There is a thread on pinside asking why TAF's go for so much and a few people have said (and i think it makes sense) it's because they made so many EVERYONE knows it, was in every arcade/pub/holiday park/cafe etc.. everyone remembers it and the theme is pretty cool. Its why it does so well.

Yes, I was the same.

I have had two people wanting to get into pinball approach me recently. Both have asked for Adams as a first machine purely due to nostalgia.

I do actually tell them to play Deadpool, Attack FM (and whatever else I may have at the time) just to show them that there are other games.

The last one did exactly that then purchased an Adams from Ebay without even asking my opinion 🤣🤣🤣

As an ex convict who derailed a sale thread unwillingly, I say STOP to whoever is doing this unforgivable offence. The consequences are not worth the hassle ...

You will start receiving insults, then the death threats will follow, the spy cameras in your game room, the insinuations that your wife is better then you at playing pinball and finally the scratches and spray painting on your most precious pinball.

I have cleaned my act since then, but I will bare the marks of this crime forever. Purge your soul by doing a public full shop naked, while subjected to a barrage of pinball parts that were taken from your own BBB.

Thank goodness my nostalgia was for a Tomy Astroshooter pinball (which we still own).

It saved me a lot of money and hassle… 😆
