Quoted from jonesjb:It looks to be about a $300 USD difference, with the FX fluctuation due to the Brezit. I suppose Heighway hasn't had an opportunity to update the prices to reflect the current economic climate. Let's see what happens...

How long does it take to update prices ? Problem is it might be costing them more to build them.

Quoted from LadySlingshot:

You do realize Brexit won't affect anything for 2-3 years. Alien pinball will have shipped well before then. We all hope

Apart from EU/worldwide banking collapse and hyper-inflation everything OK !

I would think that stuff just became more expensive for them if they import parts and raw materials, it's almost inevitable that the wood is imported for the cabs and playfields, I would imagine quite a bit of other stuff is too. Highly unlikely anything becomes cheaper.

Quoted from PinballRulez:

Technically yes, but the cabinet and backbox art is LE specific and is not available as upgrade for a standard version.
So you can buy the standard Alien version and add the following upgrades:
- Shaker
- Fiber optic ramps
- Beacons
(p.s. maybe you can opt for Chrome armor on the LE but you have to discuss this with Heighway as I do not know if this option is available for the Alien LE version (it will be for the Full Throttle LE)

As far as I'm aware the playfield art on the LE is slightly different as well.

LOL, now now, we all know hyper inflation is a myth and legend,
central banks know what they are doing at all times with pure accuracy,
and that magic comes from all printing presses!

Quoted from Toads:

I did hear some rumours about a surprise for the LE buyers. But nothing confirmed yet by Heighway.

Most logical thing (from a production perspective) is that the LE version will get a different plastic set to match with the cabinet and backbox art.

But I don't think we will know anytime soon otherwise the surprise is spoiled

Brexit shouldn't affect anything for overseas buyers for at least 2 years. Even then, the likelihood is that nothing will change for the USA.

We have done our best to maintain pricing over the last few years. We were due to have a small price increase shortly - but this is on hold for now.

We buy many parts overseas in $USD. Where we might make more profit on selling games in $USD, it costs us more money to build them. So it's a catch 22.

Those who have pre-ordered the game do not need to worry about the uncertainty of currencies, as their prices are locked in. If exchange rates go the other way, then we are the ones who will lose out.

We must keep U.S. and Canadian prices in $USD. North America shipping and support costs are incorporated into our margins.

I have the glossy all black AMH with the large monitor. I also have a shaker. I would definitely like to order my Alien Kit with the fiber optic ramps!

Explanation: it's really just a joke, laced with rainforest imagery, that demonstrates my ignorance with regards to the congo being, or not-being in brazil.

2. "Let's make amendes"
Explanation: A play on your name used in an american phrase "let's make amends" (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/make--amends)
in an effort to prey on your unfamiliarity with american phrases thus causing those familiar with the phrase to laugh at your expense.

How can you combine Alien and Aliens??? Alien is the one and only... they are 2 different films... one is a lame action egotrip remake and the other is an original horror masterpiece... the concept and art direction immediately clashes with itself :/
