Quoted from Msch:

My avengers is dead..I’m starting to suspect they won’t send me a replacement

You're in luck! Avengers is SAM, not Spike.

Quoted from flynnibus:

Again.. it's all the same.

...to you.

Not sure why you're written a thousand words trying to convince someone that his desire to play a specific themed pin is the same as someone wanting to keep their old TV. Here's a better analogy: what if your new TV doesn't play your favorite show?

Maybe you should re-read it

Not a chance.

Quoted from Bublehead:

Anyone want to start a go fund me to reverse engineer them?

The market will fill that void if/when there are dozens of Kiss, Ghostbusters, etc. literally unplayable due to dead, irreplaceable, and unrepairable node boards. There was no crowdfunding to replace Bally MPUs. When enough of them were dead in the field that an opportunity existed, Alltek seized it.

When there's money to be made replacing node boards, a smart guy will figure it out and do it. Until then, not enough motivation, and we can only speculate about Spike games in landfills.

Quoted from 27dnast:

This is my point - we don't really know the failure rate.

Failure rate isn't the primary issue anyway. Lack of documentation, difficulty of repair, and cost of replacement are the sticking points.

Lots of flipper transistors die on Whitestar and SAM games, but people don't grab torches & pitchforks because it's a $3 part and 10 minute fix. Now try telling them it's a $200 board replacement for the same issue.
