Quoted from DaveB:
No. It is the same. Just like a reproduction of action comics #1 is the same as the original so it should be worth the same as well.
Have u seen the machines ,not the same ,missing the Williams logo ,one very small brains in the backbox ,and many other thing too ,but as I said its not the same as the Williams ,they can't make them the same because the money is just not there and they wouldn't be only asking 8k for them
Quoted from Atomicboy:
Spoken like a true original owner.
umm, ok, show me...
As for this dumb discussion:
The FOR SURE reason they will tank is simple. What is a good avg MM worth? Who cares really, but in comparison, what is a totally restored machine worth, new decals, cc’d PF, all parts rebuilt, cleaned, boards gone through? Sounds puuuurrdy right?! Much more right...? Super!
Let’s take that to the next level, an over the top restore, not just new decals, but scrapping the whole cab, brand new cab, new decals, all parts not only thoroughly cleaned, but replaced with brand new, all new switches, new wire looms, new PF, new plastics, absolutely everything new... god can you imagine the price for that before all of this?
That latter scenario is what you’re now getting with PPS, and probably a better system to boot. But please owners, continue to tell me how it is “original” is going to be worth another $5-10K on top of the $8 PPS is charging to anyone after this for your whatever state MM. Only a complete idiot would buy yours for more when they could get the above scenario, likely with some type of warranty to boot, if and when these are released.
Don’t harp on the one thing you can being the unknown board set and software. The four most common issues with boards, bad GI connector, 5v dropping via connectors, battery leakage, and failing HV section have ***ALL*** been easily fixed already in the boards. This is such a piss poor argument in trying to substantiate your original goldmine value, sorry (no, no I’m not sorry – PISS POOR!)
Can you feel the choking up?... oh, here it comes, sniffle sniffle....I know, I know... It’s ok, here’s a tissue and some hot choco
Lets get over it ,it will always be a nock off and all ways will be and there will be all ways people that only want the real Williams one
Quoted from Rum-Z:
Galagamaster has no desire to buy an MM. He hates MM and rated it a 1 on IPDB.
In fact, 53% of his ratings on IPDB are either a 1 or a 2. Therefore, he probably doesn't like pinball much at all.
If he hates pinball then why is he always on here ,I think it's because too bug all of us
