    I have both Scared Stiff and Party Monsters, so yeah I'd definitely buy a third Elvira pin. I couldn't do SLE level, but I'd be in for an LE.

    Quoted from dudah:

    Elvira is probably the best license in pinball ever.
    There's already two, from two different generations; why not make a sick modern one?

    Also because they could now use the same sweet color display as Batman uses.

    Quoted from Bronty:

    well, you make it sound like elvira owners are going to whack off over the pics and footage or something. Its just cheesy fun, what's the big deal? I don't think it makes anyone old or gross if they dig an elvira theme at all. She's really not "sexy" to look at anyways. Maybe in 1980 when the alternative was the sears bra section.

    Yeah I don't get the hate either. It's a business and they need to sell machines, and today it's not only operators buying the games it's a huge home market. So you have to target people who have disposable money. They could try and target a new pinball machine at teens but given that their financial target is a $300 gaming console I'd say that would be bad business. Hence you target older people that likely have the money to spend on these machines. Throw in a nostalgia hook and you have a potential good seller (see Batman 66). Plus from what I understand the Elvira theme was popular with female players as well, I definitely see that at my film house where the girls tend to go straight to the Elvira tables first. In fact the Elvira tables are the only ones they have periscope'd with on Twitter. It makes sense to me as a theme, but it's all rumor at this point anyways.

    Quoted from Britt-in-VA:

    Ha, I was just reading on another thread just now a guy asking opinions on buying a NIB Stern, and everybody chiming in with the QC issues. I was unaware of these, as I haven't really been paying attention for over a year now.
    Waiting may be the best option, but I am very interested in this title.

    To be honest I've never heard of the qc issues anywhere but here on Pinside, so I'm not sure what to make of it. It seems like as the prices go up the qc complaints go up, but ultimately I have no idea what's going on and what's real. I guess I'll find out though as this would be my first nib purchase, if they make it.

    Quoted from Niterider:

    So I still have plenty of time to save up for that NIB purchase?

    Seems like it. I don't mind if it takes a while though because I splurged on a Luci, so wouldn't mind a break from pinball purchases for a while.

    End of 2019 is great news for me, because I currently have no room for any more pins.
