Like many of you, when I started in this hobby (well to the point of buying for home), I thought around $1,500.00 for. DMD pin was pretty crazy, but took the plunge. About 2-3 years ago sold a pin and said yeah I can't buy a NIB. I mean I financially can just thought it's insane. Now I've bought 3 new stern, new spooky, 10k on a jjp, and ordered a bond. I'm now at the point I'm close to saying wow...this is crazy. Lol. I love them but I struggled to pay for family vacation (mentally). That's when I'm like ok dude, get a grip! I just was playing demo man which I paid 1900 and felt bad doing so. Still amazing. Old stuff is still ok since I'm average. I don't know...it will work itself out. If I end up having to play old stuff at home I'll just pay on location all good.
