I am looking for some pros and cons from you folks to sway me towards one machine or the other.
I have saved my pennies and I am ready to buy my first NEW pinball machine. I have owned a few older titles in the past.
Here is my take, and let me know what you think.
First, if I am to get Wizard of OZ, I want the Emerald City Limited Edition model. I see them selling in the market here from $8100 - $8600 or so, which is a $1500 savings from a NIB. Its really is still a new game even though someone else got the pleasure of unboxing it. I cant afford nor justify paying $10k for this unit new.
I think the WOZ has so many more toys. I find the LCD screen a pro and con. Con being, as a player, you really cant look at it. WOZ is such a universal movie that boys/girls/men/women will enjoy.
On the flip side, Star Trek Limited Edition. The pro version is too plain for me. I like the color changing leds and the cabinet on the LE. Also I can be the first to crack open that factory sealed box! Seems silly, but I don't know if I will ever be able to buy a new pin again in my life.
Now, I grew up a Star Wars person. I mean I went to see the ST movies in theaters, but it never was my favorite. When the new movies came out, I never had to urge to see them, but more or less went to see what modern Trek looked like. Having said that, I have played the Pro version and boy, its colorful and nicely lit. I like the sound effects etc. Just not many toys. Mostly ramps. I can get the LE for $7800. That's the top of the line model.
So whats your take. If you were in my shoes, what would you do?
Never cared for the Hobbit, and I have narrowed my choices down to these 2 titles, so no need to say, get AC\DC or Avengers etc. Its WOZ or ST.
