I showed the trailer of this to my friends at work today.
One of them thought it was a great machine and asked if this was goign to be my next pin... I laughed and I was like... NOOOOOOOOOO! No way... I got my eyes are Elvira 3.
One still thought it was cheap, but still looked fun... And I agree with him. But, the funny thing is none of them were even close to the price. And I know one of them knows what I paid for my machines.
So when I told them both the price and then the price of a used pro model. Which of course explaining the now 4 models did confuse them.
They both were like... Just get a used pro.
Anyway... I think this is over priced. By about 2 thousand dollars. It might not be feasible for stern to have a pin at that cost, and it might not be reasonable for us to expect a pin at that cost..
My question to you all is... What would the magic price be for you to "Consider" owning this pin. I think 2000-2500 is my price range. For a used...
I do like the simplistic nature of it. It has a few things that look cool. And the art scheme is very close to the pro... In fact Obi wan and Darth crossing sabers is an improvement... But, the lights arent as good and off course its more barren and I think the playfield art is only good to begin with.
And with it being or having less mechs to go wrong... That does appeal to me.
And I think less risky on the used resale market...
Also, I do like the ball lock. Simple, but could be really cool. And I think one could mod the screen and make it bigger... But, only having one speaker... Or sure looks that way... Seems to a be a bit of a let down...
Not saying even at that price I would buy it... But, I would consider buying a used one... Might be a nice pin to let my father have at his house... As I wouldn't have to worry so much on it breaking down.
So please let me know your thoughts.
Also, I think the weight of it should be not too horrible. It should be lighter than most pins out there... Not by much. But, lighter is always a plus.
