    For sale: The Mandalorian (LE)

    Item description

    So I did a lot of leg work when this game was announced. I called many distributors and got my name on many lists.

    That being said, I have now ended up with 2 of these sought after Pins. I have paid in full for both because I promised the dealers that I talked to that I would. I did pay a little over normal price for both Pins, but I'm not trying to break someone's wallet either.

    I am listing this a little over what I paid so I recoup my money and a little extra for the time I spent getting the spots I got. Anyone that wanted the Mandalorian LE could have burned the phone up like I did.

    I can provide the paid in full receipts from the distributors I bought from to prove the legitimacy of this ad.

    Thank you.

    Calling around = doing legwork? Sounds like shopping around to me.

    Quoted from Xantanian:

    Did I throw out a few high offers to see if one would stick, yeah I did. Why, because my wife really wants the LE and I have the cash to buy it. Did I get an LE? Only time will tell, but I would rather pay someone that is trying to run a business that can often times be thankless than someone that is just trying to flip it for a quick buck.

    Do you give the buyer Anal lube when they come to pick it up!

    Ha I get it!!!!

    Because buying this pin would be akin to receiving anal sex?

    HILARIOUS!!

    So what did you pay for it? Sounds like a TON of work went into this.

    I think the OPs problem was trying to explain himself. Nobody here wants to hear that shit they just want to make anal sex jokes and ask what the seller has been smoking because these are hilarious and groundbreaking jokes also 10k by Christmas.

    When I’m selling a game at a ridiculous asking price I don’t bother with the apology...I don’t need to explain myself. The game will sell based on demand, or it won’t, some short story explaining exactly how I came to the price isn’t gonna make a difference it’s just gonna make the natives even more restless.

    Not me, I’m waiting for the jokes about the machine giving you pleasure directly. That’s where the real humor is in these threads.

    #17 5 months ago

    That’s a $350 add on coming in August.
    Instead of a bill acceptor it’s a....well your imagine here.

    Sorry that's old news, the new ones hypnotize spectators into sex slaves. But they still have to work the bugs out, as it works on all immediate and extended family members.

    Fascinating to me that people that are supposed to be pinball enthusiasts are so hot on these machines based on TV shows and movies that have nothing to do with pinball.

    If you don't want to be "price gouged" vs "ripped - flipped off" and really want to save a lot of money and have a machine related to a movie that has everything to do with pinball, consider this!

    I call you on the woes is me I ended up with 2 by accident bullshit. You bought 2 to flip them for a profit. This kind of bullshit soured me on the LE market years ago and I just don’t fuck with em. I AM OUT ON LE’s. Enjoy your 2!

    note to self... if your entire sales pitch is an excuse for why you're doing something shitty, and includes advice to everyone on how they could've done something shitty too, you're doing something extra shitty.

    #30 5 months ago

    I don’t understand why anyone giving OP a hard time on this. The only smart way to counter the marked up price the distro is charging for this title is buying 2: one to keep to please him and his Mrs (dream theme) while the other one to flip to cost average the marked-up prices he paid. Now he just needs some dumb smug who didn’t do his “leg work” to come along and pays the double shares of inflated price... Brilliant!

    Well know Pinsider secures an Le

    Then goes to moms house and asks to borrow computer

    Then creates PayPal account

    Then creates Pinside account

    Then pops corn

    The OP has made only 2 posts on this form. The above (in the thread about Distributors charing over MSRP for Mando LE) was his first. Seems like his opinion on people who flip this game for a quick buck turned around pretty quickly.

    If people are going to be allowed to abuse the forum for this crap, then I hope Robin at least charges them eBay level fees for these listings.

    Or maybe it’s time to block users from being able to sell on Pinside with accounts that are less than 1 year old….

    That might help but there are currently 7 of these for sale at well above MSRP and only 3 are from users that have been here less than a year. I feel like this forum has become less about enthusiasts who want to hang out and help each other and more about people trying to turn a quick buck.

    You mean like the entire pinball world outside of the close, semi-private circles some of us are lucky to maintain through prior good acts, favors, and decent pricing.
    This is the present AND future you see....hhmmmm.

    Yes I'm new to the pinball world. I'm sorry I have not been a collector for years. I may be a new account, but I have already bought from others from pinside so they can verify I have the cash to pay up front.

    Just because others can't isn't my fault.

    #38 5 months ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Have you ever done anything that you didn't think was justified?

    I was going to ask the same question.

    Look, if you don't like the pin or you don't like the price that's for you to make that decision.

    You can flame me all you want, I got what I wanted. If I sell the other pin now great, if I sell it later, that's fine too.

    I sure don't, so yeah I spent days calling and emailing different vendors. So, because I'm new to pinball I get you all great and powerful pinball squad to belittle me.

    What a welcome to the community! Bunch of toxic people in here.

    Not looking for a dumb smug as you call it. Looking for someone like myself that wanted the pin and had the resources to buy what we want.

    Once again, because I'm new to pinball I should be punished. Lol, you guys are so quick to attack people.

    I get it, you don't know me... I'm a new guy so I must be taking advantage of your beloved hobby. Guess what, you were all new to it once as well.
