    Default Newest machines?

    What are the latest machines to make their way over here (outside of Japan)? I'm trying to figure out which of the machines that I'm seeing are the newest as I put together a list of top choices for my first purchase.

    And what should we expect to see in the next few months?
    I've heard mentions of a Top Gun machine...

    If you see Garfield, snatch it up; it was quite rare over in Japan--only saw (and played, of course) it once. Arby had Top Gun, that snuck in somehow because it was released pretty recently. Judging from cruising Japanese websites a lot when I'm away from my regular work, there's about a four months to half-year lag time on machines coming here, excepting those that aren't popular or rare.

    There are several hundred pachislo machines. If you have a list of machines you are insterested in I'm sure we could tell you which are the newest.

    There is a top gun machine. Here is a link to the machine in the museum.

    Well, I can easily say that Maruhon = not many made, they're still a minor company. I was looking at the Maruhon site a week ago and I remember that they claimed to have made six different spec types but I only saw it once...? Don't know how many they made exactly, that type of info is not easy to get.

    It's a pretty fun game though, it has a mission system somewhat similar to Sonic's.

    BTW, this is the pachislo area.

    Those are only IGT machines. If you to the home page (mentioned above) the links are on the right side.

    You can get the latest releases, you just pay through the nose (among other orifices!). If your willing to wait for a little bit, they come down in price a lot. From what I hear, the newest versions are snapped up by pros to learn the ins and outs and by smaller parlors that don't want to pay top dollar for new.

    I've seen Ultra Seven (Ultra Man theme) go for 1-2000$ when it was first released and now it goes for a few hundred. But wait too long and they disappear.

    Of course, I didn't read the thread header too close, I was thinking pachinko. But the same goes for Pachislo, although we don't have a way to ship a Pachislo from Japan yet.

    Some importers can get a specific machine but you'll pay for it.

    Click on the company names on the left side and it will direct you. There are tons of other sites too but pachinkomuseum.com is probably the easiest to navigate for non-Japanese speakers.
