    I drive for Amazon and never delivered a pinball machine

    You’re brand new to the hobby and you seem to be in a huge rush to get a machine. Be careful with that attitude or you’re gonna screw yourself!

    It’s pinball, have some patience!

    The companies don't really have stock sitting around to sell, most machines produced end up at dealers. The stuff that was being sold online like that was when machines were not exactly moving

    Will probably see more Stern home editions on there down the road. Who knows.

    I thought that too, until late last year seeing Godzilla Premiums on there. I couldn't friggin' believe it. By that evening they were gone.

    that's hilarious. So is Amazon an official Stern distributor? Or are these sold on Amazon by another distro? I see Game Room Guys list parts on Amazon sometimes.

    Not amazon itself--someone using amazon's platform.

    The game had been out for a few months at the time I bought it so I have no idea.

    I actually bought my GZ Prem on Amazon and it was a great transaction. In the specialized checkout process you pick your time for the game to be delivered and mine arrived within 10 minutes of that window, and in perfect condition, and obviously not from the regular Amazon drivers (lift gate truck). That said, I know of another pinhead that tried it and they shipped him the wrong title so YMMV.

    I just did my search and the only thing that shows up as available is a GOTG pro for like 15k so the fun may be over.

    The game I bought last year was sold by Amazon, not a 3rd party. Invoice says - "Sold by: Amazon.com Services LLC"
