Quoted from LesManley:
Close. I was told it was 5" shorter than a standard machine.
The cab is, but the PF is full length. Not sure how that works but that’s what I hear.
Quoted from Rob_G:
It doesn't appear as tall either. Look how high the legs mount on the cabinet. Sized for children perhaps?
It probably looks short because the backbox is smaller with that tiny screen panel. I believe the translite is standard size.
Quoted from swinks:
Well it looks more fun than a Homepin Thunderturd, but not a fan and had heard other older releases had thinner playfield than regular and 1 or 2 had playfields made from mdf (not sure if this correct)
Here is the history of The Pin / Home Versions - all in MRSP
July / 2019 / Star Wars "The Pin" / $4499 (Home Version Pin)
February/ 2018 / "Supreme" / Boutique (Re-themed Spiderman "The Pin" design game) / $10.5k with 200 made (apparently)
September / 2016 / Spiderman "The Pin" / $3800 (Home Version Pin)
Jan / 2013 / Avengers "The Pin" / $4000 (Home Version Pin)
October / 2012 / Transformers "The Pin" / $4000 (Home Version Pin)
April / 2010 / IronMan / Classic (Home) / $3799 (Home Version of the Regular but looked more like a regular pin)
Supreme is full arcade spec with coin door and everything. It just used the SMHE pf design.
They also made a home edition of Batman Dark Knight as well, I think they called it a Standard edition.
I just looked it up, and on IPDB anyways it’s referred to as the Standard... meaning my memory from 10 years back of fairly worthless details is failing me. DAMMIT.
Quoted from branlon8:
I think all the node boards should be eliminated.
That would make it awfully tough for the game to work!
The node board design IS better... flexible, easier to produce, less expensive, more efficient and less heat... they just need to be perfected. Is Stern the outfit to do it? Who knows but they’re what we got.
FWIW tho I had more board issues on my SAM Star Trek than my SPIKE Ghostbusters.
