OK.. I recently sold a Popeye pinball machine so this may seem selfish but I can see tons of reasons why someone would remake it but I will just figuratively KILL myself if someone does remake it.

Retire it's number (whatever this means) before it becomes like another iconic Bally/Williams DMD game, ItWhich Shall Not Be Named. This is a totally feasible thing now (even if they haven't gotten that "other game" all out the door yet.)

Actually we are waiting to see if it is a PopeyeVE coming direct from Stern or if Rick got the license for PPS. The PopeyeR would have 4 times the resolution on the graphics.

So depending on your position . . .

Can you put a poll on this thread?

1) PopeyeVE for the non LED purists
2) PopeyeR for the MOD crew

I need some of the spinach you're smokin'

PPR by PPS does not sound too farfetched.

Popeye is easily worth 15 grand NIB

#8 4 years ago

Just bought a Popeye. Now you are telling me the value is going to plummet?

#9 4 years ago

Nope. 20 by X-mas

Make sure you get the ColorDMD. I know the guy who colored it and he did a great job. Of all the Popeye MODs this is the best. I dare you to name a better one. (positive comments only please)

Popeye is a fun game.. are there many mods that people are adding to the playfield?

Quoted from Scout:

Ok... 1st person who can tell me what my dogs name is can trade there Popeyes for my dirty underwear.

Something tells me "scout" never played the game enough and just listens to the Lemmings. Owns a game, must know a lot.

Why in the world would they remake Popeye? Oyyy, I did not like it at all.

I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a remake delivered in three years.

It's not worth a thing if it doesn't have voice clips of JACK MERCER's Popeye voice.

#18 4 years ago

Popeye VE will likely ship before The Hobbit at this pace

Im already making a terrible alterante sexy Olive oil tranlite. This is what I got so far.

The NIB one at Marco is not showing anymore. Must of sold so there is defiantly a market.

#21 4 years ago

Double the value of your Popeye by putting in a ColorDMD.

#22 4 years ago

You people know that Popeye is a top 10 machine,give this pin the credit its own(sarcasm).Please sink this ship.

I read it sold and he wasn't too defiant. But he said there was major cleaning to be done.

How much is a Popeye Remake prototype worth?

Marco had a NIB Popeye recently!

It's actually a pretty decent game, I'd own another if things fell into place.

#27 4 years ago

I'm looking forward to playing it at the PBL open house in a few weeks to judge for myself how bad it is or if it is in fact bad so I know the next time one comes up for sale.

I played the recently un boxed popeye, it lives in Jacksonville now....a lot of sticky switches and slingshots, some dried out rubber, it needs a little shop job! But the cabinet colors are awesome, it looks like it was supposed to be headed to japan, there is a sticker on the front of the cabinet with some Japanese writing on it. Marco had previously opened to remove the batteries. I also did not know that popeye shipped with black legs, they look a little out of place on it.

JJP will have to do it, it's a wide body with tons of features!
Delivery by Xmas 2022!

Original game is great sure the next one will be too!

#31 4 years ago

I'm sure it would sell better than Wrestlemania...

#32 4 years ago

There was a pretty daft thread titled "Please don't remake Twilight Zone" recently, and I was just poking fun. And smoking crack.

True story: Popeye both out earned and outsold Cactus Canyon and even with CC's small run distributors were still stuck with them.
