ACDC has been a major hit for Stern. The LE machines sold out before anyone could say "It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll", and the Premium and Pro editions look like being manufactured for some time to come.

What if Stern built unlimited numbers of special edition machines, let's call it 'ACDC Gold Edition'?
Would you buy one at a gold-plated price?

The gold edition would have gold trim (not real gold of course) plus everything the LE had and more (perhaps LCD screen, awesome translite, the new back box system Stern is working on, quality toys and finishing, gold coloured pin balls, more powerful speakers than the other ACDC models, everything Steve Ritchie wanted to put in the LE but had to cut out in order to reduce costs, and the option to custom include 6 more songs to add to the playlist, including the must have "Long way to the top".

Would you buy one if it cost, say, $750 more than the Star Trek LE?

What specifications and modifications would you like to see included in the ACDC Gold Edition machine?

Gary, Luci is not ACDC Gold!

I already have a premium!
I'm not going to buy a second.
But if you build some Gold versions I will!

Oh well, there's alway hope ...
No harm in asking, right?

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

I bet Stern are tempted to do another LE - but doubt they dare!

It's got to be better than an LE (with everything Steve R wanted to put in it but couldn't), and more expensive, otherwise the LE owners will feel ripped off. But if a GOLD edition is done LE owners will have nothing to complain about because they got what they paid for.

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

So ACDC Gold could hit the 10k mark then?!


It will be the most coveted machine ever. Those who can buy expensive toys will sell their premiums to buy one, and those who would love to have one but can't afford it will criticise Stern for breaking the 10K ceiling.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Sure. I only have one ACDC edition (premium) now so am in the market for another version or two. not.....

My point precisely! Why would anyone who had a premium buy another premium? I suppose some people will but many more people with a Premium would buy a Gold!

So far 9 Pinsiders polled have indicated they would buy an AC/DC Gold "Long Way to the Top" Special Edition machine, at a gold plated price.

I think we need a handful more Pinsiders to vote "yes" before declaring that Stern would sell 100 units world-wide.

Why wouldn't Stern build 100 if they knew they would sell them?

Keep the votes coming in ...
