Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Over the next few years most 'red dmd' games will drop in value as they are dated, despite there being some simply awesome titles.

A game's demand is formed by its gameplay reputation (and theme to some extent), not its display. Pins with HD LCDS have now been around since 2011 (WOZ). Demand for classic games has continued to rise. If anything, the DMD era games will continue to rise in value, as their design, code, engineering and QC are leagues beyond the new titles. You don't have to worry about splitting cabinets and chipping clearcoat on older titles.

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

I made a statement about seeing alot of ac/dc's for sale ( 8 right now

8's a flood? 8's dumping? Have some perspective. They probably made close to 10,000 between all models. 8 is a blip.

Quoted from Toads:

I remember Gary Stern stating LE's would never be remade as they value their LE customers

They'll use a "loophole" by not remaking BIB or LTBR. It'll be a Thunderstruck LE or something.

Quoted from MikeS:

It depends on the art package. If the VE has hand drawn art and is perceived as a superior model I can't see values staying where they are on the old ACDC models.

...on the other hand if the cabinets are falling apart & the playfields are cratering and ghosting - I'll be perfectly content with my 2012 ACDC Prem.

While of course I prefer hand drawn to Photoshop, I'm totally fine with how the orig ACDC Prem looks. It's a cohesive package that looks great when lit up - it looks like "ACDC" and the imagery is energetic. The biggest prob with most Photoshop packages is that they're just a collage of headshots. Nothing exciting is happening. All of ACDC's "characters" are bursting with energy. Personally I think it's a more exciting pin to look at than Kiss with its extremely stiff art.

Quoted from DeeGor:

While it's great for people who want a NIB AC/DC, it kind of sucks as a collector knowing that your Stern machine will likely never raise in value much beyond the MSRP. Once it does, a re-run of that machine will likely happen.

My 2012 Prem was $5600 NIB. So, I guess it'll always be worth more than I paid. I love it and never want to sell it, so who cares! Win win!
