Quoted from PW79:
Dogh. I forgot to put "with all due respect" in front of my post
Answer me this tho Rob. If it's such a great theme why such a low run? Great themes & great games sell right? Stern likes money right? They're not in it for us.
Stern said from the get go they weren't making many of even the premiums.
Fake demand for a low demand game.
High prices to make it seem like an affluent artifact for only the most elite pinball collector.
High prices to offset the cost of a low number of units being sold.
I dont think the Kapow partnership is why its expensive either. I think whatever extra price was paid for their shit was washed out by the cash savings of rehashing a game & using pre-made animations from another project.
Either I'm paranoid or I'm the only fucker here with a brain lol
Hey, that was just a lazy post on my part, as I didn't specify what I thought you were wrong about. Obviously it's all personal opinion based on various factors including being, as you put it, "old AF"
But for me personally, hearing that Batman theme music, and seeing those characters on the LCD screen had a far larger impact on me from a pure nostalgia standpoint than pretty much any pinball theme released since I've been in the hobby. It immediately took me back to when I was a kid, and my younger brother and I would watch BM when we'd get home from school (they were already re-runs by then...so I'm not quite as old AF as you might think).
Yes, nostalgia can be a powerful thing, and despite my earlier criticism of the overly colorful artwork, I am more excited about this theme and this pin than anything else currently being released, including Alien (even though I think Alien is the better overall theme for a pin).
My reaction to this pin has changed a lot over the last few days. In other words, I too feel like I've been "bi-polar" on this title.
