Quoted from rubberducks:
I don't see why. Some of them will have had an MMr for at least 2 and a half years by the time any further production begins at CGC ... and closing on 3 years seems like substantial enough time for model revision / pricing change en lieu of scale and not having to pay a CM. Last run of Stern build ones was a while ago, too.
Why would anyone drop the price of something that is selling well and compared to originals is not over priced. That's just bad business. You want it to have better build quality, a large screen, and for them to reduce the price. Why not just ask for them to give you one?
