I know this thread is 6 years old, but I figured it may help the next guy, it did me. A few days ago I traded my nice, virtually no modded T2 for a beautiful top notch Frankenstein. We were within 50 miles, so I said being as Pinside rates T2 ahead of Frank, he could come to me. I played T2 a lot "back in the day" when I hung out at a local bar. It was great. I thought it'd be so cool to have one. Never knowing 20+ years ago having your own pinball machine was a thing. About 18 months ago, pins started following me home, the 2nd being T2. It was awesome, it was T2 without having to hit the bar, which I stopped going to 15 years ago. I played the crap out of it for a couple of weeks. Then I stopped. I put it in a local brewery with a JP and it never got any plays, but boy did people feed the JP to see the TRex eat the ball. How could this be? T2 is so much better than JP(still have it, don't much play it). Brought it back home and there it sat, getting few plays. A local guy and Pinsider, who's brother I was buddies with in high school, started hounding me for T2. Told him I'd trade for his Shadow. I thought he was going to bite. No go. A few weeks would pass then he'd message again. I'd make another ridiculous offer. Finally he put pictures of his Frankenstein up on Facebook. The first thing I thought was it was very similar to JP, which I don't think much of. Same designer too, John Borg. Oh what the hell, I hardly play T2 anymore, it's just so boring. It's a great route game, but having it at home in a small(10) machine collection, not so much. Made the trade and I think I easily got the better end of the deal, but he probably thinks the same thing.
