ok yeah i was wondering what the second switch at the angle from the firsts purpose was. thanks for the details

Quoted from TigerLaw:

I wonder what the Stern distributors thought of this release. Seems like they were totally cut out of being able to sell these. Such a shame really since Stern depends on them for so much but didn’t let them in on this limited run game they could have, apparently, made some good money on

Its a limited contract build for Supreme, I dont see why the distributers would be involved? (imo) having them involved would be no different than the current reselllers and not really a benefit to the hobby.

I think stern and supreme handled it the best way.

Only thing surprising about Supreme is that nobody made or sells mods. No Mod Couple, Modfather, Hooked on Pinball or Colordmd. In Supreme fashion, mods will be marked up 10x to account for the low quantity of games sold.

#655 61 days ago

I'd like to grab one, take it out of the box, and then sell the box . Should offset the original purchase by quite a bit!

If I were a shady type, I'd repackage an old EM in the box and sell to someone as if it were a Supreme. Of course I'd tell them never open it or it loses all value.

But I'm not shady, ,,, , or rich.

Seems like the buzz is mostly off this title, did any person on Pinside get one? Just curious.

#657 60 days ago

Found out they sold all 100 of these. Madness.

Hope all the pin owners got in on this Supreme grip. It would make a good pinball plunger mod

I think the machine is a ton of fun. I didn’t buy it to flip it. I didn’t buy it to show how much money I have to burn etc. I bought it because I thought it was cool, and I wanted it. My kid is a sneaker head, and so our two hobbies met at a bizarre crossroad.

The game is fun to shoot. It’s a slight tweak on the Spider-Man Home playfield. I thought that game was fun to shoot, and this one is better.

Unlike Spider-Man home, Supreme is in a full size Pro Cab, with a coin door and service rails. Has a regular DMD and a completely different sound package. I wasn’t familiar enough with the Spider-Man home rules to tell you if these rules are the same.

Layout is solid. Really nice shooting game. Objectives are clear, and straightforward like a good early SS design.

Sounds are wicked. The game has a very satisfying feel to it.

I’m not sure what else to say. Value discussions are ludicrous. This game is a total anomaly. I got mine for retail, which was still way too much, but not the astronomical value people are asking to flip it. I have no intent of selling it. It’s a really fun game, and a strange pinball story.

I think anybody who enjoys simply playing pinball would really enjoy the game. If you remove the outrage about the flipping, and the ”reskin” of a supposed low end pin etc etc. Anybody stepping up to this game without bizarre expectations and baggage would certainly enjoy it. Layout is fun, code is simple and good, sounds are really good... Simply put, it’s just FUN. That’s what pinball is supposed to be.

Some people will never get it... that’s totally fine. I’m enjoying the pin. I was home for about 4 hrs killing time a few nights ago, and it’s the only pin I played! With 14 other really good options in the room, it kept me coming back for more. That tells me something.

I am glad you were able to get one. I also hope that you didn't have to go very far into hock to do it.

I just got back from London and the entire time I was there I saw one person wearing a Supreme shirt... are we sure this is still a thing?

#667 29 days ago

No video's of this game in action?
As that will be the closest I'll ever get to see one in action since I live in Belgium...

Quoted from Astropin:

When I went on an Alaska cruise a few months ago, I spotted a Supreme shirt on a passenger and another passenger had a Supreme fanny pack.

Trend going strong. We all know that nothing is cooler than a fanny pack.

To be fair, the fanny pack (worn on the front, proudly showing off the Supreme logo) was on an elderly Asian lady.

They call it a utility pack. It’s one of the less desirable items. Shoulder bag and backpack very popular.

I just love all the parodies that this brand inspires.

Shoot, I had gone all this way and hadn’t seen my favorite Supreme memes. Then the very last post is the freaking stickers I was gonna post.
Sad!

Other current, counter-culture, or maybe anti-anti-culture influencers were wearing those “Sheep” logos a while back. Really famous, controversial people like Idubbbz and FilthyFrank.

All in all, I think it’s absolutely hilarious Supreme contracted a pinball from Stern. That’s funny. I think the brand with its Kanye-level narcissism coupled with its hypebeast culture really sucks. Aesthetically the design and it’s simplicity give it that weird timeless, chic look that is reminiscent of Apple or Coca-Cola. The absence of background music and it’s retro sounds actually play well into the theme.

All in all the gimmick of a Supreme pinball machine just gets more younger people into pinball. Sure it attracts a lot of the rich and arrogant, but it’s also just the very notion that this informs the younger generations that pinball still exists.

Hell, I’m 22 (today actually!) and my friend who KNOWS I collect pinball and arcade machines was ASTOUNDED that they are still producing them. I showed him some newer games and his words were “I didn’t even know they made these anymore!! I thought pinball was like a 90’s thing!” which hurt my heart a little bit.

Pinball is a timeless, enjoyable hobby, but even the most incredible treasures don’t mean anything if later generations never learn of them. There are kids who have never heard of The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, the Beatles etc. etc.
They aren’t born knowing. They have to be taught and experience these things.

If some kid scrolling through Instagram sees this and learns “wow some companies still make pinball machines with stuff like Supreme” then it’s done it’s job and made people money too.

As for adding douches to the hobby, it’s not like those people have suddenly been created. They’ve been around for a long time and aren’t going anywhere
