Both seem to have very loyal fan bases. And opinions on both seem extreme with the potc camp claiming the goat, and toys, rules, targets, etc with equal comments toward the other side of the spectrum with comments of meh, it's boring. With prices through the roof they clearly command a premium.
With GnR, same statement of being the goat, with opposing comments on too many multi balls and just flailing around with it's success being carried by the integration, licensing and light show. For some the fact it's a music pin is a negative and possible aversion to GnR music adds another nail in the coffin. The energy and uniqueness of this pin while playing it is ground breaking and Uber fun for all levels.
CLEARLY they both are on the same level of Team GOAT.
Ive enjoyed reading all the spirited and respectful posts here. Is it safe to admit that...
I've never even played potc!
Im going to have to go on location and spend some time on potc just to try and appreciate what the fuss is about .... while I wait for my GnR LE to ship this fall.
