Quoted from PinMonk:
Do sports pins ever do well? Frank Thomas Big Hurt Baseball was a dud. The flavors of NASCAR/Indy were a dud. Capcom football/soccer was a dud. Striker extreme/NFL - dud. Maybe back to World Cup Soccer 94 for a successful one?
If they had a new Slap Shot reboot or remake, that might help...
Love my NBA Fastbreak!
Looks better than I expected. The local brewery should have one of the first run pros whenever they ship. Looking forward to playing it on route. I'll be passing on this one since I currently have a JP Prem and GZ Prem on order. I could see this finding it's way to my collection in the future if the price was right.
Remember when CGC said they would make more MMR, MBR and AFMR in 2023? Not holding my breath though I would love another chance at one of those three.
Quoted from R_P_M:
Pokemon would be a great theme. Different Trim levels can have the different Gameboy cartridge colors (red, yellow, blue, pearl maby for LE edition) multiple age groups would find interest. Modes or missions can be similar to Pokémon stadium or Pokémon snap. I can imagine a pokeball multiball mode. Perhaps you could choose a specific Pokémon gym to play for and travel as when you "try to catch them all" lol. And imagine powering up your Pokémon on the display screen as you pass stages or mission/achievements.
Just a few ideas. And do t get me started on all the potential ways you could personalize your own machine. I would be on a wait list for sure. What are yall thoughts. Could be a great family pin and competition pin if attacked properly.
Said it before and I'll say it again. Instant buy and I'm old! I knew about Pokemon from the beginning. Ignored it because I was into racing games and shooters. Pokemon Go came out and I started playing that because I love collecting things in games. The younger guys that worked for me were surprised. They said if I like Go so much that I should play the real games. On the way home that day I hit Gamestop, picked up a 3DS and Pokemon Y and loved it. I have played all of the games and I have currently "caught them all". Bring on a Pokemon pin. Hell I might even pay over MSRP to get an LE if I miss out.
Quoted from vikingerik:
He-man / Masters of the Universe could absolutely be done amazingly. Castle Grayskull and Snake Mountain need to be on the playfield. Snake Mountain as a big bash toy in the middle. Grayskull in the top left, positioned so that a full plunge will cross the playfield and enter its mouth; you start modes and lock balls here, and can pick one of those at ball start like STTNG. There's also a ramp at the far left leading up to Grayskull's parapet, representing the Sorceress in her throne room. Between Grayskull and Snake Mountain is a saucer or scoop, to transform Adam into He-man for 2x scoring; an Adam figure rotates out of view to be replaced by He-man. Other shots can be the other heroes, collect them for wizard modes like Avengers. It could have character selection like Star Wars and TMNT - play as Adam, Teela, Man-at-Arms, or Orko. Dear god somebody make this and take my money!
Somebody know his He-man and has been dreaming about this for awhile! Nice.
