ago

#36 7 years ago

If you were closer I would highly consider trading you my TAF.
I have been looking for a local shadow, TZ or LOTR.

#37 7 years ago

Thanks
Alex

#38 7 years ago

#40 7 years ago

Sunday evening bump for someone in the PA MD area that wants a LOTR? Seems like everyone everywhere else wants it!

#41 7 years ago

If you can connect up with Chris, that would be pretty easy. Sunbury is only about an hour ride up the river. (You can pick me up some LED'S while you are up there. I burned out the Frosted Yellows in my TAF in like a week.)

#42 7 years ago

Man, if I didn't love my wh20 so much.... sounds like a great trade on paper!

#43 7 years ago

OK I am going to be listing this machine for sale shortly in a new thread. Anyone have an offer for it

-Alex

#44 7 years ago

-Alex

#49 7 years ago
