    Can someone clue me in as the what the current Stern pricing is now? I know there is MSRP, but it's always a little cheaper when you talk to a distributor.

    Are the prices still including shipping? The last 2 NIB Sterns I bought was Iron Man Vault and AC/DC Luci Vault. I paid $4700 for IM and $6800 for Luci shipped.

    New Pro Price?
    New Premium Price?
    New LE Price?

    LE $8800-$9000 shipped

    Plus or minus a hundred depending on if you are a long term customer or not

    Hard to believe people still lining up to pay over 3K more for cosmetics and lower pf.

    Just saw an Aerosmith le posted at 6900. Ik other le have dropped hard as well over the last several releases. 2k hits are too much for me plus the taxes on top. Huo the way to go now that market saturated

    Fewer and fewer.

    Used market will climb up to stupid prices based on ‘market’ not demand then pins will truly be relics. Man, I want to be wrong.

    AS was $7800 delivered, so that's a pretty normal hit on a nib game % wise.

    Not yet, dont believe everything you read.

    HUO has always been a bit cheaper than NIB. But that gap seems to be widening... just as quickly as Stern raises prices. 500+ for Pro HUO, Premium/LE HUO is between 500 and 1K. I don't see the tax issues affecting NIB, especially for cash transactions. If you use anything else, taxed NIB is probably in your future.

    The gap isn't really widening though. The % drop is about the same. As prices increase the % has stayed close the same. 12% of 9k is just a lot more then 12% of $4400.

    If you follow sales somewhat - you will see a drop in the new title prices (used) about 4-6 months or so after the initial deliveries. Always that initial surge of people that bought right away dumping the games. For me this is the sweet spot and you can get one with shaker, powder coat, etc for less than NIB.

    lol, exactly. Which is why when I buy NIB I hold on to it for at least two years, I won't give you bastards using your common sense the satisfaction.

    A few years back before NIB pinflation ran wild, people would buy a pro NIB, enjoy it for a while, wait for the game to go out of production, and then sell it for more than what they paid.

    Another phenomenon is the "ooooooh shiny!" syndrome where right after a new game is announced, people start dumping games in their collection to fund the new purchase and in some cases drop prices substantially on good games - more bargain hunting out there!

    Not for sure and I doubt any are going to tell anyone. I don't think they are making close to that on the pro's though and probably less then that on the premiums and LE's also. I've only heard rumors but 400-500 on a pro 500 on a premium, 600-800 depending on price on most LE's are what some have hinted at.
