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?

Quoted from rubberducks:

You don't think Stern were doing it at zero margin, do you?

You don't think it was free for CGC to setup a production line, hire staff, and relearn how to build these things do you? They completely restructured their warehouse for this. That was probably free, right? It's going to be slow costly process for CGC to start making games again. Stern is certainly going to be much faster and more efficient at building games then CGC probably will ever be. Your argument makes no sense other then you want one cheaper. The market has already set the price of MMr and it's not coming down. You can't even find a used one at a bargain price, which means they are still in high demand.

Quoted from rubberducks:

Further, you are right that the market has set the used price of MM and MMr ... but you don't seem to understand the concept of scarcity. MMr was produced very slowly, and there has been no production of them for a long time. If CGC produce their machines much more quickly than Stern - which wouldn't be hard given how slowly they trickled out - then there won't be such a huge shortfall in supply.

Please go back and see every other company that has tried to enter the pinball production market and see how fast and smoothly it has went.

Quoted from Ballypinball:

Yes and maybe the GBP will be stronger than the US dollar next year
$1,000 flights to mars by years end
Its a good dream

I agree, it is a good dream. We'd all like a 6K MMr that costs the same amount for everyone no matter where you live.
