Quoted from gliebig:
Sterns gobstopper would have been printed on flat plastic, mounted on a spring from a bic pen, and have screws all over the front of it.
That is a stupid "fanboy" statement making any further argument from you invalid.
Quoted from f3honda4me:
I don't. People asked for a cheaper machine, and they got an option for one now. JJP made the necessary changes to make it cheaper. You can't have it both ways. Do you want all of the glory that JJP has to offer in a machine? Or do you want a cheaper machine?
LOL you also are spouting off fanboy shit instead of looking at it in reality talking about "all the glory". No for a $9500 LE I want all of the innovation, toys, and creativity that was put into POTC, WOZ, TH, and DI. For $7500 this one still can't even compete against Okt, ACHC, or any Stern Premium. The only thing this machine has going for it is the layout which looks amazing and fun but nothing else screams this pin is worth $9500 or $12,500. Those of you with unlimited money more power to you for spending it without a thought of reality.
Anyways I'm not going to sit here and argue with fanboys all day long. I gave my thoughts and pointed out the facts so I won't keep beating a dead horse and posting every 4th or 5th post like some do about how great it is.
