I've been saving pinball $ for a while. I passed on GOT and am thinking about Ghostbusters. Currently I really want to see and play the following: Ghostbusters, Full Throttle, Alien and Rob Zombie.

I'm not convinced that my 2016 dollars will get me a Hobbit or TBL, even if I wanted it, in 2016. I'd be more likely to wait until they are actually available. P3 had my curiosity but not full blown attention at this time. If CCr or BBBr is the next remake, I'm in. If it's not, I'll pass. Those are the only 2 90s games in which I'm interested in a remake.

I'll likely make up my mind at the TPF in a few weeks. For now, my answer is more than one.

#2 3 years ago

Stern and Spooky, I am very interested in others, but I just don't trust their QA. I will wait until the bugs are worked out and buy in 2017.

#3 3 years ago

I am on the list for RZ from spooky
Plan to buy "#2" from Chicago Gaming
Likely I will want a Stern release as well.

#4 3 years ago

Stern already has mine. Next in 2016 will be a decent EM project, ,as soon as I can figure out the space constraint.

#5 3 years ago

No one

By the time a NIB is landed here in Australia, it is very expensive . I cannot justify the cost for a toy

#6 3 years ago

I bought my first and probably last new in box this year. Not that I don't want any more it's just not something I can readily afford any time soon. It was a beautiful feeling getting to open it. I actually enjoyed staring at the unopened box for a few hours before help arrived.

I am in the exact same boat. I bought a new TWD and really want an EM for my collection.

#8 3 years ago

No NIB unless Iron Maiden is made.

#9 3 years ago

The only new pin I got last year was a broken Flip-A-Card that I got for free, so I'm looking to shake up the lineup this year. I have an early Rob Zombie coming soon. I'm also very interested in seeing more of Ghostbusters before making any other moves.

#10 3 years ago

GB - Stern
RZ - Spooky (Just played an AMH and it was great!)
Alien - Heighway
Lawlor - JJP

I do feel sorry for you guys overseas. I'd be buying none of the above if I had to pay those prices.

#11 3 years ago

Ghostbusters from Stern.

At this time, there are no other NIB I am interested in.

#12 3 years ago

Does anyone know how to get a NIB Stern Pro or Premium for less than $4895/$6500 respectively, including shipping? I was ready to get one until I was quoted those prices. Last I checked in 2012 for AC/DC, it was $4050/$6050 respectively, including shipping. I sincerely appreciate any leads.

#13 3 years ago

Already got my $$$ for 2016 - TWD Prem new run. Game was fully made just last week (stamped 23 Feb if I recall correctly).

#14 3 years ago

THSE, GBLE, Pats -JJP.

#15 3 years ago

wait was ghostbusters confirmed? If it's coming out, count me in.

EDIT - that's assuming it's the old school GBs and not this new movie.

The distributors don't make a lot on the NIB games. My best guess is that it's a few hundred bucks at most. Unless it's a bust and they have to unload it for business purposes or they personally offer you their price, I don't see it.

I find most of the well known distributors on this site (excluding those that maintain a large retail brick and mortar store) to be very close on price. From there, it comes down to your personal preference.

I think I heard it was based on the new movie....

#18 3 years ago

If GB is based on the old movies with old character voice clips I'm in. If it's the new female ghostbusters I'm out. Also I'm not a fan of PPS but if they remake Cactus Canyon or Kingpin I'm in. As far as AFMR goes, I'd rather buy an original for the same cost. Since I can't find a CC or KP for $8k or less I'll consider the remake. I'm actually hoping to find a deal on a gently used Whoa Nellie, or even better a TBL. Who knows, someone might buy one and not like it. (GOT)

#19 3 years ago

Ghostbusters. Can't wait. Money already set aside.

#20 3 years ago

Stern and spooky and I can't wait to give it to them. Jjp was going to but I'm almost for sure gonna wait a year or so and grab a huo hobbit instead.

#21 3 years ago

Aliens LE

#22 3 years ago

GOT this year and RZ next year. If Iron Maiden is released next year I will have some choosing to do..

Let us know how it is. I'm starting to save right now...

Quoted from iceman44:

Lawlor - JJP

thread asked about 2016 money...

#25 3 years ago

Might be getting my first. If so, it's gonna be between Ghostbusters or Alien and my younger sons will reap the benefits of me being out of space in the basement because it'll be going in their bedroom.

#26 3 years ago

Spooky is getting mine. Stern only if it's Iron Maiden or Crüe.

#27 3 years ago

2016 funds just spent on GOT. If Maiden or Star Wars comes out, GOT will be sold for 1 and the other I better start saving for.

#28 3 years ago

I just paid in full on my first NIB, Met pro

Quoted from lowepg:

thread asked about 2016 money...

Maybe he's just talking about paying for it in 2016. Doesn't say anything about receiving.........

#30 3 years ago

Alien LE has mine...." Heighway", btw....

#31 3 years ago

2016 is looking very promising for new titles among many companies which is very refreshing...the question should be "how many" nib are you purchasing. Im getting met pro as my first nib this month..and after hearing about Ghostbusters and Iron Maiden im going be broke come 2017!

No rules here.

#33 3 years ago

Already bought a GOT (love it).

#34 3 years ago

New parts in a box from PBR.

#35 3 years ago

Heighway all the way!!!
I already have my Full Throttle & love it!
I also have a deposit on an Alien LE & can't wait to receive it! The rumor is South Park is after Alien, if that's true I'll be 3 for 3 with Heighway.

Man, if that SP rumor is true I'm screwed....Ill be all over that one ( every time I think " this is it")!!!!!

What sp rumour? That could be sick. Sp done right

Pete, if your ever up Sydney way PM me. I just picked up a Woz, have AMH landing end March, RZ due Oct and TAG? So 2016 is year of NIB for me. My games room is always open for other pin heads to come and play. Both Spooky pins will be quite rare in Aust. So there is quite a long list already lol

Quoted from NPO:

Unfortunately, I'll likely be away on a 'business trip' when it's released.

I'm still buying, but I'll use the reviews and comments while I'm gone to determine Pro vs Premium.

#40 3 years ago

i'm not buying NIB. Not until prices settle back down to the standard reasonable level. And they will when people stop buying and they can't gouge anymore.

#41 3 years ago

Stern and Spooky. Intrigued by Heighway and looking forward to playing Full Throttle.

#42 3 years ago
Quoted from Zampinator:

The rumor is South Park is after Alien

I really hope that is not the case personally. If they are going for funny cartoon theme then Futurama would be much better IMO.

#43 3 years ago

Waiting for the official announcement from Stern Pinball on Ghostbusters. If I like what I see then I'll probably get a premium. If not I'll save a little more and get MMr. Since my brother put a deposit down on a Rob Zombie I'm set there.

Quoted from Jaybird815:

There's no better way to spend a NIB sum of money than on Met Pro! I don't think any NIB out there can beat it in terms of maximum pinball goodness per $$$.

I've got this. Ship it to my address. I will actively play test it and dial it in perfectly. It will ready to go when you arrive back here where your country needs you.

#47 3 years ago

Those pics of the red and chrome Full Throttle... Pinball porn.

#48 3 years ago

Must have missed a day? Ghostbusters been announced?
Seems like a lot of folks are keeping their money , or still speculation?

#49 3 years ago

P3 all the way for me...and HEP (hey, it's like NIB).

#50 3 years ago

I'm going to get Stern's Aerosmith for sure.
