    Fun Saturday poll

    #2 2 years ago

    None. I swore up and down I was getting Star wars. Played it a bunch now, fun, but glad I passed.
    If Oktoberfest has the kegerator option...maybe. But only after I play it.

    #3 2 years ago

    It would either be Munsters or Will you Wonka.

    #4 2 years ago

    None and proud.

    #5 2 years ago

    None

    #6 2 years ago

    Must play before I buy this simple rule has saved me a ton of money.

    Regards
    Al

    #7 2 years ago

    Anymore these days people expectations get let down, so no.

    #8 2 years ago

    Missing option...

    None - must play any game before I buy it

    #9 2 years ago

    Beatles will be the most desired sight unseen
    and will sell well even never played.

    #10 2 years ago

    Possibly all of them if the layout looks good. Maybe non of them if all looks terrible.

    I have bought half of my games without playing them firsts. As along as I do research on them and they look good I’ll buy. The two NIB games I have bought without playing have been the longest to stay in my collection (MET and GoT). Each of these themes has potential, but all depends on how there done.

    #11 2 years ago

    None. I have never came close to buying a "new" machine but thought about it pretty hard before alien self imploded. Thankfully dodged that bullet.

    Only thing that might make me possibly pull the "new" trigger could be Jaws.

    #12 2 years ago

    Bladerunner... BOOM!

    #13 2 years ago

    I take my first post back.
    JJP Harry Potter. Im in, make it happen Jack.

    #14 2 years ago

    None sight unseen.
    I love the Beatles , but I don’t think they will make a good pinball theme (but I could be wrong) . Made by Kapow is a huge downside for me , as that means it will likely be way overpriced (but I could be wrong there as well).
    TNA part 2 , don’t think it is happening (but I could be wrong)
    Munsters , meh . The show did/does nothing for me but the game might .
    Willy Wonka , could be cool , could be horrible .
    Deeproot????
    Octoberfest , I like beer ,typically prefer English style ales over the German Lagers , but this is the most interesting of list above for me . Would I buy it site unseen , nope . Would I buy it if I like the game , yep .

    #15 2 years ago

    I’m really interested in the Beatles pin, but not if it sucks and not if my only entry is $7k+.

    After Avengers (a pin I like but I certainly didn’t like my return) and knowing Stern’s coding schedule, it’s real hard to buy NIB sight unseen, and I probably won’t ever again.

    If it is Kapow .entry level will be $7k plus . Not much to base this on but 100% of Kapow pins have been $7k plus.

    To be honest, for Beatles, I’d probably pay up if the game was really well done. But a half assed job would just depress me if I owned it. I’m not just buying it because it’s Beatles. It still has to kick ass.

    Where's E3? That would be my vote but since it wasn't there I voted none of the above.

    #19 2 years ago

    Rumored Godzilla or Jaws could have got a vote, but all of these themes in the poll would have difficulty selling me even if they played well.

    #20 2 years ago
    Quoted from Venom_249:

    Same - at best. Not really interested in any of these period. TNA 2 would be the exception, but no way a blind buy. I can't think of a title I would blind buy - any dream theme I can think of could be made into a crap game, so...

    I'd never give Stern money after the Godzilla thing

    #23 2 years ago

    None...i thought star wars would be a slam dunk. Glad i played it a bunch first...

    +1 on that Travish! Jaws is theme top contender.

    Universal Studios or Walt Disney World the Pinball machine.

    A pinball machine based off all of the attractions, assets and themes they have in the park. You would get many licenses in one pin. It would cover everything. Very hard to get tired of a pin that would have so much different content. It would be difficult getting all to sign off. But it would be a huge win for ALL parties involved. Huge branding potential. It would sell like crazy. Such a huge market it would reach. Pinball enthusiasts as well as Theme park super fans. This is a global brand. Who knows maybe someone is already working on this project. I think it could have the potential of being the best selling pin ever!

    #26 2 years ago

    None (from the poll).

    However, if there was a Masters Of The Universe pinball machine, I would buy it before playing it.

    #27 2 years ago

    Would need to be a dream theme.
    If STERN makes:
    Evil Dead
    G.I. Joe (cartoon)
    I would buy one without playing 1st.

    #28 2 years ago

    None really fit me. Oktoberfest theme wise is probably the best for me but American...I'll wait. Themes don;t mean a ton...so probably Munsters but I'm not looking at the moment (depending on designer)

    Led Zeppelin, Queen, GI Joe or Transformers 80’s cartoon, Robotech.

    #30 9 months ago

    Ninja turtles

    #31 9 months ago

    Jussie smollett goes to the glory hole

    #32 9 months ago

    Rick and Morty would be about the only one.

    Playing any of the others would probably only further deter me from wanting to own them.
