    I grew up playing pinball since we had an old school 70's machine in our house growing up. I always play if I'm at the beacha nd pass by an arcade but nobody else ever is. Can't see how making one of these would even be profitable these days.

    I love pinball machines. You don't really see them in bars anymore, either. Probably because the gambling machines are more profitable and take up less space. It's all about the money.

    the game will probably be great, they could have been more adventurous with the main graphics

    $8500, not a bad price a guess.

    It could turn into a collector's item, looking at the seemingly endless cult status of this movie.

    These guys are going to be at the pinball convention in Chicago in a month or so. A guy I work with knows some of these guys and he said they are legit. I might go to the show with him but with new machines going for $6500 at the minimum I would just be window shopping.

    I have 13 pins right now. I started a thread a while back with some pics if anyone cares to dig it up.

    I'm always leery of guys who have never made a pinball machine before. I would want to play one before committing to buy.

    The game I really want is the next Stern based on the walking dead. The limited edition cabinet art is the shit. Game looks amazing, have always wanted a zombie themed pinball machine.
