Item description

Here it is: the product of many weeks of hard work and much thought to make the ultimate Middle Earth experience. Everything one could want in this game has been rebuilt and installed by the best in the business with over 50 years of experience - there are no corners cut here in any way. Playfield and Plastics are in excellent shape with precautions taken to protect them. I take the cabinet down to the bare wood and build it like a new factory game with not a spec of dirt left in the end. Most of the metal has been powder coated a custom ordered 2-coat colour called Crimson Fire. The rest as well as the plastic door accents and lockdown bar tournament plug have been plated in real 24 karat gold. Sound system puts the Whitestar sounds to shame with full cinematic sound package. Boards are super clean with no flipper issues like LOTR can be known for.

Other upgrades include:
Alternate Cabinet (Painted inside and out)
Pinsound Package with some BEEFY speakers
Colour LCD Display
Interactive Cabinet Lighting throughout
Interactive Cointaker backbox
New Translite
Custom colour-coordinated playfield parts throughout - neon posts, red pop bumpers, standup targets, decalled flippers, neon top lanes, red outlanes, red Pippin shot bumper, orange flasher caps
Fully protected by Cliffys
Power Blades
Unobtainable Interactive 2Niro Palantir Orb + Ring of Fire
Brand New Balrog parts
Custom Playfield Decals throughout
Full LEDs, strips, spotlights
Gandalf's Staff, Lit Tower, Ring Lens Focus, Mount Doom, all the mods
Gold T-molding
New flipper assemblies with special LOTR flipper coils
3D Start Button & Coin Inserts
Too much to list...

Will consider trade offers; local is ideal. Would love to see:
