Re: Need to raise money for Star Wars :-)

Thanks nice recommendations, i agree on most points. I think Stargazer is a good investment for the future, i only see this title to raise in value for many years to come. Restored EBD a few months ago and can't stop playing this bi**ch almost every day :lol: I can't wait to see more from Star Wars...

Re: Need to raise money for Star Wars :-)

Whatever you do don't sell Star Gazer. I regret selling mine. Very hard to replace game. Along that line of thought I would recommend NOT selling these. They are just too hard to replace: Fathom Centaur and of course Star Gazer. maybe even EBD since you rate it 9 out of 10 Like another recommended, ...

Re: Stern Announces Star Wars Pinball

Like Steve's other Stern games, this one lacks in the art department. It will probably play great, but looks very, very "meh" as Mr. Hide put it :-) I'm not in the market for a new game anyhow. I'm priced right out. When Pros are $8K plus, I'm no longer a buyer no matter what it looks or p...

Re: Stern AC/DC Pro rerun WITHOUT Angus face...

Interesting. Last HUO AC/DC that I know of sold for just over $6K CDN I believe. With NIB games being $8K plus, you have to wonder if it's worth almost $2K to remove his face? If I was looking for an AC/DC, I'd rather buy HUO, save $2K, avoid the potential for cabinet and playfield issues. Nothing ...

Re: Allentown Pinfest 2017!!!

I'll add my reviews for the curious :-) and list my order of preference. I'll add, none of the new games screamed "You must own me". Given the prices, I just don't feel any of them offer game play that makes me want to pay the big bucks and own one. Sadly I couldn't hear any of them. The p...

Re: The Shadow

And the reality is games are selling, in Canada, for USD value x exchange x HST. At least that's what I'm observing. If you look at a game like TWD, it's around $4,400 to $4,600 USD for a HUO example yet they seem to be getting $7K CDN which is actually a bit more than tax and exchange. Sucks, but t...
