    Do you have a particular number. Me personally I do not care as the LE is hard to come by. Any LE pin.

    The only one that would be cool is 666 for Iron Madien, but they did not make that many.

    I have been a big LE buyer over the years and I’ve never given the LE number any thought, it was nice to get #50 TRON LE though as the first 50 got signed playfields by Borg, that is pretty sweet, more of bonus than a deal breaker though.

    That
    one is most fitting!!

    It seems the lower the number the more people talk aboot how low their number is. That's umm...the only thing I've noticed

    #18 2 years ago

    I’d try for 420....it’s kinda my thing

    #19 2 years ago

    Aren’t the numbers meaningless? As in - just because it says 102 doesn’t mean it was 102 off the line. It could have been 234 off the line but 102 was the plaque they slapped on it.

    That's my understanding as well. Number 499 could be 2nd off the line and vice versa. Whichever one gets picked out of the box of plaques is what goes on the next one coming down the line.

    I really don't care what number I get,as long as it's not # 13

    Yup, just got a new Dialed In LE a month ago and it's #24 yet the game has been in production for over a year, lol.

    #24 2 years ago

    I would t have mind if I got #442 on my AFM but no biggie

    #25 2 years ago

    If someone wanted to I guess you could trade aprons on AFM but I’m sure the number is stamped somewhere else on the game

    #26 2 years ago

    I did ask for number 22 of the WOZ Rescue edition machines that came to Australia, as there were only 22 of them made and I like to believe that mine was the very last LE quality version of WOZ that came off the production line.

    Of course, I'm almost certainly wrong.

    That said, someone in the US (most likely) has number 22 of the original 1,000 WOZ LE models. Is it another Pinsider?

    Couldn't have cared less which number I got for The Hobbit LE, AFMrLE or the forthcoming IMDN LE

    #27 2 years ago

    Nope, just happy to have an LE

    #28 2 years ago

    #1 is cool.
    And #2 is the first game built after #1.and so on!
    Numbers have the meaning you personally associate with them .
    I randomly recived game #360 Hobbit SE I view it as full circle.

    #29 2 years ago

    #69

    #30 2 years ago

    #’s meaninglessness to me. However, I find it odd that people don’t request the certificate if they buy it used. Not that it bring anything really just nice to have. I know JJP will reissue the certificates because I bought a Hobbit and the 2nd owner didn’t ask for it. I guess I just like having them.

    Of course they do. Single digit numbers are worth way more. That's why you have to pay extra for them. Anyone that tells you different probably has a high number.

    #32 2 years ago

    If they are built in sequential order then often people really want lower numbers.
    Reality is that most Sterns are built in random order and then they slap on the LE plaques.

    Also get guys that are completists and like to get the same number game (Woz #44, TH #44, DI #44, etc...)

    I personally dont care enough to pay extra but it can be fun to get a specific number (#7, 13, 69, 420, something meaningful to you)

    #33 2 years ago

    The only one it really matters with is this one, everyone wanted to have #1 yet only one does.

    #1 is worth more, otherwise # does not affect value, imho. I'd usually rather have a machine from late in the run, rather than early. Let them work out the kinks.

    #35 2 years ago

    You guys realize that the number is not the order they are made...#1 MIGHT be the first one off of the line, but the rest of the plaques are just thrown on randomly. Sorry to be the Debbie Downer

    How do you know this?

    #37 2 years ago

    So I was reading all the LE meanings and numbers and why people want certain numbers. I just found out what 420 means. OK I’m a little gullible.

    #40 2 years ago

    For me it was important to get a low number on Metallica. Other titles not so...

    #41 2 years ago

    I really don't understand the whole "le" market. Just not a fan of "fake rarity". That is all Supreme does... fake rarity... and I would never buy a Supreme anything. But that's just crotchety old me.
