Back in March I payed my mortgage off and rewarded myself with a MMRRE. Annndddd...there she waits, in my heated garage teasing me. Apparently wife says I need to finish my DM and JD restorations before taking another one out of the package. She’s right. But I’ve looked for an MM since 2004 and finally scooped up my dream version! WHY, oh WHY PINGODS HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME WITH LIMITED SPACE?!?!?
Curious about nib stories on these ( or any pin!) that never made it to freedom.

I’ll do you a solid and volunteer to unbox it and keep it in use at my place for you until you’re ready. I can go pick it up today.

I bought a nice EATPM a couple months ago. Still wrapped up sitting in the corner. Same problem. Need to take a game down to set it up but only game I want to take down is one I'm working on. Been too busy modding and selling Arcade1up games to work on my pin so baby just sits in the corner. Still have 4 more Arcade1up games to mod and picking another one up in 2 hours. But gotta mod and sell while the selling is good.

If it ends up sitting longer, and you stick with the Arcade1ups, PM me, I l’ve been looking for a nice EATPM for a while!

You should open it and play it, if for nothing else you are losing your warranty period.

I don't quite understand?? Why would you buy a pin you don't have room for?? Wife on your back tells me everything!!

I have space for two more squeezed in but restorations are taking up all that room. Funny how I have as much fun restoring as playing.

Your wife said you cannot unbox it until you have cleaned YOUR room that has 2 other unfinished pins???

I agree though. So it was a discussion between us. Just got my pf back from NEO, still waiting on trim from Chris Royalty.

Having my MMR is cool though. I ran into this issue years ago with a nib SM that sat for over a year before my other restorations were done. Friggen projects take up WAAAY too much space.

I bought a NIB MMrLE last year from a collector thru my distributor that had been sitting for 5 years unopened in his collection. My machine had sound issues right out of the box(sound died after 20 plays). CGC honored the expired warranty since it was still NIB and replaced every major board until the problem was resolved. Started off as a lemon but now I’m drinking lemonade!

Side note.....the original owner used the funds to buy a NIB MMrRE lol

I bought my 1st NIB game back in August. Still waiting for it to be built! Does that count?

Yes it counts. You get a half point for that.

That looks like the scariest thing possible for NIB.

Can't you fold one of your other titles and swap it out with the MM?

Great idea. He could make Demo Man or something sit in thr box instead.

I will gladly buy MM from you to help you out of this obviously dangerous predicament.
