FS Medieval Madness Remake Preorder Gold $8000

Added: April 7th, 2015 Ended: April 17th, 2015
Condition: NIB - New in box (distributor/business)

Item description

*** SOLD [phone number removed] Payment Received ***

I have decided to just keep my original MM. I have a Medieval Madness Remake in the gold trim. It was preordered through an official PPS authorized vendor.

Expected to be a 2nd batch shipment after the Stern move, so Juneish. My vendor does not charge stupid shipping rate like we have heard stories from other people.

I can include a full set of cliffy protectors, merlin hole protector, and complete plastic protector set for an additional $120.

I have a $1000 deposit on the remake. The way it would work is, you send me $1000 to the authorized vendor, and you take over my spot. You will be contacted about 2 weeks before the game is ready to ship. Shipping will be roughly $250. I will put in you in contact with the vendor so you can verify everything before any money changes hands.

If it doesn't sell then no big deal. If interested just PM me.

You have an original and also bought a remake

#3 5 years ago

A nice original MM always wins over a remake IMO. Remakes are for those that don't have or can't find a nice original for a decent price.

I expected to keep the remake and sell the original. Since the remake was supposed to have a lot of new features I would simply sell my original for close to the same price.... seemed like a no brainer.

Regardless I have just decided to keep my original.

Not always. I'd much rather have a NIB MMR over a 20 year old game. If the game plays the same seems like a no brainer to me.

Yes, I'm here and ready! Many are wising up just as predicted.

#9 5 years ago

I'd stick with the original if I had to decide over the two but since I don't own either I'd would gladly buy a MMR if one was closer. GLWTS

I feel the exact same way.

#11 5 years ago
Quoted from NinJaBooT:

That was my original plan as well.

I was going to have MM and MMR side by side for a short period of time and then sell the original, assuming that the original (<2000 plays, HUO) would sell for significantly more than the cost of MMR.

In hindsight, that wasn't the brightest idea.

I want to keep busy in this thread all day. I didn't plan to use him right away... what the hell!

#13 5 years ago

I myself would rather have original also so I can do my own insert leds but mainly so I can work on it and swap boards if needed to trouble shoot which no way you can do with the new one however after a few years and the new boardset proves itself reliable I will consider a new one depending on what they are selling for

Yeah you can't change LEDs , and you can't put a full color dmd . It's a very good pin if you want it in a route .

And the le's are going to get a colordmd style upgrade so that argument is moot.

Some people will prefer one; some people will prefer the other. MM vs. MMr will never have an answer that satisfies everyone.

I personally would rather have a brand new game appear at my house NIB. Actually, scratch that, my first choice would be a HEP restore of an original . . . but short of that I want NIB all day long.

Not if it isn't as good as what's available to the original...

When colorization is actually complete, released and proves to be as good as what color DMD offers it will be "moot" until then it's a potential big difference!

It's a for sale thread.... not yet another mm vs MMr thread....

Let the guy sell his machine.

#20 5 years ago

^ Thanks sir!

#21 5 years ago

TGIF. A lot of pms saying they want to take my spot, then they disappear lol. If it doesn't sell by Monday I may just keep it and figure something out.

#22 5 years ago

Bumping this up for Doostur. I did a deal with him today and he is as honest as they come. Straightforward, easy to deal with, very nice person. If I were in the market, I would certainly deal with him, for what it is worth.

#23 5 years ago

Thats nice of you to make this offer to Pinsiders. If I were in the market for an MM I would have taken you up on it.

#24 5 years ago

Thanks everyone. I have a pinsider in the process of taking my spot. Will follow up Tuesday. So for now it's "pending".

Edit: Potential buyers flaked.

#25 5 years ago

Still for sale. Last 2 people flaked. Never had this much trouble selling anything before ha...

Edit: This will be my last bump. If not I'll just keep it.

Well the project itself has seemed a bit flaky from the start...

Some people just want to enjoy the game and will buy whatever is less expensive.
Given the choice, I would absolutely buy a NIB remake over an original even at the same cost.

Except the decent price part you mentioned....didn't exist.

