Let me help you understand
Original Dumb Statement
"if you want an MMr simply be patient and buy one later HUO and save plenty."
Followed by factually incorrect statement
"Since 95% of ALL new pins drop in price, I don't see how this is a "dumb" statement".
Followed my my rebuttle
"Factually incorrect, Take any game in the top 25 see what they sold for MSRP at the time they were for sale through distributors. See what they are currently going for "used" and you will find that in fact 95% of the pins increased in price."
If you cant get NIB you must restore to at least a NIB condition to compare apples to apples. You can get a routed Avengers and say "look it has a lower price than NIB". My statement is the rebuttle to the post of NIB will go down in price and you save plenty. I think it depends on title. A bad NIB pin like WWE will go down in value. A VE like IM will cause negative pressure on market price for that pin. Well documented really bad code like in Avengers will also have a negative effect. Since we were talking about MMR a remake of the #1 ranked pin, I don' think you can compare to WWE ranked at #305. You are not comparing apples to apples. I included the top 25 to make my point but later saw that a similar argument can be made for top 100. At the very least the truth is a lot further than "95% of all new pins drop in price". Very rarely do you "save plenty".
Anyway this has gone completely off topic, beyond this I cannot clarify any further. I suppose we need to agree to disagree and move forward.
