As a person with over five pins, I couldn't disagree more. What I buy, and when, is very much dictated by price. Everyone has a budget. While a $500 pin purchase may not make me lose much sleep at night, I am definitely not in the market for a $20,000 LE or a $14,000 Addams.
Quoted from CrazyLevi:
We aren't anywhere near the crest, and pinball is still "cheap." Maybe not as ridiculously undervalued as it was 10-15 years ago, but still a long ways to go.
I am with CrazyLevi, prices if you are wishing for prices to fall you are wishing for a pretty deep recession to slow buying down which will also, BTW, kill the manufacturers which will lower production which will reduce supply of NIB which will reduce supply of resale which will keep prices stable (there might be a few fire sales from stressed sellers, just like there are still a few bargains to be had today from uninformed sellers).
