If this is Stern's idea of a willy wonka contest, they're doing it wrong
Quoted from Mr68:
I've had guys flip games for profit after I sold them and it never bothered me once. I got my price, what the hell do I care.
Its hard for me to imagine that Stern views game flippers as a threat. Quite the opposite I think.
Because that's Stern piece of pie, not collectors. guarantee there's no other reason. it's the same way concert venues try to deal with scalpers that make profit on top of ticket sales.
you think you have to jump through hoops on this kapow title, wait till you see the application for the next one:
I hope charlie from spooky pinball is reading this right now, and he's thinking "what spooky themed pinball could I sell the SHIT out of for $6k?"
Quoted from kpg:
Any way, this is an example of what a $12-15K product should be. Not a Batman pinball machine, sorry.
I'd also like to argue you can buy a brand new ford fiesta (out the door with tax) for $15k
Yes I know it's not a limited anything, but think about what it takes to build a car.. EPA regulations, crash testing, every part has to pass strict automotive regulations because people's lives are at stake if there's even a software glitch. If there ARE any issues (including cosmetic that affects many cars) a recall is issued and the cars is fixed at a dealer.
Quoted from vid1900:
You guys keep buying them, of course Stern will keep building them........
yea, quit buying pinballs! Seriously though, how does the market correct itself? When buyers can't resell them at what they paid? Or perhaps the value goes down several hundred thousand less than what they paid? Whether you can afford something or not, even well off people hate losing money.
Quoted from xfassa:
If you install the bat into the plastic using logic (plastic with number readable in lower right with bat in the upward position), it will be off centered. The bat has to be installed upside down with respect to the plastic to be centered/installed properly
If they would have centered the 2 mounting holes, and made one screw bigger than the other, it would be impossible to assemble wrong:
