Quoted from iceman44:

Dangerwil,
I have an idea for you. Do a pay per view event on Twitch. Charge people $10 or $20 bucks and have a demolition party for the game
1) Take it up to the roof of a 3 story building, light it on fire, and drop it off Todd Tuckey style OR
2) Have the neighborhood kids take turns with a baseball bat pinata style. Then find a pick up truck with a grill guard and smash it into a million pieces!
I would drop $20 easily for either of the above
Glws!

no, the game is made and it is playable, just because it is not a deep game , does not mean it needs to be desroyed

#102 4 months ago

I'll give $3,000 to save it and put in my gameroom.

I'd just like to see it for entertainment value IF no one else wants to buy it.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

And you would take a Thunderbirds over an X-Men pro?
No, you wouldn't.
We are talking, you HAVE to spend $4,000 on one of those games. By court order.

man, that's a tough call there. I think i'd rather just pay the ticket.

A reminder that this is a for sale thread. Please post in the specific game thread about Thunderbirds manufacturing/quality/value and let the guy sell his game.

#107 4 months ago

This is turning into an infamous and controversial thread - it could increase the value of the Op's game. You could own the first Thunderbird that hit the secondary market and blew up a for sale thread.

Op needs to create a COA, print/laminate this thread and include it with the sale.

I say raise the price! Own a piece of history!

#108 4 months ago

I can’t wait to play the game. I loved the Thunderbirds series. Such a cool show from the 60’s!!! Game looks fine and fun. A good value for sure.

That's what the OP said. And here we are 10 plays in...

Had to go back and change my settings so I post a downvote. iceman44 's post serves no purpose in this FS topic.

GLWS! It looks like the machine is in imamaculate condition!

#115 4 months ago

What if we rigged it with explosives and detonated it 1960's style? While it was falling off Todd Tuckey's roof? Thunderbird 24 is go! F....A.....BOOOOM!

It’s a joke Francis. Lighten up

Mike brings a lot of BS on himself with his attitude. Unreal

Now you are talking! Op has a sense of humor

See. It’s F ing funny. It’s ok to laugh about it

#118 4 months ago

I like it more than The Mafia.

#119 4 months ago

If you were thinking of paying 5k nib for this game the fact it won’t resell for 4K should give you something to think on

#120 4 months ago

Can you please sell it to me for 3200?

#121 4 months ago

Honestly at $3200 I would instead just throw it on route instead of selling.

Somewhere in all this there is a very well priced pin for sale. BUMP

What pin is that? I only saw Thunderbirds for sale.

#125 4 months ago

See fellas mike from HomePin deactivates his account and the drama HE causes goes away and this poor guy loses his free bumps. Not fair for Mike to do that to someone that’s about to lose a bunch of money for the sole reason of buying Mike’s game. Someone in China please buy this game and get it back to where it belongs.

#126 4 months ago

Wow is all I can say‍♀️

#127 4 months ago

I have no dog in the fight but this is painful to watch. Never would have thought the value of this title would plummet like this. Such a shame. Glwts

#128 4 months ago

That’s a great price for a new pin. It’s unique and rare. It may not be the best pin of 2018, but looks fun and probably do well on route

#129 4 months ago
Quoted from Homepin:

I had an Iron Maiden for a weekend and the build quality was "Cheap" to be nice about it."

Lol, wut?

#130 4 months ago

Wasn't there someone from IL that said they would buy it at $4100 if shipping is included? Well......now it is! Step up!

#131 4 months ago

Making pinballs is hard. Love the seller’s honesty and wish him the best. Bump.

Homepin saying that Maiden’s build quality is cheap is one of the strangest things I’ve read on here, and that’s saying something.

#132 4 months ago

I have played quite a few games on this pin at Pinfest (OZ) & thought it was quite a good game. Good to see another manufacturer on the market. If one in OZ came up at this price I would be all over it.
Good luck with the sale

If it was on the west coast here, I'd totally get it at this great price just to finally play it! $500-600 shipping from FL is too much to take.

Yes. See below.

At $3,500, Homepin should just buy the machine back to save some face.

#136 4 months ago

I think the line would be long to grab it if the OP chose to sell it for $3000!

#137 4 months ago

Does the end-user have the ability to write code for the boards in this game? Seems like this machine would be worth the price if the code could be tweaked and rules fixed to make it play better.

#138 4 months ago

I would like to state for the record that since the OP has the game and has obviously played it more than 99% of the folks on this forum, he is better qualified than any of us to rate this pin. There are currently 14 ratings by approved pinsiders on this machine. If one more qualified rater "such as the OP" were to rate this pin it would be eligible to show up in the Pinside Top 100 (and beyond) ratings.

I would also like to say that I'm a firm believer that the more people talk about this machine in this thread, the more likely it is to sell.

GLWTS! It sounds like a steal at that price.

"probably."

Pretty sure that wouldn't hold up in court.

Ben Heck should buy it, make it awesome, and bring it to shows with design and CODE to show what it could have been.

They are ambitious you can not deny that.

#143 4 months ago

Played it at York show and thought it played pretty well. Sorry I'm not that concerned about deep rules and modes. So don't get all the hate on it.
Thought it was fun to play but theme doesn't do a thing for me. I think it was a really good start for a new pinball manufacturer can't wait to see what they do next.

tjc02002 said, "probably."

We were referring to SilverBallz. Minus the poor grammar (and maybe he did that on purpose) made it sound like he would buy it if the OP offered free shipping.

#145 4 months ago

I think the game looks great but the game play was kind of “meh” but that to me was because of the center ramp which is now being replaced which should improve play.

I think the game has some great things and many people who have not played it are being unduly harsh. The theme to me is cool, the art is good, lighting is cool. Maybe a code update would change it, but doubt that would happen. Way worse games out there for more money better than almost any Gottlieb in my opinion but that is just me. All Gottlieb to me play clunky or slow.

#146 4 months ago

This is kinda sad. I have never played this machine. Loved the show as a kid.

Is it really that bad?

#147 4 months ago

I don’t think so...it’s not that bad, personal choice I guess.

however the bandwagon of people determined to hate anything mike ever does is huge and thats whats amplifying the noise

Actually I disagree. If the game was awesome I would say so despite who makes it. I played this game at ReplayFX quite a few times. It was one of the most unsatisfying, sloppy and just depressing pinball experiences I have ever had. How can you get the flipper buttons wrong? The code was pre alpha level with all the bugs. But even if the code was better, it’s just not fun to shoot. No fun factor.

But it has the shiniest playfield prop bar ever. So there.
