I will own any pin if the price is right. For some that would have to be FREE.

#52 4 years ago

Pinball Circus, BBB or Capcom Kingpin. Not because I don't want them, but because if I ever found one, Sadly I wouldn't be able to afford any of them.

I will never buy a . . . or except a pinball machine sent to me by NAVL.
I had a pinball machine shipped to me that way from a seller off eBay.
NAVL wacked the back of the machine and bent the 2 back legs, but that not all.
They also broke a bunch of solder connectors and sent a bunch of stuff out of line.
I saw video of the machine 2 days before it was shipped. I know it didn't have those issues.
NAVL insisted the seller leave the legs on.
The machine never played properly again.

LOTR pin. It's the only theme I don't really care for.

Most Lawlor pins. Don't care for Stop/go.

NIB pins. The prices are just out of my league when I think of having that much tied into a single title.

South Park. Love Sega pins in general. Not that one.

#55 4 years ago

Any of the Simpsons pins, Family Guy or Southpark. I have never cared for cartoons geared towards adults.

Quoted from newtoit:

There's nothing to be ashamed about. If I could afford the big dollar pins I would get them.

I do have them or have had them. But sometimes you have to put things in perspective. 8k is way to much to have invested in 1 game. Can do so much better for fun with that money. No 1 game is just as fun as 4 to 10 others that you could have with exact same money.

Pretty much any and all of the recent releases except Supreme, if I can get a decent deal on one, and TNA which I already own.

The rest do nothing for me at all. Can't relate.

With rumors of what's coming, I don't expect that to change anytime soon.

.....Free game. Because it's already free!

#62 3 days ago

Any machine with a straight up Devil or Demon on it.
Or Clown,creepy or otherwise
Dolly was pretty, that hideous Bally does her no justice
Same with the pervert Mick on Bally Rolling Stone
Jack in the Box, no,no,no phallic images that are supposed to be cute
No Elton John.
No Stern with Spike. I'm officially scared off this System
No Gottlieb SS.
No Playmatic or other off-brands with hard to find parts.
No Disco or Funky 70's themes (people wise. Psychedelic artwork is fine)
No boring Gottlieb EM without spinners,score holes, you know,those same canned play fields Nico Volta tals about
No Williams with weird or backward flippers
Jubilee, Darling, and a dozen others of its ilk. You know, the ones always for sale.
In fact, I'm sticking with safe traditional American themes, Cowboys, the West, Space, wholesome pretty girls.
That leaves about 6 Ems I would desire. A few SS.

Well, that kind of takes you out of the super prestigious NIB LE club now doesn't it?

Quoted from Monarca1091:

Class of 1812 and ripplys believe it or not , those two are just to creepy ........ohh and gameplay are horrible.

I agree with this class of 1812 is creepy AF.

Dialed In.

I know it’s supposed to be awesome but the theme and art etc absolutely kill it for me. To me it looks like an old dudes concept of what a kid might think is cool

Also- I have to agree...

Do you think you're young enough to be judging what kids really think is cool or not? Because I have no fucking clue.

Up until they are about six or seven, they think anything their parents like is cool. Then they start to wisen up.

Any Spooky produced pin.

ANY New Machine with surface mount parts on boards. When you have to spend hundreds of dollars to make a dollar repair I just don't see the logic of owning new machines. On top of that wait until companies no longer sell replacement boards and then enjoy your $10,000 paperweight.

I actually feel sorry for people buying these machines thinking all will be OK down the road! A buddy of mine that does pinball repairs full time feels the same way about the "new stuff". Even some of the 1990's stuff can be tough to get certain parts for so who wants to spend nearly $10,000 for a machine that might not be able to be repaired 5 years down the road?

Used Underwear or Bathing Suits.

I've heard of some water parks that actually rent out bathing suits?

As far as pinball, I am open to just about anything. Even when I bring home something I do not like I can usually get my money back out of it.

On trash day it is not uncommon for the Amish in the area to hit the town and haul home all the old mattresses put on the curb. My stomach gets queasy just thinking about it. . .

The more time you spend in the hobby, the more your interests will shift around. A lot of newcomers are all in on theme as their top priority, but it ends up becoming secondary or tertiary to other things as time goes by. Stuff you might have no interest today in this hobby could be your top fascination tomorrow.

That said, I'll never like South Park. Awful game in all aspects.

#79 3 days ago

Very true jar155 about interests shifting over the years. I reviewed my posts from 4+ yrs ago, and am taking Medusa off of the "will never buy list". It's a great game, with good art work.

Not if I wait until the game is produced and buy it second hand. Or not buy it after playing it, IE Magic Girl.

Who buys used mattresses? Just wait until someone in the neighborhood throws one to the curb (and if you're lucky, a box spring as well).
