    I can understand home buyers walking away from NIB pricing and I can also understand other home buyers grabbing up NIB dream themes regardless of pricing.
    Where I'm confused is the operator arena. I'm not sure operators will jump on board with Pros that cost quite a bit more and have a longer RIO. That seems like a very steep hill to climb in the future.

    Quoted from WeirPinball:

    I don't really think there is a "preorder" system with Stern. It's more of a reservation with the distributor to get one of there allocated games. Each distributor will handle it their own way. I had no $$ down but maybe some take $$ up front. The distributors are at the mercy of Stern setting the price for each run of games.

    An excellent point that many new to the hobby miss.

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    The “parts lying around” theory is one of my favorite in all of pinball.
    These manufacturers just have a pile of “parts lying around” and this affects all of their future marketing and production decisions!

    Obviously you've never heard of the McRib warehouses.

    Quoted from Yelobird:

    F you Stern! When does my Zilla ship!

    I'm hearing around the 18th - 21st... not sure if that's the U.S. allotment or the European and Asia allotment though.
