Let me set the scene. Pinfest 2019. Friday 8.55 PM. Only a few games grabbed my interest for purchase. WoF is $4K. Breakshot is too beat up. Dolphin EM is not for sale.
I settled on this thing. (See photos.)
I ended up cutting a really good deal and will reveal the number so that the best advice can be given - $700.
It’s a fully working Alien Star...with decals...and custom art...and a custom theme.
Now, these decals in and of them self are actually pretty high quality. The guy who sold it to me said that the person who did it - did it about 10 years ago.
However, this custom art covers all the bonus inserts and what the top inserts do, a *major* problem in my eyes.
What should I do? I put bright LEDs in the backbox and in the inserts and they barely come through.
Try and cut the decals to reveal the inserts and put stickers on them to show the value?
Retheme over the retheme?
Try and convert back to Alien Star?
Any advice or suggestions are appreciated.
