    Quoted from HighProtein:

    They'll certainly be making more than 1...

    Oh, it’s stern I’m sure they will. But doesn’t that defeat the purpose of an NFT?

    #52 55 days ago

    So, I got to play it a little, and chatted with the team as well as the stern employee that was there.

    Price is TBA, but it’s going to be way more than it should be, above $9,000 according to one of the guys behind it.
    They kept saying it was 75%-80% done.
    Machine shot as expected.
    Art and design were hit or miss depending upon where you look, even if you’re into the ape aesthetic.
    Optional translite will have an ape owners ape for an additional fee, but the generic translite will be included with all machines.
    Audio was better than I expected but still needs work.

    The team behind the theme kept taking way too much credit for the machine, way over stating what they did. They made it seem as if they designed the entire machine and layout.
    It will support insider connected according to the stern employee there.

    I doubt it will sell out as fast as they expect, very few at the fest acknowledge it was there or went to check it out.

    #53 55 days ago
    Quoted from NashtyFunk:

    I want it. If it’s reasonably priced I’m gonna own it.
    I already know I like the layout and I’m a fan of the art package. Make it a small run of games and I’m down.

    I think the art package is dope.

    Bro, let's be honest here...

    Is there literally anything under the sun that you WOULDN'T own for at least a week? And don't say Ultraman, because you already did.

    Oh, you mean like NFT purchasers?

    #58 54 days ago

    Something completely physical like a pinball machine is the antithesis to NFT's.

    Only thing they have in common is that buyers propably have too much money to spare, wich is why someone thought this is a genius move.

    I hate everything about it, this is a complete sellout. Pinball suddenly feels dead to me and I'm not joking.

    Cryto and NFT's are not "adding nothing" to the world. They are the evolution of digital assets and finance. It's a generational thing. My dad was very suspicious of debit cards, paying online, etc. He wouldn't participate. Only paper money and bank checks. And his dad probably didn't like paper money no longer being directly backed by gold. And the world of crypto will consume much less energy than the world of physical banking structures.

    You are completely wrong top to bottom.

    It is not a way of paying your "dollar", it's a purely speculative worth that can crash down to zero in an instant.
    It is an addition and it consumes more energy then a lot of smaller countries and is allready a big environtental problem.

    #63 54 days ago

    Ok, how much? And I don’t mean for this game, I mean how much for Stern to do a run of 10 custom games based on a Pro (not The Pin)?

    Crypto will catch on when you start getting airline miles or cash back on your dark web purchases.

    Hyperbole much? It's a limited run to a niche audience. Basically what Stern does roughly once a year with their home pin layout.

    NTF pin?

    What's next, a pinball based on Adjustable Rate Mortgages?

    This guy was deep root’s #1 ride or die supporter, and that fiasco did nothing to shake his confidence or love of pinball, and he never stopped making excuses for those guys nor did he ever renounce his support for mueller and co.

    However a pinball machine actually being produced and sold has rocked his faith in the silver ball.

    Odd to say the least!

    Like I’ve said before, so many people in pinball prefer fantasy to reality. Some just want what they can never have and despise what they can.

    Foreclosure multiball..
    Hit the bank bash toy to inflate the interest rate...
    Get to wizard mode when you foreclose on all properties...

    How could that not be fun?

    You joke but Monopoly is eerily close to this, down to having a bank bash toy!

    I think you should listen to your dad more tbh.

    #73 54 days ago

    Aah, I'd love me some Monopoly. Very underrated pin, not very suitable for tourneys though.

    Quoted from Palmer:

    Hyperbole much? It's a limited run to a niche audience. Basically what Stern does roughly once a year with their home pin layout.

    Of course you are correct, this is what Stern does.

    But again, when I say NFT's are the antitheis to pinball. What I mean by that:

    One thing is purely digital, basically only a link. It has a picture connected to it (that can be copied) and it's worth is purely speculative and there is basically nothing you can do with it other then speculate.

    The other thing is a mainly physical machine. You get a fully functional thing in itself wich, while also having a speculative worth, will at least allways have the worth of the sum of it's parts, you can still play it and it can't be copied.

