Quoted from LTG:

They easily could have been. When LOTR came out, Jack ( Pinball Sales ) was a big Stern distributor.
LTG : )

You're Too Fast! I deleted my post 30 seconds after posting it......remembering just that.

Quoted from rubberducks:

Had the theme been a little more polished, the launch better orchestrated, and the price designed to really hit Stern where it hurts, this could have easily been a 5000-6000 units before the end of 2017 machine.
...
If they'd gone after $6995 / $7800 / $8500 I'm sure it would have been the first 10,000 seller since the 90s, and got there pretty damn quickly.

Yes, this! My biggest disappointment is that I wanted to see Jack knock it out of the park for a grand slam and I think we all saw the fastball straight down the middle but we got a line drive instead. Solid hit, but could have been (I suppose still could be) something that redefines the market.

Quoted from solarvalue:

Check out Pinball Magazines great interview, it explains a lot about the decisions made when designing this game:
http://www.pinball-magazine.com/?p=3133

Interesting article. I found it interesting that Pat's justification for current pin pricing was the idea that the game would bring in 500 per week and an operators invested would be paid off after only 20 weeks... um... wrong.

Ops split the take... so after 20 weeks your only halfway paid off and now your into the downward side if earnings. I think at the current price point 1.5 - 2 years is more realistic. Thats of course not counting resale which maybe he is? Or they are cutting the ops out and saying locations should directly buy.

Quoted from Manic:

Y
Personally I can't believe *anybody* would buy a machine at 8k and up. They are simply not worth it comparing cost/fun factor IMO.

Numbers less than 1000 may be on the pessimistic side but I will be amazed if more than 2000 are sold at current prices.

Everybody has their own definition of awesome.

Awesome game. I'm totally past the cell phone theme that I hated when it was announced.

So much angst about a toy for grown men.

lol. "I am going to hold dear the existing games you made while at Williams / Bally and Stern and assume you were under some mental and emotional stress when you designed this mess."

wow...just wow. I think the op was projecting a bit about his own stress levels

Thought this was also hilarious..."Drones tiny compared to electric guy, and scale between two figures on playfield are completely off."

Even though there are a couple quirks I'd love to see resolved (left wireform, theatre magnet SDTM), it's still one of the best overall pinball games ever made. Appeals to a spectrum of players and is loaded with fun features.

Yeah, who would have thought since the release of Dialed In, the industry would have released so many turds that it is now the home run of last year.

#362 1 year ago

It is a Nice playing fast pin. However i feel the code could be a little better and more complete.

although I disagree, this is pretty funny. I literally laughed out loud.

As long as somebody gets a laugh, I can take all the thumbs down the serious folks on here want to give me.

#365 1 year ago

I’m curious if this was sarcasm? More complete?
