Here is something you do not see everyday! We have just acquired this beautiful Home Use Only pinball machine from a fellow collector. This game was never used commercially!
Below are some of the features of the game:
The goal of THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ pinball machine is to collect the Elf Rings, the Dwarf Rings, and the mortal men rings, thereby forming The One Ring™. Then destroy The One Ring™ through collecting all three movies. THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ pinball machine offers non-stop action at its best in the form of the following mechanisms:
A Balrog toy that pivots when hit by the ball, revealing the jump ramp that leads to The One Ring™;
A magnet in the center of The One Ring™ which pulls the ball in and then feeds another ramp shaped in the form of Aragorn's legendary Narsil sword;
Four multi-ball modes, including one for each movie, as well as for Gollum;
The Orthanc and Barad-dur Towers. Players can knock down Barad-dur, which also features the eye of Sauron;
A small playfield in the upper left hand corner represents that of The Paths of the Dead;
Twelve action figures from Play Along toys interspersed throughout the playfield.
The pinball features original speech from Elijah Wood (Frodo), as well as John Rhys-Davies (Gimli the Dwarf). Backglass and cabinet artwork for THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ was created by artist Jerry Vanderstelt, while playfield art was designed by Kevin O'Connor. Sounds and special effects were produced by Chris Granner. Rules are by Keith Johnson on his first outing since The Simpsons/Pinball Party™.
