    I don't remember ever seeing a price increase this high all at once. Pretty crazy.

    I played GnR last weekend and thought it was great, but man, how high can these prices keep climbing? I know demand is through the roof on this one, and no doubt this had a lot to do with them raising the price by $1k..."because they can."

    The question I have is whether this means the next JJP LE will be priced at $10,500.00 from day one?

    Or is this $1k price increase limited to GnR?

    I guess I was one of the "lucky" ones, as I placed my order for GnR LE the day before the price hike.

    The funny thing is that I was literally in the middle of asking for my refund back (the next day) after receiving a more accurate date for receiving the pin. I just didn't feel that I had the stomach to wait that long. Then I get a text from my distributor (after he had already agreed to give me my deposit back) telling me about the $1k price increase. I told him to give me a few hours to think it over.

    In the end, I told him I was going to stay in.

    The reasons? 1) I have played the pin, I like it, and it looks fantastic; 2) FOLO

    So if JJP raised the price by $1k in order to prevent people from asking for deposits back, it worked...at least on me. And I feel like I have been completely manipulated!

    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Lamburger would be right except *I* know of another Canadian distributor who has sold 256 preorder spots for GNR with the new pricing structure.
    No matter how you look at it, that more than makes up for the "Lamburger Loss" in this market. JJP prevails!

    If this is true, I will truly never get my game.

    Quoted from rotordave:

    When you figure out that marketers are constantly using FOMO as their main marketing tool these days, it’s very easy to step off the hype train.

    These days?

    This is hardly anything new. Companies using FOMO as a marketing tool has been going on since forever.

    Quoted from PtownPin:

    Wow .... total BS on JJP's part .... so essentially their saying theres ZERO warranty on the play fields? Is this in writing somewhere?

    I was reminded recently from a JJP distributor that there is no warranty at all to anyone but the original purchaser. So if you buy a GNR from anyone other than a JJP distributor, you have no warranty.

    Quoted from PtownPin:

    I'm aware of that policy; however this policy of not replacing play fields under any circumstance is a new one....

    And both policies suck
