    Prices have been going up and people complaining for as long as I have been in the hobby. You honestly expect prices to never change? Prices are rising on just about everything. It sucks but at least with pinball you don't have to buy.

    Quoted from PismoArcade:

    Same here. I remember at the time thinking $3799 was outrageous for a NIB pin.
    I sold it a couple of years ago and I kick myself daily.

    With inflation that's around $5900 today. Decent one worth as much or more today as well. People always complain about buying prices but don't hear anyone complain about prices when selling a pin. Nobody seems to be complaining about LE prices crossing $10000. Why? Because you can flip them for much more.

    Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

    He said although they do consider potential resale value, it typically not the driving force behind the purchase decision.

    Why not? High resale value is one of the major reasons individuals buy nib especially LE. In some cases, you might even make money. If games are earning well and you can sell games for close to what you paid for them, I don't see how a price increase makes much difference.
