Ever since the Expo, I can't stop thinking about these two pins. I just love both games! Given the choice, I'm curious to know which one you guys would buy, and why.

The SM blacks go for way too much, in my opinion. I just can't justify the premium over a regular SM. I suppose if you are looking at it in terms of resale value, it make more sense, but I have never understood why people are willing to pay so much more for a game that plays the same and is arguably uglier than the normal version.

It is amazing how much that particular machine has skyrocketed in price. In fact, it's one of the only Sterns I can think of that actually went up in value over the years. Does anyone know how much more the SMB's went for than the regular SM's when they were new?

There is a guy about an hour from me that is selling an AFM that he recently rebuilt from the ground up. I mean he really went all out ... new cabinet, new clearcoated playfield, new DMD, new coils, you name it. He pretty much swapped out every single part for a new one if it was available. I went over to his house, and it was just absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, he is asking $8,500 for it. Given what it is, I don't necessarily think his price is out of line, but it's probably a bit too rich for my blood.

"Will Mr. Pinball Australia really sell us new ones? Time will tell...."

Did you give him a deposit on one?
