    Every so often we see NIB machines that pop up out of no where on the market -- some give me that WOW factor that I can't believe there is still one in a box somewhere. What do you have in Storage and when do you think you'll be opening it OR putting it on the market? Personally, I would have a SUPER hard time ever keeping a pin in a box ... but that's just me. Love to hear your stories!

    I always wonder about stuff like that myself

    #3 4 years ago

    I would like to know what is out there as well but the majority are not going to share. They will get hounded to sell their games. I am sure there are still plenty of nib out there even from the Tz,taf, and ij era.

    I wonder what a NIB TAF standard would go for now?

    Great topic. Hope to hear some cool stories.

    There was a NIB Alvin G. Mystery Castle in central Illinois still in storage a few years ago....not sure if it is still there......

    #8 4 years ago

    great topic wheres NIB hoarders at and what do they have? With all the remakes, speculation, and what a modded out HUO can be purchased i can see these NIBs being a dying breed.

    Interesting thread. I do happen to have a NIB Corvette that I picked up a few years back that's still sitting in my gameroom. I planned on having a opening get together, with some pin buds, for the past couple of years but a ton of business stuff got in the way. This winter for sure. Anyway here are a few pics.corvette 007.JPGcorvette 012.JPGcorvette 015.JPG

    Mystery Castle would be incredible NIB (just finding one in general seems impossible). I know there is a NIB system 11 classic out there some where. I feel like that would blow a lot of minds...

    Got to admire you for opening it

    #14 4 years ago

    unopened BBB.... crazy (it was unopened anyway)

    #15 4 years ago

    Had an Avatar LE NIB sitting in the corner for almost two years .
    Thought i could speculate for the price going up .
    Sold it in the end with a loss of money .
    Lesson learned no more speculation on pins .

    #16 4 years ago

    I have a Popeye that is still in the box. The only reason that I opened it was to remove the batteries from the board. =)

    #17 4 years ago

    I've heard there is a METLE in SWMO still in the box...

    #18 4 years ago

    Never understood holding a NIB pin for any extended period of time.

    Quoted from jfh:

    I've never understood it for ANY period of time, much less extended, if I'm buying it its getting opened right after it rolls off the delivery truck.

    Ah this makes sense now!
    Julian why didn't you open it years ago!? I thought you had opened it and we're enjoying the game?

    #21 4 years ago

    I'm 84 btw image.jpg

    #22 4 years ago

    I once had a nib still in the box for about 5 minutes, then I opened it like a kid on Xmas.

    #23 4 years ago

    I have an IM VE. I'm tightening up the belt and decided I need cash more than I need a 6th pin in my lineup. I was offered $4400 for it because "you can get them all day long for less than $4600". Even though I have yet to find a dealer that will sell them for less than $4600.

    #24 4 years ago

    I have a NIB Cirqus Voltaire, Metallica LE, and Mustang Premium.

    Good thing you opened it before you got much older.

    Quoted from o-din:

    I hope I am still enjoying the hobby at 84.

    #29 4 years ago

    Recently sold my NIB Scared Stiff. Sold my NIB BBB a couple of years back.

    My BK is *almost* NIB - less than 50 plays on it, was put back in the original box. Still in there.

    #30 4 years ago

    But Why?!
    Opening a NIB is a great experience, opening a20yr NIB just as good but I would be a little concerned, battery damage tome what if something else was broken/faulty!
    Couldn't exactly call up WILLIAMS and get a replacement now could you!

    #31 4 years ago

    Someone just bought a NIB SWEP1 for like 4k on Ebay. Not a bad price IMO

    Time for a new acronym - ANIB. Or maybe PBIB (put back in box).

    #34 4 years ago

    I know 2 regional guys that each have probably 20 and 50 games NIB.

    Some are very old Alvin G, some B/W, some newer SternLE junk.

    It boggles my mind but they tend to think of them as part of their portfolio I guess.

    Pretty sure he was referring to the serial number.

    #36 4 years ago

    I've got NIB X-Men and Avengers LEs in the basement. Big Marvel fan.

    #37 4 years ago

    Super jealous of that NIB Corvette.

    That is my normal, but one was delivered during a cold snap and I just let it sit in the box in my living room for a few days to equalize the temperature. First world agony waiting for Tron.

    #41 4 years ago

    I guess the people who can manage not to open their NIB for years must have lots of pins or other hobbies, because personally I couldn't stand it. It'd be like having a present under the tree and holding off on opening it until after Xmas.

    On a related note, who's hiding a NIB Bram Stoker's Dracula? I want it!!!!!

    #42 4 years ago
    Quoted from roc-noc:

    to each their own. I have no problem with what they do and it is how they prefer to collect.

    If it makes them happy that is all that really matters. Life is too short to worry about how others opt to do it.

    I just wish i could get an invite to come play and hang out with both of them more often

    I (heart) NIBs.

    I have heard rumors from VERY reliable sources that there is a collector in CA that has at least one NIB of EVERY late model BLY/WMS game ever made...

    I find that both totally awesome and incredibly sad. All those beautiful games hidden away in a box unable to even be seen let alone played.

    Wow on the CV. That's awesome! I know Betson sells some every once in a while although its been a few years since I've seen any listed for sale. Last time I think it was Indiana Jones, No Good Gofers and STTNG.

    thats awesome! did you buy the CV back in the 90's?

    #50 4 years ago

    I couldn't keep them in the box. For me, the beauty is watching them operate.

    It would be like buying a sports car and not driving the ass off of it. The art can make it pretty, but the mechanics make it a work of art.
