Quoted from Krupps4:
Without getting into a bunch of detail, I’m all for mixing things up. If you have a lot of nostalgia for Willy Wonka I think you will enjoy the pin. Plus, it will be something new which is always exciting.
Thanks so much and that’s where I’m leaning towards. Have no clue what to ask for the MMR but figured if I got what I was asking then I feel it was meant to be (I’m a weirdo into signs like that)
Quoted from mbrave77:
I just got Wonka and really like it(my kid LOVES it). I traded my Deadpool premium for it. I LOVE deadpool, but Ive had it for two years and have played the living hell out of it. I only have room for 4 pins and wanted something new. So I setup the trade. I say go for it if you have gotten everything you can out of MM.
Thanks, and that’s how I feel. I upgraded it because I wasn’t planning on getting rid of it but I just feel that while it is an amazing game and I get the hype for it, just feel Wonka would last longer as well as I think the wifey might be a little more into it as she seems more into Metallica than MMR and think her only real favorite thing about MMR is the trolls.
Quoted from Elvishasleft:
Im not sure you could find two more different machines...
personally I thought Wonka was tons of fun and MM is the most overrated pin of all time
Yeah, I’ve heard people compare Metallica’s shots similar to MMR, like the castle and Sparky, etc. and I can see that. Thanks for the feedback.
Quoted from zaki:
I thought, Why does it have to be Wonka, why not trade medieval madness for something else like Jurassic Park premium or maybe the next Jersey Jack?
Thanks but no other pin really interests me at this time. Not really into Jurassic Park and I think the next JJP is GnR and while I do like that band a lot, grew up listening to Appetite, Metallica is my music machine pic.
Thanks and exactly interns of nostalgia.
Quoted from indybru:
My neighbor is a huge Pat Lawlor fan. He has a mint restored FH, pristine TZ and a real nice TAF.
When he comes over all he wants to play in order is Wonka 80-85% of the time, then MBr and Met pro.
I play Wonka a lot but it's 3 months old so maybe it's the honeymoon phase. I have the standard edition and am good with that.
Thanks and that’s good to hear.
Quoted from nicoy3k:
MMr by a galaxy
I’d sell either of your other two games before thinking about selling MMr
Wonka has some very mixed feedback so I would not buy it before trying it.
My suggestion is to give yourself some time to think about this. Wonkas will be available for a long time, If you’re still dreaming about wonka in a month then maybe consider it.
Thanks for the input but Metallica is here to stay as that was the first concert I ever went to when I was 17 back in 1994 so again nostalgia there too. Funhouse is my grail and first machine I got and it’s a Sample machine as well as I’m currently restoring it (my first). Got the cabinet done and just waiting on my PF to get the Kruzman treatment so that would be the last machine I ever sell and only if I HAD to.
I’m sure it would take me a while to sell MMR based on condition and then upgrades but I also want a NIB Wonka and would probably order directly from JJP.
Quoted from Joeymonkey:
I recently got a membership at Silverball Museum and have been going a few times a week to play and my first few times playing Wonka left me a little confused and cold. Lately however, I can’t stop playing. As I learn more and more about the game I enjoy it a lot more. Getting my first Kid Multiball had me psyched. I find myself saying “just one more game” a lot. MM has always been a favorite of mine, but I hardly play that machine at all anymore. It’s still great, but the JJP games really draw me in, especially Dialed In and Wonka. In fact, I’m about to buy my second pin and I can’t decide between DI or WW.
Thanks and good to hear, let me know what you end up getting. I would consider DI but just not into that theme and since I can only have about 3 now, gotta be selective.
Quoted from underlord:
Played Wonka. Couldn’t stand the hacked scenes. I’m sorry, was all over the map. And the scenes kept playing over and over. I’m not a bad player, grew up with this movie and was excited for the pin, which is pretty. But damned if my final take was ‘no thanks.’
Never had the drive to return to it. Zero replay ability.
Thanks and I get that, I watched and also read some about how and why they did it that way and I’m ok with that as if they played those scenes I think it would be distracting vs. the short call outs that indicate what shot or mode to go for.
Thanks again everyone for all the amazing input, feedback and experiences, this is EXACTLY what I was looking for so keep them coming.
I know MMR is a very great and unique game and theme and Willy Wonka is kinda kid themed with candy, etc. but I also had my first child this year, better late than never I guess LOL, and thinking when she gets older, she might like the game or at least all the candy theme, etc. but who knows, that’s not the only reason. Also the wife is not really into pinball much and thinking she might like it a little better than MMR.
If anyone has a rough ballpark on what my MMR might be worth, just let me know and if you’re not comfortable posting it here, just Message me as I know the classics have everything mine does except the Topper, Shaker and the protectors and that the Royal has everything but the protectors. So no clue what to ask.
Thanks again and stay safe everyone.
