says the people that bought the original for $10k+ but give me a brand new factory fresh one any day
Quoted from DreamTR:
Pinball is the only world where A: people think something original is worth less than a remake and
Because you are not talking about a collectable to some people. You are talking about a machine, and with machinery - newer is usually better. When I buy a pin, I want something fun that I am going to enjoy. I don't care about value if I ever go to sell it. I can't think of one reason I would buy a 20 year old machine for more money than a NIB.
I would feel like crap if I paid over $10 grand for a old used machine and now I can buy a new one for much less. But that's just me, if others want an original great. Just not sure why people have to get on the forum and bash the new ones, unless it's some feeble attempt to protect the value of the old ones.
