Considering selling my Spidey and T2 to fund the purchase of a Batman 66. I love all three of these games, but BM66 tugs on all the heart strings for me. Just looking for opinions here. I’ll be down a machine if I do this (I’ll go from 5 to 4) so I’ll lose some variety and that concerns me a little bit. Currently I have Deadpool, Spider-Man, T2, DE Batman and Gottlieb Amazing Spider-Man. (Footnote…I’m an old comic book collector)

Lol true, and even more so than the loss of the title I think I would regret losing my SAM system game out of the mix. Man, I have been really impressed with how solid that game feels.

to me BM66 felt awfully "clunky" plus the code seemed to be a lot of repetition...
SM is a classic with great code, great sound, great callouts, great art, great rules...
bolt it down...as it is timeless
I wished I had mine back...

For some reason Stern SM and ST pros can usually be found. Great games for the $$

I would be really hesitant to give up both of those games for BM 66. They're both really great games. Batman 66 seems like they are sold at a premium right now, and might come down in price in the future. I can't say for sure, but it seems like there are so many Batman 66's out there.

Don't do it. More is better.

Depending on how long you have had the SM and T2 maybe you are tired of them? I owned SM twice and love the game, would buy one again, love T2 also. But I really love BM66 and plan to pick one up as soon as I can get my hands on it.

It's a good plan either way you decide.

(My suggestion would sell one and adding BBM66).

I tend to agree, but not always.

I have all three and enjoy them each. I think I’d rather own T2 + Spidey over just BM66, for the variety…but BM66 is clearly the best of the three.

Only in pinball apparently.

Thanks for all if the input, everyone! Appreciate it. The other ‘con’ with this idea is that I’d be giving up two Ritchie’s (one Williams era and one Stern era). Both of my modern-era games would then be Gomez’. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but again losing some variety.

I wonder if that might change a bit…now that there will be no more Ritchie Designs coming from Stern. Might be another reason to hold ‘em.

My ST prem isn’t going anywhere

I own T2 and Spider man as well. I would say keep those two pins. Unless you're a huge batman fan and really want that game.

#16 3 months ago

T2 is an iconic game yes, but to be honest, also rather boring and repetitive. Perhaps sell that game, add some cash and get a bm66? This way you still have the same amount of pins snd something new to play with.

#17 3 months ago

Eh, I'm selling Iron Man and Demolition Man to get Ultraman.

I just can't decide which is the best man apparently.

#18 3 months ago

I'm not a big fan of T2. It tends to get old, at least for me, in a home environment. I'd keep Spidy. If you are set on BM66, what about selling T2 and Batman Forever? You give up a Batman to get a Batman

The answer is always Lionman.

The choice for me would be to sell two games to buy one, but that is because I'm space limited, I have projects that I'm not working on because I don't have space to put them. I'd probably try to keep the Spiderman and sell something else though.

This is a possibility and I’ve toyed with that idea. I certainly don’t have the funds to do it that way right now, but maybe the timing could work out. My main concern with BM66 was the inflated market…I’d rather buy a NIB now, if the price and availability of a used machine is going to continue to be crazy insane.

Hahahaha, you are a man’s man. Ultraman looks pretty awesome!

Hahahaha my brother has a Swords Of Fun, so we’ve got LIONMAN covered.

My 14-year-old is a Terminator fan (weird but true) so I think he will disown me if I sell it, but I think it’s the right way to go. I actually don’t mind the repetitive nature of that one, for whatever odd reason…and non-pinball people who visit seem to love the simplicity of the rules (and Arnie tells you what to do) so from that standpoint it might also be missed. But Batman is super simple (this is the Data East Keaton Batman we’re talking about) so people will still have that option. If I sell T2 and move Spidey into that slot, then I think it checks a lot of the same boxes as T2. Spidey isn’t a super-complex game for the casual player by any means.

I have to admit I have a real soft spot for Adam West Batman, so that’s certainly tipping the scales. My dad and I used to watch reruns of the tv show when I was a young lad, so definitely a nostalgia factor there.
