I mean the whole reason I jumped on MMr before Rick was even done speaking was...MM FOR $8,000!!! Crazy cheap! Now that the dust has settled will we all like the new stuff? Will it be as easy to mod? Surely we ALL know the answer to that... some guys here love new, some guys love old, it is pinball after all. (oh where is my meme skill)
Personally - I have never played a pinball I don't like. MM is awesome, not my favorite and AFM is better, but it's the only Monty Python pin so it's a MUST have imho for a collector, or at least me. Being able to buy one and have it nice and shiny for $8,000 is, well, a Godsend for us. Before this, MM was a major investment, a big decision. "I could have all these pins instead of spending 15k, or more to have a killer restoration".
And once again, once the dust has settled even more, I think we will find reasons to still like the WMS version. I for one think you can have WMS MM valued at well more than MMr and everything in PPS model still works. Time will tell and while I do not have any skin in the game for MMr except having one on order, for AFM I definitely have skin in there. My McCune high end restore should be here within a couple weeks.
edit: I will be ordering an AFMr if it is next. Having both , right next to each other, even if only for a few months would be too cool
