    Looking back 2019 was a great year of pinball for me. My collection was at a place where I was pretty maxed out for room and I really enjoyed the games I had, so I wasn't looking to change much up, but I'm sure we all know how that goes. I picked up my second WCS with all intentions of keeping it, but then Maiden popped up out of nowhere, so WCS had to go again. Nascar I picked up because the price was right, but it didn't last long. Got a couple games I wanted, but never expected to pick up. They came with prices I couldn't refuse, so Pirates and Maiden are in and here to stay. Pirates is a dream come true, never thought it would happen. I feel very lucky to have been able to grab one.

    IN:
    JJP Pirates
    World Cup Soccer
    Nascar
    Iron Maiden

    OUT:
    World Cup Soccer
    Nascar
    Wrestlemania
    Lord of the Rings

    It hurt to let Wrestlemania and Lord of the Rings go, but they had to go to make room and $$$ for JJP Pirates...and I don't regret the decision for a second. I can get another Wrestlemania if cash and space allow, but the Lord of the Rings was an original 2003 that was restored from the ground up. I've had that game for years and I only got it because I gave up probably my favorite game of all time in STTNG to get it. At least it went local to a friend and in actuality, I still have it because he hasn't paid me in full for it yet, so maybe I can talk him into letting me keep it.

    I've actually been trying to focus on the games I have now and add more to them and make sure they are playing 100% instead of getting new games. I got the trunk opening mod and twinkling starlight field for Pirates and for Iron Maiden I had some money for the Stern store, so I picked up the premium translite and the Eddie shooter rod, also bought the LE art blades and got the translucent orange apron I really like the Egyptian theme motif it gives off this way without having to pay the Premium price tag.

    Quoted from LesManley:

    Yeah...I have room for one. In retrospect, I wish I would have hung onto TSPP or BM66.

    I was concerned about the noise factor and am considering buying a loaded virtual pin. (I know...not pinball. ) If it turns out that noise isn't an issue, theme wise I'm pretty excited for Toy Story.

    2019 was when I really ramped up my collection. The trend will probably continue this year.

    My collection didn't change at all for the first year since I've been collecting.

    This thread and some of the turnover around here makes me want to start a new thread of "the pin you've owned the longest - and how long".

    EDIT: Since people are starting to add it in:
    Longest: Xenon - 25 years (my how time flies)

    #39 5 months ago

    Amazing how some of you are buying and selling on a monthly basis. I only sold one game, Congo, and replaced it with Whitewater. Didn't feel like I had much time for pinball in 2019. Hope that's not the trend in 2020.

    What’s is the fastest someone has picked up a pin and dumped it off because they realized they hated it ?(not a purchase for flipping purposes)

    Quoted from Zablon:

    This thread and some of the turnover around here makes me want to start a new thread of "the pin you've owned the longest - and how long".

    Longest game in my collection is RBION. I've had it about 10 years now.

    Quoted from Murphdom:

    Ok, here is a question:
    What’s is the fastest someone has picked up a pin and dumped it off because they realized they hated it ?(not a purchase for flipping purposes)

    For me, Transformers Pro. Played it on route, thought it would be great for home use. Got it, blew it up in the first few days, even got through the entire game on ball 1. After that the game starts over so it goes back to original scoring so you have 600 million and you are getting 30k points for stuff. It's a really repetitive game so I just said my wood chopping days are over and it was gone within a couple of weeks.

    #45 5 months ago

    Hmm...way more activity than I thought when you list it all out. The good news is that I'm very happy with my current line up, and have space to add one, so things should be settled unless a killer deal pops up somewhere.

    Quoted from Murphdom:

    Ok, here is a question:
    What’s is the fastest someone has picked up a pin and dumped it off because they realized they hated it ?(not a purchase for flipping purposes)

    I picked up two this year I only had for a 2-3 weeks with the intention to keep them. Black Knight and Harlem Globetrotters.

    Black Knight I got as a cheap project in nice shape and got it working and cleaned up really nice. After the initial fun of getting it going wore off I just got bored of it wayyyyy faster than I ever thought I would. It's such an iconic title and looks so nice in a lineup, but it honestly just bored me to death.

    Harlem was the nicest original I'd seen and I got it pretty cheap after a neighbor who is a realtor sold a house for some people and they needed to move the game out. I really enjoyed it but it was sort of the same feeling - after a few weeks I just found myself bored with it and ended up trading it for an F14 (the system 11 era is my favorite). After owning that game and a Frontier, I think I figured out that I enjoy playing classic Ballys and working on them, I just don't need to own one (besides EBD - that's been on the wishlist for a while). I can't really put my finger on it, I like them, they just don't seem to hold my attention for more than a game or two when I own them.

    GB easily. Think it was a couple months which was too long.

    We just purchased a new home, and downsizing so I decided to sell off a few. A notable fact: Fan-Tas-Tic set two milestones as being my first free pin and the shortest time I have ever owned a pin, at just about two weeks.
