Quoted from txstargazer3:
Hi, I'm new to this thread as I am giving serious consideration to buying a NIB Batman 66 Premium now that JJP is having issues with Pirates.
Care to share any recommendations? Is the play on the Premium the same as the higher end versions? Thanks for sharing your experiences!
I'm sort of in the same place. I'm spending my JJPOTC $. I already got an IMDN pro on order, and wondering if I should bank the rest of the money or stretch it a bit and go for something else like bm66. I am still having a hard time with the BM66 price tag though. When you go into the $7500 ish range on a pin, you have to start looking at what other pins you can get; like AFMr-LE, DI, WOZ, next CGC remake etc. ..though some of those others are a tidy bit higher, its not by much and they do offer more. A lot of arguments I hear is the price is buying you the theme and license; if that's the case I'm out. I'm looking for lyman magic with great gameplay strategies and replay ability factor for a small lineup, not the nostalgia theme.
That said, I do have to eat some crow on bm66. Way back when I posted something along the lines, and honestly felt, what a waste of a resource it is to put lyman on such a turd as bm66 - how in the world can lyman make this chum bucket a good game. Well shit, he proved me wrong. In lyman we trust even though I didn't lol. But, does that still make it a good value pin for its price point compared to other games around the same price range?
