You're probably around $3,000-3,500 too high that's why the hate is coming in this thread.

More like 4k too high, huh?

#9 2 years ago

This is a troll post. No other explanation for that asking price.

A lot of estrogen in this thread. I recommend sunlight and b vitamins. Ads sticking around through Christmas so get used to it.

Will you be lobbing up any more softballs in this thread? Flashinstinct got to the last one before I could, and he knocked it out of the park.

Asking for $10k and no pictures? In that case, I'll take two.

Stern did that with BM66LE.

The prices on these LE games have always been high, and the games have usually sold fast. It would be interesting to know what the final selling price on it is.

I had thought the price of this listing was a commentary on the absurdity of the increase in pricing by manufacturers. As such, it would have been spot on. However, as an actual ad... Wow, that's an overpriced LOTR.

Gots to love the price police...

#30 2 years ago

I'll take it, but I won't pay a penny less than 15k. This man needs congratulated for finally trying to bring the prices back down. Congrats to you and your family.

#31 2 years ago

Someone over here in NZ tried to sell a TFTC for $7K NZD (approx $5K USD) on our NZ eBay. He was trolled hard

Gots to love the apologists who think that absurd asking prices shouldn't be called out for what they are.

#33 2 years ago

Yeah there are times when the price deserves a lambasting and call out. This is one of those times. What a joke OP.

LOL, guess who has a LOTRLE in his collection?

#35 2 years ago

As mentioned before, $10K and no pictures? What cajones!

This one was too hot for the Price Police. They called in the Financial FBI.

#37 2 years ago

Yah, his price is high. But it's not THAT high. It's funny to see the same people in here bitching that are posting over priced shit themselves and bitching about anyone who comments on their price.

#38 2 years ago

Guys! This is in pesos. (Plus a zero at the end after conversion)

There's no way this is in USD

#39 2 years ago

OP quick, put the ring on.

#40 2 years ago
Quoted from jalpert:

Yah, his price is high. But it's not THAT high.

The last 20ish of these I saw for sale were 7k or less , how is 3 to 4K "not THAT high"?

#41 2 years ago

You've never seen a LOTR LE posted for more than $7K? Whatever.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

#42 2 years ago

Again, another perfect example of "start high" on the asking price.....

#43 2 years ago

In a roundabout way, the OP is making a point with his price whether or not those were his intentions. Many ding bats here are willing to plunk that kind of money down on Stern and JJP's latest unproven offerings. So why not try to get that kind of money on one of Stern's finest ever game?

If you think his price his too high (which it is), accept that Stern and JJP are bending you over and you like it. Don't blame the op for your own guilty conscience.

#44 2 years ago

I would say that $10,000 might be a reasonable price for one of Sterns best pins ever. This is in light of the fact that JJP's unproven Dialed In pin is going for $12,000. I might be a little biased but there is some logic to the price if you look at the market.

#45 2 years ago
Quoted from jalpert:

Have you ever seen a JJP pin for $12,000? Not until recently. The market is changing. People are paying large sums for pinball machines. The days of great modern pins going for $4,000 or $5,000 are over. THe market will keep moving up as long as people are buying.

This ad has done exactly what it has intended to do: call out the price police! STEP INTO THE LiIGHT! Smile your on candid camera! Bump

#47 2 years ago

Not sure if this was mentioned but that's Rob Ford, funny guy and one of the best Crack smoking Mayor's Canada has ever seen. Sadly though he passed away, miss him in the news.

On a lighter note some dumb Stern loving white guy will probably pay 10k by Christmas. Poor sucker! Glws!

Quoted from jalpert:

Well yeah, $8500 the last time the OP put it up for sale, which didn't sell. So why not jack the price up another $1500

I never can figure out the price police. Who cares what the guy asks. The market is always right! Again the market it always right! If he sells it, someone wanted it. If he does not sell it he will have to lower until he does. Contrary to others I have seen this pin sell for $8500 if in perfect shape. A really great hou standard now can sell for over $6,000. Yes you can still find for under but it is hard. It is a stern top game. The non top games drop like bricks as the market is always right. People think these are investment which cracks me up. They are games and it is a hobby. Supply and demand. Yes they do go down and up in a Bubble. Tron LE sells way north of $10,000 and so does Cactus Canyon. While Lotr LE has not it is one of 500 which may some day. A TZ sold locally for $8900. I thought nuts! The guy who bought it as his first pin and wanted a HOU one as it was pin he played when in college. The seller sold on Craigslist in less than 24hrs. I think it is crazy but the buyer and seller were happy. The free market always wins. The price police cracks me up as when they sell they try to get the most but when they buy they want least. They love to call people trolls when in fact they are. While, that is good business it is not always reality.

People Are trying to get $1,200 for $1,000 games all day long on here, but if you mark up a LOTR 20% it's insane. The same people trying to get $2,400 for their $2,000 games are bashing this guy for trying to get $10,000 for this game that is marked up about the same percentage.

It's Pinside, 20% above value is asked for games all day every day. So what's so wrong with this guy? It's just a bullshit pile on.
