I hope it is Hot Wheels. Would be my first NIB. That is if done right and has to have a loop and a ramp. I think that would sell just good enough to make their quota.
Quoted from Russell:
Of course there will be the odd rich collector that will buy anything that has their favorite theme on it. But, I think that is a small number of people. Did you buy that watch yet?
It is a small number of people out side of the hobby buying. But that small number of the consumers is almost as much as the people here on Pinside.
Quoted from Krupps4:
I said something similar earlier in the thread but I just don’t see how Hot Wheels can compete with Stranger Things, TMNT, Rick and Morty, etc. They are all going to come out around the same time. Even if Hot Wheels is a high quality game, it’s really about allocation of dollars and I don’t see dollars allocated to Hot Wheels given the competition.
Based on theme alone out of that list Hot Wheels would be my top pick with RAM in last place.
The real question should be. How many pins do they need to sell to be profitable? If Spooky can make a profit from only 750 games then why does API need to sell more?
Quoted from mrclean:
At TPF I'm expecting:
AP - Hot Wheels reveal / announcement
JJP - Guns N' Roses reveal / announcement
Multimorphic, Inc - reveal / announcement
Spooky / Ben Heck / CGC - reveal / announcement
Stern - Heavy Metal reveal / announcement
Stern - Corner stone game reveal / announcement
I would change that to CGC announcement on their next remake. Pretty sure they would want to get that out before launching the other. Also wouldn’t seam right for spooky to announce another game with so many people waiting on R&M. And you forgot Deeproot.
Quoted from o-din:
They are both coin operated commercial grade equipment as far as I am concerned. Unless of course your collection is comprised of Zizzle machines.
A roller coaster is also an amusement device, but funny how I never considered it to be a toy either.
If it's not out on location earning money. That pinball machine is a expensive toy.
Quoted from benheck:
SpongeBob would SLAY on location. Just outright MURDER. The kids who grew up on that are now in college and are the ones plunking down coin at barcades.
Also the parents of kids that grew up watching it. Hell, I'm 52 and still like watching a few episodes every now and then.
I'd probably own one if they made it. Too many people underestimate the word nostalgia. Same goes for Hot wheels.
