After three long years of searching and contemplating it is finally home
Congrats man. It even has the brass rail mod, nice!
Does that sword tip decal look cool in person? Looks pretty good in the pic.
What s a brass rail mod? I didn't even know that was a decal, I thought LOTR came that way, oops
It looks really good in person but I don't know what it looks like without it as this is really the first time I've ever played a LOTR. The pervious owner pretty much did everything that needs to be done to it. Brand new plastic set and the LE clear top plastics to hold the figures on so he didn't have to drill the new plastics. All the Cliffy's for the game and all the mods. The POTD mod, ring hole flasher, crystal ball red eyeball thing mod, all figures have their weapons and extra figures too, PinballBulbs LED kit, all new ramps and switches and posts, golem shooter rod, drano's black mirror blades, a plastic ball diverter which I just found out I should take off, I forget what else but a few other thing too. Awesome game to play though! And the seller was a super nice dude, super helpful and generous!
Congrats Ryan. Looks really nice.
Forgot to mention. Big Thanks to Mike Wong for setting this deal up and getting me a LOTR. I think I'm going to make a T-shirt that says "you can't go Wrong with Wong"
Congrats, that's the best looking LOTR I have ever seen. Mike hooked me up on my last 2 pins as well, awesome guy. I wonder if you need to get rid of one to make room nudge nudge.
LOL, if I do I will make sure I contact you. With Wong as my agent of course
Custom pinside mod. It replaced an ugly clear plastic over top of the wireform above the left inlane, just below the shire VUK return. Those two hex posts on the siderail formerly held said plastic in place.
Good decision in taking that diverter off, you're going to need all of the souls that you can get.
Congrats man! Wicked game, cool mods too, I like the planitar eye mod always thought on it..
Thanks and glad to have helped you secure two pins that were on your wish list. What can I say some people talk as if they have all these "connections" meanwhile all they have usually is an angle in it for themselves by acting as a middleman in helping someone get a pin to make a cut. That is not how I roll and any buyer or seller who has ever asked me to help can probably speak as to how smooth their deal went with my assistance in setting things up.
Congrats Ryan and that was quite the drive you made from Ottawa to Windsor but I guess it was worth it in the end. I know what it is like to finally get a pin you have been on the hunt for a while. This is probably one of my favorite pics from McMean who I helped secure a LOTR which was also on his wish list for 3+ years. Nothing like getting a call first thing when you wake up: "Good morning, I just spent $5000 of your money while you were sleeping last night. Now go pick up your pin "
Ya Mike got a few for me when I was buying lots of pins. Great help. Good thing Mike is a great guy. Imagine if someone had his influence and connections and was a real dick. He could prevent you from getting a pin too..
Glad you finally got it.. Of course you should've just bought mine last year and you might have made it to Valinor by now
Thank you also for the drop-off along the way.
Someone asked about the brass rail mod
Here's a pic on my old LOTR.
It was hand made by some guy on pinside. Nice little mod. I always hated that flat clear plastic there.
Congrats! One less person looking for a LOTR, means more chances for us still looking!
I couldn't help notice that Tron nicely wrapped up. Since that's my grail pin, I would be more than happy to provide an address where it can be delivered to.
Congrats, Ryan! I remember steering you away from that one at Starburst.. has it been that long? Heh
Funny enough that Tron ended up in my hands for about a year after I completely tricked it out (minus shaker). I sold it to bigbossfan for $6500 and he sold for the same to meegis who is currently enjoying it.
