I’ve got my TNA due for production next month.

I’ve played TNA one time really liked it but since then have picked up DI and AFM, them’s the breaks when you are waiting 6 months for a pin. I only played 10-12 games of TNA so it’s just a taste. And did my buying DI and AFM kind of lessen my desire for TNA somewhat?

During the time I’ve been waiting for TNA I also sold LotR, was a great pin but the long time commitment was it’s main fault. This is a big point in favor of TNA.

I want TNA but it’s going to be ‘game over’ for a long time until I can buy another game. So this brings the pressure for TNA to be the last pin for long time.

My pro list
-Spooky, Scott it’s nice to support the little guy
- short games and co-op and multi player and time run mode
- love the lights and music
- something *very different* from my other pins

My con list
- I’ve heard from 2-3 people say they got bored with it *real quick*
- maybe it’s a one trick pony? But sometimes if the one trick is very good that’s all you need.
- one person told me he wanted something different also but found that he doesn’t like different. My example is some people love pins from the 80s and some don’t. It’s possible if all pins were from the 80s I might not be into pinball at all. Maybe I’m into pinball because of the ramps and magnets and toys etc..

does this really need its own thread?

sorry, not sorry...

you have been in, then flipped for profit, then back in, then not sure, then in, then maybe, then for sure in, then ???

I dont think you are going to be happy with this or any pin in the long run, but base don where your collection seems to be going I think you are going to really love this one and it will outlast many others.

Wysnow, if this thread bothers you just drain it, I don’t need your permission to make a thread or ask for advice last I checked.

Drain away.

If me selling my spot in the past bothers you, I think that’s a you problem.

Oh man, it sucks when someone flips preorders for profit. But then again, if the market has demand for it, its ok?

#5 8 months ago

Sorry rai - I haven't kept up. What other games are you currently considering buying besides TNA?

I don’t see the problem, if other person wanted my spot which put him ahead 6-10 months, time is money.

We agreed to a price we were both happy what’s the problem?

#7 8 months ago

Idk man if you’re still ambivalent about it at this point (I’m assuming you’ve played it a bunch) then it’s probably not for you. There’s loads of choices out there! If it’s not “the one” then keep moving!

#8 8 months ago
Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

Lots of people like Iron Maiden, Munsters could be interesting (or not). MB remake could be an option or just about anything which comes up. For example there was a BM66 up in PA that was to be had for a great deal. I don’t want BM66 but for a good enough price you can’t go wrong with any pin, now if some other pin comes up that’s really priced good I’d jump on it, but once I get TNA can’t do that because I’ll have to sell something else and I’m not ready to sell anything yet.

#9 8 months ago

Sounds like you’re going to regret TNA if you stay in. Tough decision when there’s so many choices.

Haven’t played it a bunch. Played it 10-15 games. Was great at the time but can’t tell if it’ll get better in home environment, most of my pins get better when I own them.

Sounds to me like you're not really hot to buy any game in particular. Why not just hold your money until you are? TNA's will always be available (there seems to always be someone looking to dump their spot) and The Munsters may be really cool. What's the rush?

#12 8 months ago

The rush is my spot is almost about to be made so I need to decide to keep it or try to sell it. I was planning for it to be ready more like December not September.

I get that, it’s gonna be tough to tell until you -actually- get one, unfortunately then

If the prospect of losing money by potentially selling a used TNA is unacceptable to you, sell your spot and hold your money until you're more confident of what you want to spend it on. Especially since this will be your last game purchase "for a long time".

If not, buy the TNA and focus on enjoying it and the rest of your collection.

#15 8 months ago

There's always the option of selling if it doesn't meet your expectations. TNA seems to do okay in the marketplace, so the hit you'd take seems minimal.

#16 8 months ago

Sell it now if someone wants it. Will be harder to sell off when more are out there.

#17 8 months ago

As you know, you can always sell it.
Looking at your collection though, I think it would be a great addition. A lot of what you have are pins that have long ball times and TNA offers some brutal unpredictable mayhem, which allows a break from the norm.
It works well in my collection.

#18 8 months ago

How is this even a question? Sell your spot and get a Bad Cats Meow

#19 8 months ago

It's super fun, simple yet challenging, and great sound and lightshow plus there really isn't anything quite like it on the market. I say go for it.

#20 8 months ago

Get a TNA, Scott is a good guy and helps support the custom pin crowd. It’s been nice to see him progress to a commercial machine

#21 8 months ago

If you're actually interested for yourself and not just following the pack, I agree, go for it. Myself, I really don't know how much I really like a game until I've owned it for 6 months or so.

#22 8 months ago
Quoted from DeeGor:

True, if I can play and enjoy at least 400 games and lose $500 that’s nothing to me well done.

This is true.

Quoted from Spinape:

This is also true, like to support the pinball culture and new makers.

Quoted from herg:

I agree too.

I’ll probably go for it, I don’t hear a lot of people say it’s not any good.

I think the timing kind of caught me off guard, I was estimating 20-30 a month but seems as if the last 50-100 have gone much quicker.

I got DI in May, AFM in July and now it’s September and just seems like 3 pins in a short time.

#25 8 months ago

Can you just swap your spot with someone further down line? Perhaps things will get clearer given more time.

#26 8 months ago

Put the spot up for sale. If it sells, then it is done. If it doesn't, then pay in full and enjoy. Kind of like flipping a coin.

#27 8 months ago

Don't buy it!

We would hate to see all these threads finally come to an end.

#28 8 months ago

WTF this thread.....

#29 8 months ago

Buy two, that way you can have the best of both worlds.

I knew you'd get it o-din. Now the question is whether rai will follow through and do the right thing.

Thanks for hooking me up! To quote Shaun Tomson " I'm just as stoked now as I ever was"

You're welcome - nice to hear that you're still enjoying TNA! I'm considering getting back in line myself. Like rai, I can't quite decide though - too many choices and not enough funds and space for non-stop addiction fixes.

#37 8 months ago

Sell your spot and never look back.

That game just doesn't have anything going for it other than all the Wisconsin folk around here hyping it up like it's the greatest machine ever made.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to sit back and watch the downvotes pile up...

#38 8 months ago

You want to buy one? I've heard Scott Danesi is Awesome! Maybe you could get him to sign it for you.

I agree, there are not even any ramps on this game. Sell!!!

It technically does have one ramp. I did not find this out till after bought my game. Now I bought a second so I could have 2 ramps.

And only one beacon! Alien has two!

It is not often I agree with you, but this is the smartest thing you have ever said!

Rai, please sell the spot. It is the obvious and right decision for you.

Can they just ship me a game with cases of spotted cow and that pinball beer. I had one of those last night and they are damn good!

Still waiting on the aftermarket to come up with these cheap pieces of plastic for this game.

#45 8 months ago

My guess Rai is that there is about ZERO chance you are buying this pin

Yet it’s a pretty good way to field offers for the spot

Hell the way I see it, he already made a grand on the first one so he is way up even to start.
I honestly assumed this tread was a way to field offers on this one also.

How is the Jpop litigation going? I haven’t kept up, looking at your collection you were on Predator, Alien and TBL did you lose any money on those also? You seem to be a magnet for failed pinball games.

Highest bidder takes it or else I’ll keep it.

I will offer $500. Hell, the thing does not have any ramps and only 4 actual shots!
