    If stern made a TSPP VE would you buy it? In my opinion one of the best games stern has ever made. Lots of bells & whistles. The good old days when 3500 bought you a packed playfield with great code. How well would this title sell in today's world? I feel it would look great with a metal back box and new style speaker panel decal. What are your thoughts?

    Uff no thanks

    #3 2 years ago

    lot better game than the shit they are putting out now

    Stern doesn't really seem to do bells and whistles any more.

    #5 2 years ago

    would buy one in a heart beat -too bad it will never happen-anyone in Canada have one to sell??

    #6 2 years ago

    Yes, top of my list

    #7 2 years ago

    Pending how much ?

    #8 2 years ago

    Theres a lot of them still around.

    #9 2 years ago

    Stern really needs to up their QC. I've seen way too many machines have issues right out of the box.

    #10 2 years ago

    Today, Stern's shitty quality makes it difficult to purchase any new offering from them.

    I still have my original TSPP with less than 100 plays and color DMD, great game. My game is missing the following "features" which I am sure would be included with a TSPP Vault -

    Peeling decals
    Ghosting
    Split cabinet
    Playfield chipping

    #11 2 years ago

    How could they improve on the best game they have built or ever will build?

    It cannot be that great if you have less than 100 plays on it. Play more!

    Not needed. Stern needs to quit dicking around and release a TRON VE already!

    #14 2 years ago

    Tron would be good as well but TSPP would be like getting a premium by todays standards - enough of the AC/DC already - Stern has flogged that horse way to much!!!!

    #15 2 years ago

    TSPP is a phenomenal game and is packed with awesome code and great playfield features. No way it'd align with their current mantra of "less is more".

    #16 2 years ago

    Id buy one for sure.

    I would buy a Simpsons vault edition. I actually think it would make for a great vault title, it is a fun packed game.

    Stern could do a Premium vault model with full Atomic Green powder, premium side rails, pinblades, Color DMD, etc. included....

    A lot of these were made, they are easy to find and prices have been pretty stable. Why would anyone want to pay $6500-7k for a stock vault when you can get a nice huo game for around $5k. In this case I’d think existing supply > future demand.

    TRON on the other hand seems to command a bit of a premium and is harder to find.

    #22 2 years ago

    No way this would ever be made. This would be a premium game, with likely a $6700 street price at least. They will not sell very many TSPP @ $6700 IMO.

    #23 2 years ago

    I’d rather see a Tron VE first.

    #24 2 years ago

    I'd rather them make a new title... perhaps Jaws.

    They make 3 new games a year and they can't release them with a good code so i really dont want to see them try and make 4 new games a year. 3 games and a Vault Edition is fine but the Vault Edition games should be older games and not games that they stopped making a year ir two ago. People are already talking about a TWD Vault and you can still buy a new TWD NIB. Thats dumb

    Too many games and never enough time.

    #27 2 years ago

    Cool game, but I have been there, done that so probably not for me. It does seem to be on the rise tho, and it would be cool to see it with an art update.

    Beat me to it

    #29 2 years ago

    5 flippers, mini playfield, drop targets, legit toys, and real ball lock. How much do you think that would cost today? Anything less than $7500 and I would be shocked. No way that would make sense when there are plenty out there for way less. It's a cool game with a great theme. Just not worth big bucks to me right now.

    #30 2 years ago

    I would not buy again. Doesn’t matter though. You can buy one that’s like new for less than Sterns current NIB games. No reason to remake a game that you can buy for 5k any week of the year. That is, unless you want a Stern warranty...

    #31 2 years ago

    I would not buy a vault edition as I already own a TSPP.

    #32 2 years ago

    Broken record, Stern sucks blah blah blah. Another thread for complainers.

    #33 2 years ago

    I’ve owned TSPP 3 times. It’s a dream theme for me and I still can’t get into it no matter hard I try. I’ve read the whole rule set. It’s deep. I get that. I’ve played it probably 800-1000 times (not 100 lol!). The sounds drive me nuts (mainly the hurry up that is always active) and the game just gets repetitive. I would pass. Bring on Tron! I’m instantly buying that when it’s released.

    I would pay $1000 over going price for an original TSPP before paying another $1500 over that for a POS vault edition. You can do a lot of nice color effects with the original game by changing color of bulbs etc instead of having to look at the cheap ass bright white LED GI circuit they put in the new Stern's games. And of course, I also refuse to pay extra for peeling CC, ghosting inserts and cabinets that fall apart as well as the stupid power switch under the head of the unit also. This is one of the games on which the price will go up if a VE version is announced, not down like the others.

    I’d buy a TSPP VE.
