I know its hard to narrow it down to only 5. It seems whenever I set my sights on a game I want, a different one pops up that I wasnt even thinking about and I grab it. Then putting the game I was searching for further on my wait list.
Sure, I could find any game I want and pay top dollar and have it shipped to California, but arn't we all looking for a "Good Deal"? Not to screw anyone out of a pin or get screwed. I really don't want to pay shipping costs. So that leaves me looking for games in California. I don't mind driving a few hours to get a pin. I don't mind having to do repairs. As long as both parties are happy with the deal. Anyways, I think it would fun to see what everyone has in mind this year. I hope to get 1 of the 5 on my list.

1. Whirlwind
2. Metallica
3. Earthshaker
4. Aerosmith
5. Sing A Long

I do have some projects I need to finish up this year. I have a totally restored Jumping Jack that I need to finish getting running. Its about 95% done. I also have a Phantom of the Opera that I have a NOS playfield that I need to swap and shop out the game. Then I have a brand new Wade Krause Sky Jump and Atlantis playfiled I need to swap.

#12 2 years ago

Ahh the joys of 1st world problems.....

#14 2 years ago

TNA
Big Guns
Sopranos
NBA fastbreak
Another Early Stern would be cool.

#15 2 years ago

I'm shooting for some grail pins.
Cosmic Gunfight
Warlok
Quicksilver
Strange World
Frontier/Barracora
I'll be happy if I find any one of them this coming year, honestly.

#16 2 years ago

I’d be happy with one game, but if I suddenly found myself standing in a pile of money...

Elvira 3
Medieval Madness
Attack from Mars
Indiana Jones
Total Nuclear Annihilation

#17 2 years ago

Sorry to report I can't even think of that many.(5) I have a room problem and maybe I would sell one pin for another but not another 4 that I own.

I have one for sale and plan to replace it most likely with Star Wars. That seems to be the low hanging fruit.

#18 2 years ago

I would like to get one of the following:

Attack From Mars
The Hobbit
Dialed in
Iron Man
Lord of the Rings

#19 2 years ago

This year I would like add one of these:

Attack from mars remake
Monster bash
The shadow
CFTBL
WOZ

I was very fortunate to add one of my top 10 (LOTR) to my lineup this year and hopefully I’ll add another from this short list within next year.

#20 2 years ago

One or more of these games:

Defender
Cosmic Gunfight
Quicksilver
Warlok
Nineball

#21 2 years ago

The only change I want to (maybe) make is to sell gnr and replace it with mmr. Probably won’t happen for a couple of years though. I have settled on 3 as the optimum number of pins for my gameroom.

#22 2 years ago

1. Elwin's first Stern game

that is it so far.

#23 2 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

1. Fast and Furious
2. Red Hot Chili Peppers
3. 3:10 To Yuma
4. Death Wish
5. Hawaii 5-O

Oh it’s like that huh?
Well then,

1. Care Bears
2. Die Hard
3. Die Hard 2: Die Harder
4. Steve Buschemi
5. Sublime

#24 2 years ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

TNA
Big Guns
Sopranos
NBA fastbreak
Another Early Stern would be cool.

A few fast breaks here in NE Indiana for sale. I think asking price was $3500 for both

#25 2 years ago

The next five I can get a good deal on

#26 2 years ago

A TRON Legacy Vault Edition (c'mon Stern, everyone wants it) would probably be the only new game I'd entertain.

In the more realistic side of things:

I wouldn't mind a Getaway I could score one for a decent price.

I've always kinda wanted a Jokerz for some reason.

PinBot would be cool (now that I don't have a JackBot anymore)

Swords of Fury would be really awesome.

#27 2 years ago

My newest machine was manufactured in 1999, so I guess something made in this century wouldn't be a bad idea... maybe TSPP?

I was lucky enough to pick up a HUO LOTR at a good price in 2017. Hope grab one of the above in 18. Of course I added a colordmd, LED OCD, stadium lighting, etc and now have too much $$$ in my LOTR now. But plan to keep it and enjoy it.
