    Scrolling through these posts makes it pretty clear...buying NIB pins that you have never seen, touched, or played is not too bright. On those pins, the consumers don't make the market; the dealers make the market, then manufacturers join in to build the hype. And don't forget! There will ONLY be XXX of the super rare ultra desirable limited editions! Reminds me of my kid talking about Pokemon cards in the 90's.

    And the thought of so many people paying in full for games from...let's be generous and call them "boutique" manufacturers...is insane.

    Just like on cars and boats and RV's, it is easy to lose a lot of money buying something new. You would lose less $ if someone broke into your house and stole three or four EMS than taking the hit on a NIB.

    Quoted from pinmister:

    I too am a hoarder so as games become keepers-pricing goes out the window. I really do not care about machines losing value, when they bring such tremendous amounts of enjoyment. If I ever sell X-MEN LE, Star Wars LE, Ghostbusters LE, Avengers LE, etc. I will take a bath-but it will be the best bath I ever had. When pinball gives you this type of enjoyment-it is priceless.

    That moaning you just heard is Gary Stern and Jersey Jack having orgasms.
