eBay Find: TPIR '94 Tabletop Pinball

The description says this was a promotional giveaway to affiliates. Pretty snazzy giveaway, as I had this machine as a kid, but with different artwork - it was called Astro Shooter, and I think it sold for about $90-100.

It's a fun little machine - not $350 worth of fun in my book, but maybe it is for you. Also, note the show logo - I wonder if they were considering this all-caps rendition before reverting to something more traditional.

They used that logo primarily in TV Guide ads and commercials for the show.

I had one of these back in the day; the station where I work had run the series (this was a year or so before I started), and this thing sat in the lunchroom for a couple of years.  I snagged it and stashed it at home for a year or so before tossing it when moving. 

I would feel guilty trying to pawn that thing off on some unsuspecting fanboi for three digits.

\And $57 for shipping?!?

I wouldn't. Fools and their money and all that.

It's a cool novelty item and all, but I see vintage pinball machines from the 40s-60s going for less than that. If I was gonna drop $300+, I think I'd go for the older games.

I know it's a tabletop, but I didn't see any dimensions on the listing. About how large is this thing?