    These two "markets" shouldn't collide... it's not right! XD

    I am not one to claim I am an expert in NFTs but I know enough to understand you are incorrect.

    Haha you don’t know what you’re talking about

    #78 54 days ago

    I've already turned all my machines into NFTs.

    Now that I've done that, I have full ownership rights to my machines, and no one else can own them unless they buy them directly from me.

    #79 54 days ago

    So does anyone have a guess as to how much it would cost someone to have Stern custom theme one of their home models like this?

    #80 54 days ago
    Quoted from gweempose:

    ONE game?

    Since we are just guessing here....$40,000?

    #81 54 days ago
    Quoted from Aurich:

    This is a perfect pin for the current state of pinball. A bunch of suckers overpaying for things that aren't remotely worth the money they're spending, but they keep doing it because other suckers keep paying them more than what they invested originally and everyone thinks it will just keep going up forever and nobody will be left holding the bag.
    It's performance art on a meta level.

    but when does the supreme version come out? that should make it worth at least 10x more

    No need to own them, just have them. I‘ll just right click and „save as“.

    Maybe they could do a Foreclosure pin and bring back the gobble hole?

    I do not but I would like to hear what happens if you ask (after they stop laughing that is).

    Quoted from Elvishasleft:

    The person or people that commissioned this pin have enough disposable income to drop $400k+ on a digital image of an ape. I'm sure Stern will gladly accept that kind of money and give you one of whatever you want.

    #86 54 days ago

    I gave up my Toy Story CE. Apparently that’s where I draw the line, but you have a point.

    Quoted from Frax:

    #87 54 days ago

    Reasonable is in the eye of the beholder. That said you may be right. If it’s over $9k I’m out unless it’s limited to like 100.

    Quoted from snakesnsparklers:Narrator: It wasn't.

    #88 54 days ago

    <-- Ya'll frickin nailed it.

    #89 54 days ago

    I think it was 100k in the data east days to re-theme lethal weapon. So maybe around that.

    #90 54 days ago

    Where do I send my video application to be one of the lucky buyers?

    Yah if they can mass produce and sell them.... it's a factory not a custom shop.

    I think you guys underestimate how much it costs them to ramp up a new pin also unless its a total reskin.

    #92 54 days ago

    NFT pin > TS4 pin

    This is a total reskin, and crypto guys have money coming out of their ears, for now.

    well they did.

    They are kinda late to market with this. Kinda like the companies that started making hand sanitizer about the time everyone found out the virus was air bourne only. whoopppps.

    That party may be over for now

    Quoted from Elvishasleft:

    I think the guys who commissioned it are the market. Like when your rec league team has shirts made. I don't think it's a retail product. It's a souvenir for wealthy crypto enthusiasts.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    It has some art assets and digital assets as well. My best guess is $200,000. Did Zombie Yeti do the art package?

    Crypto guys are quickly going broke last couple of weeks. Looks like we may of hit the buy buy buy spot for Coin.. Or not.

    oh no...BTC down to 20k... darn it...I remember not too long ago 20k was the all time high. Great time to buy.

    #99 53 days ago

    Just saw this pop up on Youtube (Eminem/Snoop posted an hour ago)...

    Thumbnail showed those NFT monkeys, and I was surprised it also has a pinball lyric and video for it soon after the minute mark.

    #100 52 days ago
    Quoted from gweempose:

    So does anyone have a guess as to how much it would cost someone to have Stern custom theme one of their home models like this?

    I'll take a shot.

    If the parties involved are really hinting at $9k for these retail and the buy-in is 100 games, that's $900k retail. Figure 40% off retail is their cost, and you're around $540k for 100 machines ($5,400 each) paid to Stern. Stern can bang that out in a little more than 1 day with their current throughput. If you count set up and teardown on the line for the run, you're looking at small part of one week to fulfill this.

    In that scenario, they're basically paying Stern a bit more than retail on a Jurassic Park home edition and pre-paying for 100 of them. The $9k hinted-at price is $1k more than the Heavy Metal pin this is a reskin of that was announced in 2020, which sounds about right given pandemic inflation.
