I'll echo the sentiments of LTG: another manufacturer or two will
validate that pinball is not dead and could lead to a renaissance of
pinball as a popular pasttime. I don't think I'm stretching too far in
suggesting that the interest in the pinball business I've seen in the
last year ("Vacation America", Chicago Flipper, etc...) is undoubtably
proof that people other than Gary Stern think there is money to be
made in the game. The great thing about more new machines in the
pipeline means the prices of some of the older games will now go back
to their pre-inflationary levels and we, as collectors, can afford to
once again build up our collections without breaking the bank.

Just your opinion..
However there are still enough operators around who still have a TAF
on location.. and are still not selling it unless it's for a lot..
so obviously their opinion is 'a good earning pin is a TAF'
and they all say 'williams stopped making pins, there are no new pins
so maybe this will wake them up and they'll finally replace their
old worn pins with new ones..
I don't know about returning to pre-inflationary levels. If the
machines are bad enough, the old stuff will be worth even more. I'd
take a mediocre EBD over a NIB Monopoly or RCT any day of the week.

Charles Addams published his first cartoon in 1932
The TV show originally aired in 1964 starring John Astin
and ran for 64 episodes in three years
You weren't yet born when the series premiered so I'm
guessing you weren't their target audience
The Godfather II
Now those movies would make for some interesting pins...

How about "pins", "machines" or "pinball machines" instead?
I like pinBALLers myself...

You obviously don't know many Australians. There, a can of beer
is a "tinnie", and the "-ey" type ending is conventionally applied
to almost anything, even by large-muscular-truck-driver types.
I'm suffering from collection envy so I'm not listing mine.

Anyone who can see fit to eat (or even relish) vegamite can call
pinball machines anything that they wish as far as I'm concerned.
Due to recent budget reductions the funding for smoke has been eliminated.
This operation will henceforth run entirely on mirrors.

Growing up in South Africa “pinnies” was a term of
endearment unique to and referring only to PINBALL MACHINES, or the
playing thereof, however due to it being a US semantical chalk scrape
I’ll refrain from using it except with Brits, Colonials or
ex-pats that understand such terms of affection.

Well 'porn' grates on me like fingernails on a chalkboard. You get rid
of all the porn, and I'll get rid of the word 'pinnies'. (Which is an
Australianism .. almost anyone in (or from) that country will use it.)

Hey man, it's veg-u-licious!
Cameron (who loves to eat the stuff directly from the jar) Silver.
I think the Aussies would probably get this one right and call it "porno" as in garbo (garbage
collector), derro (derelict person), servo (a service station) smoko (tea/coffee/smoke break)
That would be correct-o ;)
Gotta grow up on the stuff. YUM. Lots of vitamin B!
My mates wife who is an American actually became addicted to it. I kid you
Make that "the largest selling pinball since they became electrified."
(Still a big accomplishment.)

>Which is worse sounding, 'porn' or 'pornie'?
Well porn is far worse to listen to than *any* pin(nie) ;-)
>open the "jar" ... SMELL IT ...
>now tell me you'll eat some more ?
SMELL it? Well there's your problem right there! ;-)
I guess this means that if I ever get back into pinball, I should not
follow-up on my idea to implement a Vegamite dispenser!
