I have to opportunity to get from local collectors one of these 3 great games, looking for advice on choosing one.

I only have space on my apartment for 2 pins, and I have to trade to get a new one, usually when I get bored with the pin.
WOZ is here and is staying, I have owned MM, NGG, Sega 007 and Shrek.

I like Stern POTC a lot. Have owned a couple. Great family pin for $4k-$5k.

As a collector and huge fan of the theme I'd rather have a Williams Indy. Will likely cost a fair bit more than POTC.

SW Prem I don't like at all. Don't like the layout. Don't like the scoring. I'd honestly rather own DE or Sega SW.

I own a SW premium and a Stern potc. Only 2 pins currently with WOZ being the next pin when I can afford it. I really like the Indy theme but my wife and I could never get into the pin as much as we tried and I just don’t think they’re worth the going rate.

I’d go with Star Wars. Its fast and the theme is great.

Indy all the way. It's the only game with that controllable upper playfield, and has LOTS to do. Resale is consistent, and only 7,000 originally made. POTC is fun but limited, and will get boring fast. SW... I mean have you played it? Biggest miss of the last few years.

Woz is great, go for it when you get the chance. It is has the same deep “jorney” code as SW, it is gourgeus and a bit more forgiven them SW .... still difficult but not as fast as.

Talking about resale, demand dictates that and the prices in Brazil are very different because of that.

There are more indy available them stern POTC here and the new pins are quite expensive due to import fees and taxes.

A HUO star wars premium will cost R$ 40 k, a pirates R$ 30 k and a indy less them R$ 20 k.
Exchange rate is 4 so a Indy here will cost USD 5 k, half the price in US

As those are new itens, they will take the hit on import taxes, 100% . Yep a pinsound would cost 2 times the price

Based on pricing you stated, Indy is the clear winner. I like all 3 , but SW prem is not worth 2 times a Williams Indy.

Stern POTC is a very nice, family friendly, game. I know the women in my house liked it when it was in my home. Again, not worth 50 percent more then a Williams Indy.

This is based on the Indy being in decent players condition at least.

sulli10 POTC stern and Indy prices would be close, a good condition indy.

SW premium would be almost 2 times that , so yes, price difference is relavant. Maitanance cost of indy would probably be high on the long run ... dont know, never had one

I vote for Indiana Jones Williams.

#18 3 months ago

Thanks all for the comments and info, it has being decided and IJ should be here soon and will be side by side with woz.

Still trying to squeeze the budget and get a SW premium
