    Quoted from jandrea95:

    Everyone is pulling this shit, but it certainly is hard to stomach such a jump on all models. 9k for a Stern premium is just offensive in my opinion, fortunately tons of used games around me to trade in and out, but I dont see NIB in my future anytime soon.
    Were all being punished for the supply chain/labor shortage, and I only wish it were limited to pinball. Ive also noticed significantly worse customer service in the past 6 months or so from banks, parts suppliers, logistics companies, etc. So in addition to inflated prices, were getting less for our money in terms of service in all industries.

    What did you pay for Elvira?

    Quoted from WeirPinball:

    LEs do not come out first - you don't get a fast pass and skip the line.

    Yes you do. They are making a few pros now and LEs go on the line the end of September. All LEs will be delivered by Halloween. After that, I don’t think you see more Godzilla’s made until 2022

    Quoted from WeirPinball:

    you just contradicted yourself.

    How so? There is a multiple thousand game back log and LEs will be made in two weeks.

    Quoted from NeilMcRae:high prices?
    a pro in the UK is $8,183 thats before_ sales tax of 20%
    Godzilla likely my last LE as now LE's more than £10K which is my self imposed limit....

    Lmao sell one or your 25 premiums to fund your next LE. Give me a freaking break

    Quoted from Krupps4:

    I agree with this statement. A lot of people seem to think that just because someone has the money to pay whatever prices are set for NIBs that the new prices shouldn’t matter. I’d like to think that even the wealthiest people don’t want to overpay for things. So, the issue isn’t a straight cost issue. It’s a cost relative to value issue.

    If the secondary market moves with msrp increases then the value stays the same. Regardless, there is no “value” argument for pinball. It’s a waste of money at any price. I hate price increases too but find it laughable that no one blinks at spooky or JJP pricing yet loses their shit when stern matches them while still offering better product.
