Quoted from Yelobird:

Looking at the picture gallery of this thread (top) all the ones including mine have 4 screws.

Yeah, I kinda knew that already.. R2 is working at the moment.. just pisses me off that Stern can’t sort their QC out..

Machine and toppers made for a cheap as possible, with employees that don’t give a fuck!

Sorry, seemed like you posed this as a question just trying to help.

Sorry Dave

I would like to know the technical data of the Motor (Voltage and RPM) if possible.
Is there someone who can check that for me/us ?

#1155 8 days ago

What a piece of shit, ya’ll got ripped off with this thing

#1156 8 days ago

The QC on the assembly of these things was terrible. And it is super expensive. Not sure how much of that is licensing or Stern cash grabbing but it still sucks.

On the plus side, it is pretty cool once it is up and working. I've spent more money on worse things.

The whole post sums up how I feel, but this was funny because it’s so true!

#1159 4 days ago

I probably won’t spend much more time on this, just paint and weather it, add some tinted windows. Looks kind of goofy, but will file it under “better than nothing”.

This topper is the most pitiful example of expensive Chinese crap I have ever seen. Why are you guys wasting your money?

Frankly The US actually stands for worse quality than Chinese, internationally speaking (=outside of US).

The bigger question is why do you continue to waste time posting in a thread for a product you have no interest in?

He's just participating in the new great American past time, "being super judgie". I just spent the last 3 hours listening to my in laws who have perfected the art....

Does anyone not agree that this toy is a complete piece of overpriced junk? If anyone really is convinced that this is a value priced quality product, please step up.

Love ours. Completely disagree.

I love mine too. It's a keeper.
Also, I don't bother responding to those that berate others for their purchase. It fulfills no need except for their own.

#1169 17 hours ago

I love mine too. Admittedly I was initially turned off by the price but to quote someone else, I've spent much more for less (including my $1500 of Alien air I purchased from Heighway).

I don't judge people for what they spend their money on, mainly because I don't care. I'm certainly not going to spout flame and crap all over their enjoyment of the purchase. If I wouldn't be rude enough to do it in person, why would I do it on the internet.

Love mine, too. Yes, I had to fix it when I got it. Cost me an hour and some aggravation. And it shouldn't have, especially for the price. But I haven't yet gotten a pinball machine that didn't have something f**ked up out of the box, so what's the difference?

No regrets, and it works like a charm now. Can't imagine going back.

#1171 17 hours ago

Love mine as well.

Had to laugh...the term pinball and value are a bit of a oxymoron if you ask me.

#1172 15 hours ago

It is interesting that everyone responded emotionally. I think D-Gottlieb is making an objective observation. Both points of view can be correct and valid.

#1173 14 hours ago

I don't mean to slam anyone for their purchase of this thing, sorry if I did. I wanted one of these when I bought the pin, but this is just not doing it. In fact, to me it is a joke that it costs more than 100 bucks. I threw a Boba Fett helmet on my machine and called it a day.

Well it looks like shit but at least it's cheaper

Has a full node board, motor control board, motor, multiple leds, metal base and metal ring/sleeve for the rotation. $750 is too much, but I think at the $499 price it would've been reasonable. Not great but compared to what some completely plastic non-interactive pinball toppers sell for, reasonable.

$100.00 is just trolling.

Seems like everyone simply responded with their opinion. I for one don’t need anyone’s justification on what I purchase or appreciate.

That is the exact point I was making. Every single response started with Love or I love, I hope we can agree those are subjective opinions. D-Gottlieb was clearly being objective in his opinion. Objectively its hard to argue this topper is worth the money, subjectively of course it is. You for one have nothing to get defensive about I was simply pointing out you are both right. If your going to disagree at least use the same type of argument.

You really are reading Way to much into this. I nor was anyone defensive to you or his post. Would it help you feel better if we say “we really like it a lot” instead of love it? Asking if we agree it’s “an over priced piece of junk” seems like trolling with stupid bait to me.

Read paul_8788 response he answer objectively to an objective point. It makes sense. They are talking about the cost of goods, manufacturing what you physically get for the money. That is objective. Responding with an emotional subjective opinion to an objective one doesn't make any sense you not even speaking the same language.

There is no value or really anything worth the money in this hobby...it’s all overpriced but it’s fun.

There is nothing subjective or objective about it and that isn’t an emotional opinion. It’s probably why every single non pinhead I’ve had over thinks I’m f’ing nuts.

Don't forget "Why are you guys wasting your money?"

How can a non-functional decoration be objectively "worth the money"? No amount of money is a good value for a non-functional item. It's not like the topper is a car, computer, drill, or some other functional item where you can objectively compare this topper's function against another and determine it's value for the money.

It's value is purely subjective.

I have already pointed out an example of objectivity, I have no idea why you guys insist on trying to mix the two and turn this into a boolean equation. I have nothing further to add.

I am happy with my topper, i am glad I bought it.

Art is non-functional. I have paid handsome sums for pieces of art. This is not art.

And some people would say you got ripped off for some paper and paint or clay or with whatever raw material the art was constructed.

Another example of subjective value to which there is no right answer. Value is in the eye of the beholder.

There are a few museums that would disagree with you.

Yup. It’s half a basketball spray painted silver, with a bunch of poorly applied stickers, a $5 Chinese motor, and zero QC. All for 10x the price of some very amazing R2D2 toys with incredible detail and engineering. Owners may love it, and that’s totally great, but no one can deny Stern cheaped out to the N’th degree on this one.

Something tells me that you and the other guy will spend your life not letting the owners forget.
