Since these machines are fascinating and expensive, I wanted to make sure I polled the experts to help me make our decision. We've never owned a pin, and I've only played them sporadically in my youth. But my daughter (11 yrs old) claims she took a liking to playing pinball. I want one for the whole family, and one that has staying power. We have a showroom in our hometown and recently put our hands on a few. We've narrowed it down between Ghostbusters Pro, or Stranger Things Premium.
Part of me thinks if we make the jump up to Stranger Things Premium, then maybe I'll just bite the bullet and go up to GB Premium. Also, the showroom has a GB Pro NIB for only $200 more than the floor model. I'm not sure how many plays the floor model has, but he has upgraded the side wall art on the inside.
What are other things I need to consider? I read the newer Sterns have issues with ghosting, dimpling, chipping, etc. I've read the GB code makes it amazing, and the Stranger Things code still needs development.
