Quoted from kablam0r:
Me waiting is not a big deal. I just don't know about the quality and replay of stern machines. I hated them back when midway and sega were still on the scene. I do have to say, the kiss premium version I played last year was awesome. Stern is the only company in the game, right?
I use to only love ballyl/Williams pins also but bought a Metallica and love it so much now I have acdc luci, iron man, the walking dead and gb premium on order. I am with you on the data east and sega pins as ive tried many of them and they just are not tnat good compared to the bally/Williams of that era. Stern pins are quite fun with lots to do , good toys , nice lignt shows, deep rules and are pretty reliable pins . Since you have 9k you may wanna look into a wizard of oz or hobbit if you like the themes as they are beautiful pins with tons to do and hold up well in home environment
