    My secret sources (My cousin Harvey) inform me there is a Magic Girl sitting behind a rope at an upscale furniture store called Amini’s in St. Louis.

    My first thought is, “why the hell would this be a thing that happened?”

    My second is that this is appropriate because Magic Girl is basically a piece of furniture, even if it’s pretty much useless as a coffee table due to the incredibly stupid cabinet design.

    Anybody have any insight into this bizarre but apparently true occurance?

    ....and what is the off the wall price it's listed for?

    100K by Christmas

    I'm waiting for the Magic Girl Supreme edition!

    Looks like they are an authorized Stern dealer, so maybe the owner or someone in the company has some special connection to pinball?

    i got a friend that has one in st. louis, helped unbox it. didn't work out of the box. very shitty/looking game. i'll check today if i get time. gotta go by there. they are about double on their pricing at aminis, so i could only imagine what they want for it.

    I was at Amini’s last week and saw it. Amini’s isn’t really a furniture store. It’s more of an expensive toy store. Pinballs. Arcade games. Pool tables. Expensive BBQ equipment.

    Aminis sells multi-year service plans as well. I once saw a RCT with a three year warranty for like 8k once, lol. But at least that game functions. I wonder if they would sell a similar plan for a game that is as crappy/ non-functional as MG.

    I was there last week. It is definitely real. They are asking $21,000. The won’t let you touch it unless you are a serious buyer. They did turn it on for me for a couple of pictures.

    Such a waste of Yeti’s artwork.

    I haven’t really followed the MG threads but I do know from comments that the game isn’t playable. If that was the case, how did any sell? Was it sold as a fully functioning pin and then when customers got their game they realized it wasn’t complete from a mechanical perspective?

    #11 2 years ago

    It was a last ditch effort for some customers to get SOMETHING. That is all, nobody really knew what they were getting until they opened them up.

    Quoted from Spagano314:

    $20K was the average price when these games first starting coming out. Now that reality has set in as to its box of lights status, no telling what they might sell for. Still, very limited production at 20 machines so appealing to the rare pinball one-percenters.

    Having it there might generate some interest but that's a tough sell if they're going to rely on foot traffic.

    Hey, maybe it's better if some rich prick buys it who was never going to play it anyway, than have them buy a real game and remove it from circulation.

    Saw this today, just walking around for lunch and did a double take.

    There’s a guy there who lurks here

    Maybe he posts too but keeps his Aminis identity a secret

    I went in to look @ BGE’s & walked around the pins for a bit. An employee walked up to me & we chatted for a minute or two. He basically said things only one of “us” would say.

    Aminis is a store for athletes, ultra high net worth folks & a few overextended suburbanites that just want a game or two for the basement.
