With two new works of art recently released pinball collectors are surely in a quandary as to which way to go. Mind you most serious and passionate collectors will say "I'd like BOTH" and "I will get BOTH in time." But the question is designed to ask which of these highly acclaimed machines would you favor buying TODAY. Obviously, the other one may be purchased a bit down the road. Since Jersey Jack's LE on PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN is the poll position choice over the very expensive CE and the bare bones SE, we are talking around 9,500. CGC's MONSTER BASH re-make is a cool 8,000 for the much-favored LE with the topper. So, obviously anyone who chooses the JJP game will be paying 1,500 more, but all things considered that higher price point is warranted.
So, fellow Pinsiders, which machine would YOU choose first to purchase or which machine did you already choose and why?
Thank you in advance. I am leaving the "poll" as answers in the comments. BOTH machines are supreme masterpieces and are rightly in Pinside's Top 5 at present so this is no easy decision for sure.
