It's been a long time since a pin sold 10,000 units. Williams IJ, STTNG, and TZ all topped the 10k mark in 1993 and I could be wrong, but I don't think a pin has done that since.

I guess we'll never know really because Stern doesn't release manufacturing numbers, but do you think GB could do it? Personally, I don't think the hobby is quite big enough to support that right now, but just curious to see what others think.

Quoted from pinmister:

My guess for total production for next couple years:
500-LE
1000-Premium
1500-Pros

Quoted from WaddleJrJr:

Any inside information I've heard would show these numbers to all be way too low.

Agreed. From what I have heard about past games, I think GB could do around 6k...maybe better depending on code and its perception long term.
