I'll be interested in what you find out.
On a separate note, yup, looks like MMR LE will be appearing on the top 100 list Monday. Since the MMR links are on the bottom of the last page here are the links to review MMR game ratings and for people here to rate it if they wish.
The MMR history on Pinside predates me here. While I was familiar with the MMR story starting around delivery I didn't know as much about the previous history. I have done a bit of reading and it is very interesting. MMR is the most successful pre-order pin ever that I am aware of. When MMR was officially offered for pre-sale the 1000 LE's available sold out in around 1.5 hrs. . With that success PPS decided to offer a standard version to fulfill the remaining demand.
The subsequent delays and issues reduced the enthusiasm for the release, which is pretty much a standard occurrence for every pinball pre-order experience on Pinside. A lot of time has transpired over the slow MMR release on Pinside; MMRs began hitting owners hands two years ago it appears. Since then, cue many new pinball machine releases and other manufacturer/pinside drama which has further eroded the the interest in the MMR offering.
Pity, because the owners have been just getting started in the last year with their enthusiasm for MMR in the club thread. I guess since MMR is a reissue as opposed to a new pin with new theme that the club thread has been slow. From what I can tell TWD started getting into owner hands around the same time as MMR (albeit MMR at a much slower drip) and the TWD club thread is over 3X as large. And TWD had A LOT of negative drama from the haters early on. I expect the MMR club thread to continue to gain activity and look forward it.
And with MMR production stopping shortly, I envision some resurgence in MMR interest on Pinside. That is why I ended up here. And imo, MMR has been flying under the radar on Pinside for a while.
While MMR seems to have fulfilled much of the interest in owning a new version of the #1 rated pinball machine, the availability was only during a snapshot in time. Now that supply will be gone, it is reasonable to expect future interest in owning an MMR will increase over time. Seems to me that MMR is a win for the pinball community and for owners. I just checked MMR LE's in the marketplace and even at this point only three were for sale; the cheapest used MMR LE had tentatively sold with an advertised price $8550 and the others were higher and into the $9k+ range. At MSRP or higher.
Enough banter from me on this post. Just wanted to share some discussion.
