While agree WOZ is a quality built product, I don't think ST is junk.

I agree the machine is amazingly impressive----but I don't have kids and I'm not a 10 year old girl, so I will never buy it. I'll wait for JJP to make SCARFACE pin, with helicopters instead of flying monkeys.

No need to knock other companies though. I'm a big WOZ supporter. I've got one in my living room. It is a couple games down from Tron (2 Williams games between them if it matters). None of them "feel like junk", and they are all distinctive in their own way. I'm really glad you like WOZ. The game is a blast, and as you will discover, it is a total bitch to beat. But the other games are still fun too. Play them all and have some fun.

Why should that matter? If you like it and have the cash to burn, there's no reason not to buy something you'll enjoy.

Course, if you simply don't like the theme, that's another story.

Wish I were a manly man like you! I just like good pinball, I guess. Silly me.

Maybe a Star Trek pro but not quite,but it is built to last,so Jersey Jacks first ever pinball was aimed at kids and 10 year old girls,I wouldn't have guessed that,it is one of the hardest and most deep games there is.

Wizard of Oz is simply part of our culture, and everyone has heard of it and probably seen the movie. It's spanned multiple generations. It's a classic.

Star Trek...is a niche theme. Possibly with a limited shelf life.

JJP was very smart about picking this theme. Everyone has heard of it, and some people have been introduced to pinball for the first time because of it.

If JJP picked something less well known or was only popular in a niche market, I'm sure it wouldn't have been nearly as successful.

WOZ is for sure a marvel to look at - but there are nicer ways to put things. Emotions run pretty high here (especially WOZ threads). Next time say trash........ Kidding!!!!!!!!

The movie is old as dirt, a true great classic fantasy, its an excellent game but StarTrek is a superior theme for pinball. Leading to this....

Yeah, because its only been huge in the "geek/nerd" culture since the late 60's. Definitely a limited shelf life

All in all though, Im good with JJP choosing a theme I had zero interest in for their first machine to work all the company start up and new program bugs out. Cmon Hobbit!!!!

Why do you consider it a superior theme? As I alluded to, it's a niche theme. Not everybody likes or cares for Star Trek. (In all fairness, I do like it myself, though I think the latest Stern Star Trek table isn't very good--it's a recycled layout for the most part).

Quoted from centerflank:

Limited shelf life, as in re-playability and that it mostly only appeals to just the "geek/nerd" culture, as you put. WoZ reaches a bit of a wider audience.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing the Hobbit pin as well

Audio, pure and simple. if I wanted an em Id buy one.....funny story though I might buy a woz to put on route. I don't dislike it....I just think ST is better as in it gets the adrenaline pumping.

WOZ is a big mountain to climb,putting it on location would be smart nobody would get to the end.
