In case anyone missed the press release. These will likely sell out instantly regardless of the price in the current market. Stern is killing it.

"call for price"

Is it another experiment to find a price ceiling like Beatles Diamond?

#3 35 days ago

More Elviras. I am all for it. Don't tell the angry group in the LOV thread that more are being made. lol

#4 35 days ago

Stern stole my purple trim!

Yeah, Elvira is one of the greats and I’m sure this version will go for ridiculous money. The good news is that the game is exactly the same between all models. Can’t go wrong with any of them.

Due to the limited nature I wouldn't be surprised if they intentionally left that out so distributors could list it at whatever price above MSRP they want. Elvira collectors are hard core and the line to meet her at the expo a few years back was huge. People will be tripping over themselves to get one. This is why no LE/SLE is sacred and this will be the version to own down the road.

Didn't they also keep pushing back the production on this one for a while? I think some have been waiting at least a year for theirs.

A lot of pent up demand for this one, especially after the code was finished.

#9 35 days ago

My distrib said he thinks the price will be $20k. So it's basically an SE with different color trim and $5k higher price.

I'm just hoping we get another big code update out of the deal!

#10 35 days ago

If you're a distributor and have one, please reach out to me. I would like to order one of these.

Lyman is gone and the game seems finished. Just saying, nothing special came out of Catwoman Batman 66

#12 35 days ago

Does Elvira sign stuff like this as Elvira, or Cassandra? Or both?

Sharp looking game!

#13 35 days ago

Game should be around +-15999 euro

#14 35 days ago

Nuts. My distributor is suggesting price could be "far north of $25K+" (his words)

#15 35 days ago

3 distributors on east coast said Sold out already.

#16 35 days ago

i heard it's got a piece of her first bed sheet set, from when she was in her 20's. it's only a 200-thread count, but let's give her a break, she was young and broke at the time.

Find a new distro! Stern just told it’s around 16k euro landed in Europe . Crazy distro s making money!

#18 35 days ago

I was quoted $20k dealer cost as well
I was interested but not at that price

#19 35 days ago

WTF!

Looks nice and all... but I mean is anybody seriously buying this that's not intending to flip it? I mean 20k for some purple, the number 40 on the translite, and a shooter rod and a trading card?

Anyhoo, enjoy and thanks for keeping Stern profitable so they can keep making fun games.

#21 35 days ago

50 for Europe
29 for the rest of the world

If the hyper-chrome embossed decals are anything like BM66SLE it will look stunning in person. I'm sure a lot will buy to flip but think eventually they will find their way into hard core Elvira fans collections who want to have the nicest and most limited edition.

#23 35 days ago

20k and no topper!
I'm out.

#24 35 days ago

This is Beatles Diamond Edition 2.0. Charging $5k - $10k+ over base model prices simply for different armour, backglass and decals. What a joke.

Hope ya'll can find one. Did they really not include the topper?

#26 35 days ago

The 40th anniversary topper is an extra $4000.00.

Just heard from two distros...25k and 28,999. FU Stern!

#28 35 days ago

Glad I already have mine! Suck it Gary!!!

#29 35 days ago

$25,000? It's a premium with decorations, right?

Glad to see Cassandra's coming out has not impacted her earning ability one bit. Buy 'em up guys!

Go with the 25K. Seems like a better deal!

Sure. But 2.5 times the price?

Quoted from kidchrisso:

I don't think Stern is setting these crazy prices and it's the distributors. Can you blame them when you see games like POTC selling for 25K+ and games like MMr Royal for 15-20K? It's the buyers paying these asinine prices who continue to drive up the market. I would be pissed at Stern if I was an owner of a Elvria LE/SLE because you got that thinking it would be the nicest and most limited models. I feel their pain because I owned a BSM when they vaulted Spidey with the comic art.

#37 35 days ago

It looks good overall (and I'm sure its stunning in person), but I have three issues. The 40th anversery logo on the cabinet could have been in a better location, I'm not a fan of the head art, and I'm not sure what to think of purple blood armour?

Slap in the face to LE and SLE owners.

Quoted from BackFlipper:

More Elviras. I am all for it. Don't tell the angry group in the LOV thread that more are being made. lol

If you’re referring to MY comments in that thread…there is no ANGER. There is only: “OK. I see how they are doing it. I will keep this in mind for future purchases.” As an Elvira LE owner, I WELCOME this. It is all part of ‘the game’, and I am for a free-market economy. It does have an effect on prices and collectors’ future purchases - good or bad.

#40 35 days ago

Yikes! I bet they find a way to manufacture and sell these before the end of December, unlike all the Mandos, JPs, Deadpools and what not that have been delayed endlessly over the year.

#41 35 days ago
Quoted from playtwowin:

True. But I don't think Stern cares about that anymore. They know they will sell out of all their limited editions within a few minutes, no matter what they do moving forward.

#42 35 days ago
Quoted from kidchrisso:

I ain’t mad at ya, Stern. My LE purchase seems like a BARGAIN now, and I didn’t buy it to ‘flip’, or as an ‘investment’. It’s a fun title that I have parked next to my beautiful ‘Scared Stiff’ for the long-haul.

#43 35 days ago
Quoted from playtwowin:

Slap in the face to LE and SLE owners.

*edit* here were my thoughts from the EHoH owners thread:

It's pretty much a crap move towards the LE/SLE owners - but I guess the impact is softened as the value of the LE/SLEs will be unaffected. But still - it's a "limited edition" game on top of the limited editions already made.

It's an even bigger crap move towards all of the people waiting on Prems. It's basically Stern saying - "we had the parts to build 200 more Prems, but we'd like to make an extra $1.5M profit on 200 "40th" editions instead".

#44 35 days ago

Heard the run is in December

Good thing Tesla hit 1050 today, sold some shares, can use it buy pinball. So much for retirement... pinball ruined it.

Quoted from TreyBo69:

Catwoman Batman 66 wasn't $25k either. Supposedly they shot video with Elvira for 8+ more movies (all the movies that have characters depicted on the backglass) - so there's a chance it will get an update at some point. They don't need Lyman - any coder worth his salt could add in additional random modes.

I wonder if this means ACDC Luci, Star Wars Comic Prem, BM66 Catwoman are a thing of the past? Why make 200 more games priced at $8k when you can make 200 more priced at $25k?
