I still love to play this game! Well below what you should be asking despite the flaws. GLWS.

That looks like one built early on.

The Smuag 'mouth' motor will need to be replaced to have it work again. JJP may be able to repair it but you would need to ask - and probably at least pay shipping and also the motor cost. However, I am not sure they will do that. Your other option would be to buy a whole new Smaug assembly (a bit pricey)

Not necessarily, take him out and manually move the mouth, it could just be stuck and needs to be recalibrated. Could also be a loose connector.

Wow!!! $500 for the assembly???

Kinda reminds Me what Mulally said about Boeing.

We don't need to make a ton of $$$ on planes but we'll make a lot on spare parts!

He did it to Ford. 2017 GT350R replacement wheel is $4000. GT350R carbon fiber spoiler is $12,000.

What do You think a node board costs Stern to make??? And aren't they $300?

Hope You can get the assembly working w/out replacing it!

I don't think pricing has settled yet to where it should be on this title.

I have no reason to think you are lying about your numbers, but that is crazy numbers for replacement Mustang parts. If those numbers stick people will be buying them used in a few years and parting them out, that's just nuts.

But so are $300 disposable "game specific" node boards and $500 smaug heads...
