Quoted from AMSNL:
Funny thing is that 95% off the people responding here never ever seen a thunderbirds in real life or owned one.Only 120-150 are made . Did it play like Shit yes it did , code was simple and annoying but I still own it . And if you look at some really good things Homepin have put in there machine. Like the rolling assy to get the playfield out,playfield lock etc and the build qual is really good! Some things other manufacturers could also put in there games.
Spinal tap may not be my theme but I really like to see where it’s priced and what they did with the theme . If the want to achieve a better status they need to step up there advertisement as the game is almost on the market and nobody even heard about it. Also hope they don’t make the same stupid mistake to make only a handfull of exclusive distributeurs
The reason there are a handful of distros is because most distros do not want to deal with them.
Commiserations on owning a Thunderturd. It is the only game in the history of pinball that I will ever put shit on. You will probably have to pay someone to take it away too. Yes I have played it, a fair bit when it was going properly.
Quoted from PinMonk:
Thunderbirds is very rare in the US because no one bought it here once the truth was out about it, so I have a morbid desire to buy one, play it, and sell it just so I have had firsthand experience with one. There was one that was "touring" the US for about $3500, then $3300, then $3000, then $2700 as buyer after buyer flipped it. Still probably a little high, but I'd take one at $3000 delivered (which would be $2500 + shipping) max so I wouldn't lose too much on a flip.
What about all the time you will waste to realise that you should never have bought the game in the first place? (Sarcasm!)
