    Out with the old and in with the new!
    Starting to see a lot of people selling their A or B title Bally/Williams games to fund new Sterns.
    So, what did you sell to bring what game in?

    Disclaimer: This poll has nothing to with the fact that I am secretly hoping that all Bally/Williams games come down in price so I can finally buy a CFTBL and a TOM. I'm broke and want a METLE first.

    None! If it's going to be an outdated theme it might as well be an outdated machine as well.

    Sold all my B/W

    Tz

    Sold TAF to fund SM.
    Traded JY plus cash for TWD.
    TOM will be on the chopping block next when I figure out what I want next.

    I'm getting tempted to try to do a package deal of my Gottlieb Stargate, Freddy and SMB Mushroom World for a newer Stern.
    My classic Ballys are not an option.

    My crystal ball says TZ for ACDC Luci Vault...........

    Sold STTNG & DW to fund a custom MET Pinball Refinery Edition. I miss DW a little bit, but was happy to see STTNG (and all it's frequent mechanical issues) head out the door.

    It was part of a plan that I'm still working on. Have 3 new modern Stern/Heighway/JJP pins, as well as 3 classic Early 80's Bally/Williams/Sterns. Best of both worlds, no place for 90's pins.

    JD went for X-Men Pro
    NBAFB (and LAH) went for TFLE
    RS will be going soon for GOT Pro

    Funny because I'm currently pondering selling BSD and FT for a Met pro, undecided at this point

    The Shadow for AC/DC Luci

    Not straight up

    For a new as in NIB Stern? None. I traded my STTNG for a restored LOTR and sold Popeye to get a Transformers though. I can't bring myself to go NIB and with the way prices keep climbing on them, I probably never will.

    #15 3 years ago

    Sold all of them except fish tales. Now proud owner o MET, ST, Mustang, TWD, etc...

    Zero regrets ... I'd do it again in a second - and I owned pretty much all of the B/W titles

    I'm with ya on the NIB prices. Bought my LOTR used. It's just too much money for a NIB.

    STTNG for Met Pro

    #19 3 years ago

    traded a fully restored WW and a nice BR for a 3 month old Kiss Pro. Miss the BR more than the WW.

    I sold alot but also keep at least 2-3 wpc along with 2- 3 new sterns. Its good to have a mix of things imo.. when I just want to have fun and nothing to serious I play the wpc pins.

    There are a B/W few games that currently have no Stern equivalent. TZ is one of them. I had that pin in my house for several months (temp. trade) and I regret it.

    Most recent sterns are very cool, and I am not a Stern fanboy, even if ST and Mustang are very high on my wishlist - but some Williams pins have a charm or features I do not find in recent Sterns. And vice-versa.
