Quoted from schudel5:

Any way to finance or win this pizza? $80 for a medium isn't that bad, but I just don't have that kind of coin to toss.

Lol. Must have for my Supreme shrine. How much for a slice?

Quoted from Deaconblooze:

98 was 20 years ago. I know, tough to swallow.

88. 30 years ago.

Bally Manufacturing sold their pinball division to Williams in 1988, and Williams was allowed to release games under the Bally name, but a true pinball game made by Bally the company hasn't happened since 1988.

One should not get stoned simply because they have a dream.

Then cash advance the heck out of any credit cards you have and go on and live the dream.
Or if you have any money at all socked away for retirement, now would be a good time to use it.

Quoted from local_single:

Supreme is a lifestyle brand and this fits into my lifestyle.

Broke with an overpriced pinball machine is a lifestyle you want to live?

In my experience, that can be the best way to hook up with a woman with real money!

Do you think the OP would only use Supreme Gasoline?

Absolutely, it fits his lifestyle and he owns his car. With the exception of rent and his pinball payment he has money to burn so why not?

I'm pretty sure the demon uses supreme gas.

Those leading the lifestyle would likely seek out a vehicle that only required Supreme fuel. Makes complete sense, just like the rest of this thread.

Some rattle cans and a few bumper stickers could get you 80% there -- the coding/sound effects might be a little tricky?

How in the hell did the Supremes get a pin before Duran Duran? I am tired of music themed pins.

If the code can be updated as we normally would on a modern Stern, perhaps the Supreme code would work on the Spider Man game (as Shrek/Family guy can be played on either game I believe)? EDIT: Nevermind \/\/

EDIT: Looking at the pics, I see there are some other differences (DMD size, etc.). So...the "Supreme" game is actually more of a down-grade than I thought (looks like SM has a larger, color screen and the Supreme is smaller/solid red [I was never very familiar with the "home" SM])

If there is anything I have learned about collectors it’s that they love to show off their collection. Let’s see it OP. Show us some of your displayed stuff. And be sure to put a note in there saying “hi Pinside” so we know it’s legit and not stolen internet pics. Show us how wrong we are and how awesome a collection of Supreme stuff looks.

Do they sell like re-theme kits? Could I buy a spiderman and reskin it?

Lmao that's a lot of effort that's asking me to take 1/3 of my closet and drawers out, like it's displayed all over my room. I could show you some of what I can easily get to. I have a list of everything I have on my macbook if you'd like

Quoted from local_single:

While official re-theme kits have existed in the past (for other, older games), and at times alternate decals/translites are available, most re-themes involve a lot of custom work (easier with non-DMD/LCD games to avoid re-coding). If the screen and system matched up in the way Family Guy/Shrek work (essentially a manufacturer re-theme [both official, non-kit]), then it wouldn't be nearly as hard to re-theme the SM if you could simply replace the art and swap in Supreme code, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Doesn't mean it's not possible, but there are several other differences (entire backbox design +hinges, coindoor, lockdown bar, plunger, cabinet looks longer--all upgrades to the SM version) that would need to be addressed, and as far as any collector value goes, I can't imagine you'd really want a non-original anyway.

Would it look something like this?

Anyways supreme makes wacky object all the time. Hatches, fire extinguishers, crowbars I could go on; do I use any of them no, I just display them, they're nice and they look cool.

You said you displayed them yourself, so I thought you could easily take some pics. But now they are suddenly in boxes. My apologies, you can see where I got confused.

Quoted from TractorDoc:

It would have looked exactly like that but you just posted the pic he was going to use. Now he’ll have to dig deeper into google for another collection pic.

People, this thread is all BS!

We know, but its like the car wreck comparison. . . we can't help but look at it.

Well I guess I'm one of the few that financed my way through pinball purchases. I used MBNA credit card to do so with some loopholes here in Canada. I'm sure they're similar promos in the states and most likely better.

0% balance transfer for 12 months with a 1% transfer fee. So if let's say I borrowed $5000 my only fee to borrow $5000 for 1 year is $50. Now here is where most people mess up. You must pay the minimum every month in order to stay on the promotional rate. If you miss a payment you default to 20%+ interest. The other thing is the balance must be paid off before the end of the term.

WHAT I DID
I applied for a line of credit before making the purchase. Once line of credit approve I paid with my credit card that gave 2% cash back ($5000, and got $100 cash back at the end of the year). Before the month was up I got a balance transfer for 1 year for 0% and the 1% charge (- $50). I paid money here and there throughout the year and ended up with a balance of let's say $900 at the end of the year. Before the promo was up I paid the balance with the line of credit.

I then immediately reapplied for a second credit card from the same company but I didn't ask about the promo rate. Once I got the new card, I asked to transfered the allowable blance from the old card to the new hence merging the cards together. Since this was a new card, I could apply for another promo term of 0% for 12 months. Asked for $5000 + $900, to cover the balance on the line of credit, for a total of $5900 and bought another machine.

When all was said and done I had paid $0 interest on my payment and ended with more cash in my wallet because of the cash back at the end of the year.

Yes you have to be disciplined and jump through a few hoops but I found this system works for me. I get to enjoy the game and pay it chunks at a time without paying interest.

Supreme, recommended by 10 out of 10 posers everywhere.

#130 10 months ago

I gotta hand it to Supreme. You can hear the marketing reps laughing. To take just regular objects, throw a name on them and charge twice as much is genius.

#131 10 months ago

I wonder how much p*ssy I'd never get if I wore this supa' dope Supreme outfit to da' club?

1000% yes. Please do this. And please document the step by step progress for us. That would be the the best Pinside thread of all time.

No like half is on display but stuff like my 9/11 relief tee are in bags for safe keeping. Most my my winter clothes so sweaters and jackets for the most part are tucked away in storage boxes or. My ceramic treys have stuff them them and half my mugs and cups in the kitchen. It would deadass be like an hour worth of work to move and put everything back

I just don't wanna move my Gundams and BE@RBRICK, to reach certain things to lay all my shit out on the bed for one pic. I got the what I can but this is just the surface and I don't feel comfortable with my entire room being on display for the internet, but there's shit on the walls and on book shelves too.

I suppose we all have stuff that we like/collect that others might not understand. I have a tractor collection so who am I to judge (even though I have in my previous posts ).

If a supreme pinball is the way you want to go I wish you the best of luck in your quest. I'd just suggest you not put yourself in heaps of debt to do it.
