Possibility of flipping for either of these. Already have DP premium (DP staying).

Advice? Like a bit of depth (Own TSPP), but flow at the same time (also love our AFM).

I prefer GOTG because of the theme. The Elvira code is still in progress but it's turning out to be really good as well.

#3 5 months ago

Elvira all day long for me. Beautiful machine that shoots like butter and has some really good code that's only getting better. If you like the theme, there's nothing else quite like it.

The horrible fake voices ruin GOTG. Boballee Bobo. Elvira is true to its theme & has Lyman on code.

Thanks. Don’t own any horror themes and the Elvira gets the wife’s approval. Good to have real assets. DP was fine because it was based on the comics. Would hate to have hired talent to mimic the actors from the movie.

Most everyone uses the "cleland" sound mod for GotG. It replaces the audio for all the modes with the actual movie audio. So the only voice acting that's game specific is the call-outs for hadron enforcer, extra ball, rampage double scoring, etc. It's a fun shooter if you like flow and can be had for a good price. The rules are fairly basic but not bad. Has really good music and sound effects.

Elvira really surprised me. It’s a ton of fun. I say that being not all that familiar with Elvira, just knowing who she is. I think it’s a no brainer!

#8 5 months ago

Elvira is the winner for me. Wasn't even contemplating getting one and played it and had to have it. GOTG is good but not in the same league for me. Elvira is also my wifes favorite playing pin. Lyman code is already amazing.

My wife loves AFM, so Lyman is a big plus for us.

Elvira. Not even a contest.

#11 5 months ago

Go with GOTG; as a former TSPP owner, this game would go great with it...It's fast fun and super approachable...Guests love it too, I put the Cleland mod on it and it rocks for real

#12 5 months ago

This is a decent "this or that" because of the price difference, I don't know what a EHOH Premium is going for but you can find fantastic condition GOTG Pro for $5K and miss very little in terms of game play (spinners) from the Prem.

Quoted from wxforecaster:

Yep. The code is significantly deeper (And the game isn’t even done yet), it’s still a fast playing machine, and the audio does not grate on the nerves (I.e. the voice acting). It’s actually Elvira and Tim Kitzrow!

#14 5 months ago

Maybe if the sound is turned off or you mod the music on gotg it would be a good game but as it sits with the current factory soundtrack it is one of the worse sounding game only second to Motordome.

It's so easy to drop cleland's sound package into it I don't know why anyone wouldn't do it though I have heard a few people say they like to laugh at the voice acting in the factory code, it's so bad it's good.

#16 5 months ago

I went after a GOTG Pro but it didn't last long at home. I thought it was actually pretty bland. This is with the sound mod too. I just don't think a lot was put into it. With a blend of MET and Iron Man, I figured it'd be a home run but it just didn't click w/me.

EHOH I can't comment on.

#17 5 months ago

EHOH is a freggin gem and in its' own league compared to GOTG Pro... where you know, sometimes you shoot red shots, or green shots, or blue shots while clips play, with no tie in whatsoever.

#18 5 months ago

Y'all who think that Guardians even comes close to Elvira, in any way, shape or form, are clowning yourselves.

I've got them both sitting in my game room right now, as I traded a friend for my old GOTG so he could put some time on my JP3.

I consider EHOH a solid A+ game with GOTG coming in at a B to B+

If money isn't an issue, Elvira is your ticket.

#19 5 months ago

Wait a year to buy Elvira. Play GOTG now. Win-win.

Yep. Price is a bit of a consideration. $9500 AUD compared to $13500. That’s why I was torn.

Both themes are good with Elvira a bit ahead.

But I don’t own any stern fan layouts so both could work.

I’m getting awesome feedback that is helping me decide.

Thanks IM is another I am interested in. Funny thing is the revault will cost the same as a new gotg pro. Was surprised by this. SAM same price as a SPIKE 2. I guess IM does have a couple of good mechs...

Yep. I have a game like that. Know what you mean. Much prefer mode based games like TSPP where the shots, call outs and objectives are all tied together. Thanks for letting me know.

Would you even put Ehoh above JP stern? (Sorry off topic just curious for opinion from someone who owns both. JP, wife will never agree to)

#25 5 months ago

I would put EHOH above JP after playing both quite a bit. The call outs and integration are vastly superior. Both excellent games with fun toys and layouts.

I'd pick Elvira over JP for beginners or casuals. It's more approachable in terms of rules and shot layout. JP can be really punishing.

We prefer GOTG and 3lvira over JP2. Personal preference.

Thanks. My wife’s least favourite Are the heavy stop and go mode based games. So flow games with interesting things to do is important. So good to hear your thoughts.

Might be getting that in a couple of years. Doing extension. Have approval for 10 pins.

I would make space for 20 pins at least. We thought space for 10 would be enough too.

My wife loves me. Pinball is her hobby and idea. I just go along with it.

Hold on to that one! Come to think of it the original idea of One pin came from my wife. The idea of “let’s get another one” came from me. Thanks for all your help. who-dey told me you were a helpful guy!

#35 5 months ago

If you like AFM then you'll probably like EHOH more. GOTG lasted 3 months for me but I had ZERO interest in that license. I'll have a EHOH someday, but I'm a wait and see on a second run HUO after Stern hopefully fixes their QC problems.

#36 5 months ago

I like GOTG more
