I have to admit I've been loving pinball's recent return to simplified layouts with super fast non stop game play. And TNA has been no slouch in that department. Terrific game.

However, it is always tempting to get something new and in my current budget, it would be hard to keep it and also buy another NIB game. After my feeble attempt to acquire a Supreme, and those still commanding $40k plus, I see the Beatles as an opportunity to get something within my price range.

I have also considered Primus, and although I love the music, the layout reminds me a bit too much of WNBJM and that is so 2015.

It's a shame, Beatles would have gone so well next to that BM66 ...

#3 5 months ago

Really it's aboot rotation and can you move it out a little later and keep well value. If you can then I say get the new blood in. But damn $2500 is steeeep

You can turn the volume down and I'd really like to see how it plays compared to classic Sterns

I played a Beatles the other day and put the high score on it. Actually the music was a lot less annoying than some of the other rock themed games I have sampled over the last couple years. It was also very fast and I was able to make the loop shot over and over.

The only thing I'd change is it would get a two inch flipper for the upper left one. And of course, charge less for the thing.

There isn’t a poll question for a cash sale.

Basically it means trade or sell and add cash. It's still trading one for another.

Not worth it. Keep tna. imho.

Quoted from Phat_Jay:

Not worth it. Keep tna. imho.

Funny, as many had said TNA was not worth it. Compared to what else was out there at the time, I thought it was well worth it and still do.

So have we now taken that up another notch?

That isn't saying much.

#10 5 months ago

I predict boredom shortly afterwards if you sell or trade TNA for Beatles.

#11 5 months ago

As long as the guy with "The Beatles" is willing to add cash for the sure to rise in value TNA , I'd say go for it!

#12 5 months ago

get spiderman home and see if you can download the supreme code to it, brick it, and then still be better off cause you have a TNA and not a beatles

#13 5 months ago

Don’t do it Spicoli.
Wait for the second re-skin Seawitch 2: Into the Maelstrom aka Seawitch’s Revenge.

Beatles sucks!
(Or was I supposed to say that about Primus? )

#14 5 months ago

Beatles is a 50 year old geriatric theme right? Why bother?

#15 5 months ago

I like the playfield on The Beatles a lot more than TNA, but I don't really know about The Beatles software since I haven't gotten to play one yet. So at that rate I might as well just get a Seawitch.

#16 5 months ago

I’ve always maintained tna had a place in a collection. Now Beatles...just don’t interest me. That’s me. Nothin against them, I was perplexed by sterns decision to basically do a rehash rather than a new design so that is affecting my opinion. I didn’t get Batman 66 either. I guess I’m too young to get either. This is just my opinion, and I’m only an expert on one thing, my opinion

What about oktobermonkeygrabassfest?

#17 5 months ago

I like both a lot. I think The Beatles is the better game but $2500 is a lot of coin and TNA is a better build quality.

#18 5 months ago

Not many other choices when it comes to new games lately?

#19 5 months ago

I will seriously disagree with TNA being a better build quality. All of my Spooky games have had far more issues than my Stern games, and TNA is no exception.

#20 5 months ago

Well, my TNA playfield is still smooth as a baby's bottom, but when I sold my BM66, it's playfield looked like the surface of the moon. The buyer didn't seem to care though and it went on location and did pretty good coin drop.

I had no real problems with either game though. TNA's cabinet sure seems to be built like a tank.

Hey, I just buy them to play them and hope that doesn't get old before looking at them does.

#21 5 months ago

OD, just get a Mafia and be done with it

Wasn't referring to any issues. Just as far as playfield quality and cabinet quality.

#23 5 months ago
Quoted from jgentry:

Agree to disagree I guess, but I don't plan on buying any more Spooky games after getting every major release of theirs up to this point. Stern is cheaper (of course The Beatles is an exception here hence why I didn't buy it) and my Stern games don't go out of service constantly like my Spooky games do.

#24 5 months ago

I say go for it. I think Beatles will hold its value for the most part. I'm starting to look at the simpler games myself.

#25 5 months ago

Well if we are going to comment on PF quality JJP is severely lacking on POTC.

Let’s see, Dimples, No Cliffys(lots of people with scoop and hole wear) after 1.5 months.

Let’s be honest when we criticize, no fan club bs.

I’m happy with my POtC but let’s be real.

You already know the answer Odiner. Beatles or TNA? Put the crack pipe down because nobody cares about a few F ing dimples!

I'm not sure how we are disagreeing. You are talking about design and qc issues. I'm talking about the actual quality of the game components.

? I thought we were comparing tna to The Beatles. Sorry your potc has had some issues.

O-din cash out and grab a Beatles while you can

Personally I would also call the parts that allow the game to function game components, but maybe that's just me.

#30 5 months ago

is beatles really rock? i would say more like pop. anyway i do prefer beatles more than tna.

I got real excited when I saw you unboxing that Supreme today. Got another one of those?

I’ve been lucky with only minor stuff but some of the other guys not so much.

I think the quality on this Beatles machine so far is superb but maybe that because Kapow has more of a handle on The QC.

Treat yourself to a Christmas gift. You added a ramp to your TNA, I think that says it all. Can always resell Beatles.

#34 5 months ago

I always do treat myself to an X-Mas gift. Whether it is a power steering pump that the car needs, or some new underwear, or even one year I bought a Tamiya Super Blackfoot. But I never really go overboard for the holidays.

Quoted from WolfManCat:

Can always resell Beatles.

The question is to who though?

I'm not sure how long this Beatle mania will last with most of their original fans that are still alive just happy to find their dentures in the morning.

#35 5 months ago

Does your TNA still have a ramp in it?

#36 5 months ago
Quoted from ectobar:

Does your TNA still have a ramp in it?

No. I found it slowed gameplay like most ramps tend to do and I like my games fast!

My reflexes are still sharp as a hunting knife.

Just gotta have faith. Go the distance. If you buy it they will come. Ease his pain.

There is no doubt about it o-din. Lots and lots of thought, and only you can think this stiff up lol.

Just feel lucky I don't start them at 3:00 AM anymore when inspiration really strikes.

That's the best time. 3am after about 10-12 beers. Thats when you're at your best!

Beatles sucks!
(Or was I supposed to say that about Primus?

I have come to the conclusion that a Primus pin wth a Beatles layout would really suck. So I am keeping TNA for now.

#44 5 months ago

I’ve played both and Beatles is just simply a much better shooting game then tna and it has a ton of more stuff to do in it then tna.

If you like new basic designs just buy a Thunderbirds people are practically giving them away.

TNA has a kickass light show, awesome music and sounds but kinda a clunky layout-still fun

Beatles has a good known layout, great music, etc. but I feel it is a $4000 game and is overpriced. The market may determine pricing on these and I do not see them flying off the shelves. May settle closer to $5500 down the road?

I would rather have something like a nice Embryon and a Paragon for the same amount of monies.

It does sound like you have had your time with TNA and are ready to move on and find something new. May I suggest diving back into the moderns and trying a JJP POTC, Dialed In, Monster Bash, Star Wars Premium, or Munsters(right up your alley)

No you may not, and no they are not. But thanks anyway.

Pam is staying put
I have the O-Din lineup going on -BW, Gladiators, and DH all in a row(just got rid of Skateball)
Now I just need one more to make it official and that is Earthshaker(you ready to send that my way?) Then I can be as cool as Spicoli.

Dude you have not even scratched the surface-been there done that? Wait a bit-you will want a Munsters(trust me). May need some help from Nimble to get you back into fast moderns that kick you in the nuts and take no prisoners.

Maybe an IMDN premium has your name on it?
