Quoted from ArcadiusMaximus:
Can't believe these just fell off the face of the earth. At $500 sales couldn't have been great. There has to be a warehouse full of these somewhere...
*EDIT* Think I found the warehouse.
I was talking to Marco Specialties during TPF. I was under the impression that Stern is not making thousands of toppers for each game.
Maybe 100-200 of each topper. So this would indicate to me two things:
-- If it's a hit, they can always make more
-- If it's not a hit, then they are not stuck with them
I'd go with if you like the topper that they are making for a new game, get it sooner than later.
My feeling is that GB toppers are done and not available anymore. You might have to find a distributor that has one or two left.
I got mine through Great American Pinballout of Chicago. I wasn't sure I wanted one, but I am gambling that more interaction might be added to GB and hence the topper.
