So last weekend, I went and picked up a GORGEOUS X-Men LE Magneto (#38). Check my post history to see my comments on my experience buying and everything - it was incredible! So that's why I feel sort of odd putting this up for sale. Like, almost dirty. But I think this makes sense for me I guess, ha.
I think most of us have this moment in the hobby at least once, no? I bought the game, played it a bunch for this first week...But realized this is NOT the game for me. The game is a blast to play. It flows so incredibly well, beats you up, challenges, and keeps you working HARD to succeed.
It's not Tron. And Tron is what I want...Bad. So I'd like to try and sell this guy to fund a Tron purchase. I know I'll get a lot of comments regarding how good or bad of an idea that is, but I guess that's my decision to make! I've had a LOT more hands on with Tron...I don't know why I didn't just buy Tron first. But I went with a weird gut instinct saying, "No, X-Men is SO MUCH DEEPER."
Heh, go figure that I don't care about that nearly as much as I thought. Deep ruleset does not equal longevity in my home. Also, the music in Tron. Oh, and the fact that Tron means a lot to me and my wife. Like, a LOT.
So anyways, that's where I stand. The machine is IMMACULATE (the gentleman whom I picked the machine up from can attest to that). The only thing about it that shows any sort of wear is that Wolverine's paint is starting to wear on his belt. I'd be happy to repaint him for you since that's sort of what I do as a hobby (painting figures and scale modelling). Also, I did cut the holes for the Wolverine remount. However, I wasn't happy with the leaf switch after the remount, so I moved him back (Iceman ramp cleared fine since my Wolverine sits low). Someone with more experience tending to and shopping games would probably be able to tweak the switch in a jiffy.
Since the game has been in my hands, there have been 300 balls played (at time of photos). I am going to play a few more tonight just because I have beer and I'm bored. Also, I'm super anal. I've cleaned the glass every time I take the glass off for whatever reason, and I have used Novus 1 twice since having it to clean up any little dust that has shown up. I hate when things don't look perfect. I told myself to clean it every 5-10 days. So...
