You can click on the arch one and rotate them if you edit the post. It’s a blue button appears at the bottom of the picture when you click on it.

You know what it looks like. Zach the seller knows what it looks like. Most Pinsiders know what it looks like.

A lot more people cruise Pinside than belong. And new people thinking about buying a pinball machine, might not know what in creation a Hot Wheels pinball is.

Look at all the complaining poor quality pictures generate here. Or might think that the seller can't be bothered to post the pictures oriented right.

Best to make it easy as possible for potential buyers. No matter how much we know.

I have to say the complaining about the pics not being rotated properly is ridiculous. Game is basically brand new and it's hot wheels.

Let's not over complicate it.

Works fine for me. Just rotated a picture I posted like 10 times. Once you press it it has about a second delay, but it works.

Not an appealing theme to many.
Combined with the uninspired layout and price point for how stripped down it is, it is a game likely not to hold the attention of most.

Love that you are on the team now and what you will bring but man do they need to find a decent theme for once.

Why would a person buy it in the first place if they're not into the theme?

Quoted from Whysnow:

You can like the theme or not like it, and for that matter like the game or not like it. But I think it's hard to objectively say that Hot Wheels is stripped down for a NIB game at its price point (similar to a Stern Pro). Hot Wheels comes standard with multiple spinners, multiple up/down drop targets, multiple saucers, multiple ramps, boatloads of targets, a multi-purpose magnet, high-speed kicker lane, ~140 independently-controlled full-RGB LEDs, side art blades, lenticular backpanel art, real backglass, a good sound system, and I believe the free shaker motor promo is still running. What part of that is stripped down?

#29 3 months ago

After the last two posts all I saw was whore stripped down. Maybe I should of bought this machine.

It is less than Stern pro in total package for more money. Sorry but you are going up against games like JP2, maiden, TWD, Deadpool, gotg, etc.

Those games all have more to them, more cohesive assets, an actual toy (everybody wants a toy to interact with), and those games are $1000 less.

AP just won’t be able to compete by putting out less and asking more.

If you were actually AT stern price point then I think you had a chance. Reality is that the game won’t hold value and will settle at or below Oktoberfest and Houdini prices down the road and collectors now see that trend.

From a marketing perspective IMHO and exp, you should have just said this was a limited run of 750 from the start as that would have helped sell them all out and even a slightly higher price point.

Instead they picked a poor theme, made the key feature the spinning stick toy of distraction, and priced it higher than the competition.

You will get your few vocal fans and I am happy for them that they got a theme and game they like. Reality is that these have zero buzz and even distributors are dropping them for less already.

Sorry and hope the next theme is something that can let your talents shine. What you are bringing to that team as for code and overall integration is great and the first real thing to make me consider AP as viable for purchase.

Hot Wheels is a great theme. Congrats on pending sale!

If you liked that, you'll love the play dough theme coming next!!

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Because we love pinball and will play anything. I hate iron maiden as a theme. I bought that game.

Virtually my entire collection of 30 machines are based on music themes, but yet i'm anxiously to finally get my Hotwheels this week. The game looks fantastic.

Stern games you mentioned have an advantage because of layout, code and theme but I don't think anyone is buying your argument that Hot Wheels is more stripped down than a Stern pro.

The Stern examples given are some of the best rated pins ever, so hard to argue that American Pinball doesn’t have plenty of work to do to really compete with the 800 pound gorilla, but that doesn’t mean that HW isn’t an excellent game and value in its own right. And from what I’ve seen the code is outstanding; again, not all time great but equal or better than plenty of top Sterns. Personally, I don’t put much weight on a static dinosaur, bobble head, spinning pizza or umpteenth bash toy, and would much rather have great geometry, code and personality. Not to mention great cabinet & playfield build.

#37 3 months ago

Fort Wayne Pinball (aka Wizards World) just unboxed theirs, looking forward to putting some quarters in it.

#38 3 months ago

Wish a Hot Wheels game had a loop or even a jump utilizing a ramp.

#39 3 months ago

Ninja turtles is more kiddie corny than hot wheels.

AP did a good job of making hot wheels a cool integrated pinball for all ages. You can’t really make ninja turtles cool, well unless you have ninja turtle bedsheets and comforter in a bedroom of arcades.

#40 3 months ago

I do think the center spinning toy is a fail, but it still looks like a fun game and I would not mind owning one someday. I think my son would like it. I enjoy playing Oktoberfest and I look forward to checking out a Hot Wheels someday.

Agree the stick car is the weakest part of the package. If they had a car on some type of loop doing basically the same thing it may have tempered “what no loop, I’m out.” At least with current code it doesn’t constantly spin and interacts with game play in a meaningful, fun way. And the ModCouple tire stack mod makes it look pretty good.

#42 3 months ago
Quoted from luckymoey:

If they would have just taken it a step further? Maybe modders could save it? I don't mind the one on I500. If they could enclose a small Hotwheels inside a circular plastic shield and it would only spin during certain modes(I think this is already fixed in code?). Needs more cowbell, sticking a Hot Wheel on a rotating stick as main toy is weak sauce.

O/T can we collectively agree to stop saying Weak Sauce?? This also applies to Awesome sauce, AmazeBalls, Chillax, Totes and Whatevs. They really distract from the point of whatever you're saying, and frankly sound ridiculous. Just a friendly request. Thanks!

No way.
Weak sauce is much older than that other new shit; Diff'rent eras. I agree with all the other ones though.

#46 3 months ago

Also disagree . If it ain’t hate speech why try to control or limit another’s vocabulary ? Use what you’re comfortable with and then chilax ( first and last time I’ll ever use that word )

#47 3 months ago

Anybody arguing that hot wheels is "stripped down" mechanically compared to a stern pro is... seeing something different than I am.

You can like this or that more, but there is objectively "more" stuff that costs more to put on the playfield than any Stern pro I can think of since ~ 2010. You have to go back to games like WPT to maybe start getting an equal amount in terms of the mechanics.

I look forward to playing hot wheels someday, but in terms of hype excitement I would place it behind Turtles or Heist. But this could end up being the best player of the three; TBD! Too bad it will be a while before I find out for myself.

I don’t think it is has less that a stern pro, regardless, the question is which machine gives you more entertainment and fun for the dollar and those who have played Hot wheels, learned a little bit about the rules know, it offers a lot of fun, challenge and entertainment for the money.

I think people should play it before deciding if it is a better or worse value relative to other games. If you have not flipped it you really don’t know what the game offers.
