Quoted from Russell:
I basically agree. Supply/demand, capitalism etc. However, both Stern and their distributors need to consider the long term effects of always maximizing their profits. Doesn’t create loyalty among buyers and may ultimately limit the growth of the hobby. In other words, the optimum outcome for a company is not always maximizing short term profits.
Couldn’t agree more with this.
The end result is going to be a whole lot of unhappy campers when they go to sell that $11k LE for a lot less on the secondary market
It’s real easy to find another distro in that case
Doesn’t matter who got what. 500 ain’t “limited” by any stretch. Better than the 2500 LE JJP total though
I didn’t buy my AFMrLE because 1000 was “limited”. I liked the green armor and topper
What is really “limited”? I guess everybody has their own idea.
I view my BM66LE and POTCCE as “collectible”?
At least Stern did some different things on the boutique BM66 run to differentiate
Slapping an LE plaque on it doesn’t make it any more desirable! Kind of like my ASLE. But I liked the colors and backglass.
With IMD people haven’t even seen the LE package. Wow
