    Hi everybody,

    A lot of hesitation after the stream from Jack on the hotwheels !

    For Hotwheels :
    A lot for the money, artblades, backglass (a real), build quality seems better than stern. Games looks cool but no physical lock ...

    For TMNT PRO :

    The pizza spinning disc !!! 3 ramps and a physical locks. But poor build quality (perhaps not this one but the others...).

    Can you give me your opinion to chose the best for me and my family (three kids 9-7-5 years old)

    Thanks

    (My pinball actually : POTC stern, batman 66 premium, Fire, RFM).

    I think u should play all of them then decide which u like the best, who cares what anyone else thinks? As for the build quality crap? its just that. Crap. Now considering the age of ur kids I doubt GnR will excite them but who knows. Wait and play them all then make a choice. Good day to u sir.

    TMNT pro because that’s what I’m choosing. Do what I do!

    I definitely recommend you buy Hotwheels. It looks incredible. Everyone who’s played it says it’s very fun for experienced as well as inexperienced players. I own a Houdini and a JJP POTC. While POTC is a great game, I can attest to Houdini being a much better built machine. When you factor in the higher price tag of JJP games and the below average price of a NIB Hotwheels, I’d say Hotwheels is a much better deal...especially where you have young kids. As far as Sterns are concerned, I’m disgusted with their poor build quality and won’t buy new Sterns.

    But seeing he asked, I had said TMNT Pro. But that was just because I forgot that Dwight programmed it. So that changes my vote to "Wait for 2021" to see what comes out.

    Why do I say that? Because I can step up to a Lyman game and play it many different ways. Lyman writes multi-dimensional games. There always seems to be a path that fits what mood I'm in. I can play a bash game, I can play a "do this thing over and over", I can play a complex strategic game. All of those can be done on the same pinball machine. I really like that. Whereas with a Dwight game, there tends to be a complex path that overrules any other type of game. It just isn't balanced... and when he tries to balance them, he nerfs all the fun out of them. So I'd wait to see what is next.

    Dwight worried me too as I wasn't into Star Wars or Munsters rules but I really like how these rules are laid out.

    Random modes with hurry ups and foot combos that stack on top. If you want multi-dimensional you will be able to pick a different turtle every time. Kids want a Multi-Ball then they can pick Donatello and one shot gets a MB. The turtles are different but I can understand them at a glance unlike PotC or SW.

    I am very excited about the rules as they seem like Dwight listened and adjusted what people didn't like about GB, GoT, and SW.

    I am not excited about mashing the button to eat pizza though...

    Hi,

    Thanks for the answer.

    Very difficult to play this pinball in France especially where I am (there is a munster and a gotg and a got thats all).
    Hotwheels will never be near me , perhaps tmnt.

    So I ve to ask for helping to chose

    If jjp is toy story i ll go for but Gnr will be an adult rating pinball

    Thanks everybody

    Still my friend, to quote Archie Bunker "one mans goose is another mans gander" Watch the gameplay videos then decide. Good Luck

    If you think TMNT will be on route "near" you, then maybe go hotwheels as you can play TMNT else where. Since they aren't common near you, do you think both will hold their value well? I don't buy games because of return but some do.

    If I was picking one for someone else to buy, since neither interest me, I'd pick Hot Wheels. Simply because I'd rather see American Pinball get support during this tough time for pinball, and because I think Joe and Josh are super rock solid on the game code front. I'd never worry about code depth or completion with one of their games.

    Hot Wheels

    GNR is not going to be anywhere near the price range of these others, either.

    #14 7 months ago

    Which ever one you think sucks the least.

    Which is why it will be the most packed.

    They aren't that far apart in the US, I have no idea about France. I would still choose based on gameplay.

    TMNT Pro 5700 with free shipping
    Hot Wheels 6300 plus shipping I think
    GNR Standard 7500 plus shipping I think

    Edit: I'm just assuming the same pricing structure as Wonka.

    I am assuming JJP will also be raising pricing on this next model. My guess is closer to 8k than 7500.

    Hi everybody;

    In France the price is (tax included) :

    TMNT PRO 6560 euros (7400 dollars)
    Hotwheels near 7300 euros (8230 dollars) (not sure of the price but deutschland have this price so..)
    JJP Wonka for example standard near 8500 euros (9592 dollars)

    In Europe we have two years warranty and this is a good point for all.

    #19 7 months ago

    I would buy every pinball machine, but that's just me... On this decision I went with a TMNT LE surprisingly enough (I rarely ever buy anything outside of the world of horror games). I just love the art package on it. Zombie Yeti is on fire with his style incorporated into these games...

    #20 7 months ago

    Tmnt pro because when playing you can say COWABUNGA.

    Wow. I’d own zero new pinball machines if I lived in France.

    Hi Chuckwurt,
    Yes price are high but it's imported with 20% VAT included. And need a conversion for AC to 220V and 50HZ.

    Thanks all
