    A lot of people are going to be turned off by the fact that this is non playable, but I personally think this was the right call. I think replicades have more value as collectible to display rather than something you actually play. Will look cool without having to power on.

    I agree, All the arcade games I have, I typically turn them on and listen to them in attract mode. It's like being in the arcade. Can't see them to play anyways, /oldeyes... LOL

    I have them on display on a shelf in my office. For my purposes, will be cool to be able to look inside and see a machine and not just a screen. I am definitely in the minority based on the initial reaction they are getting.

    What's with the odd looking body cab rear end?

    Indeed, the back looks like a proto pic... Hopefully they clean it up a bit...

    looks 3d printed like the Minipins (same name) that I was contracted to design for Pinball Bazaar (UK) a couple of years ago and then he disappeared. Stumblor was part of the team as was a Swiss guy Christoph (who was the original designer of the software side of things). But we only did a AFM / MM / SS then - but the legs look to be the same as what I designed but now a Gottlieb.

    I was about to pull the trigger on the Twin pack
    Until I noticed is non-playable
    Why would I want a $200 pin ornament

    The Hallmark Taz pinball ornament actually has a little ball you can plunge, so it's sorta more playable than this one...

    I was about the do the same. I own a couple of their mini arcades and think they are fun but non playable just kills it. If fokls are thinking about buying the New Wave arcade VIP email list always has a discount for new releases. For Black Hole you can use code MINIPIN for 20% off. If it was like $100 I might buy it as just a decoration but not at $160 with the 20% off.

    The Hallmark 2005 Bugs Bunny Pinball Action ornament uses the same pinball model from the 1996 Santa Pinball Wounder just as a fun fact.

    A lot of people buy them. They’re called toppers.

    Hey! My pinball's hat is important to the gameplay experience!

    That it is unplayable would appeal to those who sell games with less than 100 plays
