Item description

When I acquired my KOD in 2005, I wanted the best example of this classic highly collectable pinball machine. Ideally that would have been a NIB KOD, but that was not to be found. I got instead what I thought was the next best thing when my machine arrived from Seattle, and I saw and played it. The shipper was Tim Meighan (TimMe), who I consider the best restoration expert in the United States. My opinion. Well...maybe not just my opinion from the comments of others on this forum.

I uploaded many photos. I thought a bit about what I should list as the price for a machine of this quality. I looked at prior listings and can't find a single example of a machine that was previously listed or sold that was even close to the collector quality condition of this KOD for comparison. It does not seem like a machine like this comes around too often.

I indicated that local pickup is preferred. This is my preference because if you purchase the machine, I would like you to see it and play it any make sure it exceeds your expectations. If you really want it shipped to you, then that is fine with me if you will arrange for NAVL or another shipper to come pick it up (residential address). I have no problem removing the head and legs and wrapping the head and cabinet in furniture moving blankets. If it is shipped, please know that I can't be responsible for any issues when you receive it.

Update 5/5/21: As I started to look over the machine to make sure everything is just right, I am noticing that the special is not lighting when it should. It does on the center in 3 ball mode, but not in the outlines in the 3 or 5 ball mode. As such, I am lowering the price at this point. Should I get that addressed before it sells, I may increase the price or not. I know it is way nicer than any KOD that has been sold here, but I also know that it is not Fathom or Funhouse.

Update 5/5/21: Glitch fixed (see forum discussion). I just had to reseat a bank. Now perfectly functioning.