Any nice MM used to require a wheel barrel full of cash...now it doesn't.

There's an advert in Minnesota right now where a guy wants to trade his "nice original" plus 2k for an MMr.

I guess MM is a 5k pin now. THAT's a decent price.

Was that the decent price you were talking about?

It comes with a Color LCD display. You don't need to put a ColorDMD in it. Color code will be coming soon as an update.

#31 5 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

They announced that a year and a half ago when they announced the game. It must really be giving them fits if they haven't been able to do it in that time.

Nothing! But I would think it might have been a good use of their time while waiting for "safe" transformers to arrive. Color DMD is cranking them out now at a record pace....

We're not there in the factory...I have no reason to judge how they're using their time. They said they're doing it, so they're doing it. When it's done, it's done. The color display is already in the game....so ....there ya go.

#35 5 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

They said they're doing it, so they're doing it.

This is pinball! Does everything that is said is going to get done get done? I think it probably will though. I would hate to be the guy signing those $8000 refund checks.

Why would there be refund checks? There has been absolutely, positively, NO guarantee that the games will ever include this feature. The last time this was debated Greg posted on the PPS forums and Rick confirmed what I'm saying. "It is being worked on" is not a guarantee you can take to the bank.

I actually do believe they will be able to do it and they will offer it eventually. But the fact that you guys bought the game without it for $8k says there is little hope you won't be asked to pay. IMHO.

#37 5 years ago

Success for MMr is not defined as making an existing MM owner want to "trade."

Success (IMO) was producing a game good enough to make a non-MM owner willing to buy one.

In THAT respect, MMr is a success.

Good luck to the OP *Bump*

#38 5 years ago
Quoted from viper001:

Why would there be refund checks? There has been absolutely, positively, NO guarantee that the games will ever include this feature.

I don't know if Chicago Gaming made any such guarantee. But here is a quote from PPS, the license holder and head sales-pitcher for this project, from a year and a half ago on this forum when these first went on sale. The thread has since been closed down.-

"DMD Animations will be original currently are monochrome - although with a simple setting you can change the 'color' of the monochrome on the LCD to a bunch of colors (8 I think?). Next up would be the colorization, which will be done and just working on the approach for the art and the timing, etc"

So if I had sent in money to PPS because of this and other features that sold me on this machine and
any of them were missing or didn't happen in a reasonable amount of time, I don't care how much I liked the rest of the machine, I would want my money back. I guess I'm just stubborn that way.

#39 5 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

if I had sent in money

#40 5 years ago

I did send money. But decided to get it back and wait and see. I am happy with my decision. I hope everyone else is too and gets what they were promised.

Exactly. The logic behind why the originals are dropping in price for copies baffles me.

Because as everyone knows classic Mustangs are worthless now because new Mustangs are out.

THEY WILL BE BETTER IN THE LONG RUN. ASK THE PEOPLE WITH WIZARD OF OZ, THEY WORK GREAT. lol

Bump for a good seller...and back on topic.

What baffles me is why people were paying 10 to 18 k for an original.

You could say the same thing about any pinball with values that fluctuate.

Also kudos to the "thumbs down" posts I got previously. Pinball is the only world where A: people think something original is worth less than a remake and B: preorders and payment in full on items with people and businesses with no history is given a thumbs up over reputable businesses!

A for logic everyone!

But I apologize, I just realized this was an actual FS thread vs just ranting about MM so carry on.

#46 5 years ago
Quoted from DreamTR:

MM prices weren't fluctuating, they were going steadily up beyond what was affordable or reasonable, until MMR came and pulled it back to something at least sort of approaching sanity.

A: people think something original is worth less than a remake

Nah more like people think brand new is better than used for 20 years.

and B: preorders and payment in full on items with people and businesses with no history is given a thumbs up over reputable businesses!

PPS and Chicago Coin (founded 1931) are businesses with no history? Hahaha.

Chicago Gaming is not Chicago Coin. The original Stern company in the late 1970's bought the original Chicago Coin.

Absolutely correct, my bad. CGC has been around for 14 years.
