For sale: Transformers The Pin (Stern, 2012)

Added: January 12th, 2016 Ended: January 30th, 2016
Condition: Used - shows wear but 100% working and clean

Item description

This add is for the Stern Transformers the pin edition. Machine plays great 3 ball multi ball feature. I went to the expo in Chicago for 2015 George Gomez and Gary Stern both signed the apron for this machine. This would make a great machine for someone who wants a first time Stern. I have had a lot of fun with this machine but now it's time to let someone else have some fun.

ehhhh... I don't believe you.

#3 3 years ago

Seriously, what's the catch? Transformers the Pin is worth at least $1550

#4 3 years ago

Would you consider a trade for Canibal Corpse the Pin?

#6 3 years ago

This is gunna be good....."Honey...throw Me a bag of popcorn in the microwave"................Joey

#7 3 years ago

This is the home version non coin op Transformers in case anyone didn't realize.

#8 3 years ago

Sounds like a good price to me. Never seen one of these on the resale market, and NIB they're around $3k, right?

Good luck with the sale!

#9 3 years ago

Can you provide pictures?

Thanks,

So the myth is true, Stern really did make this game and someone really did buy one.......Pictures or it never happened!

Pinside shows 3 people having one in their collection.

#13 3 years ago

That's actually not a bad deal. Someone will get a fun game.

#14 3 years ago

Priced fair. Try local Craigslist also. GLWTS!

#15 3 years ago

Someone, somewhere out there must collect home models? The 8-track tape collector of pinball? Are they spotting this ad, thinking, this will look great between Vacation America and Alive! before capping the evening off with some vigorous Zizzling?

I've seen an Iron Man in ''the pin'' form, with no magnets or whiplash kickback. The game sucks and is a bore to play, I wish the CT Sanctum would get rid of it, it belongs to one of the co-ops there.

I'm betting the Transformers The pin is a lot more fun though because of its unique layout.

#18 3 years ago

It sounds dumb, but if it was closer I would buy it, if only to be one of the few that can say they have actually played it. Probably won't be too hard to get your money back at $1500. I've seen videos and it seems like it could be fun for a bit, about on par with an average System 11 game rules-wise. Nothing super deep, but it has some of the modern bells 'n whistles you get with recent Sterns. It would also be a hell of a lot easier to get up a set of stairs, something to consider for those that don't live on the ground floor.

#19 3 years ago

Man I kinda want this. I'm curious how it plays.

#20 3 years ago

I played one at a local Sun and Spa type store here in South Dakota. It wasn't too bad. Better than I expected.

#21 3 years ago

But is it home use only?

#22 3 years ago

Remember when this first came out at $3000 and a bunch of people said they'd buy one if it was $1500? Well, here you go.

American Sale on 59 still has these. TF and AV for that 3K price tag

So this is a deal all things considered.

This is your second "Stern The Pin" game? Sold the first one in September after a few weeks of ownership, got regrets the day after and bought another one back in October to sell it now?

Looks like after the first for sale ad didn't sell he put up a wanted ad for the Avengers pin, not another Transformers one.

Ooops, my mistake.

$1500 for "Transformers, the Pin" seems reasonable. Worth a try!?

#28 3 years ago

Neat seeing one for sale used but cannot justify the price when a few hundred more I could get a full fledged pin. Granted this is better than the ($40) zizzle I have for my son still it is not a full pin.

#29 3 years ago

I played one of these at CES years ago. It is fun. It feels like a full size pin. Plays fast.

This game will sell at that price. I wish they sold new at that price, I'd buy one for sure.

#30 3 years ago

You should contact the company that puts pinball machines in children's hospitals. This would be perfect for that. Not real expensive and people there would be happy to play anything and wont look down on it for what it is.

With that said. Seems like a reasonable price. I've considered picking one up if it was local and the right price. My wife wants a pinball machine in her classroom at her school for those rain day recesses and rewards for her class. I have a zizzle there now but would love to upgrade them to something like this.

#31 3 years ago

Do any gameplay videos for this title exist?

YouTube searches tend to spit back the "regular" Transformers...and I'm too lazy to keep searching.

I thought these were recalled?

#34 3 years ago

Todd Tuckey has the best video on this game. He goes into the guts, hardware, rules, and gameplay.

GREAT idea and thought-provoking post. I would love to do something like this.

First spike system?

#37 3 years ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

First spike system?

More like a beta test for SPIKE.

#38 3 years ago

Whoah that's actually pretty cool looking! Had no idea this was a thing, looks like a solid deal. GLWS!

#39 3 years ago

I always wanted to play one of these

#40 3 years ago

After watching the TnT video for this, I actually have a bit of respect for 'The Pin'. For $1500, it's certainly not a bad way to have a 'like-new' machine in the house. GLWtS!

#41 3 years ago

wow... that pin looks pretty cool.

#42 3 years ago

Great first pin for some of my non pinhead friends

#43 3 years ago

the pin might look good next to your cabarets

Quoted from labnip:

#44 3 years ago

good gateway game for a kids room or something.

#45 3 years ago

1500. Seems reasonable. Much of the sounds/music/callouts are the same as my TFLE.

GLWS
