    If anyone likes cheap beer, superstore has $8 cases on this long weekend

    Too much of a beer snob. Craft all the way. But if you dig it, 40 cases is the way to go!!!

    Hey my fellow Canadians,
    I didn’t want to sidetrack the what’s for sale thread, so am posting here. I haven’t ever really followed stern LE prices in Canada, so I was wondering, what stern LEs can be had for $9500 Canadian or less? Here’s the ones I know of, but I know I’m likely missing some:
    Transformers
    X-men
    Original stern avengers
    Black Spider-Man
    Avatar
    AC/DC (this one I realize now isn’t right, I was thinking premium prices)
    Mustang
    Wwe wrestlemania

    Also inline with this, how much do ghostbusters LEs tend to go for at this time?

    I think u should order an Avengers premium dude! And enjoy the faaaak out of it!

    How much do premiums roughly run these days after dollar conversion and taxes?

    John's Jukes had one like maybe January or Feb for $7000ish I'm fairly sure. It was a Hulk LE sold now of course and I don't recall the condition or details but it's a data point.

    Other than that, Avatar LE if you could find one might be in your price range. ACDC LE isn't in that price range but a premium would be.

    Right around 10k. Stern website has them listed for $7699

    #2859 20 days ago

    The first Avengers is such a horrible game, even tweaked and fixed. Ughh... If I go to hell, there will be Avengers in the corner on free play.

    Just sold the LOTR LE for under 10,000.00

    I was happy for you that it sold so quickly, but sad that it wasn’t Sold to me lol. Congrats again on the sale!

    #2862 19 days ago

    Star trek le or for sure a premium should be around that price range

    #2863 19 days ago
    Quoted from jesperpark:

    STLE is over 10,000 if you can find one around us at all.

    #2864 19 days ago

    Yeah an LE would be wishful thinking for under 10k it seems. I was thinking more likely for a premium since they are more readily available

    Quoted from jesperpark:

    Honestly, for the most part a premium is just a much better buy than an LE. STLE has a much nicer package though.

    I was just wondering if anyone has a decent Xenon playfield kicking around. If so pm me. Thanks, Darrell

    Is there a arcade thread or forum someone can recommend? I realize everything's getting crazy expensive so would like to know the values of a couple arcades at a auction tommorow.

    Thanks

    Arcade auction you say?

    There are two Canadian arcade sites you should be in regular touch with:

    https://cgcc.ca/forums/ (very seldom anything new here)
    https://www.maaca.org/

    Just a local antiques and collectibles auction. Super Pacman has a $700 bid and Gorf is at $400. I'm bidding on other stuff and if I'm making a trip in my truck, might as well fill it up.
